Re: Second Star to the Right

The first thing Bek noticed about the planet Kamendor was the dirty brown landmasses that covered the world; several small to medium continents dotted with far too few specks of green. The second thing he noticed, was the large white dagger shape that was creeping over the horizon of the planet like...

Re: Second Star to the Right

For a good minute and a half after the Even Trade had made her escape to hyperspace no one said a word. Bek sat silently brooding, working through the mix of emotions he was feeling. While anger and fear were initially foremost amongst them, they both finally gave way to a sort of resigned serenity....

Re: Second Star to the Right

After boarding the Even Trade, Kin returned to her quarters. She kicked off her shoes, threw her newly acquired nerf hide jacket onto the deck and sprawled full length on her bunk. She stared up at the grey metal of the hull above her and found herself mildly annoyed at Bek. Of course she hadn’t bee...

Re: Second Star to the Right

The droids had all but finished loading the Even Trade when Bek found himself being approached by a second woman. He half opened one eye to watch her draw near. This time she had none of Kin’s quiet confidence, in fact she seemed nervous and slightly on edge and he noted the way she positioned herse...

I wrote a post last night and thought I’d posted it, but evidently it didn’t work.

Re: Light saber Crystals

I always saw the Lightsaber as a symbol and a tool rather than anything else.

The warning alarm made Alek jump. This wouldn’t have been so bad had his head and shoulders not been stuck inside the B-Wing’s dorsal maintenance hatch at the time. He slid out from underneath the fighter, cursed, and rubbed the back of his head where he’d banged it. He stared uncomprehendingly arou...

Kinesh Morova Desch opened her eyes and stretched sensuously.
