of the passing taxis on the wet and cold roads. The temperatures were very frigid and unforgiving that winter, it was snowing heavily just about every day, all the pedestrians wore more than one coat.
This man wore a thick, violet trench coat, a blue scarf covered his mouth and nose, his gloves and boots were black like the road. his hair was black and partially slicked back with violet highlights
that stood out brightly; his glasses too were a violet similar to his coat, they were fogged from his own breath. As a black cab finally pulled up, he opened the door and stepped in, "Where to, lad?"
asked the driver.
"ehm, Ash Parkway." he replied, clearing his throat. the driver nodded and pulled away from the curb, the black-haired man sank into the seat as he let the heat from the cab consume him, sinking

My curtains were shut, the only indicator of morning were the birds. In the forest they felt like the alarm clocks of nature. But they definitely sounded more gentle than the PROMETHEUS soundtrack at 5am.
I raised my frill to look around. At 10ft tall, with a 16 foot length you wouldn't think I would be able to fit on any bed. However, my legs could bend in several places. This allowed me to fold them against my ribs and curl into a ball with my tail. The only problem was my frill, but it didn't matter much. I yawned letting out a small raspy hiss. I stretched as far as I could without falling off. Leaning my frill back, I thought about how to expose myself to the public. Thoughts of hunters, scientists, and dissections flashed through my head. But a Xenomorph can't stay cooped up in a claustrophobic house! My mind forgot about all of that as the scent of Bacon fogged my senses.
Carefully, I slid off my bed and stalke

Is it a Dream come true? Or a Nightmare come true?
Please forgive any spelling or grammar errors. You go ahead and try typing with claws. I can't even see the keyboard, not that I'd need to. Where are my manners? Let me introduce myself. Hello, my name is Tristan. Ever since I was 12 I've loved Xenomorphs. If you don't know what those are then stop reading and Netflix Alien and Aliens. I've loved all variations of Xenos. From the warriors from Aliens, to the swimmers from Alien Resurrection. I love them all, even the Predalien from the comics was cool. But my favorite of all, were the Praetorians. They stood 9-11 feet tall and were the Queen's royal guards. They had a crest similar to the queens and were a perfect balance. I liked warriors, I also liked queens, but if I could be any Xenomorph I'd want to be a Praetorian. This is the story about what happens when your wish consumes you.
It all started like any other day. I awoke to the sound of the Prometheus sound

A survivor clouded by his conscience
Crickets chirping, frogs croaking, a river running. A large creature roared to the stars in anger. How long had it been?
It seemed to only remember their silhouettes, not faces.

The sun shined off of my frill as I slowly was awoken from my slumber. I had escaped the police after running far into the woods. But now I was lost. I decided last night that I'd return in a week, but now I didn't know where I was. A human would've been able to tell from the direction the sun was rising. But the light seemed to come from everywhere when I looked for it. I kept my face down and I searched the forest floor for somewhere to hide from the light.
After about 20 minutes of crawling in a desert of blinding light, I believed I had found a cave. My long arms dragged the rest of myself inside and my vision started returning at a rate that felt alien. The bird's annoying chatter had finally stopped. I swear they were laughing
AVP: Welcome To The HiveDarkness and pain, the dream always the same. I would be in a massive void, then I would start to hear voices, screaming and the such. I hated it because I started to always feel the pain, their pain. Pain that I had to inflict, not by choice, but I still did it. They called for me to help but all I wanted to do was block them out, I couldn't help! After a whole night of this I always woke up in a cold sweat, and sometimes a large head ache. And this time was no different.More Like This
I sat up in my bed with a rush, the clock blaring next to me with a big 6:15-AM on it. I hit it shutting the thing up. I reached up and rubbed my head, which hurt beyond belief. It felt like I had just been beaten with a hammer while I slept in the same spot non-stop. And I know who held the hammer, The Xenomorphs, or Aliens to the less educated. I deserved it I guess, for all the times I'd put pain to them. I was a keeper, and even though I hated my job with a passion it kept me alive.
Keepers are kind of like guard
AVP: Alien TeachingsIt's been about four days since I was accepted into the hive and family. All the xenomorphs had forgivin me of my human life and I was thankful, Brutus seemed like a good friend and alright person after I got to know him and he me. Chara and I had been spending most if not all our time together in Regina's area, Regina didn't mind at all and she with Chara were helping me adjust. I still couldn't fully tap into the Hive Mind but I was getting there, I had been able to start hearing other xenomorphs and even look at memories. I avoided the ones about me fearing what I would see.More Like This
Regina and I were trying to get me fully into the Hive Mind again. Thankfully Regina had the patience of a saint times a thousand. I sighed before we had to break it, a head ache forming in me again. "Mother...I just don't get it? Why can't I connect!?" I asked "It needs time Benes, some Little ones aren't born with it and need time. In truth you are progressing marvalously." Regina said patting my head and I sm
Pt 2: Alien queen TFIt wasn't long before Amelia and Christopher noticed that Shara had disappeared, they decided to continue on their way to survey the ship that they had all found themselves on, it had been a while since anything was heard from David and Mark but they just dusted it off to a communication error, even command had stopped checking on them, the last thing to have come through was David and Mark talking amongst themselves, something kept running around in Amelia's mind. How were they going to get out?More Like This
“I think it would be best if we looked for some sort of bridge or something to take the ship back to the planet.” Christopher seemed to speak from Amelia's mind and she quickly nodded in agreement playing with a small piece of equipment the looked like it would hover, analysing the area but it wasn't working properly so she was taping the sphere to a helmet, placing it precariously on top of hers head feeling the weight of the ball pull on the left side of her head.
