    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

    Several college kids head out to the abandoned camp on Crystal Lake to have fun, get sloppy, and maybe test their courage. None of them make it out. Which is inconsequential because this story is about a different college kid who tries to have a good time alone with mixed results.

    Summary

    The Golden Lynel served the Calamity, because it was stronger than him. For a century he stood, alone, destroying all who did not serve Calamity Ganon.

    When a tiny Hylian bested him, over and over again, he came to realize that the boy was stronger even than the Calamity. But with so much enmity between them, could the Champion of Hyrule ever come to trust him and see him as an ally... or something more?

    OR: a tale of cultural differences, unusual friendships, monster love, and well-earned liberation for all of Hyrule.

    Summary

    He proffers the whisky again and this time Childs doesn’t refuse. He shrugs, accepts a glass, and sinks down on the bed, his foreshortened fingers clamped around the tumbler. “You gonna tell me what you dreamed about?”

    “You really want to know?”

    Childs shrugs. There’s a flatness about his eyes, a tension to his shoulders. A tendon in his neck stands out, like he’s bracing himself for what’s coming.

    MacReady swallows. Relishes the burn. “You were one of them,” he says, and Childs doesn’t look up. Just nods as if he’d known. Of course he’d known. Why else would MacReady fight him? What else would MacReady be having nightmares about?
