Book Review:  Star Wars Bloodline by Claudia Gray

Conner Norton

Bloodline by Claudia Gray is a star wars novel that takes place 6 years before the events of The Force Awakens. This novel helps you to understand the politics that were completely missing from the movie and it gives the war between the Resistance and the First Order motivations behind both sides. I know a lot of people were confused about the difference between the resistance and the New Republic.  The resistance is a military operation headed by Princess Leia and secretly backed by the New Republic to fight the evil first order. This story mainly follows Princess Leia, C3PO,  Leia`s intern Korr Sella (the main girl in the picture below), a New Republic x-wing pilot Joph Seastriker, and her assistant Greer.  Remember when the First Order blows up the planet that looks like Coruscant? That planet was the capital of the New Republic and its name is Hosnian Prime

The INTP Writing Personality: Rational Curiosity

That sums up everything.

Write with Personality

It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.
Albert Einstein

What can knowledge of personality type teach you about your writing style?

INTP writers are curious and analytical. They enjoy technical subjects and seek to categorize information into an orderly system. With their insatiable appetite for knowledge, they may prefer research to writing. Objective and logical, they like to solve problems but tend to have little interest in ideas that can’t be proven rationally.

The INTP personality type is one of 16 identified by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, a popular psychometric instrument used to determine how people prefer to gather information and make decisions. The initials INTP stand for the following:

The Dream of a River

# The Dream of a River

The moment when

The Earth drifts

The heavens sleep

Mankind dreams

Of something they couldn’t fathom

So they bestowed it names:

The silver river among the stars

Or snowflakes gently arranged by hand–

The path of magical winter

A lovely road untravelled

Beads of milk evanesced not by time

A haunted painting on a black canvas

The sky’s sapphire dress, graced with diamonds

Or a silk of the tale-weaver’s thread

Imagination’s embers strewn over the night

By a lonely dreamer

Man can only interpret from what they can see

From the lands of Here

A limited landscape

The truth is empirical

Elusive is the river; disappearing, slipping away, but never fading

It’ll always be there, fixed in its place

The star cloud waltzing slowly over the course of years

With our Earth in its dusty hand

The brilliant one who (nearly) crushed the world with the gravity of its empty heart

This is a place

For the Sun’s sisters

And the Earth’s estranged twins

And beautiful sights

For future discoveries

For curiosity, for knowledge

If we can’t be the stars in your river

Let us be the twinkle in your thoughts

Twilight (18/2/2013)

When dusk arrives
And darkness comes to play
Open your eyes again
For there’s no night and no day
Winter’s spell is broken
Where moonlight leads me to you
Meet me after dark
For the Golden Twilight brought me to you
When the eventide skies
Divides into two
Moments to nightfall
You’re in the sapphire blue
My memories are in shards
But there you are, darkling
In this gloaming rapture
I’m no longer grieving


Be poised to leave
And I’m poised to stay
Our feet pointed at different directions
But our hands were clasped tight
We were both afraid to let go
The music played still
I moved forward
And so did you
Between clumsy steps
Was a mutual understanding
Never let us
Swing to oblivion
Take me further
Then the end
Of this song.

Firefall: Teaser

Firefall: Exordium

Since she was a child, Han Eun-soo had always dreamed of the same thing–every day in her life.

In her dream, she was enveloped in an infinite darkness from where there was no escape. The feeling of emptiness and fear was real, and she had never felt any feelings as intense in her life. Never. Tears would flow down her face, notwithstanding how many times had she experienced the same strange dream. Prayers would fly out between her lips for the darkness to go away.

There was something about the atmosphere that distressed her, as if someone else’s suffering was placed upon her–an intense empathy of sorts. The feelings were never hers, but they felt so real. This confusion only added more to her agony. The line of what was real and what was not was blurred, and reality and illusion became evil twins.

Then, someone held her hand. A bright light washed all the darkness from her eyes. In its place was an image of a boy, flashing a warm, angular smile. An ominous shade framed his glistening eyes. He opened out his mouth to say something, but Eun-soo couldn’t hear him. In fact, even after a decade of reliving the same dream over and over she had never heard his voice. However, some things did change. The boy in the dream grew up as she did. In her first dream, he appeared as a frightened, insecure little boy, but with time she had watched him growing up as a confident young man and his image in her dreams was getting clearer and clearer.

Unfortunately, her strange dream never lasted longer as she wished. She wished to know more about him, the man haunting her every dream, but when she woke up the sense of loss would haunt her. She would end up with tears staining her face, trembling hands and a name:


A/N: This is only a teaser for an upcoming fanfiction. If it served its purpose well, I shall continue it. So, please let me know! It might end up in Wattpad someday! ^_^
