solo_sword: (humble moment)
The last time Jag had texted for Jaina, she'd been in the hospital after the worst day of her life.

This time, the setting was similar, but the reasons were very different.

Once everything had settled down and Jag had finally kicked everybody out to let the family spend some time alone, Jaina asked him to get a picture of the twins and send out a message to those who'd want to know. She'd have done it herself, but she'd done enough today, thank you.

So along with a picture of two little, wrinkly baby boys, they'd get the message, Meet Dax and Daniel. They and Jaina are doing well.

"You couldn't have spiced that up a little?" Jaina asked when she saw what he'd sent.

"And how would you have wanted me to do that?" Jag asked.

"Tell them that if they say my babies look like Yoda I'll end them as soon as I can feel my legs again."

"Ah. You should lead with that next time."

Jaina had had a while now to actually start picking up on this whole empress thing, so she was glad to have a break for something more normal. Also, she was maybe a little self-conscious (this was rare) because no one from Fandom had actually seen her since everything had happened, and she remembered how different Tenel Ka had seemed after being put in a similar position. As far as Jaina was aware the only thing different about her was that she actually looked pregnant these days, but still. She wondered.

And anyway, she still went out to meet Tahiri when she heard she was here, since she figured no one should have to show up and get greeted by a team of Imperials.

[For Tahiri yay!]

Jaina had an office now, which was probably a good thing when she was still cranky about yesterday and wasn't much fun to be around. Besides, being stuck out here in a mostly strange place where she cranky didn't know enough about how everything worked meant that she had a lot to research, especially if she was going to be in charge of it. It was interesting, too, even beyond seeing how they told history as opposed how she had always learned it.

She shouldn't have had the news on in the background, though, because as soon as she heard her name mentioned she got irritated all over again. She didn't like being cooped up till the bodyguard thing was settled, she still hated the bodyguard thing anyway, she wasn't happy that There's had to be a conversation about whether or not it was safer to announce the pregnancy sooner rather than later because she didn't want to have to make a public announcement.

So when everything these days felt out of control for her, Jaina decided to do the one thing she did have control over, by picking up her phone and sending a text.

1. I'm gonna be a mom
2. I'm an empress now
3. How are you?


Eh, they'd only really been waiting to tell their families first anyway.

[I have a quiet day of work so I'm posting. Open for replies, if you think you got it, you did!]

Jaina was currently in the middle of a battle of wills with someone who wasn't even paying attention to her.

When she'd last been on Bastion, Jag had still been getting settled in the job and amassing personnel that he trusted. She'd known he'd gotten an assistant, a blue-skinned Chiss male who went by Ashik, and she'd had messages passed through him when Jag was unable to talk himself. This was her first time meeting him, though.

Jaina had come out here to spend a few days with her family and a few with Jag, which had turned into her accompanying him on a semi-official Jedi basis to Hapes tomorrow while he dealt with some problems. So they'd agreed to make tonight date night, but he'd had to push that back due to work. Jaina didn't mind- and by the way, if anyone needed proof of how much she'd changed through the years, she was now dating a man with the same job her mother had had, albeit for a different government, and she didn't throw fits over it anymore- and after it'd gotten pushed back a second time, she came to the office to surprise him. And Ashik had insisted that Jag was not to be disturbed.

Jaina wasn't very good at being told she couldn't do something. She was a Solo; if someone told you no, you just found a different way to to get things done. So she'd tried talking her way in to the office. She'd tried arguing. She'd tried just walking in there and bribery and all-out threats, and Ashik had just calmly told her that he could let Head of State Fel know that she was waiting for him.

This was why Jaina had been sitting in the waiting room outside Jag's office for the last hour and a half now, unsure of whether this lesson she was receiving was Ashik's or Jag's doing. She wasn't even playing with her phone to pass the time, she was just sitting and waiting and glaring, and Ashik never gave any indication that he even realized she was in the room unless she got up, and then she swore he was preparing himself to call security again.

She'd wait him out. She'd win this one.


[Can be open for calls or what not, because sometimes Jaina is insane.]

It was amazing how much better Jaina felt having actually made a solid decision on what her next step was. Which wasn't to say she felt great or anything, but baby steps. While she was alone at the moment she'd set to booking a portal and trying to make any necessary arrangements, which felt wrong considering she was used to making spur of the moment possibly-bad decisions and going with them. Preparation was new.

And then once she'd done that- and decided she'd had enough of the HoloNet for one day- she picked up her phone and sent a text because people were going to have to be her entertainment now.

Greetings from the Empire! (Nope, that doesnt get less weird.)


[Open for replies and calls, as last week being my busiest week in a year means this week is my slowest.]
