FINALLY!! something new for me to read! the more i read the more i enjoy Leiraya! i've never heard of a pacifist correlian jedi padawan before! she makes for some very interesting reading. at first i was a little dissapointed that we didn't see much of Aiden, but now i don't mind at all. heck, i think i'm just as or more curious to read more Leiraya! her and carth will be fun pair to watch! oh, and i love the way you wrote vrook and vandar!(the underwater basket weaving line was priceless!) that was the first vandar i read that didn't sound like a YODA clone. so as usual, great job and i look forward to more!
