and all through the barracks
not a creature was stirring not even the ferrets.
The servitor stalked through the hallways with care
as though in fear they may be mauled by a bear.
The Space Marines all tucked in tight in their bunks,
dreaming of blowing the 'nids into chunks.
When all of a sudden there arose a great clatter,
I called an Inquisitor to look into the matter.
I ran to the hanger, Laspistol in hand,
and saw a red Thunderhawk with a single white band.
From it there walked a man clad in red,
no sign of a helmet atop his great bearded head.
He carried a sack filled with hundreds of boxes,
and for a moment my fear fell upon poxes,
but then he laughed, in a great 'belly-laugh',
knocking me down, out of reach of my staff.
And then in a time no more than a heartbeat,
he drew out a present and laid it at my feet.
He made his way past the security beams,
giving presents to soldiers who were deep in their dreams.
When he w
Demo's DayThe alarm bell clamored throughout the entire BLU base. It wasn't a RED Spy like the last time (we all know how well THAT went), but a caravan of three RED Scouts were running in, hooting and hollering. They thought they were hot shit, confident that their trio could swarm around anything that tried to stand in their way.Demo's Day5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
And they might have been right: any living thing that blocked them was greeted by a swift death via a flurry of bats. Unfortunately for them, our Engi's fully upgraded Sentry isn't phased by aluminum sport equipment.
I sit in the corner, back against a wall (someone's gotta show the team proper Spy prevention protocol), and wait for the little bunnies to hop right into our Sentry's killing zone.
"Let's go, let's go, let's go! Woohoohoo!" shouts one of them as he comes in from around a corner. The Sentry lets out a shrill chirp as it spots him, then proceeds to turn him into Scout-flavored swiss cheese.
His two living fellow Scouts become aware of the mechanized threat

One: Alpha-Wolf and the Training Beta:
February 10, 2151 C.E.
The sky above Tiger Hills, Virginia was only beginning to show the light of day coming in from the east, which was typical of winter. While the light from the sun slowly ate away at the darkness, several stars shone brightly in the night sky, including Rigel, Sirius, Procyon, and others. A very soft winter breeze blew in an easterly direction, picking up a few strands of powdery snow and dead leaves yet to be raked up by senior citizens.
Zack Hamilton rode on his electric motorbike down toward Storeker High School on the northeast side of town. Given the very low temperatures of the season - it was somewhere in the mid twenties - he knew it w
DeadlineDeadlines. Oh, how Langston Parker hated deadlines. They always seemed to crawl toward him at first, picking their way leisurely through weeks of plotting and typing and revising and retyping; but then they suddenly screamed, "BOO!" and leaped out from behind his computer monitor to torment him through the final weeks leading up to publication. His editors loved setting them. He was all too adept at breaking them.Deadline8 years ago in Horror More Like This
He leaned forward in his computer chair, squinting at the screen through eyes clouded from lack of sleep. Four empty mugs stood at easy reach around him, resting on stacks of discarded manuscript. Stacks that were growing taller with every passing hour when they should have been shrinking – the Day of Reckoning was a mere seventy-two hours away, and he still had fourteen chapters to write.
The bags under his eyes twitched, as though encouraging the lids above them to close. Parker blinked them into submission and rested his fingers on the keyboard once more. They spit out a s

You cringed away from your once-loving parent, throwing your bag over your shoulder before sprinting away into the darkening streets of your hometown. Your head spun as you whizzed around a corner. "If they don't want me, I'll have to go somewhere that someone does." You muttered quietly to yourself.'But where would I be wanted?' Repeating that question in your mind, you continued down an aimless path.
Several years flew by quickly. You were walking when- "(y/n)! We have to go now" Midnight hissed at you in an irritated tone as usual, glaring at you with a type of coldness apparent in his empty red gaze. He seemed to love doing that to you though you got used to it about a month after you joined.
You heaved a sigh and ran to join up with your team mates. Sure they were considered evil but at least they didn't

The voice carried authority. It was the voice of a pony who had the situation under control, who knew what she was doing at all times, almost laughter in the face of peril. But it was also an honest voice, one of compassion and loyalty, one whose softness came not from weakness, but from kindness. It was a magical voice. Most of all, it was a voice of royalty, and it spoke again.
"Twilight Sparkle," said Princess Celestia. "Pray tell, what do you think you are doing?"
In the middle of the large chamber, the unicorn pony Twilight Sparkle searched desperately for an exit, but the royal guards had already blocked them all. The question gave her reason to pause, and she wondered what she was doing. She didn't remember how she had gotten here, only that she needed to escape.

Lisanna had just gotten back to Fairy Tail a few months prior to the announcement Master Makarov had made. He spoke of a new guild member and the guild hall errupted with all sorts of chatter and gossip. The white haired girl smiled softly, sitting next to Elfman at a table with Cana who was drinking as usual. "Hey Elfman?" She asked softly
"What's up little sis'?" He sighed a bit.
"What do you think the new member will be like?"
Elfman looked down a bit. "We'll never know until he or she gets here."
Lisanna pouted playfully. "But big brother~ What do you think their gender will be?"
"All I can say is that if it's a man, it had better be a real man." Elfman sighed a bit more, his eyes straying over towards Evergreen.
Lisanna smiled a bit and stood up from the table and bid her brother goodbye, going to talk with Mirajane and possibly get some answers. Mira only smiled and told her that the new fella would be at the guild hall short
Creepypasta - GothitaI found the cutest pokemon in the grass today. It wears little white bows in its hair, and has the biggest baby blue eyes you've ever seen. I was just eating lunch when I heard a rustle in the grass, and there it was, hiding behind a tree and looking at me. I think it must have been shy, it was so adorable. I didn't even have to fight it, I just held out one of the cookies I was eating and it came running up and hugged my arm. So of course I had to bring it home. A quick search on the PC told me it was called a gothita. (I wish I had a pokedex, but those are only for registered trainers.) She's making friends with Chippy my patrat and Lilly my lilipup right now, I bet they'll be best friends. I think I'll call her Ribbon.Creepypasta - Gothita4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

A Toy R Us associates Christmas Poem
Twas some days before Christmas and all through the store
People were shopping for present galore.
Now by this time Kats Christmas spirits were feeling quite poor
From listening to bad Christmas jiggles and picking crap off the floor.
She was finding herself jaded to holiday cheer
Hearing daily professing of customers hate for the Yule and New Year.
Oh why? I did ask
did we do this stuff?
Wasnt giving the brats presents quite well enough
Why keep up this farce from year to year
Of a fat man in red with a very long beard?
The kids are all spoiled brats who come into this store
Their parents are rude and boorish as the store they do tour.
They treat me like dirt, wishing Christmas depart as fast as it can
And waiting on my line makes them less of my fan
I asked to the heavens how had we gone wrong?
To make the birth of my savior only about selling presents in throngs
Deep into my depression I slipp

The sun was setting. Another night was about to begin.
A purple, regal-looking pegacorn gazed up into the darkening sky, checking the feel of the world around her. It would be quiet, by the look of things. Quiet, starry, peaceful. There were but two things missing: the moon, and the right music.
Princess Luna looked back down again, gazing over a small band of assorted ponies that now surrounded her. Some carried a few woodwind instruments; others, strings; still others, percussion. A few performed basic vocal exercises, honing their collective tones. The princess gave a faint smile. Yes, everything was proceeding as planned. Tonight would be a fine performance to honor the rising of the moon.
"Hello, Princess Luna! Sorry I'm late. I was so busy reading I lost track of the time!" a unicorn with a dark purple coat and mane trotted up to her, a glow surrounding both her horn and a wooden pan flute.
"..." Luna frowned. She honestly disliked her elder sister's

The Pokémon looks up before answering with his same hardened expression.
I.. was created... in a lab..
I look at him fearlessly, and hold up a small wooden figure of a mew.
"That's only what they wanted you to think, Mewtwo... you have a mother, just like any other Pokémon. True, you look very different to her- but also very similar. She gave birth to you in an egg as any Pokémon does..."
The Pokémon looks confused now
a mother...? then what of my creation?
I feel a twinge of pain.
"Mewtwo... you once looked very much like your mother. What those scientists did... they only... deformed you..."
Mewtwo looks slightly saddened now, shadows under his usually angry eyes.
I do not understand... why do you tell me this?
I look at him and smile.
"It is your right to know who you truly are... Mewtwo... within the pokeball on my belt... your mother sleeps..."
His face suddenly looks shocked.

Colleen: Ahh It's so nice to be out here in Miami in this nice summer heat. And it's great to finally have a bloomin' break from going out on missions. They can get so boring.
Colleen's ears then pick up the sound of Hunter and Exile's voices. She looks to her left side, and removes her shades to see the two of them playing volley ball together. Hunter is wearing a blue speedo, and Exile is wearing a black speedo.

She was the coolest girl in school, all the guys, who weren't after her, wanted her. In fact,they desired her, she had the perfect body, nice boobs and a sexy ass,but you... You wouldn't let “them” get to her.
Everyday you followed her home, trailing her every movement, taking pictures of her, watching her like a hawk, you worshiped the ground she walked on.
"Ehn, Senketsu, it feels like someone is watching/ following me."
"Hai, I feel it too."
Making sure to not make a sound, you quickly snuck behind her and wrapped the rope around her neck. Snatching her scissor blade, you pointed it at her, a bit surprised by how heavy it was.
"If you move one inch, I'll cut you to bits." you snickered, softly running the scissor down her exposed stomach. "You're so beautiful Matoi-senpai!" you said, licking her cheek softly. She shivered disgusted by yo

Loss of Me
from Final Fantasy IX
lyrics by Joseph Blanchette
This is a tale, a tale of a man,
iron of glove, and blade in his hand.
Devoted his life to false faility,
duty or death, and blind loyalty.
This is the way, he remained to this day,
`til a young woman showed him the way.
Made him realize, he had his own will
his inner self doubt he was able to kill.
Ill give my life to thee,
my love for all eternity.
And though it may be hard to see,
You grieve for the Loss of Me
If we separate and then,
Ill fight a thousand men.
Just to be by your side,
with my courage and pride.
This is a tale of the Queens Royal Guard,
who over the years, her heart has grown hard.
Lives out her life, on the Queens behalf,
choosing the drawn out war beaten path.
This is the way, she remained to this day,
til a bold knight, showed her the way.
Made her realize, to speak her own mind
and the soul underneath was both gentle an
