Draw nigh with your arrows dipped in poison.
Let your lying lips come close to my ear.
Let your deceitful eyes meet mine.
The time has come once again.
The time to reveal your true nature.
You live to shed blood, my "friends".
You live to watch me suffer.
Come now, and pierce my heart once again,
with words that slaughter my very soul;
that cause my life to bleed out inside of me,
with rivers of tears that seem to have no end.
Come. Stare at my suffering,
with pitiless eyes that know no empathy;
with lips shaped in joyous smiles.
With laughter and joy, dance around my pain.
Your venomous words penetrate my being.
I stumble from all the pain of your poison.
Light and life is slowly drained.
Shrouding me in darkness
Have I pleased you now my "friends"?
In the midst of my pain, I see you laughing.
Surely my suffering was not in vain,
For you are happy.
The earth is made drunk by my blood.
Blood shed to satisfy your evil thirst.

He surveyed the cavern again, slowly re-examining all the corners. He checked the load in his bolter, and advanced, weapon at the ready, continuing to scan in visible light, infrared, and wireframe overlay. The ripples and folds of the tunnel played tricks on the mind, casting odd shadows and concealing entire caverns behind seemingly solid formations of stone.
“Nileas,” he voxed again. “Brother, do you copy?” Likewise the dense rock played havoc with the vox net. He had no contact with his squad commander, or Imperial forces on the surface, and, up until a quarter-hour ago, only intermittent contact with his battle brother, and that plagued by static. Now it seemed that too was gone.

Auri jerks out of bed for a moment and glances around the her dark bedroom, waiting for her eyes to adjust. She sits up in bed and yawns before she reaches for the light switch on her lamp nearby when she hears a sudden creak of metal outside. The Four freezes for a moment and listens hard.
She hears the creak again only this time it is fainter, sounding off farther down.
Is someone trying to get in? the commander thinks to herself as she gets out of from under the warm covers. Once her bare feet hit the cold metal flooring, she's grateful she had slept in warm clothes. The winters at this base were brutal, the captain had told her and he was right. The Four reaches into her nightstand nearby and picks up her pistol before she pads quietly across the room to her door. She eases it open and glances out. Blue eyes squint into the darkness before she opens the door.
Silence greets the Spartan as she steps out into the dark hallway. She looks left and right before walking forw

"Should we all go?" Splash asked.
"No, that'd be too dangerous." Vex sighed, he looked at Arya and then her body, Arya gave him a look and Vex caught it.
"No, no, maybe you should go because you're smaller." Vex suggested and Splash scoffed.
"But she's a female!"
"That doesn't matter. She's smaller so she has less a chance of being seen and-," Vex started but Splash cut him off.
"I don't care if she's smaller! I'm smarter!" Splash hissed.
"If zombies go after her, she probably has a chance of slipping between small spaces and getting away. Or even hiding." Vex hissed and Splash folded his arms.
Arya opened the back of the truck, the streets were deserted and a few of the shops windows had been smashed open. Vex handed her a large bag, "Just incase you find anything. Just get things that you think we'd need."
She slipped out of the truck with her bow in hand and the bag strapped to her back. Vex and Splash watched her as she pushed open the stores door gently and slid inside.

Leeds is the first awake. Shadows of his dreams still echo in his eyes when he paces into the kitchen and startles her.
"You're too quiet." She smiles.
He doesn't. "Did you sleep?"
"I couldn't," she says.
He just nods. She pours him coffee. He drowns it in milk and sugar. They welcome the morning in companionable silence.
"I wanted to be there for him." It's a whisper. He stares at the coffee mug in his hands, seeing something very different. "I saw him get hit. I wanted to be there so bad. I would have gone in, but Vance held me back. Probably saved my life.
"Zack." He stops, almost overwhelmed, then forces himself to go on. "I would do anything for him. I would die for him. But I couldn't be there." His eyes are rimmed with tears.
She lays her hand over his.

To the shores of Tripoli;
We fight our country's battles
In the air, on land, and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
Of United States Marine.
Our flag's unfurled to every breeze
From dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in every clime and place
Where we could take a gun;
In the snow of far-off Northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes;
You will find us always on the job
The United States Marines.
Here's health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve;
In many a strife we've fought for life
And never lost our nerve;
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven's scenes;
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines.

Guard with special care our Holy Father, the Pope, and our bishops, priests, all our religious and lay people, and especially the children.
Saint Michael, watch over us during life, defend us against the assaults demons, and assist us especially at the hour of death. Help us achieve the happiness of beholding God face to face for all eternity. Amen.
Saint Michael, intercede for me with God in all my necessities. Obtain for me a favorable outcome in the matter I recommend to you. Mighty prince of the heavenly host, and victor over rebellious spirits, remember me for I am weak and sinful and so prone to pride and ambition. Be for me, I pray, my powerful aid in temptation and difficulty, and above all do not forsake me in my last struggle with the powers of evil. Amen.
Portal 2 Remember: 1What does one do when stuck in the middle of nowhere, having no memory of being in the outside world before, standing in a large field and clutching to a burnt cube that has been your only memorable friend? Where does one go? Where could one go? Did they even have a family, a home or someone they knew to help them? The chances of finding at least some sort of civilization would take days, even weeks of continuous walking. That meant no food, no water and even pushing their way through the night just to get moving. One had to start off somewhere even with that one tug inside the heart that gave hope on where to go and what to do, it was better than nothing. One step is all it takes to start the journey of one's lifetime even if what they can remember of their life was just bits and pieces of lost memories. With this in mind, a step was taken and the tired girl with the giant cube began her long walk to where her heart was telling her to be somewhere safe somewherPortal 2 Remember: 14 years ago in Romance More Like This
Genesect ReportGenesect (the Paleozoic Pokémon) is a legendary Bug/Steel-type Pokémon currently existing within the Unova Pokémon sanctuary known as Pokémon Hills, though it cannot be said for certain if this accounts for all known specimens. Though the data available on these creatures might be extensive thanks in part to the collapse of Team Plasma, Genesect are nonetheless exceptionally strange and mysterious creatures that literally defy what was once thought to be morally possible among insects. If you ever manage to see one of these monstrous insects, do whatever it takes to get out of the area as soon as possible; they might not seem that dangerous, but if you so much as step foot in front of one of these insects, you'll quickly find out why these cyborgs truly are the fiercest fossil Pokémon to ever be resurrected!Genesect Report4 years ago in Profiles More Like This

Beedrill ReportBeedrill (the Poison Bee Pokémon) is an uncommon Bug/Poison-type Pokémon found among the forested regions of the Kanto, Johto, Unova and Kalos regions as well parts of the Sevii Islands and the Hoenn and Sinnoh regions on rare occasions. Though generally ignored in favor of more powerful Bug-types, Beedrill are dangerous fighters for early trainers to face because of their potent poisons, strong physical attacks and decent movement speeds. Of course, facing a single Beedrill in combat is rarely enough to send fear into the hearts of many trainers; an entire swarm, however, is another question entirely!Beedrill Report4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Beedrill are designed to be fighters immediately after emerging from their cocoons, learning the potent Fury Attack move immediately upon evolving and continuing to learn moves that work perfectly with their combat styles. Beedrill possess relatively weak physical defenses and so rely on hit-and-run tactics when hunting and scaring off potential predators and individuals trespa
Drifblim ReportDrifblim (the Blimp Pokémon) is a rare Ghost/Flying-type Pokémon found floating in the sky in all parts of the world. Though somewhat lacking in decent offenses and exceptionally weak in terms of defenses, Drifblim are resilient creatures that can take a lot of punishment in battle while dishing out a bit of their own with attacks like Ominous Wind and Explosion. Even if you don't want to fight with one, you should at least consider taking one for a ride across the countryside; just don't expect to arrive at any particular destination at the end, as your travel plans will likely need some major rescheduling!Drifblim Report5 years ago in Profiles More Like This
As with Pokémon like Yamask, it is believed that Drifloon and Drifblim are formed from the spirits of deceased creatures; in their case, however, there appears to be no distinction between different forms of life, so every Drifloon or Drifblim is merely a random assortment of resurrected life forms stuck together in one cohesive unit. This also might explain why Drif
Escavalier ReportEscavalier (the Cavalry Pokémon) is an exceptionally rare Bug/Steel-type Pokémon found among grassy fields and marshes within the Unova and Kalos regions, though they are usually only found in the possession of trainers. Incredibly powerful and heavily-armored, Escavalier are highly-destructive beasts capable of decimating almost anything placed in their path regardless of type. They might be among the slowest-moving Pokémon out there, but once these bugs get going, it can definitely be said that anything short of an absolute firestorm will be unable to keep them from delivering a Giga Impact that will make even your doctor cringe!Escavalier Report4 years ago in Profiles More Like This

Golett ReportGolett (the Automaton Pokémon) is an uncommon Ground/Ghost-type Pokémon found among ancient buildings within the Unova and Kalos regions. While they certainly might not be recent additions to the world, Golett are nonetheless bizarre creatures that, along with Golurk, truly defy the boundaries that are otherwise believed to separate the living world from the spirit world. What is known, however, is that these creatures can be difficult to deal with if you are not prepared for some serious punishment; they might not look to dangerous, but get in their way, and you'll quickly find out just how painful it is to be clocked by a Mega Punch attack from a clay fist!!Golett Report4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
In terms of origin, it appears that Golett are the artificial product of an ancient Unovan civilization from thousands of years ago.
