    You know you're reading Souderwan or Skywalker3248 when they help you to "get" Stover....and you've read all of 3 pages of him.

    You know you're reading GreatOne when Han gets so much love it hurts. A LOT![face_beatup]

    You know you're reading ZaraValinor when the Vong are not the baddest, scariest aliens.:eek:

    You know you're reading JW Titus when you go back to read it over.....and over....and over again......

    You know you're reading a story by Kaylle when it's a veritable black hole for L/M readers.

    I posited this questions to the readers of 'Where No jedi Has Gone Before'. Here are their responses.

    You know you're reading a fanfic by RK_Striker_JK_5 when...

    ZebulaNebula- Sailor Pluto and Q bicker like Spock and Bones.

    TheProphetOfSullust- Lusa is more than a background character.

    C3P0_R2D2- 'You read a story, with a crossover about people you don't knowp, and still love it, even going so far as to say that as far as you're concerned, charicterization[sp?] is perfect.'

    Jaded_Girl- make regular appointments with your computer Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday evenings. And you haven't otherwise touched a keyboard in weeks.

    JediRose- You see RK_Striker_JK_5 listed as author? *shrugs* Sorry, I haven't ready many of your fics.

    I'm gonna make fun of myself...

    You know you are reading a fanfic by East Coast Ryder when...

    ...The fic is so serious, it's funny. :oops:

    ...You read through her series and halfway through the last one she had to stop because she's killed off all the charactors. [face_whistling]

    ...You have a pile of kleenex next to you at least three feet high... :_| (that one was by my friend Michelle.)

    You know your reading a fic by...

    oldjedinurse When whatever awful has happened is suddenly made better with J/J mush.

    When all the men are awake in the house trying to figure out if someone is pregnant.

    Jaya Solo if Jaina is paired up with Wes.

    JediJainaSoloFel if Wedge is completely clueless.

    darksideyesplease if Yoda is married.
    if there is a twist.

    Tahi if its amazing poetry.

    DarthIshtar if someone dies.
    if Jag is dead and Kyp hits on Jaina and you actually like it.
    if its full of great angst.

    LOL! [face_laugh] A friend told me I was being called out on this thread and just had to see for myself! :D I'm honored! turn. Sadly, I haven't read enough yet. But, let's see....

    You know you're reading:

    VaderLVR64 when no matter what anybody tells you about your writing, you feel completely inadequate.

    rhonderoo and Jedi Trace when they make you want to forget you normal "tough guy" persona and grab a box of kleenex!

    Arcalian when you feel like you need a puff of an inhaler to catch your breath--and you're not asmathic.

    Darth_Lex when you find hope that there are great male writers here, too. :)

    I know I'm forgetting somebody important but...that's what comes to mind. :)

    [face_thinking] You probably know you're reading a ShrunkenJedi fic when it's completely irreverent, involves Obi-Wan, Anakin, Luke or Han, and has a (very) small coterie of followers.

    You know you're reading one of Commander-DWH's works when

    -The OCs are as fleshed out as the cannons
    -The dialogue, descriptions, and plot are completely believable yet completely original
    -You're forced to laugh, cry, and angst right along with the characters
    -She's managed to pull off another obnoxious challenge with apblomb and style

    You know you're reading Jennifer_Lyn's ficcies when

    -You wonder when you last met a newbie with such talent
    -Obi-Wan and Anakin can meet in a room and not kill each other/insult each other/angst at each other
    -You find yourself smiling in the middle of it and can't seem to stop
    -...even when the genre changes on you two seconds later

    I know I'm reading a fic by oqidaun when I feel like it's a fic my good friend would have written (except he doesn't write Star Wars) You'd have to know him, but they're very similar; similar senses of humor, similar styles, very intelligently crafted work. But it's not for everybody.
    It's like boiled cabbage, you don't develop a taste for it, either you like it or you don't. [face_devil]

    Wait, that's not a very flatering analogy..., hmmm, neither is fetta cheese... [face_monkey]

    Look, if you can put aside your pre-conceptions, it's just great writing. :D

    btw: I'm totally flattered by the cabbage analogy!!!
    Personally, I love boiled cabbage.

    Very tempting to add myself to this.

    You know when you are reading one of my fics because there is at least one wet Obi-Wan scene! :) Although having said that there hasn't been one in my latest and I have only 2 posts left! Will have to fix that.

    Wow... I'm haven't been back that long but I'll start with a couple of people...

    You know you're a reading a fic by JayaSolo when you read her fic and wonder how she came up with the Wes and Jaina pairing and actually find it amusing and normal.

    ok .. since she's the only one ive actually read all the through...

    I'll just do three for now and more later...

    You know when you're reading a fic by GrandAdmiralV when Boba Fett is just too sexy for his armor.

    You know when you're reading a fic by DarthScroobius when all the little logical oversights in ANH start getting filled in and Vader starts to sound like Woody Allen (oh, the Woody Allen voice is just in my head).

    You know when you're reading a fic by Jennifer_Lyn when you hope no one walks through the door to catch you sniveling over your screen.

    Okay, my turn to add some...

    You know you're reading a story by lindemacil when you want to just go up to your room, curl up in a blanket and drink hot chocolate because her stories are just that comfortable and homey.

    You know you're reading a story by oqidaun when either you're busting your gut laughing because it's so ridiculously funny, or you're scratching your head because the plot is making you think so much (something my summer vacation brain sometimes revolts against).

    You know you're reading a story by Fluff_Slayer when she managed to fit a coherent story into 100 words (yes, I've been lurking in the Drabble Diaries. So sue me. :p).

    You know you're reading a fic by Thrawn McEwok when...

    Even it's as innocent as can be, you're still frantically looking for some sort of diabolical plot twist.

    You know you're reading a fic by Trickster_Jaina_Fel when...

    It's perfect J/Z, better than the profics.

    The angst causes your heart to stop.

    You wish Sanar, Devnos and the rest were canon. And then you say 'Who cares? It's still awesome!'

    Yes, I am giving into the temptation to do this for myself. (I don't quite feel I know anyone's else work here well enough to properly do it for them.)

    You know you are reading one of my works when:

    --There are handmaidens.

    --The whole story revolves around a handmaiden who has died, or whose canon death we all know is coming--

    --Angst, angst, angst.

    --It is all in first person. Hey, I do know how to write in third person & I actually use it. But you would never guess that from my contributions to this board.

    --Pretty, pretty prose.

    --Either that, or death by description, and arrest for overuse of adjectives.


    --Girl cooties. Like, it could be more girly, but I would be hard pressed to guess how.

    You know you're reading a fanfic by Souderwan when you feel like re-writing all of your completed fanfics to a higher level of quality.

    Seriously, that's what made me want to redo "The Chronicles of Sidious".

    You know you're reading a fanfic by Exeter when the plot is as intricate as a nineteenth century Russian novel and the characters are just as wonderful.

    You know you're reading a fanfic by JediMindTrickOOO when you've been introduced to one of the Galaxy's smoothest scoundrel OCs, watched a delightfully evil armless Obi-Wan take orders from Anakin and swooned over beautiful poetry. Talk about diversity!

    In my case, I know I'm reading a fic by oqidaun when I look over my shoulder and make sure all the doors are locked before I actually start reading the post. [face_skull]

    I know I'm reading a fic by Darth_Scroobius when I laugh out loud at least three times during each chapter. [face_laugh]

    And I know I'm reading a fic by Souderwan when I actually care about Yoda and all the rest of those crazy Jedi. :)
