I don't know what to call it yet.

Inspired by true events (I'll let you guess which parts).

This story only starts with Sam; anybody who isn't in a story can join. I want to try to do it in nuCanon but I'm gonna need lots of help with that.

Sam is living a semi-normal (as semi-normal as Sam's life can be) life with Han. (Ideas for planet home requested; it would have been Corellia, but...) She is still on the job, which Han barely tolerates. Everything is peachy.

Then, Sam starts feeling strange. She experiences strange, whole body shivers every now and then. She begins to hear strange music, repeating over and over, and for a long time, suspects Han is playing it surrepticiously, knowing she wouldn't like it. Then she begins to hear Han talking in hushed tones with Marcus Arete outside their bedroom door, which she knows is impossible, or is it? Is the music even real?

The shivers grow more frequent, and more forceful, but Han hasn't seen one, and she hasn't told him about what she's hearing.

......

Sam wakes up in a hospital. Restrained. Han (and maybe Corran?) is standing over her, looking concerned and also a bit alarmed. "They gave you enough sedative to knock out two pulgas."

So what the hell happened?

Evweryone is invited! This is just meant to be the beginning of a galaxy-wide plot, not a Sam story. Maybe a conspiracy story? I welcome any input or ideas!

(A pulga is a horse, apparently still canon, and that part is true.)

Sam, my suggestion for your current residence would be the planet Chandrila. The planet was once the capital of the New Republic–the idea in nuCanon now is that the capital is rotated among member systems, an election determining the location–and Chandrila could still be/selected again circa 19 ABY. The New Republic Defense Fleet headquarters is located in Hanna City, which would give Han the reason to be on the planet as well. Don't know about the current status of Rogue Squadron, but Han could be on detached duty training Planetary Security Forces pilots on Landing Platform OB-99 near the Silver Sea. And since Sam is still in the "business", she would frequent Frander's Bay, a space station orbiting Chandrila where spacers hang out waiting to be hired.

Thanks, that sounds like a great location for us!

I'm leaning more toward this being a conspiracy story. Sam knows something but her brain is addled by possible outside influences (poison?) and nobody believes her - and she isn't sure she believes it herself. Then, there are the parts she can't remember.

And I like how Marcus contacted me in his post. I think it would be interesting to do that occasionally; that way, people in different stories can still RP together, from whatever planet we're on.

I'm working on the first post now. Han's going to wait for the last movie to decide if he wants to play in nuCanon or stick with Legacy (which would keep us from communicating in character with anyone in nuCanon :( ).

Another thought–for Han, he could be flight testing/undergoing familiarization flights with the new T-85 X-Wings that Rogue Squadron received. And the Rogues could be preparing to go out on a New Republic public relations tour to convince more of the neutral/unaffiliated systems to join the New Republic. After all, who wouldn't be swayed by Han's holovid star looks?

If you're going conspiracy involving memories that might not be real.

Well I'm the original article.

That sounds good Gavin, I'll let him know. He's still holding out for this weekend to see if the movie's any good.

That's great Claw! Hop on board. :) I'll go refresh myself of your bio. I'm still working on the post, I caught a bad cold and am just now getting over it.

Yeah Sam, our characters met a few times before during the tale of two syndicates storyline.

I haven't fully decided where John exists in nucanon, so we can mold him around the story if you like.  Like who's to say he hasn't gone legit in the last twenty years, and works as a tracker or something for the new republic.  Something to think about.

Here's a pic of Hanna City (credit to starwarsrpg.net for image) that was on the internet. Might help with the writing.

Sounds interesting. I would like to join if we write. Time to get the writer's mode on.
