    The Essential Reader's Companion.

    @Briannakin my favorite drawing is on page 394. That is a beautiful drawing of Jag and Jaina. :D There are also a ton of beautiful Luke and Mara drawings. Yummy. But tear out page 320 and burn it!

    :p It's like a SW porn magazine to me...I don't read the articles, I just look at the pretty pictures.

    Ack! I watched the worst movie yesterday. It was Resident Evil (whatever the latest release was called...Retribution or some like that). I was so confused. My son is sitting next to me trying to explain who these zombie people were and what the Umbrella company is and why their guns can shoot 200 shots using one 30 round clip.

    Finally I guess we got to a part of the movie where there is a plot point. My son turns to me and says, "Are you thinking what I'm thinking?"

    I said to him, "I don't know, are you thinking, 'I wish I was watching Star Wars because Luke Skywalker is so sexy'?"

    He says I am gross and walks away. So I decide to watch another movie we got from Netflix. Later he comes back and sees me grinning while watching a video and asks me what I am watching. I tell him, "Magic Mike". He looks at the video with hunky guys gyrating their body and he turns bright red and walks away saying I'm gross. lol!:p

    Luke Skywalker looking like a love sick puppy dog as he welcomes his student Cray Mingla aboard Mara Jade's ship Hunter's Luck (that's what the book says). I am pretty sure the scene is of Cray turned Callista though because Mara Jade looks really put out in the background.

    Sorry...I'm just not a fan of Children of the Jedi or Callista. I am a L/M 'shipper.

    Lol, you are the greatest mother ever.

    394 is really pretty. For some reason I really like 402. Mara isn't in the foreground, BUT SHE ISN'T WEARING THE DUMB CATSUIT. I also enjoyed the image of Darth Zannah on 2. She looks like she hasn't slept in weeks (and I'm not talking about the tatoos).

    I think I'm going read the articles I really want to read (mostly the NJO ones because I've given up ever trying to mke it through all 19 books of that), then I am going to put it in my bathroom. The most of the 'articles' are the perfect length for entertainment while you are brushing your teeth or doing your other business. I did the same thing with Jedi Path.

    Nah, pretty sure it's Cray. Callista/Cray had been in the escape pod and was banged up when they found her, IIRC.

    I think the picture is hilarious. They're trolling all the L/M fans. I told Erich Schoenweiss (the editor) that at Celebration Vi, and he grinned.

    Yeah, I think it is Cray because that image is on Cray's wookieepedia page and wookieepedia is always right. Anyways, didn't the body's eyes instantly change from brown to grey when Callista entered it? The woman has brown eyes in the picture.

    It doesn't matter. Cray and her droid boyfriend are creepy enough to make me shudder.:(

    I'm not much of a Mara fan (or at least an L/M fan 'cause yeesh, Luke became whipped), but I haaaaated Callista.

    I'm just thankful that Barbara Hambly only wrote like 2 EU books IIRC. I'm not sure what of her EU books were her ideas or her editor's ideas, either way I did not like her writing style or what she wrote about. Luke's first real romance could have been... much less weird.

    I think if Hambly had Callista frozen in carbonite and found and defrosted by Luke and they fell in love I think that would have worked. The bodysnatching I think is what caused people not to like the entire situation. Think about it; Cray is so determined to have her lover cheat death that she puts his personality in a droid body...that's weird enough. Then she basically commits suicide to be with her dead lover giving her body to Callista...I know that should sound romantic in a Romero and Julliet kind of way...but it just seems to me like a form of untreated mental illness...PTSD or severe depression. So out of this horribly tragic mess I am supposed to be happy that Luke found romance in this way?! No, it just didn't work for me.

    And then there was Akhana. Or however you spell her name. Lying, manipulative, self-righteous witch. I'm amused that she and Callista both bit it recently.

    Didn't Jacen have a snarky remark about her that he said to Luke? I can't remember what it was. Something to the effect that Luke was a worse student than Jacen...but I got the distinct impression that there was some other meaning. Maybe Jacen bootknocked with the White Witch also. ;)

    It seemed like Jacen was cruising the universe meeting Luke's old girlfriends. I wonder if he and Lumiya hit it off. :p

    Its a wonder Luke hadn't fallen to the Darkside because of all these bad relationships. The whole "attachment leads to blah blah and the Darkside" thing with the Jedi and all. Luke does know how to pick them though.

    First girl he liked turns out to be his twin sister. (This one probably started it all lol)

    Next girl ends up becoming a cyborg hell bent on killing him.

    Next one, I think, does some body swapping.

    Next manipulates and lies to him.

    There's probably another one that I'm not aware of.

    And the one he ends up marrying and having a kid with had been sent to assassinate him.

    Yep, Anakin and Padme are probably shaking their heads at their son's poor choices in women. At least Leia turned out alright. [face_laugh]

    Lumiya wasn't a cyborg when Luke was with her. She ended up that way because Luke shot her down. He was using the Force to determine friend or foe instead of his ship computer and blew her out of the sky. There was Jem that he found tied to a tree. In the comics he dated some woman named Mary from Solay. She died in the war against the Empire. There was some lady he dated thinking it was a friend but it was really a Soul Vampire or something, he found out and dumped her. He has horrible luck with women.

    Luke has bad taste in women? ;)

    Only ones in that family with a decent relationship is Leia/Han. Even Jaina married a guy she threw into a tree and into a wall.

    LOL! I like Jag. He puts up a with a lot of bull from Jaina. She treated him badly in a lot of the books. She's lucky to have him.

    Come on, would you rather see her rubbing elbows with Zekk? :p

    But you are right...Ben's first girlfriend was a Sith. o_O

    All this talk about Luke's bad relationships reminds me that I never posted "Untouchable" here. Muahahahaha. Maybe I should do that...

    Didn't Kyp used to babysit Jaina and change her diapers when she was a kid? :p Come on, you are telling me Kyp and Han are good buddies and Kyp never once hung around Jaina as a toddler?

    Creepy!o_O

    There's no canon to support him babysitting her. That's entirely fanon.

    ETA: Only to our generation. What about Emma and Mr Knightley? :p

    Large age differences can work in both real life and in fandom, depending on the person and the readers. I wanted to put an OC of mine with Valin Horn despite the 17 year age difference, but I figured most of my readers might be a little weird-ed out, so I didn't do it, despite the fact that there is like a 16 year difference between Lando and Tendra. I've read a number of good Kyp/Jaina stories, but I think they have to be done right.

    Buffy was 16 and Angel was 240-something! And in my series, my one character is four thousand years younger than the other one . . .

    Age differences creep me out only if the older person knew the younger person when they were a child. Like Celine Dion and her manager. Kind of weird.

    That said, I'm eight years older than my boyfriend, and while that's not a huge age difference, my mom and aunt were initially concerned about it. Which is a complete double standard because they wouldn't have batted an eye if I was dating someone eight years older than me. :p

    I really don't think Kyp, at 16, was much interested in hanging out with a two-year-old, and he certainly wasn't going to be allowed around them after the whole Suncrusher/Exar Kun thing. So his contact with them was pretty casual, and only for a few weeks at most, until he went to the academy. I'm pretty sure Threepio did the diaper changing if it was necessary and they weren't potty trained at that age.

    That's what I meant. It's not the age difference that bothers me as much as Kyp knew the Solo family when Jaina was a child. I know there is not much written about their interactions but wasn't Han all buddy-buddy with Kyp after their escape form Kessel? Are you telling me in all the years that Jaina was growing up around the Jedi she didn't have interactions with Kyp? It is just the 'Friend of the Family' aspect that creeps me out. If they met as adults I could care less.
