    Violence is not inherently a menace, but it is always violet.

    It was a place in a story series I worked on since my childhood. Specifically a fort like Helm's Deep but was originally a town where the characters ancestors lived as slaves to the bad group until they rebelled. Became a symbol of resistance, perseverance, and hope as it was the original start of the rebellion. In when my story took place hundreds of years later, it was a place they went to battle as that was a strategy to use against the bad army as to face them on an open field would be suicide; so this they always tried avoiding that.

    The series was a scifi war movies with a kind of LOTR feel to it. Thing is I moved on from it as part of the series was it was set in a kind of LOTR, SW, Dune, and DC universe combining them all. I got challenged to be original so I went away from it all.

    Now my main focus is film scripts and a children tv cartoon series I want to do. I have thought about the Arlon idea from time to time, and it would be a lot different than what I had.
    1. Not changing the timeline so I could play the main part. I wanted to play the mainpart, but as I got older I made the character older to fit me. But since I'm more trusting and not as self conscious someone else can play the part.
    2. The series has an end. Originally it would go for a 100 years. But I have an end to it now. After maybe 15 years of a series the films would end at a certain point. Part of me always wanted to expand things, but it's ok to have an end.
    3. Along with taking out all the other references that are not apart of the series and stuff. I don't have to add on to people's work when it's just my own I need to be original in.

    I can't say I won't go back to it one day, but I have other focuses.

    Heat death and the big rip renders everything ever imagined or undertaken by literally everyone ever, completely redundant. Everything is entirely pointless. Your achievements, desires, loves, families, friends, your joy, your sadness, everything will ultimately mean nothing, stand for nothing, and become an undefined endless nothing.

    That's akin to saying Tarkin is decent for reducing hunger, poverty and unemployment on Alderaan to 0%. ;)

    i agree, but i actually find it a really reassuring thought. like if i'm stressing about a job interview or a date or something, it's nice to remind myself that it doesn't matter one bit in the grand scheme of things. takes the pressure off.
