    The arena used for keeping the volunteers and guest artists for Before the Saga is packed to the gills. After all, though the volunteers number as a 'choice few,' there are thousands of characters who could make an appearance.

    For the sake of sanity, Durhelediel has grouped the characters first by canon vs. fanon, and then by millennium and then subdivided by political parties, lines of descent and whether or not they like strawberry ice cream. It seemed like a good idea at the time and, in fact, they seem to be sitting peaceably and trying to ignore each other.

    Durhelediel, on the other hand, is running amok. This is not a bad thing. She's very effective when amok, but right now she looks very panicked.

    Concerned, Kelia comes over and taps her on the shoulder. Durhelediel jumps about a foot with a yelp of alarm. This draws the attention of all those who were assuming that she had things well in hand and that they were relatively safe.

    Recognizing the danger of a panicky crowd, Kelia and Lilyhobbitjedi steer their intrepid hostess off to the side. Upon reaching the convenient daybed that someone installed near the door, Durhelediel collapses onto it, twitching in apparent agony. Kelia studies her closely with a frown.


    Kelia: We'll need three tablespoons of chocolate, a thermometer and a portable fan. And for Dur, we need Layren's inflatable Qui-Gon, a blankie and a stuffed Ewok.

    Lilyhobbitjedi (eager to please): Great idea! But what if Layren doesn't want to give him up?

    Bale (entering from stage left where he has been gathering up the envelopes for every "The Envelope Please" moment): Don't worry. The ultimate Qui-Gon fan is also someone who is rather fond of Durhelediel. I'll even conduct the negotiations myself.

    He drops the envelopes onto the cart hastily labelled "DON'T LEAVE HOME FOR THE AWARDS WITHOUT THIS STUFF!"

    Vadersmistress: Why you?

    Bale gives her a knowing look.

    Bale: Because I won't attempt to run off with said inflatable Qui-Gon.

    No one disputes this. He is about to charge off to be gallant when Durhelediel stirs from her frenzied state and moans loudly.

    Durhelediel: Not enough...Never enough...why doesn't anyone listen to me?

    Kelia takes her hand and speaks quietly as if Durhelediel is doing some deathbed speech from a chick flick.

    Kelia: What's not enough?

    Durhelediel suddenly bolts upright and starts clapping her hands for attention. The attention it gets her is that all of the Sith Lords, who weren't happy to be cooped up next to the United Folk Dancers of Alderaan in the first place, start snarling incoherently.

    Durhelediel (Loudly): Friends, Sith Lords and countrymen! Lend me your ears!

    Exar Kun (Stands up): If you start waxing poetic, you Force-blind wench, I will have the ghost of Jar-Jar Binks possess you for all time and eternity.

    Durhelediel, used to death threats from obnoxious fans, ignores him. Juliet316, Vadersmistress, Luton_Plunder and KrystalBlaze step into formation, looking formidable and glowering at anyone who dares to threaten their hostess.

    Durhelediel: I have announcement to make. Unfortunately, some of the characters who were hired haven't shown up and a few more have breached contract due to the rising number of Sith Lords that we write around here.

    The aforementioned rising number growl and clash sabers in a manly fashion to celebrate their continued status as menaces to society.

    Juliet316: So, what's the problem, Fearless Leader?

    Durhelediel (Patiently): The problem, my fellow volunteers, is that they were the hosts for each section of the awards. Now, we're going to have to improvise.

    The volunteers look seriously concerned about this. Improvisation is not, after all, something that the finest authors on the boards should practice on a regular basis and it even makes these volunteers nervous.

    KrystalBlaze: Um, Dur, I don't think that's such a good idea.

    Durhelediel (Challenging)[/

    Good luck everyone!! Oh, I'm so excited!

    For such an extraordinary occasion as this, Niobe Asha has slipped into something far less conservative than usual. She walks the red carpet in a long,black, sleeveless gown. The low, square neckline is set off by a draping jet-beaded necklace, with matching beads dripping from her ears. The dress dips to a tasteful V-back, where its curve-skimming lines flowing gracefully to a short train. She is quite visibly nervous, but playing it off well.

    Vadersmistress walks on stage and squints nervously into the lights. "Um, due to?um?an unforeseen breakdown of our situation here, it looks like the volunteers are going to be in charge for this year's Before Awards. While we try to sort out who's going to present what, I guess I'll be the one to get us started.

    Our first award of the afternoon is for Best Alternate Universe. Here are the nominees:
