    You know you're reading a fic by DarthIshtar when the fic has a 96% death rate.

    You know you're reading a fic by Qui-Long-Gone when you're glad he won't use a beta because the typos make the story so much more interesing.

    I thought Leona was his beta?

    [face_laugh] [face_laugh] Those were great.

    Oops...

    You know you're reading one by Leona when all emotional attachments to Qui-Gon make perfect sense.

    You know you're reading a fic by DarthIshtar

    when you have to take a week off work to keep up with the updates. And the body count.

    LOL. I should let my readers help bury the characters. It'll keep the stench down.

    On the other hand, in the last post where I killed someone, 40 people got incinerated when the ship that they were being transferred to was destroyed by the prison ship they were escaping from. So, no burial necessary.

    As a gravedigger at $10 an hour I could retire happily to Greece off one of Ish's fics.

    I'm so putting that in my sig somewhere.

    Except not today. My best friend's dad, Richard Farnham, died and so that's the last line.

    You know you're reading a fic by Eeilli when the recipes are as interesting as the fic itself and you really wish you knew how to use a wok.

    [face_laugh] [face_laugh] [face_laugh] [face_laugh]

    Drabbo, hon, you crack me up beyond all belief. Brava!

    You know you're reading a fic by Vongchild when:

    - No matter what it is, it's AU in some way.

    - You end up liking Nin Yim, even if you keep telling yourself that you really hate the Vong.

    - Vergere, Nin Yim and Tahiri all make an appearance at some point, regardless of when it is set or if the characters are actually supposed to be dead.


    Geez, Lusa! Thanks! [face_laugh]

    You know you are reading a fic by Lusa_thul when:
    1. You suddenly think that Zekk belongs with an OC, even if you're an avid J/Zer
    2. Even if it's happy at the moment, you know it's all going to go down hill and someone is going to end up dead/sterile/catatonic(sp).
    2. You have nightmares about being hung by your elbows from a wall
    3. The sequel is shorter than the original and somehow she has finished four fics in the time you've written one.

    You know you are reading a fic by McEwok when:
    1. It's something weird like Tahiri/Kunra or Jaina/Lowbacca, the Mods aren't on his case, and you LIKE the pairings.
    2. He seems to get away with so much more than most people.
    3. You came, you read, you're confuzled.

    [face_laugh] Well, I still haven't decided what's gonna happen to her, to tell the truth! :p

    [face_batting] Janson/Mon Mothma? :D

    How about Janson/Leia. It's cold on Hoth, and he's warm and cuddly with the Bacta bloat. :p [face_whistling]

    *bows* :) :p

    You know it's Vc when:
    1.) There are schoolkids with ISSR crushes on their Yuuzhan Vong classmates.
    2.) Tahiri's family situation is cheerfully irregular.
    3.) Anakin stays dead, but still contrives to have something to do in the plot.

    Oh well! Thanks for clearing that up!

    You know it's SilSolo when...

    1. J/TK is a surefire sign
    2. Ben Skywalker's another.
    3. The OC named Sil completes the puzzle.

    Jade! Are you being mean to our friendly moddess? [face_shame_on_you] That just will not do.

    LOL, these are great...

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

    Tkeira_Lea

    ... when the cliffhangers don't just last one post. They last several agonizing, miserable months, but you love every minute of it.

    ... when the story miraculously has not transported you into the Star Wars galaxy, but you look around your surroundings and suddenly you see da Sphinx and da pyramids and are in da Nile...

    Ugh, bad puns, bad puns, must shoot self in foot!

    You know you're reading one by Idrelle_Miocovani when an Ewok jumps a Wookiee and you can expect the Ewok to win.

    I like bad puns. :p

    Jade! Are you being mean to our friendly moddess?

    Yes...no...I confess nothing. :D But the typos make her special. What's that saying? "Accident is the mother of all invention." That's you, Leona. :p

    And the cliffhangers - sometimes I like falling behind on TKL's stories, just so I don't have to suffer through those. [face_mischief] I'm weak, I know. :p
