Thanks for clearing that up. I just wanted to make sure because I'm going to write a post about it, from Studious' perspective, and I wanted to make
sure I wouldn't mess things up.
As for the direction Studious will take I have two paths I might go down. I've sent a U2U which describes these paths in greater detail.
I think I have good ideas for both of those two directions Studious could go down.
Here is the updated version of what my next post will look like. I'm posting it here first so we can fix any errors it may have.
As Studious recovers from the odd feeling he had a door opens and a figure and a droid pass through it. The droid aimed his weapon at Studious.
Studious: “Away put your weapon I mean you no harm.”
Shapeshifter: “If you want to survive you’ll help me.”
The Shapeshifter noticed Studious was holding his cane and moved to take it away from him. The old man pulled his cane away saying “Mine, or I will
help you not.”
The droid then deployed a robotic arm and grabbed onto the turret.
The old man began to beat the droid saying “Mine…Mine…Mine!”
Shapeshifter: “If you won’t relinquish your weapon…”
He then moved closer and assumed a fighting stance saying “…are you prepared to fight?”
Studious: “Of course, ....my shirt is....pre ripped.”
Shapeshifter: “Are you prepared to die?”
Studious: “Today seems like....an ok....day to die.”
The Shapeshifter walks toward him slowly and tries to strike the Colonel with his left hand.
The old man ducks and hits the Shapeshifter in the back with both hands.
The assailant then tries to strike Studious with his right hand.
The old man ducks again but this time “karate chops” the assailant in the neck.
The assailant lumbers forward but even the old man is able to outrun him and he passes through the passageway that the droid and Shapeshifter had
entered from. The droid moves to follow him but Studious is able to hide and it passes him by.
The old man is hidden close to the guest quarters and hears the door to the hall open. He looks into the room and sees the Shapeshifter change into
Studious’ form, torn shirt and all.
The old man stands shocked seeing what looks like a mirror image of himself. The only noticeable difference between it and him was the cane.
The door to the room closes and the Shapeshifter changes shape again and calls for the droid to return. Studious hides in the shadows as the droid
passes by again this time heading back toward the guest quarters.
Shapeshifter: “Did you find him.”
Droid: “No, but he entered the passageway. He must still be there.”
Shapeshifter: “Guard the door.”
Droid: “What if someone asks where he went.”
Shapeshifter: “Tell them he’s….gone."
Hearing this Studious takes off running through the maze of corridors. As he runs a door automatically opens as he passes near it. Cautiously he moves
towards it again and passes through it into a small dark room.
In the dark room he finds a bed and wires, a machine of some sort. The bed is several feet lower than the edges of the room and a few stairs connect
this raised area to the lower part of the room.
Then Studious turns and sees the figure appear behind him.
SS: “You have fought well.”
Studious: “Thank you....I....do all of my own stunts.”
The Shapeshifter picks Studious up and throws him over the bed in the room knocking over a few glass objects.
Studious gets up and approaches his attacker raising his cane. The Shapeshifter’s gun again transforms into a sword and he raises it as well.
Studious advances several times but the Shapeshifter retreats.
They then engage in a short duel.
SS: “You have learned much old man.”
Studious: “You’ll find I’m still full of surprises.”
The SS locks sabers with the old man and spins his sword. Studious grip on his cane fails and it goes flying.
The old man moves toward the short stairs in the dark room but without his cane he trips and falls down.
The Shapeshifter moves in quickly and places his sword near the old man’s face.
SS: “You are beaten, it is useless to resist. Don’t let yourself be destroyed as you did last time.
Studious eyes his cane.
SS: “There is no escape. Don’t make me destroy you.”
Studious eyes the room for an escape route.
SS: “They are coming for us…..both of us. Join me, with our combined strength we’ll be able to survive.”
Studious: “I’ll never join you!”
SS: “If you only knew the power that the shadow’s wield. They never told you what happened to your wife.”
Studious: “I knew enough, they didn’t need to tell me.”
SS: “No, I am your…”
Studious: “NO, NO! That’s not true, that’s impossible!”
Confused the Shapeshifter speaks again “No, I am your only link to the truth.”
Studious pulls his hand up into his sleeve, covering it, and then wipes his forehead with it while giving a sigh of relief.
Shapeshifter: “Studious, you can destroy those who did this. It is your destiny. Join me and together we can avenge those we’ve lost.”
Studious looks at the Shapeshifter’s outstretched hand.
Shapeshifter: “Come with me it is the only way…”
The fight over the cane in the beginning is based off of Yoda and R2D2 fighting.
