    ~What if instead of Kyp saving Jaina from the dark side at Hapes, she ended up seducing him back to the dark side?~

    I've finally decided to try my hand at K/J instead of J/J, lol. This idea has actually been in the works for a while now, but I haven't had the time to get around to it until now. For the sake of the story, Jag has never returned from the Unknown Regions after being recalled post-Ithor, so I guess this could be considered what might have happened if he hadn't come back during Dark Journey. I'll try to have a new post up for you guys at least once a week, but you'll have to bear with me as I'm starting law school in a few weeks. This first chapter is on the short side, but the others will be longer, and, as you've probably guessed, this story will get pretty dark in some places. Hope you all enjoy the ride!

    [b]Is it her fault or mine?
    The tempter or the tempted, who sins most?

    -Shakespeare's [i]Measure for Measure[/i][/b]

    It had been many years since Kyp Durron last felt this exhausted.

    It wasn't just physical, but mental and emotional, as well, perhaps even spiritual. His squadron was gone, all of his pilots dead save for Octa Ramis, who had returned to the Jedi base after making it clear she would not fly with him again. The past few months had been draining for the Jedi Order as a whole, but in the last week, things had gotten downright desolate.

    A team of young Jedi Knights, several of them that he was fond of, had allowed themselves to be captured by the Yuuzhan Vong in order to get access to the voxyn cloning labs on the worldship over Myrkr. They had succeeded in their mission to destroy the voxyn queen and eliminate the cloning labs, a heroic deed which may have very well saved the entire Jedi Order, but it had come at a great price.

    Less than half of the strike team had survived, and among the fallen was Anakin Solo, the Order's brightest star, along with his older brother Jacen, whom Kyp was less fond of.

    Han and Leia Solo were distraught over the loss of their youngest child, but Leia was refusing to accept that Jacen was dead, claiming that she knew he was still alive. It pained Kyp to see the regal princess in such denial, but he supposed it was understandable, she had suffered too much too quickly, feeling the deaths of two of her children in one day must have been too much to bear.

    And on top of that, her only daughter had begun to slide dangerously towards the dark side.

    That was, perhaps, what unsettled him the most, for Jaina had always struck him as one of the most pragmatic of all the Jedi. As the granddaughter of Darth Vader, she was remarkably strong in the Force, like the rest of her family, but her real strength, in Kyp's opinion, had always had more to do with being Jaina than being a Jedi.

    But he understood better than anyone what the loss of a brother could do, and with both Jacen and Anakin gone, it wasn't surprising that Jaina had fallen into despair.

    "Let me know when you get a lock on her, Zero," he called to his astromech as the stars fell into place around them. He barely acknowledged the reply that scrolled across his console, though, as his thoughts began to wander to the startling events that had led him to undertake this risky mission.

    He had, for some unexplainable reason, felt Jacen Solo's death through the Force, while he had not felt Anakin's. In fact, he had not even known that the youngest Solo was dead until he offered his condolences on the loss of their son to Han and Leia, only to realize too late that Han did not yet know about Jacen. While it was clear that Luke and Mara had felt Jacen's passing just as strongly as Kyp had, probably even more so given the closeness they shared with their nephew, they had both warned him off from breaking Leia out of her denial and he had agreed to their less-than-pleasant request.

    After all, he'd caused the Skywalker family enough pain over the years, he certainly didn't want to add to it now, when Leia was in her darkest hour.

    So when the Hapan officials approached them with the news that a Yuuzhan Vong frigate analog had been detected that was reportedly being piloted by none other than Lieutenant Jaina Solo and in need of an escort planetside, Kyp had volunteered his services.

    Leia had been a bit skeptical, but she'd been aware of the fact that there was no one else on Hapes more capable of getting an enemy ship down than him, save for Luke Skywalker himself, but Luke and Mara were busy trying to find a ship of their own in order to meet with Lando Calrissian, who currently had young Ben in his care. While she would have undoubtedly felt better had it been Luke going up after her daughter, Leia couldn't ask him to delay going for Ben, especially not when she knew all too well the ter>

    This sounds like it will be a cool story, and I congratulate you, JPS, on your conversion, lol :p ;) I, too, have gone over to the Kyp side of the Force :D

    Oooh, new K/J 'fic! :D (it IS K/J, not J/K . . .)

    This looks promising. :)

    Don't forget to submit this to the K/J fanfic index! :)

    ohhh *peers around interested* this looks interesting *reads post* WOW that was good. Kyp's right though, this isn't going to be easy for him to do. Jaina is going to be a handful and somehow Kyp has to get Jaina's trust back. *smacks Durron* Nice job with Serpindal idiot! See what its gotten you??? *sigh* That was a really really dumb move Durron, good luck with the trust thing.

    More soon??

    Lovely start to what I am sure will be a great fic :)

    He he, this will be better than Dark Journey, I am sure- Jaina needed to fall much deeper than she did. Of course, if the timeline is right, then she threatened to kill Ganner at Borleias... which means she wasn't quite as 'friendly' as they all thought, lol [face_devil]

    Ooh, this sounds like it will good! [face_devil] He he, would have made the NJO more interesting if Jaina stayed dark, wouldn't it? And with Kyp at her side, she'd have been causing havoc for the Vong everywhere :p ;)

    Very nice start for what looks like it will be a very nice fic :D I have always found it irritating that they didn't keep Jaina on the dark side longer- IMO, it would have made the NJO better :p And if you're going to pull Kyp to join her, well... [face_devil]
