A few words on why you voted the way you did might also help. :)

I'm in no position to answer that poll, though I must say the idea of a fic by you and Mr Black is intriguing! :) Got your e-mail. I'll get back to you some time today.

LOL!

Opinions! I have opinions! :D

Okay, well, natch, I had to wail for some Of Like Mind, because it's about my favorite WIP of anyone's at the moment, and is utterly amazing. Also my own Dooku and Jocasta have been giving me endless woe, and I fully expect you to inspire me. :P ;)

Obi-Wan drabbles too, because I adore them.

Founding Pandæmonium sounds altogether intriguing, and I confess a quiet thrill upon reading of it. :D

And I voted for Mara Jade spy Alias bunny, because it sounded a lot like coolness. I suspect it of rocking. :)

Good luck with these!!

*blushes* What a nice thing to say! And such a strong argument for, too. :D I also suspect the Mara Jade spy Alias bunny would be cool... in the hands of another writer :p, but hopefully, I can make it a little exciting? :D

Good luck with these!!

Thanks!

Polls are coooool.

Truthfully, I rather you do none of the above and help us with a few contributions to WQGL.
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: September 30th, 2006 04:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
That's a different perspective! :D I'd love to do more on the round-robin, you know that... but you also know how unreliable I was before. :(
knight_ander From: knight_ander Date: September 30th, 2006 05:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well, we're only at a rate of one update per month, so you wouldn't be the only "unreliable" one.

To quote President Bartlett on The West Wing, "Join the club, we had jackets made." :p
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: October 1st, 2006 09:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well... I'll think about it. But I can't make any promises. ::sigh:: I really wish there were machines that could write for us...

Same here.

It was hard to choose between refugee & seeds of Darkness.

moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: September 30th, 2006 04:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well if it helps, Refuge is a very old plot bunny of mine... one of my ideas for the AotC Missing Moments threatre. Seed (not seeds) of Darkness is a newer one, and is more Palpatine-centric than anything I've ever written...

Darling, I'd vote, but I'm probably kind of prejudiced. *hugs* I'm so glad you're back from your trip safely! EMAIL ME! ^_~

I WILL!
P.S. Prejudice is exactly what I'm looking for. *g*

I would adore you forever if you posted some more of Kaleidoscope and Of Like Mind. I can't begin to describe how wonderful those stories are. :)

It's Fialleril from ff.net, by the way. But I'm sure you already guessed that. ;)
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: October 2nd, 2006 11:04 am (UTC) (Link)
Yes, I just did! Hi! *waves* I didn't know you had lj.

Well, it turns out that I had a looong weekend (Monday's a holiday), so I have a chance to work on 2 stories after all. :D
fialleril From: fialleril Date: October 2nd, 2006 07:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
*waves back* Yup, I'm a newbie. :D As you can probably tell...

Oh, I so envy your long weekend! *sighs* I can't wait to see what you come up with!

By the way, would you mind if I friend you?
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: October 3rd, 2006 06:55 am (UTC) (Link)
Not at all! I'll friend you right back. :D
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: October 2nd, 2006 11:09 am (UTC) (Link)
Er... did you actually vote?
fialleril From: fialleril Date: October 2nd, 2006 07:51 pm (UTC) (Link)
*smacks forehead* Um, all right, now I did. Sorry about that! Don't know where my mind was...

I had to vote for the sake of seeing what happens next in Kaleidoscope ;^)

It was hard to choose between the first three novel sized plot bunnies. I almost voted for the one about Dooku, but he doesn't intrigue me as much as other Star Wars characters...possibly because we don't know as much about him. I also almost voted for the AU TPM story, but I kept wondering if 9-yr-old Anakin died if he wasn't able to blow up the droid control ship, and the thought depressed me (I know, I'm a wuss, you caught me). Well, anyway, I ended up voting for the one about Luke, but feel free to count my vote for either of those three, as they all sound interesting.
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: October 5th, 2006 03:33 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oops. *blush* Thought I had replied you.

Well you got your wish with Kaleidoscope. *g* Thanks especially for voting for Seed of Darkness. It was feeling lonely. :p
vanimy From: vanimy Date: October 5th, 2006 01:16 pm (UTC) (Link)
I feel like I've voted for everything... :P I think I voted for Thwarted fate in priority because you left us hanging and I so love this story...

But those bunnies looked great, especially the Agatha Christie/DH one dealing with A/P. It really intrigued me. :D
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: October 5th, 2006 03:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
Don't you worry about Thwarted Fate. I had a Yah! moment with it over the weekend. *g*
