"That knowledge is reserved for the next," the voice answered, after a long pause.
"What do you mean, the next?"
"One among those who will live," it said.
"You mean I'm going to die?"
"Well, yeah, bu--"
"Nobody will die like you. It's so sad."
"How am I going to die?"
"Fighting. Agonized. Despairing."
"A lot of people die like that."
"Not like you will. Few have suffered what you will be made to face. And none have faced it in such an intensity."
"Why do you want to kill me?"
"It's not you We're after. We want your heart."
"Why? It's a mass-produced machine; you can go find an artificial heart someone's not using."
"We knew you were stupid. We did not know you were this stupid."

Light met Kane's eyes briefly as he fell back towards the ground. Blindness took him over again as the black sludge enveloped him, becoming his body, restoring his previous size and form.
"Get your clothes back on," he heard his attacker say.
Kane opened his eyes again, shaking a bit. The light stung, but these eyes had just been regenerated by the sludge, so it was natural they'd be a bit sore.
"What are you waiting for?" the attacker asked. "Get your clothes."
Kane felt around for his clothes by the base of the tree, and hurried to put them back on. So many weird things happened in so little time.
After about a minute, he was almost completely dressed again. He stood up slowly, using the tree to brace himself.
Kane laughed quietly. He didn't know why he was laughing. Nothing was funny about his situation.
In the past few minutes, he'd had most of his body matter blown off; his size reduced; he'd been swallowed, thoroughly interrogated, barfed back u

This is a world where hopes and dreams come to die.
A world deeply descended into darkness, yet at the same time, bathed in light.
As far as worlds go, it's an odd one, and far from pleasant. Its unique set of physics allow antimatter to drift by in vacuum bubbles, not really interfering with anything at first.
But when its field decays... then come the storms. The same kind of storm that took everything from me.
Everything has flaws. In all of existence, there is no such thing as true perfection. There is only progress, towards something better.
And making progress... is difficult.
I was born with a heart condition that would cause me to die within a few months of my birth. My father, an amazing man, crafted an artificial heart for me, and I was able to survive, thanks to him.
Over time, voices formed in my head, and kept getting louder and louder, and more numerous. Eventually, they became less prominent; and I got used to them, I guess. I've never reall

A "War of the Words" Short story by TheTrueCyberneko(Raymond Carson)
It had been several years since the Seraphim invaded. Sarah leaned on the guardrail surrounding the balcony. She could see the entire city, high above on the Harbinger Cannon building. She glanced towards the sky, the shields enveloping the city cast a soft blue glow on the on the silver buildings. The massive barrel of the Harbinger Cannon gleamed like a trophy.
She gazed to her left, the massive rail-gun's ammunition tower loomed among the cityscape. It had been long emptied during the first Invasion. The cannon was more or less a monument now. Looking to her right, her eyes fell upon the huge Ion Reactor, it's core exposed and gleaming with bright blue plasma. It was the life-support of the city, supplying the shields and each of the Tirashan's homes with energy. Millions of terawatts pulsed within the bright core.

Erring somewhat, but caring for me;
I glimpse into her eyes and from time to time
Our impish spirits rise, and she is mine.
She believes in many, excepting herself
Being blessed aplenty, and neglecting help-
Her tender embraces
move my heart in different ways
And render our faces
so close, yet so far away.
There are lips on her that I've ne'er touched-
Th'air that whips past her tongue is much
More blessed than I in this respect-
For its kiss is unrestrained- and yet
Not an inch may it reach above that's not
Gott'n by my soul when her presence is sought;
For as omnipotent the atmosphere may be
More potent is the attraction between her and me.
Words placed here
Will go and she,
Eyes open and true
Will hold them dear
And know that we
Can live without "I love you".

Height: 6'5" on his hind legs.
Weight: Around 250 pounds.
Race: Anthro wolf.
Appearance: His fur is a strong grey in color along his legs, arms, and back, fading to a lighter shade along his belly. His stance is two-legged by default, though he will often drop on all fours when running quickly or tracking a scent. When standing fully upright he reaches a height of 6'5". His front paws have opposable thumbs, but the digits are thicker and less dexterous than a human's hand. This, along with the thick claws at the end of his fingers, can make handling smaller objects and instruments a bit of a challenge for him.
Oh yeah, here's a pic too: http://img12.imageshack.us/img12/2161/fenrir2.jpg

It was an odd place. Deep within the recesses of the temple, it waited. A light that should not have been gave depth and definition to pillars and paths. A soft blue glow, seeming to stem from the very air itself, filled the place, shimmering and sliding across the walls. Liquid light. Ephemeral. A calm filled the place, though darkness loomed in every corner. Threatening. Wanting. But the light remained. For without light, there can never be shadow.
Something stirred in the darkness. A flash of gold, of blue, or raven black. Out of the darkness a being came. Nameless, it came forth, the light seeming to bend towards it, settling on the blue gems adorning a copper crown. A hiss of water over flesh, the soft ring as droplets fell echoed in the blue-lit chamber. The one from the darkness stood from the waters

Well, it wasn't long before Amy came up with a solution.
"How about we undress each other Tara? You undress me and I'll undress you."
"Sounds like a plan, let's get to it."
With that, Tara turned to the side so her tremendous belly wouldn't get in the way. The black-haired vixen began removing Amy's clothing then proceeding to remove her undergarments. Then Tara turned around slowly as Amy did the same thing to her. Soon both mothers-to-be were stark nude, however, their pool was indoor and heated so they could go for a swim even in the dead of winter.

Mother of everything ;

And no one is caring.
Oh please tell me that Hell is not so near,
That our world will keep some of its beauty.
I want to believe ; I want you to hear :
We can be more than just our worst memory.
Face the truth; face your fate,
Dont be blinded by your hate.
Do not ever ever let
Your beloved brothers slay and get slain.
Face the truth, face your fate,
Dont be trapped in the net
And be the ultimate,
The saviour of those of us who remain.
We shall write our future
With the ink of our past,
We will bear the torture
And defeat it at last.
What if we all were unable to see
The path leading through the clouds, to the skies ?
What if we had no more hope for victory,
Spilling our own blood, tearing our own eyes ?
Face the truth; face your fate,
Dont be blinded by your hate.
Do not ever ever let
Your beloved brothers slay and get slain.

Little did she know, her life was about to have a dramatic change....
It was late evening. The sun was below the horizon, but just enough so it was still light outside. When approaching the local night club, Samantha noticed a local girl, not much older than her stumbled out of the door and onto the streets."She got an early start to the night." Samantha thought. She slowed her pace as the girl crossed the street and wabbled directly in front of her. The girl was barely able to keep herself upright, not helped by her high heels.

The glow from the grand hall was visible all the way across town, gleaming against the black backdrop of the lake's dark waters, fires sending shards of arcing, orange reflections across its rippling surface. The festivities were already in full swing by the time I arrived, the party breaking out from confines of the grand hall to spill out onto the grounds in front. Impromptu bonfires roared around the stone steps, accompanied by heaps of folks drinking, dancing, and laughing. A chorus of disjointed instruments struck up a chaotic tune, fiddles, lutes, and Jotun-style drums beating at the night without a semblance of harmony.
Along with the regular crowd, I noticed a plethora of more faces I was unfamiliar with, probably more from the caravan. A few were sharing animated stories with some elven hunters around a fire while another group was giddily spinning in a drunken circle with some of t

Parents called out to their children who were busy playing in the snow. Night time was no place for a child. The night belonged to an entirely different cast of characters. Soldiers from the local barracks searched for a good time. Virile and rowdy teenage boys, who fancy themselves men, poured into the streets. Serb bandits scoured the streets looking for easy pray.

Or bone-chilling be the night,

But spirits never fade,
No, never fade;
Relentless, our tank

With engines a-howling,
Fast as is the wind,
We head for the foe,
Safe, as we're in armor skinned.
Our comrades still behind us roam;
We fight the foe alone,
Yes, fight alone.
We stab through the line
To break the foes backbone.
Whenever the foe
May appear in our sight,
We'll ram throttle full,
Then we'll humble all his might!
Of what use is our life if we
Our country serve freely?
Yes, serve freely!
To die for our country,
Our honour shall be.
With tank traps and mines,
Our foe tries to impede.
We laugh at his ruses;
We know he'll not suceed.
And when, in threat, his cannons stand,
Half hidden in the sand,
Yes, in the sand,
We can find our way
Over much safer land.
And should at long last,

And we remain here,
Leaving family to grieve,
