One of the things that I regret about that post is that it's interpreted in its SF copy as being "anti-SJW" - which it's not. I understand that certain bad actors were always going to portray it that...

Starleaf’s squadron regrouped formally an hour or so later – despite the triumph the mood was somber. The strict numbers of the losses when compared to the scores of the enemy they’d killed didn’t...

A bullet whizzed by Talin’s ear, another dented into, before ear-piercingly ricocheting off of Gobu’s armor plating. Talin ducked behind the ancient’s branches, trying to keep him rejuvenated using...
