    Stackpole and Allston did always write Jag well. I'm not overly adverse to the way Denning writes him, either. Denning just hasn't had that much to do with him. Allston is always going to write him better because he is basically the fighter pilot who rose from it.

    Well...I'm a bit biased, but I think Allston writes almost everyone better. Except maybe Saba. Saba is pretty much all Denning.

    Wonder if anyone else is still checking the Jag Fan Club... :-(

    They'll make their way over here slowly but surely. We've had a few new and old faces already.

    Jagged Fel is interesting, of course I avoid the Denningverse, so that doesn't factor into how I view him.

    Happy to have found the Jag Fel fan club. I definitely prefer Allston's take on Jag. And, I keep wondering at all the lost opportunities by not featuring him in more books.

    Favorite scenes, anyone? I have to say, I have a huge soft spot for the "I'm not going anywhere...because I don't want to" scene and the follow up where he sneaks around Wedge and Tycho.

    I much prefer Jag over Zekk, hopefully in SOTJ he gets to become a dad!

    Yayyy to have found this thread. I thought I was the only one with weak knees for him.

    One of my favorite scenes is from dark journey (I think?) where he was about to sneak off with Jaina. She's wearing the red dress and there's so much UST

    I'm going to have to agree with this as one of Jag's best moments. Even the battle before was captivating.

    Allston's style of writing (lots of humour and snark) does suit Jag I think.

    I love Jag Fel too! I'm so glad he finally married Jaina. They were a great couple right from the start, and all the messing around with their love lives was very very painful.

    It's not my favorite Jag scene but I do like in the Crucible. I would highlight it like I use to, but I've been away so long I have to learn how to hide spoliers!

    I think everybody is depressed that our favorite EU characters are most likely no longer canon (unless they show up in EP7 or future books). I know they are going to continue to sell the EU novels under the Legends banner, but I really doubt we will ever see more written about Jag and Jaina outside fan fiction. :(

    Yup, pretty much that. I think there's a slight, slight chance that we'll get some Legends content in some years, but not while the ST is going on.

    I think if we let Del Rey and Disney (in a positive way) know that we are interested and will buy legends stories, then there could be a chance of more stories. If that fails, I would love to know what the authors had in store for our favorite characters.

    I think another of the problems is that the author who did the most to make Jag a favorite character is sadly unable to produce more stories. :( I don't trust Denning or Golden to really get Jag, much as I would have probably enjoyed Sword of the Jedi.

    Maybe Stackpole could have carried on? He introduced Jag in the Dark Tide books as I recall.

    Or Zahn - his Chak Fel was a pretty likeable guy, for me.

    Favorite memory has to be when he met Jaina by stiffing Borsk Fey'lya.

    Stackpole and Zahn could have done it - I did like Fel a lot in Dark Tide II, but it was a very brief moment. I first really became a fan of the character in Enemy Lines, and his appearances in Allston's Legacy books were what really cemented it for me.

    I wanted more time with the Fel family, most of Jag's siblings just seemed to die like red shirts in Star Trek

    Still wish we had gotten to see Jaina and Jagged as parents.
