    That trailer was amazing.
    I could see and hear everything perfectly in my mind
    It was as perfect as the trailers for the movies.
    Now I really can't wait! *jumps around like a maniac*

    thank you everyone! i'm so sad it's over too. but i've written a little on the sequel, and i've added everyone who specified to the PM list.

    ANNOUNCEMENT:

    if anyone who had read the whole story and thinks they know it well would be willing to write a summary for me to post when i post Lies About Love i would be very very grateful. i would do it myself, but i want a reader's perspective on what they think is important and would be needed to help new readers who didn't want to read Dubious engagement to understand. thank you!

    Whew! What a ride! Being a late comer, I appreciated that you PMed me the story, Aurra. I was riveted from beginning to end - every twist and turn, every joy and pain - completely engrossed! I'm so glad I found this story! When you're ready to begin your new one, PLEASE put me on the PM list. This time, I'd like to ride from beginning to end!

    Congratulations!

    Aurra, congrats on writing such a brilliant and inspiring fic. I've really enjoyed your characterizations, original plot, and the epilogue. I know you can add me to the list of readers very excited to start reading the sequel.

    An absolutally fabulous ending to an absolutally fabulous story.

    I kinda missed a few chapters so I'll just cover everything briefly.

    I'm so glad they got Chack back, even if he won't remember everything. The wedding was beautiful (so was her dress) I'm glad Leia and Jaina kinda reconsiled even if things will never be perfect.

    Excelent job through this whole piece. =D= I hope I'll see more of your stories in the future. [:D]

    Hi! :D I'm slowly catching up. I think I'm about halfway through now. Just wanted to drop a note that I've really enjoyed this story so far. I like how you built Jaina and Jag's relationship because it seems very realistic, love growing out of nothing. I also like how they bicker every once in a while. :p

    The action is superb! My favorite bit so far (and where I just left off) is the encoded sabacc message that Jaina sent to Pellaeon. Clever little thing you thought up. :D

    I'm done! [face_dancing] Now I'll give you the laundry list of what I liked. :p

    1) Jag?s clawcraft taking the hit for Jaina - I think I gasped at this part just thinking about how much he loved her to be able to do that.

    2) Han dying - I know I gasped at this part. :_| Cruel twist to take Han away just when he and Jaina had patched things up (and I loved that subplot), but it absolutely worked for the story.

    3) Chak - I just love him. :*

    4) Jag freaking out about fatherhood - these topics always pull me into a story. It's the mush factor. [face_love] To me it was funny that after all the tight situations Jag has survived, he forgets he can apply those same skill of quick-thinking and adaptation to raising a baby. It reminds me of a humorous commercial where a guy is taking care of his baby and wondering how he could ever be responsible enough to take care of another life.

    5) The best quotes:

    Just next time, try not think about having sex with my sister. Really gross. - [face_laugh] I'll bet.

    ?He was going to blow down a house made of ferrocrete?? Myri exclaimed. ?He can't do that.?

    ?Well technically he can't talk, either,? Jag muttered.

    ?He could have growled it,? Myri said staunchly. ?But he can't blow down a house made of ferrocrete.?

    ?Fine,? Jag said. ?He used a his H3-1 Heavy Artillery laser cannon.?


    Jag shouldn't worry at all. He's going to be a great father. At the very least he knows how to tell bedtime stories. :p

    Cut her some slack. You'd be cranky if you had another person growing in your uterus, too. - Something about this was really funny, and such a Mara comment.

    We all are so eager to meet you. And then as an afterthought, Please don't hurt me... ? [face_laugh] Jaina, Jedi Knight, General, and bowled over by labor.

    You did an amazing job crafting the relationship between Jaina and Jag, not to mention your action scenes were top-notch. Why didn't the pro writers think of sending the Vong into a black hole? Would've saved the galaxy a lot of trouble. =D=
