Stories? We all spend our lives telling them, about this, about that, about people … But some? Some stories are so good we wish they’d never end. They’re so gripping that we’ll go without sleep just to see a little bit more. Some stories bring us laughter and sometimes they bring us tears … but isn’t that what a great story does? Makes you feel? Stories that are so powerful … they really are with us forever.

Winner of the Best Comedy Fan Fic Award of 2010, this story by TimIsWin is one the funniest, craziest Gears fictions of all time.
Succumbing to a brief hiatus, the Gears sit back and listen to Sergeant Lucius Jacquin's stories about his previous occupation as peace officer in one of the most notorious red light districts in Tyrus. Despite waging war against the genocidal Locust horde, Lucius reveals a side of humanity that seems to beg to question what about humanity is worth saving...in the process, Lucius himself has to make a decision what is it that he finds worth fighting for.
Queen Myrrah has declared war on humanity, despite warnings from the Worm Goddess T'Chark that a war with the humans would lead to their destruction. Myrrah has corrupted the Kantus sect and they now preach a false new testament that justifies her actions. One lone Kantus Priestess stands by the ways of old and refuses to let her son be corrupted by the new order.
Marcus Fenix and Dominic Santiago have survived two world wars and the near-extinction of the human race. But with so many years of grueling combat under their belts, one begins to wonder what could possibly keep them going. How have they endured where countless others have not?
A grizzled and scarred Gears veteran, an inexperienced Raven pilot, a whole lot of Grubs, and... a promise.
