Thanks to everyone who stopped by to read Zane's zaniness! (See what I did there? ) A few quick replies to everyone's very kind reviews: Mistress_Renata Thank you! This is all your fault in the first place, so I'm glad you liked it! I loved how you had him turn up in one of your RPG posts; somehow I sense that this is going to be a ghost-like figure that appears at the most random times around Black Sheep squadron. Come to think of it, bringing his mother into the picture at an unexpected time could create an interesting conundrum for Bardan_Jusik BookExogorth Thanks! Ask and you shall receive (You're going to have to put a bit of effort to imagine it in Sy Snootles's voice though!) gizkaspice Thank you! My humorous muse has been comatose for a while, but this is a story that demanded to be written once Renata planted the idea in my head. Also, I thought that Zane should be somehow lucky in his misfortune – he isn't going to stay on Hoth too long given the timing of his arrival, so his experience with an ice world after a desert world is thankfully going to remain limited. pronker Thanks for reading, I'm glad I could cheer you up! I'm not sure I'd say that Zane "thought fast" though, or even that he's capable of thought at all But then, he probably did find the one place where he's safe from Jabba, his mum and the Empire... until the Empire turns up on Hoth, that is! Also, I had the same reaction as Cowgirl Jedi 1701 about "bringing home the bacon" applies to Gamorreans... although the idea that it could mean getting married didn't cross my mind! leiamoody Thank you! I should have known that you, of all people, would spot the Cabaret reference. There's a snapshot of the TCW Gamorrean clown on the Wook, and yeah, tragicomic pretty much sums it up. As for the drink to accompany this reply, would you care for a Cosmic Rose Shooter? WarmNyota_SweetAyesha Thanks! Zane did escape from the Jabba/Empire/Mum mess, but it's a bit like falling out of the frying pan and into the fire, right? The good thing (for him) though is that he doesn't know it yet. Thanks again to everyone who took the time to review, or even just to read!
