Fabulous ideas, as one always wondered why go to the time and expense to train these young people and then just ship them out to the middle of no-where doing usless labor. Great work using the force to help the young ones understand the growth of plants and the youngsters also. Andrea

Great insight into a rarely-touched subject. I liked X!tal, the obvious compassion and the strain of facing someone who is like he used to be.

I liked your story. i'd always wondered what hapened to the people sent to the Agri- corps. I liked the way you made it sound positive.

great introspection and i love the feeling of coming full-circle. also the way you handled the parts of description that could have been awkward (the lothorn and the tongue-click in X!tal) were just right. i was able to care for the characters ina very short time

Great job, Jane! I liked how you explained the purpose behind the Agri-Corps, and you portrayed the characters very well. I especially liked X!tal, in particular, for he was so compassionate and understanding. A wonderful piece. :)

Wonderful idea! It reconciles the idea that those chosen by the Force are special, no matter what their destiny and fate is. Not everybody becomes a Jedi Knight, but those who are not Jedi also have a noble role to play in the galaxy.

Awesome story, with all of the movies and books, with the exception of a few, no one really thinks about this subject. Many people dont even know about the fact that not all younglings or apprentices become Jedi. Excellent writing and depictions.

An excellent story addressing a subject that is often ignored or forgotten. The characters were beautifully drawn and the philosophical aspects interesting and convincing. I loved the way how you conveyed both X!tal's understanding and Tamini's grief and frustration, and how you managed to show the concepts of the story coming full circle without hammering the point across. A very well-written and remarkable story.

I really liked this stroy. It was very good. I was glad to see that someone put a positive spin on the Agri-corps. It amazes me to think that Obi-wan almost went there. Keep writing such great stories!

First story I've read about this even though the databank speaks of what happens (I'm guessing it was in a novel somewhere?). Anyway, nice touch - got me thinking about the purges though. Wonder if anyone's ever written about how the Empire went after all the Force sensitive farmers who weren't chosen for Jedi training. Sequel to your story perhaps? :)

Cool! I feel for that young padawan. way to ditch kids on farms, jedi order! There are child labor laws you know!
Great job writin' it, but for next time, please make your names less hard to pronouce.

"The arms and legs of the Jedi body are important, but it's the stomach that gives them the strength."
*sigh* That's so beautiful!
I've always wished there was more written on the Agri-Corps, so I'm so glad I found this story. I'm amazed at how much you managed to strip away and unnecessary exposition about who and what the Agri-Corps is and just embed that within the story. And the framing of the dying Otom Pan before the young new recruit arrives is perfect. What a wonderful exploration of all the conflicting emotions that would go into ending up in the Agri-Corps.
And finally, awesome choice of name with X!tal. It's great to see some experimenting and less-traditional names out there periodically.

I've been with vodafone for 3 years. They have clttissennoy provided poor coverage in the UK, London, Buckinghamshire, Devon and Yorkshire. I have tried with 2 different handsets in these locations. Often calls are dropped, I need to manually switch from 3G back to GSM mode in Android Mobile Networks settings just to get a data connection.I asked for the migration code now, I will switch to Three as Vodafone technical support have been unable to address their reception issues in the UK.Posted 29/04/2013 at
