    I'm not the best!

    I'm not loved by all!

    But I like writing and have some people who like what I do!

    I'd be tickled crimson if you read what I wrote!

    My favorite story of mine is "All the Wrong Places" about A/A's love story and the fall of Anakin Skywalker.

    "The Ties That Bind" is a very, well, I won't use the word fun because it's dark, but it's a fascinating AU.

    "The Other Half" is a trilogy that's as AU as they come. From a war crimes trial for the Skywalker twins through the rest of the trilogy upon the stipulation that Luke is a Sith, it explores a side of all characters that we rarely see.

    My collabs are "Strands of Time," "A Knight of the Order," "Ruins of Love", "To Follow My Destiny", "Flight of the Jedi", and others that I can't think of right now!

    I'm leaving in 10 days, so don't worry if you haven't read me; you'll have a year and a half to catch up!

    WHAT??? :mad: Ish, you ARE one of the best writers here, and you ARE loved! [face_love] :D [face_love] ::hugs Ish:: And you are going to be TERRIBLY missed this year! :_|

    OK, I'll promote myself too... :p (The links to my stories are in my bio) I still consider myself as a beginning writer, and I don't have many stories.

    My fanfic writing started with contribution to two round robins, "Star Wars meets Earth" and "Star Wars meets Earth JA" (which is a sequel to the first one), but a couple of months ago, I stopped writing there. Maybe I'll continue later, but now I'm very busy.

    My very first fanfic, "The Force Guiding", is now complete. I know it's bad, but it was my first try to write something on my own. [face_blush] :p It's an OC story, set in JA time, and Qui and Obi play also rather big roles in there.

    My second fanfic, "Believe the Unbelievable", ended with a disaster (I locked it). No wonder, I only got this impulse at the beginning, and I didn't have a reasonable plot (and it was AGAIN a SW meets Earth type).

    And then I met Ish.

    She agreed to do "To Follow My Destiny" with me as my co-writer and a beta. It's an AU - what if Luke was raised by Obi and Padme on Tatooine and Leia stayed with Vader? [face_devil] Now that Ish leaves, I'll have to finish it alone, plus find a VERY good beta... ;)

    Ish also helped me join the "Strands of Time" authors (Ish, AngelQueen, LadyKenobi, Amidala_Skywalker, and jade_angel), so now I'm also the co-writer of "Strands of Time: Choice of Fate".

    Friendship with Am proved to be dangerous. In one of *THOSE* conversations we have on AIM (in fact, that was the FIRST one of *THOSE* convos), while she was writing a COF post, I persuaded her to a ... rather uncanny... :D scene involving Obi, Sabe, and Eirtae. And also one crazy, twisted, weird idea was born there...

    ... an idea for "Me, my Padawan, his girlfriend, and a bunch of handmaidens", shortly MMPHGAABOH, called "MMPH! GAH! BOMB!" by Ish. :D There's a warning on the first page, so read it VERY carefully before continuing. That story can cause a permanent damage to you! ;)

    I recently joined the co-author group (AngelQueen, Jairen, Pallas, and Neon) writing a story about Padme being Force-sensitive and trained in the Jedi Temple (it doesn't have a title yet).

    I'm also Am's all-knowing beta and I help her with her "If the Mask Fits" trilogy. I have a few fics planned for this year, mostly a big post-NJO project (for which I must do some research, because I haven't read any NJO yet... ;) ).

    Well, and that's about it. :D

    Ooh, a place to officially cheat. Well, I am going to drop a few lines for my favorite current.


    A bounty hunter has orders to capture a Jedi that is getting a bit to close to the truth.

    But when they meet, who will control who?

    Who's will is stronger?

    Will they join forces or go for each other's throats?

    And last but not least, will I ever stop asking questions that only I know the answers to?!!!!!

    Go to the story to find out!!!!!

    I'm done now.......

    My fanfics (finished or in progress):

    The revised, edited version of [link=]Nobody Wants to be Lonely[/link], a Skywalker family AU which will eventually become a trilogy (if I can ever get around to writing the sequel...)

    [link=]Quality Time[/link], an extremely short fic that takes place between ESB and ROTJ. Luke begins to hear voices, which are unfortunately familiar...

    [link=]As I Bid Thee Farewell[/link], another short story involving Padme giving birth to Luke and Leia, giving them up, the developing of a disease that will ultimately kill her, and her escape to exile on Dantooine.

    [link=]As I Draw My Final Breath[/link], a sequel of sorts to As I Bid Thee Farewell. Padme's death, and Luke, Leia, and Vader's reactions.

    [link=]Surviving Fate: What if Amidala Survived the Prequel Trilogy[/link], one of my all-time faves. Basically, it's a re-write of the OT, but with Padme tied in as a member of the Rebel Alliance. All of it follows the basic plotlines of ANH, ESB, and ROTJ.

    [link=]A Mother's Love[/link], Padme stays with Luke on Tatooine to raise him. A dark story full of chills, thrills, and an ultimately depressing ending. However, there is some light moments, including a contrasting "parent-trap" scene. Well worth the read.

    [link=]Coruscant Academy[/link], a sweet little story about Luke and his Daddy-dearest. A treat for all you Luke and Vader fans out there ;)

    [link=]A Week With the Skywalker/Solos[/link], now here's a story that I can honestly say I had loads of fun writing. Many of my devoted readers know me through this story, and it was my true claim-to-fame. This is the most psychotic, insane, completely and utterly craziest story you will ever read. WARNING: I WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR MISCARRIGES, SPILLED DRINKS ON YOUR KEYBOARD, OR RUINED NASAL PASSAGES DUE TO EXTREME, INTENSE LAUGHTER.

    [link=]A Year With the Skywalker/Solos[/link], the round-robin sequel to AWWTS/S. Some very talented authors have posted here, and it's an honor to be able to say that I have worked with them to make this saga everyone's, and not just my own.

    [link=]A Christmas With the Skywalker/Solos[/link], the third installment in the Skywalker/Solo saga. This was a solo project, and though I love my AYWTS/S co-authors, this was something that I wished to work on by myself. Once again, I'm not responsible for any of the hazards involved with laughing your butt off.

    [link=]In Things Rich & Strange[/link], a weird Ani/Ami fic. I figured I might as well ;)

    [link=]My Soul's Existence[/link], a spooky Ami/Vader AU. Vader is given the ultimate task.... Let's just say he's none too happy about it.

    Those are all my best fanfics. I have started others... hmm, what were they called again? Here On Earth or something. I am not proud of those stories, and I hope you never find them, for your sake.

    I am ThatJediGirl. Many people know me here, and I am known as the girl who says non-relevant things and have written one solo story called:

    [link=]~*~ The Meaning Of Love ~*~[/link]

    It is about Padme, Anakin, and Obi Wan. The troubles that life has brought them and what they must do when something horrible is thrown in their life. Angst/Romance.

    The readers seemed to enjoy it, but it's not my best stuff.

    For all the readers of TMoL:

    The sequel, Falling From Light, is being written. And if you wish to read it- PM me.

    Falling From Light is in working progress and I hope to post it in the near future. It is a dark, dark fic that has much angst and despair.

One in which it was the Rebellion who won at Endor, Han Solo and Leia Organa are married, Luke Skywalker has reestablished the Jedi Order and married Mara Jade, and in which the Empire is at peace with the Republic.

    *Shamelessly enteres the thread* I can never resist the temptation of shamelessness ;)

    May I introduce the first fics I put up on the board, the Jysella Horn Duology!

    [link=]I, The Jedi's Daughter[/link] At the tender young age of 16, Jysella Horn learns the ways of the Force, meets her first love, and generally drives her father crazy.

    [link=]What More Kissing Leads To[/link] Two years after I, The Jedi's Daughter, Jysell marries Rand Thoran, only to have him sent away on a mission soon after. The months drag by in which Jysella learns she is pregnant, and that Rand has turned up missing. Jysella has no choice but to go against Master Skywalker's wishes and go rescue him herself, being 8 months pregnant.

    Second we have my longest fic so far: [link=]Galaxy's Reflection[/link]

    During the Vong wars Luke and Mara lose their son Mark. Little did they know an Earthling, Anthony Hamill, took their son to fabled Earth in order to save his life.

    Mark, raised by the Hamills, took the starring role in the new movie Star Wars: A New Hope completely unaware that the movie was based off of fact, not fiction. And that he was portraying his own father.

    Through the secret organization EGR (Extra Galaxial Relations) positioned on both the New Republic and Earth, father and son are reunited. But not without consequence.

    And now for my newest, and last novel length fanfic: [link=]Shadows of a Past Long Forgotten[/link]

    Shortly after the Vong have been defeated the New Republic is slowly rebuilding. The Jedi are split into two orders, Kyp Durrons' and Luke Skywalkers'. Luke encourages his Jedi to follow the light, while Kyp teaches his to follow both the Dark and the Light, creating a "Grey" order. Kyp belives using the Light and Darkside is the only way to balance the Force, and as the self proclaimed Chosen One, he feels it is his duty to do so.

    Naboo, believed to be destroyed when Palpatine comes into power resurfaces, (having used a Falanassi to create the illusion of a devestated world) but not without caution. King Richard Naberrie sends his son to investigate the New Republic incognito to determine their trustworthiness.

    Jedi Masters Corran Horn and Luke Skywalker rescue a young woman encased in carbonite from her would be abductors. Due to a horribly tramautic experience, the girl has lost her memory. Discovering Force sensitivity in her, Corran takes her on as an apprentice hoping to uncover the mysteries of her past. But everything he learns about her is more baffling then the first, from her extensive Force training, to the slim braid that hangs over her right shoulder.

    Meanwhile a mysterious hunter is killing of the Jedi, two by two.

    And, finally, my short little one post viginette: [link=]From Father to Son[/link]

    During one of Ben's late night feedings, Luke decides to tell him all about his father, unaware of a ghostly visitor...

    Ooh. Self-promotion. My favorite. :D

    [link=]The Circle[/link]

    It was the Battle of Endor. It was the final stand of a defiant, desperate rebellion. It was the day when heroes were born, martyrs were made, and a Sith lord fell.

    It was the day when the last Jedi fought his own darkness --

    -- and lost.

    Twenty-five years after hope died, the remnants of the Rebellion stumble across one final chance at victory. As three generations continue an ancient struggle, a band of unwilling heroes closes on the center of a destructive prophecy -- and a young mechanic named Ben Darklighter finds himself confronting the destiny he never wanted.
