The True Emperor of Mankind"Hold your tongue, heretic!"The True Emperor of Mankind8 years ago in Science Fiction More Like This
The empty room shook with the impact of a ragged figure's body into a
sturdy and ancient rockrete wall. A burly man wrapped in a thick
leather coat and bearing the mark of the Inquisition easily hefted and
tossed the smaller person. Dust from centuries past were rocked from their
resting place and fell over the man-handled heretic. He gave out a series of
coughs before pleading, "Please! Please hear me! I know the truth!"
The squirming man tugged helplessly at the Inquisitor's arms, but
could not get even the slightest bit of relief from the hold. The
Inquisitor drew his face closer to the heretic; his long angled face becoming
feintly clearer to the helpless man as once hidden scars and blemishes
"What 'truth' could you possibly know that the Inquisition does not
have access to?"
"I know the truth about the Emperor!" The words barely escaped the
heretics lips before his body was flung some twenty feet into yet
another sturdy wall. His

Fionna vió como todas las animadoras salían ya cambiadas y maquilladas del vestuario despues de un ensayo, dejando el espejo libre. "Ya era hora, ya empezaba a pensar que romperian el espejo" pensó con arrogancia. Entonces se dirigió hacia el espejo y se vió, naturalmente, pero no como iba vestida en ese instante, con su ropa de animadora y el pelo recogido en una coleta alta, sino con una especie de gorro con orejas de conejo que solo dejaba ver su flequillo y una camiseta azul basica. Giró la cabeza en diagonal como señal de interrogación. Su reflejo se movió igual. Eso demostraba que era un espejo y no un video o una broma. Entonces se fijó en el fondo del espejo; no era el vestuario de chicas del instituto, sino una habitación hecha de madera, más que de madera, como si hubiese estado construida dentro de un arbol. Que raro. Para comprobar que de verdad era el espejo, alzó la mano

"Three men can keep a secret, if two of them are dead." Benjamin Franklin, Poor Richard's Almanac
In the days following their discovery, James, Sirius, and Peter tried to act as if they did not know Remus's secret. When Remus had to inevitably visit the Hospital Wing, to eat his daily ration of raw meat, they pretended that they noticed nothing unusual. They were careful to never mouth a word alluding to the truth about their friend, except in the privacy of their dormitory. They also continued to treat Remus exactly as they had before. But one must remember that our heroes are only twelve years old, and secrets leak out of children like light through white paper. After the second time Remus nearly caught the three of them talking about him, they realized that they could not avoid telling him what they knew for much longer.
James proposed that they approach Remus on the coming Sunday. It was their day off, when they often lounged on the grounds, explored the castle, or

As he sat at the main bar of the Echo 3 Club, one of the numerous taverns in Coridan’s sprawling capitol, Garadun took a sip from his tumbler of Andorian ale before fingering the leather thong around his neck. He drew it from beneath his shirt and held the small jewel dangling there, looking at it thoughtfully. To him the flawed, five centimeter-long crystal wasn’t much more than a token, a thing of sentimental value because it’d been a gift. But to the galactic population at large it represented enormous wealth and power because this rare mineral was vital to the heart of most starships. It was dilithium, something Coridan had in abundance.
The sliver in Garadun’s hand was too small and too filled with imperfections to be of any industrial use. Similarly flawed crystals were sold as jewellery all over Coridan; it was in fact where his had come from. He didn’t find its semi-translucent, pinkish colour very appea

Curiously, you looked up at your cousin as you walked toward him.Japan x Reader: Time2 years ago in Romance More Like This
Since you lived with your cousin, it wasn't unusual for him to walk into your house because he owned the place after all. He took you in after both your parents died two years ago when you were about eleven years old. Since then, it had always been the two of you living together. However, this was the first time he had such a calm yet urgent tone when bringing over a guest.
"What is it?" You asked him and turned your attention to the Japanese boy next to him. He was about your age with short black hair and pale skin. His dull brown eyes were downcast and looked blank as he stared at the ground. You noticed he was wearing a coat that was several sizes too big for hi

She had to stop herself from skipping over to the bathroom. She cleaned herself up and actually skipped out of her room. It felt amazing to be done with school. No more stress, no more tuition bills, no more tests. Amelia smiled, plopping herself down in front of her computer. She opened it up, getting on Skype. She texted Arthur, "Can you get on Skype?"
She bounced in her seat and drummed her fingers against the edge of the desk as she waited for an answer. He finally texted back, "Yes."
