It was true, the van was nowhere near as flashy as a DeLorean, and Stephanie was sure that someone was going to point it out. New employees were always disappointed when they learned this, and there were two new employees today.
Stephanie was standing in the cavernous garage, listening to the approaching sound of two sets of footsteps in the corridor outside. Clay and Cerie Jackson had been hired in a hurry, because for the past month her group had only contained four people, and it needed six before they could set out on their next expedition. She had not yet met either of them, but there were certain things about them that she already knew, the most obvious being that they were somehow related because they had the same last name. The footsteps paused for a moment, as Clay and Cerie rounded a corner and entered the garage. Stephanie sized them up.
Clay and Cerie wore matching Hawaiian T-shirts, cargo shorts, brand-new white sneakers, and a pair of those hats which used to be worn
Velociraptor vs T. RexThe Velociraptor matriarch's rumbling stomach reminded her of how desperately she needed food. Her flock had been stealing through the forest all night, meticulously searching the shadows and undergrowth with their glowing eyes, but they had found nothing that would slake their hunger. Nor could they smell anything but the forest's usual musty odor. The matriarch considered giving up the hunt and bedding down for the day, but she knew that starving raptors could not sleep. Nor could they get along, for hungry raptors were quick to turn on each other. For the sake of her flock's cohesion, they had to find food before the sun came out.Velociraptor vs T. Rex4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The forest's chorus of chirping crickets and croaking frogs was shattered by a shrill whine followed by a reverberating thud. These sounds excited the matriarch. She knew the cry had been the death call of an Edmontosaurus and the thud had been its collapse. Wherever a large dinosaur died, there was a mountain of meat, more food than her floc

It is the beginning of my eighteenth dry season, the ending of my seventeenth wet season and a few days shy of my day of first breath, when the call of a human ship shattered the serenity of the my forested lands.
The tattoo on my right arm marking my ascension into adult is healing over and the scabs were slowly breaking off, though the bruising still remains. I bump it hard against the edge of a dead tree when the shout echoes through the woods and startles me. I am underneath that dead tree pulling out small plants, plants that only grow in shade and only grow in the most nutritious of soil, when I buck and crack my already sore arm against that damn tree trunk, hard as rock from the aging process. I am attempting to gather herbs in the forest, as shaman apprentices are supposed to be doing, or at least for the youngest of the students.
The tattoo is not torn or damaged, but it bleeding again as I feel with my fingers, spreading out my skin,

While everyone was enjoying the party, Earl on the other was enjoying the buffet. Well, sort of.

"Ha! Back in the prehistoric times these thing were as big as the humans' pet dogs."
"Nature has done a cruel thing to these shell-fish and shrunk them to the size of my thumb."

Alex sat silently on his cot, carefully watching the spectacle before him. He didn't know why they gave him a cot... He never needed to sleep. Although just agreeing to everything was much easier than explaining to the crew of the Normandy why he did not need sleeping accommodations. After he and Commander Shepard toured the brand new ship (because it was just as unfamiliar to her as it was to him) Alex decided to take up residence in the cargo bay. He picked the corner that was to the right when he exited the elevator. The crew gave him a cot, a foot locker, a table that hooked to the wall, a personal computer and his own omni-tool. He enjoyed the quiet, open, emptiness of the cargo bay. It made him feel less like he was stuck in a spaceship and more like he was back in New York Zero when he was the only living thing for miles, save for a hunter or two.
The peace and quiet did not last, however, becaus

"Back then cave people were too wild and stupid to have much fun with, but now they have evolved into these....smart critters."
"Well, at let they were polite enough to let us stay in there home until we find a new one," Fran said to Earl with her fists on her hips

"That's a strange refrigerator they got here", Robbie said as pulls out a can of Lemon-Lime soda.
"It's so quiet and there's no live animals in it. Just drinks, cold food and some dead meat."
The reason why Robbie said that the refrigerator is strange to him is because in the prehistoric the times, anthro dinosaurs have refrigerators with live creatures living in them.
Just then Serena came in with her face all flushed from seeing Robbie in a towel,
"Oh!I'm sorry" Serena said not be embarrassed
"I didn't know you were in there, Robbie."
Robbie looked at Serena with his face a little bit red and asked, "So, does it bother you that I'm in a towel?"

I hear everything too loudly
I am falling apart
I grew up too fast
I am still a child
I cannot stand still
I see every detail
I cannot remember what I'm doing
I talk about dinosaurs and doctors and darkrooms
I cry for no reason
I do not have the ability to cry now
I see the world differently
I wish you saw it like me
I have a puzzle to put together
I wonder if you'll help me
I hear a song and must sing it
I see a picture and must take it
I see a world, a broken world
I want to fix that, too
I want to play
I need to work
I close my eyes and fall asleep
I remember everything
I forget my head
I stand in blue light
I see the world in shades of blue
I am lost
I have been waiting for you
I am the empty child
Are you my mommy?

Leeds is the first awake. Shadows of his dreams still echo in his eyes when he paces into the kitchen and startles her.
"You're too quiet." She smiles.
He doesn't. "Did you sleep?"
"I couldn't," she says.
He just nods. She pours him coffee. He drowns it in milk and sugar. They welcome the morning in companionable silence.
"I wanted to be there for him." It's a whisper. He stares at the coffee mug in his hands, seeing something very different. "I saw him get hit. I wanted to be there so bad. I would have gone in, but Vance held me back. Probably saved my life.

Draw nigh with your arrows dipped in poison.

Let your deceitful eyes meet mine.
The time has come once again.
The time to reveal your true nature.
You live to shed blood, my "friends".
You live to watch me suffer.
Come now, and pierce my heart once again,
with words that slaughter my very soul;
that cause my life to bleed out inside of me,
with rivers of tears that seem to have no end.
Come. Stare at my suffering,
with pitiless eyes that know no empathy;
with lips shaped in joyous smiles.
With laughter and joy, dance around my pain.
Your venomous words penetrate my being.
I stumble from all the pain of your poison.
Light and life is slowly drained.
Shrouding me in darkness
Have I pleased you now my "friends"?
In the midst of my pain, I see you laughing.
Surely my suffering was not in vain,
For you are happy.
The earth is made drunk by my blood.
Blood shed to satisfy your evil thirst.

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 shadows are getting longer, the light is getting dimmer. The big light is going to rest, leaving a fiery trail behind it, until the world goes dark and the millions of eyes of the sky begin watching.
Now, it is time to wake up.
The moutains of sand are still warm when they leave their refuge, under the distorted trunk of an old, decrepit tree. The ground - which can look almost as white as the big light under it's hot wrath - is now a blueish purple, and the silver circle, the one that brings the comfort of darkness, takes it's rightful place among the eyes of the sky. It is now that they are active, and when the hunting begins.
They touch each other, in an act of intimacy that is not allowed for anybody else. Making soft calls, they reaffirm their relationship as monogamous partners - in this endlessly vast landscape, there are not many others to mate with anyway. This is their first year together though, and fortunately she is already about to lay her first clutch of eggs. The ha

you started off as half a portrait

spreading its continents across an ebony wall.

deep irises set in a startling halo of rime.
a palm-sized card charting the cartography of human desire.
in hours where sea surges to sea,
when the schizophrenic world forgets which
side is up and which is down
there the captain sits, absently spinning an ivory globe.
he feels cartesian planes sliding under and
mountain ridges gently scouring the tips of his fingers
under the pressure of the muffled wind and
he still searches,
a mantra carving and recarving in his head.

Giganotosaurus was hopping around
South Patagonia like a big playground
When Spinosaurus charged with his jaws open wide
and took a chunk from Giganoto's hide
Giganoto shot a roar that blew all the mikes
But didn't expect that ol' set of spikes
that belonged to Stegosaurus's mighty tail
When Utahraptor, a blur of feathers and scales,
started mauling the shit out of Stegosaurus
when they both got chomped by the Spinosaurus
But before he could take his kill back to his shade
Dilophosaurus popped out from his glade
And threw his venomous spittle and then just like that,
he nailed Spino's eyes with a rat-a-tat-tat
But he ran out of loogies and he ran away
Because Argentinosaurus came to save the day

You let out a yawn and shook your head. It felt nice and very peaceful now that the humans weren't bothering you to do anything. Yet, this funny feeling just spawned into your mind again...the fact that you stood up for the alpha.

THE COLD AIR in Baron Rorke's study did little to calm his nerves. He was expecting visitors this night and they were not the best of company. A shiver of dread ran down his spine and he spent most of the twilight hours staring out of a large window which stood behind his writing desk. It was amazing, he felt, how quickly a man could become attached to a life of luxury; only to be made painfully aware of how easy it was to lose it. War was always a frightening thing, even more so when one had the knowledge and sense to realise that it was no longer an exercise of glory, but a simple festival of bloodshed and cold murder. In war it did not matter if you impaled a stranger on the edge of your sword, such a thing would be punishable in any city or country, but in times of war it became an accepted norm. If the man in front of you wore a different colour, then it was alright to kill him, it was alright to rip him apart fo
