    What SW planet would you live on?
    Bakura - outer rim

    In which era?
    NJO - Wish they'd used this!!!

    With which group? (e.g. Rebels, Jedi, Death Watch, etc.)
    Jedi - Well I'd hang with them,...one of them.... :p

    Legends or New Canon (I'm assuming Legends?) and why?

    Legends of course - I just like the tapestry woven, the details, the vast wealth of characters that could have been used/created in flesh

    Do you prefer reading, writing or drawing/other types of art?

    writing, and reading......I cannot draw to save myself.

    Are those one word answers I see? :eek: Lucky this isn't another thread ;) apparently the mod is quite strict there.

    Clearly you have an affinity with the Jedi, but if you couldn't be a Jedi what would you be / do?

    One character death in SW you wish you could change/prevent?

    What are you raving on about, must need new glasses ;)

    Clearly you have an affinity with the Jedi, but if you couldn't be a Jedi what would you be / do?
    I'd have signed up to be a pilot, probably not a good one and most likely a dead one :p

    One character death in SW you wish you could change/prevent?
    Anakin Solo. I actually cried when he died, sat with my book in my lap crying in disbelief.

    @Adalia-Durron [face_batting]
    On Luke and Mara, the way they got together in VoTF, did you like it or what would you have done different?

    And for Jaina: did you like her with Jag?

    Do you like browsing in stores/libraries, or are you the kind of person who likes to go in, get what you're looking for and check out?

    Favorite color?

    On Luke and Mara, the way they got together in VoTF, did you like it or what would you have done different?
    Would have liked the 'snarky' lines and tension to stay around, the softening of Mara toward Luke deflated it for me.

    And for Jaina: did you like her with Jag?
    Put simply, No. He's got the personality of a wet dish rag!!

    Do you like browsing in stores/libraries, or are you the kind of person who likes to go in, get what you're looking for and check out?
    I am a browser, and will enter every store just to see what's on offer. The often people will say "I need a ......" and I can say "Yeah, saw them at ...." :p Exercise is another word for it.,

    Favorite color?
    Purple and every shade of it.

    Have you read any of the books in the BBY years?

    Not really. Read the books for the movies then but that's about it.

    What is your favourite SW books of all time? :p
    Have a soft spot for Truce at Bakura.

    What is your favourite SW species and why?
    I like Twi'leks, they have such awesome skin colours!

    Who is your favourite SW background character?
    Gavin Darklighter, just like him!!

    If you could meet one SW character, who would it be?
    If you could be best friends with a SW character, who would it be?
    Which SW ship would you fly?

    If you could meet one SW character, who would it be?

    Kyp of course, then I'd be arrested not long after for kidnap and ..........inappropriate actions ;)

    If you could be best friends with a SW character, who would it be?
    I'd like to be Jaina's friend. I suspect we'd have a bit in common.

    Which SW ship would you fly?
    X Wing of course, but I'd do an A Wing given the opportunity.

    Would you rather bring Mara or Kyp back into Canon?
    WOW, You know I put off answering this lost because of THIS question as I simply did not think I could answer it. Fandom world wide would go Mara, I'd personally go Kyp. ;)

    Just reminding people that Wednesday (Tuesday for those North Hemi people :p) will be the last day to get your questions in!! Addie, you will still be able to answer questions after that if you don't get to on Wednesday ;) Then we will be moving to the next interview! :D

    @Adalia-Durron
    Do you speak any different languages?

    Since you answered about your feelings for Jaina & Jag, what do you think of Jaina and the one and only Kyp Durron? :p

    Who would you want to meet from the JCF? ;)

    Other than yourself, was there anyone you thought Kyp would have been good with romantically? Or was he better off staying single and "available"? ;)

    What's the oldest thing you remember on TFN after joining?

    Were there any TFNers you didn't get along with but later became friends?

    Learned Indonesian in School, but High School was last decade. I can count to 10 in it now and say good afternoon.

    Since you answered about your feelings for Jaina & Jag, what do you think of Jaina and the one and only Kyp Durron? :p
    Nope.........all kinds of Nope. More like a big brother, he's too old for her too.

    Who would you want to meet from the JCF? ;)
    Aside from you? Theres a list and if I ever win lotto, I will fly them all to a point and have a big party.

    Other than yourself, was there anyone you thought Kyp would have been good with romantically? Or was he better off staying single and "available"? ;)

    Single, you gave me that option!!

    What's the oldest thing you remember on TFN after joining?
    Me.....I look back and I am the oldest thing I remember.

    Were there any TFNers you didn't get along with but later became friends?
    Not that I can recall. There's been a couple I did like then learned they weren't who they were pretending to be. I do not like liars. Take note. o_O

    Thanks @Khalia Octa for hosting this thread!

    Why did you join the JCF?

    I was looking for Luke/Mara fanfiction so I googled it and found fanfictions that captured my notice. I could not lurk then!

    Why such a long username?

    "Nyota" is for Nyota Uhura [face_love] & Ayesha is for the original character created by Chyntuck -- a courageous, vivacious lovely artist she paired with Thrawn! =P~ Serious fangirl thrills!

    What is the best kind of food?

    Hmmm. Broadly speaking, I have to mention 2 categories: sushi for the entree. For the dessert category, anything with chocolate!

    But seriously, caramel apple tartlets and guava cream cheese pastries are super duper for breakfast! [face_laugh]

    Do you have any pets/want any pets?

    Never did, don't want any either. :p




    @ThisIsMe1138 hello! @};-

    What are your favorite kinds of fanfiction to read? To write?

    I love reading short stories to epics, with lots of character/relationship growth, humor, action, and mush! To write: I usually do shorter pieces, drabbles, vignettes, short stories.
    I absolutely adore AUs and missing moment type fics. :cool:

    Favorite planet?

    I like Alderaan very much & Chandrila. The culture(s) as well as the physical loveliness.


    Favorite Star Wars name?

    Mara & Jaina

    Favorite hobbies?

    I love listening to jazz and reading: besides fan fictions, I read biographies and nonfiction works.
    I also like a good mystery once in a while & historical fiction.

    Are you happy to read fictions only, or do you like interacting with others here?

    Do you have 'fan girl' collectibles?

    Does anyone in your RL world know about your obsession?

    What's something you wish you had known upon joining JCF?

    Pretend you have a reoccurring Star Wars dream. What would you want it to be about?

    Who, fictional or real, deserves a new biography?

    @Adalia-Durron & @Ava G. ----

    "Are you happy to read fictions only, or do you like interacting with others here?"

    I have recently branched off into role playing and enjoy that and also pop into social threads to catch up on what's going on and give well wishes/sympathy as needed.


    "Do you have 'fan girl' collectibles?"

    No, never thought about collecting anything, just books. ;)

    "Does anyone in your RL world know about your obsession?"

    Yes, my family does. :D

    "What's something you wish you had known upon joining JCF?"

    Hmmm. Not sure there is anything, since anything I needed to know I learned as I went along. :)

    "Pretend you have a reoccurring Star Wars dream. What would you want it to be about?"

    Going on a mission of adventure and discovery, helping out a person or society in distress. Probably would ground it during the OT or soon thereafter.

    "Who, fictional or real, deserves a new biography?"

    Oooh, what a fascinating question! I can't think of a real person who needs a new biography, but I would have loved in SW a completely Mara-centric novel, and now I want that kind of thing focusing on the Rebels crew.

    @Khalia Octa [face_batting]

    "If you won an award, what would it be for?"

    Not recently, but for a while there it would've been for being a perpetual student. :D I have a couple graduate degrees, and a couple of certifications, the latter 2 for career changes I've gone through.

    "How did you get into writing fanfics?"

    There was a challenge called "Monday Mush Mania", where you write a fic that's warm and fuzzy and post it on Monday ;) It can be romantic mush or sweet moments between parent/child, siblings, friends. :)
    So I wrote a fic called "Two Dances Across Time". I haven't looked back since! [face_laugh]

    "When did you first experience Star Wars?"

    Oh no! [face_rofl] I'm dating myself. With "A New Hope" right around when it first came out in theaters. [face_shhh]

    "Favourite SW canon characters?"

    Han/Leia will always, always be up there!

    Also, the entire "Ghost" crew:
    Kanan/Hera, Ezra, Zeb, & Sabine, and don't forget, Chopper!

    "Favourite SW Legends character?"

    Mara Jade. Favorite character that could go in either: Thrawn.

    "What is your funniest dream that you remember?"

    Hmmm. Can't say about funniest, but most wonderful: riding a dolphin, and another: singing like Celine Dion. I wish! [face_laugh]

    "Have you ever met a JCF member in real life?"
    No. But I have e-sibbed a few. LOL

    "What is your favorite memory involving Star Wars?"

    It was the reading of 2 Zahn novels: Vision of the Future and Survivor's Quest.
    Vision of the Future had me going FINALLY! when L/M got together & Survivor's Quest was L/M-centric. Lovely!
