Caitian PhilosophyNever kill anything unless you have no choice.Caitian Philosophy3 years ago in Settings More Like This
Help strangers, but never let them know too much about you.
Strength comes from unity; the pride is stronger than a lone predator.
Know your prey's weakness but do it no harm.
Loyalty is its own reward.
Offer to assistance wounded prey, do not take advantage of them.
All life has the right to exist by virtue of existing.
Nature is cruel, that dose not mean that we have to be.
Always take an enemy alive if you can.
Sadism is never acceptable, no creature is a trophy.
Only act as a predator out of necessity, never by desire.
There is nothing more precious than life.
You are worth no more or no less than your prey.
Traditions that cause suffering and death are not worth preservation.
It is always a good idea to have someone watching your tail.
Open aggression is always your last resort.
The mind is more powerful than the stomach.
Be calm, but make sure that prey has a healthy fear of you.
Let others know that you can be trusted, never betray

Glancing back and seeing nobody, Shari left the residence hall. Compared to the air in the baths, the outdoor air was refreshing. For extra relief, he dunked his head into the large central fountain that laid between the four buildings. The cold shock only half-rejuvenated his mind, doing little to push out the drunkenness, but it was enough to clear away the tears.
The sun was down, and the stars hung in the sky, but the night was still far too young to see the sun's shadow, the black moon that moved always opposite. Reaffixing his glasses and the cloak, Shari sat on the fountain wall, still fuming. He was perfectly aware he was drunk, but despite this state he could not shake the final conclusion that he had come to: he absolutely had to get out of here and finish what the brigands had started a long time ago. Taking any more time waiting around would have only led to more risk at being discovered, more punishments and more injustice, while if he took off and failed, he would merely

The Genetic Park 5 part 2
I stood there, watching Leo, a "friend" of mine, who just a few minutes ago tried to rape me. He was now lying on the ground as all his body was cramping and twitching. All thanks to the injection which was meant to be for me.
Tears started building inside, tears of anger, that moron has been a jerk all this time, assaulted Eva and attacked me, and to top it all, he almost forced me to have sex with him. I was already pissed at what how my stay in this park was getting its turn for worst, ever since I saw Eva and Scott kissing at the docks. I woke up to find blood trickling from my groin and a constant pain in my abdomen, which came and went from time to time. My only hope to improve my day was to get the additional serum. But I had to use it on Leo, after allowing both Scott and Eva to flee from there. Now I had lost my chance and probably I wasn't getting her back. I so wanted to head there and beat the pulp out of him.

SCP-049 TheorySome things to point out about SCP-049 first - his docile nature, his termination of the "infected", and the nature of that termination.SCP-049 Theory2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
SCP-049 kills people it believes are infected. During a conversation with it, the doctor who first spoke with it made the assumption that the "Great Pestilence" it spoke of was the plague. This is perfectly agreeable, as SCP-049 takes on the appearance of a Plague Doctor. However some things do not add up. Firstly, the doctor's own assurance, that "no one here is infected". If it were the plague SCP-049 was sensing, it would be very apparent that certain people did have the plague, as the symptoms are very noticable. However, it is clear that no one is infected in the SCP Foundation, due to the lack of symptoms and, most simply, because the plague occurred several hundred years ago, and such an epidemic has not taken such a toll since then. Simply, the chances of someone infected with the said disease is very, very small.

At one of the weight benches, a white-furred muscular rabbit named Kyriell is finishing up a set. The bar is loaded with heavy weight plates with about 850 pounds of weight in total on the bar. The rabbit struggles to get up his last rep. "Man ..I should not have pushed myself this hard this early", the rabbit said as sweat poured down his face and off his long ears.

Garethil nodded his head in understanding as the agitated woman spoke. He had tried to get a word in edgewise once or twice, but she spoke so rapidly, barely pausing for breath, that he had since contented himself with letting her ramble. He sighed inwardly at her request; as if he had time to go all the way out to Zul'Aman to search for some so-called buried treasure that may or may not even exist, not to mention dodging angry trolls the entire way. That sounded just like his idea of a pleasant excursion...
Looking at the woman near tears, he suddenly felt ashamed for his irritation. This artifact was said to have healing properties and if it could save her child, who was he to deny her that hope? How she had even heard about it was beyond him. He was a historian and an accomplished archaeologist and he had never caught wind of this item before.

Her tone was scornful, but with better things to worry about, Edgar did not take it to heart. He uncovered his eyes. She was feeding the child like a mare, not a woman, so he felt no need for embarrassment. He stooped down a little, trying to determine the gender of the young one. As with foals, it was easy enough to tell.
'What a delightful little boy,' he said.
The mother smiled. 'Thank you.'
'Do you mind if I sit down here for a few minutes?'

There was a long silence as everyone stared at me with unsettled eyes. Surprised by the nature of my accusation, none of them knew what to argue or how to respond to that. I heard a couple of whispers. If I was gonna be preventing things from escalating, I would stick to my hypothesis.
Everyone looked at me in expectation or shock. Lavender, Paul and Josh watched at me with astonished surprise, while at the same time waiting for my explanation. Some of them looked rather impatient as well, the principal of the school, the coach and some of the other competitors. Miss Hawthorne seemed to be looking at me with much interest and curiosity.
