⑪ I saw you → you saw the other person doing something bad and you need to confront them about it.

making shit up is a go, presumably for Anakin it's a bit after Ahsoka left the Order

[personal profile] morally_cryptic 2015-04-29 02:29 am (UTC)(link)
The thing about hyperspace that people don't actually think about is the quantum mechanics of it all. For almost everyone in the galaxy, it's practically a mundane experience. For a Jedi who's spent probably half his adult life in one starship or another, it's just become something he's used to by this point.

But perhaps he should have rethought setting his course so close to that one big gravity well on the way to rejoin the fleet at Lothal. Certainly, they could start the fight with the Seps without him, Admiral Yularen being more than capable. That didn't mean Anakin didn't want to be there when things started exploding. So to speak.

When he drops rather more roughly out of hyperspace than he expected only to find an almost totally serene planet in front of him, he's more than a little surprised. "Artoo, are you sure that's the right planet?"

Which, of course, just gains him a tootle of indignation about how the droid had set in Anakin's course just as he'd wanted and if it was the wrong planet it certainly wasn't Artoo's fault. And then a follow up tweet confirming that they were in fact now approaching Lothal.

A few minutes later when they can raise neither Obi-Wan, Yularen, or the Jedi Council over the HoloNet, Anakin's just left frowning. The Separatists had tried to take out HoloNet relays before, sure, but had they actually succeeded?

"Nothing for it, Artoo, we'll just have to see what we find on the surface." It's not like he's just going to turn around and go back.

[ooc: figuring he lands outside of town and the Rebels catch sight of the ship thankfully not the Imps and Ahsoka recognizes it and goes wtf?!?!? Does that work?]
fulcra: (( do you feel it ))

hope this works with what you had in mind!

Declared strange transmissions from Chopper could have meant any number of things and for a long moment, Ahsoka was sorely tempted just to give the eccentric little droid a pat on the head and go back to helping Ezra with his forms. But old encryption with those strange transmissions could either be signs of nostalgia or rebellion, refusal to update to the Empire's ways. She was that way herself, sometimes. She knew what she trusted and it was what she'd fought with before.

A few cautious questions of Chopper and Ezra was officially let off the hook for the moment as Ahsoka took advantage of the rest of the crew being otherwise occupied to commandeer one of their speeders, solemnly promising to return it in one piece as she pulled on her traveling hood and goggles, effectively hiding her lightsabers and obscuring her face. Half working on notes from Chopper and half on blind instinct, it didn't look like the fighter had been down long when she finally came close to it. What she saw and felt was so familiar that the only options seemed to be that either this person would absolutely support their cause or this was a terrible, terrible trap.

She kicked the end of the speeder out as she stopped some distance away, taking advantage of good eyesight to be more blurry to whoever this pilot was than they would be to her. And she waited.
morally_cryptic: (did you really just say that?)

yep! do you think she thinks he died in Order 66? I doubt she knows he became Vader?

[personal profile] morally_cryptic 2015-04-29 03:23 am (UTC)(link)
Even down on the ground, all Artoo could tell him was there was nothing come in over the frequencies either the Republic or the CIS were known to use. There was other traffic, of course, but most of it using codes Artoo wasn't familiar with.

"Well, this is just great," he mutters as he jumps out of his fighter. "Must be a trap." It seemed to be the only explanation that made sense so far.

Which is of course when he senses someone approaching and the presence was so familiar it had him turning in Ahsoka's general direction with something like relief. "Snips'll kno-..." then he frowns. Why would Ahsoka be here? Surely he's wrong. Either way, there's definitely someone out there watching him.

And that someone...isn't getting any closer. So he sighs and holds up a hand, "just going to stand around there all day?" he calls. Of course, his other hand is on his lightsaber, you know, just in case.

In her eyes, he must look either crazy or stupid, really. Being that he's flying a rather noticeable Jedi starfighter and he's rather blatantly wearing Jedi robes this close to an Imperial outpost really must mean he's one or the other. Right?
fulcra: (( intergalactic woman of mystery ))

ahaha until i have canon i'm going with "doesn't feel like he died but might be in denial"

[personal profile] fulcra 2015-04-29 03:46 am (UTC)(link)
( ooc : basically, i tend to try for the ambiguous route of her being pretty sure she would have felt him dying with everyone else, but something always told her that looking for him was a bad idea so she just tells himself he's dead and she has bigger things to worry about. )

Anakin. Anakin and Artoo, looking like they could be regrouping on the Resolute's flight deck at the height of the Clone Wars instead of on Lothal, so many years later. She wonders if it's possible that both her eyesight and the Force are tricking her, even as she stalls the speeder and steps off of it. It feels like Anakin and in no way does that feel right right now, so she withdraws into the Force, muffles that unbreakable bond between them as best she can, and approaches without making an effort to remove her goggles or hood. She's a long way from a teenager now, too, and that helps. Maybe.

Maybe they can just be strangers, baffling one another, she thinks. Maybe that's all they are.

"I'd be careful who you let see that weapon of yours," Ahsoka says, as if she can't feel the swing of her own dual sabers against her thighs with every step, hidden under layers for safety. "The local security will think you're a threat."

To be fair, he probably is a threat.
morally_cryptic: (you should really listen to me)

sounds reasonable to me!

[personal profile] morally_cryptic 2015-04-29 03:53 am (UTC)(link)
Anakin watches the stranger(?) approach, sizing her up for whether there's a threat her or not. Then again, they're rather well out into the open and there doesn't appear to be anyone else around for a few klicks at least. He doesn't sense anyone else, anyway. Then again, he could just be distracted by the nagging familiarity even if the sensation had diminished.

He glances down at his lightsaber and raises his eyebrows at her, "and here I thought the locals wanted me here." Well, him and a fleet of several Republic capital ships and all that came with it. Which he seems to be missing.

"Or did we lose the war in the last day or so and no one bothered to inform me?"
fulcra: (( only the force ))

[personal profile] fulcra 2015-04-29 04:02 am (UTC)(link)
She stops still out of arm's reach, but there's no denying it's him. Her old Master, almost exactly as she left him over a decade ago. That alone is enough to make her extra concerned. Is this a thing that Sith can do? Does she have the Emperor's Inquisitors to thank for this? Because it could be an awfully convenient way to turn an influential rebel crazy with doubt.

"Something like that," Ahsoka says, swallowing thickly. "I'm afraid you're rather lost, Master Jedi. I suggest letting that Artoo unit plot a course right back the way you came and hoping for the best."
morally_cryptic: (hey THAT's an idea)

[personal profile] morally_cryptic 2015-04-29 04:05 am (UTC)(link)
"Lost?" He shakes his head, "I don't think so. Unless this isn't Lothal?"

He's not moving closer to her, but he's definitely looking at her closely, as if trying to see behind those goggles and that hood. "Are you sure we haven't met? By the way."

It's odd to ask, but it's out before he can think better of it.
fulcra: (Default)

[personal profile] fulcra 2015-04-29 04:11 am (UTC)(link)
Shaking her head can mean any number of things, so strictly speaking, she's not lying to him. Lies by creative omission aren't really lies. Or they weren't by young Padawan logic, which seems to take some precedence here. It's for his own good.

"This is Lothal, but..." Right place, wrong time. Ahsoka can't even begin to wrap her head around it, so how can she try to tactfully explain it to him without bringing a thousand questions upon herself? She can't, probably, she realizes. "The battle you're here to fight was over years ago."
morally_cryptic: (did you really just say that?)

[personal profile] morally_cryptic 2015-04-29 04:14 am (UTC)(link)
That doesn't really help him. Because it doesn't actually make sense. "Years ago," he says flatly. "And what, exactly, is that supposed to mean?" Because non-answers aren't very good for his temper.

Yes, the fact that he has suddenly appeared over a decade in the future may take both some proving as well as some getting used to.

Wait till he finds out all the Jedi are gone.
fulcra: (( can't carry it with you))

[personal profile] fulcra 2015-04-29 04:22 am (UTC)(link)
The spike of irritation is so predictable that Ahsoka isn't sure if she would rather smile or be sick. Either way, she bows her head as she steps past him, heading for Artoo. Droids, unlike Anakin, work on irrefutable logic first and foremost. And Artoo still hadn't had a good wipe the last time she saw him, outside of this, so she has complete faith in this Artoo to help puzzle this out.

Either that, or this whole illusion will break because she's not succumbing to it like she should.

"The Clone Wars have been over for fifteen years." She can say that as calmly as she wants to, but she knows he won't believe it. "Perhaps your droid can help us determine what has happened to the both of you. Was there anything strange about your last jump?"
morally_cryptic: (looking back ohSHI-)

time for bed! will tag more tomorrow! :)

[personal profile] morally_cryptic 2015-04-29 04:29 am (UTC)(link)
Anakin tenses as she steps past him but it's only that there's really been nothing in her manner to suggest she's an enemy--even if she does sound crazy--that keeps him from stepping in her path. That and her words set him back a little.

The problem, for her, with droids who work on irrefutable logic and never get their memory wiped is that they're also very good at remembering things and matching them. Like voice patterns. So as Ahsoka approaches, she gets a rather cheerful warble of greeting that has Anakin's head whipping around to stare at the droid in surprise.

"Rough exit," he says a little absently, parsing through what he thought he just heard. "Nothing too strange."
fulcra: (( experience is everything ))


[personal profile] fulcra 2015-04-29 04:50 am (UTC)(link)
And there's that pang again, like she kind of wants to be sick, but it's hard to deny Artoo when he's so cheerful, so happy to see her. She leans over the astromech, a hand on his dome -- her bracers aren't the red she used to wear, but the warm sienna of her skin still shows on the fingers she keeps bare, further proof of her identity even as she wants to deny it to the man so out of time behind her -- and pitches her voice too low for Anakin to hear. Hopefully, strangers whispering to his droid isn't anything he's worried about today.

"I'm sorry, Artooy, but I need you to work with me here. He needs to go home, and soon." Louder, she adds, a little dry, "Maybe you broke hyperspace."
morally_cryptic: (determined)

I feel like somewhere Palpatine is going, "...I feel a disturbance in the Force..."

[personal profile] morally_cryptic 2015-04-29 10:39 am (UTC)(link)
That does it. "Haha, very funny." He takes a step forward and reaches out to close his hand around the arm she has outstretched in order to turn her to face him and not the droid.

"Now you're going to tell me who you are and what this is about." The irritation is still there, of course, getting fanned by the sneaking fear that what she's saying is true. But he doesn't trust someone whose eyes he can't see and he's not sure if he wants her to be who he almost thinks she is or if he wants her to be someone else entirely so he won't have to feel bad about snarling.
fulcra: (( definitely on plan n by now ))

lmao let's just hope vader isn't around to check on things

[personal profile] fulcra 2015-04-29 04:11 pm (UTC)(link)
Anyone else in the galaxy would have gotten a fight for grabbing her, but the togruta is oddly submissive as she lets herself get turned back to him. If this is some horrible trap, she still has time to fight. If it isn't, she's in no danger at all.

"It doesn't matter who I am, Master," she implores, shaking her head. Either she's a reverent civilian, aware of just how to address a Jedi she doesn't know, or some habits are really that hard to break. "What matters is that this war you're still in the middle of has been over for years and I don't know why you're here and now, but if the Imperials catch you, they'll kill you."

[Replying from email so no subject change but yes, that would be...awkward. :)]

His eyebrows raise at the honorific and of course now that he's touching her, the bond is harder to deny. "Ahsoka, can we stop playing this game?"

Even if she's taller than he remembers.

fulcra: (( changing protocol ))

[personal profile] fulcra 2015-04-29 06:05 pm (UTC)(link)
She wrenches her arm away from his, tugging her goggles down around her neck in one gesture and tossing back her hood in the next. There's no denying it's her visually, either, but the added height to her montrals, the obvious ageing of her face and lekku, aren't something that could have happened over weeks or months.

"It's not a game, Anakin!" Because there's no point in pretending to be subtle now. "I don't know what's going on, but you're in great danger."
morally_cryptic: (Default)

[personal profile] morally_cryptic 2015-04-29 07:18 pm (UTC)(link)

He can't really deny the evidence in front of him. Togruta don't exactly just sprout up in a few weeks, after all. Not like this. So at this point he's either still in hyperspace and having a horribly realistic dream while he dozes or he has to admit that maybe she really is telling him the truth.

In some ways, it's not actually the strangest thing to have happened to him.

Either way, it has him stepping back slightly, "okay...definitely not a game. What happened?" He means here, in the galaxy, to her, whatever he missed. Not what happened to him. They can try and work that out in a minute. Maybe.

fulcra: (( can't carry it with you))

[personal profile] fulcra 2015-04-29 07:45 pm (UTC)(link)
"A lot," Ahsoka says, raising her wrist to press a few buttons on her bracer. Once there's an answering, inquisitive whirr from her wrist, Chopper wanting to know if she's found what she was looking for, she turns back to Artoo. Chopper meeting Artoo and Threepio isn't a story she's heard yet, in so many details, so her intentions are good, even if this'll cause as many arguments as helpful discoveries. "I'm patching you in to my friend Chopper, Artoo. I want the two of you to go over flight data and figure out how this happened."

And then she looks back at Anakin and... that's not so simple.

"The Republic's gone," she finally manages, expression grim. "So is the Jedi Order. The Galactic Empire rules now and they work on a system of oppression and terror."
morally_cryptic: (Default)

[personal profile] morally_cryptic 2015-04-29 07:50 pm (UTC)(link)

There's at least one indignant squeal from Artoo at something Chopper says before Anakin shoots him a quelling look, "just do it, Artoo."

Easier to focus on that for at least a second or three before he lets the full import of what Ahsoka just said sink in. "They. We-......what????? Did the Separatists take over? How could we have lost? We're winning!"

If it was anyone else save maybe Obi-Wan or Padme, he wouldn't even begin to believe it. But this is Ahsoka, even if she's fifteen years in the future.

fulcra: (( experience is everything ))

[personal profile] fulcra 2015-04-29 08:00 pm (UTC)(link)
"You don't win or lose the war," she says with a shake of her head, as grim and terrible at that is. She can't bring herself to be too evasive with this, not knowing what he does. And not with him being who he is.

"It... comes from within. Once the Jedi were exterminated, it was easy to change things to fit the Emperor's will."
morally_cryptic: (Default)

[personal profile] morally_cryptic 2015-04-29 08:06 pm (UTC)(link)

In a way, he can believe that. The Jedi had suspected Dooku's Sith master was manipulating the Senate, after all. That doesn't mean it doesn't still feel like a punch to the gut. Worse than that, really.

"Who could possibly exterminate the Jedi?"

Who, indeed.

fulcra: (( do you feel it ))

[personal profile] fulcra 2015-04-29 08:14 pm (UTC)(link)
"The Sith."

That's the obvious answer, the one that's easy to say and easy to predict. But Anakin's fought Ventress and Dooku so much that he could never be convinced that a handful of Sith could take out the whole Order in anything resembling a fair fight. Of course, it was anything but fair.

She frowns a little, expression sad as she adds, "And the clones. Who to better kill a Jedi than their troops?"
morally_cryptic: (totally repentent rly)

[personal profile] morally_cryptic 2015-04-29 09:18 pm (UTC)(link)
"The clones?" He thinks of Rex's loyalty, of course, "they wouldn-..." and then he's got a flash to a memory of Fives, desperate, trying to convince him of a plot to kill the Jedi.

Somehow, he finds himself sitting on the edge of the fighter, "I didn't believe him," he murmurs, gaze gone distant.

Certainly she's seen Anakin upset before, but that was nothing compared to this blow.

"Fives?" Who else, she thinks; she knows the story from Rex and knows the results from... well, the clones who haven't tried to kill her. She only wishes it wasn't such a small minority of them.

"Even if you had believed him, you wouldn't have been able to do anything," Ahsoka continues, shaking her head, folding her arms across her stomach and under the sides of her cape, like a Jedi folding her arms into her robes for something to do with her hands. She probably picked it up from Obi-Wan, after all. "The Sith would never have allowed you to convince the Council that there was a threat of that magnitude. They would have found a way to refute his evidence, to dismiss it as insignificant."

It's not your fault, she doesn't say, because she's not so sure, but that's the feeling, at least.

He nods, not asking how she knew who he was referencing. It doesn't matter now. Fives is dead.

And he doesn't believe that there was nothing he could do. Maybe he was the Chosen One. Maybe this was all his fault. Maybe he'd failed.

Maybe there was still a chance. "Who?" he asks, rising. "Dooku's Master, who is it?"

Because of course the idea that it was Palpatine hasn't even crossed his mind.
