Sith Contest Entry Piece
So there is a contest at "StaraWars4Ever" to portray a Star Wars character in Sith form, so I thought I'd try this. It's a scene from my "Revenge of the Sith" Saga story, #8.
SPOILER ALERT!! (If you have not read through the Saga stories in my gallery)
The scene is taken directly from the movie where Obi-wan confronts Padme about Anakin turning to the Dark side. The difference is the appearance of Asajj Ventress who has become Obi-wan's friend and tries to help him in the chaos of Palpatine's rise to power.
The other difference to this scene is a plot twist that has been building over several stories involving Jar Jar Binks.
Now, I know most of you find it silly to ever have considered the possibility of Jar Jar becoming a Sith, but I saw this as a challenge back in 2006-07.
Jar Jar becomes a Senator in "Attack of the Clones", and closely associates with Palpatine and the Senate. What if that cute, goofy alien had actually become a corrupt politician....and that his close association with Palpatine unlocked a Force sensitivity within him. His hunger for power would grow, and Palpatine/Sidious would indulge him in the Arts of the Sith.
Much of this arc is so very subtle over the saga stories. Jar Jar changes in attitude, in small ways, and hides his dark nature until his attack on Gungan City in Story #7, "Reversal Of Fortune", right at the end. He feels the Dark side flow through him, and with the destruction of the Temple, he becomes bold enough to attack Obi-wan in this scene....
The scene is probably unintentionally funny, but if read in context with Jar Jar's overall fall into darkness, especially his scenes in Story #7, it becomes more horrifying. Read and enjoy.
CUT TO- PADME'S APARTMENT, DAYTIME
(Obi-wan and Ventress are with Padme, hoping to get answers)
Obi-wan: When was the last time you saw him?
Obi-wan: Do you know where he is now?
Obi-wan: Padme! I need your help. He's in grave danger.
Padme: From the Sith?
Obi-wan: From himself.
(He gently grabs her arm)
Obi-wan: Padme, Anakin has turned to the dark side.
(She gets irritated)
Padme: You're wrong! How can you even say that!?
(He walks away, reluctant to answer)
Obi-wan: I have seen him, in a security hologram.....killing younglings.
Padme: Not Anakin! He couldn't.
Obi-wan: He was deceived by a lie! We all were. It appears that the Chancellor is behind everything, including the war. Palpatine is the Sith Lord we've been looking for! After the death of Countv Dooku, Anakin became his new apprentice
(Padme walks away, devastated)
Padme: I don't believe you. (whispers) I can't.
(She sits down. Ventress cautiously sits next to her)
Asajj: Please, Padme. We must find him.
(Padme looks at both of them in horror)
Padme: You're going to kill him aren't you?
(Obi-wan steels himself to the reality they must all face)
Obi-wan: He has become a very grave threat.
(Padme looks away with tears forming in her eyes)
Padme: I can't....
(Obi-wan looks at her and comes to a realization. He gets up and walks a few steps, then turns)
Obi-wan: Anakin is the Father, isn't he?
(everyone remained quiet. Nobody could comment. Obi-wan and Ventress got up to leave)
Obi-wan: I'm so sorry....
(A terrible presence makes itself known. A horrible, but familiar voice cracks the quiet. A familiar voice that has come to sound....unnatural. Essence of the Dark side floods the room as a robed figure enters)
Jar Jar: Meesa sorry too.
(With a horrible animal screech, Jar Jar lights up his reds saber and charges at Obi-wan, growling with horrible teeth, blood dripping from his jaw. The three of them are shocked at Senator Bink's turn to darkness. Obi-wan and Asajj defend themselves quickly, but Jar Jar is a vicious opponent. He slashes at them, leaping around and probing them for weaknesses)
Obi-wan: I don't believe it! Jar Jar.....how could you have fallen so far?
(CU of Drool and spit flying from Jar Jar as he scowls)
Jar Jar: Meesa have real power! Meesa learn the dark arts. Palpy gives us power! Meesa gonna have a collection....like Grievous!
(Jar Jar went into a flurry of attacks at them. Padme screamed at the horror of the darkness on his face. Obi-wan is pushed to the edge of the landing pad outside Padme's apartment. Asajj tries to attack, but Jar Jar swings his blade so hard, she is knocked back. Jar Jar swings wildly at Obi-wan, then uses his Forces powers in an attempt to launch Obi-wan up and off the edge, into the traffic below)
(CU of Asajj as she reaches out in desperation, barely pulling Obi-wan back to the ledge)
(POV watches Jar Jar charge at her. He waves the saber like a club, burning her hand, her arm, and both legs. Scarred a bit, she collapses to the floor. Obi-wan gets up to run towards Jar Jar, but the Gungan grabs Asajj's head with sharp claws. Obi-wan hesitates for a second as Jar Jar Binks, once one of the most charming, harmless beings he had ever known, grins with fangs, bloodied gums and bloodshot eyes that have soaked in the powers of the Darkside)
Jar Jar: Meesa gonna kill you now, Kenobi....then weesa gonna have fun!
(CU as Jar Jar sticks his tongue on Asajj's face. She grimaces in disgust)
Assajj: Well, Obi, either kill him or KILL ME!
(A shot rings out. Jar Jar winces, then looks over at Padme, who holds a blaster. Asajj takes advantage of the distraction and punches the Gungan. She dives away as he doubles over in pain. Obi-wan leaps at him. In seconds it is over. As a Sith, Jar Jar had some power in his fight, but not enough skill. Obi-wan impales him. Jar Jar sneers with contempt as he clutches Obi-wan and rips at his chest. Obi-wan screams in pain from skin and clothes being torn, bloody wounds being scraped across his body. Ventress lunges at the beast and decapitates him. They throw the body away over the ledge)
Asajj: Let me help you!
Obi-wan: *groans* thank you.
(Padme runs out, horrified at the site)
Asajj: Will she be ok?
Obi-wan: I doubt any of us will be ok after this!
Asajj: Yeah....he was the last person I would have expected to fall....
(She helps him up, they limp for the hovercar. He stops and looks at her)
Obi-wan: Are you all right?
Asajj: (quietly) Yes. My Knight in dirty bathrobes keeps saving me from grisly villains and assassinations.
Obi-wan: Your knight in dirty bathrobes needs a band aid, maybe two....and we'll need to catch up with Padme. I suspect she is going after Anakin. Come, let us hurry.
