Profile Picture

If you haven't noticed(and I really hope you have), I have Mara Jade for my profile picture.

Why? She's awesome.
Now, I'm not a huge Mara Jade fan, more of a Jaina Solo fan. But most Jaina Solo pictures really suck. How can Mara look prettier at 75 than Jaina at 31?
Mara at 75:

See? Awesomeness.

 Jaina at 31:

Well, to be fair, this is in "sepia" or whatever you call it. And artists' renditions of Jaina have so far edged on the less-than consistent side.

 This is Jaina:

This is Jaina....


This(???????) is Jaina:

 Or Tahiri with a hair job. Or Zekk. Heck, it could even be a Yuuzhan Vong.

Anyways, the point is, I feel like changing my profile pic. It'll most likely be another Mara...what do you think?
These are the ones I have done before.


The first picture is possibly my favorite Star Wars picture of all time.  

So what'll it be? And what is your criteria for your profile pic? Whatever you pick, remember it's your face to the world. 
These are the ones I'm considering.

Super cool, but kind of violent. And inaccurate. No one wears that many necklaces. And I always have to remember that my family, or maybe future boss(or husband????) might read this. This is for the world to see, baby. I don't want to project the wrong image, ya know?
And the artists are more accurate than Jaina, although maybe not much. At least they preserve the general hair color.
I love the one from the prelim Choices of One cover, though.
How about a straight, plain:
 Kinda weird...she's looking at you.
 Or should I just keep mine? I like it. Or should I do a Jaina? Purple-pink Jaina or blue Jaina?

Vote on the poll.



  1. I like the one you already have of Mara or the very last picture of Mara the best.

  2. I agree with Leia. I never really thought about it as your "face to the world" though. Funny, because now that I think about it, I do see my "internet friends" as their profile pics.

  3. How 'bout these?

    I always thought that that last one was the perfect Mara pic. She's wearing the clothes she typically wore as the Emperor's Hand and she's got the purple/pink lightsaber. It's just way too cool, and almost looks like it's coming straight out of one of the movies.

    Here's some cool Jaina pics.

    Wow, that was a lot of pictures...

    Oh and as far as the ones that you already mentioned, I think the best ones are blue Jaina, pink Jaina or the one that has the forest as Mara's background.

  4. Those pictures are really cool; I've been browsing to the ends of the earth for good Jaina/Mara pictures. But most of those, except that YJK one, aren't really serviceable as profile pictures?
    I forgot how cute Jaina looks in the YJK, like she's five years old or something. She's got that adorable Solo button nose! I can't wait to see an official picture of Allana!...but I digress.

  5. Hm, I'm not sure. Either the blue Jaina or the one you already have. But I'm not completely sure. And come to think of it, you're completely right about your profile pic being "your face to the world".

Amaranthine <3's you. Thanks for the comment!
