    I don?t think she was amused.

    No, but we fangirls were![face_laugh]

    I think I now have a chance to live a normal life?well as normal as possible in this crazy galaxy.

    Exactly my thoughts. Besides, he's hanging out with Solos, Skywalkers and smugglers (and a future Jade-Skywalker ;) ). His life will never be "normal".

    A normal life is highly overrated. ;)

    I am very glad Mara is adjusting more and seems to be fitting in with Luke and family.

    :D

    I told her if she ever got around to having sex with Luke, her kids would probably look like me. I don?t think she was amused.

    Yummy - no, she probably wasn't amused, more like don't put sweet wishes/dreams into my head ;)

    Thanks everybody for reading. I think you're right...Mark is a huge L/M 'shipper. LOL!

    Entry 14. Coruscant

    Force! I had a grat time tnite! I?m so wasted! I drank wine! Karrde ajd Han went wtih me! I pushd MaraintoLuke?s arms! I thin,nk they finnaly kissed!



    Entry 15. Coruscant

    I am never ever going to drink again! Stang, my head hurts. I don't even remember writing my previous entry. I faintly remember pushing Mara into Luke?s arms and telling them to kiss! I don?t remember much after that. I didn?t hear any moaning, groaning or headboard banging in the room next to me where Mara is staying, so I guess Skywalker didn?t stay the night. I hope she's in a good mood this morning.

    I did get hired by Talon Karrde to be his security officer. Finally I'll be earning my keep. There's nothing more frustrating than being totally dependent on others. Mara and Luke buy everything for me like parents would for a child. In a way, I am like their grown child. I came from Luke?s DNA and I see Mara as a mother-figure, but there comes a time when all children must leave home and become independent. Karrde is giving me that chance.

    And it doesn?t hurt that I am going to be a smuggler. Mara says 'trader', but I am pretty sure we?re smugglers. That sounds exciting. And I'll be working with Mara, which is nice.

    I need to close and get something to eat. I?m always so hungry.

    Lol! Entry 14 reminds me of drunk texts my older sister has sent me.

    Entry 15 was sweet. I love how he describes himself as a 'grown child'

    That's the Skywalker genes at work, Mark! ;)

    Entry #14 [face_laugh] [face_laugh] definitely lost "Home row" there on the keyboard ;) [face_laugh] [face_mischief]

    Entry #15 - Mark's a total trip! And I know the feeling - I'm always ready to eat. :D

    Thanks everybody for reading. Drunk Mark is funny, but I think he learned his lesson. And he needs a job otherwise he won't feel like an equal. Being a copy of somebody has to be difficult for the man.

    Entry 16. Coruscant

    Karrde?s crew will be leaving to go on a run of the Hydian Way tomorrow. I?m excited, but I can tell Mara isn?t. Finally she?s admitted to herself that she likes Luke and now she is going to be gone for a month. Her and Luke have been on a couple dates so far. When she comes back to the Solo?s apartment she is very distracted. Even without the Force I could guess she?s probably thinking about Luke?but since I do have the Force I know she absolutely is thinking about Luke. She thinks about him a lot?and I mean a lot. I have trouble shutting out her thoughts; she is almost broadcasting her desire for him. I wish they would just have sex and get it over with. The sexual tension is just getting to be too much.

    She has these very erotic dreams that I sometimes can?t help but pick up through the Force. I?m glad Luke?s a Jedi because he's going to need the Force to pull off some of the activities she?s fantasizing about. I try to shield out her thoughts, but while asleep it?s difficult. I?ll be in the middle of a great dream where I?m eating a huge meal with some lovely lady and then the next thing I know Luke pops into my dream wearing a low cut, C-ring bathing suit and I wake up screaming ?For Force sake Mara, SHIELD YOUR THOUGHTS!?

    [face_laugh] Oh Mark. Just be thankful Luke is wearing SOMETHING in those dreams.

    great dream where I?m eating a huge meal with some lovely lady

    Some forshadowing perhaps?

    LOLOL!! Poor Mark. Too bad he can't share those dreams with us fangirls, though. [face_mischief]

    I love how he's even dreaming of food. [face_laugh]

    [face_laugh] [face_laugh] I'm sitting here, reading that, laughing my head off and my little brother is staring at me like I'm a freak and told me to stop. But I can't! The mental image is just too much! [face_laugh]

    Thanks everybody for reading. Yeah, I think Mark's dream about eating dinner with a lovely lady might be foreshadowing. He needs to eat, he's a growing boy. I was planning on trying to catch up with my current story Second to None with these diary entries and then for the rest of the months I will follow along with the canon books and have Mark remark on things until we get to the most current books. Of course it would be AU because Mark had changed things by just being alive. Anyway, that's my plan.

    Thanks again for reading.

    ENTRY 17. Wild Karrde

    We left on our first run. Mara is moping around the Wild Karrde and missing her Jedi. I try to cheer her up, but usually everything I do just gets me a smack upside the head.

    I don?t know what is happening with my body. I am so incredibly hungry all the time. My pants are getting tighter, but I?m not getting fat?I?m just getting bigger. Mara thinks C?baoth tinkered with Skywalker?s DNA when he made me. I am taller, stockier, more muscular?Stang!! I?m hot looking! Maybe I?ll be one of those smugglers with a girl in every starport. Although, I?m positive Mara would neuter me with her lightsaber if I ended up leaving a trail of skycrawlers around the galaxy. That would not be a good thing.

    I don?t think I need to worry about an impromptu lightsaber castration though, since I haven?t managed to actually date a woman yet. It?s not that I haven?t met women. There are plenty of ladies to be found in smuggler hangouts?but not the type to build a relationship with?and I am not paying credits to lose my virginity. Gods I can?t imagine what would happen if I did that and Mara found out. I would be so embarrassed. Mara and I have some weird Force bond thing going on, so I know she would find out. I'm positive she would be terribly disappointed in me.

    Thanks guys. We are getting closer to catching up with my fic. After that this will be more like it's own fanfic and not a rehash of a story in Mark's eyes.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Entry 18. Wild Karrde

    We did a cargo pick up on Taris today and Karrde gave us some rest and relaxation time on planet. I didn?t want to go into the city because Mara told me about the Rakghoul plague. She said if I got infected I would become a hideous cannibalistic undercity dwelling mutated human. That doesn?t sound like something I would enjoy.

    Karrde told me Mara is overstating the danger. I would be okay as long as I stayed on the upper levels...anyway, I didn?t have a choice in the matter. Chin and Aves wanted to go into the city and as the security officer it is my job to ensure they get back to the Wild Karrde in one piece.

    So I have to accompany Chin and Aves to various adult drinking establishments where Twi?lek girls twirl around a pole and offer to sit on your lap for a price. Chin must live from paycheck to paycheck because he spends so much money in those places.

    I would rather not go to the taverns because I don?t drink?not since that first time with Han and Talon. I quit for a couple of reasons. First of all, I am the person in charge of security and second, I worry about losing control. I?m big enough now to hurt a man with my bare hands?but with the Force?what would I be capable of doing? The Force is a scary thing. What if I lost my temper? I can?t risk it.

    It?s hard keeping in control all the time. Often drunken bar patrons try to pick a fight with me because of my size. I think they want to impress their girlfriends. The first fight I was in the guy threw a punch to my gut and then looked at me dumbfounded when I didn?t buckle over in pain. I knocked him out with one punch?but then I had to explain things to the authorities. I decided from now on discretion is the better part of valor. I found talking to these inebriated braggarts actually works. I tell them, ?You don?t want to fight me,? and usually they just repeat what I said and walk away. Weird.

    *clutching sides* Someone needs to be informed about the Jedi Mind Trick!

    The responsibilites of being a Force user... It would creep me out, too. And you'd have to be really drunk to try to punch a 2-meter tall, sober guy in a bar ;)

    Thanks everybody for reading. I figure Mark has not been trained so he probably doesn't know when the Force is helping him out. Anakin Skywalker, when he was a child, could pilot better than any human known on Tatooine...it was because of the Force. I am sure the same goes for Luke. So I assume Mark would be touching the Force sometimes without knowing about it.

    Thanks everybody for reading.

    Entry 19. Wild Karrde

    We?re currently between planets. These long runs can be pretty boring, but luckily Chin has a huge holo collection that he lets me watch. He has a lot of slasherholos. We?ll be watching them late at night and during the scary part he'll throw a holozine at me just to see me jump. I would smack him, but then he might not let me watch some of his more interesting holos. I cannot believe the collection of holoporn he has?and it?s of all species?not just human. I didn?t even know there was such thing as Hutt porn. I?ll probably need therapy after watching just five minutes of that holo. Chin is crazy, but he is a good friend. He?s a bit of a loner, but we have hit it off well.

    I do hang out with Mara, but when she?s on these missions she?s all work and when she isn?t working my presence just reminds her of Luke. I changed my hair and eye color, but I still have Luke?s face. I decided to grow a beard. Maybe that will help keep her mind off of her Jedi.

    The bad thing about being a smuggler is we have to run silent. No unnecessary communication?so she will probably go the entire run without hearing from him.

    ENTRY 20 . Wild Karrde

    My beard is growing out pretty well. I noticed Mara is much more comfortable around me now that I don?t remind her of Luke as much. Which is good because I like being around her.

    When she has watch on the bridge I sometimes go up to keep her company. I love hearing about her life in the Imperial Court and all the training she endured in her youth. Sometimes she tells me things that are hard to hear, but I think she needs to say them. When she tells me the bad things it?s like they have less power over her.

    Mara said some of these stories she?s told nobody else...not even Luke. I asked her why she told me. She just smiled and said, ?You?re family.? She didn?t need to say more. I feel the same way.
