    Can you ask for non-SW fics in this thread?

    While we allow challenges and such to expand to NSWFF that can be posted here on the boards, recs or looking for fics in this thread should stick to Star Wars. It gets way too complicated and hard for us to know what is being linked to when we open it up to any fandom. Most fandoms have their own places for asking about stories in those fandoms. If you are looking for a story that might be posted over in NSWFF, you might want to ask over there.

    Also a fanfic occurs roughly around TUF called Whsipers of the Force or something like that has a happy ending to the whole post NJO era.

    In order to find some sources of inspiration, I'm looking for fics mainly located in Coruscant.

    A goodly chunk of Chyntuck 's Ἀνάγκη – Necessity beyond sway takes place on Coruscant, and she could probably tell you the exact chapters/scenes. Also her story Datacracy, which is about Coruscant's bureaucratic scene in particular.

    For stories set in commercial establishments on Coruscant, there's Raissa Baiard 's Blue Milk Run, part of which is set at Galaxy Mart, a big-box superstore on Coruscant. Also my own Sai-perimetry at Gleebaloola's, You Bet!, which features an insurance office and an antique shop that are next to each other in the CoCoTown commercial district.

    Hope this helps—good luck! :D

    Seconding @Findswoman's recommendations. :)

    Coruscant Lights by cthugha is another story that delves into the Coruscant setting. It's incomplete but really interesting. (Also, I think I forgot to review it. Oops. [face_blush])

    "Triple Zero"—a nickname for Coruscant owing to the fact that it's in the center of the Galaxy, with coordinates (0, 0, 0).

    This is a good nickname. Will use it for sure :)
    Gamiel I'm interested in places with a lot of activity by night, with store marquees.

    I can not name any fics or places but the Shadow of the Empire novel had some scenes in the lower levels of TZ, relatively near Imperial city to my understanding, and they did enter a store.

    If you are interested so can I mention some non-SW movies, comics and games with environments that I think could interest you.

    Yes. Since Coruscant is the main place of my fiction, any material, fics or comics, books or games could be useful.

    Thank you! What was the base template for URLs you were using, again? I know you shared it at some point, but I can't find it.

    Lazy posted an explanation here, but it doesn't cover all the possible options. Mr Chyn ended up pumping all the fanfic urls that are saved on the Wayback Machine, and I now look things up on a spreadsheet with the thread number.

    Hey all,

    Just wondering if any of you lovely people can help me find a fic. It was set after Qui-Gon dies. Instead of the Jedi Council eventually allowing Obi-Wan to train Anakin, they disallow it, resulting in Obi-Wan leaving the Order to train Anakin. I believe the fic is set on Naboo, and Obi-Wan works first as a poorly paid labourer helping to rebuild Naboo while Anakin is in school, and then, when the workers strike, he works as a negotiator. He was still training Anakin as a Jedi whenever he had a spare moment. Other random memories of the fic were that Anakin had a case worker. Anyone have any idea what this fic is? My google-fu skills have failed me.

    Has anyone ever seen any fics about Padme surviving ROTS and going on to work for the Rebellion or becoming a Jedi? There is one in particular that I vaguely remember had her working as a smuggler. But I'm drawing a blank in this category. Most of the "Padme lives!" stories came out after ROTS and seem to have disappeared.
