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.

Well go round again,

The slight buzz of chatter that filled the room ended abruptly. The time for being official has begun.

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

And speak in our absurdly loud voices, of things that could exist

We'll cry together
Our sobs twirling up into the air and away from us
Our tears forming salty rivers
I'll do anything
To help you feel alive again
Eulogy for Sergeant AJ JohnsonEulogy for Sergeant AJ Johnson4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
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. Now I don't care if it's God's own anti-son-of-a-bitch machine or a giant hula-hoop; We're not gonna let them have it!

My fantasy of years
My rose with no thorns
The safety to all my fears
You simply amaze me
Our souls akin
Your soothing heartbeat
And your pale skin
Your kindness and sweetness
Define the beautiful person that you really are
And one day I just came across you
I didn't have to go too far
You sit beside me
And you make it seem like the sky is blue
Because it's always dark outside
When I'm without you
You are the princess
And I'm your prince
And you kindly reward me
With infinite bliss
You're a diamond in the rough
A delicate beauty
You're the sunshine of my life
And loving you is my duty
You are my precious sweetheart
You are one of a kind
You are the song I hear the most
You are the one I was meant to find
And I'll tell you this
From the bottom of my heart,
My soul's delight,
My work of art
I'll always say it
For the rest of my life
Everyone will listen
Everything will glisten
When I gaze into your eyes
And say "I love you"
Then I kiss you and then I say

Or are able to even see
Just how grateful I am for you
And how much you mean to me.
I would like to take this time
To thank you for being there
Whenever I was feeling down
And needed someone who cared.
You've given me much more
Than I deserve from you
And I would like to thank you
For everything you do.
I still don't understand
Why you care so much for me
When all I do is burden you
With my depression and anxiety.
All I really know,
Is that God must have sent you
To be my friend and love me
Since I feel my friends are few.
So please don't ever leave me,
Like others have done in the past,
I really want our friendship,
To be one that will last.
You are the most amazing person
I have ever met
And I just want you to know
That I'm forever in your debt.
And if you ever need someone
To help or comfort you,
Just be sure to remember
That I'm here for you, too.
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.

Does an Artist Have to Play the Popularity Game?You, as an artist, might think that exposure follows artistic success. But now I believe that artistic success follow exposure. Here is a short story illustrating this fickle process:Does an Artist Have to Play the Popularity Game?2 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Daviantart Michael creates art that borders on genius. After a while Michael comes down from his artistic "in the zone" mania (he loves the feeling, feels like he's high) and collapses asleep onto a pink sofa. Next morning (if ten o'clock is morning) he sips espresso and checks his inbox: 2, maybe 3 favs.
The caffeine hits Michael's bloodstream just as the disappointing realization sags over his head like a storm cloud. Why don't they see what I did here! Can't they see how this is really something?
Michael thinks about this the whole day. Then he realizes that success precedes exposure so he adds over 9000 groups to all his submissions and now receives a continuous flush of favs and comments as reliable as OLD FAITHFUL GEYSER, YELLOWSTONE PARK 82190, WY.

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.
Sacred MedicineI peered through the mystic portal once more.Sacred Medicine2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Infinity's intelligence I longed to explore, my heart & mind in need of restore.
This potion procured by most unusual means
Gave rise to scenes of unspeakable things.
Access was granted to realms normally unseen.
It began as an avalanche of confusion.
Could all I have known really be an illusion?
After a scan all negativity was expelled.
Apparatus fell from the hand which had held.
Into the depths of space my psyche was propelled.
At first was a vast void alone in the dark.
Then suddenly from my thought formed a spark,
Which multiplied to fill the edge of existence,
Each following the path of least resistance.
Detached from my usual material worries, playfully flying about in flurries.
Iridescent strands of DNA dancing, every quality of the journey continues enhancing.
Eerie tones & strange melodious sounds were heard by us all in the night air around.
Symbols communicating directly, unspoken wisdom projecting perfectly.

A city where Euclidian geometries stop.
A curve a, a loop, a swirly doo,

The star-spawn caper and chortle with glee
As the stars 'are right' at apogee
Father Dagon plays on his flute,
Retaining sanity; the point is moot.
Old Yog-Sothoth is bored and wasting time,
As feelers emerge from dimension one-seventy-nine.
The race of Yith is studying you,
All your knowledge they wish to accrue.
Far more pleasant than a deep one breeding pool.
The Fungi of Yuggoth are from afar
They'd like to borrow your brain in a jar.
The Elder Things shuffle along,
While Shoggoths whistle to their song.
And Pickman paints ghoulish throngs
Brown Jenkins twitters with glee,

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

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.

Its the small things around me
The little moments, of peace
The smile as we come to know the world;
Dead and cruel
The path we choose
So care free, nothing to loose
One step at a time
Obstacles mean nothing, all is left in sublime
Innocent born into sin
Almost like a test
To see who'll win
Like baby birds from the nest

Too young, with much experience
So naive to the absurd

I see this light but this is no ordinary light
It shines brighter then any other light
It carries me away and drives me forward
silently telling me a story like no other
Of a secret place of hopes and dreams
that are so hard to reach but found in the hearts
Of lovers to many are afraid or still searching
And a lot are broken in the eyes of others
But I still will take flight and put up a fight
Is what I think to myself tonight
To realize the light reflicts within us all
but they all ignore it
and I for one have made my choice
to ignite what I have found
and keep this story going
cause I believe within in this light
that I somehow found deep inside.
