My jedi_mistletoe fics, circa 2007 and 2008

Author names have been revealed for this year at jedi_mistletoe, so I've taken the liberty of posting the fic I wrote for that exchange to my writing community. I also realized that I'd neglected to repost my 2007 story, so that's up there as well. :)

As I say in the Author's Notes, I was amazed by how much I still like "The Jedi's Code," even after a full year - and believe me, that is a rare, rare thing. I can barely even stand to acknowledge the existence of most of my old stuff, and even in To Ignite the Stars and The Sound of One Hand Clapping (which I consider to be my two best works since I started writing fanfiction again), I can see numerous weak spots and areas where the writing and plot are muddy as hell. I'm my own worst critic, honestly, and sometimes I wish my inner editor would take a long walk off a short pier. Heh. ;)

Anyhow, links and other errata under the cuts.

Title: The Jedi's Code
Author: amidala_thrace
Characters/Pairings: Obi-Wan/Padmé, mentions of Anakin/Padmé
Word Count: 2,028
Rating: NC-17 (sexual scenes)
Summary: A Jedi shall not know anger. Nor hatred. Nor love. And Obi-Wan was a Jedi.
Author's Notes: Yet another repost, this time of the fic I wrote for jedi_mistletoe last year (before To Ignite the Stars completely consumed my brain). It's a mark of how good this actually might be - well, in my opinion anyway - that I actually still like it and can read it mostly without cringing even after the passage of a calendar year. I can't say that for all of my fics, to be sure. But then, most of you who know me also know that I'm my own worst critic by a long shot. Heh. Again, minor edits have been made for word choice, redundancy etc.

Title: Surprise
Author: amidala_thrace
Characters/Pairings: Anakin/Padmé
Word Count: 1,507
Rating: NC-17 (married people doing married things)
Summary: But after she got married, her apartment never seemed like home, never seemed to represent all the warm feelings she associated with belonging, unless Anakin was present.
Author's Notes: This is the fic I wrote for jedi_mistletoe this year. I actually had a lot of trouble coming up with the original idea for this one, for whatever reason. It ended up being based sort of vaguely on the bigthingsinlife prompt "First Apartment," and once I got going, the words seemed to really flow. I've edited a few areas that seemed clunky and wordy, but other than that, it's pretty much an as-is repost.

Also, a quick fic rec for Katie in particular, although this would really appeal to anyone who ships Adama/Roslin. I've been eagerly following the Secret Santa postings over at adama_roslin and all of them are awesome, but one in particular stands out: A Bridge to the Stars, by katamarann. This fic has it all - romance, a believable foray into AUness, spot-on characterizations, smut, top-notch writing and a happy ending (and is not totally free of angst, either!). Katie, you MUST read this if you haven't already, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who has even a passing interest in A/R. Go. Read. Love. Tell the author!

Also also, the fics I promised yesterday are coming, so don't worry about that - I just need to do a little more editing, and then they'll be posted. :)
