Morning, all!

Star Wars The Old Republic

Imperial Spy


I'm rather tired of Taris. Lol.

Republic Spaceport on Taris. I'm about to do some damage here. :P

Just realized the Republic tends towards browns while the Empire goes with gray.

You'll have to click for the bigger pic to see her, but my least favorite Sith looks to have been captured by Jedi. Humble Pie coming her way. Hee!

Yes, here she is cowering in shame after I've dispatched those holding her prisoner. Not that she'll ever thank me.

A couple of the Jedi Masters still glowed after they died. Very unusual. Must admit my companion, Thana, and I did fight well together.

Here she is. Got an opportunity to kill her at the end of this, but didn't. Though she didn't thank me directly, she allowed the helpless civilians in the shuttle to escape when I asked, rather than leave the bay doors closed as she wanted and watch them explode. Hopefully I will not come to regret my decision. :P

Mid explosion footage of my acts of sabotage. :) First a walker.

Then a shuttle.

Nice little building in the same area. Looking to finish the last bonus mission on this series.

Another area in the same building.

Don't think I'd gotten a good pic of this little beastie before.

Taris is finally complete! I've left its atmosphere. Then had a major seizure in my ship. The old agent I stopped from escaping a planet or two ago implanted a partial copy of himself in my brain. He says the seizure is not from the nanos from the Republic but from brainwashing I received from my own people long before that. I'm not liking the sound of that. But this is the Empire...

Have an awesome Sunday!

The King is Dead! Long Live the Undead King!

"What are you implying?"

The magister glided forward and scrunched down beside him.

"That in order to bathe, you must first actually get into the bath."

It took everything from her, except revenge!

The muscles in my right arm jerked from tension as I tried to make it move and it resisted. A shrill scream inside my head insisted I didn't want to do this. That if I did, there'd be no way to take it back. "I...I'm afraid."


(2011) Young Adult – Fantasy

Which is worse…the monster without or within?


Home—family—the two things he would never have, the two things forever denied him…because of her.

Anger welled inside him, the heat of it suffusing him to the core, gurgling with seething emotions the total opposite of the coolness splashing down from the fountain nearby. Before he realized what he was doing, Jarrin stepped inside the gazebo.

“Harry Potter meets Dragon Riders of Pern”


“Do you need any help?” she asked. “Just tell me what you want me to do. If you prefer, I’m sure I can round up at least a few people to come over and give you a hand.”

Kel slowly shook his head. “It’s all right. Thanks anyway.” His voice lowered to where she almost couldn’t hear it. “This is all part of my punishment.’

She frowned, not understanding what he meant. “Punishment?”

Kel cocked his head in Clarence’s direction. In a flash, she understood. None of this was an accident. Clarence had landed there deliberately, hoping to make Kel pay for all he went through in the past month. She shook her head, not wanting to believe this, but what the dragon said next took any doubts right out of her head.

(2008) Young Adult – Fantasy
“To save the world she must DIE! Or must she?”


Panic and fear filled with utter helplessness made her dizzy. She knew what would be done with her, she knew what they planned. But there was nothing she could do to stop any of it.

Sharp gasps echoed in her ears as she felt the room’s cold air caress the Eye.

“You were right. She is the one.”

(2002) Adult/YA – Japanese Fantasy Adventure
“The Last Samurai meets Pirates of the Caribbean”


Laying the blade on the floor before him, Toshi parted his kimono until his stomach lay exposed. He tucked his sleeves beneath his legs to hold him upright if he should falter. Ignoring Asano, he took up the blade. His shoulder flared with pain and he tried not to flinch, as he grabbed the blade with both hands. He turned the wakizashi until its sharp point was aimed at his belly, the residence of his soul.

(2004) Adult/YA – Fantasy Mystery
“He tried to forget his past, but his past wouldn’t forget him”


Torren took a step back a sudden shudder racking through him. It was as if he’d never left, as if the boy he’d been would be coming back-though the one who’d loved this room and all these things was long, long dead. That boy died when he’d watched his father’s blood pour forth from his mouth, the end of a sword protruding from his abdomen. That boy died when he survived while everyone else lay dead.
