Duality: Anakin and Obi-WanI. First ImpressionDuality: Anakin and Obi-Wan6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
When he hears Obi-Wan call Qui-Gon Master, it is as if the ship has lurched beneath him; he has been terribly nowhat slaver would go through such an elaborate ruse to capture one boy, even a top racer? And he can sense the rightness, as surely as if he were beholding the wonders of the Jedi Temple already. (He is not sure what those wonders are, as mostly when he imagined Jedi they were flying or fighting, but right now the air seems as imbued with promise as with oxygen.)
So he assesses Obi-Wan again, and sees a man younger, less scarred, than Qui-Gons example had lead him to imagine Jedi to be; were he raised in Mos Espa, Anakin thought, Obi-Wan would be...what? A gambler, a farmer, a vagrant? He does not seem to fit any of those molds. On Tatooine, anyone with such...such a shy sort of politeness, paired with the authority and skill shown by the fact he carried a lightsaber, would be left alone.
Obi-Wan was waiting when Anak

Mandalorian Quotes (Full Collection)SUBJECT: Honor/StrengthMandalorian Quotes (Full Collection)5 months ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
“We live in a society too focused on physical strength, on sculpted muscles and athletic skill. Those are helpful, yes. A necessity to any warrior. But the true secret of power isn't strength but resilience. How much a warrior can take before falling. For you can shoot as many rounds as you want and still drop when you take a single one. But the ability to take rounds as well as send them is what separates the cannon fodder from true warriors.” – Alic Dzadz, celebrated Mandalorian strategist.
“The greatest warriors are the product of their defeats as much as their victories. Like the strongest of iron, their imperfections are hammered, their weaknesses pierced and battered, until they are forged into an indestructible force capable of standing

Hanabi followed after her Master hurriedly, catching up to him as he walked briskly through the halls of the Imperial Palace.
“You made her mad again.” she stated worriedly.
The Grand Inquisitor said nothing as she followed after him and so she pressed further.
“You could try being gentler.”
“Why?” he asked somberly. “It won't do her any good.”
“But it will at least show that you care!” protested Hanabi as they continued. “She thinks you've completely abandoned who you used to be!”
The Grand Inquisitor snorted in apparent amusement. “Oh? And who are you referring to?”
“Kahan.” she stated candidly.
He froze in mid-stride, coming to a stop. Hanabi stopped as well, feeling her heart race as he turned to look at her, his blue gaze boring into her silvery eyes.
“What have I told you about using that name?”
“It's who you are!” Hanabi said defiantly.
“No, it's who I wa

This is awkward.
Its only for a couple of days, Carth.
Its still awkward.
Lire Dakaar sighed and lobbed a pillow at Carth, catching him squarely in the chest with it. He made a faint oof sound before glaring at her, tossing the pillow onto the bunk behind him. Tumbling into it, he squeezed his side up against the wall and folded his hands behind his head. Lire just rolled her eyes and ignored him, tugging off her boots. She only glanced at him once before taking a seat on the edge of the bunk, setting her boots off to the side and wiggling her toes in their sock-covered freedom.
You know Gadon only had one spare bunk, she said finally, her back still to Carth as she looked around the darkened barracks.
SuicideI woke up scared to a world was greySuicide4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
From underneath my door
My blood was crawling away
And laughters I heard so long ago
Came back tonight said don't let go
There is still hope that lies ahead
-who are you talking to son?
-no one it's all in my head
I'll shed the last tear and I'll go to bed
I'll have one last hug before I'm dead
She covered me and sang the last lullaby
I made believe that I won't cry
She said goodnight
I said goodbye
But will the pain end up tonight
And can their darkness beat my light
Innocence burning in my heart
Questions burning in my mind
Is it strength to face the reaper?
Or is it strength to suicide?

Who I WasI still dream of the daysWho I Was4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
That will never be the same;
Going through these ups and downs
Have kept me from running rounds.
I used to be someone else
The one who cared for himself,
But now i see that I have grown,
Losing colors that I have shown.
I show new ones all the time,
And it's hard to stay in line.
Trying to do what is right
Just becomes a greater fight.
I won't be someone I'm not,
If I try, I just forgot.
There will be a change in you,
For me that's hard to get through;
But when it happens to me,
It's not as easy to see.
I learn to accept these things
For I hear life always sings
A tune that will never change,
So changes will be my gauge.
If I change, I'm doing good,
And living life as I should.

Hold up your hand.
Straighten it and make a fist. That arm is a solid structure, a column of cells, a staff.
It's simply a cylinder, and that is all.
(Open mindedness is not a force.)
Go up to a trashcan, place your hands on its side, and shove as hard as you can.
Try it. Watch the trashcan fly, its lid clanging open and its guts spilling over the pavement.
You did that. Notice the veins bulging from your arms.
Do you feel at peace?

These I know to be true: the sky is blue, blood is red, and the Earth is round.

Now go outside.

Star Wars: On The HuntMaya Jeda stepped over a gnarled green vine and eased into the jungle. The plains of Shili ended abruptly, fields of waving turu-grass cut off by thick-boled trees. Where the occasional birdcall had sounded out there, the riot of sounds stopped as soon as Maya moved further into the jungle.Star Wars: On The Hunt4 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
The trees were widely spaced but surrounded by whole ecosystems of undergrowth. Even as she tried to step around the larger bushes and flowers, she heard animals start up again in the distance. There were dangerous creatures on this world; the native Togruta people were fanged and strong. Some groups still hunted akuls in a rite of passage to prove that even their children could survive when the wild inevitably bullrushed its way into civilization. Maya was glad to have her two lightsabers hanging at her hips, even if she didn't like the idea of fighting animals.
Those dangerous animals were the whole reason she was here. She had been hired to retrieve the urgluk bezoar, a hunk of nutrien

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.
Despite the fact that her fur was dyed in a manne

She passed a hand over her head (she thought that the hand should be shaking, but it was not, and there was more subtle fear in that then in what had produced the shaking at the start), and felt cool air where the curved tops of her soft horns should have been. A rounded plate covered her head where parts of her mind still told her the base of her montrals were. It emitted a warmth that felt to her palm like that of a datapad which has been running too long, a bright electric burn entirely unlike the unmistakable, softer glow of body heat.
She could remember battling Grievous, could remember when the viewport in his starships hallway cracked, although she did not know who had broken it. Then--she was thrown aside into freezing space th
He Built ThreepioHe Built Threepio3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The saga starts out like this,
Sweet kid who looks barely six.
He's a slave like his mom.
Then his life went off like a bomb.
He's sold to Watto then,
Working hard time and again.
He built Threepio,
His talents started to show.
A ship from Naboo,
Landed with a queen in its crew.
With Jedi and guards,
The hyperdrive blasted to shards.
Ani and Padmé meet,
Ani talks really sweet.
She goes on her way,
But that's not the last say.
Ani races his pod,
Others end with a plod.
He wins the race and he's glad.
Watto's bets were real bad
Ani says goodbye to his mom,
A Jedi he will become.
The parts have been gained,
But a Sith shows some disdain
To the capital they go,
Where the queen tries to show,
Her planet in need,
But she don't succeed.
Anakin and Qui-Gon,
With Padawan Obi-Wan.
Face the council who say,
No training for Ani no way.
Off to Naboo,
Say to Qui-Gon adieu.
He dies while Obi survives
Will train Ani who cries.
Now a padawan,
Something Yoda agrees on.
A smile from the queen,

A Soldier's Call To DutyEvery day they face the battle cryA Soldier's Call To Duty4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
To fight for the land they treasure so dear
Their loyalty is so great
Their courage is so strong
Not all will travel down this road
One that involves dignity, bravery, and strength
Some will answer and come out strong
Others will answer, but not come out alive
This is the sacrifice that they must make
Knowing that their lives are at stake
But to those that have been called to duty
They will answer and serve with their very best
Not fearing for their lives
But fighting with the strength of a thousand tigers
Willing to lay down their lives
To keep our nation free
We honor and thank all of our service men
For their nobility to stand through it all
A task that is not to be taken lightly
That involves their heart, soul, mind and strength
To be focused and alert
Doing the tasks they have been given
And to serve our nation with the utmost respect
That it has come to deserve
Two Witches“Fucking Francis! I hate Francis! And is goddamn vest!” Zoey crawled forward, her knees dirty and swollen from hours of sneaking around. It had sounded like a good idea at the time. Dress up as witch, sneak into the bio lab where a possible cure for whatever the hell had turned the world into a crawling pieces of crap. Then Francis had come up with the lovely idea of the costume. Sure, it looked like what a witch wore. Its just she didn’t WANT to spend 5 hours crawling around on the floor like a spastic in something that could only charitably be called “Revealing”. Still, she’d made it this far. Suddenly, Zoey’s hand, slippery from hours of sweating it out, dropped the flashlight. It clattered on the floor in the suddenly very silent room. A couple of infected turn to look at her, and Zoey froze, trying not to look up. Then, she quickly slid into the witch’s normal pose, brawling her eyes out for the satisfied Infected.

Redemption RoadRedemption road oh where does it go?Redemption Road5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Through miles of pain and suffering I know.
It twists and twines like a serpent's spine
It slithers through the caverns of your mind.
Your heart breaks as your body shakes
The haunting sound of laughter quakes.
Be forewarned you've only just begun
To fall like the night or rise like the sun.
The going is slow as you all may know.
The corruption is vast but does not show.
The ordeals are many among the task at hand
You fall from the wicked you couldn't withstand.
The darkness consumes and seeps its way in
It misconstrues your views and you begin to sin.
Jaded and tainted you feel no remorse
Controlled by madness you take no discourse.
The dawn breaks and illuminates the skies
It cleanses the shadows which once clouded your eyes.
The nearby cathedral bells hearken in your ear
Almost as if the rapture was here.
Your newfound strength guides you along the path
Focused and determined to smite a demons wrath.
All of the sudden a distant object grows near

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. With himself, for worrying over how she was taking it.
He had assumed she was ok with everything. Well, as ok as someone can be when they find that someone they've been travelling with is a murderer. But he couldn't be sure. She was just so hard to read! She never seemed to let her emotions show. Oh, she was definitely capable of empathy and compassion. But she did all her good deeds lik
