You chose THAT Ending?
...the baby Juno shining and floating and spinning with her arms
outstretched, a tiny gyroscopic Christ-figure, spinning yet
faster, with blinding speed until we cannot see her as anything
but a violent blur. Then she stops suddenly, hanging in the
Everyone silent except Marucia and Niels, she screams "Junoooo!",
he shouts "Nooooo!" Then everyone screams in horror.
The child has swollen up to many times its size, and is now round
like a blown-up baloon ready to burst, blood and shit and drool
drip from every stretched out orifice, her eyes bulging and ready
to pop out of her deformed head. It croaks a weak, pathetic
"Mama..." and then splits open, almost exploding.
Something white and bulbous and veiny bulges its way out of the
blasted baby body, an ugly floating THING that has never before
been seen upon Earth, an alien life-form. It throbs, sucks the
ruined baby flesh inside its membraneous skin by osmosis, and
grows very suddenly to twice its size. A writhing whipping
ganglia spurts out of the round bulk, grows, and waves around the
room like a tentacle.
Pixi Nairobi is too close--it lashes out at her and makes a
whiplike contact. She screams once, then the beautiful blonde
bombshellette explodes, or seems to turn inside out, and is
sucked instantly into the tentacle.
Now people are really screaming--me too--we all panic. We
run for the door, but the monster has again become larger, and
another three tentacles have erupted out to catch more of us. It
moves after us aggressively, reaching out, flicking people into
My god, it's working so fast now. 20 people...40, scooped up,
consumed. I've got to get out of here. Wait, Marucia is
confronting it...I've got to get this...she's commanding her
daughter to behave...oh no!!! That was gruesome,
poor Marucia--here's Niels, he's got a weapon! Shoot the fucker,
He did shoot, it just oozed pus out and healed itself. Aw, no,
Niels too! That's it, I'm outta here. That thing--God, there
are tentacles everywhere now, filling up the entire building,
there's no way out! And it's grown so BIG that the
building is being ruptured open. Can anything stop this horror?
Can I...no! not me not m****

VIRUS FROM JUPITER
It is hypothesied that the alien creature that manifested itself
in Brazil at Midnight last night is in fact a form of "virus"
from Jupiter. In the 9 hours since it appeared it has consumed
or killed everyone in São Paulo and grown to a breadth of
9 kilometers. All efforts to stop it have failed: it absorbs
projectiles into its mushy body; it melts before fire, then
reforms unharmed; is immune to poisons; and any parts cut off
continue to live and begin operating independantly.
The Solar Rangers are ready with a nuclear missile, but it is
feared that if it is blown into pieces, each piece will become a
creature like the one we already can't deal with. However, it is
growing at such a rate that it will consume or smother all life
on Earth within 6 weeks.
Lt R. Sheckley of the Solar Rangers, who was among the
Jupiter Return team, has this to say: "We feared something like
this when we
knew how the child was conceived on Jupiter, and we had decided
to keep it in isolation on Callisto Base, but your god-damned
civilian "Popular Opinion" took the authority out of our hands
and you got your Jupiter baby down to Earth after all.
"Now we have to figure out what to do if it DOES kill all
life on Earth. Can it leave Earth? It hovers, it may have MEST
capabilities. Will it visit all of our colonies one by one? Is
it a bomb the Jupiterians have dropped on us, or is it an
accidental virus, like when the Spaniards wiped out the Aztec
with smallpox? Do we go to war with Jupiter? Can we win
a war against Jupiter?
"If you ask 'Do we have the resources to war against Jupiter?',
the answer is obvious: they have two-thirds of all the resources
there are in the Solar System, and we have about one millionth,
if we even have the Earth any more; they gave us MEST, so if they
attacked us they probably have something bigger and better. No,
I don't think we'll even bother attacking a Gas Giant."

EARTH IS DEAD
It has been confirmed that as of 2 hours ago The Jupiter Virii
have consumed the last bit of oxygen in the Earth's atmosphere
and that all surface and sea life have been extinguished.
The virii have since been leaving the Earth and seem to be moving
toward our colonies. Space City is now being evacuated.
Last man turn out the lights.
o what a HORRIBLE ENDING, Sob, Oh no, Weep,
Moan, Gnash, Wail..
