“What do you mean ‘he knew there was going to be an abduction’?” Agent Jones demanded.
“I don’t know. All he told me today was that someone was targeting a boy named Benjamin Reed. The kid you guys were keeping an eye on.” Charlotte explained.
“What’s his source?” Agent Smith demanded next. “We didn’t hear anything.”
“That’s because the chatter hasn’t occurred, and probably never will now.” Charlotte sighed. “Listen. Time travel is pandora’s box. Exactly like Pandora’s Box, containing all the horrors in the universe, and hope. And if you’re not careful, you could run into things are the Archin to Drackkenaor Gladiators to a demonic warlord’s horde of brain dead brutes., plauges from humanity’s far future to giant incests trying to escape the Parmian-Triassic extinction event.

“What?” Kim yelped as her master grabbed the futuristic gun out of her hand. “What did I do?”
Duncan sighed. “You don’t put the gun on that setting or it’ll implode in on itself with a seventy percent chance of taking you with it.”
Kim looked up. “And that would be…?”
Kim sighed and sat down with a huff. “Sorry, Duncan, I’m just… Tired.”
Duncan smiled knowingly and sat beside her. “Well, the way I see it, you’ve got two options.” He said. “Either get to sleep, or get some coffee.”
Kim rolled her eyes. “I’ll choose sleep, thank you.” She stood up and took off her lab coat, hanging it on one of the hooks beside the door. She turned and s
Webway Adventures pt 3They called him Weasel, because that’s basically what he was. Sneaky and cunning, he weaseled his way into almost any situation he desired. He weaseled his way into the IMC as a Titan pilot. He weaseled his way into the Alliance Military, taking part in N7 operations. He weaseled his way into the Stormcloaks and went adventuring. He weaseled his way into the Tower to save the Traveler. These organizations, among others, had all fallen prey to the shrewd tactics of the little Shifter.Webway Adventures pt 35 days ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
But there was one place he hadn’t weaseled his way into: the circle of friends that included Dralicoma, Mari and Alexander. No, Weasel had earned that spot.
He noticed that only he and Drali were in the Webway, and he almost felt guilty for entering the Titanfall universe, where Drali didn’t have access to. But after a few minutes of attrition he forgot his worries, until Drali suddenly contacted him.
“Minecraft. Now,” was all that was mentioned.

“I said I’m not going back to that ship yet Dalzell, and that’s final.” I said as I moved a piece of wreckage so that I could recover my rifle from where it had landed. I picked it up, marveled that there wasn’t a single scratch on it. As I slung it onto my back I looked around.
But you still haven’t told me why you won’t go back. You just want to keep me away from robin don’t you! Dalzell said with an accusing tone.

KRU: RO - Chapter ?? - page ??Kyra didn't think her life could get any better as she continued to rise above all of her fellow soldiers, but the more time she spent being so close to Luka she started to fall for him; hard. Whenever he gave her that look of burning lust; a look he never seemed to give any other female, whenever he held her close to him as he corrected her stance before taking a more effective strike or a take down maneuver as she sparred with an opponent, she couldn't fight her vow to let a relationship get in the way of her career any longer.KRU: RO - Chapter ?? - page ??12 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
He was everything she wanted in a man and she wasn't about to pass on his subtle advances and spine tingling compliments that he seemed to only save for her. Being with a man with such power and respect would do more for her career than she could ever imagine and his personality was just what she looked for. He was perfect.
With all this in mind, however, she wouldn't dare make a move on her Superior, she would wait patiently, but she didn't

Un demi-corps, teinté et auréolé d’une lumière bleue fluo, transperça les ténèbres du ciel, entamant une chute vers une immense forêt, aux arbres plus grand et dense que la normale. Un second bras, et jambe, poussèrent, juste avant de s’écraser dans un grand choc de lumière. A la zone d’impact, depuis le dôme lumineux, un corps jaillit, roulant plusieurs fois sur lui, sur quelques mètres, avant de s’arrêter en raclant le sol.
Un jeune homme, blond, portant un T-shirt noir orné de flammes et au col blanc. Doucement, il ouvrit ses yeux, couleur émeraude, pour regarder autour de lui. Malgré qu’il ne reconnaisse rien, il ne s’en étonna pas encore à cause du choc. Se relevant, une vive douleur lui envahit la jambe droite. Son jean bleu était déchiré

As she stood out in the field, Kyra had to breathe in through her nose and out her mouth a few times to slow her heart rate and steady her shaking hands before she could do much of anything else.KRU: RO - Chapter ?? - page ??1 day ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
A big smile crept onto her face and she laughed in victory as she raised both her fists in the air. "YES!! SUCK IT, BITCHES!!" She yelled to the world, to everyone who picked on her, doubted her, tried to beat her down and keep her there. Kyra had just made them all eat their words and the glory was as sweet as she imagined it would be.
She took off running across the field to the smaller building that held the living quarters, wanting to bust out into a victory dance all the way there.
Dante was in his quarters, having just gotten out of his shower, and was now standing at the mirror in just sweatpants as he stared at his scar with a frown. It stil

Kyra became even more respected over time by her fellow soldiers as they recognized her skills as a stone cold killer with deadly accuracy behind the scope of a sniper rifle. She could lead men into hell and come out laughing. Her life was going smoothly when she wasn't distracted with thoughts of Dante. They were certainly close friends now, there was no denying it but they both kept up their defenses toward one another despite the remaining sexual tension between them but it seem to be lessening more and more as Dante was still pining over Olivia and Kyra focused on her career just as she had before she bumped into Dante and turned her life upside down with mental turmoil.

The Sergeant Major showed up at exactly three o'clock and gave him a brief rundown of Dante's training before they got started. Twenty hours a day, for seven days. Luka was determined to make or break Dante with the hardest regime he could create and Dante was already having self doubts.
Once Luka finished speaking, he immediately put Dante through the Gauntlet again, using the darkness to force Dante to focus more with his hearing and energy to guide him. Again and again, changing up Dante's route and targets so it couldn't be memorized, pushing Dante to his limit and barking orders along the way. Luka ran alongside Dante and criticized his every move. After the twentieth time, Dante stopped to vomit on the side of the course, shaking and weak from the physical exertion. But Luka threw more insults a

Seto cracked a smile. "Well you know..." He said slowly. "I wouldn't quite clarify myself as an animal expert."
"So, watcha writin' there?" Hannah asked as she leaned back in her chair with a cup of tea.
"Just a journal." Seto answered as he put his book away. "Rythian told me to keep it."
"Oh, so you're staying with Rythiam?" Hannah grinned. "What's it like?"
"Well, I'm... Never bored." Seto replied.
Hannah laughed. "I know what you mean." She took a sip of her tea, then set it down on the table. "Seto, how exactly did you and Lewis meet?"

KRU: RO - Chapter ?? - page ??For the next month as Dante stayed with Kyra in her apartment, there was still a lingering, awkward tension between the two, at least that's what they wanted to think, but it had obviously turned into an awkward sexual tension and they knew it.KRU: RO - Chapter ?? - page ??3 days ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Dante knew from the get go that kissing Kyra the way he did was a very bad idea. The fact that she kissed him back had him conflicted considering he now had severe trust issues after what happened with Olivia. He knew Kyra enough to know that she always kept her word, and despite him looking different now, she still looked at him the same. He felt a sense of security around her and it confused him but he had let it go. His heart still ached from Olivia's betrayal and he didn't want anything to do with any female at the moment. Not until he could mend his broken heart and cope with his shattered life.
There were a lot of ups and downs for Dante and Kyra tried to be as patient and understanding as Burillianly possible

"No offense, Rythian." Duncan crossed his arms. "But Zoey doesn't know quite as much about disabling a bomb as I do."

"I'll have a better chance - you know that Rythian." Duncan said. "There is a whole city full of people who are depending on this stunt. I have the best chance of pulling it off."
Rythian shook his head, looking away. "I won't let you."

The Change of Sides - Ch. 5 - Ender-Born Seto walked along the gravel path as the sun rose over the hills in the distance. The morning was cool and crisp, smelling like apples and smoke in the mid-autumn air. All was silent around the Sorcerer, except for the breeze and the birds in the trees of the forest ahead. As he walked, he kept his head lowered, staring at one of his hands as the other remained at his side. He flipped it over and back again as though it were foreign to him – he’d found himself doing that a lot lately. All the while, his two companions bickered from a few feet behind him.The Change of Sides - Ch. 5 - Ender-Born3 days ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
“I still think you should have stayed behind.” Lewis said.
“It’ll be fine, Lewis.” Kim replied. “Duncan told me that he and Rythian had a pact of non-aggression.”

They were all outside of the laboratory in which Yuna had been for the past year. She never wished to return. However, that wasn't the reason she was here. She was carrying Nao's body, tears of anguish and regret falling down her face as she walked into through the door she had not long come out of. Chizuko, Kotori and Sora were watching from few metres away.
After placing Nao on the floor of the same room in which she was born in, Yuna took a match from her pocket. She silently said how sorry she was and then threw the match onto the floor. Walking out the building, Yuna thought back to when it all began. Falco's orders, the long months of creation and then the present.
The building went up in flames rapidly. A

He pulled up his boots and crept silently out of his room. He closed the door as quietly as he could so as not to wake anyone and started for the stairs. He went slowly and silently down them, careful not to not to make any sound. He held his breath as he did, praying that the wood beneath his feet wouldn’t creak.
When he finally made it to the bottom, he took a deep breath and started to make his way through the shadows of the castle. He carefully opened the door and slid through, silently closing it behind him.
He sighed and looked up at the great oaken door. He reflected a final time on how grateful he was for the Cast’s help, but deep inside, he knew it wasn’t meant to be. He started to woods from where he came. But before he coul

“He’s right Ty, let him go.”
“But it’s getting dark out. Seto, wait till morning!”

The man sat bolt upright, gasping for breath. He groaned and placed a hand on his chest as a pain shot through it. How’d he gotten it again? Of right, he’d been shot…

Being so, the man trudging through the wood wasn’t at all wet. He heard the storm rage all around him, but the rain didn’t hit him through the treetops.
When he’d seen the storm approach earlier, he’d thought he’d have to use his magic to stay dry, but as it turned out, the trees in the forest provided more than enough coverage. He walked through the wood with his head, his steps, and his heart heavy.
Only three days prior, his friends – or at least he thought the were his friends – had abandoned him. Having no one turn to, he left them behind and went out on his own. He&

In our last episode we looked in detail at how the Commonwealth of Saumur generates its power and compared the system against both advanced nuclear and fusion power systems. But the picture would incomplete without a look into the Governmental agency behind the adoption of the Hyperbolic system. So today we at Snapshot take a look at the Bureau of Public works.
The Bureau was established early on in the colonization of Saumur as a governmental check and balance for the errors that occurred back on earth. Instead of allowing private firms to design and develop and maintain basic public unities at a cost to the population it was decided that all critical infrastructure would be owned and maintained only by the government. In doing so the problems around ownership of waterways, access to clean drinking water, and power distribution were handled at a minimum of cost in taxes to the citizens of Saumur. The largest concern

She came rushing down the stairs and nearly jumped into Dante's arms, smothering him with kisses.
"Oh Dante! I'm so happy you're okay, I was terrified when I heard the news that you had been injured." She cried as Dante buried his face in her hair and held her close.
"Are you okay?" She breathed, running her hand gently down the bandaged side of his face.
"I'm alive and back home with you." He smiled, giving her more kisses, feeling his worries melt away. "That's all that matters."
"Why do you still have this on? I thought you were fine?" She said with concern.
"Just a precaution. It can come off tonight." He mumbled, nuzzling his left cheek into her neck. "I love you, so much." He said, intoxicated by her scent.
