Bearnard closed his eyes in the face of the

  • Bearnard closed his eyes in the face of the wind. The sound of water crashing around the ferry could not disturb his dream. He saw a sky, bruised with bold clouds, threatening to
  • release hectic rain and thunder if he did not do something. Something was wrong-everything in his body tingled weirdly. It was just another dream; he had them all the time.
  • Especially when he was performing surgery. He called it "Dream Surgery." It was probably due to the fact that he never slept. Energy drinks and The Old Republic had totally
  • become his reality. Whenever there was a problem it could always be fixed with a light saber, as long as one was awake. Today he was hosting a seminar on the topic "Avoiding
  • Confrontation with Your Father." He yawned. He was not getting enough sleep. He set up his light saber visual aid for the seminar & mentally rehearsed his talking points. He heard
  • a soft crackling as he realized too late his light saber set fire to the projector screen. "Damn," thought Vader. "We'll have to show the slides on Jabba the Hutt again."
  • The TED Talk crowd was patient with him. He was, after all, Darth Vader, & they wanted to hear his motivational speech. "You are," Vader breathed, "a most understanding audience."
  • One of Darth Vader's greatest worries in life was that a son of his might attend one of these twerpy TED talks, rapt with some guffy strutter, but Vader sensed his son quite elsewh
  • ere. Whoops, nope Luke was in the TED talk front ro . "So in conclusion, the Death Star required team effort and synergy. Any Questions?" Darth looked at the raised hand. "Dad?"
  • "Son, is that you? Luke!" Darth yelled. "I AM YOUR FATHER!" The audience roared as they strolled off the stage, hand in gloved hand. The farce is strong in with these two.

    I always forget one word I just read and accidentally break character. But then, I forget what I get up to do as I get up to do it. There's just no hope for me.
