Jag's Experiment - Ylesia by ifihadacoconut Jag's Experiment - Ylesia by ifihadacoconut
So, I just bought Dark Nest I: The Joiner King, which came with the bonus book, Ylesia printed in the back. I never did get to read the e book version while I was reading the NJO series, so I jumped into reading it last night. There was a hillarious part near the middle with Jacen/Jaina/Jag, and I sketched it last night in my brand new paper journal (Yes, me with a paper journal... lol) So here's the excerpt:

"What's with you and Kyp Durron? I sensed something a little odd there."
Jaina felt herself flush. "Kyp's been feeling a little... sentimental... toward me lately."
Jacen looked at her in solemn surprise. It was that solemnity, Jaina decided, that she disliked most about him.
"He's a little old for you, don't you think?" Jacen asked. Solemnly.
Jaina tried to throttle her annoyance at this line of questioning. "I'm grateful to Kyp for helping me come back from the dark side," she said. "But with me, it's gratitude. With Kyp..." She hesitated. "I'd rather not go into it. Anywah, it's over now."
Jacen nodded. Solemnly. Jaina came to her cabin door and put her hand on the latch.
"Good," Jacen said. "Because you've been conquering a bewildering number of hearts while I was away. First Baron Fel's son, and now the most unpredictable Jedi in the order..."
Supremely irritated, Jaina opened the cabin door, stepped inside, and in the darkness of the cabin was seized by a pair of arms. Pressure was applied in an expert way to her elbow joints, and she was whirled around. A familiar scent, a spicy aroma from the Unknown Regions, filled her sense, and a hungry mouth descended on hers.
A moment later - and the length of that moment was something she would not forgive herself - it occurred to her to resist. Her arms were securely pinned, so she summoned the Force and flung her assailant across the room. There was a crash, and some items tumbled off a shelf. Jaina took a step to the door and waved on the lights.
Jagged Fel lay sprawled across her bed. He touched the back of his head gingerly.
"Couldn't you just have slapped me?" he asked.
"What are you doing here?"
"Conducting an experiment."
"A what?" Furious.
His brilliant blue eyes rose to meet hers. "I detected a degree of ambiguity in your last few messages," he said. "I could no longer tell what your feelings toward me might be, so I thought an experiment was in order. I decided to place you in a situation that wasn't the least bit ambiguous, and see how you reacted." An insufferable smiile touched the corners of his mouth. "And the experiment was a success."
"Right. You got thrown into the wall."
"But before you remembered to be outraged, there was a moment that was worth all the pain." His eyes turned to the door. "Hello there, galactic hero. Your mother told me you'd escaped."
"She mentioned she'd met you." Jacen, in the doorway, turned his owlish expression to Jaina. "Sis, do you need rescuing?"
"Get out of here," Jaina said.

Oh no, you still can't get it?! That's not cool. I'm actually not digging it too much, lol. I like NJO a LOT more! :) Thanks for commenting! :)

what did you use to color, because it seems a bit un-smooth.

It's colored pencil, but it's on a weird paper...
