    I loved getting Lizodessky's perspective in that she learned to like Jag. It's good to know he can grow on people ;)

    I want to thank her for the interview and let everyone know we have the next one lined up. I'm eagerly awaiting a new set of J/J-centric fanfiction after Inferno's release yesterday :D

    Our September update is very short -- just a couple reviews. Remember to submit J/J strories, art, and story reviews to the index!!


    Title: No One
    Author: Corellian_Cutie
    Summary: Jag's been stranded on Tenupe for two weeks and he's a bit delusional.
    Review: I read this vignette about a year ago, but it was just as delightful the second time around. Corellian_Cutie created a Jag very different from the books, but it was really nice to see his perspective after the battle of Tenupe. Jaina telling him that she was ?no one? was very cute, and a nice tie-in with a great song. This is a very nice piece, and I?ll miss seeing [b[Corellian_Cutie[/b] and her stories around the boards.

    Title: I?m Already There
    Author: J_M_Bulldog
    Summary: Five years after the Vong war, Jaina and Jag are separated while he?s out on deployment.
    Review: This was so sweet!! Jaina and Jag?s conversation was lovely mush, and their daughter is a cute little kid. Jag?s surprise was delightful, and I love that Kyp helped out ? that was my favorite part. This is the perfect mushy songfic.

Some of its members continued to fight. Others simply disappeared. And now, twenty five years later, something is happening. A strange man walks into a bar and asks smuggler Jaina Draygo and her partner Tenel Ka Djo to get him into the closed Corellian system, and to get him, and four other people, out. A healer in Coronet feels a strange connection to a woman who shares his last name. A mentally unstable moisture farmer from Tatooine prophesies the end of an era. The shattered galaxy is about to be made whole again, for better or for worse.

    Our interview this month is with Flowerlady. Without further ado, let's find out about one of fellow Indexed authors :)

    1. Tell us a little about yourself.


    I will be 38 in October and my real name is Sara. I?m married with two children?a son who is in 5th grade and a daughter who is in 2nd. I?m a former secondary social studies teacher and medical assistant who now works as a medical secretary at an Army health clinic. I?ve been there for almost 6 years. I live near the state capitol of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, in a small town not far from one of my favorite haunts, Gettysburg. I enjoy gardening and actually take my penname from my first love, well make that my second love, history is my first, particularly the American Civil War. My co-workers call me Flowerlady when they come to me for garden or flower advice. I have nearly two hundred different types of plants growing in a cottage or English garden on my quarter acre lot, which my husband scornfully calls Sara?s Jungle.


    2. How did Star Wars become part of your life. And to follow up on that, when did the Star Wars fanfic bug bite?

    I got interested in Star Wars as an adult after my hubby bought the OT videos in 1996, and I was hooked. I had seen bits and pieces of the movies before that but never the whole. When the PT came out I bought the videos/DVDs as they were released and would often sit and watch all of the movies that I had in one or two sittings. Then in ?05 when RotS came out I made it a point to see that one in the theater and it has actually become my favorite of the six movies, just as the novelization has become my favorite SW book.

    However, after watching the last movie, I realized that was it. Or so I thought. Then I discovered the wonderful world of the EU. I had the wonderful experience of reading the EU books in order, or mostly in order. I started with Cloak of Deception and read them all in order to the present LotF series since June of ?05. I will admit I skipped some of the paperbacks such as the Rogue Squadron books until recently, but I am now going back and reading the ones I?ve missed between LotF book releases. I also try to read any of the new books of the other eras as they come out.

    I?ve said that RotS is my favorite novel and movie, but I don?t really care for the Clone Wars. The NJO and LotF eras have become my favorite time periods, mainly because of Luke?s imperfect Jedi.

    Oh, as for the Fan Fiction bug? That bit early autumn ?05, when I started reading the NJO. I discovered the TFN Archive and read nearly every romance fic in there. Then I discovered the Beyond Board and was in heaven. I had all the romance I?d ever wanted.

    I began to write when the story Always Have, Always Will wouldn?t let me alone. I actually hand wrote the whole thing before I started posting it. I was a nervous wreck when I pushed that post button. I?ll never forget it. But after I got some encouraging reviews, I was hooked like a Twi?lek on spice.


    3. You're not just a J/J shipper. What are some of the other 'ships that interest you?

    No, I?m not just a J/J shipper. Actually, I?m rather new to J/J. I started out on the boards shipping Kyp with Jaina, and I still enjoy reading fics with them as a romantic entity. However, I know that in canon that will never happen. I began shipping J/J after Legacy comics came out. I?ve written several LotF speculation fics and came to the realization that my main speculation was that Jag and Jaina end up in the Empire and begin the Fel Dynasty. Startled myself with that one, I did. So, I took a deep breath, kissed Kyp good-bye and started shipping Jaina with Jag.

    As for my other ships?I?m one of the main Ben/Jysella (Benella) shippers and was the one who suggested that there be an index/discussion thread dedicated to them and am the main staffer of that thread. I love the idea of Ben hooking up with Jys. I?m a Corran Horn fan, and have come to love his kids. So, I?ve fallen in l

    Great interview Sara, [:D]

    I can't say I'm surprised that you're a Civil War buff. Living that close to Gettysburg, I guess its hard not to be.

    I'm glad you (and rebel_cheese) took credit here for developing Alex Winger. I've been accused of Mary-Sue-ing several times, just cause she has the same name and hair color as me...gosh! I just don't get it :confused:

    You have a great J/J going in The Path of Dreams that I hope continues for a long time. You really have a wonderful grasp of their personalities as individuals and as a couple. [face_love]

    And, hopefully, now that you've found Kyp a good partner, you can continue to provide us with wonderful J/J mush that we are all in desperate need of [face_praying]

    Excellent interview :D !!! Flowerlady, you are indeed a master at writing J/J.

    This is just a side note but I think I'm too mean to Jag sometimes in my stories. I put him through such hardships :p . At least others have him in happy scenarios.

    NOVEMBER UPDATE


    We have a fabulous interview this month from oldjedinurse and a challenge idea in the works. Remember to submit all your J/J stories and artwork, as well as interview suggestions and any reviews you want to do!


    Title: The Shattered Galaxy
    Author: HyperionRising
    Start Date: September 9, 2007
    Summary: After the Bakuran conflict, history has taken a different turn. The New Republic never came to be?nothing, and no one, are as they seem.
    Review: I was immediately captured by the original concept of this very entertaining story. Galactic history has been turned on its ear, yet there are constant echoes of familiar canon events. HyperionRising has done a terrific job of writing our favorite characters living different lives. Strangers and friends have changed, but some attractions are unavoidable. ;) The Shattered Galaxy grabbed my attention from the very first post. It has mystery, drama, and humor. I highly recommend it.

    [face_pumpkin] FALL CHALLENGE[face_pumpkin]

    Leaves are changing and spoilers float down from the treetops...

    In light of the recent excitement surrounding J/J in the LotF series, the index managers thought it would be nice to harness some of the enthusiasm in the air with a challenge.

    Entry parameters

    So here's what we're going to do. Write a missing scene from Inferno with Jaina and Jag as the only two characters.

    1. Entry must be posted in the challenge thread.

    2. Entry can be no longer than 2500 words.

    3. Entry must have the index required block of information (Title, Author, Genre, etc.) at the top.

    4. Entries will be judged on originality in use of what happened in Inferno[/i], adherence to canon, spelling/grammar/adherence to the challenge rules, mush factor (the ability to turn up the heat) and overall impression.

    5. Must include the following words: mug, bracelet, nail, holo, rare, burp.


    There are no other restrictions. The challenge closes on Dec 12th at 12:00PM board time.

    Questions can be PMed to T'Keira or posted in the challenge thread. As always I am looking for a few brave folks to judge.

    ~T'Keira

    Edit: deadline to Dec 12th. You guys really didn't want to turn them in today :p

    - Thanks BigFatty for the catch

    Don't forget that today is Fury's release. Spoilers in regards to J/J can be discussed in the Conference Room thread. Is there any interest in opening the challenge to include the new book?

    Don't forget the Fall Challenge, folks!

    We've been slow on entries. If interest is this low we may have to reconsider doing challenges or how often we do them. Any feedback that would help us, would be greatly appreciated.

    Also just in case there is a last minute rush, I need volunteers to judge. Please send me a PM if you're interested.
