Starwars Fanfiction Rogues Chapter 2 Part 4Chapter 2: Revelations; Part 4
The day of the Boonta Eve pod race has come at last. Kyshin has made bets with several dozen
gambling spectators, totaling up to around 550,000 Wupiupi. Jesyn has assisted Lorin in refitting
her pod racer with Droideka deflector shields on key points, resolving to acquire another
Droideka in battle at a later date. "Only one other human has ever won on this track I'm told."
Auran says. "Only one other human has ever flown a pod racer. He turned out to be a Jedi." Lorin
replies with a smile. The signal is given to move the racers out onto the track. As Lorin sets up
her equipment, Kyshin pokes his head into the cabin. "See that guy in the red racer?" He asks.
Lorin looks up to see a Malastarian in a bloodshot pod racer that she is all too familiar with. "I
know him; he's never lost a race." Lorin says. "I wagered on him to crash." Kyshin says. Lorin
puts on her racing goggles as the countdown begins. Kyshin, Jesyn and Auran take their trackside
seats to wa
Apocalypse Aftermath Ep. 4 The WildsWalking. I remember walking. I don't remember how far or how long, only that my legs are burning
from walking. As all 3 of us collapse of exaustion, I look up and see that we are completely
lost. We are out in the middle of nowhere. The sun is directly overhead, but it is cold. The
landscape is grassland, each blade having a tiny bit of frost on it. Tessa starts shivering and
clings to me. "How far?" Jack says, bundling up his coat. I look at the map, but I have no way
of knowing how far we've walked. "I don't know how far. I don't know where we are." I say as I
toss the map back to him. Tessa starts tearing up. She was always so brave in battle, not even
flinching but to squeeze the trigger when we were ambushed by zombies one time. I guess it was
because she knew what was going on, everything was under control. Now, we have no control. We're
lost, and we all know it.
After a while, the sun starts going down. We keep going in the same direction we were, desperatly
trying to reach Area
Apocalypse Aftermath Ep. 3 Compromise"GOD DAMMIT SOLDIER!!! What the hell do you think you're doing?! You've just compromised our
entire operation, I should have you torn to shreds!" Yells the leader of the colony. The man
he is screaming at is crying. Our leader is yelling so loud that I almost have to hold my
ears; he's in such a panicked fury as I've never witnessed before, even toping that time he
had to save me from a pack of homodrones. "Alright, get me a microphone." He says, storming
off. Everyone in the main area runs off to their rooms, fully aware of protocol. "Attention
all inhabitants: our position has been compromised, grab everything you can transport and
begin the evacuation." He says, his voice booming over the intercom. Everyone begins the calm
but hurried process of stripping the base. There are almost 50 of us, plenty of people to
carry most of the base equipment. Everything we have is modular, and in a matter of minutes
we are packed and ready to run.
There are several dozen exits to our complex and i
Apocalypse Aftermath Ep. 2 True FeelingsI wake up in my bed to find Tessa lying beside me. "What the - ?" I say in a moment of
flustered panic, then I realize that we both have our clothes on. "Hm..." She says softly,
being awakened by my voice. "You slept with me all night?" I ask. She sits up and rubs her
eyes, suddenly popping awake when she realizes that she fell asleep beside me. "Um..." She
says, having the same panic moment I just did. "It's okay, nothing happened." I say. We both
get up and she leaves, going to her own room. "Great; if anyone finds out about this,
there'll be rumors to high heaven." I say to myself as I change my clothes.
Jack meets us a breakfast, and he has a wicked grin on his face. "Why were you in his room
this morning?" He asks Tessa. She gets a look of panic and blushes hard. "Jack, we just fell
asleep together, nothing happened." I say. He makes an expression as if to say "Yeah, right".
It is no secret that Tessa and I have a certain fondness for each other. "Seriously, dude,
Apocalypse Aftermath Ep. 1 World of ChaosI am crouching behind a pile of shattered concrete with my friends Tessa and Jack. The
sky is grey and the ravaged landscape is dark. The charred husks of gigantic buildings
stand around us. I peak out over the concrete wall and see a large open square between
skyscrapers. I see a hint of motion across the square. We are engaged in a deadly game
of cat and mouse. I know that there is a monkey drone somewhere looking for us. "Here
we go; I draw them out, you cover me." I say. Both of them nod and ready their guns.
Tessa has a laser rifle and Jack has a gattling gun. I take out my own weapon, a high-
tech piece of equipment that comprises a swordlike hilt attached to a plexiglass bar.
It uses a Continuum Reactor in the endcap to draw energy out of the universe itself to
power a series of tesla coils in the grip. These coils envelop the pelxiglass bar in a
sheath of lightning, allowing me to cut through just about anything; It's called a
Lightning Saber. I built this one myself and I am v
Apocalypse AftermathWe were once a great people. We had power, order, safety... everything we thought we
could want.Then our technology turned on us. Our weapons of radiation, chemicals and
mircobes, our weapons of robots and drones, our genetically engineered organisms built
to aid us... we were no longer their masters, but their victims. The Great Human Purge
was launched by a new civilization of AI drones holding the reigns of our genetically
modified beasts. My race lost the war. That was decades ago. I only know of what happened
through the stories, and I have no way of knowing if it is true. All I know is that I
cannot afford to be careless. Every dark hole could house a deadly threat. Either a
robot, a strange beast or a pool of something toxic. Every shot we take is one less
shot we have. Every bullet must find its target. I'm with my friends, but we all know
how fast a life can end in this world.
