Goblin King: Aaand here he is at last! The hero of our little drama. Just in time for the thrilling climax! But wait — a twist! The "hero" isn't one at all. In fact, he never was. Really, Otto, you're just embarrassing yourself with this charade. Granted, you were never on my level, but being a bad guy suited you. Saving that little lady is your last remaining achievement as Spider-Man. When it all goes boom, you'll have nothing left! Hahahaha!

Away down alley, heard woman scream, first bubbling note of city's evening chorus. Approached disturbance. Attempted rape/mugging/both. Cleared throat. The man turned and there was something rewarding in his eyes. Sometimes, the night is generous to me.

Asuka: What do you mean? What is "Dragonfly?"
Sergeant Bir: Code Dragonfly means we're cut off, ma'am. The portal home just slammed shut hard and fast enough to cut a Black Knight in half, I can't raise Avalon on our comms, and whatever that little wave was, it just cut all of us from mental and spiritual contact with Avalon as well. I can't feel the Empire anymore, just everyone right here. That portal wasn't closed by our people, and since it hasn't reopened already, we have to assume it can't. We're cut off, and I have no clue how long that will last. [...] And in accordance with His Majesty's last instructions from His own lips, you are in command until relieved, Lieutenant. Orders, ma'am?
Asuka: Scheiße!

"Misato-san! Um, good morning!" Shinji tried to get his heart rate back down. 'Did she see-'
"Feeling pretty good this morning, Shin-chan?" Misato's expression turned sly. "Really? Singing and dancing around the kitchen at this hour? If you don't cool your jets, Asuka's going to wake up and see you, and I bet she'll guess why~..." she teased with a wink.
'Oh shit, she knows she knows she knows...'

"Even so," said Hippolyta, "she has greater than mortal years ahead of her, but less even than her mother, who renounced immortality at a later date than her, and much less than a pure Amazon who has not renounced the Waters of Youth. So there are fewer days to you, Lyta, than you might expect. Use them wisely while you do have them."
Wonder Woman's eyes widened. "Mother, what are you saying? Are you saying that Lyta has—"
Lyta's eyes were widening at the same time that her skin was flushing crimson.
Diana finally finished the sentence. "—has given herself to a man?"
"Ohhhhhhh, hell," muttered Lyta, and hid her face in her hands.

They heard a growl.
It wasn't just your ordinary growl, from a dog or a wolf. This was a deep growl, the sort of growl that suggested monstrous origins, dark and shadowy nights, and the promise of endless hours of pain. It was accompanied by a blast of cold running down their spines. The two turned around, slowly.
Rei was staring at Asuka, intensely, her face twisted in anger. Her fists were clenched, shaking slightly. It was hard to tell in the sunlight, but they thought they saw her blood red eyes glow brightly for a moment.
"Ohshit," whispered Touji. "She's mad."

Monokuma:Heeheeheeheheheheh... alright, listen up toots! I’m about to explain how split personalities work. Some cases of DID have split personalities happen through changing at mostly on a whim, or whatever! However... you’re not as lucky. Doubtless as you know, your personality switch is triggered by external stimuli. Blood, shocks, whatever works, works. You know what those personality switches are tied to even, yes...?~”
Chihiro: *gets it immediately, and begins tearing up* "N-No... he doesn’t mean...!"
Mondo: *furiously* "Th’ fuck this shitty bear getting at?! He’s seriously pissing me off even more!"
Toko: "W-What, you building that suspense up for n-nothing?" *cocky laugh* "T-The way you put it like that, I honestly w-wonder if you aren’t... aren’t..."
*Toko's face immediately warps in horror upon realizing what Monokuma was implying*
Toko: *paralyzed in fear, tearing up* "I-If... y-you aren’t... T-Tear out my nervous system..."
Another Side: Sporting Hopefuls, precious mere moments before Toko is lobotomized as part of Jack's "Execution"

"Unicron? Looks like im going to be Unigone!" [video ends]

Shepard's eyes widened at Alma's message, and the Ethereal's head snapped up to look past him, going completely still in a manner oddly similar to someone just now realizing they were about to be crushed by a falling space station.

John Grey: We're here to see Professor Charles Xavier.
Bobby Drake: (frowning) He's not here. If you had bothered to make an appointment, you would know he got called out to D.C. last night on urgent business. You wouldn't have ended up pulling me out of bed. The professor isn't going to be back until this afternoon sometime.
Elaine Gray: (glaring) We have a standing invitation to come tour the school and meet the students.
Bobby: You're the Greys? Oh, crap. Professor Xavier is not going to be happy about this.

"Nice move, Shinji," he berated himself as he watched the now wingless and tailless plane start to roll. He had to think and he had to do it fast. He couldn't just grab the plane and stop it, it would pull it apart or kill the passengers or worse. He dove through the smoke, skimmed along the side of the plane, and planted himself on the nose. Spreading his arms wide, he carefully, deliberately started to put pressure on it, first from left to right and then pushing ever so gently up, trying to level it out. It struggled against him, the metal rending at his touch. If he pushed too hard, he'd go right through it and make it worse. Finally, inexorably, it began to straighten and stabilize.
Then he noticed that he'd missed the airport.

Yeah that's nice, only it's not Dragon. I said a dragon. I'm talking about a fire breathing, laser shooting, robot dragon that's tearing up the lobby.

"We have evidence," said Brainiac 5, slowly, "that Darkseid has the son Mordru fathered with Satan Girl."
Kara’s head came up.
"But you can see why we wanted you on board for this one."
"Frab," she said.
Laurel came to stand before her, sympathetically. "Yeah," she said. "My sentiments exactly."

"Look, does it really matter how I know?" Toji asked smugly. "The fact is that unless you want everyone to know who Power Girl is, you'll have to do exactly what I say."
"Which is?" she asked through clenched teeth.
Toji withdrew a very minimal white bikini from somewhere and held it up. "Tomorrow after school, you're going to put this on, along with your mask, cape, and that wig you wear. Then you're going to model while Kensuke takes pictures, and the two of us are going to become obscenely rich."
To the jock's surprise, Asuka's response was to grin. "What…?" he stammered.
"Oh, stooge, you don't know much I've been waiting for a good excuse to hurt you," she said happily, cracking her knuckles.
"Crap," Toji said.

Triela recognised the object from her IED training. An artillery shell, half buried in the mud.
Triela edged away from the deadly speedbump, sliding the bayonet into the ground to check for further unexploded munitions in her path. Insects bit her face and neck, feasted on the dried blood that glistened on the rocks, the sweat and foulness coating her body.
'Definitely shit.'
Ghosts (from "Hunters in the Dolomites"), a Gunslinger Girl fanfic.

The English language did not have a word that encapsulated the utter horror of realising that all your efforts, all your best laid plans and most cunning manoeuvres have been nothing more than a small part of someone else's grander scheme. Nor did it have a word that described the feeling where you thought you were writing your own song, but found that it was merely a small part of a greater symphony. Nor did it have one that described how you felt when, in fact, your very worst fears had just come true. But if there were such words, he would have used them.

"B-but five and a half hours!? And he's after ME!? Shit! ShitShitShit!"
Taylor Herbert reacting to the news that Orion is coming to Earth, Communication

If Harry had needed to formalise the wordless inference that had just flashed into his mind, it would have come out something like, 'If I estimate the probability of Professor McGonagall doing what I just saw as the result of carefully controlling herself, versus the probability distribution for all the things she would do naturally if I made a bad joke, then this behavior is significant evidence for her hiding something.'
But what Harry actually thought was,
Aw crap.

Rikku, Fate/Gamers Only

Looking through the back window of the car, Lennie caught a glimpse of what looked like two red arms. He swore, jerked a thumb in the arms' general direction, and yelled, "We been hijacked!"
"It's him," said his partner. "Oh my God, it's Cap..."
"Yeah," Lennie said, glumly.

Oh crap, thought Ryoga as Cologne disappeared in a blur of speed, and as he looked frantically at Akane, squealing a warning, he thought he saw a strange, small smile on her face...

But then I noticed that the gang leader wasn't looking at me. His gaze was, very, very slowly, turning upwards. That was when we heard a snort behind us. I noticed that I'd been backed into the rock in the middle of the clearing.
It was not a rock.

All she had to do was get her wig out of the tree, get dressed again, and get back to her room by bed check. Actually, she wanted some time before that so that she could get some studying done. She'd already read all of her textbooks all the way through the day she got them, but it looked suspicious if she didn't study.
It was no big trick to keep track of what tree she had thrown the wig into. She headed for it, scanned ahead with her super-vision.
She stopped breathing, almost stopped moving.
The wig wasn't where she'd left it.
"Sheol," she whispered, and hoped Kal hadn't heard her.

"So much for trust, I guess. We saw your men outside." Nakayima said, speaking what Misato was thinking.
"Yeah, we noticed," Miko sounded upset. She had not said anything since the suggestion that Keiko might be interrogated came up. "They stick out like sore thumbs."
Sato frowned and looked around the table, from her to Nakayima to Misato. "What are you talking about? My soldiers are invisible—- only Section 2 can be that obvious. I came alone."
A sudden chill ran down Misato's spine and she felt as if someone had punched her in the stomach. She exchanged a horrified look with Nakayima. He knew it too. "Ah, shit!"

I will never forget the look on their faces. All eight of them. Their faces dropped. All their courage and strength was drained right from their bodies. They had a reputation for breaking up bars, but they knew that instant, they'd made a fatal mistake. This time they walked into the wrong bar.

Frodo: Alright. We put [the One Ring] away. We keep it hidden, we never speak of it again. No one knows it's here, do they? ...Do they, Gandalf?
Gandalf: There is one other who knew Bilbo had the Ring. I looked everywhere for the creature Gollum, but the Enemy found him first.
(cut to Sauron's minions having caught Gollum and torturing him)
Gandalf (voiceover): I don't know how long they tortured him, but through the endless screaming and inane babble, they discerned two words:

A Westerner faced with a suicide bomber goes to pieces. Believe me, I have seen this. Just as I have seen people's reactions to other stressful situations: criminals in the electric chair, a person in water confronted by sharks. Oh, to be sure, I love to observe the look of pure horror that crosses a man's face when he realizes that he is, without doubt, going to die...
And that is the look I'm talking about.

'Do you hear what I say? This is where dreams - dreams, do you understand, come to life, come real. Not daydreams: Dreams!'
There was about half a minute’s silence and then, with a great clatter of armor, the whole crew were tumbling down the main hatch as quick as they could and flinging themselves on the oars to row as they had never rowed before...

Not wishing to see even Buster transformed into Hamburger Surprise before our eyes - neither Eddie nor I had a particularly strong stomach - we pointed toward the bull, a four-legged Guernsey locomotive roaring down on the unsuspecting victim. Buster glanced casually in the direction of our pointing, as though expecting a trick. His eyeballs shot out a good six inches and snapped back, somewhat on the order of the paddleball an aunt had given me for Christmas.

We're sitting in the back,
And we just started getting busy
When she whispered, "What was that?"
"The wind, I think 'cause no one else knows where we are."
And that was when she started screaming,
"That's my dad outside the car!"
Oh please, the keys, they're not in the ignition!
Must have wound up on the floor while
We were switching our positions.
I guess they knew that she was missing
As I tried to tell her dad it was her mouth that I was kissing!

Spectrum Communication Guy: Spectrum New York reports body of Captain Brown found near scene of car crash.
Lieutenant Green: What does this mean, sir?
Colonel White: The Captain Brown who escorted the President must have been an imposter. Something happened at that car crash that we don't understand.
Lieutenant Green: But Captain Scarlet was there...
Colonel White: Captain Scarlet... whatever happened to Captain Brown may also have happened to Captain Scarlet! Lieutenant Green, contact Destiny Angel immediately, and tell her to escort Captain Scarlet back to the carrier.

Destiny Angel: You are to return to Cloudbase immediately. [beat] Captain Scarlet, did you receive my message? Cloudbase, Captain Scarlet does not answer.
Colonel White: Something has happened to Captain Scarlet. Somehow, the Mysterons have affected him. That means the President is in grave danger.

Iago: You d-don't intend to kill me, do you?! Your king's trusted g-general? That's not very becoming of a N-Nohrian royal, now is it?!
Xander: Say what you will, coward. Our father is not here to protect his lapdog. We'll tell him you were murdered by some remaining Hoshidan rebels. How tragic.
Iago: What?! No! That's deceitful! It's traitorous! It's—
Elise: Hmph! Who are you to judge us?! You and Hans have done nothing but awful things to innocent people for years! And what's more, you've been openly mean to Corrin! I've always hated you two! It's time to pay for being such big jerks!!
Camilla: Hmm, well, I perhaps don't feel as strongly as our little Elise here... But anyone who tries to hurt my darling Corrin most certainly deserves death. It's only fair. You're ready to die now, I hope?

Jeremy's body seemed to know what was coming even before impact, and the rodent part of his brain engaged its natural defenses. He went limp on the way up, hoping the predator would mistake him for dead. Post-impact, it was a different story. While wide awake, each of Jeremy Bullock's limbs tried to escape from his body in different directions, probably to find four different lawyers to sue the fight promoter that allowed this circus. Ike Turner has been in fairer fights than this.

"You know what's funny is that she (Carmilla's Mother) kind of did (get everything she wanted). I mean...she wanted the board out of the way. She wanted the Corvette controlling the campus.
