    Biography: Warning:Spoilers through Legacy of the Force: Fury

    This was the name given to the son of Luke Skywalker and his wife, Mara Jade Skywalker, born shortly after the Battle of Duro. Named to honor the memory of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ben was born aboard the converted Star Destroyer Errant Venture, during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. He was separated from his parents shortly afterward, both to protect him and allow them to fight against the alien invaders. Ben was taken in by his aunt and uncle, Leia Organa Solo and her husband, Han, and brought up on Coruscant.

    [image=http://images.wikia.com/starwars/images/9/99/Lukemaraben.jpg]

    When the Yuuzhan Vong launched their attack on Coruscant, Ben was in Leia's custody as the Solo family made its way to the Millennium Falcon. However, the intervention of Viqi Shesh forced Leia to turn Ben over to C-3PO, who was whisked aboard the Byrt instead of remaining with the Solos. Ben was then kept in several secure locations for the rest of the war against the Yuuzhan Vong, and Mara feared that this period of separation from his parents led to severe anxiety in young Ben. She found it increasingly difficult to locate him through the Force, and both Mara and Luke realized that Ben had started equating the use of the Force to the warfare and bloodshed of the conflict.

    Thus, despite having an exceptionally strong connection to the Force, Ben unconsciously shut it off. He didn't want to touch the Force, for fear that it might bring more bad things into his life. With the defeat of the Yuuzhan Vong, Luke and Mara resolved to spend more time with Ben, but the rigors of leading the new Jedi order continued to keep them apart. Luke and Mara acquired a Defender Droid to keep watch over Ben, but he found Nanna's presence infuriating. In several conversations, Ben admitted that he wanted to be more like his uncle, Han Solo: working on his own and doing things the hard way.

    During the initial stages of the conflict with the Colony, Ben unknowingly befriended the first assassin bugs of the Gorog hive, unaware that he was putting his mother in danger. His relationship with the assassin bugs gave him a connection to the Gorog hive, although he was not considered as fully immersed as a true Joiner. It was during this time that Luke and Mara discovered that Ben opened up more whenever he was around his cousin, Jacen Solo, and asked Jacen to take Ben under his wing. Jacen agreed, but was careful not to call Ben an apprentice, since the youth continued to ignore the callings of the Force. However, over time, Ben began to tentatively touch the Force, and his connection was strengthened with Jacen's help.

    As a Padawan, Ben adopted the ancient tradition of growing a single braid of hair to indicate his status, despite the fact that this was not required by the modern Jedi Order. He displayed an uncanny ability to remember things that he had seen or heard with incredible accuracy.

    It was not long before the raw power that was within Ben often bubbled to the surface, as when Jacen traveled to Hapes to see Tenel Ka. They found themselves in the midst of a Gorog assassination attempt on the lifes of Tenel Ka's infant daughter - of which Jacen was the father. His connection to the Gorog became evident when he was able to accurately locate the killer bugs in the ceiling and hidden escape tunnels, which helped them escape from the Gorog and confront Ta'a Chume. Ben's connection to the Gorog was not as deep as that of Jacen's sister, Jaina, which prevented him from becoming a true Joiner.

    In the wake of the struggle against UnuThul and the Colony, Ben continued to train as a Jedi under Jacen's tutelage. When he was thirteen, he accompanied Jacen on an investigation of the Dammant Killers w

    [hl=indigo]July Challenge[/hl]

    We're all reeling from the horrors Sacrifice wrought, and the death it revealed.
    But none of us, perhaps, so much as Ben Skywalker. Once it fully sinks in, how does Ben carry on? How does he go about normal life?
    The challenge is to write Ben soon after Mara's death.

    Must include:
    Han & Leia

    Must include the words:
    bland
    tomfoolery
    omission

    [hl=deeppink]April Challenge[/hl]

    Have Ben and a girl of your choosing, switch bodies for a day. There are no restrictions, just have fun.

    (No submissions) Be the first to write a response for this challenge!


    [hl=teal]January Challenge[/hl]

    Take a non-Star Wars book and write down the first line on every ten pages (pg 10, 20, 30...) until you reach 10 lines. Then write a drabble based on each one. (It doesn't have to be exacly 100 words... just keep it very short.) Try not to use the line in the context that the book uses.... give it your own!

    Now if some of the first lines wouldn't work due things that don't apply to the SW universe you can move on to the next line on that page that does work. For example on pg 10 of The Killer Angels the line is Sorrel started to say something, but he knew that you did not argue with Longstreet.
    This has names of people that don't apply in the SW universe so you would move on to the next line that would apply.

    Also if there is a line that isn't inspiring in the least (Ex: pg 30 of The Gun Seller I turned and looked at him.) then you could move on to the next one.

    Use your best judgement as to when you would need to move on to another line, but don't move on just because you don't like it, it wouldn't be a challenge if you did! ;)

    For bonus points try to make all you drabbles fit into one big drabble story.

    Make sure to include what book you used, its author and before each drabble the line that was used.

    Please post all drabbles at the same time, in the same thread. And as always, post a link here!

    (This challenge has be brought to you by the House fandom, since that was where the idea came from! :) )

    [hl=red]December Challenge[/hl]

    Okay, this challenge is purely a selfish one. Also to gain more interest in Ben. It's the Holiday present to LegacyChild. So here's the challenge. Write as many Ben Skywalker fics you can in the month of December. Hopefully, you'll get to do all the challenges you wanted to do within the last year but missed out on. If the bunny doesn't nibble, them anything you can think of.

    The only requisites are:

    It has to be at least 500 words.
    Number each of your entrees in the title. (Again, we're definitely trying to spark interest in Ben again.)

    That's it. Now get out there and write.

The song to go with it is by Relient K ? it?s called Mood Rings. Hence the title of fic (although that could change ? it?s just a placeholder until I think of something better). This is a short story consisting of several parts. It's also an attempt at humor. It will get funny. If it doesn't, I shall yell at it and make it turn funny.

    Mara died just moments after Ben was born, leaving Luke alone to raise the newest heir to the Skywalker legacy.

    What happens when years later father and son are at odds over Luke's new wife?

    JediMaster_Jen
    Future-fic: Ben has spent the past thirteen years learning about the Force from his cousin Jacen. Now, at just twenty-one years old, Ben must challenge his teacher after Jacen embraces the dark side. At stake--galactic peace, the Jedi Order, and most importantly.......Jacen Solo's soul.

    SilSolo
    Ben goes over to teh dark side and collaborates with Allana to create a Sith/Hapan Empire. When Allana's cousin, the second Anakin Solo, refuses to go along with teh plot, Ben chops of the rebel's hands in a duel and turns the last Solo over to his side. It takes ten years to establish teh Skywalker/Solo/Djo dynasty and in the meantime, Ben is faced with teh difficult task of raising his two daughters to be the assassins their grandmother once was and at teh same time train one of them to take his place.

    JediMaster_Jen

    These bunnies are running rampant in my head. I just have to let them out.

    Anyway, I was writing a Ben fic while watching The Phantom Menace and it came to me:


    Ben gets thrown into the past and meets Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan Kenobi and of course, his future grandparents, Anakin and Padme. Telling them he is a Corellian Jedi, and calling himself Ben Solo, he accompanies the group back to Naboo to battle the forces of the Trade Federation, and Darth Maul.

    Rather than just Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon fighting Maul, Ben is there as well. Between the three of them, Maul is defeated, with Ben striking the killing blow, and Qui-Gon survives to train Anakin.

    Right after Ben kills Maul, he mysteriously disappears. Unknown to the others, the Force has sent Ben back to his own time, believing that it has succeeded in changing Anakin's ultimate destiny by having Qui-Gon survive to train him.

    But was it enough? When events unfold the same as before, the Force once again sends Ben back in time, this time to the Jedi Temple where he intercepts Anakin as he's leaving to follow Mace Windu to the Chancellor's office.

    Unsuccessful in getting Anakin to stay behind, Ben goes with his grandfather, hoping to be the voice of reason when Anakin must make his ultimate choice.

    In the end, Ben succeeds in keeping Anakin from choosing the darkness by revealing to him that he is his grandson, the son of the child Padme carries within her. Palpatine launches an attack at Ben, and acting on instinct, Anakin leaps to the defense of his grandson, ultimately slaying Palpatine and fulfilling the prophesy and lifting the veil of the dark side.

    But Anakin's success means dire consequences for Ben Skywalker. After meeting his grandmother, he and Anakin are talking when Ben once again simply vanishes. Only this time, he hasn't gone back to his own time period---he's become non-existant.

    By changing the past, Ben has eliminated his own future. But he's left a blank canvas for his grandparents with which to carve their future--with their twin children.

    Hello Ben fans!! *waves* Long time no see!

    There has been a lot going on regarding Ben and we've been neglecting him. :(
    I think he may be sad! :p


    A few quick questions relating to the thread...

    Is anyone still interested in doing challenges? We've had some great responses in the past (see the first page :) ) and we would love to continue them if you are interested! We've got a bunch in mind and would love to see what you all can come up with!

    Is there anything you would like to see in this thread? There are a bunch of ideas in other character threads... anything you would like us to "borrow"? :p Any original ideas?

    If you have any ideas for discussion, a challenge or anything related to Ben and/or this thread feel free to tell us! We would love to hear from you all!



    And now for something completely different...

    Discussion:

    We all know that Ben was tortured by Jacen.. er, Darth Caedus in Infero, but how do you think Ben came out of it? Did he make an irreparable slide towards the dark side? Did he become stronger? Wiser? Will he use it like Jacen whose torture at the hands of Vergere made everyone sees him as stronger and wiser but inside he is tainted and dark?

    I'm digging it. Looks all sparky glowy and pretty.:D

    AS to the discussion question, since I am not actually READING the profic for a while ([face_not_talking]still mad), I can only toss out what I know so far about Ben.

    He feels things (emotionally) intensely. He is loyal to his friends. He loves his family, even if he doesn't agree with them. He is remarkably mature for a teenager.

    So, having said that, I would think that even though Jadeus tortured Ben, it would not convert Ben to Jacen's side. In fact, I think it would do the opposite. Jacen's turn in the Embrace was done by his enemy, so you might even assign some kind of eventual Stockholm syndrome effect as to why it turned Jacen bad. But to have it done to you by someone you once admired and loved, I think that would be the "deal breaker" with Jacen.

    Like I said, I haven't actually read that book, so this is supposition. Besides, I wanted to see this pretty new thread get some business.

    My nose is stuffed up... does the thread kinda have new car smell?? I love new car smell!! :p


    I don't blame you diva... I'm still mad too!

    He feels things (emotionally) intensely. He is loyal to his friends. He loves his family, even if he doesn't agree with them. He is remarkably mature for a teenager.
    I agree with everything here! The only thing I'm really afraid of is that he wants revenge for his mothers death, and he knows who did it. While he is very mature for a teenager he is still a teenage boy with emotions and hormones flying all over the place. The really bad thing about that is that he is a teenager with a very dangerous weapon.

    I don't think he would ever join Jacen now, but I do fear that the writers will push him to the edge, wanting revenge. :(

    But what can I say, I may just be paranoid!

    I don't think you are paranoid, mavjade. These writers, they love the dark side. I think it's a conspiracy. The only people who are hired to write the books are the ones who are secretly Sith Lords...[face_skull]

    And what's the the continual lack of Ben Skywalker icons?? Even with him being on the cover of Fury, we still only have the one icon. *taps foot* I want answers. [face_not_talking]

    LOL, Meredith! They very well maybe Sith! :p

    I was just thinking the exact same thing about the icons, not five minutes ago!! We've been begging for more Ben icons for a long time!! [face_frustrated]

    Not that they got him right on the cover... he has red hair, not blond!!! And it was in one of the books, not just a fan thing!!! (Sorry that just angers me!)

    I KNOW!!! It must've just been a miscommunication with the illustrator. I know of a whole series of books where the character on the cover has a different color of eyes on each one, when he's supposed ot have brown. o_O

    Except, in The Essential Guide to the Force there's a picture of him ((the picture's in the Resource ^^^)) and again, blonde hair. :rolleyes: Not cool.

    I still don't know why in the pics they're making his hair blonde. Isn't he supposed to be a red head? What are they trying to make him look like Anakin Solo or something?
