Last Night of the WorldJessie sighed and laid out on her bunk on the Hope Springs. Two weeks since Order 66 and she was so grateful, so very, very grateful that instead of killing her, her Captain, her Tyr, had replied affirmative and fired two shots into a damaged and non-functioning console to make the now-Emperor Palpatine think he'd followed his orders. Now Jessie and the entire 66th Infantry were mercenaries for hire. Should they meet with Darth Vader, formerly Republic War Hero Anakin Skywalker, Jessie knew there would be no denying she was alive. But for now she and her men were safe, moving swiftly away from the Empire's power base of Coruscant and looking for other Jedi and Clones who had disobeyed their orders. She knew for a fact that Anakin's former Padawan Ahsoka Tano and Captain Rex were safe. They were aboard the ship. Ahsoka had been on board when the Order came in and Rex had radioed in shortly after, saying that Anakin's last actions as a General in the Republic Army had been to release himLast Night of the World6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

"Rex?" Ahsoka's voice was nothing more than a whisper.
Rex hurried to her side and knelt by her. He grabbed her free hand in his and held it. She squeezed his hand. Her grip was already weak. Rex glanced at her wounds and winced. They were far beyond his skill, or even Kix's, if the medic hadn't deserted years ago. Besides, what good would trying to save her life do when it would lead to her capture and torture? "I'm here." It was all Rex could say.
Ahsoka coughed. "You shouldn't be here, with them." Her gaze landed on Vishi, who crept closer, probably curious about why Rex was holding a rebel's hand instead of finishing her off.
"They're just kids. They need someone to keep them safe," Rex told her, guilt pulsing through him. All his true brothers, Jesse, Kix, and a few others, had deserted years ago while he'd stayed in the Empire, like the terrified boys he'd charged himself with protecting.

Donning his battered orange jacket and a worn pair of pants, Admiral Carth Onasi abandoned his military dedication -- and posture -- in attempt to fit in with the crowd. He'd been tracking down various information brokers and well-traveled smugglers with hopes that someone would have news of Revan. Unfortunately, due to his promise, his selection was restricted to whatever scum was stupid enough to work in whatever Republic territory he was stationed at.
In this instance, he had been recommended the services of an up-and-coming Bothan sludge news reporter who seemed to know more about the celebrities she was stalking than their own mothers. He'd reviewed the reports local authorities had filed against her and found it incredibly easy to predict what nightclub she would make her next appearance at. Driven by the desire for information and the need for a stiff drink, he found himself seated next to her at the club's strategically lit bar.

Under his white stormtrooper helmet, Rex's gaze darted from one soldier to another. They ran down the canyon path. Only a few attempted to use the canyon wall for cover. Most ran along the trail, some so close to the edge they sent pebbles plunging into the canyon depths. Just because the rebel base was supposed to be five klicks ahead didn't mean there wouldn't be some sort of ambush
These drafted men made the most inexperienced shiny look like a seasoned veteran. Ever since they'd been forced into the war, Rex had made it his full-time duty to keep the boys safe.
Rex paced himself, running more toward the back of the row. Even with the twisting canyon, they were badly exposed on the trail. It was only wide enough for two men to run side by side and the lack of cover worried Rex. The rebels wouldn't miss an opportunity like this.
One of the higher ranking stormtrooper waved to Rex and the other stragglers. "Get a move on. The captain says those rebel

Goran leaned over, hands on his knees as he caught his breath.
"You win today Thom," he said, his voice carrying a challenge. I nodded. The air between us was thick with competition and silence. It reminded me of when we had first begun practicing together. And then Goran smiled.
"It was a good game. You're getting better," he said. I smiled back, blushing. There was no way I could not feel humbled by that compliment. We walked to where our Nike bags lay and picked them up so we could head back to my house.

Atton couldn't believe he had told her about his past. But when she confronted him on Nar Shadaa about Atton' not being his real name, he had been caught off guard. And he was never caught off guard. And when she pressed him for details, he just couldn't stop himself from telling her everything. He had been so angry. With her, for making him confess it all.

"Ahsoka? Is.. Is that really you?" Anakin asked, standing awe-stuck.
The padawan stood with a horrified expession on her face. She didn't know what to do. Her lightsaber fell to the ground and rolled away before Ahsoka herself fell to her knees, tears threating to take over her eyes. Anakin rushed to her side and brought her into an embrace. Ahsoka let her tears take over.

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

Ice and snow swirled around the leaping and jumping form. Narvina, a female human, jumped and slashed downward at her imaginary opponent. Her imaginary opponent was actually a rock formation, which was quickly decapitated by the young Jedi Knight's swinging lightsaber. Narvina landed lightly upon her booted feet. Sweat leaked from her pores, and slowly dripped off of her nose.
Panting, the Knight dropped her stance, and disengaged her lightsaber. The blue blade retreated into the hilt of the saber with a slight hiss. Narvina stood in the snowstorm, inspecting her handiwork. Stone fragments littered the snow covered ground, quickly being covered in the fluffy white stuff. All of the formations within a twenty foot radius of the Jedi were maimed in some way. Deep cuts and even whole pieces of stone were hewed from the formations, leaving the stones scarred.
Satisfied, the young Knight realized she was getting cold. She pulled her fur parka closely about herself an

So you really wanna go on like this conversation had never happened?" Sebastian had asked her skeptically.
It would just things complicate too much otherwise, wouldn't it?" she replied, her face being a mask again.
And in this moment Sebastian just had wanted to wrap his arms around her, telling her there was no need to torture herself like this. But then he had realized that he was just the same. Torturing himself with dreaming about her every night when he wasn't too drunk or too tired to dream. It even didn't help much to tell himself Hawke was only playing with him, cause a small corner in his mind was persuaded now that she didn't. And that was why he wouldn't be able to resist her forever. Not anymore. She had showed him her real face for the blink of an eye, for one true moment they'd shared together, and it showed him that he would accommodate to her when she continued to flirt with him. And then? What would be then? Would she leave him, just like he had done

As much as Hawke liked Isabelas kind of humor normally, she totally didn't felt like laughing about it now. Grand Cleric Elthina had informed her earlier that Sebastian hadn't shown up for the mass this morning or the one the morning before. And that she had had no idea where he could be. So Hawke had promised her to look for him.
