Good job, Marcus. I'll post mine on Sunday. I want to give it the once-over since it is my first attempt at a first-person narrative. I'll also post the next one after that, with Gavin on Foroest prepping for the mission and learning that Marcus has said no to Troutman's proposal.
And posted! Lot shorter than I realized, and I plan to revert back to third-person narrative in the follow up on Foroest. The whole rah-rah fire and idealism segment comes from The Rebel Files, and was a message Mon Mothma had sent to Princess Leia way back when.
