Brief ROTS rewrite I still believe I was right. Small sacrifices for the greater good; lose the little battle and win the war. Still, looking down at the charred, truncated body of my former master, it all seems like such a waste. Master, mentor; friend and brother. He had the high ground, yes, but he always underestimated me.
So many Jedi fall to the dark side. They think that one slip and you're gone; doomed to become Sith without hope or redemption. I have a different view, of course; my entire life has been an ongoing struggle with my personal demons. I face every transgression against the light with a pang of guilt; in acknowledging the darkness within me I can better resist it.

If we could—plan—our lives would be much different. I think. It’s hard to say because this is how we’ve always been.
Our very togetherness is a result of impulse. I’m almost certain that the amount of time it took us to decide to move in together was significantly shorter than the amount of time it took us to remember each other’s names.
