"Our business here is to be Utopian, to make vivid and credible, if we can, first this facet and then that, of an imaginary whole and happy world."
Another Utopia Falls
Ludwig and Kiku walked down into the lobby of Mercury Suites to see most of the tenets watching two people, covered in dirty clothing, getting carted away by ten people that looked like they were full-time body builders.
The two were struggling to get loose, but the guards knocked them out and carried them away.
Kiku locked eyes with Ludwig, conveying that he knew something was up. Why would they need ten buffed men to drag two scrawny people away?
Everyone went back to minding their own business, making it seem that that was a regular occurrence.
Kiku followed Ludwig up to the front desk where the smug welcoming woman was sitting.
"Excuse me," Ludwig said.
The woman's smiled changed into a pleasant one as she looked at the Me

"Utopia is the grotesque en rose, the need to associate happiness - that is, the improbable - with becoming, and to coerce an optimistic, aerial vision to the point where it rejoins its own source: the very cynicism it sought to combat. In short, a monstrous fantasy."

Another Utopia Falls
Feliciano had no idea where he was. Sure, he knew he was down in Rapture, but how did he end up in a forest? Italy got a bad feeling from this place. The trees didn't feel natural.
He was gazing at the vibrant trees ahead when a bolt of electricity shot through his body and he was thrown back.
"Watch where ye're goin'," a gruff man said. Feliciano groaned and held his throbbing head as he looked up at the man who he bumped into. "I doona believe that they're lettin' anyone into Arcadia these days," the man said to a petite woman on his arm.
The woman giggled and patted the man on the arm in a comforti

There once was a girl who fell down a well.
She wore this cute little bell.
She would ring it all day and all night
Hoping someone would come with a light.
A day turned to a week,
And mind you, this girl was not meek.
She yelled and she screamed,
But no one could hear her, it seemed.
Her parents searched and searched,
But they never bothered to look where the vultures were perched,
A year passed since that day,
And everyone in the town has to say,
"It was a terrible thing that she's gone,
But we knew all along she was a demon spawn."
The ghost of the girl smirked as she stared at the town.
She would make sure that they would be brought down.
The walls of the well had eroded,
And a wave of water exploded.
Out of all the people she snared,
Only two were spared.
Her mom and dad walked around.
They knew their little girl was bound.
They knelled at her shrine
And gave her some food but no wine.
The girl started crying and throu

"It is not a dystopia . . . but like all utopias, failed even before the first shovel struck dirt . . . It doesn't matter if the utopia is in fact realized . . . it is doomed from the moment its founder pronounces the capital "U."

Alfred, aka the personification of America, was amazed at the world around him. He was currently in the Atlantic Ocean, more than eighteen fathoms below the surface and in one of the most futuristic cities in the world. Sure, the decor was fitting for the time period, but the technology wasn't.
Alfred was standing in one of the many glass lined pathways scattered throughout Rapture, staring out at the fish swimming around the buildings. It was truly a beautiful sight, but Alfred couldn't help but think that this paradise could make a complete one-eighty in a matter of days.
"Ah, Mr. Jones," Andrew Ryan, the founder of Rapture, said
