    Notes: Written for the 2012 Dear Diary Challenge. Updates will be up every other Sunday.
    Some might recognize the title, it is recycled from a viggie I wrote over a year ago and posted on the Beyond Board.
    Also, the dates presented are the product of researching Wookieepedia and, when the information is not available, my own estimations.


    Big thanks to Jade_eyes for betaing. [:D] :*





    Entry One


    ENTRY » START NEW

    GALACTIC DATE » 35:3:3 GrS
    GALACTIC POSITION » CR90 Corvette Tantive IV; Tatoo System, Tatooine's orbit
    SITUATION » Under attack by the Empire


    »» Been ordered to report to Princess - a.k.a. She-Who-Must-Not-Know-Of-Her-True-Origins - and now having a hard time pinpointing her in the middle of ongoing battle. If only she would just stay in one place or consent to being tagged with a locator device - yes that would be best, then I would be more efficient in watching over her.

    »» Managed to miss being hit by 9.4 blasterbolts while crossing a hallway in search for Princess and being followed by C-3PO - Maybe one of the bolts should hit him and make him shut up already. If he says we're doomed one more time...

    »» Ooh, looky. It's Ani. He looks taller. I wonder if he'll recognize me. Hmm, best not find out.

    »» Found Princess - MISSION STATUS - COMPLETED » DO LITTLE HAPPY DANCE.

    »» Been entrusted with secret Death Star plans. » ENTER NEW MISSION PARAMETERS » TOP SECRET - MAXIMUM PRIORITY - deliver plans to General Kenobi A.S.A.P. How fortunate that we're orbiting his base's planet.

    »» Advise Princess to stay away from Lord Vader a.k.a. He-Who-Must-Never-Be-Named-As-Anakin Skywalker-To-His-Children. Don't think she understood me. NOTE TO SELF » Get voice synthesizer.

    »» Must locate working escape pod. Consider ditching C-3PO - No, I can't do it - he's a drag, but he's my drag.

    »» Escape Pod located - TASK STATUS - COMPLETED.

    »» Get in here you mindless philosopher! And shut up already.

    »» Successfully detached pod from Tantive IV - Hey, I'm good! Gee, I hope they don't use us as target practice.

    Smart droid!

    No, I can't do it - he's a drag, but he's my drag.
