Zanna Mirzam?

By PepperminPatti

Scifi / Action

Zanna Mirzam Skywalker

Hi. I'm Zanna Mirzam. I'm 14 years old, I live on Sullus, a planet on the outer rim. Sullus used to be known for its amazing pilots, there are runways and hangers everywhere. Flying is a main part of life. Ships are always flying over head, and there are several training schools that teach kids as young a 10 to pilot. The most commonly used system is a flight simulator. it's basically a video game, but it teaches you how to fly. All the cool kids have one at their house. Sullus is also a prized trading post, and that attracts many people, including the first order. When I was 11 all I wanted for my 12th birthday was a flight simulator of my very own. Instead, the first order took over my planet.

The first Order changed my planet. Stormtroopers patrolled everywhere, and anyone looking even a little bit out of line is arrested. The X-wings and Corellian Freighters that always flew over head were replaced with tie fighters and Star destroyers. trade nearly ceased overnight, and the only thing that keeps us citizens going is the black market. All pilot schools were closed down, and flight simulators were taken to train stormtroopers. They don't want us to fly away. People used to be able to fly whenever they wanted, but know if you want to fly, you need a complicated permit that costs a fortune, you can only buy permits per flight, and you can't even leave the planet. the First Order doesn't trust us, and I don't trust them.

Most people just stay inside, and wait for it to be over, for the resistance or the republic to save us. My Aunt Jhoti and Uncle Mark didn't do that. Instead, we just tried to fit into the cookie-cutter mold the First Order set up for us. I didn't know it yet, but I was to important to be hidden away. Unlike most of my former classmates, I still went to school. I sat through all the lessons about how great the first Order was, and battles the first order won, and how terrible the republic was, and how all resistance fighters needed to be killed. All the classes that were really not teaching us anything but to stay still and not revolt.

Even though everyone else thought that I was a traitor, I still wanted my flight simulator, but I knew I couldn't have it. Yet somehow, my Aunt and Uncle got one for me. to this day I have no idea how they snuck it past the first order, but they did, and on the last night of Hanukkah when I was 12, I got it. It's a much older model, but it still worked. That was the last happy day I had for a long time.

hypaalicious: This story follows two main characters, Zoey and Derek, on a winding adventure that sucks you in from the beginning. It was easy to get into and get a feel for the world that the author is projecting, as well as all of the warring factions and difference of ideals that would otherwise be very co...

John Smith: This is what Sci Fi is all about. Reads like early Heinlein. In the style of Space Cadets. No esoteric problems..but good ol blaster and space action with a host of relatable characters

Mark-Mikkel: Got directed here by the author herself. Started reading it, schoolday turned into a day of reading. I really like the apocaliptic world she has created. There are some oddities in the writing tho, but I guess they are because she did have to do it for NaNo (which she wrecked, good job!). In the ...

internathunal: I was held captive by your sense of style. I would love to see more from you. I enjoyed this immensely.

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Raymond Keith Moon: Great story arc. Nice command of the balance of overview and detail. Feels a bit like a multi-player computer game, but provides satisfying explanations for all the apparent magic. Please keep writing!

RiverSong: So, at first glance, I thought this was just going to be like any other werewolf book out there that you could find on Wattpad, but I was intrigued enough with the little bloop that I wanted to read more. Following that weird thing that I call curiosity, I found this thing called an obsession. Th...

FateFellShort: I have read this story and have followed the writers on tumblr from the beginning. Its a wonderful story. Beautifully written with a really nice pace, that makes it enjoyable to read more than once. For me, fairy tail has very good characters but what the writers have done is give them more depth...

Warchief: The biggest problem with the Harry Potter series is that it's all from his point of view. So we never really get to see or understand events from other peoples perspective.

Ben Gauger: Kudos to Bryan Laesch, author of Remnants of Chaos:Chaotic Omens for his use of the Gothic style of writing and in addition the footnotes and endnotes at the end of each chapter, a welcome accompaniment to be sure, though his use of grammar could use a little improving, but his use of punctuation...

But since both my computer and my internet connection has been futzing around so much, I'm surprised that I'm able to write this even now. basically you know I adore this story, I've told you as much before. I cannot fault it in any way at all, except that I wa...
