    So, I like Gilbert & Sullivan operettas. A lot. Particularly, I'm a huge fan of the Pirates of Penzance. One of the best songs in the show is "with cat-like tread," where they 'sneak' into a house, all the while singing very loudly with lots of crashing flourishes. Kind of like 'sneaking' on to the Star Forge in Knights of the Old Republic, blowing lots of stuff up.

    Thanks to voters for nominating/voting this humble piece Best Songfic and Best Poem! :D

    With Cat-Like Tread, Upon Our Prey We Steal

    Upon entering the Star Forge:
    JEDI: (very loud)
    With cat-like tread,
    Upon our prey we steal;
    In silence dread,
    Our cautious way we feel.
    No sound at all!
    We never speak a word;
    A fly's foot-fall
    Would be distinctly heard--

    SITH:
    (softly) Tarantara, tarantara!

    JEDI:
    So stealthily the Jedi creeps,
    While all the household soundly sleeps.

    Come, friends, who travel space,
    Truce to navigation;
    Take another station;

    Let's tear apart this place
    And see the look on Malak's face!!

    Come, friends, who travel space,
    Truce to navigation;
    Take another station;

    Let's tear apart this place
    And see the look on Malak's face!

    CANDEROUS:
    (distributing implements to various members of the gang)

    Here's your saber and your gauntlets,
    Your life-preserver -- you may end up hit!
    Your stealth field beltage, your Force power seize,
    Take your card and your universal keys.

    SITH:
    Tarantara!

    JEDI:
    With cat-like tread

    SITH:
    Tarantara!

    JEDI:
    In silence dread,

    (Enter REVAN, JOLEE and CARTH)

    ALL (fortissimo).

    With cat-like tread,
    Upon our prey we steal;
    In silence dread,
    Our cautious way we feel.
    No sound at all!
    We never speak a word;
    A fly's foot-fall
    Would be distinctly heard--

    Come, friends, who travel space,

    Truce to navigation;
    Take another station;

    Let's tear apart this place
    And see the look on Malak's face!

    With cat-like tread,
    Upon our prey we steal;
    In silence dread,
    Our cautious way we feel.

    Whee, G&S. Every Jedi needs a good operetta.

    Just a note of thanks to those who nominated this fic for the Before awards, and subsequently voted for it. :D Makes us feel all warm and squishy inside, it does.

    Cheers and Mountain Dew for all!
