Sorry, man. Always been a cowboys fan first and foremost. But I've always liked the fins too - really wanted Dan Marino to win a Super Bowl...

Thanks for the welcomes everyone!

And yeah, I noticed this forum did appear a little light in the 'guy' department - of course that seems to be the case no matter what fanfic site you go to.

And I figured Rigil could use a little help to balance things out. Razz

Well I've been lurking around on here for a while now but haven't posted much. Anyway here goes.

Answer the following questions below to introduce yourself to the boards! Don't be shy!!

1. A little bit about myself...
I'm 31 and a First Class Gunnersmate in the Coast Guard (11yrs in). Stationed in western Washington for now. I have a wife, no kids yet. Working on the Airborne Use of Force program. (We're going to be putting guns on our Helos for Homeland Security missions now, have been for counter narcotics for a few years)

2. My favorite StarWars characters, couples, situations!
L/M FTW! Just about anything L/M, though I do like some of well written fics that have everyone in them.

3. OT or PT?
More EU than either OT/PT. My main problem with the PT is Lucas. The man couldn't direct his way out of a wet paper bag. Great imagination, he just needs to be a little more hands off once the camera's start rolling.

4. Writer or Reader or both?
Reader. I've flirted with the idea of writing but I'm not that creative a thinker and would feel obligated to learn how to put a story together etc (instead of just winging it) and I just don't have the inclination.

5. What types of fics do you like to write and/or read?
Most anything with L/M (even the smut) and or most anything if it's well written and entertaining.

6. Things I like other than StarWars, if such things exist. Wink
First and foremost above Star Wars (gasp! It's true!) is motorcycles. Racing (MotoGP, WSBK, AMA[if they get their s#!t together], riding (I have two European Streetfighters). Video games (COD4 for now, waiting for TFU). Shooting guns on the gov'ts dime. The most TV I watch anymore is the Food Network which is weird as I don't cook but I find some of it entertaining. Especially Alton Brown and his shows Good Eats and Feasting on Asphalt. Annoying my wife.

7. How did you find SWFF?
Link from someone over on TFN.

8. [FILL IN YOUR OWN QUESTION HERE - HAVE FUN WITH IT]
Um, did I mention I'm not a creative thinker?

Thanks for the welcome! TTT were the first Star Wars Books I read and I've loved Mara ever since. I wish they (L/M) would have gotten together after TTT and was disappointed when they didn't and I kept looking for her to pop up in every subsequent novel. Didn't care for L/C, though when Mara and Callista ran into each other on Yavin and had their little "conversation" I knew Callista was jealous and Mara was interested in Luke. I was so happy for the HoT duology that I was able to overlook the lack of necessary mush to make their burgeoning relationship seem less forced (or maybe I overlooked it because I'm a guy). Then of course came that shameful excuse for a novel "Sacrifice", I've commented about that in another thread in this board and I won't get into it here. Suffice to say I was very unhappy and though I already disliked Traviss' writing (Mando worship/Jedi bashing) I positively loathed her (and the other two LoTF writers and DR) after that book.

I thought I did this, but it appears I didn't... oops... Oh, and this is DaenaBenjen42 from TF.N... Smile


1. A little bit about myself...

I live in Northern California in a small town, I'm 27, and am a certified Phlebotomist. That's right... I'm a certified vampire...

2. My favorite StarWars characters, couples, situations!

L/M, romance, and apparently, though I didn't intend it: angst mixed in with that romance...

3. OT or PT?

OT for me, thank you.

4. Writer or Reader or both?

Both!!!

5. What types of fics do you like to write and/or read?

I'll read everything, but I've been reading L/M more often than not...

6. Things I like other than StarWars, if such things exist.

Animorphs, Smallville, the Olympic Games (I must love them to record them for two entire weeks straight...), Swimming, NCIS... Quantum Leap, and some other ones I'm forgetting...

7. How did you find SWFF?

Link in ginchy's profile. Yes, really. Smile

8. Where did this user name come from?


Someone called the Wave Rangers the Wave Riders in a review, and I liked it so much I just had to use it somewhere...


You guys really do have neat smilies over here. Liked this one: Give Me Chocolate!
