Un-Aligned Territory Galactic West
April 18th, 6199 C.E.
Klaus Straussfeld let out a contented sigh as he put his boots up on the highly polished surface of his teak desk and glanced around his almost sumptuously decorated office; dark wood paneling covered the walls and landscapes of dark foreboding woodlands hung from it; bookshelves and display cases also graced the exterior walls of the room and a small conference room and seating area occupied opposite sides of the other end of the room.
It had been over a year since the end of the 7th Pan-Galactic War and the debacle that Emperor Franz IX had made of it.
As it was Klaus himself had barely escaped being killed aboard the Kaiser and had also managed to turn things around a bit there at the end having disposed of his two most annoying foes; Ethan Masters and Raven Sikorsky.
“Oh yes,” Klaus thought to himself a smug smile curving his now unscarred face as the thought of the two thorns in his

After her speech, Noelle Shepard returned to her cabin to prepare what she is going to say to each member of her crew. She took a deep breath to compose herself. If this really was almost the end, it certainly didn’t feel like she’d thought it would. Her stomach was in knots and she felt like she was on the verge of tears. She thought she would feel victorious and celebratory. She was just afraid of what was to come. It was all so uncertain.
Shepard shook her thoughts and began inviting crew members up. First she spoke to Tali, Wrex, Liara, and Ashley. She discussed formal matters, like strategy, but she also spoke about personal matters. They all spoke about family, youth, and many other seemingly trivial topics. It made her fee
If Ariel was different....If Ariel was different.... by Everlasting90
My voice? You only "loved" me because of my voice?
I sold my voice for nothing, huh? I changed my fins to stupid legs for NOTHING!
You know my father and the schools would have a field day with this.
You would have married that octopus because she had my voice.
Being enchanted is not an excuse! LEGS, ERIC! LEGS!
If I sold my soul and you loved me for my soul, THAT would be romantic!
My voice? Really?
Break from Social MediaI've got to take a break from the virtual world.Break from Social Media by Everlasting90
I need to give my eyes rest from shameful distractions.
I get a headache from reading the news and gossip.
The constant arguing, shaming,assuming, and complaining is so trite.
I am tired of the internal fight with the indulger and restrainer.
I've got to take a break. It probably won't get any better.
WristwatchToday Mr. R. bought a new wristwatch. It took him a while, since there was a vast amount of watches to choose from, but in the end he was very satisfied with his pick.Wristwatch by BloodyMess-VaoT
After Mr. R. threw his old watch into the trash can, he couldn't help to think about it.
The old watch served him for over thirty years.
Every day its hands moved in circles for him.
Every day its hands showed him what time it was.
Sometimes it broke or became slow, then he turned it in for repair. After some hours the problem was solved and the watch was able to fulfill its purpose again.
The only thing that changed over the years was its wristband. It gave his watch some kind of special touch and made it look different from all the other watches.
Over the years the wristband became more and more expensive, but the watch itself became slow more and more frequent. Finally buying a new one was cheaper than repairing it over and over again.
Mr. R. wore the new watch only for a moment, before he threw it away and put the ol
Does peace require sacrifice?Does peace require sacrifices?Does peace require sacrifice? by Everlasting90
Is war secretly a blood ritual?
Are our sovereigns sorcerers?
Are casualties intentional offerings?
If spilling blood is not necessary,
what is needed to summon peace?
What have we been doing for centuries?

Tips For Art-Writing BlockWriter's and Artist's block--Everyone's nightmare. We've all been there, and if you haven't yet, then trust me, you will. So I decided to put together a little thing on what you can do to either stay out of a block or to get out of a block.Tips For Art-Writing Block by sonia555
Take a Break
So, haven't we all heard this one? Believe me, though. It is true. My dad always suggests when I'm on an artist's block to put it down for a day and write a story. Play a video game, read a book. Geez, study for that quiz on Wednesday! Do something else, as long as that something else doesn't involve getting you killed. Also, don't force yourself to draw or write something if you're on a block. Believe me, (I've tried) it'll turn out absolutely horrible. I suppose the only exception to this would be an art or writing homework assignment (For us students) that's due the next day.
Ok, I know above I said not to force yourself to draw. Perhaps I should've said something like, "Don't force you
On The Use Of DeathA little bit of helpful advice to those young padawan writers out there. The following applies to the writers of ALL prose, no matter what genre you're in, so listen up.On The Use Of Death by blizzardwolf1
Death in the use of storytelling is a very tricky thing, and I've seen plenty of writers and even filmmakers screw it up with the greatest of ease.
Now, please, don't get me wrong, death is a VERY powerful and emotionally motivating tool to use in prose, and can be the deciding factor in whether or not your story is cream or crap. By all means, it's there to be made use of, but you've got to remember that it's no arbitrary thing.
First of all, once you've made the decision to kill a characters, once it's been deemed by the events of your writing that an important person has to die, it has to have meaning behind it, or at least surrounding it. Either they've nobly sacrificed their lives for their loves and comrades, or they've become so depressed and withdrawn they finally turn to suicide for an escape, or their death h
Writing Paranormal CharactersAs a writer of prose, you may at some point to want to write about a character or characters which are paranormal. We could perhaps debate over the exact definition of the word paranormal, and some may prefer supernatural - a word more closely associated with magic, whereas paranormal tends to be taken to mean something outside the realms of science (though of course, it is not as clear-cut as that, and you may like to think that I am wrong in saying this).Writing Paranormal Characters by simplyprose
For the purposes of this guide, both paranormal and supernatural refer to conscious beings, not found in the animal kingdom, that differ in some way to what I controversially call normal humans (some paranormal beings may be human, in part or in whole). To give some well-known examples: ghosts, vampires, witches, werewolves and mermaids all fall into this category. The details, of course, are up to the writer. If you t

|Below you will find the name of all, current, official critiquers ((Which, you must admit, sounds a lot better than Critics. Plus, it better describes our intent.))|
These Critiquer's are the awesome few who have volunteered their time in order to go through the various pieces of literature, drawing, or, other, in order to offer their own constructive critiques. Any member of DA, whether admin, group member, or simply a watcher, may volunteer.
However, anyone asking (rather than getting invited) to be a Contributor to this group must volunteer, or otherwise prove that they're offering something special to the group.
If you feel like your art has been overlooked, feel free to note one of those below - but do try to remember that they don't all have as much free time as i do.
