Written by Charlton_Ghosh

When Faced with Evil

General Irwin Riggs was a sight to behold. His black trench coat and shiny top hat cut his figure out of the fog with terrifying clarity. A double canister gas mask hid his mouth while an eye patch did the same to his right eye. His left eye, glaring out from under the hat brim, was a shocking blue. His brown leather boots crunched through the debris of war as walked forward. A sword, drawn from his walking cane, was the only weapon he had; it was the only weapon he needed.

Vertilline Paige took in this sight from where she lay. The general had a ridiculous amount of strength. He had thrown her Mech suit a good ten feet. Vertilline glanced over at the broken, twisted pile of copper and bronze; steam hissed feebly out of it's torn pipes. She groaned and struggled to her feet, her only weapon was a low voltage Shocker Gun. She clutched it now as though it were the controls to her half ton Mech suit. Her only hope was putting a shock right through his heart. Vertilline watched as General Riggs walked closer. She knit her eyebrows together, what was that dark liquid in between her and Riggs. Baider had called it oil. He said something about explosions, too.

"You can't fight progress." General Riggs voice cut the air.

Vertilline waited until the General's boots were in the puddle. She pulled the trigger on the Gun and pushed the muzzle into the oil.

Grab a pen. Now jot the first thing that crosses your mind--BACKWARDS! This shall now be the heart (5th line) of your new 9 line micropoem.
Written by Charlton_Ghosh in portal Micropoetry

True Story

I was told to write a poem,

"Only nine lines long, is it to be",

That was the decree I received.

Sigh as I might, I have things to do,

"Kitchen the clean too, need I!"

Cry in vain I do,

For no one cares that dishes pile high!

With saddened heart, I finish my write,

Now to the dishes, they give me a fright!

In celebration of the March 28 release of my latest book, FROM ICE TO ASHES (about the birth of a rebellion on Saturn's moon Titan), I'm putting this challenge forth. Tell a story of a rebellion against Earth by an offworld colony. The person whose story moves me most gets digital copies of every scifi book I've ever published. I'll also do a thorough critique of a short story for the winner. Two runners-up get digital copies of FROM ICE TO ASHES. Visit www.rhettbruno.com for more info.

Letter from the Future

Dear past,

     I am sending this letter back in time. I shall spare the details of time travel, just let it be known that small inanimate objects can be sent through time. The past, however, cannot be changed; every time-jump is just a loop of sorts. Because of that, this message is somewhat in vain. There is nothing you can do to change the future. I guess I am writing this because I want somebody to know what happened to Earth, it makes me feel less lonely.

                                                                  ~~~

     I am one of the last people left standing on Earth. The Blue planet, as it has been fondly called, will be destroyed in just two short years. The Council of Solaris 1 has decided that Earth is more trouble than it is worth.

     Oh where did it go wrong? Earth was at an almost complete world peace in the year 2030. We had solved several of the greatest problems. At the top of the list were creating safe nuclear power, and permanently stopping terrorism. Oh of course our Utopia wasn't completely perfect, and some people grumbled. But our greatest thinkers put into action a good format for a Utopian world, and earth was at peace.

     I think the problems started anew when we decided to pursue space colonies. The idea itself wasn't a problem, but Dr. Stephen Johnson, the man who spearheaded the effort, decided to promote utter independence from earth. Almost nobody agreed with him to begin with. But after our solar system was completely settled and we started looking at inter-solar travel, the idea grew in popularity.

     In the year 2100, when the Pluto fleet, Star Hopper, set out for Proxima Centauri, a council convened between Earth and Mars. It was decided that Earth would no longer hold sway over other planets. Our solar system would be ruled planet to planet.

      Many people who had stayed on Earth were somewhat upset. I think they must have been jealous as well. Humans were exploring beyond our solar system while Earthlings seemingly sat at home. To make things more complicated, we were expanding beyond just 'race'. We now had an interplanetary discrepancy to face. The Utopian method Earth had employed, to great affect before, started to crumble.

      A murmur of war started somewhere on Earth, and soon there was a cry for vengeance. Why exactly, I'm not sure. Earthlings felt left behind.

     Mars, the closest planet, felt Earth's hate first. We had out grown atomic bombs at this point. Bombs of that kind were a sort of child's play. Not because their destructive power had gone down, humans simply had got that much meaner. We used Negative Matter. (Technically not truly "negative", it was thus named because of the black hole like destruction it left behind, or rather didn't leave behind.) The greatest atrocity to ever take place in our solar system happened on April 11, 2107. Earth launched two, eight megaton Negative Matter bombs at Mars. The first bomb sucked over half the planet into oblivion. The second one, hitting only seconds after, left just a ring of dust particles, and just like that, an entire planet disappeared. They had no warning, and nobody was confirmed to have escaped.

      The other five planets summoned an emergency council. Earth had amassed several space frigates, rigged for war, and was planning on regaining control of her lost subjects. The other planets declared immediate retaliation.

     Fourteen years of fighting ensued. Earth did not want to give up, and the other planets did not have the luxury of backing down. If they did, they would be ruled by a tyrant of a planet. At this point several million people fled Earth. Most were turned away, only 2.3 million were recorded as accepted on the planet Venus. The rest were doomed to wandering space. They had deserted their planet, and no others would take them. Another key thing that happened during this period was the creation of the Council of Solaris 1. So named because we had already started a massive colonization of several other solar systems. Most notably among them, Proxima Centauri.

     In the year 2121, Earth was beat into submission. All her natural resources had been spent, and water existed only in sparse locations near the poles. Earth was finished. The Council of Solaris 1 sent most of the inhabitants of Earth to prisons spread throughout the solar system. Only four hundred or so people were left on planet Earth.

     The year is currently 2125. The Council of Solaris 1 has condemned Earth to the same fate as Mars. I will be leaving Earth for the final time in just a few days.

     Earth's fate is a sad one, but I think it is a just one. Humans are spread out over fourteen solar systems in all now, and we have yet to find any other life. We have grown much bigger and farther then most people ever imagined and yet we are still tiny little blips on the map of the Milky Way Galaxy.

     Unfortunately this will be the one and only letter I can send. To put things back in time, you need to place them in the exact physical spot you want them to appear. We will be losing more then just a planet. We will be losing a portal to the past as well.

"How quick these unsent letters accumulate!" Write with this theme. Tag with #draftFull. Tag me at the comments section so I can read, k?
Written by Charlton_Ghosh in portal Stream of Consciousness

If I had the Courage

I wrote several letters to you.

They started as a sort of whim.

They became half a baker's dozen.

A collection of writings

from a half baked idea.

I am counting that one letter as half

because it was three sentences long.

I never had the courage to give them to you.

Like the fool I wish I was, I burned the letters.

After ashes were all that remained,

I wished I had burned them with more ceremony.

To late it was.

The unsent, were just that.

I can only wish that I give my letter's, in a dream, to you.

I wished I hadn't burned them.

I wish I had the courage,

To place them in your hands.

The only place,

The letters truly belong.

Define what it means to be an atheist.
Written by Charlton_Ghosh in portal Religion

Defining Atheism (from a Catholic's point of view)

I think if I were to become an Atheist today I would feel empty. It might be somewhat nice, but all the same it would be empty. From what I understand, Atheism promotes the idea that you are a worthless piece of nothing. You are an accident and you technically, statistically, should not exist.

Perhaps people enjoy not being held responsible for their actions. That is why they revert to Atheism. Perhaps people like having a certain amount of moral fluidity. However, I think that ultimately, whether Catholicism is right or wrong in its belief of God, it is the best way to live morally. I believe that if everybody in the world truly followed the ten commandments, we would cut down on world poverty/hunger, we would have no need for wars, there would be no homelessness, and there would be a true global peace.

But Atheism likes not having to bow to anything. Except... Atheists are subjects to a religion of sorts. They have faith in science, they believe that scientists are correct and they have faith that such things as evolution and the big bang happened. They have faith. They just place it in different things. I guess we aren't so different after all.

Inspiration

I want to write,

but I have nothing to say.

I want to lose myself in this art,

but I have no vision to follow.

I want to feel the words being pulled from my mind,

but I have no words to expel.

I want to write,

but I need inspiration.

Fun facts are always awesome, aren't they? Write about 5 different interesting facts that you know about any subject. Tag me too. I want to learn what you know.
Written by Charlton_Ghosh

Useless facts...

Fact 1) Approximately 72.8% of all percentages are made up on the spot. (And the rest of these facts are 100% true!)

Fact 2) 10% of the population is left handed. Of course that means there are only about 700,000,000 (seven hundred million) left handed people in the world.

Fact 3) I googled that last fact.

Fact 4) About 2% of the population have green eyes.

Fact 5) I made up the first fact.

There's just something about Nothing...
Written by Charlton_Ghosh in portal Philosophy

Nothing

Nothing does not exist.

Nothing is nothing.

The only thing that can come from nothing

is nothing.

That's why I'm glad there's something. :)

And I suppose you would say the same of all the aforementioned author's writings. And for that matter, every person who has ever stood on a street corner, written a pamphlet, or spoken out loud. You are proposing that all 7+ billion people on the planet live in the solitude of their own lives and have absolutely no influence on others. Because we are all religious in some sense or another and to some degree. It doesn't matter what you believe in. You believe in something, even if it is "nothing". You pursue that thing you believe in. Most of us call it religion because we are pursuing something higher then ourselves.

You imply that we shouldn't interject with our ideals and ideas. This is a statement made on a website designed for people to write their ideals and ideas. I didn't "interject" anywhere. I made a wrote a post on a website meant for posts. My post was even in line with the writing prompt. You didn't have to read my post about God, but you decided to. 

If you can't handle the fact that other people have conflicting ideas with you, then you will have all sorts of problems on this website. I suggest that if you are truly that sensitive, you either stop reading people's posts or try to get a thicker skin.

Describe the features of five different characters, protagonist and antagonist.
Written by Charlton_Ghosh

Line 'em Up: "The Character Sketch"

Vertilline Paige was proud of her full five feet of height. She was neither thin nor fat. Her dirty blond hair was cut short, and kept in a pony tail. Her welding goggles, seemingly stuck permanently to her head, hid deep brown eyes. Vertilline had incredible strength considering her small build. This was probably due to her working in the Mech shop since she was five.

~~~

Arvin Cob was painfully thin. He appeared even more thin because he was tall. His eyes where deep set and brilliantly green. They somewhat resembled emeralds. His jaw line was fairly square, and he had a small mouth. This gave his face a somewhat pinched expression. However, when he smiled, and he did quite often, his face would light up and shine brightly at whom ever was the recipient of his smile.

~~~

John Baider was big. His nose was big, his eyes were big, his mouth was wide. He was a big man. He had a huge muscular right arm. His left arm had been amputated at the shoulder and was replaced with a fully functional steam powered hydraulic arm, nicknamed "the crusher". His soft gray eyes were a weird contrast to his rough, slightly scared, face.

~~~

General Irwin Riggs was a sight to behold. His black trench coat and shiny top hat cut his figure out of the fog with a terrifying clarity. A double canister gas mask hid his mouth while an eye patch did the same to his right eye. His left eye was a shocking blue. His brown leather boots crunched through the debris of war as slowly walked forward. He raised a sword drawn from his walking cane.

~~~

Prof. Curtis Troup looked up from where he sat. He was a plump fellow with frazzled white hair on his head and face. When standing, his shoulders drooped and his head hung a little forward. He always wore a vest and with his trusty pocket watch at hand. He couldn't have cared less about the time, but he loved the mechanics of the watch.
