That's right folks! For 50 mods!
I have searched everywhere, and iTunes has denied me yet again. Anyone who's done this before knows the drill...
I need a specific song from the Donnie Darko Soundtrack, Mad World by Gary Jules and Michael Andrews...
And yes, it is the song in the new Gears of War commercial...
I will give 50 mods to anyone who can provide me this one song!....
Good Luck and God Speed...
Also, expect a new chapter of HL2: Cerberus soon...
UPDATE!: Contest over! Thank you xboxmox!

HALF-LIFE 2: CERBERUS SPECTRUM
(A fan fiction combining the elements of Half-Life 2 and Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerberus)
Authors Note: Remember, your comments determine whether or not I continue this fic later on, so please critique it in the comment section.
(Opening theme: Ã¢â‚¬Å“MetamorphozeÃ¢â‚¬Â by GACKT)
Chapter One: Ã¢â‚¬Å“Welcome to City 17Ã¢â‚¬Â
Cloud Strife stepped of the train and into the station. As of that moment, he was officially a citizen of City 17. Ã¢â‚¬Å“One of safest urban centers,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Dr. Breen as his looped broadcast played over the large screens in the station. Safe? Yeah right, thought Cloud as he watched several Civil Protection (CP) troops bear down on some man for a likely trivial pursuit. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Tifa,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Cloud to woman following him, Ã¢â‚¬Å“keep close, we donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t want to get separated here.Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“I know that,Ã¢â‚¬Â replied the young women as she tugged at the denim suit that was the required dress of mankind since the rule of the Combine came into place, Ã¢â‚¬Å“if there is one place I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t wan to get lost in, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s he-Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Ã¢â‚¬Å“HEY! GET OFFA ME!Ã¢â‚¬Â
Cloud, Tifa, and a majority of people in the station turned to find the source of the commotion. The sight that caught there eyes stunned them all. The Suppression field that essentially halted human reproductive cycles had gone into place over two decades ago, one of the many measures the Combine had put in place to ensure that no future generations of humans ever came forth. But standing there, being restrained by a Metro cop, was a young girl who couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have been older that 13. Ã¢â‚¬Å“For the last time, LET GO OF ME!Ã¢â‚¬Â she shouted as she tugged at the officerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s tight grip. It appeared that the CP's were just as stunned by the sight as the citizens were. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Officer 6623 to headquarters,Ã¢â‚¬Â said the officer into his radio, Ã¢â‚¬Å“we have aÃ¢â‚¬Â¦anomalyÃ¢â‚¬Â¦here. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m bringing it back to headquarters for further analysis.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Metro cop Central? Over my dead BODY!Ã¢â‚¬Â shouted the girl as she delivered a quick and skill full kick into the Metro copÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s skull, knocking him out. Unfortunately, it also caught the attention of the rest of the CP in the station. Cloud shut his eyes. Great, just great, how many times had he watched someone be brutally killed in front of him since the Combine took over? He lost count at 12. But here it was happening again, and not with just any person, but with a young girl who by all accounts should not even exist. Here he was, just standing there, even if that time long ago, he couldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve made a difference. And here it was, a similar situation, and he was about to do the same thing as he did last time, just stand there and watch, because thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s all anyone could do, right?
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Wow mister, thanks for saving me!Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“Please, for the love of god, donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t mention it,Ã¢â‚¬Â replied Cloud in between heavy breaths, Ã¢â‚¬Å“itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a miracle you can talk this much while running.Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“Well,Ã¢â‚¬Â replied the young girl, Ã¢â‚¬Å“you get used to it in my profession. But man! What you did back there was amazing! I mean, I was surprised when you punched out that first Metro Cop, but then you took that second one and cracked the concrete with his head! Nice work!Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“DidnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t I just say donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t mention it?Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“Hey! Where are we heading?Ã¢â‚¬Â panted Tifa who was bringing up the rear. Ã¢â‚¬Å“The channel weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re running through now has a bunch of sewers that go all through the city. The resistance members built pathways through and around them. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re heading to the lab of a friend of mine named Dr. Kleiner, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s one of the few place in this city thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s sa-GET DOWN!Ã¢â‚¬Â The group grinded to a halt and Cloud and Tifa obeyed, falling to the ground and covering their heads. All they heard were two gunshots and two bodies falling to the ground.
When they looked up, the bodies of two Metro Cops lay dead in the channel. Apparently, they fell off of the bridge above when they were. It mattered little however, as they apparently died when the bullets entered the spot right between their eyes. The young girl was holding a pistol in her hand and breathing heavily. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Sorry,Ã¢â‚¬Â she said, Ã¢â‚¬Å“I shouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t mislead you two; no place in this city is safe, only safer.Ã¢â‚¬Â Cloud was stunned, the sight before him was too unbelievable. Ã¢â‚¬Å“J-just who are you?!Ã¢â‚¬Â he asked. The girl gave a slight grin and replied, Ã¢â‚¬Å“My name is Yuffie, and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m with the resistance.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The group continued to run through the channel for what seemed like hours, when Yuffie suddenly came to a stop. Ã¢â‚¬Å“WhatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the matter?Ã¢â‚¬Â asked Cloud as he and Tifa caught up. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Okay,Ã¢â‚¬Â said the girl as she looked around, Ã¢â‚¬Å“now, which way was it again?Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“WHAT?!Ã¢â‚¬Â shouted Cloud and Tifa simultaneously, Ã¢â‚¬Å“are you saying that weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re lost down here!Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“Uh, pretty much,Ã¢â‚¬Â Yuffie laughed nervously. Ã¢â‚¬Å“But itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not like itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the end of the world here, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m sure that if I just back tra-Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“Freeze, citizen.Ã¢â‚¬Â The sound of cocking of multiple guns got the attention of the group. They looked up to find ten Metro Cops, pistols in hand, surrounding them.
Cloud gulped. It was over, pure and simple. They were going to die here. No matter how skilled the little girl was, there was no way she could beat them all now. So here, in City 17, a spiky-haired corpse was going to lie in a ditch in a canal for the end of time, all because he thought the helping someone out was a good idea in this day and age. He closed his eyes and waited for the inevitable. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Open fire on my mark. Three, two, on-HURK!Ã¢â‚¬Â Cloud opened his eyes to yet another strange sight. Three of the Metro Cops lay on the ground, what looked to be blue electricity crackling through their bodies. Stranger than that, their weapons looked like they were dissolving in a stream of white blue light. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Alright!Ã¢â‚¬Â shouted Yuffie in glee, Ã¢â‚¬Å“nice shot, Vincent!Ã¢â‚¬Â

...I'm gonna let you guys in on my next fanfic project...
It's a little thign I'm doing for my GF, it was inspired by a statement I read on the Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerberus wikipedia entry:
Director Takayoshi Nakazato said that he was a big fan of the PC game Half Life and wanted to turn it into an RPG, and he has done so, in the form of Dirge of Cerberus.
You have three guesses as to what I'm working on, first to get it right gets 10 mods...
Contest Over! The Code was cracked....
Yes, I am working on a FFVII/Half Life cross-over...
I plan to produce one chapter and continue the series after I finish Fullmetalgelion, depending on whether or not me GF likes it...
As for plot details, the basic premise is that it takes place in the HL universe slightly before HL2...
A former Black Mesa security guard named Vincent Valentine is captured by the Combine shortly after the Seven-Hour War and is experimented on. The process leaved him with a metal claw, an unstable and unaging body, and a vengence. Donning an experimental combat-type HEV suit (which is, you guessed it, colored red) he sets out on a quest to free humaniy from the grasp of the Combine. Operating from the shadows, he assits Dr. Freeman any way he can, that is unless, he finds "him", and it he does, all bets are off....

I turned 18 today! I'm legal! I can buy cigarettes and porn! And yet, I could care less...
I hit the point where you cease to see your birthday, or any other holiday for that matter, as a something special a while ago...
What's also strange is that, although I enjoy parties, I don't like receiving gifts...
Don't get me wrong, I enjoy material things as much as the next person, it's just that I hate writing "Thank You Notes" with a passion. I'd rather make a party "gift not required" than write a thank you note (although people never seem to listen to the invitation)...
Well, I'm done pouring out my soul, I'm going home to New Jersey for the weekend on friday. I owe my parents that much....
Eva gets BLEACHED and Fullmetalgelion soon...
I also may do a Haruhi related story soon, keep checking back for more news...

Neon Genesis Evangelion:
The Fullmetal Alchemist
AuthorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Notes: Yeah, it took me forever, but I had to make it perfect, and even now there are parts that IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m unsure of. They say the toughest critic the artist can have is himself. I also know that it's short, but this is supposed to be the conclusion of that other chapter I had a while ago, so don't complain. I know that some of you may have lost your place, but if you scan my Journals, you can easily refresh your memoryÃ¢â‚¬Â¦. Fan art is still needed, SERIOUSLY.
Rei: Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To attainÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
Asuka: Something of equal value must be lost, that is alchemyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s first lawÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
Shinji: Of equivalent exchange. In those days, they believed it to be the worlds one and only truth.

Ch. 14 (Beyond ReasonÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ Part 2)
Edward lay silent as he watched the Angel slowly choke Unit-01 and suffocate the life out of the Third Child. Since the pilot feels any damage an Evangelion takes, Edward was in no position to assist Shinji. It seems that all he could do was watch Shinji die. What happened next, however, was something that would be burned deep into EdÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s mind for the rest of his life. Though it occurred in a matter of seconds, it felt like it took place over hundreds of years.
(Song suggestion: Ã¢â‚¬Å“Eva 00Ã¢â‚¬Â by Shiro Sagisu)
The eyes of Unit-01 lit up like those of demon as its jaw cracked open to let out a horrific, ear-piercing scream. The EvaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s arms rose from its side and grabbed the arms of the Angel. With one almighty lurch, Eva-01 was free of Shito Homunculus GreedÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s grasp. The angel attempted a swift counter-attack, but the blow was blocked by an AT Field. Within the next instant, the Angel was pinned to the ground; the Evangelion raised a fist in the air and brought down a strike that went through the diamond hard armor as though it were paper. Using the hole it created as a starting point, the Monster began violently ripping away at its prey, tearing through the flesh faster than the Angel could regenerate itself. When it found what it was looking for, Eva-01 stopped and raised its prize in the air.
The S2P core glistened with blood as the Ã¢â‚¬Å“Fallen AngelÃ¢â‚¬Â made a half-hearted attempt to grab its life source back. A high-pitched crack later, the stone-power source lay in half on the ground as the Angel dissolved into the same blood red-substance as the last creature. Eva-01 went limp shortly afterward. Edward face conveyed a look of both horror and awe, for even though he was terrified of the scene he had just witnessed, he remember only one other instance in which he had felt this kind of terror, when he stood in front of a certain large gate.
Shinji Ikari woke in his hospital room to find himself surrounded by people. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Hey, heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s awake!Ã¢â‚¬Â said Hyuga. Misato approached him with a look of concern on her face, Ã¢â‚¬Å“How are you feeling, Shinji-kun?Ã¢â‚¬Â. Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m fine,Ã¢â‚¬Â replied Shinji weakly, Ã¢â‚¬Å“I guess.Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“I must say, kid, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m impressed.Ã¢â‚¬Â Shinji turned to find Colonel Roy Mustang, EdwardÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s commanding officer, standing next to Misato. Ã¢â‚¬Å“I never thought that you had that kind of fight in yo-Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Ã¢â‚¬Å“Colonel, please,Ã¢â‚¬Â Misato interrupted, Ã¢â‚¬Å“ShinjiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been through a lot, can we let him rest before we make him relive the experience?Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“Fine,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Mustang, clearly disappointed, Ã¢â‚¬Å“weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll continue this later.Ã¢â‚¬Â
As the crowd made to leave the room, Misato turned to Shinji, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Oh! Shinji, Edward-san is outside, he wanted to speak to you about something, it that alright?Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“S-sure,Ã¢â‚¬Â replied Shinji. When the last person left, Edward walked in, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Hey, how are you doing?Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“Alright,Ã¢â‚¬Â replied Shinji, Ã¢â‚¬Å“I guess. Misato-san said that you had something you wanted to ask me?Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“Yeah, I did,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Edward, his voice was tense, Ã¢â‚¬Å“you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have to answer this now, but I need to know. What exactly happened out there?Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“W-what do you mean?Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“You know what I mean, Shinji, donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t try to hide it.Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“Why do you even want to know?!Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“A lot more than you think hinges on your answer.Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“I-I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t remember, alright! ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s all just a blur to me.Ã¢â‚¬Â Edward sighed with disappointment, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Alright then, have it your way.Ã¢â‚¬Â As Edward made to leave, Shinji clenched his fists. Why would someone want to know that?! What could he possibly gain from it?! What if, if I remain silent, will whatever it is that Ã¢â‚¬Å“hinges on my answerÃ¢â‚¬Â be in trouble? Damnit! I mustnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t run away. I mustnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t run away. I mustnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t run away. I mustnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t run away. I mustnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t run away. I mustnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t run away! Ã¢â‚¬Å“Edward!Ã¢â‚¬Â Shouted Shinji just moments before Ed walked out the door, Ã¢â‚¬Å“It is just a blur to me, but I do kind of remember what it, well, Ã¢â‚¬ËœfeltÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ like.Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“Oh? And what did it Ã¢â‚¬ËœfeelÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ like?Ã¢â‚¬Â ShinjiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s gaze drifted as he recalled the moment, Ã¢â‚¬Å“I was scared out of my mind, but there was the sensation. It was familiar, and warm. And it felt as though,Ã¢â‚¬Â ShinjiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s eyes turned back to Ed, Ã¢â‚¬Å“I was God.Ã¢â‚¬Â

So, recently I've gotten into the very well done Evangelion doujinshi "RETAKE". The plot of RETAKE begins after the events of EoE, when Shinji attempts to strangle Asuka at the Sea of Red. Shinji then wakes up in the hospital to find that the events he experianced from the 12th angel onward were nothing but a dream. Based on the knowledge he gained in the dreams, Shinji littteraly plows through the next two angels, and manages to start a (very) sexual relationship with Asuka. But as with all Predestination Paradoxes, Murphy's Law grabs Shinji by the balls. Shortly after scoring with Asuka, he is haunted by the Vengeful Psychotic Ghost of the Asuka from EoE, pissed off at him for failing to help her before her savage death. From that point on, everything is once again a downward spiral for him, till he hits a point where he is a stituation worse than the one he was in at the start of EoE.
The funny thing is that this remids me of the Black Sabbath song "Iron Man", which according to Wikipedia tells the following story:
In the song, a man goes into the future to see what it is like. When he arrives, he sees the end of the world. He decides to go back to his own world to warn everyone, but on his journey back he enters a magnetic field and somehow his body turns to steel, and therefore people don't listen to him or trust him. He is overcome with rage, and brings about the very end of the world that he'd seen.
It pretty much fits RETAKE to the letter. The final volume of RETAKE will be issued soon, and a conclusion will be brought to the story...
Heavy boots of lead
Fills his victims full of dread
Running as fast as they can
Iron Man lives again!
