Welcome to our world ! Blissed with magical essence, here live many kinds you would consider Legends or myths, and for now in peace.
A truly enchanting world, leaves are tinted in an incandescent orange peculiar to autumn, reflecting the rim light of the sun falling beyond the horizon.
And I'm here, looking at this marvelous scenery, sitting on a twirling cloud seeking for a shelter to spend the night and rest after my long travel.
Who am I ? Good question, my name is Phoena and although I seem to be Phoenix, I'm not exactly one...
There, between some crooked trees in the forest bellow, seems to be a ruined house. Desperate to rest and Artemis starting to show herself I decide to get down my cloud and go take a look.
It is amazingly dusty, probably abandonned for decennia, with the wall slowly falling appart and a crooked unstable looking bed, still let's try i- *crash*
P: Of course it'd fall apart, stupid !
From the point I've fallen, I can notice a small box. I

"no, you don't," I insist. my back is pressed to the bark of the tree behind me and the summer sun is caramel yellow on my skin. I'm thirteen, naive, soft-centered. at this point in my life, I have let no one break my heart or ruin the neat tight zippers of my long skirts.

You were on your way to meet Bellatrix and Narcissa so they could help you pick a dress for the upcoming ball. The only problem was a date. Being Lucius's sister automatically meant no boys were allowed near you besides the ones Lucius trusted most. Thankfully the boy you were crushing on, Bartemius Crouch Jr, was one of Lucius's friends so you got to see him regularly. Now all you had to do was convince Lucius to let you go to the ball with him after Barty had asked you that morning.

Jake stood before the forest of giant trees and gazed into its dark depths curiously. The air was permeated by the cries of several various song birds as they called melodiously to one another. A gentle breeze blew through the wooded grove and brought with it a sweet earthy scent that made Jake smile. This was truly a peaceful place.
That held a dark secret.
“The Wolf Forest ,” Jake said to no one in particular. He lifted his nose to the air and gave a small sniff, testing its scent. At first he only smelled that same familiar earthy smell, but after a moment it came to him. A scent that he had only smelled once in his entire lifetime, but one that he would never forget.
The scent of a werewolf.
As if on cue, a pair of glowing yellow eyes appeared from within the dark foliage directly ahead of him. A low growl of rage emitted from the same area and Jake immediately went on the defense. He crouched low, making himself less of target and then

“Hey Axel. Welcome back.”
Axel collapsed onto the other side of the sofa, the cushions groaning heavily under his weight. I flinched and bit the side of my cheek as he looked over at me, then Seth, and back to me.
“Wow. I can tell you guys missed me a lot.” He said sarcastically.
I felt Seth sigh behind me, and shift towards Axel.
“Hey, there's no reason to be all protective of her, Seth. I'm not going to do anything.”
“What, just how you didn't do anything to her last time?”
This time Axel flinched, only slightly, and quickly covered it up with a smirk, his sharp eyes landing on me. I gulped, stomach dropping. I knew I was going to have to talk to him eventually. I also knew that Seth would not be thrilled with the idea.
Seth was acting more…protective lately. I didn't know

"It's over, Preston. We just weren't meant to be. I hope you find someone, I really mean that." my ex-girlfriend Bree said as she hung up. It had been one of the worst days in recent memory; my girlfriend had called to tell me that she was breaking up with me for, of all people, my best friend Travis. Me and him had been friends ever since we met back in junior high, making the sting even more painful.
I took a deep breath as I plopped down onto my bed. I felt like burying my face in my pillow to dwell in my sorrow, but I had to go buy a new printer so I could print my term paper. The one I had, much like my relationship with Bree, was expensive and short-lasting. Normally I would search online, but I wasn't willing to wait for it to be delivered, thus leaving my options limited.
On my way to the mall, I noticed the nightclub that me and Bree used to frequent had a special tonight: couples get in for half-price. Figures, it seemed like it was me against the world today. I pulled in to

Ah, Pokemon. The very franchise of Nintendo that has been around for 20 years now, and it still holds up today. Of course, by 20 years, I mean by its Japanese release in '95. It wasn't known to the rest of the world until '98. And the premise is very simply yet enjoyable. And knowing how they expanded on the bestiary of the whole franchise is astonishing. It never ceases to amaze me. And it is on its sixth generation.
Generation VI introuced an interesting concept when it was still in production. And that was known as Mega Evolution. At first, us fans were a little skeptical about the idea at first. Pokemon that we all know transforming into more powerful temporary forms? That didn't seem like something we'd want. Instead

Light years close in on me.
Each vein restricts, the heart
beats backwards, hair snaking;
gasping, tears like glass beads
quivering in the void
around me and within,
feeling my eyes bulge and bleed,
turning to ruby gems
with sharp angles,
threading with my tears,
coiling around my neck and hands,
trying to fend them off.
Am I in a clinical waitingroom
in a hell afloat, which has already

a way for the King
to ruin mankind
with beauty and grace.
It has always
been this way,
and it continues
because man believes it:
woman is their punishment
and her power too strong,
so she must be contained and
owned by a stronger figure
who can control and tame
the tempest she is.
Pandora is given to a man
to be owned, a possession,
but she possesses
her own jar, it is hers,
and she opens it
because it is
the only thing she has
been allowed in this world,
the opportunity to open,
and she does.
All sorrows and sins
sweep the world, and the story
goes that it was because
her husband wasn’t watching,
because she was foolish
and believed it was jewelry
or silk inside, but
she opened the jar because
it was her own,
and in a world where nothing
belongs to woman,
where woman is man’s punishment
and property to acquire,
she will open the jar
because it is the only choice
she is given.

He would have given anything to not be here, but they had all insisted he would come along on their weekly shopping spree to something the Midgardian’s called a supermarket. Loki wasn’t used to getting his food himself, let alone make it. He didn’t like it one bit.
He hadn’t even begin to contemplate the weirdness of it all. He, the rightful ruler of Asgard, was walking along a cleaning aisle with the same group of people he had tried to kill just a few years ago.
‘What did Pepper say she needed again?’ Loki heard Natasha wonder out loud. He knew she was talking to Tony, but as usual the man with the iron tin can as a suit, was ignoring her and walked straight for the large refrigerator with fresh meat.

His gaze was focusing on something grasped on his fingers. Upon closer inspection, the wood piece has taken the shape of chess pawn after Berwald have sculptured it with precision. He blew some air to its round head, cleaning the surface from dust.
Settling down the pawn next to the rest of a chess set, he looked at the cuckoo clock hanging on the wall just above his desk. He stared it for a minute or two before a small door on it opened and let a
