: Doc Work you're most proud of
Under the Solar Flares Alarms were still blaring and the faint smell of burned electrical wiring was hanging in the air. If the smoke was hanging in the air, the ventilation system was off line. Mang’s first reaction was to feel her stomach. The twins were moving a little, but nothing seemed to be out of place, which was a very good sign.
“MOM!” she heard Nicola shouting up the companionway accompanied by the heavy thudding of boots.
“I am safe, as are the twins, just shaken. Are you alright?” she shouted back over her shoulder.
“That’s a load off my mind, I’m ok too, just an enormous headache at the moment. I’d just secured my Jitney when all hell, oh sorry, broke loose. The hangar doors won’t close and I had to hand crank the airlock doors. What happened?” gasping for breath as she entered the Control Room.
“GRUNMUNDE, can you turn off the alarms, please, my head hurts enough as it is.” concentrating

Let's Meet a Writer: Stone231
Stone works, but my real name is Samantha.Work you're most proud of:
The Broken Girl and the Broken Boy Aria Emerson was a broken girl. Her beautiful appearance was merely a shell of all the emptiness inside of her. Her smiles concealed the weight of the sorrow and grief she carried to bed with her every night.dA goal(s):
No other living soul knew how she felt. No one knew she cried herself to sleep each night and woke each morning with the thought, Why couldn’t I have just died last night? Nobody ever took her hand, sat her down, and talked to her about how she was and how her day went. She was always surrounded by people, but she still felt alone. Her only true company were the demons clawing at her, begging her for attention.
Aria only had one hope left—to die soon. She’d tried everything to make the pain go away. There were drugs, alcohol, and love—or at least one form of it. It all ended the same. When she came off the high of drugs, reality came crashing down on her like an array of bullets forcing her to feel the pain she
