The Earthy Jedi Knights
Right after Grand Master Jedi Knight Brandon Bowers was healed,
he took his family and the Queen of the Jedi Knights back home to Earth.
Since Brandon did not fear the praises of all on Earth, he believed his place was on Earth.
Now that both of the first Earthly Jedi Knights have families,
they have responsibilities to them and their duties of all the Jedi Knights.
There is nothing more important than love. These two first Jedi Knights have their royal duties for all the Jedi Knights on Earth and all through the universe,
but it is the love they both have for their families that will make all the difference.
No matter what one is responsible for, there is nothing more important than love for family.
Now that the Dark-side of the Force is no longer a problem,
all the Jedi Knights of today will take part in bringing the ancient past to the present of the Jedi Knights. The royal family will have their responsibilities with it, but they will be staying on Earth.
Chapter 1: Home
When they all arrived at the SGC in Dinotopia, Brandon was very happy to be back on Earth. He remembered his conversation on that cruise ship with that Major. She was right, he jumped off Earth without thinking twice about it, but Earth is where he belonged.
Brandon was happy that he was royalty. He can now stay on Earth. He liked it on other planets, but there is no place like home.
Marion said with a smile, "Welcome back. It is always great to have Earth's first two Jedi Knights here on Earth."
Sam replied with a smile of her own, "It is always great to be back. My Master and I have talked about staying here while the other Jedi go to all these locations that the Holocron has given us."
Mayor Waldo Seville stated, "I know how much you will miss these adventures. To tell you the truth, I do not blame you one bit. Just the same, I am very happy that you will stay."
Brandon stated, "There is a lot here to do on Earth for us. One is being with our families. I personally would not like for them to worry if I am constantly in harm's way all the time."
Amanda stated, "Daddy, you have done a lot for Earth in those regards. It is about time that they do their part."
Brandon looked at his daughter with a loving smile, "For a six year old you are very intelligent."
Amanda smiled back.
Nomi replied to her daughter, "After your deep concerns for the safety for Sam and the rest of us, I am very grateful that we can stay here on Earth with you. We love you Amanda."
Amanda replied, "It is the love that I have for all of you that got me to be so upset about you all being away."
Jolinar said through her father, "Amanda, you are like your father in every way. Your father has shown great love for all in the universe. That is why he did all those dangerous things like destroying that Death Star."
Amanda asked, "What now your Majesty?"
Jolinar answered, "Right now we will take it easy. Grand Master Luke Skywalker and his wife are doing most of the work regarding these Jedi cities that are scatter through time and space. The job of father, mother, and Sam, now Queen of the Jedi Knights will be needed, but they will be doing it here on Earth."
Amanda asked, "Can I still call you by your royal title?"
"I would love that very much. I am just as much a Queen of the Jedi Knights as Sam is now, but I am and have been responsible for the ancient history of the Jedi Knights."
Sam replied, "Unless you want me to deal with that aspect, then it will be yours to have. If it were not for you, I would not realize how important it is to be Queen of the Jedi Knights. I owe a great deal to you. I hope I can learn a lot from you still."
Brandon said, "My Padawan, there are many things that I have learned from you. The most important one is true friendship. The years I have trained you will always be with me."
"It will be the same for me too Master, thank you."
Oriana finally met up with them.
Amanda cheerfully greeted her Master.
Oriana smiled, "It is good to see you my Padawan."
Amanda looked at her parents. She quietly asked if she can spend time with her Master.
The smiles that her parents gave her were all she needed to hear.
After they took off, Marion smiled, "I see that Amanda has enjoyed being trained by your mother Your Majesty."
Sam smiled back, "I cannot see a better person to train her."
After a few moments of silence, Nomi asked her husband, "Ready to be treated as royalty?"
Brandon looked at her and gave a big smile, "Yes I am. To be perfectly honest with you, it would be wonderful to take it easy from that last battle I went through."
Marion said, "As long as you are in our care, that is how all of you three will be treated. Princess Amanda will be learning how to be royalty under Her Majesty, Oriana as well as becoming a great Jedi Knight. There is nothing any of us will do for you all."
Sam replied, "I better check on my boys, including Jack." Sam took off.
Nomi quietly looked at Marion. After Marion giving her a silent nod, Nomi took her husband to a location so that he could get the royal treatment she thought he rightfully deserved.
When they got there, Nomi told her husband what she had for him, "Baby, I want you to enjoy the best full body massage. You did not the last time."
Brandon smiled, "No I did not. For now on, I will do just that."
Nomi started to help him undress for it. "Everyone else is doing things for bringing the Jedi Knights' past to the present. You have nothing to be concerned about other than taking it easy as you have said."
Brandon lay on his back on the massage table. Nomi used the towel to cover his lover half. Before leaving the room so he could get his private full body massage, she gave him a kiss on the lips.
After a few steps outside, Nomi's comlink went off. Nomi knew who it was.
Nomi answered, "He showed no fears in having others pamper him."
Sam replied, "Great! All that he did for me and everyone in the universe, he at least deserves at least recognition of all that he did for us."
"I know. When he was sent back to us in that alternate time line, I was very concerned if he would allow others to do so again. I never felt him so tensed."
"With Jolinar in him, I am sure if any tension he may have left over, she will help him deal with it."
Nomi smiled, "Jolinar told me the other day she would make sure he rightfully enjoyed himself. Brandon did not like her telling me that, but he did admit that he understood."
"When he trained me, I had to help Jolinar to get Brandon not to feel so damn overly protective over me or anyone else."
Nomi sighed, "He is a dear loving soul, but I wished he would not burden himself so much over others, including Amanda and myself."
"I know what you mean Nomi. Just the same, I would not want him to love any less than he has already. It the reason Earth is free from Palpatine."
Nomi smiled, "You are right Your Highness. Give my love to Charlie, Richard, and Jack."
Nomi turned off her comlink. "I love you Brandon, and so does everyone else on this planet. Please allow them to show it."
Luke said, "Princess Amanda, with the help of Oriana, you will be in charge of organizing all the ins and outs of what will be going on with bringing the ancient Jedi Knights to Earth. Think you can handle it?"
Oriana stated, "Before you answer, I wanted you to realize how important this task will be for you."
Amanda smiled, "I do very much. I also realize that my daddy needs not to burden himself with this. He has done so much more for everyone far more than he will ever admit to himself."
Oriana smiled, "He is a loving soul. He loves you very much. He also has shown great love for everyone on Earth by all he has done. We ask you to take this responsibility mainly due to that you are being trained to be a Jedi that once was. In time there will be others, but you are the first."
Amanda said humbly, "I know that I will be turning seven soon, but I also know that I have to do this job. I see it can help me train to be the Jedi Knight that is meant for me to become, and I want to be that Jedi Knight."
Luke smiled, "You are a very wise young lady, and more mature for your age. Spite what you have said; you have the right to have a childhood. The Royal Status of a Jedi Knight is not the same as Earth's history. It does not mean that you will not have responsibilities under that title, but it does mean that you have the right to be who you really want to become."
Amanda said with conviction, "That is my point. I want to be this type of Jedi Knight. I will never stop being me to become I am this type of Jedi Knight already. Mommy and daddy have taught me to be this type of person. Like it is a sin to kill a mockingbird, it would be a sin for me not to fulfill what I am now."
Oriana smiled at her young Padawan, "I will make sure that you fulfill all your desires and the life that is meant for you to have. For the remainder of the day, I want you to be yourself. Why not go to that rock quarry we found. I will be with you shortly."
Amanda smiled at her Master and took off.
It did not take long for Amanda to reach her destination. Amanda started out loving to collect rocks and others geological items. At the age of 4, she had started to classify all the different types of rocks she had. Now she can simply know what type of rock she was looking at.
After a short time, Amanda found something very interesting. By any means it was not a rock that one would find on Earth. From the looks of it, Amanda believed it was a type of communication device. Without touching it, she examined it very closely. Amanda immediately contacted her Master. She gave full details of what she saw.
Oriana replied, "I will be right there. I think I know what you have Amanda, but I want to see it."
When she got there, Mara Jade Skywalker went with her. When both saw the item in question, they both said to Amanda, "This is for you to have."
Amanda asked, "What do I do with it?"
Mara asked, "If it is a communication device, touching it will be the only way to reveal the message."
Amanda opened herself with the Force, and did as she was asked.
A familiar image appeared. It was Sam Carter O'Neill.
Amanda replied with a big smile, "Your Majesty. It is so great to see you again."
Her Majesty replied, "It is always an honor to see you. Remember what I told you that you will be at my side. Here is your chance to do just that. If not already told, you will be responsible for personally dealing with all that comes to Earth. There will be many that will help you with the physical work, but what I want you to partake it my dearest Amanda is to categorize all that is brought to Earth. The most important thing an archaeologist can do is record everything."
"After telling me all that you did with your rock collection, I knew that you have a natural ability to categorize things. The work that you have done is usually done my experts over many years of dealing with geology. Do not be overwhelmed by this."
Amanda smiled, "I am not Your Majesty. I am very excited in what you have asked me to do."
Her Majesty smiled, "Happy to hear it. If you need anything from me, you can touch this device or talk to your father."
Amanda gave a happy dance, "I was hoping my daddy will have something to do. I know he needs to enjoy himself more, but I personally would not think he could sit and do nothing."
"No one in life should sit around and do nothing. We all have a purpose in life. Your father has done more than his share of his purpose, but there is a lot more for him to do. If it was not for your father, we would not have ever met face-to-face. Now it is time for the ancient Jedi Knights to come home. There will be a lot more than anyone could ever realize. Things will start to wake up all over Earth from the ancient Jedi Knights."
Amanda asked, "What should we be looking for Your Majesty?"
Her Majesty smiled, "There is nothing to be alarmed or concerned about. Everyone will know when things start to appear. Some of them you have already experienced when you were with me Princess."
Amanda smiled when Her Majesty called her that.
Her Majesty continued, "Since you are a Princess of the Jedi Knights, you are given the royal responsibilities to address these new arrivals either by living beings that will come to Earth from these locations throughout time and space, or from what will wake up here on Earth in the 21st Century. With your Master and other Jedi friends, you will never be alone in these duties."
Oriana walked close to Amanda, so she will be noticed my Her Majesty.
Her Majesty smiled. "It is great to see you again mom."
Oriana replied with a warm smile of her own, "It is always great to be with you my daughter no matter what time period you may be."
After a short moment, Amanda realized something about Oriana. "Master, you knew this would happen?"
Oriana smiled, "Yes I did. After seeing this device, I knew that all that my daughter just told you will start to happen."
Amanda asked, "Should our Sam be told of this."
Sam replied behind Amanda, "I am here Princess."
Amanda turned around. She not only saw Sam, but the rest of Sam's family.
Amanda asked, "If I am to do all that had been asked of me, what will you be doing?"
Sam answered, "Help you fulfill your duties. It will take the two of us to do them. I will also have my own duties that are for me only to fulfill. As these duties that are given to you, they are for you to rightfully administer."
Mara smiled at Amanda, "You see Princess, we all have our special things in life, but that does not mean we do it alone. Especially at your age, these duties will be a lot for you to deal with."
Her Majesty said, "Even with your age Princess, I am still giving you this task"
Amanda replied, "I understand Your Majesty. Even though I am young and will have my dearest friends at my side to help, I still want to do them. As I told my Master, I want to be this Jedi Knight that is for me to be."
Sam walked up close to Amanda. "Please do not grow up too fast. None of us will expect you to give up your childhood all the sudden."
Amanda smiled, "I do not want to give up my childhood, but at the same time I do not want to give up my life as the Princess of the Jedi Knights. If all that is required of me at the moment is to classify what is brought to Earth, greet others, and all that has been said to me here and now, then that is something I have been doing all along."
Oriana stated, "Exactly why you have been doing them. Before you can do any responsibilities in life, you first have to learn to be yourself. You are a natural in all that will be required, but you will have to learn a lot more to truly fulfill what has been asked of you."
Amanda asked her Master, "How does one learn to be anyone other than oneself?"
"My Padawan, learning to be who you are is to explore life all around you. That is what it means to live with others. Teamwork is a sum total of how much you have learned about life through others, and how you relate with others. To be yourself is to be a part of life as a complete whole. You have done a lot that most have done at your age, but there is much more for you to learn to rightfully say you found your calling in life. Always remember the six law of Dinotopia, Observe, listen, and learn."
Amanda thought about what she said. "Master are you saying that there is more for me to learn than being trained to be a Jedi Knight?"
Her Majesty answered, "Amanda my dear, there is always more to learn. No one, not even a Master Jedi stops learning. I think it is one of the main reasons your father is so concerned about others. He knows that his responsibilities over them will never end. He is so dedicated to fulfilling his duties as both Grand Master Jedi of Earth and Grand Duke Jedi of all the Jedi Knights that he thinks that he has to constantly watch over all."
Amanda replied with dear concern, "I feel it many times in him through the Force that he thinks he has to be alone in these responsibilities."
Sam smiled at Amanda, "He has been that way before he had these royal titles over him. He loves life. His heart is bigger than himself. No matter how many are helping him, his love and dedication will grow."
Amanda smiled, "That is why I love my daddy so much. The only thing I can do for all he has done is to love him back."
Sam replied with a big smile, "Keep doing that Amanda. Keep doing that."
Brandon woke up finally from his massage.
When he opened his eyes he saw his wife lying naked on her stomach beside him.
Nomi smiled, "Hi love"
Brandon smiled, "Hi there. That was one great massage I had."
Nomi replied, "I saw you sleeping and thought of undressing and laying beside you."
Brandon smiled, "I like your thinking."
Nomi than came closer to him, and put her arms around him. They started to kiss, which lead to a night of romantic interludes.
After their little love making, Nomi asked while having her arms around her husband, "How are you enjoying the royal life?"
Brandon answered, "I love it as long I have you close to me."
Nomi and Brandon just looked into each other's eyes. Nomi asked, "Have I told you that I love you?"
"I think you mentioned it a few times."
Nomi suggested, "Why not we get dressed and walk down that nature trail that Rosemary told us about."
Brandon smiled, "I would love to do that with you."
The two of them got up, and got dressed.
Their saurian partner was outside waiting for them.
Nomi smiled at the Lambeosaurus, "Hi Regius. How are you today?"
Regius just bellowed in delight.
A Lambeosaurus can be up to 50 feet. Regius was just less than 35 feet long.
Regius followed them as they walked romantically down the trail.
They ended up sitting and cuddling each other as they looked at the falls. The falls were very romantic when the sunstones shined on it during the evenings.
Nomi and Brandon just spent most of the night sitting there. They talked romantically to each other, and just cuddled up close.
