"UF dreams again, with Darth Vader"
 
   LAST EDITED ON Feb-01-19 AT 04:25 PM (EST)
 
I read Undocumented Features for the first time in years, and I get UF dreams. I guess that shows how deep it's embedded in me.

Not SotS, though, even though that's what I read the most of, which is why it's in here. :V From what I can remember, Darth Vader was telling Saionji and Anakin about how the Ancient and Obtenebrated Order of the Sith felt that hate could be a constructive and even a positive force. He compared it to forging a sword. Too much heat and the sword would lose its shape and melt; too little, and it would shatter on the anvil as it was hammered. Similarly, too much hatred would cause you to lose sight of what you were hating for, and eventually would cause the hatred to become your master instead of you its; too little, and your foe would shatter you.

But the best kind of hatred, he said, was the kind where you held it towards someone on your level, and it was tempered with another emotion, such as respect or even love. Then, the two of you could climb each other into the sky, like a ladder, with both parties improving after each encounter. This was the kind of hate that could move worlds, and in the dream he'd had some kind of Santovosku word for it, but I can't remember it now.

Then the dream degenerated into trying to play an ancient DOS flight simulator, but the emulator for it wasn't working right, and it probably wasn't UF-related anyway. And given how hard the Wedge Rats fight to preserve their peculiar segment of cultural heritage, the odds of a DOS flight sim being unemulatable would be next to nil anyway.

EDIT: I hadn't read Fulcrum V when I had this dream. Interesting that it came rather close to one of the major plot points.
