    I'm aware that the fanfiction community of Star Wars is not comparable to Harry Potter/Naruto/etc., but I was wondering if anyone was willing to recommend any reads? The only two that I've read that were of a decent length, and were absolutely mind-blowingly well-written were The Shadow of Vader and Fall of the Sith. Both are epic, and the author of Fall of the Sith could have been Mathew Stover.

    All of these are good SW reads. We have within them torture, massive blood loss and dismemberment, death, and Machiavellian scheeming. Enjoy. :D

    You're a god. I remember reading Souls of Demons, and I'm glad I rediscovered it. Some of the others look good too.

    I have come across a few good stories, but two (and the coming sequel, not released yet) really stick out as above and beyond in my mind, two thirds of a three part trilogy by Corana.

    Walking the Sky
    AU. Nine years after becoming a Sith, Darth Vader hears of a supposed Jedi on Tatooine calling himself Anakin Skywalker. He investigates, and finds much, much more than he would have imagined. COMPLETE
    Complete - Star Wars - Fiction Rated: K+ - English - Family/Drama - Chapters: 2 - Words: 11,165

    Feet on the Ground
    AU. Luke Skywalker has grown up his father's apprentice, and can't imagine anything but serving the Emperor. But after one mission, Luke's illusions begin to shatter, and he and his father begin to plan for the future: their future. LV, LM
    Complete - Star Wars - Fiction Rated: T - English - Drama/Romance - Chapters: 8 - Words: 41,796

    Two other good ones that I really liked are more stand alone:

    Fall of the Sith by Souderwan
    Mace Windu makes a critical decision in the Chancellor's Office that changes the outcome of the entire SW saga. Note: This story starts from a point in Matthew Stover's RotS novelization and borrows heavily, at times, from the text in that book.
    Complete - Star Wars - Fiction Rated: T - English - Action/Adventure/Drama - Chapters: 27 - Words: 81,896

    Out of the Shadows by Ash Darklighter
    Post Bakura AU LM. Luke Skywalker struggles to come to terms with the legacy he's been given and the destiny he must have and leaves the Alliance to continue his training.

    Hope you enjoy them.

    I'm glad someone posted Out of the Shadows. I read this thread a couple days ago and forgot to post it. I've been following this fic since its beginning, and I'm really enjoying it. Update rate is rather slow, but I think its well worth it. I think this is a 4.5/5 or so. Characterizations and character development are good, the pace is nice - though the main conflict is perhaps a bit slow in unfolding. I have a feeling this is going to end up being a pretty gargantuan fic when its finished.

    We should categorize SW fanfiction into different categories too. That way when you recommend one, if you include the category, people could see if it tickles their pickle. From what I read, they seem to be the following:

    Darkside AU, post ROTS, with Padme lives, Anakin, does not know she does. Can include either Vader in a suit or not, generally leads to them reconnecting and throwing down Palpatine, becoming Emperor and Empress.

    Alternate Prequel AU, prequel series, something different happens to Anakin, he grows up differently, changing future events (not turning on the dark side, being dark side from day one etc.)

    Vader redemption
    fic, post ROTJ, Vader lives, generally goes back to the Rebellion side, difficulty reconnecting with the kiddos.

    Those are the ones that jump to mind right now. Anyone else have ideas?

    Generally star wars stories are categorized by the era they are set in.This is ripped straight from Wiki btw.



    * The Old Republic (25,000 - 1,000 BBY)

    The Old Republic was the government that united the Star Wars galaxy under the rule of the Galactic Senate. In this era, the Jedi are large-numbered, and serve as guardians of peace and justice. The Tales of the Jedi comics series takes place in this era, chronicling the immense wars fought by the Jedi of old, and the ancient Sith.

    * The Rise of the Empire (1,000 - 0 BBY)

    After the seemingly final defeat of the Sith, the Republic enters a state of complacency. In the waning years of the Republic, the senate was rife with corruption and scandal, and saddled with a bureaucracy so immense that effective governing was nearly impossible. The Sith Lord, Darth Sidious, caused himself to be elected Supreme Chancellor under the guise of Senator Palpatine. He promised to reunite the galaxy under a New Order, and destroyed the majority of the Jedi. The prequel trilogy takes place during this era.

    * The Rebellion (0 BBY - 5 ABY)

    An outcry of resistance begins to spread across the galaxy in protest to the new Empire's tyranny. Cells of Rebellion fight back, and the Galactic Civil War begins. This era begins with the Rebel victory that secured the Death Star plans, and ends a year after the death of the Emperor high over the forest moon of Endor. The Rebellion starts to reform itself into a body of government, first as the Alliance to Restore the Republic, and later the New Republic. The original trilogy takes place during this era.

    * The New Republic (5 ABY - 25 ABY)

    Having defeated the Empire at the Battle of Endor, the Rebel Alliance must now transform itself from a militant resistance force into a functioning galactic government. As Imperial territory is reclaimed, the New Republic suffers growing pains, having to fend off insurrections, Imperial loyalists, and wayward warlords. Also, Luke Skywalker, the last of the Jedi, begins to rebuild the Jedi Order and train new apprentices.

    * The New Jedi Order (25 - 40 ABY)

    The Jedi Knights are now over one hundred strong. The New Republic has signed a peace treaty with the remains of the Empire. The galaxy is finally enjoying a peaceful respite from decades of war. It's at this time that a horrible alien menace invades the Republic from beyond known space. The Yuuzhan Vong lay waste to entire worlds in their scourge, as depicted in the novels of The New Jedi Order.

    * Legacy of the Force (40 - unknown date ABY)

    Having reached peace with the Yuuzhan Vong, the newly formed Galactic Federation of Free Alliance struggles to keep itself working as a single government. But many threats from inside are joined by a danger that comes from the remains of the Dark Side, that threaten to give rise to a new Sith Lord more powerful than Darth Vader or Emperor Palpatine. The new Jedi order created by Luke Skywalker faces a new era as the heirs of the Skywalker legacy grow up. Jacen Solo, perhaps the strongest of the new order, is now Ben Skywalker's master, and has partnered with a nemesis from Luke Skywalker's past; Lumiya, who has promised him only if he becomes the next Sith Lord will he be able to bring peace to the galaxy.

    Revan stories are my favorite, but they always seem to lose steam at the end. They are still a great ride though. Offhand I'd say my two favorite are.

    1. Veil of shadows » by Zerbinetta reviews

    A betrayal. A master plan to save the galaxy from impending doom. A mysterious figure, manipulating the shadows. Memories are fireflies that light the way... but also trickster lights that may lead you astray.

    http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2046246/1/Veil_of_shadows

    2. KOTOR: Destiny's New Path » by Robbie the Phoenix reviews

    A what if. What if it wasn’t Revan on the Bridge when Malak fired on his Master’s ship? Suddenly the Apprentice is betrayed by the Master. Revan then infiltrates the ranks of the Jedi. Revan's mission: turn Bastila to the Dark Side. [Completed]

    I especially like this one because of how Revan plays everyone for complete fools.

    This fic is epic. Absolutely epic. It's a ST/SW cross and one of the first fics I ever read, which is a big part of why I love fan fiction to this day. Slow updates but the author is going to finish it soon.

    Do you know if Star-Crossed is posted anywhere not in a forum format, such as FFN?

    Dynasty by Valerie Vancollie

    Abandoned on the first Death Star, Luke's true identity is revealed and Vader takes him to Coruscant. There he learns about the Empire and the Dark Side even as he hears his best friend has joined the Alliance.

    Complete at over 300k words.

    http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2985379/1/Dynasty

    It's the best Star Wars fic on FF.net (and I went through a massive Star Wars phase for a month or so around Easter 2007 so I've read a few of them).

    I read that one. o.o

    It was utterly lame, if I remember right. Normal, healed Anakin wearing the Envirosuit to instill fear and what not.

    Has anybody read a story that focuses on Palpatine and what he did after he became Emperor?

    I read a story that focused on redeeming Palpatine and I have been stuck in a phase wanting to read more about him. He is a brilliant villain and I like him a lot better than Obi-Wan.
