So, I'm a Star Wars fan.

A Star Wars fan who's a little sad that the Extended Universe got handwaved away - I really loved Timothy Zahn and Michael Stackpole, and my requests this year reflect that. (I think last year I found this exchange after noms had already happened...)

However, I'm also a Star Wars fan who thought Rogue One totally and completely rocked it out of the park. Loved it loved it loved it!

Please don't refer to anything that happened after the godawful Vector Prime and switch to Del Rey.

I'm also not a very active Star Wars fan. I enjoyed TFA, I love the original 3, and I am NOT a fan of the prequels. My heart is with the original 3 (and Rogue One, now that it exists) and the "waved away" Extended Universe.

I'm also not really a Luke fan. Give me Han and Wedge any day of the week. And maybe Ben Kenobi.

General wants: I'm okay with fluffy-but-not-unrelieved-sugar, bittersweet-but-not-despair-of-the-ages, humor, romance, adventure, mystery. I am not opposed to sex as long as it's in character. Explicit is okay, but so is fade to black. I like "what-if" AUs, but not "Star Wars: The Dorms".

On all my requests, I'm TOTALLY and completely fine with the idea of the characters being in a tapcafe or cantina or bar telling stories about "that one time" - or having encounters in bars.

I forgot to nominate him alone this yer, but last year I had a request where Biggs lived and HE became the most famous pilot from Tatooine. Feel free to work this idea into any of your stories, if you like.

General DNW: No noncon, dubcon, graphic violence or torture, major character death (that's not already canon compliant - i.e., Han in TFA).

I know whatever you write, I'm going to love!

I've been remiss about updating lately.

My gifts for Trick or Treat Exchange were very spiffy.

The one most likely to be of interest to people reading here is called History, a Vorkosigan Saga fanfic that has Laisa and Tej having tea and an encounter from the past...

There was also a story for Wreck-It Ralph that was delightfully Halloween-apocalypse called Slouching Towards Niceland.  New games aren't always progress...

My last gift was for Star Wars (Original Trilogy) called visitant.  It deals with Wedge Antilles and the things he sees, this time of year.

I'll post about my works when they are revealed.  I haven't had time to read for recs yet.

 This was a new one with a lower limit (500 words instead of the usual 1000) and it was fun.  They plan to run it again next year and expand some, so I'll be looking forward to it.

 I got two gifts, which makes me excited.  I write a lot of pinch hits because I enjoy it, but I do admit feeling a little twinge of disappointment that no one ever treats me.

 My gift was Just Be Close At Hand with Leia and Luke.  My prompt was "tell us how Leia really feels about Luke" and I feel like this nailed it.  A little sweet, a little anger, a lot bitter, and all good.

 My Treat was An Im-Poe-rtinent Question with Wedge Antilles and Poe Dameron.  Short, sweet, in character and funny!

 My entry for the exchange was The Ones Left Behind, focusing on Leia and C-3PO being the last 2 together.  It's a little bitter and a little sweet, and my recipient liked it, which is good!
