    Hey everyone! Well, I've been unsuccessful with getting people to read attempted longer fan fics, so maybe this JA short story will attract more attention...here goes nothing!
    ---------------------------------------------

    Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn sat in intense concentration, hunched over the worktable. He and his padawan, Obi-Wan Kenobi, were in the section of the Jedi Temple reserved for the construction of lightsabers. Qui-Gon, in an unfortunate accident on their last mission, had tripped over his robe and dropped his into a pool of water....when it was on. As you can imagine, the saber sparked incredibly and then shorted out, never to be activated again. As if that wasn't humiliating enough, his Padawan felt the need to remind him of this every 5 seconds. Obi-Wan sat idly on the floor beside his Master, twirling his saber in plain view of Qui-Gon, smiling and looking off into space. Qui-Gon glared at him.

    "Would you STOP that." Obi-Wan was all innocence.

    "Stop what Master?" he asked with blue eyes at their widest. "Whatever am I doing?"

    Rather than fuel Obi-Wan's torture-the-Master fire, he gave him one more heated glance, and turned back to his work. He was almost done assembling the new saber, but manipulating the tiny tools needed for the intricate circuitry was no small feat.

    "Since you're almost done with that Master, I'll just go ahead and call the supply shop and order you some new robes...shorter ones of course. We wouldn't want a repeat incident now would we?"

    Closing his eyes and counting silently to ten, Qui-Gon refused to answer the boy.

    "Really, Master. There's no need to get so upset. I'm only trying to help." Obi-Wan continued with barely repressed mirth in his voice.

    That did it. "Padawan." the tall Master said through clenched teeth. "If you want to maintain the use of ALL of your external digits, especially your thumbs, you will realize that I need QUIET to finish this."

    "Master!" Obi-Wan replied, eyes still filled with barely supressed laughter. "That sounded like a threat made out of anger. Anger is of the Dark Side!"

    Choosing to ignore that last comment, he made one final adjustment, double-checked that the focusing crystals and the Sullustan emeralds (to give the saber it's green glow) were in place, and snapped the casing shut. All that was left was to power it, and Qui-Gon opened his mouth to say something to Obi-Wan, when he heard another familiar voice.

    "Well Qui-Gon Jinn, fancy meeting you here! What brings you to the lightsaber building portion of our little Temple? Surely yours isn't damaged?" said an all too cheerful Mace Windu.

    Qui-Gon sent a scathing glance at his apprentice. "I, uh...just...uh..well, it's a funny story actually."

    Obi-Wan could contain it no longer. "He dropped his in a puddle of water on our last mission, WHILE IT WAS ACTIVATED! HAHAHAHAHAHA!"

    "That boy is dead." Qui-Gon thought, as Mace and his apprentice rolled on the ground in fits of uncontrollable laughter.

    "Some venerable Jedi Master you turned out to be." Qui-Gon said to Mace, acid dripping from his every word. "Council Member indeed."

    Mace wiped his eyes. "Oh...I'm sorry Qui-Gon. But you have to admit, it is pretty funny. I mean...mppphhh (trying to contain his laughter) you...hehe...YOU DROPPED IT IN WATER AND IT SHORTED OUT!" With this both he and Obi-Wan were reduced once again to hysterical laughter. Qui-Gon just stood there hopelessly, staring at the ridiculous image of his longtime friend and the boy who had become dearer than any son could be to him, as they rolled on the ground. Suddenly, an idea popped into his head.

    Smiling evilly he said in silken tones to his apprentice. "You know Obi-Wan, the day might come when YOU might need a replacement saber...considering you've only been through the meditation process ONCE...I'd say that you might benefit from participating in it once again."

    Obi-Wan stopped laughing immediately. "Master...but..that process takes days, and I have classes to attend, lightsaber practi

    Sassy Obi-Wan, tormenting his Master that way.

    I enjoyed that JMAaron! Especially that Qui-Gon gets back at both apprentice and friend.

    Jedi Master Aaron-

    Looks like these stories are pretty popular. I laughed and laughed when I read this one. Maybe you could keep using this thread for further short humorous JA stories on the making of good lightsabers.
