My second thought upon hearing about Disney's acquisition of Star Wars and discovering that they would be making another trilogy of movies was to realize I was going to have to go to the Jedi Council Forums if I wanted to discuss that with my fellow nerds. And I loathe the JC.

I want my DLC back. #TheDLCIsDead #LongLiveTheDLC

My first thought, in case anyone was wondering, was a long string of profanity and cursing. Whether they keep the EU canon as canon or do a reboot, or whatever I'm still filled with horror at how badly they're gonna fuck this up.

Please make it about some characters we've never heard of before and a totally different type of Star Wars movie than we've ever seen. And then maybe you won't make the fan people cry.  

Heh - I think they broke the JC already. 
So I found these guides on a link from Gizmodo and while I'm normally so not the crafty type I just had to give them a try today for the heck of it. I have to say as frustrating as R2-D2 was I'm glad I did it. He so turned out better than I thought he would. So...yay! And now...pics or it didn't happen!!

Boba Fett! )

Yoda Man! )

That's Vader...Darth Vader )

Every sith lord needs incompetent underlings for cannon fodder! )

And where would a future Sith Lord be without making his own BFF? )

In case some of you flisters hadn't noticed yet (like the name wasn't a giveaway) I used to be a big Star Wars fangirl.  It was pretty much my first fandom and back in the day I wrote a lot of Jaina/Jag fan fiction.  I even won a couple of awards for it.  Anyway, that's beside the point.

Early last year an old friend and beta of mine from the Star Wars forum where I'd posted a lot of my J/J fics asked if she could interview for the interview series that she's working on and I said yeah. The interview finally got posted up in December. I just now checked my PMs for that site which tells you how much I get back there these days and NYCitygurl had sent me a link to it, so here it is, if anyone's interested.  

Seems kinda funny now, the two fandoms I was most into at the time were NCIS and the Hollows. There's no mention whatsoever of Guiding Light.  

Anyway, if you were interested and you did click the link, scroll down. My username there is Jaina_Solo_15.
Title: Light in the Darkness
Rating: PG-13, maybe? IDK.
Fandom: Star Wars: Expanded Universe
Characters: Ben Skywalker, Tahiri Veila
Timeline: Post LotF by some years but doesn't take any canon after that into consideration.
Spoilers: If by some miracle you haven't read Invincible yet and you actually aren't spoiled for what happens then definitely don't read this.
Author's Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] rjsteamboat76 and his prompt of hot Older!Ben/Tahiri. Don't know if I suceeded, Dude, but this was the best I could come up with. It's probably more plotty than what you were hoping for, but I was sorta squicked out by certain parts of Invincible and I sorta had to come up with a motivation for it, and this was what I came up with so I hope you enjoy it at least a little.
Summary: Ben screws up and Tahiri finds out the secret he's desperately been trying to hide from her in his efforts to be a worthy friend and partner.

An out of the blue rec from me: Drive you Mild by Obaona

It's an awesome AU Luke/Mara fic.  I loved the epic feel of it when I first read it years ago.  Now I can't wait to re-read it.  It was one of my favorites and it's definitely stood up well.  

Title: "Oh Shavit!"
Rating: PG, although there is a mention of multiple assassinations, but no details.
Fandom: Star Wars: Expanded Universe
Characters:  Jaina Solo, Ben Skywalker, Mara Jade
Post NJO.  Ben is a teenager, but this is very AU considering that it was written before the Joiner Series and Legacy.
Spoilers: None as far as I know.
Author's Notes: A Star Wars fic that I wrote a few years ago and just felt like posting today for some reason.
Summary: Ben finds out an unpleasant truth.

I now have a copy of Invincible in my hands.  My brother and his gf were kind enough to pick it up from the library for me when they went out today.  Now I'm debating whether I want to read it now or not.  The ambivalence that I have about this book is weird.  I want to like it and I might end up loving it, but I'm kinda dreading it too.  Like if I don't read it yet it won't suck.


Why can't I write this stupid fic that I keep procrastinating about?
...to write this Star Wars fic.  Which is bad. Because I really don't want to write it, but the beginnings for this plot are pretty solid in my head.  And the more I listen to the crappy audio version of LotF: Betrayal that I downloaded, the more I want to write it. 

The problems with me wanting to write this are:

1) It would be a work in progress.  That's a problem because I have at least have a dozen work in progresses lying around in various fandoms and one of them hasn't been updated in close to five years.

2) I have way too many fics going at the moment.  I'm trying to finish up [profile] fanfic100, [profile] 10_fics. I've gotten one fic written for the Summer Calendar on [profile] dogged_by_muses but I'm still working on the other one and I signed up for [community profile] ncis_ficathon, plus there are some big things in the works for the DLC in the coming months and I'd really like to work on the book-a-thon idea that's been going around in my head.  Why am I even thinking about more fic?

3)I have no place to post it other than P&P and while P&P is great for any femslash really I don't think there are really any Star Wars fans there.  It would maybe be different if I could post it to the JC, but I'd get banned so fast my head would spin. Which might be fun, but still wouldn't get my fic posted anywhere.  Star Wars and femslash just don't really seem to go together sadly.

The reason I am considering it though?  Because I think it would be a cool story.  It'd involve a lot of different ideas for characters that I've been tossing around in the back of my brain and sort of bring them all together into this one thing.  Which could be kind of cool. 

One day I have to sit down and finish all my works in progress.  They annoy me and tend to weigh on the back of my mind.  *sigh*  I guess the biggest issue is that I'm getting over committed with things again like I have before.  I just have to find a way to drop the responsibilities that I don't want to salvage the things that I do want before everything goes to hell again like it did last time because I really hate feeling like this.

So I was involved in running the Saga Fan Fiction Awards for the JC this winter.  It was quite a bit of fun, a large amount of headache and it also caused me to lose whatever sanity I might have had left.  I rejoiced long and hard when it was over and then I winced because I realized that TEH DRAMA was coming now that the awards were over. 

I made a bet with a friend of mine about the exact nature of TEH DRAMA that would follow.  It was either laugh hysterical or totally lose it at that point.  Well as the fates would have it, my friend was correct and I lost the bet.  Loosing meant that I had to write the fic of my friends chosing.  She chose to make me write a mushy Jaina/Zekk fic that she's been trying to get me to write for a while, so here it is....

Reaching Out

Teaser for Reaching Out

Out of the corner of his eye, he sees and notes the foot of space that she has left between them. He looks back out into the jungle.

“But Tenel Ka can’t sleep and is acting moodier than a bunch of Dathomirian Nightsisters stuck in a leaky hut during monsoon season at a very bad time of the month. Jacen is practically snapping off the head of anyone who come near him and Lowie refuses to talk at all. Something is effecting us, and I don’t think it’s all this fresh jungle air.”

“So that’s why you’re here?” he asks. Because you’re worried about all of them, he thinks. I shouldn’t be here. I should never have come here.

I'm kind of frustrated right now with my fic writing. I promised an update on a Star Wars fic that I'm working on yesterday and I absolutely hate it when I blow a deadline. It drives me crazy and frustrates me. I'm already frustrated enough with this damn post.

I'm also kind of uninspired. I still want to write this fic, but I'm sorta uninterested with where it's going right now. I got distracted by this NCIS plot bunny and it's driving me crazy not being able to work on it. I'm going to take a two week hiatus from writing Star Wars fics whenever I get this chapter posted for a couple of reasons. Mainly I just need a chance to take a break, get reinterested in this story and get a few new chapters under my belt. It would be the best both for my readers and myself, but I hate to do it.

And hopefully, I can use that time to get my NCIS fic written up. Thought from ff.net was kind enough to beta read it for me and I'm really excited about getting it posted somewhere.

Mostly I just want to get this damn fic updated! Bah!

Teaser for New Beginnings -

“Standing or lying wounded on the deck,” he countered, moving around the desk towards her confrontationally.

Jag tripped on the corner of the desk and fell towards Jaina. She barely had time to react in time to catch him and keep herself from falling.

“Hey! Watch it, Flyboy!”
