    Thanks to @devilinthedetails for this great challenge.
    Mulan Quote Challenge
    Number two:
    We must be swift as a coursing river with all the force of a great typhoon with all the strength of a raging fire, mysterious as the dark side of the moon."
    Context: During the Thrawn Crisis, after the events surrounding the Katana fleet where Luke went to rescue Mara Jade.

    ~!

    Mon Mothma and Leia gave stirring speeches to bolster the lagging morale during the most anxious intervals during the Thrawn crisis.

    One of the more memorable ones was when Leia spoke over the Holonet soon after her twins were born, which in and of itself was a mood-lifter.
    “We must be swift as a coursing river with all the force of a great typhoon with all the strength of a raging fire, mysterious as the dark side of the moon."

    Something that was almost a footnote was Luke's frantic and determined rescue of someone he claimed to barely know and who claimed in turn not to want to give him the time of day, at the very least... Mara Jade.

    Han and Wedge had their own theories as to the motivation.

    "Kid's got it bad," Han surmised.

    "Head over heels," Wedge agreed.

    "Wonder if she'll let him catch her," Han mused.

    "Like Leia did you?" Wedge rejoined.

    "Hey! That's not a fair comparison." Han said...
    Then again, maybe it was.

    Thank you so much for submitting a story for my Mulan Quote Challenge! You captured the spirit of the quote so perfectly in this piece:)

    My favorite part:

    "Kid's got it bad," Han surmised.

    "Head over heels," Wedge agreed.

    "Wonder if she'll let him catch her," Han mused.

    "Like Leia did you?" Wedge rejoined.

    "Hey! That's not a fair comparison." Han said...
    Then again, maybe it was.


    That made me laugh but also warmed my heart.

    Great job with this, and thank you again for participating in my Mulan mini-challenge!

    I like.

    Also, I know where your title is from. It's from a song. "Chasing the bright elusive butterfly of love...."

    love the comments from the men. Luke and Mara; before they got definitely together, a lot happened

    :p If the Corellian shoe fits, Han... Even as Leia is giving strength to others with her inspiring words (as she does so well), Luke is putting that determination into practice too! [face_dancing]
