The trek through the great woshyr trees of Kashyyyk was like an afternoon stroll for the Wookiees, but for humans, it proved to be treacherous. More than once, Chewbacca found himself stuffing the young man known as Hunt into a sack and safely taking him across the great abyss on his back. It was a crude method of transportation but it was the only way to ensure that Hunt made it through safely.

Finally, the entourage came to the end of their journey and came to a halt before a towering hut built into the thick bark of the trees themselves. It was a structure of beauty and one that every Wookiee on the planet came to know as the Great Ceremonial House - the dwelling place of the Elders.

It had been months since an average Wookiee warrior such as Chewbacca had entered the House but it was time for change. Afterall, the last time negotiations had taken place, the planet had been under the rule of the DRWP. Many of the Wookiee's despised the decision made by the Elders, but now it was time to get even. Today, with the help of Hunt, Chewbacca would try his hand at persuaing the Elders to take the Galactic Alliance's side.

With Hunt in tow, Chewbacca crossed the threshold of the great hut and entered the grand hall of the Elders. Squatting down on one knee, he bent his head and bowed.

A hiss escaped the lips of the old leader. His matted fur was gray streaked with white. His years were visible in his brown-eyed gaze as he studied the young Wookiee and the human. ["Rise, young Chewbacca. The Council is quite surprised by your presence. Explain yourself!"]

Eyeing the dias in which the head Elder sat, Chewie rose up to his full height. ["Your Excellency, first allow me to introduce David of clan Hunt of the Galactic Alliance,"] he paused as he gestured to the young human. ["This man had been on the run for months, trying to find a home - a place where he could fit in and live his life to the fullest. He did not find that place with the Empire, nor with the war ravaged DRWP in which you were sworn to live under for months. No, Your Excellency, he found it with the Galactic Alliance to Restore the Republic."]

The old Wookiee narrowed his eyes, scratching the tuff of hair growing out from his chin. "[You have connections with this Galactic Alliance, do you not Chewbacca? I seem to recall your life brother holding a high position in their ranks."]

["That is correct, Your Excellency."]

["And what is it your Galactic Alliance wishes to gain from us?"]

Chewbacca's lips parted slightly to reveal a hint of a smile. ["Absolutely nothing, Your Excellency. We want to help you. We want to restore our villages and forests to what they were before the DRWP presence. We want to restore happiness to our people. We want you to rule freely again."]

The Elder sank back within his chair and steepled his fur-covered hands. Obviously this would take some time to consider but Chewbacca had done his best. It was now in the hands of the Higher Council and the Elders to decide Kashyyyk's fate.

The torches that encircled the Great Ceremonial hut began to cast eerie shadows on the wood grain as twilight began to set over Kashyyyk's jungles. Chewbacca, the human David Hunt and the rest of the Wookiee entourage have been left waiting in the room of the Elders for 12 hours and still not one stepped forth to present their decision. Chewie was beginning to give up all hope and moaned softly to himself.

As if his audible grunt had been a wake-up alarm, the old Elder lifted his head and focused his chocolate colored eyes on the young Wookiee. Chewbacca flinched backward, afraid that he had interrupted some sacred ritual but much to his surprise, the Elder just mearly smiled.

["The Council of the Elders have finally reached a decision regarding the clan's membership into the Galactic Alliance to Restore the Republic."]

Chewie's blue eyes shifted upward as if to say a silent prayer to the gods as the Elders all rose. The head Elder spread his hands in a welcoming gesture. ["From this moment onward, the world of Kashyyyk and its inhabitants are indebted to your Galactic Alliance. Let us rejoice in our new found fellowship!"]

Chewbacca's heart litfed and a joyful roar escaped his lungs. Finally, the Wookiees were home with the Alliance where they belonged.

Hunt rubbed his hands as the decision was announced. Not only did it mean that Kashyyyk was now in the Alliance, it also meant he could get out of the chamber he'd been stuck in for hours. A lot to be happy about indeed.

"Hey, does this mean there's gonna be a party?" Hunt said, standing up and stretching his legs.

The Wookiee entourage spilled out onto the wooden walkway connected to the Great hut, cheering into the night. Their howls echoed across the vast woshyr forest beyond as the party begun.

Chewbacca found himself at the head of the pack alongside Hunt. Taking the human by the shoulder, he escorted him off to the so the rowdy procession could pass.

Hunt spoke up as tribal drums sounded in the distance. "Hey, does this mean there's gonna be a party?"

A toothy grin spread over his feral features. ["A great party. One that will probably last until the first rays of dawn,"] Chewie's expression suddenly hardened as his gaze went distant. ["But then I must leave. As should you. An Alliance transport should be coming by to take you safely back to headquarters. As for myself, I have personal matters to attend to."]

The Wookiee's voice trailed off as his eyes caught sight of two points of light moving across the sky. Running lights that belonged to a famililar freighter.

As always, the Wookiees welcomed Han with open arms. A small contingent of Wookiee loyalists were waiting for him as he descended the ramp of the Falcon. Han had to admit, he was as popular with the Wookiees as he was on some of the more human-centered worlds. But unlike those other worlds, Kashyyyk felt like home. They treated him as an equal and accepted him as if he was a brother. In short, he enjoyed coming here.

Too bad he wouldn't be staying long....

The goal was to get in, grab Chewie and get out. He had even left the twins safely onboard with the nanny droid to ensure that he make a quick getaway. But from the look of things, that wasn't about to happen. Flutes and drums were echoing in the distance as some sort of celebration had just gotten underway. Various Wookiees were dancing on the walkways and in general, having a good time. Han grumbled as he pushed his way through the chaos. He always chose the wrong times to drop in on a party....

A hairy paw suddenly clamped down on his shoulder and before he knew it, he was struggling to keep his feet on the ground as a Wookiee swept him up in a hug. "Ugh," he wheezed. "Glad to--see you too."

Chewbacca woofed in amusement and finally put his friend back down on his feet. They stood there for a few minutes, eyeing each other until Han saw that mischievous look cross over Chewie's features. He knew what was coming. "Don't you say one word about my hair," he warned, wagging his index finger in the Wookiee's face.

A low rumble rattled the tall being's chest as he began to laugh good naturely. Han just stood there, glaring vibro-daggers at his companion with arms crossed over his chest. "Alright, you oaf," he said with a hint of humor in his voice. "Let's get outta here before I end up shaving you too."

After some disagreement about not staying for the party, the duo began to head back to the landing platform where the Millennium Falcon was berthed. On their way out, Han stopped as he noticed David Hunt standing there for the first time. He gave the man a small smile. "Dave," he said coolly. "Nice of you to join us. I intercepted some fleet transmissions on the way in. Sounds like they have a transport out lookin' for ya. I'd keep my eyes on the skies if I were you." He gave the man a quick salute before disappearing down the walkway, Chewbacca close on his heels.

10PM is just a guess. I noticed nothing later than 6:30pm EST posted. So, my guess is that everything after 6:30pm was wiped. The only thing I can tell you is to repost it. I see katie's post was lost in the mess as well.

Hunt gazed around in awe as he exited the council chamber into the street. Definately a party, and he wasn't surprised when Chewbacca told him it would go on for that long. He followed Chewie, not really paying attention to where they were going. He was too busy watching the Wookies frolicking and dancing around on the ground and up amongst the trees. The whole thing was amazing.

It wasn't until the two arrives at the landing pad that Hunt realised what the ship in front was. The Millenium Falcon. Hunt approached the hull and Chewbacca and Solo exchanged greetings, touching the ship. It was a rather awkward moment as Han and David spoke. "Dave, nice of you to join us. I intercepted some fleet transmissions on the way in. Sounds like they have a transport out lookin' for ya. I'd keep my eyes on the skies if I were you."

The duo began up the ramp, and Hunt called after them. "Willdo, see ya around. Nice working with you Chewie!"

He moved away as they disappeared and waved at them in the cockpit as they took off. As he walked away back into the forest the commlink in David's pocket began to chirp. The transport. "This is David Hunt," he spoke into it. "Ready for pickup."
