Between the Conclaves – 3. Dantooine: Ghosts from the Past, Part 1

3. Dantooine: Ghosts from the Past

Part 1

Vhiran knelt down at the crystal formation. In this one the young Jedi Knight had taken a particular interest, and not merely because of its odd placement, completely on its own and isolated from any of the other crystals in the cave. It was a small formation, its size not even greatly surpassing that of a single cut crystal, yet it seemed to radiate with some strange energy, a power unlike the much larger clusters of crystals. The power, Vhiran thought, had to be connected to the placement and size in some way. For a lone formation this old looking and seemingly untouched, yet at the same time so small, he could not think of any other explanation. The young man sat down in crossed-leg position and gave the short hilt in his hand another look. He smiled. Throughout their stay in the caves on Dantooine, he had, next to training his Padawan, spent his time in a way he did not only find enjoyable, but which would also prove valuable once the time for retaliation against the Empire came. With materials collected and delivered to him by Ghost, the loyal Alpha Squad commando who was stationed on the planet and kept them hidden from the Imperials, Vhiran had been crafting several lightweapons, something he found he had a knack for ever since he created his first lightsaber. With every completed hilt he searched the caves for a fitting crystal to power and complete the weapon. Several projects had he successfully finished, from a standard one bladed lightsaber to more complicated designs such as a double-bladed weapon, a lightspear and even a dual-phase lightsaber, a weapon of which the blade’s length could be adjusted to nearly that of his own body. The one he was holding right now was by far his favourite however; a short silver and black coloured hilt, a lightknife once completed. Despite its heavy look the hilt lay surprisingly light in the hand and was easy to grip. The intricate runic decorations he had carved into it made the weapon not only a formidable one but also quite a beauty to behold. Vhiran was very fond of this particular creation and wanted nothing but an excellent crystal as its power source. This one.

Putting the hilt under his robe and closing his eyes, Vhiran focussed on the source of the crystal formation’s power. As his focus became stronger, so did the power. Then, a bright flash of light appeared in his mind. He remained unmoved, kept his eyes closed. This sort of thing happened to him more often. He was a Bodisei after all, a species known for their incredible talent in both foresight and post-cognition, and while Vhiran could not yet control it fully, he was long used to it and aware of whenever another vision was shown to him. He waited. The light faded, making place for the view of a dark barren land, and a ruin of what appeared to have been a temple. On top of one the broken walls Vhiran could see a silhouette of a crouched figure. It was a slim figure, rather short. Its left hand was placed before it on the wall beneath, while the right held on to something on its back, though Vhiran could not see what. In the middle of the ruins another figure stood. This one he could see clearer; a man, tall and broad, with a pale skin, short white hair, and a pair of glowing yellow eyes. He carried a large scar diagonally across his face and past his eyes, and under a long coat he wore a simple loose shirt and pants. The man’s appearance looked familiar. His skin, his hair, his eyes; all seemed to point in the same direction. A Bodisei?

Introducing Between the Conclaves


Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.

Hi! ^_^
