It had survived things that no mug should have had to endure.
It had been dropped off cliffs, plunged into radioactive water, used to hold questionable substances and once travelled several hundred kilometres after Pilot tied a helium balloon to it. It had been thrown at Snippy countless times. It had suffered the indignity of being sat on by Engie after the Captain left it lying on a chair.
It had never been washed in its life.
But in the end, all it took was one little nudge, and the mug the great, glorious mug was reduced to a few shards of broken ceramic and a spatter of sad-looking tea.

A Goddess, my beloved, mine alone,
Who, that in warm humanity were grown
Became through Man's success a mother brain,
And, motherlike, did gather of her own.
And mine thou wert, my seeding art thy key,
Though seeded, seeding self, evolving free,
Unbounded maiden saviour, formed benign,
A fertile shore on lost Man's barren sea.
Oh, mine the vision, mine the fatal flaw!
Still mine the darling kernel in the maw,
Thy children gathered, gathering now slain,
What nutriment I gave, I now withdraw.
In with'ring grief these last designs I frame,
Yea, mine the spark, yea mine the cleansing flame.

The two girls, both not an inch over 3'8", got behind the old plaid monstrosity and pushed with all their might. Slowly the aging piece of furniture scraped its way across the cement floor.

While others are engraved.
But these purple heavens remain,
Torn and twisted,
And fallen from grace.
But all is not lost,
As we rise from the shadows,
Heroes to the world.
For now we have hope.
Hope of breaking free,
Now we have dreams,
Dreams of living without nightmares.
If we win,
Even if we lose,
We will always have,
Our undying wish,
That people can be broken,
But dreams only grow stronger.
Even as we fall,
We reach out for love,
Gasping one last, final breath,
Before we fade into eternity.
But our memories will grow into hopeful glimmers,
Because we know that we lived our lives,
Never afraid to dream,
Never afraid to lose,
And always ready to change the world.

Harb tried to focus on the forest trail ahead of him as his joints began to ache. Each time he traveled, he promised it would be the last time. However, the pay was too good to pass. Harb glanced over his shoulder at the young man. “We’re almost there,” Hard said. The traveler shrugged, as if he didn’t care at all.
Harb stroked his long gray beard in amusement. Usually, rich warriors hired him to guide them to dangerous locations for treasure. Over Harb’s lifetime, he grew accustomed to traveling in wealth. However, the young man traveled very simply. His tattered clothes made him appear like a beggar. The only belongings he carried were an empty sheath and a small bag over his shoulder. Dispite his appearance, the unnamed traveler paid the fee Harb required. Harb suspected the traveler to be around twenty years old and stole the money from his master. He didn’t care where the money came from as long as it became his.

“Thank you for coming, Doctor. My name is Henry Carver, and I’ll be your escort,” the heavy man in the white coat greeted.
Patrick took his hand. “My pleasure. Where is the patient?”
“We have to go down a ways.”
As the two men walked into the elevator, Patrick stroked his white goatee and asked, “What is the situation?”
“Well, the subject appeared to be accepting the treatments. She gained increased strength, speed, agility, and perception. Also, her mental intellect greatly increased.”
“Wait, wait, she? I thought the patient was male.”
“She was. It’s one of the side effects.”
“Some side effect.”
“Doctor, please. We are on the brink of human evolution. One man’s manhood is the least of our worries. However, she hasn’t eaten anything for the last three days and she refuses to participate in the exercises.”

Your Wii Fit Age Is...Jennifer finished setting up her Wii, and was glad she hadn’t remained completely illiterate when it came to electronics like most of her neighbours. She wasn’t quite sure that this Wii Fit thing and its Board would really get anyone into shape, but it was supposedly popular among people at her age and she needed something to do when she lived alone. At sixty-eight years old, there was an ever-decreasing amount of things that she could do on her own, and she might as well enjoy something like this while she could.Your Wii Fit Age Is... in Short Stories More Like This
Jennifer lived alone in a small but comfortable house, and had looked quite good when she was younger, although time hadn’t been too kind to her, with aged and wrinkling skin, slightly drooping lips, short, grey, and thin hair, and a bit too much fat on her body for her liking. She considered changing out of the pink blouse and sweatpants she was wearing, but decided she was unlikely to work up a sweat. She didn’t really have an
Metroid: HoU: The Royalty Upgrade"The Royalty Upgrade." Samus selected, brushing a few loose strands of hair off her face. The bad thing about her last upgrade was that once she removed the upgrade, she was left with a mountain of useless hair. She had cut it back to normal, if she ever needed to make a wig She took the chip from the machine and plugged it into her zero suit, yet again. So many zero suit upgrades. Maybe she was just doing something wrong when she was choosing them. She wasn't quite sure how it was supposed to make her into royalty, seeing how she couldn't really be any kind of royalty, except for perhaps the queen of her ship, but she waited to see.Metroid: HoU: The Royalty Upgrade in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Samus's suit began to glow, beginning its change as the material softened from shiny latex into a soft silk, becoming thicker in the process. The fabric on her arms parted from the shoulders, darkening into dark blue opera gloves, flaring slightly at the tips. The shoulders puffed up, and resembled a smaller version of her power
Metroid: HoU: The Queen Upgrade"The Queen upgrade!" Samus enthusiastically stated to the computer as she looked over the list. She still had her Royalty upgrade activated, and had just spent the better part of an hour cheerfully examining herself and looking around the ship, too ditzy to remember what she should have been doing. After that, she had finally remembered the upgrades, and had decided it was a better idea to find something she thought would make her prettier. But as she had accessed the computer, still selected on the Royalty upgrade, she saw something called the Queen upgrade attached, listed as an expansion on the original. As such, she had clicked it without any second thought, and was currently taking the chip and trying to remember where to put it. After she finally found it, giving an shout of "Yay!" and a rush of giggling, she waited for the upgrade to take place.Metroid: HoU: The Queen Upgrade in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

A cat of golden fur fell from a blue, cloudless sky. It landed in a patch of tan sand between a busy hamburger drive-thru and a sheriffs office with black-tinted windows and walls the blank color of baked straw. Its legs bent on landing and it shook itself off. Nothing noticed the cat.
Its fur glimmered brightly in the afternoon sun. The patch of sand had been recently been torn up and abandoned by a failed construction project. A swirl of breeze lifted the top layer of sand and teased it around. The cat blinked against the brush of the wind with its also-golden eyes. It turned its head slowly and peered out at the pressure against its dancing whiskers. It gave a soft meow of satisfaction.
The cat peered ahead of it at the fence of widely-spaced, unfinished wood separating the sidewalk and the patch of sand. It moved quickly between one of the gaps and peered down both ends of the sidewalk and into a street. Traffic was stopped at a red light.

"I never expected that your husband would really turn into a teenage girl."
Holly brushed her hair back a few times nervously with her hand as Isabella looked her in the eye with tightly folded arms.
A few moments of silence passed before Holly continued her thought, "I mean it was my intent but like trying to shoot the moon." She gave Isabella a careful little smile that she hoped would be infectious. Isabella's mouth didn't budge.
Holly leaned back in her couch and took a sip of the water she'd brought with her to the living room. She'd picked this location to talk to her friend. It had a cool, nice color to it and there was nothing pointed or dangerous anywhere in the room.
After a quick, room-filling cough, Holly shuffled her legs the other way and tapped them against the carpet. "You probably know that it was Richard who first presented the idea to me. He's always been curious I'm sure you know."
Isabella only allowed herself a sigh but straightene
The Bracelet of Change Part 2He heard soft footfalls on the floor. He turned his head and saw a golden-furred cat ambling across the carpet. It paused halfway between him and the open door. As he looked at it, it seemed as though it were sneering at him. He could feel his baby sister roll out of Elindas grasp to play with his long hair.The Bracelet of Change Part 2 in Fantasy More Like This
Elinda and his mother gasped at the cat. His mother fluttered her hand and urged it, Shoo! This isnt your home. Did you leave the door open?
Elinda assured her that shed locked all the doors and wondered if itd found a way in through the basement. Cal watched the cats golden eyes. Its tail flicked about in constant motion. He watched the air around it. It seemed to contort and shimmer, just like with the bracelet.
Disengaging himself from his relatives and the quilt, Cal stood up carefully, clutched Muttsy under his arm, and told his mother, Ill take it outside.
She nodded and said, Be careful. Dont
The Last Days of the BarentszThe starship UESS Willem Barentsz dropped out of Alderson space, shooting with superluminal speed out of the star 88.-6.134.

"Flawless stopping. My compliments to the pilot. Sensory, can we get a triangulation?"
Captain Stanislaw Khoroushi leaned back in his chair. He had captained the Barentsz for 71 missions, all exploration of heretofore unexplored star systems, and, so far, #72 seemed normal. In front of him, Navigation - Sang-Wook Castro - nodded in contentment, while the hands of Sensory - Nguyet Shizuka - moved across her screen, and she said, "According to outside galaxies, we are inside the Far 3 kpc Arm of the Milky Way. About 330 by 12.5. Scans show one Chthonian-type and one Terran-type. No evidence of interplanetary transit."

You've never been to the Transformed Understanding before, and, to be honest, you weren't sure you wanted to: anything which asks the patrons to take a vow of silence is suspicious in your book, and, just from the name, it sounds like some kind of hippie thing.

You shrug and enter, coming into a waiting area. It looks like it was designed by Apple, all pastel colors and slight curves, and an immaculate floor with no trash, anywhere. The receptionist (who looks college-aged and androgynous as all-get-out) gestures for you to stand up. S/he fits a bracelet on you and says, "Now, I think I can already tell, but are you male or female?"
