(Btw you can find the lineart of this in the fresh, new @voltroncoloringbook v2 and color it for free!)

important scenes in this darth maul book:

  • darth maul and sidious dressing up as tourists (which i can only imagine as a hawaiian shirt with shorts) to go and look at the jedi temple
  • darth maul going to a parking garage and just paying for parking like a normal person
  • darth maul using the force to twirl into a snowbank then “corkscrewing” back out
  • darth maul’s drink of choice at bars is pure water and he used the force to keep anyone from questioning this

Why do you write in lowercase?

Why do you keep talking about love, about heartache?

I don’t want to hear about your sadness.

Tell me about the peach trees. About the cherry blossoms,

(I know you did.)

Tell me your equivalent of eating yellow paint,

Did you ask the barista for iced coffee?

I want to know if you laughed at Jimmy Fallon tonight.

Tell me about fairy lights, or leather boots,

or the way the bubbles looked against the incoming traffic.



I don’t want to know your misery anymore.

Good morning, SMblr! This is an assignment for one of my classes; while this isn’t *exactly* a tech brief, it’s right up my alley. I took a bit of an informal approach, but I want to share in case anyone out there would find this useful/have something to add. This is still a draft. 


Of course, there is more than one way to make a calling script; some people like to set up different columns in the margins and others like the dreaded text boxes…. But this is the way that works best for me, in Word, at least. You can do the same thing in Excel too! 

@stagemanagereej this is the assignment you asked about! What do you think?

“My bill,” I said, enunciating. 
“You dragged me into this mess. You can pay me, same as any other client. Where do I send the invoice?”
