He was not a psyker.
He had been taken by the Enforcers more than once for testing when they performed their irregular sweeps, or when word of his "talents" had reached them and they checked for latent emergence. But they had found him to be well within acceptable limits, lacking any obvious psychic taint.
This had not noticeably interfered with his income. In fact, if anything, it had built upon his reputation. No one could be seen to be visiting an unlicensed psyker, after all. But one could visit someone officially sanctioned as definitely not a psyker... and whisper behind one's hand that his powers were clearly so great that he could deceive even the penetrating talents of the Emperor's Witch Finders!
He sat in the gloom of his "consulting room" and drummed his fingers impatiently on the table. He was expecting a client and it helped the atmosphere for them to find him deep in meditation in the dark room, its rich furnishings

"In Defence of Humanity,
The Emperor stands alone.
His own armies have turned traitor,
His enemies plot his demise.
You must stand against them,
and purge all that would oppose his will."
-The Final Word-
"Do not doubt his will, for it shall bring peace.
Do not question his order, for his might shall be your undoing.
Purge the traitors of Creation, those that do not follow him.
For his shall always be the Final Word.
-You must Protect.-
"The Emperor does not protect.
For what use is an Angel without his blade?
Thus, you must devote thy mind, body and soul to be his blade.
With your blade he strikes at the enemy.
With your gun he shall rend their flesh.
Through thy sacred blade he shall purge the galaxy of those
who would strike at his brethren."
-Thy Vows Renewed-
"Thou art the weapon of the Emperor.
In thy craft you cannot falter.
Lest you wish to turn to darkness,
be blasted and broken a thousand times,
remain true to his divine will.
It is with these words t

Spying on a younger sibling is perfectly commendable in the eyes of an older sibling. Just ask Buffy and Dean. Pre-series for SPN; Post-series for BtVS. One-shot.

Buffy told herself she wouldn't do it. After all, her little sister was not so little anymore. Dawn was a grown woman. She'd paid bills, helped save the world, learned to use weaponry. And this? This was nothingthis was Dawnie leaving for early admissions and orientation a couple months in advance because, as a grown woman, she could choose to do so. And Buffy had even agreed it was a good idea, called it a "mini vaca" before classes started.
So, why was it that Buffy currently found herself in Palo Alto? Because, the rules of the universe dictated that, as the eldest, it was her job to spy on her younger sibling. Those same rules also dictated that if Dawn could find trouble, she would.

Dean's head jerked from the screen of the laptop, alert. He turned and saw nothing in the crummy motel room. Sam was out for a supply run, hopefully getting Dean's pie. Shrugging, he went back to watching BustyAsianBeauties.com.
Irritated, Dean shut the laptop and looked around the room. It was empty. Nothing under the bed, in the closet, bathroom...
"Okay, seriously, what the hell is going on here?" Dean demanded. Instead of getting a verbal answer, Cas appeared 3 inches away from his face. Dean yelped and fell back on the floor, staring dizzily at the ceiling.

I stare at the box before me, anticipation flowing through my veins, making it a challenge to even stand still. I’ve been waiting for this package for nearly two months; and now, the night before Halloween, it finally arrives. Seriously, I’d been wondering whether it’d get here on time for the costume party tomorrow, or if I’d just spent $300 on something that I wouldn’t be able to wear for another year. I’ve really wanted to go to this costume party, partly because everyone I know is going to be there, and secondly because there is a big costume competition; whoever has the best costume receives $500! That’s not something to be ignored. The party is being held at some rich girl’s house on the opposite side of town; I don’t really know her myself, but she’s inviting everyone who goes to the same college as her. That includes me, as well as about 800 or so other people if they choose to. However, now the costume’s here, I

Shepard walks away from the three paths that were opened up for him and towards a window, "I refuse," Shepard said, "I believe that the army that I have constructed will defeat your Reapers."
"They cannot," the Catalysts said as he stood beside Shepard, "you are a fool for believing in your army."
"No you are the fool," Shepard said, "I helped unite the Quarians and the Geth. They had been fighting for three hundred years, but with my help I stopped the war and united them together."
"That peace will not last," the Catalyst said, "eventually a Quarian will kill a geth and the war will be restarted. If you destroy all synthetic life the peace will last."
"No, I won't destroy all synthetic life. It won't bring peace between the Quarians and the Geth it will just destroy the Geth and that is not peace. I believe the Quarians and Geth can live in harmony," Shepard said, "perhaps a Quarian like Xen may try to dissect a geth but if

Her eyes wide and weeping
To no one really at all.
Kneeling on grey-green knees
Old pains blossoming up again
She looks into the sky
Swirling emptiness, shades of blue
Empty but beautiful
Just like her.
Her arms wrap around someone not really there
Fingers winding around invisible hair
Grasping for non existent flesh
Wishing desperately for some sort of fulfillment.

It was where she was born and lived happily for sixteen years. It was the planet that was ravaged on the day she lost everyone and everything she held dear. It was the place she was when she found her path in life.
It was where she drew her resolve from in the memories and the horrible scars etched on her soul left from that terrible day the slavers came. And until Therum, it was where she drew on her only happy memories for wisdom and love.
Now it would be her final resting place for eternity.

2196: The Year of the Historical Vid
By Joan Calder
MILGROM, BEKENSTIEN - 2196 will be the "Year of the Historical Vid," claims vid critic Roger Eberron of Milgrom Morning News. A dozen vids based on historical events will be released next year as studios across the galaxy rush to cash in on the tenth anniversary of the Battle of Earth.
The year kicks off with the action/drama vid "based on true events", Archangel: Omega Nights staring Anton Vilius as the mysterious vigilante that shook up the Omega underworld and managed to unify the station's worst merc bands against him. Michael Betchel of Miraflor Studios, confident of the new franchise, personally signed the Turian action star to a multi-vid contract for an as of yet unspecified amount. At least two other movies Archangel: Illum Dawn and Archangel: Citadel Days were filmed concurrently with Omega Nights to be rele
Warhammer 40K - Sex 'Em UpA mighty black boot crunched down upon a fallen guardsmen's chest. Bohman, the leader of the Chaos Marines known as the Radiant Slaves, a Slaanesh dedicated traitor legion, stood before his followers. He was a twisted leader, who gathered followers and slaves alike with promises of pleasure and pain in exchange for service. Leading the army onward, the Chaos Marines plowed forth, tearing down both man and machine... anything that stood before them. But hope was not lost, for Imperial Guard sent troop after troop to defend their homeworld against this disastrous raid.Warhammer 40K - Sex 'Em Up6 years ago in Humor More Like This

"Chase, it's time to get up!" I rolled over, not wanting to get out of bed. I was so comfortable…in fact, I had slept better tonight than I had slept in a long time. For so many nights now I had slept so uncomfortably…and I would only sleep for maybe 3 or 4 hours at a time. Part of the reason was because my bed was a bit too small for me. The twin size bed was fine when I was still 6 feet tall…but now I'm 6 feet and 5 inches and athletically built! My feet dangle off of the sides and I can never get comfortable. Then there are the nightmares and thoughts that fill my head. The thoughts of going to school…and the people that were there. It seems odd, right? I mean, why would someone like me be afraid of my peers at high school. The fact wasn't that I wasn't really afraid of them…they were afraid of me.

"Food sounds nice. Tell me when we get there " Says Camelia collapsing in the middle of the dirt road.
