He could hear the drumming of the person in lessons at the moment. He did his best to block it out as he practiced the same music. He looked at the multiple 16th notes and rolls. Across the sides of the sheet music were his notes on the choreography that went with the music for the marching band show.
He sighed as he tried to play the music while moving his feat in time and doing the different choreography moves. He started losing time and his rolls were getting sloppy. He threw the sticks down in dismay at the end. It was sad how sloppy and horrible he did on that rep.
Dick sat in the seat by his drum. He sifted through his bag until he found his phone. He had one new message from Wally.
Party tonight at my place! You gotta come!
Dick smiled. His phone vibrated again.
I'm outside right now. Bruce.

TMTY Chapter 11The many charts and displays on the bridge of DeJosa's cruiser glowed and beeped, with the occasional clone to check their readings. Skywalker and the 501st had already left for Teth in a smaller transport, leaving DeJosa to head towards her objective with her new company.TMTY Chapter 115 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Although the ship had to make a jump into hyperspace, no one in the command crew knew where the ship was supposed to go. DeJosa had never informed anyone of the location of the cruiser they were going to board, and on the command deck, she was nowhere to be seen.
Clone Commander Avon, the commander under DeJosa, waited impatiently for the general to arrive.
Avon was a very serious commander, and this was necessary to counterbalance DeJosa's aloofness. He was a babysitter; and without him, nothing on the ship would be done until DeJosa needed things done for her own benefit. This stress had turned his hair grey, and left him looking more aged than he was.
He had gotten to the bridge early, 4:00 a.m., on her orders. Th

Rex stared at the wall. Cody had gone drinking with the others, leaving Rex alone with Denal. Rolling over, Rex watched his most trusted trooper stretch and take off his armored boots.
Going to bed already Denal? Rex chuckled.
Denal turned and grinned at his captain, Well sir, we got training tomorrow dont we? With your drills, Ill need my rest. he snorted.
What? Rex grinned.
Oh its just the rest going off like that. Boy, their gonna have a hangover and go through drills. Sucks for them. Denal smirked.
Rex put his arms behind his head. He hadnt bothered to remove his armor yet. He wasnt even tired. After counting all of the scratches on his helmet, Rex glanced over to Denal who dozed with his arms crossed over his chest.
Loud barks of laughter and a hard thud directed Rexs attention to the door. Denal had awaken, annoyed at the interruption.

Date Night Chapter 1I wave Alfred goodbye as I head off to Wally's house. He invited me over for a date since his parents were out of town. We had lots of dates before but I hadn't been this nervous since our first date. I guess it was because we'd be alone in his house. I’d been to his house lots of times before, but we’ve never been…alone. I looked down at myself before knocking on the door. I checked to make sure the clothes were straight. I wore black jeans, a red shirt, red Converse and a black blazer with the sleeves rolled up to my elbows. I decided to go casual but still sexy.Date Night Chapter 12 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

He is wearing blue jeans, a white shirt, and a striped collared shirt that he left open and rolled the sleeves up to his elbows. "You look beyond sexy tonight," He smirks and gives me a quick kiss before inviting me in.

Waxer grinned as he replaced his helmet," I bet I could do better buddy, but at the moment, we need to figure out where General Kenobi is."
Boil threw Waxer his blaster and went back into the pod. He reappeared, his helmet underarm.

Grenades flew through the air and landed five yards from us, the mass of white plastoid covered bodies that were huddled behind an outcrop of rocks and droid remains. I could feel the shock wave of the impact travel up my feet and shake my molars. I covered my head, with my blasters in my hands, as a hailstorm of debris peppered my helmet and left a fine layer of charred dust clinging to the what was once pristine white armor. The smell of blaster fire, metal, dirt, smoke, blood, and adrenaline pumped bodies filled the air with a singe your nose hairs potency. Through my helmet I could hear the short frantic breaths of my brothers fighting to stay alive; with screams of agony and death, orders, and blaster fire coupled with the slow monotonous clanking of metal feet in advance.

Cody guffawed, " Naw, I think your just in the way.." he spat another eaten shell at Rex.
Rex dodged it and snatched Cody's helmet from the stump they were using as a table.

He opened the first beer and sighed. He drank some of the can and almost spit it out on the floor. He chugged the rest of the beer, doing his best not to taste it. He opened a second, a third, and the rest of the pack. He felt a buzz coming over him as he was drinking.

Stepping out onto the decking of the hanger bay, his boots clicked with a wonderfully precise sound. It sounded good to his ears because it was the one thing that always was in this war filled with things that just weren't always absolute. Finally off planet and en route. It always felt good to pull up roots and head out into the blackness of space. This was no different and he smiled underneath his helmet.

"I don't want to read the names of those who have been killed during this thankless mission," he said in a rough grizzly tone. Removing his helmet he rubbed a gloved hand over his head, feeling the skin through the gloves a strange sensation

Trinity's Growth Spurt: Prt 1Now Trinity was always different. She was not born a she. Nor was she born a he. She suffers from a one in a billion genetic defect that caused her body to be unable to express any gender at all. Her facial features were not quite masculine or feminine, something in between, but she did not have any Y chromosome so she was a female. She lacked nipples and she lacked genitals. They had to give her a surgery and catheter. Her parents always treated her like a girl however, and tried not to let her know anything about her genes. It was easy when she was a little girl, they dressed her like a girl, and put on some light makeup to make her look as feminine as possible, so that no one would suspect otherwise. All the little kids accepted her, she didnt look abnormal to them, there was no way they could tell, she lived a carefree life, only troubles in her head were the occasional boy stealing her graham cracker or the teacher not calling on her to answer her question. Life was good.Trinity's Growth Spurt: Prt 16 years ago in Erotic More Like This

Amazingly, Rex survived the savage detonation. When he came to, he was in so much pain he could hardly think straight. Rex's battered, broken body screamed in protest at his slightest movement, or did he scream? He looked down and saw Ahsoka's delicate body lying across his chest. She looked peaceful, even in death, almost as if she had simply fallen asleep. Rex hugged her and let out a low wail of part grief, part pain. It was mostly grief for Ahsoka.

With a push of his foot off the branch, the blonde commander surged forward in the thick forest with his companions following closely behind him, occasionally stopping to kill a Titan or two in their way.
Erwin’s ear perked up when a high-pitched scream, which clearly belonged to a female, resonated throughout the vast area. He stopped his movements and whipped his head back to examine the problem.
With great speed, a 7m class was currently running the direction opposite of the commander with one of the cadets hanging from its mouth, the only thing saving her being the forest-green fabric of her cloak clenched between the creature’s teeth.
The blonde’s face remained composed as he assessed the situation. Hanji was on the right, fighting off two 3m classes, while Mike was on the right, assisting another soldier; this left Erwin as the only possible candidate within the vicinity to help.

I try to see a future free
But all I see is you and not me
I see you and your eyes shine

I know you're scared
I feel it too
Maybe someday you'll know

This is how your pain will vent

Another year old and I fall alone

It has realistic characters and realistic villains. Despite the fantastic nature of events the main character does not slap on spandex and set out to save the world, she struggles to maintain normalcy in her life and the life of her family and friends. The villains aren't motivated by a quest for world domination; they're motivated by greed, vengeance and jealousy.
