    April 2011 Recommended Reading List


    Hello and welcome to this month's Recommended Reading List! We've got a wide range of selections for you to peruse this month, so there should be something in here for everybody. Every story on here is worth a read, though.


    Jedi Trace recommends:[link=] The Vader Monologues[/link] by [link=]BlindMan.[/link]

    This an old humor fic that was something of a cult classic back in the day. It is a series of scenes from the original trilogy written as internal monologue between Darth Vader and Anakin Skywalker and I think it?s one of the funniest things I?ve ever read. My RL BFF and I read it way back when and still quote lines from it almost ten years later.

    Commander-DWH recommends: [link=]Blank Slate Waits[/link] by [link=]oqidaun[/link]

    One of the many, many stories relating to oqidaun's sprawling saga of the Dakari sector, and one of the few to land in Before, this is a very serious and spooky response to an intensely silly challenge. It features Obi-Wan and an original Jedi character simply called 'Blank Slate' by those around him, and is a truly wonderful look at someone who was utterly destroyed by war, though he kept on living.

    mavjade recommends: [link=]Under the Little Dome[/link] by [link=]Trepidation[/link]

    Sometimes I'm not in the mood to read something long but I still want the range of emotions that a longer story can give you. Under the Little Dome is an adorable one-shot with Luke, Mara, Ben and Artoo that gives quite a few laughs and most importantly leaves you with a wonderful, heart-warming feeling. When I need a pick me up story that makes me smile and feel good, this is one of the stories I go to.

    Luna_Nightshade recommends:[link=]The Cell[/link] by [link=]obaona[/link]

    Back in the day, long before I knew there were boards with actual stories and writers to help feed my Star Wars addiction, I spent a lot of time on the Fanfic Archives. I found this amazing author there, and one thing led to another until I found these boards. (There was a busy reading day!) I blame this story for ultimately inspiring me to write my own stories here. Brief summary: Obi-Wan and Padme are locked in a cell by Anakin/Vader, and left there. This story has amazing descriptions, great characterizations, and a gut-punch of a story line. It is the kind of story you want to share with others after you finish it, so I'll share it here.

    Mira_Jade recommends: [link=]Austen Adventure[/link] by [link=]Idrelle_Miocovani[/link]

    For Doctor Who, going anywhere and meeting anyone is possible. With this story, Idri takes that time honored tradition and runs with it in a most spectacular fashion. When the Eleventh Doctor, Amy, and Rory, travel to Regency era England, they meet none other than Jane Austen - who happens to be suffering from a rather alarming case of writer's block, and a rather tricky problem with a not so local race of aliens. This story is brilliant for its ability to weave together history and science fiction - Jane's voice is fabulous, and her character is richly developed throughout the story. At the s

    Well, of course you'd be excited, Mar. I did write it specifically for you, after all. :p

    (But I am honoured, Mira, that you would mention it! :* )
