Eggs Have Always Hated MeEggs have always hated meEggs Have Always Hated Me9 years ago in Humor More Like This
Since the dawn of time, or at least since I could remember I have always hated eggs. They taste horrid, bad for you, and impossible to cook, but little did I dream that the eggs in turn have always hated me as well. This morning was different. As I awoke my eyes fell upon the egg standing on my chest. How the egg get its two little black legs and matching arms I don't know, but there it was pointing its makeshift toothpick spear at my head. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that I would be threatened with physical violence from an egg. I was beginning to think that I was becoming nutty as a fruit cake. I had a sneaking suspicion that the micro waved burrito that I chased down with a bottle of Mountain Dew while burning the midnight oil last night was to blame. Despite that belief I couldn't help but stare and wonder about this odd situation.
I thought to myself, "How could it find its way up the bed without any eyes?"

As now we drift amongst denial
toward our certain fall
Is it better to have loved and lost
than never loved at all?
For every stolen day with you
my heart clings to you more
But I have lost the ones I loved
too many times before
And though Ive put up barriers
to keep my heart held in
I fear that soon before you leave
you may have stole within
I can remember all those times
You said that you would stay
But now I stand alone, inert
and watch you walk away

She was gone. In that one last quiet moment with Anakin, Ahsoka Tano had walked away from it all. The Jedi, her Master, all of her hopes and ambitions. She was free to rewrite her destiny before others could do it for her.
Ahsoka put her best foot forward and walked away. Where will she go now? Her despair was so great she could have fallen to pieces there. Anakin watched in shock as she left. One strand of hair would hold a lifetime of memories. Anakin stood and watched, but he was not the only one to watch. In the distance, Ventress casually watches the events unfold and conclude.....
Anakin let her go. Ahsoka kept on going, further and further from the Temple. She had no money, no possessions, almost no strength to live. Though her walking took her far from her troubles, she realized she couldn't leave the planet except as a stowaway, or
Abandoned Armored TroopersThe neighboring planet, rings slightly tilted diagonally from lower left to upper right, stared back with no concern for the two abandoned armored troopers. He bit his lower lip, leaned his head forward to allow his eyes to track two sets of footprints converging to a point on the horizon seven miles away, their presence three hours ago. His mind thought of various poems he read as a youngster that may fit the melancholy scene. One came to mind as he tilted his head back again to gaze at the heavenly body.Abandoned Armored Troopers2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This

Order 66: Shock Troops of the Coruscant Guard -- Commander Thire
Fatigued and weary the troopers of Coruscant are,
An attack on the capital was nothing but imminent,
We held the senate district by the tip of our nails,
Our casualties but a shallow scar.
Mischievous were the intentions of the Jedi as of late,
Made all too clear as their influence and position spread,
They plotted and tumbled from their moral high ground,
Filling the public and their troopers with animosity and hate.
An alarm has sounded in the chambers of the senate,
A holo projection of our leader fighting off the nimble High Jedi Master,
Their last ditch effort..a final coup de grace..a second attempt to assassinate,
Your temple is in ruin..our success met with the sound of victorious sennet.
I will hunt until you are caught or lie wasted in the gutter,
The great masters, the pacifist protectors, falling grey into memory,
We'll hold your temple as a reminder to those who do not acclimate to strife,

The clash of sharpened steel echoed in Grievouss ears as he advanced slowly, his brown cloak flapping behind him as it followed his movements. He kept his mind in the fight, considering all angles: knowing which would help him win, knowing which would make him lose. He locked blades with his opponent again. He took a moment to feel the shift of dry soil under his clawed, bare feet.
Suddenly, Grievouss opponent thrust up his weapon toward Grievouss chest.
Ahh! Grievous yelled. He clutched his opponents sword. Then he staggered, brought up his other hand, and collapsed hard onto his back.
Eyes closed, Grievous heard his opponent come closer, examining him. Then he felt breath near the eye sockets of his mumuu skull-mask.
A hand shoved Grievouss armored shoulder.

The Predor scoured the point of his spear over the corpse. The Strategists at his back were already discussing about the scanty information just reported by the selkath explorer.
In the meantime the Builders' legion was spurring the slaves' hordes through the mountain pass beneath them; the sanguine rays of the dying sun barely enlightened the rugged passage and weren't warm enough for the cold-blooded warriors.
«The primitives will attack within this rotation. We make our stand here.»
The Predor turned himself to the Warlords, ending the discussion.

Count Dooku & Snively were walking around in one of the storage areas of the ship that just took off when Dooku stopped all of a sudden. Before Snively could say anything, they heard a voice behind them. "Dooku!" Anakin yelled, igniting his lightsaber. "You're going to pay for what you've done!" Sonic appeared from behind Anakin shortly after. "Hello, Snobely." Sonic taunted, with Snively glaring at him. "Ah, young Skywalker...." Dooku sneered. "....& the hedgehog. I sensed your presences near. Both of you will be the first to test my new gift to the Republic. I'm curious what effect it'll have on a Jedi & a very fast blue hedgehog." He pointed to a strange sphere-like object. Sonic looked behind him to see an armored man point a blaster at them. "Anakin!" Sonic yelled. Just when the armored man fired the blaster shots, Anakin deflected them with his lightsaber.

The recently promoted Jedi Knight stood before the Jedi Council awaiting her first assignment. She wondered briefly if most other Jedi felt nervous when they stood in the same spot she was in now but tried to push it out of her mind.
"Jedi Adaavia, much nervousness we sense in you." The wisdom of Master Yoda was hard to ignore, especially since she was sure she was almost sweating right now.
"Yes master, it is my first assignment after passing the trials. I do not want the Council's trust in me to be misplaced." The woman tried to calm herself down to little avail.
"Your worry, misplaced it is. Your concern on the mission should be." Yoda continued. "To Dorumaa you must go, heard rumors of a Separatist base on the planet we have. Investigate these rumors you must."

The dusk has come and gone upon Felucia,
Plants and animals a plethora of colors adore their feral nature.
The planet embraced the galaxies plight making every day a struggle on Felucia,
Plants and animals bristling with gnashing teeth, thorns, spikes, poisons,and colors to allure.

Everyday the struggle brought a chance to turn the tide,
If only we were so fortuitous,
Perhaps not so many of us would have died.

Holovid diary entry one seventy three:
Master Unduli informed me just moments ago that I have been reassigned to master Skywalker until further notice, when I asked her the reason for the change she simply told me it was standard protocol. I don't know how to feel about this to be quite honest, I hope something I did hasn't made master Unduli think I don't deserve her teachings.
No, no if that were the case she would of told me, there has to be something else going on here. Apprentice to the chosen one, this just doesn't feel right. With Ahsoka I could sense a deep connection between her and Skywalker, I see now why master Yoda insisted on having Skywalker train her. But to be quite honest I'm not sure if I can live up to his expectations.

CIS vs GAR WarshipsCIS Warships vs. Republic warshipsCIS vs GAR Warships6 years ago in Philosophy & Perspectives More Like This
The Republic seems to have the advantage in capital ship combat, but the CIS has some equalizing advantages.
Many of the CIS warships are designed for mass production, and were designed for business scores not a full scale war. Many of the CIS leaders were cheap, and wouldnt spend the money for a traditional fleet. Only the Providences seem to be specifically designed for combat. The Lukrehulks are simply converted freighters with VERY strong shields and some turbolaser offensive capability., but with the sheer number of Turbolasers and the shield power added, with the fighter and troop compliment, a Lucrehulk is much a more battle-worthy ship than a carrier like a Venator (why it takes a flotilla to take them down). That's not bad at all for a converted ship, isn't it The Recusants are mass-produced destroyers.

Barriss looked in the mirror in Ahsoka's room one last time, in preparation of tonight's outing she figured her usual black robe and hood might be a bit plain. Instead a quick look in her friends wardrobe had provided more than enough options to find the perfect outfit, setting her Jedi robe on her cot on the other side of the room she took a closer look at herself.
A tight strapless black dress covered the majority of her olive skinned body save a large chunk of the back (most of the clothes in Ahsoka's wardrobe leaves the back bare), and her regular combat boots were swapped out for a pair of skin tight (also black) knee highs 'I gotta ask Skywalker where the force he lets Ahsoka shop'. But as she used her reflection in the mirror to apply a thin layer of mascara she couldn't help but admire the most time consuming part of her outfit.
It had taken hours to apply the extensions to her hair but as the jet black mass fell gracefully behind her shoulders

Conclusions for "Sacrifice of the Widow" by Lisa Smedon
Disclaimer: Contains Major spoilers for Sacrifice of the Widow. Do not read unless you have read the book or don't mind having major plot elements revealed.
I finished reading Sacrifice of the Widow and predictably threw the book across the room since I knew the rather painful ending.
Vhaeraun, one of my absolute favorite characters in the Forgotten Realms, is killed by Eilistraee apparently in battle after he tried to sneak into her realm.
In my denial stage, I came up with a few ideas for how this could not have happened. This was followed by a few huge realizations about the nature of the plot and how the pieces fit together.
After an hour or so of pouring through the book, I started connecting a few plot threads and made a realization: Vhaeraun may not be dead.
I could be absolutely wrong on this idea, either reading too much into this or missing the point entirely. Maybe I'
