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.

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.

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

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

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

"Ever brash, ever disrespectful!" Vrook roared. "This is what we have pinned our hopes on?"
Carth Onasi had to suppress a chuckle as the aged Jedi went off on another tirade. Despite all his ranting, Jen remained unfazed, hands on her hips, looking almost amused herself. Carth couldn't even remember what she'd said this time only that it had been another of her classic cheeky remarks that did a fantastic job of making the other party look foolish. And then she could stand there with that smug look on her face, listening to Vrook shout and letting it roll off her like water off a duck. Typical smuggler behavior.
"Peace, Vrook," Vandar hissed. "We have discussed this. There is no other choice."
That did an adequate job of calming the old man, and after heaving a deep sigh he continued to brief the little group on their mission to uncover the Star Forge. Carth was listening for the most part, though he was focused on Jen more than anything else. Jenzi Borin he'd known
I'm Anti FeministI’m antifeminist.I'm Anti Feminist9 months ago in Emotional More Like This
No, not because I’m a “woman hater” or in terrible self-denial, but because I’ve seen feminism, through actions and spoken word.
I’ve seen how the word ‘feminist’, or ‘feminism’, causes many to turn away in disgusts or to roll their eyes in a ‘here we go again’ manner.
I’ve seen the hypocrisy.
“We are not man haters.” Yet you slander the title of every man who dare rises against you, even with by hard work, he’s earned his position. You verbally assault, then play society’s victim, it’s getting old.
“We want equality.” Really, or do you want to be on top, do you want to rule the world? The word equality, is derived from the word ‘equal’. How can you scream for equality when you don’t even know how to be equal yourselves?

She betrayed me. After everything... I killed the Keeper for her, for crying out loud! And she still didn't trust me. And now... She's asking me to end her life.

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.

He lay there for a few minutes. Hiccup couldn't move too much; the pain in his head made sure of that. So he opened his eyes to look around. The sky was overcast, and he was able to make out a bright spot in the sky straight ahead. Hiccup assumed it must be about midday. How long have I been out?

Dark Side Ahsoka: InitiationThe truth has taken a great toll on Ahsoka Tano. When the great war began, she thought she was trying to keep the peace. But as she looked beyond the war, she saw that even the good are corrupted. Senators of the Republic became greedy for money and power, including her friend, Padme Amidala. She wanted the Jedi to bring justice, but they did nothing. She began to question both sides of the war. While on a mission to Dathomir, she came in contact with Talzin, the leader of the Nightsisters. At first, Ahsoka thought she was evil, until Talzin understood the pain Ahsoka witnessed with the Rpublic. Talzin explained to her that both the Sith and Jedi are corrupted and must be dealt with severe punishment. Talzin gave her a choice to cleanse the people infected by the plague of corruption or continue to fight a war that should have never been fought.

Fiora's orders were simple: Find and kill. Discreetly, if possible; no need for a fuss. The Target was somewhere in this district of Roma, nearby. She knew nothing more than the fact he'd be somewhat lavishly dressed and in a hood. That was all the information she'd need. She's never had trouble identifing any targets before. They all had the same gait, the same malice in their eyes to certain people in the crowd.
Fiora sighed as she rose from the bench she had been resting on. It was dusk, and he'd be out here soon. They all always come out at night, when no one can see. She started off towards the now closing shops, her split dress and long chesnut hair flowing behind her. She scanned the dispersing groups of civilians. No one that fit the criteria.

Essay on social evolution
A tradition is nothing more than a successful progress.
"Maurice Druon Le Pouvoir"
We all know our clannish organisation rests on a strong traditionalist influence and it is felt even on the core basis of our mere existences. The importance Tradition has, both in our clan but also in Kindred society, defined most often our personal position on both mortal and immortal societies' immense board.
This Tradition has had, for centuries, reassuring and safety virtues, creating a very clear yoke to position ourselves on. But mortal society, also shaped by its own traditions, has evolved in a spectacular way during the last few decades. It is our duty, as individuals but also as a social corpus, to follow this movement, to evolve as well and keep our privilege seat in this society which shelters us.
