1. A little bit about myself...
Hello. I'm a 41 year old Data Analyst, married with 2 children. When I turned 40, I threw a Pirate and Sexy Wench party. I build props and costumes, and am a Sandtrooper in the 501st Legion.

2. My favorite StarWars characters, couples, situations!
Vader, Kenobi - Guilt, fueling anger and pain soaked regret.

3. OT or PT?
OT for me, thank you. But I try to embrace the PT for the value of the information revealed, and how it enhances the OT.

4. Writer or Reader or both?
Both!!!

5. What types of fics do you like to write and/or read?
I like psychological thrillers and sci fi. I write the same, but also dabble in creative, Interpretive Writing

Things I like other than StarWars, if such things exist.
Blade Runner, LOST, The NEW Batman film series, Cinema Paradiso, 300, Sarah Connor Chronicles

7. How did you find SWFF?
I chose the red pill instead of the blue one

8. Where did this user name come from?

From Harrison Ford's character in Blade Runner.


A few more points of interest:

The Low-Down
I think. Sometimes inside the box dreaming of what's outside it, sometimes outside the box pondering what's inside. This dreaming and pondering is what stretches our human limits and expands where we can go.

My Muse
Elusive . . . sharp as a crack of thunder, angry as a woman scorned, passionate as a breathless lover, blinding as the glint on the edge of a sharp blade.

In My Spare Time
Writing, Art, Reading, Droid-Building (full scale R2 unit), Music

Guilty Pleasures
Iced Coffee, Time spent in the rain with no umbrella, A really good cheesburger, Guinness

Why You Should Check Out My Stuff
I think you'll like it. When I submit something, I have worked hard on it to make it the best I can offer. I am always open to constructive criticism and praise equally.



I've been writing on The Sandtrooper's Story (In the EMPIRE Section) for almost 3 years. I'll post up a little at a time, and would love your feedback. Smile

Thanks for the kind welcome. Smile

Finding a site COMPLETELY devoted to Star Wars fanfiction is really nice. I feel lucky to have found a community that all knows the characters, settings, universe in which my work exists. Likewise, I am at home with the setting for the works of others. Thank you for hosting this wonderful place.

Part I of my story has 10 total chapters that I will post up a little at a time. I don't want to overwhelm anyone.

Part II
has 18 chapters so far, and is still going. I have PDF's of each chapter at the very beginning of each chapter in case it is easier for someone to simply download and carry it away with them. Smile

Welcome, Deckard! Great to have you here! I'm at work now (baaaaad ginchy) but I will be checking out your story as soon as I can. I took a quick peek and love the pictures you're using to help tell the story! You've been writing it for 3 years? That's amazing! Very Happy

Welcome to the Insanity

Thanks for the welcome Ginchy. Yeah, 3 years . . . researching ideas, characters, finding pics on the web to help tell the story, writing a little on breaks and lunches, stealing time late at night when my kids and wife were asleep.

It has been a long time, mainly because I don't get a lot of uninterrupted time to just think and work. The continuity gets broken, and I have to continually re-start when I return to it.

I hope you like it. It is a "B-Camera" perspective on the story we all know. I try very hard to adhere to canon while telling my own story.

Welcome!! Glad you've found SWFF!

Droid building, eh? I'm always impressed by people who have the patience for that, I'm one of those 'chuck the instructions' people. Does your R2 move and beep? Can he serve drinks to your party guests a la ROTJ?

He will move and beep eventually, as time and cash allow.

The short term plan is to get him standing, dome spinning, lights and sound.
The Long term plan is full R/C movement, doors opening, etc.

A drink tray add-on is a possibility, but again is all about the cash and/or time you have to put into it.

I degreased and primed all of the steel feet last night. I don't have pics of that process, but here are a few recent ones:

I love it! Very Happy

Here at the hospital I work at there are two robots who run samples between labs through a maze of buildings. They even take the elevator by themselves! Everytime I see them I wish they'd make some sort of Artoo type noise. They look like squat little filing cabinets. LOL

Hello, let me introduce myself...

1. A little bit about myself...
Well, I'm a terminal student (means I can't get enough college and so I'm still there) I have two beautiful boys ages 11 and 4 (Ian and Noah) I'm an avid costumer and play around in the world of fan fic.

2. My favorite StarWars characters, couples, situations!
Obi-Wan, Anakin, Dooku, Palpy... humor, it starts out as something serious but then the funny creeps in...
Sometimes I venture into the adult areas of fan fic... then it would be Siri/Obi-Wan and every now and then something slashy comes out...

3. OT or PT?
Well, I like both with a little bit of AU thrown in for fun...

4. Writer or Reader or both?
Both!!!

5. What types of fics do you like to write and/or read?
I'll read anything (once) and mostly I write humor or angst...

6. Things I like other than StarWars, if such things exist.
Harry Potter, Twilight saga, Star Trek (gasp), Dr. Who,

7. How did you find SWFF?
I blame JediTrace... It's all her fault..

8. Where did this user name come from?
One of my many costumes is a Gamorrean Guard from ROtJ
