Walking hand in hand, Skye and Cyan returned from their date at the aquarium. As they approached the antique shop, they spotted Nagisa and Zain walking towards them from the opposite direction. Skye and Cyan were dressed in their winter clothes, but Nagisa and Zain mysteriously had hints of sunburn across their skin. Once they reached the front door of the shop, they froze in place as the realization hit them.
"You were...." Cyan began.
"....gone too?" Nagisa finished.
All four of them entered the shop, expecting the worst. Fortunately, the shop was just as they had left it. Gwen smiled at them from behind the register and greeted them as they entered.
"Eh? Did you two go to a tanning salon?" Gwen said incredulously at the two mermen.
"Uh..." Nagisa couldn't even think of an excuse, for he didn't even know what a tanning salon was.
All four of them were much too concerned about the state of the upper levels to give Gwen a proper answer. As the climbed up the stairs, with Skye in the le

The question loomed in the air before my body, as if a sword looming over someone almost conquered by their enemy. But I looked down at my hands and then back up, only to say, "Have you ever felt the pain of watching two lovers embrace at the end of a movie? It's supposed to be a happy ending. But your heart tells your lungs to stop breathing for just a minute because it will never ever be yours."
"Do you fear death?"
A question repeated deserves an answer. But instead, my trembling hands sat clenched on my lap, the blue ink like veins showing through the frail covering that might rip apart any second. "Do you know what it's like to wake up in the middle of the night to hear a song, just to remind yourself, you're going to be all right? Over and over again until it doesn't work anymore."
"Do you fear death?"
The invisible chain linked through my fingers, and I closed my tired eyes, this time, hearing the impatience in th

empty black screen.
Narrator: In the beginning, there was only darkness,
a black void that blanketed eternity and the vast reaches of the universe…
An explosion rips
suddenly appears in the middle of the screen, spreading outward leaving stars
and planets in its wake. Narrator speaks through the explosion, and then
continues to speak as the planets and stars rotate in the background.
Narrator: Then, for reasons that are still disputed,
an explosion ripped through the void leaving a mass of free floating particles
in its wake. Some came to say call the event the "Big Bang" a sudden change in
the emptiness of the universe that caused molecules to rapidly alter their
shapes, creating planets and stars, which would later go on to become the
catalysts for life.
An ethereal figure made
of swirling dust, and stars appear behind the planets.
Others considered this an awakening of a powerful being

On a dark, rainy day, a girl carried a bundle down to the cemetery. There was a small hole in the ground with a tombstone behind it where the girl bent over and placed the bundle in the hole. Removing the blanket that covered the thing, the girl revealed an Eevee. Sadly, the little Pokèmon did not jump up into it's trainer's arms. It was gone. The trainer buried the Eevee and walked away from the grave as the rain began to turn into a storm.
The next day, the girl sat in her room staring at the wiggling fire. A knock sounded on the door and the girl opened it. "Hey Donna!" Said the girl who appeared at the door.
"Hey," Donna replied dully.
Donna's friend looked concerned and put the box that was in her arms on a nearby chair. "You're still upset, aren't you?" She whispered.
"Donna, you be upset forever! I've brought you a present that will hopefully cheer you up."
Donna glanced at the box and sat down next to i

MASS EFFECT 3 ALTERNATE ENDING *SPOILERS OBVIOUSLY*
**EDIT** Holy crap this got way more attention than I was expecting. The comments and support have been amazing everyone!
A few points: Credit where credit is due; this ending, as much as everyone seems to love it, was only created because the amazing team at Bioware created a universe that was so rich and full of life and detail. As much as I know a lot of fans are hurt by what they did, we need to remember that Bioware still created an incredible trilogy, one of the best ever. So hats off to them all round.
Also, this was written really fast and so the ending (specifically the last part on how you actually win using TIM's signal) isn't very fleshed out. I know there are holes, and they can actually be fixed quite easily. This isn't perfect. Also, this doesn't deal with a 'happy' ending. If there were to be one, or you were to even CONSIDER taking the fourth option, you'd need to be damn ready. I'm talking ALL war assets e
