Fandom: Star Wars

She kneels, a pinch of dust between forefinger and thumb. Overhead, grey clouds, darkening as they approach, rumble distantly. The dust between her fingers is red, dry, gritty. She almost purrs at the thought of the chase; they shall not escape if she has her way.

Dropping the dust as she rises, she studies their surrounds; twisted grey trees mar the otherwise flat landscape and dark orange twigs reach for the sky, almost lost to sight against the background of crimson dust and earth.

“What should we do now?”

A twist of her fingers and the droid crumples, falling to the ground in a mangled heap. “Guess I’m in charge,” a second droid mutters and steps to the right of its former leader. It doesn’t say a word; she smiles. Who says droids cannot learn?

“Guard the wreck,” she commands.

“Roger. Roger.”

By the time it turns to order the troops, she has gone. Fat drops tumble from the cloud, hard and fast. The droids scatter.

She grins as she runs. The downpour will aid her pursuit, not hinder.

I always enjoy writing for her; this is the first time, this and the other recent stories, I've written for her in years.

I think this line is very in character :) Nice write!
Again, thank you!

Foolish droid. It really should know better than to question Asajj.

Quite possibly, the 'it's a droid' argument might come into play on this one.

Nice to read about Asajj Ventress!!!
She's a delightful character to write about and I've not written for her in years so it's nice to know there'll be someone who likes to read them! (My hope is I can write them well!)

I like how you portray her character!
Thank you!
