    Crystal Reef Palace Auditorium
    Your definitive guide to JC Jacen Solo/Tenel Ka Chume Ta? Djo Fan Fiction


    @};- @};- @};-



    Welcome to the first version of the Crystal Reef Palace Auditorium ? the only encompassing index and resource thread dedicated to bringing you the entire collection of Jacen/Tenel Ka fan fiction available on the JC. You?ll find writing from both YJK and NJO and, in some cases, other eras. While all fiction containing Jacen Solo and Tenel Ka Chume Ta? Djo is linked within this index, that doesn?t mean the two characters are romantically involved in every story.

    If you discover CRPA is missing a story, we welcome you to PM us with the information. Also, if you have any ideas or suggestions to improve CRPA, we would love to hear from you. We encourage participation from writers and readers alike! You?re doing us a favour!

    Please note that CRPA is not just an index. You?re also welcome to discuss anything J/TK related (we recommend you read the current discussion topic first) or ask any questions. Are you having trouble remembering what happened in Crisis at Crystal Reef? Do you need descriptions of all the Hapan Palaces? Are you having a J/TK mind block? Ask here!

    CRPA is run by [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=432614]Amidala_Skywalker[/link] and [link=http://boards.theforce.net/user.asp?usr=1159182]CarrKicksDoor[/link] with thanks (see ?Acknowledgments? section) to other users for contributing to its creation.


    To Submit A Story:
    Before you submit a story, please read the following guidelines:
    [blockquote]
    ? Jacen and Tenel Ka MUST be in your story. We do not accept purely Jacen stories or purely Tenel Ka stories.
    ? It is NOT necessary for Jacen and Tenel Ka to be the central characters. However, they must be reoccurring characters (meaning they should appear more than once or twice).
    ? Jacen and Tenel Ka do NOT need to be in a romantic relationship. For example, they can be friends or one of them can be involved with another character.
    ? We accept vignettes to long epics. There?s no limit.
    ? We accept Jacen and Tenel Ka fics from any era.
    ? You CAN submit someone else?s story. Unless you manage to contact the author, you will have to write the index entry for them.
    ? The story MUST be on the JC. CRPA does not archive off-site links. If you uncover a good J/TK off-JC story, you could suggest to the author that they create an account here.
    [/blockquote]
    To submit, complete the following form and send it via PM (use the subject title ?Story Submission?) to the index sock. If you want a comprehensive and accurate entry, please make an effort to answer the entire form. Please be aware that you can write anything in the ?Notes? section. It?s an open playground.

    If, once you submit your entry and the sock hasn?t sent you a submission confirmation, you discover you?ve made an error with your entry, you may send another PM titled ?Story Submission v2?. That PM should have the correct information. If you have already received a confirmation PM and you want to fix your error, please refer to the next section.


    Editing A Current Index Entry:
    Unlike when you submit a story, you MUST be the author to edit a current index entry unless you?re notifying CRPA of a story?s completion or the author?s desertion. What do I mean by index entry? When your story is posted to the index, it has a profile that you or a friend/reader submitted. That profile is your index entry.

    CRPA understands that authors need to be able to change their index entries if a significant development occurs in their story (for example, they might want to alter the status from ?incomplete? to ?complete

    Tenel Ka and Jacen go slumming on Tatooine and get into a few barfights at the old Cantina.

    Interesting premise, but kind of odd. I can't easily see these two doing this. The grammar is also not the best. Still, it is kind of neat seeing them in an alien environment.

    As always, Tenel Ka kicks the villain the way she is expected to. Overall, the story is hilarious and it is good to see the good couple win.

    The beautimous of the thread can completely be laid at the feet of Ams who did all the coding and obaona who made our lovely banners. (And Atty, who helped with the sizing). All I did was count authors. :D

    Anyway! Sorry I hadn't answered the thread discussion question before now, but I had an unmitigated disaster with self-highlighting (no, not with the marker) that resulted in my hair resembling the fur of a calico cat (according to my brother).

    Is J/TK strictly a YJK couple in your mind? Do you think they would work in the NJO? Why?

    Honestly, I really think that it would work in the NJO. I think it would have, if Vergere hadn't dragged Jacen away from her in Star by Star. I think underneath it all, they're very much the same. Jacen used to show his insecurity by telling jokes, and I think Tenel Ka hid hers behind that stoic exterior. What do you all think?

    Jayen, Kettch: Thanks!

    Striker: Thank you for the offer! Definitely take you up on that sometime. Much appreciated :). And yes, please send your story details! That goes for everyone!

    Carr, I ?tried? white streaks the other day with ceiling paint. It apparently looked *charming*, too.

    Okay, for the record, I haven?t read a single YJK book (shame, I know!), so I definitely think J/TK works up until SbS. I?m iffy from then on because Jacen came back so different. I know Tenel Ka?s new position would have shaped her personality and attitude, but at the base, I think she remained the same. She was willing to reprise their friendship. Jacen had this? new destiny. Having said that, I think post-SbS J/TK ?fics are possible but the golden rule is to remember Traitor!Jacen is a long way from YJK!Jacen. The only benefits are more angst, more experience and a better look! Honestly, didn?t Jacen images get better once Jacen decided to ?explore himself? the Vong way?

    Actually, I should get my hands on Traitor. I?ve heard many mixed opinions ? some say it?s a big too strong, others feel the author is brilliant.

    Jacen and Tenel Ka would work in the post-NJO. I (vaguely) remember in Dark Journey how psychotic Tenel Ka went when she felt Jacen's 'death'. You telling me she woudln't act...(remembers Destiny's Way).

    Forget it. They'll gradually forget about her and resign her to EU limbo while Jacen's character is raped even more.

    I don't know anything about J/TK interaction in there, but I personally am afraid of Denning mucking things up there again.

    Ams, if you haven't read a single YJK book and have STILL managed to ship J/TK...*hugs you just for the heck of it* Because there was so little to go on with J/TK in the NJO, it was really depressing.

    Although, I have found it interesting, just as a matter of my own completely unscientific observation that on average, pretty much everyone is okay with Jaina moving on, whether to Kyp or Jag, but away from Zekk. Yet we keep desperately holding on to Jacen and Tenel Ka and refuse to relinquish him to Danni Quee. Why do you think we're holding onto the J/TK? What's there that makes us cling to it?

    Even tho it's not obvious in NJO, Jacen and TK still have complementary personalities AND much in common. I mean both of them refused to use the Force at some point in their lives and TK's strong character makes her much better for Jacen than Danni.

    Just for the record, I'm not okay with Jaina 'moving' on to either a man twice her own age or an imperfect clone of Zekk. But I digress...

    One of the things is the fact that Jacen cut off Tenel Ka's arm, but she still loves him. Also, they do complement each other quite well.

    Well, I meant on average. Per capita, there are a lot more J/J or J/K shippers than there are J/Z nowadays. Course, I did make my disclaimer that this was totally nonscientific.

    I actually think that the whole accident with the lightsabre was actually good for their relationship. First, it caused Tenel Ka to realize that she couldn't always rely on herself and she was going to have to trust other people, like and especially Jacen, because let's face it, second, there was no way Jacen was going to let her alone after that. With the massive guilt he had going on, he was going to do everything he could for her.

    And after the accident, too, of course, TK's secret was out, and that really didn't leave anything left to really block herself off from him. She wouldn't have to reveal that secret to him later on, and since it was out and he didn't think any worse of her for it (maybe thought better of her), she was okay with that.

    I have more to say, but I have to take the bro to the orthodontist before school.

    I just had another thought. Tenel Ka and Jacen did kiss at the end of The Emperor's Plague. He also gave her that gort necklace. Zekk...asked Jaina to be his co-pilot.

    Hi! Go J/TK!

    I definitely enjoy them in the YJK more. Jacen and Tenel Ka's personalities simply seem to click together. It feels right. Jacen's the joke-teller and animal-lover; Tenel Ka's the serious warrior. They go so well together.

    *thinks she has a favorite new thread at TFN*

    The links...the graphics...the interview...this thread ROCKS! :D [face_love]

    Okay, okay enough gushing...

    Is J/TK strictly a YJK couple in your mind? Do you think they would work in the NJO? Why?

    IMO, the NJO had major characterization problems, and I was rather disappointed there wasn't much J/TK interaction. That said, I believe that they could have worked as a couple (and still can since nothing else cannon wise has been established for either character). While Jacen was pretty much oblivious to the opposite sex in the NJO, Tenel Ka's reaction in Dark Journey and Jaina's remark of Jacen loving Tenel Ka but simply having been oblivous to his own feelings gave me some hope.

    Then there was Destiny's Way where they didn't even talk to each other. Oui. :p I do like them as a YJK couple, but I also like the idea of them being older so they can have a more serious relationship other than "Wow, she's pretty" or "Hmm, interesting male." There's plenty of plot development for intrigue in the Hapes Consortium and Jacen being torn between his duties as a Jedi and his heart (if the EU authors would let him have one :p :p); in fact there could be a bit of angst with Tenel Ka not wanting to be Queen Mother anymore, abdicating, seeing the chaos that insues, and having to go back for the good of her people. I think there's a lot of potential if the authors were willing to explore it.

    As for why J/TK shippers hang on while people have accepted Jaina moving on -- of the two Solo twins, her relationship with a significant other was actually written about. In Star by Star, there was a line where she knew she cared about Zekk as a friend but that was all; kind of sucky closure, but it was still closure. There's never been any definative closure (as far as I remember reading) for Jacen and Tenel Ka. It seemed like there was something there for at least one of them but stuff (Vergere, for example) would keep getting in the way.

    Also, I (and probably most Jacen fans) never really took a liking to Danni as a love interest. He saves her life, is actually interested in her (i.e. showing that he had a pulse), and she tells him that he's too young for her. Ooookay. Jacen comes back from being tortured for months and Danni's all "You have facial hair and scars, you're a manly man, RAWR!" and Jacen is doing the "What's that over there?" completely ignoring her bit. Beyond his initial interest in Vector Prime, we never get to hear from Jacen's point of view of how he feels about Danni; the Barabel in the Force Heretic series is the one to tell us she can sense Jacen's concern for Danni. Why not have Jacen think, "I'm concerned about Danni" instead of hearing it from a secondary source?

    I think I'll go work on the challenge now. I just got an idea. :D [face_devil] [face_laugh]

    Danni's all "You have facial hair and scars, you're a manly man, RAWR!" and Jacen is doing the "What's that over there?" completely ignoring her bit. ROFL!!!

    Sometimes I just wonder if they're deliberately making Jacen oblivious to women. And as for Vergere, well, as my friend Inyri would say, she's now extra crispy fried chicken. I hope she stays that way, too.

    I think it'll work in the NJO--think about it this way--the gallant knight and the noble queen--it's a universal story, and I think that's what makes us like it.

    And just as another point of conversation--could Tenel Ka and Jacen get together without her having to abdicate the throne? After all, isn't Jacen still directly in line to be a prince of Alderaan, even if Alderaan doesn't exist anymore? And depending on Threepio's version of the story...King of Corellia too? ;) (The last part was a joke, but I'm serious about the first part.)

    In my opinion, there's no reason why they can't get together. I have not read the majority of njo books because I was so disappointed with them, but was it stated that Tenel Ka's marriage had to be royal? Isolder married Teneniel, after all, and she wasn't an official princess. Or is it different for the Queen Mother?

    Either way, I could see them getting together without Tenel Ka having to abdicate the throne. I agree with Carr. If there is any disapproval, there is the fact that Jacen is the son of the former Chief of State and the former princess of Alderaan.

    They can definitely get together without her having to abdicate the throne. She loves him. He supposedly loves her.

    EDIT:

    And I sent in a bunch of info on my fics a few days ago, but the PM hasn't been read.

    Thank you, Lady_Jedi_Carenix! :) By the way, I noticed you have a J/TK fic called "Finding Your Way". Would you like to send in an index entry for that?

    Carr: I think it'll work in the NJO--think about it this way--the gallant knight and the noble queen--it's a universal story, and I think that's what makes us like it.

    I couldn?t have said it better, Carr. That is truly universal.

    Dathomiran: I have not read the majority of njo books because I was so disappointed with them, but was it stated that Tenel Ka's marriage had to be royal? Isolder married Teneniel, after all, and she wasn't an official princess. Or is it different for the Queen Mother?

    I can?t quote the source, but I do think Tenel Ka?s consort will need to be royalty. Teneniel?s grandmother held the deed to Dathomir, which made Teneniel Princess of Dathomir and thus, royalty. Personally, I consider Jacen royalty. I never understood why Leia wasn?t Princess (or even Queen) of New Alderaan. I think Jacen could claim to be a part of New Alderaan?s royal house (wouldn?t Queen Mother Tenel Ka and Prince Consort Jacen Solo travelling to New Alderaan make an interesting story? That could be another challenge idea :D).

    Striker: And I sent in a bunch of info on my fics a few days ago, but the PM hasn't been read.

    I hadn?t logged into the sock since the weekend, so that?s my fault. In any case, I did receive your PMs. Thank you! :) However, the sock can?t reply to PMs because it has less than twenty posts, so I?ll send the acknowledgements through my username.

    Okay, has anyone else had any ideas for the challenge? :)

    Well, I put up a post in response to the challenge, so I hope it goes over well. [face_worried]

    CarrKicksDoor: I'm pretty sure Jacen's obliviousness of women was done on purpose. Considering the way that TUF ends with Danni deciding that she once loved Jacen but doesn't anymore, I get the feeling the NJO authors didn't want to touch "Jacen relationships" with a ten-foot pole. ;)

    Funny that you should also bring up the "King of Corellia" bit (I've been skimming through The Courtship of Princess Leia for info on Hapes), but I'd agree that Jacen is "technically" royalty, so he should be eligible as Tenel Ka's consort. I think they could marry and not have Tenel Ka abdicate the thone, but I wonder if some authors might think of that as a dead end for Jacen's character (i.e. might think they've just gotten him stuck on Hapes). TK and Jacen would definately need to have an "understanding" that she's still Queen Mother and he's still a Jedi Knight, so they both have important jobs they must do and can't tell the other not to do what they do (i.e. they may be married but Jacen may end up spending half the time hopping around the galaxy while she has to stay on Hapes to run things and keep her relatives from killing each other).

    Amidala_Skywalker: You're welcome. ;) :) I will definately send in an index entry for my fanfic, but first I want to make sure it actually has Tenel Ka make an appearance (I have the plans, but the muse might change her mind ;) [face_laugh]). :)

    wouldn?t Queen Mother Tenel Ka and Prince Consort Jacen Solo travelling to New Alderaan make an interesting story?

    Hmmm...it's definately a nice little blot bunny. :)

    I think it could absolutely work that way. I mean, Han and Leia were apart all the time, and they still managed to create a strong marriage and a good family enviroment for their children (for the most part). I think that could definitely work for Jacen and Tenel Ka--the only thing that really would have changed for Jacen would be where he went home to after he was finished with a mission.
