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.
You wield weapons t

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

She turned on her back and looked at the white ceiling,sighing.She began to close her eyes as everything around her went silent and dark.
She awoke in a forest that seemed endless.The trees where all dead,gray,lowering down sometimes.She picked herself up and began to walk trying to find anyone in this dead forest.Suddenly a figure was seen,a small girl.She came close to her and reached out for her.
It was no female,it was a silhouette of a young girl.She wore a white dress,and held a stuffed bear.She began running.

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.

"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.

We were exhausted, getting separated from the travel guide was a really bad idea. Well was it my fault the trapinch tend to set their traps even on the path? My foot got stuck in one of those and the guide just told me to catch up. Well by the looks of it no one was looking for us. "Guess we're camping out tonight old boy."

Hoover Dam, Mojave. 2280.
War, Anne F. Jones mused in her head as she made her way towards the makeshift stage, the sounds of gunfire still echoing in the far distance. War never changes. But neither should common sense! The blond girl groaned for the nth time, her hands straightening the skirt and necktie of her dress uniform as she moved past the gathering soldiers. Some of them were excited, though most others were more concerned with the front lines no so far off, let alone the crazy risks in pulling off a morale-boosting speech in the midst of the most contested piece of the Mojave Wasteland.
And she didn’t need to directly hear their gripes, let alone look at them. She sensed it, and she shared their concerned more intuitively than any politician. Indeed, she’d rather toss her uniform off, don her combat gear and rejoin her group of Rangers in hunting down
BullyWhen I was a minor, I was heavily bullied throughout my public schooling life. That is preschool all the way to senior year. I was bullied for various reasons; for being too smart, for having crooked teeth, for liking cats, for "being too manly", for being friendly... and it destroyed me. I have attempted suicide twice in my life and have permanently been inflicted with depression. I also have an extremely hard time socializing and standing up for myself, because any time I had tried to do so in my past, only made things worse for me...Bully3 years ago in Letters More Like This

It made me for the longest time a walking zombie, unable to express myself and my desires, because I had lost hope.

“What did you just say!?” I gasped, unable to believe my ears.
“I said that if you’ll calm down and come with me, I might know how to turn you back.” James replied. I quickly climbed off my bike and ran over to him, grabbing him by the shoulders. I glared into his eyes with so much intensity that he must have been intimidated, because he started to back up a little.
“James…I swear to God above that if you’re lying to me, I will never forgive you.” I growled.
“I’m not lying Chase! I mean it!” James said. “If you come with me, I might be able to help. I can’t make any promises…but we gotta try right?” I felt my knees going weak and I almost collapsed from the delight I was feeling. It was as if all the depression and fear I had felt was being lifted from my aching shoulders.

Weedle ReportWeedle (the Hairy Bug Pokémon) is a common Bug/Poison-type Pokémon found among the forested regions of the Kanto, Johto, Unova and Kalos regions as well as the Pattern Bush of the Sevii Islands and the Hoenn and Sinnoh regions on rare occasions. Though they might not be much more than bird fodder to some, Weedle are dangerous creatures that can give early trainers a nasty taste of the toll that Poisoning can take on the physical well-being of a Pokémon in a short period of time. If you're a Bug Catcher, then grabbing one of these bugs should be elementary; as long as you keep away from their poisonous stingers, you shouldn't have too much trouble acquiring one for your collection!Weedle Report4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Like similar insects, Weedle live relatively simple lives within their natural habitats, devouring fallen leaves on the forest floor as their sole source of sustenance. While Caterpie are not especially picky about the kinds of leaves they eat, Weedle are quite picky and will only eat the leave
Kabuto ReportKabuto (the Shellfish Pokémon) is a relatively rare Rock/Water-type Pokémon found among shallow coastal oceans and beaches worldwide. Though perhaps not among the most frightening of beasts from afar, Kabuto are fierce creatures that can easily take and deliver physical damage in battle without much trouble. They might not be the best at conventional battling, but considering these beasts haven't changed a lot in 300 million years, it's probably better not to fix something if it isn't broke!Kabuto Report5 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Kabuto and Kabutops represent an interesting case of development and survival that has yet to be fully understood by modern science. While Kabuto represent a distinct type of horseshoe crab, Kabutops are strikingly different in that they share traits from both eurypterids and horseshoe crabs both physiologically and behaviorally. It is hypothesized that Kabutops may actually be part of the class Chasmataspidida (as their body form bears a striking similarity to that of Chasmataspis lauren

Father Reed is a fine, imposing man, with his black robes and dark flashing eyes and thunderous Commandments of God. "Christ died for our sins," is the popular refrain these days. Not my sins, I am sure. I have not yet confessed them, so how could He know? Christ was too pure, too good and humble to do as I have done. To touch himself under the blankets after his sisters have fallen asleep. He knew nothing of the want in the tips of his fingers, the heat lingering in the pulse at his throat. He has never wanted what I wanted. I have never confessed, but I can truly be silent no longer. I must do something, or else I am sure I will go
Kingler ReportKingler (the Pincer Pokémon) is a relatively uncommon Water-type Pokémon found within bodies of freshwater and saltwater around the world. Menacing to behold and incredibly dangerous in physical combat, Kingler are powerful creatures that easily beat all other Water-types in terms of sheer physical strength. They might not be the easiest creatures to battle with effectively, but you can definitely bet that any opponent will think twice about getting close enough to be on the receiving end of a devastating Crabhammer attack!Kingler Report4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Like Krabby, Kingler live simple lives inside burrows dug within sandy beaches or silty river banks, feeding off of small insects and microorganisms within nearby bodies of water. In stark contrast to their pre-evolved form, though, Kingler possess one normal-sized pincer and one that has grown way out of proportion. The oversized pincer appears to have arisen as a means of communication between members of this species; because Kingler become somewhat nerv

Use extreme caution when dealing with these creatures and do your best not to get too close to them, as it'll only take a single touch to send you and any nearby objects flying into the nearest country!Electrode Report4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
The origins of both Voltorb and Electrode have been shrouded in mystery for some time, but recent revelations have revealed that these creatures did in fact serve a purpose for some time despite not being created on purpose.

Venonat ReportVenonat (the Insect Pokémon) is a relatively common Bug/Poison-type Pokémon found among grassy fields and forests within the Kanto, Johto and Unova regions as well as parts of the Sevii Islands, the Sinnoh region on rare occasions, and possibly the Hoenn region. Though perhaps not powerful enough to be of much use in battle, Venonat are deceptive insects that can certainly make life difficult for younger trainers with their powerful Psychic-type attacks and toxic powders. They may not have much to show for their actual type until later in life, but at the very least, these little creatures can be a big help when stuck in the middle of nowhere with no way to see anything due to fog or darkness; just let these critters lead the way and you'll get home safely in no time!Venonat Report5 years ago in Profiles More Like This

Though cute in appearance and seemingly weak at first glance, Totodile are powerful reptiles that can easily rip apart opponents of nearly any size with their sharp teeth and tremendous jaw strength. These little critters might be playful, but anyone wishing to train one had better be careful to keep them on a tight leash; they might not wish to hurt anyone, but it can certainly be said that these creatures simply don't know their own strength!Totodile Report4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
As with its evolutions, Totodile are crocodilians that share many commonalities with both crocodiles and alligators, particularly in regards to their skull structures (which is similar to those of alligators) and the arrangement of their teeth (which is similar to those of crocodiles). From a young age, Totodile are designed to hunt on their own and are surprisingly adept at hunting small insects and rode
