Within a month, the sheer threat of the Grex is enough to make all the human nations co-operate. [[HopelessWar It's still not enough.]]

** ''TheThrawnTrilogy'': Mara Jade sees her having to constantly work with Luke as this trope, especially with that [[KillMeNowOrForeverStayYourHand not-so-covert wish to kill him]]. He doesn't see it the same way, though. At the end of the trilogy, they've become FireForgedFriends, and by the ''Literature/NewJediOrder'' series, they're a married BattleCouple.
