I’m getting real sick of the attitude of a lot of Jedi. Just because me and mine aren’t force sensitive doesn’t mean we aren’t worth a little bit of common decency. We’re more than just meat shields for their reindeer games, or targets to mind fuck when they get irritated.
And unfortunately, it’s starting to feel like some of our allies in the Marran don’t see it that way. That just because we’re not special snowflake force sensitive darlings, we don’t deserve the basic respect that jedi practically demand just by their presence.
I’m getting really sick of people idly throwing around references to “mindkriffing” people like they’re talking about picking up a cup of caf. Getting really sick of patching up my boys in blue because they took a force blast to the chest and took to the air like a bird in an Alderaan spring, just to make some space for a jedi to run in and start swinging with their glowbat and get all the credit and glory.
Sith bleed just as good from blaster fire as the next fucker, and I don’t care how all powerful they are, one Sith can’t deflect sustained fire from a dozen blasters at once.
And I know I ain’t the only one who feels this way.
Bald nearly went to blows with Ihlrath on the Hyperion last night. Because one of Ihlrath’s people told Oz to go home… and Oz tried to walk out the airlock on their hangars. Put that idea right in his head. I might not like Oz - shit, that’s the understatement of the year - but I’ve saved his ass enough to know how he bleeds. They tried to say it was “just a suggestion”, but with everything Bald’s going through, dealing with Red…
It was nasty.
And the thing is, I don’t think any of the forcers get why he was so angry. They don’t - or refuse to - see the ramifications of being able to just look at someone and make them think “Oh, I should go” but not have any control over how they’re going to do it. To just idly affect someone’s actions like that, to take away their control? It makes them no better than Sith. Absolutely no better than those fucks who screwed up Red’s brain so badly.
And it didn’t help that Bald and I were in a little tiff not thirty seconds before Oz came wandering by, brain all scrambled. About Red. Because I guess I don’t know when to stop poking the bear when it comes to her.
And Nia’s probably mad at me now, too. I told her I was trying to track down where Dhen fucked off to when he transferred out. I want to drag his ass back by that busted nose of his so Nia can properly kick it for treating her like shit. For fucking off without even saying so much as goodbye. I deserved a goodbye, and she deserved a whole lot more than a shitty letter.
Fuck, man. Last night just sucked.
