Quote: "I know, but it's been... months. What ifĖ"

Labyrinth-ish Fanfic

Yes, I have written some, although not for a long time, and only the Labyrinth fic was ever posted anywhere, albeit under a different name. This section will undoubtedly grow, but probably slowly.
Warning: These are mostly about original characters, although set in the Labyrinth universe.

* A Debt Owed *
Jareth's half-brother is happy that his long-time friend has returned home, but is there more to it than that?
Quote: "I find that the more you are gone, the more I think of you, till I can think of nothing else. You entice me with your presence, then torment me with your absence."

Star Wars Stories

All both of them. *g* Written some five or six years ago, shortly after Episode I: The Phantom Menace (and doesn't that just sound like a ridiculously bad children's show?... hey, not too far from the truth!) came out. These were never posted anywhere because I was cowardly. :)

* Comfort *
Obi-Wan regrets the choice that he made.
Quote: "Not injured in the body, but perhaps injured a bit in the heart?"

* Hang On To Yourself *
Obi tries to help Qui-Gon deal with a tragedy.
