I will begin this post by blaming @deadcatwithaflamethrower which pushed me back into Star Wars fandom and from which tumblr I discovered @norcumi, @dogmatix, and from them, a whole lot more (I cannot write them all, but know that my subscription list went from 100-ish to around 120 blogs. I’m pretty sure you’re not sorry. I know I’m not.
I haven’t written fanfiction in more than 8 years. I have never written a Star Wars one. English is NOT my first language and I have never written in it except for some translation work. Not original one.
But then, I reah @dakt37 ghost!obi-wan AU and a lot of the aforementioned authors’ fanfics and then, drove home. Six hours behind the wheel, with a overexcited brain.
This, this is the result. I’m unsure (scared) of what it’s worth, of all the language mistakes that must still be inside, of the fact that my brain wanted clones PoV when I have NOT SEEN A SINGLE TCW EPISODE.
But… I guess I want to try. I want to thank those awesome writers by saying ‘this is what you do to people. You bring them joy, inspiration, and enough courage to try their hand at it’.
So, there. Here comes nothing. (Under the cut if I manage to understand how it works).
“Well… when the radios went out I decided to return to the refinery, but en route, I find I’m in an ambush situation! Must have been a couple of dozen of these things! Well, I dropped the first wave with semi-auto fire but they just kept coming! Sheer luck, most of them were in front of the truck so I just popped it into six-wheel and ran ‘em down. The ones that got on board I handled with a combination of small-arms fire and hand-to-hand techniques. I am completely out of ammo… that’s never happened to me before.”
*headshake* being a parent is such a weird thing sometimes. Sitting at my computer, enjoying the silence of my kid ACTUALLY sleeping before midnight, stretch - realize that I’ve got six Hot Wheels in my friggin’ hoodie pocket. Like??? Then go to deposit them back into my son’s car drawer… And step on his blocks. What the hell.
Our group just finished killing some monsters and decided to look through their treasure. We have a barbarian, a monk, a rogue, a paladin, and a very stoned monk (who’d just gotten over being petrified. The barbarian was a guest player so there wasn’t much of a point to giving him the expensive treasure, but he found something just about as good.
DM (Me): *lists out all their loot, which consists of treasures, coin, alcohol, and a 6 wheels of magically preserved cheese.
Rogue OOC: Do we need to let [barbarian] have any of the treasure if we’re not gonna use him again?
Barbarian OOC: I honestly just want all of the cheese and some of the ale and wine.
DM: All of it?
Barbarian: ALL OF IT
DM: The barbarian looks with glee as he uses the rope in his pack to tie the six large wheels of cheese together for travel, this is the best day of your life.
Barbarian: I got to see my reflection, I got to cut a monster in half, and I get to have a lot of cheese, this adventure was totally worth.
later after turning in their monster hunting contract the barbarian decides to hit on the hunter guildmaster’s daughter who they’d just saved from monsters during their mission.
DM: Okay roll for seduction.
He rolls a 21
DM: what do you want to say.
Barbarian OOC: I finish a handful of cheese and my ale and I saunter up to her and say with my face covered in cheese “Hey baby, you lookin gouda”.
We all collectively facepalm, and the barbarian doesn’t get laid, but he does get to have a fun drunken night to end his guest appearance.

okay, now that all the panic from this morning is over (every 6-8 months something goes so wrong, so horribly, terribly wrong, just to remind me that human error exists and IT COULD HAPPEN TO YOU, jfc)
