rising master

remember when damen was judging torveld and lazar real hard in the beginning of the series bc laurent was the object of their affections??? they could hardly look at anyone else and damen couldnt wrap his head around the idea?? “that a man of torvelds honorable reputation would choose laurent as the object of his affections was difficult to swallow, but perhaps torveld admired reptiles” jokes on u

Sorry for being awesome, losers

Chirrut’s face is blank when he’s told the news. Baze can’t detect any hint of emotion on his usually mobile features. Irreversible. Permanent blindness within six months. No known cure. The healer trails awkwardly to a stop and hesitates, glancing at Baze for his cue.

Baze shifts his weight. “Chirrut?”

“All is as the Force wills it,” Chirrut says, and rises. “Thank you, Master T’ron.”

He turns and is gone before the healer can reply, robes swishing in finality.

Baze gives the healer an awkward nod and scrambles to catch up. “Chirrut, wait.”

Chirrut glances at him when Baze falls in step beside him. His eyes are cloudier these days, the cataracts advancing ever more rapidly, it seems, but Chirrut’s feet are still quick and unhesitating, his stride as confident as ever.

“We have lessons,” he says when Baze can’t think of anything to fill the silence.

“But—don’t you want to—” Baze hesitates. Grieve? Mourn your loss? You’re going blind, Chirrut!

Chirrut’s face shutters. “I want to go to class.”

He quickens his steps and Baze gets the message.

“You aren’t the only one to grow up on the killing fields. War is a cruel parent, but an effective teacher.

Its final lesson is carved deep in my psyche: that this world, and all of its people, are diseased.

Free will is a myth. Religion is a joke.

We are all pawns of something even greater: memes, the DNA of the soul. They shape our will.

They are the culture.

They are everything we pass on.

Expose someone to anger long enough, they will learn to hate.

They become a carrier. Envy, greed, despair: all memes, all passed on.

You can’t fight nature, Jack.

Wind blows, rain falls, and the strong prey upon the weak.

Sam tells me you see your weapon as a "tool”: something that saves lives, a means of justice. Now, there’s a pretty meme! Exquisite!

It spared you the burden of all the lives you’ve taken, absolved you of guilt when you enjoyed it.“

Being an Exo in Rise of Iron: Day 5
  • Human Titan: Damn, I hate Aksis! With his stupid SIVA storm gun! Why do the Fallen even worship him? This "Machine God". Machines are not meant to be worshipped, they are meant to serve.
  • Exo Hunter: You know, you worship the Traveler and it's a giant space machine.
  • Human Titan: How dare you! The Traveler, our one and only saviour, is a being of Light! Not some stupid hunk of metal! He actually has thoughts and feelings unlike those dumb machines like Aksis and Rasputin.
  • Exo Hunter: Yeah *tear* those dumb robots. T_T

Araknea Spinnerette- Hide your silk, hide your Tundras.

Araknea Swarmkeeper- Woe to the dragon who mistakes this highly venomous Araknea for a mushroom.

Females are done for now. Don’t judge my text okay, I just put whatever, bleh. If anyone has suggestions for the text for the males so they don’t sound so LAME…………

Being an Exo in Rise of Iron: Day 2
  • Lord Saladin: We wanted to use SIVA to build cities, advance our weaponry, fortify our borders. Rasputin responded.
  • Awoken Warlock: Wow, so the Warmind prevented the advancement of mankind. Turned against its own creators. These machines cannot be trusted.
  • Human Titan: Its purpose was to protect mankind, not have its own agenda. Truly, these machines should be destroyed if they cannot follow orders.
  • Exo Hunter: ... you guys know I'm right here, right?

Kai and Jay teaming up to combat Cole’s logic to achieve their own aspirations just makes me really really happy
