He was about four, and little did the young toddler know they were currently evacuating Earth, for if they didn't now it would become too hot later.Search for the New Earth- Sneak Peak- flashback #210 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"I know honey but we're almost there!" His mother replied, running through the crowd and dragging Tyler along by his hand.
"MA'AM!" Tyler's mother's sprint was cut short by a panicking woman jumping in her path. The woman was crying, sweat and tears dripping down her face. "Please take him! They won't let me on the ship! Please keep him safe!"
The strange woman shoved a toddler into the other mothers arms, the young boy sobbing in panic. He was babbling, unable to talk but reaching his arms towards his true mom.
Tyler's mother stares at the boy in shock, but gives a sad, sympathetic nod to the other woman. "I'll keep him safe. From this point on I will raise him as my own, don't worry. He'll be safe."
The woman sobbed in relief as Tyler and his mother, al
Incorruptible Ch 1 Prison (Sneak Peek!)It was, I had to admit, a perfect prison. My first full day in it had been spent trying to probe it, figure out a way out. I had to give Eric credit for not falling into any number of traps his Whiteout-altered mind would have pointed him at. No matter how far gone he may be into his messianic delusions, he was still a genius. Instead of relying entirely on the unreal Pushtech devices as I would have thought, the Crusaders had started with a nice, solid cargo container and just added on to it. There was almost nothing unreal to the cell: just reinforced steel and locks. Just the right thing to hold me in.Incorruptible Ch 1 Prison (Sneak Peek!)9 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Three months ago, when Eric, better known these days as Epic, had thrown the switch and caused all of reality to twist and turn, I was one of the few people who resisted it. As a free bonus gift, I could ignore the unreal changes around me. If this had been created using the super-science of those superhuman beings called the Pushed, I c

It was fifteenth day, at 5:00 AM, and we had to make our swift move to sneak into the community controlled by Davis Harrison High while the factions and the principal remain distracted by their debates over the crisis. Three cops were guarding the north gate while we were stealthily climbing up the western half of the wall near Johnny’s residence. Each person climbed and then jumped down safely as we prepared our long journey to the west. Chester, however, made himself an alternate route by going through a secret, underground opening that led him directly to us with Waffles leading the way for his owner. The two companions brought with them the supplies needed for our journey into the northwest destination leading to Davis Harrison High in the hopes of enlisting its football team into our company. My sister remained within the Wall to keep a track on the whole society we were leaving from. It was during this day that the wall surroun
Of Stars and Stripes. Ch. 1. Scene 3It was never really quite clear, the exact order in which everything went to hell. Quinn would often reflect upon this years later, when filing an accident report or …god forbid….a notification. It started much quieter than he would’ve thought. A terrible silence filled with a kind of slow motion horror. The Pandora arced gracefully toward the rendezvous point, her bright engines glistening happily. Quinn was sipping his coffee when the garbled mayday crackled over the loudspeaker…the panic stricken voice of some young wom---a bright flash of light like a miniature sun rent the mug from Quinn’s grasp. It fell in slow motion as, all at once it seemed, the fabric of space-time tore just starboard of Pandora, a small cargo ship, spewing atmosphere and arcing electricity, rolled not one hundred meters past her nose. The light doubled as Quinn looked up, horror setting in on his face as he watched the Navitas lurch to port and spew gouts of orange and blue flamOf Stars and Stripes. Ch. 1.

STARSHIP OF THE DELPHI INITIATIVE, DATE AND TIME UNKNOWN
The gunship detached its boarding corridor from the ATC Bernadette and moved away from the prone freighter, which was oblivious to its impending destruction.
On the bridge of the Delphi craft, its captain gave the order to detonate the explosives in the Bernadette’s hangar. The cargo ship vanished in a spherical blast of fire and let loose a shockwave that rattled the departing vessel. Anyone to happen upon the Bernadette’s last bearing would find just enough evidence to conclude that the ship had grazed a star and simply been utterly vaporized.
Just an accident, as its former captain Garrison Yeardley had said.
Suzie Trask slumped against the wall of the holding cell in the belly of the ship, s

It was the thirteenth day since the incident, and still the small number of scouts sent to carefully investigate the Greathorn Plains traced no sign of Barrick or Sandy. However, they did give me proof of the existence of another intelligent species, which was the very same species that was responsible for the capture of my remaining comrades back at the events of the chaos. With their support at my side, I showed to Mr. Richards, the principal in charge of our community. Shocked to see that the photos were unaltered and highly accurate, he soon came to agree with me, though he was doubtful of the fact that Sandy and Barrick were still alive. The more skeptical members of his council, including Mrs. Stewart, dismissed my evidence as “false proof made only to spur fear into the hearts of their society”. I pitied the ignorance of such critics and noticed that very few teachers, including Mr. Ferguson, the history teacher, had agreed wi
The Origin of Cow GirlIn the year 2939, the tyrannic president Edwin Romney came into power. By his 3rd year in office, he grew power-hungry, burning the Constitution and the Declaration of Independance then began a coup that engulfed half the country.

It is also tragic, how even the longest peace must end sometime, and open its windows to the dark skies of war.
Or maybe, the peace, just like the dreams was never real? Perhaps it’s always just a silence before the storm, fooling the world into believing the clouds will never come…
If that was the case, Lucky would like the world far better. She would have known this sort of orders would come. She would have known her slumber could not be eternal, and perhaps prepare, stead of dreaming of a place she would rather be in.
But alas, humans and mutants alike have been given the unfortunate abi

After finding his companions, Leer decided that they should take a break in the town of Grune, and maybe replenish their supplies now that there are three of them. Meanwhile, Denziel continues to approach random women, much to Zev's annoyance. Ignoring the Elf, the fox notices a familiar face in town.
Amber was looking at a booth sailing gels ad magic lens.* hmm how many gels well I need?
Denziel went back to the party and looked at the direction Leer is looking. "My, what a fine young lady you're looking at there!" the Elf exclaimed, "Is she someone you know, perhaps?" The fox responded with a nod, followed by a bark from his dog which translates to "Don't you even dare to do something funny!" Anyway, the Elf ignored Zev and proceeded to approach Amber.

“Lady Anak, do the Sisters paint?” Windridge, Ari and I studied the Image of the courier and the ground around it.
Anak raised a curious eyebrow at my question. [Do you mean for work or amusement?] She crouched on the ground near us, her legs folded under her.
“Either, though I think we’ll need a lot of paint for what I’m thinking.”
“And what are you thinking?” Ari asked.
“Can the Sisters recreate the color of the Free Worlders armor? Can they do it quickly?”
Ari frowned. “Can’t your armor do that for itself, sergeant? The chameleon feature I mean. ”
“I’m afraid not, milady, it’s programed to imitate background colors and textures only. Though I can see requesting such a feature for future marks.”
