Request: Dark AcexRavess: The BirthThe heart of the Cyclonian Empire is not the best place to give birth to a child. Actually, it is one of the worst places to bring a new life into the world. Ravess knew this. But she didn’t have much choice, now did she? After all, it was a little late to turn back now. She was in labor, and the pain was killing her. She felt like she was going to be ripped in two, as though, in order to give life to her child, she had to give up her own life.Request: Dark AcexRavess: The Birth1 year ago in Romance More Like This
But despite her pain, the markswoman was proud; proud of her soon-to-be-born daughter, who would surely grow up to be a powerful woman. She was also proud of herself for making the decision to bear this child. The child of the man she loved.
Ravess hadn’t known that she would fall in love with the Dark Ace. But when she did, it became clear that they were meant to be. This pleasant thought was interrupted by another spasm of pain that tore a scream from the woman’s lips. She could reminisce about her dark yet handsome, blood-th

He wasn't the only member of Hollywood Undead who was confused. None of them had an idea what was actually happening here. They were all tired, it was early in the morning, they had come to the studio early because they wanted to work on their new album; and now they were all standing in the middle of it, arms either crossed in front of their chests or rubbing the back of their head, not sure what to do with their hands. But all of them were bending their brows.
Except for Jorel. Jorel wasn't confused, at least not in his own eyes, and he wasn't
Tendencies - chp.8 (DannyXDeuce fanfic)Aron closed the door softly, after Danny left. He didn’t even had the chance for a last kiss, because Danny was rushing out. He leaned against the door and slid slowly to the floor, until he was sitting in it. He stood there in silence, thinking about Danny, about last night, and about that brand new feeling that was unleashed, and that flooded his heart everytime he tasted Danny’s lips, everytime he felt Danny’s touch, everytime he breathed Danny’s scent or everytime he looked at Danny’s eyes.Tendencies - chp.8 (DannyXDeuce fanfic)2 years ago in Romance More Like This
Danny was driving. It wasn’t raining, but the sky was still cloudy. The sun that woke him up was hidden, and the streets were still filled with that smell of rain and wet dirt. He sighed, regretting of rushing out and not giving Aron a last kiss, has he knew Aron was expecting. He thought about turning around and going back a thousand times, but then he felt shy about it and thought he would look ridiculous…

I wanted to scream, but instead I swallowed it down as I breathed in the last, long drag from my cigarette, preparing to pop out another one. I butted the cherry out and exhaled the smoke, enjoying my nicotine high, but hating the reality that was happening. This wasn't a dream. I no longer had my friends...the ones I fucking loved. Bunch of no, good, backstabbing, drinking pigs! I didn't do anything! I’m completely innocent! They can’t kick me out...like I’m some sort of freeloader.

I don't think anything could have "prepared" us for what happened, though maybe Armageddon. Yeah. Armageddon might have whipped us into shape.
Harvest fell. In a storm of fire and alien hatred, it fell, and millions of lives fell with it.
Nobody saw it coming. I mean, there are spooks and spies and masterminds high up in the hush-hush intelligence bracket, but I doubt even the smartest sleuth out of all of 'em could have seen the way it played out.

Don't Cut YourselfIt wasn't Emile's style to feel regret. He rarely entertained the emotion because he never really had reason to; regret came from attachment, and attachment was something he just didn't do.

He sat hunched like a brooding predator in one far corner of the fallout shelter, as nervous civvies cried and whimpered and comforted each other in the shadows. There was little light, just the hazy flicker of a few self-sustaining panels, but Emile could see just fine through the twin holes that made up the eyes of the skull on his mask. Everything was green and white and yellow thanks to night vision. They all looked like ghosts this way. The normally aggressive Spartan unsheathed his kukri and pondered the way it fit into his palm, remembering how Kat had swiped it to outline their plan in the cave all those days ago.

Tess sat at the data terminal. It wasn't often that she had a moment to herself but things were changing. She was always sent out on her own, working alone with ODST at the most. Her new orders changed all of that, and she wasn't sure exactly how she felt about that. She was going to be part of a team, teammate to actual Spartans.
Tess had hacked into the main system and gotten as much information as she could find on the new team. She'd found basic information but after a bit of cracking, she found a bit more which seemed to give her a better view of what she was going into.
According to the records, the last member of the team had died on a mission to destroy a cruiser. It was something that Tess diffidently approved of. Every less cruiser in the sky meant an easier fight for the ships above, and for the forces on the ground. It was a pity that he had died. She did note that his death was fully attributed to his own actions, that he failed to wait for backup.

"Aha, now this is more like it," Jun said gleefully, prancing through the deep snow like he was on top of the world. He lifted his arms, admiring the white and gray body armor that he and the other two members of the search-and-rescue party now wore. "Not as comfy as MJOLNIR, but hey, at least it has heating. And triple the insulation we'd get in those stupid parkas."
Six couldn't help agreeing with the sniper's statement. The weather had taken a nasty turn for the worse in the last fifteen minutes, and the snow was blowing so thick it obscured her natural vision. But the HUDs of their helmets, which aesthetically resembled a cross between ODST and CQC variants, picked up infrared and also possessed motion trackers. This armor was virtually useless in battle, but today it would serve the Spartans well. It lacked the liquid-crystal layer that augmented their movements, though, so it was a bit heavy. Nothing they couldn't deal with.

He didn't really mind Dylan when he's drunk off of his ass like this. He's a shithead who flirts with other girls, but Jorel has learned to accept that. It's just Dylan's drunken nature to flirt. However, when things get too heated, Jorel always steps in and reminds Dylan of who he's really with in case he forgets.

"It's tradition." Jorge reached over and picked a heart out of the bowl on the table. "It's more about the messages on them." He tossed the candy to the Spartan beside him.
Emile caught the candy and read it. "Hug me? In your dreams, big man." He tossed the heart aside.
"Get in the spirit." Jorge moved and before Emile could stop him he'd enveloped the assault specialist in a bear hug.
Kat smiled as she watched Emile fight to escape Jorge's grasp. For all their arguing they were very close with each other.
"If not these, then what would you want someone to give you?" Richard leaned a bit toward her. "You don't seem like the kind of woman that would like flowers or candies."
"Yeah, what did the Commander get you?" Emile grunted as he tried to push Jorge away, though he was failing miserably.

He knelt down looking down at her visor. It took only a fraction of a second for him to realize what had happened.
Anger spread through his veins at the realization. Without a second thought he grabbed the pistol from her hip, the one she always used. He turned the gun skyward to the hovering phantom. Six spotted the sniper perched on its side. In his fury he couldn't identify species or rank, only that it carried a needler rifle.
Six fired, slightly aware of the battle rifle fire from the rest of the team. The phantom rose and started to turn away. The figure slipped back into the protection of the ship. Six's pistol clicked empty and he cursed.

Kelly frowned down at her daughter. She couldn't tell if the dirt that smudged the kid's face was because she hadn't washed up or because it was part of her costume. "All right, where did you get the armor?"
Catherine grinned, clutching the ODST helmet under her arm. The seven-year-old wore an almost exact replica of ODST signature armor but it was small enough it fit her. "Grandpa helped me."
Kelly sighed, she should have known. She turned to see Avery walking into the kitchen. "And just who are you supposed to be?"
Avery tugged at the collar of his long black coat. "I'm the doctor." He grinned like a mad man. He looked cocky and his hair was slicked back.

Carter stood by the lake, watching the water lap at the shore. He didn't really know how he had gotten here. The last thing he remembered was being in the pelican, heading toward the scarab. He didn't remember hitting it, but there was no way that he could have made it out of that alive. What was more confusing was where he was. It seemed to be Onyx, but it lacked any of the familiar military buildings, only a small two-story house. The light blue painted wood of the outside was soft against the white trim and deck on the front of the house.
Carter didn't know why but he moved toward the building. He moved up the steps, running a hand over the railings that led up. It was so perfect, like it was out of a dream. It was like an old picture of a house on Earth. The kind that existed outside of big cities and he'd only ever seen in books. It was what he'd always wanted to live in when he was a little kid.

Those were Doctor Halsey's first words as she entered Noble Base, hastily removing her scarf and goggles so she could gawk at the decorations and the company. Upon her entry, Jacob Keyes had immediately ceased his conversation with Miranda and stood up, while Miranda remained seated and eyed Halsey with an icy, almost hostile demeanor.
Halsey looked around, taking in the sights and sounds, and her keen blue eyes flitted from the tree to the ODSTs to Kat's bright red velvet shirt. It took her a moment to accept that this was indeed reality, and she took a few more steps inside, snow sliding off her coat. Jacob Keyes walked straight toward her and held out both hands. "May I?" he asked, and she turned so he could pull off her snow-caked coat. He slung it over a nearby chair and then half-smiled, still handsome despite his years.
