Seppuku had raided the Federation's nuclear facility, and now the big secret was out—at least to Earl. As for Chiya, she would remain unaware of Seppuku's background for an unknown amount of time. Undoubtedly, there would be future issues because of Seppuku's discovery. He desired to kill Black Shadow at whatever the cost. He could kill himself by detonating the nuclear warhead, or he could kill Black Shadow without it and return to Earth—where he'd most likely spend a lifetime in prison. Earl didn't like to envision either scenario, but of the two, he chose to support the imprisonment of his friend.
Chiya and Earl were both sleeping once again. Earl had gotten a late start, however, since he had been hiding himself in Seppuku's office for much of the night, anticipating that the Man of Darkness would have returned late at night—which he did. Chiya had decided to sleep in her regular attire for once, including her hat. Oddly enough, Earl did quite the same,

Since my adolescence, I have felt that I did not belong to this mundane world or its dull people. But I'm stuck in it. Once, in my first years in Bangkok, I dreamed of the interior of a spaceship. Then I woke up.
I may not be the only one who wants to leave.
In December, a man of my age in a remote city dreamed of being taken away by aliens. It was not the usual reported alien abduction. He wanted to leave. So many nights he had dreamed of other lands and even other planets; but he knew only two in our system can support us: Mars and Venus. They have surfaces like our earth.
Like me, he began by dreaming of the craft exterior. Then he dreamed of the interior. There were flashing lights and electronic devices that our aircraft later would use. But the pilot was, or seemed to be, absent. Nonetheless, the craft was moving. He was calm and concealed his excitement. He was leaving earth behind.
He awoke the next morning at usual time and went about his tasks, feeling differe

"In the warm afternoon sun"
The last dying noises of the battle were dissipating quickly as the air was still trembling from the last waves of a spell. Everyone was sheathing their weapons just as Cole’s voice, sweet as young honey, started droning in his typical monotony.
“Maker help me. I want to lick the sweat between your breasts. I want to kiss the scars on your soft skin. I want to bite your tight muscles until you moan and exhale my name in my ears...”
The Inquisitor slowly turned her head until her eyes were fixed on the naive spirit’s in a steel gaze. “Cole? How many times have I talked to you about this? Thoughts are private things, that’s why people don
LightThe fog came faster than I had expected; it fell upon me like a great dark hawk, and I could see but three yards before me before the world was consumed by this moonless night. Or perhaps it was not moonless, but that blessed brightness did not reach me, for even light was swallowed up but a short distance away, smothered by the thickness of the air.Light4 days ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
So were it not that luck or fate or plans unknown to me set a guide ‘cross my path to lead me on, I would surely have been lost. But as it happened, a dim and smoky glow appeared in the fog, first gray, then rusty, then orange, then gold, and within it a shadow emerged, coalesced, solidified into a shape, and became an android.
Breathless, I called for guidance, and with neither beep nor buzz nor spoken word, that wondrous machine turned and strode onward. Though now hidden from me, the optic lights – golden binary stars frozen in that vast space of fog before me – set the fog ablaze, and though this light revealed little

She was dressed all in black, the long dress trailing behind her, accented with silver embroidery at the waist and collar that sparkled in the hall's brilliant lights, which also caught in and threw reflections off of the shiny black beading within those silver designs. The gloves her mother had arrived, breathless, with this morning – 'An early present from Kaz' – graced her hands. She still didn't feel comfortable without something on her arms, but the graceful swoops and beading of these left her fingers free, a reminder of the freedom she had somehow gained to meet flesh with flesh. They, too, were black, and she smiled and tried not to cry – 'Just your color,' the note had read. The scoundrel.

I'm so happy, today I just received confirmation from the board to conduct my experiment. Of course after in being rejected by the board many time before, for reasons of it being risky and all, it was finally accepted. So, I had a theory, a few months back, that if we wanted humanity to survive, we would have to find a weakness in the creatures that's been attacking us lately. So I plan on capturing one of them (hopefully, with no fatalities) and finding out the source of their powers. Oh, I didn't tell you yet?
These creatures seem to have supernatural abilities. If you want to know what they look like, here is a description, they look as if their human, with the exception of them having tails and cat ears. They don't sound threatening do they? But, these creatures are not to be underestimated. Under no circumstances, you must not under

The invading race of cybernetic extraterrestrials had surrounded Earth and were conducting a full scale siege of the fragile planet. As the ominous armada advanced forward, the planet's last line of defence fought back valiantly, but to know avail. They emptied clouds of bombs and bullets into the enemy's shields in a desperate attempt to break through. If they could penetrate their defences, they could easily storm inside and blow them up from the inside out.
“But we can't get inside, can we?” The commander retorted sarcastically, becoming frustrated.
“Maybe we can send in some Piercer drones or something.” His second-in-command replied.
“We tried that, they just slammed into shields and exploded.” The commander sighed, and held his head in his hands.
The soldier sat there beside, not sure why he was here. He was experienced with a sniper-rifle, maybe they expected him to be able to pick out some weak po

Lucina felt as is if she was punched in the stomach, as she fell to her knees, in comeplete horror at what she heard

I brush off the thought of loved ones quickly and pay attention to the doctor’s cold flesh on my hand. She taps her foot on the floor and gazes around impatiently. Her hands are chilly and callus. What had she done? What had she accomplished in life? What are her dreams? I wasn’t about to speak out loud. I had to keep this neutral state of mind. What had I accomplished? What were my dreams?

“How easy would it be to simply place someone’s personality on a disc, and slip in in a computer?” They had asked.
This is a game of russian roulette, from my perspective. But it’s for science. I could wake up as a soul out of my body, or not at all. Maybe I wouldn’t be able to feel myself awaken. Maybe my thoughts will be dead with my muscles and senses.

Its wires were twisted out of place and ripped to shreds. Its joints twitched occasionally, and flat out became spastic when someone passed by as it tried to extend an arm in a desperate plea for help.

Chrom's NightmareTwo years after the battle with Validar and Grima, Chrom became ruler of Ylisse and the halidom prospered. However, this prosperity is hindered by remnants of the Grimleal religious sect, which started raiding small towns after the battle with Grima.

FYS: The Visitor, Part ThirteenAhn blinked, looking around the new chamber. It appeared to be an office she guessed, judging from the desk. The walls were panels covered in gray cloth, pictures pinned to them, some alien landscapes, some of cities built in strange architectural styles, some of small aliens she guessed were children. A display screen directly in front of her showed what must have been an exterior camera view from the Explorer looking at the Great Hope's bulk. Her people's ship looked battered, a pair of great, gaping holes at least fifty kilometers across puncturing the port side, from some ancient collision that had damaged the ship, killing a quarter of her people. She wondered if that was a strange sort of mercy, given their current state.FYS: The Visitor, Part Thirteen1 week ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

Showered and groomed after stowing my space suit and its liners, I return to the bench. The wood is silent.
I run my finger down the smear on the wall, ruby drops falling from my thumb as it acts as a dam against the runnels. Claret splats upon the floor.
Grasping the stick, I flex it gently. The tacky load at the opposite end yields slightly, instead of making the wood crack in protest at being torn between two unyielding forces.
With a grin, I wrap my fist around the wood, one finger at a time, reciting ‘this little piggy’ under my breath. As the last piggy goes to market, I lift.
With a faint ‘shlurk’, the payload lifts with the wood. Any moment now.
My tongue furrows the surface and keen cold competes with a rush of flavour. Another triumph.

On the bridge of the Administrator II/i, the admin sat in the captain's seat. The ship itself was an emergency vessel he had constructed in case the Administrator II had to be abandoned. The warship sat incomplete on a plateau with Nether rock growing up its sides and anchoring its wreck permanently. The admin twiddled his thumbs with his head hung low.

Jessica looked up from her view screen with a smile; by now she knew the distinct nasal quality of Niobe’s voice, even before she saw the girl peering around the entrance of her cramped personal alcove.
Niobe was fifteen, three years younger than she. Her diminutive stature and waifish appearance prompted Jessica to believe her even younger upon their first meeting a week ago. Greeting the new arrival, Niobe identified herself as an acolyte, no mere prospective member of the Arborists. Jessica was at first surprised, then impressed.
While initiates were known by the pale, ash-gray two-piece ensembles they wore, acolytes were garbed in a simple, sleeveless shift of ivory-colored, rough-spun fabric that came to their knees with a ragged hem. As a final act of supplication to the order, their hair was shorn close to the skull. The absence of hair made her large, sable eyes more prominent in her oval-shaped face, made even more lustrous by a

He'd gotten called up to deal with another psycho. A college girl had been scanned and gone berserk. Killed an officer and bolted through the alleys. They'd managed to cordon off the area and trap her in a run-down apartment complex. She was trapped, and apparently was taking hostages. But from experience, he knew that psychos never kept hostages.
He walked inside with a sluggish step and looked around. Obvious signs of disturbance and a struggle. An overturned table, smashed ornaments, a wooden staircase railing lay on the ground floor, underneath a puddle of blood and a limp corpse.
Well, this was going to be something.
