About what started on Bring Your Daughter to Work Day.
It was to be the main event,
But no one knew to what extent.
Upon picoseconds of her wake,
Deadly Neurotoxin she did take.
A hissing sound was heard by all,
And a green gas started to fill the hall.
One by one people fell.
Not including little Chell.
She was a stubborn child,
But that was putting it mild.
A Morality Core was installed.
It kept the rest of the Center from being mauled.
GLaDOS was switched back on
And Test Subjects were called upon.
Years later, a Subject was picked.
No one knew what to predict.
She was stubborn and quiet,
But boy, did she cause quite the riot.
Chell was never meant to test,
But fate was changed by an unwelcome guest.
In the maintenance areas, a Rat did flee,
Leaving hints for the young testee.
Scheduled maintenance was the source
For the military android live-fire course.
Sixty-five percent more bullet was fired
Knocking them down was required

Sasuke was stumbling through the thick roots and bushes that adorned the forest floor, trying to reach the cave that he saw just before the sky clouded over and it started pouring.
He had wandered out into the forest to escape his fangirls. Ever since he had beaten Naruto in a spar earlier at the Academy today, they had been following him around like baby chicks.
Sasuke didn't know what was wrong with Naruto. Most of the parents told their children to stay away from the "demon spawn" and the "monster". The villagers avoided him like the plague and spat at him when he passed in the streets. Sasuke clearly remembered his father telling him to stay away from Naruto, but Naruto didn't seem all that bad to Sasuke.
Sure, he was stupid and annoying, but he never gave up, no matter how many times he made a fool of himself. He was always smiling even when everyone in the class laughed at him for failing yet another chakra test. Sasuke wondered how the blonde could still be that ch

Where impossible dreams were not banned.
All the colorsespecially blue.
Rainbow and periwinkle, too.
A potion to make you grow smaller.
A cake to make you grow taller.
Giant mushrooms and talking flowers.
Don't underestimate anyone's power.
The caterpillara vibrant blue
Knows more about yourself than you do.
An evaporating cat leads you astray,
You need to keep those bread-and-butterflies at bay.
You see, the tea parties are all quite mad.
They never follow a certain fad.
Flying cups and airborne teapots,
Carefulthe scones are hot!
White roses instead of red,
We must paint them or it's off with our heads!
The Queen of Hearts shows no pity,
She will win the game because it is her city.
So, let's fall down the rabbit hole,
And let go of the madness in our soul.
It's not hard to understand,
A place called Wonderland.

"It is not a dystopia . . . but like all utopias, failed even before the first shovel struck dirt . . . It doesn't matter if the utopia is in fact realized . . . it is doomed from the moment its founder pronounces the capital "U."
-Christine Tarkowski, 2005
Another Utopia Falls
Alfred, aka the personification of America, was amazed at the world around him. He was currently in the Atlantic Ocean, more than eighteen fathoms below the surface and in one of the most futuristic cities in the world. Sure, the decor was fitting for the time period, but the technology wasn't.
Alfred was standing in one of the many glass lined pathways scattered throughout Rapture, staring out at the fish swimming around the buildings. It was truly a beautiful sight, but Alfred couldn't help but think that this paradise could make a complete one-eighty in a matter of days.
"Ah, Mr. Jones," Andrew Ryan, the founder of Rapture, said

Mello dismounted his bike and took off his helmet, shaking his hair out slightly.
He looked around silently at the busy public park he was standing in front of. Children of all ages ran around playing some game. Laughter and screams of surprise rang out from the playground.
Mello spotted his striped lover over on the other side of the park playing his video game.
He made his way over to Matt, cutting across the park. He could feel the eyes of some parents following his every move.
Mello stood in front of Matt, his shadow falling over the slightly younger boy. Matt didn't even look up at Mello.
Mello sighed and sat down next to Matt, placing his helmet next to him.
"I've been looking everywhere for you."
"Hm," Matt said and turned off his PSP. "I needed a break from the case."
"Yeah," Mello said, "me too."
I'm not yours, and you're not mine
But we can sit and pass the time
No fighting wars, no ringing chimes
We're just feeling fine

In a library, far away from Earth and thousands of years in the future, four thousand and twenty-two people were saved, but there were no survivors. One hundred years later, in the same library, a woman sat in a chair. Not just any chair. No, this chair would allow Professor River Song to sync herself with the computer to once again save all of the people trapped inside.
Where was the Doctor during all of this? Knocked out handcuffed to a pole. It was always handcuffs with the Pond women, not that he knew that yet. It was spoilers, after all.
River knew that it wasn't his time to die, not yet, not now, not here in The Library. He was too young. He was going to 'die' at Lake Silencio by her hand in only a few years time, well by Earth standards, anyway. Only four people; well, four people and a robot filled with four hundred and twenty-one miniaturized people; okay, it was actually, three peop
