"Well, miss Gothenburg, I'm seeing what Project S is capable of, combat-wise. Since that happens to be his initial purpose that, due to earlier problems, still hasn't been tested properly... What else would I be doing?" Rancor replied in a voice so calm, that it sent chills down Cindy's spine. He acted so feelingless, near what seemed to be psychopathic, even.
She glanced at the young vampire, who lay on the floor convulsed and caught in his inner battle against a parasitic fluid that attempted to warp his mind. It was a battle that he was going to lose in only a few seconds. A ticking time bomb. Seconds that could mean the difference between life and death for Cindy. Her fate would either be sealed or not, depening on her actions here and now. ('Now's your chance, Cindy. Jab that self-defense syringe into him before it's too late!') her thoughts yelled at her. But she coul
Fatropolis!: 4--Body With A Will The clock was ticking for the odd region which was cursed to be the hotbed of gluttonous lifeforms. Not all inhabitants of the area wanted to be the way they were, which is why Julia Dean rushed over there. That, and to compile compelling research to prevent military might from cutting this area off from the rest of the continent.Fatropolis!: 4--Body With A Will15 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Unfortunately, Julia had been riddled by a pesky "inner fat girl." Whatever particles there were, they had a degree of influence on her hunger. For some reason, she was getting hungrier as the day went by, making it hard to work. Just recently, she resisted the urges, but she soon found that her body was starting to get a bit of control on her. At this moment, Julia had freedom; she needed to compile research now. She turned on the laptop, and began to write like her computer was going to die.
A few paragraphs in, hunger came knocking at her door, and more vigorously, now that she was actually looking well-fed.

Tracer entfernte vorsichtig die Abdeckung der Schalttafel, blickte durch das Nachtsichtgerät seine Helms und entschied, dass er statt des eintönigen Grüns Farben sehen musste. Er zog eine Stirnlampe aus der Gürteltasche, verringerte die Leuchtstärke und befestigte sie auf seinem Helm. Dann schaltete er die Nachtsicht aus und die Lampe an. Ein schwacher, enger Lichtstrahl fiel auf das elektronische Innenleben des Türöffners. Tracer studierte es aufmerksam.
„Es ist eine Standardausführung, nichts Besonderes“, sagte er schließlich erleichtert. „Gib mir eine Minute.“
„Lass dir nur Zeit“, erwiderte Hale leise. „Jetzt bloß nicht leichtsinnig werden.“
Sie kauerte etwa zwei Meter von Tracer entfernt und starrte durch ihr Nachtsichtgerät auf einen der Türme, wo sie die Wachstube vermutete. Ihr Mund war trocken, und sie hätte gerne einen Schluck Wasser genommen, aber
Interlock Pt 1Howard was pacing around the hallway of the maternity ward, anxious, sweating, and unable to sit still for more than a second. He had stood right by his wife, Marie, for the entire long, painful process, and upon seeing his newborn son for the first time, he had experienced the same feeling of absolute joy he had felt just three years prior with the birth of his daughter. It felt like a true miracle that they somehow managed to get two children when the odds of even getting one seemed against them medically, and that’s why, when the obstetrician said he needed to examine the child in private for a moment, Howard had started feeling nervous. Was the baby going to be healthy? Was he going to have any defects? Did he make a mistake trying for another child? The questions rushed through his mind like a chaotic whirlwind, and the answers weren’t coming anywhere near as quickly as he would’ve hoped. Marie had told him to wait outside to meet the doctor upon his return, seemInterlock Pt 17 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

The day after the sun finally rose from the shadows, the couples awoke from their short slumber waiting to embrace the morning event. Last night was indeed a pleasant sleep for them as it did replenish all their energy and spirit. With that explained they will soon start their day with some appetizing breakfast.
“Morning for you Altre.” said Yumni.
“Morning for you Yumni.” Altre replied.
Yumni then opened the curtain that lit the room with its shining ray, which makes her happy to see the outside world from a high up panoramic view. Amaze she was of the populace of the village already outside, to do their routine they had begun.
“I should try to serve a nice meal.” said Altre.
“I will help with the spices if you do not mind.” Yumni replied already on her way to the kitchen.
“This time we will do it right.” said Altre once he was on his way.

“Well we made it in one piece.” Shay exclaimed to the Corans making a hand movement over to the tram behind him.
“Really a public tram?” Liz disclaimed with frustration looking at the white tram with a green strips on it.
“It will take us to the boarder a lot faster than by car or foot. Plus it did not help that y’all came out of the blue, so this was the best I can on short notice. The bright side is that you may see more of the way of life here in Altrea.” Shay said sounding reassuring.
“Do we have to pay?” Ben asked out of the blue.

There was at least one aspect of this set up that impressed Kent. It proved to him that someone had done a little research on the subject that did not include source materials from recreational carnivals or bad movies. The Rennies had their banquet set up with some sort of historical accuracy. The table that he was sitting at, beside Jim Dove, was definitely accurate to the fourteenth century style of banquets. Dove was sitting on the highest stool, with Kent just below him. Everybody at the table sat on only one side. It was a detail that movies quite often missed. An army of servants were on the other side, rushing up and down it, and constantly filling plates and wooden mugs. Kent got the impression that they were all well practiced at this. Dove also mentioned the jousting and tournament games that were scheduled for later in the day. It sounded like they were also practiced at those activities as well.

After the first performance and their first official investigation of Nico Robin’s whereabouts, Kaku and Astrid were able to relax from the stage and do what they know best. In the main hall of the casino, the two assassins made sure that their backup members were nowhere to be seen. With them around, it would be almost impossible for them to actually complete their mission. The two decided to split up and cover more ground. At this rate, any evidence suggesting that Miss All-Sunday was Nico Robin was essential to their mission. The faster that they would be able to uncover and confirm her, the faster they could get out of there and away from one of the Seven Warlords. Their biggest risk of the mission was Crocodile. If he were to ever discover their true identity, it would compromise them. His anger and power would risk their lives and the exposure of CP9.
Astrid had wandered into the hallway where Crocodile’s main office was. She calmly approached the door and stopped jus

“Alyssa!!” Amy shouted, holding up her favorite evening dress. The dress was covered in pink glitter and designed with random jewels on the skirt. “What happened” her twin sister, Allie said, walking in the room.
“Alyssa happened. I was going to wear this for that grand machine opening this week but she ruined it!” Amy hissed. Allie examined the dress. The dress was black but the glitter was spilled on the top and the jewels was fixed on the skirt part. It was definally ruined.
“Oh Amy, just try something else. The dress made you look fat anyway” Allie said. “Really Allie, fat! It's the puffy skirt” Amy said, tossing the dress down.
“Heh heh” a voice made the twins turned. “I thought it needed to shine more” Alyssa smiled. Alyssa was 11-year-old and in the 5th grade. She sh

"Tombstone rubbing?" asked Rattrap.
"It's a human thing. They take paper and place it over the grave, and with a pencil, they trace the grave."
"Got a pencil and paper?"
A loud scream echoed around the mountains. "Shit! That was Blackarachnia!" Cheetor was about to take off running, only to stop when he realized Rattrap wasn't moving. "You know," he said to the rat Maximal. "Optimus said you'll move when you feel like it, well, I feel that is now!" And he grabbed him and strapped him to his back tight, no matter how many times Rattrap squirmed.
The two Maximals followed where they last heard the screams, and saw a frightening sight: a Maximized Silverbolt pulling on a pair of spider legs sticking out of the ground. A white hand flicked him away, and sucked Blackarachnia into the ground.
"What was that thing?!" screamed Rattrap.
Coulter Keller: Mini Character Study"I’m not greedy!" The Bogeyman’s fist slamming onto the table raised a few eyebrows from the Defenders’ newest, but veterans like Kiki, Shashi, and Blue merely pursed their lips and narrowed their eyes, knowing fully well what was about to come.Coulter Keller: Mini Character Study10 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"I am not greedy," Coulter repeated, though her voice lacked the fire from before. "I just know that money makes the world go round. And if that’s the game man is playing, I sure as hell am not planning on losing."
(From ‘Ghost Story’)
I think this is one of Coulter Keller’s most important lines, and it sums up her character quite well, not only for the readers, but for the characters (mainly Ljotur and Hildegarde) too. After this, she goes on to explain her backstory, which shows why business and money are so important to her.
Long story short, Coulter’s parents were very, very poor, and her country’s government did nothing to combat poverty. They lived in almost inhumane conditions

Shit, I’ve never been this shaken up since the aftermath of Therum. Just the very memory of the lava planet was enough to get my skin crawling. But thinking about having to deal with varren is not what I call the greatest of all moments in the game. I mean, you wouldn’t want to be shaking over with having to go through a mission that involved killing creatures that you find fascinating as well as frightening. But the memory of Urz and Eezo make me think they are the cutest creatures in the entire galaxy! Not unless they weren’t proper trained, mind you. My shaking pretty much goes noticed by Kaidan and Liara, but if they did see it, they weren’t paying much attention. Kaidan was continuing to lead the way and I’m shaking like a leaf.
Our shields aren’t designed to handle melee combat, they’re meant to stop bullets, and not jaws of fucking death that would no doubt tear our faces clean off! Motherfucker, why can’t I stop shaking so much? I

Michael had kept his baffled expression up from the very moment this mysterious duplicate of his had set to cleaning up the mess on the floor, and then long after his task had been completed. Much as it was beginning to try on the doppelganger’s patience, he couldn’t really blame the boy; as far as he knew, this mirror image of himself had just popped up from nowhere and started calling him “master” for no apparent reason. Obviously he was in need of answers.
“I…I-I, uh…You…uh...” Michael stuttered in response, the shock still too great for him to form a coherent thought, let alone a coherent sentence. This was apparently enough for this identical stranger however, as he decided to take this as a good time to start accounting for his appearance.
