Topic: TRUE COLORS Discussion Thread **SPOILER WARNING**

So, I just finished reading this awesome novel, and would love to discuss/make observations with my ner vods! smile
And this shall obviously be SPOILER HEAVY (because its a shabla discussion thread), so PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK! big_smile

So, thoughts on Fi? Ko Sai? Ms. Traviss' handling of Sev's POV?

Re: TRUE COLORS Discussion Thread **SPOILER WARNING**

I kind of liked Ko Sai big_smile I don't care if she has no heart, thinking every other race is inferior, and considers everyone like a genetic databank.... It's a shame she had to go the way she did but it was the most sensible thing I guess. A waste of talent, I say.

Sev's a good soldier, 'nuff said. He's a bit obsessive about not letting Vau down but that comes with Delta's training. The rest of the squad probably think the same since they're a real pod from day 1.

Fi will be all right, I'm sure tongue The good thing about his situation now is that he can live the life he always wanted.

Re: TRUE COLORS Discussion Thread **SPOILER WARNING**

I thought that KT handled the Ko Sai storyline exceptionally well; it seems that too many books/movies hype something up (for example, searching for Ko Sai) and then spend the entire movie/book looking and looking and they still haven't found whatever it is that there looking for. Now, I know that Sai was found at the very end of the book, but she was pushing up daisies not long after Skirata and company caught up with her. A very nice twist, IMHO.

Fi's accident came as a shock to me. But, as you said, now he's been given his life. But is he content because he's no longer part of the GAR, or is because what's-her-face is taking care of him (sorry, her name escapes me!)?

Also, I thought that KT handled Etain perdy well this time around. I don't know why, but she didn't rub me the wrong way like she did in Triple Zero.

Re: TRUE COLORS Discussion Thread **SPOILER WARNING**

It's Rav Bralor's niece, and her name is Parja.

If I remember well, he's described as "at peace" and no longer sighing in desperation for a life he can never have as a trooper in the GAR. If he's going to hook up with a local Mando woman it was barely implied. But the idea of retirement is there.

Yeah Etain was growing into a real pain, in TZ. Now she's the same pain in the rear with a purpose as a mother tongue I didn't like her chapters with Darman, too corny for me - even in Traviss style. It annoys me when she tries to be mandokarla.

There's no word like "hero" that could qualify any character, but my favorite is still Jusik. The events hits hard on him throughout the book but we barely witness it. That got me all anxious for him until the end... The chapter when Etain and him report to Zey really moved me. I was SO relieved!

First because we might finally get a chance to know him better as an individual, not running around the galaxy trying to fix things for others.

Secondly, I drew fan art of him going mando'ad, you saw it I think..... So you can imagine my emotion when he asked to keep his lightsaber :')

I wrote a very fangirly email to Karen just to thank her for that special moment.

Re: TRUE COLORS Discussion Thread **SPOILER WARNING**

Jusik was awesome. And yes, when he left the Order, I had a sort of "Ha!" moment at Zey. Yeah, for Jusik standing up for what's REALLY right. But, really, KT hit the issue on the head; Jusik is a jedi in the purest sense. And in being that, he just cannot stand the tyranny within the Republic.

I do have a question about Jusik keeping his lightsaber, however. I thought that when jedi left the Order they were required to relinquish them? I thought that I read that somewhere. But even if they were s'posed to, I guess that Zey was just, er, allowing him to keep some of his identity as a jedi? I don't know, I'm just musing. smile

And on a completely different note, what was your favorite, humorous part in TC? I think mine was when Omega was eating the stew and Atin asked what was in it. And as he was lurching for the bushes Niner said to no one in particular, "He's throwing up." *heeee* big_smile big_smile

Niner: Sergeant Obvious.

I thought the same; and it seems that Zey has this practical sense to him in the military fashion. He may not be an exemplary Jedi Master but he's a good general, he cares about his soldiers so I guess he values kit as much as they do. To me it just makes sense that you can keep what you built, too.

Hehe, yeah I laughed out loud a few times because of what a clone or Skirata said, but couldn't find the lines again. Oh, I remember a moment when Vau, Skirata and Ordo are in the sub, and Mird is watching something funny outside the viewport, rubbing it's snotty nose against the transparisteel ;P Then Skirata pulls it back and wipes the glass clean tongue

A lot of described situations would look hilarious if it were made in a movie big_smile

su'cuy vode!

Kandosii! I couldn't put the book down. I love how KT explores the Mando'ade subculture of the SW expanded universe. To see Kal'buir and the boys a few steps closer to their goals made me happy. Im not ashamed to admit there were a few tearjerker moments for me, as well as a few good laughs.

Kal'buir's the baddest sheb of all.

Until the next book...

Oya Vode!

Re: TRUE COLORS Discussion Thread **SPOILER WARNING**

Especially when he was holding Venku.  I was just like... GAH!!!  How much more of a right time can you get Skirata!  I have this sinking feeling he will never know...
