Another fan fiction based off of a roleplay performance we did in January 2015. There is a long post production process that we have to get our ideas off the ground due to limited writers (an abilities).
This is a story about a painting of both cultural significance and a sordid past. Essentially, it’s an evil painting created by JAYNOR OF BITH for RUGESS NOME. There is an underlying meaning to this painting though it seems like nothing.
THRAWN has discovered this underlying meaning and wants the painting. But because it’s priceless, it will fetch large sums of money on the Black Market if it were stolen. Currently, the painting is up for auction on Lothal. So the Rebels, needing money decide to enlist the support of LANDO CALRISSIAN (tw) to steal the painting to sell on the Black Market. The Rebels that best knows about painting is SABINE WREN (fb)(tw)(g+)( sabinewren77).
This excerpt is the beginning of the performance. Tell us what you think? Honest opinion. What can we improve?
EXT: LANDO CALRISSIAN
AND SABINE WREN ENTER THE ART
AUCTION CATHEDRAL WITH A SEA OF POLITICIANS AND DIGNITARIES. SABINE WREN IN HER PLUM FORMAL DRESS.
I cleaned up for this? Oh…
Yes. Enjoy the art, my fair bird. U may never see some of these again. Take a
look at this one.
That’s no Jaynor painting. That’s holographic arts. I didn’t know this was a
Try not to make eye contact with the snooty people here, okay? Of course, not
just one piece is up for sale at an auction. How about this painting?
A reprint of “DANCING ON WATER” by the Mon Calamari Opera? A bit
grown up…What are the Imperials into these days?
Someone up there has a heart for history I suppose or trophies of destruction? I
can’t call it. I hear they recently scoured a dying planet for art and culture
before completely destroying it.
Imperials. You could say that again!
SABINE WREN balks and
then downs a glass of champagne.
You’re making me nervous. Let’s separate and as my body guard, you’re in charge
of those invites.
Alright, why don’t I blend in with the other Imperials to see if I can find
where they’re either hiding this Jaynor of Bith painting.
SABINE WREN nods as
she grabs another champagne flute and is tipsy and clumsy
IMPERIAL SHUTTLE LANDS, HEAVILY ARMED STORMTROOPERS SPEED OUT OF THE SHUTTLE.
ENTERS AUCTION WITH HIS CHISS CAPTAIN, THEIR RED EYES AND BLUE SKIN STANDS OUT
AS ALIENS. IDENTIFIES THE PAINTING AS SABINE
WREN EXAMINES IT.
The “VISAGE PRESAGE” a rather curious name. Say, is that girl familiar to you?
Vaguely familiar, but I can’t place her sir.
Lyste, check her invitation. But she does looks familiar
Excuse me miss. May I see your invitation?
Uh huh. My bodyguard has it. He’s that Stormtrooper over there…
Stay here, Miss, while I inquire of him. Excuse me TROOPER, I must view this
SABINE WREN stumbles to the painting ‘VISAGE PRESAGE’
painting when it dawns on her that this is JAYNOR OF BITH masterpiece
SABINE WREN backs up and bumps into THRAWN as her
It’s quite alright. Are you enjoying the auction?
Flimsies are shuffled around between LANDO CALRISSIAN as a STORMTROOPER
and YOGAR LYSTE and his men return to SABINE WREN and THRAWN
Oh yes, sir. It is right here. She is PRINCESS SELEN YASOR daughterof the
distinguished LORD EN SABA YASOR of HELSKA IV
You will have to come with me until I can verify this invitation
Who’s the blue face?
How rude TROOPER! ADMIRAL I am the PRINCESS YASOR SELEN and I would be having a
good time if your henchmen would UNHAND ME!
It’s alright, Lieutenant. I’ll be with her…
YOGAR LYSTE, AGENT KALLUS and LANDO CALRISSIAN disperse.
Sir, you’re a CHISS…err…Imperial Admiral and you like art…err…do you like art?
Of course I am. Who would dare impersonate an Imperial officer? And I do enjoy
art quite a bit. Though, very few truly understand art. For instance, what do
you think of this piece, the “VISAGE PRESAGE”?
This piece? Odd direction by JAYNOR…I mean the colors are odd for what he
usually does and the pattern and design and lighting are awkward for his usual
I believe JAYNOR created this piece in his younger days. Its patterns are odd,
but they do mean something. What do you think the piece means?
It means patterns to a place far off?
THRAWN takes a deep breath to explain
Tell us what you think
