08:51 pm - More old fic online!
I just put up the first long fic I ever finished, at fanfiction.net. It's Star Wars--my one and only venture into that fandom--and it's action/adventure. For those who care, it also features two OFCs (though no actual romance), but nevertheless I found that I still really like the story.

Force-powered action sequences are so much fun to write. :-)

Wow...this is very well-done. Enjoyable, but what did you mean about self-insertion? I didn't think projecting oneself's personality or elements of oneself into a character really fit that bill.

Agree with you about action sequences, although any kind of supernatural powers spice things up.

Thank you for your comments, JD! I appreciate that.

Re: self-insertion, I suppose in this instance one would have to know me fairly well to see the correlations. Aryn is a LOT like me. And people sometimes have a problem with characters who strongly resemble an author (particularly if the author places that character in a romance with a canon character like Qui-Gon).

No, I understand that, I've read enough blatant Mary Sues and pure self-insertion fics to last me a lifetime. I don't think you need to worry about offending anyone of delicate literary constitution, tho.
