    Excellent update! Awesome! Good to see you back! I like Luke suggesting Mara kill that dude with a lightsaber. If Luke ever put a leash on Mara it is because they are into some kinky bedroom games. Lol!

    Fantastic update and glad things are on a beginning path of what's best for most :p [face_thinking]

    Adore Mara's snark with Bedine and the L/M tone with each other. :)

    Yay!!! New Symbols chapter!!!

    I agree with Luke - Mara would make a great Empress! And Luke would make a great Emperor. The hottest leadership couple ever! :)

    You do really well with writing politics!

    aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa runs around squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeing. My ginchy heart is LOVING all these awesome L/M updates this week!!!!!!!!!!!

    I love how reticent Mara is to taking power. She is not her grandfather. And I love that she and Luke will balance the equation.

    Nanci's right--they are the hottest leadership couple ever!! [face_love]

    Cannot wait for the ending!!! That might be my cue... [face_devil]

    Oh, and PS everyone--her Rogue/Gambit fic is great!!! Check it out!

    Wow.... Interesting politics going on here. I would imagine that running an entire galaxy by pure democracy would be quite unwieldy, which was why nothing much got done in the end. Yet, freedom is needed, so a pure Empire would not be good either. Combine representation with someone to make the really big decisions that no one could agree on seems like a good compromise, as long as the people in charge don't let the power go to their heads.

    Fascinating comment about the Corellian financial crisis and unions causing the problem by demanding ever higher and more unsustainable wages and benefits. Very timely indeed.

    Love it!:D

    Favorite moment: "Saviors are only demons cast in the light of too many torches trying to find their way."

    Dang, girl! That's golden!

    Bravo! =D=

    Excellent update! Mara, according to Aristotle, would make the perfect leader because she has no desire to rule. Plus she would make the galaxy's currency look hot!

    It'll definitely be interesting to see the two systems under the leadership of Mara and Luke. I wonder what changes they will bring - hopefully we'll get to see that in the final chapter! :)

    Thank you for sharing this entertaining story with us! [:D]

    Mara (and Luke) at the helm of this new government? Oh my. Do the people who want it know what they're in for?

    Wooo Hoooo!!! Its soooo good! I don't want it to end, but you're wrapping it up so nicely, I can't help but be happy! I guess that means I'll just go read it through again!

    Huggles!

    I'm with Bri, that would be the best currency ever! Mara could be on 100 credits banknote and Luke on the 50... :D

    The problem is - when they finally grow old and die, who will get the job? Their kids? Or it will be a new leader picked by both sides? Because I can't imagine the New Republic and the Empire merging within one generation's lifespan.


    I'm waiting impatiently for the next update!

    Okay, so, yeah, I love you all, you guys are awesome, I really couldn't do this without you. Give yourself some chocolate, I mean that. :)

    As for the final chapter of Symbols, it sits mostly finished on my harddrive... but as I look at the sad nature of the truncated and deformated nature of this story on here due to the move... I have decided to edit and repost Symbols on FF.net.

    I will be posting a new chapter every couple of days or so and it will include the final chapter.
