In your own space, post a rec for fannish spaces and resources - comms, challenges, twitters, tumblrs, etc. Tell us about where you hang out. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I mostly hang out on Reddit for this sort of stuff. Stuff like r/stephenking is pretty awesome, along with r/horror. For Stephen King and/or horror fans on my f-list, those are pretty awesome places to look. Reddit in general I say is pretty good for this stuff, as you can type in just about anything fannish and there's probably a subreddit for it. And Dreamwidth is pretty good for this stuff too. There was also the LJ group kotor_legends, although unfortunately I think it's abandoned. I miss that comm. It was just really neat talking KOTOR with other people.

And there will probably be more communities as I get to them. I just realized I haven't been hanging out in many fannish communities as of late. Maybe it's time to change that.

There are quite a few things that meant a lot to me in fandom, but I remember that in 2011, just discussing stuff like KOTOR with [personal profile] darth_eldritch and many others was one of my favorite memories. I think there was something about just discussing the matter of KOTOR, our favorite characters, finding fellow fans, and getting to rant about the retcons that Dark Horse and Bioware were making (plus having some appreciation for the minor characters like Lieutenant Grenn) that was just really fun. I admit I miss those days, and it's one of those reasons I am admittedly sad about KOTOR being made non-canon. There are admittedly things in the old Legendsverse that I'm glad aren't canon anymore, but KOTOR I am actually sad is noncanonical. Then again, I think not all hope is lost -- they did bring back Thrawn, so hopefully, a KOTOR resurrection is not too far in the distant future. (Plus, the design of Kylo's armor had to come from somewhere. It's not completely like Revan's but it shows some influences)

But yeah, just chatting about KOTOR, hanging out at kotor_legends, writing KOTOR fanfic...that was one of my favorite fandom memories.

In which Leia can't sleep, Han has weird dreams, and the two of them have a chat.

Disclaimer: I own nothing.

Author's Notes: Thought that I would do a bit of a follow-up on Leia's research on her parents. It's pretty cool, getting into her head, it really is.

No, Jabba, get someone else to feed the rancor. )
