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 if I am to care,
I can tell you I won’t tonight.
Death dare not touch me,
Conquest dare not claim me,
Even War will not face me.
For I fear none of them.
I bring death,
I end wars,
Conquest stops in its tracks at the sight of my wings.
No one dares face Pestilence,
For they know who awaits after I place my mark.
Could you be brave enough,
To stare in my eyes,
And stay in my presence for more than a minute?
I know you feel your throat burns,
Your skin becomes pocked,
If you stand with me,
I’ll soon hand you over to death.

Forgiveness for The Bloody SolidersIf you saw her during that time you would know, whatever possessed her took her sanity. The way her eyes would glare at you pierced into any soul and slowly began to suck it out in the most painful way possible. She was the devil. Her forms of torture were cruel and unusual but would always succeed in stripping her victim of all the dignity he had left. Frau Beilschmidt was feared even by her own siblings, though her brother would conquer a country it was their fate that fell into her hands, they would be lucky to escape with their lives.Forgiveness for The Bloody Soliders in Short Stories More Like This

The older brother let go of his younger brother and turned around, a little blonde haired girl peeked out from the other side of door, grey eyes wide and threatening to cloud with tears.
"Please don't fight," she begged, "Could we play together instead?"
Romano sighed letting go of his brother, "Fine Maryland," he grumbled, "What do you want to play?"
A smile came across the little girl's pale face as she took her brothers' hands and led them outside into the garden. It wasn't often that Romano and Italy would come to play with her but she loved it when they did.

"Silence, mutt." Arthas snapped. The fallen prince urged Invincible to move forward.
Death-Howl stayed in place, listening to something in the shadows.

Death-Howl's ear twitched. "MASTER!!" the worgen shrieked as he lept off his hind legs and tackled Arthas to the ground. Death-Howl felt the bitter tip of an arrow pierce his back, too close to the spine for comfort, but at least his master was safe.

Crawling in the dirt with a painful thirst.

Sharp claws rake into my skin
as my blood bursts forth to splatter against the ground
The uneven breathing of my foe
tells me that he too is wounded and close to death
I can see his teeth, flecked with frothing saliva
foaming and spitting as he bellows his name
He charges into me, his frame crashing with mine
the impact has me reeling and I fall back against the stone
The ground feels cold
the icy chill seeping into my bones
the warmth of my blood escapes me
and I can feel myself beginning to fade
Up toward the sky I glance
praying that I might receive assistance
I pray that he who commands me, he who stands above
Will pity his servant and relieve me of this pain...
Yet, my prayers go unheard
Here I lie, slowly fading
slowly drifting into the grey ocean
as the voice that commands me utters my fate:

The name the robots provided, upon their introduction to a curious humanity, would translate roughly to the term, "benefactor", but even if it didn't, such a name would have eventually been coined for them, due to the sheer magnitude of their noble work

An example of this was when Nomoko ordered 10,000 recruitment drones for use in the acquisition of <b>

With its sickening, telltale slap, the cobalt blue kite's tail of one of the glistening black saucers made contact with the lower half of Prin's face. Instantly, 10,000 nano-pincers clenched upon any microscopic epidermal imperfections upon which they could gain purchase. Cementing over the little professor's mouth with the unyielding tautness of layer of paint, the freshly applied Bluetape cut off her belated cry in mid-utterance.
Maggie turned to the sound of the Prin's truncated yelp, and met the same treatment by the second of the flying black beetles. Startled, Maggie reached up to swat at her agile assailant. True to its programming, the RTD evaded the clumsy attack and quickly wrapped the bus driver's arms against her chest in a seamless blue bundle.
With no hands on the control yoke, the bus' own safety measures quickly became an unwitting collaborator in the suddenly
Maid Wars Notes 27: Boudoir of the Beast 06Dr. Stratto's office was abutted by a grandiose series of densely packed bookshelves, occupying three of its four walls from floor to double-height ceiling. This imposing fringe surrounded a plush carpet whose deep green mimicked that of the ubiquitous uniform blazers worn by every student, and whose center bore the gold embroidered roundel crest of the Our Lady of Celestial Light academy.Maid Wars Notes 27: Boudoir of the Beast 06 in Short Stories More Like This
The baronial chamber featured a miniature duplicate statue of the "Man meets Husquon" sculpture that adorned the center of the main campus mall. The room also boasted three globes in a trio of large round wooden armatures. One was of Athena, the planet upon which OLoCL was erected. One was of the planet Mars--barren and red--as it appeared pre-colonization. The third was also of Mars, but post human occupation, with its sweeping patches of blue and green. (There were no globes of Earth.)
There was naturally the expec
Maid Wars Notes 17: Sherwood Nebula and War MagiThough AMAZON has conducted a guerrilla war against FMP for years at this point, unlike similar efforts in the past, they do not operate from an undisclosed location. As a point of fact, everyone knows exactly where the AMAZON's primary base is located. They just can't get to it.Maid Wars Notes 17: Sherwood Nebula and War Magi in Settings More Like This
AMAZON occupies several habitable zone planets orbiting a cluster of stars ensconced within a gigantic nebula known that has come to be known colloquially as Sherwood Forest, due to both MASA and FMP's inability to breach its interior. (Communication is lost with every vessel and reconnaissance drone that has attempted to ventured within.)
Truth be told, the composition of the ionized gases within the Sherwood Forest nebula acts as a unique conductor, supporting energies conducive to the practice of the Metaphysical Sciences, better known to laymen as "magic".
Put in other words, the nebula amplifies the powers of

Well, perhaps not a "ghost," per se.
Tessa Stratto was very much alive, and undoubtedly still terrorizing students back on Our Lady of Celestial Light, with her proprietary blend of oppressive strictness and disquieting detachment. In any case, living or dead, there was no way the headmistress of that august institution would be waiting at the quartermaster's office of an AMAZON armory, seventy-eight light years away.
For one thing, Stratto had no use for what she called "The girl scout militia," and bore zero tolerance toward any references to the urban myth surrounding the supposed "Maid War." Prin herself once had to intervene once on behalf of one of her students, who was threatened with suspension over a reference to the Anti Maidification Army made in a paper discussing the cultural significance of Henry V. The headmistress looked at the entire conflict as

The MASA operative who helped coordinate the mass abduction told the Screen Face carrying it out that there were 30 maidifiables on the bus: 28 students, 1 professor, and 1 female bus operator. After the attack the machines reported back that they had "recruited" the 28 students and the driver, but found a middle schooler, instead of a professor.
The reporting robot informed the operative in order to assure him FMP had observed the secret treaty and not harvested the youth. The operative heard the news and realized he now had a belly full of damage control to do.
In the hospital, in which Prin was admitted following the attack, the traumatized young woman was rousted from a fitful sleep by the tinny, chillingly familiar voice of the Screen
