    Actually, J.F., The two G12 statements that you compare are inconsistent, not ironic. I hate to be pedantic, but I also hate it when people throw around terms they don't understand to make it sound like they know what they're talking about.

    Actually, MasterTim, while you may perhaps be accurate in correcting JF's intent (I won't attempt to judge JF's intent and her misuse of the word ironic). You, however are both wrong - the words were neither inconsistent nor ironic.

    It seems that if more immature people read books aimed at a more mature reading level like Luceno's NJO books, for example - they may expand their vocabulary a bit and be able to use words correctly. ;)

    You know MasterTim Sockpuppet, perhaps you are right. I was just being kind, rather than mean. I should have have used a word one letter up in the alphabet: hy**********.

    The words were not hy********** either, JF (where I am presuming hy********** to be either hypothetical or hypocritical. If you meant some other word beyond either of those with your rather ambiguous statement, then please clarify.)

    Must we use socks?

    And Hambly had Mara and Lando together in some manner? I don't remember that, but then I've pretty mucvh purged the plots of her novels from my mind. Anyone care to refresh my memory?

    "I have the proof Timothy was involved in NJO !!!!"

    Inserting his creations as the "most..." (dangerous, powerful, intelligent, badass - insert whichever "kewl" concept you wish) to ever grace the GFFA does seem to be his modus operandi. :D

    maybe she got wet, and needed to change? Or she liked his clothes? Maybe Lando smooth talked her into doing that for a joke? Or the hundreds of other answers.

    Zahn gave his own explanation that some feel went beyond author's priveledge.

    Especially since Kevin got Zahn's permission by phone.

    "Do you want Luke with Mara"

    he basically said he didn't want Kevin to do it

    "Was that what you were going to say Ghengis?"

    I don't know what you were thinking, but I was going to say...ummm... from spilling a glass of water on herself. ;)

    You know, I don't think they ever described Ben's skin color in Rebirth. Maybe the reason Lando's wife has been out of the picture is because...ummm... nevermind...

    Chewie was a manly man.

    Big, tough, silent type.

    I could see it.

    He was a Hell's angel you know.

    Biking with just his bandanna.

    All across the galaxy!

    That almost brought a tear to my eye, Charlemagne.

    Here's to the great, big Wookie in the sky. Keep on ridin' Chewie - wherever you are - and keep an eye on your kid from up there. No, not Lumpy - your new one.

    I'd like to see stories stop and take a breather in the New Republic, NJO and Rebellion Eras for now ( at least with the Heroes of Yavin ) and focus on the Rise of the Empire and Old Republic eras.

    I would like the Empire to take over in the end. Not as the old one, but as the Remnant is.

    An Empire that people would support. An effective government, with subordinateswho had no thirst for power at all, a utopia...


    Though I doubt anything like that would happen.
