Steve raised his eyebrows as he looked at the petite raven-haired woman standing on his doorsteps. At a massive 6'2" and 250 pounds, all of it muscle, without a single gram of extra-fat, he was used to having strange chicks run after him. His body would have been enough to attract most gals, but his job as a firefighter added a special something women seemed to crave, an aura of danger and heroism.
Not that this girl looked like any of his usual devotees. Truth to tell, even those weren't ringing his doorbell well past ten in the evening, but aside from that minor fact she missed the typical 'bimbo-look' he so despised. Apparently, girls seemed to think that they had to dress like a hooker to land with the facsimile of a Greek god. This girl, though, was clothed fairly

I cant tell you how weird that is” Ava explained. Then Sasha pushed the last box inside, “the only reason were leaving is to get away from the paparazzi, and its kind of my fault we got busted” she confessed. "Aww, Sasha you were just protecting people that what being a princess means putting the innocent first” Eden explained. Then there father king Kronos stood by the door, “Sasha…” he called out, and he went back inside. "Ooh boy” panicked Sasha, “whose fearless now” smiled Royce.

“Siro Amador” A quick search of Battlefleet Medici’s records revealed all they needed and the Serlendor aide announced his findings rather dramatically.
“He was the leader of a Chaos warband that branched out into piracy terrorizing these worlds for several months until Battlefleet Medici caught up to them, this was roughly 150 years ago. They were destroyed down to the last vessel. He was believed dead but his body was never found. Now we know why.”
“It seems he’s more subtle than most servants of the Blood God.” Omero commented with a certain amount of black humor.
“Not anymore.” Major Van Eyck added a comment of his own. “Of course that begs the question of what we do now.”
“Chaos lies. How do we know that this man didn’t die 150 years ago? What would be keeping him alive?” Ballaseros and Van Eyck were with their men holding this conference via encrypted vox channel.

Jurus campaign Day 62
The Cultists were either fantastic shots to come just short of missing him or terrible ones and Petros Alexander was not keen to find out. The snap-crack of a longlas just over his head forced him to drop behind cover and the shot burned into the graffiti covered wall behind him. The next shot took the head off an angel statue and he hunkered down to reflect on his situation. He was on point clearing the way for the rest of his squad. They were Kasrkins, the best of the Imperial Guard and so the task had fallen to them. Jurus Alpha wasn’t exactly large by the standards of Imperial cities nor was it tiny.
The city had been home to 5 million before the I.I.S had risen up, killed the Planetary Governor, his family and most of his staff, ending a centuries long political dynasty.

Apesar de diferentes em fisiologia interna, os humanoides de Yíkonyi eram semelhantes aos humanos terráqueos. As diferenças externas eram os olhos, semelhantes aos dos pequenos felinos, de íris grande e pupila vertical, e os dentes, levemente mais pontudos que os humanos. Existiam originalmente cinco etnias ou raças em Yíkonyi, distingüíveis especialmente pela cor dos olhos.
Os nívak eram semelhantes aos humanos do leste asiático (especialmente Japão) e aos esquimós; seus olhos eram amarelos.
Os kazadóras eram idênticos aos nívak, mas seus olhos eram azuis.
Nos tármano predominava a pigmentação vermelha, na pele, cabelo e olhos.
Os kodera eram semelhantes aos povos do Pacífico (especialmente os maori), mas sua pele era castanha escura, e seus olhos escuros.
Os vánaka se originaram a partir dos tármano
Sol.Terra - Episode 2.7: The Reichurt ReserveCal hesitated before flying through the gate. He had not returned to Eadilon.Larpa since his and Pia’s escape from Alezia. He glanced back at Dajan, sitting and talking with Pia, and almost considered turning back. It was on the Larpan’s word that they were travelling to his home planet. The promise of new information regarding the Originals was all that kept Cal pointing the ship at the great floating ring. He almost considered forsaking whatever details the planet could tell him, in favour of a method that involved fewer Larpans. But, he could not. If there was something worth finding, he had to find it. That was the whole point of taking the job with the IU in the first place, so he could have access to the planets and the information they held. If the Alezians were onto something, if there was even the slightest chance their theories may have been right, he had to know. He refused to believe they had done it all for nothing.Sol.Terra - Episode 2.7: The Reichurt Reserve30 minutes ago in Short Stories More Like This

F4ct3r was resting while M10ns0rn only took a short nap before going out. He was going to attack one of the last two bases. While he was gone F4ct3r woke when the guard delivered the papers from the base he had been wounded in. Since all he could really do while he recuperated was read files and papers. One file then caught his eye that was labeled “Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing”. Opening the file he read through the papers. As he read he then blinked, reading the paper again like what was written on it was just his imagination. When it said exactly what he thought he blinked again. If he weren’t already lying down he would have to sit down, reading it a third time. “Progress report: have not heard from him for a year now. It is to be assumed it is because he had been unable to sneak away for meetings. It is also assumed he still has the dagger given to him. His orders remain the same, gain F4ct3r’s trust by any means necessary, and then kill him.”

He had finally awoken from the nightmare, but only to continue to live in hiding with what was left of humanity from the unstoppable threat that knew their every movement.
He was covered in dirt and sweat as scanned his enviorment for any signs of the enemy's presence, but it was hard to tell when the entire world was a war-torn graveyard ever since the Invasion hit the United States seventeen-years-ago. The world's greatest cities fell in hours, while millions of humans died in seconds to only be converted or killed by the enemy. Yet, humanity was now in the threat of total extinction as they hid in places where they beileved the monsters couldn't get them, but it wouldn't be long until they would be found and killed though.
The enemy never showed mercy to their foes, they fear no one or anything. Their origins are unknown but only in rumors of biological experimentation in Russian during the years before the Invasion, but they were unconfirmed for the truth d

A very nervous short raccoon mobian in an Eggman officer uniform steps out and walks up to the commander of the base. He is carrying a large brief case with a wire going from it up his arm around his back and up to an electronic probe strapped to his head. The electronic probe doesn’t look comfortable in the least bit.

She endured it as long as she could- Maybe ten seconds- and wearily got up. She glared at the suffering creature stretched out on a mattress. “You keep screaming like that and you’ll bring the Krell’skanta down on our heads,” she muttered under her breath. But she stumbled over to her bag and pulled out a small container with a small amount of whitish powder barely covering the bottom.
There would hardly be enough to get him to stop screaming for five hours, the Kel Dor noted, grimacing. If only she had some bacta… but the terrible circumstances that had gotten her and Louudo driven to the

You are in a café. Sitting. You are sitting in a café. (What else, exactly, does one do in a café?) You are sitting, in this café, eating. Another common thing to do in a café, I am told. I try to avoid the café scene, myself---I'm a bit more partial to Chinese restaurants with hidden smuggling operations in the back—but you seem to like cafés, and, as such, you are sitting in this café, which was, of course, named simply Café, as if the owners thought they were being clever by throwing all creativity out of the window.
And here, you still sit, in this café, but having finished your meal, you decide to look out of a window. Once again, I am told this is a common thing to do in cafés—Chinese restaurants with smuggling operations r

A fisiologia interna era diferente da nossa: vasos sangüíneos eram constituídos de células menores que as humanas, permitindo muito mais ramificações e mais finas do que as existentes no nosso sistema circulatório; o sangue era de um tom entre o rosado e o alaranjado.

On the day of the baby’s birth she was born small and silent but that didn't stop her parents from loving her. As king Kronos held his daughter in his hand, he looked into her jade eyes and held her tiny hands. "I like the name Sasha it makes her seem fearless, yet graceful” he explained. "Thats a sweet name I expected you to be a little disappointed since your first born was a girl. Usually its a boy” Eden pointed out. "No, I don't care about that, she's perfect” he grinned. He sat next to his wife Eden and they admired the beautiful baby.
