2012 teaserIn the year 2012, the United States government declared that from then on the right to privacy would no longer be enforced. Microphones in cell phones would be turned on at all times, as well as cameras, even when the cell phone itself was not powered on. The same concept would be applied to televisions as well, which would be pre-installed in every new home after the declaration. The government would now control all electricity from outlets, turning Electronic Entertainment Devices on and off whenever they saw fit. Following suit of Europe, security cameras would now be placed in bathrooms (as well as every other room), public and private, indoor and outdoor. It became a universally known fact: If you could see the cameras, they could see you. (In all reality, they could probably see you regardless of whether you saw them or not.)
However, not everybody was monitored 24/7. People with severe crimin

It was time to go talk to Charlie. I think Edward was as scared as I was maybe more. He was very rigid and his face expressionless. I always hated not being able to read his expression. I was not at all surprised at Charlies reaction, I had anticipated an almost heart attack anyway. He was coughing, stumbling around, tripping over things, grasping at air as if it was going to support him, etc. I patted him on the back a few times until he regained his composure, sat him down in his chair again, and went back to stand by Edward. Edward felt terrible for making him react this way, but it was going to happen no matter how long we waited.

Neko and Kyo - SittingKyo lay sprawled on the floor of Neko's apartment, his head in his hands. At the moment he was quite happy in this position, he got a good view of Neko's sock-covered legs as she walked around, taking acare of buisness. It was a perfect day, a day when he could just lie around and stare at his girlfriend.More Like This
Neko caught his eye and smiled, deciding to take a break from what she was doing. She walked toward him, hands held behind her back, studying his face. "You know," she stated, getting on her knees next to him, "you look kind of cute like that."
"Kind of?" Kyo asked, spreading his arms out to push himself up. "I thought you picked me over Mason because I'm so hot." He raised an eyebrow.
Neko shook her head, smiling sadly. "I chose you over Mason because I'll never feel that way about him." After seeing the insulted look on his face, she added, "Now, will you give me a kiss if I do this?"
+Crave.Her hand, in mine, was warm and soft. And I have to admit, I was scared.More Like This
There were people everywhere. People I knew. People who could judge. People who, if they noticed, would turn up their nose and look down upon me as long as I lived.
I hate being judged.
So, I was scared.
I twitched my fingers, nervously, weaving them through hers. I needed this. I craved it, the very feeling. I needed someone else's skin in contact with mine. I needed contact. I needed someone. My hand was sore, raw, raw with the absolute need to fulfill this craving that had been denied of me for over a month. Her hand was soft, ladylike, my hand was dry, and rough. Her hand moved, slightly, and I gave it a gentle squeeze.
I was lost, lost in the projection on the screen. There were names, sounds, words coming out of the speaker, flowing through my ear and my brain to be t

How...? How could things go so wrong...?
I... I can still see mouvement... far away... Ah. So the fight isn't even over yet. Great. Here I am, laying in my own blood... Completely useless to them. I can barely stay conscious. But I can't hear anything... Where is the sound? I must be near death by now.
They say... that right before you die, you can see your whole life flash by. I wonder if I'll see mine.
Oh. Another one of my comrads has fallen. Now... I can only see only one of them left standing. She's there, blocking my sight. She must be tired, since I see her panting and her blood is flowing. Only her will keeps her up.
This fight... was supposed to be one-sided, but not in his favor... We trained. We were ready. Or so we thought.
We were wrong. I was wrong.
But I'm getting ahead of myself.
I can see it now. My life started flashing by.
So let me tell you how it all started.

''I want to die before my friends!''
I've always thought about this saying. People around me kept saying it. Haven't you ever heard it, even once? Were people honestly thinking that way...? Was it out of selfishness? Was it to avoid grieving? Was it out of fear...?
I don't know. And no matter how many times I repeat it in my head, I can't understand it. Oh, but I'm not saying I'm any better. No. I'm probably worse.
Unlike the ones saying that, I'd rather live a long life and die last. I want to live on for my fallen friends and be able to tell their story over and over again... Or so I thought. That feeling quickly grew... Quite awful. I started clinging miserably to life. I refuse to die. However bad life turns out, however much blood is spilled- because, yes, my life is a tale of bloodshed- I still refuse to die. Once you die, there is no guarantee you'll get yourself in a place any better. After all, no one ever came back from that so-called paradise. There is no

original lyrics by Joseph Blanchette
I once knew a man,
Who was brave and true,
Righted every wrong,
How I wanted to be him.
Dreams of a man,
Who never given in,
Fought for all that's pure,
A long time ago.
But as the hourglass forever drains,
The brightness of that soul burns nevermore.
Dreams from another age,
Call out to comfort me,
But I cannot hear the voices anymore.
Alone with the thoughts that I hold.
I hear a voice inside
call "Where has my hero gone?
Why did he leave?
I really would like to see him before I go."
What has befallen me?
Selfish and blind,
Maybe you shall see that man again.
