New Short Story: My Mother's Dreams

Hey everyone. It's been a long time since I've written anything but I've just posted a new short story called My Mother's Dreams. You can see the story itself here. (Fair warning: this story contains spoilers for the ending of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.)

I was recently inspired to start writing again after not writing for a really long time. I have a couple of original (non-Star Wars) ideas in my head that I need to think about and develop more, but in the meantime I wanted to flex that writing muscle once more and see if I'd gotten rusty. To do that and to go forward, I felt like I had to go backwards a little. Because I'm still thinking about my own original stories, I decided to go back to my roots in Star Wars and write a story about Le…

SWFanon is beta testing the VisualEditor feature

Hello! Today I'm happy to let you know that Star Wars Fanon is helping out with beta testing the VisualEditor feature. This new editor was developed in partnership with the Wikimedia Foundation, and Wikia has been working on its implementation for some time. We're one of the first communities to be trying out this new feature, so we can provide crucial feedback to the Wikia Product Team to make sure the VisualEditor is the best it can be. Note that it is not available in Monobook.

Here are some details about how the VisualEditor beta release works:

VisualEditor can be accessed in two ways:

  1. Edit an existing article by simply clicking the "Edit" button
  2. Create a new article by typing in the web address of a nonexistent page and then clicking the "Cre…

Fluid Layout Arrives on Star Wars Fanon

Hi everyone. Star Wars Fanon is taking part in the early testing of Project Darwin, the next evolution of Wikia's look and feel. The biggest change that you'll see here—unless you use the Monobook skin—is that we now have a fluid layout. This means that the content area will grow and shrink depending on the size of your screen.

As this is part of a beta release, Wikia is very interested in feedback from us about fluid layout. This is a great chance for Star Wars Fanon to help out, to show how fluid layout is working on a fanon/fan fiction wikia like ours. To that end, I would encourage everyone to spend some time browsing around the wikia and commenting about what you think. This goes for Monobook users too; what do you think about the evolving…

Solus' Artwork Mistaken for the Real Thing

One of our very own administrators and artists, Solus, has had her art mistaken for the real thing. A few years ago, I (along with CurrentBigThing) chose actress Rachel Hurd-Wood as the likeness for Princess Leia in the Alternative Star Wars Saga. You can see that Princess Leia article here, and you can see the image of her off to the right. The image was based on a stock photo of the actress. Using that photo, Solus turned the dress silver and added the necklace. I requested this because I wanted her to have a similar costume to what the character wore in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. That led to the image you see here.

Recently, it's been rumored that Rachel Hurd-Wood went in to read for a role in Star Wars Episode VII, so this rumor h…
