Too long; didn't read.
Actually, that sounds precisely like Star Wars.
Playing Jedi Outcast and reading the Wook retcon made re-reading this a little more palatable!
One mere sentence cannot accurately describe the glory of our lord, the great and gelatinous Waru, creator of all.
How does one unread a book?
Start at the last page, finish at the first, then take it back to the shop?
A crazy Palpatine-wannabe tries to feed the Solo kids to a giant sparkly gold booger from another dimension, puts Jaina off nail polish for life.
"For the Celestials so loved the Galaxy, that they gave their only begotten blob, that whosovever believeth in it should not persish, unless it is dinnertime."
Man, the Umgullian blobs have really grown since JAT.
On one hand, poor writing, cliched kidnapping, and zombie Luke and Han, but on the other, we get both Waru and color-crawlers, so call it a wash.
If The Crystal Star is what happens when a Trekkie writes a SW book, what'll happen when someone associated with Star Trek directs a SW movie??
My entry: TCS is the quirky third cousin of the EU: you don't particularly want to be caught associating with it but, every once in a while, it's fun to appreciate its... unique qualities.
Given that it is JJ? Lens Flare. From Lightsabers.
Yeah, lens flare jokes stopped being funny about 3 hours after the announcement.
Thank you for that.
Honestly, some people should be bonked on the head for abusing easy jokes.
You know what's a better Photoshop effect? Plastic wrap. But, that's beside the point.
I wonder if The Crystal Star would be a good book to read to cure insomnia...
TCS is many things. Boring is not one of those things.
Good to know.
Go tell the Duros thread that. I'll wait
@CooperTFN on them.
The Lit thread is blessed with the single greatest solution to all of Star Wars' continuity problems, from the messed up Clone Wars timeline to Episode VII's potential reboot, in the form of his Almighty Blobiness, the Great and Terrible Waru, while some other stuff happens with centaurs, I think?
Han looks weirded out in that cover. Must have read the book.
The best Star Wars novel ever to feature Luke Skywalker confronting an extragalactic orange blob that sometimes eats people's souls or something.
What if they're Duros?
Bah! Now I feel ninja'd.
Todd's got a pretty clear lead in this one, but I'm gonna go ahead and let it finish out today before starting the next round. Will a dark horse emerge??
