Rain of Darkness
Something inside of me...broke
The very core of my soul...snapped
I became surrounded by a numbing cold
I blinked and everything faded to black
When you left me alone-
I felt this eternal betrayal
When you decided to let me go-
The dependance I hid became unstable
The weight on my shoulders collapsed
While the world I once knew- wasted
The bottled up remorse relapsed
I was consumed by hatred
Thou have forsaken
Others will taste my conviction
Hope, itself has been taken
Along with every form of justification
Why am I the one abandoned?
I never took ANYTHING for granted!
Re-fracture and amplify the fragments
AND TELL ME THAT WASN'T YOUR INTENTION?
I'm a fraction of a remnant
And that's an understatement
You knew this would happen
When you took back our salvation
Something deep inside of me...crumbled
The center of my heart...stung
I made even the shadows

Grigori Mandate, Heavy Rain Division, Black Water Company, Special Mission Unit.
The name 'Grigori Mandate' both refers to all of the Imperial Guard Regiments that fall under it, as well as the mandate that enabled their founding, issued by Lord Inquisitor Grigori Faust of the Ordo Hereticus. Though he knew fully well that he could requisition any Imperial asset at any time when he needed it, the Inquisitor tired of disbanding them when he no longer needed them, and more importantly, he tired of the delay between when he issued orders and the men needed were under his command.
Though the legislation in the Mandate itself was worded exactly as complex as the Administratum prescribes, it boils down to a simple concept: Grigori's own birth planet, Nox Loctum Prime, was turned into a 'factory' for the Inquisitor's private army, much like most of Cadia's population exists solely to guard the Cadian Gate. Unlike the Cadian Regiments, the Nox Loctum Regiments are much more mo

Why do I keep hurting the ones I love?
And my heart is beating fast.

A scene so awful, and so disgusting occurred against the concrete wall.
A woman shrunk, defenseless, against the uncontrollable urges of a hungry man.
She thrashed like a wild, and howled into the wind, just begging, just pleading for him to stop.
But he didn't, and he pounded into her like a rabbit in heat. Not stopping, nor caring about the life he was ruining.
Her mascara pooled down her flushed cheeks, and dripped into the growing puddle of blood that grew on the concrete, topped with other bodily fluids.
Afterward, He left, and she remained.
Those blue, bright eyes remained in her mind. Those eyes she wanted like a drug, those eyes she could never had.
That man ruined her life just as much as she ruined his. She told this to the police, the bit about her being raped. She looked the part, wounded and emotional, she played it well. Too well.

Except for me.
I hold the boy close, gently pressing him to my breast. My feet struggle down the steep hillside without the use of my hands. Ordon Village lay below us. My deepest regret is that I cannot raise him, cannot nurture him as my parents would have wanted, remain as a mother, and teach him all that the Hero of Time would have wanted.
Now I am alone, torn from he who would be my son, from he who I would shield from inevitability. I am forced to watch from afar, watch as he grows, watch as he loves, watch as he falls victim to the cycle that has befallen all those before him, all those who would choose unbound by destiny.

The Fire in Her Eyes Ch. 1Fluttershy was fast asleep in her cottage, not a single worry flowing through her mind. She was in a land where everything was perfect. The trees swayed in the gentle cooling wind, animals of all species and sizes pranced around happily. Her lips curved to a slight smile as she looked over the plains, seeing how happy all of the animals were. She walked among the field of animals, wishing that she could have this back at home where everything was real. She knew that this was all a dream.

It was odd for a high school like the Immaculate Conception to offer an honors religious studies class run by a non-religious teacher, but there had been an effort lately for the school to become more PC. Mr. Wilde never told them he wasn't Catholic, but it was obvious to Heather he was not. He approached the subject matter the way a surgeon might approach a patient, professionally but without reverence.
"Ms. Halcyona," he addressed Heather as he did all of his students, by her last name. "What would you say is the main thesis of Wright's book?"
They had been reading The Evolution of God for his class, which has only confirmed Heather's suspicion about their teacher's beliefs. They were assigned to read the end for this class. Heather, who was a shoe-in for valedictorian, had of cours
The Carnival of Carnage A gentle wind wafted through the streets, bringing with it the sweet smell of rain. The warm night was peaceful, save for a distant thunder. The only person outside, though, was an older man dressed in a torn work shirt and ragged jeans. He leaned back against the wall of an apartment building, gazing up at the clouding sky. He took up a dirty liquor bottle and tipped it back to drink, when he saw it. An object was being blown on the wind; it floated about as carelessly as any piece of trash, then landed directly in front of the homeless man. Intrigued and slightly tipsy, the man wandered into the street to see the object. It was a playing card, face-down on the pavement. The man picked it up and turned it over. The corner bore the phrase "Joker", but the image was not traditional. It was of a pink and blue clown face with a large afro and huge necklace. The man pondered it for a moment, then started laughing with apparent joy. He pocketed the card and made his way in the directioThe Carnival of Carnage9 years ago in Horror More Like This

John felt uncomfortable as he tugged at her hem off his uniform, trying to straighten the cloth. There were so many people around, and it made him uneasy. Today had started out as a ceremony, awarding metals to his team for feats that felt like they'd happened ages ago. The new metal hung from his left breast, forgotten. It was just one more in a long career. As he saw it, no amount of awards would help them win the war.

I was an odd sight; a boy in his late teens wearing a dark blue sweater with the words "Rhema Eagles" stitched on the front, a pair of light grey sweatpants, and brown slippers on his feet walking through the middle of a forest at night; not to mention I was carrying a steel baseball bat with me. It may have been an odd sight, but there was nobody there besides me. The full moon shown down bright through the bare pines that grew tall on either side, their needles now carpeting the ground around me. My footsteps barely made a sound as I stepped on them gently. A light breeze played through my hair, brushing it this way and that with its invisible fingers. Closing my eyes, I took in the scent of pine cones and needles, to me a heavenly aroma that could never be copied at long as it existed.
Somewhere close by a twig snapped. I paused and looked around for the source, knowing he was back.

I close my eyes, plug my ears, roll around in my bed, try not to notice the annoying sound. What has happened to silence? Where has it gone? I concentrate on the quiet ticking of the clock, but the sound doesn't fade. I sigh and try to float away in my thoughts, to a happy, silent place. It doesn't shut up. I only wish it would SHUT UP. Nothing else. It's laughing at my despair.
Every now and then, my ears explode with that silent screaming. It's not just that ordinary buzzing sound you get after loud music. No. Something is wrong. Something is definitely wrong.
It sounds familiar. Like I had heard it a long time ago. But it was a long time ago. Hidden away, somewhere in the dark corners of my corrupted mind, the memory sits, dying. Rotting. Waiting. Maybe if I try really hard, I'll remember.
I'm not sure I want to remember. I'm sure I shouldn't. It's probably locked away in my head for

Pandemonium, monster seeds
Where they came from, we don't know
But this is how the legend grows.
Roots extend in fertile soil
For long thereafter we must toil.
Water them with tender care
But do not touch them, do not dare.
No one sees our garden here
A place of life or a place of fear?
These aren't flowers, these aren't weeds
All they do is feed and feed.
The sun beats down on our tired necks
Could it be that we've been hexed?
So strangely does this garden grow
They want food and we must go
To bring them things, warm and alive
So these monster seeds can thrive.
The maddened love of a thousand eyes
Feeding us such sweet, sweet lies
They won't harm us cause' they care
We have helped them. They'll be fair.
But we are live things, sadly true
Could it be they want us too?
We nurtured them for countless hours
But they're not weeds or trees or flowers.
The horror in our minds and hearts!
We are merely human Marts
Here in their new feeding lair
