Furious With Nepharia

Furious with Nepharia, I arm myself with my lightsaver and a ysalamiri and I stride quickly down the hall of the Leviathan Loveboat.

I find her in the main promenade, amusing herself by bending the unsuspecting passengers to her will. Which abruptly stops when I come near her with the ysalamiri, whose natural defenses push the Force away from itself, and therefore anything or anyone in its immediate vacinity. She turns in surprise, her lightsabers snapping on.

"You? More trouble with the hot water in your room?" she asked sarcastically.

"Hardly. I'm here to protest your portraying me as a swooning flake whose sidekick can't even fix the hotwater in their room. Kirk can run a 9 unit press by himself if he has to...somehow, I think he can manage the hot water system of this ship. Especially since it's a living being. And I don't swoon." I flick the switch on my ornamental spear and the purple lightsaber shaft appears. "Ever. I might be a young blog character, who doesn't know who she is yet...but that does not give you the liberty to use my identity at your own whim. Even if you are a Dark Jedi."

"And what are you going to do about it?"

"I'd like an apology, and the promise that it will not happen again...but since I'm unlikely to receive such..." I raise my lightsaber onehanded, a sure sign of a novice...and as she begins to smile, no doubt already envisioning me without my lightsaber and on my knees begging for her mercy...I promptly shoot her with the blaster I had hidden in my other hand.

Her body thuds unconsciously to the floor and I look to the other contestants, "I am not a woman to be trifled with. Don't make me lodge an official protest. " I turn with a sweep of my cape, and return to my own ship.


---------------------

If you're wondering what that's all about...it's what I am considering posting on the LGS3 site in response to one of the other characters using my identity after I had been eliminated from the game. I will no doubt be subjecting myself to further humiliation...but it also depends on what Jon IG says about this post, and whether or not he [and maybe the judges] would come to my defense or not. I'm all for having fun, and am quite able to poke fun at my own self...but I'm no longer part of the game, and don't think that my identity ought to be continued to be used.

You tell it like it is, Ciera!

I sure wish you had come to me sooner -- I did not know that it would be that much of a humiliation or I would not have done it. Sorry again.
