Uh..er...this is my first attempt at a Fan Fiction on this board I was just thinking of Qui Gons early days with Count Dooku and thought of a few stories recently though. I hope this one meets approval and its not too rusty. THE ADVENTURES OF DOOKU YRAN AND QUI GON JINN PART 1 THE MEETING By OGILBYB The boy had been without a Jedi Master for two years and he was now 10. He was passed a Youngling. He had been watching the thin wirey man for some time but was not sure whether he would take him as his apprentice now Qui Gon Jinn felt he had to know. Qui Gon walked up to the camp where Dooku was sitting crosslegged and eating a piece of smoked rabbit on a stick. Dooku looked up at him slowly. "Im not sure I have enough for you boy". He said. "I have been watching you I bet your a great Jedi Knight!" Qui Gon returned. Qui Gon realized he was beaming and stared down at the ground. The Jedi Knight scratched his orange beard and laughed "Well for a 26 year old looking for an apprentice I do allright". "Great" Qui Gon said "I need a Jedi Master, i'm 10 and I dont have one". "Yoda did not assign you one?" Dookus brown eyes were very surprized. "No" Qui Gon said "He could not find someone". "I will train you" Dooku said getting up "but I want to test you first to see where your abilities lie, a group of bandits have captured a settlers daughter, cowards but I have not caught them yet, I know that they are nearby though camped down the road west i want you to find them and rescue the daughter" Dooku picked up the sharp stick he was eating off of "use this". Qui Gon scoffed and he lost his cool "thats stupid, its just a stick". Dookus brown eyes hardened on Qui Gon and his face grew serious "no, this is more then a stick boy, its a powerfull weapon, remember Yodas training, the daughter must be rescued, oh and I should introduce myself I am Dooku Yran". "Qui Gon Jinn" the boy returned "May the Force be with you Qui Gon" Dooku said softly. Qui Gon turned his blue eyes to the sunset and began making his way to the road.
