Something moved in the forest, something humanoid.

The very thought of a survivor horribly sickened David, for the android sought the complete, utter extermination of the Engineers.

Nevertheless, David carefully tracked the survivor's footprints through the foliage, occasionally humming portions of his favorite tune-- Wagner's Das Rheingold.

Several earth hours later, David found himself on a mountain top, standing before a humble stone structure covered with moss. To his contempt however, the sounds of several Engineers emanated from within.

David quietly entered the household and found a small family tending to a toddler's wound, presumably caused by the bombardment of steatite ampules. Sickened with their presence, David quickly ran out before being noticed.

The toddler's wound was quite horrendous, the black pathogen had caused its stomach to swell with countless sores oozing puss. Yet this had no effect on David's emotional encoding software.

Outside, among the abundance of stones and bushes, David swiftly constructed a small ax. When the weapon was complete, the android hastily charged back into the household.

Before the Engineers could even scream, David violently butchered the family. In fact, the power he had exhibited was so great that the bloodied innards of Engineers were thrown up and pinned onto the ceiling! Decapitated heads were tossed, eyes gouged out of their sockets, teeth loosened from their place, and torsos were brutally torn into shreds.

But before David could eliminate the toddler, his ax snapped in two. So David abandoned the weapon and carried the baby out from the household and slowly walked to a nearby cliff, humming the glorious climax of Wagner's Das Rheingold

Upon reaching the very edge of the cliff, David threw the toddler down into the field below, still humming as its small mutilated body splattered at the bottom.

Ha Ha... that David is some Character hey...

Maybe he should be singing Humpty Dumpty as he did this Act...

But i think its interesting to ponder Engineer Survivors... i think Davids Experimented needed Hosts... and so i dont think he could use those Dead Engineers/Beings not how well preserved some of his drawings and the Plastinated Engineer

Its interesting to Ponder are there Infant Engineers?  Those beings on Paradise looked more Human, and had Females and if we then assume these Male/Females can procreate then indeed where are the Children....  Unless they are offered as Sacrifices... to Seed Worlds..

What a Horrific Plot that would be.... Imagine Babies being Grown inside like Tanks.... or given birth and stored in Tanks and these Tanks then are injected with the Sacrificial Goo and breaks down these Babies to form a Mutagen Stored in Urns to seed Engineer/Humanoid DNA instead of the Sacrificial Scene.

What a Horrific Agenda... truly a Dark Way for these beings that would Warrant Davids actions.

This kind of Sinister Plot is what i was thinking of touching upon....for my Prometheus 2 that i abandoned.. but surely also it is something i would explore if i was to work on a draft to cover the Engineers Agenda...

We have to wonder why we dont see Engineer Children? but then we dont know how fast they grow and age.

Going back to Engineer Survivors if i was to touch on how Engineers could connect to Davids experiments i would also consider the Fact that the Crashed Scorpion Ship may contain Engineers who could be injured/incapacitated but have not suffered the effects of Davids Bombardment.

Starkly brutal, but I have to admit, I can see David doing just that!!


You bring up some interesting ideas!! :)

Facehuggers! nice one! As much as this makes the reader uncomfortable it does highlight David's indiscriminate and uncompromising approach to achieving his goals.

Do it BigDave!! Go for it!! This will be a must read for everyone!

@facehugger That was a nicely imagined and well-executed (har har) piece of writing. I could picture a scene like this unfolding in a David/Shaw prequel story. Perhaps you should write it!

On the fan fiction front, I enjoy how creative a lot of these topics and posters are. I'm actually wanting to work on an original, illustrated, post-Aliens story that has nothing to do with xenomorphs but features new mysteries/monsters and widens the scope of the Alien-verse, something that I think the Prometheus sequels were initially wanting to do, except this would be a new Lovecraftian-Alien story with new trappings and bigger stakes. And of course it wouldn't be obligated to lead up to anything in the canon as we know it. Already doing research.

DG go for it, I encourage you!! Your idea sounds intriguing, I look forward to reading it :) 


FacehuggerMember143 XPJun-25-2017 8:58 AM

Great story! And yes there were baby engineers


TrilobiteMember8212 XPJun-25-2017 9:17 AM

Facehuggers! Excellent!- Short, potent and to the point.

I would suggest leaving it as is and not expanding it further. Or it could work as a scene to a larger story- but please don't change it!

I like the quality of the story but damn that is some nasty ****.


“Upon reaching the very edge of the cliff, David threw the toddler down into the field below, still humming as its small mutilated body splattered at the bottom.”

David is on some Ted Bundy ****. That really gave me a disgusting mental image, well done if that was your purpose of it.

Just finally got around to reading this, OMG, I love it. Very disturbing stuff. If I'd known it was going to be so disturbing I would have waited to read it until right before bed instead of in the middle of the day (because I usually like to try to catch nightmares). Have you written other fan fics?


Very well written and expertly described, sickening visuals. Nicely done!

(I still haven't watched American Psycho yet, but it's on my to-do list).

Keep them coming!
