    "And then the battlestation's alert went off"...what happened this time, does someone want to hurt the almighty Jacen? *Gasp*

    I agree, Kyp is way too stubborn...but then again, so's Jaina. And she needs someone to tell her that her brother isn't superior in the Force! Ah, well. Speaking of Leia and Han, where are they? Anyways, this was a great update! Thanks!

    I'm working on an update, but life's busy these days. :(

    Here are a couple of replies with a spoiler or two in them. ;)

    Well, Jaina is in her early twenties and Kyp has always been mentally... young for his age? :p

    He can handle it! I even bet he thinks it was totally worth it. ;)

    Exactly. :p But do you really think he's too stubborn? ;)

    Thanks. :D
    And don't worry, there's lots more of creepy Jacen coming. [face_mischief]

    Possibly... [face_mischief]

    I'm not sure, with the Empire's misogynistic attitude, that it will be easy for Jaina to find someone who doesn't think that Jacen is superior in every way. :(
    But never give up hope, right? :)

    That's a very good question. :D I'll give you a little spoiler: [hl=black]Han is on Dantooine.[/hl] [face_whistling]

    Thanks for reading. :D

    Really? I'd be interested in your observations, but no pressure. ;)

    [face_laugh] Thanks. I wonder who he's got that from. ;)

    Thanks and done. :D

    Sure. Thanks for reading. :)

    Excellent post; I love the K/J-ness ;) I look forward to learning more about why Leia asked Kyp to watch over Jacen as well as finding out what exactly Leia does.

    For a moment, worry flickered in the eyes of Jaina and Kyp Durron; then training took over, and they snapped smartly to attention in front of their High Commander.

    Lord Jacen Skywalker nodded in approval. He liked the way that they placed themselves at his disposal--their identities as his sister and his friend instantly sublimated to their role as warriors of the Empire, ready to kill or die on his order.

    Still grinning, Jacen pulled the commlink from his tunic pocket, and opened a channel to the Vader?s bridge..


    ?My Lord,? came back the voice from the command deck. ?Rebel fighters are attacking the fleet. We count thirty ships, Lord Skywalker.?

    Jacen nodded, faintly puzzled by the information?no sane man would send a handful of snubfighters against the greatest concentration of strength in the Imperial starfleet. It seemed too crazy even for a twisted alien brute like a Mon Cal or a Bothan. But they were Rebels, so maybe he wasn?t entirely surprised that they were insane.

    ?I'm on my way.? Dropping his commlink back into his pocket, he looked at the two officers waiting for his orders, and his grin grew bright again. ?Commander Durron, Flight Lieutenant. It appears that you have some X-wings to kill for me?.?

    His sister saluted very smartly. ?Yes, sir.?

    He stepped up to her and hugged her, tight but quick. ?Slay Rebels for your brother, sis,? he whispered in her ear. ?Have fun.?

    Inside, he could tell that she felt uneasy, but she suppressed it, and he grinned in approval at her discipline and obedience. She would lose her last doubts soon enough, he hoped: he looked forward to the days when she had become his fully willing weapon.

    ?Now, get to your ships.? He gestured for them to leave the turbolift. ?I'm needed on the bridge.?

    Kyp was silent for just a moment longer than he should have been.

    ?Yes, sir. Come on, Lieutenant.? He gave a beckon for Jaina to follow him. ?With me.?

    She obeyed with a determined look, betraying no emotion as she marched out into the corridor. Jacen smiled as the doors slid closed. Then he punched the button that would take him to the bridge, and leaned back against the wall.

    His smile flexed again as he felt a persistent pulse of energy reaching out to him, something that wasn?t part of the great symphony of the command ship itself. It was the insistent sensation of Tahiri contacting him in the Force, asking to obey his will.

    In reply, he simply filled her with an urge be with him; her own insight would tell her to find him on the bridge. It was nothing they hadn?t done a hundred times in training, but now that they were doing it for real, it felt deliciously satisfying. He could feel her eagerness, as well, as she rushed into action?lit up by her desire to serve the Empire, as sharp and brilliant as a lightsaber.

    Jacen was still grinning when he stepped out onto the bridge. But he hid the smile as the knot of command officers turned towards him.

    ?What seems to be the problem, Admiral?? His expression became as sharp as his voice. ?Why haven't you destroyed the Rebels yet."

    Admiral Jeratai looked nervous, reinforcing the doubts Jacen had had about him from the start. "They... they launched from one of our own Star Galleons, sir,? he said. ?They ran in straight through our pickets, and they're running close patterns across our hull. The rest of the fleet can't fire for risk of hitting us, and their flight-paths are so dangerous that our TIEs are having trouble keeping on the Rebels? tails. We've already lost eleven ships in collisions....?

    Jacen could feel his own strength and pride assert themselves, as his eyes turned gold with Force energy. He smiled like a tiger as the Admiral's throat twitched. "Let me see," he snarled, and paced past him to the command console.

    The display showed the cold blue dagger of the Vader, surrounded by smaller glyphs denoting her escorts?and buzzed by a few annoying little red insects, the Rebel snubfighters.

    I?ve trained for this. I can do it.[/i

    Why does something still feel wrong? Probably because something still is wrong, arrogant person. The Rebels ALWAYS have another trick up their sleeves. Great update! And Dubrillion, huh? [face_thinking]

    I'm guessing something still feels wrong b/c your little brother is making a run to come aboard your ship to capture you...or something like that. It's a trick Jacen!

    I have to admit, I like him dark and mean. It suits him well! [face_devil]

    I'm not sure about Jaina and Kyp yet and how they will play out (good or bad??) Neither is bad at their core, they've just been trained by an evil Luke (I'm assuming) and are confused.

    Does this mean Luke's sort of run a "Shadow Academy" of his own? And when will Luke make an appearance?

    There were two stormtroopers guarding the armored hatchway. Behind the blast-doors, there was a security lobby, with a black-clad junior officer standing at a control console, and probably a couple of Navy troopers on guard with him.

    Corran Horn didn?t need the Force to tell him that, which was just as well. For a Rebel strike team sneaking through the corridors of the Empire?s flagship, it was too risky to reach out with Jedi senses. Jacen Skywalker might detect them, and then they?d be in trouble.

    Instead, Corran had simply eyeballed the officer, whenever the door opened and closed to let through Imperial personnel. The Navy troopers were a guess, but a good one. That was the standard deployment

    ?Akanah,? he asked, glancing at the woman beside him. In response, she just nodded, and looked silently at the troopers. Her expression, always severely beautiful, seemed to become even more abstracted.

    Then it was done. She closed her dark eyes, and bowed her head, knowing that she?d just condemned two men to death.

    Corran nodded, and signaled to Daeshara?cor and Numa Rar, the two Twi?lek woman who served as the strike team?s snipers. They raised their weapons, and fired.

    The bolts disappeared half-way across the corridor, and even to Corran?s well-honed Jedi senses, there was no sign that they?d hit home. There were still two troopers standing either side of the hatchway, as if nothing had happened.

    Akanah gave him the briefest glance, and the truth was in her eyes. The troopers were dead. What was left was a Force illusion?or, as she would have it, a reflection mirrored from the surface of the White Current.

    He felt uneasy about Akanah, sometimes, but he wasn?t sure there was any other option. The Galaxy?s last Fallanassi adept had access to aspects of the Force that no Jedi could see, and Akanah had proved that she could use them without being detected by the Empire?s own Force-users.

    It was the only way they?d gotten this far, and that was that.

    Corran gestured his team forward, and they moved silently across the hallway, clustering in front of the hatchway, between the troopers. A slight frown darkened Corran?s face: even at point-blank range, even to the eyes of a Jedi Master, the guards still seemed tangibly real: two living, breathing Imperial soldiers in gleaming white armour.

    But they weren?t challenging the Rebel strike team, and that was the important thing.

    Beside him, Akanah nodded again, this time without even being asked. She?d applied her skills to the guards on the other side of the door now. Whatever they did in there in the next few minutes, it would be invisible to the rest of the Galaxy.

    ?Stand by,? Corran said, and pressed a button on his commlink?sending a short signal to Anakin and Valin, back at the shuttle. Aboard a Super Star Destroyer on a battle-stations alert, the pulse would be lost in all the communications chatter between soldiers and pilots and Navy crew positions.

    Sometimes, the simple answers were the best.

    The doors shot open, the black-clad officer looked up in surprise?and Tesar Sebatyne?s blaster took him down. The rest of the team rolled through the gap, and a bright red flurry of blaster-fire dispatched the two Navy troopers standing guard.


    In the Force, Corran had the disturbing sensation that the three men were still standing guard?a little like ghosts, detached from the dead bodies on the deck.

    Beside him, Akanah frowned at the sprawled figure behind the main console, and Corran had to admit that Tesar?s gun was a little messier than necessary for an anti-personnel weapon. Then the Fallanassi woman steeled herself?and the guards were standing up again, their corpses vanished from view.

    Tesar looked at the ?officer? behind the desk, his snout twitching. Corran knew that the Barabel commando was tempted to strike up a conversation. It would have been typical of his wayward humor. But even Tesar knew better than to make light of Akanah?s skills.

    All of them knew that this was hard for the Fallanassi woman. It was hard

    ah... so Akanah is helping the rebels out here..

    interesting addition to the strike team, especially when it's coupled with the fact that she's doing things she finds morally repugnant... i'm interested in seeing where her story goes.

    Great job, more soon please!

    I was curious as to who the rebel Jedi would be as opposed to the Imperial Jedi. So we have Luke on one side and Leia on the other? Corran I thought would fall into place nicely as a rebel leader. Love your addition of Akannah and her extraordinary abilities. Aslo, Tesar! Barabels are just fun b/c they are so off beat.

    Want more story ! Want it now! Thanks! =D=

    Corran as a rebel Jedi? I think it really fits, since Corran's always struck me as the sort of person to always want to do the right thing.

    I don't know too much about Akanah. I haven't read the Black Fleet Crisis and I have no clue about this White Current stuff. :p It sounds intersting, though.

    Great update! =D=
    And thank for the PM!

    Done! ;)

    Oh, Jacen just needs people looking after him and cleaning up the mess he creates. :p I think you'll get a hint or two in the future as to what that mess is or was.

    As for Leia... There already were some clues, but probably hard to catch. Just wait and see? [face_whistling]

    Good catch. Most Imperials are just too conceited for their own good, huh? ;)

    Dubrillion? o_O Either you confused that with Dantooine or you know something I don't... [face_thinking] ;)

    Hey, were you trying to warn Jacen? :eek: ;)
    I have to say I'm enjoying him as well. :p

    Luke... It's probably going to be a while before he appears. He kinda... retired from active duty...

    Thanks. I thought the conflict might be interesting, but I'm not sure how much of her story I'll be able to tell. I don't want the amount of characters to get out of hand too much. [face_blush]

    Glad you liked the team. :D Next update coming soon. Some more Kyp. ;)

    Thanks. She has been an underused character, right? :)

    You will find out soon what the mission and the outcome are, I hope. :D

    You were the first one who showed more interest in Corran than Akanah. I have to say I'm surprised. ;)

    All you need to know I'll tell you. ;)
    I agree that it made sense for Corran to be a Rebel. :)

    Thanks for reading and commenting everyone! [:D]

    Next update coming soon.

    Here's the update (big thanks to MarasFire for the beta work, again):

    Jaina followed Kyp into the Vader?s hangar complex, her expression unreadable. She was a TIE pilot for the Empire, and Kyp was her superior officer, so she?d follow automatically on his wing when he ordered her to?for a walk down a corridor, or for a dogfight against the entire Rebel fleet.

    But Kyp, rather than following his training and focusing on his duty to the Empire, was very definitely enjoying the situation, and Jaina wasn?t sure she liked that much.

    ?We should have red alerts more often,? Kyp said, starting to unfasten his tunic, in preparation for changing into his flight gear.

    Jaina looked at him as if he was crazy, and to her annoyance, he laughed at her expression.

    ?Talk less and walk faster?? she snapped, then frowned, reminding herself that she was on duty. ?Sir.?

    Kyp grinned at her again, and quickened his pace. ?Your legs are shorter than mine, Lieutenant. I don't want my new wing guard exhausted in the cockpit.?

    She gritted her teeth, and balled her fists. If they hadn?t been in the middle of a battle, she would have punched him for that comment, and risked the punishment.

    Kyp just laughed.

    They turned the next corner, and Jaina was saved from further humiliation by the sight of Flight Captain Vehn, Saber Squadron?s second-in-command. As soon as he caught sight of Kyp, he hurried towards them, something close to relief shining in his eyes.

    ?Yes, XO?? Kyp asked. ?What is it??

    ?Sir. Two Flight reported seeing a shuttle or light freighter, docked in the brim trench, about three miles back from the bow. The 128th didn?t find them again on the next pass, and Flight Command told them to forget about it, but... I thought you should be informed, sir.?

    ?You did the right thing, Captain. Thank you.? Kyp gave a nod to dismiss the XO, then beckoned Jaina to follow him. ?Come on, Lieutenant Skywalker. Let?s check this out.?

    ?Yes, sir.?

    Her reply was meant to be poisoned with irony. Unfortunately, Kyp just drank it up like a shot of whiskey, and gave her a grin to show how much he?d liked it.

    Jaina was still smoldering when they arrived in the pre-flight room. She started undressing quickly, trying to ignore Kyp, and the glances he threw in her direction. When she was stripped down to her underclothes, she pulled open her her locker, and leaned inside.

    She felt an amused male gaze dwelling on her hips as she pulled her flight suit out to put it on.

    She turned, already starting to get dressed, and shot Kyp a very dirty look.

    That didn?t quite have the impact she?d have hoped when it was fielded by a grinning, broad-chested Kyp Durron, dressed just in boxer shorts.

    Jaina scowled, and gritted her teeth even tighter. She was angry now, and she wasn?t sure she fully knew why.

    She didn?t even want to think about it.

    Instead, she focused on getting ready for the mission, pulling on her jumpsuit and fastening the seals at her wrists and neck. Her belt and gloves and boots went on over the top, then the body-armor with the life support pack bolted on the breastplate.

    Flight Lieutenant Jaina Skywalker, callsign Saber Eleven, tucked the helmet under her arm, ready to head out for her TIE. Then she made the mistake of looking at Kyp, to see how he was getting on.

    ?Perfect,? he nodded at her. ?Come on, Lieutenant. Let's kill something. It'll help with the sexual frustration.?

    And he walked straight past, casually beckoning for her to follow him onto the launch gantry.

    Jaina just stood where she was was, gripped by fury. She tried to answer, but her mouth opened and closed in silence, and that just made her even more furious.

    There was no way a man should be able to do this to her.

    Kyp?s laughter chimed back along the gantry. ?Anger, good. It'll make you a better killer. Come on.?

    Jaina?s eyes blazed after him, and then she moved forward in pursuit. She reached him before they reached their fighters, and cut him up like a swoop rac

    Man, Kyp was totally asking for that shove. I feel kinda sorry for Jaina, being forced to accompany and obey that kind of leader - I only hope he'll be more focused in combat (on the enemy, that is). Does Jaina get to see Anakin at all, or does he go right to Jacen? Anyway, this update was a definite perk to a dreary day, and I loved the Kyp and Jaina banter!

    I found this today, and I love it! I can never get enough of Kyp/Jaina, especially when the relationship is this... twisted.

    ?Perfect,? he nodded at her. ?Come on, Lieutenant. Let's kill something. It'll help with the sexual frustration.?

    Hehe, I loved that! Maybe Jaina is just angry because she knows its true! She can't convince me that she didn't like seeing Kyp in his underwear. [face_batting]

    I loved that update! The more Kyp the better. I do love K/J done right and you've got it: Why? Because as Duroness said, "it's twisted." The very fact that they are Imps is twisted. His flirtations are annoying and her liking them back is silly and funny. I just love their banter. Can't wait to see how they fly together. =D=
