    From the pages of Dark Horse comics:



    "More than a hundred years have passed since the events in Return of the Jedi and the days of the New Jedi Order.


    There is a new evil gripping the galaxy,

    [image=http://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c228/jadedskies/Legacy%20pics/button5b.jpg]


    shattering a resurgent Empire

    [image=http://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c228/jadedskies/Legacy%20pics/button2.jpg]


    and seeking to destroy the last of the Jedi.

    [image=http://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c228/jadedskies/Legacy%20pics/button4.jpg]


    Even as their power is failing, the Jedi hold to one final hope:

    [image=http://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c228/jadedskies/Legacy%20pics/button3.jpg]


    the last remaining heir to the Skywalker legacy.

    This is the future of Star Wars..."

    Notes: Forgive me if this doesn't quite fit cannon. Whatever I know about the Legacy comics is what I read in Wookiepedia, and even though there is a lot of detail on some things, other things aren't precisely clear. As it says in the subject line, this is a fic-gift for Jedi Trace.

    Aaaaaand we're up & running!

    :D *throws confetti* :D



    I took the liberty of adding the fics I could find with a quick search, but I'm sure I missed some. If you have a story to include, please PM it to the sock and I'll get it added. Or, if you'd like to have your fic removed from the Index, just drop me a PM and I'll be happy to take care of that for you. [face_peace]

    ~Jedi Trace



    To get us started with some discussion, who is your favorite character in the Legacy series and why?

    Cade is my favorite by far - so torn, so broken. He has power and refuses to use it at first, instead driving his good heart into darkness just to get away from the horrors of his past life. Great character and lots of angst/action in his story.

    Woooh!!! More Legacy discussion. *picks up some of that confetti and tosses it around*

    Favorite character... um, I'm reluctant to say Cade just because everyone says Cade. I like the crew of the Mynock as a whole. I gotta say I like Jariah a lot. He tries so very hard to pretend like he doesn't care about anyone, but you can just tell he'd do anything for Deliah and despite what he says about hating Jedi, he's established that he prefers them to Sith, and that, at the very least, he cares about Cade. I guess he's a lot like Han Solo in a way... but it's even less obvious than that. There's no "I love you" "I know" for him, It's just little images that stick with you. Stepping in front of an interrogation droid to protect Deliah, for example. And I loved him in the bar in #16.

    So there's my 2 cents *scurries off to read Legacy fics that I somehow missed*

    I know the answer to that... Cade Skywalker!! He's powerful, stubborn, and hot. I kinda feel bad for him too, because of all he's been through. I also like Darth Talon! She's the most cold-hearted person I've ever seen. She's always willing to do anything for Krayt too. And speaking of Krayt... old but awesome!

    I'm trying to think of doing a Horn descendant fan fic for Legacy... but something tells me I shouldn't. But I really want to share it with everyone! [face_worried]

    My favourite character on their own is Morrigan Corde because she is cool and funny and deadly. I also like the crew of the mynock as a whole because their dynamic is really strong

    My vote would be for Jeriah Syn, because of the conflict between his personal loyalty to friends and his hatred of Jedi - or perhaps Force users - in general. Given his fear of Jedi mind control, his protective attitude towards Deliah Blue is peculiar, since she could do the same to him via her Zeltron pheromones. Unrequited secret love, maybe? Just look at the lousy way she treats him, and yet he still sticks up for her.

    Also Astraal Vao, Konrad Rus and Gunn Yage. Astraal Vao seems to be an atypical Twi?lek in that she isn?t a hot-bod warrior or slave girl type. Konrad Rus I?m waiting on to see if his motives match his grandfatherly appearance or if he?s another Palpatine. Gunn Yage I like for her tough attitude and boyish ? not the more commonplace Star Wars gorgeous feminine ? looks.

    You know, I completely forgot about Yage! She is pretty awesome. The family dinner scene continues to crack me up every time I read it.

    Great to see this gem here!

    I definately gotta' go with Roan Fel as my favorite. He's everything Vader had the chance to be if it hadn't been for his selfishness!

    I loved the family dinner scene. How those two parents ever had time to make Yage is beyond me. I would have figured they'd kill each other off before she was ever born.

    I agree on that, dianethk! That dinner scene was pretty hilarious.[face_laugh]

    *raises a toast to fellow Legacy fans*

    :D [face_peace] =D=


    To answer the question:

    I really can't think of anyone I don't like in the Legacy cast. Even the bad guys are so bad, they're good. :cool:


    Based on his initial introduction, I expected to dislike Cade (what a self-centered loser, right?) but as his story unfolded, he quickly evolved into my favorite character. [face_love]


    I?m also a Deliah fan. Gotta love a girl who can flirt, fly, handle a blaster & a hydrospanner, talk smack to wookies & Sith, pout, and pull off such hoochie clothes all at the same time. [face_batting]


    I?m with you, diane. All that potential wrapped up in such a conflicted, grouchy mess. [face_cowboy]


    Karebear & Musing: Jariah?s great and he has the best one-liners! I wonder if we?ll get to find out why he hates Jedi so much? [face_thinking] (And if he'll get over it for his BFF.)

    Stepping in front of an interrogation droid to protect Deliah, for example.

    LOVED that scene!


    Given his fear of Jedi mind control, his protective attitude towards Deliah Blue is peculiar, since she could do the same to him via her Zeltron pheromones. Unrequited secret love, maybe?

    As you know ;), I?m a big ol? Cadeliah shipper, but I could totally see Syn and Blue hooking up. They have that whole bickering, bantering thing going on?reminiscent of H/L or L/M, lol.


    SkywalkerShine: I was skeptical about Talon at first, but how do you not respect a woman who can kick arse while wearing a tube top? LOL!

    I'm trying to think of doing a Horn descendant fan fic for Legacy... but something tells me I shouldn't.

    Go for it! Nothing at all wrong with AU or speculative fan fics. [face_peace]


    Hananiah: Morrigan rocks!! I cannot wait to see her in action again. [face_mischief]


    Ale: Roan Fel defines badassery, does he not? ;)

    Mr. Sith Assassin guy: ?I am prepared to die.?

    Fel: ?Good. I?m prepared to kill you.?

    [face_beatup]

    :cool:


    diane: I loved the family dinner scene. How those two parents ever had time to make Yage is beyond me. I would have figured they'd kill each other off before she was ever born.

    So true! [face_laugh]



    [edit] Oops! Forgot to mention that I added four fics by whiskers to the Index. [face_peace]

    Hey Trace I was just re-reading the thread and noticed your request for a co-host. I wouldn't mind being your sidekick. Lemme know if you still need the help.

    Thanks, Jedi Trace! But I was thinking... if I make a fan fic out of the twin descendants of Corran, they probably won't show in the Legacy comics. I do want to make a fan fic of them... but I really want to see them in the comic book... :)

    To be honest, they probably won't show in the Legacy comics anyway. Dark Horse has it's own characters that usually remain rather seperate from those in the novels, and while they do sometimes overlap, it's usually in a more "cameo" style. So write your fic, we're looking forward to seeing it... and if a Corran descendant does make an appearance in color-and-ink, you can totally yell "I called that!" to wild applause.

    YaY for new fics! (I gotta catch up. [face_blush])

    Okay, so, I re-read # 12 last night while working on Drabbles and now I have a mutant Nei Rin/Kol plot bunny batting its eyes at me. I can't decide if that would be 'EW!' or 'Hmm, maybe.'

    :oops:
