God Emperor of Mankind -Hypothetical profileGod Emperor of Mankind -Hypothetical profile2 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Greetings all! A couple of the people in my group wanted me to make a profile for the Pre-internment Emperor of Mankind so, after much labor, I constructed this huge profile that you now see. Hopefully it makes up the lateness in my almost done story (the midterms also delayed it).
Questions at the end.
Name: God Emperor of Mankind, original name unknown
Age: 38,000 years old (in current form)- merged shaman predecessors number several million years countless times over
Height: 11-12 ft
Weight: 800 lbs
Grade: 9.5- Demigod
Although his true name and origins are shrouded in mystery, the being known as the Immortal God Emperor of Mankind is generally agreed to have been born in the 8th millennium BCE in Turkey. Although his birth was natural, he is generally described as having parents and siblings, his powers were a result of a collective of human shaman pyskers committing mass suicide to reincarnate into a single human being. At this time the Warp, an immaterial o
Buried Alive v2 If you've ever played Pokemon Red, Blue, Fire Red, Leaf Green, or even Green version you would know about Lavender Town. The small lavender colored town that held as the burial sight for Pokemon. It was 1995 that Red and Green came out in Japan when the legend of Lavender Town first started. The eerie music had a high pitch to it that mostly only children could hear.Buried Alive v23 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The music's pitch caused them to act strangely and even kill each other. Although it was never really proven that the legend was real, many people believe it. There was another legend that is sort of known. People have their theories about the little girl that wonders Lavender Town.
If you speak to her she will ask if you believe in ghosts. If you say yes then she will say that there are some believers. Although if you hit no then she will say:
"I see, then I guess that white hand on your shoulder is just my imagination".

Chapter 1: The Incident
Grand-dad always said I'd see him again some day, but I had always though that day'd be when I kicked the bucket but he aparently had other ideas. He somehow knew it'd be another way some day.
Not that it surprised me; seeing as how he's the smartest man I've ever known.
It all started when we's fighting those mindless robot's that feller Grey Mann had thrown at us like they was nothing to him. Wave after wave of robots came at us like ants versus anteaters. Not that we had any trouble with em' but they just got agervatin' after so long. My sentries took care of em like the where made of paper, and all I had to do was stand behind it and give the ol' thing more bullets and rockets to shoot out.
We was nearing the last wave for the day before Grey had to get him some more built to throw at us the next day, but some little varmit scout-bot somehow got behind my sentry and destroye

They'd been practically invading my thoughts lately- oh, you want to write a story? Why not add some sexy mercenaries? And while you're at it, an orgy sounds great right about now... No, no, no! Stop it! You'd love to just scream at yourself for how fucking stupid and perverted you are. I slam my laptop shut in frustration and throw it across the bed, crushing an unsuspecting bag of Doritos as it lands. I slam my head back on my pillow and throw the covers over my head and I'm ready to call it a night.
That's when someone knocked at my door.
I rolled my eyes, then remembered that no one was home- or at least, no one was supposed to be home. I got up quietly and grabbed the knife I kept in my drawer for any kind of break-in or emergency, hid it in my sleeve like a Spy with his Sharp Dresser, and slowly opene

The Trisolians weren't giving an inch. All they knew was that their previous liquid Emperor was trapped and still alive inside the fleshy sack-like stomach of a red-headed twenty-something in the royal chamber.
"Let us in!" the imperial advisor demanded as the royal ginger and his companions locked the door. "Fry must die so that Bont may live!"
"What am I gonna do?" Fry panted.
"We've gotta get the Emperor outta your body before they kill you!" Amy replied.
"Relax, Fry," Zoidberg comforted. "I'll simply spin you in a high speed centrifuge separating out the denser fluid of his highness."
"But won't that crush my bones?" Fry asked.
"Oh, right, right, with the bones. I always forget about the bones."
"Hey, why don't you just sweat him out?" suggested Bender.
"Forget it," Bont rebutted from inside Fry's gut. "As Emperor I refuse to be dripped out through somebody's armpit!"
"I could vomit or urinate," Fry considered thoughtfully. "Would you feel better about that?"

Having finally restored the Medbay to order and completing his report to be turned in to the Administrator, Stecker absently pushed the small lensed, wire frame glasses back up to the bridge of his nose and asked of his companion perched primly on the chair behind the German's desk, "Vell zen... vat do you say, Archimedes?"
The white dove cocked its head as if actually waiting to hear what he had to say. "Vich do you zink is vat ze Doktor needs, hm? "Beethoven? Mozart? Sarasate? Bach?"

Chapter 25 - Bed Bugs
It began snowing again. Eventually forming into a snowstorm that kept both sides cooped inside till it cleared up. The Scout took the opportunity to begin his research through the book of paranormal studies. He locked himself in his room and sat on his bed, silently reading through the book, cover to cover. The Spycrab could only watch, feeling a bit helpless due to his form. Desperately, he wished he could help the Scout in some way - or that he at least knew something that would help lift his own curse. That wasn't going to happen anytime soon, but at least he kept the new BLU Spy away from the RED Scout. That was really the only bright side he could find.
The next few days were clear weather, allowing the teams to battle again. Leaving the Spycrab to only watch the fight from the window. At the end of the day, the Scout would return, shower quickly, then resume reading the book - Almost like clockwork.

He thought to himself a little more, and he didn't notice when Soldier stepped menacingly in front of him and eyed him. When Engineer didn't look up at him or respond, Soldier crossed his arms and cleared his throat. Engineer snapped out of his daydream and looked up at Soldier.
"Oh, sorry Soldier." Engineer apologized, unrolling some blueprints. "I was having a little daydream."
Soldier raised an eyebrow. "Well, save the daydreaming for later and get back to the building!" He demanded. "Or I'll save the BLUs the trouble of giving you the beat-down and I'll do it instead!"
Engineer gave a little salute. "Roger that!" He looked at his blueprints and started putting metal together to build a Sentry.

It was a normal day at the Fort, which was alright on their free days. Instead of having to go steal Intel or die off in some dramatic fight, each team member set off to relax and spend some time to themselves.
One such person was Soldier. He woke bright and early, but with less urgency like usual, using some time to straighten his room and throw on his ‘casual’ uniform. The nice thing to him, being a guy and all, was that he didn’t need to use a mirror, knowing all the while as he threw his hat on without a glance that he looked as spiffy as he did every day since he joined the team. If only he had looked….

No answer, of course not. Mike kept silence as always. It was kinda funny, that the boy who usually barley shut his mouth remained silent like this all the sudden. Yet, to be honest, Sydney wished he would at least answer in this very moment. But he didn't.
Sydney filled two glasses with water and placed one right in front of the tight-lipped runner before he sat down beside him on the couch. They could have looked like two friends, who were just chilling in the communal room of the base....beside the hand- and foot-cuffs which kept Mike from running away and/or killing someone.
They were alone; well, at least it seemed so, because Sydney knew Jean was nearby, but he didn't want the Tentaspy being part of his weekly conversation with Mike. He wanted to talk to the Scout privately - with Jean around he would probably never open his mouth. Not that he ever opened it when Sydney for a change wanted him to.
"How is Gabe?"

For so many deceptions,
So easily hold sway.
So was I seen?

For deception is easy,
The trust yet unseen.

Everyone tucked in gratefully, all chatter had quietened and the room was filled with appreciative murmurs as they savoured the food. The Medic looked around happily, pleased that everyone was enjoying his cooking. But then he frowned, one seat was empty.

"I will get everything ready, my lord" Sebastian exited out of the office, leaving the tea behind. When he was out of Ciel's sight, he leaned against a wall and sighed.

It’s all part of the game… right?
Spy ran, a hand on his cloaking device, prepared for the countdown to start. He was given fifteen seconds to run and hide. Somehow, this all was making his adrenaline rush and it almost made this whole thing horrifying to him.
2Fort wasn’t a very big place once you really ran through it enough to know it. Almost all the hiding spots were convenient in this location, but he’d have to survive for 15 minutes before game was called over. He had his doubts of survival, but he looked to his colleagues and presented himself with a smirk upon his face. Showing them no worried and doubts, but in his mind, it was the exact opposite.
A game of only two players. That’s how this goes, consisting of only a Spy and one other player from the opposing team, so I could be anyone from the RED team. Thoughts about the opposing team, of who they chose, it just wrecked his mind thinking of such a thought. The rules w

Demoman leapt up and kicked his chair aside in anger.
"I'll have ye know tha' me mother is th' best at her art. Th' very same art runs through me veins, an' I'm no' afraid ta be using it on ye!" Demoman waved the book in a threatening manner, but Sniper just yawned.

If he had he would have seen Demoman raise that chair at him.

First, the political cartoon itself: http://podcasts.shelbyed.k12.al.us/kvarner/files/2010/08/Bellringer-2-Imperialism.jpg
So, what is this cartoon by Judge magazine saying? (Judge magazine is a satirical
publication that produced some of the best political cartoons of the 19th and
20th centuries.) The cartoon depicts a progression of Uncle Sam,
personification of the United States, growing progressively over time. Though
the early growth of the US is depicted as healthy growth, that of empire is
contrasted as unhealthy growth or fat.
So, why is empire unhealthy to the body politic? Between 1783 and 1861 the body of
the US can be interpreted as merely that of a nation (if perhaps an
enterprising and industrious one). This early growth can be defined as nation
building. But looking into it more closely, this definition is slippery. It
implies that the Amerindians have no nation, or that their nation is the United
States even if it is an alien European nation. Were the Amerind

He and his future roommate, Rob, had waited too late to start looking, and all the decent, cheap places near campus were taken. So far, the two seniors had seen a place with a rat hanging out by the front stoop, a place where smoke smell had seeped into the carpets, and a place with obvious water damage and one tiny closet. Now Jesse was on his own because the only time the landlord was available to show the apartment was during Rob’s shift at the local coffee shop.The Sofa - Part 14 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
