Order 66: Part IShe had been sleeping when the galaxy suddenly and uxeplainably turned on its head. The steady rain--a redundant term in the seemingly endless storms of Doronaa, the third planet of the Dandor system--had drummed her to sleep and, in the wake of their last battle, her body had shut down before she could strip out of her outter robes. Her last thought before the sweet nothingness of slumber had been a mild irritation that her normally lavender and green robes were fading to a muddy brown at the ends of the sleeves, legs and tabard; when they finally made it back to Coruscant she was going to have to put in for a new set so that she would have respectable clothing for her Knighting ceremony. Even her hair had deepened from its usual firery orange to the primal crimson of fresh blood; a color she was becoming all too familliar with. She had pleasant thoughts of her dry hair whipping behind her in the open cockpit of one of the Temple's speedersOrder 66: Part I9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

The 501st legion was one of the best legions in the Repubilc and now it had turned into Vader's personal stormtrooper unit. Captain Rex and the 501st landed on Coruscant finally carring out Order 66; the extermination of all the Jedi who were believed to have rebelled against the Republic. The way the events turned out was nothing but the shooting of blasters and the cries of pain right before the silence of death. On the way to Coruscant, every clone in the ship was quiet. Did they want to kill the Jedi who throughout the whole war against the Seperatists had shown care and eternal loyalty to them? Should they have done something? Did they have doubts? Any thoughts about what they were about to do? Of course there were some who felt this way, in paticular, Rex, who felt he was doing injustice and literally stabbing them in the back. Even so, not a single word was said in the ship, on Coruscant or even when they came marching into t

Se que soy igual a ti,
Nada extraño en mí reflejo,
Mas tú no lo ves así.
Tú me miras cual enfermo,

Mas no merezco yo este infierno,
No escogí ser lo que soy.
Todos somos diferentes,
No lo puedes comprender?
Ningún daño te he causado,
Igual debes responder.
Mas tus puños he sentido,
En tus ojos hay rencor,
Las palabras más hirientes,
Has lanzado sin temor.
Mis lamentos te divierten,
Odio hay en tu corazón,
No hay ayuda alrededor.
Y alguien dice ser mi amigo,
Aceptarme como soy,
Pero un muro nos separa,
Yo del otro lado estoy.
Te han llamado tolerante,
Eres una inspiración,
Orgulloso te has sentido,
Yo no entiendo la razón.
Se tolera algo molesto,
Un insulto o el dolor,

No es rechazo el día de hoy?
Estoy harto de prejuicios,
De ser una decepción,
De miradas de reproche,

Qymaen jal Sheelal remembered his first steps on Kalee's soil, how proud his parents were. It was practically since those first steps that he had learned of war, its cruel tales that were spun and those of his family who had died. Qymaen was born and raised on these tales, and knew of nothing more then them. Only one story withstood in his mind and pried him away from the murky depths of war. The Jedi: remarkable warriors, skilled diplomats, rejuvenating futures. They were a symbol of hope for Qymaen, their stories told time and again by his mother of the great help they brought since the times of the Kaleesh-Bitthævrian War War.

As Princess in charge of night rather than day, my sleep cycle revolved around the night shift. I didn't precisely need sleep as an Alicorn and moon goddess, but I appreciated just how relaxing it was to curl up in bed. And Celly insisted I needed the sleep cycles to recover properly. Six work nights out of seven were not too exhausting given I simply held night court of the palace, dealing with late night emergencies, or more often just reading.
I no longer fear my own sleep, after a year, the nightmares had finally stopped. And with Celly I had found my freedom from not only Nightmare Moon but also my old insecurities.
I stayed up late (early) last night though, for on one day out of seven I liked to explore how changed the night had become in a thousand years. Nightclubs were a nice invention, so were twen

Lord Vader sat on his Imperial throne as he waited for another messenger to come before him and give reports relating to the Galactic Empire's latest activities. He wore a black military uniform with a sleeveless robe, both fastened tightly with the uniform's belt. On that belt he had the Lightsaber of Anakin Skywalker on his right side, and his own Sith Lightsaber on his left. He wore a black cape over his shoulders and draped over his back. The cape was fastened by a chain link that rested on his chest. Vader's cybernetic right arm was still covered by the black battle glove he wore during the Clone Wars.
The double doors on the opposite end of his throne room opened. Although he was expecting another messenger, the young man walking towards him didn't surprise him in the least. This man was about 20 years in age, had his hair trimmed to his scalp, and medium facial features. He wore dark robes and a hooded cape, had gloved
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.

Dessel was to blame for the death of the soldier.
He fled Apatros, where he worked the cortosis mines
And joined the Sith in battle on the front lines.
Over time, his power grew
And the Sith Lords knew
That they must train him, of course
For he was strong in the Force.
He was taken to the Academy on Korriban
That had once been destroyed by redeemed Jedi, Revan.
There, he began to train
And cortosis miner Dessel became Dark Lord Bane.
Now he was a Sith apprentice
In the Brotherhood of Darkness.
But he thought their leader, Kaan, was a fool
Who didn't know how the Sith should rule.
Lord Kaan had a plan
To bring all of the apprentices to Ruusan
And crush the Army of Light
With his new Sith might.
But Bane left to Lehon
Where he found Darth Revan's holocron
And learned ancient power thought to be myth
That would bring victory to the Sith.
On Ruusan, the Jedi had the upper hand, it was clear
And Kaan knew the end was near

I was reviewing the reports from around Skyrim that Nazir had gathered from his contacts. Mostly I was focusing on how the Civil War was progressing. Falkreath had finally fallen in late autumn of last year. Fort Neugrad should have been an easy victory, especially after the grueling campaign against Whiterun the year before.
However, thanks to the whispers I had placed in the right ears, some folk were uneasy about the supposed Dragonborn assisting Ulfric's rebellion. She had arrived late in the siege against Balgruuf and had provided invaluable morale to the troops in helping defeat him, but since then the pretender had been hiding in Windhelm instead of leading the charge on the field.
There was only one reason for that: she could not produce a thu'um, a dragon shout. I had frequently used my shouts wherever I went when I was the Dragonborn. Many people did not know me by name or face because of the obscuring dragon scale helm I used to wear, but
