A Peaceful Good-bye</a>
My cold body is kept warm from thick fur and my beating, exited heart. I stand in the middle of a green land; cities and forest surrounded this vast plain, forests in the East and city in the West, creating noise to the brink of horns and buzzards. I look up to the sky, the sun covered with clouds, open my jaws and let out a howl heard upon miles of creation.
Sounds grow louder from the cities. Alarms, sirens, bullets, ambulance's, and much more created a musical theme in my blood-thirst-ridden howl.
My name is Ormal. I am a she-werewolf. Searching for creatures like me, demons, as the humans call me. I knew that the sounds from the cities are panic from my threatening howl; I mean no harm to them. But as I also know, they will never understand that.
Centuries, humans have told stories of my kind. Demonic, uncivilized, just plain 'scary' creatures. I never understood this when I was a mere pup, tightly curled in the lap of the boy I called m
Late Night Groceries -part 1-Charles was distressed. He had just come from the grocery store, carrying the results of a successful ingredients trip. There were the eggs, the flour, the meats, the spices, and all other needed items that he would use for a week long of breakfast-sandwich-filled mornings. But of all the most basic of components, he completely forgot to pick up milk. How else could he cook the biscuits? Resort to water? Bah, that would never do. He needed that milk, or this whole trip would have been for naught.Late Night Groceries -part 1-5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
These thoughts and plans filled Charles' head as he made the return trip back to the grocery store; he had realized his error before he was halfway home, so he couldn't just shrug it off. His train of thought came back just in time to see that he was back at the super market's parking lot. A lone movement in the night caught his eye, the vague silhouette of someone walking toward the path he had just come from. The shape emerged into the light cast by one of the streetlamps: it was a long-hair

" goodbye," she repeated, but in a deeper, hard voice this time. There was silence again as she let it echo in her mind. After a few seconds, she groaned and buried her face in the sniper rifle she was holding as she leaned over a war-torn wall.
"It doesn't sound right," she wanted to complain aloud, but she knew that even though it seemed that there was no one around, she had to keep quiet.
"Did I just hear you say what I think you said?" said Matt, standing right behind her. "You going to leave me hanging here in this hellhole?"
Mattie sat up abruptly, a bright flush covering her face. So someone was there.
"Don't sneak up on me like that, Matt!" she shouted, flustered. Then she remembered that she had to be quiet. She mumbled, "This just helps me focus my aim."
Her long brown hair whirled when she turned to face him. She was wearing her red camouflaged uniform, zipped open to giv

The Aegis is a commander-type mobile suit with very advanced sensors and heavy attack power. It can transform into a mobile armor configuration armed with a "Scylla" 580mm energy cannon (which is later mounted on the GAT-X131 Calamity Gundam). This cannon is powerful enough to destroy even a spaceship. Additionally, the suit also features a hand-held 60mm beam rifle. For close-range combat, Aegis is equipped with 4 beam sabers. As these weapons are mounted on the forearms and feet rather than hand-carried, all four can be wielded simultaneously, in either mobile suit or mobile armor configuration. Like most other mobile suits, the Aegis is equipped with two "Igelstellung" 75mm multi-barrel CIWS in its head. Lastly for defense the suit mounts a single shield on its left arm and is equipped with the Phase Shift armor system.

Mounted in the Aegis's head are two "Igelstellung" 75mm multi-barrel CIWS guns.

Cavernous darkness bricks mortar and bars
Twilight all encompassing suppressing the stars
Entombed and isolated; or so it seems
A stranger approaches her presence is strangely serene
But is she
Friend or foe
No way to know
No choice but to trust her though
Don't feel quite whole
This is a lonely hole
And she's my only hope
But not unconditionally
She has a mission for me
I'm to perform efficiently
I intend to ascend her agenda
Only then can I be cleansed
Of this curse
Which drives old friends to disperse
And just flee and they scream
In terror of me and it leaves
Me feeling so terribly
But she replies to the pained pleas of others
Has contempt for me
Just using me to meet her needs
I'm beginning to regret our original meeting
I'm practically her slave wouldn't you be seething
An act of generosity for selfish reasons
But wait...she's taken a beating?
She's bruised and she's bleeding?

Main Turret Artillery
Tachyon Artillery: Tachyons are slowed down below light speed by a gravitation trap with rotating polarization (changing direction), that is the reason why the tachyon gun is U- shaped, and fires two pulses per shot. The tachyons want to get back over light speed, and accelerate after leaving the gun, when they hit matter they lose their strange energy and transform the matter into antimatter, and break through the lightbarrier. The destructive effect is because of this caused by the antimatter, so the usage of tachyon guns in atmosphere is limited to zero, also in space the range is limited due to the exhaust of ships engines and interstellar gas, this causes the red color of the pulses.
Effective range: mostly used in mid distance combat (100 000km), maximal effective shot was one Ls (lightsecond = 300 000km), but had limited effectivity, due to the high loss of tachyons
muzzlespeed = 0.5 c up to0.75 c

No. Not died. Murdered. By the Batterwitch, of course. She had been tracking them both for years before she made the move to strike, and had Rose killed.
For the first two months after that, Dave had continued as normal. The world didn't know--still didn't know--what had actually happened. According to the news, which was controlled by CrockerCorp, the acclaimed author had simply secluded herself from the world. And that's the story that Dave was supposed to believe, as well. Of course, they hadn't counted on Rose telling Dave what was happening, with her last bit of strength. Years ago, she had created a safe place for them to meet, impenetrable unless you knew the passcode. And only two people--one, now--knew the password. Dave and Rose didn't talk much outside of this space. Nobody knew of the relationship between the best-selling author and the famous director. Not even the Batterwitch. It was too dangerous.

A part of Joker missed the days where he could drop the Mako on planets so Commander Shepard could drive it through the terrain, albeit badly. The Mako drops and pickups always gave him something to look forward to between missions. But now, the new Normandy was just too big for such drops. The pilot resigned himself to just monitoring the ground team through his console. Joker brought up the monitors for Shepard, Garrus, and Miranda. Each one gave reports on vital signs, thermal clip usage, as well as an onboard camera. Where the hell Miranda had hers attached was beyond Joker nor did he care to find out.
The pilot forced out a sigh and leaned against his hand as he propped his arm up on the chair. The day's earlier embarrassment was still fresh in his mind. He'd been caught sleeping at the helm before, no one bothered him about that since moving about the ship was difficult for him. It was the whole getting caught mumbling in his sleep part th

I hide it so well
At times it even surprises me.
The damage these fists could make,
I'd break the door,
Shatter that glass,
"Why am I so angry?"
You may ask.
A deep, violent stare

Because honestly, really,
I don't know why.
It's just always been there.
It scares me some times,

Galadriel is the bastard child of Lancelot of the Lake and Elaine of Carbonek. Her mother used magic to assume the form of Guinevere and seduced Lancelot. Galadriel was named after the childhood name of her father, Galahad. She was sent to be cared for by her great aunt, who was the abbess at a nunnery, after she was born. Upon reaching adulthood she left the nunnery in order to pursue knighthood and follow in her fathers footsteps. She took on the name of Galahad and hid her identity by cutting her hair short, and when she met her father and demonstrated her skill, he knighted her. Once she reached Camelot it was revealed that Sir Galahad was destined to find the Holy Grail. She set out on this quest with two other knights and actually obtained the Grail, after which she was lifted into Heaven with the Grail, leaving the two knights behind. It is most likely due to this reason that the Fuyuki Grail was created and the Holy Grail Wars started. Galadr

"What’s going on?!" Scott yelled over the sound of the damaged propellers.
"Does it look like I know?!" replied Sergeant Turner.
He stood at the tail end of the Osprey and looked outside the opening. Where he had just seen the sun and dessert, he now saw rain and darkness. Suddenly the plane began to experience turbulence and shook violently. The sergeant flailed his arms as he tried to regain balance.

THE NINJA IN THE CLOSET
by Grace Ogawa
Mabel found the ninja on Monday morning when she was in a hurry and late for school. She had overslept, and was still in that heavy, fuzzy-headed state that usually clings to one after being woken too early. So when she flung open her closet door looking for a sensible dress that was not too crumpled it took her a few minutes to comprehend what she saw.
There was a strange man in her closet. An old man, judging by the wild mop of white hair on his head, dressed all in black with a strange green vest and extremely unfashionable sandals. He had what must have been modified biker's gloves (the sort with the fingers cut off) that had metal plates attached to the back, and (this was how she knew he was a ninja) there was a tight black mask that covered the lower half of his face and the tip of his nose. He wore a headband strapped at an angle across his forehead so that only his right, sulle

It was strange. Wondrous strange. Huddled together, they squeezed and pushed their way through the massing crowds of gentleman, ladies, children, milkman, merchants, beggars, chimney-sweeps, and every individual of every kind of trade either Envy or Edward Green could think of. The noise was intolerable for both for much the same but varying extremities of reasons: Envy's world had been virtually silent save its broken heartbeat for as long as he could remember, and Edward hailed from a tiny village in which the shouting of his mother was the loudest pitch his small ears were bombarded with.
This was too much to bear. Screeching women, shouting gentleman, merchants bellowing their prices and goods to chattering passers-by, beggars pleading for spare pennies,

"It feels so nice to give these feet a rest!" A young man with muddy brown hair and gentle, brown eyes let himself fall comfortably into the grooves of a nearby tree trunk. With a grunt of satisfaction and a quick puff of hair to blow his unruly bangs out of his eyes, he tucked his gloved hands behind his bandaged head and looked at his companion.
"Certainly, it's a nice spot to settle down for a while," agreed Galary: a youthful Pureblood Elf with light, flowing green hair. Her serene eyes picked out a mossy area nearby and she happily settled down on her stomach, tucking her arms beneath her head and meeting Garrow's gaze.
"How long do you think he'll be gone this time?" he asked, a slightly lazy look in his eyes and a knowing grin on his face.

She groaned as she picked herself up off of the floor and righted herself back onto four legs. With a yawn, she shuffled over to her dresser. Wiping the crust from her eyes, her vision eventually cleared to see exactly what she expected--frizzle from mane to tail, from head to hoof.
As was often her morning routine, she considered staying that way, perhaps even going back to bed. After all, who ever saw her up here besides Princess Celestia and maybe her family-
Wait, no. Things were different now.
Her room being lined with wood wherever she looked attested to that. She didn't spend all of her days in one of two castle towers anymore. This was a library. She had to tend to it. There were other ponies here. Other ponies she both cared for and counted on, and which returned the favor.

Better known as Vlad III the Impaler, or even better as Dracula, Vlad Tepes was a prince of a province in Romania when he was alive. He was known as the Impaler because he punished his enemies and breakers of the law by impaling their heads on wooden pikes that he placed outside his castle. He was actually a well-liked prince by the people, even though they feared him a little. Even so he was eventually betrayed by some of closer guardians and advisors and was killed. It is said that he made a deal with the Devil to come back the world, doomed to wander without a soul or true life forever.

intrigued with his looks
and how he reminds me

dropped stitches in a quilt

mismatched of the family-
we don't look familiar

related by proxy

chirped, "He was so nice!"

with his black & white grin-
the pieces within me
kindred spirits throughout,
separated by generations

because I know him, but

long before I was born,
too late when time would sag

My suitcase smells musty. Then again, it's been tucked away in the attic, unused and un-thought of. It was one of those things that was purchased for me, before I could even stand on my own two feet...a case bought for a day that I was never told about, and for which I could never truly prepare.
I fold my possessions into tiny cubes; all my thoughts, all my dreams, all my childish games of old are tucked into the corners of this dusty, grimy case, and I know they will never unfold in quite the same way. My carefree summer days, running about barefoot in the cool grass...I put those days in this case. The nights of winter, sipping hot chocolate by the fire with my best friend, laughing over some lame joke...yup, that's packed away, too. But it will never become uncreased, these memories that I stuff into this trunk. They will never be fresh again. They will grow old and wrinkled, monotone and forever fading.
