^^ No worries. You usually write in the style that you personally enjoy, which is a perfectly acceptable reason



The sun goes down and the sky reddens, pain grows sharp.
light dwindles. Then is evening
when jasmine flowers open, the deluded say.
But evening is the great brightening dawn
when crested cocks crow all through the tall city
and evening is the whole day
for those without their lovers

Looks like the perfect mixture is: good grammar+descriptions+well made chars...
Well, after I set this conclusion, I also realized I have a lot to eat until i can make it...

I like fanfics that make me think about the story after I have read it and stays with me. In other words... inspirational.

I like a good plot twist and a good revelation scene at the end. You know, making the reader remember how the story began and how it can end.

Oh, I've had original ideas... it's just most people are too lazy
People probably thought originality was out, in the Medieval times... but that's just because that's all they knew.

I rather like character conflict. Even close friends frequently fight about very trivial issues. When you've got arguments and debates, you can expand on the characters you have in the story.

In my Yuthura story, she frequently is defiant and hostile towards others, but I try to portray HER perspective on an issue... even when she's wrong. I find that it is a greater story when the writer can make the reader see through the eyes of the characters. We all see the same events, but often come to different truths. The best authors are those that can explain why conflict is inevitable.

Bit of a location problem

In my RP Star Wars: The Sith Resurrection Part IV: Alliances Divided, Tython is attacked by invaders from the Unknown Regions, and I erroneously stated that the planet is on the borders of known space, only to find out recently that Tython is actually in the Deep Core. It's impossible to retcon the attack, so I'm wondering if there's anything capable of moving a planet that could explain the discrepancy.

I don't know of anything like that to exist. Perhaps changing the name of the world would be better.

Trouble there is that there was too much reference to it being Tython to just change it to another planet.

If I remember my lore correctly, didn't Centerpoint Station have the ability to move planets, or something of the nature?

I checked Wookieepedia, and it does. Maybe I'll use that.

During which timeline are you placing Tython, Centerpoint station wasn't created until, well, much later in the Star Wars universe {Unless your doing the Legacy period}. There could be an unexplored region in the Deep core, that could work.

Legacy Era, specifically 107 ABY, but I stated that Tython was moved not long before Centerpoint was destroyed.

Good idea, that could work pretty well. You could say it was like a first experimental test for Centerpoint, just an idea.
