1LD R2: A Study in Black Pt 2 The forest was darker than any place Finn had been, alive or dead, even though fireflies surrounded the group and illuminated a small area. They had already passed at least one contestant entangled in what appeared to be a blue rose, but no animals other than the fireflies paid them any mind.
Not that Finn was really paying any attention to the darkness or the fireflies or the strangling roses. Something else had taken over his mind, and even the fact that Scath was likely hot on their trail had taken a back seat to it:
The undeniable fact that everything hurt.
What had started for Finn as a massive pain in his chest had spread quickly to the rest of his body. His legs were the first to stop working, and he collapsed after about five minutes in the forest.
"Finn!" Kylie shouted. She had b
1LD R2: A Study in Black Pt 1 Kylie and Finn walked in the meadow where the arch had released them. The meadow was peaceful: the dawn sun was bright, there was a slight breeze, and the sheep
"Why are those bloody sheep rainbow-colored?" Kylie shouted. The orange and green and blue sheep sat some twenty feet away, grazing happily on the grass and flowers and bleating. "Is there something in the grass about to turn me yellow?!" With that she began hopping from one foot to the other, hoping that she would not catch whatever made the sheep those colors.
Finn chuckled as he put his hands on Kylie's shoulders to stop her from jumping. "It's fine, Miss Kylie," Finn assured with a smile. "There are many other things that are off-color from what they are in the waking world; they are, for the most part, the same as they are when you are awake."
1LD R2: A Study in Black- Pro Zulani stood over a bed in the Serious Injuries Ward in the hospital, one of his hands lifting a sheet from the head of the bed: beneath the sheet lay the still-crackling skeleton of a human, blackened and charred from electrical burns. All of the flesh, muscle and organs were missing, which Zulani assumed they had burned away. A shame, Zulani thought, covering the body once more with the sheet. But there is nothing any one of us could have done to stop it.
Zulani heard a scuttling sound from behind him. He turned around and saw something with the head, skin and teeth of a shark, the tail of some other type of fish, the whiskers of a catfish, six legs similar to those of a lobster, and a large claw in the place of a right hand. His eyes were bright red with vertical slits for pupils. His hair was pale gray and messy, and he wore a
1LD R.1.: Echoes- Prologue Zoe glanced around where the stone arch had spit her out, her knife gripped tightly in her right hand: the grass was a vibrant green even in the low light of the constant dawn, littered with remnants large columns made of white stone. Small white orbs of light floated around the area, some so high up that they could be mistaken for stars, and some were moving almost too fast to be seen. In the distance, about twenty-five miles away, sat large snow-covered mountains, dark clouds veiling their peaks. "I can't clear that in a day," Zoe said to herself. She turned and glared at the arch. "Why couldn't they have put you closer?"
"Closer to what?" said a perky voice from behind Zoe.
Zoe hastily spun around with her knife at the ready, but no one was there. "Down here," the voice said again, and Zoe looked down. The speaker was
Transformers: We Came in WarTransformers: We Came in War
Setting: Sometime during the Bay films
Characters: Optimus Prime
We came to this planet because ours was gone.
The quest for power consumed our home. The need for domination destroyed us. Still we live, and yet there is a piece in each of us that has been decimated forever. We will never recover what we have lost.
I look down upon this planet, and I wonder why we try.
It is evident by now that we have lost the capacity for peace. War follows in our wake. We came to retrieve the AllSpark, which has long since been lost, and we are still here. All that came of attempting to revive our planet was the relocation of the war from our planet of death to this planet of life. There is so much life on this planet. All of it we have sworn to protect. This is the promise we have made to them. But the promise would not need to have been made if we had never co
