Hey there. I highly appreciate your feedback on Star Wars: Civil War; I hopefully learned from what you have written. I also could not agree more on what you said. If you would like to read and review Star Wars: The Yuuzhan Vong, please feel free. I strongly think that this story is a major improvement in the series. Cheers!
The cover was a collaboration with another SWF user who is no longer active, sadly. I picked out some of the source images and she put it all together. It's at least 90% her work and it turned out great.
I have reviewed your story. it is an improvement over Civil War, but I feel there is still considerable opportunity for growth. Check out the comment I left you and good luck with your future endeavors.
I am an original character guy, so my preference is going to lean towards characters that you yourself have written and developed. Sure, it's fun to bring in Han Solo and have a go at writing Harrison Ford's character, but I enjoy it more when the main characters aren't an interpretation of existing canon character. SWF characters like Raen Benax, Tirien Kal-Di, and yes even Laera Reyole are more intriguing to me, so I enjoyed reading about characters that I presume you invented, like Ponds.
I kind of brought Ponds "back" in a sense. I think I made up Rahr, Colly, most of Carg, and Scrape. But I like expanding on clone soldiers that barely got well-deserved screentime in the shows. I am in the midst of reading Force Exile: The Fugitive and when I'll be all done, I'll give you some feedback!
