Quote of the week:
"An 'impersonal God' -- well and good. A subjective God of beauty, truth and goodness, inside our own heads -- better still. A formless life-force surging through us, a vast power which we can tap -- best of all. But God Himself, alive, pulling at the other end of the cord, perhaps approaching at an infinite speed, the hunter, king, husband -- that is quite another matter. There comes a moment when the children who have been playing at burglars hush suddenly: was that a real footstep in the hall? There comes a moment when people who have been dabbling in religion suddenly draw back. Supposing we really found Him? We never meant it to come to that! Worse still, supposing He had found us?"
C.S. Lewis (love this quote! God is not what people often want Him to be, nor is He a God that people can form to fit their own needs and desires. He is personal: deeply loving, exceedingly merciful, full of grace, jealous for Himself, hating sin, justly condemning those who refuse Him, and so much more. He is so good!)
Hey everyone! A bit about myself, I suppose... I absolutely love the outdoors. Camping, fishing, hiking, outdoor sports, sledding, sledding, more sledding, building snowmen, having snowball fights, sitting in snow, being buried by snow. I LOVE snow!
I'm a believer in Jesus Christ, and always will be. He has given me the strength to face whatever this world can throw at me, and I will be eternally thankful for His love. I pray that each and every one of you would come to know Him as well! :)

Okay, so this is sort of random, but this music was just way too good to not share with you guys, at least in my opinion... :) Anyway, it's by Thomas Bergersen, which is probably a name that not many of you recognize, but it has no lyrics, just music. And it's beautiful. Here are some links to a few of my favorites of his; the others will probably pop up in the suggestion pane on the side:
Other music to check out (also without lyrics):

What you will find in my stories: Absolutely zero profanity! Made-up Star Wars lingo I use occasionally, but the closest I come to swearing is heck or crap. I do not use crude humor and will not write anything worthy of an M rating. I like writing angsty stories, so be prepared for the occasional tear-jerker (or at least my attempt at a tear jerker). I also enjoy writing humor. Most of my stories will center around the relationship between Obi-wan and Anakin (No Slash!).
Reviews are greatly appreciated! I'm a beginning writer, so any constructive criticism is welcome. :)
God Bless You All!

These are the ones that I am currently working on...
Day Off - This is my attempt at a funny story featuring our two favorite Jedi: Obi-wan and Anakin. They happened to get a day off from the war and use the time to engage in some rather humerous adventures, such as forcing down cafeteria food and avoiding the wrath of one Master Windu at all costs. Read at your own risk, for you might be overcome by hurtful fits of laughter resulting in a sore belly... well, that's the intent anyway! :) Updates are few and far between with this one, as I have to be in a certain mood, but until it says "complete" by the summary, I'm not done with it!
Never Gone - My first serious story also featuring Obi-wan, although this one takes place in an AU in the post- Order 66 era. Asajj Ventress has tracked the aging Jedi down and the two attempt to right the wrongs between them while aiding a young rebel force led by none other than Luke Skywalker. All the while, a suitless, healthy Darth Vader is working in the background to find them, while struggling with his own troubled emotions. Anakin might still be alive yet. Also features Kyle Katarn. (very much an AU, though there are are some similarities to the canon).
Year by Year - This is my most recent fic and it will eventually end up with around twenty chapters, one for each year of Luke's life, or each year that Obi-wan spent watching over him, rather. From Luke's infant years to Obi-wan's death on the Death Star, this story offers a glimpse at one day from each year that Obi-wan encounters Luke as the young man grows. Written from Obi-wan's POV, you can expect many angsty situations, family fun, flashbacks to the good old days, and of course I can't leave out Obi-wan's dry humor or sarcasm. :)
Glimpse of Contrast - A collection of drabbles that in no way relate to each other other than they are all part of the Star Wars Universe. These are meant to be read separate from one another. You will probably find quite a few related to Obi-wan and Anakin just because they are my two favorite characters, but I'm trying to expand on that as well. All of them are centered on two different sides of a certain topic which is addressed in the title of that particular chapter. Many will show two different situations involving the same character and others will involve two different characters that either have interacted with each other fairly often or are related in some way. I do take requests, so don't hesitate to PM me!
How the Team Works - Dialogue only! It's something I have a hard time with, but I thought it would be fun to try. It definitely leaves a lot of room open for you guys as the readers to sort of imagine your own version of whatever these two happen to be going through. And by 'these two' of course I mean Obi-wan and Anakin. It takes place on a typical mission for them (Anakin crashes their ship somewhere... anywhere, really. He just always seems to crash somehow...). Each chapter is one stage of that mission. All of the chapters are fairly short, but hopefully full of some gut-busting humor that will leave you in a fit of giggles. Feel free to let me know how I'm doing, because again, this type of writing is new to me. Enjoy!
As you can probably tell by how many stories I currently am working on, I struggle with plot issues. I'm one of those writers that knows how I want to start and how I want to end but can't seem to connect the dots very quickly. I apologize for this and will hopefully improve on that in the coming months, but for now just please bear with me! Pleeeeease!! :)
If you want suggestions or someone to edit PM me and I'll see what I can do! I'm here to help! :D (currently not taking requests due to being back in school)

Right now, I'm updating whichever story I happen to sit down and continue. I apologize for committing to an update schedule, because I obviously can't keep to one. :) Anyways, my stories aren't completed until they say "complete" by them, so I'm definitely not giving up on any of them. Just know that it may be a while, especially now that I'm back in school. Thanks for your patience and for continuing to read and review my fics! God Bless! :)
