Yep, I adopted it, and yep, I'm fine with that.

During the Ispace Wars, I looked around for old OFUs to borrow characters from, and the SWFFA was one I stole wholesale. Given that the original is long gone, I took certain liberties with it - I'm pretty sure Leto didn't write himself as Lord Haven, and I'm not sure he even had an author avatar in there. (Leto was, by the by, probably the first Permission Giver after the original trio of Cam, Bast, and Thalia.)

I've had a couple of appearances from Lord Haven in the Ispace Wars itself, plus one standalone appearance set at the release of The Force Awakens. I did briefly consider writing a revived OFU for it... but decided against it just as quickly.

So for my part, I would be delighted to see you take up the mantle and start it off, either under Lord Haven, under new management, or as a second OFU (which has happened multiple times before, so don't feel shy about doing that).

    I'd like to write that, please. Well, it's actually more complicated. The original Star Wars Official Fanfiction Academy was written by Alistair Fyrethorne and Leto Haven, but has been deleted. Leto, ... more

      • Awesome; thank you!Alleb, Mon Aug 7 11:58am
        Egads, I'm quite excited! I'm thinking I'll go with a second OFU, since, as you said, the original is long gone. This is going to be so fun. Thanks again, hS! Oh, yes, I remember that standalone now. ... more
        • Hmm. Not sure.Huinesoron, Mon Aug 7 12:43pm
          I think it was lifted? It doesn't look like the sort of thing I'd invent, and the Force knows* there was enough raw material to work with. (*Yes, I know, 'that isn't how the Force works' etc.)... more
    • I support it, pending Huinesoron's approval.doctorlit, Fri Aug 4 8:58am
      Much as I would love to get the original back in some fashion, I suspect it's gone for good . . . and Star Wars 's canon has changed so much in recent years, I feel that a reboot is reasonable.... more
    • I'd be onboard with that. Badger421, Wed Aug 2 11:59pm
      I'm fairly sure hS adopted Lord Haven and the rest of the original OFU, so as long as he's okay with it I'd say go wild. Worst case scenario one of the original authors comes back and then we've got... more
      • I might take you up on that!Alleb, Thu Aug 3 5:00pm
        Good betas are worth their weight in gold; thank you for the offer. Ha, I've been spending a fair bit of time on Wookieepedia too, these days. -Alleb
