Retirement [May. 25th, 2005|01:09 pm]
Mace Windu
I've really been struggling with this, but I decided it was time to retire masterwindu. I like this muse a lot, and writing him was a lot of fun, but it's also really hard. I can't seem to get a grip on him the way I have with my other muses, and with Revenge of the Sith just having come out last week, I figure there has to be some fan out there who's dying to write this guy, and it's not fair for me to hang onto him. If the SW fandom weren't exploding right now thanks to the movie, I might try the next couple topics and see what happens, but as it is I think this is the best thing.

Thanks to everyone who made him feel welcome, confused him, or drove him slightly nuts, especially the muns of Obi-Wan and Anakin. It was fun. :)

Who would I hit with a what? [May. 24th, 2005|09:59 am]
Mace Windu
Let me see if I understand this correctly.

With everything that's happening these days, with the war exploding all around us, what the librarians want to preserve in the Archives is the answer to this- Which famous person would I hit with a trout?

I had to consult the archives to find out what a trout was. It's a fish.

So. Which famous person would I hit with a fish?

Well, Yoda is fairly well known, and I sense an old Jedi Master's very odd sense of humor at work here. I would hit him, but if this question comes from him, he'll expect that, and would find it very funny.

If he didn't? I still have to work with him.

So I think, if I had to choose, the person I would hit with a trout would be Emperor Palpatine.

This probably wouldn't be the smartest thing I have ever done, but at this point I don't have a whole lot to loose.

Questions from Anakin [May. 23rd, 2005|11:02 pm]
Mace Windu
1. Have you ever laughed?

It's been a long time, but yes.

2. Did you really think I was dangerous when I first came to the Temple? Do you still?

I thought- I still think- that we begin training Jedi as early as we do for good reasons. You were too old. But it doesn't matter now. We need you. Do I still think you're dangerous? Maybe. Probably.

3. Hypothetically, if I someone borrowed a Jedi Starfighter to go save Obi-Wan from a crazy Sith Lord, would I they get in much trouble?

Hypothetically, hypothetical Obi-Wan really needs to stop getting himself into these situations. But hypothetically, I suppose you a person could do worse things.

4. What does the Jedi Council do when no one is looking?

We play sabacc and we gamble. We talk about all of the things we did when we were Padawans and Knights that none of you are allowed to know about, because you don't need any more ideas. Yoda keeps trying to get us to sing Kareoke. So far we've managed to avoid this. You don't need to know the answer to that.

5. Will you teach me Vaapaad?

That wouldn't seem like a very wise thing to do, considering.

Faded Trust [May. 6th, 2005|08:49 pm]
Mace Windu
They don't trust the Jedi anymore.

I've known it since that nightmare mission to Haruun Kal, since I went home again. If I were being truly honest- and I suppose, here, at least, I had better be- If I were being truly honest, I'd have to say that I've known it for a long time now.

I just can't quite seem to accept it.

A lot has changed from the days of my childhood in the Jedi Temple- the galaxy is different now. But I find it inconceivable that things could have changed so much.

On Haruun Kal, people I tried to help recoiled in disgust when I drew my lightsaber, and their children cursed Jedi for having killed their hero, a bounty hunter called Jango Fett.

They cursed me, though they had no way of knowing that.

I let the children think I was a bounty hunter. If they had known I was a Jedi, they would never have trusted me.

They felt betrayed when they learned the truth, of course. I was sorry for that, but I needed their trust to save their lives.

Not that it mattered much in the end. They no longer trusted me, their parents didn't trust me, and...

Someone I had trusted, my apprentice, my heart's daughter, fell to the warm darkness of the jungle-

I trusted she would come back. I trusted that no matter how far she had fallen, she would find her way back. I trusted that she would not allow...

Would not allow...

She did.

Maybe the galaxy has good reason, these days, to no longer trust in the Jedi.

not_a_farmboy said they wanted to hang out at the mall but I got sick and couldn't go :-(.

I feel like I'm so irritated! I went to gaming group with people yesterday but _senator_palpy is getting favors from the game master. That ruined the game!

Hey and know what? that bitter old queen facelorran gone and said that I got caught backstabbing _zekk. And yeah. You might guess I don't give a flying f*** what they think anymore. I'm over that.

I am so enraged! I don't know why irina_derevko went all psycho over me and countdooku having a little fun.

What sucks is that once_a_hand said they wanted to hang out at the mall but they changed their mind :-(.

Oh and that asshole padawansrock gone and said that they saw me backstabbing _senator_palpy.

countdooku added another meme to their journal. GOD I HATE THAT!!!1!one!

Oh yeah. I was supposed to get together with morally_cryptic Thursday but I don't want to anymore. I'm so tired of seeing the same people.

Oh and _senator_palpy went around saying how I got caught dissing on not_a_farmboy.

What sucks is that yesterday at work sucked.

And also it's so not fair that I have Friday off but nobody wants to do anything :-(. I'll just sit home alone and wish I was dead.

And also I am so going to kick tahiriveila out of the house. They keep on stealing my beer!

_senator_palpy said they wanted to hang out at the mall but I got sick and couldn't go :-(.

constant_vigil told me that irina_derevko told folks that they saw me talking to quigon_jinn_ and backstabbing master_obiwan. What a crock! If I get my hands on them there's paybacks!

the other day at work I got in a huge fight with quigon_jinn_.

mom & dad was totally unfair to me this afternoon and now now I can't go to the mall with _leiaorgana and _jsolo :-(.

Oh and I am so going to kick countdooku out of the house. They keep on stealing my Doritos!

What sucks is that that jackass __padme__ gone and said that they saw me talking to once_a_hand and dissing on _senator_palpy.

Oh yeah. I am totally going to ban anakin_solo_ from commenting in my LJ for what they said about countdooku!!!!

What sucks is that countdooku said they wanted to go to a concert but misjudged_rogue wanted to do something else :-(.

And also Thursday at work I got in a huge fight with padawansrock.

that bitter old queen countdooku gone and said that they saw me talking to holocam_boy and backstabbing starlight_mage.

And also I am totally going to ban majorwraithbait from commenting in my LJ for what they said about padawansrock!!!!

What sucks is that someone at work found out I was into cross-dressing and I think that's why I got fired :-(.

Oh and I am so going to kick tahiriveila out of the house. They got totally drunk the other day and projectile vomited all over quigon_jinn_!

Moment of Weakness [Apr. 29th, 2005|03:03 pm]
Mace Windu
A Jedi cannot allow emotions to weaken or distract him. A Jedi is meant to stand above such things, beyond them.

We are not meant to hold the bonds of old friendship so close that we cannot bring ourselves to do what must be done. We are not meant to let that sentiment blind us to the truth.

I did.

I believed that when Dooku left the Jedi, he did so, as he said, for reasons of philosophical differences. It is not common, but others have walked away without straying from the path of light. He was my friend. I took him at his word.

By the time we met again, in the arena at Geonosis, I should have come to accept and acknowledge his betrayal. But I could not. Oh, I knew what he had done, what he had become, but I could not face him and understand, take in the knowledge that this man, my friend, was of the Sith. That he had turned so far from what he once had been.

And when I could have turned the destiny of a galaxy by killing my friend- when I knew what was at stake, what would be if I did not-

No. That's not true. I thought that I understood what we faced. I thought I knew what war was. I did not.

Yet I could have kept the war at bay. I saw it, saw how the Separatists would crumble into nothing without his leadership. At that moment, it could have been so.

But emotion and sentiment stayed my hand, until it was too late.

That is my greatest weakness. I could not set aside my feelings when it was necessary.

Introduction [Apr. 28th, 2005|12:22 pm]
Mace Windu

The name is Windu. Jedi Master Mace Windu. I earned the title, I'd appreciate it if you'd use it. I fought at Geonosis; I've fought a lot of places since then. I have been a Jedi all my life. Our way is the only one that I know, and we are losing it. Day by day, step by step, inch by inch, it is slipping away from us.

I am the Jedi who could have stopped it. And I am the Jedi who did not do so.

I saw the shatterpoint of the Clone Wars, and knew that if I struck it at just the right moment, I could turn the tide. Stop this madness before it began. But I could not do it. The shatterpoint I saw was a man I once called friend. In that moment on Geonosis, I could have averted the war if I had only raised my lightsaber and killed, not Jango Fett, but Master- no, Count Dooku. It would have cost my life to strike that shatterpoint, but that is unimportant. What Jedi would not have sacrificed themselves for that chance? Which even of the citizens of the Republic who fight alongside us would not have given their lives for this? One life, to stop the war.

The war rages on, because I could not kill a friend.
