    If you feel that the Death of Anakin Solo was necessary or had a positive influence on the NJO, or if you don't care whether or not he died, then come on in, sit back, and i'll buy you a drink.

    If you are an Anakin Fanatic, or if you cried when he died, or if you think it would have been better for him to live, then you're also welcome, but don't expect complimentary beverages.

    I personally feel that the loss of Anakin helped with the progression of the NJO. I think that he would have been too dominanat a character had he lived through SbS.

    If you're with me, then please stand up!

    I'd like to join your group-club-thingy.

    My own Pro-Anakin's death club was locked by a manager earlier today. I'm glad I'm not the only one who supports this. So, what do I have to do to join?

    I have to say that I agree! Here, here! Anakin died and it served as an important event for our characters, even if we don't quite see it yet. :)

    Thanks Shad and Rev. I'm behind you all the way. It might not seem to have served a purpose, but eventually we will all see it. If Anakin was kept around, then what would happen to Ben Skywalker once he grew up? Luke and Mara's kid would be completely eclipsed by the Anakin character. I don't hate Anakin, but it was important to the NJO for him to die, so new characters and new plots could be introduced or developed. I'll stop talking now.

    This is a pretty lifeless thread.

    Sevrence, "If it wasn't for electricity, you'd be reading this by candlelight"???

    What's that all about? Would I be reading your sig. at all if we didn't have electricity?

    I once saw this quote in a book about watching TV by canlelight, I thought it was kind of funny, so I changed it around to make it work for this board.

    It seems that this thread and the FFDA have started a little controversy over at the FADA, who, as you all know are our antithesis.

    I pose a question to the Fans Against Dead Anakin:

    It seems to me that the NJO would be completely dominated by the Anakin character. I also think that this would have detracted from the series because there would be no room for other plot lines to develop. Is there a reason(s) for Anakin to have livd?

    Please post a reply on either board, if you care.

    THANK GOD! People that see beyond the shallow truth that Anakin was a major character, a Jedi, and their favorite character! He should have died, or someone else important. While it would have been nice if he'd figured out the Vong connection to the Force, he needed punishment for murdering thousands of Hapans. Yes, Thrackan fired Centerpoint, but Anakin DIDN'T.

    Great to have you aboard, JediMaster Horn, and great to know there is someone else out there that knows the truth

    Someone should have died yes, Anakin no. I vote for Jacen.

    I offer this place as a haven for those evicted from the second FFDA. Only less flaming here, especially from the FADA, please.

    I wish Anakin hadn't died. However, I can see how it has been of benefit to the storyline. And I have come to terms with the fact that there is no way to bring him back that isn't utterly cheesy and would therefore cheapen the entire NJO.

    I'm not Pro-Anakin dying so much as I'm Pro-Him-Staying-Dead.

    I think to bring him back would cheapen his sacrifice. One of the things that made Anakin so great in my mind is his sacrifice, and to reverse that would make him nothing IMO.

    I like Anakin's character too much to have him destroyed.

    Thanks.

    I just figure that he's a martyr. If he comes back, he's just another hero in a galaxy of heros. Sure, he'd beat death, but then death means nothing. It also has too much of a Star Trek feel*.

    One of the things that makes Anakin Skywalker's confession so powerful is his declaration that he'd stop people from dying. That just creeps me out, and for Anakin Solo to do basically the same thing would also creep me out.


    *Before i get flamed, I too am a ST fan, just not very rabid, especially after Voyager's finale.

    Not to be overly sanctimonius (sp?), but how is this any different from FFDA (which is relocated to the Haters's Community)???

    Please continue this discussion in the Anakin Solo Fan Clkub, which is where all discussion pertaining to the character of Anakin Solo should go.

    Thanks
