Granted, the technology itself was really cool stuff--prototype cloning but in a different way. The idea was pretty simple, since matter couldn’t be created or destroyed, the ray simply converted something from one form to another. You put something in the replicator, fired up the beam, hit a target, and poof! Perfect copy.
There were only two problems. The first was that she had to keep her hair in a ponytail behind her head, to ‘avoid contamination’. It was standard lab procedure, but Jennifer had hoped Horizon Industries had moved beyond those archaic techniques. But that was a minor quibble.
Jennifer’s real problem was that since the company was unwilling to test on anything organic, she had t

Its odd...walking into a school with others who usually protect you and shelter you surrounding you in an array of reds, yellows, blue and greens. Proxy..its a term I am all to familiar with and honestly, I sometimes feel closer to them than to Father. They usually do three things in my case: don't acknowledge you, respect you when you are around or act normal around me. I always wondered how Father trains them in the lethal skills of honed combat techniques I see when they are out at the field or why they are usually so agile in tasks of reflexes, tasks of endurance or anything of that nature. Though..for usually being insulted upon by the outside members of our little society of ghost, ghouls, puppets, demons and other otherworldly creatures, it was almost comforting to get close to some of these Proxies. Though..not everyone tends to like me. Not one bit.
You see, I..well..Ally and myself (whom everyone calls me Night

The next day was longer than the last. Gym class was soccer this week, and I was put in as left defense. Preston was right defense, while Nooch was goalie. But I wasn't paying any attention. My mind was on Jerome and the Woodlands. He was probably out hunting right now. I kept catching myself staring in the direction of the river, even though I couldn't see it from the school.
My side of the river seemed so boring compared to the Woodlands now... No magic or cool creatures. Just people. Mean, judgmental people. Of course, not all of us are bad. My mom's nice, and so are Preston and Nooch. Mr. Finley seems cool.
"Mitch, Mitch!" I blinked and looked at the coach, Mr. Raphel, in alarm as he shouted my name. He stared past me and I turned to see that a kid on the other team had passed right by me while I was thinking and had made a goal.
Mr. Raphel groaned. "Mitch, you gotta start paying attention, or your grade's gonna start

You're just his dog, your words echo in his mind.
No I'm not, Ren snaps in response to the thought, becoming rather irritated.
Ren knew you enjoyed getting reactions such as that from here. He had a feeling that you were somewhere in his mind, laughing at the distress you caused him. Sometimes Ren wondered if you fee off of his misery, like some sort of parasite.
Aoba sighs and glances down at Ren, "Okay, I give up, Ren. What's bothering you?"
The small dog shifts uncomfortably in his bag, "Nothing," he lies.
Aoba studies him and Ren looks down at his paws guiltily, unable to meet Aoba's eyes.
"Alright, " Aoba sighs again, "If you don't want to tell me, I won't pry."
Ren remains silent and rests his head on his paws. He hated lying to Aoba.

He hated it Inside… The Liam lad had given them all rooms. Which… he supposed was kind. But he’d rather find a place outside. But everything out there in the stony courtyard was wet and cold.

“Agent Barton and Agent (Last) report to Fury.” Maria Hill said over the head pieces, provided by SHEILD.
Clint and I have done a few missions together, so this must mean that we are going to be assigned a new mission. We arrived outside the office door at the same time; Clint held the door open for me to enter before him. Fury sat there with two different files on his desk; he was looking out the window.
“The files are for your mission has your name on them and it will be done together. It will take at least 3 months for you to even get the background you will need to complete this. You leave tomorrow morning. Any questions?” Fury didn’t even turn around to look at us.
“Sir this says that we are married. And I’m a house wife! No! Nope! Not doing it!” I stand up to walk out.
“Either this mission or I make you babysit Stark. Take your pick Agent.”

The town of Weathering has recently witnessed some strange events, beginning with the death of Melissa Carter, a local student of Big Bridge High School, that devastated students and teachers alike. Her body was found in the woods east of town, with multiple bruises and cuts on her arms and legs. Her throat had been slashed and her blood drained, making concerned parents wonder, is Weathering still a safe place to call home?
Not only that, but cats and dogs seem to be disappearing from households across town. Their corpses all been found around a week after their disappearance in the same woods in which the police discovered Miss Caster’s body.

The Costume Shop' Krystal (24/30)You have just arrived to a brand new costume shop. It was heavily advertised as being "able to get you into character," their commercials showing animated people turning into whatever costume they put on, essentially becoming that form. They retained memory and all, and it was a big push for quality costumes. Business was generally very good for a while. The advertising team wanted to use SFX to have real people become the costumes, as a test showed that people would enjoy actual people and would sell costumes better. With business on the decline, they had no choice but to go for that advice. However, all SFX teams who were able to do it were much to expensive, leaving the store in a jam. Luckily, they found a someone willing to do it for free, granted they used the costumes he had hand made. He would also need his own space in the store for the filming, which the store agreed too. The man set up his area in the back of the store, along with a closet for the costumes to be used. You weThe Costume Shop' Krystal (24/30)11 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This

Most of the time after each lunch Emerald would usually make a request for tomorrows lunch, but when he asked her the day before she said not to bring anything, and she was going to grab some lunch herself. So today he waited by the lake the water glistened as he held onto his empty bag.
The waterfall roared as Nick waited for Emerald listening to the chirping of birds. It wasn’t long before the sound was replaced with the leather flapping of wings. He looked eagerly at the horizon, his heart sunk when he saw the familiar black dragon landing on the beach.
“Oh, hey Charlotte,” He said simply having met her once or twice already when Emerald took him to her cave. It was clear she didn’t like the fact of her friend liking a human, more importantly him. “Hey meat sac,” She said a hint of disgust in her voice.

She was only seven when she became free. The doctors said there was nothing they could do, and the world could do nothing but watch as life slowly pulsed out of her on her hospital bed, in a dreary beige room with only a small window of life.
Light from the window dappled on her cold body, but wore a blissful smile on her face.
Free. She was finally free.

Well, after the whole erection incident, I suggested to Jeff that we should get ice cream.
'' Why ? ''
I knowingly sighed.
Time for dramatic Nzinga...........

" Riiiiiiiiiight, Nizzy. "
" Oh my Gosh ! "
Jeff raised an eyebrow in complete confusion.
" Mind filling me in here ? " Jeff suspiciously said. I looked at him with my mouth gaping open and eyes wide. Jeff just stared at me like I just discovered how to tie my shoes.
" You called me ' Nizzy '! For like the first time ever ! " I excitedly said. I really don't know why I was so happy something so trivial, probably a random euphoric mindgasm ( LOL).

Glenmore, The Glenwood
He had escorted her back to her own thicket in the morning, with a healer on her other side for extra support. She had fallen asleep as soon as they had helped her lie down in her soft nest, lined with mosses. Even if she had done her best to thank him for following her home it had been hard to keep herself awake. Now two days after she felt a little better but her legs still felt weak so she had remained in her little nest. She couldn't, and the fact annoyed her a little, recall if she had behaved herself as she should have done. Perhaps she had been too bold, perhaps had she leaned on him a little too much? There hadn't been a word from him but the herbalist had returned two times to check on her. Fen smiled softly. Her shoulder and side still carried his scent. Vaguely, if she closed her eyes, she remembered mumbled words. Had it been his words? 'Magic' the voice had said. With th

Huisha cleared his throat and looked around nervously. The fifth of the advisors had not yet made an appearance but everyone else seemed to be getting antsy.
“I’ll begin, shall I?” he asked the group at large.
No one protested, so he went straight into his report.
“So far the school is going well in Lady Mor’s capable hooves. There seems to be plenty of interest, and sufficient instructors to make sure everyone is accommodated in their chosen area of study. It’s a bit too soon to say whether the classes themselves are a success or not, but I will update you on that in the next meeting.”
He looked around again, wondering if the healer was going to stroll in late for dramatic effect and interrupt him. Normally Huisha reserved judgement on other fawnlings until he got to know them better, but he didn’t really want to get to know Lord Fenton that well.
“I was hoping for more participation from the princesses… I think
