Author has written 7 stories for Star Wars.
Hello there! I'm ForceforGood. I've been interested in writing since I was a child. One day, after graduating from college and while working as a journalist for a newspaper, I discovered FF.net and began writing fiction as a hobby for the first time in many years. I LOVE it! There is nothing more satisfying than finishing a story or a chapter and publishing it, and I love the give-and-take between authors and readers here on FF.net.
As you can see, I've posted a handful of Star Wars short stories, all of them featuring Obi-Wan as the main character:
The Shaman of the Whills, a novella-length story about Qui-Gon and a 15-year-old Obi-Wan seeking out the Shaman of the Whills. I was intrigued by the mention in a rough draft for "A New Hope" about a Shaman of the Whills who wrote a prophecy that one day a "son of suns" (i.e. Luke Skywalker) would save the galaxy. An early draft of "Revenge of the Sith" also had the ghost of Qui-Gon explaining that he learned the secret to immortality from a Shaman of the Whills. This story explores my ideas about who the Whills were. It has plenty of adventure, drama and mystery, and it's the short story I'm most proud of.
Celebrity is as Celebrity Does, which is chock-full of humor and fun. How does a modest guy like Obi-Wan deal with becoming a famous general during the Clone Wars? One thing is for sure, Siri Tachi will only make things worse for him. Has a hint of romance.
Obi-Wan Has a Bad Day: For a guy who has sworn off attachments, it's amazing how many women get paired with Obi-Wan by authors in both the authorized books and in fan fiction. I was amused by the contradictions involved in Obi-Wan getting paired variously with Siri, Satine, Padme, Ventress and more, and decided to challenge myself to write a story where he interacts with all of them at once. The story's a bit silly, but hey, if silly worked for Monty Python, it can work for me!
Breath of Heaven: A delivery and a deliverance: Fighting in a war is rather stressful. Obi-Wan thoughtfully tries to give Siri a nice gift to take her mind off things, but it doesn't work in quite the way he intended. More of a lighthearted friendship story than an outright romance, and I had some fun with a clone character as well.
Path of Contention, Path of Resilience: Featuring Obi-Wan as a young adult, Qui-Gon and Dooku. I got the idea for this story after learning about the various types of lightsaber combat and the philosophies that underpin each one. I thought it would be interesting to explore why these three Jedi chose the lightsaber forms they did. It's a work in progress because I got a bit stuck after two chapters, and then began devoting my attention to another story I'm now posting. If you have any ideas about where I could take this one, please send me a PM!
I am now in the process of posting my first novel-length story, entitled Forcestone: Guardian of Light. It's an Obi-centric AU version of events beginning toward the end of Episode 1 and spanning the gap to Episode 2. My main goal in writing this story is to correct what I see as inconsistencies in characters in Star Wars, while preserving everything that makes Star Wars so great. My intention is to make this Part 1 of a series of "Forcestone" stories that will take you all the way to the original trilogy. This story is for you if:
1) You think of Obi-Wan as the most admirable character in Star Wars, and you want to see the events of the prequels largely through his eyes.
2) You love the wistful regret of Ben Kenobi calling Anakin "a good friend" in "A New Hope," and you love the idea of the two becoming like brothers, but you felt the movies show them fighting far more than you see them bonding.
3) You love the strength of Padme Amidala as it's shown in Episode 1, but felt the movies did not adequately explain why she married Anakin despite knowing about the Tusken massacre and Jedi rules, or why she suddenly lost the will to live.
4) You didn't get enough of Qui-Gon in Episode 1.
5) You felt the movies did not adequately explain why Padme, Anakin and Obi-Wan left Shmi in servitude on Tatooine.
6) You like exploring the reasons and the flaws behind the Jedi Order's restrictions on attachment.
I am always happy to read reviews from readers, whether they are complimentary or contain constructive criticism. Really, I mean it. I want to hear from you!
I hope you enjoy my stories!
