Whooooooo! I knew you could do it!
I totally forgot about this challenge! Plus, I can't find the PM that was sent to me with the quote I was supposed to use.
If she hasn't already, I'll send Goldie a PM and ask her to send you your quote again. I know DRL has been amazingly busy for her recently.
Would LOVE to see your response to this challenge!!!!!
Is there a new challenge in the works?
I'd love to see Alexis' reply too! Yeah, I did re-send the dare, but forgot to post here...
Brodiew, we've been tossing around a few ideas for a new challenge, but nothing has been decided yet... Any brilliant ideas are welcome!
Done at last. (Alexis? Wanna see it when you're done.)
Dreams of All
In response to: #8 ?The dream of the child is the hope of the man.? (A Winter?s Tale, Mercury, Made in Heaven, 1995)
Maybe you could help me. You seem friendly enough.
I just joined the boards yesterday and I don't know how to do anything!
Could anyone tell me how to put stuff in my bio or write a fic or link things? I'm not exactly a computer genius over here.
Oh well, guess I'm on my own here...
If you take a peek here or here all your questions will be answered... If not, just drop me a PM (Private Message) . Enjoy the boardas!
Thanks sooooooo much, Golden_Jedi!
I totally needed the help!
I feel like I've all but abandoned you, Goldie... sorry! Life, as you all know, is crazy this time of year... I'll try to be around more often, but I can't make any promises...
The responses for the last challenge have been superb. It always amazes me how the writers in this forum rise to the challenges. Bravo to you all!
Hi, JM... Don't worry... I'm a bit, hm, absent from the boards myself lately...
Seriously, I'm ready for a new challenge. You guys have done such a great job taking over. I just don't want it to languish.
New Stories and Index updated!
I thought I'd pop in a link for an awsome video e-card:
Star Wars Love Story
It might just be a little video e-card, but it brings back some nice, little memories of our favourite couple.
Awwwwwwwww... That was so sweet! Thanks Aiel!
That was awesome, I agree with Goldie! So sweet....
Where is everybody?
It's kind of lonely in here...
Hi QueenArdnassak yeah this place can get become kinda dead here and there.
Maybe people's muses have taken a hike.
I know my current H&L with a little OC thrown is stalled to do my beta. She's really busy which bites cause I know I have time to hang around. I think my muse is about to pack up leave again.
Anyhow nice meeting you. Ja.
Oh one last thing anyone got any ideas for challenge, if not can anyone come up with one and submit?
We're not dead, we're not dead...! Just a bit overwhelmed by DRL...
First of all, feel free to PM any suggestions for challenges to the sock.
And since I'm all ready here, what about a nice issue for debate?
****New Topic Following****
In more fanfics than I can count, we read about Leia physically abusing Han (no, I'm not meaning THAT way , it's TOS violating!!) , slapping him, kicking him in specially painful places, etc. And Han deserved it in most of the cases too.
Yet, she never did anything of the kind in the movies. Tongue lashing? Yes, a lot. But the only physical act of revenge we see coming from Leia after heavy picking from han is... kissing Luke.
Why do you think outhors insist with the classical slapping scene? Do we think that it was something that probably happened but George didn't show us because it was not politically correct/family friendly/whatever, in the same way we think OTHER physical stuff happened that George didn't show us? Or Leia is just the no-slapping kind and portraiting her as one is wrong?
I can understand a playful poke in the side (from either party) but real physical abuse? No.
What comes to mind is the 'classic portrayal' of a strong woman needs to assert her dominance physically - ie the 'classic' slap that ends in a lot of sexies in film nior, but Leia always 'struck' me (no pun intended) as being 'above' that. She's not weepy, or wimpy, but nor is she domineering or cruel. She reminds me a lot of Kate Hepburn (or at least, my perception of her) from the African Queen. She strong, beautiful, and can hold her own. She didn't stoop to the level of 'B***-Cow', and never will.
In a fic that wrote a long time that neer got off the ground. Leia does slap Han.
But after my beta told it was bit much for her slap him.
And I re read it I realized it was bit much.
She might playfully slap him on the cheek or elbow him in the ribs but thats it.
What about when she becomes a a jedi she could left him in the air and leave him there up side do tell he decides to be nice.
I think she would do that Leia writing Leia and Han& Leia in the EU is hard.
Oh and I finely got why Han never had too worry about the kids throwing hm in a wall. There always training with Luke in Mara. duh. Some parts of EU I just don't like or care for.
If there was going to be any slapping going between Han and Leia, it would only be the "slap and tickle" variety.
I like to think that Leia would slap Han (in the OT at least) if he got waaaaaaaayyyyy too... fresh. Or too close for comfort, because there are way too many girls who let guys take advantage of them in movies like that.
But that's just my opinion.
Nice to meet you too AJ.
I agree with QueenArdnassak. In the OT, ANH timeframe especially, I could see her slapping him for inappropriate touching or suggestions.
I don't see Leia as the sort that would slap Han. I even wrote a little viggie that touched on this very subject.
