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

Louis stood on a lab table inside the inner lab room, his shades off, holding a medicine ball before him. And he was less than three inches tall. A BT sensor panel buzzed next to him, and he glared at it. If he had a gun he'd shoot it, right in the power cord.
Louis tapped the microphone attached to his earpiece, talking to Rachel who hovered over him like a giant from Gulliver's Travels. "Okay, so I can shrink things as long as I can hold them or touch them while I shrink."
Rachel nodded and glanced at the readings on the BT screen, marking things down on her clipboard. "According to the readings you can extend the electrical field of your body to anything you can physically touch. We'll have to try something organic next. Then we'

Advice for earthbound oc's/Altered charactersI'm starting to get sick of seeing terrible EarthBound "original characters"/mary-sue's/gary-stu's on a daily basis.

So this is gonna be a few simple steps of advice to make a good EarthBound original character.
1) Past and backstory
You don't need a dramatic past or dark backstory to make your character interesting. Say, if your character saw their parents die in front of him/her, it's only okay if the character gets over it and doesn't act like a complete emo Final Fantasy character.
It's fine if you make your character witness a death, but don't make them turn into an emo for the rest of their life over it. They can remorse over it of course, but when they constantly are depressed over it, that's just a poor attempt to copy Lucas's back story.
2) PSI powers
I can't emphasize this enough. It's all well and good to have PSI powe

The excitement of the theater, the world in the pages, the scripted word--these used to thrill Bea.
She remembered dressing up as a child, in her mother's old prom dresses or her collection of costumes from birthdays and Christmases. The stuffed animals were her audience as she recited stories out loud. Sometimes she would shout her lines, just to make the house feel less empty. (The babysitter didn't seem to care.)
When her own stories bored her, she turned to her movies and would gather her favorite toys to hear her commentary while she watched. She would stand in front of the television and sing the songs she knew. Sometimes she would dance, pretending to waltz in the arms of her prince, tripping over her long skirt.
She dreamed of those lives, the story lives. On rainy days, she would sit at the window and dream up stories: The meeting in the rain with her one true love,

Amongst the ashes, swirling from the darkness of the pit,
Emerged a hand, dragging a battered body across the rocks.
Blood leaked from the wounds so callously self-inflicted,
And teeth ground with a focused determination and seething anger.
It cared not for the warm rubies - staining the jagged rocks,
It cared not for the sensation of pain...
All that it remembered was a dream, An obsession -
One that drove it ever higher; ignoring all else!
Eventually it emerged from this shadowy hole, this dreary depth,
And in that moment, it learned of the truth.
For this creature, denied sunlight and warmth -

What makes us love such a man as he?
Why do our hearts flutter at his smile?
How our knees waver at his voice!
See what his hazel stare can do!
Maybe it is because there is none other like him
For he is the perfect man, a shining star
Such a jewel, rare treasure indeed
He can easily steal our hearts and mystify our minds
How we swoon at him in billowing capes
Deafening gasps at dramatic performances
So noble when clutching a sword
And heroic appearing through a storm
O, nothing can break our undying devotion!
Dedicating ourselves is our number one notion!
