I let my fingers hover over the keyboard and my eyes stare at the glowing the screen
The blank slate, glowing slate
It stares back at me.
I can’t think, I can’t think I shout
I stare at the wall, the wall stares back
My head seems as empty as a rusted out gas tank.
Passing lights come through the window
My room lights up and then goes dark
As if someone took a picture.
I dive into thought and swim around
My mind full of useless junk
Then I see way in the back, an idea.
I then look up at the glowing screen, glowing slate
I stare at it, it stares at me
My fingers lightly tap the keys.

Into The Stars
Into the Stars
Into the stars and space beyond,
We fly past moons and new planets alike.
(But we still keep going, further away from home.)
The sun is dim and space is black.
The stars all twinkle and wink.
(Into the stars and space beyond)
They could be waiting for us,
They could have already seen us.
(We keep going, further away from home.)
Past the asteroids and frozen rocks,
Through the nebulas and dying stars
(Into the stars and space beyond)
Past the rim, the edge of time
Into the abyss and further unknown
We keep going, further away from home.
Darkness is our only friend,
Our only notice of the edge,
Into the stars and space beyond.

He has betrayed me.
He betrayed me.
Will karma catch up?
And make him pay.
Or should I, plan out a game?
Make him suffer, and make him pay.
Oh the pain,

Why did he disown me?
Why was he so rude?
I will plot revenge.
I will have revenge.
I shall make him pay.
I will ruin his time.

In What Universe: Chapter 1 Part 11
Nova stood up and tapped Nexelus on the shoulder. Nova watched Nexelus stand up and point forward with a single nod. Nova slowly led Nexelus towards the back of the ship, keeping his profile low as to not smack his head on the low ceiling. He ran his hand along the round shaped, smooth, white walls of the ship. He lifted his hand up a little when he came across an elevated ridge in the wall. Two thin glowing blue lines ran down the middle of the wall and ceiling. They pulsed every few seconds as new energy flowed through them and towards the engines. A few feet later the corridor opened up in a circular room with white leather couches running against the wall and several statues and trinkets placed inside small wall cubbies with the utmost care. One of the couches, in a corner of the room where the curve of the wall was noticeably tighter, was a small white table that stretched up from the dark chrome floor. The top of the table was circlaur in shape with a black and gray chessboard p

Nexelus sat still for a minute. “Why not just hack my ship’s files?”
“I hate to had admit it,” said Abel. “but your computer is beyond me, I can’t read ancient draconic and neither can Malik.”
“I’ll do it.” said Nexelus. “But I expect to get everything you promised.”
“Fair enough.” said Abel. “Now eat. Marth will take care of the details.”
Nexelus woke up the next morning to someone banging on the door to the guest room. Nexelus sat up and swung his legs over the side of the bed and onto the metal floor. He stood up and stretched, unfolding his wings and yawning loudly.
“Mister Nullvera,” said a voice from the other side of the door. “Abel is requesting your presence at the landing pad.”
“I’ll be there in a few minutes.” replied Nexelus.
“I’ll let him know.” said the voice.

“Brother.” said the dragon.
Nexelus embraced the dragon with his arms and they both held each other in their wings. They both put their foreheads against each other’s and slowly swayed side to side in their embrace. For the first in decades Nexelus could feel something in his mind other than anger. His tense stance relaxed as the feeling of safety and bliss filled his mind as he welcomed the embrace of his brother’s wings.
“It’s not a trick, it’s not an allusion. It’s really me Nexy.” said the dragon.
“Nova.” siad Nexelus in a somber tone, still swaying with his brother. “Nova. Nova. Nova. Nova. Why didn’t you not come home? Why? Why didn’t come home?”
“I was dying, along with mom and dad.” he said, his voice wavering. “Then, Abel’s father found me. He saved me. He went back to get mom and dad, but the humans had already come through and cleaned up what was left. We got int

Nexelus sat in silence. He holstered his pistol and slowly exhaled. He listened to the hydra’s claws click on the stone floor. He waiting for her to stop under the loft.
“Aim for the heart.” the dragon said to himself. “Right into the center of the heart.”
“Nexy.” said the hydra, now standing directly below the dragon.
Nexelus pulled himself over the railing and jumped down. As his paws made contact with the polished floor and he wrapped his left arm around the chest of scale covered being and he deployed his blade, bringing it up to the being’s throat.
“Wrong one.” said the being.
Nexelus looked through his visor at the figure. He had a gray and red dragon held hostage. The hydra emerged from behind a marble column. All three of her heads smiled.
“I would have thought that you would have known the difference between mimicking and the real thing.” she said.

Halo: Ashes of Reach part 2
The spartan unloaded his clip into the elite. Each bullet lighting up the elite’s shields until they popped. With one last shot from his magnum, a bullet struck the elite in the head, and the alien crumpled to the rain soaked and ash covered ground.
“Is that all?” shouted the sergeant to his men.
Two of the other ODSTs quickly climbed up to the top of the ridge and peered down the other side, their eye peering down their rifle sights.
“We’re clear sarge.” answered the ODST with a sniper rifle.
“Let’s get a move on then corpel. We’re sitting ducks out here.”
“Copy sir.” replied both the ODSTs standing on the top ridge as they jogged back down.
“Coming with us spartan?” the sergeant. “We could use the help on our way to our pelican.”
“You have a pelican sir?” asked Six.
The sergeant sighed. “At the very least, I hope we still do..  We’ve been been looking for a way

“I want to get off this rock now.” replied the dragon.
“What happened to using the night to hide us?” the sergal questioned.
“Nothing, I just want to hurry things along.” answered the dragon, flapping his wings once and fly into the sky.
“Fucking scalies.” Abel said himself, flying into the sky with his armor.
Abel landed softly on a metal walkway at the back of the base. He scanned the area with his eyes, trying to remain perfectly still. He caught Nexelus kneeling on a walkway above a green shuttle. A single guard was standing in front of the ramp of the shuttle. Abel glided over to Nexelus. He landed beside him and Nexelus handed him his guns and jumped down. Abel sighed and dropped the guns. He watched as Nexelus landed on the guard, one paw on the human’s chest and the other on the concrete floor. The soldier screamed but Nexelus slid his paw over the human’s mouth with a stupidly wide grin. Abel watched as the human trie

Mayday (Star Wars Story Rewrite Part 1)
20 BBY. Republic Cruiser New Dawn. In orbit above Jeddha.
Virus sat on his bed in his quarters and gazed at this scarred reflection in the visor of his new phase II armor. He had already painted large dark green thinning rectangle onto the chest piece of his new armor. He had requested an enlarged shoulder plate for his left side to help protect his exposed arm when in a firefight. It had an awkward weight to it and always seemed to reminding him of its constant presence. His comlink started to beep. He tapped the button.
“Virus here.” he said.
“CT-2628 please report to hangar bay A-5 to receive mission briefing.” said the comlink.
Virus sighed. “It’s Virus, the name is Virus.”
“Stop talking, start moving.” said the comlink in a stern voice before it clicked off.
Virus put on his helmet and waited for the soft hiss of the armor’s airtight seal to connect. A few short seconds later he heard a soft hiss and felt his neck seal ti

“And?” asked the voice.
“I don’t know. I think he knows dad though.” Abel said to himself again.
“We’ll talk later.” said the voice.
Abel’s heart jumped slightly as he was dropped by Nexelus. Abel’s armor thrusters activated and he slowly descended onto a rocky cliff side. Nexelus landed heavily beside Abel and shook his wings, sending drops of water all over the place. Abel watched as the dragon shook his head and tail rapidly side to side.
“Shaking the water off won’t really help. It’s pouring up here.” said Abel.
“Instinct.” said Nexelus walking towards the mouth of a cave. “Something we can’t get rid of.
Nexelus entered the cave and held out his palm. He snapped his fingers and a small white flame came to life in his palm. Abel could feel no heat from the flame. He only got colder as he walked closer to it.
“You’re an ice dragon?” asked Abel.

Anthro Worldbuilding: Part 1
Anthro Week
This two-part article was written by Ryuukei8569 and Tinselfire.
Do you enjoy creating anthropomorphic animal characters and worlds for them to live in? So do we, so we decided to share our thoughts on settling and dressing them. This essay will cover points to consider developing and some common design issues, but you should read these as food for thought rather than a fixed set of rules to follow. When designing your own worlds, not even the sky is the limit.
Setting up your setting
In this essay anthro for short refers to animal characters that display a significant number of human traits, such as upright posture, culture, speech and tool use, while feral refers to mundane animals. In a more general sense feral can also refer to animal characters that display human traits while keeping a normal animal form, such as the Farthing Wood animals, but in this case it does not.

Clothes on animals?
Since the bodies of anthropomorphic animal characters differ from those of humans, ranging from slightly to significantly so, clothing anthros in a believable manner presents a set of challenges.
First, there is the elephant in the room – animals do not wear clothes, and have no need nor desire to do so. If you are striving to portray a distinct culture of anthropomorphic animals realistically, in most contexts they are not going to be wearing clothes at all. There are a number reasons why:
For species with fur or feathers, there are biological obstacles to clothing, chief among them being temperature regulation. Such species cannot sweat anywhere near the same amount that humans can, and adding a layer of clothing to a furry creature dramatically increases their bodies' heat retention.

For those of you who do read my stuff every ten days, when I normally upload stuff, I'm just letting you know that school is becoming far more important than writing the In What Universe series. So I'm taking a short break from DA for awhile. I might post some short stories that are related to a book I'm trying to publish, but there won't much else. If you need or want a request done just send over a note and I'll take a look at it. See you guys soon.

First Star Wars movie was A New Hope, I saw it in early 2005.

Other Star Wars content I read/watch is the new Thrawn book, Star Wars the Clone Wars (2003 and 2008 series, I consider both as cannon), and Star Wars Rebels.

Favorite Zootopia character is Nick Wilde.

Favorite Star Wars character is Captain Rex.

I prefer the current cannon as legends is a bit far fetched.

No, I don't agree with the video. Not completely though. I do consider the Old Republic to be cannon. 

No, I don't ship. I prefer the war part of Star Wars and only watched Zootopia because it looked funny and cute.

What is the point of these questions?
