The Annotated Sith Code:
A Christian Geek Ponders

This can't be.
I'm sure that's what some of you are thinking as you read this, stunned that I would actually draw anything good out of the Sith Code.  We all know what the Sith onscreen have done, and all of my fandom aside, I do not dismiss that.  Nor, for my Christian readers, do I set a work of fiction above the Word of God.  Though I draw great inspiration from the wonderful things that people create around me, I cannot be more clear on this fact: that it is above all a work of fiction.  It is a fictional work that I find useful as a memory aid to recall certain principles, but it remains firmly in its place as that and no more.  It is the Word of Go

SW: To Tread Upon Such Hollow Ground (ASoE)
Author's Note: Readers of Another Set of Eyes will recognize what is going on here in full.  However, I think others will enjoy this story as well, without any knowledge of my other stories or their characters.  I do have to warn everyone though...this story is NOT a friendly or pretty one, and especially not the feelings swirling around the tormented soul of one General Leia Organa.  In some moments, enough grief, pain, and betrayal can create a very ugly picture--things that in better times, we might be ashamed of. 
This is one of those moments.

"To Tread Upon Such Hollow Ground"
The ground rushes up to meet her--closer, closer,'s cracking open--the planet is cracking apart, this gutted crystalline sphere--

"Forever Is Who We Are"
Part 2: The Ethereal Counsel

It went without saying that my meditations were disturbed, and not just as Ashara, the former Jedi, would have it.  Even by the kinder judgment of the Sith, there was no other word for it.  I found it impossible to be still--equally impossible to move, to dance.  Even when one has learnt to thrive on a multitude of diverse passions as I have, it is about bloody well impossible to meditate when one can barely sustain the energy of a particular one for even a minute at a time.  And that is how it is when grief first seizes the spirit: the soul careens from one state to another seemingly at random...about the only thing like meditation I supposed I could manage was to simply taste this turbulence, name it for what it was.  Live with it. with it.
My heart warred between yearning for solitude and a desperate d

(POEM) Soliloquy of an Obsolescent Soul
Be still and know that I as well am Man,
Though indecorous in my thoughts and speech
I seem to those who willingly partake
In shackled tongues and stack-ranked claims to wail.
To you I seem a rough and calloused soul,
Depravity enfleshed, and cold beyond
All care, but did you ever pause to think
That what I hope to gain through all that seems
To bring hard trial is not to keep some down,
But in my greatest dreams raise high all those
Whose labor seems in vain?  Perhaps it's now
Passé to hint that that which hails from blood
Might still in some exotic sense spring forth
From spirits not wrought out of refuse, yet
Instead comprised of that same stuff that drives
The highest loves of all our fellow Men.
To some, I charge, I am become their sword
To wield some frightful day when crisis falls
Upon our heads, but then to cast as far
Away from cultured men as strength and spite
Allow, no more to look upon their world.
Do you not comprehend that I in all
That separates my nature from

SWTOR ItBotL: Forever Is Who We Are, Part 1 of 5

"Forever Is Who We Are"
Part 1: Master of the Dead

It is said about the Sith Order that to us there is no greater enemy than death itself, which some regard as the very antithesis of the Force we wield.  I cannot entirely disagree, for there is a strong sense of something disturbing, something corrupt in the process of dying, something that runs counter to every instinct: to survive, to love, to create beauty out of disparate things...all of these suffer a constant attack from the forces of mortality.  There is something hateful and cold in the ravages of death upon living things.  This I cannot deny, for to do so would be to deny that there is something precious, something worth defending, in life.
And yet I cannot help

SWTOR In the Burning of the Light:A Brother's Tale
I can only imagine the sort of Sith Talos Drellik would have become had the gift of wielding the Force come to him in lieu of his brother.  The other Drellik, as best as I understand from the little Talos has told me, swore off his family the instant he became an acolyte, like I had seen so many others do at the Academy once they began to see themselves as having been elevated above the common beast.
Having myself been one labeled as a beast, I told myself from the moment Overseer (hah, what a fitting title!) Harkun's goons tore me away from my father on Dromund Fels that I would not allow the burgeoning of my gift to diminish my memories and affections.  My father had not wielded the Force; still I loved him dearly.  But it was Talos Drellik who truly opened my eyes to what I, born in the slave pens, had never imagined a non-Force-wielder might do.
Oh, I'd seen the brutish sort of non-Force-wielder before--the sort like my navigator Andronikus Revel, debauched, vengeful

(SWTOR) In the Burning of the Light: Shatter Me
Ashara Zavros had been apprenticed to Sith Lord Tarssus Kallig for several months now--and she still didn't know what to make of the young human sometimes.  Or what he meant to her. 
Not that she hadn't dealt with his species before; hard to avoid that.  Master Ocera (Force rest him) had been human, albeit of a much more amply pigmented variant gentler on Togruta eyes at first...but it wasn't Kallig's pallor that lay at the root of her consternation, of course.  She'd learned that much as a Jedi Padawan after all.  Even if she'd chafed at some of her lessons, she certainly wasn't one to judge the man for a complexion that sometimes granted a bit more of a look at the veins and arteries beneath his skin than felt natural to Ashara. 
Looking past that to see him according to his species' standards--that was easy.  That was youngling stuff.  Literally, first-lesson youngling stuff.  Humans weren't that

In the Burning of the Light: The Alderaan Papers
Months have passed since my departure from Alderaan.  I have seen and done...much since then, not all of which sits easy with me.  Yet if there is one place that haunts me the most to think upon, it is Alderaan. 
Alderaan is undeniably one of the most beautiful worlds upon which the Sith Empire has a foothold--vast forests, rugged mountain terrain, and an enormous temperate area by human standards.  Even the weather is manageable--not the extremes of Dromund Fels and Tatooine, or Hoth, nor the devastating eternal storms of Dromund Kaas...and one must admit that despite the civil war that currently rages on the surface, the Alderaanians have largely done well by their planet, not filling it with poison like Quesh or stripping it of all things natural like Taris or Nar Shaddaa. 
But that well-manicured garden hides its bejeweled serpents.  Corruption and royal intrigue has spilled forth into outright war...and then there are the creatures of the caves, the K

Comments, Watches, and Favs

Please know that even if I have not individually thanked you for your watches or favs, I am grateful for the time you have spent browsing through my work. Please also know that if you comment, you ARE likely to get a response. It may be delayed, but I am not ungrateful and I will get back to you. :)

Stamps of Faith and Community
Stamps of Fandom and Fun
My stamps all live here to respect your bandwidth and your eyes. Enter at your own risk. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! ADVENTURE AWAITS! ;) :D

Main Works

I have two main works: Another Set of Eyes (Kylo Ren x Reader), an alternate universe story set in the time after Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and In the Burning of the Light, a collection of short vignettes based on the Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO storyline of the Light Sith Inquisitor.

My writing is also backed up at Archive Of Our Own.

Why do I write an X-Reader fic?

Well, the simplest answer is that telling me not to do something is pretty much equivalent to issuing me a challenge, when it comes to writing. ;) That's just a way to make sure I'll try my darned best at it. But if you're interested in more detail, check out this journal: X-Readers: How they're seen and why I do it anyway.

Wow.  Just finished writing Part 3 of 5 of "Forever Is Who We Are" in my journal and need to transcribe it.  I am very pleased with it and see no major editing in store, just minor wordsmithing during the transcription.  Which means I can now safely say we're less than a week out from my posting it, perhaps even sooner if I get on a real tear.  I definitely will not be making you wait all the way until Revenge of the Fifth for that.  (What, you thought I was going to go for that Jedi May the Fourth thing? ;) )

I do have a few things I need to catch up on though, such as bringing my Archive Of Our Own collection up to date after having let it sit for nearly nine months now, answering a few delayed notes and emails (one of you definitely knows who you are and while your patience is commended I am still sorry for these delays!), and throwing together an outline for a little fic I will be doing for MasterOf4Elements for Star Wars Month called "Castaway."

Thank you for both the fave and the very nice comment on 30 Days of Kylo Ren - The Force Comes First. I wish I could reply to you in a better and more detailed way, but I don't have any good idea for forming it right now and I don't want to delay it as well ^^;
