    He's good but not that good. I love Artoo's sense of humor!

    Of course, Artoo would be able to separate reality from illusion... If only the Dark Side could actually work on Artoo - that would be an interesting situation! Poor droid, definitely not made to be a Jedi... :p

    Lol. That scene is confusing for anyone, let alone a droid!

    You know I never really thought about this before. Did Artoo see Obi-Wan's Force ghost? I can't remember. Can they be picked up by cameras or sensors? And who can see Force Ghosts? Does it depend on who the Force ghost wants to see them? Leia didn't appear to see the three Force ghosts at the end of RotJ. I'm so confused. :confused:

    JL: :) @};- Seems like it would relate to training: droids cannot be Force-trained & Leia hadn't been trained even as much as Luke had. [face_thinking] It probably is a volitional thing on the other end too, but the ones who are aware of their presence would have to have some focused Force skill. :D

    According to the Power of the Jedi Sourcebook, anyone who is Force-sensitive can hear Force ghosts, and Force-users with the Sense feat can see them.

    Leia might have seen them out of the corner of her eye but either thought that it was a trick of the light or she just assumed that they were Rebels that were content to watch the celebration for a time.

    So when I had Callista trapped inside Artoo's body in one of my fics, she shouldn't have been able to sense a Force Ghost? :p Stang, what stupid situations I get Luke and Artoo into.

    Sorry Hazel I don't mean to highjack your thread. Your story gets me thinking about all types of weird things since I am now seeing the scene by a droids perspective.

    Don't worry about it @Jedi_Lover, this confuses me a bit too. I remember when I was about to write this part, I asked around for opinions and got a bunch of different ones. I hope the choice I made here is acceptable and makes sense within the story, but who knows, I might make the opposite choice in another story. And don't worry about your Callista in R2 story, it was sooooo funny, nobody really considered that particular detail.

    It is interesting that R2 also knows what happened in the cave. The entire SW universe is interesting seen through R2´s sensors.

    Oh, that's a tricky one indeed! I think I'll go with what Hazel said - the sheer hilarity of the situation makes the question of whether or not it's realistic unimportant. :p

    Lady_Misty: The meaning of that apparition is puzzling. So many interpretations and but still it's puzzling.

    I'm gonna quote Superman here: "The son becomes the father, and the father the son." (The vision was meant to send a message... as for weather or not Luke got it? Hard to say.)

    Good entry, Hazel. :)

    SITUATION » Undergoing Jedi training – part 2


    »» While Master Yoda directed Master Luke in levitation and telekinesis techniques, I detected that Anakin-Junior's X-wing, which had been left where it landed, was now sinking into the swamp. I alerted Master Luke of this fact and he immediately interrupted the training exercise.

    »» I did not need the Force to read Master Luke's dismay. However, true to the Jedi teachings, Master Yoda immediately took the opportunity to turn the event into a lesson. He instructed Master Luke to retrieve the X-wing using the Force in much the same way as in the previous exercise. Master Luke tried to reason with the Grand Master stating that this was a completely different case, but Master Yoda countered the argument. When Anakin-Junior relented and said he would try, Master Yoda stated the words that I shall record now for posterity: "No, try not! Do! Or Do not! There is no try." I have a feeling (yes, droids have feelings too) these words will be engraved in Master Luke's mind for the rest of his life.

    »» Following this statement, Master Luke proceeded to attempt (I will not say try) to retrieve his fighter from the swamp. I'll admit, I was disappointed when he was unsuccessful. When Master Luke had just about given up, Master Yoda stepped in and completed the task himself, making sure to turn it into yet another lesson on the nature of the Force (recording appended to this entry). It was impressive.

    »» And now we have an X-wing to clean and dry out. Oh joy!

    Drying things out are a pain in the neck.

    Brilliant. I agree with ginchy about Artoo refusing to say "try"; I loved that. Keep it up!

    Let Luke clean up the ship Artoo![face_not_talking] He's the one who crashed it. Come to think about it...he crashes a lot of ships. He crashed on Hoth, he crashed on Dagobah and he crashed a Star Destroyer onto Coruscant in Dark Empire. I bet his starship insurance is really, really high. I bet Geico wouldn't even touch him. He probably has to go to one of those "Tickets, Accidents?--No Problem" insurance companies. I bet he dreaded putting Ben on his policy when he started piloting.

    I think I am rambling again.

    Nice update!
