Death of Jorge
I stood motionless.
The barrel of my MA37 smoked, leaving tendrils of fading wisps in the air.
And I stood, barely making a sound.
Ever since the last of the Covenant forces in the hangar bay of the Covenant Corvette, The Ardent Prayer, everything's gone too quiet.
I barely made any sound, barely made any movement...
Nor I barely breathed...
I both watched my motion-tracker and the shadows of each and every corner that filled this hangar bay.
And I could feel the sweat crawling down my brow, and each and every part of my body has gone intense.
Because there is this one thing that always clicked in my mind:
I have a bad feeling about this.
But to my relief and surprise, I can hear my COM emitting some static before Jorge's voice ringed out, "Six, meet me back at the Pelican."
It was my only response.
I made one last sweep across the area and checking the motion-tracker before I can confirm myself that its all clear.
With that out of the way, I made my w

He had no idea how long he was down there. Minutes, hours, days, weeks, none of that seemed to matter. What did matter, on the other hand, was that Avery was still alive. A bit beaten and bruised, perhaps, but still alive. That was an encouraging thought. With that out of the way, he turned his mind towards his next issue: getting rid of those rocks pinning him to the cold metallic ground.
"Stupid piece of " he grunted, tugging himself underneath. He leaned his head down and closed his eyes.
He did have some good news. Uncomfortable as his position might be, nothing seemed to be broken, his legs in particular in spite of the gruesome appearance of his current predicament. The mess of earth, stone, and metal managed to only pin his lower half from the chest down, meaning his arms were free. Wiggling his fingers, he still had feeling in his hands, another encouraging sign. &

Fingers wrapped with well worn leather grasp onto a chunk of flame red hair, yanking back desperately in a feeble attempt to stop the momentum that's rapidly carrying his companion within reach of sharp metal-like claws aimed for the tenderness of an exposed throat.
Too late the Trader realizes his folly when a second set of claws streamlines back, a shriek of pain torn from his lips as hot crimson liquid boils to the surface when the Hunter rakes down -his skin and tissue shredded as if his wrist were made of simple parchment, forcing the man to release his grip in an instant. Without pause his would-be captive spins again, red rimmed silver eyes reflecting little beyond acute rage and determination as he lunges for the Trader's companion once more, felling him so quickly that he's given no time to even scream as he crumples onto the rough ground below.
Surrounded by four others in the campaign, another Hunter lies already subdued the same creature t

Within Which a new Explanation
of the Presence of Myriad Genetic Lines
Within Mew is Explored
Mew is a pokémon shrouded in mystery and mythology. Purported to be the "ancestor of all pokémon," despite obvious issues with that claim, Mew continues to be a popular pokémon in modern society, particularly amongst the more secular peoples, who treat the pokémon with a reverence normally reserved for deities. It boggles the mind, but habit and tradition will do that to even the best of minds.
This topic is not new to me, as I have often encountered so many of the "Mewists," those scientists who continue to support the Mew Hypothesis of Genesis, in my studies. I find their stubbornness to even look at other hypotheses annoying, and their tendency to push their hypothesis on others with close-to religious fervor unnerving. Most recently, my research into the reality of Egg Groups unearthed a number of Mewists, including some of my clos

Of these three major powers, none could ever be the true victor because the Controller would always balance them out. One way of doing so was through the use of Ravens. R

You say the night has lost her spark,
The stars grow dim and the future's dark.
Everything you dreamed has turned to dust,
While you wait to be turned to ash and rust.
But you're stuck. You're caught. There's no way out.
You hide in the dark and scream and shout.
You think there's nothing left to see,
You've been everywhere there is to be.
So you're asking me what you should do,
But all I can say is you've got to
Deal with it.
Even if you feel
Like you wanna quit.
You'll just have to deal
Deal with it.
I know this feeling
makes you wanna kneel,
But you'll just have to
find a way to deal.
So deal! Deal!
Deal with it!
Even if you feel
Like you wanna quit!
You're gonna have to
Deal with it!
You want to feel alive again
You want to find that perfect friend.
But you just wallow in your pinning,
You'd never see them for all your whining!
You wander, You're lost, and you can't find
The things that went bump behind your mind.
You still can't find your rightful place,

Mulan Hua was a woman in China who chose to enter the army in her fathers stead, as she thought him too old to enter into service again. She disguised herself as a man and spent ten years fighting the Mongol hordes and lost many comrades, all the while keeping her true identity a secret. She became known for being the swiftest horse-rider in the whole of the Chinese empire which was probably due to her lighter body weight in comparison to her male counterparts. When her ten years of service had come to an end Mulan met with the Emperor, who offered her a high-ranking military title and a position in the government. She turned the Emperors offers down and asked only for a swift mount to carry her home, as she no longer desired to devote herself to the charade of a life that she was living. A few of her comrades decided to pay her a visit before they went out fighting again and were shocked to see Mulan as a woman. When word reached the Emperor,

5/5 = Excellent!
Though, I usually watched family-oriented animated films; but I guess, I am like wholesome vs taboo. I first encountered Ralph Bakshi's films when I was a teenager - I don't know how old. I started with "The Lord of The Rings;" then "Wizards," that film became my favorite Bakshi film. And then I watched on YouTube : "Fire & Ice," "Cool World" (live action/animated), "Heavy Traffic," and this film "Hey Good Lookin.'"
Well anyway, this film takes on a gritty,outrageous look at the Eisenhower era in Brooklyn, New York (the 1950s). And also about gang-leader Vinnie, his gang called the Stompers, his sexy girl Roz, his friend Crazy Shapiro; also, the all-out rumble with the black rival gang called the Chaplins.
I love the scene where we first meet Roz, it has a great homage to Tex Avery's "Red Hot Riding Hood" cartoons. I also love the part where Vinny screamed at the corpse buried in the sand, and all the Si

With his wings tucked in,
Tears in his eyes,
And cuts in his skin,
He once was innocent,
At some point in time,
Because of his scars,
He's no longer divine,
His wings are withered,
His arms rest on his knees,
His tears run down,
As fast as his wrist bleeds,
Do you see him,
Hiding over there,
Are you going to act,
Like you don't care,
In torment and tears,
He does dwell,
We cannot help,
