    The Tale of Darth Vaders Son



    Luke Skywalker had opened himself completely to the Force. In a sense the Force had become him and he had become the Force as it washed through his body, cleaning it of the stain of the Sith-apprentice poison and guiding his arms in his fight with the lightsaber. His blade always knew where to be, thanks to the sense of precognition the all-binding energy-field provided for him. He also knew for the next moment, where NOT to be, because it might put him in harms way.

    That was it, Miney realized. The greatest strenght of a Jedi was his faith in the Force. By surrendering themself to the all-encompassing energy-field the Jedi were able to do things ordinary mortals couldn't. Like cleaning their bodies from lethal poisons or defending themself in a fight with lightsabers. For the Force was created by all life and in a way it was life itself, so it was logical, that it would protect life in return. And unlike the Jedi a Sith was unwilling to give up control. Unwilling or mentally unable. What meant, that he or she had to be aware of their actions all the time.

    That was it.

    Jedi used the Force for defense, were reacting. What meant, that the initiative was with Miney, not Luke Skywalker. But while she was able to attack the Jedi-Master, she wasn't able to overcome his defenses so she had to go around them. The Force allowed Luke Skywalker to predict her attacks and to evade and parry them, but that only counted for the direct threats against him. Just that looking into the future during a fight by surrendering to the Force wasn't precognition in the classical sense, it was more of allowing a puppet-master with superior senses to pull ones strings faster.

    "Precognition is a double-cutting sword." Miney thought grimly. "And nowhere is said the puppet-master is perfect. Or able to communicate with us on the same level."

    Again she remembered the lessons of her Master.

    "A lot of beings make the mistake of viewing the Force as a god, as a deity. This isn't true for the majority of ordinary beings, because in their daily lives the Force doesn't seem to play a role of significance. But many force-sensitive people consciously or subconsciously equal the Force with an all-powerful and omniscient entinity. They say "May the Force be with you" or "I'm following the will of the Force" and by that build entire religions and superstitions around a natural phenomenem. It is on one side the attempt to bring an ordering and planning hand into an otherwise chaotic universe and on the other side admitting, that their understanding of the Force is incomplete."

    "The Force might keep you out of harms for the next second. But it doesn't know, where the harm will come from in ten. The future is always in motion." Miney thought.

    And with that thought in mind, she changed her pattern of attack in a way that wouldn't be recognized by the Jedi-Mastert.

    Or so she hoped.

    ---

    Luke Skywalker could feel the battle take its toll on him.

    It wasn't physical exhaustion, not yet, but opening oneself to the Force and letting it flow through you always came with a price. Like a river channeled through a bed made of sandstone. In the short term there was no difference noticable, but every litre of water took a small corn of sand with it. Not like Yoda or Obi-Wan having their whole being including physical body becoming one with the Force, but being transformed piece by piece. Once Luke had realised this he had come to the conclusion that a Jedi accepted this willingly as a consequence of who and what he was, but darksiders and Sith were another matter. At times the Jedi-Master had come to wonder if it wasn't the use of the Dark Side itself, that had caused Palpatine to look as rotten as he had, but his resistance to the changes the use of the Force brought with it.

    At the moment such questions were of an academical nature, however.

    His opponent might be shorter than him and - being a femal

    Good fight scene. Miney's come a long way from the frightened little girl Lucan came across.

    Looking forward to the next update! [face_peace]
