    That sounds good. I was going to ask you if you did do the Palpsie's Mom's story if you were going to keep it canon. There is a description of his family in the book Darth Plageus (Probably spelled wrong, but too lazy to look up in Wookieepedia). It sounded like Palpatine was disturbed even as a child. His parents were wary of him.

    It was going to be AU. See, in the book, Palpsie killed both his parents and his brother. I was going to have it where she survived the "accident," but had no memory of what happened. Palpsie plays all solicitous as a good son... practice for playing the kind grandfatherly type for young Ani.

    I decided it would be better as a regular story instead of a diary.

    I am looking at doing a couple of diaries since I have a great deal of time on my hands for the next year.

    The primary one will be "Diary of a Spartan" and will follow a Spartan-II from selection until the Fall of Reach (Non-SW). It will be a first person from the POV of Jason-078, leader of White Team.

    The second will be a fun one following a Jedi during the Clone Wars. His name will be Mer-Fi. The diary will be "Mer-Fi's Law." It will follow a Gungan Jedi and will be written completely in Gungan-Basic!

    Would an entire diary in Gungan Basic be too much?

    :D Welcome to the boards Volund. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

    Two things:
    Non-SW fan fiction goes here http://boards.theforce.net/forums/non-star-wars-fan-fiction.10808/
    - A good place for "Diary of a Spartan";)

    Gungan Basic/Gunganese is basically English with a few changes. As long as it looks enough like english it should be fine.
    Example: "Mesa like to visit yousa city". = I would like to visit your city OK

    "Can wesa goen dalee?" = Can we go to it? Confusing

    Other than that, the bombad jedi Mer-Fi is good to go...

    Thank you. I've been around for a while. I took place in the 2011 diaries, but thanks to a storm, I wasn't able to continue. Thank you, though, for the link to where I can put my Spartan story. I have been planning it for a while and didn't know where to include it.

    I'll need to get back into the habit of writing, preferably before I resurrect my diary. Again, I'm just going to continue one of them. I'll drop in a "the story so far" type thing and cover the basics, and then just continue from there. That should work to cover all the backlogged stuff I never got around to. Nothing happened in them, anyway. Unless you all want to read how Zuckuss and two other inmates removed a nasty, smelly carpet from an old office that had been flooded at one point.

    My sister and I were debating on going out partying New Years eve, but in the end we decided not to. She figured she didn't have the money and I wanted to start on my diary right after midnight. I am such a nerd.

    I have sort of a plan for my entries until May. I just hope that they aren't too agnsty. I am writing a Ben diary that starts right after Invincible. I don't want to make it too dark, but the kid will be 14 and he just lost his mother and cousin and was in a war. The kid is going to have some mental issues. I decided against giving him full out PTSD, but he's not going to be the sarcastic 16 year old we see in FOTJ. It is going to be a challenge for me to do something so emotional from a male point of view.

    I'll be doing a Walter Mitty-esque diary of . . . er, someone whose life is astonishingly similar to my own in Non-SW Fanfic. I have a few practice entries posted and right now, the possibilities seem endless.
