Phantom slowly edged his way around the corner. A soft, freezing wind swept through the outpost, but the flames from the burning oil tanker just barely stayed alight. Three enemies were ahead. Two were trying to warm up using a flare in a futile attempt to beat the cold. The other one was locked out of his cabin and was kicking and punching the door like he was having a childish tantrum. Phantom pulled out a curved knife from his pocket. He held the blade and aimed it at the enraged Russian. He Bent his arm over his shoulder and launched the knife. It swirled through the air before finally hitting the Spetsnaz soldier directly in the side of his head with a gory crunch. The other two couldn't see him because the corner of the cabin was blocking their view. Phantom swiped a Smoke grenade from his suit. He pulled the pin and hurled it at the remaining two targets. The grenade exploded in a Smokey cloud. The Russians looked around confused. Phantom held an L118A Sniper Rifle equipped with

Both were having a dragon-made soft drink called Drinko, with Shooter having his favorated cream soda flavor and Ratchet enjoying his green apple flavor.

The yellow lombax looked at him. "Why are you saying that, buddy? I...see you all the time sad and depressed. Why? Is something wrong? Someone hurt you?" Ratchet spoke whilst worried. He placed a hand on Shooter's right shoulder. The dragon looked back at him while replying "I think there is someone whom I have...forgotten. Whom I miss, but I don't know who. I don't know who's missing in my life.". Suddenly, the computer of Apheleon made a low noise and spoke "SOS signal recieved." "An SOS signal? WHo could've sent it?"

"You got Soul!" Black Star laughed.
You blushed immediately. You have always loved Soul, but never had the chance to tell him. He was always on missions with Maka.
You two were both shoved into the closet by Black Star. You both stared at each other awkwardly, and you both were squished together in that small closet.
"Heh heh... Well this is awkward." You said.
"_________?" Soul asked.
"Well I just wanted to say that I lo-" You cut him off by kissing him.
You broke away. "I love you too."
Suddenly, he pushed you against the wall and kissed you once again. And your tongues fought for dominance. You put your hands through his hair. He licked your neck and you groaned. You bucked your hips onto his when he nibbled your ear and you both moaned so loudly that you both could be heard.

Vocaloid belongs to Crypton so no copyright intended
You were the new vocaloid, created to be the elder sister of Miku Hatsune and Mikuo Hatsune. You didn't seem to be fond of your family; maybe it was because your sister was the biggest diva in the world, or maybe because you were created as the anti-social Goth for vocaloid who wasn't meant to get along with anyone. You didn't sing when others asked you to, so they all thought you didn't have a voice and was just based of your little sister Miku .But they were wrong, oh so very wrong
You sat in you dark purple and black room, playing with your (h/l) (h/c) as you tried to think of a song to sing at the Vocaloid festival. At first you weren't planning on even going, but your sister forced you, more like blackmailed you, into going. And of course she was even making you sing at the festival, to prove you were meant to be a vocaloid.

Eyes like two huge harvest moons,
Glowing with curiosity,
Dilated to the soft tunes.

Perhaps they're heavy and harsh,
The songs that fill you,
Flood you like a marsh.
I see you glancing,
Eyes like two lively lovers,
Dancing to your music,
Eyes like your little brother's.
Or maybe not,
Yours are lost and ghosted,
Kept alive by the music,
That keeps your heart roasted.
I see you longing,
Eyes beseeching to belong,
Like two puzzled toddlers,
Trying to appear strong.
Or maybe not,
Maybe you actually are,
You must be,
To keep yourself this afar.
I see you trying,
Eyes aching with need to hide,
Like two setting suns,
Yet never full of pride.
Or maybe not,
Perhaps you are proud,
You should be,
For standing out in a crowd.
You see me gazing,
Eyes enchanted by your unique beauty,
Like two stunned rabbits,
But you just blush cutely.
Or maybe not,
Maybe you feel it too,
I don't want to be unrequited,
Unrequited in my love for you.

Hiccup sat at the head of the table. Astrid sat at his right and Stoick on his left. He and the elders were listening to the other's explanation as to what they found.
"Well, Hiccup, you were right. There is something funny in the air," Fishlegs was saying. "While we were out on the boat, my hair stood on end."
"Metaphorically? Like there's something foreboding in the air," Astrid asked.
"No, I mean my hair literally stood on end." Fishlegs took his helmet off and pulled a piece of hair straight out.

Some key points:
It would require that countries participating ban parallel import for any copyright holder who wants it. That is, if a copyright holder says no, countries would have to block your ability to purchase legal and authorized products in one country and import them into another. This is the so-called "grey market" which should be perfectly legal, but which many companies would like to block so they can price things much higher in some countries.
It would require criminal enforcement for certain cases of circumventing DRM even when there's no copyright infringement, going beyond existing treaties even when there's no copyright infringement. There are some exceptions, but rather than allow countries to determine their own exceptions, it defines the exceptions and actually says countries cannot go beyond those.

Nick wasn't fond of birthdays, much less his own. They just weren't anything special to him. The only reason he sometimes let himself be dragged to a birthday party, was so he could have a reason to get drunk off his ass.
He had fully expected the hick to whine and beg for him to stay home instead of going to the casino, but Ellis had seemed unnaturally fine with it, and that little fact had been bugging Nick all day.
Walking up to the front door Nick let himself into the house. The moment he stepped over the threshold Ellis' voice rang in his ears.
"Dun come in the kitchen, Nick! Stay out for a lil' while!"
Nick's brow furrowed as he started making his way towards the kitchen. No way was he going to listen. For all he knew, Ellis had set the stove on fire.

And I'm separated by a dam

Constant tug towards bliss
Because I know how you would feel

I'm sorry I'm not who you want
But I can't keep lying to you
Feels like I'll have to pull a stunt
Just to get across what's really true
I'll never be a proper young lady
Wearing skirts with lace and twirl
I'm not going to lie and be shady
It's not that I don't like being a girl
I actually think I love it too much
Because it's driving me up the wall
This craving for a different touch
Tells me what I am after all

That I got to watch Reaper shells burning in space outside my window.

Bind them in chains of depression.
Drain their lives and leave them empty.
No life and now soul.

A tool for war!
They are our weapons of destruction.
Use them how you wish.
Torture them and hurt them as much as you want.
When they get ill let them suffer from it.
Lock them in the dark room of shadows.
At night rape them and leave no hope in their heart.
Their tears will be our water.
Their pain will be our strength.
Their demise will be our redemption.
Our power will be their death.
Our wills will be their rules.
Our lives will be their graves.
They have only one purpose and that is to die.
They do not deserve kindness and love.

The SR-2 Normandy has officially been recovered and is in-flight to Vandenberg's dry dock facilities. While the return of the ship to it's full status is now at this time a matter of getting the work done and "buffing the paint" according to Normandy's pilot Flight Lieutenant Joker Moreau there is some concern about her final crew member on board. The Normandy secretly featured an unshackled AI named "EDI" who also utilized a synthetic human body originally created for a VI Infiltrator by Cerberus. Admiral Shepherd has informed ANN that every effort is going to be made to return the AI to optimal capacity and that he considers her a member of his crew just like anyone else. Alliance tech specialists assigned to the case who spoke on the condition of anonymity later stated that they were sure EDI would be fully functional in no time.
