The old man's nephew looked out the giant observation window into the city. His workers and helpers spewed statistics at him every so often about the amount of steam being released and the last earthquake location. They barely even stopped talking anymore.
He sighed, which only deepened when his uncle burst in and ran to look out through the window at the city. The nephew watched him, disinterested, then said "Uncle, really, you have your own observation deck, what are you-"
"Shhhh. Hear that?" The old man waved his nephew impatiently into silence, and went back to his staring, pressing his large nose to the window to see better.
The nephew looked out at the city, then back at the old man. "Hear what?" Agitated, the old man looks at him for a moment before seeming to make up his mind and rushing over to him, dragging him to his eye level by the collar.
"Listen," he hissed. He looked back out the window, and the nephew unenthusiastically follows his gaze.

Transformers AlterVerse Timeline
Important Note: Measured in Earth Years, this is a rough guide to many crucial events involving the Cybertronians, the Nebulans, the Seraphims and the Quintessons, that happened before and during the Great War, eventually leading to the events on Earth which involved humanity. These events stretch over a vast amount of time. Please do take notice that most of the events mentioned here occurred at the same time as the Great War of Cybertron and beyond.
As information about the ancient times has been scattered and inconclusive, most details in this Timeline have been gathered from the Covenant of Primus (in the possession of Alpha Trion) and the history records of Vector Sigma. Additional details will be added soon to explain the events between the time gaps between the major events.

The Terrible TrinityThe Terrible Trinity... where to begin?The Terrible Trinity3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
In life, they were triplets, living as happily as three energetic people in their late teens might while being stuck in the same house, as they had not yet left for college. That changed when Sandro the necromancer began a new branch of his experiments on the extraction of the full, or "true" soul...
After determining that they would be ideal for finding out whether links could be established between the fully extracted souls (or if full extraction was possible for three at once, as it was a laborious process requiring constant effort and attention over a period of three to five years), the three were kidnapped. The kidnappings were preformed in a manner so quick that none knew what had happened. When they awoke, Sandro had weakened their minds with spells, and successfully convinced each of the three that they had suffered a horrible accident and would be in the hospital for years.

She looked at me and with a soft smile nodded her head. The girl had big, blue eyes, I got lost in them. They were so clear, she was something special. I didn't notice her waving with her hand in
front of my face until she poked me on the head.
" Oh, sorry about that."
I noticed that she had a big scar on her neck. Because of that I knew she couldn't speak. Suddenly, she was holding me close. I didn't understand, but I guessed that she was probably scared.

The Forward MovementThe Forward Movement2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Tragedy, abrupt to my very soul,
that left me far from whole.
The withered memory born unto my dreams again,
refreshed and once more binding me by chain.
The reopening scars I once upon a time, thought healed,
gape wide to open for the flood gates, red and revealed.
My witnessing eyes bleed out old tears from a rusted well,
Attempting again to put back out the fires of this age old Hell.
The rising waters find my feet and climb,
the two floods meet, where their cause is rhymed.
My heart from which the blood and tears flow,
now at where the pain does ever grow.
Close these outpouring wounds, build back up the walls...
Make for my feet, the forward movement from where my future calls.
Once again I will shed my skin,
leaving behind the marks of where I've been.
The Baths of ErosLit by the gold of an afternoonThe Baths of Eros3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
from the skylight,
a slight and barefoot servant girl,
her plaited hair bound up and
secured with a lyre's harp,
moves from guest to guest, who wait
and mime in the reception hall
of an Athenian bathhouse.
She, bending low, holding a tray
where each man takes a cup to sip from,
peering over the rim,
musing at the heat underfoot from
the fires beneath the stone works,
as a lesser fire stokes those who
watch her with eyes steaming,
melting their cynicism.
Drawn to and leaning forward,
feeling like the beguiling child
who sees his reflection
in the sweet water of a deep well
before falling in without a sound--
the neckline of her tunic folds open,
unspooling her fragrance,
evoking visions of its offerings.
Coping With OCD I suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder. It is my belief that obsessive-compulsive disorder is misunderstood by the masses. People have a tendency to use it to describe their organizational habits or their fandom obsessions, but it is a genuine affliction, and while it is based on trivial thoughts, the effects of it are far from trivial - they are destructive and powerful. I was officially diagnosed with OCD a few months ago, but I have suspected it nearly my entire life.Coping With OCD7 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
OCD is an anxiety disorder. It is based on obsessive thoughts that cause great anxiety, and in order to relieve those thoughts the sufferer performs compulsions, or in other words: rituals. Each sufferer goes through different rituals, but we all have one thing in common: anxiety. Each individual has their own preferences and their own ideas of how things should be in order to relieve anxiety. Most of us realize that these thoughts and anxieties ar

No. No I don't.
My heart feels ripped out of my chest and trampled on too often.
My ears open to screams in the morning.
My eyes close crying every night.
My mind always turns dreams into nightmares.
My lungs contract too soon for me to catch my breath.
My worries far outweigh my years.
My brain feels overworked, overwrought, so tired.
My stomach cramps every night and I curl up in pain.
My knees weaken often but I'm still standing.
My mouth goes dry and I can't speak.
My hands dampen because I have too much to think about.
My bones feel weaker than they ever have before.
But I don't think it's anything to be worried about, really.

That kind of beauty
can haunt a life
and ruin a man,
the incandescent taste of skin
so fair it flouts
a summer day
and taunts the bed clothes
as if to say
this is but a borrowed pleasure;
the supple lilt of hips
making wastrels of my senses
and savoring the scent
of flesh entrapping secrets
like a summer solstice;
and that last wave of wonder
puckered in a silken crescent
breaking over me

All forgotten, all forsaken

Lies a rotting core of devil's teeth and black smoke
Crooked mirror of lies
