Maximum Comfort Anyone who was living in this odd mass of land, known as Alfatare, knew well ahead that life could either get pleasant in a hurry; or it could get just as ugly. Many of its denizens were heavily obese, thanks to the food provided by Ollenberg. Sure, there were also rumors of magical forests that also changed people around without having to eat at all, as well. Heck, even visitors from a faraway planet, seeking peace couldn't find solace. The point was, these days, a massive number of people were destined for certain obesity (mostly the natives or those who elected to spend their lives in Alfatare).Maximum Comfort17 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
Jo Greene was one of them. She was a longtime fan of the technological advances that made life easier, but now one of the head corporations in Ollenberg personally hand-picked her to drive over and test out their new "Maximum Comfort" system.
She may have been only 190 lbs., and frankly on the chubby side, but she was leading a life that demand

If Captain Richard Cameron wasn’t on the bridge when the Space Star Silver Streak went to yellow alert, a beeping sound came on in his quarters.
He was napping at the time, exhausted after a long workout in the gym. Dr. Strickland had told him he was gaining weight and his triglycerides were elevated. Naturally Strickland had drugs that could quickly correct the problem, but Cameron took pride in his body. He would take the drugs if he needed to, but he preferred to handle medical issues the old-fashioned way: with diet and exercise.
But he had to admit, giving up cheeseburgers would he hard... and probably wouldn’t last long.
The beeping awoke him; he had only been dozing. He could tap the intercom by his bedside and ask First Officer Frank Johnson what was going on, but he knew Frank wouldn’t signal a yellow alert unless the captain was needed.
He was already in uniform

Hannah felt the bullet hit her. It was as if time had slowed down. No, time had slowed down, but it hadn’t been enough for her to avoid the shot. She felt as it struck her where her collarbone met her right shoulder, felt as it pushed angrily through her and kept going to where it buried itself in the brick wall behind her. It didn’t hurt, though.
Since she hadn’t been able to avoid the bullet, she’d played her ace – her smooth skin took on a metallic shine, changing from its usual peach color to silver. When the bullet hit her shoulder, the impact blew the muscle and bone out of its way with a loud clang, and her upper arm formed flowing loops and swirls as it splashed out of the way. The strap of her tank top was shredded, but aside from the gaping hole and her arm hanging from her destroyed shoulder, she might as well have been hit by a squirt gun.
“Did that even hurt?

“Torture Droid! Get out of here! You’re in danger!”
Eric stood on the ground in front of the Judicial Building, watching as the entire Fireberd Fleet loomed over D.C. All of his robots and friends stood on the Fireberd, looking down at him.
“Master Eric!” Torture Droid spoke. “We’re here to save you!”
“No!” Eric growled angrily. “I told you I didn’t want to be saved. Save yourselves, dammit!”
The cops continued to aim their guns at the battleships. Soldiers were marching up below the ships and aiming heavy-duty guns as well. You know, rocket launchers and machine guns. The stuff that would hurt no matter how strong your armor is.
“Call off your robots!” the chief of police stated.
“I can’t!” Eric shouted at them. “They’re acting on their own.”
“So, it’s like the San Diego incident all over again.” The

Capital/ciudades importantes: Vulkan, la ciudad subterránea. 2 millones de personas
Tipos comunes: Fuego, Roca, Tierra, Fantasma
Descripción: Las constantes guerras por el control de Ignum Prime, planeta rocoso-volcánico abundante de minerales y recursos valiosos, acabaron dinamitando la ya frágil atmósfera del planeta. Sin contar con la peligrosidad de vivir en un planeta con 3 G de gravedad y temperaturas de entre 30 y 75 grados Celsius, claro.
La Armada Galáctica pronto tomó la protección del planeta y algunas entidades mineras empezaron a cavar una ciudad suberránea, a la que llamaron Vulkan, y que gracias a la agradable temperatura media de 20 grados y grandes generadores antigravitatorios que mantienen la gravedad a 1.25 G, la ciudad empezó a recibir visitas.
Vulkan, situada a unos 2 km bajo tierra, es una ciudad con varias capas llamados Estratos y elevadores e

Con un radio de 6500 km, una temperatura de entre -10 y +30 grados Celsius, una atmósfera respirable, y una gravedad de 1.03 G, parecía raro que este planeta tan similar a la Tierra no tuviese vida inteligente.

El resto del planeta está ocupado por grandes campos de cultivo y bosques de los que talar madera. Aproximadamente el 40% del planeta está sin explorar.
La capital, Nueva Alcudia, es una amplia megápolis principalmente de casas unifamiliares y rascacielos. Se construyó sin

“What time is it?” Noah asks his sister as he awakens from his sleep.
Haley looks at her watch and responds, “10 in the morning,” as she is heating of can of beans over a small, modest fire in a coffee can. They would never know what time it was if it weren’t for the watch she just got from their parents for her 16th birthday.
“You shouldn’t have let me sleep so long!”
“It’s fine. We’re safe here...for now. You are always letting me sleep longer than you anyways. And let’s face it, you needed it.”
Noah inhales sharply and takes in the savory smell of the beans. His stomach grumbles loudly. He glances around the dimly fire-lit basement of the empty house and his eyes stop at their rapidly diminishing supply of food and a knot forms in his stomach.
Looking back at his sister cooking, “Are you sure that’s a good idea?”
“Noah, we haven’t eaten in almost two days.

Ultimate F-ZERO: Chapter 72 Silverhawk was still resting in the tube, slowly gaining some kind of inner peace. The laboratory within the Falcon Fortress was quiet, save for a few laughs from E. Miru, and there was nothing much to worry about. All was well in the world. Silverhawk rhythmically breathed in tune with the bubbles generated from the pressure in the tube. But then, the man's face appeared.Ultimate F-ZERO: Chapter 7218 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Hello, Silverhawk." He said, showing his fangs in his smile.
Silverhawk acted as if nothing held him, and threw a powerful punch through the glass, and nobody was there to get hurt. Laughter filled the room, as Silverhawk continued looking for this mysterious man. The man said, "Over here!" Silverhawk rushed into a section with books, but couldn't find him. He then saw a woman he knew he shouldn't have seen: Tarantula. The difference was that she lacked many human features, as he truly looked more like a mythical monster. The creature bore horns on her head, with purple tips
