Well, he hadn't been declared a criminal yet, or at least no court martial seemed forthcoming. That was good. He'd even managed to find a job for a friend of his. That was better. He would have felt guilty, otherwise. She didn't know it was him, though. She still wasn't talking to him. He still couldn't blame her.

His best friend... )

I'm a soldier, a pilot. One of my favorite working pasttimes (as it were) is watching ships explode after I shoot lasers or proton torps at them. What do you think?

If you were asking if I wanted to kill another human? Not as a rule, no, no matter what I say about my favorite pasttimes. If it were up to me, nobody'd ever have to kill anybody, but this is a war, and things have to be done. If killing that imp who's on his way to kill me or my wingman or anybody else that I'm backing up keeps my squadronmates alive to see another day? I will damn well kill anybody I have to for that. And it doesn't matter if they're the same species as me anyway. Human, Bothan, Trandoshan, Twi'lek, Wookiee, or cute, adorable little puppy, it's all the same. Of course, with the Empire, it's usually just the regular, average, idiot human.

If you're asking me does it bother me to kill somebody with a face like mine? No more than it bothers me killing anything else.

And that's all there is to it. I hope you aren't expecting anything more out of me.

There was music and for once it actually sounded like music instead of the dying screech of a hawkbat or an ewok in heat or both combined. Hobbie shuddered. That last one was a terrifying thought. But anyway, music. Not only was there music, there was alcohol. In copious amounts. This was something he approved of as a matter of course. There was also a plethora of the opposite sex, which, as a man and a pilot, he was also inclined to agree with. Especially since, as a "Hero of the New Republic" and with Wedge off the market (thank you, Iella!), his stock had risen among said opposite sex rather considerably.

Of course, it was a good thing he and Wes were such good friends or he might be a little put out by the competition. That and the whole "fighting the good fight" and saving the day and everything recently back on Adumar all tended to put Hobbie in a good mood. Or maybe that was the lomin-ale.

Something was missing, though, and it took Hobbie over half of the party to really put his finger on it. Finally, his eyes lit up and he leaned over to Wes, "great party, but you know, it's really missing something."

Wes frowned and raised his eyebrows at his friend curiously, "what's that?"

Utterly straight-faced, Hobbie responded, "ritual duels to the death wherein the parties involved mock each other endlessly first by drawing stick figures in the air."

A bit taken aback, Wes blinked at Hobbie. Then he grinned. "Where's my blastsword?"
