Mara, Luke and Ben Skywalker by FalconFan Mara, Luke and Ben Skywalker by FalconFan
Star Wars EU--Luke and family, having a quiet moment (which, when one reads all the post ROTJ novels, seem to be in short supply, lol!). I just wanted them to have a bit of "quality time," so I gave it to them here!

Luke:Sorry, Yoda, but you were an idiot. Attachment is TOTALLY worth it!

Hee!  I agree completely, and was so glad Luke finally decided to ditch that particular (and outmoded) Jedi edict.  It's lovely to think of him just kicking back with his wife and infant son...  Thanks so much for the view and the comment! :D

Of course he did. While Yoda might well poke him after Sacrifice and say 'Worth it, still you think?' Luke need only point at his son and say 'yes. Yes it is. I wouldn't trade the years I had with her for 900 without her.'

Such a great picture of this family. Always wanted to see their story on the big screen.

Thank you very much for the kind words--yeah, I'd LOVE to see their story on the big screen; and actually, it got short-shrift in the novels, too, with a lot of "skipping around and over" all the important moments in their family life.  Many thanks for the :+fav:, as well! :D

I LOVE this!!! SO sweet! It captures perfectly the quiet, yet unwavering, deep love that Luke has for his wife and son. Two thumbs up!

Yes--poor Luke never really got much time to do just this: sit and cuddle with Mara and Ben, apart from the chaos that seemed to dog their entire family life from the start...  I suppose that was the reason for the drawing--to see that quiet moment for them, that we never read about in the profiction...  Thank you for the visit, the kind words, and for the added :+fav:! :XD:

I thought I commented on this before, but I don't see where I have. I love this! One big happy family before the EU took a nasty turn. :(

AW! I think you commented on it when I posted it at TF.N, so no worries here! I totally agree: this happy family was devastated by the story arcs in the EU...I don't know why they couldn't have had Luke and Mara grow old together, with Ben growing to be a Jedi Master in his own right... I guess that's what fan fic is for then! Thanks so much, my friend! :hug:

Aw, thank you for the kind words! I'm glad you like it; it was something I wanted to see myself: some "quiet time" for the Skywalker family--no battles, no blasters or bombs or narrow escapes... Just a lazy afternoon, with everyone cuddled together for a little nap... Thank you again--for the comment, and for the :+fav:! :D

"They look like a normal family."

That's what I was hoping to show: that the great Jedi Master is, indeed, still a man, with a wife and little boy--and that some quiet "cuddle time" is still important to him, to all of them. Thanks for the :+fav: for this, and for taking time to comment! :D

Aw, thanks! :blushes: I'm so glad you like it--I always thought there should be a few more of these little "scenes" in the books--even if it was just a few lines at the end of a chapter or something: the little Skywalker family having a quiet moment together, or the same for the Solo family... I guess that's one of the reasons I did this piece--to SEE what I so wanted to read... Thanks again for the visit and the kind words!

Thanks so much! I'm glad you like it, and I truly appreciate the :+fav: for it, as well--particularly since it's in Scraps! I always wished we had been able to read more of the "down time" for Luke and his little family--it seemed there was so little of that for them...

Again--thanks for the kind words, and especially for the :+fav:!

Aw, thanks! I'm so glad you liked it enough to :+fav: (much appreciated, since it isn't in the regular gallery!)! I suppose it's a moment I visualized for them: just some "down time," no battles or missions or meetings or the like--just the little family, dozing quietly in a cozy cuddle... Seems like they got SO little of that in the books...

Again--many thanks--for the kind words, and for the :+fav:! :D

"Hiding good art in the 'Scraps' are we?"

Not at all! This piece was done a long time ago, and I simply felt it wasn't on par with the later, slightly-more-finished work in the gallery proper. I'm glad you like it, though--thanks tons for taking time to look, and for the :+fav:--for a scrap! :D

Aw, thanks! It's always good to hear this comes across that way, as that was the reason I drew it: to show Luke and his little family at rest and peaceful for a change--they got so little of that, it seems to me...

Moments like these in Star Wars, even the EU are very rare and at times are definitely needed to lighten the mood.
