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

"Commander Shepard." Shepard's thoughts were jolted from the datapads before her as the AI's voice called for her attention over the intercom.
"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. She was eager to learn human idioms, and anxious to master the art of sarcasm, and her pursuits always managed to quirk the corners of Shepar

Dryd did not avert his gaze from the viewport; he found the void soothing, especially when his temper flared.
The woman, Dryd's secretary, placed the file on his desk and scurried out; when Dryd was in a foul mood, it was best not to disturb his contemplations. He knew what mission the after-report was for. Ever since its inception, it had been the mission.
Dryd, of course, also knew what information the report contained. He had requested it only as a formality, as the remnants of Lucjan's TASO cell on Ganf Magna had already confirmed his elimination. The three members who had evaded Raege's summary investigation were off-world, and were being shipped to different units for incorporation trials.

hasty and under-prepared,

one name on everyone’s lips,
one man in everyone’s thoughts.

Nine months had passed since his beloved Milessa had become pregnant with his child. Hed been so proud, that almost immediately after, he had conducted a clairvoyance to foresee the childs fate. He was certain it would be a boy, and that boy would grow into a strong man, an Imperial Guard officer of the highest quality.
His friend over in the Adeptus Astra Telepathica, Kryl, had warned him not to take the results too seriously, that they might be wrong. He would have none of that. He was the best psyker on Kuluth! There was a reason why he was the advisor of Lord General Ranc! He was never wrong!

I am spying on John.
Well, I say “spying”; it’s reconnaissance, really. The girlfriend –Melanie, I think—has passed the two-week, three-date mark (not a punishing pace on the Track of Love, certainly, but John has been kept rather busy of late) and has met me, so it’s high time for an evaluation. John can’t be expected to contribute anything by way of objective observations and the girl has, as I’ve said, met me, so a personal interview there would be equally useless. I am therefore forced to loiter surreptitiously outside her workplace at lunchtime, waiting for John to collect her for Date #4. I plan to observe them as they meet. Will she be early, waiting for him? What expression will she wear as she waits, or when she sees him? How will they greet each other? Will John lean into her as they

As it so happened, Inquisitor Levys orders were to expand. Because he realized that Raege would have little idea how to begin doing that, he directed her towards the nearest battle.
That so happened to be the world of Matrinar, out near the rim of the Halo Stars. The journey took the better part of a month. Levy had instructed Raege to pick up any guardsmen that were clearly abandoned. The Rapidheart was equipped well enough to provide for a large influx of wounded as well. With these instructions, Raege set out.
As soon as the Rapidheart had entered the Imperial Navys safe zone, Raege set out aboard a bulk freight lifter. From there, she and her unit shuttled to the nearest fight.

What would his expression be like if she had cut the tendrils in his legs and left him out in the snow, where he would catch cold and die? How would he react if she slipped and gave him a push at the top of a cliff, sending his body to be smashed and broken against the unforgiving ground?
