    No, I figured out how to cut it with it still making sense. I really didn't want to write those parts anyways. Thanks though.

    Great story Hazel.

    What's the most unusual fanfic with L/M you have read, for me it's Imperials, on FFN

    Hi newdawn12. Welcome to the SJRS.

    Here we try to avoid talking about specific stories, but feel free to talk in terms of plot.

    Perhaps a better discussion topic would be: what is the oddest LM plot you have ever come across, or thought up yourself?

    not sure what the oddest plot has been...

    No activity for a month? too bad we didn't go with that fairy tales challenge. Now school will be starting for many....

    Oh poo. I COMPLETELY forgot about the fairy tales challenge. As some of you know, real life was not kind to me last month and I've yet to fully mentally recover.

    Do we still want to do it? I leave the country in about a week but I can quickly make up a challenge.

    Ok. It can't be any sort of 'pick a number' challenge unless someone else wants to run it (I'm going completely off the grid from August 14-22). Does anyone want to run something, or do you guys just want a simple fairy tale challenge done like my earlier challenges?

    Hi all, I've just returned after an age away from the SW fandom and trying to get used to the new boards! How is the state of play around the good old' SJRS?

    I'd probably be up for participating in a challenge.

    Where have you been JadeLotus? I missed you! There have been some good L/M stories written in the last year. I look forward to reading some of your new works!

    DRL, unfortunately, and other fandoms. But I'm glad to be back and get into reading some great fics - if someone would like to rec some I would be very grateful :D

    I really liked Ginchy's [link=http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7789470/1/Echoes-of-Always]Echos of Always[/link]. The problem with stories started before the big move to the boards is they are truncated after 10K characters. So if you want to read pre-move stories you probably need to go to FFN to see if the author posted them there.

    I would recommend all of my stories, but pimping your own fics is not allowed. I did take over and finished RedGold's fanfic Second to None. I was pretty happy about that. It drove me crazy that she wrote two chapters and then quit. I'm glad she gave it to me to finish.

    Leroy! Stop pimping those stories!

    Hello JadeLodus, I don't think we have actually ever interacted here before, but welcome back. I've read many of your stories.

    With the truncation issue it's pretty much impossible to read any pre-move stories, and the index is kinda broken due to the link issue anyways. But there has been a couple good LM stories posted by Jedi_Lover, me (small, shameless pimp) and a few others. I'm considering aproaching the other mods once I get back from vacation to see if I can start up a new post-move LM index/discussion thread. Perhaps a new one will encourage more newbies to post? Yay/Nay?

    I'll see if I can think of a challenge that does not require my participation and post by the end of the day.

    Yay from me.

    As for a challenge. Why not something simple like we rewrite a L/M scene from one of the profics to make it more romantic. There had to be a billion times I wanted Luke or Mara to stop screwing around and get at it. Even after they married I wanted them to be more romantic.

    Or I would like to see a story that followed Mara or Luke's thoughts from the time he gave her his lightsaber until she left to where ever she went...which obviously was not Luke's bed. [face_bleh]

    Welcome to the boards, @JadeLotus

    That's a great idea, to have an L/M index

    Good idea! Though with the truncation, many of the stories will still be unreadable, at least the older ones, but at least the links could be corrected.

    Welcome to the SJRS AUGUST CHALLENGE!

    Since I am off to visit some castles in England (and be a complete history geek for a week), this challenge will be fairly simple. I will be in castles and you will be writing about them (possibly)! For this challenge you must take the plot of a classic fairy tale (Grimm or otherwise) and insert Luke and Mara into it. If you don’t feel like writing the entire fairy tale (though you can find some examples of pretty condescend fairy tales all over the internet), just write a scene from it.

    To make things a bit interesting, don’t tell your readers what fairy tale you picked: see if they can guess.

    You must include the words:

    -Popsicle
    -Catastrophe
    -Pittance

    There is no due date. Have fun!

    hmm, I am terrible with titles (currently my title reveals the fairy tale), so I am not sure if I could do this exactly as you have written, but this challenge sounds fun. :)

    I don't know many fairy tales so I looked up Grimms' Fairy Tales. Wow! Most of them are horrible snuff stories! I can't believe parents used to read those stories to their kids!
