ButterfliesHello again,
My previous journal entry was about spring and flowers, so naturally I thought that an entry on butterflies must follow. How much do we know about insects? Here, I will list just some facts:

1. Butterfly wings are transparent.

2. Butterflies taste with their feet.
3. Butterflies live on an all-liquid diet.
4. A butterfly must assemble its proboscis as soon as it emerges from the chrysalis.
5. Butterflies can't fly if they're cold.
6. A newly emerged butterfly can't fly.
7. Butterflies live just 2-4 weeks, usually.
8. Butterflies employ all kinds of tricks to keep from being eaten.
So interesting! I hope you enjoy this collection of all kinds of butterflies.

Winter Song: Mandokarla, Part 1

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 1, 2014, 10:19 PM

Another chapter in my Star Wars OC saga.  Set after "Starla Adrift." 

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Starla Winter wondered why Andis Meyer had called her to his hometown of Solykad, Mandalore. The Clone Wars raged on, after more than a year. She was tired of it all. She just wanted to rest for a few days, and she missed time alone with Andis. She stretched out on the warm, comfortable bed in Andis’ house as the morning sunlight hit her body. She missed him so much. He was such a gentleman, yet such a mastermind military leader and ruthless warrior. She grinned to herself. She couldn’t wait to see him again. 

She got dressed in a t-shirt and shorts, and made some caf and toast. Starla then took a walk along the beach at Lake Ralin, feeling at peace for the first time in a long time. She approached the secret little cove that Andis had taken her to many times, a favorite place to embrace under the alluring light of Concordia, Mandalore’s moon. 

Starla sat down on the water’s edge, letting the gentle waves tickle her toes. She dreamed of Andis’ touch, his kiss, his wicked grin just for her. She sent her love out to him in the Force, hoping he would feel it. She was about to get up and walk back to the house, when a dazzling gemstone appeared before her, floating and glistening.

Then she felt his presence, and smiled. “Andis Meyer! Su cuy'gar! Show yourself right now,” she laughed. Then she looked around for him. He was an expert at invisibility cloaking, and he appeared right behind her and grabbed her shebs. She giggled. This was a fun little game. 

Gedet'ye, Andis! I’ve missed you, darling,” Starla whispered to the air. 

Andis whispered into her ear, “I’ve missed you too, cyar'ika,” then he appeared before her. He put his arms around her and they kissed passionately for a while. He knew it was time.

A magnificent band he handcrafted from beskar materialized, and he whispered, “Starla, Mhi solus tome, mhi solus dar'tome, mhi me'dinui an, mhi ba'juri verde. Ni kar'tayl gar darasuum.

Starla knew exactly what he said - it was the Mandalorian wedding vow. She didn’t hesitate to repeat it back to him, “Andis, Mhi solus tome, mhi solus dar'tome, mhi me'dinui an, mhi ba'juri verde. Ni kar'tayl gar darasuum.”

He placed the ring on her finger. They kissed gently and slowly for awhile, then strolled back to their home.

Written in collaboration with :iconsir-saboteur: who owns OC Andis Meyer.

We're working on the wedding ceremony and reception chapter - slowly.
