Re: The Sensitivity of Mr. Fett

Fett was repressing his emotions, he didn't want to be reminded of what happened in his past, but as years wore on, he opened up. A person in the end realizes they can't escape their past, what's done is done, and Fett obviously had enough of repressing his feelings. It's a psychological situation.

Re: The Sensitivity of Mr. Fett

the traviis fett is abit too emotional and nicey nicey.but like anybody he would have more than one side to his personality.hed push such emotions away when hes working.

SF is what life is all about.

Re: The Sensitivity of Mr. Fett

Honestly, after reading most of the posts on this thread, I just think that a seventy year-old man trying act like he's in his thirties would be unrealistic.

Re: The Sensitivity of Mr. Fett

that is very true but this is a whole new Fett Traviss is trying to portray soi guess its how open you are to change in Boba...i'm on the fence about it once again...it's a tough one.

Re: The Sensitivity of Mr. Fett

I have nothing against this new Fett.
In fact, I feel it makes more sense. Fett's life has never been explored properly, so Traviss is shining some light on Fett's past.

Re: The Sensitivity of Mr. Fett

We got two more books coming from her in the legacy series so who knows how much light she may shine. time will tell

Re: The Sensitivity of Mr. Fett

LIke the new Fett, as it shows evolution and growth.
I can accept the Sintas/Ailyn thing.
I also think that there was some kind of hint that he didn't just abandon the family, that the whole bad deal that went down on Concord Dawn with him killing his mentor also played a part. I think in a way new Fett is connecting with parts of old Fett as a kid that you saw in the Scholastic series. Considering he's facing death in a very personal way, it all makes very good sense, and I'm all about things making sense. :-)

Re: The Sensitivity of Mr. Fett

No!  *clings to the old ways*  ^_^
I just hope they don't let Denning screw with the character, as he has a VERY bad tendency to destroy good characters (the Dark Nest trilogy).

I'm already writing fanfic about Boba and Ailyn.

Re: The Sensitivity of Mr. Fett

I say to hell with Karen Traviss(even though Hard Contact and Triple Zero were damn good books). I can deal with Fett gaining something that resembles a soul,(like in Tales of the new Republic) but Fett having a child is too far.(But I'm also one of the few people that still sees Fett as Journeyman Protector Jaster Meerel exiled from Concord Dawn)

I've got a boner for murder-Sarge-Red vs. Blue

Fortunately, that's why there's fandom. A lot of people don't agree with how Boba Fett turned out and that's all OK to voice here. No agenda to push.

No agenda here...I just thrive off of healthy controversy.  wink

I agree with that too. Plus I think it's kinda naive to think that Fett doesn't have deeper emotions.

Re: The Sensitivity of Mr. Fett

I don't have any problem with Sintas/Ailyn itself, just the way it happened--it's okay for Fett to have had a wife and kid, but I don't like how it was so disfunctional.  I recognize that it's perfectly believable, considering his character, but if I were the writer I would have given him a happy marriage and a connection to his kid.  Sure, it's sappy for him to have a happily-ever-after.  But his life was awful already (Jango dying, him having no friends unless you count Dengar) and I think it would have been nice to give him just one ray of sunshine at some point during his pitiful existence.  I would have liked to have seen more compassion from Traviss and the other writers.

We like to think Fett's only interest in life is his work, but humans are social animals, and I refuse to believe that he can be happy without some sort of casual friendship etc.  And I do want him to be happy.  I don't want him to be overloaded with angst in everything I read.  I liked Bloodlines (excepting that some things Fett said and thought were really out of character) and was very pleased with the ending of the book.  For that reason I can accept the canoninity of Ailyn/Sintas.  But that doesn't mean I have to like Ailyn personally.

D'harhan could be described as a friend.

Re: The Sensitivity of Mr. Fett

Eh....not really. If Fett treats all his friends that way--knowingly sending him to his death, more or less....
