    A FORUM NAMED BEFORE (Sung to "A Boy Named Sue")

    My first fan fic was back in ?01,
    About Amidala and Obi-Wan,
    It was fifty posts long and I coulda written a hundred more.
    Now, that story wasn?t alone
    In being a bad hitherto unknown
    Oh, moderator, I wish that I?d known Before.

    Well, I kept on turnin? out sappy junk
    It?s deep-n-sophisticated, I musta thunk,
    I shudder to think of that crap I put readers through.
    Some noob would giggle and my ego would grow
    Some plot river involving Obi-torture would flow
    I tell ya, my writing stunk ?fore I found Before.

    Well, I grew up quick when I was forced to change,
    Oldbies want legit emotional range,
    And my writing didn?t have near enough.
    But I still was interested in fic,
    So I looked for a way to get my fix,
    And write more than unadulterated fluff.

    Well, I tried to write some Imperial action,
    Hoping lasers would quench my addiction,
    But I didn?t have a plot worth shooting for.
    Next came an epic starring Mace Windu,
    But I never wrote Chapter Two,
    Why didn?t I click that link that said ?Before??

    Well, I knew that I was in quite a bind,
    I wanted to write something good for the mind,
    And something that would make me feel good, too.
    So I made a character pure from scratch,
    Gamma-9 was the odd clone of the batch
    She could secretly use the Force! The last Jedi, of course!
    Oh, ol? Mary Sue.

    But then a buddy sent me a PM,
    Asking if I?d review a story for him,
    I said, sure, if you want I?ll see what I can do, my friend
    The story was from an era unrecognized,
    But there was bandits and spectacular crimes,
    Stumbling an? a bumbling through the tale and a jail at the end.

    I told him, this story?s awful nice,
    But while you do mention Jedi Knights,
    I noticed that your timeline doesn?t work ?round Yavin IV!
    He said: ?Of course, I don?t know why it would
    I?m trying to get the authenticity good,
    I mean, it ain?t for Saga, it?s meant for Before.?

    And I said: ?What you talkin? ?bout??
    And he said: ?It?s a good forum, you should check it out,
    It isn?t big, but there?s some real nice stuff in there.?
    So I clicked on the link and I said: ?Oh my!?
    I knew I could kiss my writing blues goodbyes,
    I saw new plots forming outta thin air.

    Now, I know that it doesn?t have Obi-Wan,
    Except for maybe when he?s awfully young,
    But c?mon now, there?s plenty of worlds left to explore!
    The level of freedom is limitless,
    And in a familiar setting, that?s total bliss,
    Oh boy! How I love that forum called ?Before?.

    I?d never dream of saying anything bad,
    Or dismissing the tons of fun that can be had,
    In toying with Solos and Skywalkers galore.
    But in my personal estimation
    You?ll never find a better fic creation
    Than the one you?ll find squeezed next to big ol? Saga and Beyond?
    I?m talking about my Before! I love that forum!

    Siri Tachi and her childhood friend Obi-wan Kenobi walked onto the stage. Obi-wan kept wondering what could possess her to giggle incessantly during one of the most important events of fanfiction.

    She continued and he had to know before they made fools out of themselves before the entire audience. Tugging on her arm he demanded to know what was so funny. Her response, the thought of him singing.

    ?I?m not going to sing,? he replied.

    ?You have to," she said. "This is the Best Songfic category.?

    Looking at the envelope he found it was that category. He couldn?t move. There was no way he could sing the list of nominees. Not after that padawan talent contest and he crashed every mirror within a 20 kilometer range.

    Looking at his face Siri laughed harder and moved the stricken Jedi Padawan away from the mike. He would pay her back eventually for her trickery, but she?d get what she wanted now, to name the nominees for Best Songfic.
