Star Wars - The Weak Will Perish
The tremor that passed through Darth Sear's vessel told him that he had landed on the planets surface. He was excited. Despite the fierce battle being fought over head, he had felt the Jedi break off from the republic fleet and make his way down here. What was so important, that the republic would allow such a powerful asset to abandon them mid battle? The Sith lord wanted to find out. Mostly, he wanted to test himself against the so called might of the Jedi. He had only ever encountered the Jedi once before. A Padawan. His master had slain him with ease. Now it would be his turn. The exit ramp slowly began its descent, revealing the grey sandy surface of the planet. Darth Sear walked out into a sand storm. This was of little consequence to the Sith, considering his cybernetic eyes. He scanned his surroundings, the darkening sky lit up with the fire of battle, his dark robes violently fluttering in the wind. He f

Just relax and take deep breaths,
Count to ten and take it easy.
Death is due,
And the truth can come out.
We're both dead so no secrets now.
Yes he loves me,
And I love him too.
No point in denying
When my mind screams it's true.
So I lower my barriers and speak out.
I love you Ani and that's the truth.

"So, it has finally come to this," a harsh, dusty sounding voice said. The speaker, a bluish shimmering image of a human male of a venerable age, hovered motionless over the holocron projector that held the essence of what was left of him. His form was the only light here, casting a bluish glow before him that was not restricted by any corners of darkness in the circular room. "It is time the three of you begin your last quest as padawans, and take your first step in becoming full fledged Jedi Knights." He looked at each of the three figures kneeling in front of him, "I can't say you were the best of pupils...in fact, you were among the ones I had deemed as incompetent," he paused, "but, the masters have voted, and you now have a final chance to change my opinion. Go. Construct your own lightsabers. Use what you have learned, and be mindful of your surroundings.
STAR WARS: Trials of Knighthood CH2The Dusty Gizka dropped out of hyperspace, and already Bit was feeling anxious. The large, gray-green orb looming ahead of them was none other than Nal Hutta; the homeworld of the Hutts, and political head of any and all under-the-table dealings. Off to the right, however, was their current goal. Nar Shadda, the moon of the Hutt homeworld, was generously called "Little Coruscant" by some beings, and "that wretched hive" by others. While only those close to the Hutts were allowed to go to the planet proper, all other kinds of racketeering and debauchery took place on the moon.STAR WARS: Trials of Knighthood CH28 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"This is where we'll find parts for lightsabers?" Coram asked incredulously. "The Hutts are gangsters. They'd just as soon sell us as Jedi target practice than help us on our quest."
Bit watched out of the corner of his photoreceptor as Coram fidgeted, and began his descent towards the moon, "It's just as Master Vrash said. All the best finds are outside of the republic's jurisdiction, and this planet is basically
Handmaidens And MakeupHandmaidens And Makeup5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
This world of politics,
Of makeup and handmaidens,
No one knows the truth within.
No one sees Padmé smile,
No one sees the pillow fights,
The girls nights in,
Nor the groans and moans of queen preparation.
To the crowds we are silent,
Dressed in our best to protect,
How many girls dream of wearing the flames?
I wear them proud,
But underneath the handmaiden title,
We see the wild girl the Queen really is.
We have a good laugh,
We enjoy a good joke.
But on with the makeup,
The hairdo precise,
The robes carefully chosen,
And on with our flames.

The lone star in the sky.

When you need aid, cry my name.
When darkness threatens all, seek me out.
I am the Sword of the Jedi.
I will come.

Sakura had returned home to Konoha at around midnight with Kakashi. The streets had been dark and empty, but that was to be expected at so late a time. She had thought about going to Sasukes house, but during the mission, Sakura had been injured and had been sending chakra through her knee the whole way home and she was ready to collapse in exhausted.
The moment she stepped through the door, she dropped her bag down on the couch, wrote the mission report, and went to bed, not even bothering to change out of her ninja clothes or heal her wound.
When Sakura woke in the morning, her body was aching from head-to-toe, but her knee was throbbing more painfully than anything else. Quickly, she pushed back the covers on her bed and saw her knee wasnt discolored, but it definitely was swollen. Sakura carefully touched her injury and flinched slightly in pain when a shock went through her leg. Car

Okay, forget everything I said, I regret everything.
It started off in the morning when Len woke me up instead of Rin. She apparently left early for some reason. And on the walk to school, we only ran into Luka. As we walked to school while making small talk, my suspicion grew.
Once we walked onto school grounds, a chorus of all kinds of noises erupted. There were cheers, wolf whistles, and what sounded like screams of pain or despair, I don't know which. Len and I looked around in confusion and I noticed Luka had gone missing. It wasn't until one of Len's friends handed him something did we understand.
It was the picture Rin had taken! Looking around the school grounds, I noticed copies of it were scattered everywhere. This must've been the reason why Rin had left so early, to make sure a copy was in every nook and cranny of the school.
So her we are, in the present, sitting in the classroom, while everyone around us talks about us like we're deaf. From the small fragments of peoples'

Biting her lip thoughtfully, she quickly wrapped a couple of scones in a napkin and shoved them in her purse. Those will go great with my curry tonight. She stiffened hearing the door to the coffee house open, shoving her purse back among the freshly cleaned cups and saucers. Please, oh please don’t be Miss Rangiku! The last thing Orihime needed was another write up at work for sneaking food home again. Her boss had already told her twice about the consequences of such. They didn’t sound particularly pleasing.
She turned quickly to see who had ventured in just moments from closing time. Oh, it was him. The same guy that had come in

Silent footsteps echoed soundlessly through the halls. Lit torches that framed the walls were the only source of light as they flickered back and forth, searching for oxygen in any direction to keep living, as a quiet figure made her way down the corridor.
She was the only female Akatsuki member: Konan. Her dark and superior aura gave her away, plus the white origami flower and lip ring were also helpful suggestions of who she was. But though she remained emotionless, she changed when battle arose. She was much like the flames decorating the halls: fierce, captivating, and dangerous.
A quiet and sharp intake of breath was the only sound heard for a moment as Konans cloak rubbed against the bone-deep cut on her right shoulder. She tried to calm her body into ignoring the pain on her right side, but so far her forced breathing wasnt helping much. An unexpected

This story starts of two years before SW:ROTS and it is going to be mostly about Galen/Starkiller and Ahsoka Tano. This story is an adventure/romance, just so you knave.
In the atmosphere of the junkyard planet Raxus prime, was the venator star destroyer, The Resolute exiting hyperspace to check rumors of separatist activity in the area. As Jedi knight Anakin Skywalker and his Togrutan padawan, Ahsoka Tano were sparing with each other in the in the hangar bay. The Republic was unknowing that they were expected,

Anakin blocked a hand full of blows with ease, as he just waited for his padawan to become tired and lose her defense. It didn't took long until he saw an opening as Ahsoka's left foot slightly lost its stance, when she made a quick slash at his head. Anakin took the chance and began a brutal wave of slashes, as Ahsoka barely could block every strike. Ahsok

Why not IchiHime?
There's a lot of reasons why I just can't ship IchiHime, in spite of Orihime's obvious "love" for Ichigo.
***The BIGGEST reason I doubt IchiHime will ever happen is because Kubo himself seems too chickenshit to have Ichigo get together with ANYONE. He doesn't want to piss anyone off by having Ichigo choose between Orihime and Rukia, even though if he had to, I'm certain he would choose Rukia because their bond is so much deeper than his bond with Orihime.***
Chances are, if it EVER comes up, Kubo will do like the writers of Macross Frontier did with Alto by having Ichigo say something stupid like "You're both my wings" and have both girls be totally okay with that for some reason. And then have a movie where Alto gets toge

Your face is that of evil.
A mind so lost and gone.
And somewhere in your subconscious,
Lies the one who you replaced.
Your evil shadow you never fought.
Not in his height of power.
Where he was the apprentice,
And you were just an innocent child.
But time moves on,
And deep in the force,
Lies his presence in anger and hate.
Glaring at you in your shadows.
Darth Maul's rage goes on.

In this life I'm a woman,
But I'm not yet a woman.
I'm a girl.
Just a girl,
But also a queen with a duty.
My life dictated by the situation,
A childhood gone long sacrificed.
For a life of politics,
Of providing a leader.
There is no mother or family.
I am Queen Amidala.
Not yet a woman,
No longer a child.
But one day this will end,
And I'll be a woman at last.

Bullets whizzed by and pinged off of the many armored armor vehicles rolling down the damaged roads and the sound of mortars shrieked above him. But he was already used to it.

But it's too far away,
All I can see is darkness,
All I can feel is numb,
Just the intake of breath is difficult,
And with each step I get nowhere,
I’m lost within the darkness of my soul,
Where are you when I need you most,
I hear you,
But with each word you’re farther away,
Don’t leave me here,
I can’t do this on my own,
I’m fading away slowly,
Please save me,
Soon everything I am will be gone.
The Forward MovementThe Forward Movement2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Tragedy, abrupt to my very soul,
that left me far from whole.
The withered memory born unto my dreams again,
refreshed and once more binding me by chain.
The reopening scars I once upon a time, thought healed,
gape wide to open for the flood gates, red and revealed.
My witnessing eyes bleed out old tears from a rusted well,
Attempting again to put back out the fires of this age old Hell.
The rising waters find my feet and climb,
the two floods meet, where their cause is rhymed.
My heart from which the blood and tears flow,
now at where the pain does ever grow.
Close these outpouring wounds, build back up the walls...
Make for my feet, the forward movement from where my future calls.
Once again I will shed my skin,
leaving behind the marks of where I've been.
