    Do you mean you haven't read that one by Austen where Mr Darcy gets knocked up by Wickham? Classic fiction does not deserve the name if it doesn't contain at least one MPreg! :D

    Don't you just love it when people write such nice, friendly summaries! :rolleyes:

    And I must apologise for my latest [face_worried] I have described it as a 'romangst' which is not a very cheery sub-genre. I did make sure that it had 'angst' as one of the categories though :)

    Just popping in to say: Ash, you belong here with us, but note your genre is not the popular one currently. The "in" genre is Luke/Mara romance - go to fanfic and the majority of the stories getting responses and accolades are those.

    It's nothing personal, it's not a sign that you don't belong with the Obi fans, it's not something you, or I, or anyone has any control over. When Obi-romance comes back into vogue, you'll be lauded as the one who hung in there and kept the flame alive.

    So keep your chin up and keep writing. Whine, moan, complain, ask for support, anything you want because I think this thread is full of wonderful people who do support each other through hard times (and I'm not saying you're doing that; I'm saying I think anyone of us could do so here if we were so inclined). Be honest and frank - heck, you and I had quite the conversation some time back that I think helped both of us understand the other better and deepened our appreciation for each other and each other's POV - but never, NEVER think you don't belong. Here, or anywhere.

    You do belong here with us - the crazy, slobbering Obi-fans.

    Hey, Random House at Comic Con in San Diego this year is givng FF writer a chance to record a five minute segment of their best stories (for fandoms are on the list...Star Wars is on that list)...

    Ruth or Val...either one of you could do this...I think you'd win!

    The winner will have their story orally recorded and streamlined on the internet...(if I read it correctly)...

    Of course, kitty-wan appears to have been packing away the vittles with great aplomb.

    I know... it's almost paradoxical - very much like Jedi wisdom.

    Finding pics of young Obi smiling is really difficult for some reason. I thought this was a good find

    About a week ago I tried to set this pic as my avatar, but it failed because it was too wide and not tall enough. blah.:p

    Put it sideways! Then he's just lying next to you...

    @laloga Charmingly mischievous is the epitome of the fun side of Obi and so fun to write. And read!
