It came to the time of Myself and Buckrider going on the one-to-one training session of aerial combat. Of course, like all 'newbies', I was nervous but Buck soothed my intentions of dropping out.
"Now today young femme, your time has come to show me your true spirits and moves of aerial combat. you look the job to do something well" He stood tall looking me up and down.
"I require you to transform now so I can check up on your alt mode, see if you have anything wrong with it, I.E cracks" At these words I react and, Like and obedient dog, transformed at his will. He inspected my well being in my Favorited alt mode, and back then it was indeed the first type of euro fighter.

F-58 Hammer SpecificationsF-58 Hammer Specifications3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
The F-58A Hammer is an 6th+ generation ultra-long range, hypersonic heavy fighter designed for air dominance and rapid strike missions. Its design is based off of the proven F-33A Rapier II hypersonic multirole fighter, and thus shares much of its technology. In addition to the proven technology inherited from its predecessor, the aircraft also brings new technologies to the fighter world. The most notable of these technologies include SynVision, which is a form of synthetic vision designed for this, and other higher performance aircraft. It allows unparalleled situational awareness when compared to convention cockpit designs along with reducing RCS and aerodynamic drag. In addition to SynVision, F-58 also uses a more advanced variant of EO-DAS designed just for this aircraft.
Other advanced technologies include DAESA (Distributed Actively Electronically scanned Array), which places multiple AESA panels in various places around the aircraft to provide 360˚ ra

Pegasus while low-observable relies primarily on staying low and fast to avoid enemy detection. To achieve this, Pegasus uses variable bypass turbofans to optimize low altitude performance, along with having an extensive electronic warfare and countermeasures suite built in. For more dangerous missions, semi-conformal jamming pods can be carried.
To protect itself from airborne threats, Pegasus can carry up to 4 AIM-182 ALRAAM or SRAAM air-to-air missiles internally. A retractable 25mm GAU-12 Equalizer gun turret is mounted under the fuselage to clear any hostiles around a landing site. A rear ramp mounted M134 Minigun or GAU-19 GECAL 50 can also be installed.

Black – true black – is the absence of light. Darkness is defined by what it is not, by the lack of something else. When we say a black hole, we truly mean that; black. Blacker than black. An absence of not only light, but of time, distance, anything.
The night was scary when I was little. I hated the dark, but couldn’t bear to sleep so long as the light was on, any light, burning on the other side of my eyelids. I used to have nightmares about dark things in dark corners, shadowy figures with shadowy fingers trailing along my spine. I always woke up cold and fumbling frantically for the lamp, but the aura of light just made the shadows deeper and I turned it off quickly.
Black holes are dead stars. Graves. Tombs that bury light, bury it so deep, swallow entire suns, planets, galaxies. Dead stars take all the light with them like rich men spending fortunes on alabaster monuments and marble headstones.
There are four unmarked graves

The box was a gift from her, but he haven't yet seen what was inside. Lifting the lid, he found a small snakeskin bracelet, dyed a deep blue. This bracelet looked really old and tribal. It had threads of yarn dangling from it, each end with a colored bead.
'Probably used for snake worshiping', he thought. His girlfriend did share a lot about Cambodian history during the time she was away.
He unclasped the bracelet, and put it on. It fitted on quite nicely, and Noah was pleased with it.

"What's the point of studying in another city if I don't get a few souvenirs?" Sarah had said to her, before her expedition to the shopping mall, to get something to bring home once she had finished her course at the college she was studying at. Now she wished she had listened to her, since in the hour or so she had spent there, she hadn't managed to find anything worth buying. Just more generic stores, something she had been to far more than enough.
She sighed as she headed down an alley, away from the more modern areas, where only a few small family-owned stores remained, most of them driven out of business by the attraction of the large mall. However, she stopped as she reached one particular store, hidden away far out of the sight of most the regular mall patrons but just close enough to make sure that it at least attracted some customers, and headed to

Deep within the collective multiverse, there exists a single entity of unimaginable power, one that even the most powerful of gods within any world cannot destroy. It is known simply as The Orb of Desire, or just The Orb to some simpler folk. It bounces between the limitless universes randomly, never returning to the same one ever again. But other than that, what else makes this small glass ball all that special?
It grants wishes, that’s what.
Wishes that can bend reality to fit The Orb’s holder’s greatest desires. Its mere presence helps influence its holder to tell his or her deepest wishes, which the Orb will then grant. How it grants the wish, however, varies. In fact, some might even call the results random. Either way, things will change because of them. The reactions of the wishers vary just as much.
Maybe they’ll notice the changes. Maybe they’ll be the only ones. Heck, maybe they’ll be the only ones oblivious to the changes. It’s a spo

The smell of the air before it rains,
The smokey rain clouds rolling in
And the way the sun always peaks through
Or makes the clouds glow.
In this world,
There's so much to love
And, truely, so little to hate.
And the things that we hate
Are insignificant, small, and weak.
I've hated so deeply
These past few months.
My pain and rage consumed me.
All I felt was burning fire in my gut.
That fire swallowed my spirit,
My personality, my friends.
Declutter your mind,
Someone told me,
Relax and you'll notice
All the beatiful things around.
And now, as I breathe deep,
I realize how much I missed
The smell of the grass
The happiness nature gave me
The peace of a strong gust in summer.
There's so much to love
And so little to hate.
So, why did I,
As someone of strong will,
Let the things I hate
Conquer that which I love?
Betrayal, Lust, Love
Rage, Pride, Sin,
Pain, Hatred, Envy.
These emotions tore through me like rapids,
All in a few months time.

My view of Werewolf Biology (update)Physical QualitiesMy view of Werewolf Biology (update)2 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Human Features: Werewolves don’t have any distinguishing features that would mark them to any observation, casual or otherwise, while in their human form. They look like anyone else with their normal abnormalities or blemishes that normal humans can have. They can have piercings, tattoos, and even scars or missing limbs, and all of these extra features are shared between the forms. Legends such as equal length middle and index fingers, eyebrows growing together and other such abnormalities are no indication that a person is a werewolf and just as likely to happen to a normal person as a werewolf. It’s all genetics based. Most legends prescribing such features were wives tales invented by frightful people and usually used to persecute innocent people in darker days that either an individual didn’t like or entire towns didn’t.
Werewolves do tend to be more toned looking, but this isn’t always the case as a fat werewolf is just as po
