    Looking for: Padawan (brave soul they must be!)

    Era:

    Saga/limited Beyond – see notes

    Favorite Characters:

    Movie Cannon, OC’s

    Strengths:

    Characters, romance, Giving your characters a ‘voice’, making you think…

    Weaknesses:

    The EU. I have my own.

    I love to write:

    A wide variety, all perspectives

    No way will I ever write: Mara-Mara-Mara – sorry, she is a non-entity in my worldview, as is Thrawn or any major EU character.

    Random Facts and Fun Information about me:

    I have been ‘infamous’ for pushing the boundaries, but I have never stepped over the line. Indeed, if you read the FAQ, yes, that is my work that is the ‘nookie litmus’ and has been for many years. I fought hard for the inclusion of ‘SSR’ (same sex relationships) of characters (policy follows Lucasfilm – nothing vulgar or overt, OC ONLY, and no Canon characters – IE, Luke doesn't fancy Han, Leia isn't falling over herself for Mon Mothera, and Obi-Qui-Anankin… you get the idea)

    Note that I will encourage you, red pen of death you (I learned from the best) give you suggestions, question you, poke and prod you, but I will not write your story for you –It’s YOUR STORY. YOU have the final say, unless it violates the TOS/guidelines. I will hold your hand, pat your head or kick your hiney – whatever works. J
