The idea for this thread came from a bit in a recent Mad Magazine that had authors like Tom Clancy and Danielle Steele doing novelizations of boring TV shows. I wondered how certain SW scenes and situations would be written by famous authors. Here are a few that come to mind. Clancy at the battle of Endor: Wicket picked up a 1.45 meter spear. He chose the franziwood spear over the ones made of garic and figii, favoring strength over accuracy. The franzi spear with its 45 mm shaft, .85 kilo mygar stone head and 3.8 cm long corme-feather fletching had served him well in the past. Frugal Gourmet doing the restaurant scene from I Jedi: Our gracious hostess, a lovely Twi'lek, tried to dissuade me from ordering the groint stew. Craig tried the Mynoc Flambe, but I've always considered flambeing a mynoc a waste of good Corellian whiskey) How about Daphne du Maurier writing about Mara as HttE opens: Last night I dreamed of Coruscant again. It seemed to me I stood by the Emperor's throne Or Margaret Wise Brown doing "Good Night Wompa" Perhaps a video clip of Mr Rogers visiting Death Star II, interviewing an Imperial guard: What an important job you must have, guarding the Emperor. I'll bet you're proud at the end of the day. Do all the guards dress like this in bright red? Red is a favorite color of mine. My, you sure are fancy on the outside. ================================================== You get the picture. Have fun!
