    Gottcha. Very good reason to paint the floor green I suppose. What function did green paint on the floor serve?

    Also where Face first noticed that Lara had Coruscanti mannerisms.

    ... Actually, I think that was a different party. Wedge's 'Mutiny of Anonimity', I believe. This one was Runt's 'Raising of Morale' dance after a couple of deaths had the squad feeling pretty poopy.

    RIP Aaron Aliston, Mercy Kill was your last X Wing book, there will never be another from you now. :(

    Extremely depressing thought, that.

    I really hoped that Mercy Kill would be the resurrection and we'd get a whole new set of stories from Aaron..... I wonder if he was working on anything, his passing was so sudden :(

    At the very least, I'm sure he had ideas of where to go next.

    And only heaven knows now.....or angels, or aliens, spirits, energies.......or whatever you believe in. Very sad day for SW fans who love to read.

    I'm stunned, but I am so happy that he went out having seen Mercy Kill beloved by the X-Wing fans he loved as much as they loved him.

    Absolutely devastating :( Mercy Kill wasn't my favourite x-wing novel (always SoA) but it made me hopeful for more stories with that great cast he assembled.

    Well, very little could match SoA (though for me, sometimes Solo Command manages it, depending on my mood), but it was a worthy, funny, moving story.

    The Character he created were what made the books and there will be no more.....I'm saddened by his passing and the loss of more books. :(

    If it weren't for Aaron I would have never joined these boards. My books would still be sitting dusty on their shelves. It was the new X-wing novel that got me back into the saga again. I'm really sad to hear he has passed.

    Grabbed SoA to read on the train. Still as fun as ever but a bit bittersweet now. Weird to think back that his were some of the earliest SW books I read (after YJK and Thrawn) since I read the x-wing series out of order, starting with Iron Fist. Loved it so much I spent five years trying to get my hands on the other 8 books.

    Yub yub, Aaron Allston. I'm so sad that we'll never get another of your books.

    I got to meet Aaron Allston at a writing conference along with Mike and Tim. I learned a lot from that trio and am really sad to hear about his passing. I loved his book Betrayal and have just started the X-wing series.
