    ::Throws her arms around Ewan, then Fluke, then SOTTOT co-auths, then Gandolf, then salutes Clarus, wherever she is. Grabs the box of tissues that she left in her purse, just in case, and runs for the stage, trying not to scream.::

    Darn it, you people, I'm about to burst into tears in the middle of the Lee Library!

    Well...

    ::Unfolds the little piece of paper with her speech on it with trembling hands.::

    I'll quote a great person, namely MzAmythestCrow, who once said: "Oh...my.....GOD!....Oh...my.....GOD!....Oh...my.....GOD!....Oh...my.....GOD!....Oh...my.....GOD!....Oh...my.....GOD!.... Oh...my.....GOD!.... Ish...... ISH!!!!!! THIS IS THE.....GOD!!!! The....the.... I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!"

    Hold on.

    ::Grabs tissue and blows nose.::

    Okay, I'm going to calm down and say my piece now.

    Thank you the voters for your faith in me.

    To Gandolf for running this circus!

    To my readers for your patience with me.

    To my betas for your continued good humor.

    To my co-authors on SOTTOT for their genius, without which I could never have written that.

    To Mely who keeps me focused.

    To Am who keeps me laughing.

    To Lothi and J-J who are always there to listen so I can end each day on a high note.

    To Ti. Yes, she's a fictional character, but she is so worth mentioning in any circle. Shameless plug for ATWP, I know. My apologies.

    To my computer for staying on.

    To my parents for paying for the computer.

    To God for giving me the hands, the brains, and the strange sense of humor that has brought me here tonight.

    THANK YOU ONE AND ALL!!!!!!!!!!

    *applauds, whistles, anything else she can think of*

    Yea! Good speech!!!

    *realizes the awards are over, and notices everyone standing up to leave*

    Hmm.

    *spies Darth Vader, who was dragged in by DarthIshtar earlier, and smiles*

    Hey, Master!

    *Vader glances over*

    Want to go get a soda to celebrate? Maybe help me write a post for one of my many stories? My treat.

    *Vader shrugs. The two walk off, laughing and talking*

    *Fruity pauses; turns back*

    Hey, everyone!

    May The Force Be With You, Always.

    Storm Skywalker Ranch with a copy of ATWP, hold GL hostage until he converts it into Episode 3, then go and write ROL. But I won't leave Skywalker Ranch until GL sees ROL and publishes it, under Mely's name.

    Just kidding.

    I personally, am going to do homework, then get something sickeningly sweet to eat, since I still haven't eaten dinner, and go to bed.

    Congratulations to all the winners and nominees. You all deserve a round of applause.

    Thanks to all who voted for my fic, Shackled Pastin the Romance Category.

    In their hotel suite, Luke leaned on the railing of the balcony, watching the sunrise. It still seemed odd to him that a planet could have only one sun. The red-gold orb crawled out of the pit of darkness, bringing forth warmth and light. He observed the shadows as they ran from the brightness. He breathed in the freshness of the morning air. A peko peko flew by, its leathery wings stretched taut. Luke could see a tag on its leg, identifying it as a domesticated pet. As it fluttered off in the distance, Luke's attention was drawn to a sound behind him. Twisting his head, he saw that it was Mara.

    She had just gotten out of the shower. Her hair was still up in a towel. "Good morning, Luke."

    He smiled at her. "Good Morning. Breakfast is on its way up. You're hungry, I?"

    "Can feel it. I know, I know." Mara laughed.

    The buzzer rang and the announcing chime sang out room service. Luke got up and said, "I'll get it."

    A few minutes later, they were both seated at the small dinette table, eating a tasty avian egg dish. Mara spoke first. "Luke, can we go home?"

    "Home?"

    Mara took a breath. "Yes. I've been here longer than I ever thought I would be. I know you needed to get the datadiscs and since Sio gave you the copies of everything they had cracked, I thought that maybe we could leave."

    Luke looked at her for a moment. He had been so involved in his research, he had neglected to think of Mara's feelings. He didn't want to make that kind of mistake again. "Sure. We can leave today."

    A smile spread on her radiant face. "Thank you."

    She got up from her place and came over to sit on Luke's lap. "I have one request."

    She wrapped her slender arms around his shoulders. He put his hands on her hips and then kissed her lips. "And what is that request?"

    "That I get to be the pilot." She grinned and began to nibble on his ear.

    He scrunched his head, trying to get her loose from his ear. "Mara, that tickles."

    She pulled back and looked into his deep blue eyes. She gave him a devious smile then moved her hands to her hips. "Tickles? I'll give you tickles."

    She immediately set her fingers to work tickling his ribs. He tried to get away but only succeeded in landing on the ground. Mara came down on top of him with a thud. "Oof. Mara, you okay?"

    Mara was on her hands and knees above him. The towel had fallen from her head and her gorgeous wet hair cascaded down the sides of her face, framing her beauty. Luke was so mesmerized that he didn't notice the cold drops that landed on his chest. He reached up to stroke her cheek when he noticed the glint in her eye. Her lips twisted and she said, "I'm okay, but you might not be."

    She leaned down and smothered his mouth with hers. Although fervently enjoying the kiss, he was beginning to get dizzy from lack of oxygen. However, he reluctantly let her pull away. Soon, he ran his quivering fingers into her hair and pulled her back down. She kissed him quickly on the lips then went for his ear again. Mara felt triumphant at being able to get the strong, compact Jedi Master to squirm. The buzzer rang again and she heard the announcing chime. Not willing to accept the interruption, she waved her hand at the door, locking it with the Force and setting the codes for "do not disturb". An astonished Luke gaped at her. Before he could make any comment, Mara ensured his silence by taking his unresisting lips into hers.

    Thank you to everyone who voted the What if the Empire sequel as the best action fic. I very much appreciate it. :)

    An even bigger thanks to my co-writer ami-padme for helping to make it so. The What if wouldn't have been what it was without her. Congrats on your double win, ami! :)

    It felt like forever since he'd first collapsed in a heap on the ground. But nevertheless, he knew that it had likely only been five minutes at the most. The nausea and dizziness hit him wave after wave, blurring his vision, and making him sick to the stomach whenever he tried to move. He expected to see one of the Vong soldiers spotting him and roughly picking him up to take them back to a shaper.

    Strangely, he hadn't heard their footsteps for a while now. It was like they'd disappeared, but Anakin knew better than that. The Yuuzhan Vong did not give up, they kept at it until they got what they wanted; and in this case they wanted Anakin or the galaxy--either one would look good on a silver platter.

    But now, Tahiri was on her way to save him. She was sometimes so predictable in her actions, and likewise with emotions. Over their bond, he could feel her pain at his injury and the sorrow at the thought of losing him. He himself thought of the wedding which maybe now would never happen. His vivid fantasies of that one day when she'd walk down the aisle in a pure white dress, were banished from his thoughts. It was useless to dwell on what was never to be, but what was to be.

    They'd be united through the Force after their deaths. What more could they ask for? They only had to but think of this as a vacation and not what it really was. He lay quietly, even now more than ever. His limbs were determined to insist that he not move, so he sat there in silence, listening to the sounds of an almost dead planet.

    He pressed harder into the wound, but the blood continue to flow out, staining his hand in the process. He sighed, filling his lungs with much needed air even as another wave of nausea hit him. He almost thought that he was imagi

    Marie pokes her head into the empty autitorium. Since no one's around, she decides to leave a note for anyone who stops by tomorrow:

    CONGRATULATIONS to all the winners.

    I wish I had time to read all the wonderful stories mentioned here.

    PS: Fluke, I'm gonna tell Becca on you for flirting with all of the Smooch girls! ;)
