Sheev Palpatine vs Lumiya - Final Fight (WITH POLL)

"Come on, Sheev, try to finish the job. Cosinga would have wanted that, yes?" Lumiya reached up to her face and tore away the veil that covered everything but her eyes. Then she reached behind her back and slowly drew out her lightwhip. "And this isn't to make you feel shame for the extent of my injuries. I just want you to see who you're fighting."

"I'm seeing." Sheev drew his lightsaber and temporary comfort flooded him. "And this ends here."

He knew the lightwhip by now. He'd relied on the shoto as an extra weapon in the past to counter the whip's twin elements of matter and energy, but he was flooded with a new confidence that he could take her with just the lightsaber that had always stood between him and darkness. Holding it two-handed over his head, he rotated it slowly, stalking around her.

Lumiya raised her arm to flick the whip and get the momentum for the forward stroke. And then she cracked it, sending forks of dark energy crackling into the ground at his feet, making him jump back before he sprang forward again and brought the lightsaber around in a right-to-left arc that she parried with the whip's handle. He leapt out of range of the whirling tails again and again, then she paused and he edged closer again.

"You hate me that much?" he asked.

"I don't hate you at all."

"You killed him. You killed Cosinga. He was mine to kill."

"Nothing personal." She looked as if she was smiling, but the movement was around her eyes rather than her cybernetic mouth. "Just doing what I swore an oath to Plagueis to do. To serve the dark side. Oaths matter, Sheev. They're all you're left with in the end."

She drew back her arm and brought the lightwhip crackling through the air, missing Sheev by centimeters. He lunged at her again and again, driven back each time. She'd slow sooner or later.

But so would he.

Then, as she began to raise her arm again, he ran at her, so close in that she couldn't get the whip traveling at its maximum lethal speed. He forced her back, step by step, as she tried to maintain the distance she needed.

One—two—three—four; she blocked him, handle held this way, then that, using the whip like a short lightsaber to deflect him, but Sheev didn't pause or shift direction to wrong-foot her. He drove her like a battering ram toward the edge of the mesa, pushing her within meters, then a step, of the edge.

Lumiya held the whip handle in both hands like a staff and blocked his downward sweep. For a moment they were locked in a stalemate, pushing against each other and grunting with the effort, with only the sounds of exertion because they had nothing left to say to each other.

Her rear foot began to slide backward as she struggled for purchase. The edge of the mesa was cracked and fissured. The smooth glittering stone began to crumble.

Sheev reached out and caught her hand as she fell, whip tumbling and bouncing down the steep rock face into oblivion. He leaned back, all his weight on his heels, knuckles clenched white with the strain of holding her weight, and for a second he wanted to see her face dwindling as she fell to her death, mouth open in a scream, but that wasn't the way to end this.

"I'd never let you fall," Sheev said, and pulled her back to safety. As she straightened up, he looked her in the eyes—calm, eerily calm—and swung his lightsaber in a single decapitating arc.

Man, Palpatine really degraded after not using a lightsaber for 30-some years.

Sheev also got killed by getting shot in the chest (by Han Solo).

Thoughts on this Sheev vs Lumiya fight?

Were you impressed by Sheev's performance?

Normally I'd just chalk it up to jobbing but this puts the nail in the coffin:


Valkorion paused, for he saw something else, as well; something he hadn't seen before in the Emperor. Fear.
Valkorion saw fear in Palpatine —fear of Valkorion. Fear of Valkorion power, fear that this power could be turned on him—on the Emperor—in the same way Revan had turned it on Vader. Valkorion saw this fear in the Emperor—and he knew, now, the odds had shifted slightly. He had glimpsed Palpatine's nakedest self.

It's just the Luke vs Lumiya fight with a few name changes. I guess it's just a way of demonstrating how embarassing Luke's performance was by changing Luke to a character most wouldn't even comprehend struggling against Lumiya.

Star Wars isn't an anime. No, Sidious can't beat infinite Vaders.

I'd return the "lol" but this seems to be your life's work, so I'll respectfully refrain, my good man.

^ for those who don't get the reference I did the same thing with the RotJ novelization passage where Luke senses Palpatine is scared of his power.
