2012 in 50's-world, everyone in the US wears hats. Men wear suits, women wear dresses or cute pantsuits. T-shirts and jeans or sweats are something nobody older than a teenager would be caught wearing. There are a lot of uniforms. Everything is very clean and often metallic or gleaming.
The Cold War is of course going on, and China, the Soviet Union, indeed everything from East Germany to Vietnam is the Red World, a unified entity which includes some parts of Africa, including the Red Congo. (Cuba, on the other side, is Capitalist and more-or-less democratic, if corrupt). Everyone in the Red World dresses the same, drives the same standard car, and reports for interrogation four times a year. (Except for the Inner Committee. But to get to that position on must have taken the interrogation drugs dozens of times). Although a "standardized" Socialist culture is promoted, the Chinese are still Chinese, and the increasing tendency of

Hello my name Is John Riley, the log you are about to read accured on a planet I am sad to say is no longer around, and after reading this you may thank me for that. I do caution you though. The events you are about to read happened. This is a final Warning if you are a lover of tales with cute little bunnys and butterflys, this is not the story for you.
I remember that day like it was yesterday, I can still feel the claws of that monster ripping my side open and I still can hear the gun shot I fired to blow its head off. Yes these are not good things to remember but I am afraid it will haunt me until the day I die. I woke up one moring, it was a sunday. I already dreaded getting up wanting to sleep the day through as I was off from work and relaxing. The only thing that got me out of bed was the phone ringing. I pulled myself from my bed and picked up the phone that sat on the coffe

Of Night-Terrors Terror
Cody was ripped out of her sleep by an ear splitting shrill. Her heart pounding fiercely; immediately she rushed to the scream she knew all too well; her little sister Minda.
"What's is it!? What's wrong!? Minda!?" Cody called as she rushed to her little sister, who was pressed against the wall that her mat cattycornered, clutching her blanket and teddy bear as if for dear life.
"The monster, Grape! The monster was after me!" She said sobbing hard.
Cody took a deep breath and climbed up onto the mat with Minda and hugged her, "Oh, Minda it was just a the bad dream you had again."
"But Grape!" she said looking up at her with tear streaked eyes, "I saw it! It tried to grab me! It was all slimy and gross and "
"Minda " Cody said reassuringly, "It was only a bad dream. There's nothing in this place that could come in and hurt you. We have Dorochet, Martel, Roa, Alexander Even Renagade now!" She said naming off her comrades, "We even have

Species: Genetically Evolved Vampire Bats
Size: Between 20 and 35 meters in height, 25 and 40 meters in length . Sporting a wingspan of 40 to 50 meters.
GDF File: These giant bats stalk the nights of North America, they look almost like a cross between a raptor and a bat. Having long legs that end in blunt claws, large pointed ears that can fold back against the skull, scaly skin without any hair, slit like reptile eyes, pointed reptilian face with sharp dagger like fangs and a long tail with flap like webbing tracing it down to the tip. On land they run on two legs like a predatory dinosaur, but they can easily switch to all fours and become very agile on the ground, but loosing a bit of speed. These beasts are considered one of the most dangerous non-kaiju monsters, for their shear numbers alone, but they are far more sinister then might first be realized. Every few months or so, these bats fly out and kidnap people, flapping off into the black of night where t

long ago, before God created humankind in his own image. dinosaurs were his joyous creation. however the overgrown reptiles grew arrogant and began fighting for the supreme species. displeased by this he sent a meteorite to earth to bring an end to age of dinosaurs and start the development of the creatures that would dawn on his image. Yet, he still loved and had plans for the dinosaurs. only the wisest, most humble, and pure-hearted of the dinosaurs were spared of the reptilian genocide. after 65 million years of underground hiding and subterranean life, the dinosaurs decreased greatly in size but gained superhuman intelligence and a lot of other human physiology, as well. (erect standing posture, five fingers including an opposable thumb, etc.) yet retained 75% of their former lizard features. eventually, the Anthrosaurs will join the humans in peace and harmony, and the reptiles have been blessed in Christ's Salvation.
Umbrella Corporation VehiclesVehicle #1---AriesUmbrella Corporation Vehicles7 months ago in Profiles More Like This
A tank with no cannon that has a massive shield in the front that can ram through any obstacle in its way. The reason the Aries does have a cannon is because the sheild is so big that the cannon won't be to move around it. The shape of the vehicle is about the same as a Wraith except it has treads and 5x the boosters to destroy its target in one hit.
A short yet powerful mech that has the pilot lay down to properly operate it. The Cancer is a speedy and strong weapon that is not to be messed with. It has the ability to jump very high and pounce on its enemy, and has two weapons in the left arm. The right arm has one gun that sprays the Flood parasite at the target and another that shoots out the TG-virus, and the left arm shoots a laser that is similar to the spartan laser but its shot can be continuous for about 3 minutes after overheating. The left arm is slightly larger than the right arm due to its need for storing energy to power th
Luciferian Empire VehiclesVehicle #1---CarnivalLuciferian Empire Vehicles7 months ago in Profiles More Like This
Tank treads, 2 massive tank cannons, 3 missile launchers, 4 plasma cannons, 2 minigun turrets, 2 gauss turrets, 1 EMP blaster, indestructible armor, and 2 grenade launchers, these are what describe the vehicle known as the Carnival. Each weapon equipped to this creation of Hell has to be operated by a different person, and the driver can only steer the vehicle. Everyone who is operating a part of the tank(even the driver) is out in the open to see pass all the epuipment, which makes them susceptible to enemy fire. The vehicle's few disadvantages are when the driver is killed, the tank is at a stop until someone enters the pilot seat, the weapons(except the cannons and missile launchers)can be blown off by a single shot of a sniper, and the tank is incredibly slow. The Carnival can ride on any terrain with perfect traction, and if on the ice the tank goes a bit faster. If a weapon were to be hijacked by an enemy, the vehicle will completely deactivate unt
Dreamer Chapter XIII can't move...Dreamer Chapter XII2 years ago in Settings More Like This
I feel that if I move even the slightest inch, I'll die!
Not only that...
I look at Seb, Max and Elle for a brief moment.
What is he?
What is this sense of dread?
I can't help but shiver, this black monster is engulfing me, and I can do nothing to stop it!
The Shinigami looks down at me curiously, as if observing an insect.
"This is strange..." his voice is soft, yet feels like a blade.
"How are you awake? Are you not redeeming yourself?" he seems to be shocked.
What is he talking about?
"What do you mean, redeeming myself?" I can barely speak up.
The Shinigami remains silent and observes me for a moment.
"So you don't know..."
The Shinigami gives me a twisted grin, I clench my fist in response.
"We have to run." Seb interupts my thought process.
"If we stay here, we will die..." I can almost feel the fear in his voice.
"Whats the plan?" Elle keeps her voice low.
I avert my eye

The chamber door opened noisily, and armed men entered the chamber, cornering a Deinonychus. There was a man following right behind them, he was unarmed. Suddenly, after a crack of an electric power surge, the lights went out for roughly a minute, and screams were heard. The lights had come back on, and the unarmed man saw that the armed soldiers had been killed.
Then the lower leveled staff member had heard a machine gun going off and then a scream. He dashed outside only to see the main chamber guard with his throat slit open... and then the man looked at a vent with a door swinging and a tail going into the ventilation system.
The Breach had only just begun...
Al Gore's worldAnother retro one. One even older than my Hundred Days writeup, so this makes it one that's been on my system for FIVE years. Semper Fi's being held up for three years is nothing compared to this. Anyways, it's a take on Al Gore's winning the election.Al Gore's world2 months ago in Settings More Like This
This world's divergence is the 1998 killing of Justice Antonin Scalia during an attempted bombing of the supreme court. The bomb was done by a quite fringe radical group and failed in it's intended goal of killing the entire supreme court. Within six weeks, the vacancy was filled by by Jose A. Cabranes, the first Hispanic justice of the supreme court. The end result of this, was a Bush v. Gore decision that went 5-4 in favor of Al Gore being the new president. This was accompanied by narrow democratic victories in Florida and New Hampshire. The reason for this is because the heat brought upon the Clinton Administration made Gore have to campaign harder and take a new tack -- he campaigned as promising to continue clinton's legacy but wit
