    Hi there,

    I'm Spark Vallen (my online name, sillies). I'm from Metro Detroit. Just signed up as a beta-reader for theforce.net fanfic and thought I'd drop in here and say hello. So, "Hello!"

    Cool. :)

    So what kind of fanfic do you like? I'm an old school girl myself... Classic films or EU. But prequel stuff is so EVERYWHERE that I'm afraid even EU counts as old school. Sigh.

    Expanded Universe, essentially anything outside of the movies.

    I'd go, but I'll be in Milwaukee. Gencon, baybee!

    Fast Fact: Chiang is a graduate of Detroit's Center for Creative Studies. I bet he's still paying off loans. That place is mega-expensive.

    Just another Metro Area fan stopping by to say hi!
    And you can bet I will be going to Toledo in August!
    Where else can a girl get her picture made with Chewbacca?! :D

    Yeah! Glad to hear you're attending! Its gonna be great...
    Doug Chiang lived in Dearborn for a bit, too. 1968-1972. The local connection is very important.
    See you all there!

    Btw, Spark, are you a fan of John Varley's Sparky Valentine?

    :) Same Spark Vallen here. Forgot I had an account, then forgot what my credentials were! YIKES.

    Anyway, to reply to the notes left from before:

    --Got to go to the SW exhibit in Chicago then in Toledo as well. Liked it much better in Toledo because it didn't feel so crammed in!

    --Never heard of the Sparky you mentioned! Sorry. My name derivates from an old SW story I wrote in '95. The character was named Spark Vallen. hehe.

    --Fanfic : generally, I enjoy any sort of fanfic. The type I've written mostly relates to people who post on various message boards. I'll post a sign up and they submit a character. Then I do the work to blend the personalities into a story. :) www.forceacademy.com/fanfic
