    Yes, but was "The Final Prophecy" the planned resolution to Anakin's story, or was it skewed in order to allow an ending to Anakin's story?

    Considering, as I understand it, Ben Skywalker was an individual author's conception and not planned as part of the arc to being with...

    ... this would hardly be the worst they've had to skew. ;)

    Anakin gave his life in defense of the Jedi scattered throughout the galaxy. But his destiny was incomplete. The prophesy of Master Ikrit has gone by the way side and there has been no attempt to give readers closure on the subject.

    Yeah... what he said 8-}

    *shudders at the thought of Tahiri/Ben*
    eeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! What kind of sicko came up with that theory?!

    I agree that there will be some closure on the situation sometime before the end of the series. The fact that none of the issues involving Anakin has yet to be concluded leads me to believe that is true.

    On the off note -- wow, I haven't been on the Lit. boards in a long time. And congrats to dp4m! Party in the Lounge ;)

    Del Rey has to publish something on the topic, or they are even worse story tellers than I give them credit for...

    Wow, I couldn't even get here in time for page one :(

    This thread title is way too long. But on the other radank, why should it have to be short?

    I know I asked this before, but what has DR and LFL commented regarding this Anakin business? Did they not make a statement(s) after Chewie?

    You know Anakin's lightsaber is still in Vong hands. Stover makes mention in his A&A thread being told Jacen couldn't bring it back with him. Whatever happens with Anakin, his saber alone will be iconised . . . perhaps by the Shamed Ones, seeking redemption by a fallen hero's blade?

    They made a statement about Chewie because he was a character from the film. What purpose would it serve to issue a statement about Anakin Solo? A character only people who read the books would know.

    Besides, do they need to issue a statement everytime a charater is killed off?

    SW has a massive fan based, in case you haven't noticed. Demising a character from the Skywalkser/Solo household will attract a great deal of attention.

    If official statements haven't been made, then they're playing this coy and close to the fur. We'll just have to wait another half year and see what happens.

    I have noticed, however, statements are made for the press and the general public, they are not issued necessarily for the benefit of fans. At least, not in this situation.

    If official statements haven't been made, then they're playing this coy and close to the fur. We'll just have to wait another half year and see what happens.

    Or, maybe they didn't see a reason to. I don't.

    Anyways go to the force heretic sticky page at the top and read on page six toward the bottom, MasterSkywalker I think.

    Hey since we don't have much to discuss until Remnant, how about we write our own versions of ressurection? Here's mine:

    *poof!* Anakin appears during the Solo family's dinner.

    Anakin: IIIII'mmmmmmmmmm baaaaaaaaaaaaack!!! So how's it going?

    Everybody: [face_shocked]

    A: What's up? Havn't you seen a person coming back from the dead before? Palps did it.

    *Tahiri runs up to hug him*
    T: Oh! Anakin.

    *Anakin's grabbing her but*
    A:liked that, didn't ya?

    *A/T make out in front of everybody. They realise what there are doing and stop*

    A: Hey! I have a funny story about a time Yoda was all drunk and he fell down the stairs and that's why walked with a cane. *he laughs histerically but stops after noticing people still staring shocked. He looks to Tahiri*

    A: I'll see you after dinner! ;) Maybe we can have some, dessert at your place? ;)

    T: Actually, we can some dessert right here. If ya know what I mean. ;)

    *Anakin throws Tahiri on table and they start taking clothes off. They're soon making sweet love. *

    Jacen: I think I'm gonna throw up!

    Jaina: Yeah! Go!go!GO!GO!GO!GO! *chants more*

    Han: That's my boy!

    Leia: HAN! You better have given him the... talk. You did give him the talk, didn't you?

    Han: If by talk you mean taking him to a strip club and telling how to get a lap dance, then you betchya!

    *Leia frowns*

    *Jacen goes to a refresher and throws up.*


    [face_laugh]

    Edit: Please don't warn me! There has been far worse posted on these boards.

    Well, that's interesting. I'll say my interest is piqued. That is the only spoiler I'm going to allow myself. It doesn't give a whole lot away but it makes you go 'hmmmmm' :)

    -of course I refer to Baggins post, not Whitey's.


    -Interesting Whitey. Might even get you a warning. :p

    I just I read the Remnant spoiler and I'll I got to say is HHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!! Take that you rationalists! 8-} I knew he would come back, I knew It! But poor Tahiri, she thinks Anakin wants her dead. :(

    *hopes no one made it up.*

    Me? a warning? I've seen things posted far worse than that. Hopefully the 8-} meant you were joking. You were joking, weren't you?

    Whitey, I would suggest editing your previous post before you get nailed for spoilers.

    And I wasn't joking. That was more of a sucker :p

    I don't want to say anything that will get me into trouble, so all I'll say is for those of you who are fans of Anakin, go check out the official Remnant Spoilers thread.

    There is hope, dear friends. :)

    All -- I cannot edit posts from home tonight (newbie Mod tech issues :() so a warning:

    The proper way of posting a spoiler is as follows (there will not be a spoiler):

    Force Heretic: Remnant Spoiler (highlight to read)

    This is how spoilers should be masked in this thread.

    The text-color to use is #DDDDDD to make it blanked out, requiring highlights.

    It's not a spoiler, D. Whitey's counting his eggs before they hatch.

    Whitey Please do not gloat. I will not, and many others will not.

    Yeah, he is, but it takes so little for one's assumption to become fact on these boards, doesn't it?

    Sorry. No more gloating. Promise! I got carried away.

    So that means I don't have to edit it?

    No, I don't think that you should. It's just a n00b mistake.

    EDIT: I was replying to Whitey's last post. 8-}
