Star Wars: Dubious Encounters - A Jaeriel Story.
Written by Vizu drawn by MidoriNoHonoo


The mission seemed simple enough, break into an ISB Branch and steal a data-tape, the difficult part is the get-away, there's an entire garrison of Stormtroopers between Jaeriel and her extraction, complicated further by a series of Dubious Encounters with an all-too-friendly stranger, is this interloper simply an enthusiastic local, or an Imperial Spy, and will Jaeriel be able to reach her extraction in time...?

As the Imperial Admin building explodes the blast rocks the city, it's felt even by Quinn and Orchid, back at the extraction point, the the young Chiss girl growing worried for Jaeriel, the emotional wounds of having lost Maya, her Alderaanian friend, still raw, and Quinn laments the fact that she couldn't protect her adopted daughter from such grief, in a way she feels she's failed Orchid... 

Yay! Not only do I get to draw Jaeriel, who I missed drawing immensely during The First Farewell, I also get to draw Orchid, who I also greatly missed drawing!! The First Farewell was set around 5 BBY, where as this is set somewhere around 1-2 ABY. 
Seriously, I cannot stress how cathartic it is to be able to draw these characters again. ;w;


Anyway as ever, I hope ya'll enjoy, and feedback is always appreciated! This work is also a collaborative effort between myself and Vizu, as such if you enjoy this story please share your praise with her! :la:

Aww, poor Orchid!

She needs a lot of reassurance still...and I guess it makes sense, this is only a few years after what happened to Maya...and that is hard to recover from.

Yeah, if anything that also compounded her clingyness, not only does she get lonely when everyone is on duty, but now she's terrified that they won't come back...

Oh dear...and then she goes and falls in love with someone who seems intent on throwing herself into combat.

Heheh, yeah, though by that time she's started participating in squadron activities, as well as training, so she can follow Jae into battle, though not that the lack of training had ever stopped her from recklessly sneaking off before, like at Endor for example. XD

Hakiim stood stoically as Quinn's expression went from disbelief to relief to outright fury as she stormed across the hangar of the Defiance to grab him by the shoulders, even though she had to reach up to do it.
"You sonovabitch!" she barked angrily. "You knew Liberty was going up and you didn't warn us!?"
Hakiim looked at her calmly, his voice flat as he replied.
"It did not matter. Orchid was safe, and I took the others with me when I left."
Quinn turned her head to see Doctor Esteen, for a change the calm mirialan seemed rather shaken.
"He came and got me in the midst of the battle and said I should gather my things." she said. "I didn't ask the obvious question, I assumed someone needed help."
"I also retrieved the squadron's personal effects." Hakiim said calmly. "Everything is aboard the transport I procured."
Quinn turned her head to look at the YT-2000 sitting in the Defiance's hangar.
"Isn't that Azzameen's ship?"
"Yes." remarked Hakiim placidly.
Quinn groaned. "Ace is going to kill you for touching that thing."
Hakiim smiled. "Considering that it would have been destroyed if I hadn't I imagine he'll be rather grateful."
Scowling, Quinn released Hakiim as Jelico scurried up Hakiim's back and poked his oblong head over the duros' shoulder.
"You even managed to save that little pest." she said with a shake of her head. "You're insufferable."
Hakiim actually smiled, at least Quinn thought it was a smile.
"I left nothing behind."

This would be Maya.

She was the little sister of Isabelle Devon and was Orchid's only good friend outside of Goldsaber squadron.
