I’ve got a very special treat for everyone this week! The special treat is chapter seven of A Jedi’s Destiny, the first chapter of nine chapters that haven’t been re-written! The bad news here is that you’ll have to squint and tilt your head to the side in order to determine what the difference is. I certainly can’t tell.
SPEED RECAP! There’s a Gary Stu named Markus who is mostly evil, and entirely a jackass. He jumps through a rift and ends up on a 4000 year old yet magically upgraded Star Wars spaceship and lands on the Land Before Time world. Through a series of misadventures, he acquires a large collection of worshipers who fawn over his every word. There’s also some vague foreshadowing supplied by some of the Star Wars cast, but it’s been largely unimportant to the “plot.” There’s also the possibility that there’s sexual tension going on between Markus and Littlefoot, but it’s best not to dwell on that.

Sorry, forgot to add the usual weird schedule excuse.
Lyle’s sick and couldn’t get Froozenpoodle’s entry up for Monday, so instead they both had me toss it up for today to cover both of them. Enjoy!
I’m sure many of you lost sleep this week wondering why Tonks wants to leave the wizarding world. Well, I won’t make you wait any longer. Here’s the rest of chapter three.
Hello and happy weekend, dear Patrons! Lyle drew the short straw this week and is off cleaning the shark-jump tank, so she’ll be back on Tuesday with another update. Instead, I bring to you an absolutely gorgeous piece of Harry Potter fanart.
It is the artist’s interpretation of what Severus Snape would see in the Mirror of Erised – himself with Lily as his wife and Harry as his son. I think it is exceptionally true to the character as well as being quite well done.
Salutations, Patrons of the failed arts! I’m here today to tantalize and torment you with a luxurious new fic. It’s an older fic from the basement of the Teen Titans section (the animated series, not the comics) over on good ol’ ff.net. This particular source material is one of the most popular subjects in the Cartoons section, I thought I had done a few from there but a quick peek in the archives reveals that I’ve only offered up two fics in the past. Well, I’m going to rectify that oversight today! The chapters are very short and edited oddly, often cutting off mid-scene, so most of my riffs will contain at least two chapters.

Hello once again, children. Hello, and welcome to the finale of the first half of the ME2 arc. After this, we’ll be halfway done with Parallel Realities, and I honestly can’t wait to see what happens.
So all you really need to know is that last time, Nihlus had a sort of loyalty mission taken care of. This involved running around Omega taking down every merc group so that Garrus’ “vigilante” corps could go in and hold the rock for the Order’s use. Somehow, Aria was given clearance to find out what the parallel galaxy is, and we had Samara turn into a complete idiot from the subpar writing for her.
This time, we go in with some more plot regurgitation, and it covers one of the major plot missions. So let’s do this.
