Trying to squeeze in Day Two of [profile] womenlovefest before heading off to an actually love fest (a wedding) this evening.

Day One was Vala (more on her later). For Day Two, I want to share some thoughts on (and fun content for) Mara Jade...

Oh, Mara. Mara is one of those characters who doesn't suffer from fandom hate so much as she suffers from maybe a little too much fandom love. The problem? It's often not good, healthy, well-rounded love. It's creepy boyfriend who puts you on a pedestal, swears that you're perfect, and is violently disappointed when it turns out you're really only human love. It's weird freshman year roommate who steals your clothes, cuts her hair just like yours, and secretly wants to sleep with your boyfriend love.

That said, I love Mara. (Hopefully more in the good way than the bad way, at least most of the time...)

(Testing out this whole cross-posting thing...)

So I totally lied. I have not, in fact, finished Part 7 of Percy Weasley: Rogue Demon Hunter. What I've done instead is write 65 pages of Iteration. This is actually exactly what happened back at Christmastime with PW:RDH. I had some time off work, my husband was working, I didn't have any obligations, etc., so I sat down and wrote about 70 pages of the most pivotal plot and character stuff. All I've been doing since then is filling in the blanks -- which makes the whole process a million times easier for me versus staring down a bunch of blank, empty chapters with only a vague outline as my guide. So now I feel slightly more confident that both of these pieces might actually see the light of day again.

What this means is that sometime in the not too distant future, I'll be in the market for someone who knows Star Wars (and specifically the EU) to take a look at the first few chapters of this beast and tell me if I've totally gone off the reservation. (Actually, I know I'm completely off the res with this one. It puts the "augh!" in "AU." What I really want to know is whether it works.)

That said, I like this fic primarily because it lets me indulge my love for sidekicks and unlikely heroes, and it's proven to have possibly the best fic 'soundtrack' of all time... )
