    Excellent. You've got Han down perfectly too. Great posts! Personally, as long as we're breaking Kyp, I'd go with a missing limb. Randomly pick one. A lightsaber through the foot BEFORE the punch (or elbow, or kick, ect ect ect,)to the jaw would really ruin Kyp's day...

    Just a thought. I will wait in anxious anticipation for the post that maims Kyp. Later

    Okay, I'm going to get caught up on commenting to you wonderful people.

    Sticks: Personally I like js2k1's version of meeting Ben better.

    Rogue...Jedi: Good intuition there. Now I can go take all that out of the story... ;)

    padawan_lunetta and LTJainaSolo: Thanks for reading!

    Orion_Star and Freyja: Writing Han is easy. I just imagine what my dad would say if he showed up and I had a bodyguard all of the sudden...come to think of it, I don't know why so many of the profic writers seem to have such difficulty with Han.

    All you Kyp-haters: Don't worry, it's coming.


    Anyway, the next post is ready and waiting, though I think I'll probably post it tomorrow. If I post it now, you definitely won't get one tomorrow. Remember, patience is a virtue, of which most of us have none... :D

    Don't we all, Eldritch.

    You asked this elsewhere, but AU stands for alternate universe. This story will probably turn that way eventually.

    Oh, this is my three hundredth post! *takes a bow*

    Just read what you've posted so far, Melyanna, and have really enjoyed it. Hopefully Jag will have *some* sort of re-entrance into the NJO, and I like your version of it! Looking forward to upcoming scenes!

    Okay, we're now having what we literary types call "character development". Enjoy!

    -------

    After dinner that evening Jacen, Anakin, Tahiri, and I stopped by the tapcafe, intent on conversation away from the adults. For some reason, we didn't talk much while we were there. Instead, we just relaxed, enjoying the others' prescence in the Force.

    We'd been in there a long time when Dad and Jag showed up. Anakin and Tahiri were practically asleep by then. Dad and Jag took the booth behind us.

    The waiter droid approached and asked, "What can I get you, gentlemen?"

    "The best Corellian whiskey Booster Terrik can muster," Dad answered, predictably.

    "The same," Jag said.

    The droid returned with their drinks a few minutes later, and Dad asked, "So what are we drinking to, kid?"

    I winced as Dad called him that. Jag's sense in the Force betrayed nothing. "To old friends, who haven't really left us."

    I heard the glasses clink. After a pause, Dad stated, "Jaina told you about Chewie."

    I suspect Jag nodded.

    Dad continued, "All three of my children are Jedi, but I don't think that they, even with the Force, could understand what I went through. I doubt you could either."

    "On the contrary, sir-"

    "Han."

    "Han." Jag hesitated. "About two months before I took command of Spike Squadron, I was on leave for a few weeks. My sister and I went hiking in the mountains one day. Somehow I lost my balance, slid down a slope, and broke my leg. If it hadn't been for her, I would have died that night in the cold.

    "A few days later, there was some fighting going on. I could have flown even with a broken leg, but my sister insisted on going out in my place."

    A heavy silence fell. I heard the soft thud of an empty glass hitting the table. Dad said, "I take it she never came home."

    "There wasn't enough left of her for a burial." Jag's voice seemed oddly choked, but he continued. "The point is that I know how horrible it can be when someone dies in your place, how impossible it is to deal with...

    "But your daughter said something to me that was remarkably insightful. She said that taking away a sentient being's right to make his own decisions is to relegate a person to a living death. Kyria made her own decisions, and so did Chewbacca.

    "That got me thinking some more. I realized that Kyria made that choice out of love. It was, in a way, a gift. To wish I could change the past is a slight against her."

    Silence fell again, and I could sense Jag becoming more comfortable with my dad, and Dad relaxing a little about Jag. It could have been the alcohol, but I doubted it.

    A chirp from a commlink broke the silence. "Solo," Dad said. After a pause, he said, "Don't touch anything. I'll be right there." He stood. "I hate to cut this short, but the landing bay claims there's something wrong with the Falcon. I like Booster, but I don't trust those clowns he hired."

    Jag laughed as Dad hurried away. After a minute or two, he said, "Jaina."

    I jumped at the sound of my name. "What is it, Jag?"

    "I didn't see you, but I thought you were there." He stood and turned to face us. "The four of you look tired. Do you mind if I break things up and escort Jaina back to her room?"

    Jacen smiled at me, that stupid smile he used to irritate me. I glared back at him, but I got up and left with Jag anyway.

    -------

    There ya go!

    Countdown to Kyp: 1 post!

    :D
