    Title: A Series of Yoda drabbles this is
    Author: Kelia
    Characters: Yoda and various OC?s
    Timeframe: Will vary but most will be centered on Yoda as a youngling.
    A/N: This is my response to [link=http://boards.theforce.net/fan_fiction_resource/b10304/29939860/p1/?28]The Fourth UDC[/link]



    Flash in the pan


    Yoda closed his eyes and inhaled deeply as he immersed his entire being into the Force.

    ?You may begin.?

    In an instant, his lightsaber ignited and he began a furious series of parries and attacks. Keeping his eyes closed, he allowed the Force to guide him until his opponent landed flat on his back.

    He shut down his lightsaber and turned to an open-mouthed Master Knault.

    ?That..that?was?how old are you again??

    ?Twelve, I am,? Yoda answered, his voice twinged with worry. Had he done something wrong?

    ?Excellent,? Knault finished, quickly recovering his bearings.

    Yoda smiled and helped his opponent up.


    Out on a Limb


    ?Help!?

    Yoda?s head snapped up as he jumped to his feet.

    Four-year-old initiate Naren was standing under a tree, tears streaming down his cheeks.

    ?Hurt are you?? Yoda asked, his eyes carefully traveling over the Twi?lek?s body.

    ?No,? he cried pointing to a heavy limb above them where a tiny pitten sat, quietly watching the activity below.

    ?I can?t get him back down!? Naren cried.

    ?Relax, rescue your pet I will.?

    Extracting his claws, Yoda quickly scaled the tree, tucked the pitten under an arm and slid back down.

    ?Safe he is,? he smiled, handing the purring pet to Naren.


    Out of the Blue



    Master Quix yawned, taking a moment to stretch before opening the massive doors to the Jedi Temple.

    She hated the morning shift, standing guard against the curious citizens and occasional tourists who refused to respect the Jedi?s privacy.

    ?Why can?t everyone just leave us alone?? she thought, stepping outside and nearly tripping over the bundle at her feet.

    Quix gasped with surprise as she gazed down at the tiny creature with pointed ears contently sleeping. She had never seen such an odd baby before.

    She quickly glanced around and, not seeing anyone, gently picked up the creature and headed inside.


    Wet Behind The Ears


    ?Repeat after me.?

    ?After me repeat.?

    ?No,? Master Quix sighed. In the four years since discovering Yoda outside the Temple, she?d grown quite fond of the unique creature and jumped at every opportunity to teach him.

    His speech lessons, however, were proving to be taxing.

    ?Talk like me,? she tried again.

    ?Like me talk,?

    Quix groaned. ?You must learn to talk properly.?

    ?Talk properly you must learn.?

    Quix gapped at him for a moment before chuckling, ?you have your way of speaking and I have mine,? she paused. ?I?m sure you?ll keep the council on its toes through the years.?


    Heat of the Moment


    ?What are you, anyway??

    Yoda ignored the question, focusing on the tiny insects crawling through the grass by his feet.

    ?What?s the matter?? Thelcar taunted with a sneer, ?Don?t you know what kind of freak you are??

    Yoda?s hands clenched into fists.

    ?If curious you are,? he began in a tight voice, ?available records are in the archives to search through.?

    ?I ain?t -,?

    ?Then shut up you should.?

    ?Make me!? Thelcar challenged, reaching for his lightsaber.

    Yoda jumped to his feet, one clawed hand scratching Thelcar?s throat, scarring his vocal cords. ?Silent for a few weeks, you will be.?

    Well, the Order did try :p

    Glad you enjoyed.


    Jade_eyes: What a great load of material you can draw upon and/or invent... since Yoda is so longlived

    Indeed and I look forward to seeing what the muse comes up with :D


    VaderLVR64: ?Talk properly you must learn.?

    I?ve always wondered if Yoda thought it was everyone else who wasn?t speaking right :p


    earlybird-obi-wan: Lovely, eager waiting for the next five I am

    Thank you! [:D]

    I hope you enjoy them.


    Gkilkenny: The heat of the moment. Yoda needs to meditate on his use of his claws.

    Yes he does. And he will in time.

    Impossible

    Master Adras stopped short as he entered the crèche and found three year-old Yoda on the ground, sobbing uncontrollably.

    ?What?s the matter, youngling?? he asked, patting Yoda?s back.

    ?Weach dah starsip I can?t,? Yoda cried.

    Adras looked around, spotting the toy resting on the top of the two meter storage box.

    Gently lifting Yoda?s head, he said, ?you may never be able to reach the top of the shelf,? he began. ?But with the Force as your ally, you can always get what you want.?

    Yoda watched in amazement as Adras lifted his hand and brought the ship to them.?


    Unlikely


    Yoda sighed as he picked up the heavy volume of Jedi History. The relic known as a book hadn?t been used in over a thousand years, but were kept available in the archives.

    They were also kept on the highetst shelves, much to his chagrin. Barely suppressing ayawn, he sent the book flying towards the proper case, not noticing Master Jo?qan crossing the room.

    Whack!

    ?Okay are you?? Yoda gasped, rushing to his side.

    Jo?qan rubbed his sore forehead. ?I?m fine,? he assured Yoda. ?But I hope you don?t? have any plans of becoming an archivist when you grow up.?


    Reasonable

    ?I can?t believe you made lunch all by yourself.? Master Quix smiled at ten year-old Yoda as he set a steaming bowl in front of her.

    ?On the Temple grounds I found all the ingredients,? Yoda replied with pride.

    ?He must mean in the garden,? Quix thought, taking a bite.

    She froze as a bitter, repulsive taste filled her mouth.

    ?Like it do you?? Yoda gazed at her hopefully.

    Quix forced the vile food down her throat without gagging. ?Yoda, dear,? she began. ?Your palate is so?so?.unique, I think it?s best if you save your special meals only for you.?


    Probable

    Yoda leaned comfortably against the tree trunk casting his eyes on the bustling skies above. Closing his eyes, he immersed himself in the Force around him, opening his mind to whatever it wished to reveal to him today.

    Hundreds of faces flashed before his eyes before he saw himself, looking the same as he did now, leading class after class of younglings in the basic Jedi teachings.

    Yoda?s eyes opened as a wave of peace washed over him. ?A teacher I may be.?

    The thought pleased him, though he knew with the future always being in motion, that could change.


    Definite


    Eight year-old Yoda paused by the door to Master Nadeau?s training room.

    Someone was inside crying.

    He cautiously entered, his eyes quickly adjusting to the darkness and soon found three year-old Leto Bardak sobbing in the corner.

    Without a word, he crossed the room, settling beside the Ferroan and began rubbing his back.

    ?I?fwailed?,? Leto gasped.

    ?Shhhh,? Yoda whispered. ?No such thing as failure there is. Keep practicing and you will succeed.?

    Master Nadeau stood just outside the room, pleased with Yoda?s response to the distraught boy. ?He has a special ability with younglings. Someday, he?ll make a great teacher.?

    I just happened to catch 'ESB' on SPIKE TV last night during the scene where Luke was tasting Yoda's stew! I could just see his teacher saying this in response to Yoda's culinary cuisine.

    Well done! =D=

    Before this I would never of thought Yoda would do something like that! I am pleasantly suprised. Can't wait for you to open my eyes more to the world of Yoda-amazingness.

    Thank you! That one was my favorite to write and I can imagine it took Yoda awhile to realize he was really the only one who liked his?unique stew :p


    earlybird-obi-wan: Lovely. Yoda is no archivist and his stew [face_laugh] already makes victims.

    I?m glad you enjoyed the more?mischievous side of Yoda. :D


    Jade_Pilot: I could just see his teacher saying this in response to Yoda's culinary cuisine.

    [face_laugh] [face_laugh] His stew does seem to have the same negative effect on people.

    Me too! It also makes me wonder just what all is growing on Jedi grounds? [face_thinking] [face_thinking]

    Truth

    ?There will be a test after the video,? Master Anquoe announced as he dimmed the lights.

    Gasps of surprise filled the room as the latest episode of ?Mewiki, the Ewok Explorer? began to play.

    Light filled the room as the holocam was abruptly stopped.

    ?All right, younglings,? Anquoe said with a hint of amusement, ?who switched the video??

    The room was silent.

    ?Unless the culprit comes forward,? Anquoe paused, his eyes traveling over each one of his students, ?all of you will be punished.

    Yoda gulped. Taking a deep breath, he rose to his feet. ?Guilty I am,? he admitted.


    Trust


    Yoda bit back a giggle as he slipped away from his class touring through Coruscant. He enjoyed the sights Master Bintaghr took them to, but he was eager to explore the city on his own.

    Yoda frowned as he turned a corner and found himself in a strange area. With a start, he realized he was lost.

    His heart began to pound with fear as turned around.

    Suddenly, he was knocked to the ground.

    ?Watch it, Force freak!?

    Yoda froze. How could he have forgotten? With a tentative smile, he reached for his always present ally and was lead home.


    Honor

    Yoda smoothed the wrinkles from his tunic before putting on his freshly washed homespun robe. Tonight was a very special occasion and he wanted to make sure he looked his best.

    The entire Order was silent as they made their way to the massive dinning hall, already prepared with somber decorations.

    Yoda took a moment to study each of the small bronze busts carefully placed throughout the room before sliding onto his bench.

    Grand Master of the Jedi Order, Maydla Teff, stood, calling for silence. ?Tonight, we gather to honor fallen brethren.?

    Tears filled Yoda?s eyes as the ceremony continued.


    Loyalty


    Yoda yawned as he entered the Galactic Politics class. There was nothing he hated more than the pointless debating that seemed to dominate the political scene but he was required to take the class since the Jedi dealt frequently with politicians.

    ?A Jedi?s loyalty should be to the Order above all else,? Master Sangha announced, kicking off the class. ?Yoda, do you agree or disagree??

    Yoda thought for a moment. ?Disagree, I do.?

    ?Because??

    ?Keepers of the peace the Jedi are,? Yoda replied. ?To fulfill our duty, required democracy and freedom are.

    Loyal to the Republic, the Jedi should be.?


    Love

    Yoda leaned back against his favorite tree in the Temple garden, his eyes grazing over all the magnificent plants and flowers. Never had he seen anything so beautiful. Sighing, he closed his eyes and began to doze.

    ?Hello,? a soft voice interrupted.

    Yoda opened his eyes?and froze as he found himself starring at the most stunning female he?d ever seen.

    ?Ah..uh?,?

    ?Yaddle, I am,? she announced with a shy smile.

    ?Yad?Yad?Yaddle,? Yoda repeated, feeling his cheeks burn.

    ?Name do you have??

    Yoda?s mind went blank. ?Yes,? he answered, continuing to stare.

    ?Come to you someday perhaps it will,? Yaddle chuckled.

    Thank you so much [:D] I?d like to think the Jedi had some way of honoring those who died.

    Yes, the secret is out now ? he is very mischievous :p

    Gaze

    Yoda took a deep breath, urging his pounding heart to return to a normal beat. He was supposed to be instructing a class of three year-olds on basic levitation techniques, something he?d done countless times without any problems but this time, she was here.

    Only a few meters away, Master Yaddle was practicing her katas, completely oblivious to his presence.

    How was he supposed to concentrate with her right there? He stole a glance at her as his students began to arrive and froze.

    Yaddle was gazing unabashedly at him.

    His heart skipped a beat as he hastily looked away.


    Wink

    Yoda shuffled into the dinning room, his head hanging in shame. How could he have been so stupid? He?d practiced his experiment hundreds of time with no problems, yet when he was in front of the entire Order, he?d done something wrong and the whole thing blew up in his face.

    He could he ever recover from the humiliation?

    ?Yoda.?

    Yoda cringed. Just when he thought his day couldn?t get any worse, Yaddle was there.

    ?Heard defective the equipment for your experiment was.?

    As Yoda glanced up at her, Yaddle winked.

    Relief filled him and he suddenly felt much better.


    Distance

    Yoda stormed into his quarters, tossing his lightsaber across the room. Stomping into the kitchen, he began rummaging through is cupboards for something appealing to make for dinner.

    He was furious with Master Fahion. Just because he was a bit moody today was no reason for the crotchety old nerfherder to excuse him from class.
    Granted he?d been a bit irritated for?Yoda paused as he realized his anger had been building ever since Yaddle left for a mission tow months ago.

    He frowned. He couldn?t allow his emotions to be effected by her absence. Meditate on the matter he would.


    Cold As Ice


    Yoda slowly made his way through the Room of a Thousand Fountains, his shoulders slumped in defeat as the argument with Yaddle playing over and over in his mind. It was such a stupid fight and he had hoped allowing her a couple days to calm down would make her receptive to the apology he knew she was entitled to.

    But it hadn?t.

    She was colder than Hoth in a deep freeze towards him.

    He sighed wearily as he sank down beside his favorite pond, silently praying she wouldn?t stay angry forever. He couldn?t bear loosing her friendship.


    Eternal Flame

    ?Sorry I am for my behavior.?

    Yoda?s eyes snapped open at the sound of the sweetest voice he had missed hearing for the last few weeks.

    ?Entitled you were,? he breathed, rising to his feet. ?Unacceptable my actions were.?

    ?True, but accept your apology I should have.? Yaddle smiled shyly.

    ?Over now it is,? Yoda shrugged. ?Happy I am you are talking to me again.?

    ?Make it up to you I should,? she whispered.

    ?How -,?

    Before he could finish, Yaddle leaned forward and kissed him softly. ?Forgiven am I??

    ?Ye..ye?yes,? Yoda stammered, his lips still tingling from hers.
