    Depends on the prompt. I might be able to use my Star Wars character, I might not, we'll just have to wait and see.;)

    I have to wait for the prompts also; it'll probably be a montage of various characters and timeframes. :cool:

    "Signing up," the madwoman typed, a stunning five days before the deadline.

    I don't have an overarching plan--as any such would almost certainly fall apart at the first prompt--but this is my aesthetic:

    Needless to say, I can't wait to see what everyone is ultimately inspired to write. :cool:

    Except bring it on. [face_batting] [face_devil] (I think? :p)

    Now I get to go:

    But I really want to know what sort of out there means now - especially as you've already done EtF meets Regency!AU before. [face_batting] [face_mischief]


    Aw, yeah! And I am so excited for more of your thank goodness canon never happened happy!AU, already! [face_love]


    My mind somehow jumbled these together, and instead of rightly interpreting [dark]:luke:[/dark] it went: single dad!Vader and quite literal Luke Skywalker's teenage goth phase blasting angsty metal music in his room. Knowing what I know about your writing, it still worked. :p


    [face_laugh] I know that I want to write for my Song!verse, and my "plot bunny hutch" document looks like a bit like a madwoman's scribblings for myself. 8-}


    [face_laugh] We'd expect nothing less! [face_love] [:D]

    Oh gosh, I can’t promise anything in the way of an overarching theme either! For the last two I just went wherever the prompts led me and made the whole thing a miscellany. I almost certainly will take the same approach this time too. But once again, it seems probable that the long story at the end will, once again, be about the Rose Evergreen ladies. @};-

    You’ve got this, everyone! =D=

    I literally am coming into this with no context in mind. I will read the prompt and go “oh geez. Now I HAVE to write about the time that Chewbacca was in a boy band.”

    @vader_incarnate Please do put this on your list. Oh, and there's that story about Vader's secretary you mentioned last year that I'm eager to read too :D

    See, I could see Luke rebelling by finding the GFFA equivalent of Enya and playing it at ear-splitting levels whenever the Emperor calls.

    I've been thinking of having a milestones theme for various characters as to their storylines /relationships. :)

    The participant list has been updated! I'm very excited to see several new participants this year. [face_mischief]

    Only three days to go! Anyone else want to take the plunge? [face_batting]



    And don't forget you can also use any of the existing SW characters from canon/Legends/wherever! ;)


    I just may end up going this route as well, if the right unifying narrative doesn't present itself. [face_thinking]


    Perfect [face_mischief] [face_devil]


    [face_rofl] I know better than to underestimate you. [face_beatup] :*


    And it worked out wonderfully both times. ;) [face_batting]


    Most Elli thing ever. [face_mischief]


    lol is it telling if I say there's probably at least a prompt or two that would work for that? [face_whistling] :p


    That's the spirit! So good to have you aboard. :D


    Very eager, iirc :p I'll happily read this one, too!


    Luckily we only have a few more days until that first prompt is revealed! [face_dancing]


    Welcome to the madness! [face_mischief]



    It's almost here, guys! Rest up this weekend if you can, because Monday we hit the ground running. :cool:

    I was telling Mr Chyn about what I'm thinking of writing for the KR over coffee this morning while our kids were playing, and then I heard my son tell my daughter: "It's not fair, tomorrow we have to go back to school and Mama is going to be having fun with the Kessel Run!" (and trust me, you haven't heard anything until you hear the words Κέσελ Ραν out of the mouth of a 6-year-old with a Greek accent).

    Reminds me of learning who Esponbo Skehrpa was from a 4yo who knew who lived in a pineapple under the sea. Some things are just 100% more adorable in an accent and by a child.
