Hunters of the Dark Side Master Post


Hunters of the Dark Side by [info]paleogymnast  
Art by [info]xtinethepirate and [info]ashlan
 


Genre: Gen, AU
Pairing: None
Rating: R (for language and graphic violence)
Word Count: 133,000
Spoilers: vague for everything aired , specific for the "Pilot"; "Home"
Warnings: canonical character death, graphic violence, language, technobable, and uh, Jedi?

Summary: Sam and Dean Winchester were raised as Hunters, seeking out Sith Relics, lost souls, and vestiges of the dark side that slipped through the cracks, the evils of the universe that Jedi either didn't know about or didn't care to stop.  But now, Sam has made a life for himself in the bustling political center of the Galactic Republic.  He's left hunting behind, and Dean has grudgingly moved on, resigning himself to a life of card games and scoundrels, living on the fringes of society.  But then their father disappears, and a string of mysterious fires promises to hold clues to their mother's death twenty-two years before.  Will the brothers reunite and discover their destiny?  Could a Dark Lord of the Sith believed dead for five thousand years really be running loose in the galaxy?  And what of an equally ancient prophecy that foretells of a Chosen One and a Healer who will battle for the fate of the galaxy?  The very Force itself hangs in the balance as Dean and Sam discover truths about themselves they never knew.

An alternate retelling of Supernatural set in the Star Wars universe or "What if Sam and Dean were Jedi?"  Not a crossover as no characters from the Star Wars!verse are used.

Disclaimer: Supernatural and its characters are property of Kripke, Warner Brothers, the CW, et al.  The Star Wars universe belongs to Lucas Film, Ltd. and its many authors and artists.  I own nothing but my original characters. Written for fun, not profit.

Thanks for commenting, I really do hope you read this. Unfortunately I had to do some last-minute editing and changes on the fly (as I was posting), so I don't have this in one document. :( You are welcome to copy and merge the posts, though if that helps!! :D

Thank you so much for your interest, and I do hope you get t read it!! :D

Hi, I know this is a long shot but do you have a single file version of your story that you'd be willing to email me at amalthia at gmail.com? Your story sounds really interesting and I'd love to read it! Thanks for your time.

Hey, thanks for your interest, and I do hope you get to read this.

As I said to the other person who asked, unfortunately, I don't have a single file of this as I had to make some last-minute edits while posting, so I don't have it all in one place in a convenient format. You are welcome to copy the posts into your own document though.:)

Thanks again! I really really appreciate your interest in the story!:) Thanks for commenting!

Does this story contains big spoilers for Star Wars ? I explain myself. I really want to read this story this week-end but i never saw Star Wars. A friend of mine (a big fan of SW) wants to make me watch Star Wars this summer (in exchange, i will make him watch Buffy). Anyway, i bookmarked the master post in case i have to wait a few more weeks before reading your fic :)

Hmm... good question. I don't think you would be spoiled at all, espcially not for the plot, characters, and events of the original Star Wars trilogy, and really not that much for the prequel trilogy either, but let me explain myself so you can make an informed decision.

This is not a crossover, so absolutely no characters that appear in any of the Star Wars movies, books, games, or graphic novels appear in the fic.

Also, this story takes place 500 years before the start of the original Star Wars trilogy (so make that 467 years before the start of the Prequel trilogy), so there is no spoliage of any specific events or happenings in the movies because they're far in the future of when this story takes place. I'd say that's doubly so for the Original trilogy since it really takes place in a different era and as such a lot of things in the universe have changed by the time the storyline of the movies takes place.

On the other hand, Hunters of the Dark Side does incorporate real star Wars Places (planets, cities, etc.), species, weapons, terminology, and general information about the history of the galaxy. There is also some general information about the Sith and Jedi and their attitudes towards the Force.

If you read this now and see Star Wars later, any spoiled information is going to be along the lines of "oh, that's what the planet where Sam and Dean did [blank] looks like." I doubt this gives any hints or insight into the events of the Star Wars films. Plus, lots of the events and species and places I do talk about never appear in the films at all.

So I think you're safe to read this now, but whether you read it now or later, I really hope you enjoy it!! :D Thanks so much for your interest and for commenting!!:)

Jesus Pales. This is a monster of a fic, and I thought my one last year was long at 120K, lmao.
Ok, I just got back from a weekend away for my nephews birthday so now I can enjoy all the goodness. I'm so excited to read this, I've been looking forward to it ever since you told me your plot line. :D
*bounces with excitement*

Well I really, really hope you like this!! :) Let me know what you think when you're done reading it!! :) (And honestly, this isn't that much longer than your fic from last year, so... I hope it doesn't feel too long; once I started editing the story it just needed to be this long to get everything in!!)

Re: Reading Material
Actually, of you're interested, I now have PDFs of this and it's sequel and the epilogue, amd I'd be happy to send you all 3 (art is included in all of them). Probably a little more convenient than copy and paste. :)

So, being a bit of a Star Wars geek, I nearly screamed when I came across this in swing_set13's epic AU Destiel list. May I also request having this e-mailed to me? I wouldn't mind having a master copy to read from. My e-mail address is elleburnham@gmail.com

I promise to either post comments in your lj or send you a response once I have read through it. I haven't written fanfiction in a few years but I know how important it is to get feedback :).

Thanks for your interest in the series. Hunters of the Dark Side is the first story followed by The Fulcrum of the Force, followed by Raveling Tendrils.

i`m only halfway through this one but i seriously wanted to you give you a hug today because of its amazingness. i`m not a star wars geek by any means but i seriously can`t imagine the writing process. collaborating these two worlds must be hard.

Hi there. Thanks so much for reading. I tried replying to your comment several times, but LJ was having *issues* and wouldn't post it. And then I forgot. :(

This 'verse is actually really fun to write in and not hard to fuse. After all, Kripke himself has described Supernatural as Star Wars in truck stop America, so the parallels and similarties between characters and plot lines were just there and waiting to be explored. I really hope you enjoy the story and its sequels. :)
