Well, I made sure that they "sat in silence for a long time". That was meant to be a few hours. Probably could have explained that better.
On Canada Day, the fireworks start at dusk, for me. They don't wait until after dark - it'snot completely dark until almost 10:00.
I enjoyed writing this one. It just felt... right. I don't know how to explain it. I think I'm going to start working on filling in the 'gaps' (for lack of a better term) in KotOR. Parts that were mentioned or talked about, but were not really flushed out as much as I would have liked. I know very little of what I plan on writing - if any of it - is imperative to the story, but I don't care.
