Crash LandingSiri was used to finding her apprentice awake long before she was. She would hear Ferus moving through the apartment, and was generally glad that he kept himself busy with quiet tasks while she dozed: showering, watering the small plants they kept in the sitting room, setting out breakfast for the two of them. It was an easy routine, and a good way to begin a peaceful day.Crash Landing6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
That was why she knew something was wrong when she awoke that morning to complete silence. Slowly extricating herself from her blankets, she reached out through the bond she shared with her Padawan. Ferus, it seemed, was lost in his own thoughts, and not responding to her. She sighed quietly as she began dressing herself. Almost four years now shed been Ferus master. She knew what these days were like.
Just as shed suspected, her Padawan was standing near the one large window in their sitting room. His back was to her, but she could tell by his stance how tense he was, and she could make a go

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.

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.

Yes! I was the first out of the car. In my rush I managed to forget to close the car door, lose a shoe, and trip over myself all within the span of ten seconds. What could you expect from an excited 10-year-old, though?
Take it easy tiger, my dad said as he walked around the front of the car. Theres no need to rush.
I wrinkled my nose. Grr! Im not a tiger, Ima fearsome wolf! Rawr!

It felt like it'd been an eternity... I shook my head, breathing out deeply. I couldn't let this take over me. I wouldn't. This was something I had to do. This needed to be done.
Autumn leaves trailed over the rotted pavement as my bare feet tread the long since abandoned ground. This place was far too familiar for my liking, but I knew it wasn't the same. I knew it wasn't there.
I steeled myself against the bone chilling breeze. There was darkness, here. Thriving in the shadows and in the light... It knew no bounds and corrupted everything.
I turned down the nearest walkway... And stared. In front of me, the pathway dropped into nothingness. There was a black void looming in front of me, dark streams, tendrils of some sort of nonphysical existance twisting and twining throughout, reaching into everything. ... The void began to split into white, fluid spilling

I will be there for you. Always.
I left you flowers from the grove, like I always do. Will you pick them up like last time? Will you see me? These and many other questions flood my mind as fear and excitement rush through my head. So much has happened to me in the past few months but I havent forgotten about you.

Christian or otherwise, these days it's everyone's favorite Bible verse.
Or is it?
Perhaps we should say, it's everyone's favorite Bible verse when taken out of context.
First of all, let's get this straight: it's telling us that we can't condemn people as in, "you're going to Hell!"
Respectfully telling someone, in their best interest, that what they're doing is wrong? Not so much.
If we only looked a little further, we would also notice verses such as:
"Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment."
"If your brother sins, go and show him his fault in private; if he listens to you, you have won your brother."
Now that you don't have the Bible to back you up, there are a few things I would like to say about this obnoxious "NO JUDGING!!!!111" phase we're unfortunately going through at the moment.
If someone has sincerely (*non-immaturely) told you that they want you to go to Hell, you are excused. Mos

Chapter Two: Awakening
The singing of the birds roused Devlins attention to the world around him, waking him from an unsettling sleep. The morning light was not so intense, giving the impression that the sun had just risen. A deep and long yawn escaped his gaping mouth, rolling onto his back and stretching both arms and legs. His body felt oddly sore, yet he felt strangely revitalized and content. A smile curled over his lips, resting his left hand over his chest, as he opened his weary eyes to the world.
At once he was struck with confusion. What should have been the plain white glossy surface of his ceiling housing over him instead was the wide openness of the outside, dawns sun orange sky hovering above. A gentle morning wind blew from behind him, a slight shiver traveling over his body. The lumpy yet silky sheets from his mattress were replaced with the prickly mo

Scarred veins help blood flow through
Present and past are worlds apart
But each day old wounds feel new
Lingering thoughts rewind the tape
Dry eyes won't let tears flow
Gray flashbacks feel like mental rape
Heavy phantoms just won't go
The weight has grown over the years
Mourning ghosts infest the mind
Emotions flow out just like tears
Repressed feelings aren't so kind
And so the vault sits in the chest
Where all the pain is stored
A raw mind thinks its for the best
Closure doors stand unexplored
Bright keys shine light that burns the soul
Desperate hands reach past the pain
Black comfort feels just like control
If it wins light shines in vain
My Life As WolfI awoke with a start. –It happened again.- I thought as I looked around at my surroundings. Snow, and lots of it. I was in a forest, full of conifer trees and a few deciduous trees. The sky was a hazy gray. The snow clouds. I remembered where I was now. Alaska. I stood up and looked down. The same fur I had always had: a mix of gray and white. I was on four legs, and I had a bushy tail, a muzzle and yellow eyes. I was a wolf. I lowered my head. The dream. It was of my past life. Of being human.My Life As Wolf8 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

She's a shadow in his mind.
A reminder of the life he forgot.
The wife he could've had.
Beside him all day,
And through the night.
Yet her body lies forever imprisoned.
He never visits her.
Instead he hears her sobs at night,
And can't live to see reality.
No longer does he love her,
The pain snubbed the flames out.

I see the world for what it truly is.
The pain, the suffering,
And even the malice that fills the void.
I don't understand how my human,
How my other half, can stand them.
With their selfish wants,
And their furless bodies,
It amazes me how he can walk among them,
And not quiver at their strangeness.
But maybe it's me who's strange…
The one who might not fit.
I hide in the fabric of his soul,
Forever watching the world,
And waiting for another who is just like us,
Another who can understand…
Though my time does get lonely,
I often enjoy giving my human things,
That remind him of what he truly is,
Something that few can ever obtain.
I give him my own sight.
I let him run through the trees,
And let him feel the wind through my fur,
I even give him the thrill of chasing a deer.
Though these are mere illusions,
They are still as strong as the day I saw them,
Through my two golden orbs.
And one day soon,
One day very soon…

So tonight, like every night thus far, two tears will run from my eyes
My heart showing me its true feelings and understanding that I still cannot completely comprehend
Things the world only writes off as fantasies

My eighteenth party was awesome. I didn't even mind that my mom had invited every relative on her side known to man. And they all seemed so excited that I was turning eighteen! I think they were more into it than I was, truth be told.
The few people on my dad's side were not quite as upbeat. In fact, they seemed quite the opposite. My dad's mom kept sneaking these glances at me, and, honestly, it made me feel weird. So I went off and hung out with my friends. They had all managed to attend, and it seemed as if it would be one of those few nights that would linger in my memory as near-perfect.

Dressed in our best to protect,
How many girls dream of wearing the flames?

But underneath the handmaiden title,
We see the wild girl the Queen really is.

We enjoy a good joke.

The hairdo precise,
The robes carefully chosen,
And on with our flames.

To her great relief, no one approached her with afterthought comments or lingering concerns they had regarding the Council meeting that had recently been adjourned.
