Comfort
Charon sat on the floor of a rarely frequented corridor, his back pressed against the wall, eyes closed, his arms wrapped around his shivering body. Why had he ever thought this was a good idea, he questioned himself over and over again. He had decided that Xenin, as his friend, had the right to know. Not about his true feelings - that was a secret he was willing to take to his grave - but at least about his feelings towards males in general. It had taken him months to build up the courage. But as soon as he finally felt ready, as he finally stood in front of him to tell him, his courage was drained with each passing second until he couldn't stand it any longer. Not the tension, nor the awkwardness lingering in the air, nor Xenin's surprised stare. All he could do was turn tail and run. But the damage was already done. He had said enough that even the dumbest Echidna could have figured out what was going on. And now he was sitting there, a shivering wreck with a burning sensation in hi

Creatures of the night
At this time of year nightfall was still approaching way too fast. He wished for longer intervals between two phases again, for more time to prepare. But then again, was it even possible to ever be fully prepared for something like this?
Locke closed the door to his lab behind him and turned the key. He had made sure to give the others the impression he would be doing some experiments again that needed his full concentration the whole evening, possibly even the whole night, so no one would enter these rooms but one could never know. Accidentally being found in a state like that was the last he wanted.
At the current moment the lab looked tidier than it had during the rest of this month. Everything was stored away neatly, locked up, secured tightly. More precisely, it looked like the owner expected a hurricane within the walls of Haven.

Bad moon rising
The snow scrunched under his boots as Spectre ran through the forest, narrowly avoiding trees and undergrowth. His sight was quite restricted at this time of the day during which the sun had just set and the moon hadn't risen yet but to him this short period was perfect for an even more effective training. Parkouring through different landscapes under more difficult conditions should also be part of the training of a young Guardian. During the few months since he had taken over Spectre's training Semper Fidelis had mainly focused on controlling Chaos energy though. "You can never become a master at anything if you try to be good at everything the same time", he used to say when the Echidna asked him for a more rigorous training in everything else. That was why Spectre had decided to make his own training plan during some nights. It wouldn't have been the first time that he trained himself - he did that since the end of his childhood. A strange thing to think by someone whose voice had

In my time of dying
They were sinking deeper.
Xenin's grip around Finitevus' body was still tight though it might have been futile by now.
The albino had lost his consciousness a couple of seconds ago.
Never would have thought he would end like this one day, killed by one of his greatest fears.
But thoughts and reality were often two completely different things.
Life wasn't fair.
Had the fightings on Angel Island stopped?
What had this war even been about? How did it start? What did this bastard want to accomplish?
He couldn't remember anymore.
It had started so many years ago.
They probably had stopped since the one who had control over the robot army was drowning together with him right now.
But it was impossible to tell surrounded by near darkness and the sounds that you normally heard underwater in the sea.
Or maybe these dull sounds weren't even the sea and just the pressure on his eardrums.
He didn't know, never had been under the sea.
Oh shut up, sea, someone wants to die in peace here.

Protection
A volley of gunfire was shot at her. Lien-Da quickly dodged behind one of the many metal containers and returned fire. The damaged drone hit the ground. Suddenly she felt pressure against her leg. Her head jerked down and she saw a spider like robot clinging to her - a T-6, the hellburners of robots. Fast, able to climb everywhere and with a tendency to self-destruct once their target was found - and this one already emitted sparks. Lien-Da kicked the robot off and threw herself to the ground. The pressure wave was still strong enough to push her backwards and slam her against another container. For a second the bright light of pain filled her vision. Then a big robot leg stomped in front of her. She had no more time to roll out of the way. A hand grabbed her by the collar and dragged her up.
"Stop this test immediately!" Xenin shouted, fury in his voice. His eyes were fixated on the glass wall giving an overview over the newly renovated battleground hall, his hands grasped the desk in

"Hope that the factory you are about to investigate has an intact roof because the weather looks like it could make a turn for the worst", their pilot reported. A crack of thunder underlined his words. He cursed. “To hell with it, I’m not going to fly any closer to the epicentre of that storm. I’m going to drop you off at the edge of the forest. The factory is three kilometres from there. If you’re fast enough you could reach that before the storm reaches you.”
Xenin nodded. “Easily doable since none of us has to carry a heavy burden anymore.”
He gave Charon a grin which the other male could only return half-heartedly. He knew it was just a joke but – come on; his former armour had hardly been that much of a burden.
Their transportation soared into the air again causing the high grass around them to flutter. From their position they could see high buildings in the distance; most of it was shrouded in mist.

Brotherhood gone bonkers 10
With a bored look on his face Sabre zapped through various surveillance camera channels. He could think of dozens of things that he rather wanted to do right now but at least it kept Locke away from those screens for a little while longer.
("Did you notice that during this whole series Locke was working the surveillance cameras less often than any other Guardian? And still the others think he is there way too often and want to keep him from it all the time." - J.F. Gabrie-Cat)
Sabre pinched his eyes shut a couple of times and rapidly shook his head. Had he really just seen and heard a wisecracking cat sitting in the corner of the room. Dammit, he already had the same hallucinations Spectre once had. The Guardian stood up and stretched his limbs. Maybe a cup of coffee could help.
On his way to the kitchen he nearly crashed into Athair wearing a red cap who ran out of one room while waving around a red painted tennis ball and shouting the battle cry, "I'm going to catch them aaaallll!" T

"Alright, now we need to test your grip", Dr. Dee-Es said, her bright red eyes not leaving her notepad while her partner Dr. Nox prepared the next machinery. "Now hold onto this. Put some more pressure on it. Okay, that's still adjustable but at least the moves are smooth."
The past few hours Charon had spent in the labs doing movements in slow motion like the longest and weirdest Tai Chi exercise, the days before he had been in an artificial coma - kept alive by machines to be upgraded into a better functional machine himself. It had been a process long overdue - delayed by the many wars, the loss of the majority of the project members, the near extinction of the Echidna kind. But now the Grandmasters had called the elite project back to life, under the lead of two scientists of the original project - the albino Dee-Es and her dark furred partner Nox. Charon could say he knew them quite well already - after all it had been them who designed and tested his previous heavy armour.

A song to say goodbye
A soft breeze blew and ruffled up my fur a bit. It brought scent of early spring. Yeah, spring was about to start, not caring that a life had only recently ended… I stood side by side with my other Brotherhood members, our heads lowered; only sometimes glancing at the coffin that would soon be put down to the grave. When I slightly turned my head I locked eyes with our youngest member for a brief moment.  I could see the silent reproach in his red eyes. Or maybe it was just the reflection of my own remorse I saw in them. We all were guilty – were all to blame for the death of this poor soul in some way – for turning our faces away when he needed us the most, for rather caring about our public image than our own family member while his heart was lying in pieces and he was spiralling further and further down into the darkness. The Brotherhood of Guardians – he had been the one choosing the name for us, but as if adding insult to injury we were leaving him dow

(Welcome to Haven. After seven years in development it hopefully was worth my weight. Oh man… I already thought before I would finally finish writing this there would rather be a Half Life 3. And 4.)
Thunderhawk jolted out of sleep thanks to the noise of a jackhammer.
'What in Aurora's name...' he thought while he rubbed his eyes and sleepily rolled out of bed. Not that it would be way too early for anything loud going on in Haven - actually he was surprised that he hadn't been woken earlier by the usual explosions, breaking things or screams - but 3 pm was still way too early for a hung-over Guardian to get up. Slowly he walked down the corridor, trying not to get sick from his own steps, to find the source of the noise.
"Morning", a passing construction worker greeted him and nearly knocked him out with the steel bar he was carrying. Confused and head hurting even more he followed the stranger to the library - at the moment he was too stunned

Yesterday I felt as if I had pretty much reached a breaking point. My job left me completely mentally exhausted, I could barely even function anymore. I repeatedly had the nagging feeling I should feel sorry or apologise for something though I wouldn't have been able to think of a reason for what. Maybe for not breaking my back with even more workload, or for not communicating way more with the colleagues or getting cursed at by even more asshole clients on the phone, or just for simply existing. I also suddenly had a terrible fear of losing my job and never finding another one even though there also was no reason for it - quite the contrary, I even was praised for my hard work by my boss on the same day. Halfway through the day I additionally had one of my stronger migraine attacks but instead of going home I just battled it down with the strongest medications I had with me - which made the exhaustion even worse and also gave me muscle pain.
In short I was a completely burnt out mess of guilt and fear. And then I couldn't even sleep it off because I already woke up at around 5 am, felt too anxious to go back to sleep and got ready for work again (to forget my problems my main solution is ... burying myself in even more work).
I think I'm fine now - at least I was able to function like a robot again at work.
While walking home I saw this animal that just made me think "Is that a dog or has a dingo escaped from the zoo?" And then some seconds later I saw people running after it calling, "Harry, come back here!" A dingo named Harry... I couldn't help it, I just cracked up. :XD: And the people just looked at me as if they thought I was insane.
*goes out with the plan to buy new shoes*
*comes back with a load of games but no shoes*
Why does this always happen to me? :lol: Oh well, it's not like I would need new shoes that urgently anyways. I still have two pairs of sneakers and one pair ofnsandals - that's more than anyone should need anyways.
I was just listening to Moscow by Dschinghis Khan and started thinking - this is a German group, named after a Mongolian leader, they are singing about Russia and the English version of that text was written by a Polish person. And it once was number 1 in Australian charts for six weeks. Has there ever been a more international song? XD
And I think I sound like I am high... The Kiss concert has probably made me high.
Looking forward to the Kiss concert I will visit Sunday evening. Not so much looking forward to having to get home in the middle of the night after that. My mother told me to take a taxi but I don't know... I never feel well in taxis. For the majority of my life it had been drilled into me to never get into any stranger's car and now I would be doing just that.

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 13, 2017, 6:16 AM
Tagged by :iconcharleethecat-bat: 

Rules: (you don't have to follow all of them)

1 - You have to post ALL the rules.
2. Answer 12 questions that you have been asked and then create twelve more questions for the others that you tagged to answer. (If I immediately knew that many question to ask I would have become a journalist)
3. Choose 12 people. (Do I even know that many?)
4. Legitimately tag these 12 people. (Nope)
5. You can't say you don't do tags. ( *throws chair and replies with a happy "Fuck you :heart:"*)
6. Tag backs are ALLOWED.
7. You must do the journal entry. (THAT rule I can follow)

Questions: 

1. What is your birthstone? 
Rose quartz but I can't say I like it.

2. And if that isn't your 
favourite, what's your favourite gemstone? 
Oh, there are a few which I love. Amethyst, onyx, emerald, turquoise, agate,... - well, basically mostly gems that can be green or violet.

3. What are you craving right now? 
Right now a hot bath. Not only because of winter and I just came home in the cold but also because it could ease my muscle pain that I have from sports.

4. If you could live in any fictional universe, what would it be? and where in that universe would you say?  
I have two main choices I couldn't decide between.
Mass Effect - among the crew of the Normandy
Knuckles comics - sneaking around someplace I probably wouldn't be allowed to be in (like Haven, a Legion camp, the Master Emerald chamber,...)

5. List of animal species questions, if you were a marine creature, what would it be? 
Maybe a whale. Although - being an angler fish could be an interesting choice if species as well for a change. :XD:

6. Now, what if you were Avian creature? (Bird)
Either a northern raven (the huge ones - Corvus corax) or some kind of falcon or hawk.

7. Now, what if you were an Insect/Bug? 
Either a cute little ladybug or a praying mantis.

8. Now, Reptile? 
A chameleon or tortoise.

9. And finally, Mammal? 
(Can I pick the whale again? That's a mammal after all. :XD: )
Nah, I think I would like to be a fox.

10. Okay, look up Yandere Simulator Personalities, Which would you be out of them and why? 
I'm a Loner because, well, sounds like me. :XD:
Although, looking through the list of personas not yet included the Sleuth could be fitting as well.

11. What would you rather have, Fangs or Claws? 
I already have fangs - kind of. My teeth at that place are a bit longer. (As a child I seriously tried to file them off at one point)  Having claws like Wolverine would be kinda cool.

12. What's your favourite series, (game, book, tv series, movie, you can do one or all, up to you), would you survive in it? 
Game: Mass Effect, Survival rate: quite high as long as I don't live in the Terminus system or there's another Reaper invasion. Should I be part of the Normandy crew my chance of survival might not be that high anymore though.
Book: the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett. Survival rate: uhh, well... I think if I don't live near the Unseen University (or anywhere near Ankh Morpork to begin with), don't walk into a Koom Valley reenactment between trolls and dwarfs or am not eaten by a crazy Luggage I could live a more or less normal life. Until a screaming wizard flies through my living room an the house gets raided by an army of little blue man...
TV series: MacGyver. Survival rate: As long as I have my Swiss army knife I could survive even the apocalypse. :XD:


  • Listening to: True scary stories on YouTube
  • Reading: Schmitz' Mama by Ralf Schmitz
  • Watching: nothing in particular
  • Playing: Trails of cold steel 2
  • Eating: whatever I find in the fridge
  • Drinking: Orange juice

What would Locke do?
Austria
Why "what would Locke do"? Because I loved to watch MacGyver, Locke is the tech wiz of the Guardians and I simply wanted to combine those two.

~~~***~~~

Name: Just call me Aqua because that's my favourite nickname though I also already went by Xenin sometimes. Heck someone even called me Eric once. :XD: And my co-workers love to call me R2D2, Robot or EDI
Personality: Sarcasm is my second name and though I like to talk with people online sometimes and am active at forums that interest me I am a loner as soon as I go offline. I don't mind living alone for months, to me the perfect relationship is when I see my boyfriend or girlfriend for like two hours a month and while I text my friends now and then a long time can pass before we will meet for the next time. In fact I'm even afraid of signs of affection such as hugs or kisses. I have learned to tolerate them when they come from people I know and trust for years but that neither means I like it nor that I will hug or kiss someone of my own accord.
Favourite genre of music: Hard Rock, House, Metal
Favourite style of art: pencil drawn art
Fandoms: That's hard to choose. I never completely get out of any fandom, they are just swimming around in the big pond of fandoms, some of them will come to the surface once in a while, some new ones will fall in, none of them will ever drown. But I have to say with 10 years staying at the surface my Sonic fandom is the longest one of them all.
Personal Quote: Dreams don't betray us. When we lose ourselves, that's when we lose our dreams. It's not like dreams don't come true. We just give up on them.
Favourite Colour (since that is the most often asked question in all quizzes I ever did as if that was the answer to life, the universe and everything): Purple, violet, lavender, lilac, magenta - well basically all shades of violet. And then also green, emerald, lime-kissed, forest, mint, sea green - basically all shades of green as well.

Facts and Trivia:
:bulletpurple: I'm an Asperger autist. My main way to communicate is the internet, otherwise you might most of the time have problems getting a word out of me. I once had some kind of attest from a doctor when I was a child but my mother threw it away because she couldn't accept it. She accepted the way how I was but not why I was that way.
:bulletpurple: Though I have given up being active on Neopets quite often for a longer time whenever I lost another account (the last one a few weeks ago, frozen for no reason, TNT just seems to hate me) the Altador Cup and the people of my team that I have chosen several years in a row since the very first cup now always managed to draw me back - even if I'm just online for that one month and then the account becomes dead once more.
:bulletpurple: I love my silent famous fanfics nearly more than those who get a lot of comments. A long time ago when I still only wrote in German and only parodies I got some comments that told me how cool my fics were (no constructive critics, only saying they were funny/cool/nice/whatever) but they by far didn't make me as happy as those fics where I at first believed they were completely ignored and then suddenly found out that a pairing I had created suddenly was on 2nd place of the most liked pairings in that fandom or one of my favourite artists on DA draws one of my favourite scenes from one of my fics.
:bulletpurple: It's always good to have some critic on my work what I did good and where I can improve though.
:bulletpurple: I on the other hand am not too good at giving critics and before I only write "nice" or something else as short I rather show that I thought it was nice by favouriting it and only comment when I know more than that to say.
:bulletpurple: In lists like those I tend to write way too much even though I might have planned to answer with just one short sentence before but then I always think of way more explanations.
Interests

Aqua out of order

I know, it's a stupid title...
Well basically, I'm telling with this that I am not dead and probably only not as active anymore as I once had been. Doesn't mean either that I will just let this account die - knowing me it could happen that I check by like only once a month for the next three years and then suddenly jump back into activeness and pop out a story every week.
