The cave was dark. The night outside was cold. The thunder outside echoed deafeningly against the cave walls even though there was no end to the labyrinth of a cave system in sight.
As I walked through the cave, I couldn't help but wish that Dan could have joined me on my expedition for some gold - butter - ore. Cave knew the caves better than anyone. His name had a meaning, after all.
I was almost certain I was close to the surface as I heard raindrops pounding above me. I couldn't help but smile as I quickened my pace, holding my torch up high.
Then a terrifyingly familiar scream split the air and I stopped dead in my tracks, my blood running cold. My eyes widened and I spun around to look into the darkness of the cave behind me. "Adam." I whispered. I broke into a run back into the cave. "Adam!" I shouted, calling out to him.
He didn't respond. I ran faster. Wherever he was, he was in trouble. I had to

Chapter 29 – Endings
With a dip of her head and a long breath, Marley dropped to her knees and clutched herself. She felt peace from the top of her head to the ends of her toes. The soul fluttered around her a few times before darting over to Jessica, who stood with the others.
Picking herself, Marley embraced her friends as one as the tears streamed down her cheeks. Jessica’s face flowed with health and calm even before the soul slipped into her hands.
Marisa asked, “Is it over? Is she gone?”
On her knees before the mass of Simona’s frozen form, Mona answered, “Yes, she’s gone. Living but without thought or the ability to harm us. Her failsafe EMP, she wasn’t lying about that, should be deactivated in just a moment. I don’t wish on her a long life in this state…”
Nicolas sniffled a little and coughed as he noted, “I’m…not exactly sure what happened here…”

The start of the Task Force, contrary to what the press said or the scuttlebutt seems to think, was actually a phone call. It was early morning when it came down from the President himself, using a burn phone to contact the man who'd be in charge of it all. He heard the familiar ringing and looked at his watch. 2:36 A.M EST, April 24th, 2023. He'd have someone record it later, when he got the orders across.
The man in question however, was dead asleep, bundled up under his lover's covers with his arms around his girlfriend of several months. They had just spent a wonderful night together and were now finally asleep. Aside from the claw marks and bites on both of them, they seemed peaceful.
The woman began to stir. She felt the urge to use the bathroom and so she stood up, careful not to disturb her lover as his mouth hung open in his sleep. She smiled and brushed his gray hair from his cheek to give it a small kiss. She shivered a bit, being completely in th

Noel was completely disarmed. His other three sword were also destroyed. His anger was subsided due to the multiple punching & kicks he had been receiving.
"Boy... it hurts... To think such fakes could landed such hits," Noel thought as he reminisced the moments before his defeat.
He was charging into the remaining doppelgangers. But just as he was about to slash one of them... a heavy parry with hammer that broke his sword, then a blunt pierce by the hammer wielder, then a series of physical assaults. And as the finale, Fake Takeo kicked him & sent him flying a distance back, as if he was a soccer ball.

My home is my territory, a cracked stone fortress among hundreds, thousands of pitter-patter feet that pass by without a suspicion on why such a peculiar yet charming boy couldn't find a place more accommodating. The answer is: if I leave my crumbling rock to nature and greedy others, it will die. And I will too.
But if I am alone, then I'm still breathing.
I'm exhausted of the stereotypes, labeling and strangling me as 'different' and 'dangerous' because I have something no one else holds. I am 'creepy' because I don't speak to many others. I am 'delusional' because I can hear the ghosts wailing in your souls. I am 'psychotic' because I can unlock my mind's full potential instead of crushing it in human, confined walls.
I am unusual, but I am whole. I am one,
AA: CAE: Group 030Hamel's family were from the poacher raid back in the late 2550's. His grandparents came over with the Yolilitzli to be helped in being nursed to health, and in time his father was born and found a mate together in the tribe, whom also was born from parents of such a fate. So Hamel was the result of another breeding, the first born so he had all the attention of his parents (though not so much the Matrens as there were plenty of pups running around). Hamel was a playful pup who enjoyed getting into simple trouble. Though he would never try to be cruel intentionally and usually tried to fix things if he made a mistake and was told so to the best of his abilities.AA: CAE: Group 0303 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Hamel much preferred being the leader of his little clique, and usually didn't like others encroaching on that. Of course it was petty as a child, but as he would grown (and particularly through highschool) he would push rather hard to be the alpha dog, as it were. While he could aim for heights such as Alpha of the Yolilitzli,

I'm writing a book.
The short way of describing it is an accident and his friends escape from their planet and go on an asinine adventure to find out more about themselves and discover new information, as it's in their nature. All the while they forget that they're all sorta inept so they kinda get themselves into a whole bunch of shitty problems and ultimately end up doing favors for an omnipotent deity.
The long way of describing it is (and by the way there are spoilers so on the offchance that you're interested in reading the final product like fuckin three years from now, don't read this): Our main character (Who's yet to be named), his friends Felicity and Sidfrey, are all 'defects' in an otherwise perfect system. The entire planet where the story starts is maintained and facilitated by a large array of self-aware A.I. components, each with their own slightly different dispositions and 'personalities'. The
Earth - Chapter 4: Colours of the WindAnalysing blood samples of the command personnel took longer than one would expect. The problem wasn’t so much that the procedure was complicated. What made things difficult was the fact that it wasn’t something that was routinely done. Therefore, there was no standard procedure. At first, Leonard had looked for infections, anaemia, and mutations. Then he had found unusual antibodies in one sample and had gone back to those he had looked at before to see if they were there as well. The result, of course, was negative. And this had happened more than once. It was a way to spend a month, though.Earth - Chapter 4: Colours of the Wind20 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
T’Kray’s task was little better. Responsibility had an effect on everyone, and it wasn’t always to bring out the best in people. In other words, almost every higher ranking officer had something to contend with. None of them had shown murderous tendencies, but T’Kray was aware that this didn’t necessarily have to mean anything.

Richard “Dick” Anderson
Anderson was born on a world that, while not necessarily tribal, was home to very few of the huge hive cities that are so common on most Imperial worlds. Anderson grew up on a farm where he worked the land and occasionally fended off raiders and predatory animals. The young farmer often dreamt of doing something important, but he was needed to help his parents on the homestead.
When he was twenty-five, Anderson’s home planet found itself in the path of a WAAAAUGH, his homestead was destroyed and his parents killed. With nothing to stay for, Anderson joined the Imperial Guard unit that had been chasing the Orks, the 354th Radiants. Three months after he joined, the 354th succeeded in destroying the marauding band of Orks, at a hefty toll. Anderson saw many of his friends die during that campaign.
During a scouting mission, Anderson was stranded on a desolate Death World. The Inquisitor Canus Tartero of the

A TARDIS appeared in the town of London, and a time lord evantically stepped out of it.
His name, He will only be refered to as The Wishmaker.
He was one of few time lords who had escaped the last great time war, as he had ventured on his TARDIS to several years in the future. He then traveled to the year 2014.
Sam had been wandering around London quite some time, when he saw a blue Police box from the 1960s appear. That was the TARDIS, And little did Sam know that there was a time Lord inside of it.
He then saw what seemed like a ship above London. "Quite unusual for a starship to be idle above London," He thought.
However, it wasn't the USS Enterprise from The Star Trek Franchise. Sam had been following Star Trek Since October.
All of a sudden, a cyborg appeared. This cyborg had bumps on its bottom and an eye that could target anything within range.
"SCANNING AREA FOR WISHMAKER" the cyborg blurted., "ALL OTHER LIFE FORMS ARE INFERIOR TO US."

In the center, poring over an ancient manuscript bound with tanned leather on a worktable, with only a dirty yellow lamp for illumination, sat a hunched figure in a white floor length medical coat. He was murmuring to himself. "It's got to be in here. It just has to. Fifteen years I've dedicated myself to finding the ritual.

Glancing over at the ramshackle doll made entirely out of woven reeds with two empty hollows for eye sockets, the scientist reaches out and scoops it up gently in the palm of his hand.

Leaning closer, he adjusts his large, square-rimmed glasses.

As the two entered the massive fortress, Noah was surprised to see Josh clipping a loaded Ultron 9000 Blaster to his arm. The model was specifically meant to go on the arm, and fire whenever the one with the blaster on wanted it to, through the blaster tapping into the nerves themselves.
"You do know that this place is abandon, don't you?" Noah looked at Josh, irritated.
"Yes, but by odds if this kid is as smart as he sounds, then there's a trap somewhere. And, somebody else could be in this building."
It was correct. They were being watched by a figure, however currently invisible to the naked eye. Noah however ignored this fact, and continued on, scanning every few moments for something invisible. As they continued into the main hall, Josh grew impatient.
"I keep telling you, coming here was a waste of time. He would have removed anything precious." Josh almost grabbed Noah, but his hand was swatted away.

“On a scale of ‘one’ to ‘furious’, how do you think Hanks going to greet you?”
The glowering look of disdain the speaker was treated to nearly made up for the poor weather conditions. Ever since yesterday morning some sort of pressure system, low or high made no difference it seemed, had begun to grind its way west across the icy greyness of the North Atlantic. The winds alone had seen any bare metal over hang adorned with a collection of salt crystal icicles, and had already sent two deck hands to the sickbay with frostbite nibbling at their extremities.

Luckman pulled up a chair for himself and sat down.
“It will be a long voyage, but I don't foresee this coming war ending before we pass the coast of Talos and enter the clear waters of the Jewel Sea.”
Stone frowned, puzzled. “But Captain, Talos is in the east. Dawn and the Jewel Sea are to the south. Wouldn't we reach Dawn before we even see Talos?”

“I hear there is an important feast at our dear King’s abode tonight.” Kara says as Deva slowly walks into the sitting room; there was a pot of stew boiling above the fire place. Deva trudges to the table by the fire place and sits rubbing the sand out her eyes and yawning, “I think we should pay a visit to see what all the fuss is about.” She looks at Deva and put her hands on her hips- Deva’s left hand is supporting her head and her eyes are half closed. Kara sighs; walking over to the fire place with two bowls in her hands, she starts to dish up the stew. Kara sets down a bowl in front of Deva with a spoon in it. She sits down across from Deva and starts to eat her food. Deva stares down into the bowl, ‘Rabbit stew with home grown vegetables, probably the best meal I’ve had in four month.’ She thinks. Picking up the spoon she shoves the stew into her mouth and chews slowly, ‘Me like.<

It was early in the morning and outside the window a pale sun was shining through the trees, lighting up the lingering mists, painting rays like highways in the air, motorways leading off this place and into eternity. Amanda sat in her parent's kitchen, stirring absentmindedly with a spoon in her a half-filled cup of tea. She sighed heavily once more and leaned back, closing her eyes, trying to push the thoughts of what had just happened out of her mind.
"Hi, daughter, mind if I sit across from you?" came a male voice interrupting her lack of concentration. Amanda shrugged, still not shifting her gaze.
"Suit yourself," she responded, not caring what her father thought of her not facing him, and she noted that he put down a similar teacup as hers by the seat opposite of hers before he pulled out his chair and sat down.
