Trapped 1Alex J. Mercer watched the bustling city life below. It was midday- lunchtime for most- and everyone was out. Cars honked, buses rumbled, feet below, subways thundered and screeched along, people chatted on their cell phones, exhaust entered the atmosphere at sickening rates- causing the air to be thick with pollution and an ashen cloud of smog to hover over the life below; but then again, that was typical city life.Trapped 12 years ago in Settings More Like This
Alex had to give the people credit. If they could endure the cold glares and rude retorts from ill-tempered city dwellers and the unbearable stench of overflowing sewage after a heavy rain, they had to be tough.
Damn stubborn, too- to stay here after all that’s happened.
This part of Manhattan was safe and, for the most part, untouched by the viral outbreak that erupted from Penn Station a year ago. It was called the Green Zone for a reason; armed guards were spread out here and there, ensuring that any "unwanted guests" would be terminated on sight.
BelovedThe children ran about their playground laughing and playing. Ivan walked through their play gates with a smile. When the children saw him waving they all grinned as wide as their little faces would let them. "Uncle Ivan!!" They cheered playfully as they ran over and surrounded him.Beloved3 years ago in Settings More Like This
"Hello little ones! How are you all today?" He asked happy to see their excited faces.
"We're really good! We're good children right, Uncle Ivan?" one laughed.
"Yes.." he chuckled softly. They where so cute. "You're all good children."
They all giggled as they ran about pulling him around. Asking him to push them in the swings, or to play games like tag or hid and seek. The children all loved Ivan dearly. That's why they dubbed him Uncle. He'd come in once every week and play with them. Sometimes tell them stories. Tons and tons of stories. From happy to sad. Funny to scary. The children loved them all so much. As the clock struck three, all the children sat about Ivan with big smiles on their small faces.
Lukas's Story: Chapter 1To tell you the truth, I hated being a human. All my life before these events, I've never felt comfortable as a human. I have always felt like I was in a cage, like I was never meant to be human at all. Deep down, I felt like I was supposed to be something else, something that is not infected by the corrupt, dark nature of humanity. Bottom line: I needed away out if there was one. Luckily, that way has happened, and changed not only me, but my life, forever. This is where my story begins.Lukas's Story: Chapter 12 years ago in Profiles More Like This
My name is Lukas. I am 17 years old with autism. I also had clinical depression that left me moping around most of the time at the time. If there's anything I loved, they would be two things: dragons and heavy metal. I loved both things with a passion. I have always dreamed of being a dragon, carefree and no trouble with anything. As with metal, my favorite band was slipknot. I always had them and a few other bands I liked blasting whenever I needed it. My room was filled with

One day, after a bit of training, she grew tired and sat nearby a tree. "Ah, this looks like a nice place to rest," she said.
Soon after, another Pokémon trainer walked by and noticed Georgia. He had blue hair and a red shirt. Although he saw her, he was quite antisocial, so he didn't make the first move. Georgia, however, knew this opportunity. Thinking he was a Dragon-type trainer, she walked on over to him.
"Hello, who are you, and do you LOVE Dragon-type Pokémon?" Georgia asked with a sly grin. The other trainer just simply responded, "I'm Layne, just a wanderer around here. But my favorite Pokémon type is Grass, if you're wondering."

“The strange will walk alone”
-Silver “Madigan” Hatter-
Silver’s family actually ran a successful Haberdasher Shop in a local town. It has become quite a tradition to pass the ownership down to the child next in the family line. Around Silver’s childhood, the family ran into financial trouble. As a result, Silver’s father Gray was forced to shut down the shop. While job searching, Gray managed to land a job as a servant at the “Schnee” family manor.
Silver became Weiss’ childhood friend (Which explains why he’s the only she’s ever nice to at Beacon). Gray has been working on good terms and the pay was sufficient to keep a roof over their heads. Gray wants Silver to bring back the shop to its former glory. However, Silver had another dream… to become a Hunter. Weiss then persuaded her father to provide the funds he needed to go to school. After Gray discovers his son’s wishes, he leaves him in the care

Post Mass Effect Technology Era and the Formation of Galactic Alliance
Stretching a time from late 2186 to 2250, the Great Migration was commonly recognized as the period of time when the starfleets came to aid Earth against the Reapers return to their homeworld by FTL or other conventional means of commuting. By Quarian help, some larger battle fleets were renovated into starships to cope with a sustainable residency. While most have left the Sol System, some choose to resettle themselves on Earth or closer clusters like Tuchanka to help the locals rebuild their homeworld. This caused a shift in galactic powers for a moment, until the Galactic Alliance was established.
The Galactic Alliance, established in year 2193, is an inter-stellar organization between the former Citadel Council, the Systems Alliance, and the Perseus Consortium. The three major players in the field combined their resources to host aiding programs and agencies

The Presidents: Abraham LincolnThe Presidents: Abraham Lincoln2 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Introduction and Early Life
Today, Abraham Lincoln is seen as one of the greatest presidents of all time. He is seen as one of the most inspiring and marbles figures in American history. Yet, these were not his intentions. Lincoln was born in a cabin in Kentucky. He mainly spent most of his youth taking products by boat to New Orleans. In 1830, his family moved to Illinois and at that time he entered a career in the military, politics, and law. Lincoln then affiliated himself with the Whig Party and after several failed attempts to enter Congress (one in which he famously debated Democratic incumbent senator Stephen A. Douglas) he joined as a Republican. In 1860, he had become a leading national figure, despite being mainly regulated to state politics, and ran for the Republican nomination.
The Presidential Election of 1860
The union was in chaos. Four major political parties rose up in the election of 1860. After three ballots at their convention in Chicago, the Republican Party nomin

Okay let's discuss Shroomy and her completely un-endearing un-cheerful and un-attractive state of affairs. Firstly you must realise that Shroomy's life was far more dismal than most. Those at her school find her (in their own words) a 'skanky, ugly, creepy little bug-eyed weirdo'
You see when somebody isn't what you would consider 'normal' people have a tendency to ridicule or be afraid of this person. Shroomy being no exception to this, she would spend her time at school sat alone on a table muttering strange things to her only friend who was named 'Scarlett' and she could be seen only by Shroomy. Whilst the rest of the class formed their own, chattery little groups consisting mainly of people who would consider a scruffy, bug-eyed girl constantly whispering scary things to herself a strange sight indeed, therefore nobody wanted to talk to her.

The Guidelines Of WarWritten about the firsthand accounts of Navy SEAL Petty Officer First Class Marcus Luttrell during Operation Redwing in Afghanistan on 28 June 2005, showing the uselessness of the Geneva Conventions when the opposing force do not take after the Conventions themselves. Three of the four Navy SEALs on his team were killed in action due to the vote on letting three goat-herders go, instead of killing them, after they were discovered. The choice was based on the fear of the liberal media labeling them as murderers and resulting in imprisonment of four of our finest service-members; the choice got MOH-recipient Michael P. Murphy and Navy Cross recipients Matthew Axelson and Danny Dietz killed. Luttrell was also awarded the Navy Cross for selflessness in the line of combat.The Guidelines Of War4 years ago in Settings More Like This

Mikes fellow SWAT members were on the roof trying to pull their close friend and his family up. Mike and his family were wearing harnesses attached to the rope to keep them from falling. Mike's wife, Sarah, held her daughter while Mike applied pressure to her wound.
"It's going to be alright," Mike assured them. "I promise, I won't let anything else happen to you!"
