Better late than never.
Hey, I've been busy!
And with the delay, she had the element of surprise... pounce when least expect it.
She is a master tactician.
Or just like Tigger..
except he goes "Helllooooo buddy boy!" or "Ahhooohoohoohoooooo" after the pounce
I can so see Addie doing that.
Okay, Thanks. It's just like all of a sudden they had to to say "Oh yeah, Vergere was a Sith." Don't like that little plot at all, but I guess we're stuck with it.
I dont like the all of the dark jacen and everything about it. I was hoping he was going to come back from his journey and be like a merlin type character. Able to show luke sometricks and stuff. But noooo. They had to make him go dark. Smh.
Jacen going dark I don't like.
Crazy Chicken turning out to be a Sith...that I was perfectly okay with. Though I realize I'm very much in the minority there.
I suspected she was Sith form the start, but Jacen? I was sure he'd see th e error of his ways and fix it....
Yeah, that was one of the things that bugged me. Even though I dislike Crazy Chicken, everything she put Jacen through meant he should have been able to recognize going dark, and what that meant. Sadly, it didn't turn out that way.
That's probably what bothers me the most about the Vergere Sith thing. I don't see where she had what it took to be Sith. A user of the Dark Side, sure. Sith, no way. Jacen's fall was a mistake, but I guess we're stuck with that too.
Heh, had to give you the setup.
Hey, these days you're lucky I turn up!!
Just need a little poking sometimes...
Says you MIA Man!
Yeah it kind of applied to the both of us, me more than you.
Everything she taught him in traitor seemed pretty Sith-like.
The bit I thought most closely paralleled the Sith "There is only passion: through passion I gain strength, through strength I gain power" was:
p168 Traitor"What you call the dark side is the raw, unrestrained Force itself: you call the dark side what you find when you give yourself over wholly to the Force. To be a Jedi is to control your passion ... but Jedi control limits your power. Greatness - true greatness of any kind - requires the surrender of control. Passion that is guided, not walled away. Leave your limits behind."
Yeah, that pretty much is a Sith statement she made there.
I suppose some of the "greyer" Dark Jedi- like Brakiss, who teaches that both sides of the Force need to be used if you wish to maximise your potential, might make similar statements. Still, it is pretty suggestive.
Kyle Katarn taught his students that "Abilities don't matter, it's how you use them".
Still, to my mind, the most telling point in favour of Vergere was when she was perched in that tree being hunted by bird-eating snakes - and all she did was to throw them as far away as she could! That just doesn't seem like what a Sith (or even a Dark Jedi) would do to solve the problem.
True. A Sith would have tried to slaughter as many as possible.
I think I'll just leave this here...
