    Of course, because my computer is really weird and won't let me see images from the image tag, I can't see the button, but I'm sure it looks nice.

    I think my favorite Anakin/Padmé stories are those written by Darth_Lex. Of course, I think those are the only ones I've read, so any recommendations would be awesome :)

    Oh no, we couldn't do that. I mean more the execution of plot and the fact that there is one. People can think of a wonderful plot, but then the way they write it can make you reel.

    The problem with that is basically what you said. In my opinion, as long as you prove the way you're characterizing the character, there is nothing wrong with it. Then again, if it's a ROTS fic and then Anakin suddenly for no reason decides to go pick flowers on Dagobah, you'd need a reason for that, or be considered totally OOC.

    Exactly. I think that if we include limitations along those lines, we would be good :)

    Kiss from Genosis. Nice pic of the kiss...

    I read Lex's and while they were okay, I wasn't overly in love with them or anything. Yes, they're good. I just...don't know, basically it's taken me 4 months to get even to the ROTJ equivalent and usually when I'm into a fic, I can read a long series like that in a week. And with his, it didn't happen.

    Still thinking...hard to say. Let me name two authors who have showed up here, Kim and Gina, who both write brilliantly. And...yeah, I know I like so many, but I can't think of any names or authors...*groan*...

    Exactly. I think that if we include limitations along those lines, we would be good

    Yes. Definitely.

    I've read parts of them here and there, too. Haven't finished though. It's one of those stories you save and remember you have to read when you feel like the whole world of fan fic has gone to hell.

    Heh...and yeah. I haven't finished either...don't exactly remember where I am anymore... I think somewhere in the twenties. But yes, when everything has gone to hell, it's something to read...

    I can't really read long, long epic type stories. I don't know if I've read Lex's. geo3 writes a good Padme/Anakin, check out her Ring of Fire. Also anything by Gina, or MissPadme. In fact, MissPadme has a whole thread of vignettes. AnakinsHeir does some really nice ones. I write a few here and there, but have mostly been taken up with Mr. Skywalker here lately. I need to remedy that.

    Coooool.

    I don't have a favorite as of yet since I'm just getting my feet wet in the A(V)/P...maybe I should rearrange that so it doesn't look like Alien vs. Predator...hmm...

    Anyhoo, I LOVE the romance and angst and all that good stuff and have enjoyed so far turning it and twisting it into my own little piece (or two as it may be)!

    That's Alderaan21's site. She used to be known around here as Lady Aeryn, I believe. She co-wrote by The Grace of Lady Vader and Ascension of the Queen with Jedi Galadriel and ami-padme. Great site!!

    Oh, speaking of good V/P fic *points* The Grace of Lady Vader and Ascension of the Queen ... That's some good fic ...

    Nope, I've always just been A21 here. ;) Thanks for the TMOI plug! (Oh, and it was just 'Grace' I co-authored... 'Ascension' was Gala and a-p.)
    I've peeked in this thread before but it always looked pretty dead - but if there's A/P discussion going on, you can bet I'll be a part of it. :D

    Drawing a blank on any recs right now; I'll have to do some digging.

    Oh, and if people keep mentioning Photoshop, I'm going to be tempted to whip stuff up there as well - and I already spend too much time there. :p

    Hi, A21 :D

    I've updated the sock's introduction post to announce our new help and the acceptance guidelines added a link to TMOI, too ;)

    I'm inspired to do some Anakin/Padmé and Anakin/Vader buttons now. Darn it! I told you guys to drag me awaaaaay from Photoshop.

    Buttons, buttons, buttons *bounces* buttons, buttons ...

    I've peeked in this thread before but it always looked pretty dead - but if there's A/P discussion going on, you can bet I'll be a part of it.

    Hmmm, maybe we should borrow some of them lurker buttons, too :p

    Let's see, I definitely second geo and Miss Padme. Great authors, both of them.

    I write a few here and there, but have mostly been taken up with Mr. Skywalker here lately. I need to remedy that.

    *nods* Yes you do. Thinking about it, I could also try my hand at writing something shorter...

    A/P Defenders Thread in Community

    Seriously? It's there? But I've already looked there, several times at least. *sigh* Maybe I should have gone past the first couple of pages...

    Another good site is Moons of Iego and Anakin Skywalker Homepage (<--this site rocks)


    Second both of those as well. Anakin Homepage I'm just familiar with the fan fic section, but I think I'll have to take another look around... and Moons of Iego is great all around.

    And welcome, nobody's_angel! I'm sure you'll find lots of interesting fics to read here.

    I'm inspired to do some Anakin/Padmé and Anakin/Vader buttons now. Darn it! I told you guys to drag me awaaaaay from Photoshop.


    Sorry, roo...But great for the buttons! Keep them coming!


    And hi, A21


    Plus an update! We're making this thing work!

    Does a Padme/Vader 10-years-post-ROTS count? Also, for Ani/Ami, I have All the Wrong Places. And I wrote Lest Ye Be Judged as them surviving past Endor and reuniting.

    Oooh, I remember those. Anything with Anakin/Vader and Padme counts. Lest Ye Be Judged is in Beyond, right?

    I think it's in Beyond. I've started it, but at the moment I've been too busy to keep on reading.

    This thread excites me. :D :D...

    No, really. ;)

    I guess you can count on me being here periodically as well. Can't really make a decent post right now... but I'll be back later... Okay? Okay. I know, I know-- it's really going to alter the significance of this thread now that I'm here. *rolls eyes* :) haha.

    Anyway... discussion... hmm-- favorite fics? *heavy sigh* That'll be a while before I can get all that together in my mind. Off the top of my head, I know I've always been a fan of DarthBreezy's work... as well as MissPadme...all those quote "veteran" authors-- and MAN there are so many other great writers out there...that I'll come up with later on... Alethia does quite an excellent job, as well. :) But she already knows that.

    So... hopefully this will continue to thrive. :) I'm excited. :)

    Ohhh, People! :D

    Lest Ye Be Judged is in Beyond, right?

    You know, VLR64 has kindly agreed to keep an eye out in Beyond for A/P stuff :D So I'm really excited about that. (something with the orange keeps me out of that forum 8-} )

    I know, I know-- it's really going to alter the significance of this thread now that I'm here.

    But it does! Loved your little A/P novella, btw.

    And yes, the thread lives! 'lightning and omnious laughter ensue*

    Hi everybody! I was surfing around looking for halfway intelligent conversation when I saw that this thread was bumped up. Yay!

    There are a couple of promising new A/P fan fic authors I've seen on LiveJournal, one named Edie and the other named juanitadark. They post on the padmeanakin community. Edie in particular is really good. She does mostly vignettes.

    I just did some a fluffy closure viggie where Anakin and Padmé meet again as blue ghosties, which is in the Love Shack of A/P Vignettes thread (see my profile to find it...it might also be in the databank).

    Okay, forgive a Padawan's question, but do we include a link to our own A/P fics or do we let others do that for us?

    I'm loving all this A/P goodness!!! Bring it on!! I want more!
