Main Street, Silent Hill
Three lumbering figures lumbered forth from the trademark fog of Silent Hill, reaching the three-way intersection at the center of Main Street. From the right end of the street, the Umbrella Corporation’s greatest weapon trudged into view, brandishing a rocket launcher. From the top, dragging a cartoonishly giant knife across the pavement, came Silent Hill’s most famous resident. Finally, from the left end of the street, Rapture’s fall embodied in the giant in the diver’s suit.
All three combatants stared each other down. In lieu of noise in an otherwise completely silent environment, each of the three made their own, idiosyncrati

He's here, everyone soon figured, but had no clue why he was calling Russia's name.
"...Da?" Russia asked, eyebrow raised. He was standing while the others were seated, waiting for the meeting to begin.
Out of nowhere, America ran into the room, and with a yell rivaling those in the movie 300, he threw himself at Russia. Of course, being such a... large country, He didn't budge, and Alfred was left clinging to the other.
"What's wrong with you now, Git?" Arthur asked sourly, in a bad mood any time he had to see the other's face.
"Russia!" America yelled. "He's betrayed me! Ivan, I thought we were on the same side!"
"I'm afraid I don't know what you're talking about..." Ivan said with a smile. "But You clinging to me in such a way is slightly uncomfortable."

"Hey, Germany!" Italy cheerfully called out upon entering, without even knocking on the door to, his friend's home.
"Uggh." Italy heard Germany groaned and followed the noise. Germany's face was planted on the kitchen table, his arms hanging limply at his sides, and a few empty bottles of beer were aligned nearby. Italy pulled up a chair and petted his friend's head. He knew this look before. Many a times he found his brother Romano in the same position.
"You got dumped." Italy's straightforward comment earned him another growl from Germany. "That's a pity. I mean she was cute and fun and I really liked her and Germany you're looking at me all scary now "
Germany finally stopped glaring at Italy and lifted his head up to rubbed at the red marks left by the table.
"Hey cheer up, Germany." Italy patted Germany's shoulder. "She was just your first girlfriend, right? Everyone gets dumped and, hmm " Italy brought his hand to his chin and rubbed it. "Though now th

She stayed silent as she watched the scene before her. Sasuke Uchiha had Naruto pinned on the ground. She stepped from the crowd of Shinobi and closed her eyes. "I will not let you hurt Naruto, Sasuke." She got the Uchiha's attention. "Get out of here Hinata! I can't let you die!" Naruto cried out under Sasuke's grip.
"Let him go!" Hinata opened her eyes as her byakugan was activated. Sasuke pulled Naruto up by the collar of his jacket. "Sasuke! Leave Hinata be!" Naruto tried to release himself, but was too weak to do so. The fighting behind them was very loud, but they did not hear it. The breeze gently swayed Hinata's long hair.
Naruto passed out, and Sasuke dropped him. "Naruto!" Hinata took a step towards Naruto, but was pushed away by Sasuke. "I want your eyes. Come and join us, and you will not die." Sasuke growled and pulled out a sword. "I would rather die than to be against the Hidden Leaf!" Hinata got into her fighting stance,

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.
Before Terra had rejoined the Titans, they'd met her older half-brother Geo-Force and found out she was the daughter of the king of Markovia. When she rejoined the team and found out they knew of her origin, she tried to have them treat h
Conservatives and ReactionariesThe meaning of words is too important to ignore in politics, and there is one word that has been mutilated into something grotesque by the worst elements of our political discourse. Conservative. Its an idea that advocates trying to preserve things as they are by emphasizing stability and continuity. It is an ideology that does not fear change, but simply wishes for it to be managed well. Too many politicians identifying as conservative today are in fact reactionaries. Reactionaries oppose modernism and seek a return to "the way things were," a goal historically being both futile and self destructive; something the current Republican party is demonstrating with startling persistance. True conservatives are not concerned with trivial changes in our culture, but rather the long term continuity of the national spirit. The Reactionaries have been given their moment, and it is time to send them back to irrelevance where they belong.Conservatives and Reactionaries2 years ago in Editorial More Like This

"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
ATandT represses the poorToday I found out something that really pissed me off. AT&T has a monopoly hold on rural areas and will prevent any chance of upward economic movement. We got charged more for internet than what we were promised so we tried to call for a new bundle package and found a good deal in DirectTv. But when we gave our address, they told us that AT&T has us locked into a monopoly that cannot even get a basic bundle package where we are. This is just the perfect example of Corporate America's repression on the poor and keeping them where they are at in life. It is a given that in this day and age you need electronic infastructure and such to get yourself in a position to try and make something better of yourself. Practices like this one only keep one down and can never make something of themselves. So next time I hear a politican complain about welfare, why not give us rural poor a chance to make something of ourselves and kill practices like AT&T has on rural Americans everywhere!

She struggled to remember the last time that she had kisses those lips, and what it had felt like. She couldn't remember if it had been a passionate, bloodthirsty or if it had been slow, and spontaneous. She pulled the sleeves of her jacket closer to her hands, trying to get them to cover her bare wrists. The cold had already started nipping at Deryn's cheeks and her exposed fingertips. There was no awful smell of death and decay in the room, just the faint scent of anti-bacterial

Rise of the TranshumansThe last battle for equal rights won't be for racial equality;Rise of the Transhumans3 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.

I couldn't believe how right they were even after all these years.
I looked upon the wall; saw the faces in the stone,
The faces of young men yearning to come home.
I looked upon the wall and relived that horrid night.
When the Vietcong attacked and I fought my first true fight,
I still hear the sounds of the bullets whistling by.
I still see the blasts and I watch my buddies die.
Those were men my brethren, their courage passed the test,
In that fight for freedom they found eternal rest.
I remember to this moment every second of that day,
As the Vietcong came charging and took my friends away.
I never will forget until the day I reach the grave.
All my comrades fallen whose lives I could not save.
If I look into the wall this is what I'll see.
My memories of my days in 'Nam will be forever haunting me.
Every night I lay in bed and too the lord I pray.
"Please watch and protect those men who aren't with us here today."
