Ok just wondering but was anybody else disturbed by the fact that its now been canonized that Tahiri entered a sexual relationship with Jacen during her Sith apprenticeship? Do you think they'll have fixed this mess by the time this book comes out?

Uh...they have? I did not realize this. If so, then yes! I don't appreciate that at all. Though...in all reality, it's understandable. Confused

*gag* I choose to believe that Tahiri's response didn't mean that. Otherwise my sanity would be in jeopardy.

I guess it just kind of freaked me out because she was still in love with Anakin and she had physical rlations with his brother as a means of dealing with it. Kinda...just kinda strange.

(Last reply to this subject from me, I promise) Since the book has been out for a month, I won't use the spoiler-tag, but yeah, I can see that. However, if you look at cases of real-life trauma, it is very similar to Tahiri's reaction. Humans want something, or someone, familiar for comfort. That's just human nature and Star Wars has, since its very start, been about exploring human nature and what people react to and why they react that way.

So, I can certainty your distaste towards it; especially after growing up and seeing Tahiri as someone so sweet but people change. Sometimes, though, the change isn't for the best and they can be shown that. (In Tahiri's case Ben did this for her.)

A Raynar pic would be good, but I would rather have a decent Jaina one too.

I think we also need a group picture of these new Jedi that Jaina was hanging out with. The ones they called The Unit. That would be very cool. And with them not being crazy anymore, I'm sure we'll see them again.

I would love that. The only pictures we have of Valin and Jysella are kiddie ones. Sad

Agh! Super-duper, majorly major, ridiculously huge SPOILERS! Please proceed at your own risk, and I really, really mean that.

This is a blurb for Conviction, which already gives away practically the entire happenings of Vortex! I mistakenly listened to it, thinking it to be the blurb for Vortex, and I would suggest that unless you want to know the outcome of everything in Vortex, do not read this blurb! But...everyone should at least have the chance to know, if they really want to:

Last chance! Step away from the blurb!

*backs away slowly* No thanks. I prefer to remain spoiler free.

Good choice. Although, for once, they are spoilers I do not regret having learned. If it were up to me to do over, I wouldn't have listened. But now that it has been done, I don't regret it. They were things I was hoping for and predicting anyway, so I suppose it worked out okay. Smile
