Solitude: ch 1Roaring from the friction upon hitting the mostly Helium atmosphere, the meteor burned red, then orange, then white in mere seconds. It fell with the intent of leaving its mark on the moons surface and struck it with such incredible force it could have annihilated a populated city and lay waste to the surrounding area.Solitude: ch 16 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
Fortunately for everyone, this moon was barren as could be. The Helium atmosphere and lack of natural resources short of the silicon in the soil which gave it it's yellow coloring from space didn't really make it a prime location for terraforming. Another feature of the moon was an irregularity in its magnetic field, which drew a vast majority of the asteroids and meteors that came near straight to it.
In an underground compound on the planet, some 200 miles from the impact site, a red light blinked in harmony with a chirping alarm. The base was originally a meteorite examination facility with the purpose of gathering samples and learning what they could from them. Built

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.
"Zack." He stops, almost overwhelmed, then forces himself to go on. "I would do anything for him. I would die for him. But I couldn't be there." His eyes are rimmed with tears.
She lays her hand over his.

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.

It pushes me to the edge of insanity.
Tipping on the balance, I manage to push back.
But I never win, I never manage to land more than two blows before it strikes again.
With chains, this inner Demon of mine, binds my heart and mind.
Separated, they fight me.
How do I win?

"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."

Thoughts of everything occurs.
Everything swirls in my head.
I'm happy one moment, and sad the next.
The decisions I make are never right.
The choices I take confuse me inside.
Everything bites me in the ass once again.
And I'm left alone with more of this pain.
Every moment, I feel the need to break down.
You won't find a smile, only a frown.
I can't smile when I feel like this.
My life, is full of tortured secrets.
I need to let go, of all the pain that's buried.
Everything that remains deep inside of me.
I seem to be holding onto them though.
I can't seem to just let these things go.
I guess I'm addicted to hurting me,
Whether it's physically, or emotionally.
I always hurt myself with the paths I take.
It's worse when others are dragged into this mistake.
I'm lost within, this I admit.
Choices I make, I seem to regret.
I always end up getting hurt.
Thoughts will ponder in my head forever.

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.

Evil climbs over their fallen to reach at me
I will not fall
I will not falter
For all that is pure
For all that I stand for

Let it flow through my arms like the blood in my veins
I stand-alone against overwhelming odds,
With everything to lose
No matter how many come,
No matter how many fall,
This evil will always exist
Its in all of us nesting in our core
No matter how pure the soul
No matter how pure the heart
Evil will always exist
I will make my stand regardless,
Because I refuse to believe that darkness can block out the light,
I refuse to believe all is corrupt,
I refuse to believe that anger, and hate is the answer
So here I stand against overwhelming odds with everything to lose

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

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

I smelled like a glass of water
And when I tell you
Water doesn't smell
The way you smiled at everyone
And told me
You crave water like you craved my skin
I told you once I preferred floors to walls
And you said that was because
I was woefully underappreciated
And I said that was because
I was spoiled
But you were never mine
Like the glass never owns the water
For an instant
The glass contains all of the waters being
And keeps secrets from spilling on the bed
I was never yours
And the way walls and floors meet
But never make love
Content to hold hands and lock joints
Except in catastrophes
When they tumble together
And strangers are left picking up the pieces

No matter how hard he tried to convince himself, Steve could not quiet the black panic that smothered his reasoning.
While Tony could be considered a formidable ally or a deadly foe in his Iron Man guise, without it, physically, he was in no way superior to anyone in his size range. Add to that the unpredictability of the arc reactor that glowed ominously in the center of Tony's chest... Steve dread
