    [face_laugh] [face_batting] The part about silence and duct tape - too fun! And about normalness - being just a thing they put on appliances. :mischief:

    »» C-3PO has been asked by the Princess to go to Captain Solo and inquire whether he has any information concerning Master Luke's whereabouts. She was complaining that the Captain has not been returning her comms - These two are strange sentients, when they are not pair up, they continuously seek each other out; when they are paired up, they bicker incessantly until parted. Completely illogical!

    Love is something completely illogical! :D

    Anyway, great update!

    *wanders into thread* Hi. :) (And can I just say that I'm glad the move is mostly over?)

    Oops! Busted. – Been caught by Master Luke and ill-humored C-3PO – Oh, I was so close!- Must find way to complete mission.

    Don't worry, little guy. One way to complete the mission is about to fall on... Luke's head.

    »» Strange being positively identified as General Kenobi. Almost positive he recognized me - YAY! – but has not acknowledged me by denomination. He has made assurances that Master Luke will be alright - Gee, General Kenobi looks old and has increased greatly his waist perimeter.

    Love, love the commentary about the changes for Kenobi-in-Exile.

    Master Luke has changed his mind and he is now coming with us. He says he wants to become a Jedi like his father. I hope he becomes a BETTER Jedi than his father.

    Here, here!!!!

    RUN SYSTEMS CHECK » ALL SYSTEMS OPERATIONAL » RECOVER LAST LOG ENTRY » ENTRY RECOVERED - final 3.2 seconds of entry were unable to be retrieved.

    As they involved Artoo being fried, I'm not really all that surprised... but YAY!!!! He has his memory!!!!

    My oil bath and final polishing job took a little longer than anticipated, so I arrived at the ceremony, as sentients would call it, fashionably late.

    Reflecting the camera, everybody on the stage, and the tealady... no, wait. That was Threepio! Oops... moving on...

    Fortunately I was just in time to watch Master Luke and Captain Solo receive their medals from the Princess. It is what sentients call a momentous occasion. Oh, my babies look so nice and so happy. – EMIT EMOTIVE SIGH. - Hey, did Captain Solo just give my little girl a wink? What's up with that?

    Hee.

    ...and then there's Hoth, which is off the beaten path, but also dangerous to your health if you're considered the meal for something large...

    Still loving the diary, Hazel. :)

    A solid update to start ESB. :)

    Poor Artoo... Hoth must be doing a number on his circuits.

    Priceless scenes coming up. I can't wait.

    @Jedi_Lover - Actually, Artoo was there, I doubled-checked. So we get his reaction first-hand. ;)

    @Jade_eyes - Thanks! :*

    @Book-Geek - Artoo is very observant. ;)

    @Lady_Misty - I guess some couples just have wayyyy tooo much chemistry. :p

    @AzureAngel2 - Thank you! :)

    @DaenaBenjen42 - Daena, HI! [:D] Thanks for stopping by. I'm tagging you now, but let me know if you want it in the future.

    @earlybird-obi-wan - Yes, he should. Thanks! :)

    @epithree - Thank you! :D More coming up.


    More tags: @Briannakin, @TrakNar


    And now, Luke's recovery (as the DVD calls the scene :p)

    GALACTIC DATE » 38:6:2 GrS
    GALACTIC POSITION » Echo Base - Hoth
    SITUATION » Visiting Master Luke in the medward


    »» STATUS UPDATE: Captain Solo's mission to find Master Luke had a 100% success rate and the next morning he was brought back to Echo Base in an extremely deteriorated condition. Master Luke then underwent reconstructive surgery for wounds sustained during a wampa attack and had to spend the next twenty-six standard hours in a bacta tank and under the careful watch of all his counterparts, myself included, and the designated 2-1B. He has just woken up and is now receiving extra visits by Captain Solo and C-3PO.

    »» We are all extremely relieved to see him recuperating.

    »» Human behavior is so puzzling to my circuits. After commending Master Luke on his appearance, Captain Solo accused the Princess of having found a way to keep him on base longer than he intended and despite her reassurances to the contrary and the fact that her argument was accurate, the Captain still continued to press his case. Their argument escalated with the Princess addressing the Captain as 'laser-brain', which proves just how upset she was. Everybody knows humans do not possess lasers in their brains unless they have cybernetic implants and such implants are outlawed in all civilized worlds. Not that that would make a difference to Captain Solo at all.

    »» I wonder if Captain Solo has had such implant and has confided in the Princess?

    »» Still, the argument continued with the Princess calling out another of the Captain's secrets. He apparently is also a nerfherder, and a stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking one at that. Since the Captain only took offence on the 'scruffy-looking' part, I am assuming that the 'stuck-up, half-witted nerfherder' part is accurate and I am updating his biographic data.

    »» Who knew that Captain Solo had once herded nerfs? I guess he wasn't so good at it or he would not have turned to smuggling.

    »» Oh, wait! I must have missed something because now the Princess has just kissed her brother on the mouth in a way I KNOW is not appropriate between siblings. When she let go, Master Luke had a very Anakin-like expression on his face. The kind of face Anakin used to have after he spent time alone with Mistress Padmé. THIS IS NOT GOOD! If it happens again, I will be forced to take drastic measures.

    »» ANALYZE POSSIBLE MEASURES AND LOGICAL OUTCOMES.

    »» My circuits hurt! Anakin's offspring is proving to be as troublesome as he was.

    Luke's recovery? More like R2's meltdown!

    Han and Chewie are gowing to blackmail Luke ands Leia forever!

    Love it.

    Yeah, Han used to herd nerfs. In fact he had so much fun that he tried herding them all across the galaxy like some space cowboy *end of attempted sarcasm*

    R2 should be worried. Siblings separated at birth tend to sense a connection and mistake it for love.

    Han herding nerfs, sniff! Yeah, the sub context in human language is difficult to grasp for a robotic brain. They do not understand the concept of irony. Well done! That makes me see the entire scene in a totally different light.

    Oh good Artoo was there. I couldn't remember if he was there or not, but I definitely wanted to read his thoughts about "the kiss". :p Nicely done!

    Poor Artoo, having a hard time figuring out human language! I'd be extremely interesting in seeing Han's updated biographic data after Artoo listens in on more of Han's conversations with Leia... :p

    They really call it "Luke's Recovery" on the DVD? It's more than that! And... poor, poor Artoo, missing Leia's scalding look at Han right before she did it!

    Was going to ask for PM's, Hazel, but tagging works too. :)

    Just caught up on all of it. I love R2! Everybody knows he is the one true hero of the entire saga. It's hilarious how the humans around him can freak him out! LOL!! Very funny stuff! :)

    Entry Twelve

    GALACTIC DATE » 38:6:4 GrS
    GALACTIC POSITION » Echo Base - Hoth
    SITUATION » Echo Base under attack by the Empire


    »» STATUS UPDATE: Once again I was proven correct. In my previous entry, I had entered an assumption that the Rebels would remain on Hoth until Vader arrived to extricate them. As soon as I recorded the entry, I was informed that an imperial probe had been discovered near the Base and had been destroyed. High Command immediately assumed that Vader was on his way and ordered evacuation. I have concluded that my earlier report was brought about by a foresight from the Force. – Yes, I am a step closer to becoming the Jedi I always wanted to be. Take that, Anakin!

    »» Vader's here! Vader's here! Vader's here! Alarm!!! Alarm!!! Alarm!!! Move that behind, Anakin-Junior, we gotta go.

    »» Hey, where is that bleeping kid?

    »» I have been informed that Anakin-Junior is taking part in the ground defense. – Reckless, I tell you. He's reckless! Just like his father. – In the meantime, I'll just go ahead and prep the X-wing, since there is a 99,9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999% probability that we will have to get out of here in a hurry.

    »» Yes, Threepio. Of course I'll take good care of Master Luke. It is my lot in life.

    »» STARTING PRE-FLIGHT SEQUENCE.

    »» I am currently waiting on Anakin-Junior. Waiting... and waiting... and waiting... BLEEPING KID. Hurry up! ... Please be safe.

    »» FINALLY!!! We have to go NOW!

    »» After a hectic departure from Hoth, we have succeeded in escaping the imperial forces. If I had lungs I would have released my held breath at this point.

    »» PLOTTING COURSE FOR RENDEZVOUS POINT.

    »» Wait, we are not going to the rendezvous point? Is something wrong? Where are we going? Are we not regrouping?

    »» Master Luke has just informed me that we are heading to the Dagobah system. It appears that we have traded off an ice-bucket for a mud-bucket. I'm not sure if the trade will be advantageous to my circuits.

    »» NEXT DESTINY » Dagobah.

    Just found this. This is absolutely hilarious! Put me on the tag/PM list, please. :D (I should note that others in the RPF have reported that there is a limit of ten tags per post, so to add me you may have to switch from tags back to PMs).

    For some reason I didn't get an alert for the tag.

    But it's okay, because I know what comes next and I'm rubbing my hands with delight!!

    Thanks for the warning, I´ll look into it.


    Weird, but sometimes I don't get alerts too. [face_thinking] Maybe I should consider PMs again.
