BreathA poison in the words of a soldierBreath2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Of a monster, of a child, of a man about to die.
Something a child remembers in its mother
Something more powerful than a heartbeat
Because a heartbeat
Can be stopped
Forming words of hate and love
Of sorrow, happiness, regret
A venom in the lungs of a suffering young girl
Yet a treasure in the eyes
Of a man
About to die.
This is life.
This is sorrow.
This is pain.

It was an average January morning for Eve. She woke up from another depressing dream, gathered her supplies, and for half an hour she rested her ear against the dark tinted window of the car she spent the night in. At first all she heard was quiet then she heard someone calling out for survivors.
Hello, He yelled, Anyone alive!?
It was quiet for a moment, the survivor began to scream and then it was quiet. Dumb bastard, Eve said under her breath. Maybe a few months ago she would have attempted to save the idiot. Back when she still cared about most things. Back then she was the average straight A, over achiever, but that meant nothing when the world had been thrown to anarchy. No government, no order, no law and no friends with all of that gone she had only one thought within her common sense, looking out for herself. She felt that everyone else had abandoned her when they died, but she wanted to prove them
RE: Private Wars Pt. IChris Redfield was called into the head physician's office in the United States BSAA headquarters, and he made himself comfortable in the large, black leather chair. By this time, he was on the first name basis with the doctor having been sewn and mended by him several times in the recent years. This visit, however, was not about Chris' health, but that of his partner, Jill Valentine, who had arrived with him weeks earlier from Africa. For the few days Chris and Jill had been in the west African headquarters of the BSAA, Jill had struggled with fatigue and recurring nightmares as her body was going through the withdrawals of the drug, P-30, that has been forced into her system constantly via a pump placed onto her chest by Albert Wesker, the former head of the Umbrella pharmaceutical company, and Chris Redfield's arch nemesis. Now that Chris and his partner were back in the states, Jill continued to struggle and had remained in the BSAA hospiRE: Private Wars Pt. I3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

What is Democratic Socialism?What is Democratic Socialism?3 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Democratic socialists believe that both the economy and society should be run democraticallyto meet public needs, not to make profits for a few. To achieve a more just society, many structures of our government and economy must be radically transformed through greater economic and social democracy so that ordinary Americans can participate in the many decisions that affect our lives. Democracy and socialism go hand in hand. All over the world, wherever the idea of democracy has taken root, the vision of socialism has taken root as welleverywhere but in the United States. Because of this, many false ideas about socialism have developed in the US. With this pamphlet, we hope to answer some of your questions about socialism.
Doesn't socialism mean that the government will own and run everything?
Democratic socialists do not want to create an all-powerful government bureaucracy. But we do not want big corporate bureaucracies to control

Castle Volkihar was along the North-Eastern edge of Skyrim. Not too far from The Forgotten Vale. Aarvak disappeared with a cry as I made my way to the boat leading to the castle. The Castle was almost always shrouded in mist and fog, darker than anywhere else along the coast. Its dramatic walls and poised gargoyles at the front entrance made it very ominous. It was early afternoon and the castle looked darker and quieter than I thought it should be. It was only a second later that I realized it was a trap.
The Mages came from both sides and knocked me over. I attempted to use a shout, but a cloth covered hand covered my mouth, I fell unconscious.
I woke to shackles on my wrists and ankles. I was chained to a wall sitting down. My bow, my blades were gone. My armor was gone. I shivered in my small clothes. I heard noises coming from outside the door. I was locked in one of the torture chambers. This was not good. I heard the voices ge

"To get the new season shirt of course," I replied for the fifth time.
Myself and my sister, Twilight Sparkle, were at that moment walking down a street in Canterlot. She was wearing only a saddlebag, advertising her status as a college mare. I, on the other hoof, as a respectable officer of the Royal Guard, wore a lovely red shirt, as well as a saddlebag. Spike meanwhile wore a Twilight Sparkle on his bottom while reading a newspaper.

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.

If I had a dollar for every feminist who rebutted the phrase “I don’t like feminism” with “what do you have against equal rights for women?”, my wealth would rival that of Steve Jobs!
No, feminists, we do not have a problem with women wanting equal rights to men. Our problem is not with what feminists claim to stand for. Our problem is not with their positions. Our problem is with their words and actions.
