Back to Camp for Captain RexIt was early morning and the sky was an aray of colors from the bright peach colors of orange to the even brighter colors of yellow from the rising sun. Rex sat atop the horse-like creature as it slowly made its way to where General Kenobi had called from.Back to Camp for Captain Rex5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
All of a sudden, the creature stopped;dead in its tracks. Rex grumbled irritably.
"Come on you stupid...GRR!! Whatever you are; don't give me a hard time!", Rex barked in frustration. He pulled on the reins with all the strength he had, but the creature wouldn't budge. His impatience overwhelmed him.
"I'll go on foot then!", he said to the creature who responded by looking at him blankly.
He quickly removed his gear, put on his helmet and started to walk. His thoughts swiftly drifted back to Cut. Rex smiled to himself thinking of what a good father he was to his kind children. He certainly still had the fight in him from all the training when he was a trooper. The encounter they had with the Commando Driods had proven to Rex that Cut

He was curious about the scars.
Corso had spent enough time with Silver and other smugglers, scoundrels, and mercenaries that he knew the rules that came with the life. He knew you let the past stay the past and didn't dig up what someone else wanted to stay buried. And he was fine with that. If he started asking Silver about her past, his would be fair game for the redheaded smuggler, and that was a wound he didn't particularly want to tear open again. Not yet, at least.
He didn't need to know what sentimental reason made the Captain keep carrying that old, beat-up blaster in an ankle holster when she'd bought--or found--and sold ones five times better without batting an eye. He didn't care how she'd developed such a warped sense of humor, and he wasn't terribly curious about jobs she'd had in the past--intriguing as some of her "old friends" they'd run into had made a couple of said jobs sound.
But he was curious, almost to the point of distraction, about the trio of scars tha

The sky, he thought, had never been so blue and only now as he lay helpless on his back did he appreciate the true color it and wondered why he had never taken the time to notice it before now. Captain Rex felt the sun shining on his face, his helmet lay on the ground next to him. General Skywalker, or Anakin as he had demanded that Rex start to call him, knelt on the hard ground next to where he lay, lightsaber still ignited and a look of worry crossing his face. Rex could tell his lips were moving, but from the concussive force of the grenade that had gone off nearby, his ears were still ringing and he felt as though his limbs were made of heavy lead.
And what was that smell?
Rex's eyes grew wide as he finally recognized the smell and he tried to turn his head to see where it was coming from. It was the smell of parched and seared plastoid armor and, and..... blood.

Upon arrival the soldiers climbed from their hovering vehicles and set up a basic perimeter. The opposition’s delegates arrived shortly after. Both leaders starred with a burning fire at the other. Tensions between the two were all too apparent. Kien grew uncomfortable as he studied the soldier’s tension from both sides.
The officers of Granich’s forces were far better dressed, groomed, and armed…the oppositions commandos were tired, worn, caked with dirt, heavily scarred, but resolved in their cause. “Master Athura..this war…it’s a game of chess to them..”

Scars"Blast it, Corso, would you hold still?" Silver groused, instinctively tightening her grip on his shoulder as he flinched. She tried to avoid digging her fingers into the blaster wound she'd been in the process of cleaning out, with limited success.Scars3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"Sorry, Captain," Corso muttered, wincing and fighting the urge to flinch again. "Can't help it. That really hurt."
"I know. I'm bein' as careful as I can," she promised. "But plasteel splinters aren't going to come out by themselves, and you can't reach it, so just bear with me."
Normally, they each took care of their own injuries when necessary, patching themselves up well enough with kolto and synthskin. But their last run-in with the bandits camping out on the Tarisian settlement had involved a much more drawn out fight than usual, and Corso had caught a nasty graze from a blaster bolt across the back of his shoulder. It had seared through his armor, decorating the burn it left in his shoulder with splinters from the plasteel and fragme

This is a gift for gloryblz.
Rex pulled his fatigues from his laundry duffle and shoved them into the washer. He crammed in as many as he possibly could. He didn't want to spend all day in this place trying to get his clothes clean. Something bad had happened to the laundry droid after Cody's men had gotten ahold of it and now all the men were responsible for washing their own clothes. He'd rather be shot at and if Cody didn't watch it, the commander would find a blaster pistol tucked neatly under his chin for making Rex wash his own clothes.
It felt like they were back on Kamino. When they were merely children, they had been given washroom duty. The gray aliens said that it was so they could learn responsibility. Hell, they stuck pistols in their hands when they were five, how much more responsibility did they think the clones needed? So the stark white laundry room with bright lights, reminded him of those days back on Kamino. Not the most pleasant memories

Chapter 28: A jaded new life.
A deep sigh escaped Anders as he closed his book in which he wrote most of his manifesto. The mage slumped into his chair and looked about his clinic; there were a few people sleeping in the beds. Three years had come and gone, it almost felt he had dreamed them. Thera had never really recovered from Bethany; her mother blamed her for taking her despite her protests; which led to Thera heavily abusing her lyrium addiction and alcohol. He and her had a somewhat of a falling out months ago when he tried to get her back down to, at least, a more manageable intake of lyrium and alcohol; it eventually turned into a big fight in front of everyone and she told him then and there to get lost, that she wanted nothing to do with him.
Anders would never tell anyone how much that crushed him. He and her were doing well, he was getting better at telling her things about his past; he was even almost to the point of telling her about things that

Oh look, another Star Wars related critique. If you're a fan, just leave and go read something else.
No? You're sure? Well okay then.
Star Wars isn't perfect. It's good sci-fi fun, just like how "Raiders of the Lost Ark" was just an adventure movie to give you the feeling of watching an old adventure serial from the old days, "Star Wars" was originally intended to be a light-hearted adventure that throws the audience into a scenario and ends on a cliffhanger for the possibility of the next serial episode to come next week in the theater.
Anybody whose read my 20+ pages for "The Phantom Menace" and "Attack of the Clones" probably know I prefer the original trilogy more than the prequels. The originals just hold up better for me into adulthood for the emotional resonance and hard work put into the set designers and spe
CuddlesLeia was late getting home from work again. Han supposed he should be used to this after six years of being married to one of the most prominent politicians in the New Republic, but tonight happened to be one of the coldest nights of the year. Hell, maybe it was one of the coldest nights in Coruscant history. He was wearing long-sleeved pajamas and a thick bathrobe, wrapped up in a blanket as he sat on the couch halfheartedly watching the holovid, but he still shivered. He stuck his hands up his sleeves in an attempt to warm them up, but that did little to help, even when he reached up to his armpits.Cuddles5 months ago in Romance More Like This
A quick glance at the wall chronometer revealed that it was past midnight. Over three hours since he'd put the kids to bed, over three hours he'd been waiting for his wife. Why didn't he just go to bed himself after the children settled down?
Maybe because he didn't feel like sleeping in an empty bed tonight.

A whole month had passed. A month of boredom and impatience. A month since Obi-wan Kenobi had led Asajj Ventress to Planet Dagobah.
The Empire had become firmly founded. The once benign Senator Palpatine, reluctant Chancellor and besieged leader of the Republic during the Clone Wars, had become as monstrously oppressive as any Dictator in galactic history.
Ventress had no love for the Republic, or the Jedi Order Emperor Palpatine had crushed underfoot, but even she saw dire signs for the future.
She had also sensed extreme danger when Palpatine brought forth to the public one of his most devoted servants, Vader.
Vader was a horrifying construct, and was bathed in the Dark Side. Vader's single minded obsession to hunt down all Force users sent her into hiding along with the few remaining Jedi scattered throughout the galaxy.
Her initial run took her to Tatooine, where she stayed hidden and was even mentored by Kenobi to hide her Force abilities from the greater

I see the way you look at me
That searching stare, that scrutiny
But it’s not your right to judge
We all have things within our pasts
We’re not proud to recall
Closets full of skeletons, regrets, remorse
Our own dark fall
Your choice I don’t begrudge
So don’t give me that self-righteous stare
Like your heart is pure
And your soul is bare
Because in you
The darkness too is strong
There is power in the hate you feel
Embrace the anger and let it fill
That’s where it starts
A seed of darkness planted deep
A sapling growing that learns to feed
Upon the loathing you feel for yourself
I see it mirrored in your eyes
You hate your father just as much as I
It’s too late now
I’m too far gone
That light’s too weak
To change this path I’m on
But you I see
Need but a nudge
The good in you
Is not too strong to budge
Your thoughts betray you
I can see
Your friends and even family
A twin, a sis
