    If you write 'em or read 'em, then you know the kind I'm talking about.

    A lot of exclusive databank threads rotate their way to the top of this forum from time to time, none of which are right for the type of stories I write. This thread is not exclusive, but I do ask that if your story fits into a databank that's already made, please don't post your links here.

    I won't post a bunch of links to my own stories until I see some other people posting here, but here's the type I'm looking for:

    humor / parody
    CT / CT-AU
    strange / psychedelic / psychological
    poetic prose / poetry
    stories that don't fit into a ready-made genre category
    any others I haven't thought of at this time

    Please include genre(s) and any other pertinent information that might attract us to your tales.

    I hope I'm not the only one out there interested in unique story types. If so, then that explains why I get so few readers on my stories.

    Okay, I guess I'll put mine up.

    Title: [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7289035&replies=0]Mara Jade's Final Goodbye[/link]
    Genre: Post-NJO; poetry
    Summary: I would think that the title is pretty self-explanitory.

    That's all I have for right now. If I ever write anymore, I'll make sure to get them up here. ;)

    BTW--Good idea, zeekveerko!!

    Thanks Leah-Beth. I read your poem and posted in the thread.

    This is my latest fic:

    [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=9374067]Star Wars Episode III: Jar Jar's Big Adventure[/link]
    Genre: humor/parody
    Summary: Humorous explorations of the power Star Wars has over its fans / Jar Jar and the Skywalker twins have an adventure that takes up more of the "movie" than the Anakin/Obi/Amidala plot.

    actually, all of my stories fit into the 'unique / less-popular genre' category, and they're all linked in my sig...

    anyone else?

    Genre: Noir/Mystery
    Summary: Shared Universe(no major characters) fic: Sergeant "Mage" Wizall is sent to investigate the murder of a fellow Starfighter Command OSI Agent. What he finds is a web of intrigue that leads him through a plot that involves the murder of the Agent, a blackmarket theft ring, and the night club that ties it all together.

    Thanks for providing this thread! I had just been thinking of creating one of my own.

    no prob, Coota. I assure you my reasons were mostly selfish, but I figured there might be some others out there who shared my problem.

    I'll make an attempt to check all these stories out, especially those with few responses.

    Hope this helps at least a few people.

    well here it goes...

    This story takes place about two thousand years after the NJO Series.

    It kinda of a "what if" meets "future poissibility".

    The primise, The Kaminoans realized the error of thier ways as the Jedi are being purged they decide to leave behind a great tribute to the lives they beleive to have destoried because of thier contribution to the Clone wars: a Cloned replica of the Jedi order before the purge.

    After two millenia of slumber the Jedi are awakened by the decedant of great Jedi Hero, only to be brought into a battle that could tear apart the galaxy they were meant to be reborn in.

    That sounds interesting, Sketkh. You might also try these in the Original Sagas and/or Original Characters databases.

    There's an original characters database? hmmm... I should go there. This may have been the wrong place, though my genre *is* one of the less touched on ones. Not many people write Star Wars noir.

    Title: [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=7851515]They Became Heroes: From the Adventures of Luke Skywalker[/link]
    Genre: CT / AU - drama/ adventure
    Summary: an alternate sequal to the original classic movie, based loosely on the book 'Splinter of the Mind's Eye' by Alan Dean Foster. Replaces Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, and defies many canon themes contained in those 2 movies.

    Title:[link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=10331936]Betrayal From the Past [/link]
    Genre: AU?/OC
    Summary:

    Katha Sagara left home 5 years ago. Now something from her past has come to threaten her. But is there a worse danger lurking in the shadows to come.

    *note: This story is set about 4 years after the Battle of Endor. It was started for a gaming league so in it the Empire is still powerful and the Alliance is still a rebellion

    Summary: After Jango kills Zam, he thinks about what he has done. Boba doesn't take it very well, either.

    Perhaps this isn't the best place for my story, but I have yet to find a Fett thread like this. Any suggestions?

    Timeframe: Ancient History.

    Characters: Original Characters

    Genre: Action

    Summary:

    A Thief helps a Jedi to bring Peace and Order to the galaxy during the Sith Wars

    Notes:

    These tales can be taken as a complete story, but each tale can also be understood on it's own. They are stories which focus on the Medieval Aspect of Starwars.
