    Hello JCF FanFic!

    It’s that time of year again! We are excited to welcome you to the Jedi Council Forums’ fifth annual Favorites of FanFic Festival! [face_party]

    Since 2018, the Festival has been an opportunity for us to recognize and celebrate the great fanfic written by members of our community, and we can’t wait to get the festivities underway. We have several exciting changes to announce this year, so whether or not this is your first time participating, we strongly encourage you to read through all of the rules and categories listed below… and have fun! ;)

    A couple of notes before we get started:

    Your Festival hosts this year are: @amidalachick, @Kahara, @UltramassiveUbersue, and @ViariSkywalker. Feel free to write to any of us with questions or comments about what you see here!

    Unlike previous festivals, this year we’re going to hit the ground running. That’s right, the FoF Festival begins TODAY, which means once you’ve read through the rules, you can start posting your nominations! :eek: [face_dancing]

    Did we blow your minds a little? Is this all happening kind of fast? Don’t worry; just read the rules carefully, take a deep breath, and dive in. It’s going to be great. :D

    Many thanks, and enjoy the celebration!
    @amidalachick, @Kahara, @UltramassiveUbersue, and @ViariSkywalker

    A great big thank you to @Raissa Baiard for lending her artistic talent to the Festival, and to our lovely mod team (@devilinthedetails, @Findswoman, and @Mira_Jade) for being awesome and paving the way for us! [face_love] [:D]




    How the Festival Works

    Below you will find a list of all the categories included in the Favorites of FanFic Festival. Starting today, we will post one group of categories every Sunday. You can then either post the stories that were your favorites for the given categories that week, or if you’d like to remain anonymous, you may PM us (@The Golden Yoda) with your story nominations and we will post a batch of them at the end of the week. The next week we will post the next group of categories, and so on until we reach the end. We will then create a master index of the 2022 Favorites of FanFic, which will remain stickied at the top of Resource for the rest of 2023.


    The Rules
    1. No submitting your own stories. Any funny business with socks will result in a ban.

    2. Stories must have been STARTED or UPDATED at least once between January 1st, 2022 (PST) and December 31st, 2022 (PST), for both SWFF and NSWFF.
      • Please note, this is a change from past festivals. Stories that were started before and continued in 2022 are indeed eligible for all applicable categories.

    3. You may submit (up to) TWO STAR WARS stories per category and TWO NON-STAR WARS stories per applicable category. Most categories work for both SWFF and NSWFF, but there are a few dedicated to their respective subforums (in the Character and Author categories).

    4. When you post for the categories, please post the category, the story title, author, and a link to the story. If it’s NSWFF, please include the fandom as well. You may post two stories under each category heading.

    5. Make-ups will run a little differently than they did last year. We will still have a make-up week at the end of the festival (Week 6), but due to our quick start this year, we will also allow people to post their make-ups throughout the festival. For the sake of keeping things relatively manageable, we ask that you try to post your make-ups as soon as possible after the week that you missed. This won’t be a hard and fast rule; use your best judgment, and try not to clutter the thread with excessive make-up posts. If you need to make-up several weeks, please consider waiting until Week 6, at the end of the festival.

    6. If you know in advance that you are not going to have time to post your favorites, you are more than welcome to PM us with your selections in advance, and we will be happy to post them with the PM submissions for the appropriate week.

    7. If you see a mistake in someone else's submitted stories – be it your own story or someone else's – please just let it go unless you strongly feel it's an attempt to circumvent the rules (e.g. you know for a fact it's a sock). We'll take care of any clear mistakes (e.g. blatantly wrong category, story not eligible) when we make the master list.

    Tips for finding eligible stories
    • If you are looking at the boards sorted by "last message" (which is the default), stories posted or updated in 2022 go back as far as page 13 as of February 12th. For NSWFF, stories posted or updated in 2022 go back to around page 3.
    • If you click on "start date" that is at the top of the story boards (in the list that says "Title, Start Date, Replies, Views, Last Message") it will sort the stories by newest start date to oldest. Stories posted in 2022 go back to around page 9 as of February 12th. For NSWFF, stories posted in 2022 go back to around page 3.
    • You can also filter by prefix by clicking directly on the prefix you want to see (Saga-PT, Saga-OT, Beyond, etc.). You can also search for specific authors in the search function. If you need any help with how to do any of these things, please contact us. We'll be more than happy to help.

    Important Note, Everyone Read This!

    Another change we’re testing out this year is combining the usual Festival Social & Question thread with the main Festival thread. What that means is that you will be allowed to socialize and ask questions right here in this thread, in addition to posting your nominations. And look, it’s very possible that this entire thread will descend into anarchy, but if it helps keep the festival fires burning for the whole six weeks, we’re willing to try it!

    2022 Favorites of FanFic Festival
    Categories & Schedule


    Week 1: Style & Length (February 12-18)
    Week 2: Characters & Relationships (February 19-25)
    Week 3: Genre & Canonicity (February 26-March 4)

    Week 5: Reviewer & Author (March 12-18)
    Week 6: Make-up Week (March 19-25)


    The Categories

    Week 1: Style & Length

    Favorite One-shot – A short story posted to the boards as a single entry (as a guideline, less than 5,000 words). This includes, but is not limited to, individual drabbles, poems, flash-fics, song-fics and vignettes.

    Favorite Short Story – A short story that can generally be read in one sitting but has been broken up into multiple parts (as a guideline, between 5,000 and 15,000 words).

    Favorite Multi-Chapter or Epic – A longer story that takes more than a few minutes to read (as a guideline, more than 15,000 words).

    Favorite Part of a Series – A story that was posted or updated in 2022 but that also was part of a larger body of a continual storyline (other parts of the story can be posted before 2021).

    Favorite WIP – A story that was started or continued, but not completed in 2022, and which may have been overlooked in favor of complete stories. (Note that a story may still be eligible for above categories if not completed as well, but this is specifically for ongoing stories). Must be a WIP as of February 12, 2023.


    Week 2: Characters & Relationships


    Favorite Interpretation of a Movie Character – The best/most faithful/most relevant portrayal in fanfic of any character that appears, however briefly, in any of the 11 SW movies (TPM, AotC, RotS, ANH, TESB, RotJ, TFA, TLJ, TRoS, Rogue One, and Solo).

    Favorite Interpretation of an EU Character or Game Character – The best/most faithful/most relevant portrayal in fanfic of any character that appears only in Expanded Universe material (New Canon or Legends, including the TV series) or any SW board or video game, or an RPG character. No movie characters are eligible under this category, however brief their appearance in the movies.

    Favorite NSWFF Canon Character – The best/most faithful/most relevant portrayal in fanfic of any character that appears, however briefly, in their respective media.

    Favorite Original Character – Your favorite portrayal of a character created by a fanfic author.

    Favorite Villain – A character that you love to hate, hate to love – or better yet, both! An antagonist character who just has that extra something.

    Most Wholesome Character – The character that you want to hug and feed cookies to. This can be a traditional epic hero or the star of a much smaller-scale fluff story, but they are a perfect cinnamon roll too good for this world/Galaxy and just seeing them "on screen" in the story brings you joy.

    Favorite Established Relationship – Any relationship (familial, friendship, romantic, rivalry, etc) between two Canon or Legends characters that is established or strongly implied in New Canon or Legends material.

    Favorite Original Relationship – Any relationship (familial, friendship, romantic, rivalry, etc) between OCs or between an established (from either New Canon or Legends) character and an OC. This also includes a relationship between two established characters that does not appear or is not strongly implied in Canon or Legends.


    Week 3: Genre & Canonicity

    Favorite Humor – A story which is comedic in nature by virtue of its characters, situations or dialogue, and whose intention is to provoke a reaction that may range from chuckles to ROFLs.

    Favorite Drama – A story that centers around a conflict that is neither physical nor romantic in nature. It may include the protagonist(s) addressing serious issues that impact them on a personal level, or it may be broader issues like a political-drama.

    Favorite Angst – A story dealing with sad or tragic topics meant to evoke melancholy emotions in it’s readers.

    Favorite Fluff
    – A story with little to no conflict or antagonistic intent, usually written to give the readers “warm fuzzy feelings” in their hearts.

    Favorite Romance – A story that centers around the protagonist discovering, exploring and/or developing a strong romantic emotional bond with another character.

    Favorite Action/Adventure – A story in which the characters overcome challenges by means of fast-paced, usually physical, adventurous activity.

    Favorite Genfic – A story where non-romantic, non-sexual relationships are central to the plot and there is little if any romance featured. For example, stories where a friendship, sibling relationship, mentorship, bitter lifelong enmity, etc., is the main focus would all count. Any romantic pairings featured are not the focus of the major characters’ development throughout the story and anything that happens on screen between said pairings is G-rated.

    Favorite World-Building – A story that adds to and/or explores some aspect of the world/universe it is set in with more depth than canon ever had the chance to explain. For example, a Star Wars story that fleshes out an existing planet, culture, or technology – or that introduces a new one in detail.

    Favorite Continuity Compliant – A story that does not diverge from or contradict the established storyline (New Canon or Legends) in which it is written. Stories that aren’t blatantly AU and aren’t defined as AU by the author in the opening post or the title bar can be assumed to be canon-compliant. (Note: this is the category that used to be called ‘Best Canon’ in previous years.)

    Favorite Alternate Universe – A story that diverges from or contradicts the established storyline (New Canon or Legends) in which it is written. This is usually, but not always, indicated by the author in the opening post or the title bar.


    Week 4: Fun Categories That Don’t Have a Catchy Group Name

    Story You Just Can't Stop Thinking About – A story that really stuck with you. Something so memorable that it needs no re-reading to bring back the impressions you had when first reading it.

    Unclassifiable Classic – A story that really doesn’t fit anywhere else, but that you think should have a moment of glory.

    Head-Canon Accepted! – Part of a story that is now part of the personal Star Wars (or NSWFF) universe in your mind. This can be a detail or storyline that is neither confirmed nor denied by official canon, or it can be an alternate universe “fix-it” that you prefer to what happened in canon. (Any canon – Disney, Legends, and all the plot holes in between.) Either way, a fact or event in a fic that is now canon in your heart.

    Favorite Title – It's the title that first caught your eye. You saw it and thought "I want to read that fic!" It's like a great cover on a book that draws you in!

    Favorite Line in a Fic – A sentence or two that were just perfectly phrased.

    Favorite Headsplode Moment – A moment that really and truly surprised you! To keep these moments a surprise for readers who haven't read them yet, please put your description of the moment itself in spoiler-quotes after the story and author, like this but with the spaces before and after both instances of the word "spoiler" removed:

    Story by Author
    [ spoiler ]Your description of that cool Headsplode Moment [/ spoiler ]

    So that you end up with:
    Story by Author
    Your description of that cool Headsplode Moment

    Favorite Action Scene – The action scene that you enjoyed the most: space battles, sparring matches, duels to the death, food fights – the works! The scene does not have to be from an adventure-focused story so long as the scene itself meets the requirements.

    Favorite “Finally” Moment – The moment between characters that you have been waiting for through the whole story. This can be romantic, fluffy, sad, humorous, or otherwise, but you were waiting for it and it was delivered with all the trimmings. So we don't break the suspense for first-time readers, please put your description of the moment itself in spoiler-quotes after the story and author, like this but with the spaces before and after both instances of the word "spoiler" removed:

    Story by Author
    [ spoiler ] Your description of that long-awaited Finally Moment [ /spoiler ]

    So that you end up with:
    Story by Author
    Your description of that long-awaited Finally Moment

    Crushed That Challenge – The most enjoyable, unexpected, and/or creative response to a challenge. The challenge itself can be from a previous year, as long as the response story itself was posted/updated in 2022.


    Week 5: Reviewer & Author

    Favorite Reviewers (choose up to 4) – Your favorite reviewers who leave the most thoughtful/in depth reviews on stories in any era of the Star Wars FanFic forums and/or in the Non-Star Wars FanFic sub-forum. *Though it isn’t at all required, including a little blurb about the reviewer is a welcome addition. (Ex: “Reviewer leaves wonderfully detailed comments/is a supportive regular/has great humor in their comments//has fantastic enthusiasm for the characters and era that I write or read in/whatever is especially awesome about their reviews here.”)

    Favorite Author in Before – The author whose work in Before (either Canon or Legends) consistently demonstrates a high degree of skill and creativity in their creation of memorable characters and settings, original plots, interesting themes, and overall depiction of the GFFA.

    Favorite Author in Saga – The author whose work in the PT and/or OT and/or ST (either Canon or Legends) consistently demonstrates a high degree of skill and creativity in their creation of memorable characters and settings, original plots, interesting themes, and overall depiction of the GFFA.

    Favorite Author in Beyond – The author whose work in Beyond (either Canon or Legends) consistently demonstrates a high degree of skill and creativity in their creation of memorable characters and settings, original plots, interesting themes, and overall depiction of the GFFA.

    Favorite Author in NSWFF – The author whose work in Non-Star Wars FanFic consistently demonstrates a high degree of skill and creativity in their creation of memorable characters and settings, original plots, interesting themes, and overall depiction of their chosen fandom(s).

    Favorite New Author– Your favorite author who posted his or her first story on the boards within the eligibility dates. This category is not era-specific.

    Most Versatile Author– The author whose work, in your opinion, tackles the widest range of aspects of writing fanfic (e.g. multiple eras, multiple genres, multiple writing techniques, etc.) This category is not era-specific.

    Favorite Story YOU Wrote- This is an exception to the rules. For this category, tell us YOUR favorite story that YOU wrote! To be eligible to submit in this category, you must have submitted at least one story or author nomination for one of the previous categories.


    Week 6: Make-ups


    If you missed nominating at some point, you can post make-ups for those categories at this time.

    2022 Favorites of FanFic Festival
    Week 1: Style & Length

    The red curtain rises on a brightly lit stage, overlooking an amphitheater filled with countless people of various species. ViariSkywalker emerges from backstage, wearing black leggings and boots and an oversized white shirt with a picture of the Millennium Falcon and the words “Cloud City” emblazoned in shades of purple on the back. She looks out at the crowd and takes a steadying breath…

    Hello, everyone! It’s my pleasure to welcome you to the 2022 Favorites of FanFic Festival! Thank you for joining us as we celebrate our favorite stories, authors, and reviewers of 2022! We’re starting off the first week of our Festival with the Style and Length categories. Let us know your favorites in each category by posting the category name, the story title, the author, and a link to the story. (For NSWFF, please also include the name of the fandom.) You may post two stories for Star Wars FanFic and two stories for Non-Star Wars FanFic under each category. If you prefer to submit your nominations anonymously, please send them via PM to @The Golden Yoda. The categories for this week are:

    Week 1: Style & Length
    • Favorite One-shot
    • Favorite Short Story
    • Favorite Multi-Chapter or Epic
    • Favorite Part of a Series
    • Favorite WIP

    After you’ve posted your favorites, feel free to hang around, grab some refreshments, and socialize with your fellow fanficcers! I hear we were lucky enough to get the Max Rebo Band for your entertainment—

    There’s a noise offstage; Vi glances over at a pair of dark-haired young men waiting impatiently in the wings. The shorter of the two can be seen gesturing toward the stage and mouthing something indecipherable. Vi frowns and whisper-shouts back at them

    What do you mean, “mishap”? No, Characters and Relationships is next week; I told you two to stop hanging around here and go back with the other OCs… Well, if Darth Maul dared you to jump off a moving hovertrain, would you do that, too? …Yeah, you’re right, that is a bad example…

    Vi clears her throat and smiles as she faces the crowd again.

    Sorry about that! We might have to wait a bit on Max, but in the meantime, please join me in saying thank you to our hardworking mods, @Mira_Jade, @Findswoman, and @devilinthedetails, as well as to my fellow volunteers, @amidalachick, @Kahara, and @UltramassiveUbersue, for making this event possible!

    And now, without any further ado…

    Let the Festival begin!

    Ooh, yay! The Favorites of Fanfic Festival is back for another year[face_party]

    As a mod, I would like to give a big thank you to @ViariSkywalker, @Kahara, @amidalachick, and @UltramassiveUbersue for hosting the Festival this year as well as a big thank you to @Raissa Baiard for providing the beautiful Festival art for us all to enjoy! You're all awesome[:D]

    Now taking off my "mod" hat and transitioning into "regular user" mode, I would like to nominate some stories in the Style and Length categories. To be clear, whenever I nominate stories, authors, or reviewers in any categories throughout this Festival I am doing so in an unofficial capacity as a "regular user" rather than in a formal role as "mod." So please interpret all my nominations throughout this Festival in that light:)

    With that caveat out of the way, I will get on with my nominations for the first Week[face_dancing]

    Favorite Oneshot:

    From a Flimsi Scrap Found on the Crystal Cliffs, Lira San by @Findswoman
    Mourning by @vader_incarnate
    Non Star Wars [Lord of the Rings/Rings of Power]: Table Talk by @brodiew
    Non Star Wars [Lord of the Rings/Rings of Power]: You don't know me, nor do I by @brodiew

    Favorite Short Story:

    Detours by @Thumper09
    Two Twins by @earlybird-obi-wan

    I look forward to seeing everyone else's nominations for this week:cool:

    The ushers at the entrance of the festival are a little nonplussed when a little girl turns up and addresses them in rapid-fire Greek, but thankfully her parents catch up with her soon enough. A few minutes later, the family have been issued badges that read 'Chyntuck', 'Chyntuquita' and 'Mr Chyntuckopoulos' and are allowed inside.

    "Aaaaah," Chyntuck lets out a long breath, "it's good to be back."

    Her husband gives her a wry look. "You know, I think they upgraded this shindig since your time. They don't need the sponsorship of Uncle Sheev's Hutt Smut Emporium anymore."

    Chyntuck waves her hand dismissively. "Times were hard. It was the financial crisis."

    Chyntuquita looks up at her father. She really has to crane her neck for that, because he's very tall and she's very tiny. "Papa, what's Hutt smut?"

    "Never mind," Mr Chyntuckopoulos answers hastily. "Look at all these people! You see the three ladies over there? One in pink, one with a cape and one who looks fantastically fiendish? That's the fanfic mods!"

    "And those four on the other side?" Chyntuck adds.

    The little girl pouts. She can't see a thing, the place is too crowded. Mr Chyntuckopoulos lifts her to sit on his shoulders. "Now I see them!" she squeaks excitedly. "There's one who looks like a painting, one who's carrying really strange things, one who has a winter landscape following her and... I dunno, the fourth one just left, she's chasing two boys who look a bit chaotic and evil. Who are they?"

    "They're the festival hostesses," Chyntuck explains. "And we should go and thank them all, because they and the mods are putting a lot of effort to –"

    "Papa, Papa, look!" Chyntuquita suddenly yelps. "There's Clone Force 99 over there! And Omega is with them!" She tugs at her father's ears to make him turn in the right direction. "Can we go and see her, Papa? Please, Papa? Please?"

    Being very attached to his ears, which his daughter is now threatening to tear off, Mr Chyntuckopoulos can only give his wife an apologetic look and get moving. Chyntuck remains alone in the middle of the crowd. She gives a one-shoulder shrug and pulls a scrap of paper from her bag.

    "Well, I didn't spend a lot of time on the boards in 2022, so I didn't read much," she tells no one in particular. "But of what little I've read, here are a few favourites."

    Favourite One-Shot: The Pawful Truth by @Seldes_Katne
    Favourite Epic: Interregnum II by @Bel505
    Favourite Part of a Series: The Funeral by @Gabri_Jade


    She turns around the scrap of paper to realise that it's blank on the other side and looks a bit disappointed with herself. "Yeah, it really isn't much," she mumbles. But then, she suddenly brightens up. "But hey! This is the Favourites of Fanfic Festival. Here's my chance to catch up on all my reading!"

    Hooray, festival time has come around once again! [face_dancing] And I have to say, you gals have done an amazing job getting everything organized and coming up with some really cool new categories! Thank you so much—this is going to be fun, for sure. :D

    Now I too am going to put on my “regular user” hat and echo @devilinthedetails ’s disclaimer: everything I post during this Festival of Favorites is just me speaking as a regular reader sharing stories and authors that I happened to particularly enjoy, and none of it is meant as any sort of official endorsement of any writer at the expense of any other writer. @};- (Also, if anyone’s curious, whenever I have two stories in a category—which I hope I’ll manage for most of them—I’ll always list them alphabetically by author’s name, so the order does not necessarily imply preference.)

    And here goes for week 1! :) EDITED to remove one story that turned out to not be eligible.

    I Ship It! by @Raissa Baiard

    Mira - wearing a black cape over a sparkling purple evening gown - waves at the adorable little girl speaking excitedly in Greek, and keeps the smile plastered to her face as she says from the side of her mouth: "Maul, what were the conditions for you being allowed to attend the festival this week?"

    "I was not to be chaotic or evil," Maul returns with a bored shrug of indifference. "However, seeing as those rules don't apply to everyone in attendance, I chose to alter our deal."

    Mira narrows her eyes, and sighs. "You're on a redemption arc; that means you should be setting an example for other potentially redeemable characters to follow."

    "Redemption? Only in your AU," Maul sniffs. "Even if I were to abide by your ridiculous rules, it is hardly my fault that the weak minded are so easily persuaded to -"

    Mira has to stand on her tiptoes in order to clap her hand over Maul's mouth, but she does so with as fierce a glower as she can muster and loudly speaks over him: "What's that? I quite agree with you! Our hosts - and their assistants - couldn't be doing a finer job with this year's Favorites of Fanfic! Let's give a round of applause to @amidalachick, @Kahara, @Raissa Baiard, @UltramassiveUbersue, and @ViariSkywalker!"

    "That is most certainly not what I said -"

    "Obi-Wan?" Mira calls, still ignoring Maul, "Would you like to help me share my favorites for this week? You too, Anakin - yes, you, Song!verse Anakin - not the other one," she shakes her head at Enter!verse Anakin, "and, um, definitely not you," she shudders for every version of Elli's Anakin and/or Vader lurking in the wings. "Sorry," she adds sheepishly, not wanting to hurt anyone's feelings.

    "You know," Anakin mutters as he comes onto the stage, "if you need us to, we can help you take out the trash - and I do mean all of the trash." He narrows his eyes at the two dark-haired young men still being scolded by that week's hostess.

    "You could try, Skywalker," Maul sneers. "Yet you would not succeed."

    "Not in this timeline, I'm afraid," Obi-Wan places a hand on Anakin's shoulder and turns him towards the crowd. "Come now, my friend. We have favorites to share."

    "Fine," Anakin rolls his eyes, but still hisses at Maul: "I'm watching you," before smiling out at the audience.

    Obi-Wan loudly starts reading from the card in his hand. "This year, Mira_Jade's favorites are as follows:

    Anakin finishes reading the last category and smirks at Maul. "See? That's how a redeemed AU iteration of a character does it."

    Maul bares his teeth, but before he can fire back a retort, Mira exclaims, "I know: let's get cake! Everyone loves cake, right? It's time to let the next festival-goer have a turn while we check out the dessert table."

    Determinedly, Mira tugs on Maul and Anakin and drags them away - muttering about telling Mara on them all the while.

    “I mean seriously, guys—” Vi stands with her arms crossed loosely in front of her, torn between exasperation and amusement. “—I think you can chill for one night.”

    Darth Festus quirks an eyebrow at her, a smirk poised on his lips. “One night? Isn’t this thing like five weeks long?”

    Six weeks, actually. And unless I say otherwise, you’re going to behave for all of them.”

    Darth Ferrus rolls his eyes and groans loudly. “Fine.” He grabs his brother by the arm and begins to pull him away. “Let’s go, idiot.”

    Vi heaves a small sigh of relief as she watches the Chaos Twins trudge off. There’s a cushy sofa backstage that she’s had her eye on since before the festivities began, and now that she has a break, it’d be nice to sit down and relax for a bit…

    The sofa, as it turns out, is already occupied. A middle-aged gentleman with a neatly-trimmed beard is sitting at one end, a saucer in one hand and a teacup in the other. Vi is a bit hesitant as she approaches him.

    “Hello,” she says, gesturing toward the open seat next to him. “Mind if I sit here?”

    “Not at all.” The man smiles back at her. “I’m Obi-Wan Kenobi.”

    “I’m Vi.” She catches a glimpse of Song!verse Obi-Wan returning from the stage. “Um… which Obi-Wan are you, if you don’t mind me asking?”

    “I believe I am what you would call ‘canon’.”

    “Like, New Canon or Legends?”

    He takes a sip of his tea, then answers serenely, “I suppose that all depends on your point of view.”

    “Yeah, that’s fair.” She takes a seat next to him and winces a little. “By the way, sorry about all the AUs where you’re… you know…”

    “Dead?” he answers with a wry smile. “Think nothing of it. I died in the first movie; I could hardly expect you to do any less.”

    Vi winces again. “Sorry.”

    Obi-Wan raises his teacup ever so slightly. “Would you care for a cup? It’s freshly brewed.”

    Vi sinks back into the cushions and pulls a notebook and pen out of her purse. “Thanks, I’d love some – but first I have to finish something up.” She begins to scribble in her notebook.

    “Are those your nominations?”

    “Hm?” Vi glances up from her notebook. “Oh no, this is my entry for the Kessel Run; I’m on a roll. My nominations are right here.”

    She hands Obi-Wan her cell phone, which he examines thoughtfully. “Am I alive in any of these?”

    “Um… yeah, you’re in two of these actually. Well, versions of you anyway…”

    Obi-Wan hands the phone back to Vi. “I suppose it would be an exercise in futility to ask you which of these stories I feature in?”

    She shrugs at him and smiles. “Guess you’ll just have to read them all.”

    Gabri steps to the edge of the stage, clad in a gown of emerald green velvet, and peeks around the edge of the curtain, eyeing the audience. “I am absolutely not doing this every week, I can tell you that much,” she mutters.

    To her side, Mara Jade raises an eyebrow. “Have nominations, or get dressed up?”

    “No, no,” Gabri says, waving vaguely. “I’m fine with both of those. But being in front of a crowd makes me twitchy, and I’m sure not writing an extra sketch every time.”

    “Excuse me?” Corissa Jade pipes up indignantly. “I, and by extension my entire family, am an unmitigated joy to write—”

    Nico Jade snorts. Corissa doesn’t even turn. “You be quiet. I’m making a point here.”

    “Make all the points you like,” Gabri tells her. “I’m already writing you guys every week for the Kessel Run. That’s plenty.”

    “That does seem fair, dear,” Nadira Jade says soothingly.

    Corissa huffs, then eyes the rest of the OCs. “Those two are kind of cute, I gotta say.”

    Ronan Jade glances over at the Chaos Twins, then back to his daughter. “Look, I hate to sound like a tired overprotective father cliché here, but no.”

    Nico rolls his eyes. “She’s got better taste than that, Dad. She’s just being obnoxious.”

    You’re being obnoxious,” Corissa retorts.

    Mara glares at Ferrus, who is now glancing Corissa’s way, and hisses, “You go ahead and try it. We’ll see who walks away.”

    Gabri looks heavenward and sighs. “See, this is why I’m not doing this every week. It always spirals. Vi’s got him under control, Mara, I promise you. Maybe you could just read the nominations?”

    Mara narrows her eyes at Ferrus and fingers her lightsaber. “Fine. But so much as one step toward my baby sister and I’ll take him to pieces.”

    “Wrong twin,” Gabri says. “But I’m sure he gets the idea.” She hands Mara the list of nominations and shoos the rest of the family fully behind the curtain again. “Come on, let’s go join Mira. She said there was cake.”

    Mara lifts the list, still side-eyeing Ferrus, and begins to read:

    In Kahara's case, this means she is sitting in an exceptionally comfy chair with a laser pointer (lightsaber-shaped of course) held in each hand, and watching three astromechs chase the glowing dots across the room.

    "Got 'em again, Artoo!"

    "Aww no, sorry BB! But better luck next time!"

    "WHAAAWoooOOBWOP!"

    "Wow. You talk to the Ghost with that processor?"

    "PLBBBBBbbbb!"

    "No, I'm not cheating -- hey, whoa!"

    Whilst climbing an artificial potted Ch'hala tree to get away from an irritable Chopper, Kahara drops her nominations for Week 1.

    "By the way, I'm also just adding these as a forum member. Oh and, could someone please tell Hera she's right and could she save me from her droid? Thanks, I appreciate it!"

    Elli, in a festive pantsuit, scampers in at the last moment and glances quickly over at the other attendees and their characters before glaring at her own entourage. She huffs a sigh, raising a hand to her forehead and massaging it gently. "I really brought this upon myself," she muses.

    "It's your own fault," a Luke Skywalker agrees. He's the most solid of the half dozen or so Luke Skywalkers in the group - and the only one without the golden Sith eyes. The others keep flickering in and out of existence: one who wears a bloody crown, one clad all in gold, one who keeps Vader's saber at his belt. "You keep returning to the same themes, and most of them happen to involve turning me -"

    He's interrupted by an insistent meow, and pausing, bends down to pick up a small black domestic house cat, who glares at Elli from his new perch. "Not all of them, though," he admits.

    Elli winces. "Yeah, I could probably find another character to work out my issues with."

    "Not to mention all the canon typical child murder," Luke says. "It's a little much."

    "Lucas started that! And -"

    "- and Andor continued it, but that doesn't mean you have to keep it going!"

    The cat doesn't say anything, but his continued glare speaks volumes, and Elli winces again. "Fair," she concedes.

    Luke grins winningly. "That doesn't mean I don't want to see how you write me out of all these fine messes you've put me in, of course. I think even Father will agree with that," he adds, and runs a hand through the cat's soft fur.

    The cat preens, settling himself more comfortably in Luke's arms.

    Elli stares hesitantly at the cat a little longer, debating whether or not to reach out a hand to pet him - before deciding not to chance it and whipping out a phone instead. "We better wrap this up before the cat changes his mind about murdering me by twitching a brain cell."

    Luke shrugs. "Maybe he can go hang out with the happy AU Anakins from Song!verse and Enter!verse. They have a lot in common. They can process their childhood traumas together."

    "You can't just ask your happy AU dads to catsit your AU cat dad, Luke. And more importantly, you can't just casually drop off a Sith cat on some unwitting Jedi catsitters without causing chaos that would utterly wreck the festival vibe."

    "It wouldn't be cat sitting! It'd be more like ... a playdate! And he's an ex-Sith cat!"

    The cat hisses menacingly towards one of the other, flickering Lukes and lashes out a clawed paw almost faster than the eye can track.

    "Mostly."

    Week 2: Characters & Relationships

    There has been a kerfuffle to the side of the stage. An astromech blatts irritably, followed by the crash of an unfortunate host tripping over them.

    Just a minute!

    After a brief wait, Kahara walks
    very carefully to the podium in her fluffy lavender-and-gold winter outfit with comfy boots and smiles.

    It's phenomenal to see so many of you here; we're so glad you could make it from across the Galaxy. Since this week is all about the characters and relationships from the last year's stories, it only made sense to give the presentation of categories to everyone's favorite couple from Legends --

    The curtain draws back to reveal Lando and Mara embracing passionately.

    "Hey." Mara waves, and goes back to kissing Lando.

    Kahara looks baffled.

    This is.. huh?

    "This is totally canon," Lando informs her.

    "But Mara said..."

    Mara shrugs at Kahara's beseeching look.

    "I say a lot of things to keep the publishers happy."

    The host nods sympathetically, then looks very uncomfortable as a thought occurs to her. She turns to look for the very kind fellow who helped her with a Force-healing of her turned ankle.

    Umm. Luke, are you seeing this? Where--

    The stage-lighting droids focus in on Luke in the back row of the amphitheater necking with an OC.

    Kahara clutches the mike (and her Calamarian sea pearls).


    ... And who are you exactly?

    "I'm his rebound, but I'm cool with that." The OC waves cheerily at the host and crowd.

    "Rebound from Callista, right?" The host blinks a few times, but everything fails to go away.

    "You guessed it," Luke confirms. "I still can't believe she ran off with Han!"

    Leia pipes up from the audience, where she is holding hands with Thrawn.

    "The signs were there."


    "Oh, oooookay, erm, let's just bring that light back to the stage, shall we?" Kahara has given up on tracking the threads of canonicity and AU-versity by now and just waves to all the couples with a smile.

    "You know what, I have to feed my tookas -- gotta run!" The host leaves Mara and Lando holding the envelope of categories and makes good on her escape.

    As with last week, your nominations just need the category name, the story title, the author, and a link to the story*. (For NSWFF, please also include the name of the fandom.) You may post two stories for Star Wars FanFic and two stories for Non-Star Wars FanFic under each category. If you prefer to submit your nominations anonymously, please send them via PM to @The Golden Yoda.

    *If you are in a hurry, remember that links do not have to be fancily formatted -- the URL is just fine! For example, the plain URL link to this page would be: https://boards.theforce.net/threads...-week-1-style-length-february-12-18.50058800/

    *Whatever exorcist rites were attempted to banish devilinthedetails to the dark depths of the Internet have failed and she has returned for another week to offer her long list of favorites in the Characters and Relationships categories.
