    I'd like to say I gave her ideas....but I can't. For the record, I did shut up for a few hours so she could write. :)

    Thanks, everyone :). The award is for "Their Only Chance", which I posted on the TA boards a few months ago. It was my first SW fanfiction - before that, I'd only written Harry Potter fic.

    All my fics are linked on my profile here. Most are what they call one-shots - short stories of one chap each. Two of them marked as WIP are works in progress, and both are already novel length. Speaking of, I REALLY need to update those... yeesh. Been a while!

    It's a guilty feeling, isn't it? Each time I update, I promise myself that it'll just be a two week wait for the next chapter, then things come up.... How long has it been for you since your last update?

    I was never able to get too much into SW fanfic, I read a few here and there, but I am absolutely addicted to HP fanfic. You should post some of that. =D

    Almost all of my HP fanfic is at fanfiction.net, under penname Wendynat ;). A lot of them are answers to "challenges"... I liked to flex my plotting muscles by taking on challenges from online groups (someone comes up with a totally improbable scenario and you have to make it work).

    Never thought I'd get into other fanfiction, but then RotS came out and I HAD to fill in the "why did Padme let herself die" question for myself, and that was it for me ;). I was hooked!
