Sith Family“And where do you two think you're going?”Sith Family by Stormraven24
Asajj's hand on the doorknob froze as that deep voice drifted through the doorway of the study they had just passed. She suppressed a groan; her mountain of a brother wasn't as subtle. “I told you he'd see us,” Durge growled.
“Shut up the hell up,” Asajj hissed back. She trudged away from the front door, one knob turn away from freedom, and into the mini library. “We're going to the mall, sir.”
Her grandfather didn't look up from his book. “For what purpose?”
Asajj resisted the urge to roll her eyes. Sarcasm and snark wouldn't curry her any favor. “Shopping.”
“Really.” Now Dooku put the book down, but didn't rise from his chair. “And Durge is accompanying you because...”
“I know what looks good on her,” Durge answered, leaning in the doorway.
“I was unaware you had such an eye for female fashion.”
Despite his cocky stance and
AdjustmentShe didn't want to be here. This house was foreign to her. Her new “family” were strangers that she didn't trust and didn't want. The past few months had gone by in a blur, but now that the scenery had changed time seemed to come to a grinding halt. She should have been grateful to have been given a new home so soon after entering foster care. There were kids her age and older who had been in the system since infancy. No one wanted them.

Asajj didn't go near the bed. Although large and beautiful, this room was as cold to her as any freezer. This wasn't her home. That wasn't her bed. And that man who had taken custody of her was not her father. Her father had died, killed on the street by thugs who valued the paper and metal in his pocket more than his life. She still saw his body bleeding out on the sidewalk every time she closed her eyes. She'd
23. FearAsajj and I had a fight this afternoon. I should have known it was coming, but it still took me by surprise. I wanted to send a message to Bail Organa to see about admitting Annileen to the exobiology program at the University of Alderaan. I could see how much it had meant to her, even though she'd tried to hide it. It was the least I could do after all the help she'd given me. Asajj didn't share my sense of reciprocation, however.23.

I say 'fight'. It wasn't so much that as it was a chewing out. "What if it gets intercepted? What if they trace it back here? You'd really risk your life and Luke's so some stranger can go to school?" I tried explaining that it would have been over the secure link Bail had given me before we parted ways on Polis Massa (I don't know why I was so confident in that when I've had the same doubts myself), that even if it were intercepted before it got to Bail no one would look too closely at a university application. That just made her angrier. She stormed out
I'm so excited! Not only do I get to see friend I haven't seen in almost a year there, but it's a first-year con and I've got FOUR new outfits to wear (read: prance around in) AND I'll be going as a guest! We're still working out times for our panels, but hopefully that'll be fixed by tonight. (Supposedly,) I will be giving these panels:
Cosplay Myths and Realities
Religion and Myth in Green Lantern
Doctor Who: The Companions That Never Were
How to Improve Your Fan Fiction In Less Than an Hour
Stop by if you're in the VA Beach area this weekend!
