The Individual took a few steps back and closed the briefcase. He analyzed the situation immediately, they wanted their money back.
"Sorry, business in this sector isn't always fair." the client sighed, "shame you have too learn the hard way", the client turned and began to return to his limo. The Individual brought out a handle, a simple one with a bulk of technology at the top. The two large men laughed as they closed in on him.
The individual simply pressed a button on the top of the handle and a thick, curved, and glowing bulk of plasma surged outward into a blade, it's plasma dripped onto the metal floor and instantly sizzled it. The men charged at the notice, their clubs ready for strike as the Individual crouched down.
The first hit came from the side, the club holder's hand was lopped cleanly off; his blood spewed from the abrupt loss, and the man backed up, roaring wildly at the sudden uselessness of it. The other man swung at the Individual, connecting with a painful 'FUMP'.
Space... An infinite void; once wide
and free, has been choked with fierce law and the unstoppable
corruption of all. Our galaxy had begun as a prosperous whole, all
species working tirelessly to keep it running, only to have it fall
unto the most basic of evils. And from that, it grew. Growing until
it was tameable only through death. War is easy to deal with, but
corruption inside of one's own empire is utterly horrible. But none

in-front of his very eyes. He shed no tears, for when your beating
down those responsible with a led pipe; there's no reason to.
After that, the individual set out to
make a name of himself; to let all know of his power and cr
five.Five is the number of times you worry he’s stopped breathing, as the surgeons carve around his heart, twisting away the plaque ridden arteries, and pulling a vein out of his leg. Five is the number of heart wrenching hours you and your family were waiting in the hospital room, worried that your lives would crumble, that there would be five members of the family instead of six, that five days out of the week he would not come home for dinner, that five kisses from him would no longer be given to his wife and four children. Five was the amount of fingernails you bit off while watching people enter and exit the waiting room, and the amount of minutes your mother spent on the phone, explaining that something was wrong. Five is the critical difference between holding a father’s hand as your mother cries into his heart shaped pillow. The difference between rejoicing and smiling weakly because he’s okay or carrying your father’s American-flag-covered-casket and watchin
A Guide to Writing DialogueWhat is dialogue, exactly? The definition from Merriam-Webster’s dictionary was several lines long, so I shall summarize it in a short sentence for the sake of the readers; it’s the writing that illustrates conversations between two or more characters in a story. We read and hear it all around us, but creating it in your own work can be a challenge. However, if you find dialogue an obstacle in your writing, then don’t push the panic button. In this tutorial, you’ll find by analyzing what dialogue can do and how to use it, you can turn your greatest fear into your greatest ally in your story.
What dialogue is
Like I’ve asserted before, dialogue is basically what the characters are saying to each other. It can be found in multiple mediums such as books, movies, comics, video games, etc. We even engage in dialogue daily without even thinking.
