Disclaimer: Borrowing for fun. Title: A Match Made... Author: Jade eyes Genre: Mush/humor - AU, but my canon Timeframe: Right after CoTJ. Characters: See above. AN: Luke and Mara are sorta oblivious :duh: so Corran and Mirax help them out ~~~~~~ Corran Who was this Callista lady anyway? She wasn't all there in Corran's opinion. He hadn't been around mara much, but she seemed more Luke's type. Callista seemed smitten with Luke since the "grand rescue" but he acted bemused and perhaps infatuated more in the abstract than by the person herself. But Mara -- Corran knew passion, even when it was unknown to the one feeling it ... it showed up whenever Luke talked about Mara -- there was an excitement and a sparkle there. There was a zealous intensity as Luke watched Mara do katas and even walk across the room that was absent when he watched Callista. He told Mirax that Luke often seemed ... impatient with Callista's gushing. "You'll never get them to admit to anything, they haven't already." Mirax said. "Two more stubborn gundarks you'll never find. And especially now, Mara's avoiding Luke, even the mention of his name gets her in a snit." "We'll just have to think of something to get them together." "Without them knowing beforehand? Something that doesn't feel like a date, but keeps them isolated together so they'll ..." "Either kill each other or ... do something more constructive." Corran finished with a laugh. +++++ TBC: Options to readers, to choose from for the next scene: Ask L/M to dinner as friends, i.e., the Horns ask Luke and also Mara but don't tell them the other is coming, that is, Luke doesn't know Mara's gonna be there, and vice versa. Or: Say there's a meeting of a trading contact to Mara and a Jedi hopeful for Luke and then lock them in a room together This could involve coded /written messages so no face to face contact with the sender. ______ Tags available upon request.
