Good Morning! Thought I'd answer these two before heading off to my son's speech therapy appointment. Can't say I have a favorite culture, but I do like the Wookie culture because of their honor and loyalty. I don't typically use elements of my characters culture in my stories, so I can't really pick a favorite. I suppose if I chose to, it would be outside of the Star Wars universe with the Vulcans in Star Trek. The emotional control, the touch-telepathy and the physical superior strength--that would be fun to write about. I do like non Star Wars fandoms. When I first began reading fanfic as a teen, it was stories based around my favorite soap opera, General Hospital. I also love Star Trek and Harry Potter fandoms. I wrote a Harry Potter vignette years ago and I have a few unfinished Star Trek stories sitting on my computer. I am currently writing some General Hospital stories. It's still my favorite soap. @Nyota's Heart You'll love the pie. There are lots of recipes on the web. I'll see if I can track my written one down and send it to you. I typically just guess-timate on measurements and things since I've made it so often.
