    12. Are you a heavy TV watcher? Are you a frequent theatre or movie-goer? Unfortunately, I am. It helps fuel my desire to create my own things. Going to the cinema helps me escape the drudgery of life. A small window to unwind and relax, before I focus on the more important stuff again.

    Star Wars Preferences
    16. Are you a SW movie person or an Expanded Universe person? The films have an edge, but I've always enjoyed the Expanded Universe. I started reading it from the NJO onwards and the Yuuzhan Vong actually left a positive impression on me.
    17. Are you a SW Legends person or a SW New Canon person? Both via selective election.
    18. What’s your favourite SW movie/book/comic/game? Empire Strikes Back, Star by Star, Star Wars Legacy, and Knights of the Old Republic II
    19. Who’s your favourite SW character/‘ship? My favourite character is Luke Skywalker, but I am also very intrigued by Kylo Ren. My favourite ship is sort of a tie between the X-Wing and the N1 Naboo starfighter. Capital ship it would be Home One or the EU Mandator SSD.

    Fanfic Reading and Writing Preferences
    20. Romance, adventure, drama, humour or something else? All of them. I am convinced the most entertaining stories exist as a meld of romance, adventure, drama and humour.
    21. Long stories, short stories, poems, songfics or something else? I prefer to read Long and Short stories. Writing-wise, I guess longer stories. Short stories require a certain skill that I do not yet possess.
    22. Before, Saga or Beyond? I like to read stories during any period, especially with a lot of original characters by the fanficcers, and as a writer I will probably focus on Beyond, or something set during the new trilogy.
    23. Canon, Legends, AU, crossover? Any of the above.
    24. Canon/Legends characters or original characters? Any particular favourites you’d like to mention? Original characters, but I don't mind reading about Canon characters either. If someone manages a good Skywalker story, or any of the others,I would happily read them. My preference is to see original characters, though.
    25. What type of fic wouldn’t you read/write? Not sure yet, haven't read enough to find out what I dislike. I'd probably not write something completely non-canon, such as crossovers. I suppose I also wouldn't enjoy reading crossovers.
    26. Do you read/write other fandoms or original fiction? Yes, I am working on original fiction, but I wanted to go back into writing Star Wars fanfiction in order to keep myself writing on a steady basis and because I enjoyed it immensely when I was younger. I see it as a writing exercise, to keep my creative juices going, without losing faith in my abilities.

    JCF Questions
    27. What brought you to the JCF? To the Fanfic boards? What brought me to these boards was a desire to write another Star Wars fanfiction and interact with other fanficcers. I am also planning on being a beta reader so I can help someone else hone their craft/story/characters, because of aspirations of becoming an editor.
    28. Do you visit Fanfic Resource often? If yes, what are your favourite threads? From now on, I will, yes :). No favourite threads yet.
    29. Do you venture out of the Fan Fiction boards to other JC forums? If so, which ones? Mostly I go to the Literature section.

    Other
    30. Anything else we should know about you?
    Perhaps I am a bit shy, and odd. Don't have a lot of things to say, and I am probably too timid to critique your work, unless you ask me to. (Hence why I want to become a beta reader).

    P.S. I plagiarised someone's formatting, but I forgot the username. Please accept my apologies once you see this.

    Favourite Star Wars game...Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight. Typical answer, I know.

    Fan fics I do not want to write: comedy. I'm not that funny and I couldn't make it work in a Star Wars context if I tried.


    Other
    Yep, looking for a collaborator to write with. I prefer collaborative writing because it enables me to break down the characters into a case study.

    1. Hello, my (user) name is ___________ and I’m a fanficcer.
    pregnantpadme
    2. Do you use other handles/socks on the JCF?
    I've also been referred to as Preggers, PP, Elle, and occasionally 'The Prophetess of Doom"
    3. When should we wish you a happy birthday?
    Anytime you'd like! But officially - August 20th.
    4. Which country are you from?
    USA
    5. What languages do you speak?
    Sadly... only English
    6. What do you do in RL?
    Sales in the Security Industry
    7. Are you a writer, a reader or a lurker? A combination thereof?
    I've been all of the above at various times, but am feeling the urge to write again and trying to find the muse.

    Bits and Pieces about You
    8. What’s your favourite non-SW movie/book?
    Right now - Pitch Perfect... but it changes. Books - if I had to give one fave - I'd say East of Eden.
    9. What sort of music do you like?
    Classic Rock, Indie, Punk, - almost anything that I may be seeing at Coachella.
    10. What hobbies do you have besides fanfic?
    Are there any other things to do in my limited free time??? [face_blush] I do watch men's tennis and track the standings. Because I am the ultimate dork.
    11. What’s your favourite food? Your favourite drink? Your favourite guilty pleasure?
    Food - things I cook, Indian, and red meat. Drink - Wine when it's chilly, vodka when it's warm out. Guilty pleasure - Hanging out in my jammies all day while reading/listening to men's tennis, then realizing it's cocktail hour and making myself a drink, and continuing to read and watch/listen to tennis.
    12. Are you a heavy TV watcher? Are you a frequent theatre or movie-goer?
    I'm a news junkie and have that on most of the day when I'm home, but as far as actual TV shows - I usually binge watch after the series has ended. I have a 12 year old son who loves all things Marvel, so we see every A/A movie that comes out.
    13. Do you like art? Museums? Travelling? Anything else?
    All of the above. I travel a lot for work and try to find something interesting int he cities I go to if I can get away from clients for a bit.
    14. Do you have a favourite quote?
    Too many to count...
    15. Tell is a fun fact about yourself!
    I've become a food porn addict and love to look up recipes and try them out. Especially Crock Pot recipes, though I'm always on the hunt for ones that don't contain a lot of sodium. Suggestions welcome!

    Star Wars Preferences
    16. Are you a SW movie person or an Expanded Universe person?
    Both. I found TF.N because I saw AotC and found A/P relationship unsatisfying as written. On the boards I rediscovered Mara Jade and started picking up EU books to read her... which lead to Jaina... and then finally Tahiri. SInce Han and Leia's romance in ESB sort of shaped my ideal of romance when I was a kid, you could say that they are my original OTP - though I don't typically read them on the boards.
    17. Are you a SW Legends person or a SW New Canon person?
    Legends, but I'm holding out hope that I'll not be as disappointed with the ST as I was with the PT
    18. What’s your favourite SW movie/book/comic/game?
    Movie - ESB, Book - See above, Comic - The Mara Jade Trade PB, Game - watching my son play PS4 Battlefront is really fun. I"m trying to play but I may just be too old to learn to work that damn controller. It's frustrating when you spend 20 minutes as Darth Vader and all you manage to do is run him into walls. Not very badass.
    19. Who’s your favourite SW character/‘ship?
    Tahiri. Unquestionably Tahiri. And then Tahiri and anyone if it's written well. A/T and A/J will always get a look from me, but I've read some really good T and Jag. After that, it's less about the couple and more about the writing, so I'll skip a ton of H&L, L&M or A&P if the writing is bad, and I'll stay up all night to read any of the above if it's written well.

    Fanfic Reading and Writing Preferences
    20. Romance, adventure, drama, humour or something else?
    Romance and drama, and humor, though ideally all in one story.
    21. Long stories, short stories, poems, songfics or something else?
    I prefer long stories that I can really get invested in, though I'll read shorter ones too. Not a huge fan of drabbles or song fics or poems, they don't tend to offer enough of an escape for me.
    22. Before, Saga or Beyond?
    Saga and Beyond
    23. Canon, Legends, AU, crossover?
    Canon, Legends and AU, though for some reason I have rarely been able to get into OC's unless they are thrown in with the usual suspects. OC only stories just never seem to grab me.
    24. Canon/Legends characters or original characters? Any particular favourites you’d like to mention?
    See above
    25. What type of fic wouldn’t you read/write?
    Probably Before. What I love and find so valuable about fan fic is that it gives us a way to spend more time with and explore our favorite characters. Since I have never been drawn to the Before time period, I don't know those characters and therefore am not drawn to exploring them.
    26. Do you read/write other fandoms or original fiction?
    Harry Potter - though mostly AU/ Dramione. Southern Vampire Mysteries, usually AU there too. I stumbled on X-Files fan fic a hundred years ago, back in the aol dial up days... With the new mini series about to come out... I may venture back there too.

    JCF Questions
    27. What brought you to the JCF? To the Fanfic boards?
    A series of coincidences - I stumbled across my old emails (that i thought were lost forever) with my beta from a story I posted that was lost during the board conversion. I had also lost all of my docs from that story and thought it was simply gone. Turns out all of our edits were still attached to those emails. I then emailed him. This happened right before TFA was released. I saw the movie and then was curious about what was happening on the boards. Also, I've always regretted not finishing my longest story and would really like to try to do so.
    28. Do you visit Fanfic Resource often? If yes, what are your favourite threads?
    Just starting again - don't have any favs yet.
    29. Do you venture out of the Fan Fiction boards to other JC forums? If so, which ones?
    No

    Hey guys, I'm new to the boards in general but came here primarily to get some reads on something I wrote a couple years ago, so with that said...
    General
    Hi, I'm Bango and I’m a fanficcer. Born in the US in August. Unfortunately I only speak English, but I have aspirations of learning Spanish and Polish. I'm a cop in RL (yep), and I guess I'm a combination of writer and reader, since I'm no longer really lurking.

    Bits and Pieces about You
    My favorite non-SW movie is Saving Private Ryan, and I'd have to say favorite book is Band of Brothers, though I absolutely loved A Separate Peace when I read it in school. I'm a huge fan of rock music (90's Alternative, Classic Rock, etc), listen to some rap, enjoy classical at times, and will try to keep an open mind to anything but country music.

    In my free time I like to read, weight lift, and watch as many movies as my Netflix account allows. I've recently developed an affinity for scotch so I'm working on developing that palate. I only watch specific shows, otherwise I just recycle stuff on Netflix/Hulu or watch movies I've not seen before.

    Star Wars Preferences
    I'm a mix of SW Movies and Expanded Universe. I really don't care for the PT, and while there were some serious duds of books in the EU, overall I loved the direction the story took and was sad to see it go (especially THRAWN!). When it comes to writing fanfic, I'm definitely a Legends person. I'm not even close to being caught up on things now. I'm trying to make my way through the first Aftermath book and I'm struggling. I don't like it (I blame the writing, not the plot).

    My favorite SW movie is The Empire Strikes Back. Yeah, cliche, I know, but oh well. I love it. It's been my favorite since I was like 6, and as I got older my reasons for liking it evolved. My favorite book is probably Heir To The Empire. I think I've read that trilogy five or six times, and while I think Dark Force Rising is also damn good, Heir just takes the cake. My favorite characters (in no particular order) are: Yoda, Thrawn, (old) Obi-Wan, Boba Fett (EU!), and Han. Depending on how much we see of him, I think Poe Dameron is going to make the list, and Rey is probably going to as well.

    Fanfic Reading and Writing Preferences
    I prefer a mix of adventure, drama, and humor in FanFic, just like my movies and other books. I'll take them in long or short story form, doesn't matter. I like reading all time periods, and I find Alternate Universe stuff fascinating so long as the person has a unique take on things and the story grips me. I've read some really cool AU stuff that totally drew me in. This is also the only kind of fanfic I write, and seeing as I've written all of like two things, I don't know that I can even really call myself a fanficcer per se.

    JCF Questions
    As I mentioned up top, I came to the JCF in the hopes of getting some more feedback on the story I put together some time ago, as well as get some help/feedback on a follow-up to that original story I'm currently writing.

    Other
    If I make a mistake or post something in the wrong place, use the wrong format, etc, just let me know. Don't want to make waves.

    Hi bango31 and welcome to the boards! Nice to see a fellow Thrawn fan :)

    For the rules specific to the fanfic boards, have a look at the pinned threads at the top of the resource forum. It may be a bit intimidating at first, but it's really not all that complicated -- plus, there's a short version for new users! You can also have a look at the opening post of each thread you want to participate in, to check if the thread has any "house rules".

    Meanwhile, join us in the social thread to meet more fanficcers [:D]

    Edit: for constructive criticism about your stories, you may also want to sign up in this thread when you start posting them.

    Chyntuck Right on, thanks for the links. I sent a message to a couple of the people listed as Beta Readers, so I'm inclined to hold off on a full posting until that process is finished. Thanks again though, and I look forward to diving deeper into the stuff you guys have to offer here. I was checking out the different resources provided in one of the intro/sticky threads...very cool stuff.

    25. What type of fic wouldn’t you read/write? I don't really care for "hard science" works or fictions that are primarily battle oriented, so I probably wouldn't write that. My fics tend to be centered on personalities. I wouldn't read a work that was poorly edited or looked like it hadn't really been thought out (lots of typos, obvious errors) just because it implies that the writer didn't put much effort into it. In terms of reading, I usually avoid fics that try too hard to be silly or outrageous by making things OOC (e.g., fics where Vader plays matchmaker, fics where Luke is cruel to others).
    26. Do you read/write other fandoms or original fiction? yes - I've read quite a bit over in the NSWFF section. I've only written one or two. I've written original fiction.

    29. Do you venture out of the Fan Fiction boards to other JC forums? If so, which ones? Occasionally I will head over to Community but I am a strict lurker there.

    13. Do you like art? Museums? Travelling? Anything else? I like art. I like museums, but haven't been to one in forever. I like travelling, but seldom do because it's too expensive. I like a lot of things.
    14. Do you have a favourite quote? "Courage is not the absence of fear, but the determination that something else is more important than fear."
    15. Tell is a fun fact about yourself! I'm probably one of the few people my age who get A-Team references.

    Star Wars Preferences

    24. Canon/Legends characters or original characters? Any particular favourites you’d like to mention? Centered around known characters, with OCs included.
    25. What type of fic wouldn’t you read/write? Slash and extremely dark fics, though it's kind of hard to define exactly what "extremely dark" means to me.
    26. Do you read/write other fandoms or original fiction? Heck yeah. All my fanfics before joining the JCF were Star Trek. I also enjoy MCU fics, specifically Avengers ones.

    JCF Questions

    1. Hello, my (user) name is ___________ and I’m a fanficcer. That would be A Blind Prophet.
    2. Do you use other handles/socks on the JCF? My original account is this: Trimaj/The Great No One. I don't use it anymore, wanted a fresh start and so forth, so guess it qualifies as a sock now, not that I've posted more than twice with it since I came back.
    3. When should we wish you a happy birthday? August 10th
    4. Which country are you from? USA
    5. What languages do you speak? English, a very, very small amount of Mandarin and Spanish
    6. What do you do in RL? Trying to find a job ATM, hopefully that changes.
    7. Are you a writer, a reader or a lurker? A combination thereof? This should answer the writer bit of the question. Also I've started to read some stuff as well, all of which I've greatly enjoyed so far. I'm sure you'll see me around, perhaps in one of your fics sometime.

    Bits and Pieces about You
    8. What’s your favourite non-SW movie/book? Well, that's... not an easy question for me to answer actually. I guess The Philadelphia Story for movie (the old 1940's movie, not the Tom Hanks one) since I've seen it well over a dozen times and am more than happy to keep watching it. For book... the Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks is seriously up there, In Conquest Born by C.S. Friedman is up there as well as her Magister Trilogy, and the Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson. I think it'd have to be between one of those, though trying to actually pick... sorry. No can do.
    9. What sort of music do you like? Varies by mood, but anything but hip hop, heavy metal, rap, or country, but there are exceptions to all of those.
    10. What hobbies do you have besides fanfic? Chess, reading, writing, playing videogames, being a husband, listening to music, church related things... i think that about covers it.
    11. What’s your favourite food? Your favourite drink? Your favourite guilty pleasure? Not sure I have one anymore, Dr. Pepper, and nothing I can think of.
    12. Are you a heavy TV watcher? Are you a frequent theatre or movie-goer? Not really, haven't watched a TV show regularly in years. I do like movies a fair amount though, and never lived anywhere I could go see the theater very often though I've been in three plays.
    13. Do you like art? Museums? Travelling? Anything else? Given that my dad has a masters in fine art I grew up with art, I love museums when I have the time, and traveling is good... just very infrequent.
    14. Do you have a favorite quote? I'm so allergic to death it would kill me. (Me) Well, that was a thing. (Raocow), God does not play dice with the universe. (Einstein) Man is the only animal that can blush, or needs to. (Twain)
    15. Tell is a fun fact about yourself! Oh goodness... I'm triple jointed in my wrists and hands?

    Star Wars Preferences
    16. Are you a SW movie person or an Expanded Universe person? Both.
    17. Are you a SW Legends person or a SW New Canon person? Both.
    18. What’s your favourite SW movie/book/comic/game? Shadows of the Empire, the Han Solo Trilogy and the Brian Daly books, KOTOR Comics, Dawn of the Jedi (All of it! Seriously, go read it!), Lost tribe of the Sith (all of it), Bounty Hunter wars, KOTOR II... movies are all pretty even for me though.
    19. Who’s your favourite SW character/‘ship?Han Solo and Darth Vader. Millennium Falcon... because I honestly don't have one of the other kind.

    Fanfic Reading and Writing Preferences
    20. Romance, adventure, drama, humour or something else? Whatever I get an idea for really, I've done pretty much all of it at one point or another. As for reading, just depends on what I'm in the mood for, but again, I've read some of everything over the years.
    21. Long stories, short stories, poems, songfics or something else? Long and short, not really into poems or songfics. As for reading, if it's good I'll read it.
    22. Before, Saga or Beyond? All of the above. See the previous sentence.
    23. Canon, Legends, AU, crossover? All of the above. See the previous sentence.
    24. Canon/Legends characters or original characters? Any particular favourites you’d like to mention? I miss Talon Karrde, and old the old Fab Four in the x-wing books. Also Piggy. Was always very fascinated by Jorj Car'das as well. As for OC's I've only got one over here by the name of Teafa Phaidraig, though I'm pretty sure that's going to change as things move forward given how much I'm involved in the RPF.
    25. What type of fic wouldn’t you read/write? Slash fic is honestly about it, though I tend to avoid things that are too graphic most of the time. Goes for writing and reading.
    26. Do you read/write other fandoms or original fiction? Yes, I do. I'm currently working on an original world with a co-author that we're hoping to get published, and I've written the joker some. I'm tempted to branch out into other things, but right now I have too many ideas for SWs to really have the time for more what with the original stuff going on as well.

    JCF Questions
    27. What brought you to the JCF? To the Fanfic boards? I'd been a SWs fan for most of my life and just stumbled across it on June of 2005, instantly joined because it seemed like a cool idea (that's my original account), for my current one, basketball funnily enough considering I don't even post in that thread anymore. As for fanfic, well that started with the RPF actually, and then I wrote a really, really bad story for an OC and I had fun, so I kept coming back for a few years. After a long break from writing in general, I just started missing it and got back involved in the RPF since I didn't feel like I could manage something like this, and found that I had more that I wanted to write and stories I wanted to tell that simply didn't fit in the scope of an RPG.
    28. Do you visit Fanfic Resource often? If yes, what are your favourite threads? Several times a day. Don't really have a favorite, just looking to see what people are saying and so forth.
    29. Do you venture out of the Fan Fiction boards to other JC forums? If so, which ones? EUC, and the RPF. that's about it for me.

    30. Anything else we should know about you? I'm 31 years old and very happily married, been a Star Wars fan since I was eight thanks to my Grandfather, and I'm looking to get better as a writer.

    Fanfic Reading and Writing Preferences
    20. Romance, adventure, drama, humour or something else? *laughs - I have more preferences to dictate what I won't finish reading than to which genre or theme I will read.

    22. Before, Saga or Beyond? Before.

    26. Do you read/write other fandoms or original fiction? Yep.

    Bits and Pieces about You
    8. What’s your favourite non-SW movie/book?

    Atlantis: The Lost Empire or Treasure Planet

    9. What sort of music do you like?

    Mostly soundtracks from films, games, and tv, though that encompasses quite an array of genres

    10. What hobbies do you have besides fanfic?

    Nature walks in the countryside once a week, like to play videogames, do Zumbo and Aqua Fit to keep fit in the week.

    11. What’s your favourite food? Your favourite drink? Your favourite guilty pleasure?

    Fave Food: Pizza

    Fave Drink: Blackcurrant Juice

    12. Are you a heavy TV watcher? Are you a frequent theatre or movie-goer?

    I don't go out to the cinema very often (only been once so far this year, to see Endgame), but I watch plenty of tv in my spare time.

    13. Do you like art? Museums? Travelling? Anything else?

    Love a good museum, last one I went to was the Ashmolean gallery in Oxford. And travelling's great too, I've made numerous visits to Switzerland and Italy, and in 1 week I'm going to France with my family.

    14. Do you have a favourite quote?

    See my sig :)

    15. Tell is a fun fact about yourself!

    Uh, my name comes from Sonic the Hedgehog? ;)

    Star Wars Preferences
    16. Are you a SW movie person or an Expanded Universe person?

    Movies and tv primarily, though I've read a couple of novels and 1 comic (Son of Dathomir).

    17. Are you a SW Legends person or a SW New Canon person?

    Both I guess, basically in my mind I just blend any SW media I like into on coherent hole, trying to paper over the cracks. So far that's worked out :p

    Movie: TPM
    Book: Darth Plagueis
    Game: The Force Unleashed

    19. Who’s your favourite SW character/‘ship?

    Maul or Ahsoka are probably my fave characters, as for ships... not sure I ship any SW characters that much.

    Fanfic Reading and Writing Preferences
    20. Romance, adventure, drama, humour or something else?

    I do seem to be a big sucker for romance if I'm invested in the ship ;) Of the fics I've read, most of been highly dramatic, with sprinklings of comedy. I sometimes long for more action at times though, what I read tends towards the small scale.

    21. Long stories, short stories, poems, songfics or something else?

    Depends, sometimes I can invest in hundreds of thousands of words of a single fic, other times I only want small snippets. Not into songfics much, if Tolkien's anything to go by I'm not a big poetry fan either ;)

    22. Before, Saga or Beyond?

    Saga I'd say, that's where most of the juiciest plot stuff lies.

    23. Canon, Legends, AU, crossover?

    All's good for me, though I'm always a little wary of crossovers.

    24. Canon/Legends characters or original characters? Any particular favourites you’d like to mention?

    If I did write an SW fic, I wouldn't mind trying something clone focused, or maybe from the bounty hunter underworld, but it's hard to pick any specifics.

    25. What type of fic wouldn’t you read/write?

    I don't really know what my limits on writing are yet, haven't really done enough to know that :p

    26. Do you read/write other fandoms or original fiction?

    I mainly write Gravity Falls based fanfic, something about that show has gotten into my head lately. I'm hoping to one day expand to other stuff though. As for reading, I'm open to most fics.

    For book series, my favourite of all time is the Timeriders series by Alex Scarrow. Second place would be The Long Earth, by Stephen Baxter and Terry Pratchett.

    JCF Questions
    27. What brought you to the JCF? To the Fanfic boards?

    TCW soundtracks brought me to the boards originally, around the time the OST came out and I wanted to help sort where the tracks played in the show. I've been to the fanfic boards a couple of times, my first online work is on here.

    28. Do you visit Fanfic Resource often? If yes, what are your favourite threads?

    I have visited occasionally, just to drop in and see if there's any topics I might have advice on. So far I haven't had my own queries to ask, but if I do, I'll drop in again ;)

    29. Do you venture out of the Fan Fiction boards to other JC forums? If so, which ones?

    I'm very active in the PT section, TV, and occasionally new films.

    Other
    30. Anything else we should know about you?

    I'm currently 23 chapters deep into a second 'season' of a Gravity Falls fic, it's nearing the conclusion, and I'm looking forward to slowly publishing it once I'm done (first time around I had no set schedule and just published as soon as a chapter was finished).

    I posted the first chapter of Season 1 here on the JCF, then the rest on AO3.

    1. Hello, my (user) name is _CaraJinn (but Cara will do fine unless someone else has that nick)_ and I’m a fanficcer.
    2. Do you use other handles/socks on the JCF? I guess no? But I'm not sure as I've never caught the "socks" concept - my language skills are totally failing me.
    3. When should we wish you a happy birthday? Please don't, I'm too old
    4. Which country are you from? Norway
    5. What languages do you speak? Norwegian and English, and if I have to I can make myself understood in German.
    6. What do you do in RL? I'm an Engineer
    7. Are you a writer, a reader or a lurker? A combination thereof? A writer and a chatter. I would have read more but I find the forum format rather stressful to read in, so I prefer reading from FF.net or Archive on our Own

    Bits and Pieces about You
    8. What’s your favourite non-SW movie/book? Hard to say, there are so many. I believe my absolute favorite was a small children's book called "Cat with nine lives" - it was written from an I perspective and both amusing and sad at the same time. From more normal readings I've read Alexandre Dumas' "The Three Musketeers" numerous times. "Watership Down" is also wonderful. Bah - I just love to read.
    9. What sort of music do you like? I'm not much into music, but if I have to: Country Music. Waylon Jennings is (was) my ultimate favourite.
    10. What hobbies do you have besides fanfic? Right now - none. But I hope to kick myself out of the door and start jogging again. Meanwhile I try to make some hiking. I do knit and make embroideries though, does it count?
    11. What’s your favourite food? Your favourite drink? Your favourite guilty pleasure? Food: Norwegian dish called "fårikål" (lamb and cabbage - way better than it sounds). Drink: Coca Cola. Guilty pleasure: also Coca Cola. I try to drink mostly water in the weekdays.
    12. Are you a heavy TV watcher? Are you a frequent theatre or movie-goer? No, no and no
    13. Do you like art? Museums? Travelling? Anything else? Not particularly, no. I'm more of a "staying at home" type.
    14. Do you have a favourite quote? No, not really. They vary all the time.
    15. Tell is a fun fact about yourself! I'm a rather enthusiastic hammocker.

    Star Wars Preferences
    16. Are you a SW movie person or an Expanded Universe person? Mostly EU, though it all began with the movies...
    17. Are you a SW Legends person or a SW New Canon person? Legends. I think. I always fail when trying to find what is what.
    18. What’s your favourite SW movie/book/comic/game? Karen Miller's "Wild Space" has a good score on my list.
    19. Who’s your favourite SW character/‘ship? Obi-Wan Kenobi (who else?)

    Fanfic Reading and Writing Preferences
    20. Romance, adventure, drama, humour or something else? Humor and/or adventure.
    21. Long stories, short stories, poems, songfics or something else? Medium... (in the range 10K to 20 K)
    22. Before, Saga or Beyond? Before
    23. Canon, Legends, AU, crossover? Legends, but I add more AU than I really want to.
    24. Canon/Legends characters or original characters? Any particular favourites you’d like to mention? Canon/Legend
    25. What type of fic wouldn’t you read/write? I could never write torture scenes or scenes with sexual contents, and I try to avoid reading them too.
    26. Do you read/write other fandoms or original fiction? No

    JCF Questions
    27. What brought you to the JCF? To the Fanfic boards? Pure coincidence. I was searching for fanfics (yes, it's true) and found the forum.
    28. Do you visit Fanfic Resource often? If yes, what are your favourite threads? A couple of times a week, mostly in chat tread and posted stories.
    29. Do you venture out of the Fan Fiction boards to other JC forums? If so, which ones? No
