    I don't know why but I can't help but laugh at you when you say that.

    Cease and desist.

    It's not funny.

    It never was funny.

    It never will be funny.

    Star Wars Tales did it first anyway.

    This is why we can't have nice things.

    Darth Jar-Jar is best Sith. Stop hatin' cuz you can't be that cool.

    Slightly more seriously, I'm honestly kinda in the same boat as Download. Part of me is very surprised nobody's taken that idea and run with it yet. It's got lots of potential for both crack and for a more serious story.

    I'm the guy that doesn't get why everyone hates on Jar-Jar so much though, so whatever.

    I didn't even care that much about Jar Jar until people started forcing him on the rest of us, like he was the best/funniest thing ever. From then on, it developed into a strong dislike for the character in general.

    It didn't help either that episodes of TCW that involved him to a greater degree were just plain awful.

    Not exactly what you guys want, but did anyone here try Darths and Droids?

    It's an RPG screencap comic, inspired by DM of the Rings, in which a bunch of roleplayers, in a world where Star Wars doesn't exist, play Star Wars as if it was a D&D esque setting, with the players playing different characters, and quite often derail the plot of the DM.

    It's funny, interesting, has some pretty cool ideas and it made Jar Jar awesome (by having him be played by the imaginative kid sister of one of the players). Has been running for nearly a decade, I think. Haven't been keeping up for a year or two or so now but only because I kinda got distracted by Worm. Should catch up to the newer chapters.

    They started at episode 1 and are currently in episode 6. Who knows, they might even attempt episode 7.

    I don't know if this has been asked yet but... any decent TFA related fics out there that aren't centered around trashy romance?

    Unfortunately no.

    Most fics seem to be filled with shoehorned Rey/Kylo-Ren (aren't they cousins?) and awful Rey/Finn.

    It hasn't been confirmed but I expect they're cousins.

    Yep, and all of it is shit.

    I came to read about space battles and aliens, not romance.

    Here is a Peggy Sue story that's not too bad. No shipping so far.

    Saw this on SB and found it a decent time-waster:

    A New Jedi in an Old Republic

    The premise is quite simple: Kyle Katarn and Jan Ors time-travel to the start of the Clone Wars, post-Battle of Geonosis.

    Will I be able to enjoy this given that I know nothing about Kyle Katarn or anything really about events from the Old EU post-ROTJ?

    Pretty much. The way he's portrayed, he could be "any future traveler into the past" type character that goes to the beginning of the clone wars. He doesn't throw "my way of the Force is better than yours" and "all of you are stupid" around too much, so far. It's a decent time waster.

    Just stay away from the discussion between chapters. It's mostly about beards and technical specs of every single Republic ship in existence, how great they are and how much they suck.

    It's a decent time waster, but still a bit of a fix/stomp fic. If you go into this without any big expectations, you should have a bit of fun.

    >Meetra Surik

    What is this nonsense? Where is the Jedi Jesus that we all know and love?

    Am I correct in assuming that this fic borrows heavily on the lore from Bioware's MMO?

    Meetra Surik is the name of the Jedi Exile from KOTOR 2.

    It's the name Bioware made up for TOR (while also completely butchering the Exile), so Odran's right.

    I could probably fire up KotOR II right now and use that random name generator to come up with a better name.
