It was the Ninth of November, 1989, a remarkable day in the history of Germany in which the Berlin Wall was pulled down. That morning, a young man of barely over 20 hovered over the counter in his kitchen, obsessively keeping it spotless. His blonde hair was slicked back and he wore a plain black T-shirt with jeans, blue eyes watching warily for anything in the house that he could clean or rearrange. Once he realized that everything was in order, he sighed and wiped the sweat off his brow. He had spent many sleepless nights that week thinking of the Wall finally being brought down and being able to see his older brother again.
"You have finally finished cleaning after months of work, Germany?" Austria asked jokingly as he took a moment to pass by.
The blonde man straightened up and gave the brown-haired man a stern look. "I am just making sure this house is in perfect condition before Prussia comes home," he stated.
What he said was true, but it was mostly to appease his anxiety of thi

"FREEZE!" One of the coppers yelled.
"Whoa, whoa. Slow down. I think there's been a misunderstanding." I said slowly. Shitshitshitshit. I am so screwed.
"Put your han- Put your claws in the air!" He yelled at me again.
Slowly, I raised my paws above my head. My tail was tense as a cable behind me, clearly a reflex in preparation for a battle. Not today, bro. I hope. The officer motioned for me with his gun to move away from Jim. I cautiously stepped to the side, focusing on coming up with something resembling a plan.
"Ahahah! I told you so! See? See? It's a bloody monster!" I heard Ben shout from behind a car.
"Will you shut up for just one second? We can see for ourselves." Another voice said.
A second cop nervously walked up to me, keeping his gun aimed directly at my muzzle. His eyes were darting around like a madmans, a sure sign

A MIG 55D transport helicopter! I never thought I'd get a chance to fly on one! It's great to have friends, isn't it, Shinji?-Kensuke

The clouds around them cleared, and up ahead, a fleet of ships came into view. The view was impressive; the glistening sun and bright ocean against the fleet of gray cruisers and battleships was picturesque.

AVP: Welcome To The HiveDarkness and pain, the dream always the same. I would be in a massive void, then I would start to hear voices, screaming and the such. I hated it because I started to always feel the pain, their pain. Pain that I had to inflict, not by choice, but I still did it. They called for me to help but all I wanted to do was block them out, I couldn't help! After a whole night of this I always woke up in a cold sweat, and sometimes a large head ache. And this time was no different.AVP: Welcome To The Hive5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
I sat up in my bed with a rush, the clock blaring next to me with a big 6:15-AM on it. I hit it shutting the thing up. I reached up and rubbed my head, which hurt beyond belief. It felt like I had just been beaten with a hammer while I slept in the same spot non-stop. And I know who held the hammer, The Xenomorphs, or Aliens to the less educated. I deserved it I guess, for all the times I'd put pain to them. I was a keeper, and even though I hated my job with a passion it kept me alive.
Keepers are kind of like guard
Dreams - Chapter FiveIndoor firing ranges are usually composed of one big concrete room, lined with reinforced baffles along the walls and roof. Ventilation shafts dot the space, constantly sucking out lead particles and smoke from the cartridge primers, bullets and leftovers from previous sessions. The back wall is often a sloping earthen bank with a collector, designed to stop and capture bullets that hits it. Targets can be both stationary, and in more modern facilities, moving. When designed as civilians, targets are usually made out of paper or plastic coreflute and sometimes when used for long-range shooting covered with some canvas on the back.Dreams - Chapter Five3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Most ranges are divided into several lanes, one for each person. The lanes differ much from situation to situation, but they most commonly only have a support for the gun. When using rifles, a chair might be there for the person to sit in.
The noise levels in a shooting range can reach over 140 Db, enough to cause permanent hearing loss and will in fact cause
Your Custom AdventureAlright. This is not a story... but I think it's something better.Your Custom Adventure4 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
What I have is a series of pre-prepared settings, situations, supporting characters, and narrative arcs. All within the Canon of my fiction.
What I don't have, is a main character.
Here's what I'm offering. You create a character (fill out a 'form' etc) and send me a note if you wanna play. I'll reply you with delicious narrative, then you reply me with what your character decides to do. Give me a few days to reply and I'll continue your personal story.
You may or may not get thrust suddenly in the thick of it... No guarantees on what era you'll find yourself in either.
When your story ends (either you complete the quest your hero/heroine gets reluctantly called to action to complete, or well, you made bad decisions...) then I'll post it as a story for everyone to read.
While I have a lot of material prepared, I haven't really fleshed out the system. I've come up with a bunch of info I'd like you to give (yo
Trunk Full of Rings - XenomorphAnother day, another ring, I think as I stare at the pure black ring in hand, rolling my eyes at the lack of help that gives me in guessing the form contained within this ring. No help at all, and Book will undoubtedly give me a cryptic answer, something I don't feel like working out right now. So instead I turn to the mirror upon the wall, before slipping the ring on.

A moment later and the first changes begin. I immediately start losing bodily fat across my body. I mean, I was never exactly obese, but right now I could easily be classed as anorexic. My bodies fat reserves are quickly depleted, and I look at myself in the mirror, wondering if that's it.
As if to answer, I notice my ribs begin to appear more predominate; my ribcage is growing! I realise, but the transformation continues before I can hypothesise why. The rest of my body mimics my ribcage, growing in size as my skin turns jet black in colour, while b

“I’ve gotten his name so far, but not much else. He seems to have some trouble understanding and speaking – frankly, I think just remembering his name was an effort.” I said, looking at Benjamin in the sofa. He was scanning the room with a haggard look on his face, as if he couldn’t really make heads or tails of what was happening. I can’t blame him, I suppose. Judging by his difficulty with speech, he had had either little to none contact with people, or been out of touch for a very long time. Most of the time I had spoken to him, all I’d gotten as a reply was a confused look and a faint hum every now and then.

Ramming his claws into the carcass, he snarled in frustration. How long had he been cut off? For how long had he actually been...this? The timespan was too much for him to fathom right now. Suddenly revolted by the thought of eating any more of the deer, he grabbed the neck of it and threw it as far away as he could. He bolted away, not wanting to see any more of the bloody scene. Half flying, half running towards the nearby stream, he tried to hold back his enraged tears.
He collapsed in the gravel on the beach and dipped his front paws into the water, feeling a sudden need to cleanse himself.

It had been exactly 5 days since my transformation into a Xenomorph and things were somewhat returning to normal. My Spring Break routine had been about the same for the past 5 days. I woke up with my dog right next to me or already downstairs, I came down and ate my breakfast, of which mostly included meats. I had been taking Tristan’s advice and eating sugary sweet foods to regain old tastes. I had already regained my tastes for waffles and dairy products (yay for me because my main foods have been cheeses and other dairy products) and my tastes for sodas and milk. I had mostly been eating bacon and other meats though, and each time I tasted them, they seemed tastier than they should’ve been. Well, that was to be expected because of my carnivorous appetite. I then spent the rest of my morning playing video games and trolling my two obnoxious brothers before eating lunch, of which then I’d spend the rest

He cocked his ears to either side, and he could hear every single individual bird and insect that made a noise. His nose picked up even the smallest traces of scents, and he could "see" the paths these scents paved. He could spot a cleverly disguised rattlesnake from what seemed to him as fifty feet away, and his paw pads felt every pebble and twig he stepped on sans the sensations of pain that particularly sharp stones would have caused him as a human.The Dragonsuit--Pt. 48 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

love is kind
It does not envy
it does not boast
Signs that read God hates fags
it is not proud
What are we doing?
It is not rude
This isn't what he told us
it is not self-seeking
He told us to love
it is not easily angered
To love our fellow man
it keeps no record of wrongs
No matter who they are
Love does not delight in evil
No matter what they've done
but rejoices with the truth
But after all the prayer
It always protects
After all the study
We still can't remember
The Greatest commandment
That Jesus left us
Love never fails.
