    Hmm. I read all of the NJO. Maybe it's time to again.

    You don't remember Enemy Lines duo? Rebel Dream, Rebel Stand? Set on Borleias. Introduces Twin Suns (as far as I remember).

    I have all of the NJO. It took me FOREVER to collect them all. And when I started, I was restricted to the high school library and the town library. Vector Prime, Balance Point, Edge of Victory and Enemy Lines was it.

    I'm still working on getting all the NJO books, and all the X-Wing books. I only have 1 X-Wing book and less then half of the NJO. I was finally able to get the two short e-books of the NJO shortly after I received my Kindle.

    My local library has maybe 2 of the NJO books and a few of the X-Wing books. I can tell I'm one of the few who read them, every time I go to the library I have to fix the order they are in on the shelf because it's not right.

    Question: I just bought Mercy Kill, should I finish reading the FotJ series before I start MK or not?

    If you are close to finishing FOTJ I say finish. If you have more than 3 books to go enjoy Mercy Kill.

    Huh. I don't remember this. Going to go look now; need to experience such awesomeness.

    *Reads, remembers*

    Bah-hah! That part was great! Who knew, huh? He either got the biggest chewing-out of his life when they landed or he got a commendation for guts. Or both.

    Yeah. The last time I read that book (and the time before that), I hadn't read the X-Wing series yet so I didn't truly appreciate Wedge, Tycho, or Gavin, let alone Wes (except for Wes flirting with Jaina; that was classic). Now, though, just looking at that one part, I need to reread those books (the whole Vong series really) so I can get to appreciate their connectivity.

    I can see Wedge trolling Gavin so hard for that... and then praising him.

    EDIT: Actually, I read a fic once about just that... Now if I could only remember what the title was, and where I found it...

    It was a lot of fun. Seems like those were the books in that series where the tide was staring to turn. The whole thing was just so dark until that point.

    It really was. I very nearly refused to pick up another NJO after Vector Prime... it was just so painful to me. I did eventually. Edge of Victory was an easier read, I did enjoy it. But yeah, Enemy Lines - even though it's set straight after a HUGE catastrophe - really does have a lot of lighter moments.

    I read a really dark fic where the premise was that they didn't. I'm not sure where to find it now though.

    Oooh.

    I had the idea of maybe just one of the girls (Syal) not making it off planet and having to survive the underground (basically). And when Luke, Mara and the Wraiths hit up Coruscant, they find her and bring her back to Borleias.
    And then my bf played Last of Us, and I had this mental image of Wedge and Syal, stuck on Coruscant together. (Then I had to adjust it to Iella. So Myri would have had to get herself off planet.)

    I think I found it. Downtime site, called Final Choice, and oh god, I'm crying. And my bf is very worried about me. Gah. Right in the feels.

    Oh, I'm glad I read it. Just... you know... =((

    Trying to find the 'Gavin finds out who Blackmoon Eleven was' fic... so hard to do!

    EDIT: I found it! On Downtime (I thought that was where I saw it).

    A Standing Ending by Astronut (And that's who I thought wrote it! Haha, my memory ain't so bad after all!)
