Titles: Midday Darkness // The Light is Me, I Am the Light Author: Ewok Poet Characters: Dyeke, Roula, many other OCs Rating: PG-13 Genre: Biography/autobiography Canonicity: Strongly leaning towards the new canon, despite utilising some Legends bits Length: Eleven chapters per book, twelve if you count forewords. Summary: Dyeke, a Drall painter from Sacorria, was a cult favourite of Corellian Sector's art miglieu, as well as many other art connoisseurs across the Galaxy. Now, what was his life actually like? These two books take turns at exploring it... This story should progress to Saga-PT at some point. I don't know how to deal with this before we're allowed to double tag or whatever. Updated monthly - ideally, close to the end of the month. There's plenty of time to catch up with each chapter, and the overall pair of companion books. A/N: This was supposed to be my entry for the Fifty Titles in Search of a Story challenge. I got the title #7, Darkness at Noon, borrowed from Arthur Koestler. I originally conceived my challenge response as a companion piece to one of my other stories, hence the eventual biography having a very similar name to Koestler's book. However, during the month of January, my idea evolved into something completely different - telling two different stories at the same time, accompanied by bits and pieces of "lost material", letters and sketches. One of these pieces remains inspired by the challenge, while the other is a new, new thing. Both of these pieces would are telling the life story of the same character - one as his alleged biography and the other as his alleged autobiography. Therefore, I had to do what I had to do and abandon the challenge, in order not to disrupt and disrespect the original idea. Moreover, I did not want to limit my creativity for the sake of adapting to a more conventional structure. Still, I am grateful for the challenge, because it sparked this unusual idea in me. Important All my fics take place in a shared micro-universe that does not contradict anything that happens before the Sequel Trilogy and is therefore canon-compliant. If you have not read anything I have written before, you're more than welcome to, though it's not obligatory. Ask whatever you want to know - I will be happy to help! And flattered that you're interested!

Maybe later. Concrit welcome, as long as it's not a personal grudge. I have to learn. I will be adding additional thoughts and ideas about the entire concept to this very post as I go, and an eventual study of it once it's finished.
