he spent several years as an intragalactic entrepreneur, running his own shipping business. Loved that line! Easily the best euphemism for "smuggler" I've run across, in pro- or fan-fics. I've gotta say I loved the story, and will certainly stick around for the sequel (is this where it will be posted, btw?). You've prompted me to give Luke and Mara a chance, when I didn't think that was possible (I've always fast-forwarded through the "boring Luke parts" in the movies). Congrats and thanks for finishing the story (all too uncommon in many fandoms, sadly). Thanks again, FreighterPilot, worshipper of parenthetical statements, apparently!
