A long, long time ago, in a galaxy not so far away but kind of hidden and squeezed in between two larger galaxies, a star was born.
Actually, a lot of stars were born. And a lot of them "supernova-ed", too. It's a frickin' galaxy, what do you expect? But this story isn't even about a star; it's about a robot. The coolest robot ever, in fact.
A bona fide boon of robot royalty: M.A.T.T.
So how did M.A.T.T. enter into this world?
Was he born
the way normal human beings are?
Was he a result of mitosis?
Did he rise from sea foam
like a Greek goddess of love?
Close, but no.
It's not so hard to figure out. He's a

I had been thinking about the troubling philosophical issue regarding the hypothetical teleportation device that uses quantum entanglement to instantaneously transfer data, then uses that data to exactly replicate the individual in the new place and simultaneously destroy the original. The new copy is like a twin with all the same memories of the original, right up to the event of the teleportation, creating a perfect illusion of transportation to everyone, including the replicant, who would have first person memory of the lifetime of the original and therefore believe himself to be the original. The only party for whom this fax machine from hell fails is the original, who is stifled by nonexistence.
So how can one be certain of this tragic flaw without experiencing it fi

Spencer is right beside you in the car, his fingers stroking idly at your forearm, watching you with hooded green eyes.
"If you want to die," he says, "then just kill yourself, but do it with style."
You met The Boy Under the Sycamore Tree when you were four. Your mom encouraged you to go see the lonely boy, and when you first went over to him, he ignored you. The Boy Under the Tree, that's what you called him for the first day you knew him, was a little older than you with dark hair and smoky green eyes.
With encouraging looks from your folks, you walked right next to him and sat down, pressing your back against the tree's rough trunk.

All my life, though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all
But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more............

I had been waiting for someone for over two hours and he still hadn't shown. I was begining to think that he had forgotten that I needed to talk to him about something really important.
Now eight o'clock and he still hadn't shown. I wasn't worried about him just annoyed at him. He could handle anything that the world/universe threw at him (I guess).
I glanced at the clock: quater-past eight pm. Thunder rumbled the storm was nearing. I sighed getting up off the cream couch and walked over towards the window. I opened the heavy velvet white curtians, it sure was raining. The front yard looked like a shallow lake but still a lake.
Adult (Cronus/Reader)Cronus didn't have the youthful look going for him like many other males that were deemed cute or sexy. He had long outgrown that stage of life, now nearing 29 he has a small bit of youth to him but he looked pure adult sexy. The sexy that Hugh Jackman had, without the stubble or the fame to match. Anyway someone thought about it they would mentally, not actually, say he was sexy.Adult (Cronus/Reader)2 years ago in Romance More Like This

Some were close enough to his destination, you. "Hey, babe!" he said getting your attention, that caused 30 other heads to turn towards him. You licked the melting bit of the ice cream in your hands, "Wanna lick?" you asked as he sat down next to you under your umbrella. You handed him the small cone and you could feel the looks of envy from the other girls around you.

When she had finished crying she just sat and stared at the fire. I was thankful that the kid didn't start crying, he'd been with the staff for the 2 hours. I sighed, I was seriously bored the fire held nothing interesting, Sonia wasn't talking, infact it was hard to tell if she was even alive she barely moved after she stopped crying.
I began to wonder about what she could be thinking about. Did it have anything to do with why she'd been crying?
I'd stopped crying after 2 hours now I just stared at the fire. I wished it to burn away my pain, I had no such luck. I noticed that Shadow was bored he'd sigh every so often. Why hadn't he left? Was he waiting for me to tell him what happened?

Miranii lay on a white cloth, panting as the sweat ran down her body. A number of people surrounded her; all women. One knelt next to the padded wooden slab that passed for a bed and peered between Mirannii's legs.
"You are doing well," she said, although her voice was so monotone as to sound almost bored. Miranii gained no reassurance from the woman's statement. "I... do not need you to tell me that... Hama," she managed between breaths.
"If you would like to do this alone, Miranii, I will be happy to leave." The midwife looked up at Miranii, waiting for her apology.
"Of course not, Hama... I... ah!... I spoke rashly. These last months have not been... Auuugh!" Miranii's entire body tensed, the firm muscles of her arms straining as she gripped the bed. A spasm rocked her body, and she felt the contents of her swollen belly move ever so slightly downward.

I felt the shiny green book drop from my fingers. I went to pick it up, but my hair was caught in the little gap between the bar and the window. I was so tired, I could barely keep my eyes open. My lids closed. Just for a second I told myself. I really should have kept them closed.
I felt my consciousness slip away from me, just like the book had. And then it expanded, like when you click maximize on your web browser. That's what I felt like, a web browser. I had many tabs open, and they were all on different pages. But I felt like I was using Spaces, flipping back to my own body, just for a second, just to check it's still there.
I was the bus, I was the train system, a taxi in Stanley, the cranes, loading the ships at the harbour. Those were my tabs. I felt other presences, other beings, surfing my 'Net. I longed to pry, hack and figure out what they were doing, but I didn't. I just did not feel like it, for some strange reason. It was exactly that. Reason, that was what stopped me f

Ivan stared up at the chipped ceiling of his cell, his amethyst eyes unfocused on the beige colour. It was small with white walls and only contained his bed, sink, and toilet. The bars latched onto his door were rusted and old and at one time, with his trusted pip, Ivan may have been able to break those bars. Several cells down he could hear other inmates fighting and guards rushing down to break them up. He saw their shadows cross over his room as they ran past, their whistles shrieking. Lying next to Ivan was his untouched plate of food. He guessed that the uneatable stuff was British made but he didn't care. Ivan had lost his appetite for anything in the world since that day.
"_____-" he barely whispered to himself.

"[Name], stay awake. Al's almost done," her best friend, [BFF] said, jiggling her shoulder to make her stay awake. [BFF] was the only human aloud at the world meetings, and that was only because of [Name].

He claims she's always been bright
Only he doesn't know that now, like always
They're far too hopeful for their own good
Because eclipses require crossing
And stars cross all the time
Eyes like oceans meet eyes within space
Where chills fill the absence left by nothing
He shivers anyways, shuddering in shadows

She drags him out
Warming his soul down to his toes
She says, The space between us scares me;
I hate the dark
So he draws nearer,
And she would wane back, but
That's not her style
Until they collide and shatter
A thousand shooting stars
But even shooting stars
