Star Wars: Order 66 - Hoofed_Writing

The clones have turned and the Jedi are being slaughtered.

  • ...

The Jedi fall

My hoof beats rang through the halls as I ran. I could still hear the four words that played over the intercom "initiate order sixty-six," at first we were confused but then clones turned on me and the others. I managed to jump out of the way and run into the nearest hall just as they open fired. After that Order 66 made sense, it was to eliminate all Jedi on sight.

Star Wars: Order 66 (Pony Edition)

Currently I was running to the hanger my only hope for survival. In there I could grab a star ship and flee to the nearest Jedi temple.

As I ran through the endless halls I reached out with the force hoping that some Jedi was still alive. From what I could gather most of the Jedi were dead or had already fled. As I rounded a corner I heard a soft pew that could have come from only one thing ; a blaster. I dive, crashing into the floor winding myself as a blaster bolt sizzled over my head nicking my mane. Looking up I see theres only one and it's an earth pony, lucky me. I hop up and run at the clone using the force to accelerate myself. As I near the clone I jump forward crashing my shoulder into his chest knocking him sideways giving me time to run.

I kept running for the longest time dodging blaster bolts and searching for Jedi before a huge problem revealed itself. As I peeked through one of the open doors that lead into the hanger I gasped. Inside there was a battalion of Clone Troopes lead by 3 ARC Trooper captians who where giving out commands like they were candy. Pulling myself back I try and think of a way out of this. Knowing that by now all the key points in the base where controled by clones, it would take some seriously heavy fire power to get through them. I knew what I had to do, yes, more running and force searching. With a sigh I push off the wall and turn tail to canter down the really long hall way.

The silenced had been slowly killing me for some time, as I ran sending out the force every once and a while still looking for my fellow Jedi. Sometimes I would see a clone but luckily for me they didn't see me. Well right untill I ran right ino a squadron of them.

We stared at each other for before the ARC captain broke the silence.

"Get him!" and with that he and the rest of the clones powered up their blasters and started to fire at yours truly.

I fell back on my haunches from surprise as the blue tinted death lasers sped towards me. I managed to roll of to the side as the bolts hit the wall behind me with much vigor. But before I could react there was a bright silver flash and a hum that I was way too familiar with as the ARC Trooper's head fell to the floor and his body slumped after it. Standing next to the dead clone was the Jedi historian Quillian Inkheart.

We locked gazes for an instrant as he posed like this was some action movie. It didn't last long due to the fact that one of the clones started to aim for him.

"Look out!" in this dire situation I had to use a technique that I rarely ever used ; saber throw. Grabbing my lightsaber using the force I unholster it and fling it forward. As it soared through the air homing in on the clone the purple light blade was revealed and sliced the clone right down the middle ending his life.

After the little dispute was ended we both sheathed our sabers and finaly greeted each other.

"Its nice to see somepony who isn't dead or trying to kill me," I chuckled at Quillians remark.

"Same here, I'm getting pretty tired of runing from these damned clones," after saying this I look up and down the hall to make sure no clones had heared the commotion and were here to check it out.

Even though we where alone I shoulder Quillian and march forward going down the hall "We should keep moving down the halls," he simply nodded his head and followed my trail.

As we aimlessly wandered the halls we started to hear the clopping of hooves. We turned about to see an ARC trooper heading straight to us. Both of us pulled out and activated our sabers ready to fight the lone trooper.

Before I could run out to face the trooper head on Quillian thrust out a hoof to stop me, "wait! -" I looked at him quizzicaly "- that isn' an ARC that's a NUL." I look at the clone to see. And sure enough the clone was a NUL Trooper and not an ARC.

The NUL slowed to a canter and greeted us "Thank the heavens you're alive," both Quillian and I sigh in relief see it was a rampet.

Seeing this gave me a brilliant idea, "And just the same for you, follow me," I run off and the two just follow with out question.

I lead them to the hanger and stoped outside the door. With a hushed voice I tell the two thers my plan, "here is what we are going to do, NULy here will take us -" I point my hoof at Quillian and me "- To that ship in there saying that we are wanted by the empire,"

The two chewed over the plan for a few moments before Quillian spoke up, " So I get to be a prisoner?" I nod my head and he rolls his eyes.

It took longer for the NUL to respond but when he did it was a simple shrug and then he pushed us into the hanger.

Our shouts brought the attention of all the clones in the hanger who trained their guns on us.

"Hold your fire these two are for the empire!" I was happy to see the NUL was truly on our side.

The first to respond was one of the ARC captains " Oh yea, says who?"

I swear that if our partner here didn't have a helmet on we would have seen the biggest grin ever, "Why NUL -0012 of coarse," All the clones in the room droped everything and gave a salute.

"Sorry sir, we will get out of your way sir," I'm so happy that the chain of command wasn't messed up.

So all three of us managed to get on the ship safely and when we closed the hatch we all took a deap breath. "Thanks NUL," and with that we left dock and went into hyper space.

* * * * *

As we escaped the jaws of death NUL grabed his helmet gave it a quick twist and lifted it to reveal...her face?!

Both Quillian and I qauked at the sight she simply rolled her eyes "What never seen a female clone before? By the way I'm Nova," we stood there in shock for a while before answering.

"Um...I'm Ink Quill and this is Quillian Inkheart," as soon as I finished my sentence we jumped out of hyper space to find ourselfs at a lustful green planet, surrounded by the empire fleet. A few moments later we get a holo message from a pony who was hooded calling out for help but I knew who it was... my master.

Author's Note:

Wow this... this was really cool I have to admit and as soon as I put the final period I could here the star wars theme start to play. XD

Obi-Wan doesnt need to be on the high ground, the high ground just needs to exist within the battle; Obi-Wan knows that when he has the low ground, he really has the high ground, from a certain point of view.

Look at his battle record:
Maul: Has low ground, wins

Dooku: No high ground, loses

Dooku rematch: No high ground, loses

Greivous: Has low ground, wins

Vader: Has high ground, wins

Vader rematch: No high ground, loses

Obi-Wan with the high/low ground is canonically the most powerful Jedi. This is fact. Had Yoda not denied his request to battle The Senate with typical Jedi arrogance, Obi-Wan could have defeated Palpatine in the Senate building, which housed a variety of different altitudes; this was designed so that the Chancellor could always have the moral high ground in political debates. But Obi-wan didn't fight The Senate, and Yoda soon learned that you cant cleave the Sheev in a normal 1v1. It took the Tusken Raiders years of conflict against Old Ben Kenobi to grasp his superiority in terrain advantage, as you see them visibly flee in ANH when they realize he holds the low (inverse-high) ground; this was the optimal strategy against a near-invincible opponent.

Yoda is shorter than virtually every other fighter, which gives him a permanent low-ground disadvantage; however, his saber-fighting style utilizes a flipping-heavy technique in order to negate this weakness for a temporary window. Youll notice that, after falling from the central podium in The Senates building, he immediately retreats upon realizing he is on the lowest ground. Youll also notice that, while training Luke, he rides on him like a mount, to gain the intellectual high ground and accelerate Lukes training. Obi-Wans defensive Form III lightsaber style synergizes with his careful military maneuvers; as he only strikes when prepared, he can always hold the strategic high ground. (The business on Cato Neimodia doesnt count.) Youll come to realize that this is why Commander Codys artillery strike failed against Obi-Wan, when hundreds of Jedi were killed in similar attacks. Cody failed to grasp the strategic situation, as the Jedi Masters elevation was superior to his by hundreds of meters, making him virtually unkillable. (Youll notice that all the Jedi killed in Order 66 were on level ground with the clones, thereby assuring their demise.) Had Cody taken his time and engaged the Jedi on even terrain, he would have succeeded. Obi-Wan subsequently retreated under the surface of the lake, so that he could maintain the topographical low/high ground. This is why Obi-Wan is so willing to fight against impossible odds to the point where he thrusts himself in immediate danger; when your probability of victory is 1-to-10, you have the statistical (and therefore strategic) low ground, a numerical advantage when you use your point of view to flip the value to 10/1 . Almost losing is, in Obi-Wans case, certain victory.

As we all know, spinning is a good trick. However, only the Chosen One can spin outside of a starfighter. Palpatine tried spinning, but he lost due to this technique (but this was intentional, as losing gave him the emotional high ground when Anakin arrived). The reason for this is that spinning provides a yin-yang approach to combat (based in Eastern philosophy on balance), giving the spinner the high ground from above and below. Only the Chosen One can master the spin, as it is their destiny to maintain balance in the universe. This is why Obi-Wan was so emotional after defeating Vader on Mustafar; he expected to lose the high ground to the spin, but Anakin fell to the dark side and could no longer use his signature trick, becoming the very thing he swore to destroy. Additionally, Anakin told Obi-Wan that, from [his] point of view, the Jedi are evil. This broadens Anakins mind to the concept of relativity in the context of the moral high ground, a mere step away from tactical comprehension.

Anakin doesnt hate sand for the reasons he told Padme; all Jedi hate sand, as the battlefield can rapidly change between low and high ground on multiple vectors, so your perspective must be from a certain three-dimensional point of view in order to comprehend who holds the high ground. This is the only reason why Obi-Wan killed Maul in Rebels. This is also the reason why Obi-Wan hates flying; there is no gravity in space, therefore there is no high or low ground from any frame of reference (This also negates the spinning trick). In ANH, Vader proves his newfound mastery by engaging Obi on perfectly even ground. However, Obi-Wan intentionally sacrifices himself on the Death Star, so that he could train Luke from a higher plane of existence, thereby giving him the metaphysical high ground.

Why was Vader so invested in the construction and maintenance of the Death Star? Because he knows Obi-wan cant have the high ground if theres no ground left. As seen through the events of the Clone Wars, Obi-Wan was known to be on friendly terms with Senator Organa, whose homeworld held large quantities of mountainous terrain, the perfect habitat for a Jedi Master. Grand Moff Tarkin was already in position to destroy Alderaan as a first target, as the distance from Scarif to Alderaan was too vast to reach between the escape and recapture of the Tantive IV, even at 1.0 lightspeed. Alderaan had been the initial target all along, as Obi-Wan with the high ground was the primary threat to the Death Star. How? Because a moon-sized space station would have some form of gravitational pull, thereby negating Obi-Wans zero-gravity weakness; Obi-Wan with the perpetual high-ground in a low-orbit starfighter would easily be able to fire proton torpedoes through a ventilation shaft, although the Empire was uncertain of the specific weakness of the Death Star planted by Galen Erso (who was a good friend).

<p>In Return of the Jedi, you can see that the Throne Room contains a variety of different altitudes; Palpatine placed these there to ensure Vaders defeat. However, Sheev failed to realize that his weakness was no ground, and should have covered that useless gaping pit which does nothing.

<p>A common misconception is the idea of a prostrate position version of the high ground, wherein Obi-Wan lies flat on his back, giving him tactical superiority from his point of view. However, this strategy is futile, as for the high ground to come into effect, there must be a differential between parties on both the x-axis and y-axis to a moderately significant variation from both absolutes (Angles only a Sith would deal in). For Obi-Wans high ground powers to be in full effect, he must stand between 15 and 75 degrees (π/12 to 5π/12 radians) diagonal from his opponent(s) on any quadrant of the area circle; this has been dubbed the Trigonometric Perspective Diagram. The total effect for conventional high ground advantage can be calculated via the MetaComm Equation, or f(x) = lim 0→x π/12 | 7π/12 5π/12 | 11π/12 Ʃ(x) (2tan(x) / 3sin(x) + (log10Δ)) * cΦ

Δ = distance on hypotenuse (meters)

Φ = Surrounding Force [c (variable) * β (Earth Gravity) * (pressure (psi)/2.2)]

<p>&#39;x&#39; refers to the angle of contact between the two parties on, with advantage being based purely on position on the Y-axis, as the vast majority of force users base their perception on elevation rather than spacial relativity. The power of gravitational force has great effect on the high ground; too weak, and the high ground holds no traction; too strong and the ground becomes the real enemy. Experimentation has proven that the high ground typically holds significant value between .8 and 1.4 β (Earth Gravities) with maximum impact standing roughly equal to 1.05.</p>

Pressure is equally important, as it is a surrounding force attached to gravity (the high ground has famously low impact in aquatic environments). Pressure(λ) is measured in pounds per square inch (psi), to be used as a gravity multiplier (or division if pressure is sub-atmospheric; Φ (Surrounding Force) is a variable defined as β * 2.2λ , with no metric value assigned due to its singular application in the MetaComm equations.

In situations regarding Obi-Wan and his relativistic point of view, you must substitute the Quadrilateral MetaComm Equation (the Jedi Master function), f(x) = lim 0→x minmaxƩ (2tan(x) / 3sin(x) ) * (1.2)cΦ [min = (|cos(x)| = 1) | (|sin(x)| = 1) + π/12 ), max = (|cos(x)| = 1) | (|sin(x)| = 1) + 5π/12 ].

The viable Φ field is expanded, as Obi-Wan has taken advantage of the high ground in so many different environments that he simply uses it more efficiently, and the min/max values apply due to his multidimensional point of view, evidenced by the Trigonometric Perspective Diagram. Additionally, the distance factor does not affect Obi-Wan, as spacetime can be perseptively compressed, giving him the ideal Δ value from his point of reference.

In conclusion, Obi-Wan abuses spatial relativity and Taoist doctrine in order to always invoke his high-ground powers. To properly analyze the strategic genius of Kenobi, one must hold advanced knowledge in Philosophy, Mathematics, and Calculus-based Physics, and be able to integrate these topics together.
