Why should he compromise his own safety? "A target this low profile would normally be 1.5 million Euros, but... that many witnesses... 12 mil. No compromise." He said. "Of course.

I am a silvery gray metallic who reacts slowly with water. I’m in Group 2 which is in Room 4. I have 20 electrons in total, which I have 2 on the 1st and 4th shell and 8 on shell 2 and 3, I was used as a reducing agent in preparing other metals, like thorium and uranium. One thing to let you know is that I’m also a mineral to help making your bones a lot stronger.

Behind the desk of a science room sat Mr. Scharnofski—an educator in math and science. As lunchtime had arrived, he found himself grading paperwork for his students. A stern look had been planted on his face, and only a stronger one formed as a knocking was sounded at his door.
“Yes, hello?” he answered without looking up.
There, a young fairly obese 13 year old girl stood with sad eyes at his door. She had a small red skirt, a wool black shirt, and a pair of shiny black shoes with long white socks. Rather than the long flowing blonde hair she would later become accustomed to, she had the signature ponytail, much like Abigail's.
He raised an eyebrow and looked up at the girl, then sighed, “I can't give you any more accommodations in math, Chiya. You already have everything you are permitted to use for the average special ed. Student.”
Chiya let out a slight gasp, then lowe

"You should've told me that before I broke my sword and hurt myself just by killing this hostile Xenomorph," replied the annoyed Yoshiro.
(Incidentally, Blue K does indeed have a Xenomorph form. He usually keeps his instincts in check, however, so even if he does get hungry, he wont hunt others for food.)

About twenty minutes had passed since the violent confrontation between Chiya and Princia. Blood had been shed on an afternoon of celebration. Though one could argue that Princia had provoked the fight, or that Chiya had; ultimately, Seppuku had provoked the fight by hitting Chiya in the head with a stool. War had now been declared mutually between the two racers—something Chiya was ultimately trying to avoid due to cultural reasons. Her initial goal was to better the relations between Mysterians and Magicans, but unfortunately, the complete opposite was to occur. Essentially, this would be the equivalent to the United States battling the Soviet Union on the track. One culture would come out shamed.
On the other edge of the universe, though, was Bart Lemming, who remained in elegant attire. A fair deal of time had now passed since his arrival at Seppuku's base, and everything had initially went how he had planned. Unfortunately, as Chiya warned, he was having complicati

"Great!" he smiled back, closing the panel on his arm. He moved his fingers around, forming his hand into a fist a few times to loosen up the new parts. It felt good to have it working right again. "So, what was wrong with it?"
"A lot of the parts were broken. Some of them were just crushed, others were just broken in half. But..." She leaned back in her chair, rubbing her chin slowly. "What I found weird was all the corrosion. You been going swimming in the ocean lately?"
He reeled some at the accusatory look she was giving him. "No!" he yelled. "Of course not! I never get this thing wet. I even take it off when I get into the shower or bath."
"Then how do you explain what I found?"
"Could it be from sweat?"

My left foot completes the step I paused so I could shoot steady. I’m not sure how far I’ve come, but the woodwork seems more like that of a grand residence than ancient, hidden lair. Hopefully, I’m nearly outside.
We came to down in the dungeon quarter, where they keep people who’ve seen through their masquerade, but have no value to the crusade alive or dead. We were destined to become ration bars. Apparently when you mulch a human, all you have to do is add gelatine, oatmeal and a bit of grit.

Vignette: Introduction to Sandy (2200 words)In a residential neighborhood west of Syracuse, New York, a fifteen-year-old Kia pulled into a driveway. It had no self-driving capacity, wasn’t a hybrid, was missing two hubcaps and had one side mirror held on with duct tape. Still, it had managed the five-and-a-half-hour drive from Boston, which was all its owner had asked of it.Vignette: Introduction to Sandy (2200 words)1 week ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
A small, skinny girl (well, actually a young woman, but she looked distinctly girlish) in a knobbly sweater stepped out of the car. She had a clever, pretty face, thick glasses and a ponytail that flowed down to just past the small of her back. Her hair was a shade somewhere between ash-blond and mouse-brown, and had a gloss like an otter’s pelt.
She pulled two suitcases from the front passenger seat and gritted her teeth as she hauled them to the door, the loose heel on her right shoe slapping against the bottom of her foot at every step. Between them, the suitcases weighed about half what she did.
Her name was Sandra Symcox. Nine years ago, she

Chiya's eyes opened. Immediate shock had been bestowed upon her, however, as yet again she found herself in a most obscure situation. She wasn't clothed regularly, rather, she was now clothed in a pristine red robe with golden emblems. She looked down at the emblems with a puzzled quirked mouth, then raised an eyebrow.
“The bloody Hell is this?”
It was only then that she had finally looked up, surprised to find hundreds of loyal soldiers bowing before her in a courtyard. She blinked once with a puckered lip, then tilted her head with a cute smile.
“Okay, what's going on here?”
A noble looking courtier had then approached Chiya's throne. He took a heavy bow and presented her with a wooden bowl of rice. She squealed in excitement and wiggled her fingers around.
“Oo---oh! Is this ice cream?”
“Rice, as you requested.”
She grasped the bowl and quirked her mouth once again before looking down at the man, “Um, yeah, thanks...
Page-A-Day 365 Challenge: Day 43 I normally read on the train ride to school every morning, but there is one point that I always look up form my book. It's the few seconds between the last few buildings and before we enter the tunnel. It's there that I get the best view of the wall of clouds that surrounds our city. I can see their movement as a result of the high winds that are inside. The constant flashed of lightning that illuminate the dark grey mass.

No one knows where the clouds came from. What their purpose is. Whether or not they're even the result of the weather. They're a mystery to us. There have been a few groups that have tried to go out and study them, but they were never heard from again. Electronic devices like probes last only a few seconds before contact is lost with them.

Nancy had needed to hang back for a bit in the art studio to work on her sculpture, and she could hardly begrudge her for it - Nancy's true calling in life, if she had any at all, would be to make art that stunned even the most stuffy of critics, but that left her alone in the world for about an hour.
She stood at the window for a moment and looked down at the other kids milling around, keeping an eye out for the more troublesome ones.
From here, she could see a couple of them hanging around at the far end of the courtyard, but if they noticed her at all, she'd have got herself into the canteen by then, and once inside, even Tabitha couldn't touch her if s

Miro al cielo desde el solitario campanario; El olor a tierra húmeda se hace presente, pues aquella noche el cielo dejó caer su melancolía sobre la ciudad, mojando con celestiales lágrimas el orco enfermo al que los humanos llaman hogar. En pocas palabras, había llovido.
Esa noche, como es habitual, desperté de mi letargo. La dura, fría, y tiesa piedra me dio libertad de movimiento; dejando que el cuerpo inerte y carente de conciencia se disolviera mientras más pasaban los segundos, volviéndose a convertir en aquel mundano parásito, desterrado de la misericordia de Dios. Condenado a no ver más la luz del amanecer, condenado a no ver más la luz del sol; pues apenas el día asoma sus primeros rayos dorados, mi cuerpo se vuelve pesada e inmóvil roca.

Ren Magura turned toward the uncomfortable Josh Levingston sitting and holding onto the hull of the ship. Magura himself was quite comfortable zooming around the universe at light speeds.
“Levingston!” he shouted frightening the man even more. Then he picked up a bag labeled communicators and opened it up.
“What are you doing?” asked Levingston as he sat promptly.
Magura put a finger to his mouth. “You need to keep your mind off of things” he said as he pulled out two metallic wrist bands with circular devises attached to them. He chucked one over to Levingston. “Here were going to practice!”
Levingston caught the wrist band and put it on. In response to his thoughts the wrist band circular devise lit up and projected a holographic image of a space ship “quite like theirs” blowing up via an asteroid in the belly.

There's a reason why you need to fear the Karjamian's military might. ~ The Purple Karjam
Death Star was situated next to a planet the Karjamians had made for themselves. The Karjamians weren't loyal to the Galactic Empire. In fact, they consider their own planet to be a neutral planet, unwelcoming anyone allied with both the empire and the rebels due to them not even wanting to take part in the war.
When the Karjamians discovered the Death Star above their skies, they warned the empire that they're not to be taken lightly due to them possessing technology that could best even the Death Star itself. Laughing it off, they decided to prepare the testing of their Death Star on the planet in spite of the threats.
Just as they were about to fire, a huge spaceship with a powerful canon appeared out of nowhere. The ship readied the canon... and destroyed the Death Star in one hit.

I'm looking for people who can draw this scene for me in their own style and in color:
To those who aren't familiar with my OC's:
The taller guy is Sanctis and he's a homunculus, an artificial being, and he doesn't speak (can communicate only by telepathy)
The smaller guy is Jun, he's a scientist and he created Sanctis
That's why they're described in the picture as "dad" and "son", and as you can see, Jun is a happy proud "daddy" XD
There's no important reason why I want it, aside seeing my two sweethearts in a different style and color, it makes me happy.
In further note:
I can pay in points (I have 200 )
I would appreciate if you could be as close to original as possible (you can skip all the text tho)

- Sanctis is 200 cm tall (that's 6'6) Jun is 160 (that's 5'2) so yeah, it's no optical illusion or poor ang

For perhaps half of a second, everything was still and silent. The holding cells in Blackfire were so secure that the AI running the ship had little to worry about in terms of anyone escaping - but Loki never once had a prisoner materialize into a cell before without prior warning. For half a second, everything was silent as the nigh-omniscient and omnipresent soul of the dreadnought was taken by surprise. Then, warning sirens and the sound of incoming guards broke the calm.
And the breaking of the ship’s calm brought Isaac back to reality. He had failed them, all of them. All million of the people on Melpomene. The rigid android fell to his knees, shaking. He held his head in his hands. A million, as good as dead. Perhaps dead already. He had failed them completely. The veil had been broken, torn asunder. Then he was caught off guard by the agent of its destruction, and
