Red like blood, the blood of a girl who'd done nothing wrong. Innocent blood burned the brightest of all, and tonight, the whole world would burn with the blood of innocents. They would scream and tremble and die, as the heroes pretended to save them and only brought their demise down faster, harder, unavoidably. No innocent could stand against a hero. Tonight, though, tonight the heroes would burn with them, as would the whole world, until there was nothing left but broken darkness.

The wildfire raced across the plains, and the world trembled as it was consumed, and the ash fell from the sky.

I like dis

wanna give props to it

Help.

Brock wanted to scream the words out into the night air but his voice had no weight, no volume. Only a harsh cough as an invisible fire swept over his body, the sensation and smell of searing skin trapped within his helmet. Wretching at the stimuli wracking his brain, the aviator grabbed at the flight helmet and tore it off, casting it into the mud as a hand scrambled for the second loaded Luger open his hip. Once his charred fingers found purchase, the burning, scorched pilot slowly made his way to his feet, melting rubber boots depressing the scorched earth beneath him as he activated his jetpack and sailed towards the bubble while all others were distracted amongst fighting each other. With the foam decaying and slashed from her body, Brock could clearly see Myne’s scarred and burnt visage.

Through smoke clouded, tear-filled eyes, Contrail fought through the pain and let out a cry of malice, deactivating his thrusters and pouncing the orchestrator of his agony, pressing the barrel to her forehead and feathering the trigger.


I loved the use of the blur here. Contrail's getting hit with some all-in-his-head effects here, and so reading this post without the blurred text flows perfectly and shows reality, but reading it with the blurred text included also flows perfectly, and shows the side of things that's only in his mind.

(...)he doubted he was going to get paid to think. This didn't seem like that sort of operation.

Quite the opposite, in fact.
This is fucking fantastic

I just want to say, I really enjoy this thread. I find it quite brilliant and inspiring. :D Thought I'd drop by and say so.

She had obviously set off one of the guardians on her way in and, being the calm and sensible person she was, had decided that breaking it was the only way to deal with the situation. How very like her.
Pretty much sums up their relationship.
I look in the water and fear what I see
I know it's no stranger but I know it's not me
My life is a lie that was uttered in jest
If I can't change at all, let me rest

Dude just made the clock song work in text. And in context. This is too awesome to go unremarked.
