''[[http://www.siubhan.com/sithacademy/ The Sith Academy]]'' was a StarWars FanFic writing group with a shared AlternateUniverse, focused on the (regrettably) minor character Darth Maul. Initially a parody series centered on Maul's "training" (read: exploitation) by his master, Darth Sidious, it took a sharp turn into FoeYay territory by the [[CrackPairing intentionally absurd pairing]] of Maul with a young Obi-Wan Kenobi.

The series provides examples of:
* AlternateUniverseFic
* BigNo: a RunningGag of the series.
* CampGay: Sidious, much to Maul's (and the reader's) great disgust.
--> Did every Sith have to like boys? When he was finally Master, would he be like Sidious, a flambouyant, wrinkled old queen, who has the bad taste of dressing like Mick Jagger on crack?
* CanonDefilement: [[{{Invoked}} Very intentionally]] done to all of the canon characters.
* CatsAreMean: ''waves paw'' Bring Me Tuna. Now.

* LivingWithTheVillain: Obi Wan is Maul's next-door neighbor, and it's later learned that [[spoiler:[[LukeIAmYourFather Sidious is Obi-Wan's biological father]]]], yet all of the Jedi except Yoda are in total denial that Maul and Sidious are Sith, even when Maul says so to their faces.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Despite the ''StarWars'' setting, you can easily tell when this series was written. People have CD's, VCR's and dial-up Internet. There are also numerous pop cultural references to things like boy bands, the SpiceGirls, ''Series/{{Teletubbies}},'' Furbies, ''TheBlairWitchProject'', and ''AllyMcBeal'', along with stories about Y2K and the contested 2000 US Presidential election.
