    Okay, it's time for the second post of today! Enjoy!

    :D

    -------

    Jag and I stood around while General Antilles' ship landed. It certainly wasn't a military ship, and Jag said it didn't belong to his uncle either. I sensed three other humans on the ship, but I didn't recognize any of them.

    The general came off the ship alone, and Jag and I walked over to greet him. He hugged Jag, and then me, which was a little surprising.

    "How are you doing, Jaina? Jag told me what happened."

    I shot a glance at Jag. "I'm all right, sir."

    He rolled his eyes. "Call me Wedge, Jaina. On board the Errant Venture no one is military."

    I smiled.

    Wedge turned his attention back to Jag. "I think I've brought some people you'd like to see."

    As if on cue, a woman who didn't look too much older than Mom, and two small children came down the boarding ramp. The two children ran to us, crying, "Jag! Jag!"

    Jag met them, dropped to his knees, and hugged them both. I looked over at Wedge, and we smiled. Once the children let go of him, Jag stood and hugged his mother.

    Wedge and I walked over to them. Jag turned to me and said, "Jaina, this is my mother. Mother, this is Jaina Solo."

    I shook her hand, and she laughed. "My son forgets that I do actually have a name. Please, call me Syal. And these are my children, Danae and Jaremye," she added, gesturing to the children clinging to Jag.

    Little Jaremye, who was five, pointed up at me and said, "Jag, is she a Jedi?"

    Jag looked down at his brother. "Why don't you ask her?"

    The boy turned to me. "Are you a Jedi?"

    I smiled. "What makes you think that?"

    "You've got a lightsaber."

    "Yes, I'm a Jedi," I replied, nodding, "and I'm a pilot too."

    "Jaina's a pilot with Rogue Squadron," Wedge added. The boy's eyes grew wide. He knew about Rogue Squadron.

    The girl, who looked to be about seven, asked, "If you're a Jedi, are you a better pilot than my brother?"

    I laughed. "No one is as good as your brother, Danae. Though we all try very hard," I added, throwing a glance at Wedge.

    "I wouldn't go that far, Jaina. I have shot him out a few times," the general replied.

    Syal smiled at me and said, "Wedge told me that my son has been serving as your bodyguard. I hope he's been doing a good job in that capacity."

    I decided it was time to embarrass Jag. "Well, aside from being a little overzealous and walking in on me while I was in the shower, and just following me around everywhere and annoying me a little, he's been doing a pretty good job."

    Jag narrowed his eyes as Syal and Wedge laughed. "You like me and you know it."

    "I happen to like nice men, who knock before entering a 'fresher."

    He put his arm around my waist. "You like me because I'm an Imperial. There haven't been enough of those in your life."

    I rolled my eyes as Syal and Wedge exchanged that look I had become so familiar with. I found I no longer minded. After all, not ten minutes before, Jag had kissed me.

    "Syal, you look tired," Wedge said, changing subjects. "Why don't we get some of Booster's people to take you and the kids to your suite?"

    "All right. Jaina, will you join us?"

    I shook my head. "Not tonight. I really need to get some sleep. I'm sorry."

    She smiled. "That's quite all right, dear. I'm sure we'll have plenty of time to get to know each other before my trip here is over."

    Jag cleared his throat. "Jaina, I'll escort you to your stateroom. Mother, I'll meet you at your suite in a few minutes." He leaned down and kissed his mother on the cheek before leaving with me.

    Not long before we arrived at my room, I said, "Your siblings are adorable."

    "I think so most of the time, though I've heard Danae can be a handful." He smiled. "I think she'll really like you, though. She likes people who are tough like you are, but you should be able to show her that a girl can be tough and not be a tomboy."

    "Who says I'm not a tomboy?" I asked as we came to my door.

    "Oh, I don't know," he replied casually. He cupped my face with his hands and kissed me, ta

    Very. :D I can't wait to see Han deal with Jag. That'll be classic too.

    Okay, I've decided what I'm going to do with a sequel. It won't be in first-person like this one, because I find it difficult to write in first-person from a male perspective. However, I've got some ideas.

    Does anyone want to see a teaser?

    :D

    Great two posts, Mel! Great job bringing Syal and Jag's family into the story!

    and no my browser still doesnt work, this is from a different computer because I couldn't see either on mine.

    teaser? not unless you plan to start in two weeks or less ;)

    Sure.

    An even better idea would be to write a fanfic trailer in SiriGallia's thread in the Writer's Resource board. I did one for my latest Wes and Hobbie story.

    That thread rocks. In the old one I'd posted a trailer for Shadows of Liberty, and LanceJade did the trailer bunny for Optional Retirement that I later wrote because... well.. it needed to be done.

    Anyway, whatever. Here, there, everywhere. I'm up for it.

    Later!

    That's entirely possible, my friend.

    Actually, I don't know how far I will be taking this story. It's possible that I will end this soon, write the story about Jacen, maybe throw in a tale of Anakin and/or Tahiri, then after the next book comes out, write a continuation of this one. I don't know yet.

    All I know is that I have some interesting plot ideas for the Jacen story.

    I would write a trailer, Orion, but scripts are not my forte. I figure from the response I got earlier in this thread that I don't really need the advertising.

    However, I think I will post a teaser for the sequel as soon as I think up a name for it...

    :D

    Cool. They can be fun. Personally, I don't think script-writing is my forte either, but you can make them pretty fun.

    I don't know, padawan lunetta. The deal is that a great deal of the sequel will be taking place in the time that Jacen is gone from this story. So, since I tend to work in chronological order, I've got that story running around in my head. These stories kind of dovetail into each other. (What would you expect? They're twins!)

    Anyway, I'm not sure when this story will end.

    Aww, those were cute. Jag buzzes through the channels about as fast as I do... I just don't have a lady-friend around at the time. :(
    Hehehe, let's see what Han does with Jag, eh? [face_devil]

    Wow! Two posts in one day... this is overload! And they were excellent posts, too. Heh. Jag and the holochannels reminds me of a guy I know (actually two, they're brothers), who'll be riding along in a car somewhere and abruptly start changing stations, just when a song I like is on. Very annoying.

    Again, great posts! :D

    Actually, the thing about Jag flipping through the channels too fast and Jaina complaining is completely ripped off of my mom and dad.

    So, do I post a teaser for the sequel? It's already written...(yes, we're going back to that compulsive overachiever thing again... ;) )

    The SEQUEL's already written? Man, for an overachiever you sure write fast... ;)

    Just kidding. If you bothered writing it, give it to us. I'll allow myself to be teased this time.

    If you can write a teaser that fast, how about you write more of this that fast? ;)

    It ate the teaser. I haven't started the next section of story yet.

    So does anyone want me to post a teaser for the sequel? I've rewritten it, so I can post if there's interest. :D
