    Challenges are usually issued every month. Some will be themed around seasons and holidays, but, in an effort to be fair to A/Pers from all backgrounds, holiday-based challenges will usually have an alternative. Except for game challenges (roulettes, author guessing, fic swapping, etc), most challenges posted will not have a time limit or due date. Most fic challenges can be posted on the fic boards in their own thread, barring, again, a special challenge that may require a response thread. Each challenge will clarify any unique rules or details when it is issued. You can submit your challenge entry via PM to the indexer or to the sock or, more preferably, you can post a link to it in this thread. Feel free to be inspired by certain elements of a challenge without actually entering the challenge. Fics that meet all the requirements of a challenge will be rewarded, however, with a [face_idea] when they are listed in the main index. Entries to challenges will be listed in the post that issued the challenge.

    requirements:

    So, this is it. Welcome to the third A/P index. I hope you like it. :D This is a beta version of sorts; the buttons aren?t done yet and the colors are temporary. What can I say? I?m impatient.

    Sorry about the delay in putting this up; section nine (now and forever known as ?section nine from hell?) didn?t like its markups. Hopefully someday we can return it to its intended glory. Just not today.


    So, our current topic is Welcome/Getting to Know You. Introduce yourself! What draws you to the A/P pairing and fics? Do you like to write A/P, read it, or both? What's your favorite A/P fic that you've read? Why? And, if you've written it, what fic are you most proud of? Why? (Yay fic pimping!)


    And our current challenge is ?Write a vignette about Anakin and Padme's honeymoon or wedding aftermath. Angsty, happy, loving, tragic? It's up to you.?

    This is YellowDart?s challenge from her thread. I wanted to give people a chance to do it if they were planning on it. However, there will be a new, Holiday challenged issued before December :D

    Responses to this challenge will be linked to on this post.

    So, hi :) I'm PA. Nice to meet you. ;)

    As I was indexing the new fics from this past year, I came across many a new user name, and I realized that face of the A/P writing circle has changed dramatically since I was last in charge of the databank. I haven't written much in that time, either. So it might be very well possible that many of you are as unfamiliar with me as I am with you. So I wanted to our first topic to be a hello of sorts, so I can meet some of you guys, um, post-to-post ( :p )

    I've been an A/Per since before there was an A/P, if that's possible. ;) As a SW fan before the PT came out, I was always fascinated by this Anakin Skywalker person that existed behind Darth Vader. I wanted to know what he was like and who Luke and Leia's mysterious mother was. She was his wife, I knew that much from a tiny passage in the RotJ novel. When Queen Amidala - with her fantastic clothes and shiny blaster - was introduced, I wasn't disappointed. Unlike most people, I've stayed an A/Per not so much because of their characters, but because of their situtiation. Imagine, an entire galaxy's fate controlled by the love of one couple, and the offspring that loved produced. It's so very epic :p I think that's why I mainly like AU - to see what would have happened to the galaxy had the couple made different choices.

    I'm not a particularly good or prolific writer, but all my longer stuff has been A/P. My first fic was A/A, written before AotC and involves the clones attacking the Republic :rolleyes: It gets an F for effort. It's in my profile, if you're so inclined to read it, though I might assign it as story of the month if you do something to displease me [face_devil] My more recent fic is To Stop the Suns From Setting. No comment about that. At least it's done. I have a new AU fic, though, that I'm working on, involving an older but not married A/P. I quite like that one so far.

    I can't say that I have a favorite fic, at least not at the moment. (Although Misunderstood by Quill of Molliemon on ff.n is rather close to crack, imho.) Some of the older fics I enjoyed will become Stories of the Month, mixed in with random ones (I'll tell you when I'm particularly fond of a certain fic and why).

    Hi, I'm JmsBndGrl :)

    I'm one of the newer writers Pallas-Athena mentioned in her post. I've only been writing fics for a little over a year now, but I've been reading for longer than that.

    I've been a Star Wars fan since I was five and saw the Original Trilogy for the first time. I fell in love with the A/P story after Episode II and discovered the world of fanfiction about a year after that. However, I did not become an avid reader until just before ROTS came out. I became fascinated by the different spins people gave to A/P's story and found a great way to pass the time catching up on fics written long ago. I was a bit caught up in the hype for Episode III, but I'm still here and writing fics of my own.

    I started writing fics after some coaxing from a friend of mine, Darksideyesplease, who is another writer of A/P fics. My first fic was called, "More to Life," a very AU short story where Anakin and Padme are setup by the Jedi Council to fall in love. Looking back on it, I really hate that story, but it is what got me started on the boards so it was good for something. If you want a laugh at a completely ridiculous story, it is linked in my profile. It is very AU, you have been warned. :p

    I generally write AUs, I play around with what-if scenarios with A/P and/or other characters. After a little over a year of writing, fanfic has become my hobby. Of course, my hobby is sometimes a little out of control. When I first started writing fanfiction I thought I'd just write vignettes and short stories, but my stories have become epics (two 100+ pages, and my current WIP is 424 pages long today).

    The purely A/P fic that I have written that I am most proud of it the fic I wrote after "More to Life." It is, "The Emperor's Gift, The Emperor's Curse," a tale where Anakin and Padme do not initially know each other. In it Rebel Leader Padme Amidala is captured and given to Darth Vader (suitless) as a gift. The two spend a good chunk of the story arguing with each other before they realize they are falling in love with one another and chaos ensues. I enjoyed writing that story and as I neared the end of it I got the plot bunny for my current WIP.

    My current WIP is "Always in Motion," Anakin and Padme are in it and their story is important, but they are not the central focus, Obi-Wan and an OC character I created are the focus. Without giving away the ending, Obi-Wan crash lands on Earth and falls in love with an Earth Girl who has seen the Star Wars films. When Obi-Wan discovers the information detailed in the movies, it throws the future of the Star Wars universe out of whack as he struggles to stop Anakin's fall to the dark side.

    "Always in Motion," was supposed to be longer that "The Emperor's Gift, The Emperor's Curse," but I figured it would only be 20 pages longer. 300+ pages later, I am still writing it. :rolleyes: And somewhere in the craziness of that story I found time to write a few other short stories, vignettes, and the sequel to "The Emperor's Gift, The Emperor's Curse." (All in my profile and all A/P) Don't get me wrong, I am pleased with my "Always in Motion," story (I wouldn't still be writing it if I wasn't). It just hasn't done what I expected it to do. That is one thing that is fascinating about writing, as you go about laying out a story things can evolve and change from the way you originally planned.

    As for a favorite fic that isn't mine. That is a tough choice I've read lots of stuff on and off the boards that I like, but the following three are a few ones I have read multiple times that are on the boards:

    Vignette - "The Funeral" by Darksideyesplease
    Short Story - "The Resurrection of Padme" by Darksideyesplease
    Epic - "Why Do I Love You?" by Anakin_Heartbreaker

    What draws you to the A/P pairing and fics?

    The tragedy of it. You knew before ROTS that Padme was gonna die & probably at his hands which made AOTC kinda um... Bittersweet.

    Do you like to write A/P, read it, or both?

    I write them & read whatever I can get my hands on so long as it?s tolerably written & the characters aren?t outta wack.

    What's your favorite A/P fic that you've read?

    So far, Kaleidoscope by Leia_naberrie because Vader as a spoilt brat & Knight of Darkness by Sabrelight because I?m morbid .

    And, if you've written it, what fic are you most proud of?

    I Will Not Fail over on my short fic thread because I love the angst & Dead Secrets because it?s sad.

    Also my AOTC from Padme?s POV 1st person because its so freaking long & it was the first fanfic that I started writing - though the third for me to complete & post.

    Hi, I?m Erica or Star_Angel if you like (Eri, angel and/or star is also fine)

    I guess that I?m still a newbie when it comes to both writing SW fanfics and being a SW fan in general, only about 3 years now. My 1 year anniversary of being a member here is in January.

    Well, I both read and write A/P fics and I love them, there is just something with the paring that gets to me and they are both two fascinating characters with so many emotion and a story that just makes you want to explore in it, no matter if it?s canon or AU that I write.

    I guess it has been for me what jmsbndgrl said in her post, writing fanfics is a hobby that sometimes gets a little (or a lot) out of control but I love it so I will continue writing and reading fanfics until I can?t do it anymore which I hope will be never.


    The first vignette I ever posted here literally sucked, it was terrible so I?m really trying to forget about it. My first loner fic was ?In the Soul of the Force?, a Jedi Padmé/*suitless* Vader fic that took me a long time to write but I?m very proud of it and I?ve started a sequel to it called ?Keep the Faith? which is so much darker then the first one which was very light and mushy.

    I also have a crossover fic with Pirates of the Caribbean, which is another of my many fandoms, and many other Pirate tails (I grew up near the sea) it?s a A/P story of course with some SiriWan and with the always so lovely Jac?sorry, Captain Jack Sparrow in the GFFA. I love that fic, it's called "Pirates" (and I came up with that name before I knew what you might be thinking now)

    I?ve also written three A/P viggies called:
    ?A different Kind of Lifeday Gift? ? A vig that I wrote in the middle of the night but which I think was one of my best once, and I love it still.
    ?Meanings and Choices? - came from a plot-bunny that hit me while I was watching the CW, it?s a missing moment sort of a thing from chapter 1.
    ?Our Lips are Sealed? ? was a challenge response.

    Hmm, what else, oh, I?m actually planning to write a, well, actually, I have two in planning, but I will post at least one of them (I'm hoping on both) A/P fics taking place in the beyond_the_saga (after RotJ) which I think will be so much fun to write because it gives me a chance to explore in other parings as well as my favourite one.


    I really wish that I could give you my favourite A/P fic but I?ve read so many, and I read more everyday so giving just one fic is almost impossible. So I can say this, if I read a fic then it?s a favourite of mine, and I?m reading like 100 stories at once so you get the picture.


    Anything, else? Not that I can think of at the moment but the new thread looks great.

    Hooray! A new thread. And wow, does it look great!

    I am bound and determined to be a better participant so let me see if I can respond to the November discussion topic without embarrassing myself.

    Introduce yourself!

    Well, my name is Erin and as you can probably tell from my user name, I hail from Virginia. I've been married for almost five years now and while we don't have any kids yet, we do have a very spoiled Westie. :D

    What draws you to the A/P pairing and fics?

    Strangely enough, the romantic tragedy of it all. No, it doesn't make sense to me either - I'm totally a happily-ever-person in real life! Yet the possibilities for this pair are endless and intrigue me.

    Do you like to write A/P, read it, or both?

    Definitely both!

    What's your favorite A/P fic that you've read? Why?

    Oh my gosh, there are so many, I just don't think I could narrow it down to one all-encompassing favorite. But for any new readers who want something so unique that it will knock their socks off, check out "Sweet Retribution" by VaderLVR64. There is nothing else like it.

    And, if you've written it, what fic are you most proud of? Why?

    Hmmmm... I'm fairly pleased with the way my current WIP is going: "Awash in Broken Promises." I've been mulling it over in my head since AotC came out, so the plot is deeper than anything I've attempted before. And even if it kills me, I'm sticking to the original ending I planned. However, if I vanish unexpectedly, that means my readers tracked me down. [face_worried] [face_skull]

    Hi, I'm Nat, and though I don't read many A/P fics, it's something that I want to get into. I don't think I've ever written anything A/P outside of a vignette or two, but these challenges seem like a fun way to start :)

    I'd have to say my favorites (out of the limited number I've read) are VaderLVR's 'Force Help Me! She's Pregnant' and the sequel (can't recall the name) which, I'm happy to say, I found on the A/P v2 index when right when it opened. I also enjoyed (about four years ago) one that Ams and Mar17swgirl wrote on the Classic board. Can't recall the title, but it's a humor story about Obi-Wan having to put up with Anakin, Padme, and a ton of handmaidens on a vacation on Naboo.

    Looking forward to watching ths grow :)

    The thread?s looking incredible, Pallas! Awesome start, It can only get better from here!

    Introduce yourself

    *waves* Hi, my name?s Anne, I?m a recently married (think August this year ;) ) 25 year old who hails from Alberta Canada (no, I don?t live in an Igloo). I?m a soccer (European football) referee, a hobby writer and devoted ferret owner. I have 5 fur kids, who are all spoiled rotten: Boo, Magoo, Nibbler, Sienna and Cookie (Monster).

    What draws you to the A/P pairing and fics?

    The ?What if? aspect of it. I love the overall tragedy aspect, how the love of this couple really affects the outcome and fabric of the entire galaxy.

    Do you like to write A/P, read it, or both?

    I write more than I read ? but when I?m not writing A/P, I read it more than I write it. Mostly because when I?m writing something, I don?t want to unintentionally (unconsciously) steal someone else?s ideas.

    But then, I usually only dabble in A/P anyway.

    What's your favorite A/P fic that you've read? Why?

    The Stop the Sun from Setting by Pallas. I adore this fic ? it was the first A/P I read, it was so unique and done in such a way that it sucked you right in from the get go. Nothing I?ve read with similar story lines, and done from a different POV, has come even close to touching the emotional impact this fic has.

    I swear I'm not sucking up - it's the truth :p

    And, if you've written it, what fic are you most proud of? Why?

    I?ve written a lot of A/P, come to think of it. I don?t really have one or another that I?m really overly proud of ? each being a challenge in its own way - though ?A New Path to Follow? was certainly something I thoroughly enjoyed writing because of the uniqueness and challenging plot that came to mind.

    Introduce yourself!
    Hi I'm MJ. I mainly write beyond the saga stuff, but I hope to get into more Saga stuff. I'm a starving artist, who's saving up money for art college. Writing passess the time when I'm not painting.

    What draws you to the A/P pairing and fics?
    The trajedy of it all.

    You've known from the beginning that she is going to die, and that gives their love a bittersweet, almost frantic feel to it. Then in the end he falls for her. Let me put it this way. It's something that Shakespere would have fun with.

    Do you like to write A/P, read it, or both?
    I mainly read . . . . and lurk.[face_blush]

    Yet I hope to start writing some soon.

    What's your favorite A/P fic that you've read? Why?
    "By The Grace of Lady Vader" by FernWithy; ami-padme; and Aeryn

    Hands down, probably my favorite fic of all time! It's just so wonderful! I love all of the interaction with Padme, and Vader, and the end of the sequal is just so tragic. In true AP fassion.

    If you've written it, what fic are you most proud of? Why?
    Haven't written anything yet . . . .:(

    Challenges seem a good place to start though.;)

    Hi! I'm Kelia. I've been around the boards for about a year and a half but due to DRL constraits, I don't usually spend a lot of time in discussion threads but I'm looking forward to spending what time I can here.

    What draws you to the A/P pairing and fics?

    I love a good love story and there's also the "forbidden" love factor. There's something so fascinating and fun about going after and enjoying what's forbidden.

    Do you like to write A/P, read it, or both?

    Both!

    What's your favorite A/P fic that you've read? Why?

    That's a tough one. There are a lot of great stories out there but if I have to chose, I'd say the Dancing, Racing and Skating with the Star Wars series by VA_Parky because they were filled with action, suspense, humor and some good old fashioned romantic mush. A perfect combination.

    And, if you've written it, what fic are you most proud of? Why? (Yay fic pimping!)

    [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Message.aspx?topic=23532480&brd=10476&start=23584824]A Chosen Destiny[/link] because that was my first full lenght A/P story and it was a hugh accomplishment for me.

    Introduce Yourself!

    Hello, Friends! I am AnakinsFavorite, and you call me AF for short. I?m twenty years old, married to the love of my life, and expecting our first baby. I was introduced to SW when my grandpa didn?t want me to watch Titanic with my aunt (she?s a few years younger than me) and introduced me to ?some wholesome movies.? I?ve been a lurker here for four years and gained enough courage to join the boards after I was rejected from the school newspaper. Since then, I have become VA_Parky?s apprentice and tormentor to certain people I shall leave nameless.

    Other than that, I intend upon becoming a writer someday and have much admiration for anyone who even posts here!

    What draws you to the A/P pairing and fics?

    These days, I?m hard-pressed to show a pairing that is true of any real relationship, but I like the simplistic love of Anakin and Padmé. In my opinion at least, they show true love (not lust) and aptly show how, in DRL, even the most perfect relationships can fall apart.

    Do you like to write A/P, read it, or both?

    I do both but, with the fact that I?m working on so many pieces right now, I only have a little time for reading- so what I do read is definitely over-the-top.

    What's your favorite A/P fic that you've read? Why?

    My all-time favorite fic was By a Route Obscure and Lonely (by VaderLVR64). I?ll read anything by these authors: VA_Parky, Anakin_Heartbreaker, VaderLVR64, CrazyAni, Sabrelight, Gina, DarthIshtar, and jmsbndgrl.

    And, if you've written it, what fic are you most proud of? Why?

    Well, all of my fics are my babies and have something different to offer.
    Mon Aimé Perdu: it is a shocking account of what I think would have happened if Padmé had survived and was captured by Vader
    The Game of Death: I adopted this from AH who did an excellent job. It?s different than anything I?ve ever done before but am enjoying it and the loyal readers immensely.
    Lost Souls and The Number Game are the two viggies I?m most proud of- both are rather bone chilling and my first attempts at horror.

    Indeed you are ;) I ran into your name many times and found it easier to abbreviate it jmsb while indexing. Now that I see it with the caps, it makes more sense :p
    [blockquote]I started writing fics after some coaxing from a friend of mine, Darksideyesplease, who is another writer of A/P fics.[/blockquote]
    Coaxing is usually what it takes for me to write. And chocolate :p I remember Darkside; is he still around? I quite liked the Restruction of Padme, quite true to the characters, methinks.
    [blockquote]The purely A/P fic that I have written that I am most proud of it the fic I wrote after "More to Life." It is, "The Emperor's Gift, The Emperor's Curse," a tale where Anakin and Padme do not initially know each other.[/blockquote]
    I think I might have lurked on that one *ponders* [face_thinking]

    Oh, Knight of Darkness! That fic came out when I was a very active writer here. It's morbid ... but in a fun way [face_mischief]

    Heehee, for being a newbie, I've seen your name around a lot lately ;) My 6 year is coming up in a week or so. Hmm, I should go home and rethink my life [/mind tricked Elan].

    [blockquote]Hmm, what else, oh, I?m actually planning to write a, well, actually, I have two in planning, but I will post at least one of them (I'm hoping on both) A/P fics taking place in the beyond_the_saga (after RotJ) which I think will be so much fun to write because it gives me a chance to explore in other parings as well as my favourite one.[/blockquote]
    Oh, cool! I love post-RotJ AUs, especially when they involve A/P :D
    [blockquote]Anything, else? Not that I can think of at the moment but the new thread looks great. [/blockquote]
    Thanks :)

    Thanks ;) I'm personally horrible about replying to things and staying active. I only hope that I can make enough of a showing in this thread so every one doesn't have to go, "the indexer? Oh, um, that's what's her face ... with the Depa icon" ;)
    [blockquote]Well, my name is Erin and as you can probably tell from my user name, I hail from Virginia. I've been married for almost five years now and while we don't have any kids yet, we do have a very spoiled Westie.[/blockquote]
    Who needs human babies when you can have fluffy animal babies? [face_love] I have a very spoiled himalayan kitten.
    [blockquote]Hmmmm... I'm fairly pleased with the way my current WIP is going: "Awash in Broken Promises."

    I was a lot like that with one fic; had it in my head for years and just had to end it the way I meant it to. ;) I had a reader hunt me down once :eek: She was the loveliest of stalkers, though, she just left me little notes at my library carrel.

    Hmmm.

    *waves*

    Hi. My name here is Luna_Nightshade, but I go by Luna. My name came out of an inside joke in RL. [face_blush]

    Let's see. I became a Star Wars fan, honest and truly, because I randomly decided to go see RotS after work one day. I have no idea what possessed me. I fell in love with the tragedy of it all. Um... stumbled on the Fanfic Archive on a weekend with nasty weather in November or December of that year--something like that...lurked for a long time, and finally decided that maybe I'd be brave too. It just stuck with me.

    Random facts about me... I love penguins (only a few days until Happy Feet comes out!), marshmallows, and I'm an amateur astronomer.

    I like A/P because of the epic tragedy of it, yes, but also because of how easy it is to identify with both of them. I am rather similar to Padme mentally and I think I understand what makes her tick. Anakin has all the flaws of humanity, and I would have been tempted by all of his situations as well. To me, the A/P pairing is ripe with emotional and very real things to explore--things that don't need excessively complicated plots to really be powerful. They're powerful because they're real in a very unreal world. I like that.

    I write and read A/P both, preferentially. They're what got me into Star Wars in the first place.

    My favorite A/P fic... hmmm. Actually, Sweet Retribution by VaderLVR64 was what made me switch over to focusing on A/P alone instead of seeing A/P through Obi-Wan's eyes... if that makes any sense. It was easier at first for me to write A/P based on how Obi-Wan would have seen them--distancing myself from it--but after reading Sweet Retribution, I no longer need my Obi-Wan crutch. :p The whole fic made me gasp. It was Anakin and Padme in their natural, "real" power. Exactly what I like. :D

    Oh, and for fun, I quite enjoyed VA_Parky's reality series. Just silly joy.

    My favorite A/P fic I've written? I'm currently liking Tears and Rain, since it is almost exclusively P/Vaderkin, and it lets me show Padme as the strong woman/glue that I saw her as. That, and I'm currently writing it. Always have to like what you're working on at the moment. :p

    Great thread!

    I joke that I am conflicted about my fandom. Actually my two Halloween Socks are Star Wars related, but I've had the screen name JmsBndGrl for a while now and use it on lots of places. So obviously besides Star Wars, I am also a James Bond Fan. I've been known to bring up James Bond when doing my author replies, especially when it was announced Ewan McGregor did not take the role. :( I've spent the better part of a year bad mouthing Daniel Craig, but there is nothing I can do about it, I'll just go to the movies on Friday and hope for the best.

    Interestingly enough, I'm a big enough James Bond Fan to make it my screen name, but I don't write James Bond fanfiction. However, once in one of my stories, Obi-Wan introduced himself as: "Kenobi, Obi-Wan Kenobi." ;)

    And Darksideyesplease is still around. He has a new fic up on the Saga Boards called "The Yearning." The work on my own fic has prevented me from reading it yet, but I'll check it out when I have a chance.
