    Mara is only scheduled to show up in this diary in March, and that is if i keep posting every week. There really is a lot to cover in the 1st book.

    I think they mention Chewie extending his life debt in the books, not sure which. As for his wife, if I wee her I'd get a 2nd husband since the first one in NEVER home. :p

    I don't doubt it. I just think it is odd that he never seems to want to be with his family. He had more time with his nephew Lowie. Maybe Malla is a real nag with a huge "Honey Do" list for Chewie.

    A diplomatic mission to Bimmisaari, huh? Be interesting to see how this turns out.

    I like the history of the Falcon/Envoy, with her having transported Artoo in the past.

    No one seems to care what the Falcon knows except for R2.. A nice tie in to the past.

    R2 is right though, Leia is neglecting her Jedi Training which is why I fixed it! :) And if Disney has her trained as a Jedi that will put them in my good graces; depending what else they do.

    Could you put me back into the conversation? I accidentally left the conversation.

    Awesome! I agree with Artoo, Leia does need the practice.

    Aw. He considers the Falcon family. Why do I find that so darn cute?

    Great entry. And no, poor Chewie does not know what he's in for - becoming a overgrown, underused baby sitter for the next 20 books, and then you know, getting killed by a moon.

    »» I am excited. For the first time in 1254 days the entire living family is together. I know I'm using the term 'family' loosely since only two of us are blood-related, but I have come to consider the others as members as well. So it is I, C-3PO, the Millennium Falcon, Master Luke, Princess Leia, Captain Solo and Chewbacca. It's just like the good old days of the Rebel Alliance.

    It made me very smiley that R2 includes the Falcon into the category family members. My smile grew wider, when he criticized Leia about practicing badly when it is up to her jedi skills.

    At the end of a week sick at home with the flue this sweet fanfic is like medicine. Thank you!

    Great story! Like others have already mentioned, it's an awesome detail that R2 considers the Falcon to be family. I would totally read the Falcon's memoirs.

    I got a laugh out of R2 saying Leia needed to practice her Jedi skills, heh heh.

    Keep up the super work, and congrats on your 2012 Diary win! :)

    Woot on the win for 2012 DDC. Esp. in light of the loooong hiatus @};- [:D] And yes, that always bit that Leia didn't pursue her Force skills more earlier [face_sigh] I love AUs where this is developed, and how that could've tipped the balance in many crucial events perhaps [face_thinking]

    I missed three entries. This is my punishment for something, and I'm not quite sure what.

    Entry One: I can totally see Threepio in the apron now. And I can also see him being as excited as his servomotors can get when he recieves it!

    Entry Two: Artoo worries a lot about Anakin Junior. And with good reason. That boy causes a whole lot of problems for himself.

    Entry Three: Loved Artoo's opinions on Jedi Training, and especially loved him talking with the Falcon!

    Added to convo list please?[face_batting]

    Thanks everyone for reading and reviewing. [:D]



    For this diary, I'll be using the Convo system instead of Tags because it's more reliable and will remind me to PM the sock. And if anyone wants to cancel, you can just press 'leave conversation'.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



    Entry Four

    ENTRY » START NEW
    GALACTIC DATE » 44:4:23 GrS
    GALACTIC POSITION » En route to Coruscant
    SITUATION » Leaving Bimmisaari


    »» Our trip to Bimmisaari did not go as expected. The following account was related to me by C-3PO since, on the Falcon’s insistence, I stayed aboard to monitor (and fix) whatever changes Chewbacca was planning to make on her stabilizers.

    »» The first setback our diplomatic group encountered was that the Bimms’ chief negotiator had fallen ill and therefor their first meeting would have to be adjourned. Instead, the group was invited to visit the local market place. In retrospect, they really should have seen it coming.

    »» So there they were, roaming through the market when suddenly they found out their guide had strangely disappeared and that they were surrounded by short gray aliens whose species C-3PO was not able to identify. Naturally, the aliens were armed, unlike Captain Solo who had been forced to leave his blaster in the ship. At this time, C-3PO told me that Master Luke had separated from the group earlier and, when the fight broke out, he had been detained elsewhere. C-3PO told me it took Master Luke 4.3 minutes to join the rest of the party and that because Chewbacca and I arrived at the scene with the Falcon, responding to Captain Solo’s distress comm (see, backup). By then that part of the market place had been turned into shambles and C-3PO had found himself restrained by the hardened spraynet the aliens sprayed on everyone who was too slow to duck.

    »» Once the group was back on the Falcon, an argument started concerning what should be done about the diplomatic mission. This argument was put to a stop when Captain Solo informed everyone that he had already plotted and activated a course back to Coruscant and would only come back if escorted by a squadron of X-wings or a Star Destroyer.

    »» On the bright side, the Princess is finally convinced she really needs to practice her Jedi skills. WHAT HAVE I BEEN SAYING ALL ALONG?!


    ENTRY » CLOSE » ENCRYPT ENTRY


    ENTRY » INSERT ADENDUM

    »» After reporting on the aborted mission to the Council, the Princess requested a leave from her diplomatic duties in order to pursue her Jedi training. Her request was denied and the reason given was that there is far too much work to be done and not enough diplomats to do it.

    »» I did a head count of the human resources available in the New Republic and came up with 257 diplomats and 1 Jedi. One would think one Jedi is not enough for a growing working government; who would take over the Jedi's workload when Master Luke needs to call in sick or go on a vacation? Oh, yes... Master Luke has never been on a vacation and he does not call in sick, even when he's just been attacked by a Wampa.

    »» In conclusion, the Princess might have to clone herself if she wants to train to be a Jedi and Master Luke could use a few clones to help him out also. It is a shame that ol' Palps confiscated all the cloning technology in the galaxy. I wonder what he did with it.

    [face_laugh] For the part about cloning Leia and Luke. Although Luke does get cloned.

    But R2 does have a point that they need more Jedi. In my opinion Leia should have told them to go to the Devil (or the Star Wars equivalent) and trained as a Jedi.

    Lol. Nice foreshadowing! Artoo is going to rethink that statement sometime in December :)

    Nice job recounting the info - this must be hard since Artoo doesn't see all of the action like he does in the movies.

    Oh, Artoo, bite your...hm. No tongue. ;)

    I love his thoughts on how there are many diplomats but only one Jedi. I agree that you'd think the NR would want more of that valuable asset on their side!!

    What a nice update. Reading it on my actual birthday feels like a birthday present. Thank you!

    Two Leias would be too much for one Han Solo. He hardly can handle one princess.
