I’ll try my best to post more. Tell me what you guys think about this. Any tips is appreciated.
Question: @[redacted] asks, if this was the end of The Force Awakens (Starkiller Base blown up, Hosnian System gone, tension broken but easily on the rise any moment…), where would your character be, and what would he/she be doing? How would they feel about the news?
Drae’lath grips his chest and falls to his knees, clutching at his chest. The tranquil silence of his room was broken by the twisted suffering that Drae’lath was just now experiencing. This pain, this suffering, had felt as if a burning dagger was being forced into his heart. Every second seared an eternity’s time of pain into his mind, but as quickly as it began, the pain stopped.
“Merciful stars above,” gasping to still in breathe and calm his pain, using what he had learned during his service to the Empire, to help ease his burden, "what was that?"
He looked around to see if there was anything that might deduce where the pain’s origin were as he stood back up and began to collect himself. Nothing was able to tell him anything, with the exception of his holoterminal. He had noticed upon his holonet terminal, a small glowing blip. It was to the emergency holonet channels. He switched the channel and waited for the message.
"Now here this.
Now here this.
All emergency channels prepare for priority message from the New Republic.
“Citizen of the Galactic New Republic. As you may know, the Galactic Concordance was signed in order to bring peace to this once war-torn Galaxy. Although the Imperial Remnant has been more than gracious in allowing the Concordance to pass, there are those from within the Remnant, that felt so driven, by the signing of this Concordance, for merely wanting peace and democracy in a galaxy still healing from the Civil War, as to bring more hostility and more death to this new and fragile state of peace. An offshoot of the Imperial Military know as a First Order had departed from the Galactic Republic and fled to the Unknown Regions of space long ago. Until recently, they had been nothing more than a group standing in opposition to the goals of the New Republic.
That was until now. With sorrow and grief, I must tell you that war has once again been declared. The First Order has returned from the Unknown Regions with a military force that stands in clear defiance of the Galactic Concordance. Now there are rumors of the destruction of an entire planetary system. Those rumors have been confirmed as truth. The Hosenian System has been destroyed by the First Order has called the Starkiller Base. But do not fear. For this base was destroyed by our New Republic Military.This is also true. I…”"
Unable to hear such news, Drae’lath stopped the broadcast. He stood frozen, trying to embrace the reality of the given situation.
“Mother of Moons.” He whispered under his breathe. "An entire system. The destruction of their base? Didn’t someone warm them of this?"
Something began to manifest from within. “How could they have allowed their arrogance to blind them so?” Every thought fueled this power, every emotion altering it’s intent and purpose. “Or was it truthfully ignorance that prevented them from truly seeing? So much death.” It was at this moment that it had build to a point where it could no longer be held in. The room began to shutter and shake. This was a feeling Drae’lath knew far too well. Rage. His rage, then, for a brief moment, had finally taken hold.
“HOW COULD THEY BE SO STUPID!?” He unconsciously used his connection to the Force to grip a small chair and slammed it into the wall, shattering the wooden construct immediately upon impact. As the chair shatter, so did his rage’s control over Drae’lath. Silence, once again, embraced the room. Drae’lath realized something in his moment of clarity.
“War will soon be upon us, I’m sure of it. The Galaxy will be cry out for their blood. And they will not allow their base fall to go unpunished. The Counsel has surely been made aware of this, I am certain; but what do they plan on doing, I do not know. I must to inform Master Celsus about this immediately.”
