    Great post, Copazie! :D

    "Boom." Boba Fett smirked as the brilliant flash of the explosion reflected off of his visor.

    "No more droids." Codo responded, he almost sounded regretful. "Now what are we gonna shoot at?"

    "Cheer up son, I'm sure there are other things on this blasted station that will try to kill us."

    Yoda led his eight companions through a maze of hallways. With the Chu'unthor in power saving mode, most of the ships systems were disabled when not in use. Lights flickered into existence before the group as they triggered sensors within the ship. Yoda walked briskly, despite his age, and left many to wonder what he was up to. To those who knew him best, however, the answer was obvious. At last he came to a halt, before a hatch where he placed his small, four fingered hand upon an access plate. The hatched hissed open to reveal a large chamber shrouded in darkness. As they passed through the threshold the lights flickered, dimly, then steadily increase in intensity to reveal a very well equiped gymnasium. Muscle toning equipment, balance beams, parallel bars, aerobic fitness machines, and toward the back, some sparring mats and.....
    ....LightSabers!

    "Thought it time, I did, that we should re-unite with our most trusted allies." stated Yoda sagely.

    "I thought something didn't feel right..." said Solo, reflexively looking to his waist where, sure enough, he lacked a lightsaber. ".. felt like something was missing."

    "I can't believe I didn't notice immediatley that I was unarmed." replied Skywalker.

    "You aren't the only one Anakin.." reassured Obi-wan.

    They all moved excitedly to the other end of the chamber, and gaped at the extensive selection of lightsabers before. Yoda ambled to the end of the row, pressed a button on the underside of the shelf, and retrieved one of his old spare lightsabers. Now, he felt whole again. The others began to choose what was most suited to them. Anakin Solo had never seen this many lightsabers in one place before. He walked along the massive display and studied several that caught his eye. Some of the sabers here were definitley designed for non-humans. Some sabers were intracately designed, others were utilitarian and plain and yet others...

    "WHOAH!! What the? COOL!!" Anakin had never seen anything quite like it before, it was so simple, yet many of the best ideas often were. "Why did I never think to build a saber like this?" He held up his new weapon of choice, a double bladed-lightsaber...

    Qui-gon and Obi-wan rolled their eyes.

    "What?" Anakin asked into the dead silence.

    A double bladed lightsaber would be something Anakin would get excited about. Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon probably aren't too thrilled though, I'd think they have bad memories about such weapons. ;)

    Thanks for posting! :D

    I want more though! Soon! :D


















    I'm so demanding aren't I? [face_devil] :D

    Loved Anakin Solo's reaction to the blade and his remark to Qui and Obi.

    Guess someone's going to have to tell little Ani 'bout the Battle of Naboo? ;) But I like that Anakin likes the double blade.

    It took a great deal of getting used to, but to Anakin the effort was well worth it. He took the saber through a few standard manuvers. As he had countless times at the Yavin Academy, he visualized an adversary to spar against. Many students did this to warm up before sparring against a real opponent.

    Many of the techniques he had learned however, could not be applied to use with a double bladed saber. A few time he came close to injuring himself. He took some time to think it through. He then realized slight modifications to those techniques could make many of them applicable. He stayed focused, while concentraiting on what both blades were doing. As some of the other Jedi watched on, he slowly began devloping his own style.

    Despite his age, he already had quite a bit of combat experience against the Vong. A weapon like the one in his hands now could prove to be very effective versus an Amphistaff. Obi-wan and Qui-gon were still observing with a sense of unease. Yoda noticed this, and as the other Jedi began sparing with eachother, Yoda pulled the youthful Jedi aside...

    "Yes Master Yoda?"

    "With me walk a bit, will you?"

    "Sure. Are you feeling better?"

    "Much, thank you." which was true, but he knew he was still not fully recovered. "Impressed I am, with how quickly adapted you have, to your newfound saber."

    "Thank you master, but I have to admit I've almost cut myself in half three times already."

    Yoda chuckled. "More a danger to yourself, than your enemies, do you feel?" Yoda looked up curiously.

    "At the moment, yes." Replied Anakin as they left the Gymnasiun and began walking, once again along the empty cooridors of the ancient ship. "Think I'm geeting the hang of it though. I'm sure it will be well worth it once things start to heat up."

    "Double bladed sabers, for many years, were used by Jedi Masters as training tools. Helped it did, to hone reflexes and awareness. Exceptional in saberplay, Jedi needed to be, to face a Master who weilded this weapon. Greater still, to use one themselves, and live. Abandonded, the Jedi Order did, the use of these, eventually. Too dangerous, they were deemed. Many Masters, over time, hurt seriously themselves. Killed a few Jedi were, who attempted to weild them unskillfully..."

    "You don't think I'm ready to use it then?" Anakin cut in, resigned. All hope he had of using it against the Vong vanished.

    "Not yet," then Yoda grinned. "a few more weeks training you need, I think. Of your skills there is no question. Handle the resonsibility, you can." Anakins eyes lit up, as he realized that not only could he keep his new toy, but Master Yoda had just subtley paid him a complement! Yoda had always been a strict master, but he didn't enjoy being hard on his students. It was just necesary. Yoda's favorite part of being a Jedi Master, was the rare occasion he could give a student an unexpected, yet well deserved gift. "Suggest I do, your training begin with a single blade lit. More time to adjust you need, to the longer hilt. Provide more leverage, and speed it can. Requires a very different style, your weapon does, but make it up yourself you need not. Help you I can, Yes..."

    As they walked down yet another cooridoor, Yoda went on about the history of the weapon's style. It originated with the most ancient of weapons... the stick, or more appropiately known as the quartet-staff. Anakin listened attentively, eager to learn and impressed with Yoda's experience. Every now and then, Anakin would stop to ask a few questions, but Yoda didn't mind.. he really enjoyed and encouraged his students to ask questions. For the next several days Yoda's lessons were a combination of lecture, and hands on application. Using his walking stick as a miniature staff, he walked Anakin through many techniques, as his new apprentice mimmicked his movements. Yoda then realized how much he truly missed teaching.

    The best teachers are those who love to teach. I like how Yoda has easily moved into such a role with Anakin.

    The easiest students to teach are the ones who are eager to learn. Anakin seems to be just the type.
    Can't wait to see Anakin put his new toy to the test and to see the reactions from his fmily. :D
