He heard the order whispered hollowly on his comm unit, knew and trusted the voice that spoke it. The order was a crushing treachery, but it could spark no more hatred from his already bitter heart. His hand moved to the comm without his awareness and he thought he could hear himself screaming, raw disbelief.
"But we're still down here! We're still down here!"
The order was given again, despite his appeals.
"Activate the Mass Shadow Generator."
Those engaged in life-and-death battles around him stopped as his voice discharged over the landscape like the sudden blast of a gun that had been held to your forehead, the voice of one man pushed with injustice after injustice. Their eyes were bloodshot, dirty with guilt and the lives of the thousands they had murdered, wild with the frenzy of adrenaline and the power of unleashing death's hand to any who drew too near. They could not understand why this man would bother shouting when he could be killing. But they came to understand wh

Ahsoka found an old rusty bench on the side of the road she was on. It creaked as she sat down, but i didnt matter, her feet were too tired to care. she glanced up and watch as person after person passed by.
It took a moment, but she realized that this was the same bench she sat on years ago. It was almost poetic that she would return to this place. It was a day she could never forget, her fight with that assassin, when she met Kevin.
She reached deep into her pocket and pulled out an object in her hand. She opened up her hand and stared down at the ring Kevin gave to her, just hours before his death. She brushed off the dust off the shinning blue stone before gripping her hand back into a fist and slumped her head down.
"In breaking news,"
Ahsoka lifted her head and saw the screen across the street from her. It was the holo net news, with its normal anchorman sitting behind a clear desk covered with

Death. The agony of eternity compressing your mind. Or what's left of it. After ages of pondering what remains of the things you set in motion, what you cared enough to die for, details start to deteriorate. Everything fades except the actions that haunt choices of a life long past. At one time I was powerful, feared, admired for what I wasnot who. Now I can hardly remember my name. I remember the Sith though. I remember how they brought me here and refuse to let me go. I remember how I forsook the ways of the Jedi, turned on my master, and crept into the corrupt darkness that fed my guilty pleasures. Now there are no such feelings. Nowait. There is some feeli

Jango Fett walked through the white clean halls of the clone factory of Kamino. He was wearing a turquoise top and his navy coloured sweat pants. He was carrying a hand held hologram projector. A holographic man with an elderly face was speaking.
Dooku: I'm pleased to see your progress Jango. Your troopers are impressive.
Jango: They'll do their job well, Tyranus.
Dooku: I hope your satisfied with you pay. I understand that you have requested a clone for yourself....unaltered too.

My life ain't an easy one.
It takes a tough kinda person,
To be the man I am.
Life's not been too kind to me either,
With Dad dying to Jedi scum...
The countless bounties,
The actions and consequences.
Anyone could hire me
Anyone could kill me
Anyone could be the one who shoots me.
No one ever cares about Boba Fett.
No one sees beyond the mask.
I'm just another Darth Vader out there,
Fulfilling my role in the universe,
Being the predator to a thousand thugs.
I've never cared for anyone anyway.

The 501st Legion got the best and worst of the war. Assigned to various Jedi depending on the battle, not like other squadrons that had their own Jedi General. Out of all the Jedi Yin served, Anakin Skywalker caught his interest the most. He was unpredictable, arrogant and powerful.
Yin's armour was now blue, he was representing his legion. He had seen sites so traumatising that he began to understand why clones were expendable, even if they survived this war, they would never be OK again.
Yin was war hardened, no longer a 'shiny' clone trooper.
It had been over a year since the war began.
Yang: We will be passing through soon. I won't be able to speak long but I haven't seen you since we left Kamino.
Yin: I know brother. How was your last objective?

This lesson is going to focus on adjectives and adverbs, because I've only been tossing in descriptive words occasionally throughout these lessons. (And it was harder to create that I realized it would be. Forget learning new languages, I may have to go back to school to relearn my English!)
Like the lesson on verbs, the lesson will be in regular text, round brackets will surround notes from me, and square brackets will be around direct "lesson quotes" from Karen Traviss' Grammar Guide. (Which can be found on her webpage, and I highly recommend downloading it for personal use.)
(Working from a list of common English adjectives and adverbs, I have compiled these lists I will have obviously missed words in the dictionary, please just bear with me.)
[Adjectives and adverbs are formed by the addition of the suffix -la or -yc, depending on which makes pronunciation easier. There is only one form of the adjecti

In the final day of despair.
Lost hope and harsh deaths
The pain of many younglings
The torn heart of a mother
Unable to hear her crying mewling babies.
Unable to save them.
From that monster.
That monster whose name is Darth Vader.
Thou art not human.
Not man of flesh or born of woman,
A mixture of mechanics,
Technology and dark magic,
Born from the ashes
Of a once great chosen one.
His mind is ticking,
Whirling like C3PO,
But in a place where gold has no path to tread.
She knew! She knew!
The good deep inside.
She would surrender to him.
Her life was over!
The heartless monster left in his place,
How was a broken snow white queen able to fight him?
So she waits on the other side,
Knowing Vader will breathe on.
But when Luke is ready...
Anakin will pull through.

I want to center this post around verbs (conjugating and tenses and the like) because I haven't focused on them the way I should have with the other lessons. Since I was learning myself, it was a lot easier to start with nouns, and learn to rattle those off first, instead of slowly building sentences and workable conversation.
The lesson will be in regular text, I will put round brackets around notes from me, and square brackets around direct "lesson quotes" from Karen Traviss' Grammar Guide. (Which of course, can be found on her webpage, and I highly recommend reading it.)
Similar to most European languages, Mando'a verbs end in either ar, er, ir, or, or ur. Removing the r from the verb produces the stem.
(This is something I think I was forgetting when I tried to conjugate my verbs in previous lessons. Oh, how fun it is to teach oneself. KT could probably make a fortune offering a cla

Born A Traitor
From birth he has been a traitor, having betrayed nature itself, and now he was about to betray the only family he had left. After this he would have no one. His only allies would be the dark shadow he called a Master and the dark side itself.
The engines of his gunship were humming peacefully. The calm before the storm, as it was called. There were at least twenty Clone Troopers in the ship with him. They were relatively quiet, checking their gear and rechecking it. Or were they? They could be conspiring against him at this very moment, plotting to kill him the moment he turned his back on them.
All beings were capable of betrayal in his dark eyes.
"Commander?" He called silently. "A word with you, if you please."
The blue-armored clone made his way through the crowd of soldiers and crouched in front of his superior, who had sat down in a corner, pitch-black robe covering him almost entirely. The Commander seemed alert, left hand on his holstere

The planet Reyl was an unforgiving place, where it's animals had adapted to become some of the toughest force-forsaken creatures on this side of the galaxy; and the 501st was lucky enough to be sent there to drive out the Separatists terrorizing its denizens.
It was mid summer; the sky a sun kissed blue that touched the ground with a velvet caress. The land a cracked, dry, desolate waste that stretched for miles with spots of blue and green which marked the only sources of water for miles. Surrounding them, scorched giant trees jutted out from the baked earth, showing a time past when the planet was rich with life.
Five gunships swooped in high above the dried up canyons and valleys that scratched themselves across the entire planet. The droid army had spread itself in heaps and mounds of ordered groups surrounding the capital city of Shyre; reportedly the last city to survive the initial invasion. The city itself lay encased in a large insulated and shield like dome, which protected i

But not with me at his side.

But I'm not.

One day they will be mine.
I hide my head.

So powerful with the force.

Was saved by a friend,
Now I'm together,
The master and the apprentice oblivious,
I watch them with revenge pounding in my ears.

Leonardo snuggled up against the warm body that cushioned his own, the bath water around the sloshing around as he did so. He was currently sitting in the bath tub with Ezio lying underneath him, the combination of both the heat of the water and the warmth of his friend was slowly lulling him into a comforting medium between awareness and sleep. Inhaling the comforting scent of vanilla and Ezio, his somewhat foggy mind thought back to how wonderful his day had turned out. It had originally started out with Salai getting into more gambling debt, Rosaria running off with Innocenzio for the day, and a note from the assassin saying that he wouldn't be able to see the artist until late in the evening. Leonardo had been disappointed with the entire day; it was his birthday and on one seemed to remember but him!

Patrol. Jix hated it. But Rex had sent him and Sergeant Coric because there was no one else to spare.
"Check for stragglers. We need to be sure all civilians have left the area. Things are going to get nasty soon." Rex had told them.
The first three houses were clearly empty; they didn't even bother getting off their speeder bikes. The road they were traveling on was just a mere path with two ruts separated by a grassy hump in the center. Trees overhung it on both sides, some lower branches managing to slap out at the clone trooper pair as they road along.
"Uhg.. no one is out here.. let's just get back sarge." Jix grumbled, slapping away a branch as they flew by.
"I think the last house is just around this curve," Coric's voice crackled over the comm. "The road ends at this little--"
"Look out!" Jix shouted.
They came out of the blind curve and two kids, a boy and a girl, were standing in the knee deep grass in the road. They made no effort to get out of the way of the oncoming
