I just updated Kaleidoscope on ff.net and tfn. Thank you so much 

fialleril for beta-reading.

I started a short story (or vignette, I haven't quite decided which) last weekend called 'The Tragedy of Darth Plageius the Wise'.  It's very unlikely I'll finish it soon. I want to work on Thwarted Fate this weekend.  ::frets and looks shamefacedly at reihla:: So here's a cookie to tide me by until it's ready.   Concrit is much appreciated. 

 

 

“The Jedi have it wrong. Darkness is nothing something be abhorred nor is light to be worshipped. Out of darkness, comes the light. If the darkness is evil, then so does the light it begets and so is life. What is one creature’s life but a mere candle burning in the eternal darkness of time?

 

“Between the choice of the two as Masters, which would a wise man ally himself with?”

The old man paused in his writings and looked out of the window. It had been a warm day and as the sun began its descent over the clear horizon, the clouds thickened ominously. Far on the other side of the lake, a small boat struggled against fretful waters as it made its way to the old man’s island. 

A portent, he thought and smiled.

Eerie, eerie feeling. Fretful waters and smiles. How utterly perfect. You have a very distinct voice in merely a few lines, and I suspect the rest of the story must be chilling.

A beautiful piece of writing, truly. I am intrigued!

::devilish smile::

BTW, my idea of Plageius was distinctly human so now that the EU seems to have contradicted that, this story might be AU-ish.

Darth Plagueis, hmm? Very interesting. :D I like the bit of philosophy you've included, and the fact that you make it pretty convincing.

A portent, indeed.

yeah, I love Devil's advocate logic. It always sounds so sensible! :p

Logic. Heh. And sensibility. Heh. A Jedi craves not these things...

;)

LOL!

:D you know it's true! Not that the Sith are any better, of course. Owen Lars, though... ;)

Oooo. I think you'll do very well with Plaguis. Ever since the opera scene in Ep III I've wanted someone to do his story. :)

You know you don't need to feel bad about working on other projects as far as I'm concerned. ;) We are soooo at the mercy of our muses and they don't always behave, do they?

::hugs:: Thanks for understanding. I have started working on TF though. Which means, I've started re-reading everything that came before, trying to come up to speed on the story. It's quite a scope we wrote, isn't it? Right now I'm in the middle of Book 1 and the scene where Ferus and Barriss argue about the morality and ethics of hacking. :p

Hmm, very mysterious. I wonder if you will write AU? Hehe, you should give us a cookie on the premise of the story, so we can gape and awe at your plotline! Must check out kaleidoscope at some point... am very eager to see how it all fits together!

HA! Flattery will get you everything - cookies included!

Kaleidoscope is something that might be better understood in big lumps so I don't mind you taking the occasional break --- as long as you do come back for more. :p
