Roxanna looked out over the streets, watching all the little people scurry by. She was just high enough to see over a few roofs. That was hardly enough for her. She wished they were kept up at the top of the Acropolis, so that she might look down upon all of Athens and watch it squirm. Dionysus and his followers weren't deserving of such status in the wise city. No, that belonged only to Athena and the "good" gods. Instead, they were left to scrape away at the sides of the hill with the various other stadiums and theaters and minor temples. Even this great white city of learning owed it all to them, though. The maenad sulked, having ruined her good mood with geography yet again.
Even as she pouted down at the Athenian morning, no one would have argued that Roxanna was a sight to behold. It's not every day that one might catch a glimpse of a maenad peering out from the columns of the Temple of Dionysus during the morning commute. Her sleepy yellow eyes glittered like a cat's, but the fi

Maybe their claims had some basis in truth. Maybe their fear was justified.
She had watched him kill men with his bare hands, his sharp claws rending flesh, dripping blood just like the teeth that lay concealed beneath the skull-mask, those yellowed fangs stained crimson and dripping fat globs of gore like venom, bared, open, snarling, in a vicious roar, the strength in his attack and the power behind it, those awful yellow eyes glowing with bloodlust.
But those same eyes looked at her tenderly when she spoke to him, and she never saw anything but love in those eyes. Those claws than killed men and women and even children, that had held lightsabers and guns and all manner of weapons, or no weapons at all, could caress her face and touch her lips without leaving so much as a scratch. And that concealed face, so horrible, so ragged and ghastly that it could destroy a grown man's sanity in one stro

I didn't know Cindy.
That was apparently the name of the girl that the chalk outline outside the library belonged to, though. All I knew about her was that she was a freshman. A few questions aimed at some of her classmates let me know that she was a quiet asian girl─kept mostly to herself. She was new, a fresh transfer from a public school, actually. Why anyone like her would want to go to public school─ever─I have no idea. Life's hard enough already, no reason to make it harder on yourself when you've got dog ears and a tail. Golden retriever, specifically. I can't say I've seen that one before.
There are a lot of ways one could leave behind a bloody corpse here at Strange Academy, believe me, but for a new girl that didn't really seem to hang out with anyone at all, it was a bit odd. No one else really seemed to have an answer either. I tried to pick up what I could, but by the time home room rolled around, I still had nothing.

As she hurried through the preflight checks Ahsoka couldn't help but feel a little excited. She'd spent the last few days either stuck in her cabin or stalking the halls of the Resolute and it'd be good to get out flying again, even on such a simple assignment. With the engines roaring beneath her the young padawan cleared the launch bay and darted out into the asteroid belt.
Climbing high she quickly flipped her fighter over, bringing it in a close sweep along the length of the Resolute before turning away at the last moment to avoid the startled crew watching from the bridge. "Obviously a manoeuvre Anakin taught her." Admiral Yularen muttered to himself in disapproval as he watched the small, agile craft move out between the giant rocks.
"Ahsoka to Resolute, I'm beginning my survey run now." With a flick of a switch the padawan altered her scanner scope from navigational to geological readings, quickly narrowing the band to focus on the hfredium which the Resolut

They all thought I was doing my make-up, but they’re going to be surprised. I look in the mirror and grin. My reddish-brown hair now looked even more awesome, with pink bangs.

I always look back on how Lou and I met. It never left my mind. One day, I was feeding our son, Lucas, and Louie went to me asking, “Do you remember when we met?”
“Of course silly! How could I forget!” I reply laughing.
“Really?” My friend, Anastasia cried when I started chasing a duck into a pond.

Ahsoka Tano felt depressed as she sat alone in the Republic military prison awaiting her trial. She knew that somebody was setting her up, but nobody believed her and she had failed to prove it in the lower levels of Coruscant. She was feeling alone and completely abandoned, especially since she’d just been banished by the Jedi Order earlier that day. She simply couldn’t understand it, if anyone would know she was innocent, it would be the members of the Jedi Council. At least her master Anakin Skywalker still seemed to have faith in her, he was one of her only allies at that moment. Her mind was clouded with sad thoughts and visions of the dark side. The one thought she could see even partially clear was that of Ventress betraying her.
This has to be her work, Ahsoka fumed. This whole plot has her grimy finger prints all over it.

Imagine this; a citadel built against a mountain, a great semicircular wall surrounding it and a large city. Outside the magisterial gates thought to be impenetrable is a wide, barren plain of orange soil that spreads all the way to a number of formerly splendid towers and one or two hastily built ones silhouetted against the evening lavender clouds. Beyond them is a river, and to the left and right of the city are two seemingly unending forests. I know what you're thinking; Minas Tirith, right? Well imagine that the Citadel is not quite on the mountain as such, more the base of it meets with the base of the mountain, and the wall itself is what actually touches the mountain's face. Also, imagine the river not so much as a wide enough thing for a fleet of pirates to pose a formidable invasion, rather the sort of river one might sail a few fishing boats down, and wouldn't

Ahsoka has been acting strange, she has been emotionless since Obi-wan had died ..I won't even talk about that right now. The night he died, she cried so hard, Obi-wan and her were close, like he was an uncle to her, and she had held him in her arms when he died. She was still crying when we got back to the Temple, and she ran away from me when I tried to comfort her. The next morning, I heard her sobbing in her room, I opened it, and saw her, curled up in a ball on the floor, tears leaking out of her eyes, she looked at me and whispered "Skyguy." She sounded so weak, I quickly wrapped my arms around her and she sobbed into my tunic. She kept whispering "What's wrong with me?" I never answered her, I knew I had to keep my emotions in, crying myself wouldn't help her, so I just held onto her tighter.
Ever since that day, she had been more and more emotionless, a few days ago, she accidentally stubbed her toe on the couch, she said nothing, and kept walkin

A friendship that had been found
Now lost to this cruel world
Sleep now my dear friend
This may be goodbye but it isn’t the end
I’ll never forget you no matter what these dark whispers say
The light that dawned, it is gone, my day
You were my ray of light through this dark place
My hand wipes tears left behind on your pale face
Were you in that much pain, I caused you so much pain
In the end I have nothing left to gain
Why did you trade your rose why did you hand it over, why please tell me
Was that promise that you made, a lie, could it be?
You sleep so still
I’m loosing all my will.
Sleep within the Abyss
Don’t ask me how
I know you are dead
I know you aren’t just sleeping
Your life in my heart I’ll be keeping
You may be gone from my life
Though I’ll never forget our struggles and our strife
Here I go now, popping the lemon candy into my mouth sweet memories cradle me

“Ow.” she muttered, rubbing her butt. “Jango? Jango can you hear me?”
Her comlink gave her nothing but static and she cursed as she removed her helmet. Just her luck. Reaching down, she pulled out a glowstick and began examining the cave. Aside from the crystals there was nothing of interest—wait—she jerked the light around and froze as a face peered at her from out of the gloom. Her face.

It’s hard to remember my life before this one, my life as a mortal. It seems like a distant dream, which fades away when I open my eyes, leaving bits and pieces as a sign of its existence in my thoughts. What I can retrace from those bits paints a life of a lonely child, always lurking in other people’s shadows, or rather the shadows covering her figure, hiding her despair and driving her to solitude, painful solitude. You can leave the solitude behind but the lonesome silence follows you.

Watching the old one burn
And fade away.

Take away the fear I'm tied up with.

I stepped out of the temple, blinking from the bright sunlight. Kishan put his hand on my shoulder as we walked out into the colorful Indian marketplace. Mr. Kadam and Ren were talking fast in Hindi about what we would need for our next trip. I thought about what Durga told me. "You must find the daughter of Saraswati. She is the only one who can help you break the curse and bring happiness to one of your tigers." What did she mean? That whichever brother I didn't get together with, would fall in love with her? I was so confused, questions were rolling around in my head. Kishan lifted his head and cocked it, like he would do when he was a tiger to listen to something.
