On a planet with mountains erupting,
fire and sulfur, scenery so disrupting;
Two friends engage in a fight,
with awesome strength and intense might.
A pupil, thinking he was doing right,
in fear and pride, fell from the light,
to desperately try to save the life
of his one and only beloved wife.
And at that moment, the mentor appears
just as his pupil's chokehold on his own beloved disappears.
The mentor poses a challenge, a fiery duel,
but the pupil is empowered by an evil fuel.
Now, over flaming fiery fire,
it makes you want to inquire:
"How could a mentor and his pupil duel on another?"
Teacher against student, brother against brother.
Sailing on rivers of orange, yellow, and red,
an angry exchange of words between the two is said.
The mentor speaks of the nature of the light side,
while his pupil speaks of evil, jealousy, and pride.
Nearing the end of their contest, the mentor leaps,
and here's the moment where everyone weeps:
In arrogance and vanity, the pupil
Sol.Terra - Episode 1.1: Terra DayCal stepped into the doorway of his shuttle and raised a hand to shield his eyes. The light on Terra was so harsh, particularly this continent. He reached into his coat and pulled out the tinted glasses and the bio-scanner he carried. Slipping the glasses on, he checked the scanner screen to make sure he had landed in the right place. The readout confirmed it: Sol.Terra, Australia, Sydney. A small blip on the corner of the screen told him the Soschan he’d been sent to find wasn’t far away. Too violent for IU membership, many Soschans had taken to using their unique camouflage ability to emigrate Off-World illegally. This suited Cal just fine, as it gave him an excuse to travel there as well to pick them up.Sol.Terra - Episode 1.1: Terra Day2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Those that presume to take up the mantle of the dark side do so for trivial reasons. Some, consumed by their impotent rage at their own weakness, seek to shroud themselves in darkness to futilely mask their inferiority. Others simply seek an outlet for their frivolous hedonisms, abounding in debauchery simply to spite the sensibilities of other beings.
Those beings have no understanding of what it means to be Sith.
Those that do not understand will never be Sith.
To be Sith, in the very end, is to be fully autonomous in will and power. A Sith Lord and his ambitions are inextricable; it is what defines him, and what forms the central aspect of his identity. And identity is the source of a Sith's power. One's will and ambition is what defines him as a being, and in turn the fulfillmen

"Come on Master Skywalker, just one," another little voice said, its slightly higher pitch identifying it as female.
A small circle of students sat cross-legged around an elderly man in a comfortable-looking dark brown chair with soft cushions, obviously used for many years by the myriad dark stains and small tears across its surface. The figure sitting in it was the consummate grandfather: wrinkles covering his thin but soft face, his hair stark white but sparse, but heavy lids and wrinkles not concealing the brightness of life radiating from his eyes and smile.
Master Skywalker groaned as if greatly fatigued and leaned back in his chair. "I don't know... It's getting pretty late..."

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

An unnatural silence lay over the moors of Khanduras. The moon hung high in the night sky, but no dogs howled to it. A soft breeze brushed trees that were otherwise untouched by wild animals. Its said that animals can sense when a natural disaster is approaching; if thats true, then the same must hold for unnatural disasters as well, for they had all fled these plains. This was no longer a place for the beasts of nature; evil dwelt here now.
Through this wilderness, a single traveler walked. Covered in a heavy cloak to protect them from the elements, the only things not concealed beneath their shroud was a hand axe that hung from their belt and the faint sound of metal clanging together. Though surrounded by darkness, the traveler didnt seem afraid. Their perseverance was rewarded when a faint light poked through the trees and began to get brighter as the traveler drew closer to it. It was a campfire, and a large one at that.

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.

Luke Skywalker was having one of those days.
His vision was slightly blurred, but he was walking at a steady pace, not missing a single step in the form of march he had learned. It kept him ready for action without exhausting him too much, while giving him a fair amount of speed.
He could feel the force all around him, in the air, in the ground, beneath his feet. Everywhere. And he felt it so close to him so close almost as if he could reach out and grab it, hold it in his arms.
Luke carried on walking. It was some time in the afternoon, by the look of the sun. He looked closer. No, not the sun, the suns. There were two suns, one of them setting, the other one rising. Almost like Tatooine, Luke thought with a laugh.
Suddenly, he felt very strange. He was walking through the Tatooine desert. Luke thought hard, and suddenly he realized he couldn't remember where he was. Where he had been, was more like it.

To achieve a more just society, many structures of our government and economy must be radically transformed through greater economic and social democracy so that ordinary Americans can participate in the many decisions that affect our lives. Democracy and socialism go hand in hand. All over the world, wherever the idea of democracy has taken root, the vision of socialism has taken root as welleverywhere but in the United States. Because of this, many false ideas about socialism have developed in the US. With this pamphlet, we hope to answer some of your questions about socialism.

The wisdom you've spread throughout the Galaxy is heard
By a thousand clever senators, all green with jealousy-
For not a single one of them could easily surpass thee.
You're master of the Sith lords, your plans cannot be fathomed
You like to kill for pleasure, by your lightning victims are dazzled,
A handful of apprentices, their faces bright with glee, cry:
"Almighty one! Darth Sidious! We pledge ourselves to thee!"
Behind your calm and placid face, a cold mind calculates
Some would call you a two-faced scoundrel, doomed for an ugly fate
Though you are gone, your spirit lives on- you certainly left your mark,
Left innocents eternally scarred by your cruel and playful lark.
O what an awful wretched mess you made during your reign!
Like an unstoppable gloamglozer you were, fed and nourished by pain.
A more malevolent ruler the Galaxy has never seen-

In the world of Endvale there are Spirits known as “Kámpia”. These are incorporeal nature spirits who seek out human vessels within which to inhabit.
A Kámpia obtains a human shell by entering into a contract with said human. The nature spirit promises to fulfill one wish. This wish may be for power, beauty, wealth, or any earthly desire. As compensation, the person offers his or her body for the nature spirit to one day claim for itself. This completes the contract.
Once a person agrees to a contract with a Kámpia, he or she becomes a “Seed”
As a Seed a person will germinate for the time when his or her body will be reaped by the Kámpia. This germination takes the form of the person developing characteristics and traits that reflect the nature spirit that will one day inhabit it. This could mean the sprouting of wings, the growing of a tail, the development of scales, horns, or feathers..
