A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

It is a period of civil war. We know the main characters, the heroes, the villains.
But a war never involves just a handful of important people. There are always countless others on each side providing support for their leaders: technicians, mechanics, ground troops, intelligence officers, pilots, logisticians, procurement officials, medics, mess hall workers, instructors. Though often kept in the background in the Star Wars universe, without them there would be no Empire or Rebellion. This page is dedicated to one such group of no-names doing their own small part to restore freedom to the galaxy...

Corona Squadron is an X-wing squadron I created as part of my Star Wars RPG character's background. At first that was all it was--just a quick phrase scribbled on a character sheet; however, through a strange set of circumstances that phrase started becoming much more. These pesky pilots now take up a lot of my time, demanding to be given attention in stories and such.

Although I've created a whole squadron of fighter pilots, in the stories I focus primarily on my former RPG character (Darin Stanic) and his wingman. In my online Star Wars interactions, I generally have user id's relating to either Darin's callsign of Thumper (see Cracian Thumper, not Bambi-Thumper) or his squadron designation, Corona Nine.

These stories are posted for the enjoyment (hopefully) of those who stumble across them and take the time to read them. The Star Wars universe belongs to LucasFilm and Disney, and I'm not making any profit off of this (quite the opposite, really). I'll leave the big characters alone and just play in the corner of this amazing galaxy by myself, okay?

Corona Squadron

co ro na. n., pl. -nas or -nae. 1. The highest-temperature region of the Sun's outer atmosphere.
2. The only part of the Sun visible during a total eclipse. see HALO.

The Coronas are an X-wing starfighter squadron active in the time roughly between the Battle of Yavin and the Battle of Hoth. There are no canon movie characters in the squadron, no relatives of canon characters, nothing like that--it's just a group of ordinary pilots working together to help the Rebellion. They have their own quirks, their own qualities and their own adventures, some of which are listed below.

Most of these stories build on previous ones. While my hope is that they could be read independently of each other, there are some where something significant could be lost if the reader doesn't have the assumed background knowledge from another story. For that reason, I'm including a "Recommended Reading" field for those stories. I consider all of these stories to be rated a strong PG under the American movie rating system guidelines.

These are organized into different categories. This first group is my main storyline for Darin and the Coronas so far. The "Additional Stories" are my Star Wars fanfics that don't relate to the Coronas.

Some stories are notated as being "Essential OC Challenge" replies. On the Jedi Council Forums Fan Fiction Boards, I enjoy participating in the Essential OC (Original Character) thread. This thread has regularly scheduled challenges that are open to any story featuring original characters. Each challenge is different, and I've written numerous stories for them, each usually around 5-6 pages long.

The Corona stories are listed in roughly chronological order, though they've been written at very different times. Some stories have a very definite order, but most (especially challenge replies) are more general in their timing.

Constructive feedback on stories is most welcome, or even a note to say you read any of them. If you e-mail me, please put an appropriate subject line on the e-mail so I won't accidentally delete it as spam.


Pilot in Command

Revision A (1-10-10) 5 pages
This explores a part of Darin's childhood. Darin is seven when his sister Shiori is born. A few weeks after she comes home for the first time, Darin is still having trouble adjusting to the newcomer to the household.

When Push Comes to Shove

This was an OC Challenge entry. The challenge: "The Worst Day of Your Life. Write about the worst day of a character's life. If the character has experienced more than one "worst day", pick the one that has impacted their life the most. The "worst day" doesn't have to be the standard tragic fare. It could be something that is really silly but awful to the character." This story shows us Mackin's worst day, when he had to leave his family because his squadron was being loaned to the Rebellion. This takes place before Commander Mackin's time with Corona Squadron.

Revision A (6-5-22) 10 pages
This was an OC Challenge entry. The challenge: "OC Comfort Challenge. Your OC has been feeling under the weather (whether this is illness, injury or just being ill at ease is up to you) and needs a special something to make everything right again. This might be something that they have to get for themselves, or something provided by someone else, but whatever it is - it is the only thing that can put the world right and bring your OC back to their full health." In this story, Maptoo suspects something unusual is wrong with Slurry. It takes place shortly before Darin joins the squadron.

The Storm After the Calm
PDF document
Revision F  (9-16-12) 125 pages
Darin is now seventeen years old, and an Imperial invasion has turned his whole life upside-down and forcing changes on him that he never would have dreamed could happen. Though some significant events remain the same, Revision F has been completely rewritten from previous versions and tells what I hope is a more realistic (if considerably darker) story.

Revision A (8-30-09) 3 pages
This was an OC Challenge entry. The challenge: "OC’s Need to Eat their Viggies to Get Big & Strong: Side story, background story, adventures in finding a restroom story… Tell a story about one of your current OC’s, give a little expose on your favorite, or not-so-favorite OC. No more than one post long!" I took this opportunity to delve a bit more into Lt. Weas's character, and this vignette takes place shortly before "Commencement" as he gets ready for Darin's arrival to the Coronas. (The forum HTML link is here for reference, but the story was truncated in a software change with the forum.)

Revision G.1  (1-29-09) 39 pages
The events of "The Storm After the Calm" have led Darin to join the Rebellion and become an X-wing pilot, and he's now been assigned to Corona Squadron, his first X-wing combat squadron. Think of it as a television show's pilot episode (no pun intended): it introduces all the pilots as it follows eighteen-year-old Darin during his first days with the Coronas and on his very first combat mission. It takes place about two months after the Battle of Yavin.
I consider this to be a fairly stand-alone fic, and therefore it has been circulated to a few other places. I'm very pleased to say that Rev. G.1 of C'ement was a co-winner in the category of "Most Underrated" for the TF.N JCC Boards 2009 Saga Fanfiction Awards. A much earlier revision can be found in the fanfic section of EchoStation's Downtime, though EchoStation doesn't seem to exist anymore, unfortunately. (There's an even earlier version than that [like 2002] elsewhere, but it's one of my earliest writings and is kind of embarrassing for me to look at now.)

Fleet Description
PDF document
Revision B (7-1-07) 5 pages
This is a small scene taken out of its overall context whose sole purpose is to describe the various ships in Crescent Star's fleet. It was meant to be incorporated into the story "Outside Looking In", but I decided it would be best if I only summarized this scene in there and left this extended version as a separate document. This detailed information is useful in subsequent stories, and I wanted to make it easily available. It takes place two days after "Commencement", or four days after Darin joined the Coronas.

Outside Looking In
PDF document
Revision A (7-21-08) 39 pages
Recommended Reading: Commencement
OLI starts two days after "Commencement" ends, and it completes most of the introductory information started in "Commencement". Darin has to learn how to adjust to his new lifestyle with the Coronas onboard Crescent Star while the events from his first combat mission are still fresh in his mind. (Revision B will have the above Fleet Description reintegrated into this story.)

Revision A (9-8-21) 6 pages
This was an entry for the "Dead Poets' Society Quote Challenge" on the JC Fanfic Boards. The challenge was to write a fic inspired by a roulette quote. My assigned quote was, "You must strive to find your own voice because the longer you wait to begin, the less likely you are going to find it at all." Events in "No Good Reason" cause Darin to ask to transfer out of the squadron, which Weas refuses. This vignette has Darin trying to find his place in a squadron he doesn't feel he belongs in.

How to Handle Yourself

Revision C (5-29-04) 9 pages

Revision A (6-30-08) 6 pages
This was an Essential OC challenge entry. The challenge was, "You can't bring me down! Let your character be happy and satisfied for a change. Then, make the worst happen, but, as the challenge states, for whichever reasons it does not bring him down. He's still happy after all is said and done. We can't bring them down, but it won't be for lack of trying." This takes place about two months after Darin joins the Coronas, and while it doesn't compare to the bad stuff I put him through before he joined the Rebellion, Darin is still the victim in this story. Quiver persuades him to participate in a prank on a squadmate. (The forum HTML link is here for reference, but the story post was truncated in a software change with the forum.)

This was an Essential OC Challenge entry. The challenge: "A situation where an OC encounters an unknown species for the first time. This can be sapient or non-sapient, and it need not be an actual new to the GFFA species, just one the character personally knows nothing about." This particular story is more of a slice-of-life. A young Anx meets Darin on a Rebel safeworld.

Revision A (12-21-07) 6 pages
This was an Essential OC Challenge entry. The challenge: "Hero Worship! Everyone looks up to someone, and your OC gets the chance to take a closer look at his/her hero. Does the hero measure up? Does your OC notice if s/he doesn't? Does your OC turn into a creepy stalker? Inquiring minds want to know." I didn't stick very closely to the challenge's intent, but the basics are there. My summary for this story featuring the Mackins is, "A military family deals with a member's secret deployment in different ways. Introspective piece."

Revision A (7-4-20) 18 pages
This is my collection of stories for the 2020 TFN Fanfic Olympics starring Darin and Quiver. I participated in the decathlon, which was comprised of ten different events. Most are short vignettes, and all are included in the forum post. The timeline varies for each vignette, though most take place in the general time between "Commencement" and "Solid Ground." The AU entry takes place immediate after (the as-yet-unposted) story "No Good Reason," and the Fantastical entry is not strictly Corona-canon but takes place years after Ground (and several years after ROTJ).

This was an Essential OC Challenge entry. The challenge: "Write about a character who is normally always busy doing nothing (i.e. something that is essential for daily survival but not life-altering; ex. Doing laundry). This can be a brief moment of downtime during an otherwise busy day, or someone who is undergoing a long period of inactivity. The writer can decide if their character is happy/unhappy with this state." Quiver and Darin are stuck in the brig, and Quiver has to figure out how to entertain himself.

This was an Essential OC challenge entry. The challenge reads, "Between a Rock and a Hard Place. Create a scenario that puts one or more of your OCs into a situation in which a choice must be made between two options. The options are mutually exclusive, and either choice would produce an undesirable outcome for the OC(s)." Botch gets the limelight in this story when he has to save Darin during a dogfight. (Truncated forum post for reference is here.)

Reaching Conclusions

Revision A (2-24-22) 23 pages
This was an Essential OC Challenge entry. The challenge, "Music Makes My Heart Sing," is as follows: "Find a song that symbolises your original characters and use it to inspire a story. The story can be happy, sad, tragic or even romantic, it's up to you and the inspiration you get from the song you've chosen." The song that inspired this story is "All My Friends Say" by Luke Bryan. The song is a fairly upbeat, lighthearted one about someone who couldn't remember what they did while drunk, and his friends tell him all about it. The idea behind it is such a perfect Quiver song, so I started writing a similarly upbeat, lighthearted story... until about six paragraphs in when Darin unexpectedly made the whole thing do a 180. It's not quite so lighthearted anymore. A drunken night leads to a rift between friends.

"Untitled". Story taking place ~5 months after "Commencement". In-work. See "Projects" section.

Revision A (10-15-07) 4 pages
This was an Essential OC Challenge entry. The challenge: "When you’re a child anything can make you happy: ice cream, a trip to the grocery store, running with scissors. For adults it’s a bit more complicated. With stress and worries beating down on you, it takes something really exciting to cause that happy, giddy, lighter-than-air, run around and break stuff happiness. So lock up the good china, and give your adult OC something to smile about." I actually had to be nice to my characters. In this story, Darin copes with job burnout.

Searching and Finding
PDF document
Revision A (8-5-03) 42 pages
Admittedly an experiment in writing on my part, but one I had fun with nonetheless. This takes place about six months after "Commencement". On a Rebel world, the Coronas help look for an Imperial pilot who was shot down. This story is told in nothing but first-person point-of-view, which may either make it horribly confusing to readers or somewhat more interesting. If you read it, let me know which it is. This story will be rewritten in the future, though the basic plot will likely remain the same.

Revision A (2-10-07) 6 pages
This was an Essential OC Challenge entry. The challenge: "'Everyone has a price.' Does the old saying hold true for your OC? Offer them a bribe to do something that they would otherwise find reprehensible, and let us all find out! And remember, often a person's 'price' has nothing to do with money..." The summary for my entry is simply that not every Rebel is a good guy. Lt. Pellicer is the main character. I wrote and posted this story within 24 hours because I was quickly approaching the challenge deadline, and there are lots of rough spots and hiccups that I'd love to fix now. (Truncated forum post is here for reference.)

Taking Notice

Revision A (11-3-19) 12 pages
This was an entry for the TFN Moderators' Time Challenge, 72-hours edition. In this challenge, the fanfic moderators would provide several unique prompts to the author, and the author then had a certain amount of time to write and post a story using those prompts. The 72 hours version was the longest time period but also had the highest number of prompts to include. The prompts are shown in the beginning of the story thread. In this story, Sonic (Quiver's astromech) tries to connect with Quiver while on a mission. It's largely told from Sonic's point of view.

Revision A (1-13-22) 27 pages
This was my entry for the TFN Fanfic Boards Kessel Run Challenge. This challenge ran for 12 consecutive weeks. Each week, the participants would be given a prompt, and the authors would then have one week to write and post a story using that prompt. There were ten weekly prompts and one long prompt that accounted for two weeks. Without knowing what any of the prompts would be, I decided to try to write a cohesive Corona story, start to finish, while using each week to focus on a different pilot and then using the long prompt at the end as an ensemble squadfic. This is my result. The prompt for each week is shown at the beginning of that week's post. The Coronas prepare to defend a civilian colony world against an impending Imperial attack.

Solid Ground
PDF document
Revision C (4-19-12) 139 pages
This takes place about eight months after "Commencement". The Imperials set a trap for the Rebels on an isolated colony world, which strands the Coronas on the planet while the Imperials hunt for them. I posted Revision A (9/04, 71 pages) on the JC Forums as a stand-alone story, where it was also reviewed in the Fan Fiction Newsletter in March 2004. The forum HTML link for Rev. C is here for reference, but the story posts were truncated in a software change with the forum. Ground is the beginning of a plot arc during that particular stretch of time and is my favorite story. If a person was to only read one story of mine ever, this is the one I would ask him or her to read. NOTE: Revision C is considerably different (and, in my opinion, much better) in some areas from Revs. A or B.

Revision A (3-26-07) 67 pages

Waters is the direct sequel to "Solid Ground", and its Prologue begins on the night of the Epilogue in Ground (Rev. B/C). The Coronas must deal with the aftermath and consequences of the events on Lokinha, both at a personal level and at higher, more official levels. I've removed the links to Rev. A since Waters will be going into an overhaul now to accommodate the changes made to Rev. C of "Solid Ground" that waterfall down. I'm not sure when Rev. B of Waters will be finished.

About the Author

"So we've been outnumbered / raided and now cornered. / It's hard to fight when the fight ain't fair. / We're getting stronger now / find things they never found. / They might be bigger / but we're faster and never scared. / You can walk away, say we don't need this / but there's something in your eyes says we can beat this. / Because these things will change. / Can you feel it now? / These walls that they put up to hold us back will fall down. / This revolution, the time will come / for us to finally win. / We sing hallelujah, we sing hallelujah. / Tonight we'll stand, get off our knees / fight for what we've worked for all these years. / And the battle was long, it's the fight of our lives..." - Taylor Swift, "Change"
