Stats in the City

I've just added a new Star Wars story to my website, 'I Am A Rock'. It's already been posted on Downtime, but nowhere else yet.

It's the first songfic I've written, and came to me while I was listening to a Simon and Garfunkel cd. Aaron Allston has said he like's writing Wedge, as Wedge is an 'ethical killer', which is a fair point. I enjoy exploring the dilemma Wedge has, juggling his personal feelings, with the way he has to act as a commanding officer. This story is set during the novel 'Isard's Revenge', when some members of his squadron have been killed in an ambush. Wedge, naturally wants to mourn for those lost, who include a close friend, but he knows he has to be strong for the rest of the squadron, who need him to be their leader. Wedge repeatedly tries to keep some distance between himself and the new recruits, as he knows that in spite of his best efforts, there's a good chance they will get killed. But he's too human not to reach out as a friend.

He has to be a rock to the survivors of his command, and to feel as little pain as a rock does. But he's human.
