    I really liked this and I'm glad I continued reading past the first chapter ;)
    It has always been Mara for me.
    I'll never understand how Barbara Hambly could ever come up with a character like Callista.

    Thank you :)

    I went of to the FF.n so I could read this one -- WOW -- you blew me away with this one. The twists and turns were great and the emotions --- so nice and then the wrap up at the end with the kids all grown up -- nice touch.

    Thanks Gemma for reading. This is one of my favorite stories for some reason. It is too bad about the truncation, but I am glad I had it on FFN.

    Hi: @};-
    Here's my overall point-by-point review: ;)

    Chapters 1-3

    Loved how Ben and Darik clicked right off.

    Callista was/is a piece of total work. :rolleyes:

    Mara was right and insightful in her analysis of Callista's narcissistic personality. :p

    I squeed when Darik told Luke that Mara told Darik she loved 'his' Daddy. Yes!!!!! ;)

    ~~~!

    chapter 4-5

    Love Mara's pragmatic suggestion and the 'love confessions.' [face_laugh]

    I believe Luke was always a bit more in love with Mara than he might have realized back then, but now he's in a position to realize it and compare Mara with Callista. Night and day. :p

    ~~~~!

    I had an absolute :eek: moment at Ben's disclosures. Lands, that just about bites the big one doesn't it?
    :rolleyes:

    So sad that Ben felt unloved; definitely seems like Callista was way more into the computer fixer-upper than anyone else.

    Superb talk with the two of them together. =D= Their reactions - terrifically handled. LOL Darik knew all along huh? ;)

    ~~~~~!

    Final Chapters :)

    Hee! Han was a trip as usual, and Leia's reaction(s) totally expected and understandable.

    The L/M was just scrumptious, natch. [face_dancing]

    Luke was so enthusiastic, but who blames him?

    Chapter 7 had such yummy H/L teasing and mush. :D And Ben's friends made me laugh -- I love seeing him and Darik as part of such a warm, fun family.

    =D=

    [:D] !!!

    Thanks Nyota's Heart. I can't remember what inspired this story, but I know I was in a bitter mood when I wrote the first chapter. lol! I am glad you like it. I liked having Ben and Darik together as brothers. I also liked that Ben found a way to excel despite not being a Force User. I know I was a little harsh with Callista, but I never liked Callista. I don't think that is a secret. I really hope we see Mara in EP7 or the Rebel's TV series so I can say, "MARA IS CANON AND THE BODYSNATCHER ISN'T!"

    Thanks for reading and I appreciate the review!
