August 21 Zeta Canis 22:00
The battle of Zeta Canis had been raging all across the planet with fleets of ships and air units clashing over the seas weathering the hurricane and rough seas while colossal armies clashed over the dunes as sand storms picked up from the strong winds burying units in the sands.
The situation of the Aeon had been an uphill battle as they had been in constant battle for survival with ground constantly been changed as battle line after battle lines were moved an broken from both sides, Xin and valor had been able to take out one of the Cybran commanders on the heartland of the main continent (pretty much a super continent.) while the lone isolated commander on one of the islands near Xin was still busy as always send fleet after fleet of ships to attack Xin.

Morrigan vs. Tron BonneMorrigan shifted back her long, green hair as she flew across the night sky, feeling bored as usual. Nothing excited had happened in weeks, and she was starting to feel her usual activities as a succubus weren't going to keep her satisfied for much longer. With a sigh, she flew back to her castle and prepared for rest, growing tired of seducing others for now. As she landed at the window of her room, she stretched and went to her wardrobe.Morrigan vs. Tron Bonne3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
But she felt different, somehow. Something seemed wrong.
Before removing herself from her normal skin-tight attire, she made her way down the hall and through several rooms in the castle, concerned that something was going on. As she got closer to the lower rooms, she realized her fear. She sensed someone. Someone small, and weak, but the feeling was close.
Soon a rustling sound caught her attention, noticing it coming from directly below. With a determined look, Morrigan dashed over to the stairwell, heading downwards, noticing she was nearing the t

Early in the morning at Dr. Expando's lab, an email came to the doctor's PC several minutes after turning it on. "This early in the morning?" Expando groaned, "Who could it be this time?" Expando opened the email, and found an attachment with a blue-eyed renamon girl with a five-inch bustline and her gatomon friend and her three-inch breasts. The renamon had on a purple sleevless shirt with a yin-yang symbol on the front, and the matching skirt with two white yin-yang halves on the front; along with purple markings on her body, she had on a matching pair of black and white yin-yang style leggings and gloves to match as well. The gloves and leggings each had a fin jutting from the left side for the black gloves and leggings and from the right for the white articles; each article also had a single dot of the opposite color on their respective sides as well. "Ah, this is... interesting so far." Expando thought to himself, "What's her.... oh, Renako. Ok..
Mass Effect: Legacy - Chapter 1The transport shook rather violently as it reentered normal space and she exhaled the breath she hadn't realized she was holding. She was used to being in space, space wasn't the problem, but making a jump in a small transport was quite different than doing so in a ship of respectable size. She looked around the compartment and the faces told her that at least she wasn't alone, the apprehension lay thick.Mass Effect: Legacy - Chapter 11 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"First jump, blue?" Asked the lanky young human to her right, a small chuckle to his voice
"I'm an asari traveling on a transport from Earth, what do you think?" She snarled in response, regretting her tone almost immediately. The boy just stared at her, surprised.
"Sorry..." she sighed "just not used to making the jump in something as... unstable as this. Usually I'm on something more sturdy"
"Unstable?" he responded, banging the bulkhead with a smirk "Alliance' finest! Nothing but sweat, steel and quality. Size isn't everything." his smirk growing wider "Oh, I'm David by the way...

One evening, Dr. Expando was in his back yard burying the cursed chakra necklace twelve feet under. "That should do it." Expando thought to himself, heading back inside his house; he, then checking the email inbox to see another email. "Who is it that I have to meet this time?" Expando grumbled, opening the email, "Let's see what we have here." Opening the email, he saw that the two photos were of Ami and Yumi, albiet as a blaziken girl and a swampert girl, respectively; the doctor tilted his head upon seeing the two pokegirls, until the familiarity of the two hit him with full force. "Wait a minute... how did they... nevermind! Must be alternate universe equivalents or something." Thought Expando, "Or... maybe pokeverse equivalents, maybe. I dunno. Eh, whatever... time for bed." Expando headed back inside his house for the rest of the evening to sleep.

The Nature of LeadershipMy friends,The Nature of Leadership8 months ago in Philosophical More Like This
I come before you as a Captain, but one who has learned from the ways of the past. I address you now to speak both of myself and of the belief that I hold for the future. We are humans, creatures of free thought and free speech. We gather in groups, connecting with those who are like-minded. We form these bonds because it is impossible for us to live alone, but even then, we think and act as freely for that is the gift of our being.
Yet even such gifts can be abused at times. Often we do not realise that the weight that our tongue may be enough to sink another in grief. Each word that we speak must be chosen carefully, for the power of the speaker compounds the weight of his speech. Some, carrying their first spark of greatness, might take this too far and abuse their strength. I was one of those individual, if you had known me in my early days. I spoke carelessly, without concern for any other and I viewed this as my given right. Indeed, I was shown to be very wrong.
Why is Hell Necessary?1. Sin and CrimeWhy is Hell Necessary?1 year ago in Academic Essays More Like This
Sin is like crime. When you commit a crime, you are breaking the law. When you commit sin, you are breaking God’s Law. If a Judge let a criminal go without punishment, we would call him unjust. Thus, if God allowed sin to go unpunished, that would make God unjust.
2. How Severe is Sin?
One of the major problems I encounter when telling people about sin and hell is that they simply don’t grasp how severe sin is. While the comparison above is a good illustration, it doesn’t do justice in communicating how bad sin is. Sin is an act of evil that is against the very nature of God. God is so pure and holy that He cannot commit sin, it’s against His very nature to do so.
It’s so important you understand this. If you find yourself going back to the idea that “sin isn’t so bad” then you still don’t get it. SIN IS EVIL. Sin is of Satan. Sin is against God. Sin is severe.

The greatest miracle on EarthThe universe was born 13,8 billion years ago. A reality, that might not have been, was. In a place where shouldn't have been anything, was something. The mater of the entire universe was packed into one infinitely dense point, the singularity.The greatest miracle on Earth2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The expansion of the singularity caused the Big Bang. That single point gave birth to time, space, mater and energy. And for some reason that what was, kept on being. The world didn't collapse or shred to tears, it was in harmony. There was a perfect balance between everything that existed.
During billions of years matter kept travelling in a universe which had the exact conditions to allow the birth of atoms. Gravity kept pulling matter together. One atom at a time, after billions of years asteroids, planets, stars, solar systems and galaxies were born.
On so it happened that one galaxy had a solar system which had a zone able to support life. Not only was it in a right zone, but it had an atmosphere, a protective magnetic field and

There once was a broken boy
with a broken heart,
whose broken hands held a broken pen
to write broken words on his broken paper.
The broken boy left his broken bedroom
and headed down the broken stairs
to leave the broken house and find his broken crush
and tell her that he loved her.
The broken street led him to the broken house
and the broken girl stepped onto the broken porch.
The broken boy smiled a broken smile
but the broken girl frowned a broken frown.
The broken boy started to cry
and he stepped off the broken girl's broken lawn.
He ran down the broken street towards his broken house

His broken knees were scraped up and bleeding

Silent Death part 1It was a twelve day flight from the Ross 154 System to Kruger 60 A, which suited United States Marine Lieutenant George Winchell just fine. Along with his sniper team, a contingent of other UEC troops from Bernard's Star had been sent along on this mission. These extras weren't Marines, a point Winchell's team made clear from the start.Silent Death part 14 years ago in Science Fiction More Like This
Few militaries within the UEC could boast the operational success or match the rigorous training methods employed by the Marines, and as such only a handful of them came close to gaining the Marines' respect. Among them were the Israeli Mossad, the Australian Bush Scouts, and the New Crimea Hussars out of Luyten 726-8 A. The troops sent by the UEC were regular Army.
The days aboard the transport to Kruger 60 A, which the Alaereen had named Tyrinaleiris, were spent reviewing mission specs and checking their gear. Meeting up with a small insertion fleet comprised of corvettes and point-defense destroyers three days out from Kruger, preparations

To be honest, I'm not even sure if he's a real druid or if he just likes that title. I personally think he just stumbled across an old book, learned a bit of the secret ways of the world, and called himself something that sounded appropriate. Oh, sure, I'll buy that he walks the old path. I've seen enough strange stuff in my very long lifetime to not believe that. But I just don't think he knows what he's doing most of the time.
It was a shame too. We could use someone that was more connected to the ways of the world right now. Jeremy and I were hunters and Maria, well, there was nothing special about her. She just had guts.
