Children of The Pipes Ch. 17By the time they finally reached Greg, the four travellers were ravenously hungry. They had been living off tight rations, for fear of running out of supplies before they reached the city. Finding Greg had been a chore, the Tent system was notoriously unreliable in the North East, but it had exceeded even that reputation in the groups most recent trek; stubbornly refusing to function properly.Children of The Pipes Ch. 171 day ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Despite the four's eagerness to enter the city and appropriate a meal, the boy stopped them just outside of the city.
"Ok," he said, pointing at the other three, "Any valuables that you have, hide them; thievery is the #1 occupation in the North East."
After all four had ensured that anything of any worth was out of reach of any clever thieve's maneuvers, they started to walk towards the city.
"Oh," the boy said, turning back to his companions, "Don't put any money near your face, a popular place to keep your money around here is in your underwear, and people around here are particularly disgusti

Suzie Trask (female Border Collie, age 25)
Kate Holloway (female Jack Russell, age 17)
Calvin Symington (male Coyote, age 29)
Brenda Olsen (female Husky, age 25)
Suzie’s body was tense. In fact, that was an understatement. Her body was wound tighter than an antique clock, and the finger controlling her rifle’s auto-fire mode was trembling like the hands of said timepiece. The source of this tension was undoubtedly the cadre of heavily-armed canines bearing down on her position; her heart’s hammering intensified when she got a whiff of the plasma compound drifting from the muzzle of the flamethrower carried by “Mollie”.
Calvin seemed to be vibrating as well, but in a different way. Suzie knew why; he’d seen some pretty serious stuff in the service of the Core Republic Marines. He had that whole “battle mode” thing going on. She hoped he had it going full blast right now.
Beneath My Exterior - Chapter Seventeen“Your parents are Nazarees.” Cole’s sorrow filled words hit me like a sack of bricks, and to a yellow, that’s the equivalent of a meteor. I can’t think, can’t breathe, can’t speak, can’t function. Can’t bring myself to believe that what has been said is true. It shouldn’t be. Yet… it makes all the sense in the world. And after everything that’s happened to me in these past four years, my mind is an open door to pain, loneliness and above all, loss. It’d only make sense that my parents were cursed to the same fate.Beneath My Exterior - Chapter Seventeen2 days ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

“I checked your vitals again and it seems that you’re good as new. How do you feel?” the doctor asked.
Skully looked at the doctor, still a bit groggy from being woken up. “Tired, but otherwise fine.”
“Alright, then I suppose you’re free to go.” the Asari said, smiling. “Do you need any help getting-”
“Nah, I got him; thanks.” Skully said, yawning as he got up and started dragging the Geth out of the room. “Oh, and… thanks for taking care of me for three years.”

There was a whoosh and everything suddenly became clear. He was lying in a capsule surrounded by white walls on every side. He looked down and found himself dressed in a white uniform. A woman in a white robe smiled at him and held out her hand, offering to help him out. He took it without thinking, and continued looking about. A man, also dressed in white, was reading on a tablet. "Name: Alex Mallarn. Age: thirteen years, five months, six days, 14 hours, 11 minutes and counting. Height: 4'10 inches. Weight: 95 lbs." He lowered the tablet and walked over to the boy. He knelt in front of him and held the tablet in front of him. He tapped a program and began reading off what it said. "Vitals are all good. Good cognitive function. Eye focus is stable." He picked up one of Alex's hands. "No shaking of the joints. Please hold you hand in a fist." AlexTampering with Forces Unknown 23 days ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

As the Salander Group gets ready for their next mission, Paige and Tajeel have a plan to steal the goods. They have located their target on a planet called Kavedo. Paige and Tajeel waited for the crew to join them in the bridge. Everyone looked like they were prepared for a battle. Tajeel showed them a map of the rebel's base.
"Look, their base is huge. Bigger than we have ever faced. They have strong defenses. Me and Paige couldn't find a weakness, until we saw this." Tajeel pointed at a sewer under the base.
"We will go under them, and they won't even notice us."
Paige walked up next to Tajeel. She opened her mouth to speak.
"We must be cautious though. These rebels are strong. We shall split up into two groups. Tajeel, Jason, Rochelle and Elda will go under the sewers. John, Eddie and I will be the diversion. Ronald will stay on the ship so he could pick us up when the mission is successful."

I remember that fateful day that the Terran Republic turned into a ruthless tyranny. Yes, even the Terran Empire was once peaceful, now we're caught up in a war that was caused by Admiral DeWitt himself.
First off, Haytham DeWitt isn't actually an admiral. According to defectors from Terra, DeWitt was the cause of the uprising that turned the republic into an empire. He promised prosperity to his people, and peace to the galaxy in his opening speech brodcasted throughout space, he never kept his promises. He formed the TMSP, and called its defectors "Space Pirates", which are actually working as mercenaries and mechanics, and provide to other planets tied with our Homeworld.

Despite his depression and anxiety, a big, genuine smile lit Hoshi's face as Dell pronounced Mala and Ookonin bonded and Mala jumped into her husband's arms to kiss him thoroughly and eagerly. The crew cheered, whistled, and clapped as Ookonin managed to look flacloobled and delighted at the same time.
As soon as Mala was done smooging him, she wiggled out of his arms and announced to her gathered friends,
"Ok, boy-o's! It's time for party!"
This led to another round of enthusiastic shouts, followed immediately by a stampede for the food table.
Hoshi wondered how Mala and the crew could so easily put aside the impending assault and the danger it would bring and just act like everything was blast rockets and bippy star-sprinkles. He envied them, but he supposed that maybe he simply hadn't been a pirate long enough to gain the skill of letting g
Beneath My Exterior - Chapter SixteenI let out a faint yelp as I’m dropped helplessly into Andrew Lawson’s robotic mouth. I land smack bang in the middle of a strangely dry, pillow-like tongue that’s clearly not real. The walls around it look almost like drapes of pink flesh coloured towel. And rather than staring down into a gaping throat that drips with hot saliva, all I see is a jumble of random wires, seemingly connected to the robot’s tongue. Intrigued, I forget the fact that I’ve just been dropped into a yellow’s mouth and crawl over to the end of the spongy tongue, the roof of the mouth far too low for me to stand upright in.Beneath My Exterior - Chapter Sixteen2 days ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Squinting, I realise that the walls of the robot’s mouth around me are actually moist with some kind of saliva-like substance that shines as beads of it roll down the pale pink material. Wondering how the hell Andrew Lawson has pulled this off, I raise my hand to touch the slimy surface.

“Roul has been working the forge and these cubes have been coming out with the tools. Extra matter.”
Resyn grabbed his Klctik, a double ended gun-staff and brushed his black hair out of his eyes and fixed it with a pin. “I am sure there is an explanation Princess.” He turned to his friend who bowed his head in silence and they followed Selenei to a storage room full of cubes.
“There’s so many I don’t know what to do.” said Selenei with a sigh.
Resyn looked around at the strange metal diagrams covering each cube’s inner body. It did not feel similar to Vorien metal in any way. The blue tint of the cover and black inner body seemed to pull attention to the cube.
Vasler felt one of the cubes with his hand and tossed it into the wall. A faint vibration
Strive - Chapter 10 Catherine spotted one perfect specimen to prove her right. It was tall, male, and seemed to be missing one arm already. It was also a ways away from the other walkers. "Heh," she bravely approached it and poked him in the back with the machete. It groaned, turned, and shuffled towards her slowly. She smiled "come on, big boy. Cooperate now! I don't need any more trouble right now." Daryl leaned towards Rick "is she... talking to it?" Rick nodded his head and they both looked at each other, confused. K butted in "eh, this is normal for her." Rick and Daryl laughed.Strive - Chapter 104 days ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

He was gone… We looked everywhere for him but we couldn’t find anything. After a year or so, the authorities put his file in the ever growing stack of missing people, never to really be opened up again unless a dead body was found or something horrific like that.Lost and Found: Preface5 days ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

“Quickly, this way!” Erivinia whispered. She motioned for her husband and the other escapees to follow her down through the cavern and out to the ocean. Although weak and weary from their abuse, the group of four knew that they had to escape. No longer could they live while being tortured as they were; neither could they allow their children to be put through so much pain. So they ran; ran as fast as they could until their feet could carry them no further and ended up stopping for the night in a ‘hidden’ cave within the cavern walls where they would stay for the night. They knew that this would be their last night together, but they had to be brave for one another and for their children.
“Aleck,” Erivinia said quietly to her son. “We need you to take you sister and the Rayne girls and go further into the cave. Okay?” Her son put on a brave face, despite his fear, and nodded.

Ich konnte nicht fassen, was gerade passiert war.
Blake Corsen, gerade noch dabei, uns aus dieser Hölle zu befreien, lag nun verblutend und nach Luft ringend am Boden.
Völlig geistesabwesend griff ich den nächst besten, ich glaube, es war Hannah, an der Hand und zog sie mit mir. Ich verschwendete keine Sekunde damit, auch nur einen Blick zurück zu werfen.
Doch dann sah ich doch für einen Moment nach Hinten. Ich sah Marlon, wie er wie eine Furie auf King zusprang und ihn ins Gesicht schlug. Ich hielt an.
,,Marlon, bau keinen Scheiß!“
Röchelnd rannten er und die Anderen los und stießen zu uns auf.
,,Du blöder Hurensohn!“ ein weiterer Schuss viel. Die Kugel verfehlte meinen Kopf knapp und schlug in einen Baum ein.,,Das Fleisch entkommt! Fangt sie wieder ein!“
Ich weiß nicht, wer da geschrien hat. Ich weiß nur, dass wir ihm ohne zu zögern nachgekommen sind.

It was a rainy morning. A tuesday-- no, a wednesday morning. I was stuck in the rain, and tripped over a small object. I picked myself up from the soaked concrete and picked up the offending item. My attitude soon changed. A box painted black with golden accents graced my hands as it was cradled. I tried to open it, no such luck. I looked around, no one for absolute miles. I decided to keep it.
I went home. I kept it for weeks. Nothing ever happened. So I decided to take a walk in a cloudy day, the box in hand.
I tried to open it again while I was about, and yet still no such luck.
Instead, I met a fellow anthropomorphic, only sh
