Coast of Durban, Africa.
Thrice I have attempted to write down my thoughts of my discovery, and thrice have my fingers faltered and my vision clouded with curiosity. Now, however, I find the time and place to record what may be the greatest discovery of my lifetime: a discovery that opens as many portals to possibilities in biology and zoology that it will have entire universities throwing themselves upon my findings! The very foundations of science will tremble!
If anyone will believe me, that is.
A few weeks ago, I came to Durban to study the mysterious deaths of Lamniforme sharks found near the ocean floor with teeth marks on their flesh unlike the mark of any predator in the area. During my studies, which were inconclusive, I found half of a lyre, battered and beaten and rusted by the cruel fangs of nature, laying on the sands of a Durban beach. It was only recently— earlier today, in
FYS: Visitors Part 2“Turn it off, turn it off!” Dr. Giacometti begged, covering her ears as the high pitched, multi-octave screeching filled the conference room. The Groupmind's kernel in the Explorer's main system did so immediately, but left the primitive, pixelated graphics view on the wall, of the huge, artificial chamber filled with primitive 8-bit icons, billions of icons, each representing a severed mind living in a near total sensory deprivation. A deprivation that had been going on for over a thousand years, tended by their mechanical masters.FYS: Visitors Part 217 hours ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
There was a dead silence in the room. Not even the crew's morphs dared interrupt it, as they contemplated the problem before them.
Col. Mitterrand cleared his throat, trying to remain calm for the sake of his crew, while the atavistic desire to panic and run tempted him. “So, to be clear. Going by what the.... OtherMind... told us, there are about five billion alien brains in those tanks we saw, living in that... VR cr

“Why me?” Frank Johnson kicked the floor of the Silver Streak’s vast hangar deck. Behind him, the shuttlecraft looked like a huge brick--a description that seemed more than usually apt now. He didn’t see how the craft would ever be able to maneuver, laden with an unreasonable supply of gold. Who measured wealth in gold nowadays anyway?
Well, obviously the colonists in the Omega Sector did. A closely packed group of solar systems in globular cluster M4, the Omega Sector was the Silver Streak’s most unusual colony--or group of colonies. Usually two hundred colonists were sent down to a planet to start a new life; but here, three separate planets had been colonized, and although each had its own government, their economic system was based on the mining of rich asteroids by private ventures. Whose idea that was Frank didn’t know. Certainly not Captain Cameron’s; Richard
Thought HoursYou work for a company that pays you to think, and that’s it. Nothing more. They installed a chip in your brain and now you're on salary in exchange for your thoughts. You can do whatever you want, and it's the fantasy gig. Your friends envy you from behind their cubical desks, but of course there's a catch.Thought Hours2 hours ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
You don't own any of your thoughts. They belong to the company now, for their profit and gain or simply to archive away. You can do nothing with them, charged only with spawning them into existence.
“Wait!" you might be saying. "If I don't have my thoughts, what do I have? Nothing at all?”
The company owns your thoughts, and so they own you. It's a ten year contract, so you can’t walk away. But you know things now, about the company. They have no transparency, no accountability, no soul. You can’t stay.
What will you do to be free? How will you plan your escape when the company can access your every thought--even your dreams? Will you solicit

Operator 1: "Sir, all systems are down, and we're completely vulnerable to enemy fire."
Unknown 1: "What about backup generators?"
Operator 2: "They've been severely damaged. Engineers are already on their way to begin repairs."
Unknown 2: "This is bad, we're sitting ducks and we've got nothing to defend ourselves."
Unknown 1, looking out the window;
"I don't think so, the enemy fleet seems to be facing similar issues. Our fleet stopped firing as well, they may be facing the same problems."
Unknown 2: "Let's just hope the ground force is doing better than we are. They've got no support and we're in the blind."
Operator 2: "Someone must have fired an EMP rocket from one of the Space-Defense silos. What the hell is going on down there?"
Unknown 1: "Whatever it is, it can't be good. But we need to stay focused on the standing issue."
Operator 1: "What should we do?"

Chapter 7: Apologies
The morning afterwards felt like a cinderblock had been dropped on top of me. I woke up with a powerful headache and an upset stomach; it was odd, but not impossible to solve. I soon chocked it up to be the afterglow of Cody’s and my “yelling competition” last night. Cody had recently become the bane of my existence because of his biased opinion towards me and my appearance. I had proved to him that I could be dangerous, and he’d most likely never let me live it down.
“Ugh…turn of the alarm…it’s too early.” I turned to see Emerald, waking up before I shook my head.
“Dude, there’s no alarm.”
“Then why is my head ringing?!” he asked. I scratched my head before remembering that our minds were interconnected. It was most likely that my headache had resounded off of his mind. However, I merely shrugged and outstretched my arm and allowed him to slither u
The Prowl - Chapter 25I stare down at my hands as the buggy comes to a halt, my fingers fiddling around. I clench my fists together, carving small crescents into my palms with my fingernails. I feel my whole body start to shake as I tighten my muscles, fighting back tears still. I can’t do anything for Topher. It’s too late. He’s dead.The Prowl - Chapter 258 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
“I know it hurts,” Aster mumbles, placing his warm hand on my arm. I turn my head to him, his sympathetic gaze washing over me. He opens his mouth to say something again, but the words seem to get caught in his throat.
“It always hurts when someone you know and love dies,” Farsing mutters from the other side of the buggy, Withorn cleaning his small cuts with alcohol. The harsh liquid doesn’t seem to phase Farsing as the Healer apprentice presses it into his wounds.
I sigh and peer at the ground. The others had it worse than we did. Everyone came back damaged in s

I went over to the dresser to try and find some underwear for myself after checking through the drawers I found a several pairs of panties mostly pink and black all lacy throng type panties and no bras. I guess I could make do with no bra until this Vali person tells us where underwear shops are. The panties were nice but tighter than I was used to my guess is they were the kind for showing off to your boyfriend or husband or customer like the girls in the brothel I had to dig pervy sage out of. I quickly slipped on a black pair because I hated the color pink the only way I could stand the color was on
Sakura’s hair and I grew to get used to that color as my friendship with Saruka grew. The rest of the other drawers were empty save for knee socks and over the knee socks I grabbed a pair to put on after I put on some other cloths if this person got any others for me. I finally found some other

Duncan's voice was strained. "While we seem to speak the same language, your accent and terminology are peculiar. It's as though you've arrived from another world, and a violent one by the look of your armor. As we prepare for our stand against the darkspawn, this is a strange omen indeed."
"Trust me, I'm as confused as you are." I pursed my lips, trying to be patient. This situation was becoming dire. Were they a somehow undiscovered colony on the outer edges of the Traverse? If that were true, contact with Earth could be nearly impossible. I had to learn more, beginning with where I was. Then I could begin to unravel how I came to be here and why.
Duncan continued. "Please understand that we mean you no harm or disrespect, but under the circumstances, we must ta

I hate the cold. I hate the cold. I hate the cold. After only a few steps into the frozen tundra of Route 216. We still had the equally cold Route of 217, before finally reaching the just as cold Snowpoint City. It would be a long day. I was dreading every minute of it.
“Do you want to build a snowman?” someone said. I had a bad feeling where this was going. It was not something bad. I just have a feeling that a lot of people, including myself would like it. This however was not the time or place for it despite the perfect and ironic atmosphere for it.
As always, seeing that the only events that seem to occur at times are me meeting grunts or new team members and Team Galactic is not one to be ones that sing, it was a new team member more than likely.
A person a few feet away in the blizzard continued to sing their song. This was not going to end any time soon. Despite this odd familiarity there was clearly somet

It was winter in Exition, which really didn’t mean anything. It did not snow, and the only reason it got colder was because there was a huge cloud of fallout in the air. Jetstream hated this weather. It made his joints hard to move.
He yawned and lay down on the ground. There were no duties for the day, as Stride was currently out on a scouting patrol. This meant that he had the entire day to freeze. Oh, what fun…
Watchman approached him. “What’s going on?”
“Bored out of my mind.” Jetstream growled. “And it’s cold to top it off. What is with this weather?”
“It is cold.” Watchman commented. “Certainly enough to freeze one’s joints, I’d say.”
Jetstream yawned. “The Battle Gears are scouting, which means I have an entire day to suffer through the cold.”
“What do you wanna do?”

The door slammed closed cutting off all light and engulfing everything in an inky blackness. “It’s as dark as the inside of a cow in here.” Rover complained, still struggling and dragging his feet as he was practically carried forward. “Y’all need to pay that power bill.”
Despite his fast talking, pleading, struggling and colorful insults he was completely ignored. They had tranquelized him, arrested him and were dragging him to to who knows where. The least they could do was acknowledge his existence. Snooty. Just plain snooty.
But that didn't stop him from trying.
