I think that now I’m beginning to fill up a container of boredom I didn’t know I had, and I’m writing simply to say that today was like the day before it- which was like the day before that. It’s not even a thread of normalcy, it just feels empty and dull. I walked forty miles today; my legs say it might be more than that. Maybe fifty. I haven’t bothered to look for any signs since the last ones I found were pointing towards Ottawa. Peter’s fine: amusingly cheerful. Edward’s still gone: annoyingly throwing off my normalcy. And I’m stuck. I’m tired of the sight of pale trees and twisted, warped roadway; I’m tired of it getting colder and knowing that sooner or later I’m going to wake up at night and my jacket isn’t going to be enough. I’m not complaining about my job, I suppose, I just haven’t talked to any (alive) people for a good number of days, my food is running low, an
Silent ScreamsI heard the nuke from a mile away. It was a horrifying sound, like a thousand amps screaming with off-key, badly played drum solos. Chunks of metal, stone, and burning wood rained from the sky like a post-apocalyptic hailstorm. Then I heard it. Her scream. Zoey's scream was like nothing I had ever heard before- it chilled my blood even more than an Enderman's gaze, a high-pitched sound of horror and pure pain. Teep's eyes widened, and claws closed grimly over his rifle. He met my eyes, and we both sprinted to the remains of BlackRock Hold.Silent Screams57 minutes ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Zoeya! Technomage! Where are you?!" I was shouting at the top of my lungs, and even contemplated ripping down my mask in order to be louder. Pieces of rock covered the ground around a huge crater where BlackRock used to be. A layer of ash and sparks covered the ground, and my shoes were hot at the soles. Nevertheless, Teep and I were determined to find the girl we loved. Tears began to run down my cheeks. I tried not to cry, ever, because these tear

Dark Voids fleet moved towards the Braxxian fleet guardian the planet Seris. As the Void Ships moved ominously closer and closer towards their prey, they appeared more like a school of sharks’ rather than actual space vessel fleet. When they got just close enough Storm ordered then entire fleet to halt.
“Now for my plan, ready all the Assimilator Canons. We shall strike first and strike best.” Storm ordered to her crew members.
The Dark Void fleets Harbingers all readied their special weapons. Storm knew these long range particle canons would invoke havoc on the Braxxians and they would be unprepared for the surprise she had in store for them.
“Are all canons ready?” Storm asked one of subordinates
“Yesss my Queeeen one of the creatures” replied back to her.
“Good, fire on my command. Oh, and hail a comm signal with the Braxxian flagship. I want to enjoy this. “
Storms underlings did as they were told. On the monitor she saw what ap

Boop. A tired hand floats away from the alarm and covers an even more tired face. A man groans and gets out of the bed, today is a work day. He stretches and yawns, rubbing the sleep from his dark blue eyes. Then the German shuffles over to the bathroom. He presses a button near the sink, and a cascade of water, if you could even call it that, pours out.
The man does not drink it. Instead, he collects the water in a large glass bowl and heats it. After all, the germs must be killed.
BE-DO-BE-DO! He walks over the heater and turns it off. Taking the bowl in his hands, the German pours it carefully into a strange device. The purifier was pricey, but the man depended on it to take out the toxins in the liquid. He pours some of the water out into a thermos. Finally, the man uses the remaining water to wash his face. He raises a round, metal bar and places it in his mouth. A bright light flashes, making his ch

Recreation Deck, Hierarchy Vessel ‘Arcadias’ – 18:20 Zulu – 26th January 2183 CE
Crewmen were bustling up and down the passageway; the recreation decks’ corridor practically heaved with the dozens of Arcadias service personnel who’d recently finished their shifts. Liaison Officer Valni Severan and Head Artificer Djamil Leptis strode purposefully between them, chatting animatedly as they made their way to the training area.
“You’ve had them a couple of days now, what do you honestly think of the humans?” she asked the artificer.
“Sir?” Leptis seemed confused. “I gave you my opinion of our guests.”
“You gave me an evaluation based on merit. I’d like to know how you feel about the humans muscling in on your turf.” She flash
Thalia's Tale - Chapter 18 - The Mourning Process The sky was thick with clouds at dawn. It seemed like the sky was begging to rain but it was just barely holding back. The down was cold and gray. Thalia was glad she had her red Skylord’s blazer to keep her warm as she walked out onto the deck. It was silent. The rest of the crew had gone and taken a well deserved rest. As soon as Venom had gone to the pirate’s side, the ship turned and went off.Thalia's Tale - Chapter 18 - The Mourning Process4 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Thalia tried to get some sleep herself, but it just wasn’t working. Considering what had happened the previous night, it was understandable. She had gone out onto the deck with the intention of being alone, but she quickly realized her intentions were in vain.
Sitting on the railing of the ship was the last person still around that Thalia could rely on. He appeared to be reading

Captain Lasky's POV
That night I slept terrible. I just couldn't fall asleep and when I did, the next time I woke up, I woke up in a cold sweat and was very dizzy. But it all passed. Or at least that's what I thought.
Master Chief's POV
I was laying on the bed that was cut out of the wall in my quarters just taking time to rest. That night, I couldn't help but think about what the captain was explaining how he he had the feeling that he was being watched. I mentally went through the trip on the Pelican from the time we stepped foot on board to the time everyone stepped off, looking for any unusual behavior. I could't think of anyone aboard the Pelican who would want to harm the captain anyway.
"Sir is this a good time?" My thoughts were interrupted by the shipboard AI's voice.
"No it's not a bad time," I replied as I sat up on my elbows to get a look at my friend. Roland looked like a past airman wearing the aviator goggles and the jacket. The yellow hue of his color shone as

Master Chief's POV
It was home to me. The Infinity became my home after the crew rescued me in when I floated around in the wreckage of the Diadact's ship. Of course when the news spread that I was alive, I didn't stay idle for long.
But I was thankful that they gave me sometime to mourn for my fallen friend Cortana.
It was strange not to hear her voice inside of my head either joking around or telling me my next move. I miss that and it made my heart ache and long for her voice just to cut through the silence.
I jumped slightly when I heard a knock at the door to my quarters.
"Come in," I curtly replied.
The door swung open and in walked a young female I have come to know as my little sister. Jade was my actual little sister. She was only four when I was taken to become a Spartan. Then shortly after she was taken too.
"So what brings you out here? have you come to harass me with your charm?" I joked with her.
"Can't a little sister come visit her big brother after not seeing

A lone figure walked into a shop on the square in Argon. A newly established human colony on earth. This shop in particular shop carried anything you can imagine to cut down pests.
He walked in kind of slowly as if he was expecting someone to stop him en-route. He scanned his surroundings before walking up to the cashier.
"What can I help you with?" The man behind the counter questioned.
"I need a poison one that only Covenant can cure. The worst kind you carry if you can," the figure stated.
"I have to ask what you plan to do with it before I hand it to you," the cashier inquired further.
But the lone figure didn't answer. Instead he pulled out a gun and pointed it towards the shop keeper.
"Do it with no more questions asked otherwise I will have to blow a hole in you skull!" The man demanded.
The man slowly searched for what the figure asked for all the while keeping a close eye on the Magnum that the figure had pulled.
"Just take it, it's yours" the keeper said as he shakil
Transformers Prime: Airachnid Vs. Saber Airachnid patrols the Depths of her Forest. It was two weeks after Breakdown’s demise by her hands, yet it felt like centuries. 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.

A woman with hair that is apparently naturally green walked up to him and said, “there is no room here so you have to go to the principal’s office”. John sighed and had to walk across the whole length of the building. He briefly thought about ditching detention but knows that he would get into huge trouble when Professor Scales found out.
When he got to the principal’s office he felt a strange pressure in the air that made him stop short of the door. He stepped forward and knocked on the door. It opened and John nervously walked in and the door eerily closed by itself. John has been to the principal’s office once before a

-Time. You always don't seem to understand the concept of it, - Weaver shook head, giving Alex a reproachful look, - You Humans either have no understanding of Time. You either hurry too much or think you have all the Time in the Universe. Basically that last one is mostly your problem. Time is everything, it is everywhere around us.
-You are discovering a wheel for me right now here, - Hemmed Alex ironically. Weaver looked at him, sighed:
-See, you don't even want to listen to what I say. You have no idea of what there will be coming, yet you already want to just make fun of it and end this conversation.
-I... - Alex froze with helpless expression.
-"I..." - Mockingly laughed Weaver, - Just be quiet. You will save me a lot of time like that. As I was saying - we are surrounded by time. And you are wasting that time. Millions of seconds each day. Not that I say that we never waste time. It occurs, it is a natural state of things for living things - to waste time spontaneously witho

"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.
"Nano?" she said after a long silence, in which

They could only stand in amazement at the sight of the huge man. The legendary warrior who had stood against an army of Sawalanites with just a small troop of Magriosas. The man who had become a legend in this part of the world. And now they were at the mercy of the legendary royal General.To Play The Game part 5811 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The General was smiling as he beheld the six prisoners.
"Small world. And the stories of your adventures have spread even to this place. But what do bring you here honestly?"
"Long story," Wolfgang replied. "But we have no quarrel with you or Magriosa, we're just passers through. Our mission is to find a woman named Lakotah, she is the only one who can stop the menace that is Berazael."
The General squinted his eyes as an old suspicion nagged at him.

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."

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 Taskmaster15 hours ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
