Go on...

We literally just posted about it in spoilers

I literally read the spoilers and I don't understand the context. What's the "something we've all wondered about and possibly wanted them to do."

Spoiler: show
Great Padme is in it, maybe, or maybe not, but what's the context? Also who/what is Sabe? I can look that up I just thought it would be easier for wease to be more specific about what he meant here.

Just read a synopsis. Now I see why my post was dumb. Sorry team. Though, wease, I'm still not sure how this is ""something we've all wondered about and possibly wanted them to do."

That's what through me because I personally never gave this kind of thing a thought and I haven't see much speculation about it. Seemed like a done deal to me. I was just overthinking as usual.

:lol:

I haven't been the same since I yelled at Ruddo. I'm basically just in free fall now. It's terrifying and I hate it.

For hearing all my doubts so selectively and
For continuing my numbing endlessly
For helping you, and myself, not even considering
For beating myself up and over-functioning
To whom do I owe the biggest apology?
No one's been crueler than I've been to me

For letting you decide if I indeed was desirable
For my self-love being so embarrassingly conditional
And for denying myself to somehow make us compatible
And for trying to fit a rectangle into a hole
To whom do I owe the biggest apology?
No one's been crueler than I've been to me

I'm sorry to myself
My apologies begin here before everybody else
I'm sorry to myself
For treating me worse than I would anybody else

Spoiler: show
I felt safe in assuming what Vader did after his failure to bring Luke over to the Dark Side and what he did as far as investigating Luke once he knew the kid that blew up the Death Star was his kid. And at this point in the story, he still has no idea there were two kids. He's thinking Luke is the only one. And his investigations are taking him places like Tattooine which I've long wondered if he ever went back to or at least wondered about. Did the Stormtroopers that wiped out Owen and Beru KNOW who they just killed?

Ah, see that's some shit I can get on board with. And makes so much more sense and contextualizes your comment much better for me. Turns out it has little to nothing to do with the conversation happening in the spoiler tags. Thanks, buddy. Makes much more sense to me. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Finally finished Resistance Reborn. Fairly boring and disappointing book.

Yeah, this one was a real letdown. I'm not sure if they were keeping elements of Rey's story close to the vest going into ROS, or if the author wasn't very clear on how to approach writing her, but, she's essentially an afterthought in this one with very little development or personality. Spends most of the book ambling around, asking Leia if she wants tea.

Very true.

Also the only villain that gets plenty of time and some limited development, is such a cardboard archetype of a bad guy, that he’s only boring.

Wedge at the start, and Poe in the second half of the book, are the most interesting characters. No one else gets to really breathe.

Agreed. Wedge being featured was a pleasant surprise, and it was clear from the way they wrote Poe that he had learned, or was at least beginning to appreciate, the necessary lessons stemming from his behavior in TLJ.

Yes, I think that was the main thing I got from the book, a better appreciation and understanding of Poe.

The new canon books started off sooo well. Some genuinely great books that added so much.

They just seem to have completely plateaued into unnecessary

I think this is my main gripe, as well. Not enough tantalizing breadcrumbs to feast on which lead to anything more substantial.
I've actually started to go back and listen to all of the Timothy Zahn books from the early/mid 90s.

I'm not sure what this says, if anything, about my subconscious reaction to ROS's lasting impact on me (or maybe lackthereof?)

One thing the new books did well was to feed and supplement the new films. Then suddenly they didn’t.
It’s a shame.
