Housekeeping post. All of my outstanding fanfiction claims are now complete (Go me.)

I've decided to make a single index post instead of different ones for each year because it's easier for me to see if there are links instead of just the collected prompts.

I don't know if I'll be making new fanfic claims this year or not; original project is taking priority right now.

These links are to the claim tables. Don't try to read the fics in the order they appear on the tables. Most of them are chapters from larger works. Use the tags or links in my profiles.

Welcome to the online home of Lionchilde, one half of the infamous Evil Genius Council. This post is pinned. Scroll down to view updates on my fiction, graphic art endeavors, occasional rambles, and (very rarely) my personal life.

You can also find a lot of this information on my sidebar, but not all because I like to keep it somewhat cohesive and simple to navigate. Since my profile page is a bit...shall we say...eccentric in style, I decided to make a post that might give people a hint about what actually goes on here and where to find the important stuff. Or possibly to run away. This is your last warning. Mwhahahahaha.

Currently, my layout is by fruitstyle. The header is by me. If you don't know what the text refers to, you probably don't want to hear the long explantion.






Council Law
This journal is governed by The Evil Genius Council and does not conform to the normal rules of society, the internet, or the universe. Council Law is as follows.

Respect others and respect yourself. If you cannot disagree without being rude, don't post a comment.

COMMENT if you download or read something. It helps us know what is of interest to you. It's not necessary to comment on every post, but an occassional "Hey, nice set of updates" is appreciated.

Visit so_out_of_icons to view Lionchilde's graphics that are for use by other users. This journal was created for me to monitor my own growth and there are older posts here that I would prefer people not to snag from.

DO NOT re-upload Aruna7's fanvids to YouTube. Epecially do not re-edit her openings and call them your work.

DO NOT post Lionchilde's graphics as your own. People will know anyway and you will be mocked mercilessly.

There will be no fandom bashing.
Similarly, ABSOLUTELY NO Lucas bashing. We don't always agree with his decisions, but Star Wars is his baby. If you don't like his decisions or his direction, make up your own universe and film your own movies.

You were a newbie once too. No matter how much you know about your fandom, there will be someone somewhere who knows more than you.

Violations of Council Law are punishable by frying pan and mockery.

Renewal prev 2

I know that I promised a fic update sometime in July. It is coming. I have had chronic tendinitis in both arms and I'm relying on text to speech software to make my blog posts and do any writing. I have another doctors appointment for it on 18 November. I still don't have a regular beta reader, but lhinneill has been filling in. There's a lot more beta-ing involved when using dictation software. Let's just say I have a lot done on Force Heritage, but it isn't all done in chronological order. I hope to start getting things up sometime this month.

Anyway, on to the potentially bad news. As most of you know, Aruna7 is no longer active on LiveJournal or Dreamwidth. Shipper Asylum was a collaborative effort between the two of us, and it is a lot to manage for me by myself. I don't get on LJ very much anymore because the all white post page tends to give me migraines.

I'm hoping that someone would be willing to help me managing the links lists, table of contents chapters, and various other housekeeping tasks on this community. Otherwise, I'm afraid that I am going to have to stop updating Shipper Asylum.

All of the stories will remain online, and whatever happens I will continue to update them on either fanfiction.net or AO3.

If you think you could help me out, please leave a comment on this post or PM me. Thanks a lot.

Hello F-list! I know that I promised a fic update sometime in July. It is coming. I have had chronic tendinitis in both arms and I'm relying on text to speech software to make my blog posts and do any writing. I have another doctors appointment for it on 18 November. I still don't have a regular beta reader, but [profile] stargatefangurl has been filling in. There's a lot more beta-ing involved when using dictation software. Let's just say I have a lot done on Force Heritage, but it isn't all done in chronological order. I hope to start getting things up sometime this month.

Title: Force Heritage: A Prelude To the Kenobi Way
Chapter Number: 4
Author: Lionchilde
Summary: "Midquel" to my Obidala epic One Path. With Padme and Obi Wan in Mos Eisley, the children face a new danger in the desert.
Rating: PG
Genre: Gen/Some romance
Pairings/Characters: Obidala, Luke, Anakin Kenobi, mention of Leia and Bail Organa--possible appearances from them in later chapters.
A/N: Post Clone Wars era AU in an continuity with One Path| Notes on The Kenobi Way series can be found here.| Notes and previous chapters of Force Heritage can be found here.

Chapter 4 is here. I'd appreciate if anyone has the time to read my special note/ranmble below.

Special note:

Yes, I am back. This is a real update. Your eyes are not deceiving you.

After two long years, I am finally on the track to better health. My migraine headaches are more controlled for the time being, and I will be able to have health insurance starting in October, so hopefully things will continue to improve with my other stuff.
I am not going to be able to update as frequently as I used to-I'm wearing wrist braces on both arms and have to be careful of how much I type. This chapter took about a month to finish and another couple of weeks to get beta'd. So you can probably expect updates every six weeks or so. No more chapters every week like I did with One Path.

I've been out of fandom so long I'm not sure who's still active. I'm looking for a few people familiar with One Path to act as pre-publication readers. Basically, you get the chapters a week in advance of anyone else in exchange for answering a few questions and generally telling me what you think. You don't have to do detailed beta edits, but I'd be thrilled if one or two people might volunteer for that.

A general note about my Star Wars writing and the One Path universe.

My creative partner for this universe/storyline has left livejournal and pared back her involvements in fandom due to other commitments and needs in her life. She's still involved but may not be able to contribute as much to the content of the stories. I'm not as familiar with the EU as she is (and don't like a lot of it) so I'm changing my approach to this story and future content in this 'verse. Since we're not covering the film saga and this is an alternate universe storyline, I'm going to have details that may not match the EU. I don't have the time or interest to research every EU character and plotline. Apologies to anyone who is a fan of the EU; you're just not going to find much of it in my verse. I'll be including a handful of characters who've already been mentioned in One Path (like Mara Jade and Talon Karrde) but in other cases, the characters' backgrounds may be pretty different or they just won't appear.

Now on to notes regarding this story specific chapter.

1. It's been a few years since I wrote in this verse, so if you notice any drastic changes in my writing style, that's why. I'm doing my best to keep it consistent.
2. We briefly mention in One Path that the Kenobi family built a house on the Lars' property. The house is not underground the way the main homestead living space is. The Kenobis and the Lars' didn't have the resources to do that. Most of what I write about the layout of the farm and how it's set up are conjecture based on a few references from the films, what little I could find on Wookiepedia and things I've picked up from reading about desert ecology in Frank Herbert's Dune novels. I have no idea if the EU ever explains moisture farming in detail, so I'm making stuff up and doing my best to make sure it's plausible.
3. What the boys do in this chapter is based on a combination of Dune elements and a Force technique I once read about in an early EU novel. Extra points if you spot the refs.

Before anyone asks: I'm sorry, I don't know when I'll be getting back to Land and Sky or my Stargate stories. I WILL. I promise. Thanks for your continued patience.
