Avalon, author of "Cast My Soul to the Sea", and other fan fiction, says this of Alee:
At first glance, one thinks "oh no, not another Mary-Sue story". But Karen's Alee is not just a Mary-Sue (actually, she's not a Mary-Sue at all!). This well-written series chronicles various points in the life of a single Jedi Knight and the various characters (some familiar, some not) she touches. Karen (aka Quiller) manages to weave Alee into the entire Star Wars saga in a very believable and fun way. I enjoyed all the stories immensely! NOTE - I recommend reading the stories in the order they were written, rather than "chronological" order.
The Moment : One, Two, Three, Four. - This tale must be read first. The defining moment in Alee's life. (PG)
The stories are listed in chronological order, top to bottom. The order they were written, after The Moment, is listed in brackets behind the title.
Before The Moment:
A Matter of Justice (2) : 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. - A fateful mission. The Council's ruling. (PG)
It Makes No Difference (3) : 1. - It was such a harmless prank... (G)
Out of the Depths (4) : 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13. - Paths cross. Sparks fly. (PG-13)
Death Song (6) : 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. - When family beckons, chaos ensues. (PG-13)
After The Moment:
Letting Go (5) : 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. - What happens when what you want is out of reach? (PG-13)
Mine to Share (1) : 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. - Curiosity meets a mysterious past. (PG)
Force Meeting (7) : 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7. - Some things are meant to be. (PG) *This tale must be read last, as it contains spoilers for every other story in the saga.
|**Author's note: I wrote these stories long before AOTC, and even before the Tahl storyline in the Jedi Apprentice books. There is romance in Alee's life, and I find myself hardpressed to apologize for it. I have never been convinced it was completely forbidden for Old Republic Jedi to love because it was LucasArts sources that said Ki-Adi-Mundi had daughters (one of whom he had to rescue from the Hutts). Ki sat on the Council and yet had children. Are we to assume that Jedi are allowed to pro-create but not to love? Perhaps Episode Three will prove me wrong, once and for all, but until then ...|
