#NaNoWriMo Day 5 | The Darker Side – Musings of the Master
And now an excerpt from my first draft of The Darker Side – Musings of the Master | A response to Darth Vader’s Memoirs of a Monster
And for a time, this is exactly how it worked out. For years I lived a double life, masquerading as an untarnished politician that served as as Naboo’s ambassador in the Galactic Senate. My, my, that seems so long ago. During the blockade of Naboo by the Trade Federation I was elected to Supreme Chancellor, and then a few years later, given emergency powers to prevent civil war. From there, after an attempt on my life, I initiated the first galactic empire. But I’ll get back to that…I’m getting ahead of myself again.
No matter. It was I who restored the Sith to their glory and purpose and destroyed the Jedi Order. It was I who slowly deceived, no, manipulated the political system of the Galactic Republic and engineered the crises that granted me emergency powers and—and eventually complete rule over the galaxy through fear and tyranny for the purpose of the greater good—to ensure safety and security throughout the galaxy. Plagueis only deceived himself with his grand thoughts of whatever. He should not have kept things from me. He was not a man of integrity. Not like I am.
