Who Are You?
The door opens easily and makes little noise. Though Master Kenobi has forbidden students to visit the tower you find yourself walking up the old stone steps. You have your reasons.
The Force tingles in the air around you. In the shadowy light of your glowbar you can make out footprints in the dust. Someone has been here before you.
At the top of the stairs you hesitate. A nightbird cries out somewhere in the darkness. Light flickers from underneath the door before you. Can you hear whispering? Is someone in there now?
You consider turning around and going back to bed, but something tugs at you...
You open the door and step into the tower room. It's very cold...
And empty. Decaying furniture lies scattered around the floor. Tattered pages of some mouldy book flutter half-heartedly in the wind.
Your first sensation is relief - how silly you were to be worried. Nothing here can hurt you, unless you have allergies.
From the window you can see the main Temple compound. The other Jedi are probably sleeping now.
Slowly the hairs on the back of your neck begin to rise. You feel a presence in the room. You turn from the window but see no one. An oppressive air hangs upon this place. A great sadness fills your heart.
As you move towards the door it slowly swings closed, as if pushed by the breeze. The power in your glowbar flickers for a moment and then goes out.
Darkness.Who are you?

A faint glow grows in the darkness, like a pool of light coalescing into the shape of a man. The figure stands a few inches taller than you, its face is partially obscured by its translucent robes. It stalks towards you slowly...Jedi? That is not a name... But, yes, I do feel the Force in you. Why have you come to my tower? Did Kenobi send you?
No. I think not. You aren't meant to be here, I can sense it. And more, I can smell your fear... and anger. No, not a Jedi, whatever your name.
Tell me, boy, why have you come to my prison?

Ah shhhhugar coated marshmellows! I should have stayed at the academy! I'm Tella Vorn, who are you?

More company? And another Dark Sider! If I didn't know better I would think the temple had fallen to the Sith.
I am Master Durnago, Tella Vorn. Prisoner of the Jedi...

Seth I will ask that you not return here. It will do you no good to do such things.

Tal sits on a rock outside the Temple when he feels it. Some distance away there is a strange feeling. A feeling he has felt before. He felt it...in the cave. It was cold, death, unnerving. Tal stood up and threw his hood over his head. A storm was coming.
"Master? Where are we going?" Asked Les.
"I have felt something. Something that should not be on this planet. Something of great temptation. Come, let us discover this feeling." Tal set out and Les followed. They walked through the jungle and through fields until they meet a huge tower. It was very old and vines covered the walls thickly. He sensed that there were people in that tower and something else.
"Master, I don't like that feeling. I don't like that place." Says Les fearfully.
"Control your fear Les. It is alright. I will not let harm come to you. This feeling you feel is the Dark Side. It is the icy hand of temptation and death. Remember this feeling Padawan, for it will not the last time you feel it." Tal walked through the door and looked around. He feels people upstairs and walks up them to see what is going on. As he gets closer to the top he hears voices but does not interupt them. He stops and looks through a crack in the wall to see the Jedi, Tella, and little Seth all talking to some ghostly figure. After they have finished there conversation he graciously walks through the doorway and announces his arrival. "You should not be here." Says Tal to everyone. "Especially you young Seth."
Seth looks down at the floor hoping it will capture his attention more then his surroundings. "And what are you? A rogue Jedi who defied the Jedi Council? No, you are a traiter and you have been condemed for it. I do not disagree with your claims for love. I too love people on this planet. I have a family here, I have a padawan, a brother." He looks to the Jedi. "But that does not mean you have any right to 'power'. The Jedi is right in saying that you are a spectre who was power hungry. You claim yourself Jedi, but from what I see you are a memory. A memory of a fallen defialer. No good can come from listening to your story, "Jedi Master". And do not think I did not feel the power and death of the Dark Side when I walked to this tower. Jedi, Tella, Seth I ask that you not come back to this place again. This place stinks of the Dark Side and you do not need the temptation. You are all doing so well with your paths to the Light Side that you should not be swayed to this...again. Please, as a brother and a friend I ask you this."
The 3 of them do not speak as they leave one by one. "Les I need you to go outside and follow the others back."
Les looks up at him with concern, "Yes Master." He turns around and walks away.
Tal sighs and looks at the spectre. "Now, what do you REALLY want, 'Jedi'?"

You speak from a script, boy. A script written by Jedi Masters who were dead before you wer ever born. Compassion?! That is not the same as the Love I speak of. I refer to the highest pinnacle of human endeavor...the selfless bond between two individuals. Love, not your new age jedi substitute for it. Not your council approved version. How can one love be right and another be wrong?
Answer that my fine jedi philosopher. Do not qoute me "the path to the darkside" lines. Love causes people to act positively, love creates more love.
Do you know why that policy was started? In the earliest days of the Jedi, and this is a secret long suppressed, masters would take promising padawans as their mates to breed more powerful jedi. Human emotions, such as love and desire, interuppted the cold scientific nature of this plan. Love had to be marginalized in order to allow the jedi order to facilitate the reproduction of their prized students and mentors.
You think you live a code based on morality? Don't be so naive! The Rule is a practical tool used to keep control of a group that would be too powerful if left to its own devises.
You know nothing of me. Nothing of love. And little of your own history. Next time you come to another's home perhaps you will have the good courtesy to listen for a moment before you start spouting your propoganda!
Tell me little jedi, do you have any thoughts of your own...or are they all council approved?
Listen well, little padawans. See the high jedi meet an opposite view with unthinking fanaticism. They will never listen. They never did.
I died here, starved to death. And I never felt the compassion of the Jedi. I did feel their intolerance and small-mindedness though.
You waste my time. Send me a true jedi, instead.
One who has more than read what he is meant to believe...send me one who has actually lived life and made his own decisions.

You seem changed slightly. Your aura is more distinct. Perhaps you are a true jedi...
Yes, enter and speak your mind.

My name is Rei Jaganshi. Heh, now that I get in here, It's not as gloomy as it looks outside...
Wed, Jun. 29th, 2005 06:12 pm (UTC)
Greetings, Rei Jaganishi. I am Master Durnago.
Gloom is a matter of perspective, as is happiness. Consider, from the outside you would seem to have led the happiest of lives, but we know differently, don't we...
Why do you come to my tower, Rei?
