    That's not Marcus. You gotta follow the rules of the thread to contribute to the thread.

    That being said, the "Next" suggestion remains: Marcus

    Beans, you're "poems" are stupid as fuck. Thus, I'm not continuing and will not continue your requests, and re-start the Fallout Haiku the way it was meant to me. The way I see it, your "poems" are either an attempt at trolling, or plain idiocy. Also... when my topic stated "blades", I didn't mean the weapon. If you ever actually played Fallout 1 you would know I meant the "gang"/community.

    =======================

    Subject: Vera Keyes

    The Fallen Angel
    ----------------------------
    Radiant beauty
    Angel from the high heavens
    Pure Malevolence

    Yet a shadow looms
    Possessed by inner demons
    Suffers deep inside

    Deep inside, Med-X calls
    Could this be an addiction?
    No, it's a burden

    Chains she cannot break
    It's not the withdrawals she fears
    It is mental pain

    Pain Med-X keeps locked away
    A pain she hides from public eyes
    Even from her true love

    But wait! What is this?
    A predator lurks near her
    Watching and waiting

    With dark prying eyes
    But wait! She is not the pray;
    But rather the bait

    Hatred has been brewing
    Two men, vying for power
    But everything ends

    The trap has been set
    Our angel, overtaken
    Sickness turned to greed

    She makes her mistake
    Betraying her own lover
    Wait! Something is wrong

    Horror spreads outside
    It comes in the name of war
    Bearing the end times

    It consumes all things
    Destroying all, even hope
    Lords of destruction

    While death looms outside;
    She's in her room, wrought with guilt
    Anguish brought by sin

    She betrayed her love
    The guilt takes over her mind
    Suicide sets in

    ==============================================

    Notes: Sorry that was so long, however you will find it is still in Haiku format.

    NEXT TOPIC: The Death of the Courier, Vault Dweller, or Chosen One (you decide which of the three)

    I applaud you. Word for word, that's what I wanted to say, but since I didn't want to write a post without contributing a haiku, and I wasn't going to write.... THAT.... "suggestion", I just didn't say anything. But props for that. And also further props for that IMPRESSIVE epic on Vera Keyes. =)

    If you don't mind, I'll just "do justice" to your original suggestion which got perverted, and leave the "next" where you have it, right now.

    "The Blades"

    Misfit outcast band
    Supposedly a mean gang
    But they're just riff raff

    They've got simpletons
    They've got a sexy leader
    They've got kids and bums

    They're not mean raiders
    Sure don't look like "Blades" to me
    Hardly even "gang"

    Seem peaceful, you see
    But Caleb'd care disagree
    To kill em, hired me

    NEXT: (As suggested by Big Boss, not me) The Death of the Courier, Vault Dweller, or Chosen One (you decide which of the three)

    Just to repeat, since the troll doesn't count, NEXT: (As suggested by Big Boss, not me) The Death of the Courier, Vault Dweller, or Chosen One (you decide which of the three)

    Vault Dweller:
    Kicked out of his home,
    Twice in his life.
    He wasn't as strong
    As the wastes he was in.

    Chosen One:
    Sand and bare bones
    Lie in a mix,
    Blue tattered clothes,
    Quest unfulfilled.

    Courier:
    He cheated death once
    He tried to again
    But stimaks have ended
    And so did he.

    NEXT: The Den.

    Thanks, did you see my other one, based off a story of the same name? The Thirteenth Skull Alot of it was written by it's original author, though I edited it a lot.

    Sodom and Gomorrah
    In the Wasteland's Depths
    Lies a town where sin meets man
    Here, all walks of life

    It has long since died
    It's people live among it's corpse
    Where vice and sin spawn

    Truly a Sodom
    The King of the Seven Sins
    Truly Gomorrah

    The Den
    NOTE: This one is still a haiku, but in a much different format, and very mixed up. It's an experimental idea I had, so I'm not surprised if some don't like it. Only one line broke the haiku.

    A Den of Lies (Den)
    A Den of Corruption (Of)
    A Den of Pain (Sin)

    A Den of Valor (Den)
    A Den of Fate, Wisdom (Of)
    A Den of Love (Light)

    A Den of evil and sin
    A Den of light and order
    A Den of mankind's true personality, duality, and capability

    A Den to call home

    Next: Boneyard (Not Adytum, The Cathedral, Gun Runners, Followers, or Blades in specific, just the entire Post-War Los Angeles area as a whole).

    Can we get any mod intervention here? I think this is an outstanding situation that warrants it, for once.

    As for Chosen1's contribution: is that a haiku? I know there's a bit of wiggle room, but I thought it was 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables. His poem on the death of the protagonists was 5, then 4, then 5, then 6 for one, then 4, 4, 4, and 4 for the second, and lastly 5, 5, 6, and 4 for the third. Good poems, but are those haiku?

    Anyway, sorry for not providing my own this time around.
    NEXT is still "Tribals".

    Rewrote mine:

    Angels boneyard,
    A Light shining in darkness.
    Uncertain future.
