    37. A story with a summary that caught your attention. by @Chyntuck It is the longest day radio londres A start with the Kessel run about a period in history that has my attention namely WW2 because my mother had been a teenager during that period and is now telling all her stories.

Ben Skywalker meeting Hondo telling him about all his adventures and rescuing him. Uncle Hondo meeting Mara and Luke. Sithlings and their past discussing around a campfire. Hondo and his pirates, interrupting him when he is telling them what is important. They are in stardust and steel

    34. A story with Less than five syllables in the title: Agwe by @rktho, it is a story of slavers, weird aliens and Jedi. Short and easily read it brings some interesting lore related to cloning into the Star Wars universe, and it's ending vaguely reminded me of one of my own stories. That is to say nothing of its beginning which involves a certain hooded banker with an attitude.

    34. A story with less than five syllables in the title: Sabaac Faces by @WarmNyota_SweetAyesha is a delightful vignette written for the Sassy Obi-Wan Quote Mini-Game Challenge depicting Luke's gradual mastery of the sabaac face.

    37. A story with a summary that caught your attention: Short mission by @earlybird-obi-wan caught my eye with its summary making it clear the story manages to combine the sassy Obi-Wan quote Mini-Game challenge quote with the wonderful Spring Bingo challenge using some endearing OC's.

    Wrote up a review today!

    25. A WIP you wish would start again: Tale as Old as Time by @aleja2. The Beauty and the Beast retold as an old-school L/M story – or should I say an old school L/M story told as The Beauty and the Beast? At any rate, it's a magnificent piece of fanfic that merges seamlessly the traditional tale with the SW universe. The last update is from 2019, but as aleja2 has disappeared for years in the past and returned to update, I'm not giving up hope. (link to review)

    And another:

    29. A fic by an author you love: Rocks and Hard Places by @Thumper09, a one-shot about a Rebel pilot who is downed on a planet inhabited by the most peculiar species. This takes the alienness up to eleven in a wonderful tale about two very different beings who somehow manage to communicate. (link to review)

    And yet another:

    14. A story featuring an original character: Masters of the Game by @LLL – where Sereine, a savvy political operator from Naboo, is a young Palpatine's mistress but also his campaign manager for his run for the Senate in 48 BBY. She's smart and she's a real pro, but she also fell for the wrong guy, and you can't help that ominous feeling when the story is over. (link to review)

    And yet-yet another!

    39. A story where the character(s) or relationship(s) caught your attention: Take a Memo by @DarthIshtar, who took head-on the challenge of making the story of Leia's personal assistant interesting and is doing an amazing job at it. Alole may spend most of her time doing filing, but her POV about the inner workings of the fledgling New Republic is fascinating, and she doesn't even realise how important her role and position are.

    19. A story that is rich in world-building -- Moon Station - A Star Wars Short Story by @TheChorlianCorner has a fantastic contained setting within the workings of a mining station on a nameless moon, somewhere and sometime Before the Saga in the GFFA. I don't want to give away too much, but there are so many intriguing pieces to the worldbuilding in this tale. Suffice it to say that I enjoyed the balance of gritty, practical details that feel entirely realistic for an isolated station full of destitute residents, along with some really interesting bits of more fantastical lore that we get a few peeks at throughout the story. =D=

    36. A story with a title that caught your attention: He is a doctor or? Underrated Gems of the Early 2000’s Challenge by @earlybird-obi-wan, yes big wonder how this title got my attention. :p
    Beyond being my own challenge, it is an investigative story where an old Corellian Jedi is looking into a toy line that has been made into a secret weapons cache, resulting in the injuries/death of civilians and Clones alike. I look forward to tracking its further development!

    A new one from me:

    27. A multi-chapter story where you have left more than one review: Hearts of the Children by @DarthIshtar, an OT-era Skywalker family AU that's part Rebellion adventure, part political thriller, with a cast of thousands that includes not only the usual suspects but also all your favourite secondary characters from the old and the new EU. This includes many, many unexpected twists on the story of the OT and I'm extremely eager to find out how Ish will ultimately resolve the various plots and sub-plots she has put in motion.
