"What does not kill us makes us stronger. What does kill us makes us stronger still." Friends... we gather here to mourn the passing of our beloved Anakin Solo Fans Only thread. But, like so many iconic representations in ages past -- Superman, Gandolf, Palpatine -- it has been reborn. The irony is not lost upon us, the faithful, as we believe the same will happen for Anakin Solo as well. As the NJO progresses inorexably forward it is looking more and more bleak -- we we stand fast, nurturing the last sparks of hope in the GFFA towards Anakin Solo's salvation. The original thread was started by Sith-Pirate and was aptly named For Anakin Solo fans only! (Spoilers for anyone!). But the thread's continued survival was not due merely to the Anakin Solo fans -- without continued antagonism by CeeWulf and others the thread would certainly have died long ago. It should be noted that, while opposed, debates were heated but friendly (and when CeeWulf and dp4m agreed, lo the heavens trembled). Now we come not to the beginning of the end, but the end of the beginning. Part of Anakin's journey is complete and we await the continuation. Thread Rules All opinions are welcome -- this includes those people who believe there is no chance of Anakin Solo returning in any form. However, being as this is a generally "pro-Anakin Solo return" thread, if you simply come in with "He's dead, get over it!" or "He's dead! Mwahahahahaha!" it might be considered flame-bait or trolling and you may get a warning or banning. You have been warned. If you want to say, however, "Anakin Solo will not return" and proceed to list opinions and reasons why not -- welcome aboard! Conversely -- if someone does come in and post something along the lines of one of the trolling examples above -- ignore it. Responding to it will only increase the drama and prolong it. Spoiler Rules There are spoilers allowed in this thread of all sorts. However, they should be masked with "board color" (Default == #DDDDDD) or you may get warned. I'll try and have Mods post proper "board color" for special times (e.g. Halloween, Christmas, etc.) when the background changes. Related Threads of Interest - F.A.D.A.
