It's got to feel slightly unreal to suddenly to get the very thing you'd been hoping for, especially when you thought it was going to be a lot more difficult to achieve. Being a Rebel agent doesn't seem like the kind of profession that's conducive to meeting girls...besides Sabine, of course, who seems to have thoroughly friend-zoned Ezra. He's nothing if not persistent, though, and you never know, she might have changed her mind! The stormtrooper bit...their lack of skill with firearms seems to be the aurodium standard of failure in the GFFA (and partially YOUR FAULT for bringing up certain memes ) And of course Mara goes for it! It's not everyday cute, Force-sensitive guys wander into your cantina. When even the Force tells you to go after him, it's too good an opportunity to pass up. (But don't go getting ahead yourself, Bridger!) Well, you know, "usual" is such a relative term. Ezra may be a Jedi, but he's still human...and male... Glad you enjoyed the fez I just had to put that in because, as Findswoman notes, Ezra in a fez (Fezra? ) would probably look a lot like a certain street-rat. Just give him a purple vest and some baggy pants. (Would Zeb and/or Chopper be his quirky sidekicks?) And yes, this is the continuation of the feud begun 'way back before Mara was born. Verraro is the type who neither forgives nor forgets. The Gamorrean-jowled thug who accosts her is Wilmot, Verraro's goon-in-chief who appears at the end of In the Cards. Isn't he, though? (Memories of teenage awkwardness and saying exactly the wrong thing to the person you were trying to impress are apparently good inspiration once you've had 20 years or so to take the edge of mortification off ) Glad you like the marketplace; it does seem like a fun place to spend a day...or a first date. It owes something to the markets from Mos Eisley and Mos Espa, as well as the bazaar in Casablanca...and the marketplace in Agrabah. Which makes it an appropriate place for Space!Aladdin and his fez. He may think he looks silly, but it no doubt looks better on Ezra than the local trend setter, Verraro the Hutt. (Fun fact: someone put a fez on Jabba's head during the production of RotJ to make him look like the character of Signor Ferrari from Casablanca) Mara finishing that sentence ("...the Imperial Prefect.") could definitely have lead to some awkwardness. I guess that will just have to come up later. Thank you so much Your advice and suggestions have helped a lot with this aspect. That warning came just a leeetle too late... It looks like trouble has a way of finding Mara, too. (Are we surprised?) Quick thinking will certainly be needed on both their parts! You don't have to wait much longer.
