Sam opened her eyes to the inky darkness of the Idlewyld night. Something had woken her, but she wasnt quite sure what. She rubbed at her increasingly rounding stomach, but didnt feel anyone kicking at her at the moment. Jack was sound asleep next to her, so whatever it had been hadnt been enough to disturb him.
Shrugging it off Sam closed her eyes again. Before she could drift back to sleep a distant sound caught her full attention. This time she sat up and listened carefully for the noise to repeat itself. Even though she was greeted with silence she got out of bed anyway.
The whirr of a dialing Gate was something she was intimately familiar with. However the sound didnt have the right timing for someone to be dialing in or out, nor had there been the characteristic splash of the vortex. As she walked through the halls the alcove lights turned on a so

What youve done
When you walked around with that lost little soul
I thought it was silly
You told me
You wanted to give him a happy last memory
Its all too clear now
What you wanted
In this overgrown little graveyard
To make your last memory a happy one
When you fade
She tells me that Ill forget you
But before the memory backs away
I can still hear
The sweet echo of your voice

My First LoveI was always very innocent when I was a teenager. I had my first boyfriend when I was 16, sweet 16...he was 19. He lived 50 kms away so he came to see me every weekend.My First Love4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
He played the guitar and sang beautifully. I liked that about him. He was very sweet.
We would write lots of letters during the week...I still have his letters...I still read his letters every now and then and I smile... We had a good time together...innocent...romantic.
When we first started dating, we went for a walk in the evening. It was very quiet and it was getting dark. Then we stopped and stood under a tree. He held me and pressed his body against mine and kissed me. It was beautiful, so gentle at first, and slowly it was harder and deeper. His tongue met mine and they entwined. It was long and deep. It was so good. He pulled me to him ,held me real tight and I could feel he was getting hard...But he didn't go any further. It was meant to be our first kiss...

I have no face. There was a time when I may have owned one, but this is a fuzzy half-memory. In fact, it may be entirely an invention of fantasy. These days, regardless of my history, I know for a fact that I have no face. However, I have been granted a name: The American Obesity Problem. And I am growing in the United States. You may have seen me on television. You may have been witness to my disconcerting back cleavage and mystified by the seamless transition my legs make from my calves into my ankles. You probably saw my unsettlingly large, shelf-like behind as it strained against my tight Capri pants that I swore I would fit into someday and, when I didn't lose the weight, decided to wear anyway because, "If I spend more than $30 on pants I better damn well find a way to squeeze into them." You may have caught a glance of ponytail resting on my back, or a peek at several of my lower chins. But

2012 in 50's-world, everyone in the US wears hats. Men wear suits, women wear dresses or cute pantsuits. T-shirts and jeans or sweats are something nobody older than a teenager would be caught wearing. There are a lot of uniforms. Everything is very clean and often metallic or gleaming.
The Cold War is of course going on, and China, the Soviet Union, indeed everything from East Germany to Vietnam is the Red World, a unified entity which includes some parts of Africa, including the Red Congo. (Cuba, on the other side, is Capitalist and more-or-less democratic, if corrupt). Everyone in the Red World dresses the same, drives the same standard car, and reports for interrogation four times a year. (Except for the Inner Committee. But to get to that position on must have taken the interrogation drugs dozens of times). Although a "standardized" Socialist culture is promoted, the Chinese are still Chinese, and the increasing tendency of

While I cry.
As I die...
Inside, I come undone.
I am here with myself.
It seems as if,
I am the only one in this world...
I'm unforgiving, for my sins.
The pain I have caused others.
This is where it all began -
In my mind.
I have already gone.
I am no longer the person I used to be.
The old me is gone.
And in her place lies an empty shell.
It has all become a part of my life.
And I just want it to stop!

The opening image depicts a city square fallen into decay and ruin, ravaged by the tides of nuclear war. In the midst of the city square, a man stands with his back to the camera, draped in a grey trench coat and an officer's cap on his skull. As the narrator speaks, the camera slowly zooms in on the back of his head.
Narrator: In the midst of a ruined city, forgotten by time, stands a lone figure. His real name is known to none but him, and even he may not remember it... To the men under his command, he is known simply as 'The Captain'.
The Captain turns, revealing the custom designed respirator and goggles on his face, and looks just above and behind the camera.
Captain: How many times must I tell you, stop narrating my life!

Ichigo laid in his bed, staring out the window and up into the night sky, thinking, thinking hard. His orange brows were creased with concentration, and a scowl was set upon his face as he thought.
There was a woman, a fair looking woman, with dark purple hair that fell just past her shoulders. Her eyes were amber, a deep, beautiful amber that held such warmth that it could sooth even the coldest of hearts.
Ichigo's eyes narrowed as he tried to recall the rest, reaching into his subconscious and grasping whatever else he could of what happened.
We were in a meadow, and she was in the distance, laughing, twirling in the wind as it whistled past her and enveloped her in its cool arms. When she saw me she stopped. She stopped moving, going into complete stillness. She hardly even breathed, as if her own breath had caught in her throat.
We both just stood there, looking at each other, neither one of us mak

against the earth and rocks they grind
swaying hips back to and fro,
the light above, the dirt below.
tunneling morning noon and night,
alone in darkness, but that's alright,
digging, napping, feeding too
that's what moles sure like to do.
I do perceive their cutesy motions,
they have no need for whimsical notions
and with eyes wide open you might find,
that moles are furry, small and blind.

With your energy.

But, in the end,
You looked at me,
And you said:

The Korean population has by now been reduced to bands of squabbling scavengers. With no international organisms powerful enough to sway the superstates into a cause and fearing the spread of diseases caused by biochemical weapons, Eastasia doesn't help the survivors.
-The Neo-European Union imposes itself diplomatically and economically over the post-Russian republics and smaller nations. Numerous diplomatic conferences are had throughout the course of the year between the rulers of the failed states and the NEU's mastercomputer.
-By the end of the year, the talks culminate in the dissolution of the Neo-European Union as it becomes a much larger state: Eurasia. This new superstate quickly becomes the second most powerful nation on Earth after Eastasia. Russian nationalist resistance manifests itself in the form of sporadic terrorism.
