My bookshelf suddenly seems a lot less interesting, because of the contents not being part of official Star Wars Canon any more. “There must be a way for these works to have a more jusified reason for existence” I thought by myself. The idea that the existing stories aren’t dumped, but instead labelled as “Legends” inspired me. A few ideas to retcon the already published stories sprang to mind. The first one can be read here. And below is the second one.
