Rish and Marshal make their pitches for spin-off fan fiction for the Star Wars universe. Are their ideas any good? You be the judge.

Seraph, do you mean on iTunes or on the blog? Either way, I'm glad you're subscribed. The podcast also has a Facebook page and Twitter account.

On itunes - I think I'd looked for DoG before and not found it.

Okay - some pretty funny ideas guys ( except the Smee one. That was actually pretty horrifying ! I think I may have said 'Marshall !! What the hell man ??' out loud in the car ). Some of them could be turned into reasonably serious SW spin off stories I think. I really like the Max Rebo band idea, and the Admiral Akbar one also had some potential ( though maybe the Twi'lek was part of the Imperium somehow ? Not a stripper ? Maybe part of the Black Sun formerly ?? ). I like the idea of the Rancor-Keeper dealing with his loss too - maybe attempting to find a replacement pet ? He could be something of a Hagrid figure - loving stupidly dangerous creatures. Perhaps a baby nexu could take his eye ?

I have some ideas - I'll refine them a bit and post them later !

Sorry about that. The original idea was to come up with bad fan fiction ideas for Star Wars. So I thought, "What is the absolute worst type of fan fiction out there?" Answer: Making it into porn. What is the worst way someone might do that? ... Anyway, that is how I got there.

In Marshal's defense, even I was horrified by his fan fiction concept.

No, wait, that doesn't defend Marshal. In Marshal's defense, he did worry about that entry and wondered if we should cut it out or not. I figured, because of his already-familiar character, people would know it was a joke, by its mere audacity. If I had made the same joke, I think it might have been more offensive because, well, MAYBE I would go there.

To be fair - I was kinda laughing as I made my horrified exclamation ! Sorta Star Wars crossed with 'I spit on your grave' or 'Last house on the left'. I did get the joke !! :-)

Maybe we should have put a warning at the front of the episode. What if someone is listening with their kid? Waht is this is the first episode someone listens to? They wouldn't expect that kind of content. Man, this kind of stuff is really hard for me.

JUST listened to the out takes at the end and just wanted to say that I really enjoyed Rish's Luke story, and would LOVE to read / hear a Leia one !

Okay - I meant to get this done a lot sooner - but here are some of the silly fan fix ideas I had ( though they seem more appropriate for the screen than for a written media ! ) -

1. Dexster Jettster in – ‘The Problem with Ithorian Mega-Gnats’

Dexster is excited to receive an order of exotic foodstuffs from Ithoria, which he plans to use in a mean to inpress the judges of that years ‘Best Causual Eatery’ competition. However – the case is contaiminatoed with pesky Ithorian mega-gnats – which wreak havoc by infesting the circuitry of the lights, his cooking equipment, even this driod waitress FLO ! Dexster is embroiled in a serioes of halirious acccidents and antics as he tries to keep the havoc from the judges sight.

2. Elan Sel’Sabagno in “Elan’s day out’

Elan gets whacked out of his gourd on Death-Sticks, and in the midst of his hallaucinigen fueled freak-out he traipses around the undersity of Coruscant – miracously avoiding cetain death in a series of Mr. Magoo-esque twists of fate.

3. Sebulba in ‘King of the Hyper-Road’

Sebulba, ruined after the Boonta Eve Classic, stoes-away on a Corellian freighter to ride the hyperspace-lanes. Partnering up with a Rodian hobo and his droid travelling companion – Sebulba learns that money isn’t everything, and it’s the friends you have that mean everything in this heart-warning tale of this Dug’s spiritual redemption.


I had some more serious fan fix ideas as well. I'll try posting them if I get time to write out the blurbs !
