    Yes, I love to decorate for Halloween. I like putting out pumpkins and squash
    and candles.

    I would recommend NCIS because it’s an ensemble cast and it’s less depressing than Law and Order: SVU. I would also highly recommend the new Duck Tales reboot. The writing is sharp, it’s a clever show, and David Tennant voices Scrooge McDuck.

    A show that’s not on TV anymore that I would recommend would be “The Big O”. It’s a good series for people not really into anime.

    My favorite Halloween films are Beetlejuice and The Witches.

    My favorite autumn films are Kubo and the 2 Strings and Little Women.

    Have you ever watched Firefly?

    If you have: Would you agree with the assessment that it got totally screwed over by the networks?

    What are some of your favorite quotes?

    If you haven't: Why the heck not?

    No, I have not.

    I haven’t watched it because it doesn’t appeal to me the same way Doctor Who does.

    Hi, all. Happy Halloween. [face_pumpkin] A time for ghosts, ghouls, and... interviews. The horror...

    So let's see what I got here...


    1. Are you dressing up for Halloween this year and if so what is your costume?
    -No, not dressing up.

    2. Do you like horror movies, and if so, what is your favorite? If not, do you have any other movies you like to watch around Halloween?
    -Not really into horror movies, but if I were to choose, I guess the more horror-lite film The Birds. I also like a lot of horror-esque video games. I don't really watch particular movies for Halloween.

    3. What is your favorite Halloween candy and why?
    - Probably Reese's pumpkins.

    4. If you could visit any Star Wars planet, which would it be and why?
    -Probably Naboo. I like the whole classic Greek architecture look of Theed.

    5. Who is your favorite Star Wars character and why?
    -Vader/ Anakin. In short, I just think he's a complex and interesting character.

    6. What is the most enjoyable aspect of writing fan fiction for you?
    -I guess just writing something based on something I'm a fan of. And all the "what if" freedom that goes with it.

    7. What motivates you when you write and how do you push through the dreaded writer's block?
    -Ideas, and just wanting to write it. And make something I and others would hopefully like to read. As for writer's block, I don't have a cure. It seems ''waiting it out'' is what usually happens.

    Favourite Halloween film/s? As in a movie where Halloween is an important/notable part of the movie
    -I don't really watch particular movies for Halloween, but if I did, probably the typical answer: Nightmare Before Christmas.

    Favourite autumn film/s?
    I don't have any, but if I were to recommend something, Fantastic Mr. Fox.

    Have you watched Firefly?...etc.
    I haven't.

    If no: Why not?
    I just never did. But then I'm often slow to get into shows/ movies even when they're super popular.

    Favourite non-human species and why?

    Favourite SW culture and why?


    What fictional culture would you like to see used as an inspiration in SW and how?

    What real life culture would you like to see used as an inspiration in SW and how?

    If you could change something in SW, what would it be?

    What SF technology that have not appeared in SW would you like to see appear?

    What kind of food pie do you prefer? Meat, chicken, cheese, ham & broccoli or something else?

    In SW? Probably Twi'leks and Togrutas for the design. I also like Wookiees and the Kaleesh.

    Jedi. Because I like the Jedi Order and its lore and customs.

    I don't think I have an expansive enough knowledge of what cultures have already been used as inspiration in SW... Maybe the Nameks from Dragonball Z. They look like they'd fit in visually. I don't think SW could handle Saiyans (not that that's a bad thing).

    Again, don't think I know enough about SW cultures to know what's already been done, but maybe a culture that's lesser known, something that doesn't get used much in fantasy/ sci-fi.

    I'd probably undo the ST.

    Not sure. Maybe teleportation? I don't know if I'd like it to be common though, since it's such a Star Trek staple.

    I'll be a food hispter and say "none of them" even though all of them sound good to me.

    What now Legend non-jedi, non-sith Force tradition would you like to see in the new EU and why?

    What, now Legend, non-humans species that have never gotten any real description would you like to know more about?

    Which one/s of the new non-human races we have seen in the ST and the NEU would you like to know more about?

    Which background character/s in the ST deserve to get his/her story told?

    [face_dancing] What is the easiest and the hardest part of getting Vader's "voice" just right, which I must say you're stellar at, btw?

    You write a young OT Luke splendidly. Do you think it would be easy or hard to write a post ROTJ Luke and why?

    Opening a large can of worms here LOL but what gripes do you have with how Luke is portrayed in Disney novels? :eek: :p

    I like both, but prefer cats.
    Don't have any. Not really into sports.

    I'm not that knowledgeable or interested in the EU, so I don't really have an opinion on this.
    Same as above, I don't really know.
    I'm not super into SW species and cultures, and I can't think of many that stand out... I guess the ''Rock People'' that appeared in one of the Marvel comics were kind of neat.
    None. At least, I'm not interested in any background ST characters.

    As in, do I like the genre? I'll go with Maybe.

    Haven't gotten into that much non-SW sci-fi, but I liked Ender's Game (the book). Not many sci-fi movies I can think of.
    Not really into Broadway musicals.
    Probably The Jungle Book.

    Thanks! Well, being my favorite SW character probably has something to do with it, but really, I can't think of many things about Vader that are easy to write, and that's probably warranted. If writing Vader is easy for you, you're probably doing it wrong.
    Thanks again! I don't see post-RotJ Luke as particularly hard to write, but I dunno. For me, I don't think post-RotJ Luke is that interesting. Probably part of the reason why I never got that into EU/ Legends stuff.
    I haven't read any Disney novels so I don't know. But if we're counting graphic novels/ comics, most of the OT-era ones I've read have been pretty good at depicting Luke. Honestly, my favorite things to come from Disney's SW has come in the form of comics. It's been something of a saving grace for me.

    @Gamiel:
    I only saw it once and don't remember much about it, so I'd say it was pretty "meh".
