Happy New Year... A Week Late!
Welcome to 2013, kids! Aw, Han and Leia making out at midnight. Of course. And once again, poor Luke because there is no Mara action figure.
My first bit of advice is don't listen to anyone who tries to tell you that this was the year that Marty McFly went into the future. He didn't. It was 2015. You still have a couple more years to figure out hoverboards.
I know things have slowed down around here this year. I do hope the trend does not continue although I can't make any promises. I'd love to see the book reviews continue to make headway, again, so that after we cover them all I never have to read them again and maybe only have to check the reviews for the good parts! I'd also love to see the joint story continue. But then again, it's not my turn to write the next chapter...
I feel as though January always sees a resurgence in the Han and Leia fandom. I don't know if it works this way elsewhere, but it feels like people come back again right about now. And I think I've spent more than one New Year's Eve talking back and forth on NHP with other fans who maybe haven't been around in a while. While I was spending this year much the same, alone at home that night, that didn't happen this time. But I think it would be bad not to mention that the infamous Green Branches story "Something Left Undone" has been updated for the first time in nearly two years. If you're around, thank you for not abandoning it! Now tell us what all that noise was that Han was making! ;)
Hopefully everyone is beginning a good year. I personally need a good one. And hopefully we can all get writing and commenting again because it's been too quiet around here. It'd also be nice to hear from some people who seem to have all but vanished. Seams? Virgo12? jzhanfan seems to be slowly coming back. Hikari no tsubasa? And Stoned Rose, for the love of the gods, please make 2013 be the year that you finally update While You Were Gone!
Happy New Year!
