    This vignette corresponds with my fanfic [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=9849472&page=1]Echoes of the Past[/link]. Even if you have not read it I hope you will enjoy these vignettes and possibly come over to check the story out. (be prepared though it's a long one, but it's like Pringles, once you start you just can't stop!)

    Thanks to JainaJag00 and Zara_Rose for being my betas extraordinaire. All things Star Wars belong to the man, George Lucas. These stories coincide with the events of DARK TIDE: RUIN by Michael Stackpole (one of my favorite authors). Some of the lines are straight out of the book to ensure continuity, especially dialogue; I just used Jag's point of view and elaborated on some scenes. If you have not read the book, the vignettes should be just as enjoyable. I will give you page numbers in the book in case you want to go back and read the original scene.

    The first vignette does not coincide with any particular part of the book, but rather is a 'missing' scene from before Jag's character is ever introduced to the readers. Without further ado, here goes....


    THE DREAM

    The swirling wind whipped snow flurries all around him, sometimes blinding him in a sheet of white. Other times he could just discern the outline of a figure in the distance. The figure was moving across the glacier, through the blizzard in a slow deliberate step. A violet light illuminated the hooded form from behind, moving back and forth in rhythm with the bearer?s gait.

    He called out, fearing the person lost on the glacier. Most inhabitants of the planet knew better than to be out in such a storm. Nobody ever really came this far out of the city, this close to the estate. The figure stopped for a moment at the sound of his voice, but never turned to face him. Then the form resumed its march.

    He left the relative protection provided by the proximity to the main estate building to follow the misplaced traveler. His hunt was made all the more difficult from fighting through the drifts of snow, but he trudged forward, undaunted by the task. Some force was pulling him like a magnet, driving his feet faster and faster.

    He was close enough now to make out the tiny shape of a blue robe, the figure was somewhat smaller than he was. This puzzled him for almost every native was as big as, if not taller than, him. Possibly, it was a child. He called again, driven by a gnawing desire to protect this being?s life.

    This time, the figure turned at the sound of his voice. Instead of the blue-skinned face of a child, there was a young woman with skin like his. There were so few humans on his adopted home planet that the sight was unexpected. He knew every female human in the city and surrounding parts, but did not recognize this face.

    The features held him captivated. Her skin was flawless. Brown hair cascaded out of the hood, capturing snowflakes in its tendrils. Those eyes beckoned him to fall into them and lose himself in a warm, comfortable place. He had known those eyes his whole life, and yet he had never met this mysterious beauty. Her eyes reflected the brilliant violet rays emanating from the sword of light grasped in her hand.

    Then she smiled, like she was greeting an old friend. Her hand came up; her fingers outstretched, beckoning for a touch. He reached out, his farthest finger hungering for the feel of her. Their fingers were so close he could almost feel the electricity spark between the two.

    In a cruel twist, the wind swirled heavier gusts. As he blinked away the piercing snow buffeting his eyes, he realized she was fading with the flurries. Pieces of her fluttered like colored snowflakes on the wind until she was just a ghost. He leaned forward against the blast of wind to grasp her, but his hand met cold air.

    Her lips moved then, calling to him. ?Jag!? Her voice was carried away on the wind, and then she was gone, leaving only the blinding fury of the storm in her wake.


    Jag shot up in the bed. Sweat beaded down his bare che

    Beautiful piece. You have an excellent hand for descriptions, and though I never considered Jag as one with visions, this element of foreshadowing you created makes for a most interesting prelude. I liked the symbolism you used in the dream; I just hope it doesn't mean that Jaina and Jag's relationship will be washed away by the wind. 8-} Great job, once again. I loved the imagery.

    Very nice, melikes! The vision at the beginning was very well-written, and I would even be willing to venture a guess as to the identity of the brown-haired girl... ;)

    That was really good. It was interesting to see something that happened before he even came into the NJO. I wonder what his reaction was to seeing her for the first time. ;) Great story! :D

    That was beautiful, TKeira_Lea. I can't wait for the next one. I've always been intrigued by their first meeting in Ruin, it was almost as if Jag was following a compulsion. He is rather reserved after all.

    GOOD MORNING!

    Eowyn_Jade: Welcome! Jaina? Could be ? more coming.

    jagsredlady: Thanks. This is my twist on Ruin. I?ll have more viggies that coincide with the events of that book to round out the story and tie it in to mine.

    ZR: I can take a hint

    JJ00: Ok the cat?s out of the bag. :D

    Jedi_Stardust: Hope you enjoy, hope you have some free time.

    ROGUE_49: *TKL under the Jedi influence of R49* I will write more Hee hee ;)

    starkrusher: thanks

    OK as soon as I can get with JJ00 to beta some more I will have a short viggie to put up. I have some important scenes in Echoes to finish. Just a heads up, tomorrow is a most important scene in that thread, I think I promised Thursday, but I moved it up a day.

    Tata for now
