Onto more fangirlish things-

Remember that bit of writing I mentioned a couple of posts back? 

It’s now up at Checkmated for those of you who might be interested.

My first HP fanfic.  Not sure whether I should feel ashamed of myself or not…

Not really related to your post (although I will make a note to read your HP fic), but I thought I'd just pop in and report back from finally reading 'Family Matters'.

I gorged myself with your fic all morning, not moving from the computer, except to get some food so I wouldn't pass out. No work was achieved, no laundry, no grocery shopping... I think that says it all, doesn't it? ;)

Seriously, I absolutely loved it - so glad that I've finally read it! And it reminded me again of how much I adore the way you write Leia, that mix of strong and proud but also innocent, angry and scared that makes her so human.

Now I'm all frustrated, though, because I had hoped that the series would conclude with 'Family Matters'. Instead Leia is teetering on the edge of becoming a Sith, Palpy has dark and sinister plans for the baby, and Han IS STILL FROZEN! ::wails in despair::

I know you had writers block but, but, but... do you think you'll finish the story at some point?! ::looks hopeful:: Maybe the HP fic has unblocked your writing? :)

Again, the fic is wonderful - it's bound to become one of the stories to be frequently re-read.

Hi merkuria lyn,
Glad to hear you enjoyed Family Matters! Sorry you've had to wait so long for it. And, yes, I'm sorry the story is still not finished.

Heheheh. I should feel bad for promoting such 'negligence' shouldn't I? But I don't! Muahahahahaha! One of our Aussie papers just described HP as a modern Prozac; personally I think fanfiction in general could be given that label. I'm quite sure that if I didn't have fanfic and fanart to escape to, I'd be on full time medication for depression.
I'm glad I was able to provide you with a little escapism, even if it was brief.

I'm really, REALLY hoping that will be the case. If it's any consolation, I've already written 44pages of the next part (which is as yet untitled), so YES, I definately intend to finish the story. I got a bit bogged down with the 'Han recovery' scene. I have rewritten it several times. Maybe my Muse will let me look at it now and I'll finally get it right?

That is so true... It's the ultimate escapism from real-life stress. :)

Oh, I'm really hoping it will unblock the Muse! And you already have 44 pages of the next part?! That is making me very hopeful... :) And curious - and worried. What are you planning for the Han recovery scene?!?

I reread parts of 'Family Matters' yesterday and it struck me how creepy Luke's dream of his son with Leia was. ::shudders at the incest scenario:: And now I'm obviously all worried. That wasn't some kind of premonition, was it?

Anyway, here's to hoping that your Muse will return soon! :)
