Author has written 1 story for Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
Hello, all! I don't have very much free time at the moment (and that is unlikely to change for a while) so I'll be trying to post stories and whatnot, but I won't have much time to update. I'll make you and me both a promise now, I will never abandon a story. It may take an insanely long amount of time to get it done, but get it done I will.
Okay, now on to me!

Now on to the fun of telling you what I think about pairings:
Star Wars Accepted:
AnakinxAhsoka (well you see, it depends how this is done, in an AU where Anakin isn't with Padme and Ahsoka and Anakin are closer in age... yes, I've seen it done well when the proper changes were made)
AhsokaxGalen (sigh, if only they existed together, but we've got Lux for that)
AhsokaxVader (I've been reading a lot of these lately, I've become addicted! But I think this is another half-accepted, half-unaccepted one)
Obi-WanxSatine (the pairing I adore)
Obi-WanxVentress (it can work!)
Star Wars Not Accepted:
AnakinxAhsoka (not under the aforementioned circumstances)
AhsokaxRex (I just don't like it! okay?)
AhsokaxGrievous (just no)
AhsokaxVader (if it's not done right)
AhsokaxObi-Wan (I thought he belongs with Satine?)
Obi-WanxLuminara (this one's actually a maybe)
MacexAnyone (he actually repels ... romance, see I can't even put the word near him)
BarrissxCody (but I can be swayed...)
YodaxAnyone (again, I can't even imagine him breaking the code)
SokkaxAzula (under the right circumstances)
Avatar Not Accepted:
And I don't read any GuyxGuy or GirlxGirl
That's it for now, but I think I'm going to go find some of those copy/paste things that I absolutely adore!
If you know the number of the garbage masher maintenance hatch in A New Hope, copy and paste this into your profile. (3263827!)
You know you're obsessed with Star Wars when...

... you refer to children as 'younglings,' elevators as 'turbolifts,' and bathrooms as 'refreshers.'
... you have looked for Ewoks when entering a wooded area.
... you address your teachers as "Master."
... you have attempted to use a glowstick as a miniature weapon.
... when an object was out of your reach, you have extended your hand toward it and expected it to come to you.
... you wave you hand in front of you to open automatic doors.
... you have quoted lines from the Star Wars movies unintentionally.
... you have ever been surprised to open a refrigerator and find that the milk is not blue.

... you have painted or drawn a picture in which there are at least two suns in the sky.

This is a story about God. Read if you believe in him, and read even if you don't.
A teenage girl about 17 named Diane had gone to visit some friends one evening and time passed quickly as each shared their various experiences of the past year. She ended up staying longer than planned, and had to walk home alone. She wasn't afraid because it was a small town and she lived only a few blocks away.
As she walked along under the tall elm trees, Diane asked God to keep her safe from harm and danger. When she reached the alley, which was a short cut to her house, she decided to take it. However, halfway down the alley she noticed a man standing at the end as though he were waiting for her. She became uneasy and began to pray, asking for God's protection. Instantly a comforting feeling of quietness and security wrapped round her, she felt as though someone was walking with her. When she reached the end of the alley, she walked right past the man and arrived home safely.
The following day, she read in the newspaper that a young girl had been attacked in the same alley just twenty minutes after she had been there. Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it could have been her, she began to weep. Thanking the Lord for her safety and to help this young woman, she decided to go to the police station. She felt she could recognize the man, so she told them her story. The police asked her if she would be willing to look at a lineup to see if she could identify him. She agreed and immediately pointed out the man she had seen in the alley the night before. When the man was told he had been identified, he immediately broke down and confessed. The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there was anything they could do for her. She asked if they would ask the man one question. Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her. When the policeman asked him, he answered, "Because she wasn't alone. She had two tall men walking on either side of her." Amazingly, whether you believe or not, you're never alone. Did you know that 98 of teenagers will not stand up for God, and 93 of the people that read this won’t repost it?
Re-post this if you truly believe in God.
Every abortion is...
...One more heart that was stopped.
...Two more eyes that will never see.
...Two more hands that will never touch.
...Two more legs that will never run.
...One more mouth that will never speak.
Life is a gift.
Re-post this if you are against abortion.
The Little Girl
There was an atheist couple who had a daughter. The couple never told their daughter anything about the Lord.
One night, when the little girl was five years old, the parents fought with each other and the dad shot the mom, right in front of the child. Then, the dad shot himself. The little girl watched it all.
She was sent to a foster home. The foster mother was a Christian and took the child to church. On the first day of Sunday School, the foster mother told the teacher that the girl had never heard of Jesus, and to have patience with her. The teacher held up a picture of Jesus and said, "Does anyone know who this is?"
The little girl said, "I do. That's the man who was holding me the night my parents died."

Ah, some of these things really make me chuckle. I'll add more later.
I refuse to have a battle of wits with an unarmed opponent.
Smile - it confuses the enemy.
It's you and me versus the world... we attack at dawn.
And now I can say with certainty instead of paranoia that the world is out to get me.
Always forgive your enemies. Nothing annoys them more.
Strength comes in numbers but victory comes with cleverness.
Stupidity killed the cat. Curiosity was framed.
They say "Guns don't kill people, people kill people." Well I think the guns help. If you stood there and yelled BANG, I don't think you'd kill too many people.
Many writers don't know the difference between 'your' and 'you're.' If you happen to understand this mundanely ridiculous fact, copy and paste this into your profile.
