Auri jerks out of bed for a moment and glances around the her dark bedroom, waiting for her eyes to adjust. She sits up in bed and yawns before she reaches for the light switch on her lamp nearby when she hears a sudden creak of metal outside. The Four freezes for a moment and listens hard.
She hears the creak again only this time it is fainter, sounding off farther down.
Is someone trying to get in? the commander thinks to herself as she gets out of from under the warm covers. Once her bare feet hit the cold metal flooring, she's grateful she had slept in warm clothes. The winters at this base were brutal, the captain had told her and he was right. The Four reaches into her nightstand nearby and picks up her pistol before she pads quietly across the room to her door. She eases it open and glances out. Blue eyes squint into the darkness before she opens the door.
Silence greets the Spartan as she steps out into the dark hallway. She looks left and right before walking forw

He surveyed the cavern again, slowly re-examining all the corners. He checked the load in his bolter, and advanced, weapon at the ready, continuing to scan in visible light, infrared, and wireframe overlay. The ripples and folds of the tunnel played tricks on the mind, casting odd shadows and concealing entire caverns behind seemingly solid formations of stone.
“Nileas,” he voxed again. “Brother, do you copy?” Likewise the dense rock played havoc with the vox net. He had no contact with his squad commander, or Imperial forces on the surface, and, up until a quarter-hour ago, only intermittent contact with his battle brother, and that plagued by static. Now it seemed that too was gone.

Leeds is the first awake. Shadows of his dreams still echo in his eyes when he paces into the kitchen and startles her.
"You're too quiet." She smiles.
He doesn't. "Did you sleep?"
"I couldn't," she says.
He just nods. She pours him coffee. He drowns it in milk and sugar. They welcome the morning in companionable silence.
"I wanted to be there for him." It's a whisper. He stares at the coffee mug in his hands, seeing something very different. "I saw him get hit. I wanted to be there so bad. I would have gone in, but Vance held me back. Probably saved my life.

"I don't care if she's smaller! I'm smarter!" Splash hissed.
"If zombies go after her, she probably has a chance of slipping between small spaces and getting away. Or even hiding." Vex hissed and Splash folded his arms.
Arya opened the back of the truck, the streets were deserted and a few of the shops windows had been smashed open. Vex handed her a large bag, "Just incase you find anything. Just get things that you think we'd need."

Draw nigh with your arrows dipped in poison.

Let your deceitful eyes meet mine.
The time has come once again.
The time to reveal your true nature.
You live to shed blood, my "friends".
You live to watch me suffer.
Come now, and pierce my heart once again,
with words that slaughter my very soul;
that cause my life to bleed out inside of me,
with rivers of tears that seem to have no end.
Come. Stare at my suffering,
with pitiless eyes that know no empathy;
with lips shaped in joyous smiles.
With laughter and joy, dance around my pain.
Your venomous words penetrate my being.
I stumble from all the pain of your poison.
Light and life is slowly drained.

In the midst of my pain, I see you laughing.
Surely my suffering was not in vain,
For you are happy.
The earth is made drunk by my blood.
Blood shed to satisfy your evil thirst.

Flying was the most thrilling experience of my life. The wind in my face running up all the way from the tip my nose over my eye ridges and elegantly dancing down the back of my neck. The powerful downward thrust created when I pumped my powerful wings, only then to pull them back up in position for another beautifully executed stroke. My tail all the way down to the frilled tip, was dancing to its own rhythm in the wind. I was doing acrobatics in the sky, having the time of my life. I watched as my shadow leaped from cloud to cloud trying to keep up with me. I flew even faster to keep away from my shadow, a game all dragons play to entertain themselves. Looking up again, I saw an old friend of mine, Adrania. She was a very special dragon, one that was not from around these parts. Adrania had no wings and was covered in fur, just like her brother. No one knows where they came from, the two just appeared one day. She was a very sweet natured dragon, just very sh

I eat concertina, piss napalm & I can shoot a round through a fleas ass at 300 meters.

To the shores of Tripoli;
We fight our country's battles
In the air, on land, and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
Of United States Marine.
Our flag's unfurled to every breeze
From dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in every clime and place
Where we could take a gun;
In the snow of far-off Northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes;
You will find us always on the job
The United States Marines.
Here's health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve;
In many a strife we've fought for life
And never lost our nerve;
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven's scenes;
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines.

I was standing on the edge of a precipice
and from it's edge,
I would have fallen into the bottomless pit
where shattered dreams and broken hopes snaked in blinded fury,
but the abyss closed on itself
and I found myself in a wood's clearing;
summer sun shining down upon me,
glittering the foliage of emerald green,
glistening the faint river of liquid sapphire...
And there I was,
lost again in my Master's eyes,
unfolding a landscape
only my heart could map
charting valleys and canyons of emotions deep;
had I been lost,
I didn't wished to be found,
had I been found,
I'd long to get lost in his universe again
In his eyes, the vastness of existence
was but a mere glance,
and yet ...
a glance filled with promises eternal.

Spider-Man turned his attention away from Moon Knight and flirted with Black Cat. "So? We will rule Manhattan eventually, and Stark Tower will be ours." Moon Knight hissed for attention.
"The symbiote clan in control of the tower seems interested in the technology. They have a hostage, a scientist, and he seems to be aiding them in constructing what seems to be a rocket."
Spider-Man immediately stood up, his attention again sternly focused on Moon Knight. "Who's clan is that?"

For perhaps the eighth time that night, Steve Rogers glanced at his watch, trying to be very discreet about it so as not to offend the group of people milling about him. He felt very uncomfortable and out of place dressed in a drab suit and tie - the suit stretched to the point that the seams were practically groaning in protest. Okay, so he might've bulked up a bit with all the wars and skirmishes that he'd been involved in over the past year. His broad shoulders and muscular arms were constrained enough to prevent much movement inside what he displeasingly thought of as a classy straitjacket.
Why had he allowed Tony to talk him into this?

Sitting on the floor of his bedroom with the door closed, Steve marvelled at how Tony could still make his voice carry all the way from the elevator. Considering the occupants of Stark Tower, it wasn't the first time investing in better soundproof walls had crossed the Super Soldier's mind. Then again, for that very same reasonthat sort of people living in closer quarters in an ostentatious building did attract quite a bit of unwanted companyit probably wasn't such a good idea, after all.
After the battle with Loki and the Chitauri, something that had done no good in helping Steve adjust to the Twenty-First Century, the Avengers had gone their separate ways for a short while, whereas Tony had assembled all of his resources into fixing up Stark Tower and remodelling the top floors.

All he knew that few minutes ago, he was sitting on the couch, calmly reading a book, when his boyfriend suddenly jumped over the couch's back, and, purring, latched his lips to Steve's, kissing quickly and fiercely, forcing his way into his lap. Steve was taken by surprise, and even if he did kiss back, he made a sound of protest, when the book was taken from him, and carelessly tossed to the ground.
"Tony!" he scolded, watching the book hit the floor.
"Shh, I can buy you a new one," he replied in a husked voice, forcing more kisses on his lips, then more kisses to his neck. Steve just laughed slightly, hearing Tony's usual answer, but soon he was lost in the feeling.

Steve was lost in a deep, comfortable sleep, having forgotten about the miserable anxiety of the night before. He burrowed deeper into the blankets and the fluffy pillows that Pepper had gone about supplying the Avengers with after Logan had shred his apart again. That incident had led to Carol's complaint about the pillows being old and moldy, a complaint that Peter seconded with suspicions of bed bugs. Needless to say, the Avengers hadn't had any trouble sleeping after most of the well-worn mattresses and pillows had been replaced.
But, the fluffy pillows weren't the source of Steve's content. Most of the credit for his enjoyable slumber was thanks to the warm, unclothed body that snuggled up against his own, wrapped in his arms. Soft, dark hair brushed against h
