cyphomandra: boats in Auckland Harbour. Blue, blocky, cheerful (boats)
[personal profile] china_shop mentioned helpfully that [community profile] seeingcolorcomm were looking for pinch hits, including in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, so I wandered over to take a look. And then pounced on the first one I saw. I'd been thinking about a Finn backstory piece anyway, I had the novelisation out from the library; all I had to do was resist the urge to write T'Challa backstory instead, which was surprisingly tempting given that all I know of canon is the Civil War movie. (and then all I had to do was write it in three days and badger [personal profile] china_shop into betaing).

It's not my most cheerful piece ever (off-stage genocide etc) but I enjoyed writing it. I wanted to sort out Finn's past in my own head, and I wanted to provide some sort of explanation as to how the Republic is apparently unaware of the First Order's main base, and this is one possible explanation. I've never done a pinch hit before, mainly because I haven't really thought of them outside the Yuletide context, and I'm always working on my main story right up until the final deadline (ahem). I really enjoyed doing it, though, and will keep an eye out for more in the future.
