Defense Force: Heroes by The Hour Chap 14A few days later Dianna handed Tommy a sketch.
“What’s this Dia?” He looked over the colored drawing.
“A concept for your hero costume, what you thought Abby was just going to let you get her car dirty every time you decided to take a job with us?”
“So I am a member of Defense Force now?”
“Well you were planning to have job over the summer right?”
“Yeah, um is this costume going to be spandex?” She smiled at him.
“No it was going to be like my hoodie, one of Tabitha’s Kevlar cotton hybrids, but if you want it to be spandex…”she winked at him. As if on cue the plump girl in the silver hoodie came up.
“Dianna think you can put a rush job on Tommy’s costume?” The girl adjusted her glasses while catching her breath.
“Why what’s up?” The brunette asked with a smile bright enough to rival the sun.
“The Mayor is honoring us this Saturday!”
The fateful day
Defense Force: Heroes by The Hour Chap 13The green Dodge arrived quickly.
“I love that licenses plate changer you got me Bit. And the 3mr1d5k3r plate you got me.” Emerald Striker commented getting out of the vehicle. Lightning got out of the shotgun seat.
“Well we better follow the sounds of chaos.” The yellow hoodie wearer commented looking at the path craved from destruction before them. Tommy gulped looking at the toppled cars. ‘How is that we can bring forth this much anarchy,’ circled through his mind.
“Alright let’s get after them!” Circuit declared setting her gun to stun.
They proceeded into the thick of things. Loud screams and music drowned out the hero’s shouting of ‘cease and desist’.
“That thing got a megaphone?” Emerald Striker asked poking her girlfriend’s armor.
“Oh it’s got something waaaay better.” Circuit smirked behind her helmet. Suddenly all the electronic devices in the area with a speaker h
Defense Force: Heroes by The Hour Chap 12Tommy and Dianna were silently playing their PSPs when Tabitha and Abby returned.
“Wow they broke from the debating,” Abby whispered into Tabitha's ear. Tabitha couldn't help but giggle a bit, pulling her friends away from their games.
“What's so funny?” Tommy asked.
“Oh nothing. Just the fact you caught super powers!”
“What?” Tommy laughed at the idea.
“It's true,” Abby said turning the television on, “hey they're near downtown. Maybe they busted the punks who hurt ya Bit?” She turned up the news cast.
“We are here in Downtown San Francisco where a protest has turned into a full scale riot!” The reporter said as the background displayed many scenes of chaos. Windows being smashed, cars being toppled. “Police have arrived on scene, in riot gear, however…” That is when a huge missile hit the ground in front of the officers.
“Holy shit,” the quartet of teens said in unison.
Defense Force: Heroes by The Hour Chap 11“Well hi, Abby, Tabitha,” Claudia said brightly inviting her son's best friends in.
“Where is Tommy?” Audrey asked sitting down on the couch as the plump glasses wearer, and the semi-muscular girl in the all but tattered black t-Shirt made their way into the living room.
“We'll ask the questions around here Dr. Harrper!” Tabitha decided to play bad cop.
“What Tabitha means to say Audrey,” Abby began as they sat, and Claudia crawled up with her wife, “Today Tommy made rocks fly.” Tabitha busted out.
“Um what?” His parents scratched their heads in confusion.
“Yeah,” Abby resumed calmly, “and ever since then he's been leaking this ‘other worldly’ radiation. So guess what I am trying to ask is…”
“HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN TURNING HIM INTO AN ALIEN WEAPON!?!?!” Tabitha interrupted. Abby rolled her eyes.
“Is there anything that might not be of this world?” T
Defense Force: Heroes by The Hour Chap 10“Just call Abby,” Tommy complained as he played his PSP in one of Tabitha’s human sized study tubes, “but give me my clothes back!”
“Beat that level yet?” Tabitha attempts to change the subject.
“Call Abby now,” Tommy reiterates ignoring her question, “why did you take my clothes!”
“I mean people don't just spontaneously control rocks, and now you are oozing a strange radiation! I have to get the clothes examined since they might have absorbed a good chunk of it from when you first attacked.”
“You know Abby is smart too, so call her.”
“Maybe after a nap, fresh eyes you.”
“TABITHA CALL ABBY NOW! AND GET ME SOME CLOTHES!”
“Ok, okay.” After a short bit Tommy was sitting in a chair pulling on the shirt that had ‘20% Cooler in 10 Seconds Flat!’ written across it.
“You are cruel Tabitha,” he groaned.
“Sorry, but Winslow is having your clo
Defense Force: Heroes by The Hour Chap 9On their way back out of the office, they noticed that the crowd had grown.
“Last chance on the sunglasses,” Tommy jokingly suggested once more.
“Like you said not many people know I am, it is like I have a secret identity even though I don’t hide it.” Tabitha adjusted her glasses.
“OH BEHOLD MY FELLOW MEMBERS OF THE LONG DEAD MIDDLE CLASS! THERE IS ONE OF THE MURDERS OF OUR SOCIAL CLASS, or as they like to be called a one percenter, TABITHA LANNING!” The leader of this ‘peaceful’ assembly screamed over his megaphone. It was as if he knew that this would change the situation from a soft boil to raging inferno, because almost immediately, members of the gathering broke off and raced towards the young teens.
“Uh, oh,” Tabitha commented as she and Tommy began running away from the gang. Looking back they saw many of them getting weapons, mostly rocks and chunks of concrete, but a few did manage to pick up some pipes out of
Defense Force: Heroes by The Hour Chap 8They proceeded downtown.
“STAND DOWN SAN FRANCISCO!” A group of people shouted in unison.
“Ugh great, Occupy Wall Street ended, now they needed a new target.” Tabitha scowls heading to the Doctor’s office.
“Yeah seems Silicon Valley tech companies are the target now…should I get you some sun glasses?”
“No.” She pouted at her dark skinned companion.
“I’m just saying if I was in your position, I would totally want shades.” Tommy’s golden eyes sparked with nervousness.
“Yeah right,” Tabitha remarked rolling her blue eyes as they walked towards the office.
"I'm serious," Tommy pleaded as Tabitha made her way to the vending machine on the corner.
"Uh huh, sure," Tabitha sarcastically replied as she opened her root beer.
"You quit your diet?"
"No it is diet," Tabitha commented looking over her drink.
"Why are you on it anyway?" Tommy raised an eyebrow, "I mean that 'armor' looked like it w
Defense Force: Heroes by The Hour Chap 7“Was the outfit change really necessary, Tabitha?” Tommy asked as they walked into the lab.
“Yes, yes it was,” Tabitha exclaimed as she rushed to her work bench, lab coat swishing with each step. “Mind handing me the blow torch?” She asked adjusting her goggles and brushing one of her hot pink highlights away.
“Sure,” he hands it to her, “so what are you working on anyway?”
“The reason I'm on my diet.” She says using the blow torch.
Moments of constant work passed until... “Behold!” Tabitha declares as her work bench rises up to reveal.
“Chrome armor?” Tommy suspiciously raised an eyebrow.
“I call it ‘Project Circuit.’ Because ‘Circuit’ would be my super heroine name.”
“What are you talking about?”
“It's just an emergency measure, Tommy. I mean ever since I installed that chip into me,” she instinctively pointed to her
Defense Force: Heroes by The Hour Chap 6 “-so STUPID?” The tall red head with a pixie cut unknowingly and not so eloquently finished the question across town as she slammed the hood of her green 1969 Dodge Challenger down.
“I still can't believe you dumped Tommy, for know-it-all Tabitha, who you constantly argue with all the Abby!” The skinny brunette girl comments as she hands the red head a towel.
“Thanks, Dianna,” Abby replies as she towel off, “, and I didn't dump Tommy we both work better as friends, plus he's not really my type.”
“What a boy? I mean with your Power Girl rack you could have any guy.” Dianna pouted folding her arms over her, certainly flatter than Abby’s, chest.
“No, when I want a guy I want one who's strong, maybe a bit sensitive, and Tommy's just a nice guy. But with the ladies. All I want is at least one of the three Bs, brains, boobs, or bucks, in that order. Bit has all three.”
“Yet her chest is flatter t
Statement of Faith: ArtWhen I write, I write the stories I want to read.
Of course I want critiques and feedback and advice! I want to be a better writer. The better I write, the more I will enjoy rereading it. The more others like it, the better I know I'm writing, and that called positive feedback; I'll know to keep doing what I'm doing. If others like it, if others like it enough to buy it someday, cool! I'm [eventually] publishing for myself and select friends, but if other people want copies and are willing to foot some costs, that means I can afford to print my friends' free copies instead of just giving them a file. I like that. The stories are more real when you can hold them in your hand.
Of course I hope that more of my friends, as well as strangers, will like my stories. These are my worlds, and the more people who are interested in them, the more people available to chat with me about my favorite subj
Why #11 of 31 One-Shots Won't Be Coming (Yet)...To the few of you who are actually reading these, I apologize for not keeping up with them as well as I had planned. I confess that when I original conceived the idea, I skipped ahead to see the songs that would be coming up on shuffle and brainstormed on a few of them just in case I fell behind (like I did) and would be able to write and publish them faster. One such idea was inspired by the eleventh song that came up on the prompt, "A Message From the Man in the Moon" by Allan Jones (and Josephine Baker; it's an old song, but listen to both versions to see if there's one you prefer). It was supposed to explore a scene from "An American Werewolf in London" from the point of view of one of the main characters, the late Jack Goodman.
I know what you're thinking, "Can't she let this whole Werewolf thing go already?" Well, I can't. There's very few movies that have fascinated me like that one has. It's that strange mashup of scary, funny, clever, stupid, silly and depressing that's madden
Artists - The Struggle to ImproveI was originally going to make this a journal entry, but since I feel that it can metaphorically tie it into the title, it can pass as a piece of literature. Because I want this to be something that every artist will see, and hopefully, understand.
For those who dabble in art, whether at the advanced level or as a complete novice, you cannot deny that at some point, it's been brutally frustrating. It's true—we are our own harshest critics, and that can never change. Sitting down and sketching, painting or writing a piece and never being happy with it, wondering if you'll ever improve—it's enough to make you wonder if you're really cut out for this 'arts' thing, and that you'll never be good enough.
I'm here to tell you that you're wrong.
A little but about myself—I've always considered myself to be a writer. I've been writing passionately since the age of six, with such classics as 'The Fruit Parade' and 'Santa's Visit', illustrated with scribbly Crayola markers. I'm
Origins Radio Network - #KickingAssassinAss
Origins Radio Network
We’re back. We’ve got a great show as always. My name is Vibravo Maximum, and this is ORN. I’ve been struggling to get some great guests every week. I don’t understand how Yaleia can get all those female heroes to willingly host her shows. Whatever. Anyway, we got a great show tonight. The show theme tonight is Age of Assassins. Let’s get to it.
My guest tonight is one of the most skilled assassins around. He’s a member of the Assassin’s Guild, which is a prestigious assassin group from Io. I’ve never heard of them, but apparently, they’re really good. Go figure. Anyway, please welcome to the show Cutthroat.
Vibravo: Welcome to the show, Cutthroat. It’s good to be here with you.
Cutthroat: Same here.
Vibravo: So, you’re a unique hero. Your series was cancelled after only one entry. Does that upset you at all?
Cutthroat: Not as much as I would’ve
An Argument for Shulk
With Super Smash Bros. Dimensions just over a month away from launching on the 3DS in Japan, questions concerning the remaining roster are still prominent. Some people are waiting for someone to drop the bomb with a leak, others are doing what they can to dodge leaks so as to not spoil the surprise. We don't know what will happen next, and we won't know for another month or so.
On the flip side, that leaves a little more time for some roster speculation. And today, the focus is on making an argument for a Nintendo character that's been requested quite frequently. (Just in case anyone is wondering, no, it is not Ridley from the Metroid-verse.)
If Operation Rainfall rings any bells, or you subscribed to ChuggaaConroy somewhere within the past few months or more, chances are you know about Xenoblade Chronicles. If you don't, it's a massive open-world RPG that came out near the end of the original Wii's lifecycle. And to say that it was a success is an understat
Money Comm.s Open!So my mother has been having some money problems, and we're pretty much in a ditch, and I pretty much usually shrug it off like "Naw My mom can deal with it" But that's selfish... So I've decided to open money commissions, if anyone is interested.
This is not for my own benefit, this is going entirely to the payment of the house I live in, the food I, my brother, sister Mother and cats eat, AND to the repairs of our car.
If anyone is interested I will work my HARDEST to suit the drawings to your needs-
If you don't like it I redo it until you do.
Still don't like it? Full moneyback.
I would just really like to help my mother out since I never really clean the house of help her with anything.
And sometimes I even act a little spoiled- and I hate it.
So, I am determined to try my hardest to help her out this time.
If anyone has any pocket money they can spend and are interested PLEASE comment below, and even if you aren't interested please wish me luck, because i wish YOU The best
What I think About WerewolvesWhat is it about werewolves, well lycanthropes in general that is so interesting, is it because that people have a deep down desire to experience the primal urge driven by the instinct, to be human and animal in one? People in olden days feared wolves, is it not odd that now wolves are seen as more as a symbol of hunting prowess now? Are werewolves a embodiment of ones desire to be a hunter, to become one with an animal that quite possible resides within a person, in their very soul, that resonates in there very being?
Werewolves are usually portrayed as powerful beasts of viciousness and mindless destruction, is it quite possible that if someone to become a amalgamation of wolf and human that the experience of one instincts being increased to a level never before experienced might be to much for the mind to process, or may it be because that a person's body structure shifts have bones stretch and bend could be so blindingly painful that you are driven mad?
Some people see a wolf as a
My Tribute To My Childhood HeroIf you've been listening to the latest new you would heard that Robin Williams; a man with a great sense of humor and a great heart, he pasted away and in my opinion it was very tragic. His death has been heart wrenching for a bunch of people because he helped a bunch of people with his great sayings and great humor to cheer them up!!
"You must strive to find your voice because the longer you wait to begin the less likely you are to find it all"
what love is not.it was a s l o p p y first kiss where
my drunk lips fumbled against yours.
the dull thwack of my heart,
locked behind curved ribs
cleared my groggy brain,
clouded with lustful premonitions.
it was an e l e c t r i f y i n g first kiss where
you entwined your hands in my hair.
your mouth encompassed mine and
my breath became lost in the steady
of your chest.
it was a s h y first kiss where
i pulled away before you could explore.
your tongue grazed my teeth,
searching for a way past the ivory gates.
i dug my finger into the stubble along your jaw,
my nail lulling your carnal desires.
it was my first kiss with you.
