@marcus

Glad you liked it! Definitely one of my more challenging entries to write.

@sander

Thanks. I thought that might make for an interesting plot point for this and future entries. Should be fun to see where it goes.

At any rate, again this was one of my more difficult entries. It was tough to write those last couple of scenes to give the reader an idea of the intimacy Selana and Veril felt while still keeping it tasteful and within the rules of the forum. Not to mention that it covered both a scandal within the Romulans as a race (a Remen and a Romulan?! Unthinkable!) and a hot topic of debates today. Glad to know I handled it well.

Having played through the first sections of the Romulan storyline, I now have an idea for the character who will be taking up one of my slots later. Unfortunately, the story I was writing just refused to gel, aside from including a quote from the Robert Plant song "Big Log", so I just put up the backstory that came to me.

Excellent character It's nice to see one who isn't 'the best of the best of the best', but someone with relatable issues and weaknesses, but who is trying to straighten their life out... It'll be interesting to see where the future takes him

If the Trek series are any indication, the future will take him to the inside of a giant alien time-vortex or to a planet full of space gangsters.

Finally managed to put together an entry.

I was inspired by superhombre777's first entry, and decided to do a piece where the Romluan Character is approached by an intelligence agent cultivating them as a contact, who decides to warn them about new activity from the Tal Shiar.

I also wanted my Romulan Character to be a bit of a Thrill Seeking Adrenaline Junkie, so I have her as part of a small group in the colony who take the colony's shuttles out and go Racing with them.

Anyway, please take a look at my entry here and tell me what you think.

I really liked the way you expanded on the invasion of Vivirant and turned it into a sector wide conspiracy before the event ever takes place. I thought that was very clever.

And the idea of a Romulan adrenaline junkie really tickles me.

Awsome entry, I really enjoyed it Veleen comes across really nicely, and indeed, would make the ideal observer/spy, given her racing activities, much like the idea behind the Six Million Dollar Man of using a celebrity as an agent, I'll be really interested to see where things take her
