I myself have been inspired by a couple and may write it up later on in between my two other fan fics I'm busy writing. Right now I am writing just 100 situations, but I plan on expanding it to more and posting them here.So without further adieu, here is the first 50 reposted and then the next 25...Table of Contents:Prompts 1-50Prompts 51-75Prompts 76-100Prompt 101 PhobiaPrompt 102 AddictPrompt 103 DancePrompt 104 MissingPrompt 105 CruisingPrompt 106 CareenPrompt 107 PsychicPrompt 108 InsomniacPrompt 109 BathPrompt 110 SecretPrompt 111 ComaPrompt 112 SuicidePrompt 113 TraitorPrompt 114 LoyalPrompt 115 Miracle - Wartime Miracles [Military Challenge] Separate ThreadPrompt 116 CriminalPrompt 117Prompt 118------------- 01: Tired After eighty-three years of life he was exhausted and was looking forward to living the rest of his years in retirement once he had managed to complete his master's last task for him (to bring the arrogant Jedi Knight, Anakin Skywalker, closer to the Darkside and well on his way to becoming his master's newest apprentice) only then could he finally rest in peace and reap the rewards of thirteen long years of hardship and darkness on his soul, but when the duel with the falling Jedi had finally drawn to an end with azure and crimson blades at his neck and his master's “Do it!” ringing in his ears, did he find the irony in his master's promise of retirement. 02: Back Alley When Dooku and Qui-Gon had chased the wily con-man into a dark and gritty back alley, neither Master nor Padawan expected the confident laughter from the cornered Sullustan when they demanded for his surrender once it became apparent that the alien had ran down a dead end, except that the dead end had not trapped the con-man at all like they had thought and instead turned out to be a trap for them when Dooku turned to face several thugs filling the entrance of the back alley. 03: Sunrise The first light of the new dawn seen from atop of the Jedi Temple was well worth waking up at the odd hour in the morning and a practice that Dooku always took time for whenever he returned to Coruscant and the Temple (no matter what mood he was in and what pressing matters he had to attend to for that day) just to see the new day rising in all its golden and crimson splendor and which became something he could not break himself of doing, even seven decades later as he stood atop of the run down industrial building in The Works far above the Sith's secret lair. 04: Late “You're late,” declared an irritable and tied up Dooku as a long-limbed fifteen year old boy, carrying in his arms what looked like a hatchling of some dragon-bird, came tumbling into the Onderon rebel tent, however Dooku's irritation soon gave way to surprise when a dark shadow flew overhead (which quickly grew furious and vicious with the rebels when they had opened fire on the much larger and very wild dragon-bird); and when Dooku looked at his Padawan accusingly, he only received a cheeky grin before the boy dropped the hatchling in his master's lap and proceeded to untie the man. 05: Son The only real tragedy of the Jedi was the fact that they were not permitted to form attachments with other beings, to do so would bring a dangerous risk to their self-control and focus and place the guardians in situations that could compromise their missions or the safety of the Republic and thus are forced to live lonely lives; but for Jedi Master Dooku, he would be damned to allow that one tenant of the Order to cost him the life of the only man he considered a son to be condemned to a life of servitude on some backwater world in the Outer Rim because the Jedi Council would not send a team to go rescue him, so he took it in his own hands (with the help of Jedi Tahl as well) and stealing into the night a shuttle to find his former Padawan. 06: Hot The Master watched with a shake of his head as his young Padawan Learner stripped himself nearly bare of his entire vestments and robe to dive into the lukewarm water of the oasis just so he could escape the heat of the desert, and a small gasp and giggle beside him drew his attention away to the young woman they had been tasked to protect and who asked a second later with a mischievous look in her eyes, “Will you not join him, Master Jedi?”, and Dooku felt, at that moment, like she was visually undressing him to see what he might look like under his own sweat drenched robes. 07: Friend Dooku could count the number of true friends he's had in his life on just one hand, and when he learned of that friend having fallen to a Sith Lord, did he finally feel truly alone in the galaxy and thus no longer felt that he needed to remain with the Jedi Order any longer; so when he tossed his lightsaber at the feet of the Jedi Council and renounced his commission as a Knight of the Order, he did not look back at those who had considered him a friend. 08: Floor The hard mat was growing irritatingly annoying to the young Padawan as he landed, face down upon it once more after he had his arse handed to him for who knew how many times that morning during his sparring match with the little green troll that was his master, but rather than remain on the floor and yield to the older being, Dooku stubbornly climbed to his feet and called his lightsaber back to him and with a puff of air to blow back his braid, he met the disappointed eyes of his master and said in a determined tone boarding on pride and anger, “Again.” 09: Cheat When Lorian Nod had stolen the Sith Holocron from the Archives, Dooku knew exactly why the young Initiate had done it (the fear of being sent away to the Service Corps had also been on his mind as his thirteenth year drew closer), and he would have pitied his friend for trying to cheat his way into an apprenticeship if the young boy had not accused him of stealing the ancient relic instead. 10: Think Qui-Gon Jinn was a bright Padawan, this much Dooku learned in their first year when he had tasked the child to come up with a solution to a minor problem he had to resolve, but as the years passed and the boy grew, Dooku began to wonder if perhaps that one problem had drained the boy's ability to think at all when he found him waist deep in a bog, clinging onto a very thin branch that looked ready to snap and so Dooku stood on the solid path with his arms crossed and said; “Did not Master Yoda teach you to think before you leapt, Padawan?” 11: Disgust As he lay on the cold, black floor in the industrial building deep within the automated part of the city planet, his focus completely gone as the pain wracking spasms caused by Sith Lightning jerked his body, the Count of Serenno and apprentice to the last Sith Lord felt disgusted at his inability to defend himself from his master's most powerful attack and began to wonder if perhaps he had made a mistake in pretending to accept the politician's offer to become his student and partner in the Grand Plan of the Sith, for how would he be able to defeat such power if he could not defend himself from it? 12: Shelter There was a time when Dooku had called the Jedi Temple a safe haven and Coruscant his homeworld, but as he stared down at the city planet while the battle between Republic and Separatist forces raged all around his ship, he knew that he would never find either one a shelter for him again like he had long ago after returning from a harrowing mission or a long trip in the Outer Rim, for he was now nothing but a traitor to the people of this world and a fallen brother to the ancient order that had been his only family since he was four. 13: Borrow When Qui-Gon had finally fully grown, both Master and Padawan often found themselves borrowing articles of clothing from each other whenever they were on a mission that caused some part of their attire to no longer be serviceable to them (or for some other reason or another), and on one such mission both men found themselves quickly changing into the others vestments and robes just so they could trick the primitive bandits that hunted them into chasing the Master rather than the injured Padawan; and once they had finished, Qui-Gon looked upon Dooku and commented with a cheeky grin, “Come along, Padawan.” 14: Chair He had to give the boy credit for being stubbornly persistent in his quest to humiliate and defeat the one man who had, in turn, humiliated and defeated him a year prior, that Dooku found himself resorting to trickery just so he could keep his head and make off with the Supreme Chancellor and as he threw chair after chair, some very expensive looking gold platter and dinnerware in which two of the forks embedded themselves into Skywalker's mechanical arm, the only thing that was now between him and the boy's growing anger was a chair, of all things, rather than his skill with the lightsaber like he preferred and this irritated the Sith Lord to no end. 15: Alter The Force was more powerful than he could have ever possibly imagined, so when the ancient Sith Holocron spoke of the Force being able to alter life, even one's own, to whatever he wanted within the limits of the lifeform, Darth Tyranus found himself wanting to know more for he had a desire to be young again and only in his youth (he was absolutely certain of this belief) could he have the strength and power to defeat his master without an apprentice to aid him, but when he inquired and demanded the gatekeeper of the holocron to tell him how, the ancient Sith inscribed onto the device simply laughed and mocked, “A Jedi seeking immortality?” and this angered the old Sith to the point that he crushed the secret into oblivion. 16: Peace “There is no emotion, there is peace,” he recited the mantra for the hundredth time that evening as he attempted to meditate, but for the hundredth time peace eluded him as angry thoughts of what the Council had done to his former Padawan invaded his mind and crushed every serene feeling he had into a thousand pieces so that all that was left was the bitterness and grief he had felt upon hearing the news of Qui-Gon's passing and an insidious idea slowly creeping into his mind as he toyed with the idea of killing the Sith Master so he could avenge the man that had been a son to him in all but blood, which soon turned to the idea of seeking revenge against the Council instead by seeking out said Sith Master to learn from. 17: Beach There were two things he had been able to remember of his homeworld, Serenno, during his life as a Jedi, one of those things being Serennian roses in a garden he remembered playing in as a child and the other were the calming shores of the beach to the west in which he recalled picking up a seashell to listen with fascination as an ocean roared from within it; but when he stepped out onto the marble stonework as he disembarked from the shuttle, new memories of a four year old child assaulted him as he gazed upon the vast grounds of his family estate. 18: True “Traitor,” the Padawan of his Padawan had called him moments before after Dooku had tried to persuade the young man to join his cause and although he had spoken the honest to the Force truth about everything he had said, Obi-Wan Kenobi refused to believe him that a Sith Lord had found it's way into power within the very establishment that the Jedi Knight swore to defend and Dooku truly wished that his friend and the young man's master, Qui-Gon, was here with him for he now understood that it would only be that fallen Jedi Master's word in which Kenobi would believe in as the truth. 19: Crazy Of all the hair-brain ideas that his friend, Lorian, could have come up with to entertain themselves during the changing of the week before they had to resume their studies again, Dooku would have said 'no' to his latest one if he had known that it would result in them ending up in a trash compactor at the bottom of the Temple with an amused Master Yoda smiling down at them as they climbed out and saying, much to his embarrassment, “Discovered a wonderful smell, you two have,” and from that day forward, Dooku swore he would not endure such humiliation again. 20: Love They had been in the Room of a Thousand Fountains when it had happened unexpectedly, and completely throwing the regal Jedi Master off guard because of it, that it would take him some time later to finally comprehend what exactly had happened between he and Madame Jocasta Nu after she had tenderly placed a loving kiss on his lips and he responded with a passion he had not realized had built up inside him forher. 21: New The two silvery hilt pieces enclosed the crimson crystal with a snap and a twist, and a weathered, elderly hand with long fingers slowly gripped from the air the newly completed lightsaber to be carefully turned over between both hands as intense brown eyes gazed upon the craftsmanship and as he did, Dooku could feel the power emanating from the artificial crystal within just before he thumbed the ignition switch and with the blood-red glow illuminating his dark surroundings and bathing him in the new light that both personified the new path he had stepped upon and the New Order he would help bring about to the galaxy, did he finally feel free of his old life. 22: Beggar He knew how strong Qui-Gon Jinn was in the Living Force and how that affinity often caused him to pick up a stray here and there on their missions, but to see several little beggars run up to the tall and compassionate Jedi Knight with smiles of joy and excitement at his return and asking for stories as they crowded him in a close ring of grubby hands and ill-kept rags, Jedi Master Dooku could not help but smile and accept this fact about his former Padawan and prayed that the Force would grant the Jedi a long life just so he could continue to bring such happiness, however briefly, to the children of a war torn society. 23: Sick Dooku hated the Healer's Ward with such a passion that when he had come down with the Iridonian Fever, he purposely neglected to inform anyone of his illness and digitally requested for a few days of downtime to recover in the secluded confines of his personal quarters, believing that he and the Force could deal with it; however after four days of misery and forgetting about the dinner date he had with a certain Archivist, it was a concerned Madame Nu who found him and admitted him to the Ward amidst much protesting and feverish nonsense. 24: Bewitching Dathomir was a planet he did not want to return to ever again and no crashed training ship, Master Yoda or even Jocasta could convince him to do so, especially after he found himself nearly enslaved by the strong willed witches riding armored rancors and one of them had tried to charm him into obedience and to her bed even though it was plainly obvious that Madame Nu had laid claim to him for his sake, and the only way he could get out of his predicament was to rescue Sister Talzin from a band of Nightsisters and promise her a lock of his hair. 25: Cancer The corruption within the Galactic Senate had festered for far too long that it had become a terminal cancer to the great establishment that he had loved and he knew that it could not be cleansed of it by conventional politics, so like a doctor, Count Dooku planned on taking a surgical knife to the Republic in order to remove that cancerous disease that was the Senate and his first step toward healing the galaxy would be to announce to that very same Senate of his and two thousand other systems of their intent to secede from the Galactic Republic, and with a confident smirk he stepped onto the holoplate and began his speech of secession, “Representatives of the Galactic Republic, I come before you today... 26: Pickpocket Although it was something he did not like to do, sometimes picking the pocket of some unsuspecting employee of a facility he was trying to get in to in order to solve the current mystery or rescue a person he was meant to be protecting, was an absolute necessity that he could live with; and when Komari Vosa, his latest padawan, had spotted him deftly filching the security card off of a Republic Senator so he could break into that man's office and find the files he needed to expose him, she nearly begged for him to teach her how to do it. 27: Reverse It was said that Jedi could not be chemically influenced and it was partly true when they were aware of what was happening to them and they had the Force to dispose of the intoxicating chemicals from their system, something, apparently, Komari Vosa had hoped he would not notice until he was well under the influence of the drug she had spiked his drink with, however when he had noticed that something was not right the moment his Padawan became inappropriately intimate with him and he was responding in a way he only reserved for Jocasta, he realized what his apprentice had done and thus purged himself of the aphrodisiac, and at that point his demeanor and character had undertaken such a reversal that if she had not pleaded for his forgiveness he would not have seen the fear he had instilled into her. 28: Deliver When he and Qui-Gon had accepted the Council's mission some years after Xanatos, of all the things he had expected to encounter on the long term undercover investigation into the assassination of House Vane's patriarch on Valahari, delivering the newborn son of Viscount Harko Vane and Elodore Vane in a mountain cabin, had not been among the things he thought he would be doing while protecting the royal family from the bounty hunters intent on finishing off what they had started, and when Elodore had offered him the chance to hold her son and name him, the regal Jedi Master was delivered speechless for a long time until he whispered to the squirming bundle in his arms his name, "Tofen." 29: Arrival Master Dooku disliked spaceports for the simple reason that they were always crowded, with the exception of the most remote star systems, and filled to the brim with alien species, of which only a handful he could name, trying to jostle about and reach their terminals, so that every time he arrived at one of these infernal places, he always exercised his position as a Jedi ambassador to get in and out of the places as quickly as possible before he could be accosted by the space goers demanding his help for some reason or another, however this one time he was not quick enough as a pair of Wookiees intercepted him and in their snarling and growling language, politely requested his assistance in helping them rescue their son from Trandoshan slavers before they could make off with him on their starship, and how could he refuse when the Living Force demanded him to help? 30: Fall He had never been tempted by the Darkside of the Force throughout his entire life (not even when he had nearly murdered Lorian Nod), so when he faced the very incarnation of that aspect of the Force and was given no choice except to turn or die, the Jedi Master that he had once been would have been appalled at how far he had fallen from grace and how deeply he willingly plunged into the darkness (and lying to himself that it was because he had been under the duress of Sith Lightning sapping his very strength and life from him). 31: Knife A lightsaber was a Jedi's life, but Dooku knew from experience that a Jedi could not depend on having a lightsaber at hand to save his life, so when he and his second Padawan found themselves saber-less, bound and imprisoned, the Jedi Master reached down into his dark boot and produced a thin vibrodagger from the hidden sheath inside and said to his surprised apprentice, "Always have a contingency weapon, Padawan." 32: Torn Dooku felt torn between his feelings for Viscountess Elodore Vane of Valahari, and his duty to both the galaxy and his master, so much so that when he gave Ventress her instructions, a part of him prayed to the Force that the Rattataki witch would fail in her task; and when the Viscountess discovered the truth months later and declared that he would forever be banished from Valahari on pain of death, the former Jedi Master and now Sith Lord admitted to himself that he was having regrets in serving Sidious and perhaps it was time for him to severe his ties and return home, if he could go home that is. 33: Danger The problem about being the Dooku and Qui-Gon team was that trouble always seemed to find them no matter where they went, who they were with, or what kind of mission they had undertaken; somehow they would anger some warlord or dignitary with their actions or diplomatic solutions and thus were often in danger of being assaulted by the current planet's most ruthless thugs brave enough to face a pair of Jedi, so much so that Master Dooku insisted that at least one of them remained alert when they left the star systems and that paranoia had never left him even after the Dooku and Qui-Gon team had been broken up with Qui-Gon's knighting. 34: Neutral "Master Dooku is considered a fair and just man when it comes to settling disputes between disagreeing parties, so you may rest assured, Senator Kalitrax, that he will remain neutral throughout this whole affair," explained the Senator of Bakura while said discussed Jedi stood off to the side with a cool expression and his arms folded into the sleeves of his cloak, waiting patiently for all parties involved to accept his presence and the help he could offer. 35: Mate There were times during the war he would admit to himself, and in front of no one, that he longed to return home to the familiarity of the grandiose halls and serene chambers of the Jedi Temple but not because he missed the comforting gardens and peaceful meditation rooms (something he could easily find replacements anywhere in the galaxy), but rather he missed the company of those that had been friendly acquaintances, crèche mates and her. 36: Fly “How come I never get to drive?” asked a perturbed eighteen year old Qui-Gon Jinn as he and Master Dooku climbed into the speeder, with Dooku taking the pilot seat and Qui-Gon reluctantly and disappointingly claimed his usual seat beside his master all the while watching the man as he waited for the answer and when Dooku had merged the vehicle into Coruscanti traffic, did he finally get that answer and it was not one he liked and retorted defensively, “How can I fly recklessly if you never let me drive?!” 37: Loud The Republic Senate had roared in outrage to Jedi Master Dooku's accusations and disgust with the corruption within their ranks and over the matter of how the many senators and representatives purposely used the Jedi Order to swell their own pockets with credits without a care for the men and women who faithfully served the Republic or the innocents whom they trampled upon, and if Dooku had thought the Senate had been incredibly loud, he had been mistaken when he had raised his own voice at the Jedi High Council hours later when they decreed he would be censored and confined to the Temple for a duration of six months or until the political mess he had caused with the Senate had quieted down. 38: Touch The two lightsaber duelists circled each other, sizing the other before the younger one twirled her twin blue blades in anticipation of the older man's first move, but her impatience and eagerness to start the duel already caused her to lose the match before she even knew it and as the master continued to be patient he was soon rewarded with an aggressive lunge from his student; and viridian green and cerulean blue clashed against each other in a swift but sharp dance of deadly grace for one, two, three strikes before the old man's green blade was just centimeters from touching the young woman's throat and her two blades held wide at either side of her, “This is why I dislike Jar'Kai, Padawan. It has no finesse and is easy to exploit with Makashi.” 39: Seek Count Dooku quietly strode into the Jedi Temple wearing the traditional robes of the Jedi, he made no eye contact with any of his former brethren (despite the fact that he had the hood hiding half of his face), and made his way through the halls toward the Jedi Archives while keeping his senses alert for any of the people he knew that would recognize his presence and in particular for the one person he did not wish to see this day even though he knew he would not be able to avoid her entirely once he stepped into her domain and sought to delete the information he was after, for once he encountered her he knew he might not be able to bring himself to hurt her when she started questioning why he was there. 40: Argue When Qui-Gon had finally hit the rebellious stage in his teenage years, Master Dooku swore he was sorely tempted at times to embrace the Darkside and put the fear of authority back into the boy if it meant avoiding the many arguments they shared on missions; today was no different as the regal Jedi Master watched as his Padawan stormed off in front of the delegates of Alderaan and leaving him fuming inside and pondering whether he could get away with murdering his own Padawan, but just as quickly as the sinister thoughts came, Dooku crushed them, reminding himself that he could never harm the boy regardless of how angry he was (besides, he would get back at the boy later for his disrespect in the form of making him escort the Alderaanian Prince to a gala). 41: Work The two padawans stared in dismay at the ruined training salon and battle droids before a growing Dooku sighed heavily and reached down for the bucket and brush and beckoned his friend and co-conspirator in this mess, Jocasta, to take up the other bucket and get started on cleaning the charred walls and floors, muttering all the while at his own stupidity for trying to be clever and get out of his chores so he could do something for a friend; but as the morning wore on and the work became tedious and his mood grew worse, he was embarrassingly shocked when said friend gave him a peck on the cheek and said quietly, “Thank you for trying.” 42: Sink An older Jedi Master Dooku and Jedi Knight Qui-Gon Jinn stood back to back with their lightsabers drawn, warily eying their opponents of the final tier for the Cresh bracket as they stepped out onto the arena mat, and Dooku was confident that they would win over Sora Bulq and his chosen partner and face the winners of the Grek bracket to win the Annual Lightsaber Tournament, but as Mace Windu stepped out onto the mat and ignited his purple bladed lightsaber and held it in a high guard, both Master and Knight glanced at each other with a sinking feeling, it was Qui-Gon who spoke first, “I have a bad feeling about this.” 43: Joke When Qui-Gon and his friends had tried to cheer him up after the failed mission to Anison, they were beside themselves on how to go about accomplishing it until one of them got the brilliant idea to tell him jokes and so, knowing he wasn't going to get rid of them easily, Dooku humored his Padawan and his friends as they sat around in the Room of a Thousand Fountains, half-listening to their ridiculous sense of humor until Qui-Gon performed a decent impression of Master Yoda walking with his cane and threatening to whack them with it if they didn't mind the Code, and although it did cause his lips to twitch slightly into a smile, it was only when the real Master Yoda had revealed himself behind the younglings (threatening to do the very same thing to them if they didn't make themselves useful elsewhere), that finally brightened his day long enough to make him smile. 44: Stuck Being stranded on a remote planet, inside a pirate-infested fortress and bound to two of his enemies was not his idea of how he planned on manipulating the galaxy into accepting their future Sith Masters; and when those two enemies started making barbs at his age and physical prowess, he was certain that the Force was a cruel mistress for sticking him with these two particular Jedi, “I would kill you both if I did not have to drag your bodies.” 45: Animal When he learned that the beast who had slain his Padawan had survived Obi-wan Kenobi, there was nothing in the galaxy at that moment that Dooku wanted more than to show that animal what a true master of the Force was capable of in a lightsaber duel and to avenge his fallen friend, so when Sidious had commanded him to deal with the returned Zabrak, he eagerly (perhaps too eagerly) agreed to take care of it personally despite the warnings his master gave him to not underestimate Maul; and when he finally faced the horned and tattooed nightmare, he deliberately and slowly drew his lightsaber into the traditional Makashi salute and guard and snarled, “This will be a day long remembered, monster.” 46: Pray He was not a religious man, not in the sense where persons believed in some higher intelligent entity, but as his twelve year old apprentice lay dying in his arms after a group of mercenaries hired by Srulla the Hutt had ambushed them in the streets of Caluula City, Jedi Knight Dooku found himself asking both the Force and whatever deities there might be in the Universe to spare his Padawan, even as he poured every ounce of the Force and strength into the boy to try and knit closed the blaster wound he had suffered, and desperately wished that the boy had not spoken for Dooku realized he was not ready to lose his first padawan, “There is no death, there is only the Force, Master Dooku.” 47: Kill The first time he had killed a person he had been fifteen and under the tutelage of Master Thame Cerulian and on a scholarly mission with Master Joyce D'Lur and her padawan Jocasta Nu, a mission that was suppose to be as simple (and rather boring up until the shooting started) as digging in the mud for the lost Jedi enclave, except someone neglected to tell the local raiders that and so after it was all over, a young Dooku found himself standing over the smoking remains of one of those raiders with a pale and sickly face with the urge to empty the contents of his stomach, but a friendly hand on his shoulder and a worried smile from his fellow Padawan kept him from embarrassing himself. 48: Light Here was his former master, telling him (in his own eccentric way of giving wisdom and teaching a lesson, so that it would lead the recipient to eventually draw the same conclusions that his master was trying to convey and make the student learn from their own wisdom), that the Dark was only quicker, easier than the Light, and as Master Yoda pretended to be a sinister being, which disturbed Count Dooku on so many levels, demanding to know what the Darkside could give him that the Light could not, the former Master knew, once more, that he was that Padawan again as he drew the conclusions that the Darkside could not give anything that which the Light already offered and had Kenobi and Skywalker not shown up when they had, Dooku was certain he would have accepted his Master's hand in friendship and trust. 49: Cold Ilum was unbearably cold and for the umpteenth time he wondered why the Jedi had to choose these crystal caves for their Padawans to find their lightsaber crystal in when there were plenty of similar caves throughout the galaxy and on much warmer planets than this place, and as he thought of the curiosity while standing within said cave looking for his own crystal, the answer came to him in the form of an apparition, "Only here the Force is strongest, youngling, as are your doubts and fears." 50: Affair He had a secret that none of the Jedi Council knew about, it wasn't a dirty secret like it normally would have been for a politician had he been one, but it was a secret nonetheless and just as scandalous amongst the Jedi as it would be for a Senator, for it was forbidden for Jedi, much less two, to have a secret affair between them and the two Jedi Masters involved did not care that they were breaking one of the highest tenants of their Order, because they felt their love was not wrong.
