Re: Ben/Jysella I came to love the idea of them way back when the Ben Skywalker Discussion thread was really active and we were doing monthly challenges. One of the challenges was to do a romantic pairing with Ben (at any age) and a canon character. This spawned a huge discussion about who would be closest to his age and at the time we had no idea how old Jysella was, we knew she was older but the guess was closer than they ended up being. Her first appearance was in the book where Ben was born and she seemed pretty young. So for me, the more I thought about it, the more I loved the child of Luke and Mara marring the child of Corran and Mirax. The thought of the four of them being tied together through their children (and possible grandchildren). Quite a few people wrote Ben/Jys stories for that challenge, I think I'm the only person still around, though. A ship doesn't always have to be people that interacted a lot, we liked the idea of it so we wrote it and I came to love it.
