(sigh) Where to start, where to start? I loved the YJK series with all my heart, and though I never read the JJK series, I still loved Anakin and Tahiri. I am appalled, shocked, dumbfounded and utterly disgusted by the fact that EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THOSE CHARACTERS has been completely and utterly MESSED UP from the beginning of NJO onwards. Amazingly, I have made my peace with Chewbacca's death (sorry, Chewie fans, please forgive me), but the deaths of the Solo brothers and Mara Jade is probably something I can never get over. Nor can I get over the character mutilation of Jaina Solo. I absolutely HATE the J/J ship with an unbridled burning passion, and the recent developments in FOTJ make me want to go to the local bookshop and burn down the entire Star Wars section! I hate how the Star Wars EU, a place that I could go to when life became too tough, has become so dark and depressing. And the characters that I love have become so warped. I used to go to the EU when I felt down. Now I've got nothing. Call me crazy or obsessed if you want. I don't care anymore.
