Hello there ladies, gentlemen, and the rest of you folks! That’s right. I’m back. You guys get to listen to me ramble on about all the things once again! I’m here, I’m blue, get used to it. And as I assume command, I bring, for your consumption, a wee bit of fiction.
Crew Quarters, Voidbreaker
Early 36 ABY, 1210 Hours
Leeadra paced the floor. She always did when she was anxious and today was no different. One of these days, the Pantoran was certain she would wear a hole in the floor and fall through into what, if she remembered correctly, was the library. This time she wasn’t pacing because of a mission. No. Today she was pacing because not ten minutes ago, the Jedi had received a summons to appear before her Battleteam Leader, Lucine Vasano. Leeadra had interacted with Lucine a few times prior to this occasion but never had the redhead been so formal about her communications with her subordinate. Clearly, something was wrong. The Pantoran had screwed something up, and it was most certainly something big, she was sure of it. Why else would the human have requested a private meeting in her office?
Well, at least she isn’t trying to push me out the airlock.
Certain she was only delaying the inevitable, Leeadra straightened her robes, ran her hand along her braid, and left her quarters, headed for the office she knew all too well; after all, it had once been her own. The halls of the ship had never seemed colder or more barren of familiar and friendly faces than it was now. For a moment, she considered recruiting a friend to come along, perhaps Kelviin, but immediately thought better of it. Nothing good would come of dragging someone else into the mess she has created. The Pantoran certainly didn’t want to see someone else punished for her wrong-doing, so with a deep breath and a determined expression, she finished the last thirty meters of her journey. Before she could knock on the door the durasteel slid aside, revealing the red-headed human sitting behind the large desk on the far side of the room, typing away at a datapad.
“Ah. Lee. Please come in, darling. Do have a seat.”
Something was most definitely wrong. There was no anger in Lucine’s voice. Nervously, Leeadra approached the desk she had once been so fond of and sat in the seat placed in front of it which, admittedly felt quite strange. The Pantoran could feel her palms begin to sweat and, in a futile effort to calm herself, she rubbed them along the length of her thighs. With her anxiety very apparent in her voice, the Jedi began pleading her case.
“Lucine, please. Whatever I’ve done, I offer my sincerest apologies. I didn’t intend for any--”
A loud burst of laughter interrupted the blue-skinned woman in the middle of her rambling. Confused, the Pantoran tilted her head and raised an eyebrow. Clearly, Lucine had lost her mind. Did she not want an apology? Why had she called the Pantoran to her office. Seeing the questions on her subordinate’s face, the human adjusted the datapad still laying on the desk and faced the Jedi.
“Leeadra, dear. You aren’t here because you’ve made a mistake, in fact quite the opposite...."

This month on #asktheblueberry:
Donny asks: Out of every mentor you have ever had in your life what are the aspects of that mentor that you try and make use of when you train others?
Well, the short answer here is I try to lead by example. I tend to try and take everyone I can under my smol blue wings and teach them the tactics that were taught to me so that they might, one day, be able to fly on their own and teach their own baby birds. I’m not one who believes in tossing people into the fire to teach them what they need to know.
More from Donny: Have you posted in the Run-On yet? and do you intend to do so?
Sadly, I have not yet posted in the Run-On. I definitely intend to do so in the future, it’s just one of those things that I, once upon a time, tossed into my pile of junk that I need/want to do aaaaand then it kinda got buried underneath a bunch of other stuff that was of higher priority at the time. >.> Oops.
Donny also wants to know: Why don't you ever game with Q, Atra, Turel and the rest of us? are you in fact too good for us?
This is a lie. I game with Q and Atra. The rest of you are plebs, but Q and Atra are ok. I’m kidding of course. I also play with Kelviin. Who is obviously the best of all. :p (In all seriousness though, I’d love to play games with all of you. Time zones permitting of course.)
All THE QUESTIONS FROM GROT
Where do you see yourself a year from now? Do you plan to stay as BTL or would you take on a higher position?
A year from now, I’m not entirely sure. I certainly wouldn’t mind sticking around as BTL, but if I was given the opportunity to move up the ladder, I like to think that I would be eager to do so. Otherwise, honestly, things happen. If I’m not BTL in a year from now I’m not going to be upset about it. I’m always happy to support you guys from within the team rather than in front.
Are your bones also blue? If so, can I see?
Ya know what? I’m honestly not sure. I’ve already agreed to give you my skull once I’m done using it. If I find that I don’t need one of my other bones, I will certainly let you know.
Is a hotdog a sandwich?
No. A hotdog is a hotdog, silly.
Where did Lucine hide my refrigerator art?
I’m not entirely sure, but I have a feeling it got filed in the circular bin…
What's the number one tip you would give to a new member of the DJB?
Focus your early efforts on the Shadow Academy. It is easily the quickest way to advance through the early ranks. Also, don’t be afraid to talk to people, we come for the Star Wars, we stay for the people. <3
On a matrix running from lawful to chaotic and from good to evil, where do you lie?
If you had to marry a character from the DJB in real life, who would it be?
Can I marry myself? I’ll take Lee any day. If not, I would take Zuji in a manly fashion.
Are there any planned awards for best/most questions?
Not at the moment. Perhaps in the future, there shall be…
Tali asks: How is captain chair fitting smol andt blu? Is too big or brown? How is lekku-insurance policy under new BTL?
It appears that Lucine managed to adjust the height of the chair. My toes only barely touch the ground now. >.> I’ll have to get Kelviin in here to fix it. Otherwise, I love an oversized chair though. Lots of room for curling up and napping. I mean… doing… important captain work…
And all Lekku Insurance Policies will be respected and premiums are slightly reduced as we no longer have Skarbles around as a Lekku-related threat.
Elien asks: Can ferret girl hug the blueberry? (Don't actually answer that in the official thing, lol)
Of course ferret girl can hug the blueberry! All hugs are welcome! (And it’s too late. It’s in the report now! Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!)
I would first and foremost like to thank all of you for welcoming me back to the Captain’s chair with open arms and friendly hugs. It is both an honor and a privilege to be back here and writing reports and award recs and promotion recs and doing all the work in order to see you guys awarded and advancing and growing within our awesome little club here. There would be no Voidbreaker if it wasn’t for all of you wonderful people. So thank you. And here’s to a beautiful future with all of you and lots of fictions and all the glowing light swords. As always, if there are any questions, concerns, or cries for help, feel free to contact me via email ([Log in to view e-mail addresses]) or on Telegram (@LeeadraHalcyon). Until next time.
