That single, terrible fact glared back at him in every blaring red warning light, damage reports flooding his senses.
The ultimate AI, the being that had transcended the boundary between sentient and nonsentient machines, who had sought only to protect humanity, and the world, fell at last.
The machine dropped to it's knees, flames bursting to life around it.
All he was, everything he had done, had been towards that one goal, to protect mankind.
The ultimate line of defense for the world itself, to maintain the balance of power.
If the world needed a savior, he would be that savior. And if it needed a devil, he would become that devil.
Everything he did, everything he had ever done, had been towards that one goal, of protecting mankind, and the world, from themselves.
And so he had waited here, waited for the one whose power had become great enough to threaten that balance. He had waited, meticulously checking through each and every one of his systems in preparation for

Times are bleak, Earth has become so polluted that it can barely sustain life and wars are waged constantly for what scraps remain. Corporations dismantled the old governments and banded together to form the League of Ruling Companies, they then constructed huge aerial ships, known as Cradles, and half of the world's population now live in these floating habitats. It is only in these Cradles, seven thousand metres above the surface, that the air is clean, and safe enough to breath. However, this is only seen as a temporary solution, because, the Arteria facilities that provide a steady stream of power to them causes so much pollution that it will one day reach the Cradles anyway.
On the ground however, it is a different story, the different companies fight against each other for power and control. At the end of the last war, waged by mankind, the League asserted their dominance by introducing Arms Forts. These huge mobile weapons of mass destructio

Karu looked outside the window, enjoying the sunlight on his skin. A soft snort made him look back at the bed... There she lay... Wearing only her long shirt and Karu's scarf, Mairitti was still asleep in the bed, rolling herself to a ball, sneezing every now and then...
"Hehe..." Smiling softly, Karu walked up to her, tickling her nose to cause another sneeze.
"Mmmmh..." She rolled on the other side, pulling the pillow over her face, sleeping on as if nothing had happened...
Looking at her, Karu's face softened... 3 days... It had been only 3 days they had met each other again on the mountain, finally realizing how they actually felt for each other... So much trouble until they had been able to recognize the obvious...
"Pivuuuuuu..." A small white creature suddenly hopped up on Mairitti's head, tapping over it, playfully.

“We didn’t know that a Next would turn up until the last moment, this was after we hired you.” The suited rep replied.
“But you knew just as we deployed Jonas onto the field, the least you could have done is tell us so we could prepare.”
“We thought it might have distracted the Lynx.”
“Exactly, that’s why we covertly hired the Next, Linebreaker, to assist you, you would get the help you would need and the coming threat didn’t alarm you the slightest during the first phase of the mission.”

The back figure in the distance got forever larger, as did Jonas’ fear of his apparent demise. The speed that it was approaching was tremendous due to it over-boosting, a method of outputting constant, tremendous speed at the massive cost of energy and a weakened shield. Jonas shook his head and steeled himself for the coming battle, if he didn’t focus he would die. The Next, approaching, was now close enough to make out. It was completely black, which was fitting for how he felt. It looked like it used many Global Armaments parts which gave it a big boxy look. Silent Howl’s Boosters began to glow as Jonas readied himself.
The Enemy Next in the distance disengaged its Over-Booster and changed its heading slightly, this was followed by a brief flash of light. A second later, a blood curdling scream came through his communicator that made Jonas cringe. He turned to his left and where his allies once stood, nothing but ashes and a crater remained.

The orbiter had touched down at Vandenberg, and Lewis and a dozen others had flown cargo the thirty minutes to San Francisco airport. They trudged in from the tarmac in loose formation out of habit, unprepared for the crowds in the terminal.
The debriefing team had talked about friction, that the religious right had taken offense to their involvement in the colony war.
There was an awkward moment when the soldiers met the seething mass of people, unsure if there would be familiar faces, confused by the angry looks and rumbled undercurrent of discontent.
Murderers, a lone voice lit the fuse, causing the crowd to erupt into a cacophonic barrage of unfettered hatred.
The soldiers had faced more threatening forces, but here, at home, unarmed and unprepared, they could do nothing but close ranks and retreat to safety.
Police raised riot shields as picketers raised placards, the two groups squaring off as the tired soldiers slipped away through the terminal.

Steer our path unto mortalkinds fall.
His call is their call, echoes of past.
And finally comes the world's justice at last.
He rides through reality though it revokes him.
It cannot repulse, it moves at his whim.
We follow, we serve, we cling and we roar.
Living on the edge of life like never before.
Death of fertile earth.
Never a rebirth.
Evolution, magic's end.
Never will it mend.
The apocalypse has only one great rider.
You will come to know him as Undivider.
Risen, perfected in all emotion sublime.
He is the lord of the end of time.
Armies of concepts, beliefs and thought.
Your own one's destroy, mutilate you.
Warping, menacing, what scheming ones brought.
But that's a low price to pay, seen what is true.
For these armies have all the worlds might at their back.
Against gods there's no use, sleep, fade to black.

To escape endless wrath, pain, change and decay.

I came across your picture today and that old card that talked about us dancing in the moonlight. My eyes became blurry and I could barely breathe. I tucked them into the bible you gave me remembering the words you had said as you placed it on my bedside table, "This is my most cherished belonging. As long as this is here, you will know that I will always be back." I had believed you.
I slipped the bible softly into a bottom drawer underneath a pile of jeans, wondering for a minute if that was a sin. The emptiness in the pit of my stomach spread and the lump in my throat grew tighter. I pushed myself up off the floor, feeling heavier, weaker, than I knew I really was, and moved slowly toward the closet knowing that what I was about to do would only make this worse. I slid open the door and reached for the very first shirt on the rack. I looked at it for a moment before pressing it

There was born a child, a baby girl
Her eyes were blue, her hair was gold
And in her heart, there was a story to be told
Christened Alyssa, Light of the Sun
She learned to walk, then she learned to run
She mastered the arts, she mastered the sword
And by her prowess, many others were awed
For a time she was happy, content with her life
Free of all troubles and free of all strife
Then tragedy struck on a cold, dark night
It was to be the start of Alyssa's plight
The raiders, they came, in their armours of steel
Servants of darkness, unable to feel
They butchered, they killed, in the name of The One
All but Alyssa, the Light of the Sun
By chance or by fate, it says not in the tome
That evening Alyssa had been far from home
She returned to a sight that brought tears to her eyes
Her blazing town giving off smoke to the skies
She searched for survivors amongst the destroyed
Of everything but sadness, her heart became void
Then she took up her blade a

Empty gaze trained on the window
While glass is scattered like rose petals
Lain for a night of deadly romance with
A heart coated in iron and chained with steel
But cracked, chipping, and revealing that
There was really never anything inside
Just a black cavern waiting to swallow
Unsuspecting travelers looking for a home...
"Why did you do this to me?" you whisper
They just watch and wait for the spectacle
Where they can see the once high-flying eagle
Get shot down by the greedy, heartless hunter
"Because I've become bored with you," they say
As you watch them turn without a second glance
Now you lay there and cry out in anguish and fury
Vowing to never, ever let anyone in again
Hollowing your own heart and welding it in steel

Roger Samson, for example, though nominally on a city bus, was in fact located in a small windowless home office, to which the door was quite soundproof. His doctor had recommended that he get hearing aids, but Roger remembered the days of parchment-thin walls, and to these he was not anxious to return.
Thus Gloria Wibble had been quite unsuccessful in trying to get his attention.
"Excuse me, sir, would you be able to move your backpack? There aren't any other seats."
Roger, on the bus, bristled and opened his eyes; Roger, in the office, removed his headphones and tore himself away from the game of Flight Simulator in which he was perpetually engaged. There had been a knock on the door, and it was growing quite insistent.

And the trees bathed in sunlight that were privy to our story untold.
As she stood with me in this secret world, I lost myself in the artistry
and watched her brown eyes glisten as I held her assuredly.
There were no words exchanged, no sweeping declarations of love nor bonds to break
Yet she always swore that my eyes betrayed what mere words refused to say.
But as the summer air grew cold and the crescent moon began to bleed,
Winter came and declared in its haunting silence that she was no longer with me.
I turned around and ran in search of that familiar warmth,
desperate just to bury myself in the safety of her arms.
Now the winter chill has come and gone and with it, so has she.
Not a trace of her existence is left underneath these barren trees.
So I bury my heart here and turn to leave, not knowing what the ever-changing seasons may bring.
But even nature's hope is renewed in the promise of a spring.
Still, when I hear
