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.
Fortitude And Faith“Nileas!” Ausrius bellowed again. He could find no trace of his fellow, even with his enhanced senses, and helmet overlay. No trace of the daemon either.Fortitude And Faith2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
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 Murderous FriendsDraw your swords you murderous men.My Murderous Friends3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
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

Swampert ReportSwampert (the Mud Fish Pokemon) is an exceptionally rare Water/Ground-type Pokemon 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 Report4 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 well in
Tropius ReportTropius (the Fruit Pokemon) is a rare Grass/Flying-type Pokemon found among tropical jungles and forested areas within the Hoenn and Unova regions. Though perhaps not as strong as other Grass-type Pokemon 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 Report4 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 it is a common belief th
Volcarona ReportVolcarona (the Sun Pokemon) is an exceptionally rare Bug/Fire-type Pokemon found in a variety of environments across the world, including jungles, mountains, volcanoes and even deserts. Unbelievably powerful and dangerous to be around, Volcarona are magnificent creatures that can easily incinerate the competition with their dazzling skills and unique attacks. Make sure to go on a fully-physical assault when facing one of these titanic insects, because if you can't target their biggest weaknesses, you'll probably end up drowning in a sea of fire before the day is through!Volcarona Report3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Since the exoskeletons of almost all Bug-types are unable to sustain their structure in the presence of high temperatures, Bug-types in general are genetically unfit to possess the combustion organs present in most Fire-types; Larvesta and their evolved form, Volcarona, are the exception to this rule. Not only are the carapaces of both creatures chemically reinforced to resist burning t

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.
The female however looked at her hand,and saw a JERICHO MK IV claw.She saw it, she was in the Shinagami a
Onix ReportOnix (the Rock Snake Pokemon) is a relatively common Rock/Ground-type Pokemon found among dark caverns within the Kanto, Johto, Sinnoh, Unova and Kalos regions. 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 squeezed put on you by a beast longer than four NBA players stacked on top of each other!Onix Report4 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 dependent upon their age
Alakazam ReportAlakazam (the Psi Pokemon) is an exceptionally rare Psychic-type Pokemon found among grassy fields, meadows and caves within the Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh and Kalos regions as well as the Unova region on rare occasions. Amazingly powerful and practically unrivaled among Psychic-types for their abilities, Alakazam are devastating creatures that can easily tear apart the opposition with their immense psychic powers and incredible intelligence. Unless you have access to some strong special defenses and a lot of physical strength, you had best be prepared for one heck of a fight every time these creatures enter the battlefield; get in their way, and you'll certainly find out just how dangerous things can be when you have to go one-on-one with a true master of the extrasensory!Alakazam Report4 years ago in Profiles More Like This

Hydreigon ReportHydreigon (the Brutal Pokemon) is an exceptionally rare Dark/Dragon-type Pokemon found among mountainous terrain within the Unova and Kalos regions. Brutally destructive and monstrously evil, Hydreigon are exceptional beasts that represent one of the most extreme examples of evolutionary mutation known in the entire world. For Dark and Dragon-type experts alike, this is one beast that can definitely be relied on; nothing says power more than a monster that can literally multiply the fear factor in any battle by three every time!Hydreigon Report3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
The genetic instability of the Deino family effectively comes to a head (literally) when Zweilous finally evolve. Like a butterfly emerging from a cocoon, this final mutation produces an entirely new creature and is marked by the addition of a third head, which acts as the prime head of Hydreigon and possesses advanced extrasensory powers, in turn granting Hydreigon fairly extensive special powers (as well as the ability to naturally
Tentacruel ReportTentacruel (the Jellyfish Pokemon) is an uncommon Water/Poison-type Pokemon found among warm, shallow seas across the world. Feared for their impressive hunting abilities and nearly inescapable toxic tentacles, Tentacruel are exceptionally brutal beasts that will gladly poison, strangle and devour nearby life-forms even if they are not that hungry. These massive jellyfish might not be the greatest fighters in physical brawls, but if you're not careful about staying far away from them, you'll find out too late exactly why these beasts are known as the "Gangster of the Sea"!Tentacruel Report3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Although Tentacruel share many of the same characteristics with jellyfish that Tentacool share, they are far different in that they do not aimlessly drift among warm ocean currents and are in fact very active hunters. Although Tentacruel usually only reveal about 14 or so tentacles in and outside of battle, they actually have approximately 80 tentacles in total; the majority are only
Golem ReportGolem (the Megaton Pokemon) is a rare Rock/Ground-type Pokemon found among mountainous terrain, volcanic craters and caverns within the Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh and Kalos regions as well as parts of the Unova region on rare occasions. Despite sharing with their pre-evolved forms an inability to take damage from special attacks very well, Golem are monstrous juggernauts that can easily crush anything that dares to stand against them with their rugged bodies and imposing physical defenses. They may not have much to offer in the way of personality, but considering even dynamite won't crack their shell, it's unlikely that you'll be able to find many opponents that can easily best them with physical strikes alone!Golem Report4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Graveler are normally unable to evolve and are considered the adult form of their species, but when exposed to certain energy fields (such as those found within training devices), the organic components within their bodies completely take over and mutate t
Beheeyem ReportBeheeyem (the Cerebral Pokemon) is a relatively rare Psychic-type Pokemon found within abandoned and haunted buildings within the Unova region and across much of the U.S.A., though they are spread somewhat thin. Though there is relatively little known about these creatures, it cannot be denied that Beheeyem are dangerous creatures to be around; regardless of whether you specialize in Psychic-types or not, this is one species that will definitely throw a monkey wrench into your battle plans with their amazing psychic abilities and devastating selection of moves. They might not have the strongest psychic powers (though they are still stronger than most Psychic-types) out of all creatures on Earth, but that matters very little when dealing with one of these beasts; if anything else, you should be thankful if you can even remember encountering them at all!Beheeyem Report3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Neither Elgyem nor Beheeyem had ever been observed in the wild until about 50 years ago, when they suddenly appeared in ext
Beldum ReportBeldum (the Iron Ball Pokemon) is a rare Steel/Psychic-type Pokemon found among mountainous terrain and forested areas within the Hoenn and Unova regions 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 Report4 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 metallic hydrogen kept in a liquid state by generating massive internal fields that prevent the material from solidifying. As it turns out, every single cell
Jellicent ReportJellicent (the Floating Pokemon) is a relatively rare Water/Ghost-type Pokemon found among the deepest parts of the Atlantic Ocean and along some shorelines within the Unova region. Feared by sailors world-wide for their cruel and unforgiving natures, Jellicent are seemingly placid creatures that can easily become a threat with the slightest bit of provocation. These deep-sea creatures take their hunting and nesting grounds very seriously, so you would be wise not to disturb them; no ship has ever escaped the clutches of these sea monsters, so don't think that you will have much more luck going up against them alone!Jellicent Report3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Frillish and Jellicent are unique among Ghost-types in that their genders are clearly visible to anyone with functioning eyes. The most logical explanation behind this phenomenon is that different body colors and body patterns make it easier for members of these species to identify one another within the dark depths of the ocean floor; anat
Scraggy ReportScraggy (the Shedding Pokemon) is an uncommon Dark/Fighting Pokemon found among grassy fields within the Unova and Kalos regions. Though they might appear more silly-looking than truly threatening, Scraggy are formidable creatures that can easily play both offensively and defensively with their elastic skin and thick skulls. Even if you think that you can easily match what they are capable of, don't underestimate these odd little reptiles, especially because all it takes is a single moment of eye contact to send these beasts into a full-on Headbutt rampage!Scraggy Report3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Scraggy and Scrafty are completely unique among Fighting-types in that their skin actually acts as a natural barrier against psychic energy; as such, they are naturally classified as Dark-types, particularly because its dampening properties are strong enough to significantly increase the overall effectiveness of their Dark-type attacks even if their target in battle is not a Ghost or Psychic-type Pokemon. More importantly, though
Poochyena ReportPoochyena (the Bite Pokemon) is a relatively uncommon Dark-type Pokemon found among grassy fields and forests within the Hoenn and Kalos regions as well as the Sinnoh and Unova regions on rare occasions. Though they might be small in size and seemingly weak, Poochyena are tenacious beasts that will gladly pursue prey and opponents alike to the ends of the Earth if needed. Just don't expect them to be able to fight back with a lot of force; they may want to take a bit out of anything that moves, but that doesn't mean that they'll always hold their ground when their target decides to strike back!Poochyena Report3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Poochyena are technically considered to be omnivores as they will gladly eat both meat and berries for sustenance, but what makes them noteworthy among canine Pokemon are the disproportionally-large fangs on their lower jaw. These fangs are designed primarily for biting prey and opponents alike with tremendous force and enable Poochyena to punch through thin armo
