The order has finally come through.
And our friendship is cast aside.
Against my finer judgement.
An order imprinted inside.
Obi-Wan may be my friend,
But the cannon fires under my order.
And to his death Kenobi goes,
A traitor of the empire.
I hate the way he had to die.
The Xavier: PrologueThe Xavier, a standard Obsidian Class Luna Destroyer- one of the most powerful starships in the Syrunese People's Interstellar Fleet; a fleet built by the people, for the people- be it defence or otherwise. The Xavier was a 2401 meter long, 4.914 million tonne warship with its crew compliment of around 2000 individuals and complete with a weapons array consisting of 36 standard Ion Cannons, 8 anti-matter capable missile ports and a first class 20 Yotta Volt Tesla forward battery, and just to be sure it didn't run out of firepower; it held 18 Demious class fighters- each easily capable of destroying a Koron heavy freighter. The Obsidians were the dreadnoughts of the fleet and they held spacial superiority no matter what sector they propelled into.The Xavier: Prologue3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
It was through these destroyers the Koron-Syruni treaty was signed, afterall even the warrior race of the Korons knew they could not defeat even one Obsidian- never mind the 8 stationed on their border.

My Life For The StarsI used to love the nightMy Life For The Stars3 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Where the stars are shinning so bright.
Countless stars filtered the vast skies
Which seems like thousands of fireflies.
I often sat next to my window
With the stars that gives out a soft glow.
I smiled a smile that is so cheeky
As they smiled back to me.
By daytime I couldn't wait for the night to come
To talk to the stars and have some fun.
They twinkled with delight
When I told them many insights.
They are like diamonds upon the dark veil
With so many tales they have yet to tell.
But now what happened to them, I wondered
As my body gave a violent shuddered.
They no longer shone as bright as they used too
The inky sky is now dark like a black lagoon.
Not a hint of spark
In the sky that is so dark.
The lights that used to show me my way
Has left me astray.
Where are they?
I pondered on that question every night and day.
Thick black smoke has covered the stars
Which came from factories to small things like cigars.
I wish to see the stars
Which once was ours.

- This meeting of the Inter-Federation Armed Forces is in session, as of now. Boccioni said. Even though she was a First Fleeter, she out-ranked everybody in the room, given that her only two superiors were the Fleet Admiral of Starfleet and the C in C of the Federation. The slight buzz of chatter that filled the room ended abruptly. The time for being official has begun.

No, there are many colours in a rainbow.

Cat's CradleI used to play ‘Cat’s Cradle’Cat's Cradle1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
At the tender age of ten
But now I think I’ve lost the knack,
Because I’ve not played it since then.
Knobbly fingers are not nimble,
But they do remember touch,
The feel of children’s and lovers’ skin
Perhaps I think too much?
From this bright window,
Where I sit, I look outside,
Reminiscing on my life
From toddler to a bride.
Many years ago I was a nurse,
My hands tended to the sick,
My hands were white and smooth then
And now they're red and thick.
My daughter came to see me,
Can’t remember when at all?
But last time in her pocket,
She took out this small ball.
It was actually a ball of wool,
Round my fingers, wool was tied,
I played Cat’s Cradle with my daughter...
And afterwards I cried.

Steve sighed as he walked into the apartment, desperately trying not to close his eyes. He had a boring day at S.H.I.E.L.D and also had to endure a meeting at the end of the day.
The only consolation prize he felt was coming home to Tony Stark, his seemingly eccentric, rude, impulsive, arrogant trickster boyfriend.
Right now, the man in question was nowhere to be found.
Steve sighed again. "He's probably downstairs in the basement with Javis, working on another project or something like that."
He hung up his coat and headed towards the shower, fully intent on showering and taking a nap for a while to get away from life as it was.
He found the bathroom and shed his blue shirt, black jeans, socks and shoes and turned on the hot water.
While in the shower he wet his face and hair, trying to wash away the stress of the day.
Had he been looking, he would have seen someone sneak into the bathroom and take the red towels placed on the counter and the towel rail preferably and put a red

I am going to need
more of you
tonight, when everything
has turned sour
and the world looks
like a big black hole
I see the ones
with their mouths filled
of bitter stones
ready to be thrown
at the ones they take for granted
I am stormed by words
that do no good to my soul
and my heart is butchered
into million pieces
that seem impossible
to mend, every time
when I offer love
with a hope to bring
life into their empty bodies
that has not learned yet
how to breathe
I see my reflection
dissolving into rivulets
as thousand little stars
disappear against their will
under a secret sky
I grab you closer
and soak my wounds
onto a night's prayer
before I fall asleep
between my faith
and the warmth
of your light
the child of me
to a broken dream

My name is none of your concern
But what is your concern
Is the lie in which you raise
Is the lie you teach
To your child
Is the lie you feed
With which you feed Yourself.
I don't care who you are
But what I care about
Is one groups fate
All of you claim to know them
Yet you throw shit at them
Do you know anything at all?
Their name I shall reveal
When the time shall come
Because you are eager to destroy
Everything that you can't control,
Why don't you kill your own family
Sorry, You just did

Two shots for the wife
One shot for the dog

One shot remains
So how's it going to be?

In your head

Why do you let your creation?

Paul was a good guy, too. As much as Mat wanted to blame him, he lacked legitimate basis. Chris couldn't come into work last minute, and Paul couldn't find anyone else to take the shift. Against his better judgment, Mat agreed and hated himself for it.
Only six hours, Mat reminded himself: shorter than any school day. Before he knew it, he could go home and—oh, yeah, he hadn't gone inside yet.
Forgetting his signature smile, Mat entered the café and stomped past the counter for an apron.
"Toodle-oo," chirped the new girl, already halfway to the door.
Mat put on Led Zeppelin and tried not to feel sorry for himself. It wasn't that big a deal. It was just one night. He didn't have a hot date or a ticket to some expensive event. Besides, there were… eight people in line he hadn't noticed until right now. Awkward.

My dream started out in this car...it felt like spring or summer and we were blockaded in the middle of this city street. I was with one heavy-set blonde girl at the drivers seat with TONS of cans of yellow monster around her area and one dark brown haired skinnier girl with a curly ponytail, both seeming to be in their 30s. They were washing their windows and an angry mob was around them. I got a very bad vibe about the ladies and suddenly the blonde lady said, "Let's wash it with pig's blood next." Sure enough, their windshield was covered in thick red chunks, and the crowd outside of us yelled and booed. Shortly after, "We did pigs blood. Now some cow's blood." and sure enough, there comes the red wiping fluid. I was calm, but on the inside I needed to escape. These ladies were fucking nuts. Eventually they began to drive through the crowd and had accepted me as one of them for some reason, so I conned them into

Jack woke up and fed his pet fish. He had a cot where he slept that was in a room near the cockpit of his shuttle. He walked out the door and into the main room. The central room where he walked now had a few rows of empty chairschairs for passengers during trips that involved up to 60 passengers. The room behind that held the cargo that the shuttle was now carrying, which included a variety of things: chemicals, monoclonal antibodies, ELISA kits, food rations, electronics, and also a box of dry ice containing cells that had been isolated and expanded from Billy's umbilical chord nearly twenty years ago.
The cells from that vial would be used by technicians at the hospital on RC35 to regenerate a pair of eyes for Billy. The entire process would take approximately a year. After all, the nerve fibers would need time to adjust to a surrogate microprocessor before being transplanted into Billy's head. &

Remember just one little thing.
There are places to go,
Where you have never been before.
How can you be sure those places are bad?
There are things to see,
Things you have never seen before.
How can you be sure those things are ugly?
There is a new tune to hear,
Something you've never heard before.
How can you be sure that tune is scary?
There are words to be said,
Things that have never been said before.
How can you be sure those words are hurtful?
There are dreams to be imagined,

Across its varied surface we love to roam,
Never stopping to admire the bounty,
Naively assuming there will always be plenty,
Too busy to notice the signs all around,
Of bountiful Nature - running aground.

While we search in vain for a technical solution,
In an effort to reverse our effects on the Earth,
Keep It Simple Stupid - for what it is worth.
The answers lie not in the amount that we spend,
Nor in fads or in spin or the latest damn trend!
Live in harmony with Nature - the only choice,
We all need to shout it. United. One voice!
For Nature provides us with all that we need,
To strip the Earth bare - is just rampant greed,
Leaving chaos and destruction, under-mining her bones,
In our insatiable search for bright, shining stones!
While deserts are spreading and the ice caps melt,
What will it take for these changes - here, to be felt?

Sergeant Major Avery Junior Johnson was undoubtedly the most badass soldier to live aside from the Master Chief Spartan 117.
Avery Johnson's behavior seems to be eccentric, often delivering outlandish speeches to boost the morale of those serving under him. However, as shown in Contact Harvest, when it came down to it, he was a no-nonsense NCO, who, although caring deeply for his troops, pushed them hard during training. He first came into our world back in 2001 with the release of HALO: Combat Evolved, where he delivered his most well known speeches.
"Men, we led those dumb bugs out to the middle of nowhere to keep 'em from getting their filthy claws on Earth. But, we stumbled onto something they're so hot for, that they're scrambling over each other to get it.
