Well I'm a 22 year old British Environmental Earth Science graduate of Aberystwyth University looking for work related to my degree while I hold down a part time job at my local Tescos to bring money in while I search
Fortunatly for you guys this gives me quite a bit of free time and I thought that I would write down some of the things that randomly pop into my head
I like most science fiction and fantasy tales including Narnia, Stargate, Star Wars, Babylon 5, Battlestar Galactica, Lord of the Rings, Star Trek, Harry Potter and others
I'm gay, have a massive crush on Bradley James and my favoriate pairings are Arthur/Merlin (Bradley James/Colin Morgan) High King Peter/Prince Caspian (William Moseley/Ben Barnes), Wyatt Halliwell/Christopher Perry (Wes Ramsey/Drew Fuller), Boone (Ian Somerhalder) and Samuel Anders/Lee Adama (Michael Trucco/Jamie Bamber) so you can be dam sure that most of my stories are going to be slash. If you don't like that dont read them, its an extraordinarily simple concept
PLEASE READ WHAT'S UNDER THIS!!
I am the boy who never finished high school, because I got called a fag everyday
I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.
I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.
I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.
We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.
I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.
I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.
I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.
I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.
We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.
I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.
I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.
I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.
I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male.
I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.
I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.
I am the man who died when the paramedics stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.
I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I did not have to always deal with society hating me.
I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.
I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love.
I am the person who is afraid of telling his loving Christian parents he loves another male.
I am the boy tied to a fence, beaten to a bloody pulp and left to die because two straight men wanted to teach me a lesson
Re-post this if you believe homophobia is wrong. Please do your part to end it

Galactic Republic of Planets - Ground
Eagle and Kestrel class gunships – Coloured black and red. Completely enclosed to protect troops and serve as a boarding ship. Doors slide back to reveal troop compartment. Twin missile launchers above main body remain as do ball turrets in the wings. Two Subach HL7s added to wing tips. Forward turrets, both ball and guns removed and replaced by four Subach HL7s built into the main body that are forward firing. Kestrel class looses the troop compartment and carries a Raptor or a Turtle exposed with a ¬ shape where the troop compartment usually is. http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/starwars/images/5/5f/LAAT.jpg
Bright Sky Class Artillery + Command APC: Black and red much smother lines but retains the shape of a rectangle with flattened corners.

Javelin Class Artillery: Black and red, twice the width of a raptor, half again as long http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/File:MZ8-FoC.jpg

Weapons controller compartments were on either side of it, four turreted pulse cannons on the four corners of the vehicle. The Turtle and Raptor differed in the back half, the Turtle had lost the ½ meter high turret and with it it’s generator and the 6 additional missiles stored and had instead replaced it with a compartment to hold 8 troopers and a rear door to offload them under the covering fire from the rear pulse cannons. The twin tracks were placed directly under the sides to give it a minimal targeting profile. Launcher carries 6 Harpoon air to air missiles. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Image:T3-B.jpg
Peacekeeper Troops: Standard 501st Legion clone trooper amour. The black underlay remains black, the white panels should be changed to blood red and the blue parts should be changed to gold for a commander, black for standard and heavy troopers and space marines, bronze for jetpack troopers and snipers or blue for engineers and pilots of gunships, tanks etc... http://www.mwctoys.com/REVIEW_012808a.htm
