    Just wanted to say that I have been a fan of Star Wars since, well, I was born. Can't remember the first time watching it but do remember all the toys I had growing up. My favorite character is Mara Jade (as you can tell with my Avatar) and my favorite book is Young Jedi Knights: Heir to the Force.

    Can't wait to get involved with this site!

    Hello UrbanWriter13. :) Due to your affinity for the EU, I would suggest checking out these forums:
    - 'Literature' and
    - 'EU Community'

    Also, if you're a writer like your name suggests, head on over to the 'Fan Fiction' tab and click it. :D You'll find a lot of stories to explore, and you can also post your own tales.

    Enjoy the ride!

    Thanks! I'll check it all out! I have a short story coming out next week on Kindle Worlds, is there anywhere on here that I can promote that?

    Out of curiosity, did they destroy the forums on the Star Wars website? or did they move here?

Hope to have you stay around. Get to know the forums, get active, and have a brilliant go.

    Welcome UrbanWriter13! :)

    I just can second the suggested boards by Destiny. They seem to fit to you best, but don't hesitate to take a look around. Meeting other SW fans from your area is cool as well for example (you can find them under 'FanForce').

    Enjoy your stay! :)

    Hello, and welcome aboard. There is so much to see and do over here. It's never dull. Everybody is friendly and helpful, and we have the best staff of administrators and moderators on the Internet, in my opinion. Enjoy your stay, and have lots of fun.
