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.

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
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

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.

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.

The air was silent:
a powder keg soundtrack
sitting on a camel's back.
There were dead flags
on poles or lying in ashes.
Smoke seeped through the earth
on every horizon
like the breath

after a fierce campaign.
No one was left
to inhale the dust and ash.
Their bodies were dormant
and they dreamed their faith.
And a Dandelion stood stout
in a field of grey and soot.

In the next scene, our heroes, the Road Rovers are enjoying a spectacular summer vacation in the beach of Miami Florida. Colleen is seen with a pair of shades and wearing a leotard with the British flag patterned on it, resting peacefully on a beach chair with an umbrella.
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.
Colleen: Blimey! I thought those two would be out surfing or something! It's hard to get some shut eye out here with all that bloody noise!

RegicideThe goddess of the sun sat idly munching her royal dinner at the head of an unnecessarily long dining table. Laid out before her were silver plates decorated with foodstuffs hailing from the furthest and most exotic corners of Equestria. Celestia liked the royal dining hall, although it was a little opulent for her tastes. Vast as it was, with baroque paintings and carvings decorating the walls as well as the supporting pillars which stood on either side of the long, rectangular table. A set of golden armored pegasi flanked each of the doorways and they blended in humorously with the decorations. So unmoving, one might easily mistake them for statues.Regicide4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

“This just… isn’t working. I mean-… Listen-… I love you. I’m never going to say that I don’t, but-…”
It was already over, and he knew it.
It wasn’t the first time he’d dealt with a breakup, but it was the first time that it hurt.
Dreyden Blazer hadn’t had a single thing ever turn out right in his life. Twenty-five years of absolute failure, constant disappointment, and an impressive amount of rotten luck.

Ever since he was born, Dreyden believed, it had always been his destiny to be nothing more than a screw-up. Because that’s what he was: a mistake.
