Inverse Dun Moch

Rachi Sitra attempting the Inverse Dun Moch on Namann Cha.

The "Inverse Dun Moch" may sound like a lost entry in the Barbarian Kama Sutra, (highly reccommended reading, BTW,) but it's actually a fancy term for "be nice to a dick." Wait, that still sounds like… let me expound.

Remember when Vader befuddled Luke mid lightsaber frenzy by talking crap about his inept blundering, and "not being worthy to wear the Jedi panties" and all that? That's the Dun Moch. Talking trash. It's just like what we all do when we're playing video games with each other. Distraction and undermining of the verbose varietyc.

The Inverse Dun Moch is to heap sticky praise and warm cuddlefuzzy phrases on your opponent instead. Like Luke did when he convinced Vader that there was still good in him. Get them to trust you, then WHAM! Yank their mask off and watch them choke on the bitter air of your sneaky psychological victory!

I think Kylo Ren may have used this to get Han Solo within impaling distance. Although, I think he legitimatley considered Han's offer to turn away from the dark side...

Awesome!!! :D The Inverse Dun Möch technique. I'd like to see how this works out between those two. Great job on this. :)

Really, reading the your commentary on this piece made my day. So funny I think I peed a little :iconeagerpee:
And here I thought "Dun Moch" was some sort of Irish-Welsh term for Pig Town, or perhaps the Castle of the Boar. ;)

"To be nice to a dick." That would make her a TRUER Jedi then even Yoda.

Cool, the light side equivalent to Dun Moch, lol. My OC's Star Wars version can use either one, he's even more unconventional than Anakin Skywalker, but what made him that way was also the reason he was one of the last to be hunted down by the Empire, either by Vader himself, Starkiller, Mara Jade if he lived longer, or another way depending on which version of the end of his story I use.
