    Disclaimer: Borrowing the characters with affection.

    Genre/Timeframe: Friendship/Legends.

    This is for SiouxFan ... who wanted something without dark Jacen but with he and Danni Quee, taking place Beyond the Saga. Other elements were apple cider and a missed connection.

    [face_batting]




    A small bang erupted from the console. A missed connection and a crossed wire and the entire navcomputer was fried. Danni sighed in frustration. She could chart her way through nebulae with her eyes closed but she was not mechanically inclined. She commed Jacen who was onworld presently.

    "Jaina's more handy with that stuff than I am. But I'll take a look. Can't the 'port techs fix it?"

    "They're the ones who gave me this krelling bit of outdated hardware to start with. I should have known when I got a replacement at such a low and reasonable rate there was a catch!"

    **

    Two hours later, with systems up and running again, Danni was all grateful smiles. She treated Jacen to tangible thanks with hot mugs of apple cider and homemade sweetcakes with fudge sauce on top.

    They talked animatedly about her new job on Kress as part of a research consortium delving into a unified theory of matter/energy.


    Jacen contemplated Danni thoughtfully. She was beautiful, poised, and intelligent. Somehow, though, by the time he'd taken a breath and realized there could be something between them, the time had past. Oddly, though, the door to his and Tenel Ka's present and future had never closed, despite intervening years and very harrowing life experiences which could have driven them in vastly different directions. When they had met up again, it was as if they'd never been apart.

    Odd, this thing called destiny. Two hearts which were meant to be together would find some way, despite stubborn avowals to the contrary ... Aunt Mara and Uncle Luke were a case in point.

    And if he needed another, his own folks would do just as well.

    He reached for a second slice of warm cake and promised Danni the two of them would keep in touch.

    Life could change in a minute, and if there was one lesson he'd learned, it was friendship was precious.

    Yep, never buy cheap nav equipment!

    Well...since Jacen's taken, I'll definitely listen to Danni talk about the unified theory! Wonder if she likes eggnog?

    Thanks for this! :)

    Ships passing in the hyperlanes...it happens, and sometimes for the best. Friendships are often better left as they began, particularly if you're a Jedi/descendant of Anakin Skywalker (I mean, that makes your life complicated enough!).

    Nice little vignette. :)

    Although I was a fan of the idea of Darth Caedus, I did not like how they actually wrote it out. Anyway, I could live with this version of Jacen and Danni.

    Nice piece, it's always interesting to see characters complex emotions and relationships during everyday situations :)

    What a lovely little fic, Nyota!

    I especially enjoyed this part:
    Somehow, though, by the time he'd taken a breath and realized there could be something between them, the time had past. Oddly, though, the door to his and Tenel Ka's present and future had never closed, despite intervening years and very harrowing life experiences which could have driven them in vastly different directions.
    Beautiful! @};-



    That last line is so true! You never know what will happen tomorrow.

    Thanks all. :) Those were the two overarching things I was going for: J/TK always meant to be and Danni and Jacen best friends and happy to relish that because you really have to take the moments that are given. [face_thinking]

    A nice little story. :) I feel Danni's frustration about hardware going ker-bang at exactly the wrong time (because I'm terrible with fixing things like that too); good thing Jacen could be there so quickly to help out. And I'm glad hot cider exists in the GFFA—a must at any cold time of year! :)

    I don't know most of these characters, but cake is always good. :) An appropriate gift, just like this viggie.

    Awww, this was nice. When in trouble with mechanical stuff, just call a Solo -- and then in true Nyota fashion, have something sweet to eat while you ponder on relationships and friendships, because it always helps :)

    Ahhh, this reminds me of how I hard I was shipping Jacen and Danni Quee when I was reading the NJO books!

    I liked this bit in particular:
    Somehow, though, by the time he'd taken a breath and realized there could be something between them, the time had past.

    (First fic I've read here in over 4 years by the way!)

    [face_laugh] Oh dear. Nice bit of everyday aggravation. Just because it’s space tech doesn’t mean it all works any better, necessarily.

    Interesting to see Jacen’s reflections on how he and Danni could have had their moment, maybe, but didn’t -- and that he and Tenel Ka ended up together even though there was so much separating them. And it’s lovely that they’re both still happy to be friends even though they didn’t end up together.

    Sweet story, and I like seeing some downtime with these characters! [face_love]

    Thanks so much, Kahara - everyday/down time style moments are my favorite kinds to read or write.

    I too am happy they can still be friends :D who want the other one to be happy even if it's not together. @};-
