Wow! That was profound, indeed. But this summed it up for me:
"But people change. Day to day. Moment to moment. We are defined by what we do at any given moment. Shaped by those we know. Enriched by that what we learn. Damaged and scarred by our pasts but also informed and wiser. Our futures hold our hopes and ambitions and our fears and they can decide the course of our lives. But it is the page we are on that tells the tale."
So true for anyone, joined Trill or not, and totally sums up the idea of YOLO -- live each moment to its fullest, for these are the things that will define you, and will set you on the path to whom you are destined to become. Great work.

That was an awesome insight into the Joined Trill life, and definitely a surprising take on this challenge. I really enjoyed the explanation Jex provided, and I can't help but wonder what dark feeling a host would get when thinking about their own mortality. Sure, they would (sorta) carry on in the memories of the symbiont and the next host, but like Jex said, multiple lives also means multiple deaths. It would be incredibly difficult to reflect on, I think, and maybe that's why it isn't discussed as often. I really enjoyed this, love Noah and Jex. Good job.

YOLO applied to the one race one would have thought it did not apply to. It took both of them a moment to finally arrive at the realization but it was an interesting journey and a great look into both Jex and the psyche of a joined Trill as well. Well done.

I love the twist on the challenge here ... While Jex may only live once, it lives several lifetimes through its hosts and in turn each of them gets to experience the memories of several liftimes, while only living once. Totally fitting for this prompt and very well described. Plus you know I love Noah!
