star wars - grand admiral thrawn by shorelle star wars - grand admiral thrawn by shorelle

so I just finished reading the Thrawn Trilogy and had to do a thing because wow Grand Admiral Thrawn was really great (I finally broke my no-EU-after-ROTJ thing after a lot of recommendations for it, and now I just wish I'd read it earlier!!)

I really appreciated how he was basically the exact opposite of Vader, yet made an incredibly badass antagonist and by the end I just wanted to see him continue throwing his military prowess against the New Republic and treating his subordinates with reasonable working conditions and holding Art Appreciation Thursdays :D

[begin wishful thinking] and what COULD HAVE BEEN the potential awesomeness of an Enemy Mine situation in the future and combining Imperial tactics with the new Jedi Order against a mutual enemy (like the Yuuzhan Vong?) and just. WE COULD HAVE HAD IT AALLLLLLL I mean what even was that ending sure it was fitting but STILL [/end wishful thinking]

Yeah! :C I wish he had survived, or had gone another way... there was so much potential for future plotlines!

Very cool! I love the pointed shape of his face here - it's unique from other square-jawed fan interpretations but very fitting. The stark background that looks like a picture frame is also really great.

I see below that you said the bigness of the EU is a bit intimidating, and I totally get that - I sortof dived into the New Jedi Order as a new fan, which I very much do not recommend, because it was quite confusing. lol However, something like the Imperial-Republic alliance you mention does occur during the New Jedi Order series, along with some familiar blue aliens.

Ahh thank you so much! (and yep, the background was vaguely meant to resemble a picture frame! :D)

Oh yeah, that's what I was afraid would happen and I'd start at the wrong place/have no idea what's going on - but whoooa I'm really intrigued about this Imperial/Republic alliance in the books! (and more Chiss, yesss :D) Will definitely need to check it out!

You're welcome! I'm really probably a bad one to talk about how to get into the EU, since having survived being thrown-feet first myself I simply recommend finding whatever you can and learning on the fly - but the NJO is a decent next stop after the Thrawn trilogy. It makes an effort to explain itself to new fans pretty well, with some things you've just gotta go with - Leia has three kids, Luke and Mara are married. It's long, though.

But anyway, whichever you read next I hope you enjoy the trip. :3
