SW: Dark Awakening chp: 8Kahan laid his dead brother upon the stone floor of the chamber, coming to his feet and staring at the floating figure before him.SW: Dark Awakening chp: 8 by SlingBlade87
“Who are you?”
“My name is not yet relevant to you.” the figure said, his voice echoing behind his golden mask.
“You've brought my brother back to life,” Kahan still had trouble accepting that this was in fact his brother he had just killed for a second time. “Kidnapped and twisted my wife against me, endangered and mutilated my children,” he took a deep breath and looked up at the golden mask. “I would say your name is very relevant.”
The masked man was silent, his foreboding presence amplified by the exotic saber, glowing red with its black core.
Kahan nodded in reply of the man's silence as he knelt and picked up his sabers, snapping them together into their single dual-bladed form.
“When this is over, I will know your name.”
The masked figure moved his saber and it hummed through th

Jedi Knight and General Choyel Dowitire was deep in meditation when the battle klaxon sounded, its blaring drone snapping her out of contemplation. She jumped to her feet, reaching out with the Force for her sabers which flew to her hands as she moved quickly from her chambers and through the Troika's passageways. All around her the crew were rushing to their battle stations and she did the same, taking the lift to the bridge alongside other members of the crew. As the lift doors opened and she moved onto the bridge proper the door sentry came to attention.
“General on deck.”
Commander Iago, her legion's clone mommander, turned to look at her with a grimly set expression.
“What's going on?” she asked as she joined him at the command station.
“A Separatist fleet just jumped in on us.” Iago replied tepidly.
Choyel looked at the sensor readings and f
SW: Dark Awakening chp: 7Kahan squared off against his two opponents, looking at the man who seemed to be a near copy of himself as he leered back at Kahan in what could only be called a crazed fashion.SW: Dark Awakening chp: 7 by SlingBlade87
“Who are you?” Kahan asked, holding his own unignited saberstaff in his hand. “Where is my wife?”
The man chuckled, holding a hand over his face as he held up his weapon.
“I'm hurt, you really don't remember me, remember yourself,” his gaze became crazed. “But I remember you little brother, I remember what you did to me.”
Kahan shook his head. “I don't know what you're talking about. I don't even have a mother, let alone a brother.”
The man threw his head back. “Oh Ka, you're too much, but I suppose I should expect that from you. You and Se were always the weak ones, and you could barely control your own powers!” he pounded his fist against his chest. “I was meant to be our Master's disciple, not you, not Se. I killed you but that sni
Jaira: SnowplayJango looked atound at the snowy expanse of the woods surrounding him. It was in a place like this that the men and women under his command head been wiped out by the Jedi. It had been another time, another planet, but the place was the same. Snow shrouded trees over broken ground blanketed in white. He took a deep breath, focusing on the present and the job at hand.Jaira: Snowplay by SlingBlade87
"Come on Aira-ty, we need to-!"
A cloud of white powder bust over Jango's head as little pricks of ice trickled under his armor and dampened his shirt. He turned to find his partner and sometimes lover Aira-ty Nokta laughing at him. Jango clenched and unclenched his fists as Aira-ty pointed at him.
"You should see the look on your face!"
"We have a job to do Aira-ty," he said with a scowl. "And I'm your Mandalore, you should-!"
Another snowball hit Jango in the face and he stood there glaring at the green haired woman as she snickered at him.
She gave him an apologetic smile and held his helmet out
Stygian MoonlightStygian Moonlight by SlingBlade87
The moon cast a soft glow over the lake's glassy surface. There was no movement across it, the only shift in its countenance being the subtle shifting of the tide line against the sandy beaches at its perimeter as gentle waves lapped at the shoreline. With the evergreen shrouded mountains surrounding the lake standing a silent vigil it was shaping up to be a beautiful summer evening.
Sean's attention was taken up by a different sort of beauty though. It wasn't hard to recognize and know people at the Stygian Lake Academy for Liberal Arts, after all there were only some thousand or so students attending it at any one time with maybe a fifth that many staff members. That was why the girl across the fire from him had caught his attention. Not only was she stunning in her white bikini, she was a new face though she didn't act like a freshmen. His guess was someone's girlfriend or relative visiting from another school for the summer. School was technically finished after all, except for tho
Finishing ItI watched as the blue blips appeared on the sensor screen, a feral smile crawling across my features. We'd found them. It had taken weeks of searching, but they'd not made it to the node yet. They were still here.Finishing It by SlingBlade87
"Convoy on scan."
I nodded avidly, my eyes affixed to the screens as our ships drew within range.
The Tactical Officer checked his systems. "In range of primary battery, main cannon online and within range. Shall I fire?"
"No, order the fleet to assume spear point positions. We're going to let them see us. Draw within range of secondary battery and engage."
There was a silence on the bridge as my officers considered what I'd just said. They were frightened, and well they should be considering who it was we hunted. In any other situation they'd be right to fear but the kajil were broken. These were the last known remnants of their people fleeing in transports from the scorching flame of humanity's purge. It was time to end this war and if that was done by genocide t
Battle at Proxima"Tactical, any change within the orbital zone?"Battle at Proxima by SlingBlade87
"No sir, all scopes showing clear. LIDAR shows no change in light patterns."
Captain Andrus Remora glared at nothing in particular and continued stalking in irritation about the deck of his bridge.
"Coms, read the orders if you would."
The Communications officer did so, reading in her sonorous voice the report in question which had been read now dozens of times since its reception.
"From, OUTLANCOM to, Remora, Andrus, C. Captain ESAS Heracles; Geldemming Treaty confirmed. Fed-Con War ended. Federation and Confederacy united as Confederation. United Commonwealth, Merchant Combine, and Farstar Republic are declared neutrals. Confederation aggression heightened. Travel to Proxima III and assume command of forces as Commodore, DESTDRON Seven. Defend at all costs until properly reinforced and/or relieved."
She looked up at him. "That's it sir."
Andrus nodded in annoyance. They wanted him to defend Proxima III, no issue there. The issue was tha

Lessons in GenestealersCommissar Mauricius stared at the class of commissar cadets before him. So young, so fresh faced, so ignorant of the terrors they would face on the battle field and the darkness they would have to confront.
“Do you know anything about Genestealers?” asked Commissar Mauricius.
“They’re Tyrannid creatures, sir,” answered one of the bright-faced cadets.
“They are scouts for the hive fleet. A Genestealer infestation is normally followed by the arrival of the Tyrannid hive fleet in nearby space. But sometimes the hive fleet can take centuries to show up. Space is vast. The Imperium encountered Genestealers long before the Tyrannids first appeared.”
The Genestealers moved so quickly. Before the lieutenant could even raise a weapon, a Genestealer had sliced open his chest with its claw.
Commissar Mauricius looked with horror at the monstrous xenos. Blood poured down the carapace that covered its slender body. It’s pink head
