    Welcome everybody, to my second attempt at the Fanfic Olympics.

    This year's featured pairing is Mace Windu, alias Lance Stormbreaker, and my OC Claire Moonstep.

    The pairing was introduced in a set of drabbles from my UDC thread. It's required reading to understand what's going on here, but it shouldn't take very long, because hey, they're drabbles.

    Here goes nothing, and I hope you enjoy.

    Wow, that is FASCINATING! All these years I've been around and I've never read a Mace Windu-centric romance. Coolness! =D=

    Got To Get Out Of This Place

    Author's Note: This is a continuation of the conversation from "Name".

    ----------

    "I thank you for your kindness, but I can't stay here. They will be looking for me, and anyone found helping me will be in great danger. I will need to get off this planet."

    "Oh, I know that, Sugar. But you in some luck, 'cause you just fell into a ready made escape, so don't you worry yo' head now. See them boxes? Half them was his, meanin' they's yours now. My nephew gots hisself a ship, and come mornin' he'll be helpin' load them boxes of ours aboard The Runaround. And considering that hellacious fall you took, time they wonder how dead you is, we'll be long gone."

    Glad you like it. I wondered as I was writing whether it might come off as a pretty big coincidence, but then again, I've heard it said that the Force doesn't do coincidences.

    I just love the idea that Mace survived. That is an amazing thing all on it's own. =D=

    I read somewhere that Samuel L. Jackson said concerning his role as Mace Windu, "Just don't make me go out like a punk." Well, his canon death may have been non-punk enough to satisfy SLJ, but it wasn't very satisfying to me, so I decided to fix that by letting him live.

    This is so unique, and like @JediMaster_Jen I love the idea of Mace surviving! I also just read the drabble set that goes with this, and I love that too. Fantastic start! =D=

    Oh this is awesome! I remember those bits in your drabble thread, and this is even better. I just love Claire's dialect, and I love the fact that, by making this a continuation to "Name", you're giving the 110-Word Hurdle prompt an extra dimension. Plus, as the ladies said above, Mace surviving just, well has to happen! I'll be watching this thread with great interest.

    Thanks, Chyn. I love Claire too. She's such a sweetheart. And Mace is a good guy. He totally deserves a chance to survive and be happy.

    Killing off Mace was a very stupid thing SW did considering someone like Maul (and freakin' Palpy for crying out loud) survived so I'm glad he's happy here! And yes, he deserves a romantic interest, why not? Looking forward to more!

    Author's Note: His thoughts when he first sees Claire.
    ----------------

    Backlit as she was by one streetlamp, while another illuminated her face, she appeared to glow, and her Force presence, though small, shone warm and bright and pure, and for a moment he almost thought she was an angel, or he would have, had he not once seen one of the Diathim of Iego.

    Thanks everybody. Since I did name the thread "Love Is All You Need", I figured I may as well stick with the British Invasion theme for the titles. :D

    You do not only have a funny side, but can be very lyrical.
