SW Sith TaskmasterSith Inquisitor Kozlov looked out at the starscape surrounding his star destroyer. His star destroyer. The corners of his mouth rose in pleasure at the sound of that. The Virulent was a monstrosity, it could easily take on the largest of the Republic's battleships or cruisers. However for this mission he required a far less imposing display of his burgeoning power. That was why the Virulent was here rendezvousing with the Mandalorian Warcruiser that hung in space besides it. The warcruiser was smaller than the star destroyer, but not by much. It was not the ship's size though which made it an imposing vessel in this case but rather the twin rail gun cannons hanging on the warcruiser's 'wings'. Inquisitor Kozlov had seen the damage those weapons could inflict and witnessed the brutal efficiency practiced by the owner of the warship. It was that man that Kozlov had need of now and the whole reason for this meeting.SW Sith Taskmaster10 hours ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

The creature gave Elder Warwick a big slobbery kiss by licking the side of his face which made him laugh. He then knocked the Elder down to the ground and nuzzled his forehead into Elder Warwick's chest while blowing air out of his big furry nose making little happy noises.
"Gunner, my old friend!" the Elder laughed, affectionately rubbing his cheek on the creatures long and wide snout. "How I've missed you."
When Nox and Ekko came down the steps, Gunner hopped on his front legs in excitement and went straight for Nox, giving Elder Warwick time to get back up.
"Oh no you don't, furball!" she laughed, holding down her long hair protectively but it was in vain when Gunner started to groom her as he purred. "Gunner!" she whined playfully.
Elder Warwick laughed

Fleeing an abusive family, Nathaniel 'Nano' Parker took his defenceless sister to Herontesuto Labs. He took her to a place that, unbeknownst to him, they would never escape. He allowed the scientists' to split them up, not expecting anything like an abusive father, and certainly nothing worse.
He should have known better.
The scientist didn't seem that clever. Indeed, as far as Nano could tell, there was nothing particularly ingenious about this man. He rolled the dice in his fingers, glancing up at the tall young man, pushing his glasses up his nose from where they had slipped.
"You going to play, Nathaniel?"
Nano grimaced at the nickname, but nodded. Nothing that terrible could happen, could it? "Stakes."
"You roll higher than me, I replace your arm. You roll lower, I do as I choose."
"Do you want to roll first?"
Nano shook his head. "Not at all. You go ahead."
The scientist smirked, shrugging. "Suit yourself." He rolled the dice. Wh

“Can we get any soap first?” Jeanette asked.

Mr. Felin sat watching the news, hopelessly. He was not yet used to the quiet which formed inside his once lively house. On T.V. a reporter was talking about a recent series of bizarre attacks, entire rows of houses burned down, mysterious disappearances. No one seemed to survive to explain it, but it was certainly a noticeable change. Anthony entered the room first. He sat quietly on the chair farthest from that of Mr. Felin. He watched for a few moments before quickly walking out to tell Richard. In the short time since they had met, he had become close with Richard and felt he would best lead the team. James returned home and the three headed to the epicenter of where the attacks had taken place. They hoped to find and finish off Leech once and for all.

Act 1: Team Galactic
Wednesday, 7:50 PM. Team Galactic HQ, Veilstone City
The little cab stopped at the far end of Veilstone City, where a tall building loomed. Grabbing his little suitcase, Ghetsis passed a wad of cash silently up to the driver as he looked at the Team Galactic building, and stepped out.
At the edge of the curb the staircase trailed far up to the gated entrance. The sound of the cab revving up and zooming away snapped Ghetsis out of his stupor, and he began the slow climb up. A long shadow covered the entire width of the street. Ghetsis squinted up at the spikes jetting from the sidewalls.
“Ah, Ghetsis!” said Saturn, standing at the top of the staircase. “Good to see you’ve arrived safely. Nice flight?”
Ghetsis grunted on the last step. “Yes, very much so.”

The moon hung high in the sky, like a vigilant watcher. Airachnid looks up at the moon and smiles, suddenly she heard an engine’s roar, and she turns around to see an APC charging at her. The APC rams her in her ankle, tripping her. She gets up and sees the APC transform into Saber, his body imposing and his face bears an almost exact resemblance to the very emblem of the Decepticons. “Saber, it’s been forever” Airachnid said with a devious smirk “to what do I owe this pleasure, Prince of the Decepticons”. Saber’s fiery green eyes glare at her “silence your tongue witch. Your betrayal to Lord Megatron and the Murder of Breakdown will no longer go unpunished.” Saber snarls.

"Stay with me," she murmured, not certain what possessed her to say it. It wasn't as though the currently unconscious man could hear him.
Then again, she did feel a sense of responsibility for the guy. She had, after all, knocked him out with a powerful sedative and then essentially begun performing brain surgery to remove a microchip that was implanted into his brain by Herontesuto Labs.
So maybe it was justified.

Rikku sat up, looking down at him, some spark deep within her igniting. "Oh, are you awake?"
She saw her mistake when he seemed confused, leaning over him. In English this time, she said, "Can you not understand Japanese anymore?"
"Why do you sound curious?"
Rikku, if she was not convinced that her emotions were such a lie, might have been confused. As she was, she pursued the conversation, showing him the chip, explaining about Herontesuto Labs and what had been done to him.

Transformers Prime S3 E2 Prime 12/2Around that time, the Vehicon guard was standing watch at the cell door, waiting for the other to come. For some strange reason, the Con hadn’t returned yet and he was getting a little worried. At first he thought that Vehicon got a little lost since the prison was sort of like a maze. But then there’s the news of the Autobots in the citadel, and although the news isn’t official, it scares him. If there is a chance that the enemy is intruding and must have taken the Con for questioning, then there could be a problem. As he was thinking about it, he heard metal footsteps close by and turned to the left where the first con left and remained steady in case the enemy is here. When he was waiting, he saw the one guard coming back, looking a little silent for some bizarre reason. But he sighed and decided to break the silence.Transformers Prime S3 E2 Prime 12/214 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

At the twentieth floor of Darkmount, two Vehicons were on guard at the front of the elevator, keeping watch and being on the lookout for the Neutrals or any other intruders. There have been word on the comms that the Neutrals must’ve brought the Autobots into the fortress through a modified ground bridge they might have been working on. To that end the entire army is keeping an optic out for any intruders, whether it be Bot or not. As they were on their guard, a ding was heard behind the elevator as they turned to see who was coming down. Approaching the metal doors, they opened up just so the drones could see who’s in them. But just then, they both saw Bulkhead with his wrecking balls armed and Wheeljack with his fists clenched, ready to deliver a major beat down.

The two then punched both drones hard that they were knocked out to the ground. The moment they were in deep stasi

Brunia awoke in her biological hibernation chamber aboard her personal flagship, a Harbinger class Void Ship she christened “The Reprisal for Treachery”. As she awoke her eyes opened and she could see the chambers layers open up much like coming out of an egg from a reptile.
As Brunia exited she could feel the gel of the chamber drip off her body. While this was rather unpleasant to feel in, it was nice and cool when she was in her slumber. Plus the gel acted as a sort of medical fluid that would soothe her and help fight against most wounds she suffered in battle.
As Brunia got out she started to yawn and look around her personal quarters of her Void Ship. While the ship was nothing short of eerie and scary she tried to make her personal chamber as accommodating to a semi-organic like hybrid such as herself. She knew the ship was trying to accommodate her as best it could, but it was not made to be her personal space yacht.
Brunia started to walk out of her chamber.

Nukes- ZoeythianZoey watched Blackrock Hold with a pained expression. Her coppery hair flickered like flames around her freckled shoulders, and she shivered in the autumn breeze. Brushing bangs from her eyes, she watched the magnificent structure, still unsure of why Duncan would plant a nuke under her home. What was wrong with Duncan? He always had a strange glint in his eyes. It was ugly and primitive, yet it also sparkled with a slightly crazy brilliance. It was cold like ice, and it scared her. No, she liked Rythian much better- his eyes were a beautiful purple, which was a strange color, but she liked it. He wouldn't ever do something this horrible- would he? She pushed that thought from her mind. Rythian wasn't like that.
