Break Audition: Adventure Time
She came to him, as she always did nowadays, in a dream.
He was walking in High Noon Forest, pacing leisurely through the low litter of dead leaves and looking up at the warm sunlight that filtered through the branches. This was the eastern section of the wood, and the trees that surrounded him were lofty elms, sleek and towering. The sun warmed his face and brought a smile to his lips, and he laughed aloud at the simple joy of being outside. Closing his eyes, he drank in the feeling of warmth on his eyelids, and when he opened them again, she stood before him.
Tall, tall, so impossibly tall. Taller and more beautiful than any creature he had ever seen, in the Fey Lands and certainly in the Lands of Men. She stood with her back to an elm, palms flat against the back and auburn curls cascading down either side of her neck to pool like ruddy froth at her thighs. Today she was dressed in a sweeping gown of emerald green and sunflower yellow silk, with tiny ladybugs as buttons on her bodic

AV Audition: War Games
The wind off the salt flats glittered in the morning air, throwing off thousands of tiny rainbow refractions over the heat of the gladiatorial arena. Though the crowd was large and varied, every spectator shared one thing in common: a pulsing excitement that soaked the stands just as the blood soaked the sand below. Over the intercom, the announcer thundered in five languages, volume turned all the way up in order to be heard above the roar of gunfire from the arena as a man in sleek black power armor pulped yet another piece of the competition with a hail of bullets. Seven fighters of varying styles had fallen to the human called Discipline, brains splattered as they exchanged missile weapons and his high-powered sniper rifle invariably prevailed, bodies torn asunder by the bloom of his shotgun barrel when they attempted to close for melee, or killed by other equally hideous methods. The crowd loved him. Every kill was unique and positively dripped style. He said nothing, he wasted no

A-V Species Ref: Vykladei
Species: Vykladei
Homeworld and Environment: The Vykladei evolved from a reptilian mountain-dweller on a planet warmer and wetter than Earth. They call their homeworld First Nest (Vy - first, klade - nest). As of the Astrum Venatus, the Vykladei have conquered every planet in their immediate solar system and a handful of the nearby ones as well.
First Nest is mostly dense jungle and high mountains. The atmosphere is very carbon dioxide rich and has a grainy, yellowish tinge due to the high amount of trace elements suspended in it from pervasive volcanic eruptions. The average temperature is 87 degrees with between 60 and 80% humidity.
Appearance: Vykladei are bipedal, digitigrade humanoids with distinctly snake- or lizard-like features. Their heads are flattened ovoids mounted on a long, thick neck. Approximately 2/3rds of the head is devoted to a large, unhingable jaw filled with large carnivore teeth. Eyes are wide set and protected by bony ridges. Ears and nose are pits protected by

Chapter 00
He was breathing hard, muscles straining as he lifted the bricks up and set them in place with a dull thud. Reaching down, the boy grasped the next red block, fingers leaving dark smears of mortar and blood as he heaved it on to the top of the waist-high wall. His dark cloak was in disarray, covered in dust and dark stains, revealing the conservative school uniform underneath. Sweat streamed off him, caking on his thin face and running in rivulets down his grime covered cheeks. With an animal-like grunt, he set the last brick of the row and set down another layer of mortar with shaking hands.
As he worked, he talked to himself, a low, feverish counterpoint to the regular thump of stone meeting stone. The words ran together, over and under his gasping breaths, a river of panicked thought. "Had to. It's not a tomb unless it's sealed. He knew what was at stake. Chalk and salt and blood. Had to…" Another row finished, he reached down to grasp the mortar trowel and th

There are a lot of misconceptions about military service in the United States, many of which seem dictated by an individual's political bent as well as the national optempo (operational tempo; frequency of deployment/peacetime/wartime status). In times of peace, those who would like to call themselves 'liberal' popularly consider the Soldier (that is, all of them, as many are unaware of the distinction between the enlisted and the commissioned) someone who is by default woefully underqualified for 'real life' at best, and a brute who simply wishes for a legal venue to blow things up at worst. The conservative thinks little of the Soldier as an individual, but instead thinks of national defense - money for weapons systems, funding cuts for the Veterans' Administration.
In times of war, political necessity dictates that these perceptions change. Conservatives find their aggressive stances on national defense justified in the eyes of much of America, and so liberals must bend. The
