Alderaan

Another Rasla sonnet, from the hard-drive cleanup – I had planned to post this when we wrote it, but apparently didn’t.  My regulars should be able to hazard a guess as to general time of composition. The title has to … Continue reading

Inheritance – War Stories Epilogue

I am aware that little of fiction has been published lately.  I am working on this but unfortunately the pipeline got a little messy with War Stories and there are currently three projects jostling for priority.  One of them is nearly … Continue reading

War Stories – ‘Book Launch’

Hello all – we have News. First: Helena and a couple of hardworking volunteers have been working very rapidly indeed to get War Stories on the Shadows blog to match the finalized, proofed, edited version.  This explains the mysterious disappearance of various bits of … Continue reading

War Stories – 32

Okay, here goes nothing.  Ladies and gentlemen, this is the final chapter of War Stories qua War Stories.  I have every intention of making the whole darn thing, including a bonus epilogue chapter I wrote just for the heck of it, available for … Continue reading

War Stories – 31

I have paid to publish this, with a very dreary two hours on Khan Academy’s art history department and a more thorough explanation of the Ghent and Merode Altarpieces than I ever wished to hear. On the other hand… have some more story! … Continue reading

War Stories – 30

This one hurt to write, and we argued a lot along the way.  That was your fair warning. On the other hand, I wrote bits of it while sitting next to a rock pool looking at limpets and little fluffy blue … Continue reading

War Stories – 29

And we are back again! Thank you all so much for your patience and general bearing-with! It’s early in July, right when I said I’d be back.  I wanted this up before the Fourth, because all the Americans will be super-busy … Continue reading

War Stories – 28

Whew!  Sorry it’s taken so long to get here – I’ve been run off my fingers (because typing, y’know, not actually literally running) with coursework, and TV show prep again, and getting my costume ready to apply to the Rebel … Continue reading

War Stories – 27

We’re having a wee bit of a difficult week over here and it’s showing, I’m afraid. Some Mando’a – because I couldn’t not – a tired joke revitalized, all my legal research finally getting a use, and a bit of … Continue reading

War Stories – 26

Okay, can y’all check the date at the post head before leaping down my throat next time?  I’ve gone back and doctored it so nobody gets lost following up later. Back to the real story. Ladies (and gentlemen if there are any of … Continue reading

War Stories APRIL 1ST

Please note that this is not the real Chapter 26 – this was Against the Shadows‘ April Fool’s Day stunt for 2016, designed to look like a distinctly un-Star-Wars ending to the story. The real Chapter 26 – which is, by the way, neither the last … Continue reading

War Stories – 25

I have been accused of going off on side-stories.  I am wounded.  That is exactly what I have been doing.  However, as you will find shortly, the Dex side-story – which I freely confess to working in much earlier as a safety-net I … Continue reading

War Stories – 24

Some missions, some memories, and someone else dies. Please note that while the ‘pretty rock’ from a waterfall pool is quite real and substantial (white marble, matte finish, beautifully rounded – I picked one Qui-Gon would approve of), the falling-in part is not.  There … Continue reading

War Stories – 23

And here we all are again.  Journal entries and a sprinkling of Mando’a. Sorry for the delay – I’m currently back at college, blue-haired, and giving Qui-Gon as much time as I can spare, which isn’t a great deal and usually happens on … Continue reading

War Stories – 22

Please note that I am and have been using the Galactic Standard Calendar for all calculations of time. (i.e. one year consists of three weeks, three days, and ten months, each month consisting of seven weeks of five days: thirty-five days a … Continue reading

War Stories – 21

Sorry, it’s been a while, and I’ve been working silly hours and reading silly things in between times instead of being Useful and Productive.  Bad writer.  However.  Life goes on, for our favorite Jedi as well as for me.  Sarah… … Continue reading

War Stories – 20

The most recent relevant trial transcripts I could get date back to 1920s New York.  A lot of that I’m just not comfortable repeating, so we’re not really focusing on the trial today except as backdrop. And… Obi-Wan.  Thank you, my … Continue reading

War Stories – 19

So yeah, been a while – sorry about that.  However! Chapter 19! In which we burn the false-flag operation that was busy lulling Sarah into a false sense of security and resolution, and get our angst back on. This one’s rather like … Continue reading

War Stories – 18

So you remember how I said a while ago that the whole problem was academic and cerebral?  I didn’t lie… I just found out later that that isn’t exactly true. Sit tight, we are going to do an ancient and well-respected … Continue reading

Brief Real Life update: I got Chrome!  After months of ‘your browser is not supported’, I finally have my WordPress reader back!  (I have to reeducate the spell-checker.)  Also, I am now employed, so War Stories might end up slamming the … Continue reading

War Stories – 16

A heaping tablespoon of cute.  Because life is chizzk and then you die, and there ain’t no harm in sweetening it where you can. And hot chocolate, despite objections at this end – I’m figuring the Galaxy is big enough … Continue reading

War Stories – 15

In which Nasriel has a horrible day, we dabble in The Law, I borrow a quote from Erin, and Kijé Yenseh breaks the rules. Yes, Sarah, I am working on a way to introduce your suggestion of part 14.  At … Continue reading

War Stories – 14

A meditation on solitude, some explanations, a nightmare I’m sure to have for weeks, and we delay deploying The Law until we can find the appropriate reference books in the detritus of a recent reshuffle.  I think they might be in the cellar… And … Continue reading

War Stories – 13

Due to popular demand (ha ha ha)… another chapter drawn from Nasriel’s journal. At least three of the family are not having a good day, and that’s not even counting Council members.  Something we’d all forgotten about pops back up, and Qui-Gon’s … Continue reading

War Stories – 12

Many thanks to sarahtps for the dragon’s teeth.  We try not to disappoint. A quick question, as there is some flexibility with the format of the next part: would readers prefer Chapter 13 to continue in third-person following Qui-Gon, or would … Continue reading
