    Welcome to the DownTime Pilot Index!


    News and announcements:

    12/6 Discussion Topic #9: Theme Music
    2/2 February/March Featured Fics posted
    2/21 Challenge #3: Rookies



    After a nearly four-year hiatus, the [link=]pilot index[/link] started by Jesina_Dreis and Myri_Antilles has returned. Lane_Winree and Mirax_Corran have been handed the entry codes and are now managing the bar (though we have to be honest, Lane is a pretty pathetic bouncer).

    What is the DownTime Pilot Index? In brief, we're a community of fanfiction writers and readers who love the starfighter jockeys of the GFFA. Whether they be Reds, Golds, 181sts, Rogues, or Wraiths, we love reading and writing about their exploits.

    We have several goals in mind?

    • An index of all Rogue, Wraith, and other squadron fics on the Jedi Council boards. We?re in the minority here (in case you haven?t noticed :p), so it?s just too blasted hard to find each other on the boards themselves.

    • A discussion thread about the pilots, their characterizations, tips for writing a good squad fic?whatever you all want to talk about, provided it pertains to pilot writing.

    • A challenge every month or so, with links to responses posted here as well

    • Featured fics and author interviews


    If you have a pilot fic, or if you know of one we?ve missed (since there are likely some whose authors have left the boards), here's the information our index volunteers are looking for:

    Link and Title to your story
    Notes (if applicable)

    It would also be appreciated if you could submit this information in markup form. Please PM the following to [link=]Pilot_Fic_Index[/link]:

    {link=insert the link to your fic here]Insert the title of your fic here{/link]
    {b]Summary:{/b] Insert your summary here!
    {b]Timeframe:{/b] Insert the timeframe for your fic here!
    {b]Characters:{/b] Insert the characters appearing in your fic here!
    {b]Genre:{/b] Insert your fic?s genre here!
    {b]Notes:{/b] If applicable, insert your author notes here!

    You can either do this by hand or you can download [link=]Lane's Ultra Cool Markup Code Tool[/link]! How cool is it? It's so easy an Agamarian Farmer could use it!

    Simply download it, run it, fill in the the blank text boxes as best you can, hit the shiny "Generate" button, copy the output, and PM it to the Pilot_Fic_Index. We'll clean it up and post it in the index for you!

    If you need help submitting your fics please contact the Pilot_Fic_Index, Myra, or Lane. If all else fails, just PM us what information you can and we'll get it marked up for you :)

    A Note: Submissions do not have to be squadron-centric. They can focus on the characters themselves (for example, a story about Wedge?s life before his parents? death is perfectly includable). :D

    How about original characters? We love them! So long as they're pilots, they're welcome here.

    This is essentially a Pilot-fic/Squad-fic index. Does this all make sense now? ;) If not, feel free to PM.

    Challenge #3: Rookies and Greenhorns

    This one comes courtesy of DT Index friend InyriForge.

    As much as a commanding officer would like to bring in seasoned pilots every time there's a roster vacancy, young pilots fresh from flight school or some moisture farm on Tatooine are going to be brought in at some point to fly with the big boys. For some squadrons and veteran pilots, this can be cause for some conflict. Others will embrace the new kid in the group.

    For the greenhorn, it's often a daunting experience to join an active-duty squadron for the first time.

    The challenge is this: Write a fic about a rookie

    This one is open ended, and for a reason. Feel free to attack this challenge from any angle. Perhaps you want to tell this story through the eyes of the rookie. Maybe you would like to get into a veteran's head and see what their thoughts about the new baby-faced pilot is.

    And as always, both canon and original characters are welcome.

    Submissions will be accepted from February 22nd to May 24. Voting will take place the following week.

    If you want to participate and would like brainstorming help, feel free to ask in the thread and keep an eye out for an upcoming discussion topic geared towards this challenge.

    Good luck!

    Discussion Topic #9: Theme Songs!

    Here's an absurdly simple and fun topic for all of you. No need for bullets either!

    Digging into your music libraries, what theme songs or music scores would you apply to your favorite pilots?

    You can assign songs for profic pilots, original characters, and pilots in between those gamuts (whatever that might be).

    For example, do you think Tycho's theme should be "Sharp Dressed Man" by ZZ Top? (I don't know, go with me here :p)

    Maybe you think Wedge's is "Hip to be Square" by Huey Lewis and the news?

    Go to town with this one! Feel free to link to appropriate YouTube videos if you're so inclined.


    Hey! Hey you! New person!

    Welcome to the DT Index. Got a minute? Sure you do!

    Hello everyone!

    I'm Lane, one of the new indexers and thread hosts. It's been a few years since the DownTime index has been active, but I'm thrilled to let you all know that we are back and ready to deliver all sorts of flightstick jockey wonderfulness.

    Let me take the chance to say I'm excited to be running the index again. I'd like to thank Maggy for holding onto the index sock the last few years. Big thanks as well go to Jes and Myri for establishing the first incarnation of the DownTime Index.

    Also working with me (and I'm sure she'll pop in soon to say hello) is my good friend and occasional beta reader Mirax_Corran.

    In the coming weeks Mirax and I will be adding some new fics to the index. We'll also be introducing the first of hopefully many challenges. Today, however, we'd like to give you DownTime 3.0's first discussion topic!

    Introduce Yourself!

    We want DownTime to be a community of pilot-fic readers, writers, and most importantly, friends. With that in mind, let's get to know each other a little better :D

    Here are some guiding questions. As will be the norm, there's no obligation to participate. Moving forward these will be prompts that allow us to discuss the pilot side of the GFFA as well as tips and tricks for writing fanfiction.

    So, what are you waiting for? Jump in!

  18. Who are you?

  19. Where do you hail from?

  20. Who's your favorite pilot?

  21. Squadron?

  22. How about your favorite starfighter?

  23. Your favorite pilot-themed profic book?

  24. Your favorite pilot fanfic?

  25. Have a pilot fic you want to promote?

  26. And there you go! Pull up a seat, make yourselves comfortable, and enjoy the all-new DownTime Pilot Index.

    Hi all! I'm your co-indexer/thread host. As you may have gathered, I usually go by Myra, but I'll also answer to Mirax or Maggie or Hey You There!

    Who are you? Myra!

    Where do you hail from? I'm presently located in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, where I am attending college. This is exciting, because it's a recent development.

    Who's your favorite pilot? Tycho. Oh goodness it's Tycho.

    Squadron? I think I have to say the Rogues. Cause Tycho.

    How about your favorite starfighter? I have no idea, so I'm just gonna say the Blade-32 in a pathetic attempt to start an argument.

    Your favorite pilot fic? I don't think I could ever pick.

    Have a pilot fic you want to promote? I wrote a Wedge/Iella songfic not too long ago. It's called [link=]I Tried To Do Handstands For You[/link].

    Look everyone! It's Myra! Wave to the co-host and be sure to check out her fic, because it is awesome :D

    Eh, why not both? In fact, let's just go ahead and revise the discussion to ask both questions!

    Glad to see you JP [:D] and thank you for checking out the shiny new index. We're giddy to have this thing back up and running so we can bask in the piloty goodness!

    I'll be sure to check out your fic tomorrow morning :D

    (I promise I'll answer these questions tomorrow as well!)

    Good Morning! (well technically it is for me - 0300)

    This section of the site gets the honour of my first post here :)

    # Who are you? Online - Albaholly for a decade, in R/l and 1-2-1 its Ed :)

    # Where do you hail from? I hail from the sunniest country in the world. The grand old United Kingdom

    # Who's your favorite pilot? Jag Fel

    # Squadron? 181st.

    # How about your favorite starfighter? Toughie, A-Wing I think, what can I say? I have a need for speed.

    # Your favorite pilot fic? I haven't read too many other than the ones in the official EU, although I have read and enjoyed most of LaneWinree's work, in fact it was through reading his work and talking to him that I got introduced to this site.

    # Have a pilot fic you want to promote? Errm yeah...not sure if this link will work but meh

    THe one issue I have got with it is that there appears to be a chapter missing somewhere between pages 5 and 6. Otherwise it is a fantastic read so far.

    Heh, thanks. Lane has already recommended at least 4 or 5 fics to me (which I as the padawan have dutifully read) He linked me to this page and I am gradually working my way down lol. It might take me a while.

    NOOOOO!!!!! Just "finished" the story. THe author disappeared off to the Peace corps six years ago leaving it unfinished. After this length of time I doubt it ever will be. Such a shame. Had absolutely fabulous prospects.

    Hey albaholly! Glad to see you made it over, welcome to DT and TF.N :D

    Always disappointing to see a promising fic not quite make it to completion :(

    Awesome. Just read the rules, apparently double posting is legit here. No authoritarian admins here :)

    That was an especially promising one. Very well written, great ideas and general premise for the story and suddenly it just stopped :(

    Thanks for the welcome Lane.

    Btw, can the messages above with the lists of fics be editted? I have just been reading one; Not the World?s Greatest Babysitters but Daughter_of _yubyub. I struggled through the forum posting of it and really enjoyed it. Only to find at the end that it has been archived and is now in a much more readable format.

    Yup! Myra and I can edit the main index posts.

    In the future, what you can do is send a Private Message to the Pilot_Fic_Index account. One of Myra or myself will be able see that PM and act on it :D

    Perfect. Although, that does not increase my postcount :( I want at least one star to join in with all the peolpe who have 2/3/4/5 stars or the really impressive silver and gold ones.

    You might want to take a look at the TF.N Boards [link=]Welcome Forum[/link]. The community over there is a great place to get your feet wet and figure out how everything works around here!

    Thanks for that. The one problem I am finding with this site is navigation. Both in terms of finding fics (although thumbs up for this list) and in finding everything else. It is because I am a newbie :_|

    Hello, folks! What a fantastic index! :)

    I'm Trika (or Trikes), and I'm currently located in southeastern Virginia in the United States. I am the lead of the Talon Intelligence Squadron Restoration Project, which is an epic group effort to bring back the oldbie fanfic Talon Intelligence Squadron, the late Talon Squad Leader's wonderful creation that spanned twenty huge threads, two entire years, and dozens of authors back from January 2000 until 2002. The current effort is ongoing, and a solid team of old and new authors have created four books with a fifth nearly complete, multiple extra stories and scenes, a message board and website, character art, and official crests and shirts... all of which we call "the Talonverse," our incredible place in the galaxy far, far away.

    We Talons are very much made for an index like this! Our authors have their own characters and stories, which I'll let them post and talk about as they find this index. Personally, I'll be sending information concerning our official books to the index and eventually falling into the discussions about my own creations as the other Talons find this index and as the topics and challenges warrant. All of my answers to the other questions would be from the Talonverse, so I'll get to them eventually, I'm sure! :p I'm entirely excited for this index, though, and for the other Talons to jump in here and give their take on not only our Talonverse, but of the wonderful fics they've read from various authors here!

    For a full-on introduction to the Talonverse, check out our "official" threads and sites for more information. In case you'd like to delve in head-first, I've linked to all of them and to our first book in Beyond the Saga. We'd love for you to check them out and to eventually join in the excitement and fun! We're always looking for new talent to add to our great saga! :)
