Forums > Senate Hall archive > How to Become Canon

Hi I'm New and I dont have much to contribute to Wookieepedia. But I did think that this would be a good place to do some early ideas for my own fanfiction. I'm wondering where I can write this and how I can make it canon. Please Help!! WhiteKnight 23:41, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

  • Fanfiction can never become canon... canon is what is officially produced by George Lucas or licensed by LucasFilms (the Star Wars novels, comics, games, etc). --Danik Kreldin 23:43, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

      • then how bout the canonical respect of my fellow wookieepedians?WhiteKnight 00:12, 10 April 2007 (UTC)
        • We're sorry, but it can't happen, dude ;p Unless you were hired to write the next Star Wars novels, your fanfictions can't be canon and thus can't be used here at Wookieepedia, which is an encyclopedia of Star Wars canon material. That's why there exists the Star Wars Fanon Wiki ( which is meant for aspiring young fiction writers such as yourself to place your stories and material. But this site is for official SW material only. --Danik Kreldin 00:16, 10 April 2007 (UTC)
          • I dont know why but I feel like i've been stuck with the lower class or something. unfortunately i have always despised non-canon EU but if thats how it's going to be.Thank you for letting me know.WhiteKnight 00:20, 10 April 2007 (UTC)
          • What are you talking about? ;p I mean, I can't write a story and request it be considered canon. Canon isn't flexible... it's only what's official in the Star Wars universe. It's not our rules, either. Comes from Lucas Licensing itself. So this Wiki just represents what is official (ie, canon, not fanfiction) in the SW Universe. The Star Wars Fanon Wiki is for fanfictions and fanon (fan-created material, not official material). Anyone's story, whether it be mine, yours, or any other SW fan, is fanon and cannot be canon unless it somehow gets accepted by Lucas Licensing (in the case of the What's The Story? stories). It's nothing against you, it's just the rules of the SW universe. --Danik Kreldin 00:24, 10 April 2007 (UTC)
            • Honestly, I think you just misunderstand what canon is. See Canon. --Danik Kreldin 00:25, 10 April 2007 (UTC)
              • No I knew what canon was. What I misunderstood was how it was accepted and I thought that their was somewhere On this Site that had fanfiction that was in-Universe as opposed to Off the story line ,i.e. something about Kyp Durron during the Swarm War (if he survived I dont know?) not Kyp Durron Vs. Predetor, I thought Fanon Wiki was just Infinity-esqe stuff.So OFF to Fanon Wiki for me, but I will still be here of course. 00:59, 10 April 2007 (UTC)
                • Wait a second I just went to Fanon Wiki and I'm still logged on. Are Fanon wiki and Wookieepedia joint Websites?WhiteKnight 00:59, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

No, but they're all a part of Wikia ( So if you log on to one Wikia site, in this case Wookieepedia, you'll be logged on on another. We have no other relationship, other than directing fanon users to there. --Danik Kreldin 01:32, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

  • well thanks anyways.WhiteKnight 15:25, 10 April 2007 (UTC)
