While their reptilian boss rested and basked in his quarters of the hideout his three henchmen were busy collaborating a plan to get Boss Croc and that Plague woman together.
"Boss Croc isn't interested in nobody he's cold blooded remember. Told us himself," Freddy argued laughing at the thought of their reptilian leader having emotions.
"Ain't so sure about that. Boss Croc kept sniffing the air on our way to Waine Manor," Butch remarked back. "He looked sorta disappointed even when we left tha place."
"Why should we help him score a date if all he ever did was treat us like rats," Vic complained.
"Don't forget that monster did force us to work for 'im against our will in the first place," Freddy added.
"If those two are together they'll want us out of the picture and we'll be free from those circus freaks you idiots. After while crocodile remember Freddy?!," Butch said as he strapped on his book bag. "I'm heading out to find that woman you two try to convince those two over

Something crashed upstairs and the man who sat around and got drunk all day yelled at his wife. The whole city could have heard their argument. Jonathan rolled his eyes as he came out of his morning shower and put on his clothes, making sure his vest and tie were neatly fastened and looking sharp. He wiped his glasses clean and ran a comb through his midnight black hair quickly so it would be only slightly wavy, not tangled, when it dried.
He fed his black cat and left his apartment room with a few loving strokes to the feline and another check on his appearance through the mirror on the wall. He walked down to the parking lot of his apartment complex with his hands in his jacket pockets, accepting th

Agent Massachusetts 'Massa'
Artificial Intelligence: Pi (Curiosity)
The rainforest was beautiful.
Massachusetts couldn't remember the last time she'd seen anything like it. Most of the simulation bases she'd been to were set in scrubland or ice, places she would never be comfortable in. Massa loved the greens and browns of the place, and the splashes of colour found on fungus and birds. She could happily spend her life out here it wasn't as if she couldn't find her own food, and there was an abundance of clean water up a small mountain. Rainforests were Massa's favourite places.
However, one of her teammates disagreed profoundly with her opinion.
Michigan fell once again, cursing up a storm that scared off many small birds. No one offered to help him up, so he was left to stagger to his feet. His usual yellow armour was brown more than anything else, giving him the appearance of a badly bruised banana. On the bright side, it offered far better camouflage, like Massa
Finding Strength ShepardxAlenko"You mean a lot to me Kaidan, I love you." Three years. Three absolutely agonizing years Kaidan had waited for Shepard to whisper those three simple words to him. As her hand brushed against his face and he looked into her eyes, she held nothing but affection and admiration for him. There had always been holding back, skirting around the idea, and light playful jokes about it. But when he finally had her sitting in his lap, their gazes locked in each other she finally let him know just how much she cared about him. There was nothing keeping her from him anymore, as he'd long abandoned his philosophy of leaving a way out as well. He no longer wished to be with anyone else, no one else would ever be able to fill him so completely the way Shepard did. He wanted to be hers and hers alone, he wanted to be the man she needed, the man she wanted. It was obvious that Shepard didn't actually need a man to protect her. She could handle herself against just about anything this galaxy could thrFinding Strength ShepardxAlenko3 years ago in Romance More Like This
On The Threshold of CreationDaughter of Hecate,On The Threshold of Creation2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I was born upon the threshold
of one year and the next:
a tiny earthen creature,
awash in a sea of stars.
Too late did I remember
Capricorn is the goat with
the tail of a fish,
and perhaps my legs were never meant
to tread upon the earth.
I've heard tell
that Saturn is the harshest master,
and will never be satisfied
by words alone.
In the beginning I was sure-footed
as the goat who glitters in stars above me,
ideas sprung full-grown from my head,
as Athena born from Zeus
Too late do I recall
that prophecy foretold,
Zeus' own creation
would surpass even him.
I'm still trying to puzzle out
whether my own creation
will surpass me, and live on,
or destroy me altogether.
Yet still I weave my words,
and endeavor to make Athena proud.
She beckons me home,
tall and stern from woven banner:
tempts me with promises of "Eureka",
and still I pray, to any who would hear me
that my living words will whisper
"non omnis moriar."
Midnight ComfortIt was late when Shepard left the med bay, which was probably a good thing. Dr Chakwas had left many hours before, not wanting to relive the painful hangover she had had last time they were drinking together. So she left Shepard and the bottle, excusing herself and telling the commander to have at it. So she had. She could barely stand by herself and the last thing she wanted was any of her crew to see her like that. She made it all the way to the elevator in the dark, smiling to herself as she pressed, or more accurately fell onto the call button. She was a ninja, no one could catch her.Midnight Comfort3 years ago in Romance More Like This
"Shepard?" The elevator doors opened just as Kaidan leaned out of his room, clearly curious at who or what would be skulking around the ship at this time of night. He was a soldier, and he had had more than his fair share of ambushes. His war honed senses wouldn't allow him to be caught unawares again. Upon seeing his CO though, he relaxed, smiling a genuine smile that made Shepard's buzzy brain screa

She could almost feel the stares, but she didn't really care; her entire attention was focused on the screen before her. Absently, she thought she would have done better to take this incoming mail upstairs in her cabin, but it had been too late to do that the moment she read the opening line.
"We have someone you're familiar with "
Normally, she'd have dismissed the transmission at once, consider it a cruel, malicious joke or even a scam-there were a lot of those going round the extranet, after all-but she had instead read through it. And she was sure she had been staring at her screen for a goodly amount of time by now; given she normally didn't stand still for this long, it was no wonder people were getting concerned.

It Falls Apart ShepardxAlenkoIt Falls Apart ShepardxAlenko3 years ago in Romance More Like This
Things were never easy whenever Shepard was involved. Kaidan would have liked to say he was surprised when Anderson had told him that Shepard had surrendered to the Alliance after venturing into the unmapped Omega 4 relay, destroying the Collectors ship as well as the base then blowing up a mass relay in the Bahak system, destroying the entire thing in the process. The news itself certainly rocked him to his core. Shepard had destroyed an entire system. The way it sounded it was without a single flinch or care, all in the name of stopping the Reapers. Shepard's resolve was never going to break whenever the Reapers were involved. Despite death, disaster and destruction following her around like a second shadow, she still persevered trying to be the biggest hero in the galaxy. But then she went and destroyed an entire system, Kaidan was having trouble wrapping his head around that. He barely could accept the fact that Shepard was alive again, he had watched the original Normandy explode,

A small alien spacecraft slipped undetected past a stationary marker buoy. This buoy is one of trillions that make up a grid that marks the border between known and unknown space. The two creatures within this craft belong to a society of many alien races known as the Concord. Every individual is forbidden from passing this border by law of this Concord. However, these two aliens will risk it for their goal is to explore uncharted worlds, beyond the borders to scavenge anything they can find to take back and sell in the black market. Technology, resources, even alien animals and people unknown to them.
Since the entire mission is illegal, they could face severe criminal charges if caught, but they must. It's within their nature. They're a pirating people. Their very race's survival depends upon their scavenging and profit skills. They're a sim

Yesterday somebody on Facebook showed me an extremely well referenced piece of satire that conclusively demonstrated that feminism fights for gender equality on both fronts.
He was right.
For men, the rise of feminism has elevated us from second-class status. Equality and fairness have become part of our everyday lives. In the following argument, I won’t simply assume that certain things are the way they are because of feminism. I will actually demonstrate how feminism was the causal factor that influenced the situation.
Because of feminism, you will never see men who were sexually assaulted by women outright dismissed as objects of a joke in a satirical newspaper article. Long gone are those days! Everybody knows now that men get raped by women, to

The following morning, Neelix wasted no time getting back to the workshop.
His haste helped him to keep his mind off of what had happened the night before.. which only brought up more questions than answers. Unsettling feelings that left him feeling confused. After what had happened, he assumed he was not alone in his feelings anymore, and had a strong intuition that something, anything, was there inside Heather, as well. A tiny spark of hope. The thought warmed him inside...
But, like Heather, he needed to be sure... which, unfortunately, only time would allow. When Heather was ready.. if she really was feeling something for him, she needed time to slowly open up to him. At least, he hoped...
As Neelix and Heather entered the workshop, they were both startled by a loud commotion. They turned their attention in the direction of the chaos and Heather was both stunned and intrigued by what she saw: All the
Mass Effect: Morning WorkoutKaidan returned to the small one-person bedroom he'd been assigned, officers' privilege, wanting to take a painkiller and sleep off his migraine. He grabbed the pill bottle and set off in search of a bathroom. It wasn't far. The men's room was sparsely decorated, but clean and Kaidan noticed a bay of showers stalls in the back. He'd definitely be taking advantage of that in the next few days. Decontamination might get a man clean, but nothing beat hot water and soap. He glanced at his reflection in the mirror, shaking his head at the strange shape his hair took when he tried to look professional. There were no tumblers by the sinks, so Kaidan fell back on the boyhood habit his mother hated most and slurped a mouthful straight from the tap.
