    I just read a bunch of the story yesterday. I'm up to Chap 9 now--only a year behind! LOL!
    But I love it. :D
    And I was glad that Inyri and Wes had a little moment there. :)

    Hey B! :)
    Yeah. This is a great fic.
    And Inyri does a great job with Mara, too! Not an easy thing to do, as most of the NJO have proven. :rolleyes:

    Well, I finished it. Finally...

    I decided to read this because Blended kept raving about it, and I had to see if it was so good. And, well, it was. Really good, I mean.

    The characterization was spot-on, and... I have to go now...

    [I'll finish this later...]

    Deception: Final Post

    ?This is going better than I expected,? Iella whispered in Wedge?s ear.

    ?I?m worried,? Wedge shook his head. ?For one, Wes Janson has been looking rather smug all day, so I know he has something planned.? Smug was an understatement. Janson had been wearing his I-know-something-you-don?t-know face since yesterday. When nothing out of the ordinary happened at the bachelor party, his fears had increased. An image of Janson and a champagne fountain flashed in his mind momentarily and he shuddered. ?Then there?s Face. I don?t have any indication he?s up to something, but he isn?t as easy to read as Wes. I wouldn?t put it past him to try to embarrass both himself and me.?

    ?He seems to be trying to impress that girl he brought,? Iella remarked. ?I don?t think he?ll be starting trouble. Now, Kell, on the other hand...?

    ?Kell and I have an agreement. He?s promised to behave himself if I put a rush order on his newest detonation toys,? Wedge shook his head. ?That was one easy bribe to make things better.?

    ?I noticed Cheriss brought a date,? Iella raised an eyebrow, inclining her head towards the guests.

    ?They?re such an odd match,? Wedge admitted. ?She?s obsessed with flying, he?s mainly interested in computers??

    ?Actually, he?s rather obsessed with smuggler lore. Stories about Han Solo, Lando Calrissian?he worked for Karrde for awhile,? Tycho put in. ?While she?s obsessed with fighter pilots, mainly you, and now Luke as she?s learned all about his exploits. Between the two of them, they have most of the heroes of the rebellion covered.?

    Wedge and Iella both looked at him strangely.

    ?What? Winter has them over to dinner once a week now that Cheriss moved into the dormitories at the academy. She thinks they need real food.?

    ?What?s wrong with the mess hall?? Wedge asked.

    Tycho leaned forward to catch Iella?s eye. ?I really hope you know how to cook. Wedge is in desperate need of a real meal.?

    ?How do you know Wedge won?t be the cook out of the two of us?? Iella asked.

    ?The word ?taun-taun? comes to mind?? Tycho said.

    ?I will never live that down, will I?? Wedge asked. He turned his attention back to the guests, hoping to find something to use to change the subject. ?What?s going on with Pash and Janine? This is the first time I've seen them together since...?

    Tycho shook his head. ?No idea, but I'm rather out of the loop. Iella??

    ?Off the record, I see them sitting here sometime next year. They've been seeing each other for a few months now. Of course, they won't be here before Hobbie, who is going to propose sometime in the next few weeks.?

    Wedge frowned. ?You know way more about my friends? lives than I do, don?t you??

    She shrugged. ?You were the one who told me to be a snoop.?

    ?We created a monster,? Tycho groaned.

    ?Just imagine the havoc she could cause if she teamed up with Wes and Face,? Wedge added.

    Iella rolled her eyes, turning back to face the guests. She frowned, ?Speaking of Wes and Face?they seem to have disappeared.?

    Wedge froze. ?They didn?t.? He scanned the room. Perhaps they were just socializing somewhere?how did they manage to sneak off? Face?s date was listening to a story Hobbie was telling. Inyri?there she was, getting a drink at the bar. Oh, this was bad. This was very bad. ?Tycho??

    He sighed, setting down his fork. ?I?m on it.? He pushed his chair away from the table and went to investigate.

    ?Maybe it?s a coincidence?? Iella said hopefully.

    ?Please let it not involve Ewoks,? Wedge muttered.

    ?If they do anything, anything, to ruin my wedding, I swear I?ll?? Iella trailed off, clenching her fists.

    ?You?ll have to wait in line,? Wedge replied. ?Remember when Gavin?s wife hit him??

    ?Hit who??

    ?Janson. He ruined her wedding and she slapped him. It was great.? Wedge grinned at the memory.

    ?I doubt you?ll think it?s funny when he does something to us.?

    ?I?m clinging to hope that Tycho can stop whatever trouble i

    Holy cow, you're alive!

    *cheers*

    And that was a wonderful conclusion to a fantastic story. Loved everything - Wes's speech & "prank," his references to Adumar and especially the time Wedge acted less mature than he did, and . . . well, the rest of it, haha. I suppose it's not too much to ask for you to write more . . .? ;)

    Great work! If there were more writers with your talent on the boards, the world would be a better place.

    Perfect conclusion, Inyri! I just knew Wes wouldn't do anything too bad...whether it be out of fear or respect, however, is another issue entirely.

    This fic is what got me interested in the boards here, Inyri. It was wonderful to learn that there were more pilot fans out there.

    Thank you, Inyri.

    OMG!!! *smacks herself on the head* How could I not have seen that you updated this?

    And I decided to post this with my sock since you're the reason the sock even exists... so without further ado....

    Tycho leaned forward to catch Iella?s eye. ?I really hope you know how to cook. Wedge is in desperate need of a real meal.?

    ?How do you know Wedge won?t be the cook out of the two of us?? Iella asked.

    ?The word ?taun-taun? comes to mind?? Tycho said.


    *snickers* Poor Wedge... he shall never ever live that down.....

    ?What?s going on with Pash and Janine? This is the first time I've seen them together since...?

    Tycho shook his head. ?No idea, but I'm rather out of the loop. Iella??

    ?Off the record, I see them sitting here sometime next year. They've been seeing each other for a few months now. Of course, they won't be here before Hobbie, who is going to propose sometime in the next few weeks.?


    Yes!!! Yes!!! Pash/Janine!!

    Wedge frowned. ?You know way more about my friends? lives than I do, don?t you??

    She shrugged. ?You were the one who told me to be a snoop.?

    ?We created a monster,? Tycho groaned.


    *snickers* Tsk tsk, Wedge should know that women are born to be snoops occasionally/quite frequently. :p

    ?Hang on, I?m almost done,? Janson held up a hand, enjoying tormenting his friend. ?What we?ve done is all of us have chipped in to get you and Iella a second set of reservations in the names of some of your friends. Said friends - meaning my and 'Ri - will check in at said suite, then, after you check in at the suite you already reserved, you?ll come find us. No one cares about interviewing the rest of us lowly pilots.? Wes? grin widened even more, ?And, in addition, we?ve booked you a honey-moon to a very, very nice resort. Of course, you?ll have to go in disguise, but after what you?ve put us through over the years, it only seems fair.?

    Ah, good boy, Wes! Good boy!! Doing something nice for once that doesn't involve ewoks...

    ?What?s the catch, Wes?? Inyri stuck him with a look.

    ?No catch. I have been the perfect gentleman throughout all of this.? He gave her a hurt look, ?How could you think I have some sort of joke planned??

    ?Because I know you, Wes.?

    ?Inyri?? Seeing her eyes harden, he sighed, ?Oh, fine. The tickets are for Mr. and Mrs. Kettch. I couldn?t resist.?


    *snickers* I should've known, Wes seems to always have to involve ewoks somehow... [face_laugh]

    *sniffs* I can't believe that it's actually finished! *sniffs again* You did an awesome job, Inyri, and I'm glad that -Trickster- managed to get me interested in this by showing me some amusing quotes and that I finally decided to come see what was going on.

    And since this wouldn't be a Targeter post without an explosion....


    BOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    :D

    Awww, come on, you didn't really think that I would post here without one last boom, did you? :p

    Okay, i'm going to shut up now, and say, it's been great reading, Inyri, and I'm sad that it's over.

    :Targeter:

    Thanks, guys. It was an adventure writing this and I learned why one does not take on writing a novel very often. :p In the end, this is nearly 300 pages in Word. Kinda scary. (Of course, that also includes missing scenes and alternate endings. Perhaps I should put the DVD version up somewhere. :p ) Anyways, it's really touching to know how much you all enjoyed this and to be constantly getting feedback from you (plus to have you still stay with me over the years).

    To be honest, I came here because of a really great J/J story by Mira, and my fics started out in that genre and just evolved over time. I do think I enjoy pilotfic the most out of all the SW genres, just because the characters are more "normal." Of course, no one is normal in SW.

    I mentioned in the viggie thread that I'm probably not going to write another long fic for awhile, but you may find vignettes from me every now and again.

    Thanks again for coming on this crazy adventure with me, and I love you all so much.
