Chemical/Mutant Zombie (highly infectious zombie brought about by a drug or chemical that brought them into their undead state. Upon frequent introductions to living brains, flesh, and fluids, their chemical causes them to further mutate in various ways, increasing strength, speed, and altering form, giving strange mutations, extra body-parts, and/or volatile fluids. Can eventually earn ability to still control dismembered parts and live without head. Vulnerable to poisons and pain to an extent, normally doesn't require oxygen. Needs to feed.
Minor form: basic human under influence, Major form: enormous inhuman flesh beast)
-Evolution(mutates to gain general increased hardiness, strength, ability, and even mental powers...prefers strong or intelligent beings),
-Monstrosity(mutation becomes visible, causing the form to alter inhumanly, gaining large forms, extra limbs, cells living separate from the body, claws, spines, shar
A quick lesson in character designA Quick Lesson in Character DesignA quick lesson in character design3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
What's the most important thing for an artist to have when drawing a character? Well a design obviously, I mean we can't have our characters just running around naked can we? Don't answer that.
Anyway, a character's design is a crucial component to who they are. What they wear, their hairstyle, and even the color of their clothing helps define them. A character's personality as well as their interests should be reflected in the articles of clothing that they wear. This gives people a little sneak peek into a character's personality and can add tremendous amounts of depth to a character.
That's not to say that having a random design is bad, I know there are a few artists who pick a design because it looks interesting or because they want to try new things and there is nothing wrong with that. Sometimes though, this can work against an artist, especially if the design gives off an entirely different message than the artist had intended. Enou

Daniel H@#&- Demented One
A common staple in many B-movies, Zombies are often depicted as taking over the world. Having watched many of those movies I have decided to compile my own Zombie Survival Guide after reading the one at Kuro5hin.org. This guide will be posted in many places I know of so that if anyone comments I will be able to make a better one later. To date I have not read Max Brook's Zombie Survival Guide, though I intend to. As for the debate I've seen on the Fast Zombies vs. Slow Zombies, this guide is written with Slow Zombies in mind, for if they are really dead bodies they would have series body control issues, and under the assumption that the outbreak is a large one that would last several years at least.
Preparation: (what you did for Y2K)
If you are already preparing for a Zombie invasion, lets face it; you don't need this guide, and are probably a little crazy, like me. Preparing for a Zombie i

Jack swung down hard with the axe splitting the piece of wood almost perfectly in two. He liked chopping wood, it helped him forget. Forget things like dropping out of his residency to help care for his elderly parents way up in the mountains.

Now that his parents finally past on Jack was left with a stalled life and a mountain home that was not selling. As he placed another log on the chopping block he saw a snow flake fall on his hand, great he thought another storm! There goes my chances of getting into town today.

1. She brought back plaid.
For that alone she should be thrown in jail. Plaid is fashionable for lumber jacks. I don't take fashion advice from sweaty dirty men who haul wood thankyouverymuch. Bringing something into style that is as ugly as plaid is a criminal offence for which she needs to be punished. Because you just KNOW the redneck white trash girls are just SHITTING themselves over this. It's like they found a kindred spirit or something. I can't wait for the camouflage.

Tactical Debate(Fleet Admiral Paktu and Admiral Riif-Sa)Tactical Debate8 years ago in Science Fiction More Like This
(Topic: Fleet Composition)
If one looks at the combat data available, the answer to the question we are
discussing here today becomes obvious. Both Strike and Defensive fleets must
be composed mainly of Capital Ships, with Fighters serving only as escorts
and deep harassment forces. Only Capital Ships have the firepower and range
to do significant damage to an enemy force.
F. Adm Paktu:
While my colleague has a valid point, I believe his tactical doctrines are based
on ideal situations instead of the actual pressure situations a fleet will find
itself under. We all would like to command fleets of nothing but the best and
biggest, but the reality is that time and resources in combat often do not
allow the creation and maintenance of a large force of Capital Ships. And we
needn't even bother to analyze the true costs of losing a single large vessel
when compared to the attrition a fighter squadron can suffer while still being

Ten thousand years was ample time to reflect on past mistakes and mend broken trust.
Or not, not when the individual still believed themselves justified in their deeds. Ahriman had denounced his exile centuries ago, preferring to call it a pursuit of arcane knowledge and understanding. One which lesser beings could not grasp, their feeble minds never looking beyond the next sunrise. He had travelled the length and breadth of the galaxy, across the five zones of the Segmentums, through the remnants of unnamed xenos civilizations. His eyes had born witness to countless conflicts, beholding feats where the mind could no longer comprehend and words paled. On planets where suns never rose and across realms of glass, the sorcerer uncovered primordial lore better left alone. Each piece was a part of the greater puzzle, the intricate tapestry which created and held the cosmos together, in comprehending the machinations of gods.

How to be an evil overlordBeing an Evil Overlord seems to be a good career choice. It pays well,How to be an evil overlord9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
there are all sorts of perks and you can set your own hours. However every Evil Overlord I've read about in books or seen in movies invariably gets overthrown and destroyed in the end. I've noticed that no matter whether they are barbarian lords, deranged wizards, mad scientists or alien invaders, they always seem to make the same basic mistakes every single time. Therefore, if I ever happen to become an Evil Overlord:
1. My Legions of Terror will have helmets with clear plexiglass visors, not face-concealing ones.
2. My ventilation ducts will be too small to crawl through.
3. My noble half-brother whose throne I usurped will be killed, not kept anonymously imprisoned in a forgotten cell of my dungeon.
4. Shooting is not too good for my enemies.
5. The artifact which is the source of my power will not be kept on the Mountain of Despair beyond the River of Fire guarded by the Dragons of Eternity. It will be in my saf

Chris found out why when he doubled over in pain, his entire body in a sort of spasm, Atlas could hear Chris's cries down the headset. "Chris! You ok!? Chris!" Atlas's 360 started to crackle, sparks of electricity flying out "oh no, not again..." the shock struck Atlas in the chest, his entire body de-materialised in thin air, the surge being sucked back into the console, shooting down cyberspace. Somewhere, a swirling vortex appeared in a room, and out flew Atlas, crashing into a bookshelf, cd's and books toppling on him, clunking him on the helmet. He opened his eyes just in time to see the vortex vanish without a trace, he groaned and got shakily up on his legs, sighing "still an Elite....." someone else groaned to, he span around, and saw another Elite, just like him, kneeling down on the bedroom carpet, staring at his hands, Atlas eyes widened "Chris?!...."Halo 3 and the end....6 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

1st BiPAD Initial Test FicIn late 2010, the Australian Army, desperate for a hard-hitting, highly mobile force, and shocked by the dismal failure of the M1 Abrams MBT to provide the kind of punch they required, commissioned an Australian Aerospace company to design and build what they descirbed as 'an attack helicopter with legs.' This vehicle, unveiled in a top-secret ceremony in 2012, just 21 months after design work began, was the BF-19 Experimental Light Battlefield Support Mechanised Fighting Vehicle. The design was found to be sound in theory, but much to weak to withstand the punishment the ADF intended to subject it to. After extensive redesign and testing, in 2013 the BF-20 Light Battlefield Support Mechanised Fighting Vehicle was unveiled, again in secret. The vehicle was unveiled to the public some 11 months later, in August 2014. With its new fighting vehicle looking ever more viable, the Army needed to recruit and train pilots from within its own ranks.

"My wife's about to give birth!" he practically screamed at the nurse, causing her to flinch and touch her ears subtly. Lately, loud noises had been incredibly piercing. She felt a flutter in her belly and rubbed the round mass, easing her own unborn child. Clearly the baby didn't like the noise either.
Calmly, she handed the man a clipboard and told him to fill in the forms attached, then went back to her pacing. Her back was aching, but she couldn't stand to sit down. Even standing still was unbearable. So she paced behind the counter, idly putting away pieces of paper and files as she saw them.

I woke up the next day fresh and alert. I was surprised that my back didnt hurt after sleeping on a hard rock floor. Haku and Lulu were still asleep for now. I knew that I was gona have to find some food soon for them. So I decided to go hunting for deer. My cave was a storage for many things. I always kept a rifle for hunting. I took the rifle and prayed that if they woke up, they wouldnt leave the cave. I eventually found a deer and killed it with one clean shot. I kinda have too much time on my hands when I come here. So I have become somewhat of a marksman by practicing so many times. Once I dragged the heavy ass deer back to the cave I began to clean it. (Not the prettiest thing to do, but it had to be done). Afterwards I got a fire going. I would slightly cook the meat as how saphira sh

I rolled out of bed and put on my normal outfit. I would stop whatever I was doing for a moment at random times and listen for anything wrong; I would get just the normal sounds back.

As they got closer, I could see the huge wings and long tails. Only one thing looked like that, dragons. My jaw hit the gravel road. Broad daylight in a heavily populated area, these couldnt be with the same dragons that I had seen before. My mind was trying to find an answer to why these dragons would come here. There were a number of answers, but none made much sense. I could do nothing but stand there and stare as they came closer. They landed at the end of the parking road and just started to walk towards me. They were nothing like any dragon I had laid eyes on yet.The College Drag, Part 86 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

I'm your average teen; school, friends just trying to get by. That changed one day, but I'm getting ahead so let's start from the beginning. It started on a typical day; I went through my college classes working on all the projects, dealt with the usual distractions, went home and worked on a few stories, watched TV, browsed the internet etc. While on Yahoo, I noticed a news story about a city in Rhode Island that apparently had a few kids who looked like dragons, though it seemed like a lie, I looked anyway. To my surprise, there were a few pictures of the kids, one of them was blue while the other was red and there were 3 other kids behind them. Scanning through the story, I read that one of the kids, named Andrew had changed at the police station soon after and that the other 2 were suspected of terrorism. "Why would you think they're terrorists" I said aloud to no one in particular. Laughing, I shut off my computer and went to be
