Why Palpatine Fell to the Dark Side by TigerofRobare Disclaimer: I do not own Star Wars or anything else that might find its way in here. Summary: A collection of vignettes reveal several conjectural ways Palpatine became the evilist person in the Galaxy. #1: Summer was approching in beautiful Theed, capital of Naboo, school was almost out, and a young boy about thirteen standard years of age was was walking home with a chip the size of Yavin on his shoulder. He was known at school as "that Goth tranny" because he like to dress all in black robes--even during the hottest weather. His name was Palpatine, Asmodeus Palpatine. He was angry because his father had decreed that he needed to get a job for the summer. Unfortunently, all the jobs had been taken; the last by a high school senior named Naberrie. "Sithspit on Naberrie and all her descendents," Palpatine cursed. Then he tripped over the hem of his robe and fell to the sidewalk. Some kids he knew from school laughed at him. It made him even angrier. When he got home his mom was already there. "How as the job hunt?" she asked. "Terrible. Everyone at school told them that I was 'angry,'" Asmodeus explained. "I guess they wouldn't like me when I'm angry." "Well," Mom said, "it's time to turn that frown upside down! I found a job for you." Palpatine was not enthusiastic. "What?" "Babysitting! Isn't it exciting! Mr. and Mrs. Plaugeis are going out tonight and need someone to take care of junior." "Ugh," Asmodeus said. He was really angry now. He begin to focus his anger, turn it into hatred. People would suffer, starting with his teddy gungan, then his action figures, then his hamster, then maybe Mr. Plaugeis (who was rumored to be fantastically wealthy and his house was reputed to be haunted). Palpatine suddenly tapped into a source of power he never new existed before. It was addictive. I have no wife nor child, young one. Agree and I will teach you control over this power you are experiencing for the first time. We could do great things together, you and I. Just know that we'll start off with the basics first, like baking evil cookies and sneering a fluffy animals. Do you agree? "Great! I love kids." Finis. Next Update: Palpy loses his magic dragon.
