    I wanted to reply quickly before I read the Epilogue.

    As a former steadfast lurker, I have to say I am so glad I joined the party. Due in large part to The Commander's wonderful writing ability, the Wraith madness & support and of course because I finally gave into home Internet access, I have enjoyed the time since de-lurking.

    The Wraiths, the Cantina, Legacy... it is well worth de-lurking!!

    Lurk if you must, but I for one hope to "meet" you all.

    'night

    JaY

    EDIT: NOOOOOOOOO!!! I feel just like I did 10 days ago after "My name is not Michael Vaughn" and then WHAM! HIT.BY.A.TRUCK

    TKL You love the cliffhangers, hah???

    I need some sleep before I make a coherent response.

    I haven't been here in a while. Guess I need to go back and read it all again.

    ...That'll take about two months.

    It took 2 years and 10,000 posts for this story to be complete. Thats gotta be some kinda record.

    Good job.

    Oh my gosh.

    Ok, well. I have to think about what I want to say right now, especially since finding the epilogue comes on heals of my finishing ROTS.

    Wow.

    ok i'm gonna post in the cantina. Try to come up with a song for us denilars and as a tribute. Hopefully it'll be up by Saturday.

    TKL. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
    This story is amazing and always made me think.

    Oh my goodness! That was a beautiful epilog [face_love] [:D] .... I can hardly think of anything to say except...

    Please [face_praying] give us the next installment soon! I can't wait to find out what happens!

    Did Jaina make Valin blackout? That seemed a little suspicious to me. [face_thinking] Has she taken Keira with her? ( I find this unlikely.)

    Poor Kyp... I didn't expect myself to feel so sorry for him. :eek:

    Welcome to all the lukers and former lukers! [:D]

    Alright. Here goes.

    TKL: In the last few years (two, can you believe it) since this story began you have brought us from laughter to tears in many, many different ways. More importantly, you have brought us together to form a community that through EoTP and Legacy, have us thinking about what you write rather than merely just commenting. For that I think you. Your original characters have always brought a little piece of you into the universe i know we all love, and after reading Stover's ROTS I ache at the simliarites between Jaina's struggley in Legacy and Padme's in Revenge. Bravo.

    I know that not knowing Fee, Rane, Keira, Tanner, Katya, Briaun (to name a few) would make it difficult to make this very very convincing story even more real. Your characterization of Kyp, Jaina, Jagged, Valin, Luke, Mara etc are phenomenal.

    I applaud all your work, and look forward to reading the third part as it comes.

    Can I reiterate, that I"m glad that Jaina isn't dead, and that her pulling away from her bond with Kyp was the most shocking thing? I don't know why it felt the way it did, but how she could sever her bond, take Keira and Katya AND leave her lightsaber behind...

    This story can go anywhere.

    I know now why the final words of Stover's novelization meant so much to you. I agree. One flickering flame, its light shrinking the shadows that surround us can bring so much hope to the universe.

    And Jaina...

    What can I say. I've been moved.

    And so..I leave you with a song...from the UK as requested (although its an older UK band that i'm not sure sings anymore..)

    Nobody Knows
    Tony Rich Project

    She can't pretend that Jag did not go away
    These four walls closing more everyday
    And Jaina's dying inside
    And nobody knows it but us
    Like a clown, she puts on a show
    The pain is real even if nobody knows
    And she's crying inside
    And nobody knows it but us

    Why didn't TKL say
    The things we needed her say
    How could she our Jagged get away
    Now our world is tumbling down

    We can say it so clearly [Sidebar not related to the song at all: JAG's NOT DEAD]
    But Jaina's nowhere around

    Chorus:
    The nights are lonely
    The days are so sad
    And I just keep thinking about
    The love that they had
    And we're missing Jag
    And nobody knows it but us

    We carry a smile when we're broken in two
    And Zekk's a nobody without destruction too
    Jaina's trembling at night and
    Nobody knows it but us
    She lies awake it's a quarter past three
    We're screaming at night as if
    We thought Jag would hear us
    Yeah our heart is calling her
    And nobody knows it but us

    Where can this go?
    You could ask TKL heart
    But like a jigsaw puzzle
    The story's been torn all apart
    A million words couldn't say
    Just how we feel
    A million years from now you know
    I'll be loving Legacy still

    Chorus:
    The nights are lonely
    The days are so sad
    And I just keep thinking about
    The love that they had
    And we're missing Jag
    And nobody knows it but us

    Yesterday morning Jaina hit
    The dusty road
    We're gonna find her wherever
    Ever she might go
    We're gonna unload our hearts and hope
    That he'll come back to her
    Said when TKL weaves her story...

    Chorus:
    The nights are lonely
    The days are so sad
    And I just keep thinking about
    The love that they had
    And we're missing Jag
    And nobody knows it but us


    A bit depressing I know..sorry, but I wanted to keep it to the mood of the Epilogue...

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!

    Hi,

    I have been quietly reading Legacy and EOtP for a while now and all I have to say is WOW. I have loved Star Wars since my father read me "The Courtship of Princess Leia" when I was six. Ever since my dad first introduced me to the Star Wars universe I have read almost everything I can get my hands on but after the last NJO book Star Wars slowed down for me. However, then I found EOtP and I was blown away. Jaina is my favorite character and I was so thankful that you took the time to write her characterization so well. You gave Jaina her spirit back when so many NJO writers made her look pathetic. You really are an amazing writer and I wanted to come out of hiding to tell you how incredible I think your work is. I can't wait to read the third addition. Thank you again for taking you time to share you stories with us.

    Hi. I'm not one of your readers or anything, but I've seen Legacy on these boards for a long old time. And I wanted to congratulate you on completing it, judging by how many readers you have I'm sure it is one of the best fics to come on to these boards. Anyways, congrats.

    I am a long time reader of your stories and I just wanted to tell you I much I appreciate them! [face_love] I'm afraid I drowned in The Nile, but that's alright. ;)

    So there's gonna be a third part? I can't wait!
