Darth_Cable ? Yep, you?re on the list! JediFalcon ? Great update and loved the way Ben reflected on how Tatooine was a turning point for his heritage. --Thanks! In some ways, it really does seem like everything comes back to Tatooine. Rew ? So I was bored last night, thought the title of this one seemed interesting, clicked and started skimming. The next thing I knew it was well past my bedtime, and I was completely hooked. --Yes! Caught another one. Welcome to the craziness, and I hope it keeps you hooked. I can?t tell you how many times this exact same thing has happened to me when I was just casually perusing the fanfic boards, lol. Might I be added to the PM list please? --You are added! Anyway, Anakin sure is going through a hard time right now, isn't he? I'm sure he's going to have some choice words for good ol' Palpatine when (if) he returns to his own time. *just got a mental image of a Millennium Falcon/DeLorean time machine hybrid* --*pictures the DeLorean Falcon time machine* Nice! I think the part I'm looking forward to most is when Anakin and Allana meet face-to-face. From what I've seen, Allana is already showing signs of being very spunky, outspoken, and even crudely blunt at times. Putting in her in the same room with the man who is (however indirectly) responsible for her father turning into Darth Caedus--well, I suspect there will be fireworks. --Ooh, me too! Everything?s been so Anakin-Ben focused up until now, but I?m really looking forward to writing the interaction between Anakin and Allana. As for fireworks? I can guarantee there will be explosions of some kind in the next few chapters. (As one who is an unabashed Jacen Solo fanboy, I'm looking forward to seeing how your Allana turns out.) --In some ways I?m still feeling out Allana?s character, and since I haven?t read any of the EU books after Revelation, I really am sorta winging it here. I figure she?s bound to be different from any canon version of Allana because the world she grew up in is so drastically altered, but I do want her to be recognizable as Jacen and Tenel Ka?s daughter and as a member of the Skywalker-Solo clan. So yeah! I hope you enjoy it! Let me know how I?m doing. It is very depressing how this is a galaxy where Luke and Leia and Mara (and Han, I think?) are already dead. --Alas, I have this nasty habit of killing the characters I love. I am an angst monger, there?s no fighting it. (And yes, Han is dead. ) Everyone - So I?ve hit a wall as far as DRL is concerned, and I place the blame on work. The ideas are all there, and even most of the scenes; it?s just working up the energy to turn it into a chapter that is lacking. I will try to get that going again so that you all can have a new chapter in early July. Thanks for being patient with me and hanging in there!
