Remember that time, brother, when we were young? When we took off before I was even though high school in your beat-up old whatever-it-was without so much as a goodbye note, dreamed of travelling the country?
There was a place we stayed at, the night before we finally gave up and turned around. It think it may be my last clear memory of you.
It was called the Beaumont Farm.
The petrol gauge has been sitting below empty for the last hour, and Carl Levine doesn't bother trying the key again when the engine splutters one last time before falling silent. He shivers in the cool air as he opens the door, pulling out his phone and cursing when he sees the reception bar empty. The last station he saw was before he turned off the highway two towns back, the last car before that.
The letter from Alicia lies folded in his inner pocket, as it had come in that innocuous envelope. There had been no return address, postmark almost illegible under a dark smudge that covered half the front

Heard You Were Sick
(Disclaimer: Inception and all related properties belong to Christopher Nolan.)
Something was off. That much was for sure. It took Eames a moment or two to realize just exactly what it was, and when he did, he felt silly for not noticing it immediately.
It was silent.
Eames was late for work, and no one had said a word.
"Where's Arthur?" he asked immediately, a smirk playing on his lips. Ariadne was the first to pay him any mind, and all she did was shrug. Was the stick-in-the-mud point man late for work? He hoped he was. To be able to mock his failed perfect attendance would be so sweet he was sure it would give him diabetes.
Yusuf strolled in then, carrying his daily cup of coffee. "Ah, morning, Eames," he greeted.
"Hey, Yusuf, do you know where Arthur is?" Ariadne piped up, apparently as curious as the forger.
"I think Cobb's on the phone with him right now, actually," Yusuf responded, sipping at the coffee before grimacing. It was sad how he was

Really, I mean, you ever heard an interesting story that started on a sunny day with mild cloud cover around an hour or so before dinnertime?
Exactly. Moving on.
The air held a coldness that seeped through brick and stone. It crawled through flesh, freezing blood in icy veins, chilling bones like a slithering ghost in the blackness.
...but not so cold that it was a snow-storm. Cotton candy floating down from an inky sky, shining like diamond eyes in the starlight as soft flakes swirl and dance on feather-light feet in the breeze...
Not quite the image we're looking for.
Rain lashed from the depths of the cruel heavens, wind whipping from the starless smothering blanket above. Thunder roared in fury, cracking alongside his bright lover as she streaked her fire to the lonely earth.
Yes, lightning is a chick. It makes sense. Hair of white-gold light from her glowing moon-face, gown of silver thread spreading down her lithe figure, hem sweeping against the c

Article: #: Time
At their own great expense, explorers and pioneers in artificial dreamspace made perhaps one of the most important discoveries since the first sedatives and injection systems were developed. They discovered that time can be stretched.
Part 1: Our Perception of Time in Real Life.
This is due to the fact that the mind functions much more quickly in artificial dreams than natural dreams or during waking hours. This discovery also lead to a growing number of hypotheses in the scientific community. These hypotheses center around a basic assumption: If the mind is smaller, it functions more quickly, therefore time is stretched, or 'slower.'
This is based on the argument that if the brain is smaller, so is the mind, as there are brain nerve cells to accommodate brain function, and, the mind of the creature requires less brain cells to function.
So, not only is the world much larger for a small animal or an insect, but time is much longer for

On the Sea Beneath the SkyGolden flickers danced on the pale faces of the circle, hushed whispers wafting out from the gathering by the glowing coals. It was the third night of the coming-of-age, the no-longer-little ones from each of the surrounding tribes taken out together in the openness of the untamed world. There were a few in the group that stood out, discernible even in the thick coverings of the night. There was Jiu-yeil, son of the carpenters, impressive form already bulging with strength and muscle more fitting of a man twice his size. The brothers, Senniare and Elieten of cloth-maker, sat donned in simple but the finest of all their travelling robes. And very slightly apart from the throng of a dozen others was the quiet Meiella, orphaned as an infant, niece of medicine woman.On the Sea Beneath the Sky2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

"Very well sir, shall I set up the- sir? I'm receiving a transmission message from Mr. Nick Fury, shall I put him through?"
Tony sighed turning away from his scientific holo-screen, " Why not, not like I have a option when he call anyways.."
" Stark, we have a problem."
" Does S.H.I.E.L.D. ever not have any problems? And who gave you my number?"
"It's Asgard related, thought you might want to take a look at it before I talked to Dr. Banner..."
" Oh him? He's always interested in jobs and assignments, he's especially helpful as long as he doesn't get too frustrated."
Tony had just finished his home/office repairs and was reopening Stark Tower with a bang. Since it was party at his tower it was public, and it was expected that Thor attend, along with the rest of the Avengers.
It would be the first time since they all gathered together since

"I think we should give him time alone." They had all been trading off taking time with Feliciano. The others nodded as they all walked back to the living room.
Kiku looked up from the manga he was reading and asked, "Is he any better?"

3 hours had passed since anyone had seen Tony or his beautiful hanger on.
Thor didn't like that woman, she was pretty, beautiful even, but something was familiar about those emerald eyes.
That smile was familiar...
He decided to head to down to Loki's cell, just to check on him. He didn't want his brother ruining the party.
As he walked toward the main elevator, Stark was adjusting his tie about to walk out.
" Tony, I was about to..-"
" I just got done bringing Loki down some drinks.. Tony grabbed Thor by the shoulder, twisting him back to the party... -he loves those right, with the little umbrellas in them?"
Tony patted Thor's back, " He's fine Thor. Relax, let lose! Maybe I can show you some dance moves you can take back to Asgard with you."
Thor was still worried but didn't want his paranoia to get to him, tonight was not night for dealing with his meddlesome brother, if Loki showed his face, he would deal with him accordingly.

He slowly pushed the door open. Beside him, Russia's face betrayed no sense of worry or fear, despite that there was a good chance the monster was inside this room somewhere.
"Lead the way," Russia said. "You're the one who wanted to come here."
China nodded and took the lead. It was slightly disconcerting, knowing that Russia was behind him, but he managed not to show any unease.
He stopped in front of the table and deposited the pile of papers Italy had grabbed as he was escaping among the many other papers covering the surface.
"Explain," he demanded, turning to face Russia.

"I wonder how Sora and Kairi are doing," Riku thought. He had come to the island during sunrise to reinforce some of the new wooden planks that had become loose. He looked like a junior carpenter as he wielded the hammer in one hand and with nails in his teeth. "It must be pretty hard on both of them. I mean, if I woke up one day and found myself as a female..." A slight chill traveled down his spine. "They're probably getting used to it by now..." He had just finished using the last nail in his mouth to hammer down another board when Kairi showed up. Riku immediately knew something was up by the way her face seemed to sag with exhaustion. Her hair was flattened on one side as if someone had shaved off the spikes halfway across her head. "What happened? You look like you've just gotten run over by a flock of Chocobos."
Kairi bent down near the tide, cupped some water in her hands and splashed it on her face. She looked up sleepi

"For once, I have no idea. What do you think I should do?"
The older teen hauled his backpack back up on his shoulder when it started to slide down his arm. "I already told you what I thought you should do, and I still think the same."
Sora stuck his hands into his hair and messed it up completely, as if the spikes in his hair was blocking his brainwaves from flowing completely. "I know, I know!" He stopped walking and turned to Riku. "But why is doing the right thing so hard this time?"
He grinned suddenly, his eyes shining in the sunset's light, beneath his silvery bangs.

"This should teach her friends to keep their mouths shut," Natalia said smugly. She quickly pulled out her wallet and slapped a bundle of bills across her informant's palm.
Despite being paid, Natalia's "friend" still looked a bit uneasy. "Are you sure this isn't against the rules, though?"

"Kairi! Calm down!" Sora cried. But there was no doubt in his mind that Tidus deserved it for being careless. After the group met up outside in the town square, Sora relayed the situation to the others, resulting in Kairi's justified wrath. Donald and Goofy were currently in the men's bathroom trying to figure out how to use urinals that weren't designed for animals as all of the stalls were currently occupied.
"How could you let Natalia get her hands on that picture?!" Kairi roared. "Don't you realize what this means for me and Sora?!" Eventually, her grip came loose enough for the others to pull her back a few feet. Tidus gulped in fresh air and began massaging his neck.

Kairi giggled. "You've really gotta get with the times, Riku." She whipped out Sora's cell phone again. "While we were fighting against the Organization, a handful of volunteers from every world got together and built interstellar routing stations. Kinda like satellite dishes posted throughout space."
Riku looked at Selphie. "I was wondering how you contacted Donald and Goofy so fast." After making the quick call to Pence, ("I'll be on the next Express!") the Destiny Island group began heading for the train station. Fortunately, it wasn't far from the town square.
"So exactly who is this Pence anyway?" Wakka asked.

"Yeah, right!" Hayner smacked his fist into his palm. "What could be more satisfying than smacking a weapon over another person's skull?"

Before the Destiny duo could counter, a human-shaped blur whizzed by them and smashed into a pile of garbage bags with a thunderous crash. "What the...?!" Wakka and the others ran up with concern on their faces. Tidus reached the pile first. Sprawled out on top was a boy about their age with wind-blown jet-black hair and wearing a blue blazer. He groaned slightly as he attempted to push himself up.

For a moment, her hands both flailed aimlessly through the air, because where she had set dolly before, they found nothing. Honnu grunted, and opened one eye. Then she blinked.

As she looked around, she became extremely prone to hyperventilating. Everything was different! Her dresser, gone. The blanket her grandmother had sown for her so very long ago, not to be found. Panic was floying through her system along with her warm blood. Honnu threw the unfamiliar covers from herself and watched as she sheet fluttered gently to the heap of blankets.
