Battle fields ahead; this war was not meant to be.
A sudden surge of anger though released all liberty.
Standing before the anger; an icy, cold stare.
Will you lay down your life, into deaths angry lair?
Bitterness and sorrow flow, mingled in the blood.
Screams of pain escape and through the air they flood.
Cold and merciless foe’s; they fight just as hard.
Will you lay down your life, under the sword’s shard?
The clash of sides in disagreement; fear hangs nearby.
The wounded drop to the ground; some, a deathly sigh.
The battle is long, it wears people hard and through.
Will you lay down your life, as others did for you?
Reaching down a hand, soldiers grasp this chance.
Healing can be done though most get no second glance.
Back to the battle; smoke and loss fill the air.
Will you lay down your life, as others have done there.
The fight is drawing nigh, many people are gone.
There is no time though to gather dead or sing song.
A victory is to be decided now; the battle conti

Guardian at the GateGuardian at the Gate11 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
Where you fell,
Is where I stand
In this hell,
That was our land.
Thy dammed foes
From your high mound,
Deliver bloody blows.
Until I fall,
On this field,
Until I enter, god's holy hall
I will not yield.
You think you can best me?
Then draw your sword,
And we will see,
Who will meet thy lord.
I stand alone,
In your path
On sturdy stone,
Feel my wraith!
I stand ready
I stand steady
You leave threats at my ear
But at the end, of this mountain hall
When you draw near
Only you, will fall.
So come to me, under this darkened sky
Filled by anger, driven by hate
March to me, meet your fate
A bloody death from the Guardian, at the Gate.

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

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

CIS vs GAR WarshipsCIS Warships vs. Republic warshipsCIS vs GAR Warships7 years ago in Philosophy & Perspectives More Like This
The Republic seems to have the advantage in capital ship combat, but the CIS has some equalizing advantages.
Many of the CIS warships are designed for mass production, and were designed for business scores not a full scale war. Many of the CIS leaders were cheap, and wouldnt spend the money for a traditional fleet. Only the Providences seem to be specifically designed for combat. The Lukrehulks are simply converted freighters with VERY strong shields and some turbolaser offensive capability., but with the sheer number of Turbolasers and the shield power added, with the fighter and troop compliment, a Lucrehulk is much a more battle-worthy ship than a carrier like a Venator (why it takes a flotilla to take them down). That's not bad at all for a converted ship, isn't it The Recusants are mass-produced destroyers. The Munificents are originally used to harass worlds heavily in debt, guard treasure vaults, and transfer finan

How Sequels Took Away From ALIEN's MysteryHow Sequels Took Away From ALIEN's Mystery3 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
What is the Alien?
I love science-fiction.
The fact that I love science-fiction is a defining aspect of my character. The genre has influenced all my creative works whether what I write is of the same genre or not. Novels such as George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four and movies such as Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey have played a large part in defining my views of fiction and film. Orwell's novel presented a terrifying look into an alternate history where a totalitarian government had taken control of every aspect of life. That was science-fiction as a platform for a message. Stanley Kubrick's film is art in motion, using science-fiction for an abstract study of man's intelligence, evolution, and what lay in the future. These proved that science-fiction could be more than the space operas of Star Wars and Star Trek which, while entertaining, didn't touch me on a psychologica

I hate love poemsI hate love poems.I hate love poems10 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I am sick to death with,
"How soft are his lips",
"The curve of her hips",
I don't want to hear about these fallacies you build up in your head,
And write in your little black book to show your friends,
Pretending you're some great poet.
The world is filled with billions of topics, and yet,
Nine times out of ten,
Amateurs, with their books of words
And rhyming dictionaries,
Chose to write about an emotion, a fear of loneliness.
"Her golden hair",
"His chocolate stare",
I can't take it anymore.
One at a time, you march onto stage, and squint in the glaring spotlight
As you smile at the faceless, dark audience
And pour out your thoughts on love
With bad rhyming and questionable syncopation.
Poem after poem after poem
"I feel his hands upon my neck",
"When you're gone I am a wreck",
And I sit there, on that itchy green sofa and wish
With every single bone in my body,
Going past the bones and wishing with every inch of myself,
That I was anywhere but here.
