    You weren't there, man--you can't really understand it if you didn't experience it for yourself. :p

    I wasn't there either, but I did go back to the threads made around the time SBS came out and afterward. Suffice to say it was really interesting to read the reactions back then.

    I myself read some of the early reactions to TUF. It was actually really fun, watching the melodramatic people talking about how Star Wars was forever dead for them... then TUF hit, and the good cheer was so infectious I could practically feel it years later.

    Until they started making the post-NJO novels, anyway.

    The funny thing is, I do remember a lot of people liking TUF so much that there was an undercurrent of "stop here!!"

    From what I read, there were definitely people who wanted TUF to be the "ending", but there were also lots of people who were really excited at the possibilities the book opened up, and actually thought that the status quo it set up would be built upon.

    Jokes on them.

    I might as well have experienced the NJO as it happened, even though I only read it years after it came out, because I wasn't spoiled on anything from it. I got an ominous "stop here" feeling after I finished TUF and had only saw the name of DNT.

    In many ways Legacy comics would be even more entertaining if none of the post-NJO books existed.

    Alright, it's time for our next interview subject, @GrandAdmiralJello! (And if he or one of the other lit mods could change the thread title, that'd be much appreciated ;) )

    1. Tell us about your username, why you chose it, what it means, etc. And what is the best way to address you?

    2. Where are you originally from? Are you currently living there, or did you move elsewhere?

    If I know Jay, he has been waiting and preparing for this day. Suffice to say, I expect an entertaining interview, to say the least. :p

    It's the Roman way to advance and conquer right when your enemy's power is fading. [face_devil]

    Plus, I'm fairly certain that Trip is nocturnal. Or something more mundane like she works during the day.

    I, for one, expect punctuality from our undisputed overlord.

    @Ordo Skirata nope!


    Man this is really tough because this is one of those things where I love pretty much everyone in different ways (except for Dany who is basically the worst). If I had to pick my absolute favorites though, I'd say (in no particular order) Arya, Jon, Jaime, Ned and Catelyn. Especially Catelyn, since the first four are typical fan-favorites but Cat doesn't get any love even though she is imo one of the best female characters like ever. I just love her to bits.

    Close second-tier favorites are Tyrion, Brienne, Sansa, and Davos; Tywin I also find fascinating (and I'd give anything for a prequel series with him as a major POV character) and Cersei I have a soft spot for even though she's kind of a doofus, bless her soul. Some minor/very minor characters I appreciate a lot are Renly, Fat Walda, Dacey Mormont (:( @};-), Dolorous Edd, Satin, and Kevan, Genna, and Daven Lannister. (hm I guess I like Lannisters!) And then of course I am fascinated with Rhaegar, Lyanna, Elia Martell, and Ashara and Arthur Dayne, even though we never meet any of them and they are all (supposedly) long dead.



    (workin on the second one which is gonna get a super long answer... :D )

    Actually I'll answer this one first because I'll be working on #25 for awhile probably...

    Han is a battered leather La-Z-Boy recliner, kinda scuffed up and with maybe a few minor tears revealing bits of the stuffing within; it wheezes a bit and emits a puff of dust when you sit on it but it's comfy all the same. Leia is a high-end rolling executive office chair, all ergonomic and comfortable with a smart-looking modern design but it maybe doesn't roll so well on carpeting and is a bit creaky and tends to hang up every so often when spinning around. Lando is a velour-upholstered zebra-print swayback lounge chair; Chebacca's a retro seventies shag chair; Artoo is one of those rocking video game chairs that has like built in speakers and a massager and a drink cooler and usb chargers and a universal remote. And finally Threepio is the ornate secondhand coffee table that's still impressive looking but has obviously seen better days, and although it's supposed to be used for like drinks and coffee table books and stuff mostly everyone just puts their feet on it. Usually without removing their boots.
