I need to make a comprehensive list of au ideas or something.

AUs Galore

This is a strange occurrence for me, but I am absolutely swamped with AU ideas recently (for, what else, Star Wars). Like, this is weird for me because I'm not *used* to having this much creative energy bouncing around in my skull.

In the last fandom that I wrote for (and still am, at the pace of a turtle stuck in tardy) I was lucky to have one or two.

I dunno what it is with Star Wars. It seems like every time I get back into actively liking it, I DIVE back in.

It's nice, though. GAC is fun to write, and with so much of it already done it's nice to have something I can go back and just edit (or look at when I'm feeling down about the word count).

Oh my god, but I should mention Frisson.

I've been throwing around a coupla Qui-Gon lives AUs, one of which is him becoming a Sith. And I made a post about it on Tumblr, just me fuffing about with the idea really, and people REALLY LIKED IT.

Hello, I even started getting asks for it from people I'd never even spoken to before! Makes me feel bad that I haven't been in the right headspace to actually write coherent, long parts for it, but it also makes me really excited for when I AM able to.

I think that'll be the next major SW project after GAC is done, or close to being done. The next to chapters of that are all but ready to post, and I think I might Friday before I leave for my trip, but - again - the spoons have left doing just about everything a chore in endurance. Sigh. And even now I still feel like I'm making excuses when I say that. Bah.

I've also been juggling the idea of a Satine/Obi-Wan/Qui-Gon type thing around, set in the clone wars, where Obi-Wan left the Jedi Order, married Satine, had a beautiful Obitine love child, and Qui-Gon survived the duel with Maul.

Then I have ANOTHER one where older, Star Wars Rebels era-ish Ben, Vader, and Ahsoka somehow get transported back in time to the Clone Wars, and have to put aside their differences to work together. I mostly want to write it for the reactions of CW characters. Ventress being gobsmacked by Ahsoka, by VADER, Ben being this cyncial, salty old bastard that can talk to spirits (which I'm sure would be interesting to Ventress and the NighT Sisters and Mother Talzin and yadda yadda.)

I also wanted an excuse to have Vader and Ben be forced to get along. I think it could be a really cool dynamic to explore.

...Then I have ANOTHER one with Imperial!Hera meeting Kanan and the Ghost Crew, which could be fun. I've thought about an SWR time travel AU, but I can't really wrap my head around what would happen. *shrug* I really just focused on Kanan getting all buddy buddy with his grandmaster, Mace Windu; young!Ahsoka and Ezra being buds; Zen hitting it off with all the Clones lmao; and blah blah.

And, of course, various other Vaderkin fic ideas, mostly surrounding the idea of Mustafar happening differently. Like one where Anakin ended up killing Padme AND Obi-Wan, and one where Padme figured out Obi-Wan was on her ship, etc etc. I do so enjoy Mustafar AUs.

Im also on the wall about an aspect of GAC. Primarily: is it Obikin shippy?

The reason being I got some supremely awesome fanfare for it recently, and the chick tagged it Obikin.

And of course I'm not gonna say "hey this is wrong" but it did get me thinking.

Are they shippy in this fic?

Part of me thinks they could totally be, it's really how you read it. I don't plan on making it sexual, but the emotional and psychological aspect is ubër shippy. I like to call it the Hannigram Syndrome: they're together without being together lol. Idk. Guess time will tell for sure, only now I'm not sure whether I should add that relationship tag to the fic.*shrug* I'd feel like an awful liar.

On the plus side of today, rum cake.

Wish we had some milk, though.

Or *actual* rum.

A mass shooting at the Inland Regional Center about half an hour from where I live. I know multiple people that work near there.

If you're the praying sort, please do.

So I finally caved and made a profile on here, since it sounded like fun aaaaand it never hurts to have a backup site handy, amirite?

Anyways, still trying to find my way around this new and strange place. It's pretty exciting.
