The train silently zoomed out of an icy tunnel like a bullet. Onboard was a squad of troops. This was no ordinary train, but a transporter train, and it was carrying a special cargo codenamed C.O.L.O.S.S.U.S, designed for a purpose known only to certain people in higher positions as its top secret. In the passenger aisle, Samuel Kris brought a cup of coffee to a rather bored Riley Winter.
Thomas stared out the window of a beaten truck as the convoy drove across the wasteland. Sahara looked at him while she drove, and she noticed he wasn't drawing like he usually did. "Thomas, is everything okay? You're not drawing like you usually do."
The Voldor Station was busier than usual. Ships full of humans, aliens, cyborgs, and cargo boarded and departed from the docking bays. Flashes of light lit up the space's darkness as new ships appear while old ones depart in warp drives. The announcers' voices echoed in multiple languages throughout the station. A rusty-looking passenger ship landed among one of the docks, opening the doors shortly afterward. Among the passengers exiting, three humanoids squealed and whooped with delight as they pushed their way through, knocking down a couple of passengers. Each of the three wore black jackets with glowing neon stripes streaking down their sleeves, torn skin-tight pants, splattered with mixed colors of blue and purple, and spiked gloves.

Lone Wolf: The Duel
It was morning. The sun rose steadily, igniting the open lands with its light. Birds flew across the sky as they greeted the morning. Just as it sounded peaceful, it all ended when a convoy of four speeding trucks roared across the open en route to a city. An armored soldier, with the rank of captain etched into the shoulder pads, sitting in the passenger seat of one of the trucks was typing on a small keyboard while looking at the transparent screen on the windshield as they approached their destination.Upon zooming in on the city, the radio crackled to life.

Lone Wolf: Predator in the Snow
For the past three hours, it's been snowing, covering the ground in a thick blanket. Lone Wolf remained in prone as he awaited for excavation. Though he was covered in ice, he was quite warm, using a heating device that he took from one of the troops he killed earlier, a device he is now lying on top of, to keep him from freezing. A wolf howled in the distance as the snowy wind blew softly, though Lone Wolf remained still.
Descending Trilogy: Descending Into Darkness
You woke up to the sound of your alarm clock going off and you slammed your hand on the snooze button. You yawned and looked at the clock and saw that it was 8:30 in the morning. Realizing you were late for work, you stumbled out of bed and scrambled onto your feet as you went for your dresser. As you were putting your leg into your pants, you struck your knee on the dresser. You cursed as you hopped on one leg, clutching your knee while wincing in pain. As you struggled to put your other leg into your pants, you were brushing your teeth furiously with the toothbrush you didn't bother to put back in the bathroom with the remaining toothpaste that was on the brush. You stopped brushing for a moment just to pull your pants up with both hands. When you pulled your pants up, you quickly put your socks and shoes on and ran out of the bedroom. You finished brushing your teeth and quickly rinsed your mouth in the kitchen. Knowing you didn't have enough time to fix yourself anything to eat, you grabbed a couple of Pop-tarts from a box and ran out the door. You went to get in your car but the doors were locked and you dug your hands into your pocket to take out the keys, only to realize you left your keys back inside. You swore under your breath and you went back inside, grabbed your keys, and went back out. You got in the car and drove to work. You went to look at your watch, only to realize you left that back home. You slapped the steering wheel in frustration before you arrived at work. After arriving, you quickly walked inside, looked at the clock in the lobby, and saw that it was 8:45. You went for the elevator and you saw that your boss was standing there, glaring at you. You walked into the elevator and stood next to him as the two of you were heading up.
