Jango Fett 89:  Thanx for the reply.  I have been really lazy in the last month or distracted by other things (organizing my collection & the PS3).  I do have the outline ready for the next three chapters, I just haven't gotten around to the actual photography.  I'm hoping to begin work in the next week or so.  The photography should go fast if I follow my outline.  Then it is just a matter of writing the dialogue.  There will be a lot of action, and and Epiloge to tie up all loose ends.  I would be interested in knowing how you came across the pics in your websearch.  That sounds interesting!

Stay tuned guys!  I hope to post some preview pics in the near future.  8)

Thanx for the comments guys!

The update should be posted within the next week, with this Friday being the earliest.  I'm in the final stages of completion (primarily writing the dialogue), so the update should be very soon.

Glad you guys liked the pics, b/c there will be a lot of pics like the ones above.   8)

Chapters 46-48 are finally complete!  I took some extra time with this update since I tweaked the dialogue countless times.  Hopefully it works in unison to the action pics.

Enjoy!  8)

DARK ILLUSIONS - Chapter 46

DARK ILLUSIONS

ACT III

Chapter 46




During the Battle of Oner, Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi sees Count Dooku fleeing the battlefield on a speeder bike.  Hoping to end the war with the capture of Dooku, Obi-Wan pursues him to a remote part of Oner.



Obi-Wan Kenobi:   (thinking)   That’s Kyde’s speeder alright.  I only need one guess to know how Dooku ended up with it…





Obi-Wan Kenobi:   (thinking)   The homing beacon should help Cody find this location.




Obi-Wan Kenobi:   (thinking)   Let’s hope he doesn’t take TOO long.




Obi-Wan Kenobi:   (thinking)   So……these are the Crystal Mines.



Obi-Wan Kenobi:   (thinking)   ……incredible……




Obi-Wan Kenobi:   (thinking)   It’s no wonder so many have died in attempts to control these mines…




Count Dooku:   I would have to agree, Master Kenobi.  These crystals are……exquisite.
Obi-Wan Kenobi:   Count Dooku.




Obi-Wan Kenobi:(thinking)   But where………
Count Dooku:   May I be the first to welcome you to the Oner Caverns.  Those less educated still call them the Crystal Mines.




Count Dooku:   “The Crystal Mines” no longer exist due to smugglers and vandals.  The people of Oner sculpted each crystal in this cavern in dedication to their homeland.  What you see before you is the result of their labor, including the floor you stand on……100% Oneran Crystal.  Not even the Force could move these masterpieces.




Obi-Wan Kenobi:   So this is the reason you want control of Oner…to take possession of these mines for yourself, Dooku?
Count Dooku:   On no, my friend.  I value this shrine for what it still is: a place of peace and purity.  One of the few things in this galaxy that the Republic has not yet corrupted.




Obi-Wan Kenobi:   If you truly believe that, then why bring the War here?
Count Dooku:   Mind you that I did not bring the War here……the Republic did.  My interest was only to assure the preservation of this magnificent place.




Count Dooku:   Nonetheless, please allow me to congratulate you on your recent appointment to the Jedi Council, Master Kenobi.  You are one of the few shining lights left in the Order.  Qui-Gon would be very proud of the Jedi you have become. 
 



Obi-Wan Kenobi:   Qui-Gon believed in the will of the Force…and in the Republic.  He would never have turned his back on the Order.
Count Dooku:   What about the Jedi Council?  It was Qui-Gon that defied the Council by accepting your apprentice.  If he hadn’t, the ‘Great Hero’ of the Republic would not be a Jedi now.  This War has only further clouded their vision, my friend.




Obi-Wan Kenobi:   Perhaps, but the Council is fully aware of your defection to the Dark Side.
 



Count Dooku:   The “dark side” is a point of view, Master Kenobi.  Many of the truths we hold dear are based on a certain point of view.  Surely Master Yoda has told you this by now.





Count Dooku:   Take as an example how the Council approved the use of human clones.  The manipulation of life is strictly forbidden in the Code.  Yet, to wage an uncivilized War, the Council willfully leads these engineered humans into battle…sacrificing them as quickly as they can replace them.  I ask you, is that the will of the Force?




Obi-Wan Kenobi:   These are troubled times.  All of it could come to an end……if you surrender, Dooku. 




Count Dooku:   Ah…ever the negotiator, Master Kenobi.  I do not think I could willfully surrender to an Order that allows indiscreet, romantic relationships between Jedi and Senators.  During my time, such a relationship would result in immediate expulsion from the Order.
Obi-Wan Kenobi:   …………




Count Dooku:   You know of whom I speak of……don’t you, Master Kenobi? 




Obi-Wan Kenobi:   Enough!  Show yourself, Dooku!




Count Dooku:   Seems that I touched a nerve…




Obi-Wan Kenobi:   It ends now, Dooku.




Count Dooku:   Master Kenobi, once again you disappoint me.  I have been nothing but cordial, yet you raise your saber towards me?  We are simply discussing our……differences.




Obi-Wan Kenobi:   Your actions speak louder than any words, Dooku.




Count Dooku:   Perhaps, but you would be wise to say the same about the Council.  I cannot help but wonder if you were chosen for this assignment because you are the newest member of the Council. 




Count Dooku:   Why not send Master Windu or Master Yoda?  Perhaps even Master Mundi?  Surely my apprehension is more important than rescuing an old friend.  The Council is fortunate to have your wisdom.  Someone to show them the true power of the Force……the will of the Force.
Obi-Wan Kenobi:   You won’t convert me to the Dark Side, Dooku. 




Count Dooku:   Oh no?  Then perhaps your apprentice……Skywalker!




Obi-Wan Kenobi:   NNNOOOO!!!




Obi-Wan strikes with his lightsaber...but Dooku blocks his attack.




Count Dooku:   So be it…Jedi.

DARK ILLUSIONS

ACT III

Chapter 47



As the 212th Battalion begin post-battle operations, Commander Cody and Anakin Skywalker await contact from Obi-Wan Kenobi.



Clone Trooper Pry:   I don’t remember ‘Battle Cleanup 101’ in basic training, do you?
Clone Trooper Fraz:   General Skywalker issued the order to salvage whatever is left of the Droid Army for intelligence.





Clone Trooper Wark:   I say we melt them down…make dinnerware out of them.  It would serve the entire Grand Army!





Clone Pilot Ratchet:   So that is the “great” Droid Commander OOM-12, huh?
Clone Trooper Zank:   Nothing more than scrap now.  But if he is carrying any recent transmissions in his database, he may yet be of use to us





Clone Trooper Pry:   Or maybe we should prop them up for target practice!
Anakin Skywalker:   ……….





Never good with patience, Anakin’s mind begins to wander…

Watto:   It don’t matter how long it takes!  Wait here until the customer arrives.  And make sure they pay in advance!  No funny business……Wha?  Wheres everyone goin’?
Anakin Skywalker:   Something is coming this way.





Jawa:   Eeeecccchhhheeeeee!!!
Yakface:   Raiders!!!





Watto:   Raiders??  Quick!  Take cover!  You’re no good to me if you can’t race!
Anakin Skywalker:   Tusken Raiders?




Tusken Raider:   Rrrooaarrr – rrrroooaaarrrr!
Graga:   (in Huttese)   Nooo!!!






Graga:   Uugghh…
Tusken Raider:  Rrrroooaaarrr – roooaar!





Tusken Raider:    Rrroooooaaaaaarr!!!










Jawa:   EEE-CHEE-YYYIIII!!!





Anakin Skywalker:   ……sandpeople……





Anakin Skywalker:   Stay with me, mom…
Shmi Skywalker:   ……I…love……………..




 Tusken Raider:   Rrrroooaaaarrr!!!





Anakin Skywalker:   NNNOOOOOO!!!




Anakin Skywalker:   ANIMALS!!!
Tusken Raider:   Rrrroooaaaarrr!!!




Anakin Skywalker:   I HATE YOU!!





Anakin Skywalker:   I wasn't strong enough to save you, Mom.  But I promise……I won't fail again.





Padme Amidala:   Annie, are you just going to sit here and let him die?? He's your friend... your mentor...
Anakin Skywalker:   He’s like my father……






Commander Cody:   General?  General Skywalker? 





Anakin Skwalker:   What is it, Commander?
Commander Cody:   Still no word from General Kenobi. 





Anakin Skywalker:   He’s alive……I can feel his presence.
Commander Cody:   We do have several reports of a speeder leaving the field of battle.





Anakin Skywalker:   Dooku…
Commander Cody:   And we’ve scoured the area, but can find no signs of the mysterious warrior.





Central Command transmission on comlink:   <bing bing>  We have found the homing beacon of General Kenobi’s BARC speeder.  It is coming from an area known as the Crystal Mines.





Anakin Skywalker:   Set course for the Crystal Mines!
Commander Cody:   Yes, sir!







Meanwhile, back at the Crystal Mines…



Count Dooku:   I hope your saber skills have improved since our last meeting, Master Kenobi.




Obi-Wan Kenobi:   You’ll soon find out!
















Obi-Wan Kenobi:   Ugh……




Count Dooku:   It’s a pity that the previous battle has weakened you.  Otherwise, this contest might actually be challenging.




Count Dooku:   Perhaps now you understand the true power of the Force!  The power that even Master Yoda fears!




Obi-Wan Kenobi:   Yoda doesn’t fear you, Dooku……and neither do I! 




Count Dooku:   You can say that……you may even believe that…




Count Dooku:   But I can feel you tiring……doubt entering your mind……fear of failing to end this War……




Obi-Wan Kenobi:   You won’t break me the way you did Master Bulq.




 








Count Dooku:   Who said anything about “breaking” you…




Obi-Wan Kenobi:   Ugghh…




Count Dooku:   Your attack lacks imagination, Master Kenobi.  Your stance……off balance.  No style at all.



Count Dooku:   Yet another sign of the continuing decay of the Jedi Order.




Obi-Wan Kenobi:   …….ugghhh……




Count Dooku:   Perhaps I was mistaken……a true Jedi would not be so easily defeated.




Count Dooku:   Disappointing to be sure……but not unexpected.




Obi-Wan Kenobi:   You won’t kill Anakin so easily, Dooku.




Count Dooku:   Hmph……indeed……




Count Dooku:   However, I don’t plan to kill you, Master Kenobi.




Count Dooku:   You serve another purpose.  You may proceed, Utapaun.
Obi-Wan Kenobi:   Wha???




Obi-Wan Kenobi:   UUGGGHHHH……




Sagev:   Die Je-edi!




Count Dooku:   STOP!  You will soon get your revenge, Utapaun.




Count Dooku:   Prepare for Skywalker’s arrival. 
Sagev:   Yes, Count Dooku.

DARK ILLUSIONS

ACT III

Chapter 48




With hopes of finding Obi-Wan Kenobi, the 212th Battalion race towards the Crystal Mines, led by Anakin Skywalker.



Anakin Skywalker:   There it is!  Pilot, land here!!




Commander Cody:   Troopers……secure the area!




Anakin Skywalker:   Obi-Wan is here…and he is still alive. 



Anakin Skywalker:   Commander, have the troopers stationed at every entrance to the Mine.  I’m going in alone.    If I do not return within the hour, destroy it.
Commander Cody:   Yes, General.




Anakin Skywalker:   (thinking)   I promise……I won't fail again……



Anakin Skywalker:   (thinking)   I sense……Obi-Wan……




Anakin Skywalker:   (thinking)   ……and something else…









Sagev:   DIE, JE-EDI!




Anakin Skywalker:   You…




Sagev:   No excuses this time, Je-edi!




Sagev:   No place to run……no place to hide!




Sagev:   Argh…




Anakin Skywalker:   Who wants to hide?




Buzzzzzzz




Sagev:   I’ll make you suffer, Je-edi!  The way my people have suffered!!!
















Buzzzzzzz








Force push!





Sagev:   Uggghhhh…








Sagev:   Aargghh!







Punch!
Sagev:   Ooof!




Sagev:   ……ugh……




Anakin Skywalker:   Ahhhh!!!








Buzzzzzzz
Count Dooku:   Excellent…




Anakin Skywalker:   No place to run……no place to hide……




Sagev:   I’m unarmed……you wouldn’t attack an unarmed---





Sagev:   AAAAHHHHHH!!!




Anakin Skywalker:   Where is Obi-Wan?!  TELL ME!!!




Sagev:   Je-edi scum……
Anakin Skywalker:   TELL ME NOW!!!




Buzzzzzzzz
Count Dooku:   I warned you, Utapaun…




Count Dooku:   I do not look kindly on mistakes.  You’ve served your purpose.




Sagev:   Je-edi……scum----BLEH!
FORCE CHOKE!




Anakin Skywalker:   Dooku!! 




Sagev:   Bleeeeeehhhhhhhhh……bleh………………………………………………




Buzzzzzzz
Anakin Skywalker:   What is that……noise?




Anakin Skywalker:   A probe droid!
SMASH!




Anakin Skywalker:   Dooku!!  Come out and fight!!! 




Anakin Skywalker:   Stop hiding and fight me---
Obi-Wan Kenobi:   ……uugghhhh……




Anakin Skywalker:   Master?!  Are you alright??
Obi-Wan Kenobi:   Oh, I’ve been better…can you free my hands?




Anakin Skywalker:   Where’s Dooku?
Obi-Wan Kenobi:   I don’t know.  The last thing I remember was that mysterious warrior attacking and ---




Anakin Skywalker:   ---he’s dead.  Come on, I got to get you out of here.  Commander……come in, Commander……this is Skywalker…




Commander Cody:   General Skywalker……we’re under attack!……General!………GRIEVOUS!







Meanwhile, in one of the Crystal Mines tunnels……


Commander Cody:   All units…OPEN FIRE!!!





Clone Trooper Zank:   Ugh!




Clone Trooper Wark:   I got him!




Clone Trooper Wark:   Aaaahhhhhh…
General Grievous:   Ha ha ha ha!




Clone Trooper Pry:   Target locked in.




Clone Trooper Pry:   Bleh!




General Grievous:   Clone Commander……
Commander Cody:   He’s over here!!!




Commander Cody:   Take him down!  NOW!  Take him---UGH!




General Grievous:   Call for help, Commander!  Call the Jedi scum!!




Clone Trooper Fraz:   Hold your fire!  We don’t want to hit the Commander!!




Commander Cody:   Forget about me!  FIRE!  FIRE! 
General Grievous:   Rrrrrrrrrrrr……




Commander Cody:   TAKE HIM DOWN-------
CRUNCH!




Clone Trooper Fraz:   OPEN FIRE!!!





Grievous shakes off his cape, and activates four lightsabers while running towards the Clones.

Clone Trooper Fraz:   Wha?!




Clone Trooper Fraz:   Look out!
Clone Trooper Baz:   Aaaahhhhh!
Clone Trooper Drex:   He’s too fast---




General Grievous:   Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!!




Count Dooku:   Time to go, General.  Our work is done here.  My Master will be most pleased.




General Grievous:   As you wish……




A few minutes later……


Commander Cody:   ……stay with me, solider……help is…on the way……




Commander Cody on comlink:   ………anyone there?……this is…Commander Cody……we need……medivacs……ASAP!!!





Obi-Wan Kenobi:   By the Force……we’re too late.
Commander Cody:   ……General Kenobi?




Commander Cody:   ……we……couldn’t……hold them……Grievous……and Dooku……
Obi-Wan Kenobi:   Save your strength, Cody.  We’re getting you out of here.
Anakin Skywalker:   Dooku was here?!




Anakin Skywalker:   We can’t let them escape, Master!  We can use the speeders to pursue them-----
Commander Cody:  Central command reports……Federation Starships……coming out of hyper space……attacking our ships……
Obi-Wan Kenobi:   Dooku’s escape plans, no doubt.  He was fully prepared for this.  This was never about Oner or the Crystal Mines.

 





Obi-Wan Kenobi:   We’re can’t do anything about Dooku now, Anakin.  There’ll be another time.  All we can do is treat the wounded until help arrives.  These troopers don’t have much time.
Anakin Skywalker:  (thinking)   But…………I can’t fail……again……I won’t…….
