TMNT-Not Quite HumanThe voices of Donatello’s enemies rang in his head. ‘Do you really think you have a chance with her?’ ‘What makes you so special?’ ‘You’re a turtle. A mutant. A freak. How could anyone love someone like you?’TMNT-Not Quite Human2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Donnie never let anything like that get to him, but then again, he seemed to forget quite often what he was...er...is. He and his brothers knew they were turtles...but they were more than that. They talked, they walked on two legs, they had a form of nose and lips instead of beaks and ate the same kind of food humans did. Sure they were green and had shells, but they weren’t exactly animals.
Donatello entered the bathroom he and his brothers used. The broken glass gleamed in the dim lighting. From where he stood, he could only see his outline. A tall, lean figure with no hair. Nothing unusual about that. Nothing at all.
When Donnie was with April, she made him forget everything that was ‘wrong’ about him. She made h

Losing his family to evil years before
he has vowed to close horrors door.
Faster and better he gets,
he knows his promises will be kept.
Standing alone in the dark of the night,
this hunter has come to protect the light.
Standing above the ones who threaten the peace,
'The legendary dark knight Sparda?! It can't be!' they cry
'You're right' the hunter answers
'I'm his son, Dante. Now, time to die.'

Suicide NoteThe article in the paper said that she killed herself by jumping off an eight-floor apartment block. He felt that something was off there. Not in the gesture itself, but in its details.Suicide Note4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Her mother told the journalists, crying, that she wasn't the sort of girl who would do such a thing. Her best friend said that she had her depressive episodes, but nobody could possibly have expected this. But he? He didn't find her taking her own life all that surprising. Still, something wasn't right. No suicide note, no sort of message to him. No strange actions, no frantic love-making or dispassionate 'my head hurts' statements. Everything had been normal prior to her death. It nagged at him.
When three days after her death he stepped out of the shower in the morning and prepared to shave, he was only mildly surprised to see that there was finger-writing on the steamed-up mirror.
'It wasn't me. I didn't kill her,' it said.
"I know," he replied out loud, then wiped the mirror cle

All the men stare and follow her lure wherever she goes
When she turns to them her perky breasts call out
Instincts take over, friends become foes before her
The men tustle to get their chance with the goddess
Standing before her gaze they see wanton eyes
Her lush lips say hello and ask their names
The men tell her all about themselves
There is little truth to the stories they tell
They must stand out above their rivals
They must taste her sex appeal
They must continue talking
They ask her nothing of herself
They feel they've seen all she has to offer
They'll never really know what's held within her body
That the heart behind her bosom is filled with love and poetry

The burn of olive and the argent throb--
Familiar, all whelm madly and surreal
While two veined lilac glows suppress a sob.
Upon a velvet brown, electric blades
Of blue cut clean the curtain, sleeve to hem,
And trim with cords of fiery green, then shades
Of yellow, frightening; I do not know them.
How strange that, it would seem, into my head,
For unknown reasons and without my leave,
An oil slick was leaked, a rainbow bled,
Which begs this question of what I perceive:
Am I to know such pain that pain needs be
Made in some manner pleasanter for me?

"I...I KNOW the Legion--" Nipton was still fresh in my mind.
"No, you don't. Anyone with half a brain wouldn't say they were going to go talk to the Legion. Talk to them? They're slavers, barbarians, they're not gonna want to talk to you. Do you know what they do to women?!"
We were standing near the entrance to Cottonwood Cove. And I had yet to see Boone this furious at me.
"Look, I'm not an idiot, okay?"
"As far as I'm concerned, yeah you are. You have no idea who the Legion even is, who Caesar really is. You don't even have a clue."

These were the only words of Carla's diary that Boone had read as he sifted through his old house. The book was then snapped shut and discarded, thrown on a counter-top, and he exited. It bothered him that the only words he read were about Manny, and not about him, but whose fault was it for prying?
Boone had honed in on his tracking skills the past month or however long it was, only stopping in Novac once the black-haired men found his mark, led by the cyber-dog. He had stayed for supplies and to enter the house, where he unwisely picked up Carla's journal, the one she had carried with her since they had met. Imm

'I never meant to let you down.'
Draven lifted a stray curl of his wife's hair from her face. She smiled in her sleep as if knowing he was there. As silently as he could, he leant over the bed and kissed her softly on the cheek.
'I've tried everything.'
Rising slowly, as quietly as he could manage on the wooden floorboards, Draven retreated from the bed. By the fractured light from the shutters he made for the bedroom door. The walls of the house were thin and he heard a creak from the neighbouring room.
'Best be off before Kale wakes.'
Reaching for the door behind him, still facing the bed and his sleeping wife, Draven paused. Drawn, painfully drawn like poison from a wound, he found his eyes stray to the chest at the foot of the bed. Shut away from the world under key and lock, he linge

Boone awoke with a start. A scream echoed in his ears, carrying him out of his dream and into the present. The present was the Courier's motel room in Novac, where darkness lay around him like a sheet, the ever-present neon sign outside glowing eerily into the room. He'd fallen asleep? Boone hadn't intended to, taking up watch in the same sooty chair he'd raised a pistol to himself in, mulling over thoughts of this town he had a severe love-hate relationship with.
The scream echoed again, faintly, and Boone pressed his fingers to his temple. Get out of my head, he willed the memory of Bitter Springs, closing his eyes. But his senses were telling him something was dead wrong. With eyes that could adjust to the blackness quicker than most, the sniper stood, realizing that the Courier's bed was empty. A jolt of fear went through him--it was after midnight, where could she have gone? and he pivo
Unleash the Khan.Manny had just gotten off duty, and slung his sniper rifle over his back as he made his way across the small motel yard towards his room. The sun was setting, its golden aura lighting the scorched town of Novac and highlighting all of the ruins as though it wanted to point out the humans' faults. The sniper paid no heed to this, as usual, and went directly from the dark setting of the dinosaur mouth to the dark setting of his comfortable room.Unleash the Khan.4 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
As he was shrugging off his jacket, Manny heard footsteps upstairs. He tilted his head curiously; was the girl back again? They had spent some time together the last time she passed through, which was only a week or so ago. She had been temporarily blinded by the cazador stings, but nonetheless chatty and fun to be around. They had shared talks of the Khans, a group who had just recently also accepted the Courier for her sometimes astounding feats. Manny was

The dealer passed out a new round of cards, and she straightened on her stool, trying to calm herself. Though the Courier had already won a few hundred caps, Arcade was smoking the table, despite having plenty in him to drink. A crowd had assembled to watch his uncanny poker skills.

It was apparent to all who attended the school and those who lived in the town surrounding it. Leaves, still brilliant hues of red and gold, lay scattered on the ground. The trees that they came from were skeletal and bare without them.
Some animals were changing, thickening their fur and becoming darker in preparation. Glinda Upland couldnt help but smile vaguely at this. The animals were like the Ozians or was it the Ozians who were like them? - Who, just like she herself, were adding on more and more layers of clothing onto themselves just to keep warm. Tearing her eyes away from the people and creatures, she turned her view upwards.
In the skies above her, birds and Birds alike flew in V formations, flying off south for the approaching cold season.
Once again, Glinda couldnt help but be reminded of something (or in this case, someone). She smiled vaguely once more, but this time, her smile was different. To the normal person, the blonde
