Um. Sorry, but you have Mara really... out of character here.
I mean, I get doing a tribute, but maybe choose something that represents all four characters you're illustrating?
It's marginally more likely to be LUKE doing the clinging here.

Very cool. I have the 20th anniversary edition of the Heir to the Empire novel, and I hope to get it signed by Mr. Zahn himself soon!

Luke: Of course I'm awesome, look who's snuggling me!
Mara: Faaaaarmboooooy?
Luke: Yes honey?
Mara: We need to go IN the cave before you call yourself awesome.
Luke: Oh, right.

Wow...that's actually a good twist between the two. I'm not sure I'd even call this a "parody" twist. I've read the Thrawn Trilogy myself--excellent series, and this does the books a very wry, Han Solo-esque salute. Good work!

A brilliant crossover of two great stories. Well done. The intimate gesture of Mara and Luke is especially impressive.

Amazing! Not only does it look astouding, but you got the characters down pat! Thrawn with his usual smooth, kick-butt self, and C'Baoth with his crazy anger issues. And of course Luke and Mara complete it all! So great, I love it!

You may have guessed by now that I am a fan of Timothy Zahn.

Thank you.

Nice nods to both "Tron" and "Thrawn"- it's an overall awesome "Tron-Thrawn"-nod =D
