The Star Wars Blogathon Challenge

This post is for Briane Pagel's Star Wars Blogathon.

When Star Wars came out back in 1977, I must’ve seen it about 20 times. Overall, I’ve probably seen it a 100 times by now, but I don’t really consider myself a Star Wars buff or fan, but yeah, I loved it back then.

I didn’t think I could come up with anything for this blog fest, but then something came to me. Not sure how good it is as usual, but what the heck. You can find out more about the blog fest challenge over at The Best of Everything. 

When I first found out about the blog fest, I thought I was just supposed to write fan fiction of Star Wars and missed the detail about it having to include the character writing it in the scene. So I had to make some adjustments to get it to work. Mainly, I just wanted to write it as fan fiction. Now I just hope I didn’t miss any details about this blog fest.

Moving on….

Ian is going to be the one writing the story, and he’s going to show it to Sonny. Ian is sixteen years old and Sonny is about forty-five. They have a father-son type relationship. Both are from the world of Vallar, year 2185, on Mars. 


What is going Obi-Wan thinking at this moment? Hmm...

“Sonny, can you read this and tell me what you think?” Ian asked. “I’m writing this for English class, films of the 1970’s.” He handed Sonny the dataviewer. “This in the viewpoint of Obi-Wan right before he was killed by Darth Vader.”

Sonny narrowed his brow as he read.

After all these years in my old age, I was within minutes of facing my former student, Darth Vader. I sensed him recognizing my presence and moving quickly in my direction.

Yoda had always said that Anakin died the day he turned to the dark side. He told me not to think of him as Anakin ever again. This wasn’t easy to do. I still remembered vividly when I almost killed him. It was the hardest thing I had ever had to do.

Then he stood before me in his black robes and mask of a helmet, just him and I in the corridor. I sensed only evil and hatred towards me. He still couldn’t accept that he had not left me a choice. If only I could have saved him from the dark side. So let him kill me and we will be even, yet I won’t be gone. I will be free of this old body and better able to help restore freedom to the republic. I only hope I made the right choice in not telling Luke that Vader is his father. 

Sonny handed the dataviewer back. “It’s good. Did Kayla help you with this?”

“Um, yeah, b
ut I did try to think of it from a father's point of you."

Very nice, though of course they couldn't have used that in the movie or it would have given away too much.

It is good. I wouldn't have worried about the rules of the blogfest anyway - Briane enjoys seeing them broken.

Excellent¡ my new phone for some reason makes it easier to use the upside down exclamation point. so expect to see that a lot. i'll be posting the link soon.

Grumpy, well, I took some liberties since it's fan fiction.

Rusty, glad to hear it's okay to bend the rules.

Thanks Briane!
