Ahsoka and Lux: Taking A ChanceAnakin Skywalker and his Padawan, Ahsoka Tano, came to Senator Padmé Amidala's office at the Senate building. They received a call from her about very great news and wanted them to come to her immediately. The duo came through the door to see Padmé sitting at her desk with a cheerful smile on her face.
Padmé came to hug both of them in a warming welcome. "So what's this 'great news'?" Anakin spoke with a smile.
"Raxus has seceded from the Separatist and is joinging the Republic!" Padmé said with excitement. Anakin and Ahsoka glanced at each other with smiles. "That's great news," said Ahsoka.
"Believe me, Ahsoka, it really is," Padmé replied. "Mina Bonteri has finally joined the Republic."
"Oh, yes," Anakin spoke, "Senator Bonteri is a friend of your's."
"Yes, and best of all, Chancellor Palpatine is throwing a ball here, tonight, and I'm inviting both of you to come."
"We're greatly honored, Padmé," said Ahsoka, politely.

A few days have passed since the incident at the bar, and right now, I was in my room, meditating.
I know, shocking, right?
I sighed softly, it was quiet in here, it made it a lot easier. Then, there was a knock at the door. I got up, walked to the door of mine and Anakin's shared quarters. I opened, and Master Kit Fisto was there. I smiled, bowed, and said "Master." He smiled back, and said "Hello, Ahsoka," He looked around, and asked "Where is Master Skywalker?" I shrugged, stood up, and told him "He isn't here, I think he left to go look for that gang leader." "Well, the reason I am here is to tell you about that gang leader," He said, looking down at me "and I believe it is better for you to be told personally." "What do you mean?" I asked, looking at him confused. He told me plain out: "That gang leader you talked about, Trenkam? He put a hit out on you."

As me and Ahsoka walked through the lower regions of Coruscant, or the Undercity to some, looking for the Hell-bringers gang leader-Trenkam, or T-with every step I took, I was regretting bringing Ahsoka with me on this mission. T is known for his murders, which he calls 'justice' and he's also known for his way with women, mostly young women. Basically, he used the women before leaving them out as if they were trash. He would say they need 'protection' and them tell them he could help. That's his way to get those poor girls. Lying.
I looked down at Ahsoka, who was looking forward with her hood over her lekku and face, covering them both. I knew Ahsoka wouldn't fall for T's tricks, bu

"Have you be told about the prophecy of the chosen one?"
The Jedi Master stood up look down at the young boy and spoke.
"It has been told for many thoundsands of years that a jedi should be trained and that, this Jedi would be a vessel of pure force and will be more powerfull that any other Jedi. Powerful enough to bring the force into balance" the young boy nodded thoughtfully.

Why did you have to die?
I could have saved you,
I know I could have,
But I promise that I will never let this happen again.
They betrayed me,
Attempted to murder one of my closest friends,
And they never supported me,
They don't understand,
None of them do,
My intentions are good,
But they don't realize it yet.
My life is ruined,
A life lost,
But that life was the life of an angel,
My one true love,
And I killed her,
Out of anger and jealousy,
Forever I will live my life a hollow shell,
Knowing that the one she trusted most brought her to her downfall.
I will never let anyone hurt the ones I love,
But here it is,
My master torturing my son,
He is screaming for me
Which side do I choose,
My master or my dying son,
My choice is clear,
However in order to save the life of my son,
I must give up my own.

A beautiful planet of waterfalls,
Grasslands and swamps,
It's the perfect place to grow up,
I should know.
I love the water,
You can only imagine how it feels to swim in it,
And the sand is incredibly soft or so I've been told,
A place like no other.
You could just play around in the tall grasses all day,
With no one to disturb you,
Even the beautiful, yet busy cities nearby.
It would be near impossible not to love this place,
No matter where you are,
The city, lake country, or the underwater Gungan cities in the swamps,
Beauty is everywhere,
No wonder that is the place where my husband and I married.

Ahsoka had been Anakin's Padawan for about a year now, and Anakin noticed many changes in her: her attitude improved (along with her sense of humor), she became less of an over-curious Padawan and wasn’t too eager to jump into things anymore.
The growing was another thing he noticed…
Anakin didn’t expect it to happen so soon. Nobody did. He knew it was coming, but now he wasn’t prepared. Anakin didn’t know how he was going to cope with this in time for anything. He knew Ahsoka was a girl (only reason why it was okay for her to wear a tube top) and he knew she was going to grow up eventually (she had gotten about a head taller).
He just didn’t expect it to be so soon…
He noticed this little problem when he, Ahsoka, and part of Torrent Company had been training in the gym on board the Resolute.

And dream i do...
It was nighttime. I was so Force damn tired, but I couldn't sleep at all. Everytime I closed my eyes, I saw his face. I heard his voice. Felt his lips. Finally, as I fell into sleep, I saw him again. I knew it was a dream, but I didn't want the moment to end. He had smiled at me, held his gloved hand out to me, and told me "Come here, Little Lady." I had blushed and giggled, grabbed his hand, he pulled me towards him, and leaned towards me. Before his lips met mine, he said "I've missed you, Ahsoka." I smiled, blushing more, and before I could tell him I missed him too, his lips connected to mine. And just then, I came out of my wonderful dream, I looked down to the pillow in my arms, and saw some saliva on it as well as kiss marks.

She walked. The continuous screams of children filled her ears, the screams of pain, death. It shouted to her to help but she couldn't. She just walked through the corridors, dodging the fallen bodies that littered the floor around her, the blood soaked the marble floor as the blaster shots became louder and louder. The darkness engulfed round her like a never-ending blanket that rendered her blind. Lightsaber strokes filled her ears now, the clashing of the weapons coming together bringing her closer to her goal. Then it all stopped. She walked into the council chambers where sights that made her sick stood before her. Younglings, only about 5 or 6 maybe even younger littered the floor, their blood seeping through the chairs of the council. Lightsaber slashes littered their little chests causing the blood to seep from it. Movement by Master Windu's chair brought her over to see one of the youngling still alive, gasping for

Then Anakin had chased Miles and his apprentice into a clearing, Anakin used the Force and threw Miles' gun out of his hand. Anakin said "Put your hands in the air, you are under arrest." Miles turned to his apprentice and said "Run!" she nodded and started running followed by Miles, after a few seconds a speeder came by and hit Miles' apprentice. "Erica!"

Since when did Anakin Skywalker began to think about his young Padawan as beautiful?
Yeah, she was attractive, but he never thought of her as "beautiful".
And it was wrong for him to think like that.
She was his Padawan and he was her Master, and it was forbidden for them to be in love.
Anakin did have affection for Ahsoka, but it was as family or even friends.
He would worry about her recklessness puldging her into danger, and he can't believe how idiotic she was when she took on General Gerivous all by herself.
And she put the mission first instead of her own life.
Normally, some Padawan (if they were in her postion) would run and fail the mission.
But Ahsoka put herself last, and help complete the mission...and drive him insane with concern.

She’d been through so much in such a short amount of time. It was heartbreaking to watch her run away from me at every moment I’d caught up with her. I had never doubted her innocence from the beginning. I had been determined to bring the one who’d framed her to justice, determined to keep my Padawan safe from whatever cruelties lie waiting for her. She didn’t deserve to be cast away from the Jedi. We were her family; I was her family.
I stood in the Senate, my heart beating beyond explanation. Ahsoka stood in shackles before me, Padme defending her. I had finally completed my promise to her. I did prove her innocence.

Do you tell yourself that you're going to write and never do it? Do you keep talking about your book but leave it sitting at chapter 2 for five months straight? Is it difficult for you to sit down and actually write something?
Most people don't write because there are so many easier ways to spend their time. Their favorite show is on at eight. Oh, look, their friend just posted a bunch of photos online. Then they feel like baking cookies. And suddenly, a day that was supposed to be productive has been spent on TV, the internet, and food.

Internet communities often lash out at writers who create Mary Sues. Declaring the writing to be below their standards, they proceed to punish the creators. They mock the characters, verbally abuse the writers, and write hyperbolically about how much they wish the characters would die.
Bullying writers (who may be very young) is only going to make them afraid to write—and therefore improve—or share their work. Not only that, but it discourages other writers from speaking for fear of public mockery, and it may silence the voices that could someday become great.

What Is a Mary Sue?Hover over blue text for elaboration.More Like This
Mary Sues are a common phenomenon in stories: a character who gets special treatment. The definition of a Mary Sue is subjective, so it isn't always easy to tell whether a character is or isn't a Sue.
A male Mary Sue might also be called a Gary Stu, Marty Stu, or Marty Sue. Male characters are less often accused of being Mary Sues than females are.
Mary Sues are a natural part of learning to write, and while the writing community often lashes out at writers for creating them, their existence does not indicate a lack of writing ability. Mary Sues can be analyzed, improved, and outgrown over time, and they're common starting places for many writers.
Mary Sues are created when the author becomes too invested in a character (or that character's success) for the story's own good. This can manifest

For non-native English speakers and young readers: If you hover over a blue word, you'll see its definition.
Punctuating dialogue can be surprisingly difficult, even for people whose first language is English. It's one of the things that you see all the time in books, but you pay little attention to, and all your English teachers assume that you already know it. Sure, if you read a lot, you pick up the basics, but even then it can be difficult to unconsciously absorb all the rules. (Until 2012, I was making heinous mistakes with commas vs. periods. I'm still weeding out errors from my novel.)
Anyhow, for the sake of my fellow spirits who bemoan the lack of proper dialogue education, I've researched the subject and compiled this little guide. I hope that it answers your questions, and that it isn't too dull.
Note: I use American English. Other English-speaking countries may have slightly different rules.
Exercise: Your Character's Distinct VoiceMore Like This
The purpose of this exercise is to see how much you've differentiated each of your main characters' voices from each other.
How to Use
Pick a few major characters in your story. (I recommend using between 3 and 6.) For each of the numbered prompts below, choose what each character would say in that circumstance. You may want to write a few sentences of dialogue from that character or a quick internal monologue.
These lines are meant to generate short pieces of dialogue (about 1-5 sentences), as it's easiest to compare lines to each other that way. If you start writing long paragraphs or another character's reply to your character, then stop. Copy and paste the text. Then place it in a Sta.sh Writer or other document and continue the scene there. If you like it, post it (and credit me for the prompt, if you please!).

Brought to you by Super Editor
Many authors struggle with names. After coming up with a character who perfectly fits his or her intended role, planning personality traits, clothing, hobbies, and physical descriptions, now you have to sum all of that character's being up in a name!
There is an incredible number of ways to choose a name. Often authors are baffled by the vast array of first names and surnames that could be given to a character, and it's almost impossible to start. Whether you're hoping for a name that could belong to any girl on a street or a fantasy warrior from planet Xyla, there are infinite ways of choosing a name.
The best way to find ordinary names is a list. Sometimes one might choose a name that actually means something, while other times one might hope for an ordinary name with little more meaning than "her mom liked it."

How to Write a [Near]-Fainting Experience
Brought to you by Super Editor
You've probably all read books or seen movies in which a character passes out. The heroine might swoon gracefully and collapse onto the floor or into the hero's arms. People rush to bring water, a doctor, or something to revive her. She then wakes up, rosy-cheeked and a bit distressed, and she fans herself for a while while insisting that she is fine.
Fainting in real life is not nearly so beautiful. Authors, especially ones with no experience, can sometimes fall for such idealized descriptions. I am (un)fortunate enough to have experience in this area, so I will share it here.
Quick Losses of Consciousness
Usually this involves an impact or a sudden pain. The character may have no idea what happened to him or her afterwards, and later results vary depending on the severity of any injuries sustained.
