Jedi Knight Kaladin has been plagued by a disturbance in the Force since
the Sith murdered his brother. It draws him to a derelict space station
where he must choose between what he wants and what is right.
Notes: I have no self control and also this is the most self-indulgent thing I’ve written in a very long time, so I apologize for nothing. Suffer with me, nerds.
“No signs of life,” Kaladin translated the
binary beeps of his astromech as she scanned the derelict wreckage of
the space station before them. He leaned forward to glance out of the
viewport as he punched the button to dislodge his small ship from the
hyperspace ring. He frowned, closing his eyes and reaching out with his
senses—there had to be a reason the Force had sent him here, of all
“Check again, please, Syl,” he said, agitated. The Force revealed nothing to his curious prodding, but there was something off
about this place. Something…uncomfortable. SYL-4NA chirped as her
scan finished, and Kaladin sighed. Her repeated scan had the same
results as the first one. “Guess we’re doing this the old-fashioned way,
you can tell that a coming out storyline was written by a straight person if one character says to the closeted character “its 2017″ as if homophobia ended when macklemore died in that thrift store. sorry to break it you karen but homophobia still kills lgbt+ people in the year twenty seventeen lmfao
Zooplankton may be the smallest species in the freshwater food chain, but they play a big role in preserving our lakes, streams and wetlands. That’s one of the reasons why IBM joined forces with the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and The FUND for Lake George to create the Jefferson Project at Lake George to understand and protect freshwater ecosystems. Recently they studied the effects road salt has on a species of zooplankton. Road salt usage has increased 50-fold since 1940, and bodies of freshwater are increasing in salinity because of it. Using IBM technology, the researchers monitored zooplankton in varying levels of salinity and found that the organisms were capable of evolving a higher tolerance to the salt. This is good news for the ecosystem since the loss of plankton could have cascading effects throughout the food chain. See, small can be mighty too.

Among the numerous illegal activities the Black family were involved in, this particular tradition took place when one came of age, and began the process of becoming an illegal animagus.
Of course, Sirius Black doesn’t wait seventeen years. He befriends a quiet boy whose eyes are too old and have too many secrets, and when these secrets are revealed, it is Sirius who knows what he needs to do. It is Sirius who steals heavy books from the section of the family library cloaked in dark spells. It is Sirius who recruits two other boys into his Black family tradition, only it isn’t just tradition anymore, and this is a different kind of family.
Walburga Black spoke with poison her whole life, and occasionally she killed with it too. A second cousin who put his hands where they were not granted. A house elf who heard secrets not meant for her ears. A healer who failed to save her daughter, barely two hours old and two years before she named her son after the brightest star in the sky. The bite of a black widow is not usually fatal to humans, but Walburga had always been a particularly venomous person, as her husband would often rage at her. She would rage back and remind him what spiders did to their mates once they had no use of them.
Orion Black wore the curved horns of a ram like a crown of armour, but they were useless when protecting his family name, the name he married his own blood for in order to keep pure. He preferred brute force over reason, which was effective when used to inflict fear and pain. Yet fear and pain were weak motivators when it came to blood traitor sons and crazed spouses. Orion was the leader of a flock scattered far across a field, and he did nothing when the wolves came howling.
Ten months after Regulus Black turns seventeen and ten months after the Dark Mark is branded in to his skin, he transforms into a sleek black cat in the middle of Grimmauld Place, surrounded by men in masks. Of course, Sirius hears about it eventually. He jokes how they always fought like cat and dog, but cannot bring himself to laugh. In many cultures, black cats are considered a bad omen, guardians of death. A year after he transforms, Regulus Black is drowned in a cave by an army of the dead, where he guards them forever.
