    Lady_Misty - i don't get why the NR didn't wouldn't Leia train, especially people who knew about Jedi Diplomats. Leia could have neen one from the beginning.

    Jade_eyes - I want Ep 7 to be Heir to the Empire too. Dianey wants a trilogy and here is a trilogy - Perfect! :D

    Jedi_lover - Yes he is! Be careful what you wish for...

    Briannakin - Artoo isn't present to watch all the action, but he does have several sources - Threepio, the Falcon, Luke, the ability to slice into the security system and pull the holos, good old-fashioned eavesdropping ... We'll be seeing a lot of examples in this diary. ;)

    jcgoble3, lukemaraben, Jedi_Liz, earlybird - Thanks! [:D]

    ginchy - if Artoo talks this much without a tongue, imagine if he had one :p

    AzureAngel2 - I 'm imagining Han with 2 Leias [face_laugh] Plot Bunny!!!

    For this diary, I'll be using the Convo system instead of Tags because it's more reliable and will remind me to PM the sock. And if anyone wants to cancel, you can just press 'leave conversation'.

    SITUATION » Preparing departure


    »» Master Luke has told me to report to the spaceport and aid the maintenance officers in prepping the X-wing for departure. When I inquired as to our destination he informed me we'd be going to Dagobah.

    »» Great! We're going to the bleeping mud-bucket. You ask me why I don't like the place. It's because it's damp and muddy and dark and there's an overgrown water creature there that keeps trying to eat me. I AM NOT EATABLE!!!

    »» Ahem... I know Master Luke is concerned about the Princess' safety and he would much rather join her and the rest of the family on their mission to Bpfassh (the Empire has raided the planet, along with two others, and it's time for the New Republic to show our support and assured them that it would not happen again, as if we could). Unfortunately for Master Luke the Bpfasshi don't like Jedi so he can't come along. Captain Solo explained that it was because, during the Clone Wars, some of their Jedi went to the Dark Side and made a mess of things.

    »» Hmmf, I remember this and I could tell them the whole story, but that would mean revealing to the family that I was there and know everything, and that I used to hang out with their father and knew their mother... And that would be, as the humans put, opening a whole new can of worms and pouring them on their laps. I don't think they are ready for it. I know I'm not. So I'm not telling and that's final!

    »» Anyway, after the Princess confirmed the Captain's story, she recalled that one of those dark Jedi made it all the way to Dagobah before he got caught (by Master Yoda, as I said, I know this story better than they do), and that's when Master Luke got the idea to go back to the mud-bucket.

    »» Did I mention that I was having such a quiet day and enjoying the hilarity that ensues whenever Master Luke tries to teach his sister to use a lightsaber. I will treasure that particular recording, since I know they are rare.

    I bet that Leia is going to want that holo recording of her trying to block training bolts so it can't be used for blackmail.

    Yes, everyone hates Dagobah.

    The NR has no braisn in many cases and sometimes I wonder if the reason why they don't have tones of brains is because that's the wy the publishing companies wanted it and then they could have their damsel in distress.

    I am working on the next chapters of Scavenger Hunt and Who am I so that should be fun.

    Once again, Artoo shows that only he truly knows the entire story of Star Wars. [face_laugh] :D

    And of course he's not happy about going back to Dagobah. I'd tell him to join the club, but somehow I doubt anyone else has had a giant swamp creature try to eat them. :p

    Artoo is a 'can' of knowledge and he sure wants to keep that still a secret;)

    Ack, haven't had much time to come by the JC since the new year began and didn't realise that this diary had already begun and has so many posts!

    Love to see Artoo's snark back. The starting post was hilarious - I always wondered how Artoo survived without a memory wipe, so I guess we know the answer now. :p

    Would you please add me to the Convo? Thanks! :)

    @Valiowk - Welcome back! [:D] I'll add you.

    I loved R2's pointed little entry about the number of diplomats vs. the number of Jedi. That was great!

    I also really enjoyed the mention of the recording of Leia's lightsaber training, LOL. Hopefully R2 won't get eaten on Dagobah this time.

    I've been meaning to reread TTT for a while now, and every time I read one of your updates I want to hurry up and get started on it. :) I just have to finish one other book first.

    Keep up the great work!

    Entry Six

    ENTRY » START NEW
    GALACTIC DATE » 44:4:26 GrS
    GALACTIC POSITION » Dagobah
    SITUATION » Leaving mud-bucket-planet behind.


    »» There is nothing worthy of recording about the trip to Dagobah. Master Luke slept through the entire journey (he calls it a hibernation trance, I call it sleep - beings do not snore while in a trance) and left me alone to entertain myself, which I did by listening to the X-wing's jokes. The X-wing picked up a lot of dirty jokes while serving in Rogue Squadron and likes to repeat them to me... over and over again.

    »» I guess I should add that our landing was also uneventful, mainly because Master Luke told me find a suitable place. If it had been up to him we would have probably ended up in the swamp again. Nevertheless, he did not appreciate my landing spot because it was right next to that dark side cave he met his father in years ago. My intention, of course, was to promote another meeting since I believe Anakin-Senior and Anakin-Junior have a LOT to talk about. But, unfortunately, I cannot tell Anakin-Junior that.

    »» After our arrival, Master Luke finally told me what the bleep we were doing in the mud-bucket. He was hoping Master Yoda would have left something behind, like books or recordings, to aid master Luke in his task to reestablish the Jedi Order and train his sister and others. Yeaahhh... mustn't tell, mustn't tell, mustn't tell... for all intents and purposes I do NOT have anything of the sort! Bleep it!

    »» So Master Luke searched the ruins of Master Yoda's cabin for a while and, of course, found nothing. After he gave up on the ruins, he asked me to scan the area for electronic remains, to which I complied. Naturally, I found something and the signal was coming from inside the dark side cave. Master Luke was not happy about that. But, like the good little Jedi he is, Anakin-Junior released his misgivings into the flow of the Force and went in to fetch the thing.

    »» He was in there for an inordinate amount of time, and I was starting to wonder if he had indeed met with his father (hey, maybe the electronic signal I picked up was the Vader-suit) when I heard him shout out a desperate NO. This had me worried that the meeting was not going as well as I had hoped.

    »» A few moments later, he commed me and asked for new directions to the electronic signal. I directed him to it and he returned to me after retrieving it, immediately asking me if I could identify it.

    »» I could not, but I did remember seeing something similar in the hands of General Calrissian and I informed Master Luke of this as soon as we were back aboard the X-wing.

    »» Seeing that there was nothing more for us to do on Dagobah, Master Luke told me to plot a course to Nkllon so that he could ask General Calrissian about the device.

    »» After we entered hyperspace, and before Master Luke fell asleep again, I managed to get Master Luke to tell me what had happened in the cave. He did not meet his father again, like I had thought, but instead had a vision about an alternative ending to our rescue of Captain Solo from Jabba's years ago. In his vision, a woman had foiled the plan (plan, what plan?) and we all had died. I could tell by his tone of voice and heart-rate that he was deeply upset by this vision. I hope it will not give him nightmares.

    »» Also, I hope General Calrissian has a good droid-maintenance facility. I'm in dire need of a lubrication bath to clean out all this mud.


    »» NEXT DESTINATION - Nkllon.

    Is the Oil Bath going to become the running joke again? 'Cause it was funny.

    Poor R2, he knows so much but for different reasons can't reveal them.

    It's a shame that you didn't go completely AU for this but hey it will be amusing to see R2 biting his proverbial tongue.
