Smurths and Smithies Chapter 26
Jesse and Seth took too many new men with them to Hypori, which is my fault. Tony appeared by mistake for his line in the previous chapter "Ha haaa!... talking to her is a bad idea." "Ha haaa!..." is classic Tony.
Since he was there already I went back and added him to the group.
Then writing this chapter, I nearly forgot both Travis and Ethan as I wrote the first paragraph.
Also while writing this chapter I went back and read previous chapters and discovered that I had no idea where Kris Hawley had gone. He had been missing since the battle of Mustafar, and never even mentioned since then.
The reason for this being that the first draft of the death of Tyco and Reichard in Chapter 15 had involved Jesse meeting Tyco in the Nar Shadda Cantina and discovering that Kris had nearly drunk himself to death over the deaths of his fellow Smithies over Mustafar. Rather a bit like the defeated General Rahm Kota in "The Force Unleashed," but I had yet to play the game at that point.
I may, just maybe, have too many characters. I've never stopped and counted. If I knew how many I might just quit, or be tempted to kill off a few more.
And by the way, this chapter is really long.
