The city of Gotham was in full illumination in the dark of the night and, outside of the state courthouse, a crowd of news reporters, magazine and newspaper photographers, and political figures had gathered. As soon as one man walked out the door, they swarmed with cameras flashing, microphones at the ready, and questions bursting forth. The man in question was a candidate of an upcoming mayoral election with some…questionable moral choices.
Such choices included the possibility of blackmailing political enemies and hiring some of Gotham’s more…questionable individuals to back them up. Yet, with help from mentioned questionable individuals, he had walked out of the courthouse scot-free, and it showed on the satisfied grin that spread from cheek to cheek.

Hello. I am Aurora Unit four-eight-six, originally the Artificial Intelligence of Norion. However, because of a fatal accident on a planet far away, possibly SR388, I was transported to the G.F.S. Victoria to investigate. We took off to find the problem and possibly fix it, but a slight miscalculation of the slip space equation used resulted in the Victoria being transported to a planet outside of Federation space, called Cylosis. I now believe that the ship's computers were hacked, but not via Space Pirate technology.
Upon exiting the slip space rupture, a hazy planet was seen below us. It seemed to be either always

Delta Squad remained in the weapons training room even after the others had left, uncomfortable with waiting while there was a mystery waiting to be solved on "Planet StarChild". It was named "StarChild" after it appearing out of no where two months ago. No known inhabitants, parents, environment all seemed native to those who saw it. Out of curiosity (and precaution), the Delta squad was to be sent as an investigation team to gain information on this "unknown rock"... But for now, the team was to wait as instructed by Gabe (a male scientist who assisted in the making of the clones) while he brought out "Their new team member".
Sev (RC-1207) used this wasted time of waiting to his advantage by attacking holographic droids. Scorch (RC-1162) and Fixer (RC-1140) sat on near by crates while the Delta Squad team leader, Boss or 38(RC-1138) paced anxiously.

Anyway, ever since I joined dA, I've noticed something. Among the dozens of comments one might get, there's always some dumbass making a stupid comment on someone's picture. No matter what you submit, some idiot feels the need to leave you a stupid comment for one reason or another. At first I didn't think anything of it, but then as I looked through comments on peoples' pictures or comments that are shown to me by friends, I noticed something- comments that always fit within a certain category! Since there are few things that annoy me more than idiots (which are idiots who think you owe them a favor for some shit they did or sometimes for no reason at all), I feel the need to rip apart their little

Round 4: Part 6
Stan led me along the border of the towering buildings, their shadows casting across us, forming a weak sense of camouflage. I doubted it was very convincing. Still, I said nothing, trusting that wherever we were going would be safer than where the hungry creatures were. Their calls still echoed every now and again in the distance. I was sure they had caught our scent and were chasing us down.
Part of me hoped the priest's body would satisfy them for now. As terrible as it sounded.
"We need to to find something to hide in," Stan thought out loud, not taking his eyes off the path before us, "Just for awhile, until it's safe to go back."
"But Stan, we need to get back to the gathering den. What if the round has already ended?"

Robert Fillmore was the head of circulation at the Blackthorn Public Library. Getting called into the boss's office wasn't something anybody looked forward to. Rebecca swallowed the lump in her throat and composed herself before knocking.
"You wanted to see me, Mr. Fillmore?"
"Yes, do come in!" The cougar seemed to be in high spirits, a fact that did little to set his guest at ease. He was well known for taking sadistic pleasure in delivering bad news.

Oblivious to their enslavement to the darkness' pleasures

Plans that are long forgotten
And must be destroyed and brought to a bitter end

And they wouldn't be lost in this twisted world of deception and strife

Call him drunken Ira Hayes, he don't answer any more.
Not the whiskey drinking Indian, the marine who went to war.
A beaten up jukebox played old country songs in the corner of the bar. Outside, the mid-afternoon sun beat down on the cracked clay floor. The rocks surrounding the small mining town of Cripple Creek almost seemed to glow in the heat, and the horizon was half-hidden by haze. The township went about its business under the watchful eye of the local Dominion garrison.
But those in the Pink Moon sheltered from that world. The barman, Townes, was an old war veteran with only one arm. In place of the other was a crude robotic substitute. He served up drinks with little more than a vice, powered by a handful of servos which were connected to his arm just below the elbow. He was strangely proud of the device he'd often joke that he'd never play piano again, but his sex-life had improved tremendously.

The golden hands on a large pocket watch read 11:00pm. They told her she should be fast asleep, but the little girl with a gold ribbon in her hair could not sleep. This night was the bookend of an uneventful day. After only half-heartedly enjoying the spectacles of trained swine at a small travelling circus, she had gone to a fancy dress store, Petit Lulu, where she had seen so many pretty dresses. She could not bring herself to choose just one. Merchandise to her left; merchandise to her right; she exited the store empty handed. The girl refused to let her day end without some consequence to mark it worthy of her having woken up in the first place. She was determined to have an adventure; dreaming was gradually becoming a less satisfying way of escape from the room her mother had so carefully decorated for her. Lying in bed, warming the pocket watch in her hands, she watched shadows of the fog outside creep across the furniture in her room.

Gil is spawned from the love of old sci-fi serials and of course movies and shows I grew up with. I always had fun with the over confident male who had nothing going for him but great head of hair. Gil has been that guy. I had done (as some of you may know) 5 pages for samples to Heavy Metal, which got politely ignored. I made changes suggested by Kevin Eastman, and those just werent enough. So, with the "basic" premise intact, I am moving forward with changes.
Gil a former Galactic Guardian, think of his old team as like an NCIS of space. During a routine mission, Gil is taken hostage by a slave trader. A half human half reptillian she-beast named Rowena. This is of concern to our hero, since shes a sex slave trader. Taking prime males from each species across the galaxy to sell to the hopeless female populace across hundreds of alien worlds.

He slid his cell phone shut, covering the front screen with his palm to block out the light it made. He imagined that the light from his phone must have made him look like a disembodied head floating in the darkness. He had to grin at that.
The phone vibrated in his hand; he quickly slid it open to silence the buzzing.
"Ok, be careful," the message read. He slid the phone shut again and turned it off. Of course he'd be careful. There was no need to warn him.

It all began many years ago. Mrs. John Wolf, the good lady Anita Tail, had been dead for little over a year, yet her husband had already squandered the majority of her family's vast fortune. Their son, Brandon, had left home just after her passing, leaving his father to do as he pleased. It was a sad time in Thornvale as one-by-one the residents packed up and left. Some didn't want to deal with the John's cruel nature; others simply couldn't pay the exuberant rent and fees he placed on their holdings.
Those days are long behind us, now. Mr. Wolf died a short while later, leaving only a fraction of the family's once immense wealth for his son to inherit. Even so, it was enough for a practical individual to live for the rest of their life in relative comfort and ease. Brandon wasn't that kind of person.
Oh, I'm sorry. My name is Roxanne Von Drake. I've worked for the Tail family for over thirty years, so I'm the one to ask if you're looking to hear all about their rich and noble heritage
