    NOTHING IS CERTAIN


    The only thing that makes life possible is permanent, intolerable uncertainty; not knowing what comes next.
    ~ Ursula K. LeGuin ~





    @};- Chapter One


    I certainly wasn't happy. Happiness has to do with reason, and only reason earns it. What I was given was the thing you can't earn, and can't keep, and often don't even recognize at the time; I mean joy.
    ~ Ursula K. LeGuin ~



    ?Its okay, Hallie, shh ? its okay,? Jag soothed the wailing infant against his shoulder. Rubbing her back gently and swaying slightly, father and daughter danced in a centuries-old rhythm known to parents everywhere.

    Jara and Rand were crying, too. Jag heard Rand?s screams escalate as Syal brought her grandson back upstairs. Jara seemed to be quieting a little as she lay in her crib.

    ?He just cannot be pacified, Jagged.? She locked eyes with her son. ?They?re just completely wearing themselves out.? And us. There was a

    I'm still reading and catching up with the Best of Us. But I saw the new topic, and couldn't help myself. I needed to read this. LOL :D

    You don't waste anytime in throwing in the tension and suspense, oldj. I love it![face_dancing] Congrats on getting this going. And before your planned post time too? That's a huge treat for us.

    The moments with the babies, and Mara's uncertainty with Luke's decision were especially memorable. And Jaina doesn't know who she is? Let the search for identity begin! [face_batting]

    You're off to an exciting start!=D=

    Yeeeeeeeessssss! Amnesia! I don't know what other FF authors have done with it, but it works for my story - you'll see.

    ?We love you, Jay.? Jag whispered. ?Please come back to us.? MAJOR FLASHBACK!

    LOL! Yeah, with a triple twist!

    Yay, Myra! *Hands Myra chocolate* Congrats!

    [face_laugh] Hey, it was awfully close!

    Great job! Interesting seeing how the babies need Jag and Jaina more than anyone else?and how sad that she's not there. And she has amnesia! *gasp*

    Thanks! Well, their bonds are strongest with their parents so far. And, yeah, she's really not "there". *Uh-oh*

    Can't wait for more!

    Thanks! I woke up early this morning, inspired and ready to go, and have been writing for an hour and a half already! Its only 0840 now. LOL!

    Thanks so much!


    Inara:

    I was very excited to see a new post - and the DP made me jump in joy!! All those Chiss in it!!

    :) I should have known that would make you happy! I rather enjoy the idea of a nasty Chiss underbelly. Every society has one, be it political, philosophical or judicial in nature. Intrigue and in-fighting appear consistently throughout SW. I think the Chiss remain mysterious and therefore are ripe for the picking to the imaginations of FF authors.

    Very suspenseful but very gripping...I'm not surprised at all

    Thank you. And don't worry, the Chiss will appear soon.


    Wynssa:

    Great start! So Jaina is suffering from amenesia, Jag has three babies on his hand who want their mother who doesn't know who she is. Sounds like a typical day in the Solo household Can't wait for more!

    [face_laugh] "A typical day" ... how true! Its always something!! Thanks, Wyn!

    Thank you! Glad to have you along for the ride. I do hope you enjoy it.

    Woman! You leave with arguing J/J and missing Lando and family, and now this? Ugh, so sad. But of course I'll read every word of it.

    O:) Sad? What's sad? *looks around innocently* Me? Write angst? Ha! *giggles* Seriously, thanks for the R&R - always happy to have you with me!


    AvenKiel:

    Holy crap OJ, what the heck have you done this time?!! Can't wait to see more!!

    [face_devil] Hey, gotta make it interesting! Happy to see you again - I appreciate you coming back for more!

    That's always such a good sign.

    Isn't it? :p ;)

    Love the way this is going already though. Fantastic!

    Thanks very much! Hope you continue to enjoy.

    [blockquote]Jag mentally berated himself. Of course he would stay with them. How could he not? His children were gifts beyond measure, but for the first time in his life, Jag felt the agonizing weight of not being free to follow his heart?s desire ? and that yearning would have Jag leave to find his wellspring of joy, whose return was long overdue.[/blockquote]

    Thinks Mr. Meticulous should subcontract that out to one of his many friends...;)


    Great start OldJ....Looking forward to more...

    I should have known that would make you happy!

    [face_blush]I guess there is no point in hiding the fact anymore that the I [face_love] the Chiss.


    I rather enjoy the idea of a nasty Chiss underbelly. Every society has one, be it political, philosophical or judicial in nature. Intrigue and in-fighting appear consistently throughout SW. I think the Chiss remain mysterious and therefore are ripe for the picking to the imaginations of FF authors.

    I totally agree. It's interesting because Zahn tended to make the Chiss rather utopian in his novels, kind of like the perfect culture without the emotional hangups. :rolleyes: But I think the Chiss are just as susceptible to underhandedness - perhaps even more so - as any other race. In fact, it makes them so much more interesting when they are being sneaky - when Formbi played Luke and Mara in SQ and again in TJK, I fell in love. [face_love]


    Once again, my storyline is big and complicated - I always bite off too much - but I also think I thrive on the tension of having to finish the chaos that I start!

    Big, complicated, chaotic - that's what we all want. :D

    BTW, my excitement to see how Jaina and Jag handle married life is almost on part with all the Chissy underbelly business. [:D]

    Do you do update PMs? If so, I'd love to have one for this story.

    Writer's block my big ole' behind. What are you talking about? That was practically perfect in every way.

    I'm back from Disney and am turning you into Mary Poppins.

    Mara had no problems telling Luke he was wrong. Heck, I wanted to tell him that before. Wrong! Wrong! Wrong!. Jaina too, I'm just saying.

    Amnesia?:eek: Nice going.

    This wouldn't happen to have anything to do with a mysterious Calrissian disappearance, would it?

    The plot thickens. Oooohhh. Aaaahhh.

    Brilliant as always oldj. Need I say more?
