    Hello everyone. Just as a disclaimer, I am not sure if this is the right forum for this post. If it's not, would a Moderator kindly move it to the appropriate place. I would greatly appreciate it, one way or another.

    I'm wondering if anyone, from the old days, before 2011 may have saved my fics somewhere? As some you might might know, the First Great Move left many old posts truncated. There had been promises to restore them. I'd hoped that with the newest modifications and upgrades -- this next Move that recently occurred -- that this would be rectified but, unfortunately, they were not. They also do not exist on the Wayback Machine from what I have been able to determine on my own. I didn't have the foresight to save my fics then: a fact that I regret to this very day. I've since learned from my own mistakes, but I still lost all of those old fics.

    So here is what I am looking for, fellow Council members who may remember.

    - The Battle For Ascendance (I probably wouldn't continue this anyway as I am not sure I want continue what is now Legends, but I really liked my writing there)

    - The Tragedy of Darth Plagueis the Wise

    - I've Had It

    - A Certain Point of View (where I had been writing the Old Trilogy from the perspectives of Obi-Wan and Yoda, now Legends)

    - What Do You Get When

    - A Broken Shadow Reborn

    - Inheritance Claimed

    - You Are the Person I Wanted To Be

    - Watching From the Darkness, Remembering the Light

    I wish I could find all of them. I was darth_treyvah then too. But if anyone has saved them and is willing to share them, I would greatly appreciate it. And I will definitely save them in more than one place. Thank you, and may the Force be with you. Always.

    @darth_treyvah I've moved your post into the 'looking for fics' thread, as it is probably the best place to find if someone has copies (or can find them on the Wayback Machine).

    I'm incredibly fascinated by the post-Episode I, pre-Episode II lead up from 1999-2002. I've found a lot of awesome Episode II speculation stories (Decline of the Republic, Path of Shadows, Sovereign of the Shadows, Arm of Vader, etc.)

    Was there ever section either here or on other fanfic sites that was dedicated to Episode II speculation fanfics?

    It wasn't a section devoted to it, it was just in the "Before the Saga" page. Way back in the mists of time (which is when I was a mod around here), "Before the Saga" actually meant the Prequel era, anything from KotR up to ANH. The Saga was ANH to ESB. And Beyond the Saga was anything after ESB, so all the NJO stuff, the Solo twins, Vong War, etc. fell into that. If you go to the Classics board, where all the three boards were converged into one, you'll find a lot of stuff there, though you'll have to sort by reverse order. Also, a board move meant that a lot of stories were truncated, where the posts cut off after so many words. But if you find one you like, you can check some of the other big fanfiction sites, like FF.N or AO3 by title, because a lot of authors cross-posted, and you might find them there as well in their entirety.

    *pokes head out of Lurkdom*

    So... Rebels has recently dragged my inner-Thrawn out from hiding and I've been scouring my bookmarks for all the Thrawn stories out there. Anyway... one of them is Dark Mirror by Gandalf the Grey here on JFC, however its truncated by the first move. Does anyone by chance have a full copy of it somewhere? Has it been reposted by Gandalf perchance? I really really would like to re-read this story. It was one of my favorite NJO tales.

    @CmdrMitthrawnuruodo I've been looking for that one too, and apparently it isn't posted anywhere else :( I only found a partial backup on the Wayback Machine: starting here there are ten consecutive pages that cover posts 1-151 and here three consecutive pages that cover posts 1201-1275. So basically there's a backup of the beginning and the end of the story, but the middle is missing.

    :( It was such an awesome story. I remember hurrying home from work when it got really intense to see if Gandalf posted a new part.

    Oh dear. That sounds like something I would ADORE to read. =P~

    Does anyone know of a story about Jaina being pregnant and Jag's missing and Kyp and her get closer. [face_thinking] I like Jaina with either Jag or Kyp ;) and this I think had a strong family feels because Kyp helped her out with her younglings. :D

    I'm looking for a story I read years ago, where Anakin lives past ROTJ, and I think Luke and him started a Jedi academy on Naboo.
    I don't remember a whole lot, I think I read it on ff.net, and tried searching for it but haven't found it.
    I don't remember the name of the fic.
    I would very much appreciate if anyone who knows what story I'm talking about, can pm me the name or link.

    Hi, and welcome! One very fine Anakin and Padmé story that comes to mind is @Ewok Poet ’s “Drops of Mustafar,” which looks at their love and tragedy’s through the eyes of a far-future narrator (though it may be helpful if you see Episode 3 before reading that one). @Mira_Jade ’s “An Old Song Re-Sung” centers fairly strongly around Anakin and Padmé; it’s an alternatie-universe take in which Anakin does not fall to the dark side. Hope this helps to start, and happy reading! :)

    I am looking for a Star Wars short story that I once read. In this story the main protagonist is a force wielder that is confronted by a Sith. This force wielder is not a Jedi nor a Sith. But he follows a path called the Now. During the confrontation he tells the Sith that he is more powerful than any Sith or Jedi. He educates the Sith how the Jedi look back to the past for their power (knowledge past down and expanded over the millennium) and the SIth look to the future ( how one day they will rule, win, defeat the Jedi, whatever its personal goal is) for their power. But both fail to look at the present which he calls the Now. In the end the Sith does defeat him. However, it is the protagonist that defeats himself because during the battle he glimpse in the future to counter the Sith and thus loses the focus on the Now. His last words are something of another about how he is not a master of the Now that he thought he was.

    I do not recall where I read this story. However, I thought I read it somewhere here on the Jedi Council Forums. But I could be wrong.

    Thanks for all your help!
