Pacific Rim, a review
In the near future, giant monsters identified as "Kaiju" have risen from a portal in a crevasse beneath the Pacific Ocean, resulting in a war that takes millions of lives and quickly consumes humanity's resources. To combat the monsters, a special type of weapon is designed: massive robots, known as Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two or three pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge which prevents the mental strain which would overwhelm a single pilot.
As a longtime defender of Michael Bay's Transformers, allow me to say one thing: Eat your heart out, Mr. Bay. There is a new king!
The movie starts with Raleigh (Charlie Hunnam) and his brother Yancy (Diego Klattenhoff) Beckett, being instructed to suit up to fight a kaiju, designated Category Four in danger and size. They wade out into the Pacific in their Jaeger, Gipsy Danger, with orders to kill the kaiju and save the city, but ignore the small fishing boat that

On the desks, the projects already say otherwise. The lines on the paper build complex maps, tracing a huge future for you - they show hundreds of wires and embroidered metal boards, a high-tech hard disk, and what, so they say, will be the most precise system of lenses in the world.
You wait, patiently. Your senses are still dim; the small optic is weak, whereas touch, smell and taste won't exist in your world.
Most of all, you hear. You hear their speeches, you hear their laughs; you hear a male voice repeating orders, as your supervisors type them in. Simple instructions – simple footage of experiments, with audio comment.
watch - and - learn
Always, every working day, you hear them say that you will become something great. You believe it – it is a fact, a truth like any other.
A night you can

I hope folks will excuse the summary-like nature of what you are about to read. This is actually the text of a response to a comment made on the previous post, but since it adds to Prin's back story, I thought I should put it here.
From Prin's days as a Greenskirt:
On a routine patrol, her rifle squad would encounter a small BeeDub unit, roving around on its own in the field. The other members of the squad are taken in by its innocuous little noises and beeps and its charming facial expressions. The women shoulder their weapons and kneel over the little drone like school girls over a stray cat.
There is even talk of adopting it.
"Are you lost, little guy?"
Then suddenly, Prin impales the intelligent device with her trusty Jet Knife, and raises her rifle.
Prin says nothing to the protests of her squad mates, who complain to the tune of,

Above the things that money could own,
Out of the reach that power could grant,
Amongst every challenge in which knowledge can tramp,
Past the time a clock could tick,
Away from the grave mortality gives,
Without precious attention only fame beholds,
Despite all the things that I betrothe,
Far from these is the love that I miss,
Within my wants I dream of nothing but this.

"Rabbit's hat flew in the ocean with Rabbit, dummins!"
Upgrade and The Jon called, "Rabbit! Where are The Spine's trousers?” Spine was very embarrassed.
"Red towel please!" he told Hatchworth who gave him a pink tutu.
Spine said "I am NOT wearing THAT.” Hatchworth called him a baby for not even wearing a diaper.
The Spine ran off while Hatchworth collected coconuts and got fat eating them all. After that, Rabbit appeared in a puffy cloud saying, "A fat robot?"
Hatchworth was suddenly swept into Neverland, where he met a Cheshire Cat.
"Your smile creeps me out," said Hatchworth,"but it's fine because it isn't as scary as Upgrade's."
Upgrade overheard Hatchworth and smacked him on the back of his buttocks.
David sang "How'd I get heeeeere?"
"With magic" sang The Jon's underpants. Jamba juice flew from Steve's hands with the magic words, into spines trousers, which were turning into blue mangoes.

Serendipia, an OvertureThis is the beginning. Not of a single story, but of many. A conglomeration of multiple stories intertwined to tell the tale of a world, to mark a place in its history. This is the beginning of a journey through Golden cities, and giant Iron metropolises, across vast plains, and through tropic jungles. As I sit here, writing, I can’t help but smile, as I am about to unfold, for you, the everyday, and not-so-routine lives of many a brave character, in the world of Serendipia.Serendipia, an Overture2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
But I’m not the kind of man to simply drop a brick of plot on your head. This is the introduction to a prologue. Consider this as a letter to a friend, or the overture to a grand opera, before the introductions. Today, I shall piece together, the setting of our adventure. It all starts on the great continent of Prodigistia, the land of Marvel, Promise, and Intellect. There are other continents on Serendipia, what mirror our Earth, in a few ways. The Geography is similar, as well! However, Serendipia is

Then how will you your secret tell?
When you say nothing.
Because you cannot.
You have not color, for the daylight to see.
So how may I know of your secret, do tell me?
When there is now nothing to look upon.
Because the light won't let me.
You have not kindness in your inherited temper.
So how can you give away so much?
When all you have is love.
You are of so many riddles.
Who, you cannot manifest,
Though I know, you biggest riddle is empathy.

Close your eyes and wish for a dream which can not be true.
Wishing for the nightmares to fade from your mind and let you walk free without any thoughts or pain or anything playing games in your mind to make you not be able to stay.
Keep walking even if it is away. Keep breathing even if everything fades. Keep the dream alive in your own night mare without a place.
Keep the world in its place as time stops and that one dream is all that holds you. All that you know.
All that you know.
Unable to control.
Unable to see.
Keep your eyes closed.
Keep them safe.
Keep them innocent to the world and live with that dream.
Live for the nights where you still dream freely. Keep the night for the dreamers and the games instead of the murder in the dark.
Keep the light on.
Keep the shadows away.
Keep the place safe.
Keep on looking to the sky and away from the pain.
Keep looking away from the sins.
Keep the dreams alive.
Keep the dreams inside your mind even when the tears ove

Tiny white unique soldiers floating down from Heaven's gates.
Each and every with it's own path, tempting the fates.
Bundled up and warm, I gaze upward.
Watching and contemplating my next move against the on coming horde.
Daydreaming of hot chocolate, and a little vibrating ball of fur sitting contently on my lap.
His golden eyes shut, deep in a nap.
Crunch, crunch, crunch, the white warriors have fallen to my size eight and a half vehicles of mass destruction.
Soon I will be home to make my daydream a true life vision.

You were walking down the snow covered sidewalk, swinging your arms as you headed home. It was winter in Canada; all you wanted to do was curl up next to a fire... Until you heard very soft sniff and what sounded like quiet sobs, making you freeze in your tracks. Yep, you could clearly hear it; it was from a little boy next to a large tree. He had chin-length hair with a strange curl that drooped from his blonde bangs; but he had a scared look on his adorable face and tears ran down from his light blue eyes, dripping onto his snow white teddy bear. Your heart broke at the sight and rushed towards the boy.
"Are you lost? Where are your parents?" You asked softly, kneeling down to his height. The child jumped at the sudden voice and looked at you with the most saddest expression.
"Pa-arents? W-where am I?" He spoke in a quiet voice as he hugged his bear closer, he seemed like he was an orphan.
You smiled warmly, "I'm (Name), what's your name?" "Matthew W-Williams..." "Well, Matthew, you
