All the best to you, elliotcat. Take care of yourself.


I had actually been hoping to squeeze in another What if? entry this week, a followon to Earthmama's AU wherein a Force-sensitive Mitka attends the Academy with Rylon Niral.

They are so cute together. I like how after every interaction he wonders if it was a good sign or a bad one.

Thanks soooo much to everyone for the kind words. It really helped. I just have a lot on my plate right now; my little sister is getting married, I'm trying to find a job, and oh yeah...trying to get good enough grades for medical school! A lot of my schoolmates have been kind of scaring me about how hard organic chemistry is, so I've been really freaked out. It's a lot of stuff to juggle. But I'm hanging in there.

Anyway, I do have new prompts. Striges suggested these so, thank you very much! It's a big help.

FYI, I keep a list in a memo on my iPhone, so if you ever get struck with an idea send it to me and I'll add it to the prompt list.

Week of 8/24/12
Turning Point - Last week we wrote about what life would be like if major events didn't happen. This week, we're writing about major events that DID happen. Pick a particularly important moment for your character, one that solidified their path. Write about what they did and why that moment was crucial.

Worst Day Ever - Everybody has a bad day. So do our characters. Maybe it was in their class story - like getting your ship stolen on your birthday - or maybe it was something that happened before or after. Whether it genuinely was the worst day or your character was just in a bad mood and something happened to make it worse, write about a day that made them call it "the worst day ever".

Yay! I can't wait to get started on these! Also,I'll be praying your grades go good.

@Bright, I really liked this one! It was so awesome! I just really like how real life stuff intertwined with the SW universe! Awesome job!

Oh oh boy. There's going to be some interesting fireworks going on in there for a while I bet. Though they might get on well in the long run, which is a frightening thought.

That's kind of why I wanted to do it that way...they are scarily alike, when it comes down to it.

Wow. The best possible punishment without death and/or crude torture.

Absolutely awesome.
