TAIIDAN REPUBLIC (9524-9624 GSY)
The Taiidan Republic gained life in the year or so after the death of the Imperial Emperor Riesstiu IVth over the planet Hiigara when the natives of that planet defeated him. It would exist from 9524 and slowly loose strength until 9624, where it was ultimately destroyed by the Vaygr Armada under the leadership of Warlord Makaan. The Republic has been carried on by some factions since, but remains only an idea.
The history of the Republic began three months after the death of the Emperor, where Taiidani officials began considering what kind of leadership would replace Emperor Riesstius Imperial rule.
During this time, diverse ideas were beginning to sprout in the former Taiidan empire on how things could be different than the system of Emperors that had reigned in Taiidan ever since their expansion into the stars. Among these new ideas was the notion of a Democracy- something that other empires like the Ca

It is a dark time for the Empire.
Following the death of EMPEROR PALPATINE
and its defeat at the BATTLE OF ENDOR, the Empire has begun
to crumble and fight amongst itself. The remaining faction, known as the IMPERIAL REMNANT, has fled to the Outer Rim to regroup and regain the power to crush the NEW REPUBLIC once and for all. A valuable store of cortosis has been found on the oceanic world of BAL'DEMNIC, and a promising young officer, ERRIL KAVEN, has been sent to oversee the mining operation, unaware that the Remnant's presence there has been discovered...
Bal'demnic. An oceanic planet in the Bak'rofsen system of the Auril sector. Outer Rim.
The commander stepped into the elevator and the doors hissed closed behind him. The car began to move upward.
So far the mining operation had been running smoothly despite the locals and the nuisance presented by the mine crabs. The crabs were hardly more than pests to the personnel assigned to the operati

"Yes! She just came in from the mountain path, club a-swinging. She demands food and drink! We tried to repel her, but it only made her angrier " explained the farmer frantically, whom the samurai suddenly noticed was rather bloody and battered-looking.
"Hmph!" grunted one of the swordsmen, taking one last shot of rice wine and forcefully slamming his cup onto the wooden bar. "How dare that demon invade the sanctity of our village?! We will show her."
"Be careful, she's strongand she's a big one too" gulped the farmer.
Upon exiting the bar, the scene that greeted the swordsmen was chaos. The smell of ash and fire hung in the air, and they could see debris from the wooden buildings all over. Villagers were running in a panic, screaming, and they could hear the sound of weapons and battle.
They turned towards the village square,

The windows to the room are dusty and dirty, stained with age and eternal abandonment, and the paint peels off the walls like an angry elderly man glaring at the squandered youth in front of him. Rays of light sneak through the clean specks on the otherwise filthy windows, giving the room an eerie yellow glow.the sounds of aperture3 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
Slowly, a dirty tile in the middle of the black and white checkered floor rises up, some dust shaking off it as it made it's agonizingly slow crawl upwards. It finally came to a screeching halt and the panel opened up to reveal a small little monitor, the size of a plate.
"Hello, honey." A humanoid voice laced with robotic interference chimed. "Today's Monday, dear, it's good to see you again. I miss you. I'll will be back shortly, just have a few more tests to do for Mr. Johnson." The scre

It was a dark night, well actually it would have been more appropriate to say early in the morning but these things always start at night, and TLink was seated at his desk, lamp illuminating his recent art works of Stacky. He was working at the time on a particularly annoying piece, it was a comic strip where water would be absorbed by Stacky into her breasts but he couldn't get the picture to look quite right.
He worked long and hard for several more hours on the picture trying to fix it but nothing resulted in what he wanted. It wasn't until Stacky emerged from their room dressed in a loose dressing gown that he looked up, it was morning and he had been sitting there for a good portion of the night. He sighed.
Stacky though was feeling awake and was ready for an amazing day; she moved behind her fiancée and stood behind him and pressed her boobs against his head. TLink's hand stopped moving as her chest pushed against his head, he blushed and leant forward to remove his head, he need

CHARACTER NAME: Siin Dominic (See-in Dom-en-neek)
AGE (Apparent Age): Ageless (Appears to be in her mid-20's)
EYES: Bright Blue
RACE: Shadow Kin (posing as a human)
APPEARANCE: A petite beauty, Siin makes a point of always presenting an elegantly sensual appearance to the world. She seems at home amongst a courtly atmosphere, her wavy black locks always perfectly plaited and her porcelain skin always swathed in the finest materials. For the most part, she presents herself as a queenly figure of authority and is never seen without attending servants. Those who have seen her in battle would swear any weapon or blood on her person was merely an illusion, but little do they know, this is quite the opposite, for her true appearance is one of a twisted creature with tattered wings, pale pearly white skin, the same glittering blue eyes, and spiraling horns.

Fifty-seven octaves below middle C, hundreds of thousands of tiny stars with little worlds trailing atmospheres in elliptical orbits. Double-star systems, triple-star, more; planets, civilisations, dark matter, tangible matter, all circling, swarming, humming together in one enormous note, not bumping together but carrying a wave from the centre of their island universe, expanding out into space
Sound cannot exist in a vacuum. This is a widely known fact. And space is a vacuum, sure. But only when you look at it from here, from our tiny little world. Close your eyes, zoom out, and look at the celestial spheres from their view; and space isn't so thin after all. Close your eyes, zoom in, and even our dense atmosphere is just atoms in a vacuum of their own. Sound as we know it, sure, that doesn't exist outside our little stardust orb. It's too small, too fragil

A billboard that had the Mayor's face and her hand holding up the city of Riverton with a sign saying it's the Safest City In America. Suddenly two of her teeth open up as Inspector Paul Gadget and Detective Kathelyn Gizmo.
"Hmm...anything Katie ?"asked Paul.
"Nothing, anything on your side Paul ?"asked Katie as she kept searching.
"Nope...how about you two ?"asked Paul as the two looked up. Above them were the Gadgetinis, Digit and Fidgit. The two little bots made by Katie and Penny, the Lieutenant niece. They really sound like John, but with a higher and raspy voice, like when holding your nose when talking funny.
"No, no; we see nothing"said Digit and Fidgit as they looked around and were startled to see each other. The four stretched their bodies back together and sat in the Gadget mobile.

The darkness engulfed me. I felt it surround me in bitter cold blackness. It was so utterly onyx that I lost all sense of direction, but felt an insatiable need to move. The cold around me cut like daggers as I pushed forward into oblivion. Soon I saw a golden light ahead of me. It seemed so warm and inviting that I quickened my pace. When I did the light began to pulse. It seemed that the closer toward it I ran, the farther away it became. It soon diminished, and I was again lost in the fathomless depths of darkness. I continued to race forward for innumerable amounts of time. I felt I was deep into an ocean of ink, but knew that I had barely left the surface. I pushed ever forward, afraid that if I stayed still I would certainly freeze. I seemed tireless in the numbing atmosphere, constantly shivering with cold and exertion. Again I saw the teasing light, forever before me but always unreachable. Again and again I chased the light until it diminishe

Do not hide thy face from me
May my prayer come before you
Lord, do not ignore my plea
For my soul is greatly troubled
And my life draws near the grave
I am counted with the fallen
But am I one thou will not save?
I have been forgotten
I have been severed from thy hand
My strength hath been expended;
No longer can I stand
To the lowest pit Ive sunk
Of your bitter cup, Ive drunk
and I am overwhelmed
My closest friends shun thoughts of me
I am repulsive to their eyes
I cannot come forth, I am confined
avoided and despised
I call to thee O Lord
Do you show your wonders to the dead?
If I spread my hands before you,
Would you reach out or turn your head?
Do you show faithfulness in Abaddon?
Is your love declared in death?
Are you known in the Land of Oblivion?
Can the dead praise without breath?
Why dost thou reject me?
Why hidest thou thy face?
Daily, I cry out for help,
Hast thou withdrawn thy grace?
I long hath been afflicted

Cecilia Crimsondragon Ch. 1Infamous Boba Fett was actually feeling unsure as he walked into the Kaminoan Prime Minister's chamber. He still couldn't belive what he was going to do. He couldn't say why, either. He just wanted to. And to top everything off, a weird name was stuck in his head. Cecilia.... A girls name, at that. So heartless, unfeeling Boba Fett was feeling emotions. And it bugged him.Cecilia Crimsondragon Ch. 110 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
The truth was, Boba was going to clone himself, as his father Jango had cloned himself before him. If he thought about it, it made perfect since. He was not invinible, as the Sarlacc incident had proved. And someone had to continue bounty hunting when he left. And rather then let someone like Bossk or Zuckuss somehow produce a heir that would, somehow perhaps, become the best bounty hunter, he would beat them to it.
So sooner then he had expected, he had landed on Kamino, and was now begining his request for a clone.

Hear what I have to say.
I'm not your usual speech giver
But lend an ear this way.
Are you truly satisfied with the state of things?
Some higher than others just because of where they live?
I didn't think so, I hear disapproval.
Then listen, some food for thought I will give.
In my eye, every man is equal.
No one was born any less or more.
Why is it that because of status
To heavenly heights some must soar?
What is status? Wealth and money?
What is wealth? How much you possess?
Everyone lays claim to something,
Some people have more, some people have less.
Simple math. So why complicate it?
Why can't everyone enjoy the same?
No matter how wealthy a person can be
They can't stop the sun. They can't bring the rain.
So why discriminate against us peasants?
Why scorn us if we're poverty born?
We've all come from the Well of All Sparks,
And we all die, and we all mourn.
Do you, my people, enjoy life in the slums?
I didn't think so

After Phillip's party, Alter slumped back home and took a well deserved rest. He had enjoyed every moment that he spent at the bar, and he knew that he would remember it for years to come. When he awoke the next day, he was astonished to find Laila sitting on his couch with an object in her hands. The echidna had a gloomy, yet firm, expression on her face. This can't be good... Inquisitive, Alter sat next to her and waited for her to speak. He got a good look at the object she was twiddling with. It was a metallic green badge that took the form of a sharp 'V' with similar contours to an electric bolt.
"Alter..." Laila started. "There is something that you and I both know, and yet, only you cannot remember it."
"How is that so? What are you talking about??" the wolf asked consecutively. Even though Alter acted as though he was clueless, he had a feeling that Laila's sudden appearance to him and that ba

Anika paced back and forth with her brow furrowed and her arms crossed. Captain Coupe had left the ship with all of the remaining officers two hours ago. Rylie monitored Anika's path every time she finished a chapter of the ebook she was reading. The only other sound apart from Anika's footsteps was Ginette's munching; which was a fairly accurate indicator of her level of stress.

The monotonic digital voice of the ship's computer startled the young women, who screamed in unison.

The three women dashed from the kitchenette; the doors automatically opening as they got near them. Anika reached the bridge first and got a glimpse of the Captain's face before the screen became a sea of static and then turned blank.

Sometimes in life things seem to come together almost at random. Many people spend the days leading up to New Years telling themselves that they're going to do this or stop doing that. Most don't last and those going past a week are truly dedicated to the cause (or under doctor's orders). Why does this happen? Wrong mindset. The dedication is there, but the true gravity of their decision hasn't sunk in yet. So how does one go around changing your lifestyle for the better?
Up until February this year I was a smoker, not the pack-a-day kind of smoker, but a smoker nonetheless. I also weighed the wrong side of 110 kg (242 pounds for the non-metrics). For a very long time I wanted to quit, but nicotine addiction is a harsh thing and I failed miserably in my first attempt in 2010. So I kept going, gradually reducing my smokes a day from about twelve to a rather less unhealthy seven. I was proud of myself for achieving as much, but

Steve reached up to turn off the water. They sat there on the wash rack floor, internal fans whirring to cool them. Steve could barely think about what had just happened. It was too much to believe.
Starscream had always been untouchable, rank and social class separating them like bulletproof glass. But here they were, entangled on the wash rack floor. The glass was gone. They had collided, and now he knew the warm feel of the seeker's plating, the sensation of his slender digits sliding over him, the intoxicating sound of his vocals crying out in pleasure. And there was the meeting of their optics. It wasn't like times when the seeker had beaten him for bringing bad news. It was the recognition of two sparks.
Starscream watched the other cons leave. Steve couldn't blame them for being voyeurs, even if he didn't approve. Officers didn't associate with drones, much less walk into the eradicon wash racks and let one of them... oh Primus. The talk would be endless. He didn't look forwar
