Hey, His Majesty the Emperor here. Also known by his reviewer name RKB. What does that mean, you ask? Wouldn't you like to know.
I always enjoy routing for the heroes in the film. But the thing is, I'm not very good at actually writing about heroes. For me, villains are much easier to write. So most of my stories will probably be from the POV of the villain.
My favorite villain is definitely Emperor Palpatine from Star Wars, a great number of my stories will probably end up being about him. Most of what I read and watch is either historical or science fiction in nature.
I really appreciate reviews. I will accept constructive criticisms, but not flames.
If anyone has any ideas for a oneshot involving our favorite Emperor feel free to PM me or something.
I'd like to say thanks a lot to the person/s who have added some of my stories to the Best of the Best and the Senator...Emperor...Sith community pages. It really does my heart a great deal of good to know that other people think that what I write is worthy of being put on these pages. My deepest thanks to whoever you are.
My favorite fanfiction: I only use this profile to write on occasion. I spend most of my time on this site reading and reviewing. I have seen many a fanfic in many a category. I have read oneshots and I have read million word epics. I have read the good, the bad, and the average. And in the years since I started reading fanfiction there has been one series of stories written by an author that has been so good that I am surprised that they haven't published yet. This is hands down in my humble opinion the best long Star Wars fanfic on this site. I am talking of course about that grand epic: The Tarkin's Fist Saga by AshlaTi. Never before have I seen such an epic take on Star Wars before. The author manages to balance a massive cast of characters, most of them OC's and keeps each character consistent, original, three dimensional, and compelling. It is such a well researched and well developed series that I have in the past made it clear that I feel it is on Par with the absolute best Star Wars authors out there. It is that good. I highly recommend it to anyone reading this profile. Go read it! Why are you still here? GO READ IT!!!
My favorite quotes:
"Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of congress. But I repeat myself."-Mark Twain
"The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.""-Ronald Reagan.
"I may not think much of our profession, but when contrasted with respectability it is comparatively honest."-The Pirate King, The Pirates of Penzance.
"If con is the opposite of pro, then isn't Congress the opposite of progress? Or did we just f*ing blow your mind?!?" -John Stewart, America, the Book.
"There will always be a tomorrow if you are tough enough to cling to it."- Caldwell B. Cladwell.
"Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Watch your words for they become actions. Watch your actions for they become habits. Watch your habits for they become your character. And watch your character for it becomes your DESTINY. What we think, we become. My father always said that. And I think I am fine." -Margaret Thatcher (as played by Meryl Streep) in the Iron Lady.
"So you think I'm a loser? Just because I have a stinking job that I hate, a family that doesn't respect me, and a whole city that curses the day I was born? That may be a loser to you, but let me tell you something. Every morning when I wake up I know it's not going to get any better until I go back to sleep again. So I get up, have my watered down tang, and still frozen pop-tart, get in my car with no upholstry, no gas, and six more payments, to fight traffic, just for the privlage of putting cheap shoes on the cloven hooves of people like you. I'll never play football like I thought I would, I'll never know the touch of a beautiful woman, and I'll never again know the joy of driving without a bag on my head! But I am not a loser. Cause despite it all, me and every other guy, who will never be what he wanted to be, are still out there being what we don't want to be, forty hours a week for life. And the fact that I haven't put a gun in my mouth, you pudding of a woman, makes me a winner!"- The Man, The Myth, The Legend: Al Bundy
"Citizens of the civilized galaxy, on this day we mark a transition. For a thousand years, the Republic stood as the crowning achievement of civilized beings. But there were those who would set us against one another, and we took up arms to defend our way of life against the Separatists. In so doing, we never suspected that the greatest threat came from within.
The Jedi, and some within our own Senate, had conspired to create the shadow of Separatism using one of their own as the enemy's leader. They had hoped to grind the Republic into ruin. But the hatred in their hearts could not be hidden forever. At last, there came a day when our enemies showed their true natures.
The Jedi hoped to unleash their destructive power against the Republic by assassinating the head of government and usurping control of the clone army. But the aims of would-be tyrants were valiantly opposed by those without elitist, dangerous powers. Our loyal clone troopers contained the insurrection within the Jedi Temple and quelled uprisings on a thousand worlds.
The remaining Jedi will be hunted down and defeated! Any collaborators will suffer the same fate. These have been trying times, but we have passed the test. The attempt on my life has left me scarred and deformed, but I assure you my resolve has never been stronger. The war is over. The Separatists have been defeated, and the Jedi rebellion has been foiled. We stand on the threshold of a new beginning. In order to ensure our security and continuing stability, the Republic will be reorganized into the first Galactic Empire, for a safe and secure society, which I assure you will last for ten thousand years. An Empire that will continue to be ruled by this august body and a sovereign ruler chosen for life. An Empire ruled by the majority, ruled by a new constitution!
By bringing the entire galaxy under one law, one language, and the enlightened guidance of one individual, the corruption that plagued the Republic in its later years will never take root. Regional governors will eliminate the bureaucracy that allowed the Separatist movement to grow unchecked. A strong and growing military will ensure the rule of law.
Under the Empire's New Order, our most cherished beliefs will be safeguarded. We will defend our ideals by force of arms. We will give no ground to our enemies and will stand together against attacks from within or without. Let the enemies of the Empire take heed: those who challenge Imperial resolve will be crushed.
We have taken on a task that will be difficult, but the people of the Empire are ready for the challenge. Because of our efforts, the galaxy has traded war for peace and anarchy for stability. Billions of beings now look forward to a secure future. The Empire will grow as more planets feel the call, from the Rim to the wilds of unknown space.
Imperial citizens must do their part. Join our grand star fleet. Become the eyes of the Empire by reporting suspected insurrectionists. Travel to the corners of the galaxy to spread the principles of the New Order to barbarians. Build monuments and technical wonders that will speak of our glory for generations to come.
The clone troopers, now proudly wearing the name of Imperial stormtroopers, have tackled the dangerous work of fighting our enemies on the front lines. Many have died in their devotion to the Empire. Imperial citizens would do well to remember their example.
The New Order of peace has triumphed over the shadowy secrecy of shameful magicians. The direction of our course is clear. I will lead the Empire to glories beyond imagining.
We have been tested, but we have emerged stronger. We move forward as one people: the Imperial citizens of the first Galactic Empire. We will prevail. Ten thousand years of peace begins today." -Emperor Palpatine's Declaration of a New Order.
