Welcome to the Expanded Universe Discussion Thread! First, some guidelines: What this thread is: This thread is first and foremost a gathering place for those writers and readers who have a fondness for expanding our knowledge of the Star Wars universe. It is intended to be a resource for those seeking to go beyond the trilogies to expand our knowledge about what we see and don't see in the Star Wars movies. This thread is to discuss the joys and/or challenges readers and writers face when trying to fill in the "missing pieces." What this thread is not: This thread is not a forum for bashing writers, readers, or proponents of Alternate Universe. Nor is it a place to debate fanon versus canon. Additionally, while this thread may in the future also serve an indexing function, wantonly advertising fics is not permitted. Failure to abide by these guidelines will result in any or all of the following: being trampled by stampeding banthas, being fed to the sarlaac, or being turned over to the forum moderators and their devious devices. That said, pull up a comfy seat, make yourself at home, and join in the fun! What are your TF.N reading/writing interests? What is your definition of Expanded Universe? Why do you enjoy reading/writing EU fics?
