She couldn't believe it....How could 2k do this to her? First they make Tenenbaum disappear from the game, and now they have the audacity to make her kill her favorite character, Sinclair?! She immediately wanted to stop playing when she saw his figure leaning shakily against the glass window, in his heavy Alpha Series suit. She new it was him, though she wanted to deny it with all her heart.
"Maybe, its not him....." She thought, frowning softly.
Lamb's smug voice was heard through Delta's radio, her next words wrapping around the girl's heart with a vice like grip that refused to let go.
"Do you recognize him Delta?" Lamb asked in a soft, questioning voice.
You didn't have to see Lamb to know that she was smirking, you could clearly hear it in her voice. Lamb was satisfied with all she had done, this pissed the teenager off to no end. She clu

Rosario + Vampire "A Confession and a Vampire: Reboot"
Chapter 1: 'A Confession and a Vampire: Moka's side'
Author's Notes: Please read:
This is a complete 'reboot' of my ever-popular, original fan-fiction story 'A Confession and a Vampire' except it will be somewhat different. This will follow the events of the most recent manga chapters and contains major spoilers from season 2, chapter 65 and onward.
It also combines elements from my one-shot 'Moka's Strangest Day Ever' (co-written with my very good friend and beta reader, Shadowwolf08, from here on fan-fic) minus the part with Outer Moka, who is no longer around in the manga series; so it will definitely be different. Some events will be the same; otherwise it is a completely different story...kind of, LOL. ^_^
My other story is on hiatus right now as I have no idea what to write or how to wrap it up, so this story will have to hold you over, for the time being anyway. Sorry!
Don't worry – I will not abandon it. I still ha

Liechtenstein raced down the stairs, almost falling over her own feet. It was Christmas morning! Her brother threw a party for Christmas, as he did every year, so Liechtenstein just stayed at his house beforehand. She sat down in the kitchen and waited for him eagerly. She decided it would be best to surprise him with some hot chocolate.
As Switzerland came down the stairs, Liechtenstein raced to him, the chocolate in her hand. She passed it to him, and he took it with a thankful smile. He sipped it, sitting down. "I'll finish this, then we can see what's under the tree, okay?" Switzerland murmured sleepily in his strong Swiss accent.
Liechtenstein smiled. "Alright brother," She said happily. She skipped off to tie her ribbon into her hair and prepare herself.
A few minutes later, Lily came back. "Ready brother?" She asked politely, blinking innocently. She twisted her fingers together behind her back eagerly.
Switzerland nodded, placing his empty hot coco mug into the sink. He followe

The Presidents: George WashingtonThe Presidents: George Washington3 years ago in Settings More Like This
Introduction and Early Life
In 1789, George Washington became the first president of the United States. Perhaps if it had not been for him, the United States may have never even existed in the first place. Today he is typically seen as one of the greatest presidents in American history and is largely looked at. Washington, born on February 22, 1732, gained several traits from his family, including his tall height and an interest in owning land. He had tragedy early in his life. His father died when he was 11 years old so his half-brother Lawrence took care of him. However, at the age of 34, Lawrence died of disease leaving Washington his plantation at Mount Vernon in Virginia. Washington did not have a college education and decided to serve in the British army during the French and Indian War. Early in the war, he was captured along with a band of troops during a battle at Fort Necessity. He was eventually allowed to return home where he again joined the British army and led a V

A New Position
On July 4, 1778 it is the second anniversary of the declaration of independence. For the soldiers it is a day of celebration and for General George Washington a new time of confidence after the Battle of Monmouth when the American troops held their ground a battle that led to a draw. After Monmouth British General Henry Clinton took his army back to their base at New York City. The Continental Congress returned into session in Philadelphia and on July 4th a big celebration of Philadelphia's high society happened. Congressman, statesman, military officials, and wealthy merchants are still in attendance including the new military governor of the rebel capital, Benedict Arnold. Arnold was born into a prominent Connecticut family but his drunken father destroyed the family fortune. Arnold captured Fort Ticonderoga from the British in 1775 but the credit was passed over to the frontiersman Ethan Allen. He fought at the Battle of Saratoga in 1777 and won the fight against the

The human race – quarrelsome, divided against itself, and from the viewpoint of the Race mad, mad, mad – continues to strive for superiority over the alien enemy. Although they now have huge, crude versions of Race fusion power plants, and weapons tech as good and in some ways superior to that of the Race, (among other things, having developed chemical weapons warfare to a nightmare peak beyond anything the Race ever attempted) and are carrying out experiments in deep space-based living and resource extraction the Race never saw economic value or point to, humanity still lags in a number of fields. The tools to build the tools to build the tools still need to be built – Race computer hardware is still beyond humanity’s ability to mass manufacture (although human computer hackers have made mincemeat of Race computer defenses often enough to make it necessary to keep computer systems in Race territory entirely separate from human networks) and human gene-sp

The Knights of Blood tactical unit led by Sergeant Serberus was tasked with eliminating a target located within the premises of an abandoned research facility within the ice cliffs of the frozen planet of Loki. Upon Loki, fierce and battering storms were already causing troubles for their insertion, yet the Brother-Sergeant maintained his composure.
His comrade, however, was not as calm, "This is ludicrous!" snarled Reutger, "The nerve of the Inquisition to have to send us in to mop up their own failures!"
Serberus leaned towards Reutger whilst still being focused on his bolter, "What do you suggest, brother? We've lost contact with ground because of the snowstorms. I am sure everything will clear up eventually. It's just a routine kill target mission, something we have gone over many times before. For a veteran, your apprehension does not allude to such status " Serberus

By 1775, the 13 British colonies in North America were outraged at such high taxation without any representation. The Americans have been burdened heavily by the high taxation. Across the Atlantic Ocean in Britain, King George III is getting outraged. His colonies are in near revolt, they are his subjects, Englishmen, yes not born in England but Englishmen just the same. He is their ruler and it is because of them that his empire is going broke. Decades ago, King George III sent British troops to defend the colonies from French and Native American invaders in what is today called the French and Indian War. While Britain won the war and gained Canada, the war nearly bankrupted Britain and now they need the money. Since Britain has no other choice than raising the taxes that is what they do. Several outrageous had happened following the rise in taxation. The British sent regiments to Boston where most of the outrage had occurred including: the Boston Massacre; and the Boston Tea

It is December 1779 and it is the fourth year into the American Revolution and the war has become a stalemate. Many battles have been won and lost, but neither side has taken the advantage. British General Henry Clinton has a firm base at New York City, but the king's forces have been unable to crush the rebellion as George Washington's army continues to hold them in check. Now camped 30 miles to the west of New York City, the Americans are bracing themselves for another rough winter. The 13,000 American troops camp at Morristown, New Jersey. It has been two years since the Continental Army has survived the legendary conditions at Valley Forge, but this winter will be worse than all others. Valley Forge was a disaster because of the lack of supplies, but Morristown is worse due to the elements. The winter of 1779 was the worst winter in North American history. There were 26 snow storms and 6 of them were blizzards. It was so cold in January that in all but two days was the w

When the world of Saranıaeve witnessed its first dawn, there were two gods to watch in glory. Grı was the god of the light and the Balance, who wanted to observe the beauty of Saranıaeve’s first daylight. During this time the god Gal came to witness the death of the eternal night that had befallen the world. Grı became enamored with the god of the darkness and the Balance, and the two mated to create the sun and moon which rose and set as the day commenced and ended. The two looked upon the world and deemed it befitting of their creation, but soon found it lacking in their dreams and desires. Gal wished to see a world of flourishing life that grew with both night and day, that required destruction for creation, thus creating her half of the Balance. Grı wished to see a world of Justice and Honor to be held by his children that would learn of these virtues in both song and silence, thus creating his half of the Balance. So when the moon was high Gal stol
