I met a snarky ghost
who was prettier than most
her name was Sarah Kerrigan
and no one else came close
She could make herself invisible
and hide from prying foes
she'd spy on them for hours on end
how my love for her did grow
But one day fate swept down on her
and said her time was near
I cursed and howled and threw a fit
'Not a chance!' I yelled for all to hear
Oh Sarah, why'd it happen
Sarah, why'd you go
Sarah, how I loved you
but I never told you so
I put her in a dropship
in the corner of the map
to protect her and to keep her safe
from enemy attack
The zerg rushed hard
they came en mass
foul, smelly, ugly beasts
all pawing for her ass
But my defenses stood their ground
all through the day and night
battle after bloody battle
a grueling, gory fight
Finally the violence stopped
and victory was neigh
the mighty zerg had lost this time
with Sarah safely in the sky
But what was this?!
A voice cried out
'Help me, help me, someone, PLEASE!' Sa

The famed Commander never expected anything but the best. Shelby Shepard was a decorated war hero and survived one catastrophe after another. The scars on her body were merely badges she wore proudly as proof of her victories. Any battle she lived was another chance for her to fight, another chance for her to prove her abilities. Anyone who stood in her way would quickly find themselves with a fist planted firmly in their face. Shepard's forceful approach was notorious a certain reporter could attest to this.
When the Normandy left Earth in a hurry, it was sheer dumb luck that Specialist Samantha Traynor was one of those aboard. She never served on a vesseland never expected to serve under the famous Commander Shepard. The moment she discovered the situa
What Humans Call LoveI rolled around the cot I lay on, the stiff mattress springs threatening to impale my back. I hadn't had a good night's sleep since the doctors of Valerian's consort had removed the malignant tumors that had grown while Zamara had been present in my mind. Giving up on sleep, I sat up and opened my eyes, greeted by a flawlessly crafted walls hewn of soft, dark stone. Looking around, found a smooth, purple-skinned protoss towering over me. the pale sapphire eyes shone like gemfire in the dim light of the sick bay. I was unfamiliar with the face, but the feminine presence was all too recognizable. "Z-Zamara? Is that really you?" I choked on my words. Clearing my throat, I said, "I thought you were still in that Khaydarin crystal the dark templar downloaded you into. You have a body. H-how can this be? What about Ulrezaj?" As astonished as I was, it felt wonderful to have her presence near me. "I-How long have I been out?"What Humans Call Love4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

“Ex-Excuse me.” Mr Sato asked dumbstruck. He was pale in the face and was staring unblinking at Azula who still had her cup outstretched.
“Oh of course how foolish of me I can get my own.” Azula said acting like she was ignorant about what was going. She knew she should be reacting to attempt to poison her, but she was in a good mood and wanted to have a little fun first.
She leaned forward and calmly refilled her cup from the large pot.
“Oh Mr. Sato you have barely touched your tea.” Azula said as innocently as possible. “You should have more its very good.”
“Oh a no thank you I had for dinner this evening.” He stammered out. “In fact I should probably be heading-“

*Vellez asks "What is your creative process? Do you just research and then begin drawing when you get an assignment, or do you mull it over a bit?"
Hmm it usually starts with me getting the assignment since I spend my freetime drawing other things mostly (these days at least). As soon as I know what the client wants, I leave it alone for a couple of days and wait for ideas to sprout in my head. The rest is just craftsmanship, you know, drawing the stuff and everything. The real work is done as soon as I put down the thumbnail sketch.

I volunteered for glory,
So I could fight and win
I didn't care about the lives,
Our my committed sin
And now I find myself,
Facing the ultimate price
Losing my life,
And hers to be precise
Maybe I would be satisfied,
If she could win this game
But she faced death as well,
I wonder if it was the same
Did she think of me,
As I am thinking of her
Did she think of those moments,
I wish that had occurred
I wish you were here,
Helping me die
If I said I wasn't scared,
It would be a lie
I wish you could live on,
I wish we had both won
We would go back home,
And run off into the sun
That will never happen,
But I know I will see you again
And we can relive those moments,
Without the fighting and all that pain
So I guess this is the time,
To say those words too
So I will tell you before I die,
I have always loved you

How do you put into words the sweetness of the first kiss or the bitterness of the first goodbye or the hundred pinpricks of emotion you feel each and every time lip parts lip?

I wouldn't start with the first time nail bit into hip or teeth into shoulder or the first time you cried my name and I cried yours.

Why are you throwing rocks at puppies? It was an old man voice, deep and gravelly, so I didnt stop.
Because I want to, old man, I retorted and tried to sound mean. There was no warning before I heard a yelp and felt dirt under my shoulders. I tumbled over and realized the yelp had come from me. I lay on the ground and listened to my heart beat. That old man had pushed me down, and now he would pay. You asked for it! I yelled and grabbed the first rock I laid hands on, then jumped up to face him.
At first I could only see stars. Then I saw the lion. He was sitting like a giant cat, and his tail twitched around behind him.
Dont eat me! I yelled on instinct and dropped my rock. He licked his lips.
Why not? I heard the old man voice ask. Was this a trick? I looked ar

Breathe in, breathe out
Don't be afraid to scream
Don't be afraid to shout
If you dare to dream
Then don't you ever doubt
Don't you ever doubt
When your world is turned on its head
Be strong, young one
For your journey has just begun
If you give in to fear and dread
Then you let your enemies win
Don't let them get in
Don't go easy, don't settle for less
Because if you know what's best
You'd take the path of most resistance
You have to fight fire with fire
You gotta take a chance
Take a risk or two, lay it out on a wire
If you just go through the motions
Then you're not truly alive
If you want to survive
Then you need to swim
Swim against the current, let your heart be your guide
When you reach your destination
You'll look back at your trials and tribulations
Don't be afraid to smile, you made it through
You're a fighter, tried and true
Life has many hurdles and obstacles
But at last you know now that nothing is ever impossible
Warframe - Heavy Bond Ch.8She had been on Infested extermination missions before, and they had always been under extreme pressure – the orders from command to not let even a single Charger escape intact, the worry for her squadmates' and her own survival, and of course the slavering, omnipresent horde of mutated, mutilated monstrosities that wanted to tear her limb from limb.Warframe - Heavy Bond Ch.81 year ago in Sci-Fi More Like This
This mission, however, was different than that.
She felt no fear, no pressure, no anxiety. All she felt was the mechanical, constant swinging of the heavy Gram, the joy of seeing yet another disgusting horror explode into nanomachine-infested giblets, and an explosion of fury upon being attacked or seeing her comrade attacked.
She stopped midswing. She thought of the Tenno, this alien... thing, that had captured her, as a comrade?
Midway through the thought, she felt a yank – an Ancient had hooked her, and, pulling her off her feet, began dragging her towards a ring of Toxic Ancients that would make short work of her if she let

When he was little, he was 26 now, he'd read books about disease, warfare, and dying of natural causes. They had been labeled as fiction, but his mother had been nervous about him reading them. Zach always believed that death was once not controlled by the government, that war and disease had once existed.

Everytime I get my hopes up
They are shot down with a bleeding bullet
So I sit behind a locked door
In hopes that someone will find the key
I wish to tell you everything
And for you to just hold me while I cry
But I am afraid
Afraid that you will leave me alone again
Im afraid that you will walk out of that room
Pretending you never knew it existed
that's how it always happens
No one knows what to say, So they walk away
I want to believe you'll stay with me
Too many times Ive swept up the shards
So when you find the key that will give my release
Be prepared for what you'll uncover
Ill be sitting there, waiting
With my box of secrets resting in my lap
Just dont open it unless you're ready
I don't want to be let down again

Cant express my thoughts
So much emotion
Losing my mind
Trying to find solid ground
Paper is so blank
Ink is so full
I cant think
No feeling left inside
Dont stop moving your hand
Let it out
Tell the world how it is
No holding back
Theres no way out
Everything is crashing down
Faster, harder than an avalanche
Clouded thoughts filling my head
Poison to my heart
Bleed it out
Hidden box of secrets
Swallowing me whole
Swept by a toxic lust
Im not your pretty prize

It was a dark and stormy night! No, wait, it wasn't stormy yet. That happened later. Well, let's just say it was a dark night and leave it there.
Two whole days had passed since we had left the Cottage. We'd seen some interesting things already, like a forest of sticks and a peaceful meadow filled with animals. We'd followed the light of the Really Big Lamp and Radio's navigation skills (if they really were real) to this place; a creepy forest of darkness.
Being a lamp, I hate the dark. That's why I was so glad my light was there to shine in the forest, showing everyone where to go. Of course, I was a little bit angry when Kirby told me to turn it off, but he had a good reason. The battery was dying, and without it there would be no way we could keep going. Sure, we can move on our own power for a little while, but we need some power source to keep us going forever.
So, there we were, in the dark and spooky forest, no light, running low on power, no light, in need of shelter, and no li

In the morning she wakes up to the scent of frying meat and cheese potatoes. Her face and abdomen ached, and she decided to get ready before she went down to eat. She wanders around until she finds a bathroom, a few doors down.
'Argh. Why does my stomach hurt so bad? Was it the pasta? Nah, I practically ravish their food supply whenever I come over. What's wrong? Ugh, I hope I'm sick today.' _______ wonders to herself.
She sits down and she almost screamed.
'What the hell, did I shit myself?!' She mentally screamed waddling around the bathroom with her underwear pooling at her knees. 'What is that?!'
