    Anakin and Obi-Wan ruin Yoda's dinner date with Count Dooku and the most meaningful love story in prequel-era literature succumbs to tragedy.

    When Yoda learns Dooku taught Ventress that "excellent wine and confusion to the enemy" are the only two things one appreciates more the older one becomes, he decides the time has come to teach his old apprentice a new lesson.

    I didn't think Odie and Erk were in YDR.

    Yoda reveals much about himself, including his ultimate weapon against the dark, a rose.

    When wisdom failed to persuade Dooku to abandon the dark side, Yoda rose to the occasion.

    Jello Guys, you've really been letting @Havac run away with these lately. Time to step it up.

    TFU.

    Hey, I did beat him for Cestus Deception after the fact. That's something. [face_whistling]

    And TFU? I was hoping MedStar was next. :(

    Entries can apply to any of TFU's various forms. And Todd, don't forget the 50% rule - if your lead in the last round increases to more than half of Hav's total, you're the new winner.

    Starkiller Force powers with the Starkiller and the Starkiller, HERO OF THE GALAXY, Starkiller blah blah Starkiller Star Destroyers falling from the skies because of Starkiller and Starkiller, and who are these Skywalkers anyway, and what do they have to do with the majesty of the series that is Starkiller Wars?

    Rhett (also known as Starkiller) is singlehandedly responsible for the creation of the Rebel Alliance, and manages to best both Darth Vader and the Galactic Emperor in a contest of lightsabers and the Force and I really wish I was making stuff up for a funny entry but this unbelievable **** actually happened and it's canon and a tiny part of me kinda wishes the purists had won the canon wars now.

    So, remember Bail Organa, that awesome non-Force using human who helped found the Rebellion against the evil Enpire with two other non-Force users, Mon Mothma and Garm Bel Iblis, well, the only reason he did it was a Sith apprentice turned almost Jedi talked him into it after a half-drunk, blind Jedi told him there was good in his heart, even after he, a teen trainee killed Shaak Tii, a former Council member and some other random Jedi created just for this multimedia project, because Darth Vader doesn't get the Rule of Two idea of having only TWO Sith, so he decides to get an apprentice, then betrays him because he is a wee bit scared of the Emperor, then talks him into founding the Rebellion on the orders of Palpatine; how ironic, Palpatine and Vader formed the Rebellion by extension; then the still not complete after seventeen years Death Star is the battleground where Rhett, or Starkiller as some call him, proceeds to thrash Vader and is killed saving the fake founders of the Rebellion after kissing his pilot, and dies bein heroic, but in a strange twist, did he die? Or something.

    In short, a blind, drunk Jedi; a half-Jedi, half Sith who breaks the Rule of Two; Darth Vader, who doesn't understand the Rule of Two; and Emperor Palpatine form the Rebellion in a terrible plan.

    Vader trains weakling apprentice Starkiller to found the Rebel Alliance mere months before A New Hope with everyone and their pet Kowakian monkey-lizard knowing about the Death Star and it's location, because the Emperor is sick of his enemies mocking him behind his back

    Coop, you should probably institute a maximum word count on these things, especially when independent thoughts are being separated by semicolons. :p

    The ultimate Gary Stu saves the day, and ruins it, and saves it again, and ruins it, and saves it again, and finishes it off by ruining canon.

    I agree with Jello. Half my english teachers would have a thing or two to say about the evils of semicolons.

    I had hoped the clear intent of the thread would prevent me from needing a hard and fast rule about it, but you may be right. For the moment I'm just going to reserve the right to disqualify especially long entries if they have no other value than listing a hundred things.

    Yeah I like to make mine short and sweet... I used polysyndeton this time just to indicate desperation and mental breakdown induced by TFU. A paragraph novel summary defeats the point of this thread.

    Point is to be funny, not to cover everything that happens.

    Oh yeah, entry....


    Darth Vader's secret apprentice Flint Lumiya Tao Starkiller kills some Jedi, dies, founds the Rebellion after discovering he likes boobs, only to tragically die again, and inspires Princess Leia to adopt his family crest as the symbol of the Rebellion, all in the span of six months.
