    :_| Yes I would make her shoot ESB, and if the next post doesn't happen soon I'll make her shoot RotJ too.

    OK. You did it. I am a complete board virgin here. This is my very, very, VERY first post...

    This is an excellent, thoroughly enjoyable story. I love the Myn/Lara relationship as written in "Solo Command" and your portrayal of it here is wonderful. I love the characterisation of Kolot (I can see how you won an award for it :) ) and I'm absolutely hooked to see how you're going to resolve things.

    *coughs* You *are* going to resolve things? Please?

    @ Wedgesgal: Welcome to the forums. Care to join me in forcing Derisa to post more of this magnificent story?

    @ Derisa: Before I vapourise RotJ in my attempts to get the next part I'll go through the prequels.

    Loved the story. The Rogue Squadron books kinda left the story of Myn and Lara hanging. I like how you are giving them closure.

    Eagerly awaiting the next post (that you mentioned three months ago).

    "Right. Your obvious disregard for the survival of my Star Wars DVD collection has forced me to take drastic action."

    Can't wait Derisa 8-} It's about time too, if I wasn't already crazy waiting for this post would have driven me there.

    If you need a beta I'd be happy to help out. I'm not a prfessional editor or anything but I do love reading and Star Wars. I'm also pretty familiar with the Wraiths. Sling us a PM if your interested.
    But post more first or my offer is removed[face_devil]

    Here you go, enjoy...
    and I warned you... it's *huge*

    *Derisa*

    [hr]


    "I know exactly how the Empire is going to trap you, Wedge." Even the distortion of hyper-light communications couldn't disguise Iella Wessiri's friendly derision. "You'll receive an emergency distress signal supposedly from an old Rogue, and naturally you'll come flying in to the rescue, turbolasers blazing, dismissing the need for groundwork, back-up, or actual preparation of any kind. You'll think to yourself, 'It's worked so many times before, why not this time? And that's it: they'll have you."

    Within his cockpit Wedge sighed, acknowledging the truth of her half-joking analysis. "Probably, Iella," he said, "Do you think that's what is happening now?"

    He heard the Intel officer pause before answering, no doubt to consider the situation and her impressions of the woman who had sent Wedge the cryptic tightbeam message,which Iella had helped him decifer. "Well, not that my saying otherwise would stop you, Antilles, but... no," she said at last, "I think she's genuine."

    "I trust your opinion, Iella-"

    "Not more than your own gut," she retorted, "But since they both agree in this case, I'll be very surprised if this is a trap. Corellia's antagonism to either side stands us in good stead this time, and Ms. Petothel's chosen Corellia for a reason. So... there's only one thing I can tell you, other than not to get too badly shot up."

    "What's that?" he asked. Another pause and this time Wedge felt an odd, weightless sensation as he waited for her reply. Was that hope? Anticipation? He'd put those feelings for Iella aside a year ago, when her husband had returned from the dead, only to be revealed as a sleeper agent who ended up actually dying at her hands. She'd thrown herself into her work after that, dealing with her demons in her own way. He'd set aside his powerful feelings for her until they both had the time to recover, and heal from their own losses and disappointments...

    "How about who you five are going to be while you're on the old homeworld?" Wedge's reverie was interrupted and the possibilities he had entertained vanished as she began to relay details from General Cracken as to their contacts and cover IDs, should they need them. She broke the connection briskly, leaving Wedge shaking his head at his own earlier romantic musings. No, she'd healed, and she'd moved on. Perhaps he even reminded her too much of those very tragic times. He didn't have time to dwell on might-have-beens, anyway: he had a job to do.

    Back to being the very picture of an efficient commander with cold-space lubricant in his veins instead of blood, he briefed his team. Minutes later they were free of the streaming light of hyperspace and slipping into a standard approach to the planet of his birth. From here, Corellia was a golden sphere hanging in space, an immense jewel on the diadem of some ancient goddess. Her sister worlds of Talus and Trallus, Drall and Selonia spangled the huge orbital plane around Centerpoint Station, complementary jewels to the central setting. They were small in the vast distances of space, but lovely in their remote light.

    "Remember, Rogues," Wedge stated over the squad channel when they'd aligned with Coronet City's approach vector, "We're here as a merc quad to escort Dur Khaima Outbound freight, so, I hesitate to ask this, but fly sloppier than usual."

    "Roger that, Lead," Wes Janson replied, unable to resist the opening, "Flying casual."

    "Can the chatter, Three," Wedge barked, before continuing with the in-flight briefing, "Our cover ship is scheduled to depart in thirty-six hours. That's a narrow window to do what we came here to do, but we'll deal with that at the time, if necessary."

    "So we detonate those bridges when we come to them?" Hobbie asked in a wry tone.

    There came a sound of a shared chuckle over the comms and then the team swung their loosened formation of ships down into Corellia's gravi

    Great post!

    so... life has taken its toll, I found a job, lost a job, had some investigative surgery, got myself a man, and found another job, not at all in that order. I have the hand written draft of the next post, and will set to putting it on pooter in the very near future, and eventually will finish this f-ing story, and the others I had started ages back and never finished: but I know what happens and all I have to do is write the bastards.

    fanficfan... you are willing to beta, hm? alrighty: PM me with your email addie, please please, and I will send you the draft of the next posts, plus the outline for the last chapters. :)

    Have a good weekend all: I work straight through till Tuesday: may have something ready for then.

    :)
