I opened the refrigerator in my home. The burst of cool air was refreshing in the summer heat. I quickly grabbed a bottle of water and a slice of cold pizza. I stood there and ate the pizza slice with the refrigerator door still open, letting the air hit my tanned legs. As I got down to the crust I grabbed another slice and closed the door. I walked over to the garbage can and threw away the crust then made my way to the small table in my kitchen.
"Hello, Haxorous," I sighed at the large green pokemon bending to walk through the back door. I smiled when I thought of all the training Black and I did to take my mind off N. In the process my little Fraxure had evolved. A week after I'd beaten Alder. I didn't have many challengers being Champion and Alder was happy not to be bothered anymore. I remembered what he had just said after I'd beaten him in battle.
"Well it's about time someone beat me," he had laughed, returning his B

Lies I hear!
They not only challenge my word,
but as well my trust!
They claim to be my comrades,
but how can they,
when I feel their hatred and glares,
piercing me in the back!
Lies I hear!
I am not swayed,
with your sickening sweet words,
or your petty gifts,
I hear that hidden tone in your words,
I see your smirk as I reach for your gifts,
do not treat me as a fool,
for I am not!
Lies I hear!
as it shall seem,
but never again!
For I have a lie of my own.

You have always been good a shielding your feelings. You were a stubborn girl ever since you were born and nothing has changed since then. When you started school at age five, you were stricken with anguish over being torn from your parents. Granted you got to go home everyday, you still sat by yourself and didn't talk to anyone. That was when you met Kiku Honda.
Kiku was shy himself, but was completely caring. He was a little on the short side, dark-haired with deep brown eyes that evoked a lot of soul. He convinced you to come out of your shell despite your stubborn tendencies. There wasn't anyway you could say no to him. You believed he knew that and took advantage of you when he could.
You were now a senior in high school, ready to graduate any day. Kiku and yourself had friends now for over twelve years, a time which seemed like an eternity. Over these long years, you and Kiku had faced many troubled times. You lost your house and he offered you a place to stay. His par

Inside the crystalline and ironclad steampunk megalopolis called Geargrind City, Donni Blackrum leaned on his employer's workbench and sipped strong coffee from an old oil can and looked out the window. Outside shadows walked towards the marketplace. The purple sky grew darker and shadows longer. Donni reeled in his wandering mind and focused his eyes inside on the many shelves which held cogs and gears.
"Orb cog, 5 centimeters " He said. His coat didn't keep the cold out even with extra layers of black grease caked on it.
"Iron cast " He said with his voice trailing off. He slipped his hand into an iron bin and pulled out a heavy cog.
"Don! Hey Don!" A voice shouted from downstairs.
"What!" He shouted back. He heard his boss walk upstairs into the construction area.
Nat entered the workshop and looked at Donni, then down at the machine next to him. He walked over and kicked it and a red sheet of metal fell off.
"This is just great." Nat said
Galkgrokst FirearmsGalkgrokst FirearmsGalkgrokst Firearms1 year ago in Settings More Like This
The first galkgrokst firearms were developed a little over 900 years ago by the engineer-philosopher Krashee Palkst Dzal. His patron, the Empress of the Unalloyed Will, commissioned him to create a more powerful version of the hurled bombs in use at the time. In his typical fashion, Krashee Palkst Dzal instead delivered an entirely new weapon system. He adapted existing grenades into conical projectiles filled with explosives. The projectiles were fired from rifled tubes, propelled by pre-measured explosive charges. These early weapons, though large and primitive by today's standards, led to tremendous changes in the nature of warfare.
At their core, the basic design of firearms has changed little since Krashee Palkst Dzal's day. Most galkgrokst weapons consist of a long, rifled barrel, with a magazine and firing mechanism located at the rear and a trigger mechanism located near the front. This forward placement allows the narrower end of a user's tentacle to depres

You're Not a Boy"I thought it would make the pain go away," He whispers, looking at himself in the mirror. He traces one of the red puffy scars under his chest where B-cups used to be. The skin is still so puffy and sore, but he trails it with feather-like touches. "You know, make me feel more like . me. A boy. But, now I just have these ugly, stupid scars.

Brooklyn, standing behind him, places her chin on his shoulder and wraps her arms around his waist. Her fingertips slip under the waistband of his jeans and of his boxers.

There's a myth of a figure-like man
Who wears a suit, has no face, and arms incredibly expands
A willowy man with tentacles for hands
Hence his chilling name "Slenderman"
He lurks in the fog and everywhere that's dark
He wanders around where your eyes cannot spot
Every child cries, because of the nightmare he's brought
Don't go near the woods, because that's where he spawned
Don't ever walk alone, that might only be a thought
In the mist or in the dark is were you'll be caught
He'll follow you unsound, to make your sanity decay
So never turn around, or you'll never be found

She turned on her side and readjusted her pillows for what was probably the hundredth that night. As weary as she was, sleep should have been an easy task. Unfortunately her mind did not want to cooperate with what her body was demanding. Her mind wanted to think about Earth and all the horrors taking place there, about Kaiden and the angry bruises on his face, about Palaven and about Garrus. She hoped her turian friend was alive and well. Shepard uttered a dejected sigh and pulled herself off the mattress. She arched her back, stretching the sore muscles on her lithe frame that protested against the notion of having to do more work. Perhaps a stroll around the Normandy would ease her mind. Shepard stepped into her slippers and made for the elevator.
The CIC had been eerily quit even if the hour was late. The silence a reminder of when the Collector's had abducted her crew. Shepard chased away the memories of the Collector base. She did not need another horrible thing to dwell on. The

The things for you
Many and few
Made me feel like I should have ran and hid
Tied a rope around the sun; dragged and rose it in the west
But you stood there
With a blank stare
Took all the stars in the sky; wrapped them as a gift
And all I found
Was that you made no sound
And your mood didn't even shift
I guess the fault falls on me
Doing the impossible
Wouldn't stop the inevitable
That this was never meant to be
All that is left are these ashes
And every promise
All the way back to our first kiss
Will exist as nothing but flashes

I miss your lips and I miss your touch
I miss the way you'd say my name
I miss our innocent little games
I still remember the day you died
I remember how I just curled up and cried.
Sometimes I think you're still around
Then I remember, you're buried in the ground
The whole world admires your bravery and all you went through
You always stayed strong even when you didn't have to
They tried to save you, I was sitting right there
They said you were damaged beyond repair
They told me to say my final goodbye
I hugged you and looked at you for the very last time
Your last words ever were "I love you, stay strong"
I tearfully sang you our favorite song
The monitor went flat and that's when I knew
I whispered "I love you darling, I'll see you soon"

But I can see ten feet through you,

You say you're so sure of me,
But you're just trying to find depth

No time to reverse.
There's no way to see when you're asleep.
You're at peace, despite being blind in new surroundings.

The KalkuhkalkThe KalkuhkalkThe Kalkuhkalk1 year ago in Profiles More Like This
The dominant order of life on the galkgrokst homeworld evolved from something not unlike our sea urchins: a central oblate body, protected by a bone-like shell, housing the major organs, with between three and five specialized tentacle-like limbs with their own independent nervous systems which do not really coordinate with the central body or each other. In most cases, one of these limbs has become specialized for eating and sensing, one for reproduction, and the others for locomotion. Land-dwelling members of this group have almost universally developed internal bone-like structures in those limbs used for locomotion.
The kalkuhkalk, the only real domestic animal the galkgrokst have, is, like most animals on the galkgrokst homeworld (and rather unlike the galkgrokst themselves), a member of the family described above. Its wild ancestors were social, highly aggressive herbivores first domesticated almost 20,000 years ago and subjected to intense artificial selection al
