Very grateful to you for writing for me, I am!

I love the grand themes of Star Wars, with its sweeping scope of good and evil on galactic scale. And I love all these characters, who aren't completely committed to one single regime throughout their lives but who make choices that matter and through their lives, gradually or decisively, move in hopeful directions. I'd love to read about anything that brings out these themes, explicitly or implicitly. I chose single characters rather than preset relationships because I'd rather you have the freedom to make unexpected connections--set a story in an era we didn't see onscreen or bring in other characters if you'd like! (I'm not familiar with most secondary canon, though.)

General likes: happy endings, sad endings (when providing some measure of closure or melodrama), gen, friendship, enemy-ness. I'm also fine with total crack, so if you want to write something with a really nonstandard format (I've listed a couple examples before) go nuts.

General dislikes: ambiguous endings, issue-fic, explicit sex, rape/non-con.

Here are just a few suggestions for each character to get an idea for the range of plots I'd be interested in, really anything goes.

Anakin:
  • Vader and his subordinates on the Death Star. Could be bureaucratic humor, or maybe he's impressed by Leia's unyielding under torture...sensing her potential?
  • Force-ghost Anakin trains Rey in the ways of the Jedi
  • Backstroke of the West-inspired silliness
  • Any stage of the Anakin/Padme relationship would be great (no other romantic relationships for him, please)

Lando:

  • How Han got the Millennium Falcon from Lando
  • Vader first convinces Lando to set a trap at Cloud City
  • 5 (or some other number) of responsibilities Lando conned people out of, and one he didn't
  • Lando and Poe work together on a project for the struggling republic (gen or shippy)

Finn:

  • JB-007 and Finn work on the same sanitation unit
  • BB-8 helps Finn decode some First Order messages
  • Finn and Rey's wedding night involves unceremoniously kicking Chewbacca out of the Millennium Falcon
  • A William Shakespeare's Star Wars-style retelling of any Finn scene in The Force Awakens
Like I said, don't feel compelled to use these, just if they're helpful as jumping-off points. Anything that involves these characters confronting good, evil, or hopes old and new will make my day. Thanks in advance for whatever you come up with,  and of course, may the force be with you!
