Bioshock 2 Short StoryAndrew Ryan mentioned me once, in one of his voice diary recordings. The Alpha series Big Daddy, crouched by a Gather's Garden, crying. Epsilon, that's what they branded me, the last of the official Alpha series. They stripped me of all my memories from the surface, and bonded me to a poor little girl, an orphan, and forced a Adam Slug in her stomach, making her a little sister.Bioshock 2 Short Story5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
I loved her like my daughter, though, and I was her Daddy. Mr. Bubbles she'd call me, though all Little Sister's called their Big Daddys that. No one got near her, and I was critically injured many times for her, and even died twice, but with the miracle invention called a Vita-chamber, I'd come back over and over. However, that wasn't the same for my little one.
The Splicers overwhelmed me, pinning me down momentarily, but it was too late once I broke free, and Oh god I can remember it so clearly, the bastards killed her right in front of me! They killed my little one, and broke our bond. Oh god, it
Toy Store: Night of the BallToy Store: Night of the Ball3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The burgundy bead rolled about along the veins and contours of the feather which served as Armand's finger. It was an odd clash of colors, the crimson serving to mute rather than accent the faint flavor of the tart liquid. Yet any concern for the color was proving secondary to the more glaring notion that tugged at the toy's mind. Why not wine? When he was human centuries ago no one would have given a second thought to him sampling a bit of Merlot; but his boyish demeanor he had come to be trapped in since his death and curse now proved a great inhibitor to things he used to enjoy.
Though he cannot blame the serving toys for this slight, they weren't created with the ability to know or empathize with his laments. Not to mention there was the issue of his handicap preventing him from explaining. Still, it would seem he wasn't alone in being denied this comfort. &

Put me to sleep in your arms
Let me sleep as long as I need
Sway me gentle untill my eyes close
Sing for me
Sing me the lullaby of love
The lullaby you used to sing
Kiss me tender, like you once did all night long
Stroke my hair like you always did when I was down
Hold my hand like you´ve never held it before
Dance with me as if your feet were on fire
Hold me tight and don´t let go
Untill my eyes close
And I leave this world...

-General Tips for Competing in an OCT
Believe it or not, being a host isn't as great as you might think. Being a judge is no better. Often times people create an OCT without putting forethought into what they're committing to, which is why so many OCTs usually end up abandoned or never getting off the ground.
Qualities for a Good Host
+While anyone can make a group and start up an OCT, here are a number of things you should consider before doing so.
-Time: Being a host requires having lots, and lots of free time. You may think that the biggest aspect of time is spent on judging, but that's far from truth. Hosts are constantly answering questions, making sure things are submitted to correct folders, posting updates, organizing events, planning, and dealing with members.

I turned my head to see my boyfriend, Gilbert Beilschmidt. He was running toward me with his arms flailing in the air.
"What is it, Gil?" I asked.
"Gilbird's gone missing!" he said, panicked.
"Oh, no! Do you want me to help you look for him?" If it were anyone else's pet, I wouldn't have bothered. But it was Gilbird, and he was just so cute that I had to find him-- and he was my boyfriend's bird, after all.
Gil nodded. "Ja, thanks."
So we looked. And looked. And looked. We looked all through Gil's and Ludwig's house and property, but there was no sign of the little bird. After about an hour of searching, Francis and Antonio came bursting through the front door.
"Hola, mis amigos!" shouted the Spaniard.
"Bonjour, our Prussian friend!"
I straightened up from looking under the couch to look at the duo. "Hey, guys. Now might not be a good time to hang out with Gil. Gilbird's missing."

No, not a normal day at all. Alex Kiriyama opened his eyes slowly and did an inventory check. Feet, check. Legs, check. Kidneys, not stolen. Arms and hands, a little sore from being slept on but otherwise fine. Hair? He sat up and ran fingers through the dyed spikes. Well, at least that could be counted on to stay the same way no matter how much he got tossed around. That much he knew was true - being thrown around, that was. The numerous bruises all around his body told him his kidnappers hadn't been too gentle.
Kidnappers? He finally looked around. Houses and buildings, but not like the ones you'd see around England. He himself sat on the short, prickly grass of a small, neatly kept lawn.
Alex sighed and reached up to loosen his tie, but found that it wasn't pulled tight at all. His hand moved faster; fingers knocked against something hard. Hurriedly he felt the object around his neck, then paused as realization sank in.

Zainteresowałem się mistycyzmem gdy pojąłem, że zło egzystuje nie tylko w człowieku, ale przybiera własną formę, takich choćby demonów.
Obrały mnie sobie kiedyś za cel. Ludy wschodu wierzyły, że człowiek sam tworzy duchy które go prześladują i dodają problemów. Rodzą się z czarnych myśli, zachowań i mrocznych stron naszego charakteru, pogłębiając bruzdy wywołane błędami.

I hunger for your touch

I hate the way I love you
With every beat
Of my wretched heart
That loving you keeps me alive
