Project Minotaur takes place in an environment where humans have advanced to a level of scientific mastery very similar to the one achieved today, but they have an edge that we don't. Gods, in this world, are very real and present beings. However, something recently happened to one of the world's great pantheons, the Greek gods of Mount Olympus, which was so terrible that the remaining gods of the world have gone into hiding. Exactly what happened is unknown, but the cause has been tracked to the quarantined city of Knossos. Victim of a mysterious and deadly disease outbreak following a disastrous tsunami, the city was walled off from the rest of the world by Mayor Minos of the Minos Corporation in order to save the rest of humanity from a virus so deadly it made the Black Plague seem as harmful as the flu. Now the city appears deserted, except for the Minos Corporation's single skyscraper, where lights can still

"Help me, please help me," she whispered to herself as she sat on the floor
of her bedroom, slowly rocking back and forth.
She could hear the yelling down the hall. He was drunk again and she knew
that this time, yes, this time something would happen. In the past she and
her mother usually got out of the house when he was drinking, or he'd come
home in a drunken stupor and passed out on the living room floor.
She jumped as she heard something smash down the hall.
"Oh please, please…what did I do that was so wrong? Why won't someone help
me? We don't deserve this."
Tears slid down her face as she sat there on her bedroom floor, holding her
knees to her chest and slowly rocking back and forth.
She heard her mother cry out as something else smashed.
"Stop, just stop," she whispered.
There was another yell from her mother and then there was silence.
She knew no one would answer. She knew that she would probably never hear
her mother's voice again.

He trotted over to the small store and perched himself on a small bench that was placed just below the large window. He put his hands and nose against the glass, his ears folded to the sides of his head as his eyes grew larger.
The small store's many bakery showcases were filled with all kinds of patisseries, everything from small cookies, pies to large several stories cakes. The shelves were stacked with cans of candy and bread was being baked in the large oven.
But the only thing Rocket cared about where the muffins that rested on a tray, covered with a glass cupola. The muffins themselves were brown, with red and blue berries baked into them. The top of them were covered with a perfect thick layer of frosting.

It's just a month before Christmas,
She tried to cheer me up,
And she soon saw my slit wrists,
She asked me why,
I said death was on my wish list,
I told her to go away,
But she said she wouldn't, until she knew why I did this.
I wouldn't tell her.
I had nothing to say.
She asked why I did it.
I said go away.
She said she wouldn't leave,
She wanted to stay,
I told her to go,
Just call it a day,
But she wants me to be happy,
And she wants it today.
Still trying to cheer me up,
She gave me a kiss,
But I took ignorance,
Used it to replace the bliss,
I wish I wasn't so sad,
Or I could live my life like this.
She kept going,
She wanted me happy,
Her determination was showing,
She wouldn't stop,
So I smiled, beaming, glowing,
It was fake,
And she was all knowing,
so she kept trying.
That made me truly happy.
She cares that much,
I am truly amazed,
I can't believe I had that luck.

Unless Peter convinced Rocket and Drax to stay up drinking... then they are passed out in the kitchen somewhere.

You knew the difference between the twins, you knew they were individuals as much as you and Haruhi were as well as twins.
