Story Idea


The alien has always heard of the forbidden planet, the one that sings.  The beings there are incredibly powerful, and could wipe anyone out with a thought.  Were they to escape their planet, the universe would be plunged into chaos, darkness and enslavement.  Nightmares swirled through his mind as a child, enormous creatures would break his body, suck out the juices and devour his very soul, the demons of the Blue Planet were monstrosities!

He had a dream, though, one in which a demon appeared to him and gave him a plant whose stem was green, and it had delicate white leaves at the top that pulled back from a yellow center.  The demon spoke to him.  "This is a symbol of love on our planet."  Dumbfounded, he took the flower.  There was nothing threatening about the creature except its size, but even that did not seem very frightful.  It didn't even have pointed teeth.

For many years he couldn't shake the dream, and began to question the dogma of his society.  The more he dug in to old records, the more he realized they had been deceived, and the beings of the Blue Planet were not demons at all.  The secret records he uncovers suggests they are even the perfect beings, the image of the universe manifest.  As he discovers these things he finds himself in the midst of intrigue and deceptions.  When his government realizes he has learned some hidden truths, they label him a traitor and he finds himself catapulted into an underground movement to reveal the truth and expose their government's involvment in the Demon Planet.  To do this, he and likeminded individuals must travel to the Blue Planet and learn the truth for themselves.

Tribute to G'kar

I stand here at the end of your days

It hurts to see your eyes full of pain and haze

You still look to me with love

A pleading to at last rise above

The mortal shell was just a passing phaze

I say goodbye to you, my closest and best friend

My greatest responsibility to see your agony end.

But as I look, I see the pup chasing the ball

When did spring ever change to fall?

Gray creeps through your fur, each red hair in silver blends.

You ask me with eyes that barely see

To finally allow you to run free

away from the prison life has become

Valkrys beckons for you to come

Beyond the veil, across the bridge, beyond the sea.

My selfish heart wants you to stay

But how could I ask that when misery holds sway

To love so deeply I must let go

Before I do, I want you to know

You will be in my heart forever and a day
