Valentine TraditionJohn lay flat on the ground, trying to keep as quiet as he could so the marines wouldn't notice him. He was hidden under a parked warthog, watching a group of soldiers that were sitting around outside their barracks and drinking some sort of alcoholic beverage. A small amount of motion drew his attention to the trainee laying beside him under the vehicle. Kelly's fingers drummed idly on the dirt. She was clearly impatient to get moving, as going slow or being still were always a bother to her. John felt slightly guilty that they had to wait because of him. Their way out of the camp was across a large stretch of open ground; and while Kelly could make the run without anyone seeing, John was too slow and would certainly get caught, thereby compromising their mission. They would just have to stay here until the soldiers cleared out and it would be safe to move, which hopefully wouldn't be too long.
Kelly's hand then moved to settle over John's, gripping it loosely, though her eyes stayed
2556Being augmented poses a particular problem that is very unique to Spartans: namely, where to get a good workout. When you have super-human strength you can lift the same amount of weight a professional body builder would struggle with and not break a sweat. That problem was the reason why a good deal of research and money had been put into designing a gym on Infinity's S-Deck where a Spartan could exercise effectively. The gravity in the gym was higher than normal, so the only soldiers who were ever there were S-IVs. But at times like this, when the Spartans were running war games, it was oddly quiet. But that was exactly why Buck had chosen this time to get his blood pumping. He sat on one of the stationary bikes that had been specially designed to provide the resistance that a Spartan needed. He settled into place and stated to peddle. His forearms rested against the handle bars as he worked into a steady pace.
"No upper body routine today?" a voice asked, catching Buck's attention.
Halo 4Kelly ran through the forest, rather annoyed by it all. The Spartan IIs had been sent out from the Infinity to check out the area and when those things had attacked, she got separated from the rest of the Spartan IIs. She was making her way through the forest, trying to find a way to get away from the teleporting enemies. To her it was sort of cheating. She got away or attacked enemies based on speed. She was sure the only reason they were able to keep up with her were their odd teleporting ability.
Kelly reached a sort of clearing, that was a much of a clearing as it could be. It was really just a space that there were no trees on the ground, but the trees above still covered the area with their leaves above. One of the teleporting enemies appeared before her, but its actual reflexes weren't fast enough. She ducked under it and moved around the foe. She darted out of the way of a second, but it left her too focused on them and she tripped over something. Kelly fell forward but managed
Kelly was crouched beside the medical pack, searching through it to see what supplies were left. They had used a small amount of their biofoam filling a bullet wound in Linda's thigh, as well as some of their bandages, but otherwise were still well stocked. Not bad considering they’d already been on the planet for a week. She carefully re-packed the supplies, checking each one a second time for any damage or contamination. She didn't turn as another Spartan moved up beside her. "What do you need, Chief? If you're looking for the band-aids with the little lightning bolts printed on them you're out of luck, we’re fresh out."
"Actually I was hoping for a lollipop," John replied to the joke as he opened up a private COM channel with her. Kelly finally turned to look at him and tilted her head, silently asking him what he needed. "How are we doing on medical supplies?"
Kelly knew that he knew what supplies had been used thus far. So why would John be asking her for information h
2554The front of the place still bore bullet holes and plasma scars. They kind of added to its charm. At least they'd cleaned up the blood.
The inside looked like someone had gutted it from stem to stern and then gotten bored with the refurb and just started tossing tables and stools into it until it felt more like a bar. The place stood empty except for a couple of retired fishers who were old enough to prefer talking about the sea to actually being on it. I didn't recognize the bartender, but that wasn't any surprise either.
After a bit of chitchat, I started in on a bottle of some local-made baijiu. I didn't have any plans to stop.
I was half way through my drink when Sarah sat herself down in the seat beside me. She didn't say anything, or really make any sign she was aware that I was beside her, so I ignored her as well. The bartender approached and set a drink down in front of her without comment and giving her a charming smile. I couldn't help but feel jealous. Not because he was fl
Auri jerks out of bed for a moment and glances around the her dark bedroom, waiting for her eyes to adjust. She sits up in bed and yawns before she reaches for the light switch on her lamp nearby when she hears a sudden creak of metal outside. The Four freezes for a moment and listens hard.
She hears the creak again only this time it is fainter, sounding off farther down.
Is someone trying to get in? the commander thinks to herself as she gets out of from under the warm covers. Once her bare feet hit the cold metal flooring, she's grateful she had slept in warm clothes. The winters at this base were brutal, the captain had told her and he was right. The Four reaches into her nightstand nearby and picks up her pistol before she pads quietly across the room to her door. She eases it open and glances out. Blue eyes squint into the darkness before she opens the door.
Silence greets the Spartan as she steps out into the dark hallway. She looks left and right before walking forw
They Have Returned Ch. 1
"Alright Ghost team," began Commander Palmer, "just got word from the eggheads up top that one of their research facilities has gone dark. They've tried ever channel they could think of and they have been unsuccessful in raising their buddies. They think the Covies broke in, jammed their signal, and think the bastards are in the process of breaking into some pretty sensitive data files. That's where you guys come in. What I want from you is to infiltrate the facility, kill any alien bastard that gets in your way, find a terminal, copy the data, and purge the building."
"What do you mean by 'purge', Commander?" asked a Spartan named Daniels.
Palmer gave him a look. "Apparently the eggheads say that the facility is already too far gone to recover. They don't want the Covenant getting their hands on anything that would benefit them in any way," Palmer explained, "That's why we have to level it. Demolition charges are already packed in the pelican. Commander Rachel Auri will be l
RQ2: Anonymous -again- PT.2The City, 10:00AM
Jakob: So...how many more walking minutes left?
Kathrine: Not many. Perry's organised a day out for most of his friends for a theme park, including Sonic, Shadow, Silver, Knuckles and Rouge, plus myself.
Sonnika: How convinient.
Kathrine: Indeed. He's gathering all of them at the coach, so we better hurry. We don't want to be late for meeting your relatives, do you?
Sonnika: Of course not!
Kunxia: I dunno. I'm pretty sure that I can wait for my counterpart.
Silvi: I wouldn't worry too much. Apparantly, he's the guardian of the Master Emerald.
Ricky: Sounds like a very powerful jewel.
Kathrine: That's basicaly it. And the number of times he's lost it due to him being the most gullible thing alive? It goes into the 1000's.
Sonnika: Don't listen to her. It's her personel opinion. You can see what the REAL Knuckles is like when you see him...
Knuxia: We'll see about that...
(soon, the City bus stop comes into view. Perry, wearing a sun visor, is checking a c
Costume in A Can Season 2: A New Seller
“Yeah, sorry man,” JD shrugged, “We just don’t have that kind of can here. Though if you want, we have plenty of Fairy Tail cans left.”
“No thanks,” Jet said, looking rather disappointed in what had just happened. The young man with dark hair had heard about this particular garage sale, in this massive neighborhood sea of garage sales, selling a particularly interesting product. One that could change a person into a whole other being from an anime and all it involved was a spray can.
Rachel said with a concerned look, “You sure? We hate for you to have come all the way out here without going home with anything. You sure you are not interested in any of the other varieties we got?”
“Sorry,” he stated, “I was only interested in trying one that was Persona related.
Costume in a Can Season 2: Disbelief Surprise
“Anything happen while I was gone?” JD asked Melissa, stepping out of the house through the garage door.
“Hmmm…” Melissa replied as she hung some shirts up on the clothing rack, “Let’s see… someone bought a shirt, a mom and her kid browsed through some of the video games, Bigfoot bought some of your sandals, and a meteor struck your car in the five minutes you were away in the bathroom.”
“Ha ha,” JD said, rolling your eyes.
“You are not missing anything major every time you walk into the house for a small break,” she flatly stated, “You don’t need to ask us if anything happened every time. We’ll tell you.”
“Right…” he sighed, walking over to the table. It was a few hours after the neighborhood garage sale began and there had been a steady stream of people coming by, occasionally buying something of interest. Most of the people who did buy things at t
Costume in a Can Season 2: The Sales Go On
“This is going perfectly!” Traci happily laughed, “Everything is coming up Traci!” It was a few hours later and the annual neighborhood garage sale was going strongly. Ever since people discovered Traci’s own home-brewed Costume in a Can, she and her coven had experienced an increase in customers.
To Traci, it wasn’t a big surprise. After all, her next door rivals were selling CiaC spray cans that only offered a limited range of anime girls from just one or two series. Her product? A person could turn into almost any girl or woman from almost any anime. Sure, it took a lot of time to craft the potion the right way, but it was worth it.
“Got some more spray cans!” Eve said as she walked up to the prideful woman. The young apprentice witch held ten more tin containers of the substance, which would be an easy 150 dollars at the price and rate t
Costume in a Can Season 2: Across the Fence Pride
“I just don’t get this,” Cassidy sighed, “What is your deal with our neighbors and trying to beat them? This isn’t a competition and frankly, I don’t think they’ll care.” It was the second day of the yearly neighborhood garage sale. It was a time when the whole area come together to form a huge sale extravaganza. Every home was selling or almost practically giving away old or unneeded things they didn’t want any more or stuff they homemade. It was a huge event and it brought the community closer to each other… in theory anyways.
“It is!” Traci stated, looking up from her work bench, “Those fools next door are selling things that can transform people! That’s high level magic and they are practically giving away that crap!”
Her superior rolled her eyes and replied, “Technically, it’s high level s
Soul Calibur TG-Sophitia
Nick was in love. Not with any girl, but with Sophitia. Yes she made be a Fantasy character. But that's what Nick loved about her. He would come home everyday and turn on Soul Calibur 3, just to get a look at her.
Nick turned on the game one day, but the screen was black. Confused, he turned off the console and tried again, the screen was still black. The Zasalamel's face appeared.
"If you love her so much, you shall become her." He said. Nick pondered this and suddenly felt very cold. When he looked down, he realized his clothes had vanished! He desperately looked for something to wear, but only found Sophitia's dress and metal brassiere. Finally giving up, he strapped the metal brassiere on, then stepped into the dress. The metal and silk felt cold against his skin, but soon warmed him up. It was then that he felt something disappearing. Looking down, he watched as the bulge in his dress s
Soul Calibur TG-Tira
Mark loved Tira. She wore the most revealing outfits in Soul Calibur 3 than any other girl except Ivy. He would play as Tira almost every time he played Soul Calibur.
One day, as he was playing, his game froze. Ticked, he got up to smack it. As he did, he fell through into a portal, his clothes tearing and shredding. When he landed in a forest, his shirt had a hole, revealing his stomach, and a thin strap over his chest. His jeans where shredded and the leggings were missing. His boots had somehow grown up to his knees and his socks reached the mid-section of his thighs. His torn shirt jeans, and boots became a lime-green color with purple stripes across the sides. His socks became a deep shade of purple. A purple stripe appeared under his right eye and a purple dot appeared under his left. His body lost all of its hair and his stomach and hips developed very feminine curves. His pants tight
Soul Calibur TG-Cassandra
Rick had always loved the Soul Calibur 3 girls, especially Cassandra. There would be days where he wished she was real, where he could actually talk to her, be with her.
Rick came home after a tiring day at the high school and decided to play Soul Calibur to relieve him of his stress, regardless of the thunderstorm raging outside. He popped in the Game disk and waited for it to load.
"Welcome. To a new stage in history." The Game's narrator said like it always did. Rick selected the Tales of Souls mode and choose Cassandra to be his character. After the Background about Cassandra flowed off the screen, a lightning bolt struck his PS2 console and the world around Rick changed into a white room. Rick felt a slight pinching in his stomach and watched as it flattened, his waist shrinking and his hips growing. His shirt sleeves shrank in and the front of his shirt opened up into a cleavage reveal
