It begins in the same way, every single night
Fire spreading from an altar in the darkness
As all living beings are slowly consumed,
The coruscating flames appear wet with blood
The scene then changes to a flooded hallway
Live wires dangling just above the water,
Like venomous serpents slithering in the darkness
A single pounce would end my life
Eventually the hallway ends with a door,
One that reminds me of forgotten yore
And my thoughts shall be in rhyme at this point
As though lips and tongue are eternally joint
What maddened schemes have they in mind?
It is not a question, I may ask at this time.
Quickly I am brought before a bone-wrought throne
Kneeling as my flesh is carved 'Atone'
My thoughts return to me and they are normal now
I somehow retain awareness of where I am.
I see before me, a creature rising;
From the shadows it grins and bares its fangs
'I am the end, which you so desperately seek,
And the mo

I can see the walls are moving like dancers in the paint!
They cartwheel and turn as they soar through the air
I wonder how they do it but all I do is stare
The clock is ticking madly and soon it starts to chime
I think I'll probably turn this into another crazy rhyme
I appear to be creative but I'm really rather ill
In fact I'm only typing by sheer force of will
My eyes are actually closing as my fingers tap along
It seems my love for poetry is really rather strong!
But before I slip away to sleep I must complete this work
I'm afraid my need for excellence might be my only quirk
So here's a simple message that I've always wanted to say
It's just a simple thank you for showing me the way
My friends have made me stronger and showed me how to live
But I'm afraid these simple words are all I have to give:

As selfish as this sounded, you were kinda greatful that Romania was dying. Of course, you weren't happy about his death at all, but you were glad that he was doing this for Arthur, the man you loved. You could not live another day, knowing that he had to live with his burden.
You walked past Arthur, still in the middle of reading the book you passed to him, and walked foward to the man you only knew as Romania. You knelt down in front of him, and placed a hand lightly onto his chest. One could still feel a faint heartbeat underneath his skin. You looked at his face, just to notice that his lips were moving.
"Are you okay?" You asked Romania, yet even though his eyes registered you, his voice was not heard.
You moved your ear to his lips, straining to hear what he was trying to say. Very faintly, you heard the words, "I'll see you at the other...side....of-" He never finished that sentence.

The reason you never cross my mind is because you're always on my mind.
The reason why I don't like you is because I love you.
The reason I don't want you is because I need you.

The reason I wouldn't live for you is because I would die for you.

The name awakened every reflex I had worked so hard to develop. It took a tremendous amount of effort and control to remain casual, or at least, to try to. I pulled away gently and forced a smile.
"I'm gonna get something to drink."
Alfred didn't buy my act. He frowned at nothing in particular as I reassembled my clothes and dressed.
"(Name), I'm sorry I didn't tell you sooner dude. I know it's weird, but-"
I didn't bother looking at him as I pulled chalk from the messy pile of my old clothes and belongings. Chalk, and a knife. I kept the knife concealed and drew a circle on the floor with the chalk. A simple circle should suffice.
"Why didn't you tell me sooner. You led me on, when all this time… All this time you were someone else." I realized I was shouting. I didn't care. "You made me think we could be together. And now this!"

Coalition of Western RepublicsA militarist state basing itself on the American Empire, the Coalition of Western Republics is one of the galaxy's superpowers. The modern Coalition’s system of explicitly modeling itself after Imperial America is not unjustified. The Coalition is one of many remnant governments of the old United States, and like all of them claim it is the official one. The modern Coalition was founded on Columbia after the Endless War, a war between its German-speaking and English-speaking colonists. These colonists were descended from government officials, scientists, corporate executives and other VIPs that fled Earth as part of the New Dawn program. New Dawn was a program commissioned by the American and German governments to escape Earth for a habitable world if nuclear war ever occurs. When it finally did in the early 2240s, the American and German governments moved as many important persons as it could onto as many ships as they could and left for the Columbia System, roughly sixty thousaCoalition of Western Republics7 months ago in Settings More Like This

You looked up at Arthurs handsome green eyes. A blush spread across your face, there was nothing you could do to avoid eye contact, nor did you want to. You were taken in by the wonderful emerald orbs before you. You saw Arthur's face light up too, his hand still on your cheek.
"Close your eyes love…" He said calmly. You were so nervous, you hadn't kissed a guy since you broke up with your ex… But you closed your eyes anyway. After a few seconds you felt two soft lips connect with yours. You could feel your face heat up more and more as the seconds passed.
The two of you began to move in sync. Each movement bringing your bodies closer together, you now had your legs wrapped around his waist and arms around his neck, while he rested his hands on your upper and lower back.
You were both lost in the moment when there was a sudden crack of thunder. You pulled away in need of breath as well as from the shock. You looked outside the window to see dark ominous clouds looming over your hometow

Still in the kitchen you said "Your brother is a real pervert, Luddy" and raised an eyebrow, while drying the dishes he washed from the breakfast.
"Ja, you can say so…" Ludwig answered, shaking his head and placing some more wet plates in the sink for you to dry. "Ahm… Ludwig, where do I keep those cups again?" you asked.

Republic of New Rome/Nova RomaNew Rome is the most powerful and significant “neutral state” in galactic politics. Considering itself “above” the rivalries of the three superpowers, it is proud of its status of being independent of the ideological fighting between the three states. Consequently, the superpowers view New Rome as a pariah and usually refuse to have anything to do with the “galaxy’s last democracy.”Republic of New Rome/Nova Roma7 months ago in Settings More Like This
Italian thinker Costantino Pesaresi, a social democrat whose parents had managed to flee Earth during the Collapse, founded New Rome. During the early days, the American government was burdened with the logistics of moving American and allied infrastructure to Columbia and neighboring systems, so Pesaresi’s parents were free to teach him what the Americans would have called “subversive antipatriotism.” By the time Pesaresi was an old man, he had already gained a following, especially among the poorer immigrants to the new systems, and his actions f

Conseil Red ArmyThe Conseil Red Army is by far the largest military force in galactic history. Numbering at just under thirty billion men, women and xenos, the Red Army outnumbers its rival Coalition Army three to one. The main factor keeping the Coalition from being overwhelmed is its superior navy and superior industrial base. Fanatical and massive, the Red Army is feared by all.Conseil Red Army7 months ago in Settings More Like This
Because of the Conseil Systems’ high population but poor industrial base, Red Army doctrine revolves around the idea of using large amounts of infantry to overwhelm the Conseil’s foes. This basic idea is inherited from the Soviet Union, which both before and after the Collapse regularly overwhelmed its enemies through aggressive, overwhelming attacks. Casualties were not a problem, as the massive manpower pool made replacing troops a nonissue. The idea of individuals sacrificing themselves for the state appealed to the more radical communists in the Conseil leadership, and as the ideology of “divine social

Wraps his arms around your waist when you hug

He gives you real compliments like on your personality, not just on your boobs
He makes eye contact
He answers your call eagerly

Firanja ConfederacyFiranja Confederacy7 months ago in Settings More Like This
Composed primarily of refugees from Germany's North African and Middle Eastern colonies, the Firanja Confederacy was founded by an intellectual elite that wished to emulate old European government with an Islamic twist. The Firanja Confederacy was directly based on the German Empire: a confederation of different Arab states united under the Kayser and a National Diet. Although originally envisioned as a democratic, secular state, constant crusades against the Dominion further increased the power of religious and monarchic authority. In 2525, with the beginning of the Cerafi War, the Islamic Jihad Party gained power. Sunni Islam was recognized as the official state religion and, mimicking Asturia, the Kayser was made Caliph. Non-Sunnis, especially Shia Muslims, were labeled as "collaborators with the Shaytan (cerafi)"and arrested en masse. Entire towns suspected of harboring infidels were razed by Firanjan bombers, which often used neurotoxic weapons. The Firanjans were known and feared

As a xenobiologist, one of the most common questions I'm asked is the question of human dominance. It pleases me that people are willing to ask such a question instead of ingesting human supremacist talking points straight from a Big Three propaganda broadcast. It shows an interest in other sapient species that is sadly not present among the vast majority of humankind.
Several factors have contributed to overwhelming human superiority in the Milky Way. None of them involve any ethical, moral, supernatural or genetic superiority on the part of mankind. Sapient aliens have the roughly cognitive capabilities of humans, if expressed in a variety of unique ways that are, well, alien. Species such as the cerafi, gusano, cannck and strigoi have all developed faster-than-light travel independently of mankind. Aliens have provided humanity with new technologies and many impro
