That person that we sometimes see
The one who always hides their pain
The one who took two seats on the plane
The one that went and lost their mind
The one that always falls behind
The one who threw up during class
The one that always gets picked last
The one who went and tripped and fell
The one who never seems to be well
The one everybody reprimands
The one nobody understands
We've all had our moments
Don't deny what is true
We all know embarrassment
is nothing new
And you are wondering
What's expected from you....
Give compassion, my friend...
....It's all you can do.

Andy knew he was a relic. He used to violently object when it was suggested that he was past his prime, but after a while the reality was too apparent to ignore.
It had been years, maybe decades since he'd been able to find factory fresh parts. Most of his equipment now was made up from bits scavenged and scrounged, then adapted as best he could.
Sometimes there would be an accident in the construction projects, and if he was lucky, and quick, he could tear off whole limbs or liberate power cells before the maintenance crews arrived to chase him away.
Most of these parts were too new, but some could be modified to fit, the rest traded away.
Andy found himself wandering through a section of the city that he remembered as it had been, vibrant and alive, but as he trudged down the streets and through the alleys, he found the roads in disrepair and littered with rubble and refuse. The once tall and gleaming buildings that reached skyward were now bent and broken, some leaning across the st

Main Turret Artillery
Tachyon Artillery: Tachyons are slowed down below light speed by a gravitation trap with rotating polarization (changing direction), that is the reason why the tachyon gun is U- shaped, and fires two pulses per shot. The tachyons want to get back over light speed, and accelerate after leaving the gun, when they hit matter they lose their strange energy and transform the matter into antimatter, and break through the lightbarrier. The destructive effect is because of this caused by the antimatter, so the usage of tachyon guns in atmosphere is limited to zero, also in space the range is limited due to the exhaust of ships engines and interstellar gas, this causes the red color of the pulses.
Effective range: mostly used in mid distance combat (100 000km), maximal effective shot was one Ls (lightsecond = 300 000km), but had limited effectivity, due to the high loss of tachyons

My Naga Daughter part 6I ran out into the woods as we began our game or Ruby’s final exam so to speak. As waited, I spent ten minutes finding a hiding spot until I found a good one. I had a feeling she was going to get me eventually; she has seen literally ALL of my tricks and I was no ninja by any means. So I decided to use the “run-hide-run” tactic that has proven to be the most effective. What the “run-hide-run” tactic was is exactly what it sounds like: I would run quietly to find a hiding spot, hide until Ruby passes me and then run again to repeat the process. Usually it worked until recently when I have gotten myself careless, and it seems that she has acquired something similar to Spider Man’s “spider sense”. I guess it’s part of her genetics, check that, I KNOW it’s part of her genetics, maybe that was how Emily, her so-called “mother”, found me so easily when we first met.

"Shall I part my hair behind? Do I dare to eat a peach?
I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.
I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.
I do not think that they will sing to me.
I have seen them riding seaward on the waves
Combing the white hairs of the waves blown back
When the wind blows the water white and black
We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown."

It turned out Eo knew many shortcuts to fixing Lily. The sheer amount of knowledge she had on the subject filled the entire time they put Lily back together. There was little about robotics Eo did not know some improvement to. She rewrote Lily's damaged data-storage procedure in less than ten minutes, organizing it in a radically different, yet much more intuitive way than Mira had even thought possible.
Mira had been awake again for nearly twenty hours. She leaned back from her desk and stretched. Eo came back from the kitchen carrying the next half of the reheated delivery pizza. (Delivery because, for some unexplained reason, Eo did not know how to cook.) When she saw Mira agape in the middle of a yawn, Eo set the pizza down and took her by the hand.

A taurian octopus creature with a human-like upper torso was still- the chlaena's eyes with ovaloid pupils were inscrutable and she did not move, her tentacles splayed out around her, anchoring her to the stone seabed. Her bulbous octopus half slowly bobbed up and down behind, while she rested back on it comfortably. Though it was difficult to tell for anyone inexperienced with her species' behavior, she was sleeping- not only this, but currently in the act of dreaming, a normally extremely strange occurrence and even a sign of insanity for many others of her kind.
Indeed, she was one of the few of her kind, either blessed or cursed, but in her opinion gifted by the Queen of Darkness with the ability to see things others could not. Maybe the future or the past, just for an instant. So

One of the men started a campfire and began to roast some small animal they had caught. Soon the scent of roasting meat rose into the air. The man cooking the meat was large; his ears were studded, and other than the top of his head, which was utterly bald, he looked unshaven. He banged two pots together to get his comrades attention and called out, Gather round the campfire boys and girls, grab a leg to munch, this things got plenty to spare.

During the final hours of the Annual American Engineers Association Symposium, the grounds outside the convention center teemed with androids. Most were under four feet tall, with a harmless animal quality to them; fur, face and all. The symposium did not permit out-of-the-box factory androids on the convention floor for multiple reasons--though disappointingly, what they had to offer this year lacked any significant improvements.
The sky brooded, matching the mood that hung over the entire weekend. Mira wanted to return to work; it would be a welcoming distraction from an unproductive trip. Castletown was a veritable holy land of android engineering (at least for this hemisphere), but her grail was still missing.
