    Aw, c'mon, man. Don't let us hanging too long with details on what is going on between Tahiri and Anakin. :p

    Good chapter. :) It'd be interesting if that girl from the bar would turn up later again. :D

    Pfffft. All hail Czulkang Lah, only Yuuzhan Vong to have mastered the concept of irony. [face_mischief]

    I don't trust myterious sources. :eek:

    YOu love to torture us! [face_shame_on_you] 3 months and Anakin & Tahiri haven't worked out their issues! :_| :p

    Looking forward to Jania and Anakin working together! :cool:

    It's nice seeing Jaden Korr in a fanfic. Not a lot of them actually use him. Nice to know whats been going on since the last time we checked in with the heroes. Anakin has it kinda right though, it is partially his fault. Jacen dealt his hand in that fight too, you know.

    Great post. Can't wait for the next one.

    Sort of, yes, though Malig did it and would have done it without Jacen once he found out what Sekot could do for him.

    Yeah well, you know, I think this Malig is really sneaky :p

    ? [face_whistling][face_whistling][face_whistling] ?

    ahhh I saw right through it :p

    Glad you remembered that [face_mischief]

    ?the end of all light? ... :p

    Well, Kre'fey and his peeps were going there to wipe out an entire race. Some might say it was fitting that that's what happened to his fleet.

    Well intended genocide can?t be countered with genocide some might say





    Chapter 4: Sector Zero

    The effect was simply dazzling.

    As the author?s descriptions ... ;)

    The band called themselves "Hyperdrive Shaft"

    LOL ... Drive Shaft ... ;)

    "Bail," the man said, looking up from his drink again with a sort of lopsided grin. "Lars."

    Hehe interesting combination of names :D

    "Believe it or not, the last time I was in the Uscru District I actually killed the Yuuzhan Vong Supreme Overlord."

    LOL
    Why telling her a faked name and then that?
    I doubt she really believes it [face_thinking]

    "They're finally being brought here tonight from Denon to the new Borsk Fey'lya Detention Facility. Their trial for that whole Centerpoint diversion they pulled with the Jedi is supposed to start in a few days."

    [face_laugh] oh my ... Borsk would turn in his grave ... ?Borsk Fey?lya Detention Facility [face_laugh]

    "They are! They saved us from the Vagaari, and you just know the Vagaari were the front line of the Chiss."

    Interesting stories they tell

    The woman laughed. "You don't talk much, do you, Bail?"

    LOL
    That woman seems a lot like Tahiri .. babbling like a waterfall ... the young Jedi was good with that at some point

    "Oh," the woman said, visibly drawing back. "Girlfriend?"

    "No."


    NO?!?!?!? :eek:

    "It's Antilles and the Corellians!" Cyra seemed to call to everyone on the balcony as she continued to gesture. A gasp of excitement worked its way through the crowd as they surged forward, pressing harder against the railing and nearly knocking the fogblaster from her companion's hand.

    Ahhh his ?transport? :p

    "No. Can you hold this?"

    "Sure," she frowned, accepting the glass as he handed it to her.

    "Thanks."


    ROFL

    He had already grabbed the balcony railing and vaulted over it. Cyra's scream died in the rush of wind that engulfed his falling body and he didn't even hear the glass shatter as it slipped from the woman's shock-numbed fingertips.

    LOL he could have taken it with him then LOL



    Awesome moves the young Solo has up his sleeves ... just like on Telex

    Seated at its helm, a look of unflinching concentration on his face, was Kyp Durron.

    Sweet :D

    The four Jedi squeezed into the back of the security speeder?it was a tight fit but much more comfortable than being captured or killed by the Raithians. Tresina Lobi took off from the transport just as the security speeders arrived, and they fled through the city in a hail of cannon fire.

    Awesome and impressing rescue :D



    "I sent Kyp to check on Zonama Sekot," his uncle explained. "It's been months since we've heard from Danni Quee and I want to make sure everything's okay."

    He might not like what he finds there .. the destroyed fifth fleet.
    And Sekot thinks the Jedi betrayed it [face_worried]
    Kyp might be in great danger because of that [face_thinking]




    His brother hadn't been lying about Tahiri?she'd been captured, but not killed. And Anakin's own anger had served to drive Jacen completely to the dark side.

    It was his fault.


    NOOOOOO </Vader>

    And his relationship with Tahiri...

    What is with it - you can?t let us hanging like that!!! *pouts*

    "Jaina," Anakin murmured, "What have you gotten yourself into now?"

    :p
    Trouble everywhere ;)


    Great update =D=

    *rushes in*

    Okay, you can start the fic... :p Oh yeah, you already did and I'm just so freakin' lame that I got here now. :rolleyes:

    Even though I've been eyeing your PM for like a month. [face_blush] I had to wait till I had the time to devote to this. Thankfully, Baby Girl is mucho distracted by the High School Musical movie currently playing.

    [face_devil]

    So, I think Sekot wins the Darth Helmet "Evil will always win because Good is Dumb" award for trusting Jacen here. And a hallucinating Jacen at that? Dood... you can't trust teh crazies. 8-}

    And man, it's got to suck when your A'rkai backfires on you like that. Literally. [face_mischief]

    And I'm just going to say this, but sending the Solo girls out on "Teh Wimmenz Gonna Kick Your Rathian Arse" roadtrip will result in disaster. Mark my words. [face_thinking] I'm just not sure for who yet.

    Good times.

    Okay Semi-Shock episode #2. [face_plain] One second *AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH....* 8-}

    Oh, Jaina [face_shame_on_you] trouble, trouble.

    [face_shame_on_you] too, Anakin & Tahiri! Relationship problems, bad! :rolleyes:

    More............![face_batting]

    Holy Smokes, YK!

    So this is the final chapter of your series!

    Me Like!

    Jaina. :rolleyes: Isn't she always in trouble.

    So Anakin and Tahiri are having problems that are unspoken but are there? [face_thinking] Hmmmm... interesting.

    Jacen, as always is a bag of scum! Will he die in this one?

    Oh. Luke hasn't heard from Danni. [face_worried] That doesn't sound good.

    And he sent Kyp after her!!! :eek:

    [face_thinking] do I foresee a Danni/Kyp? [face_mischief]

    Let's hope Sekot doesn't go pshyco on him. I happen to like Kyp, not as much as Jag, but Kyp is kick-backside!!!

    Oh. so Jaina did loose her hand in the last one! Okay. I get it!

    Ooo... Chak. this isn't going to be a C/J/J right? Because I might have a hard time deciding who's better! :eek:

    Is Anakin REALLY a Sith? He doesn't act very Sith-like in my option. [face_thinking]

    MORE!!!! Please :)

    Edit: Can I be put on a PM list? Please!!!

    I'm number TEN!!! I'm getting better at this!
    "Is something wrong?"

    "No. Can you hold this?"

    "Sure," she frowned, accepting the glass as he handed it to her.

    "Thanks."

    "Wait! What are you doing?"

    [face_mischief] This was one of my favorite parts.
    But it was too late.

    He had already grabbed the balcony railing and vaulted over it. Cyra's scream died in the rush of wind that engulfed his falling body and he didn't even hear the glass shatter as it slipped from the woman's shock-numbed fingertips.

    o_O This was my other favorite part. Anakin's got moves!
    When I read those two parts I thought of Anakin Skywalker in Attack of the Clones/Revenge of the Sith.

    Maggy: Jaina always ends up in trouble ... then her brother is a specialist for that too

    Yeah, I'm not sure Anakin has any room to talk here...

    Thanks for reading :)






    Treborani: Great chapter, but it didn't seem long enough.

    I thought it was at least 2,000 words too long :p Glad you liked it though.

    And thanks for adding me to the PM list.

    No problem [face_peace]

    "I hate it when he does that."

    Totally :cool:

    Anyway, can't wait to see what happens when Kyp gets to Zonama Sekot and I really hope that plenty of Yuuzhan Vong survived.

    Yeah, hopefully the Bothans getting vaped saved the Vong, but I guess we don't know what the Raithians had planned for them...

    Thanks for reading and replying :D






    Magnuskn: Aw, c'mon, man. Don't let us hanging too long with details on what is going on between Tahiri and Anakin.

    Sorry about that [face_mischief]

    More details coming though, it just might take a bit :p

    Good chapter. It'd be interesting if that girl from the bar would turn up later again.

    Think there was something more to her? Or just wondering if she's going to be a part of the story?

    Either way, I don't think we'll be seeing her again.

    Pfffft. All hail Czulkang Lah, only Yuuzhan Vong to have mastered the concept of irony.

    True [face_laugh] Though I think Nom Anor might have unwittingly.

    Thanks for reading and replying :D






    TSF: I don't trust myterious sources.

    What!? Those are the best kinds! :p

    YOu love to torture us! 3 months and Anakin & Tahiri haven't worked out their issues!

    Whoops, sorry about that [face_whistling]

    Seriously though, how unsatisfying would it be if it had all been worked out "off screen"? :p

    Looking forward to Jania and Anakin working together!

    Glad to hear it! Thanks for reading and replying :D






    GMK: It's nice seeing Jaden Korr in a fanfic. Not a lot of them actually use him.

    I still need to read Crosscurrent :p There will be a bit more Jaden to come, though he doesn't have a major role.

    Nice to know whats been going on since the last time we checked in with the heroes. Anakin has it kinda right though, it is partially his fault. Jacen dealt his hand in that fight too, you know.

    That's very true. Jacen's responsible for his own decisions and a lot of the horrible things that have happened throughout the series.

    Great post. Can't wait for the next one.

    Thanks and thanks for reading and replying :D There will be more on Friday.






    Maggy: Well intended genocide can?t be countered with genocide some might say

    True.

    LOL ... Drive Shaft ...

    Lost reference #815...

    Hehe interesting combination of names

    Anakin uses it as his fake name in Conquest when he's a Yuuzhan Vong slave.

    LOL
    Why telling her a faked name and then that?
    I doubt she really believes it


    Because she'd recognize the name, but think he's joking about the other thing.

    NO?!?!?!?

    That's not the ride he's waiting for.

    LOL he could have taken it with him then LOL

    That would just be unrealistic :p

    He might not like what he finds there .. the destroyed fifth fleet.
    And Sekot thinks the Jedi betrayed it
    Kyp might be in great danger because of that


    Good points [face_thinking]

    What is with it - you can?t let us hanging like that!!! *pouts*

    Suspense?

    Great update

    Thanks and thanks for reading and replying :)






    Cyn: *rushes in*
    Okay, you can start the fic... Oh yeah, you already did and I'm just so freakin' lame that I got here now.


    Nah, there's no rush ;) Always happy whenever you can make it [face_peace]

    Even though I've been eyeing your PM for like a month. I had to wait till I had the time to devote to this.

    Yeah, there's usually a lot to read with these things. Takes a lot of time.

    Oops! I'm late. [face_blush]

    Two great chapters. Darth Malig is truly a master manipulator and schemer, for the Force's sake he now has Zonama Sekot on his side. He's showing all the signs of a great Star Wars villain: 1. Manipulation of heroes, 2. Well planned schemes, 3. Purged the Jedi, 4. Turned a hero into his apprentice, 5. Possesses unique and amazing abilities, 6. Displayed uber Force powers to kill hundreds of enemies in battle... What's left? [face_thinking]

    7. Destroy a planet. :p Of course... Force-generated hyperspace wormholes and Nihilus mega Force drain had been done, Death Stars, World Devastators and Galaxy Guns done to the death, so... the biggest Force lightning anyone has ever generated that turns an entire planet to smoking ash? [face_mischief] :p

    Even if she didn't have much of a role, I like Cyra. I wonder if we will see her again.

    And now with the transfer of galactic power to Coruscant, I'm wondering if Malig has set up an even creepier base somewhere?

    Anakin and Tahiri still have problems? :_| NOOOOOOOOOOOOO! :p

    Eagerly awaiting the next chapter! [face_dancing]

    good chapter wes.

    liked Anakin's choice of Names : Bail lars.... he does know that they both suffered deaths at the hand of bad guys , right ??? o_O

    i liked the action in this chapter... made me feel like i was reading Aaron allston...
    Kudos for using Jaden Korr also.

    one question: is jacen going to 'claim' Hapes in the name of Raithians (technically, he is still their King [face_whistling] )

    good update and please include me in your PMs(i didnt get the PM for this chapter [face_hypnotized] )

    Classic. For a minute there, I lost track of sitting in front of a monitor simply reading about the rescue, and actually felt as if I was right there hurtling through the skylanes of Coruscant in the midst of the fight. One of your better action sequences for sure, and that is saying something. The galaxy may be doomed, but at least with Wedge back in action whatever happens next ought to be more interesting.

    Anakin seems to have thoroughly reconsidered his priorities, and that can only be a good thing for the time being. Although I'm concerned about what Kyp and Anakin will find when they arrive at their destinations, I know that the main thing that matters to me is Tahiri. More specifically, what will become of her now, and what, if anything, will Anakin have to do with it?

    Darth_Dreadwar: Oops! I'm late.

    Nah, not late at all [face_peace]

    Two great chapters.

    Thanks!

    Darth Malig is truly a master manipulator and schemer, for the Force's sake he now has Zonama Sekot on his side.

    Yeah, that's pretty scary. Obviously, Zonama Sekot is the key to his plans, and the two united seems like an unstoppable team [face_thinking]

    He's showing all the signs of a great Star Wars villain: 1. Manipulation of heroes, 2. Well planned schemes, 3. Purged the Jedi, 4. Turned a hero into his apprentice, 5. Possesses unique and amazing abilities, 6. Displayed uber Force powers to kill hundreds of enemies in battle... What's left?

    This is a great question. We've seen the manipulations and the destructions... What's left? [face_mischief]

    7. Destroy a planet. Of course... Force-generated hyperspace wormholes and Nihilus mega Force drain had been done, Death Stars, World Devastators and Galaxy Guns done to the death, so... the biggest Force lightning anyone has ever generated that turns an entire planet to smoking ash?

    It's a thought, but to what end? What planet would he want to destroy and why? [face_thinking] Certainly the power of Zonama Sekot could be harnessed to accomplish such a task though. Sekot is probably the most deadly superweapon that's ever existed, when you think about it.

    Even if she didn't have much of a role, I like Cyra. I wonder if we will see her again.

    Outlook is doubtful on that one :(

    And now with the transfer of galactic power to Coruscant, I'm wondering if Malig has set up an even creepier base somewhere?

    Good question. And if so, what about his sweet apartment on Denon?

    Anakin and Tahiri still have problems? NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    You didn't really think everything would be worked out off-screen did you? :p

    Eagerly awaiting the next chapter!

    It will be up on Friday... [face_devil]

    Thanks for reading and replying :D





    shahid_chestro: good chapter wes.

    Thank you :)

    liked Anakin's choice of Names : Bail lars.... he does know that they both suffered deaths at the hand of bad guys , right ???

    Yeah, that's pretty ominous, isn't it? [face_thinking] Of course, it was the fake name Anakin used in Conquest, shortly before his death in Star by Star as well...

    i liked the action in this chapter... made me feel like i was reading Aaron allston...
    Kudos for using Jaden Korr also.


    Thanks :D Allston has some pretty badass action scenes, so high-praise indeed.

    one question: is jacen going to 'claim' Hapes in the name of Raithians (technically, he is still their King )

    He sort of did that in The Lands of the Dead. Last we saw of Hapes, Jacen had taken a Raithian Fleet there to defeat the forces Ta'a Chume had rallied, killed her, and taken control of the Consortium. Anyway, it will certainly come up in this fic.

    good update and please include me in your PMs(i didnt get the PM for this chapter )

    Oh, sorry about that. Not sure how that happened [face_blush] I'll be sure to send you one this Friday :D

    Thanks again for reading and replying :D





    L0B0: Classic. For a minute there, I lost track of sitting in front of a monitor simply reading about the rescue, and actually felt as if I was right there hurtling through the skylanes of Coruscant in the midst of the fight.

    Aw, thanks [face_blush] I'm glad you enjoyed it so much.

    One of your better action sequences for sure, and that is saying something.

    Gotta pull out all the stops for this one. This is it :p

    The galaxy may be doomed, but at least with Wedge back in action whatever happens next ought to be more interesting.

    Well, we know Wedge can't die, so I would think wherever he is at any given time means the people are him will be safe at least :p

    Anakin seems to have thoroughly reconsidered his priorities, and that can only be a good thing for the time being

    It's one of the things that makes Malig so awesome and scary. ;)

    Ha, I was just kidding. What Malig has in mind is far worse than destroying a planet. Corrupting the Force into the dark side and the entire galaxy into a Malachor or Korriban? That is the most diabolically evil plan a Star Wars villain has ever cooked up, and the scariest thing is, Malig is well on his way to doing that, with Sekot, the Sith'ari (?) and the Reckoner.

    And of course, creating a Force storm is not Malig. Twisting a living Force-sensitive planet to his will and then having aforementioned living planet destroy another planet? If Malig was to destroy a planet, that's how he'd do it. [face_devil]

    Malig's lair, and his hut on Apollyon, was perfect, so if he does set up base on Coruscant, I hope it's twice as creepy. :p

    No one's gullible enough to think that. :p

    Awesome.

    The pleasure was all mine. :D

    Yeah, he might qualify. Although he was too much of a sneaky git to really get how ironic many things were which happened. :-B

    Darth_Dreadwar: It's one of the things that makes Malig so awesome and scary.

    Also: he wears a black cloak [face_worried]

    Ha, I was just kidding. What Malig has in mind is far worse than destroying a planet. Corrupting the Force into the dark side and the entire galaxy into a Malachor or Korriban? That is the most diabolically evil plan a Star Wars villain has ever cooked up, and the scariest thing is, Malig is well on his way to doing that, with Sekot, the Sith'ari (?) and the Reckoner.

    I agree. I think the question is, what is it he wants to do with all this dark side energy once he creates this massive nexus? [face_thinking]

    And of course, creating a Force storm is not Malig. Twisting a living Force-sensitive planet to his will and then having aforementioned living planet destroy another planet? If Malig was to destroy a planet, that's how he'd do it.

    That would be pretty cool... well, except for the people on the destroyed planet, of course.

    Malig's lair, and his hut on Apollyon, was perfect, so if he does set up base on Coruscant, I hope it's twice as creepy.

    I bet it has a jacuzzi.

    Awesome.

    Thanks again :D






    Magnuskn: Eh, I don't know. I just thought it would nice for her to pop up later to proclaim that "Everything I thought I knew was wrong!"

    Nom Anor is my hero :p






    Spike: Great update YK

    To the Outlander in Attack of the Clones or to your own evenings, Spike? :p Neither one would surprise me 8-}

    Diamond: oooo good chapter.

    Thank you :)

    Good to hear, cause there's lots of Jedi working together moments in this story :D

    Looking forward to the next!

    Should be ready to go tomorrow.

    Thanks so much for reading and replying :D






    New post tomorrow. I hope you guys like it :)

    And Revan's mask. ;)

    Hmmm, I thought corrupting the Force to the dark side and destroying the Jedi's balance (and restoring the Force to it's natural state according to him) was his be all and end all... [face_thinking]

    It would still be cool. [face_devil] :p

    Awesome! :D

    Oh yeah [face_mischief]

    Hmmm, I thought corrupting the Force to the dark side and destroying the Jedi's balance (and restoring the Force to it's natural state according to him) was his be all and end all...

    Perhaps it is. I think I remember him saying to Jacen something in the vein of "power without purpose is meaningless." This nexus is going to give him an incredible reserve of power. I wouldn't be surprised if there's something else Darth Malig wants to do with it than simply create it.

    It would still be cool.

    [face_laugh]




    New post will be up in a bit :)

    Chapter 5: Lure

    The Witch glided soundlessly through the twisted forest as though she was a part of it, weaving between rigid branches without disturbing them or the array of leaves that sprouted from their fingers and dipping her feet into the damp grasses without matting them or leaving any indentations in the soil beneath. She had lived there all her life, traveled its dense terrain since she was old enough to walk, and survived solely on what the forest provided.

    Every tree was her landmark, every creek identifiable by the sound of their purling waters. There were no surprises waiting for her at the crest of a hill or the bend of a stream.

    This was her territory.

    She was being followed and she knew it.

    The morning was cold and so overcast nothing could be seen above the trees except for gray. There was no trace of division in the solid ceiling of clouds save for a few tendrils of darkness bleeding through where the condensation had grown heavier. They were stubborn clouds that refused to rain or even move, but appeared to have swollen too densely to merely lounge in the sky. A light fog hung in the air from treetops to roots, drowning the world in front of the Witch in a frosty haze.

    She was a comely woman despite her dour expression, with golden skin and a lissome, athletic frame. Her blue eyes were alert and narrowed sharply into what might have been a permanent glower above a small nose and unsmiling mouth. Crowning her high forehead were bundles of long, wheat-blonde hair knotted in thick braids, some of which were swirled into a larger tail at the back of her head while the others hung loosely down her bare shoulders. Her taut form was wrapped in a sleeveless rancor-hide tunic that provided light, but durable armor and a homespun brown skirt which had been tattered by a combination of swift movements and sharp branches. Farther down her long legs, a pair of calf-high leather boots protected her feet as though they had been molded to them.

    Where no such protection existed, scars lashed her well-toned arms and thighs, many of which appeared new and raw pink. In the midst of these scratches, strapped just below the hem of the skirt on the Witch's right thigh was a leather scabbard that sheathed a large, nasty-looking dagger, and strung over one shoulder was a long spear that had been fashioned out of sharpened stone and Dathomiri renwood.

    The Witch emerged from a thicket with a predator's grace and stalked forward into a section of forest where the dew-beaded grass was patchy, allowing more of Dathomir's terra firma to peek through. She ducked beneath a low-hanging branch and was moving farther into the mist when something on the ground snatched her piercing gaze.

    The dirt before her was not mud, as it hadn't rained in days, but the moisture in the fog had gone a long way towards softening the soil. She squatted down so that she was sitting on the backs of her heels and examined the aberration. There, indented in the cool dirt, was a pair of footprints?or rather, one whole footprint and a crescent-shaped heel of another incomplete print.

    They were the imprints of boot soles?almost certainly a man's given their size, with a fairly long stride if the spacing between them was any indication.

    And he was an outsider.

    Even the males on Dathomir had been trained not to leave tracks.

    In a single practiced motion the Witch shrugged the spear strap off of her shoulder and the weapon fell into her hand where she was crouched.

    He was near?she could feel it.

    She pivoted slowly, remaining crouched and ready to spring in attack at the first sign of danger while her gaze swept her surroundings with the point of her spear, searching for her pursuer in the mist. The trills of insects and caws of vine ravens seemed distant and almost ghostly in the fog. The only rustling she detected was the light pattering of the misted wind against the fluttering leaves.

    The Witch frowned, but remained alert, scanning?

    First!

    Oops, second. :oops:

    Great chapter! Nice to see Jaina and Dathomir again. I feel like I haven't seen them in a long time. Of course, we haven't actually seen Dathomir before in Legacy of the Sith. ;)

    Interesting about the Raithians though. I'm presuming they got the Nightsisters on their side, but how did they know who to strike?

    And the Witches rock as always. Force-sensitives who call Force powers spells, wield spears and ride Rancors. Awesome. :cool:

    THIRD!

    :eek::oops: Great, Jaina. Just great. you led them all into a trap, do you realize this?

    Even if Anakin gets there in time, whats to stop the Nightsisters and Lura V from killing all of you?

    I hate to say this, bu the next time Wrev has a bad feeling, listen to him. It will be better for all.

    Great post, Yobi. Can't wait for more.
