The fleet blurred with pseudo-motion as it dropped out of hyperspace in Achilleas' orbit, beyond the planet's debris rings and moons. Arrayed around a trio of Venator star destroyers and two victory star destroyers, the smaller ships readied themselves for combat around their larger brethren. Within the flagship Guardsman a meeting was being held by General Luminara and her officers.
“Initial scans indicate defensive batteries and garrisons have been positioned on the three moons. The closest moon to the fleet is this barren moon. Scans indicate minor mining operations in addition to the military assets. This will be our first target. A single legion should be able to secure the moon while the remaining three legions concentrate on the remaining two moons. They have much larger settlements including a handful of city-sized habitats. Both of these moons have breathable atmosphere and close to standard gravity. The ba

Final Part – You Are Not Afraid
Chapter 26 – Escape
Marley found herself sprawled out on a floor. Her eyes squinted against an overwhelming light. She shielded her face with a hand and glanced around. Her house had taken on a broken but cube-like shape. Bits of furniture and decoration found themselves spread across a wall like putty stretched too far. Cautiously, she got to her feet.
She didn’t need to call out for the others because Olivia was on the ground nearby clutching herself. Marley helped her up. The others were scattered in a line like breadcrumbs across the blurred surface of the room. Looking around, Marley could no longer tell if they were inside or outside.
Once together, they ventured to an area which felt like it was outdoors but still had a sense like a massive interior space. Portions of their street looked like a glitched video game with order and structure twisted about. Olivia thought of an amusement park they’d

In the following days I regressed to begging for the red pills and paying dearly for them. They made my body ache a little less, I couldn’t help it. My muscles hurt, but I didn’t know anymore if it was due to the dietary deficiency or the lack of movement. I never got much of either. Don’t know how much time has passed. Never bothered to follow it. Looked like it would eat at me less if I was ready for unending, timeless nightmare.
It wasn’t the only thing I was reduced to begging for. I was given the chance to choose between bad and worse. When I was done with this existence I stopped taking pills. Quiet Menace tasted blood in my mouth after one of the gentler abuses. He then found alternative ways to introduce the medicine to me. Despair had me in its tight embrace. I stared deep into the darkness. There was no way out.
Day and night I spent on the same bunk. At night it was relatively peaceful. I could close the bunk shutter and lock it. For those several hou

My ears are all fuzzy... Did I just lied down? My visions are so blurry!!
"Hey!! Are you alright?"
I got up & shook my head. My body feels heavy. But I can see. My vision & consciousness are in tact, it seems
"Hey!! You shouldn't get up!!" A bespectacled man then help me up.
"What's... the situation?" I mourned.
Before long, I saw my answers. Our reinforcements are already here!! Some on the front-lines & some at the back, tending Shay & Kabumon.
I saw Esyra on the front-lines too. Note... I found him being tended at my left in his rookie form.
I then turned my gaze towards the enemy. And there they are... standing in the waters like living shadows under the moonlight.
Very soon, they retreated further into the water!!
"Gah!!! GET HIM!!! DON'T LET HIM GET AWAY!!!" I pointed towards the fake Takeo- the last one retreating.
The other heeded my yell & soon a horde of Tamers & Digimon charged at the
GargoylesGargoyles (Cryptotheridae) are a family of arboreal flightless bats endemic to tropical, sub-tropical and temperate forests of Antarctica. Their common name comes from their hunting technique, similar to Frogmouths elsewhere in the world. Gargoyles sit atop a tree branch completely stationary, waiting patiently for their prey to come to them. Most Gargoyles are small and feed on insects and other invertebrates, but larger species feed on small birds and bats. Gargoyles are solitary, territorial and aggressive towards each other. Although their territorial displays consist of little more than opening their mouths wide and sticking out their tongues, they convey a significant amount of aggression. Gargoyles will stay on the one perch for many weeks or even months at a time, even sleeping on the perch, moving only if and when the circumstances demand it. Female Gargoyles give birth to only one offspring at a time, which they carry around on their back. Gargoyles are cryptically coloGargoyles3 days ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Look what I can do
The stars glistened over the small farmhouse at the outside of the small town of Bode, Iowa. It was an extraordinarily regular night. The summer breeze danced over the corn stalks, and the animals conversed with one another while eating out of their troughs. A mother cooked in the kitchen, a father watched the sports channel while in his favorite chair, a son played video games in his room, and a daughter, a curious young daughter, sat out on the small balcony outside of her bedroom reading her favorite book. The little family in the little farmhouse was almost like a painting caught in time. The perfect portrait was not as it seems. The mother was really a woman who gives nothing but love and dedication but is ignored and abused by the father. The father is an angry bitter old man whose dream was forced away because he had to take over the fami

Madison, leading Grace by the hand, walked up to Callie and rested a hand on her friend's shoulder. "Callie, I . . . I am so sorry about Kiki. Austin won't leave this unscathed; I promise." Madison said.
"Don't; it wasn't his fault. He did what anyone might have done if they found something abnormal on their body." Callie responded, not turning her head to look at Madison.
"Freaking out isn't the first thing that you do!" Madison said.
"No, but what if it was you and a bug on your leg? You would kill it before it got any closer than it already was."
"It was a simple act of self-defense, Madison. Just be glad Austin didn't kill his bug." Callie said, finally looking up with narrowed eyes.
Madison looked dow

“Pack of six bottles?”
“Pack of 52 diapers?”
“Check…don’t see why we need so many, though.”
Dib placed the box towards the side of the room, grunting as he did so. Zim stood across from him as he ticked the things off on the list Gaz had given them. Dib smiled at him, “You’ll see why when they get here.”
Zim rolled his eyes, scanning over the last few lines of the page he had just ticked off, the upper half already complete. They couldn’t have picked a better time to go shopping, as most of the items went on sale straight after Christmas. They had gotten everything they had needed, plus a few extras, like some more comfortable clothing for Zim and a proper wig for him. The rest was spent on getting their kit ready for birth. There were one or two more items Dib would need to get, but so far they
The Fringe:Chapter1:Part1London seems more like a dream than a reality as I sit in darkness. In fact, it seems like my whole world has become an endless cycle of dreams and realities.

"Bloody headlights," I mutter under my breath, pulling up my feet and resting my chin on my knees.
If only I'd stolen a truck with working headlights, then maybe London would still be real. But now darkness has fallen and my headlights aren't here to light my way through this stretch of desert. Funny, how London used to be one of the rainiest places in England. Now it's surrounded by miles of sand.
Right now I'm pretty much stuck in the middle of that expanse of sand, waiting for the cold to kick in. With dreams comes the freezing air, after all. I don't know how the humans screwed up the Earth so bad, making it unbearably hot in day and below zero at night.
I glance down at my dog, Shadow. She's an immense husky with terrible stamina and ever worse breath. But I'm glad for her. Wi

I can't close my eyes. My neck's like it's about to snap into two. I don't want to die!! Don't want to die by this fake's hands!!!
I can't even move... I was pinned down... My hands are losing strength... DAMN!!!!
"He...lp" I tried to speak but my voice failed me.
Before long, a roar approaches.
The vice-like grip were then released immediately. The fake Takeo retreated. I responded the sudden release by taking in air like I've never before. I even coughed out saliva. Boy, the moments of recovery was horrendous. Taking in massive oxygen, then coughed, then breathe, then coughed, then vomited a little...
"Hey!! Are you okay!?" The voice that roared just now asked me.
I then turned by head. My visions are still hazy but I can still see her- My savior.
"Thank... you.... Shay...." I said, breathing deeply & slowly.
That's right!! The warrior that came just in time for my rescu
