    I saw TTT today! It rocked! Much darker than FotR, but also a tad more humor as well. *shrugs* I guess the dark has to be really dark for the light to be really good.

    Throwing out a story idea that can be the new discussion topic...

    This is actually a really old plot bunny/half-started story that I wrote that is evolving slowly. It used to be part of an ill-planned set of trilogies were formed before I ever read about Mara Jade. Since I became literally one of the biggest Mara fans there ever were, I hauled out the old story and boiled it down from two trilogies into a single duology.

    The first story is called The Song of Eternity. It's a rather long story divided into long sections telling the story of an OC character from Earth. To make a long story short, this character becomes Luke Skywalker's first apprentice after Return of the Jedi. A little after she reaches Knighthood, she marries Luke. The third part of the story is sort of an AU version of The Last Command. This girl befriends Mara.

    In the last part of the story, the girl dies, completing her destiny. She leaves two daughters behind with Luke. Mara grieves in her own way, blasting off into the unknown in her horrible grief, not know that the youngest little Skywalker girl has fallen asleep aboard the Jade's Fire.

    That's how the story ends. In the next one, Eternity's Storm, Luke and Mara are supposed to become friends, then much later, married. It spans about six years.

    I haven't been working much on this, so I'm open to suggestions. Anybody have ideas?

    I love Mara Jade too, she's my second favorite (my icon will tell you who's my no. 1 favorite). I think she's totally awesome, smart, funny, and a bit mysterious too.

    We Jade fans have a crisis! The Mara Haters Club has gotten 1000 posts!! I don't know how that could happen. I cannot conceive the idea of hating Mara Jade. C'mon guys, we can't let them catch up to us! We need more posts!

    Hey guys, I hope you all had a blessed and merry Christmas! I know I did!

    Since our dear club will be locked soon I suggest that we use the few posts we have left to reminence over events that have happened to our club.

    I found the very very first post I ever made in this club! Here it is!

    Ahhh, those were the days... ;)


    How's this for a title for the new thread? -

    Fellowship of the Tang - The Mara Jade Skywalker Fan Club


    Hello everyone! :)


    EDIT/addition: If you like to, read a post of mine on the Mara thread on the SWChicks ezboard. (My screen name there is DeviCrystalseeker, and the post I'm referring to is the one with the two nice Mara pics on the bottom of the page.)

    While we're at doing the nostalgia thing :D , here is my very first post at the MJFC (which was my second ever post at on the JC):

    *Devi waves "hi!"*

    Greetings, exalted ones!!

    Finally decided to come out of lurking. Mara-fan solidarity is a good thing, so I thought I should step up and say that I *join your ranks* in the fan club :)

    I'm Devi, enthusiastic reader & writer of L/M fanfic, and fascinated with Mara since HTTE.

    Reg. recent discussions:

    Elori, your probably right with saying that it's best to leave the Hater's Club thread alone; even though I myself have posted there (in a rather polite manner, though, or so I think) today (*before* I read your post) *blushes*

    Though I'm not in favor of Mara-bashing (goes without saying, huh?), I also think that we should respect the MJHC thread as the hater's haven, just as we would wish them to respect our thread.

    I actually had an idea in this regard: Maybe I should open a thread specifically for controversial discussion about MJ, so that all disagreements about our favorite character can be taken out there and no one has to "invade" the opposite party's thread anymore. What to you all think of that idea?


    (Well, a version of "that idea" was started (though not by me) later on in the form of the now-defunct MJCC, but unfortunately, it turned into a failed experiment, as we all know. :( )

    Reg. Mara's parentage/background: Her parents being Corellian Jedi always seemed plausible to me, because we know that it was very common for Corellian Jedi to marry and have children, and because Mara has personality traits in common with Mirax and Han, and in some ways also with Corran, so it would just "fit" if she was Corellian.

    That she has no memory of her parents doesn't necessarily say anything about how early she was taken - Palpatine could have used his Sith powers to "wipe" her memory.

    That's it for my first post here :)

    Hope we'll have a good time together!

    Devi



    And while I was digging that one up, I found the following gem by DeJade_Vu:


    Here's a good Mara quote (again from VotF.):

    "Mara had already considered every possibility, and there simply wasn't any way Luke could hold off four blasters by himself when the two of them were firing at his back this way. But if she could just live long enough to carry this through, using her body to shield him until the sentinel facing her could be eliminated...
    "'While I still have the strength', she reminded herself. And the time was now. She took a deep breath--
    "'NO!' the emotion broke through her black determination. 'Wait. Look.'"

    The "no" came from Luke of course.

    Wow. Think of that; Mara was just about to give up her life for Luke.

    A lot of people complain that Mara was a very selfish person. And at first she was, in certain ways (such as the "you destroyed my life" rant). But you notice that underneath this "selfish" exterior there is a great deal of loyalty--loyalty to the Empire, then to Karrde, then to Luke and the Rebellion. In this quote especially you can see how unselfish she really was.


    And here's J_K_DART's reply to that post:

    I agree, I love that quote too! (See, I do still exist even if I don't bob by often and even if my cat is pestering me at the mo LOL! [face_sily] )

    For me, it brought Mara's characterisaton to completion, and showed Zahn's willingness to develop the character in a meaningful way! She started out introverted, bitter and selfish - and finally became selfless!


    :) !! Now I feel like putting something like a "the best posts from the MJFC" anthology together. Not in the thread, otherwise we'll need another new thread (after the upcoming one) soon :D ;) , but maybe on a website? (I hope that my never-used Tripod account hasn't been deleted yet - and that I can still remember my password... *hehe*) Don't expect me to do it today or tomorrow, though - a project like that will take some time.

    In the nostalgia vein, I've also changed my icon to the first JC icon I ever

    ::sniffle:: Ah, memories..........wow.............and I've always liked that quote from VOTF. It showed Mara as unselfish. :D


    Anyway......we won't need a new thread for at least 3 days.....try not to have to start it until Sunday. ;)

    I got the AOTC DVD, driver's training lessons thingies, a 64MB memory card for my digital camera ( :cool: ) SW poster, SW Life, and gift certificates! (other stuff too, but this is stuff I'll write here! :D )

    My first post in the MJFC was a question about Mara...I think which book they got married in. No one answered me! :(

    I don't think I joined then though...

    *sigh*

    I guess it's time for me to "change my sock(s)" :p

    My first post here as well as my first post in EUC:

    Hello!
    Ok, don't everyone kill me at once, but...
    What book did Luke and Mara get married?
    I am a new Mara fan and want to read books with her in them and that's one of them
    God bless!

    No particular suggestions in mind, I just really need anything that pops into your mind about the second story.


    Thanks, Malz!

    Maybe, after he starts the academy they start to fall in love. Then right before they marry the GFFA is invaded by the Yuuzhan Vong. There love is put to the test in war and they have to deside to stay seperated, but help the war effort or marry and might help the Yuuzhan Vong win. You like?

    I'm always open to suggestions, but I'm afraid I currently don't know enough about the Vong to write them well. I don't think I would *ever* feel comfortable writing Vong.

    I'll take some of that into consideration, though. Thank you.
