    Thanks, Jade!! (Geez, I can't stop saying that, can I?)

    It'll probably take me a while to get the next post out, cuz I'm not very good at writing action scenes. I'll try my best at it, but I don't know how good my best will be.

    *delurks* I've enjoyed this so far. I thought the traitor might have been Taesa, based on her chat with Kyp. I know that Jaina, Tahiri, Zekk, Tenel Ka, and Lowie survived Myrkr. I think we're supposed to assume Jacen did as well. I don't know who else was on the mission (I don't have SbS either), so I can't tell you who else survived. *relurks*

    Kyp Durron watched, dazed, as his sister entered the lecture hall. She closed and locked the door behind her with the Force.

    "Why?" the young Jedi Master heard Luke Skywalker ask. "Why are you working with the Vong?"

    "They killed my husband," she said, her voice dangerously low. She still held Jacen's lightsaber in front of her. "You Jedi warriors did nothing to stop the Vong, and they killed my husband. You were too cowardly to fight them, and the one person that loved me was killed! You don't deserve to live. You deserve everything the Vong do to you!"

    "This war is not going to be won through aggression," Luke told her soothingly.

    Kyp knew what was coming, but was too slow to warn Luke. He watched, helpless, as Taesa threw Luke across the lecture hall with Force lightning.

    Both Mara and Leia cried out, and ran towards Luke. Before they could reach him, however, they were both slammed against the wall by a telekinetic blast from Taesa. Both women slumped, unconscious, against the wall.

    "How is this war going to be won?" the deranged healer demanded. "We either have to fight them, or give up, and let them be the dominant power in the universe! We can't just 'defend'! It won't work!"

    "Taesa, stop!!" Tahiri cried out, tears in her eyes. "You're hurting them."

    "That's the point, little girl," Taesa sneered. "Now shut up, before I decide that your mouth needs to be quieted."

    Tahiri begrudgingly shut her mouth, and stood facing the older woman. She watched, face and eyes hard, as Taesa approached her.

    Kyp stood, motionless, in the back of the room, watching his sister terrorized everyone else in the room. Does she even know I'm here? he wondered. If she did, then she would have come after me first, instead of Luke.

    Kyp did the only thing he could do, then. He grabbed the closest lightsaber from the table beside him, and lit the blade. Part of him noticed that he had grabbed Jaina's blade, but most of his brain was focused on his sister.

    "Taesa, stop," he commanded, surprised at how calm his voice sounded. "I don't want to have to stop you from hurting any one else."

    Taesa turned to look at Kyp, her eyes vemonous. "Like you could stop me, Kyp," she said. "You're not strong enough. Not without the Dark Side."

    Kyp watched in horror as Alema Rar, a Twi'lek, moved up behind Taesa as the human's attention was on Kyp. Alema's lekku were twitching with something akin to excitement. She held her clawed hands up, ready to strike...

    "Alema, no!!" he cried out, but it was too late. Taesa had rounded on the Twi'lek, and before Alema could possibly know what was happening, ran her through with the emerald lightsaber.

    Taesa pulled the lightsaber from the other woman's chest, and watched as she fell to the floor, her eyes wide in surprise and fear, already dead. The "healer" laughed sadistically and turned to look at those behind Alema's body. "Don't interfere, or you'll end up like her."

    Kyp decided it was now or never, and pressed an attack on Taesa's exposed flank. She sensed his attack, turned, and caught his violet blade on her emerald one.

    Actually Jaina and Jacen's blades, Kyp thought with a certain degree of detachment. Why didn't I just use my lightsaber? It's clipped to my belt, for Force sake!

    But Kyp did know why he picked up Jaina's lightsaber. It just hadn't seemed right for him to fight Jacen's blade with his own. It was Jaina's blade that needed to be in the battle, if he was to live through the experience.

    The Force wills it, therefore, it must come to pass.

    Kyp didn't know where he had heard that phrase before, only that he hadn't been the one to say it. It might have been said at some point in his training, or the spirit of Exar Kun might have said it. I just hope it's true. If it isn't, I might just end up dead.

    Kyp and Taesa fought their battle silently, neither speaking to the other, or their unwilling spectators. As Kyp flipped over his sister's head, he caught sight of Jaina for a moment. Sh

    You got it, Jade. [face_devil]

    And, yes, Alema did die. And so did Taesa (although I thought I made that obvious). And, yes, there will be a sequel out, probably sometime next week.

    Number three!!!

    Jacen Solo knelt in front of his uncle, in a small lecture hall. A week after the Knighting ceremony was supposed to take place, it finally was happening. Everyone had decided that the primary lecture hall was no longer an appropriate place to hold the ceremony, and so the location was changed to a small, secondary lecture hall.

    Looking around at his fellow newly-Knighted Jedi, Jacen felt a pang of grief. Alema Rar, who should have been there to celebrate with them, was gone. She had died, trying to fight Taesa Andryh, who had gone crazy, and tried to incapacitate them all.

    She succeeded in getting me out of the picture, Jacen thought. She almost killed me. Well, me, Jag, Jaina, Tionne, and Mekira. Stang, she must have really had a grudge to want to kill a newborn.

    "Your actions have proven that you are truly Jedi Knights," Luke Skywalker was saying, jolting Jacen out of his reverie. "This ceremony is simply a formality, as I believe you all know."

    Jacen watched as his uncle's gaze moved around the room, his eyes landing on everyone present, if only for a second. His gaze lingered slightly longer on Kyp than on anyone else. He had kill his sister at the last ceremony, to save everyone. Uncle Luke sympathizes. So do I. I don't think I would ever be able to kill Jaina, self-defense or not.

    "Alema Rar, who lived well, and died fighting, died a full Jedi Knight," Luke continued. "She died bravely, defending those around her. Honor her by always fighting in the light, and never abandoning youself to the Dark Side."

    Jacen glanced at his sister, only to find her gazing right back at him. She knew that he feared for her, after her fall that he hadn't been around to help her through. Don't worry, her expression seemed to say, I won't fall again.

    I trust you, he sent, knowing that she got the meaning, if not the exact words.

    Glancing to his other side, Jacen found Tahiri Veila also already looking at him. Her expression seemed to say, Don't worry. I'm not afraid anymore.

    He turned back to his uncle as the latter begain to talk again. "There is nothing more to say to you, except: May the Force be with you."

    As one, all those kneeling stood and turned around. They all called their lightsabers to their hands from the small table on the back of the table in the back of the room. They all clipped the hilts of their blades to their belts, and, as one, began talking excitedly.

    "Congratulations, Tahiri," Jacen told the blond girl. "The youngest Jedi Knight in history."

    Tahiri blushed. "Only as far as we know," she said. "We don't know much about the old order. There could have been a six year old Knight for all we know."

    "No, I doubt that," he said with a smile. Over Tahiri's shoulder, he saw Tenel Ka talking enthusiastically to Ganner Rhysode. Tahiri followed his gaze.

    "Jealous?" she asked, turning back to him with a smile.

    "No," he said, and realized, with a start, that he wasn't. He still considered Tenel Ka one of his closest and best friends, but he no longer had any romantic feelings for her. Maybe I never did, he thought. Maybe it was only a childhood crush.

    After a moment's silence, Tahiri said, "Come on. I heard a rumor that the students were going to throw us a party. I hate going to parties alone."

    "Why, dear lady, are you asking me on a date?" Jacen asked playfully.

    "No," Tahiri said, smiling. "I'm ordering you to escort me to this party. Now let's go."

    "Of course," he answered, holding out his arm. Tahiri slipped her arm through his, and they walked off together, talking and laughing.

    I'm finally healing. I'll be okay, from now on. I might not be the person I was before this war, but I'm still a Jedi. Now, and forever.

    Are you guys telling me that I was that obvious with the Traitor's identity? I tried to keep it a big secret. Am I that bad at mystery?

    Thanks, Jade!! :D (There, I said it again!)

    No LB, your not that bad at mystery. I was doubting myself for a little while, but I knew that Taesa did it. Don't aske why, I just did. That was an awesome story! A sequel will be very nice. Can't wait!

    If it's any consolation I thought it was going to be Jacen but a Jacen with Implants that he wasn't in control of.

    Great job the Kyp on the one before this last one. I felt so bad for him!

    I can't wait for more!!!!

    Well, Jaggie_Jaya, this story isn't done yet. I have a few more (2 or 3, I think) posts left. I wouldn't want you to miss the end of the story! ;)

    Thanks, ChC! I was trying to get some strong emotions across, but I thought it felt a little stiff. But if you liked it, then I must not have done that bad of a job.
