APH: Hunger Games: Prologue 589 years ago, the once great country of America stood tall and strong as the superpower of the modern world. In 2011 there were fifty of us being led by America. In 2039, the third World War broke out. By 2047, China had finally gotten back at America for the trillians of dollars in debt money owed. In 2051, our number sharply decreased from fifty to twenty seven in a vain attempt to pay off previous debt. The third World War ends in late 2052. Then our number slips lower; from twenty seven to nineteen. In 2064, China and a few other Asian nations attack America again. There are then only sixteen of us remaining in 2075. The American borders change rapidly.APH: Hunger Games: Prologue3 years ago in Drama More Like This

He released his grip from Danny's neck, causing his almost motionless form to crash to the earth. He then turned to look in the direction that the voice came from, his silver eyes falling upon Jasmine Fenton as she raced on to the scene as fast as her legs could propel her.
"Norrin! Stop! Please, don't hurt Danny! He's my brother!", Jazz pleaded, rushing to her brother's side as she kneeled down to the earth beside him to hold Danny in her arms.
"You said that he is your sibling? Your brother?", The Silver Surfer asked, his features remaining devoid of any motion, yet his voice spoke volumes.

In his own private quarters within the abandoned Castle of Nations Amusement Park, Karl sat at the dinner table with a violin in hand, enjoying the chance to play a little tune before his next murder.
Karl sat on an old, rickety wooden chair in front of a long, chipped wooden table. Upon the table were plates filled with assorted fruits and meats. It would look like the most appetizing feast possible were it not for the fact that all the food was plastic. At the center of the table was a fancy centerpiece: a tiny ceramic castle, which was currently being used by Arma as a perch.
As Karl played a slow, almost mournful tune of his own creation on the violin, he looked across the long table at his dinner guest. A young girl wearing a cyan shirt was tied to the chair. Her hands were also tied behind the chair.

The vids of that day.
Watches the lightning crackle through the Reaper’s metal frames.
Watches them stiffen, shift.
Watches as they move.
Crashing to the ground.
into a veil of dust
as they hit the ground.
It’s a miracle.
The cries of realization,
the light in the eyes of the soldiers.
The unbelieving grins,
the whoops as they send the remaining husks into oblivion.
It’s a miracle,
one of them says,
young and clean-shaven and happy,
with blood smeared on his armor
and his forehead glistening with sweat.
The vid skips to the parade they’d scrambled together,
hasty and under-prepared,
but big all the same.
Teenagers making out.
hell, we’ve earned a little shore leave.
And there was one face on every billboard,
one name on everyone’s lips,
one man in everyone’s thoughts.

"Lieutenant Vega has requested that you meet him in the shuttle bay at 17:30 this evening. He also instructed that you 'dress to kill.' Commander, is there an upcoming mission that I have yet to be informed of?" Shepard chuckled softly at EDI's misunderstanding.
"No, EDI. 'Dressed to kill' means well, why don't you ask Joker? I'm sure he'd be happy to explain it."
"I will do that, Commander." As the intercom clicked off, Shepard let out a loud laugh, imagining the way the conversation might go. Ever since she'd loaded herself up into that body, EDI's sense of humor had, well, not exactly blossomed, since many of her jokes were god awful, but it had grown.

He glanced through the pages of the paper, not noticing anything of real interest and finally, after reading the comics, he set the newspaper aside. He then took another sip of his coffee and proceeded to eat his half-cold breakfast.
Normally he ate the morning meal in the company of the others, whether it was the students or a few of the teachers or a combination of each. This morning though he ate in solitude within the dining room, quite simply because he'd gotten up before everyone else. The sun had barely risen outside and its early morning rays were just pushing away the last of the nighttime darkness.
