Re: Discussion 02
Pfft.  Gates is a fireball everywhere.  Except, you know, in the literal sense in her fighter. :P

...and I'm sure she has a spectacular ass, along with a wicked sense of humor and the ability to go drink-for-drink with any of the boys.  I'd say she could hang in a round of fisticuffs, too, but she's probably the type that starts more barfights than she finishes...that, and Jace would beat the shit out of her, for sure.

Re: Discussion 02
While he could beat the shit out of her, he wouldn't.  Might clock her once or twice to knock some sense back into her if necessary, but that's as far as he's going to stretch the 'never hit a lady' rule.

Spectacular ass.  Got it.

Re: Discussion 02
Oh, I wasn't implying he would, just saying that would keep me from accurately claiming that she could hang with the boys in a brawl.

She's sarcastic, she's funny, she cleans up really well when she wants to (because hey, she did manage to learn a few things about style growing up a noble)...I'd say she's not as easy as her reputation would lead one to believe, but I imagine she punched the last guy that tried to take that joke a bit too far right in the face, ergo 'what reputation?'.  She sleeps with her gun under her pillow, she sucks at pazaak, she's a speed junkie, she can't cook for shit (I'm certain she's set fire to something at least once in the squad mess hall), but yes...spectacular ass...

...she looks amazing in tight pants and short skirts.  Neither of which she wears all that often unless she's got a reason to.

Now, turnabout is fair play: What sorts of tidbits of information and/or embarrassing knowledge does she have regarding Jace?

Re: Discussion 02
I could see her wearing tight pants; why wouldn't she?  Skirts, of course, would be uncommon, but not like, tight jeans... to give everyone a treat?  Or would that invite too much grabbing?

As for Jace... hmm... I debated giving him like, a tramp stamp or something, but in Star Wars, the tech is there to remove things like that.  And besides, Foehammer is my resident tattoo-canvas.  Perhaps, particularly with Gates due to her fireball nature, he might prefer to not take the lead as much in bed, which is kinda contrary to the fact he's a pretty big guy, and is definitely a fighter.

Maybe, when it comes down to it, he's a cuddly guy?

Re: Discussion 02
Oh, she's -got- tight pants, sure.  But those are for off-time, and leave (particularly with a nice pair of stiletto boots, which you know she's got just because of the height jokes), not sitting around waiting to get sent out in the fighter.  Because hey, leather pants do look great, but they're not exactly comfortable casual wear, when they're *that* snug!

...and pfft, invite grabbing?  Sure, go right on ahead.  Gates grabs back, at least when we're talking joking grabs at squad level.  Strange guys grabbing her ass?  They get a fist in the mouth.

She's got no problem at all taking the lead.  Hell, she probably hit on him first, way back when, although I strongly suspect it might have involved either alcohol (if on leave at the time), or a dare/wager from the squadmates she would have had at that point in time.  Or both.

Cuddly guy?  Jace is just a big softie beneath the slightly-crazy badass demeanor, isn't he?

Re: Discussion 02
Well, I wouldn't say softie, honestly.  I imagine he'd be more... 'knightly' than one might expect though, when with a woman and not in sight of prying eyes.  He was brought up right after all.

As for way back when... I dunno.  That could have happened multiple ways, since if her ass is as spectacular as you say, he would have been drawn to it.  Ultimately, I'll leave it up to you with regards to how things first happened... and if you think of anything unique or embarrassing to tell about Jace.

Psh.  That takes half the fun out of it if you leave it all up to me.  Hm.  Now I have to think!

...and you're saying the CO's a gentleman, eh?  Gotcha.

Well, I can't think of much else at the moment.  If I do think of stuff, I'll let you know, but aside from that, all yours, and I'll go with the flow, posting whatever comes up, heh.

And yeah, but only when out of sight of those that know him (barring the woman he is with of course).

Re: Discussion 02
*laugh* Fair enough.  Answer one question for me, though: What -is- Jace's reputation as far as the ladies of the fleet would discuss among themselves?

Because then I can decide how things started.  Of course, it would amuse me to no end if all parties involved told differing stories about that at this point.  Kind of like the seven different explanations for why Gates is 'Gates'.

Re: Discussion 02
His reputation... does "Ohhh Myyyyyyy!" count as a reputation?

But seriously... I imagine they would share a common theme at least, that he knows how to show a woman a good time, both in and out of the sack (due to a number of factors, most already mentioned).  Although perhaps each might have had a different experience, like... he tries to change things up to make sure each woman gets a unique experience.

He's that good.  I guess.

Re: Discussion 02
Ladies' man, notch-on-the-bedpost sort, or less quantity, more quality?

...and yes, that absolutely counts as a reputation. *snicker*  Although that's the sort of reputation that's liable to send every new girl in the 7th looking for him at least once.  Just on principle.

Like a rite of passage.  *laugh*

Re: Discussion 02
That sounds about right, yeah.

And hey, Jace would have no problems with that.  Wouldn't stop him from hitting on Gates, since she's in the squadron and always around now.  That temptation, you see.

So wait, if its a rite of passage, I assume they'll be sending Avria his way then?

Re: Discussion 02
*laugh* Hm.

Well...I said 'like' a rite of passage!  I don't think Gates would suggest it, having seen what I've seen of Avria, let's put it that way!

Edit: Actually, I take that back, she might suggest it, just for the laughs.

A pity.  He could probably make her a lot less stiff.  He'd be doing her a favor, really.

Oh, clearly.  Which would really just be doing everyone a favor, of course.  *sagenod*

Gates would love to see him try.  I think she'd get a great laugh out of it, no matter the outcome.

Re: Discussion 02
Aye, well, send her Jace's way, and we might have a laugh.

That said, I find the implication amusing... does this mean Gates would be one of those advocating sending new women to the fleet to Jace as a 'rite of passage'?  Awful generous of her.

Also, I'll go start a new Discussion thread in the morning.

Re: Discussion 02
Hm. *ponders*

Good question.  I suppose that depends on whether or not Gates considers Jace more or less 'off limits' as the CO (even if we know there's not really an 'off limits')...because after all, he'll be Avria's CO too.

Which is not to say that Gates hasn't been prone to the occasional *ahem* lapse of discretion, of course.

I suspect that anything that could have passed as a proper 'relationship' between Jace and Gates was probably a good...oh...year and a half, two years ago, most likely?  I use the term 'relationship' loosely, because neither of them strike me as relationship material, and imagine it was more like an extended period of just having a really good time...that I suspect was already in the process of waning naturally, although it may have been assisted along by her joining Aquila.

Gates has no problem flirting with everyone, it's what she does, but she's not exactly going to want to give the impression of having earned her spot in the squad on her back, either, during those first few months of learning to fit in with the boys.  (Although I have this notion that Aquila as a group probably has a fairly raunchy sense of humor, and that Gates gives as well as she gets in that regard, of course.)

So I figure at this point, Gates and Jace are firmly in the 'Yeah, we went out a few times' exes-turned-friends that give each other a hard time (pun wholly intended) category, possibly with the occasional *ahem* benefits package on leave if Jace would be so inclined.

Which means that yes, Gates would be generous enough to pass along the stories of the legendary Jace Fel to the new girls, just like she got told.  *sagenod*

(Admittedly, she probably also makes it a point to send ALL of the new girls after him, just to give him a really hard time.  I suspect that watching him dodge the more overbearing pursuers is hilarious...and suddenly I see it being a routine sport for Aquila to place wagers on just how many women come up and hit on Jace when they're all out in a bar on leave.  Of course, Gates is always good to get him out of those exceptionally tight spots, I'm sure, with the right bribe...)

Re: Discussion 02
Jeez, you weren't kidding about that post.  Looks like its time for me to start writing two nearly-identical posts for Vira...

Two years or so sounds good.  I figure they could only go so long before getting bored of each other... or perhaps, realizing that good things are best experienced in moderation.  The fact they're risking their lives every time they fly out probably has an influence on their 'relationship' ability - rather, what's the point, if either of us could die at the next moment?  Better to enjoy life and not get bogged down.  Real relationships are for retirement.  That sort of thing.  Her joining Aquila - or even the prospect of it - would have helped slow things down too.  Jace would have been in agreement with that too, since he's a gentleman.  He wouldn't want others to think she got in because she was boning him.

As for Gates though... I really doubt people would think she earned her spot on her back.  Its looking like Jace is more promiscuous than she is, after all!  You can guarantee he would be inclined if the offer was there of course.  They wouldn't have broken up because the sex got stale, I think.  So, yeah, I think you've got the right category for them.

Sounds like we might have to give the group a break at some point though, because that sounds hilarious.

Re: Discussion 02
I -told- you that post was kicking my ass!

Yes, the group definitely needs leave at some point, because that -will- be hilarious.  Of course, if you don't think Gates is going to go get good and drunk at the first opportunity after landing and realizing there aren't but three of them left, you're delusional.

...and I wouldn't be surprised at all if she wasn't alone in that.

Yeah, that sounds about right, heh.  Jace will be there.  Deuce... he'll be around, not sure if he'll join in getting drunk, since he's basically the squadron's DD.

Re: Discussion 02
Landing is totally going to be a group hug kind of moment... <.<...and I do hope you can smell my sarcasm through the internet, because group hug is...

...well, okay, it's not the LAST thing that comes to mind, but it's pretty close.  Unless we're considering grabbing your bro by the back of the head and dragging him off before he can make more of an ass of himself a hug.

Hm. DD. I bet Deuce has a lot of fun with that.

Re: Discussion 02
Well, immediately after, judging by what you've said, Jace may need to restrain Gates.  But after that, drinks, probably, at some point.  Don't worry, there will be a few times where you guys can have some downtime, likely around Port Nowhere too, I think.

Deuce probably does.  Lots of carrying drunk squadmates back to the rack.

Re: Discussion 02
I can just see Deuce being the master of the straight-faced running gag the next morning: "So...remember what you were sayin' to everyone last night?"

...and then just stringing people along for the laughs.  Although I do suspect that Deuce is the one guy you really, really want to have around when you're slam out of it, because he'll take care of anyone.

Yes.  Restraint is likely going to be in order.
