Lauri and Mona sat in the waiting room of the local Fertility Institute ready to make the biggest decision of their lives, and all either could do was hold onto the other's hands in the cold and crowded waiting room, watching countless other perspective parents come and go. Some looked elated, others simply looked just as anxious as they did.
"Lauri and Mona Flores," an older nurse called out, "Dr. Chella will see you now."
Mona was the first to rise, still clutching her wife's hand as if to pull her up with her. The two had talked about this for more than three years; first with idle, "have you ever thought about"s, then moving into more serious, "do you think we're ready"s, and finally the dry, but easily most crucial, "can we afford it?"s.
The hall was decorated with OLED displays each cycling though images of how the process is done, while other simply showed happy clients with their new children.

My name is El. I am the god of the Canaanites, or at least I was. Many of you have forgotten about me because my son betrayed me. Of course all of you know my son as he is worshiped my many. You may know him as I am, I am Who I am, Yahweh, Jehovah, The Lord, The God of Israel, or simply God. So how did I end up here. I had wife named Asherah who was the most beautiful being in existence and had a total of 70 children. We lived peacefully but I felt at the time that we should create other beings since we thought that since we had the power, why not use it to make something good. Of course you all know the story and how it went bad. I can't say that I'm completely blameless since I didn't stop these things from happening. Unlike my son, I don't claim to be all powerful or all knowing. Well this is my story...
DW 2012: Day 5-WWIIWith tears in her eyes, Deryn sank into the ashes that layered the ground. Six long years, and in that time, millions had died. Misery had crept into every home, every heart, every human. It had slowly strangled the life and light out of all that most had held dear, but Deryn had been one of the inconceivably lucky. Her husband, daughter, and son had all survived. Sometimes she wondered if this had been more of a curse than a blessing, leaving them to remember everything they had seen and done, to see the faces of the dead in their sleep for years to come? With a shudder, she pressed her hand into a pile of ash by a crossbeam.DW 2012: Day 5-WWII3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

"Quick give the baby to me!" Boulder instructed Violet Ray as she quickly carefully handed in the baby into Boulder's arms. "You and Hammer just try to hold them off while I'll stash him somewhere!"
"Got it!" Violet replied as she stopped the attacks by creating tentacle-like rope of her energy source where her arms are and dismantled them.
Meanwhile, Boulder made a dash for it carrying the baby while turning herself into her metal form to pick up a faster pace. Ferio notices her running down to another area of the factory and motions Tito to come with him as they both flew off to follow her track.

"Hey, loser. You can get off my shoulder now." I blinked, glancing upwards to see Shigeru smirking. Suddenly realising that I had fallen asleep while leaning on his shoulder, I sat up fairly quickly, my face a bright red. "So, where are we?" I asked, avoiding his smirk. Shigeru ran his hands though his hair.
"We've just made it to Undella Town or something. Aurea and her dad are going to drive us to their hometown." I nodded, trying to remember our ride on the ferry that we had taken from Vermilion. Seeing as I couldn't remember anything beyond boarding the ferry, I could only imagine that I had been resting on Shigeru's shoulder the whole time. The thing that had me stumped the most was the fact that he hadn't pushed me off earlier. By now, Shigeru was standing, stretching as we headed down towards the car port.
Aurea greeted us there, her green eyes seeming to smile as we approached. "Ah, so you two are here. Well, let's be getting in the car, then," she said, waving to the ye

Walking through the corridors of the Leviathan she felt...Odd. The doctor had been in a fantastic mood here lately, Count Volger has hardly been threatening to revile her secret anymore, and Alek had been acting weird. Like whenever she got off duty he was there to walk her to lunch, dinner, her cabin, and it was like he was always there. For example when she tripped in the engine room the other day he was there to catch her before she even hit the ground. Maybe he knew-no that's crazy!

However, that episode didn't cause the series to be cancelled. In early-2004, as I was recording the Nickelodeon sister channel, Nicktoons on my VCR, they aired an episode, that was made by Genndy Tartakovsky, the person behind Dexter's Laboratory, Hotel Transylvania, and Samurai Jack. It was entitled, "Death of the Beavers."
In 2001, when Genndy Tartakovsky left Cartoon Network, the creator of The Angry Beavers, Mitch Scaurer, met with him and said if he could make the episode, "Death of the Beavers." This resulting a cancellation for the show on Nickelodeon.
I browsed through my VHS collection, and what I had was an unaired episode of The Angry Beavers as we know it. I looked at the sticker label of the tape, it was scribble writing done in black sha

Lieutenant Deryn Sharp hurried down the halls of the recently-commandeered prison just south of Normandy, France, her unit was currently housed in, combat boots making loud "clicks" as their steel toes touched cold gritty stone. She spun her sidearm, a big heavy M1911, around on her finger with practiced ease, wanting to run to the brig but at the same time not wanting to break the image of professionalism she'd built around herself.
It was hard to do, really. She was on her way to conduct the interrogation of a captured Clanker soldier. Those were ALWAYS fun to do.

Terra opened her eyes up to the star-lit-night mural on the ceiling of her room at Titans Tower. She yawned and stretched before she got out of bed. Terra then went to her closet, picked out a clean uniform, and went to the bathroom to shower and dress. She then made her way to the main room where she knew the other Titans were eating breakfast. As the doors slid open and she entered the room, she was greeted by her green-skinned boyfriend.
"Good morning, princess," smiled Beast Boy as he kissed Terra on the cheek.
'Of all the nicknames he could have picked, why did he choose THAT one?' Terra thought as Beast Boy kissed her.

War Torn Heart"What a long horrible day." Ivan sighed as he sat down on a bench. He leaned back and looked up at the warm sun then closed his eyes. "I wish it is always this warm." He muttered to himself. As he leaned back forward he heard a familiar plop sound. "Not again." He sighed. He looked down and sitting in his lap was his heart. As he was about to put his heart back he stopped for a moment to look at it. He never noticed how beat up it was. Some parts of it where scarred and bruised and it seemed to be struggling to keep going. "Is it really beaten up this bad?" he wondered "I remember it was in a lot better shape, but that was a long time ago when I opened my heart to everyone. Before they betrayed me."

Rise of the TranshumansThe last battle for equal rights won't be for racial equality;Rise of the Transhumans4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It won't be for gender equality;
Not for sexual or gender orientation;
It will be a battle between two species:
Humans and Transhumans.
Unlike the other battles for equality, this one will be more than figurative;
It will take a great expense of blood
And in all likelihood result in the eventual extinction of the human race.
That's how dominant species function,
As one rises the other must logically fall
Transhumans will be smarter, stronger, and more capable than humans
Humans will eventually stop being the masters of their own planet
Transhumans will take the jobs of the elites, and outperform their human counterparts
Humans will respond, violently as usual
But they will loose.
What may start as a quest for equality for by both
Will end with the extinction of one.

It was a cold, dark night out in Skyrim, which was normal for the Northern Province. However, this particular night was even darker, and colder than the others, because Winter was fast approaching. However, it also provided for a wonderful ominous setting for what was about to occur. In Skryim, the winters were some of the coldest, given its northern location in the continent. Despite everything about the place practically shouting "COLD", an Argonian man wearing Dragonscale armor, a sign of having slain several dragons, was seen walking through the roads, with a woman of Nordic descent trailing closely behind. The Argonian had dark red war paint over his eyes, and dark green scales all over his body. Two horns sprouted out from the back of his head, and smaller horns lined his eye brows. His golden eyes looked along the wild scenery, taking in the still-breathtaking sights of Skyrim. Now, just because the Argonian man h
