Title: Quagmire Author: Kajata Rating: T Chapters: 36 Words: 219,650 Updated: Sep 28, 2011 Published: Jun 14, 2010 Status: Complete Summary: As the Battle of Endor approaches a Jedi and a spy find themselves on common, boggy ground. Link: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6051581/1/Quagmire Quagmire is one of those Star Wars fics that while very excellent even to a person whose only seen the movies, the experience reading them is completely enhanced when having read many of the expanded universe novels, especially the critically acclaimed Thrawn Trilogy. It's an alternate universe story that takes place during and around the events of Return of the Jedi and offers an interesting and believable take on Mara Jade infiltrating the Rebellion and meeting Luke Skywalker earlier then she did in continuity. While there are a few cases of typo's, it doesn't detract from this amazing story that deals with Luke Skywalker and the character of Mara Jade, an Imperial Assassin for the Emperor. This story is a goldmine with many references to various parts of the expanded universe that as a person who's read those novels, will put a smile on your face when you pick them out. Overall it's one of my favorite Star Wars fanfics and as a person who loves the series and the Expanded Universe novels, I highly recommend this story. However the ending I will note is very open ended. The author has stated that she plans to do a sequel which would serve as a part 2 of a planned trilogy. I spoken with her on private messaging and she states that she hopefully plans to publish the sequel sometimes early 2014 when she's finished writing half of it. I for one simply can not wait for it.
