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.

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.
Leeds wipes his face.

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.

"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.

My luck has always been fickle. Like so many other Freedom Fighters, the Fire Nation destroyed my town when I was young. I lived, but the guilt of running while my parents burned was enough to make me wish I hadn't.
And then, as if to make up for that whole mess, chance sent me Jet. I was six, he was nine, and I would have done anything for him. Fighting for him came naturally; avenging my village was just a plus.
I remember he held me close as we hid from the soldiers. I was crying with pain and fear, and he hugged me tighter and whispered, "Do you want to know what our group motto is? Well, what I say it is." I looked at him, my eyes wide, and he wiped the tears away and murmured, "As long as we breathe, we hope."
To me, it sounded like the wisest thing ever said. I still think that.
I think I was ten when I met Longshot, since that would make him thirteen, and that sounds about right. His village was in ruins, and I thought no one had been left alive, until I heard a thwoc

Your WingsCan you hear all the cries?Your Wings5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Can you see the pain?
Does any of it reach you?
Through the lies and fingers pointing blame?
I opened my eyes
And saw a world full of fear
How can you watch from on high
As I lose all that I hold dear?
I'm down here on my knees
Begging you to hear my prayers
Just need to know that you're still there
Listen as I call your name so please tell me
Do you see my tears?
All I've ever wanted was your love
And to rest under the shelter of you wings
Blood stained pages full of words old as you
Cities falling and children crying
Tell me is this what you wanted us to do?
Are you watching as all mankind is dying?
Will you open your eyes?
Will you see all the pain?
Will you just stand by?
Are all the prayers in vain?
Please, I'm begging you
Take a moment and look
See those of us who still need you
Can you hear me?
I'm calling out to you
Can you see me?
I'm still right here
And I still want to rest
Beneath the shelter of your wings

Onix ReportOnix (the Rock Snake Pokémon) is a relatively common Rock/Ground-type Pokémon found among dark caverns within the Kanto, Johto, Sinnoh, Unova and Kalos regions as well as the Hoenn region on rare occasions. Titanic in size and difficult to even put a dent in, Onix are massive monsters that can easily outlast most opponents with their rugged hides and tremendous defenses. They certainly might not be able to deal much in the way of damage, but if you don't have any special attacks to back you up, it's unlikely that a battle against one of these snakes is going to be short; just make sure not to get too close to them, or you'll find out just how painful it can be to have the squeeze put on you by a beast longer than four NBA players stacked on top of each other!Onix Report6 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Onix are comprised mostly of rock and have very little organic tissue in their bodies; in fact, the only portion that does have organic tissue is their head. As such, the actual appearance of these creatures is highly de

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
Swampert ReportSwampert (the Mud Fish Pokémon) is an exceptionally rare Water/Ground-type Pokémon found among beaches and other landforms close to the ocean within the Hoenn region. With water-tight skin that can bake in the hot sun for hours on end and the physical strength needed to crush almost any opposition, Swampert are dangerous fighters that can bring equally impressive assaults of Water and Ground-type moves in a flash. If you think that a simple Grass-type assault is going to do you much good against them, think again; they might not be able to take the force of nature very well, but with something as strong as they are in battle, the chances of getting flattened by their Hammer Arm attack are too much to handle!Swampert Report5 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Swampert are unique among their family in that they combine and enhance the best of their previous evolutions together; while they possess the strong footing and strength of Marshtomp, they also possess the great swimming abilities of Mudkip and can thus attack perfectly
Beldum ReportBeldum (the Iron Ball Pokémon) is a rare Steel/Psychic-type Pokémon found among mountainous terrain and forested areas within the Unova region as well as the Sinnoh region on rare occasions. Though fairly useless in combat alone, Beldum are fascinating organisms whose very existence pushes the boundary between machine and life. They might not be able to do much else other than recklessly throw themselves at the opposition, but once they do manage to evolve, there won't be much stopping these little beasts from tearing apart everything that gets in their way!Beldum Report6 years ago in Profiles More Like This
To classify Beldum and their evolutions as either machines or animals would be incorrect by any standard, as they effectively occupy an area completely in the middle. Instead of blood, the circulatory systems of Beldum pump a highly-magnetized slurry of iron and rare earth elements, with an overall composition similar to that of man-made Neodymium magnets, kept in a liquid state by generating massive internal energy field
Tropius ReportTropius (the Fruit Pokémon) is a relatively rare Grass/Flying-type Pokémon found among tropical jungles and forested areas within the Hoenn and Unova regions. Though perhaps not as strong as other Grass-type Pokémon or as agile as some might like, Tropius are fascinating beasts that can easily pummel opponents on the ground and in the sky with their diverse array of Normal, Grass and Flying-type moves. Of course, if you're just looking for a quick, nutritious snack, you still might want to consider having one of these creatures; after all, if a beast loves a certain fruit so much that it actually begins to grow it, who wouldn't want to try it?Tropius Report6 years ago in Profiles More Like This
It is believed that Tropius were once little more than simple herbivores that grazed on low-lying grasses and similar plants; unfortunately, it is difficult to tell whether they would have been mammalian or reptilian at this point in time, as almost all of their animalistic traits have been removed in their present form. Although i
Shuckle ReportShuckle (the Mold Pokémon) is a rare Bug/Rock-type Pokémon found among rocky and some forested areas within the Kanto, Johto, Sinnoh, Unova and Kalos regions. Though perhaps utterly pointless from an offensive standpoint, Shuckle are amazingly resilient beasts that can easily outlast even the fiercest of assaults without any trouble whatsoever. They might not be able to do much other than sit in one place and hope not to die, but considering how durable their shells are, that's a fate that few of these beasts will ever have to worry about facing under any circumstance!Shuckle Report5 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Although Shuckle are generally classified as Bug-types, they technically are not insects at all but in fact a highly-advanced type of endoltih and have more in common with mold and some gastropods than any other type of organism. The only real reason they are not classified as Grass-types is because they have no natural plant-like abilities and are generally more faunal than they are floral. Because their soft
Armaldo ReportArmaldo (the Plate Pokémon) is an exceptionally rare Rock/Bug-type Pokémon found near warm coastal seas across the world, though only in extremely limited numbers. While they might not be as well-adapted to the water as their pre-evolved form, Armaldo are vicious beasts that can easily tear apart weaker opponents with their massive bodies and powerful claws. They certainly might not be the most mobile of creatures, but after getting hit by one of their rocket-like punches, that likely won't be your biggest concern in battle anymore!Armaldo Report6 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Anorith and Armaldo are normally extinct and impossible to see in the wild today, but thanks to the wonders of science, these beasts have been brought back to the modern world through Claw Fossils. In stark contrast to other fossil Pokémon, it can be said with certainty not only how long these species were around but, more importantly, that they are likely the oldest fossil Pokémon to ever be resurrected. The bizarre body plan of these c
Flamethrower ReportMove Name: FlamethrowerFlamethrower Report4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Battle Classification: Special Attack
Total number of affected targets: 1
Range: 1 adjacent target other than user
Direct contact needed to initiate attack: No
Base Power: 90
Accuracy Rate: 100%
PP: 15 (maximum 24)
Considered to be among the bread-and-butter of most Fire-type specialists, the Flamethrower attack is a powerful move among Fire-types that enables them to utilize their natural fire-producing abilities to scorch opponents in battle. The Flamethrower attack itself involves striking the opposition with a potent stream of continuous fire to inflict damage. It might not take much more energy to deliver than a basic Ember attack, but trainers and Pokémon alike in battle will quickly find out that this move more than brings plenty of punishment to anyone unlucky enough to get in its way.
Nearly all Fire-type Pokémon are assigned as such because they possess combustion organs of some sort that allow them to produce brilliant external fl
Cradily ReportCradily (the Barnacle Pokémon) is an exceptionally rare Rock/Grass-type Pokémon found among shallow marine environments worldwide, though only in exceptionally limited numbers. Though perhaps not the most gifted of beasts in terms of sheer offense, Cradily are powerful creatures that can more than give offensive fighters a bit of trouble in battle. Granted, they might be relatively slow and have little to offer in the way of direct damage, but after you get struck by these beasts' Gastro Acid technique, it's unlikely that you'll be able to wash it off for some time!Cradily Report6 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Lileep and Cradily were once completely extinct in the wild and have only come into the modern world as a result of the discovery of Root Fossils, which are very rare to find but contain enough preserved genetic material to make genetic cloning of Lileep possible. Both of these beasts are believed to be distinct types of crinoids that likely died off about 100 million years ago (though Cradily also share a weak bu
