gonna be a chatty day today, I fear.

Not that I'm into writing fanfic* or anything, but I got a great idea for a Star Wars story, in the Infinities** vein...

We'd open on the desolate planet of Tatooine, where a mysterious old man crosses the sand dunes. He's going to track down a young farm girl, and spirit her off planet before determined agents of the oppressive galactic government find her. The girl, Leia Lars, has great potential in the Force, a trait she inherited from her father, a mighty hero of a failed rebellion. The two hire a smuggler who used to be a bounty hunter, a Rodian named Greedo who took the spaceship off one of his successful bounties. And thus the adventure begins.

You see, when Palpatine's revolution to save the galaxy from the tyranny of the Jedi Council failed, Count Dooku knew the only hope for the future lay in the next generation. He spirited away Anakin's only daughter, hiding her the last place anyone would look for him: the planet of her father's origin. Now, the Republic, nothing more than a puppet of the all-seeing Council, must find her, for they know her destiny: to bring balance to the force by facing off against their greatest enforcer: the uncompromising Sky-Walker, son of the same famed Separatist hero.

Yeah, this is how my mind works.***

* - Despite winning a prize for it once, back in the day. I'm not proud.
** - Star Wars: Infinities is the brand used for alternate universe stories set in the Star Wars mythos (see also Marvel's 'What If?' and DC's 'Elseworlds.") The first one looked at what would happen if Luke's lucky shot that destroyed the first Death Star... didn't hit.
*** - Not quite geeky enough for you? Did I mention this all came about when I was trying to come up with an idea for a team for the Star Wars miniatures game?
