The Clone Wars: Battlefield Christophsis
The Clone Wars have begun, not two months have passed since the opening battle of the war on Geonosis and the planets of the Galactic Republic are under grave threat from the Confederacy of Independent Systems and their Droid Army. The Separatists control many of the hyperspace lanes that link the Republic together, effectively isolating member planets across the Republic and leaving them all but defenseless.
One such planet is the rich world of Christophsis. This planet is not only a major economic hub for the Republic, but it is one of the few planets which has allowed refugee camps upon its surface. Senator Bail Organa of Alderaan has been a major sponsor of these camps and was touring the planet when the Confederacy struck.
With only limited defensive forces, Christophsis was no match for the might of the Droid Army which quickly swept across the planet and conquered it save for a few scattered hold outs. Desperate both to secure t

Lord Vader sat on his Imperial throne as he waited for another messenger to come before him and give reports relating to the Galactic Empire's latest activities. He wore a black military uniform with a sleeveless robe, both fastened tightly with the uniform's belt. On that belt he had the Lightsaber of Anakin Skywalker on his right side, and his own Sith Lightsaber on his left. He wore a black cape over his shoulders and draped over his back. The cape was fastened by a chain link that rested on his chest. Vader's cybernetic right arm was still covered by the black battle glove he wore during the Clone Wars.
The double doors on the opposite end of his throne room opened. Although he was expecting another messenger, the young man walking towards him didn't surprise him in the least. This man was about 20 years in age, had his hair trimmed to his scalp, and medium facial features. He wore dark robes and a hooded cape, had gloved
Ahsoka's Dream Part 1Run. Just keep running and they can't catch you. But how long can one person run without stumbling. She thought to herself. But who was she running from? The scene changes, darkness all around her. Only the sound is that of a heartbeat. She saw a body just laying there in someone's arms. Who is that? She kept thinking as I got closer. This when I realized it was Rex who was holding the body. Gently tracing the face with his fingers. Then looking over his shoulder she saw who he was holding.

Her own scream had woken her up, along with everyone else. Rex comes running into my room with pistols out and ready to shoot.
"Commander Ahsoka, are you alright?" Rex said worriedly, hiding it behind his helmet.
"I'm fine Captain, just a nightmare. Nothing to worry about, I promise." She said hoping he would drop the matter. Of course, he did not.
"That's the third time this week, Commander. Is something bothering you or do you just like to scare us all?"

The 501st legion was one of the best legions in the Repubilc and now it had turned into Vader's personal stormtrooper unit. Captain Rex and the 501st landed on Coruscant finally carring out Order 66; the extermination of all the Jedi who were believed to have rebelled against the Republic. The way the events turned out was nothing but the shooting of blasters and the cries of pain right before the silence of death. On the way to Coruscant, every clone in the ship was quiet. Did they want to kill the Jedi who throughout the whole war against the Seperatists had shown care and eternal loyalty to them? Should they have done something? Did they have doubts? Any thoughts about what they were about to do? Of course there were some who felt this way, in paticular, Rex, who felt he was doing injustice and literally stabbing them in the back. Even so, not a single word was said in the ship, on Coruscant or even when they came marching into t

Felucia- 1 month before order 66
Ahsoka stared out from the gunship as it whizzed past the exotic landscape of Felucia. It was a pretty, but dangerous planet. Anakin stood off to her left, intently discussing the upcoming battle with his clone captain. Rex's helmet bobbed up and down slightly as he talked with Anakin.
Ahsoka almost wished that they didn't have to come back to this planet. Her last mission here didn't go very well. But that had been nearly two years ago. Ahsoka was sixteen and well along her way in her Jedi training.
"Ahsoka." Anakin's voice snapped the young Jedi out of her thoughts.
She turned. "Yes Master?"
"You and your team are going to be the first on the ground." Anakin said. "You're getting dropped off one klick away from the outpost that you'll be staying at. You will be the second line of defense for us to fall back on if things get bad for my team."
"Some of General Secura's men will be at the base already." Rex added.

Star Wars: FuturesThe Imperial Customs agent had seen many odd things in her day, from Wookiees in slave cages singing defiant hymns in guttural roaring fashion to Hapans draped in jewelry and illegal weaponry parading about decks, with any number of forms of contraband and substances between. She'd seen as many odd characters, alien and human alike. She was a hardened veteran and nothing surprised her anymore.Star Wars: Futures3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
She dropped her datapad in bewildered surprise, looking around the ship she'd boarded, and whirled around in a circle. "Stormtrooper, is there some form of hallucinogenic gas being pumped into this chamber?"
The sergeant of the four man squad behind her snapped a salute on being faced, voice crackling and hissing through the skull white helmet. "M'am, no m'am."
The Navy troopers tended to be more human about their responses- and appearances- but while it was customary for Customs to be accompanied by Naval personnel, she had requested the assistance of troops less likely to succumb to trickery

Chapter 1 - Felucia
High above the forest floor with its covering of blue mosses and pink fungi, Maris crouched amongst the upper limbs of one of the jungle's mightiest trees and reached out to pluck one of its soft-skinned round fruits from a nearby branch. She twisted it to break it free and then sank her teeth into its moist scarlet flesh. She chewed slowly, savouring its delicate flavour as she looked out over the forest canopy. The sun was setting over the vast jungle of Felucia and its dying light poured across the endless sea of plants and trees. Pink juices dripped from Maris' lips and fingers as she admired the kaleidoscopic range of colours that danced across the canopy. For someone who had never seen it before, it would have been a truly breathtaking sight.
This wasn't Maris' first experience of a Felucian sunset. During her time on this world she had seen hundreds, perhaps thousands. She had spent much of her young life on Felu

The conversation replayed in her head hundreds of times. Each line echoed in her montrals as if they were spoken from all around her. 'This is something I need to do on my own; without the Council and without you.'
'I trusted you! I stood by you!'
Ahsoka Tano never doubted that she did the right thing by walking away from the Jedi Order, but she couldn't stop thinking about everything she was leaving behind. She walked for hours contemplating every detail. It wasn't before too long that she realized how much of an impulsive decision she had made. Yes, she did the right thing, but she did so with no plans for the future. She didn't even know where to sleep. All she had was a few credits in the pouch on her belt. She had enough to probably get a cheap room for the night, but then what?
She had to trust in the Force to guide her. Ahsoka knew this journey wouldn't be an easy one. Before turning down one of the many crowded city walkways of Coruscant, Ahsoka turned to take

-Coruscant, near the Jedi Temple-
Asajj was gaining a new appreciation for all the different ways a sewer could reek. The night before she hadn’t gone more than a few meters inside, and had been too angry at Tano for collecting strays to even notice it. Now the Jedi dropout had been leading her through the fetid damp tunnel - which was so dark she couldn’t see more than two meters ahead - for ages, and if they didn’t get into the Temple soon she might start seriously considering the abandonment plan. But just as that thought hit her, Ahsoka stopped abruptly next to what looked like a maintenance access.
“Through here,” she explained before Asajj could ask. Asajj followed her over to it, but Tano hesitated, her hand hovering next to the door release.
“What are you waiting for?” Asajj said.

The archives were in a better state than Ahsoka had expected. There was the same blaster scarring and shattered rubble that filled the rest of the Temple, but most of the holobooks were intact. Parts of it were so well preserved that she almost expected to run into Jocasta Nu updating a database, or a bored Initiate on guard duty taking a quick nap when they thought nobody was looking.
The only Jedi she did find were dead, of course. She came across eight that she was barely acquainted with, and judging from how they had fallen they must have been attempting to destroy the archives rather than let them fall into the hands of the Sith. Unfortunately, they had failed…or maybe it was fortunate, Ahsoka thought. She was beginning to form an idea, but filed it away for after they had reset the beacon. She had to keep track of which row she was in, the last thing she wanted was to get lost

It took longer than Asajj had expected for them to find another body that wasn't a clone. Apparently most of the Jedi had been away from their home when it was destroyed. Ahsoka was kneeling over the Jedi in question, who looked rather a lot like the maintenance worker they'd found in the hangar: light blue skin with yellow facial markings and close-cropped dark hair with a Padawan's braid on one side. Asajj guessed that he was about the same age as Ahsoka.
"His name was Tatsu Li," Ahsoka said. "He was in the same youngling clan as me, we used to study together..."
I don't need his life story, Asajj thought. We don't have time for this. But for some reason she kept quiet and watched Ahsoka close the boy's vacant eyes. Tano looked like she was about to stand up, but she seemed to change her mind at the last second. Instead she reached over and pried the lightsaber o

The Jedi dove out of the chair as he fired, the blaster bolts flashing over her head and causing the terminal to explode in a shower of sparks. She rolled once and sprung to her feet while drawing a green-bladed lightsaber. A flash of confused recognition went through the back of the Clone's mind, but his instinct beat it back down. Good soldiers followed orders. He backed away and crouched behind some rubble, pelting the Togruta with shot after shot, and signaled for the rest of his squad to open fire. Just as he'd planned, she was caught in a crossfire - even a Jedi couldn't fight that.
Or so he had thought. A bolt skimmed across her right thigh, prompting a hiss of pain, but as she reached her free hand out a silver blur shot out of a bag lying on the floor. As it landed in her hand a snap-hiss was almost drowned out by the whine of a dozen deecee fifteens. Now armed with two sabers
Bump In The NightCarth had put up with enough.Bump In The Night6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
After enduring Mission Vao's many, varied, and concerted efforts to make his life on the Ebon Hawk completely miserable, he'd finally snapped. No more would he suffer this sadistic torture.
It had all started on Dantooine, with the short-sheeting of his bunk. He'd let that incident slide; Mission had been gloomy and withdrawn for almost an entire week because of the destruction of Taris, and at the time the prank had seemed like a return to her impish, irrepressible self. He was soon to learn that short-sheeting was merely a prelude to her virtuosic symphony of mischief.
On Tatooine it had been a few grains of second-rate glitterstim in his water canteen. Without light to activate it, Carth escaped the full effects, but the sodden taste that lingered in his mouth couldn't have been worse if he'd spent the day licking biohazardous waste from the underside of a medical droid. Coupled with that was the half-hearted but profoundly haunting telepathic suggestio

Carth resisted the urge to wince at the brusque acknowledgment. He'd entered the security room soundlessly, but apparently Dyran's neophyte Jedi perception had been recently honed to fine precision. Bastila's tutelage had benefited Dyran on everything from Force telekinesis to - apparently - the fine art of elevating one's nose in lofty disgust.
He was convinced that the Jedi had been studiously avoiding him for the better part of a week. Of course, since Carth was busy avoiding him right back, it was impossible to be sure. Ever since Carth had unwittingly walked in on Dyran and Juhani engaging in what was undoubtedly a grievous violation of the Jedi Code, the atmosphere on the Ebon Hawk had become distinctly strained.
Carth's current priority, however, was avoiding a direct apology to Juhani. Her embarrassed fury hadn't abated at all. It hadn't exactly helped matters when she had woken to a 'fresher full of baby gizka, the fallout from Mission's most legenda

Ahsoka’s declaration snapped the others out of their stupor, and they all turned to looked at her like she had grown a fourth lekku.
Shaak Ti was the first to find her words. “Ahsoka, what Barriss did was-”
“Horrible, yes, I know,” Ahsoka cut her off. “I know that better than anyone. But she was right, she saw this was happening!” Ahsoka stood up and began pacing agitatedly. “Do you remember what she said when she confessed, Master? I remember every word, I couldn’t forget it if I tried.”
Which I have.
“An army fighting for the Dark Side, fallen from the light we once held so dear,” Ahsoka quoted. Where Barriss had shouted indignantly, Ahsoka said the words flatly, trying to detach them from the pain they represented. It worked poorly. “This Republic is failing. It’s only a matter of time.” She looked up at Shaak, holding back tear

Holding up the sartorial confection in examination, he couldn't help but notice the barely-there spaghetti straps, the shimmer of the translucent yellow chiffon, and the suggestively placed insets of pale coral lace. It was also damp, smelling faintly of lilac laundry detergent.
The negligee wasn't the only freshly washed clothing on display. The whole ship was draped in clotheslines pegged with an array of every conceivable article of clothing. The Ebon Hawk's designers, curse their inbred existence, had bestowed upon the ship a washing machine but no dryer. Space was tight enough without one. Carth had always thought having a 'fresher made up for it, but today he was not feeling especially grateful.

“This is Barriss Offee, can anyone hear me?” Static was the only reply from the comm unit. Barriss could see the medical station rapidly growing larger through the frost-covered viewport. It was so cold she could barely operate the controls. “I’m shutting down the engines, I’ll try to reroute the-” Barriss sensed danger and dove out of the pilot chair as a searing green light arced through the space her head had been, slicing through the control panel instead.
As alarms began blaring in the bridge, Barriss spun around and ignited her lightsaber just in time to block her assailant’s next attack. Ahsoka Tano stood before her, blank eyed and covered in frost, a savage scowl on her face. Barriss easily parried her possessed friend’s attacks, the creature controlling her had none of the young Jedi’s skill, wielding the lightsaber like a cl
