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

Chapter 2 part 2
I shot up straight in my bed. Untangling myself from the binds... “Ah.” I sighed, just my bed sheets. I face palmed myself trying to shake the sleep from my eyes and out of silent humiliation. Wow I really have to stop watching thrillers at night.
I thought. Surveying the room, I found homework piled up on my little desk, unwashed clothes pooling out of the pink laundry hamper, and my movie posters slightly crooked. My mom has this weird quirk where every time she sees my room she would tell me, “Oh I see the homeless people are sharing a room with you!” Or,” wow I see the robbers have visited again.” This was pretty much her way to lightly say, that my room looked like a tornado hit it. Wow, my back is really wet... did it rain in my room? Begrudgingly, I got out of my bed and looked in my full length mirror. My hair looked like birds had made a home in it, and my pajamas where soaked in sweat.

Chapter 2 part 1
I was running recklessly. Fear causing my muscles to push harder against the ferocious wind that seemed to force the air from my burning lungs. I could feel the trickle of warm blood pulsing from a strange wound in my shoulder. I have to find shelter and patch…whatever caused this. I slowed down to a fast walk and searched for a place to rest safely. I could hear something in the distance... A crow was shrieking out. The sound was terrifying and un-animal like. It reminded me of a person screaming out in agony.
All of the sudden, I felt a hot heavy breath blow on the back of my neck. I froze. Before I could turn around, I felt large hands grasp my arms and pin them against my back. I heard a throaty laugh chuckle behind me. I could smell a foul odor, which chilled me to the bone and sent fear shocking though my limbs. The captor forced me easily to my knees, which cried out in burning exhaustion. I felt myself blacking ou
The Sun Never Shined In My WorldI sit on the cold, wet porch,The Sun Never Shined In My World by GraceUponGrace
My lifeless eyes look up at the sky,
Hoping to find the light.
But it never came.
It never shone, not a single shard.
A sullen world of the darkest blues, humanity filled with malignance.
The cold, sharp rain beats down on my battered skin, crimson trickling down.
In the end, the sun never smiled,

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.))|

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.
