You don’t start that many businesses and get them off-world, and amass hundreds of ships, in so few decades… without pulling off some things for some people who pay. That is a big part of what my father has been doing in our part of the cluster. He couldn’t always get the shiniest stuff, but he met some people who appreciated his services.
After ~30 years of businesses doing well for my father, and after the years it took to raise me during the latter part of that, he felt it was time to send…

I don’t know if I can submit this for the contest, as a portion of it is vocabulary invented and copied from another post, but if it is acceptable and not considered plagiarism then I hope it is to your liking. I organized the vocabulary better, starting with categories and then often alphabetizing it within each category. I also explained a connection between the languages of Athra/Amarr and Soliara, and did my best to translate the Holder oath, word for word.
The following vocabulary is predominantly based on modifications (such as syllable/s flipping) of Romani words (that language being a development from ancient Indian, Persian, Greek, Slavic, and other European languages), as well some words from Latin and various Semitic languages (such as Arabic, Hebrew, and Yiddish). Basically it is a language which astronauts from the Middle East and its surrounding lands formed over thousands of years. It has influences and hints from most of the…
I’d like to submit my first original translation to the Poetry category.
Vakhai, vakhid, vamam, vamatalb;

To live, to see, to stand, to claim;
This is the way of the Holder.
I am a person who rises.
My world is my throne.
I am the hand of the empress.
My slaves are her fortune.
I am the pride of the empire.
I am unsure, on review. if it fits within contest parameters for a number of reasons.
I will discuss with the judges and contact you privately.
At this time, this specific entry is not being accepted.
On the other hand for the poem, I will add to the list for Poetry!
I would like to submit
[YC124 NECWC Poetry] Captured for the poetry category.
Looking over this thread again, I noticed that in the basic information section the fourth category is named “News/Gossip/Opinion Pieces” yet in the story listing this category is titled “Gossip/News”… Which is it? My submission is not gossip or news. I submitted it as an “Opinion Piece” because it is meant as an insight as to my opinion on the current widespread mindset of capsuleers. However, every other entry so far in this category is about recent events or conspiracy gossip, which makes me think my entry doesn’t fit here.
I would like a bit of clarification on what “Opinion Piece” is supposed to mean. The current post doesn’t make that clear. If my entry is miscategorized I’d like it moved to Prose I guess. That’s the next best place it would fit.
Looks like it was just missed out in the list. I’m pretty sure it’s still opinion pieces as well.
Opinion is part of news. I updated OP to make that clear, however!
OP also updated with entries to date. Only 3 weeks or so left to enter!
