only the chill howl of the wind
against cold flesh, raw heart, dark soul.
He stumbles, blind, tears freezing
as soon as fallen, sobs torn from
his aching, hollow breast.
Roots reach out to seize him
and he crashes to the earth,
a latter-day Lucifer.
Nothing is clear, save his guilt,
the overwhelming guilt in his heart.
He knows he deserves this exile.
He lies, broken, spent,
staring at bloodstained palms
unable to tell in his madness
that the blood is his own.
The wind cuts and burns,
freezes and torments
until it fills the world.
He hears it screaming:

It is a dark time for the Empire.
Following the death of EMPEROR PALPATINE
and its defeat at the BATTLE OF ENDOR, the Empire has begun
to crumble and fight amongst itself. The remaining faction, known as the IMPERIAL REMNANT, has fled to the Outer Rim to regroup and regain the power to crush the NEW REPUBLIC once and for all. A valuable store of cortosis has been found on the oceanic world of BAL'DEMNIC, and a promising young officer, ERRIL KAVEN, has been sent to oversee the mining operation, unaware that the Remnant's presence there has been discovered...
Bal'demnic. An oceanic planet in the Bak'rofsen system of the Auril sector. Outer Rim.
The commander stepped into the elevator and the doors hissed closed behind him. The car began to move upward.
So far the mining operation had been running smoothly despite the locals and the nuisance presented by the mine crabs. The crabs were hardly more than pests to the personnel assigned to the operati
Journal of Tanake Trang 001.This journal will be a record of everything that is important. I have never kept one before but our lives are so different now, I think it is time to start. It will be interesting to look back and read about the things that have happened to me and Sedaris. I might not write everyday, but I will definitely write if I have something to say. If I cannot, I will rely on the computer to relay the events as chronicled. Mother once told me it would be a good experience for me to record my thoughts and when I grew older, to see what I thought back then. I have never wanted to talk to someone more than now.Journal of Tanake Trang 001.9 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

Kahan picked his head up and looked around the bridge of the assault ship with a frown.
“Is everyone alright?”
“We're fine General.”
Kahan looked to the clone officer. “Are there any casualties?”

Kahan's comlink chimed. “This is Master Kahan.”

“So it would seem, I am awaiting further assessment from the crew on the ship's status.”

and watch the crimson sunset into dusk.
I walk beneath the stars, bow to the moon,
unafraid of the darkened, sleeping streets.
My ears grow sharper as my dark eyes dim,
my world is made of shades and secret sounds:
soft whispers from a bedroom; a prowling
felines cry; watching eyes circling above
sirens howling across the miles - not all
nightwalkers are so quiet as I - yet
the gliding hunter is my friend, not theirs.
I smile to hear its hidden metal voice.
Then, as the birds call in the smooth grey light
before dawn, I sleep, and dream of twilight.

Here we see the Common Troll,
homo interwebuli stupidus,
in its natural habitat.
A relatively newly devolved genus,
believed to have once been human,
the Common Troll can be identified
by its lack of intellect,
astounding arrogance and total
inability to identify or tell the truth.
Inexplicably, the Common Troll
population is growing rapidly.
Zoologists are baffled, and fear
that the Common Troll population
may soon outnumber that of the
more intelligent human being.

The ground is sharp glass, cruel and unforgiving.
She feels that the very earth opposes her step.
She struggles to her feet; gasping for a breath of

Shes chasing a dream but finding reality.
Imperial EntanglementsInside the Imperial stockade on Boshliss were a number of political prisoners of the Empire, from outspoken adversaries of Palpatine, to protestors and demonstrators, to those who simply looked at the wrong pamphlets. Outside of it were two rebels, the Togruta pilot Ranshisi Vec and her partner Nod Rovassta.Imperial Entanglements6 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Vec, otherwise known as Dodger Four, was a typical Togruta woman, tall and dangerous in appearance with detailed stripes on her tall, thick montrals. Her rich red skin was broken up by patterns of white all over. The bright orange flight suit seemed to be about the least stealthy thing to sneak around in, but it was clearly something that she preferred.
Captain Rovassta, owner of the YT-700 transport Imeille, was a rather scoundrelly Twi'lek. The wily grin on his orange face made him seem childishly mischievous as he leaned around a corner and looked into the base. His lekku twitched and he chuckled before turning back to Ranshisi.

The CIRCLE!! its basic layout is composed of a circle inscribed with a hexagon (which represents balance, perfection and unity) which inturn is inscribed with the triangle representing FIRE. There are nine other alchemic symbols. I would have put the actuall symbol on the picture... but it would have been rather difficult to explain exactly which element goes with whitch symbol!
The # on the Circle above corresponds with the # below:

Reaching out for something, someone.
There has to be a way to stop this.
Willing to stand in front of the tanks
as they come for you.
You do not deserve this,
this fall into hell, alone,
frozen to the core.
Let others warm you.
We would give you a parachute,
but you must open it.
Allow others to help you
I want you to live,
I want you to love,
I want to go back to
the way it was.
And as I pray for you,
old music rises in my soul.
Blood drops patter on red earth.
You slip away.
All that remains are tears,
and a plane soaring into sunset.
This death is not your fate.
It cannot be. This Isnt Africa.

The sun was bright and had a large center filled with yellow and little streaks of red and orange. The planet of Nar Shaddaa, a smuggler’s hideout or place for refuge, was bustling with people of all different species from all across the galaxy. The many bars on the planet’s surface were packed full of Smugglers and Bounty Hunters.
“You seem a little bit worried, Stanton.” A voice from over his shoulder came quickly from nowhere.
“Why do you say that?” Stanton was a smuggler, a rather great one. He had worked for the Sith for over 5 standard years, enough to make a regular man insane, but that was not the man Stanton was. Stanton was a hard-headed man; he rarely became frustrated or nervous. He was always a well-thought man, someone who always thought

It was a dark and stormy night! No, wait, it wasn't stormy yet. That happened later. Well, let's just say it was a dark night and leave it there.
Two whole days had passed since we had left the Cottage. We'd seen some interesting things already, like a forest of sticks and a peaceful meadow filled with animals. We'd followed the light of the Really Big Lamp and Radio's navigation skills (if they really were real) to this place; a creepy forest of darkness.
Being a lamp, I hate the dark. That's why I was so glad my light was there to shine in the forest, showing everyone where to go. Of course, I was a little bit angry when Kirby told me to turn it off, but he had a good reason. The battery was dying, and without it there would be no way we could keep going. Sure, we can move on our own power for a little while, but we need some power source to keep us going forever.
So, there we were, in the dark and spooky forest, no light, running low on power, no light, in need of shelter, and no li

In the morning she wakes up to the scent of frying meat and cheese potatoes. Her face and abdomen ached, and she decided to get ready before she went down to eat. She wanders around until she finds a bathroom, a few doors down.
'Argh. Why does my stomach hurt so bad? Was it the pasta? Nah, I practically ravish their food supply whenever I come over. What's wrong? Ugh, I hope I'm sick today.' _______ wonders to herself.
She sits down and she almost screamed.
'What the hell, did I shit myself?!' She mentally screamed waddling around the bathroom with her underwear pooling at her knees. 'What is that?!'
'My god...' Reality hits her.
'I just started my very first strawberry week...in a house full of men. On a school day. And I'm not sick, or good at acting. Joy...' She takes a breath and starts unwrapping the bandages before washing her face.
