As a companion piece to my previous diagram, here is the Imperial Senate at the time of its dissolution in 0 BBY/ABY.


- Galactic Integralist Party (1136 seats): After the formation of the Empire, the reactionary elements of the Expansion and Republican Parties, as well as the Core Alliance, took control of and merged the three parties, forming the Galactic Integralist Party. Senators from the Liberal and Corporate Parties soon defected to the new political alliance as well, sensing the opportunity for favorable treatment in the New Order. Also commonly called the Imperialist Party, the GIP is far-right and fervently pro-Empire, promoting expansion of the Empire’s borders and consolidation of the Emperor’s powers. Elections in sectors controlled by the GIP are more often than not marred by voter suppression and electoral fraud, giving the party a permanent majority. Without any true legislative power, the GIP’s constant majority in the Senate serves to present an image of popular support for Emperor Palpatine’s policies, an image fewer and fewer believe every day. The GIP is led in the Senate by Orn Free Taa, formerly of the Liberal Party.

Official Opposition

- Progressive Party (892 seats): After the rise of the Empire, as the Liberal Party fell apart due to opportunistic Senators defecting to the GIP, the Progressive Party founded by Padme Amidala and Bail Organa began to grow into a large and robust organization as the horrors of the Empire became apparent. Energized by a rebellious spirit, Progressive Senators are known for their fiery proclamations of dissent in the Senate chambers themselves, and despite the party’s inability to actually stop any of Palpatine’s policies, the citizens of Progressive sectors view it as the last hope for a peaceful restoration of the Republic. Palpatine views the Progressive Party as a useful tool, channeling public anger and frustration at his rule into a toothless and powerless outlet, rather into militant rebel cells which pose an actual threat. Many Progressive Senators also secretly serve as the civilian government of the Rebel Alliance. The Progressive Party is jointly led by Mon Mothma and Leia Organa.

- Constitutionalist Party (51 seats): Officially a part of the opposition coalition, the Constitutionalist Party’s decline continued under the Empire, and at the time of the Imperial Senate’s dissolution it has reached its nadir in terms of representation in the Senate. The Constitutionalist Party’s continued presence in the Senate is due mostly to strong support from the Empire’s autonomous regions, such as Bothan and Herglic space. The Constitutionalist Party is led by Polo Se’lab of Bothawui.

Other Opposition Parties

- Liberal Party (30 seats): The Liberal Party continues to exist as a remnant of its former self. With its centrist, progressive, and conservative wings all splitting from the party, the Liberals have only limped along on the strength of their social liberal wing. The Liberals are opposed to the Empire, but condemn violent rebellion, deluding themselves into believing in the possibility of convincing Palpatine to restore the Republic peacefully. In fact, the greatest amount of resistance to the Empire that the Liberals have put up is a proposal to change the party’s name to the Liberal Democratic Party, to demonstrate its commitment to democracy. The proposal was ultimately voted down. The Liberal Party is led by Pooja Naberrie of Naboo.

- Anti-Jedi Party (12 seats): The reactionary Anti-Jedi Party briefly enjoyed a surge of support in the wake of the supposed coup attempt by the Jedi against Palpatine, but as the Jedi Purge progressed and the GIP arose as a larger reactionary party with greater official support, the AJP lost much of its purpose. The AJP found new life in opposition to the Empire, thanks to a rumor begun by former AJP Senator Chelo that Emperor Palpatine was, in fact, a secret Jedi. The party’s continuing hardline conservatism, however, has failed to win it much support. The AJP is led by James Ortell Donovan of Mindabaal.

- Reform Party (6 seats): Although he was a founding member of the Progressive Party, Senator Garm Bel Iblis realized that concentrating all of Emperor Palpatine’s political opponents into one party was a dangerous proposition, and left the Progressives to join the Reform Party, even as many Reformers were defecting to the Progressives. The Reform Party soon reunited with its Radical offshoot, and the current Reform Party offers a louder, more aggressive, and more radical vision of resistance and rebellion than the Progressives, partially an attempt by Bel Iblis to distract Palpatine’s attention from Progressive leaders who pose more of a threat. The Reform Party is led by Garm Bel Iblis of Corellia.

Sword Fighting For Fic Writers: Chapter 1

It’s going to take me another day or two to finish the full guide, so I’m going to start posting these in chapters. I will continue to post one chapter a day, and also post the full guide as one monster post when it’s done. I may refer to future chapters in these, those will be turned into links as chapters become available.

You can follow the tag #Swords for Fics if you want to keep up without following me :) There will be around 12 chapters or more.

My background: Hey there! I’ve been training in the Italian method of sword fighting for about 7 or 8 months now. So I’d say I’m still quite the novice but I’ve learned a lot and I’d like to share some of that with you all! I’ve trained with two handed swords, one handed swords, sword and buckler, dual swords, dagger, spears, quaterstaff, and poleaxe. (Not rapiers though, sorry.) I also have a “writing” background in animation and illustration.

What’s this for?: As I discovered when trying to storyboard a fight a year ago, action scenes are a pain to write when you don’t know your options. There are a ton of great fics out there with great swashbuckling adventure, and you all do an amazing job at bringing out the most important part of any fight: how the characters feel about it. And while that’s often all you need for good story telling, this is for writers who want to spend more time playing in that action.

Terminology?: There’s a lot of terminology in sword fighting that the general audience won’t understand, or may not even share the same names depending on the school of sword fighting. I’ll be using some terminology as I learned it, but will mostly try to describe things in layman’s terms.

Though a rapier could be considered a one handed sword, it is used differently and I don’t have sufficient knowledge to go in depth for them. 

So let’s get started!

1: Dumb Ways to Die  2.May Your Blade Be True! 3.On Your Guard!
4. Making the Cut 5.Stick ‘em With the Pointy End 6.It’s Like a Dance

He’s a forensic expert so he treads on the toes of much of what Barry is good at. Hence they have a slightly abrasive relationship at first. I say abrasive, but I meanthat - clearly because of the events of the season - none of the relationships that Barry has had with other cast members is the same. He’s not familiar with me, but I’m familiar with him, so it’s an odd dynamic. It seems like a love/hate thing at first.

Ego - Jefferson x Reader

Prompt: “His ego is so visible; I can almost watch it grow.” x Jefferson

TW: “Uptight bitch” is something that’s said but that’s about it.

Notes: Cliffhanger!! Part 2 if it’s wanted.

A/N: I’m actually updating when I need to wow. For future reference, and I’ll post an official post in a bit of the schedule. I update on Thursdays and Sundays. The rest of the days are my writing days. Look out for a collab on a Wednesday of every month. I’ll post more in depth but that’s the gist.

Word Count: 696

“-Political parties weren’t even supposed to last… -They just made the president’s job harder…”

At this point your eyes were rolled so far back into your head, you wondered if they’d ever come back out. This man was insufferable.

“Jefferson, do us all a favor and shut up” You snapped. He only rolled his eyes and continued talking, irritating you even more.

You leaned to your best friend, Alex, “His ego is so visible; I can almost watch it grow,“ you whispered. Alex snorted in response and choked back a laugh when he caught a glimpse of something. Alex nodded his head toward what caught his eye. You followed his eyes and there it was. In all its glory.

You snickered, “His ego isn’t the only thing I can see growing.”

“(Y/L/N), is there something you’d like to say to me?” Thomas hissed.

“Look down, Jefferson. I see speaking your unwanted and unasked for opinion really gets you going.”

You watched his eyebrows knit together as he looked down, his confidence faltering for a second before his infamous smirk rose from his lips to hide his embarrassment.

“You know you want me, Darlin’.”

At that remark you burst out laughing. After the very anticipated ring of the bell, class was over. Thomas hadn’t shut up and even the teacher’s patience was wearing thin, but you needed his help for class, so you weren’t quite done with him yet.

“Jefferson- I need to talk to you,” you called to him. His cocky smirk spread across his face as he made his way toward you.

“You called? It’s nice to see me, the pleasure is yours. How may I assist you?” He asked much too confidently. God, the arrogant ass he was.

“Shut up for a second, will ya?” You said exasperatedly, “ As much as I’d rather not ask this, you’re probably the best in this class and I need help studying.”

“What’s in it for me?” He bit his lip, looking you up and down.

“Quality time with me, myself, and I. Come on, the test is in three days and I can’t waste any time,” you responded, grabbing his wrist and dragging him along.

He chuckled, “Eager.”

A few hours later, you still hadn’t gotten much done. Thomas was on his phone and not really offering much advice while you were pouring over your notes, trying to figure out what the important parts.

“Off my bed, Jefferson, I don’t know where you’ve been. If you’re going to sit on your phone not even being useful to me right now, why’d you agree to come?” You started to rant, frustrated and stressed.

“(Y/N), chill out for one second will you? You asked me to help you study for the government final.”

“I did ask you. You agreed and you’re not even helping like you said you would!”

You felt anger bubble inside of you when you heard him mumble something about you being an ‘uptight bitch’.

“What’d you just call me?”

“An uptight bitch,” he said all too nonchalantly, “loosen up a li-.” Before he could finish, you had cut him off by roughly attaching your lips to his. You could feel him smirk before his arm snaked around your waist, pulling you even closer. He was a good kisser, you’ll give him that.

You pulled away, panting a little because damn did that boy know how to take a girl’s breath away.

“Why do you hate me so much?” He questioned, looking almost vulnerable, a hint of hurt evident in his eyes.

“I don’t hate you. You just annoy the hell out of me. With your hard, loud, open opinions and your stupid gorgeous face, and hair, and your body, and-” you stopped with a sigh, “I don’t hate you. If I’m honest I actually find you extremely attractive.” You let the words tumble from your lips, silently wishing you knew how to shut up.

“Give me a chance, (Y/N). I may be an arrogant dick in school but I know how to treat a lady such as yourself. You’re beautiful and you deserve to be treated like a queen. Please,” he almost whispered the word ‘please’ which made your gaze soften.

Random Dialogue

Ya know how sometimes when you’re brainstorming something to write and you’ll get a bunch of cool scenes/snippets, but not know how to string them together?

That happens to me a lot, but with dialogue. I’ll have this brilliant, well-thought out exchange, I can picture it exactly in my head. But I won’t have any good context for it.

A couple of tidbits from my brain today I thought you guys would like to hear, mostly they fit into Undertale and it’s respective AU’s but you could use them for most anything if you change the names, I suppose.

“Sans do you even have a plan?!?!”

“depends on what qualifies as a plan.”


“stay alive?”


”oh god i’m sorry!”

“S’fine, shouldn’t have startled you”

“paps! i punched you in the face!”

“Sans, seriously. You have the upper body strength of a gerbil, it didn’t even hurt.”




“Do you know anything about the giant hole in the stair railing? Ya know, the one suspiciously your-head-shaped?”


“…… Did you get your head stuck in the railing again?”


Oh my goodness so um…I’m getting quite a bit of teacher related questions XD More than I thought people would care to know, haha? Plus I have questions from a while ago that I didn’t know when to answer AND a lot of repeated questions…so if it’s alright with ya’ll, I’m just gonna make one big post to answer those and then just refer people back to said big post in the future :) That way I’m not constantly flooding ya’ll’s feeds with non-FE related asks, but I’m also not ignoring the people who took the time to ask :)

So I guess if you have any questions related to that feel free to ask them now if you’d like me to address it? I’ll make the post sometime today when I’m off work :)

For future reference: If Donald Dump ends up getting impeached, that doesn’t absolve his supporters from the consequences of having supported him in the first place.

Nobody dare say “he’s not president anymore so don’t blame us!” because if you supported him in the first place you already revealed exactly how shitty a person you really are.

So no, if I ended a friendship with you and he ends up getting impeached in the end, I’m not resuming our friendship. You knew exactly who you were voting for and by helping put him in power you contributed to the harm of every innocent person hurt because of him and there’s no taking that back.

If he gets impeached, you’re still guilty for giving him power in the first place.

fieryflyingpanda replied to your post “ACTUALLY, mercy is presumed, not confirmed in anyway, to have had role…”

There’s a voice line (deleted or not I’m not sure) where when she rezs reaper, he had a chance to say “At least you got it right this time” and that’s where the leading theories stem from.

oh man yeah!! i forgot about that!! also, in the Old Soldiers comic, there’s this (here’s a link in case it’s a little blurry! it’s on page 8 i think!!):

  • REPORT 2:  Project Gestalt is on the move but clearly people aren’t very happy about it. Why would they be? Getting your ‘soul’ ripped out of your body doesn’t sound appealing. But Hamelin wanted to make it appealing to others, so they set up a PRD.
  • REPORT 3:  The Replicant system made to house human genetic data in replicative vessels is confirmed to be near completion.
  • REPORT 8:  Project Gestalt is a go, but it seems civilians aren’t aware of the process itself, just that it’s labelled as a ‘life rehabilitation program’. Hamelin higher ups — knowing that the Project is still seeing imperfections — sets up countermeasures to prevent this information from leaking in order to avoid civilian panic.
    • It should be noted that the dates they are using refer to NieR RepliCant and not Gestalt.
  • They’re basically just throwing information that we already know from researching the first game.
    • Leads into the ultimate plot element that everyone’s been questioning: if after the events of NieR humans were meant to go extinct, how was it possible for humans to go to the moon?
    • THE TRUTH:  Humans were never on the moon to begin with. Humanity has been extinct for centuries. Certain upper Androids  ( esp the Commander )  just made everyone believe that they still existed. But for what reason?

bts references the 2013 movie Snowpiercer, in which a dystopian future exists where the entire world is snow, and the humans remaining live on a constantly moving train. on the train, the people are separated by class. those who live in the “poor” cars at the tail of the train have very little to live off of and those who live in the “rich” cars live in luxury. 

Respond to "The Problems with Proxies"

I’m glad the “Problem with Proxies” post was put up because it does bring up some problems with the fandom.

A lot of them either “don’t know what their purposes are” or “believe they’re the Chosen One™”. But, if you want to use Slenderman/The Operator to the full extent, we know that’s FAR from true.

Most of the fandom think Slenderman/The Operator is a cruel creature, but “kind to his proxies”. Proxies become less manipulated and more equals to this entity. It’s less “I’m controlling you, and I’m using you” and more “you’re my trusted soldier who I will protect ALWAYS~”

And then we get the ROMANCE™.

And it just goes downhill from there. 

I’m sorry, but if Slenderman/The Operator is using humans of all things to push its agenda, and if most of its victims are humans, then there’s little chance that it cares for its proxies.

So why would it use them?

That’s where creators lack in imagination. They only see the “slender tall bald guy in a suit” appearance Victor Surge created. Rarely do people take away from that and actually add some sort of background to it. This thing could be a demon, an alien, HELL – it COULD have been human at some point (which could explain using human servants).

There’s so much room to give this entity background, since there’s little to go on it officially (some would say there are “rules” because of Marbles Hornet, but I say go off of Victor Surge’s ambiguous implications). Make something up, and add to this entity’s personality.

Is it manipulative? Will it use someone’s precious memories against them? Is it a lowly demon that’s powerful, yes, but can do little in our realm? Is Slenderman/The Operator just LAZY?

So much room for interpretation (though honestly, you can also just create your own entity). And this goes to proxies as well. 

Bargle just brought up a good point that also relates back to my idea on Slender Cults: 

“Why do your empowered servants seem to all be mentally-ill teenage goths? What possibly could they bring to the table? Why not recruit PTSD-rattled soldiers? Corrupt businessmen? Academics? Celebrities? Politicians? It seems like they’d be much more effective at enforcing your agenda.”

Yeah. Why would you want to use humans like KIDS and TEENAGERS that have little influence when you can use people with so much media coverage, power, and influence? Hell, the entity could use the President of an entire country if it wanted to. Just to show that this thing can affect anyone. 

C'mon people, focus less on what’s popular and focus on how you can be creative with this interpretive entity. If worse comes to worse, and you can’t think of anything, MAKE YOUR OWN ENTITY.

It’s that easy. 

First off, Slenderman and the Operator are two completely different things. MH has been said by the creators to be completely separate from every other Slenderman ARG (unless it turns out ECKVA’s in the same universe), so proxies do not exist in MH. You want to look at proxies? Try TribeTwelve.

Remember kiddos, Slenderman wants meat puppets to do his bidding, not an edgy teenager or a girlfriend.
