F-59A Sabre II
The F-59A Sabre II is an advanced 5.5 generation medium weight stealth fighter designed for air superiority. It is powered by a single PDT-60 variable cycle engine that produces 40,000-60,000 lbf (18,143.69-27,215.54 kgf) of thrust via a 2 dimensional thrust vectoring nozzle. This advanced engine can propel Sabre II to a maximum speed of Mach 2.4 at 30,000 ft (9,144 m) while providing efficient cruise performance.

The MV-27A Pegasus is a land or carrier based low-observable, supersonic VTOL multirole assault transport designed for the USN and USMC. It is designed primarily for Special Forces insertion and extraction along with performing COD for both the carrier and other surface ships.
Pegasus while low-observable relies primarily on staying low and fast to avoid enemy detection. To achieve this, Pegasus uses variable bypass turbofans to optimize low altitude performance, along with having an extensive electronic warfare and countermeasures suite built in. For more dangerous missions, semi-conformal jamming pods can be carried.
To protect itself from airborne threats, Pegasus can carry up to 4 AIM-182 ALRAAM or SRAAM air-to-air missiles internally. A retractable 25mm GAU-12 Equalizer gun turret is mounted under the fuselage to clear any hostiles around a landing site. A rear ramp mounted M134 Minigun or GAU-19 GECAL 50 can also be installed.

One MistakeI'm a Christian. . .One Mistake2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I believe in God and in Christ
I trust the Holy Ghost
I try not to hate, try not to judge
I say my prayers and read the Good Book
I hope for a brighter future and pray for the children
I help out my neighbors
I'm there for my friends
Give time to the strangers
I stumble and fall
And every night I promise God
I'm sorry for all my sins, forgive me, I'm human
I promise to try harder
I'm a good Christian
I follow His word
Yet I'm of the damned, and I'm of the cursed
Because I made one "mistake"
A "mistake" I'll never be sorry for
I'm "Gay". . .

You are but a simple pawn;
Caught in a maelstrom of ill feelings and turmoil.
You were not meant to be here -
But unfortunately, here you are my friend...
Now then, I do not wish to drag this out;
There is no purpose in badgering someone who knows so little.
However - without your confession - I'm afraid that
I would not know whom I should share my - pleasures with...
Though I'm certain that you will be sharing plenty...
Of course, it will probably be a poor idea to make you scream,
At least not while I'm still enjoying your fear.
Instead we'll begin with a simple agony;
A quick taste of your pain to whet my appetite...
We'll begin with just a thin incision,
One that is made in the center of both your eyelids.
And then, then we'll make another cut - this one just above the eyes...
Ah, I will adore the feeling of watching your skin peel apart
As the scalpel bites in and draws it aside; much like the curtain
Set upon a theatre stage. It is the

Teamwork is Magic Chapter 4Leave it to Rarity to find a place for fashion in a war zone. The elegant unicorn couldn't let her friends just waltz onto the battlefield without looking the parts they played. While the weapons were being modified, she took it upon herself to modify some spare clothes to create uniforms that matched the classes. Everyone matched with some differences necessary due to differing biologies, but she was proudest of her work with Pinkie, turning Ponyville's Premier Party Pony into a spitting image of the Russian Mercenary.Teamwork is Magic Chapter 44 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Which is why Rarity was flustered when Pinkie respawned wearing a black, badly kept hairpiece
"Where in Equestria did you get that garish thing?"
"Dunno. Things just keep appearing on my head when I get back here"
"Things?" She asked incredulously. Pinkie pointed across the room to the cubby where Pinkie was keeping a large pile of hats. Rarity stood, mouth agape at the pile. The heavy let out a hearty laugh
"Horosho! Tiny Pink has discovered hats!"

"Engi!" The man had a dilapidated medigun trained on him. "What happened!?"
"The RED Spy," he said through gritted teeth, obviously in pain. He was covered in bloody bandages, mainly around his chest and arms. "He ambushed me Twilight, he took the plans"
The sentence hit her like a freight train. She looked around quickly, trying to piece it all together "No...No!"
"Dat's not the only thing he took " Scout's voice was barely audible, but he pointed to the regenerator. A large section was covered in knife marks, and was sparking wildly. "Ain't no respawnin anymore"
"How'd he get in!?"
"Don't know. Doesn't matter. It's all over," Scout said more to his hands than anyone in particular, head clasped tightly. "We're done"
Twilight looked around at the melancholy faces. They had all given up hope. Just like Scout. Even P

Patrol. Jix hated it. But Rex had sent him and Sergeant Coric because there was no one else to spare.
"Check for stragglers. We need to be sure all civilians have left the area. Things are going to get nasty soon." Rex had told them.
The first three houses were clearly empty; they didn't even bother getting off their speeder bikes. The road they were traveling on was just a mere path with two ruts separated by a grassy hump in the center. Trees overhung it on both sides, some lower branches managing to slap out at the clone trooper pair as they road along.
"Uhg.. no one is out here.. let's just get back sarge." Jix grumbled, slapping away a branch as they flew by.
"I think the last house is just around this curve," Coric's voice crackled over the comm. "The road ends at this little--"
"Look out!" Jix shouted.
They came out of the blind curve and two kids, a boy and a girl, were standing in the knee deep grass in the road. They made no effort to get out of the way of the oncoming

He felt heavy, heavier than usual. Something was keeping him from moving. Opening his eyes he growled as the sun's rays nearly blinded him. He'd forgotten to dim the window again before going to sleep. Moving his arm he heard something scrape on his chest. Looking down he saw a little black dome breathing gently on his chest with a teddy bear clutched in it's owner

"Come on kids. We're almost there." Ashley Williams leads the merry group towards the hill overlooking the valley. Her long dark hair pulled back into a ponytail, she looks back at the other chaperone. Urdnot Grunt grumbles to himself as he trails behind the group. "You doing alright Grunt?"
"What am I doing here anyway? There's no fighting and I'm not good with….kids."
"Is that why you're letting Syren ride on your head?"
Grunt averts his eyes from hers, "She wouldn't stop asking me if she could ride with me."
"Uh-huh. I always knew you had a soft spot for the kids Grunt."
"I do not! You take that back!"
Syren giggles from on top his head. "Krogan charge!"
Grunt sighs to himself, "Maybe later, Blue."
Ayrene looks over her shoulder at her little sister, "Sy? Leave your uncle Grunt be for now. He was nice enough to let you hitch a ride. Don't push your luck, okay?"

Same old military food, Samantha Traynor thought miserably, picking at her plate. Around her, the room buzzed with the conversation of the best minds Alliance Intelligence had to offer, admirals, captains, lieutenants and her. The specialist. She turned her head to glance at the spot on her shoulder she'd seen Patience - no, make that Lieutenant Champion - staring at, where her rank insignia resided, and sighed. She tried to remember her brief orientation before starting work in the R&D lab, desperate to work out what the problem had been, but all her memories were of the physical exercise during the basic training she'd had to undergo on recruitment. Across the room she could make out the slight form of the woman with whom she'd envisaged a proper relationship after exchanging messages on matters professional and personal during the Reaper War. She saw Lt Champion glance briefly in her direction, then her face h

The test subject didn’t respond or even stir. Blood stained the side of her tank top, and the turret responsible for it sang, “Searching…”
“Get up,” GLaDOS demanded. “We both know you’re just trying to get out of testing. But that’s not going to happen. I saved your life, and now you’re going to test for the rest of it. That was the bargain.”
There was no answer. The human, eager to finish the last test of the day, had sprinted around the corner without looking. It had been reckless, stupid even. If she’d just looked, she would have been able to simply reach around with one arm and tip the turret forward, leaving a clear path to the exit door.
But she hadn’t looked. She’d made her first serious error in her long career of testing, and had been unconscious before she hit the ground.

One day Sparkz was in the park walking as it was a nice sunny day but no one was in the park. He walked for hours until he spotted something.
"Whats that?" He said as he picked up the object as it was a studded wristband. "Cool, looks like those things a goth would wear." He said as he put it on his arm as he checked it out more. "Cool." He said as he continued walking.
He walked a little bit more until...
"Ouch." Sparkz said. "This armband is getting a little too tight." He said as he tried to pull it off but it wouldn't. "What the hell, its stuck and its not coming off." He said as she tried to pull it with all his strength as he fell back on the grass with a thud. "Ow." He said rubbing his head when he noticed something.

"Aunt Tali!" are the only words she hears before a blue streak rockets into her midsection. Tali glances down as she tries to catch her breath. Little Ayrene looks up at her with sheer joy in her eyes, her arms wrapped tightly around Tali's waist. "Well look at you, I can't believe how much you've grown Aya.
Tali glances up to see Liara standing in the doorway with a bemused expression on her face, her hands placed on the bulge at her stomach. Tali's eyes widen "Keelah, Liara! Why didn't you tell me?"
Liara chuckles, "Shepard figured your reaction would be priceless."

A small tug at his leg snaps him back to reality. Looking down, he spies little Syren looking up at him hesitantly, a teddy bear clutched tightly in one arm. A warm smile spreads across his face.
"Something I can do for you, Little Bit?"
Syren blushes furiously and looks down at her feet. Wrex chuckles to himself. (She is so unlike her father) "It's alright, I don't bite."
Syren looks back up at the old warrior and quietly asks, "Charge?" Wrex throws back his head and roars with laughter. "Spoken like a true Shepard." With one fluid motion he reaches down and scoops her up and onto his shoulders.
