A Growing Family

Yesterday, 01:49 PM

It made no sense to be this nervous. This hadn't been the first time and if it was up to Ishana alone far from the last, but Kaalia had already come out of the bathroom and made her way to the living area without being able to muster the courage needed to look at the pregnancy test she clutched in her left hand. Her heart was racing, her mind shot from one place to another and she began pacing nervously, but she was glad that at the very least her wife was in upstairs with Xariah and Xarielle instead of here seeing her have a near-nervous breakdown. The redhead sighed heavily as she crashed down onto her usual spot of the couch, then nodded to nothing in particular to instill some level of confidence in herself.

 

Kaalia, deep down, already knew the test result. She felt it in the Force and it had never lied to her before. A small spark of a presence went wherever she did, it small and weak but the bond she felt with it was incredibly powerful. This really was no more than a confirmation of something she already knew, yet it was also something more. This was Ishana's way of knowing.

 

With the test still in her clutched fist she held it in front of her, the result obscured by the fingers that wrapped around it. Another sigh. "Fine. Let's just do it," she said to herself as her fist slowly opened up. What she saw made her heart skip a beat. Two lines. Positive. Although it wasn't truly a surprise, the feeling of shock that would quickly turn into excitement washed over her all the same. An uncontrollable smile took hold of her as she let out a small sequence of happy noises that nobody was ever going to know about. The first thing that came to mind was rushing upstairs to show Ishana, but she stopped herself after shooting back up onto her feet. One look at the small white stick later the woman had devised a plan.

 

 

 

With the pregnancy test no longer on her person, Kaalia made her way up the stairs and followed the sound to get to where her wife and daughters were. The three most important people in her life, she would often call them, and nothing could have been more true. And soon another would join them. She slowly opened the door to make sure she wasn't a sudden interruption and with a soft smile she walked over towards Ishana to give her a kiss before picking up Xarielle and holding her in her arms. "What are we up to here? Ready for sleep?" Out of the two mothers Kaalia was the one who was more strict about bedtimes, but she tended to be the more worrying one in general.

A Mirror to the Past

Avacyn knew that it was highly unlikely the invitation she had sent out would be answered, if it was even received. The last time she and Samka Derith, who also carried the name Decitus Ren, had spoken was long ago and had been nothing short of a hostile encounter. It was a time before Kaalia had taken up the title of Darth Avacyn, when she was among the ranks of the Knights of Ren- it seemed like lifetimes ago now. Her connections to the Sith had branded her as a traitor, something that carried heavy consequences. She was brought to an inch of her life, her memories were altered and she was exiled, all by Samka's hand. Yet, with the perspective time had given her, she had come to realize that if that had not happened, she wouldn't have been where she was now. And that did not even touch upon the fact she hadn't simply been killed for her actions like so many others who had done the same thing.

 

For many years, however, Avacyn did not even recall ever being one of the Ren. Only recently did she even find out her memories were lying to her and with the help of her fellow Sith Lady Taeli Raaf, the falsehoods planted in her mind were finally removed. Samka was one of the people she remembered now and after debating whether to do so for months the woman decided she wished to speak to her again. Thus she reached out through any means available that had even the slightest chance of reaching Samka, stating a planet, a place, and a date. Dromund Kaas, the citadel of the Triumvir of Strength, on what was now present day.

 

Inside of her private chambers Avacyn kept herself occupied with the datapad on the desk she sat at. She was working on her book outlining the basics of elemental Shaping, the Force techniques native to her homeworld of Kro Var. There wasn't much out there for people to study, whatever literature was out there consisted of ancient texts kept safely stored away by whoever owned them. She hoped to change this and make Shaping available to those who wished to learn it, and this book would be the first step towards that goal. Her work was cut short however, when she heard a knock on the door to her chambers.

 

"Enter."

 

A guard stepped through the doorway and gave her a slight bow. "Milady, a, well, young lady has requested to see you. She identified herself as Decitus."

 

For a moment surprise overcame the redhead as she turned her head towards the guard. Against all expectations it seemed she had indeed decided to honor her request. "She is the guest I was expecting. Guide her here and if there is anything she wishes, see to it."

Valkyrie fortress

Undisclosed location, Mygeeto

Vaylin

 

 

When times changed, one had to adapt. It was a simple concept, yet in practice change was often overlooked. The Sith philosophy said to avoid the pitfall of believing that what worked yesterday would hold up today as well, for stagnation was death. So, when Darth Avacyn had come to the realization times had indeed changed for her, quite fundamentally so, the first order of business had become accomodating for this change. Not only had she been given the title of Triumvir of Strength, her personal life had also drastically changed with the arrival of her twin daughters. It meant more responsibilities, but not any more time to tend to them all. That brought her to Mygeeto, a planet she had not been to in some time, to bring change to the Valkyries so they could continue to thrive.

 

Vaylin, who had now claimed the title of Darth Moirai, had received the request to meet Avacyn in the Valkyrie fortress but was told little else than that there were important matters to be discussed. She would be expected in the Elder sanctum, a place within the fortress only Avacyn, as the lone elder, could freely enter. She was seated on the middle of three thrones, with a banner bearing the symbol of the Valkyries hanging from the wall behind each of them. In a time long past the two empty thrones belonged to Aria Vale and Darth Imperia, but now they remained vacant.

 

Here, the woman waited for Vaylin's arrival. Two guards who would stand at the gates when she was present were indeed stationed there, and would not stop the zabrak from entering.


Family News at the Family Dinner

Ishana Pavanos

 

 

There were Exciting times ahead for the Pavanos couple. Looking back years ago Kaalia wouldn't even entertain the thought, but only a very short time had passed since the Sith-imperial ball when after the second medical appointment she had broken the news to Ishana; they were expecting. It boggled her mind somewhat even now, the happy and fulfilling life she already had with her wife was going to be expanding. In secret the two had begun preparing for their arrival, away from the prying eyes of Ishana's family for now. Her own was a lot more easy-going in regards to what they were up to on a daily basis, but Aalicya and Daveeq were much less afraid to personally check in on how they were doing. They had been successful, though, and after dinner tonight there would be no more need to keep it hushed.

 

The fact that since the ball nobody else had been informed just yet did not mean there had been no developments regarding Kaalia's pregnancy. The first check-up appointment had revealed they weren't going to have one child, but twins. Ishana had indeed been too impatient after the first attempt and for a few days all the redhead could think of was how much more hectic everything was going to get to the point where stress was already starting to crop up, but after letting the news sink in she had no more issues with it. Both of them were their children in the end, so they were both welcome additions to their lives. Her wife's excitement at the prospect, even if she had been trying to hide it, helped with this a great deal.

 

"So, who of us is going to share the news?" Up until that moment Kaalia had had quite a lazy day, but now that she was about to leave the house she had to do better than an old comfy shirt, yoga pants and messy hair. The outfit was swapped out for something presentable and now she was busy combing her hair. Tonight was one of the weekly family dinner nights, a tradition her in-laws saw as nothing short of holy. Even Gideon and Syrin Voldaren were expected to be there every single time, although Kaalia's parents always enjoyed the good food and great company. "Oh, and did you get the stuff they asked for from the fridge?" she said while continuing to look at the mirror and tidying up her red locks. They weren't running late just yet, but there wasn't a lot of time left before they were expected to be there.


The Shaper and the Alchemist

Meeting with a fellow Sith

Kaalia's personal chambers, Bastion Sith Academy

Bastion

 

 

Although the last time Darth Avacyn had visisted the room she was in wasn't all too long ago, the time before that most definitely was. Dust had gathered everywhere while everything had remained untouched as the days went by, but after having been here in preparation to teach a class in lightsabers basics, an order had been sent out to have the place cleaned up. Now there was no dust to be found and the furniture was shining once more- a vast improvement.

 

The chambers had history. This was where the woman had truly proven she was worthy of the title of Sith Lady by ending the life of Darth Ferus, the zabrak who had introduced her to the way of the Sith and taught her everything about their code. It was the one death she was proud of having caused, the exception to her rule that if to kill was necessary, the ends justified the means. She had no qualms about going that far, but she found no enjoyment in it. It always left her indifferent, but on that fateful day this was not the case. Walking over to the exact spot where Krest let out his final breath, she knelt down to take in the moment once more.

 

A mahogany desk with fine details carved into it drew the attention of any who entered the chamber. A classic-looking yet quite comfortable seat was found behind it, and to the right of someone who sat in it the wall was decorated with bookcases filled with Sith literature. All these pieces had belonged to the room's previous owner, but now they belonged to Avacyn. The one addition she had made was the holographic star map on the left side of anyone who was seated in her chair. If one interacted with it to, for example, zoom in on a particular part of the galaxy, there was a chance they would encounter a marked planet, although the reason why was not made clear.

 

Still, there wasn't much time to linger. Avacyn had come here for a reason, a meeting with another Sith who carried the name Darth Maliphant. After hearing of his exploits as an alchemist, she was quite interested in meeting the man herself. Perhaps the foundations for an alliance that would benefit them both could be forged today. She got back up on her feet and returned to her seat, where a datapad waited in front of her. Now, she simply had to wait for her guest to arrive.
