remember when damen was judging torveld and lazar real hard in the beginning of the series bc laurent was the object of their affections??? they could hardly look at anyone else and damen couldnt wrap his head around the idea?? “that a man of torvelds honorable reputation would choose laurent as the object of his affections was difficult to swallow, but perhaps torveld admired reptiles” jokes on u
Chirrut’s face is blank when he’s told the news. Baze can’t detect any hint of emotion on his usually mobile features. Irreversible. Permanent blindness within six months. No known cure. The healer trails awkwardly to a stop and hesitates, glancing at Baze for his cue.
Baze shifts his weight. “Chirrut?”
“All is as the Force wills it,” Chirrut says, and rises. “Thank you, Master T’ron.”
He turns and is gone before the healer can reply, robes swishing in finality.
Baze gives the healer an awkward nod and scrambles to catch up. “Chirrut, wait.”
Chirrut glances at him when Baze falls in step beside him. His eyes are cloudier these days, the cataracts advancing ever more rapidly, it seems, but Chirrut’s feet are still quick and unhesitating, his stride as confident as ever.
“We have lessons,” he says when Baze can’t think of anything to fill the silence.
“But—don’t you want to—” Baze hesitates. Grieve? Mourn your loss? You’re going blind, Chirrut!
Damn, I hate Aksis! With his stupid SIVA storm gun! Why do the Fallen even worship him? This "Machine God". Machines are not meant to be worshipped, they are meant to serve.
You know, you worship the Traveler and it's a giant space machine.
How dare you! The Traveler, our one and only saviour, is a being of Light! Not some stupid hunk of metal! He actually has thoughts and feelings unlike those dumb machines like Aksis and Rasputin.
