... Ten minutes from the Angel Falls city landfill...
It had not taken very long for the AFPD's Special Crime Unit to assign a trio of squad cars to head over and check out what they had heard from the guards and security forces over at the juvenile detention center and at the state penitentiary, since both buildings were in close proximity to the landfill's location. Reports of flashing lights, intense bursts of fire and energy, and powerful vibrations felt in the air and seen in the skies over the landfill had to be investigated as quickly as possible, an

Question Hour: Episode #1: Felicia from Darkstalkers
The room was lit with light from all corners of the room, several people sitting around a round table. Two of them were dressed in suits to make them look like interviewers, the other, however, was a young Catgirl with long blue hair and beautiful green eyes. She wore no clothes, only having her body covered by beautiful snow white strips of fur. She was calmly sipping warm milk from a cup, smiling at her interviewers with a smile that said "I'm happy to be here".
Interviewer #1: Welcome, Ms. Felicia. It means a lot to us that we are able to have this interview with you.

It smells like old people.
We silently take the elevator to the second floor; her room is 205. Mom has the key, so she opens the door. The apartment is so empty. No little old ladies with white hair and a waggling crooked finger.
There's still newspaper on the floor by the door. Mom and I remove our shoes and put them on the newspaper, lest her ghost throw shoes at us. Or, maybe, hit us with a broom. She never did it to me, but Mom says she used to.
The pantry is full of food; mostly Fig Newtons. We always brought her Italian cookies when we came to visit, but she'd make us eat them while we were there. We would insist they were for her, but what good were cookies without someone to share them with? Italian cookies, Fig Newtons, and tea.
The cookie jar on the counter is full of tea bags. You could never have Italian cookies and Fig Newtons without

~It's getting so lonely inside this bed,
Don't know if I should lick my wounds or say woe is me instead.
And there's an aching inside my head.
It's telling me I'm better off alone.~
Turn off the Light by Nelly Furtado
Late at night, when the silver moon was hanging high in the sky and the crickets were chirping to that soft tune that played in the middle on the night, the soft sounds of rustling bed sheets sliced through the thick silence that cover the atmosphere like a heavy blanket. Following the rustling bed sheets, came a small quiet moan and the quiet sounds of bones popping. A sigh was u

Do you hear that?
.......That music that plays?
Is it just me that hears the lonesome tune?
Taunting music, mournful music,
The song echoes in my head.
It beckons me to sing along to that depressing sound.
That melody that leaves a feeling of emptiness when it ends...
Haunting me afterwards making me want to hear the tune again.
That tune is The Elegy of Emptiness.

Eviscerare is the furthest thing from political, seeing such ideologies as one big tired joke. Thus he finds this towering amazon amusing, like some quaint novelty (similar towards Jane Smith). He'd probably get a kick out of pushing her buttons, just to see how far he can push her. To see how far she'll go.
