    Summary

    Dr. Liu,

    Got your final report yesterday on Project LV-426. I'm amazed. Great work all around. It's been forwarded to the Chair, our friends at the Pentagon, the Defense Appropriations Committee, and DARPA. The acid-resistant armor is something that should really catch their eye.

    We're expecting some big grant money from this.

    Burke

    Burke,

    Did you read even the executive summary of my report? There are some interesting biomaterials that we could work with, but I stressed, multiple times, that this creature is far too dangerous to even consider using in military research projects. It's aggressive, stupid, vicious, aggressive, impossible to train, and did I mention aggressive?

    . . .their limbs work on hydraulic principles and operate under pressure, which is why they splurt like a popped water balloon when they get hit in those Marine camera feeds we saw. A slight wound to a limb takes them right the hell out of commission, and now your troops have to deal with an insanely aggressive and stupid xenomorphic K-9 unit that oh by the way IS BLEEDING ACID.

    Summary

    Thomas comes swaggering in out of the dark with your dinner, and something else in his other hand. “Pa gave it to me as an early gift,” he says, holding up the flask. “Now I’m man enough to drink, he said.”

    “What’s in it?” you ask, leaving your stew for the moment.

    “Whisky.” Thomas tosses the flask, and you catch it. “Tell me if you like it.”

     

    You've heard it said that most farmhands fall in love with the farmer's daughter, but in this case, it's his son who catches your eye.

    Summary

    A woman tells stories to a man at night - stories that keep her alive. Let it matter that much. -- Minyan.
    The end of every tale in the The One Thousand and One Nights consists of a 'disappearance' of destiny, which sinks back to the somnolence of daily life -- Pier Paolo Pasolini

    Summary

    A loose collection of stories about the women of Narnia. Tagged 'complete', but you never know, I might end up adding more to it - the stories don't follow one overarching plot, and indeed some of them contradict others.
