Auri jerks out of bed for a moment and glances around the her dark bedroom, waiting for her eyes to adjust. She sits up in bed and yawns before she reaches for the light switch on her lamp nearby when she hears a sudden creak of metal outside. The Four freezes for a moment and listens hard.
She hears the creak again only this time it is fainter, sounding off farther down.
Is someone trying to get in? the commander thinks to herself as she gets out of from under the warm covers. Once her bare feet hit the cold metal flooring, she's grateful she had slept in warm clothes. The winters at this base were brutal, the captain had told her and he was right. The Four reaches into her nightstand nearby and picks up her pistol before she pads quietly across the room to her door. She eases it open and glances out. Blue eyes squint into the darkness before she opens the door.
Silence greets the Spartan as she steps out into the dark hallway. She looks left and right before walking forw

"Alright Ghost team," began Commander Palmer, "just got word from the eggheads up top that one of their research facilities has gone dark. They've tried ever channel they could think of and they have been unsuccessful in raising their buddies. They think the Covies broke in, jammed their signal, and think the bastards are in the process of breaking into some pretty sensitive data files. That's where you guys come in. What I want from you is to infiltrate the facility, kill any alien bastard that gets in your way, find a terminal, copy the data, and purge the building."
"What do you mean by 'purge', Commander?" asked a Spartan named Daniels.
Palmer gave him a look. "Apparently the eggheads say that the facility is already too far gone to recover. They don't want the Covenant getting their hands on anything that would benefit them in any way," Palmer explained, "That's why we have to level it. Demolition charges are already packed in the pelican. Commander Rachel Auri will be l

Spartan Commander Rachel Auri sits down in her quarters mulling over a few battle reports she received within the last few hours.
"Desk job is definitely not for me," she mutters as she set the datapad she held in her hand back down. She draws her legs up to her chest and she sits in the chair a little while longer before she gets up and paces her room. A soft orange glow behind her brightens up one corner of her room as Roland activates the holo tank by her door.
She turns around and gives the AI a brief smile.
"Hey Roland," she says. The AI inclines his head to her.
"Hello Commander," he replies.
"Checking up on me?"
"Something like that, yes." He clasps his hands behind his back. "I wanted to let you know that the armor variant you requested to be made a few weeks back is now ready to be tested."
"It's done? Good. Testing the armor will at least give me something to do for a bit instead of pace this room and go over battle reports." She picks up a nearby datapad and scrolls th

Your Happy Without Me ~ Short Halo Story Geehee!"One of the worst feelings in the world is loneliness. Sitting in the dark by yourself in the wee hours of the night gently crying. Nobody knows what's going on with you. How could anybody realize what's happening? Everybody you know is resting peacefully in their bed awaiting the new day tomorrow.

"He's gone?" Was all Otto Octavius, now stolen the identity of Peter Parker said. His greatest victory.
He rose from the chair as he removed the device on his head. A device that was used to eliminate the remains of his greatest enemy. But not only eliminated, but humiliated and "proved" to Peter Parker that he was the better Spider-Man.
"I'm free..." Octavius said as he grinned a somewhat dark smile as he killed Peter both in body and mind. He had done it. Peter has been ripped clean from existence. Otto then rises from the chair and looked at the mirror, admiring his new youth that he'd taken and realized just how it feels to win.
It was then he heard his cellphone ring. He looked down and saw it was Mary Jane Watson , the woman Peter loved and the woman Otto originally lusted over before he felt he needed to keep her "safe". He decided to ignore it, he wanted to gloat more into his victory instead. Moments later the call went straight to voicemail and

Red vs. Blue Resurrection
Was the sound of Sarge's shotgun as he fired it in the snowy mountain range.
Several of the scattered shotgun pellets hit directly on the side of the Meta's face. Unfortunately, the Meta was too far out of range for the shotgun to do any real damage. Instead his shields did their job well by absorbing the hit.
The Meta quickly turned to face Sarge right when he called out, "Come here ya big son of a bitch!"
The Meta had lost his brute-shot during the previous fight, but that didn't stop him. He had taken several stab wounds from Tex's knife as well as taking a direct hit from Tucker's sword.
The two started to slowly approach each other as Sarge continued to shoot the Meta with his shotgun. Each blast lowered the Meta's shields until they were completely depleated. But the Meta continued to advance on Sarge.
Both Grif and Simmons were watching the fight from a safe distance. "What is Sarge doing?" asked Grif.
"Looks like he's killing himself."

People like to believe that all aspects of the world are evenly divided. They want to think there are only two choices and no in between. There is black and there is white. There is love and there is hate. There is life and there is death. And, there is good and there is evil. Maybe, they think being one or the other makes everything else easier. Once you pick a side you are either praised or condemned. But, this is only what they would like to believe. Deep down they are all asking the question: what if there is an in between? A grayness where someone is neither black nor white, bad nor good. Could it be enough to excuse someone from being labeled as evil? Or demote someone from being purely good? They don’t know.
But I do.
I am part of that in between.
This is the truth.

Draw nigh with your arrows dipped in poison.
Let your lying lips come close to my ear.
Let your deceitful eyes meet mine.
The time has come once again.
The time to reveal your true nature.
You live to shed blood, my "friends".
You live to watch me suffer.
Come now, and pierce my heart once again,
with words that slaughter my very soul;
that cause my life to bleed out inside of me,
with rivers of tears that seem to have no end.
Come. Stare at my suffering,
with pitiless eyes that know no empathy;
with lips shaped in joyous smiles.
With laughter and joy, dance around my pain.
Your venomous words penetrate my being.
I stumble from all the pain of your poison.
Light and life is slowly drained.
Shrouding me in darkness
Have I pleased you now my "friends"?
In the midst of my pain, I see you laughing.
Surely my suffering was not in vain,
For you are happy.
The earth is made drunk by my blood.
Blood shed to satisfy your evil thirst.

"You're too quiet." She smiles.
He doesn't. "Did you sleep?"
"I couldn't," she says.
He just nods. She pours him coffee. He drowns it in milk and sugar. They welcome the morning in companionable silence.
"I wanted to be there for him." It's a whisper. He stares at the coffee mug in his hands, seeing something very different. "I saw him get hit. I wanted to be there so bad. I would have gone in, but Vance held me back. Probably saved my life.
