"Our time has come. For three hundred years, we prepared. We grew stronger while you rested in your cradle of power, believing your people were safe and protected. You were trusted to lead the Republic but you were deceived, as our powers of the dark side have blinded you. You assumed no force could challenge you and now finally, we have returned. You were deceived. And now your Republic shall fall."
"Following the Jedi Civil War, three-hundred years ago, the Council took it upon themselves to see that all remaining traces of the Sith were properly dealt with. Times were dire.

Delta Squad remained in the weapons training room even after the others had left, uncomfortable with waiting while there was a mystery waiting to be solved on "Planet StarChild". It was named "StarChild" after it appearing out of no where two months ago. No known inhabitants, parents, environment all seemed native to those who saw it. Out of curiosity (and precaution), the Delta squad was to be sent as an investigation team to gain information on this "unknown rock"... But for now, the team was to wait as instructed by Gabe (a male scientist who assisted in the making of the clones) while he brought out "Their new team member".
Sev (RC-1207) used this wasted time of waiting to his advantage by attacking holographic droids. Scorch (RC-1162) and Fixer (RC-1140) sat on near by crates while the Delta Squad team leader, Boss or 38(RC-1138) paced anxiously.

The Last Trial
She was sitting by the doorway of an apparently deserted building. The rain had stopped, and she was glad it did. Now the sun was setting and the narrow streets of the ghost city were getting darker by the minute. She looked up, the candy bar she was munching on sticking out of her mouth. The clouds were slowly disappearing, as if the heavy rain she had suffered since the day before was merely a bad memory.
As she felt a familiar presence approaching the planet, she got up, grabbed her dirty robe and started to walk in the streets again. I would be a dozen of minutes before he arrived, she should be able to meet with him then. She brushed her blond hair with her hand. She was tired and longing for a good bath, but knowing him, she wouldnt be allowed such luxury before a while.

Sirius Black sat by himself on a bench in the courtyard. He was sitting hunched over, twiddling his wand with his fingers. His book bag sat at his feet, contents spilling on the stone floor as he waited. What in Merlin's name was taking James so long?
There weren't many other people in the courtyard. Sirius found himself exceptionally bored, but James had asked him to wait there. Sirius let out a loud sigh.
He watched as Severus Snape passed through the yard, hunched over and tightly hugging his books. He walked at an awkwardly fast pace, his eyes toward the ground.
Sirius found himself annoyed at the sight of him. Why did he have to walk like that? And his books- who carried their books like that? How it irritated him so. He just wanted to smack him right in that great giant nose of his. As Snape walked by him, Sirius gave a flick of his wand, and Snape tripped and fell to the ground.
Sirius let out a loud bark of laughter. "All right, Snivelly? Better watch where you're going next ti

It was an odd place. Deep within the recesses of the temple, it waited. A light that should not have been gave depth and definition to pillars and paths. A soft blue glow, seeming to stem from the very air itself, filled the place, shimmering and sliding across the walls. Liquid light. Ephemeral. A calm filled the place, though darkness loomed in every corner. Threatening. Wanting. But the light remained. For without light, there can never be shadow.
Something stirred in the darkness. A flash of gold, of blue, or raven black. Out of the darkness a being came. Nameless, it came forth, the light seeming to bend towards it, settling on the blue gems adorning a copper crown. A hiss of water over flesh, the soft ring as droplets fell echoed in the blue-lit chamber. The one from the darkness stood from the waters

GLaDOS had only been marginally paying attention to the occupant of the relaxation vault, her concentration having been delegated to other areas such as upkeep of the facility and herding the AIs, and he had looked normal enough in his sleek sleep-coffin. Now, however, the sole camera in the room was desperately trained on him, trying to track down data that apparently didn't exist.

I jump upon hearing that sexy drawl, alone as I am in my room. My man is frequently out of town on business, and my kids go to bed early, so I'm up by myself, working on a drawing.
Looking up from the glowing screen of my laptop, and over my left shoulder, I see him here, legs stretched out across my bed, his upper body propped against the ornately carved wood of my headboard. I can't help but sigh at the sight of his scuffed black boots up on my white comforter.

He was never sure how she had pushed her way into his life, but he never regretted it. Even after the other nations warned him of the consequences, he never listened. They all warned Japan about how it would feel after she died.
"It will feel like someone shoved their hands into the center of your heart and ripped it in two."
"It's like someone bashed your brains out on the pavement."
"It hurts, like the last light in your life suddenly went out and will never be relit."
But for whatever reason, he never listened. Maybe he was just stubborn. Maybe he was just in denial. It wasn't really sure. He never thought about what would happen in the future. Death wasn't a possibility in his mind. He forgot about the differences of mortality and immortality.

After she finished cleaning up the remainder of the mess, she placed the broken pieces into an envelope, slipping it into her coat pocket.

For a few moments, all they could do was stand in shock and awe. The endless snow fell quietly around them, covering the wreckage in a blanket of cold white. Parts and pieces of the Normandy were scattered everywhere, varying in size and damage. Nobody spoke. Shepard glanced over at the former Alliance doctor before turning and heading away from them.

Before Episode One.
Catching up from where Five left off,
Return of the Jedi.
It won't be easy as they'll find.
They go to rescue Han.
R2 and C3P0 make first contact
And it goes really bad.
End up scared out of their wits.
Chewie is next to show up,
Captured by a bounty hunter.
But the bounty hunter's fake.
It's actually Princess Leia,
She frees Han and gets captured.
Jabba The Hutt takes to her,
She'll be enslaved like Oola was,
But she'll try and hang around.
Luke finally decides to show.
Calls himself a Jedi knight,
But like a fool he's down the pit.
He meets the Rancor with a pig.
Nearly gets kills by it,
But turns things around.
Lando in his good disguise,
Watches as Luke and Han,
Are sentenced to their deaths.
Leia in a gold bikini.
Lucky Han doesn't have his sight,
He would be surprised!
On the barge and to the pit.
Sentenced to be fed to the Sarlacc.

That's a tough question. But here's a few reasons.
- Because at 4 years old, with a broken leg, sitting in a wheel chair in the middle of the aisle, with no one in front of me, I watched Return of the Jedi and was absolutely in awe, forming my 2nd earliest clear memory (second only to breaking my leg)
- Because squads of guys in white armor look really cool.
- Because The Millenium Falcon could outrace the Enterprise anyday.
- Because a farm boy from a desert planet can save the universe.
- Because I still have the same toys I had as a kid, and I wouldn't sell any of them.
- Because when I was a kid, my older brother got me hooked on it. And to some point, it still represents our relationship.
- Because 16 years before Titanic made a thousand 13 year old girls cry, Empire taught us that love is worth getting frozen over. and Harrison's so much cooler.
- Because my nephew's think it's cool.
