Mara Jade Skywalker is, unfortunately, not back. Contrary to appearance. But this is her first post in over six months, so we can briefly celebrate that *party, party*.
No, Mara is here because she is saddened that she hasn't been able to visit with her Cantina friends in so long, and also that she hasn't been able to post the videos she has made in her time since being gone. She knows that her EU friends will (hopefully) enjoy them, and so wants to share.
The first is a dedication to Obi-Wan. Didn't you ever feel sorry for him? I know I did. It seemed that everyone he loved was lost to him, and it also seemed to be his fault each time. So, when I heard the song No Good Deed from the Wicked Broadway musical, I almost immediately felt that it was exactly what Obi-Wan must be thinking. Of course the song is sung by a female, but please don't let that bother you. I tried changing the pitch in the song to sound more like a male, and while this was fairly successful, I found that it just didn't fit. So I left the original, which seemed more appropriate, and exhibited the emotion I was looking for. Overall, the show was meant to reflect the thoughts that Obi-Wan must have had upon losing each of his dear friends, and ultimately his thoughts during the early part of solitude on Tatooine. My sister made this video, but I was the one who convinced her to use the original recording of the song. We both agree, now that it's done, that it works best.

The second is a dedication to you guys! I don't know which of you was able to go to the Star Wars concert, and I know it was a long time ago for me, but I was never able to share my experiences from there! So I just wanted to post my favorite piece (that I *coughillegallyvideoedcough*) that brought me the most incredible chills.
Battle of the Heroes
Padmè was there, also, and can tell you more about it if you have questions.
There will be more in the future as I am able to upload them, but for now I certainly hope you enjoy these additions from the Not-Really-Here-Mara. She wishes you the best, and hopes to rejoin, officially, as soon as she can!
