I enter the cockpit and take a seat next to Leia. She seems oblivious to my presence. Curse her pride. I open my mouth to talk, but no sounds come out. My mouth goes dry, and I feel myself go pale. Here she is, the bossiest, stubborn, high-maintenance girl I've ever met. Yet, I know that she's also the smartest, fearless and most beautiful. And I completely screwed up.
Tell her how you feel! A voice in my head screams. I stifle a snort. Yeah, and have her laugh in my face? No thanks.
Wait, but what about our encounter in the circuitry bay? I thought we patched things up. I mean, she kissed back.
"One kiss doesn't fix everything, Solo." She says dully, breaking the silence, as if reading my mind. She continues to stare blankly forward, he teeth tightly clenched, and eyes hollow. This Leia...it's not even Leia. It's the Rebel leader, the princess, filled with nothing but anger. I let my mind wander off f

Aira-ty walked down the sanitized corridor on the Kaminioan city, looking out at the wind driven rain as it buffeted Tipoca City. She hated this planet. It rained too much, like it was always crying. Still, as a place to raise her son Boba with Jango it wasn't too bad...and they never lacked for anything, save perhaps friends for Boba...not that Jango seemed to feel that Boba needed them. He was so intent on their son's training that Aira-ty sometimes felt that Jango forgot that Boba was her child too. Looking back from the endless rain she turned her attention back to the corridor as she came around a corner. She frowned and stopped, her sensitive ears picking up what sounded like the sniffles of a child.
Was that Boba? Her eyes narrowed as she followed the sound. If one of the Cuy'val Dar had hurt her son again she was going to thrash the responsible party within a millimeter of their life! She'd promised Jango she wouldn't kill any of his hundred man team while here, but that didn't

"Last time you tried that, it all came back up after two minutes of finishing." said Shiny with a smirk on his face.
"Hey," said Jaster as he looked over his shoulder and smiled at Shiny. "Can't blame me for trying. And one day, I'll be able keep it all down!"
"Ha! you got some weird goal brother!" said Chatter as he and his brothers laughed.
Jaster shrugged "What can I say, I'm a simple guy, with dreams."
The guys all laughed, then were silenced by the sound of some kind of crazy laugh echoing through the Guardian. Jaster and his brothers looked down the hall to see their brother Joker, sliding into the hall while running for his life towards them as he was laughing his head off, he then passed his brothers as he picked up speed. Then they heard the sound of th

What life brings upon us,
All those challenges in our lives,
So challenging for a normal being,
So impossible for a Jedi.
Yet I still love him.
He's grown up around it,
And so have I.
For all the things
I've never asked,
We should not, we're Jedi.
But I want his love.
Don't say. Don't whisper.
But I can't deny my feelings,
So Obi-Wan my never lover,
I love you...but I can't say it.

I'm sorry I could not save you.
But look up at me now, love,
Look up at me with those astonishing, crystal eyes
And know that I will love you
Until this heart of mine has given out.
I am your present
And your future;
I will love you for more than your body,
I will love your wild personality,
I will love your motherly instincts,
I will love your acceptance,
I will love your understanding,
I will love your "frustrations",
I will love your timidness,
I will love your stubbornness,
I will love your laughter,
I will love your tears,
I will love your scars,
I will love your flaws,
But most of all;
I will love you.

Since the very beginning of her life, Annette has been a scientist disorder can do nothing but poison her mind to death, and now her own tangled thoughts close the remote doors to safety.
Like in a tremendously delicate experiment, failure has led everything to the worst possible evolution, forcing her to get lost in a world were nothing seems to make sense any more.
Her eyelids start against the steel ceiling of the corridor. Blood is everywhere in that fateful day it runs in disorder, rebellious to its own path, it pours from the folds of the town, joining the cold taste of dirty iron. She feels that mass of cells escape in agony, faithful to the merciless bonds of gravity, and drip with its viscid fingers in the darkest pipes of the sewers.
Just now, though even among the overwhelming waves of disgust shaking her limbs a truly painful awareness wraps her mind, almost

Oh, why did I give it up to you?
I know it's my fault.
My expectations were greater than
what you were willing to offer,
and I got scared.
I tried shutting you out,
to gather myself together
behind a shield of apathy,

A horrible question, I know, but isn't that what aging is?
Rising more paper thin after every scraped knee and memory scabbed over,
Yet taller and taller after each step?
We measure our lives in units of misery nowadays.
Showering ourselves with sparkling pieces of armor, calling them crystallized teardrops
When we all know that they're just rhinestones glued to the body like a mask.
Shouting through a bullhorn how quiet and meek we are--
It's one thing to wear the paint on our face, but to swallow it and swish it over your throat so it colors your words is a whole other.
We wear our remorse and regret on our sleeves, bracelets of slits and pocketknives,
Flashing every drop of sweat like a tiara for our adoring crowds, varying in numbers, to swoon over us in a massive wave of pity.
We stretch ourselves to the point that pity feels good and safe, until we are a flat line, buried in a flurry of mistakes like ill-advised tattoos.

You could love me selfishly
And I could make you the happiest man on earth

Skimming through the sky
I'm sleepwalking through miles of star
I'm lost and I don't know why
I drown ever so slowly
In my own corrupted sleep
It's a storm of faded happiness
And a flood of broken dreams
I could bleed out a thousand oceans
And still be barely alive
Because when you've lost a part of yourself
You never truly die

She lodges her fingers down her throat.
Clasping onto the wall as she recklessly chokes.
She reinserts her fingers back in forcibly.
Deliriously trying to make her body thinner.
She swoons and slumps to the floor nauseously
As she attempts to regurgitate her dinner.
Her throat aches as she screeches out coarsely,
With her hand covering the image in the mirror.
Her head now rests on the on the rim of the toilet seat.
She wants to eat but she just has not got in her.
She desperately begins to scream out inaudibly.
Her mouth now tastes of something pulpy and bitter.
She examines the red color of the fluid cautiously.
Realizing that she has become too focused on her figure.
Her friend then knocks on the door thoughtfully.
She shouts out, "I'm okay I don't need a baby sitter."
Her friend continues to knock and waits outside awkwardly
Replying, "You promised me, you said that you are not a quitter"
The tap begins to run as she disguises her cough distortedly.
She knows her friend

Chapter 12 Among Other Things
Traversing through the dock's holding area was gradually becoming a depressing sight. The crowds continued to grow as more and more became refugees from the Reaper invasion. The photographs on the Memorial Wall piled atop each other, stained with the tears of their successors. Nevada disliked venturing through this level of the Citadel. It served as a painful reminder that she could be doing more, fighting harder and finding ways to bring this war to an end sooner.
Coming across the first make-shift room, she stumbled upon her shirtless Lieutenant. With his back towards a batarian tattooist, he appeared to be enjoying himself. He caught the familiar silhouette of his endearing Commander from the corner of his eyes and immediately began glowing.

The taxi pulled up to the hotel. The one inside stepped out, carrying his suitcase. He looked up at the hotel. ‘Hotel Noir’ was its name. He paid the taxi driver, and then proceeded towards the hotel’s doors. His name was Gary Malcon, and he was in this city on business.
Entering the lobby, Gary looked around at the paintings on the walls and the furniture. Even though his job took him many places, this was his first time at this hotel. He checked in at the front desk to get a room. His room was room 529. Gary thanked the employee working at the front desk and then started towards the elevator. In the elevator, Gary was enjoying the monotonous elevator music. He didn’t know why but he was feeling oddly optimistic today. Finally the elevator reached the fifth floor.
Gary stepped out of the elevator and looked around, after determining which way his room was, he began walking in the direction. When he reached his room, he took out the key card he got from the fron

Delta Squad remained in the weapons training room even after the others had left, uncomfortable with waiting while there was a mystery waiting to be solved on "Planet StarChild". It was named "StarChild" after it appearing out of no where two months ago. No known inhabitants, parents, environment all seemed native to those who saw it. Out of curiosity (and precaution), the Delta squad was to be sent as an investigation team to gain information on this "unknown rock"... But for now, the team was to wait as instructed by Gabe (a male scientist who assisted in the making of the clones) while he brought out "Their new team member".
Sev (RC-1207) used this wasted time of waiting to his advantage by attacking holographic droids. Scorch (RC-1162) and Fixer (RC-1140) sat on near by crates while the Delta Squad team leader, Boss or 38(RC-1138) paced anxiously.

Uma faca atravessa minha mente,
Dilacera os meus sonhos de repente
E arrasa tudo aquilo que deseja
Cada vez que avisto esperança em frente,
Cortam-me os olhos para que não veja
E qualquer desejo, qualquer que seja,
É podado ainda quando é semente
Sinto o gélido fio da navalha,
Cego, ele não corta, mas estraçalha
Enquanto roça em minha liberdade
As lâminas não têm tempo ou espaço
Mas basta uma real, forjada em aço,
Para que eu durma pela eternidade

I left behind the rage and sadness
I became a simple man
locked my madness there and then
I lived for years,completely sane
almost brought my death and bane
and then I yelled:"That's it!"
and ran and jumped into the pit
and with the darkest scream of glee
my madness have returned to me
as it brought color to my world
and I laid back as it had whorled
me and my madness both agree
that together we are free
alone we suffer too much pain
and so insane I shall remain.

Spike was filled with dread at the thought of what could've been in that scroll. He also felt regretful: He had it right in his hand, he could've read it to make sure, or at least keep it from being sent. Most of all, he felt guilt. He felt he had done his friend, basically his only family, a terrible wrong. Twilight was still reading her book, not even giving Spike so much as a glance.
Spike walked out of the room. He had that horrid feeling in the pit of his stomach you get when you know you're going to be punished. Spike knew that if Princess Celestia found out what happened between him and Rainbow
