    im hoping for stories based on Kes Dameron and Shara Bey, Wilrow Hood, Adon Fox, his wife and blade squadron. I would say Twilight Company but they got their own story that was set during this time period.

    I already joked more than once that we could just cut/paste Namir/Chalis' Hoth scenes from Twilight Company into FACPOV ESB and be done with it.

    *checks on Veers Watch to make sure their heart didn't explode*

    Thinking about the mouse droid short from FACPOV-ANH and wondering what the 'weirdest' POVs will be this time around and which may have the most unique or creative prose styles. Luke's bizarre bacta tank dreams. Luke's severed hand as it falls. Dyspeptic exogorth. Lobot and his implants communicating with Cloud City's central computer.

    Mark Oshiro?!?!?!?!??!
    Now, that is a name I haven't heard of in a very long time.
    Used to follow his Reading and Watching blog years ago.

    I look forward to seeing Battle of Hoth stuff.

    Lol, perhaps we may even get a name for the poor Imperial captain who goes boom in the asteroid field and his ship.

    Who were the two cantina aliens in Cloud City again? A Walrus head and a... Snivvian?

    Did What's the Story establish they were crime-solving buddy cops or something in Legends, or am I just making that up?

    He's a sergeant in canon. Check Rebel Files.

    @jasonfry you got a piece in this? I hope you do. I hope you got Rogue Group Battle of Hoth.

    How about a story about Willrow Hood and his desperate attempt to escape cloud city with the most precious thing in all his life?

    This is great news. I hope Lobot gets a chance to shine and I hope there's at least one story that is totally bonkers.

    There are multiple stories that are - from our point of view - "totally bonkers"
