"Are we there yet?" I whined to my parents from the back seat of the car. We were on the road heading to Orlando to visit my grandparents. Departing from Indianapolis, the drive wasn't short by any means, and frequent stops were made due in part to me.
"Not yet, Emma. Asking over and over isn't going to help get us there any faster, either." my mom told me from the passenger seat. I was only 9, but I knew when mom wasn't happy. "Sorry." I apologized, putting my head down in shame. "Don't worry about it sweetie. Just relax and we'll be there before you know it." she looked back and smiled at me. Resting my head back, I drifted off into a doze until I was awakened at a fast food place just off the exit of the highway.
"Emma, wake up. We're getting dinner. Looks like we'll have to stay at a hotel a few exits down. I'm sorry, we'll surely make it by tomorrow." she assured me. I was disappointed, but not to the point where I'd let it ruin my experience. We did just cross the state line into

Taichi vs Winter
(Belonging to Camy-Orca and MicroDogWinter, respectively)
WARNING: It contains violence and gore. Read at your own risk.
As the ball exploded, Taichi quickly shot a plasma blast at Winter, catching him off guard and hitting him right in the chest. Winter was thrown against a tree very strongly, almost breaking its log. "Hah. You're exactly like I thought. Weak.." Taichi grinned, charging another blast. Winter stood up and held his shoulder, which got seriously hurt at the impact; Taichi shot his plasma blast at him, but Winter evoked an ice shield and managed to hold the attack. Taichi growled in frustration and threw himself against Winter, but the latter dodged him and jumped onto his back, holding on his neck. Taichi roared and tried to get him off, shaking his body violently. Winter held on for a few seconds, then he was thrown off Taichi's back; the night fury jumped on him and pinned him down.

Night had fallen on the late spring Alaskan hill country, and the world was finally beginning to thaw. The trees had begun budding and shoots of long grass pierced through the slush, threatening to trip man and Tokota alike. The Tribal village to the south were all tucked in for bed and the few stray shepherds enjoyed the quiet of the night, though all was not serene for everyone in the land.
Feet thrashed against the slush of the earth in a panic stricken run. The melting snow was unforgiving, and slowed each motion painfully. Breath huffed from their lungs to form rolling clouds of steam that signaled his location.
Behind them, dull sounds of mashing ice could be heard coming closer from behind. The intruder was coming closer and closer- fear rose in the man’s chest as he ran. His feet scrabbled against the slush piled against a hill slope. His progress was nearly useless, though he knew if he were to clear the hill and make it to the fo
The Ruins of Birkam WoodThe crumbling castle looked like an island in a sea of trees, standing atop the highest point in Birkam Wood. The forest had long been working at reclaiming the hill, roots and rain had felled the outer wall, leaving only the ruined keep still standing. Only one of the its triangular towers still stood, casting a long shadow over the two scouts sent to investigate its vaults.The Ruins of Birkam Wood23 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
“Easy enough to find, when they said we’d be looking for a ruined castle in the forest I thought we’d be out here for days,” Piper said, three black-tipped fox tails flicking and betraying her excitement. The most senior of the scouts in the 101 Knights pulled her hat down to shield her green eyes from the glare of the sun and looked sideways at her companion.
“I wish they were all this simple,” Skyver said, holding his furred hand up to shield his own eyes. Closer to the wild than his senior, the junior scout had red and white fur covering his entire bod

The tale of the farmboy noble part 3With one last bite, Tam threw the apple core into a nearby harvest bin. Although the Captain's towns were small, he had the largest portions of land of all the Knight Captains.The tale of the farmboy noble part 310 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The only downside to this land was that Captain had spent years turning it into farm country. So he traded produce for other supplies.
But that meant a lot of fresh food. And Tam enjoyed fresh food. And in her epic quest to get to the keep, she made necessary stops at almost vendors that offered food or shiny objects. This subquest involved a local bakery which she completed said quest by leaving with a slice of freshly baked apple pie.
Taking a small bite, she revelled in delight.
Oh... that hit the spot.
Continuing her epic quest towards the keep, she saw a figure with a large great axe strapped to his back looming over the crowd. Apparently the figure drew attention of everyone who saw it, but made the people hesitant.
She squinted. Then her eyes flew open.

Trent, one of the old and scarred higher supervisors of the Grand Vault Library had quite the dilemma on his hands. One of his underlings had undergone a physical transformation and in their panic made a run for it. It wasn't unusual in the library's absurdly long history, but it wasn't all that common for the person to actually get clear of the walls. Loreane's clothes had been found here and there about the place, torn to shreds. At first he thought that maybe something had crawled out of the lower depths and gotten her, but a quick investigation showed that wasn't the case.
Right now he and a few other workers of the library were reviewing a crystal ball, replaying the events

The wolf’s name was Orion, and he was a contained riot at times. He was bouncy, cheerful, and always hungry, and of course I gave him the chance once, and now he won’t ever stop hounding me on sight.
“Well hello there Orion… Pleasure seeing you here…” I said trying to keep my own smile present.
“Oh Shikiru! I’ve missed you so much! It seems like I can’t find you anywhere these days!” Orion said, attempting to slurp my face as I stepped back to avoid it.
“Yes, well… I’ve been busy doing tasks for my sensei Onichiro” I said knowing it was half-lie. He had not kept me terribly busy with tasks lately, but Orion certainly didn’t need another excuse to paw at me.

Those Red Eyes - Day 146Arcan watched little Christopher and Jack toddle around the back garden. The pair were a lot alike, in many ways. They both shared that oddly square jaw, the mess of hair that stuck out in all directions on their head, even the way they waddled after each other in a comedic game of tag was near identical. Of course, there were distinct difference. Chris, being the elder by a few years, was obviously bigger. His hair was noticeably shorter and was a blinding shade of blonde. Jack however was smaller and pudgier, with longer jet black hair.Those Red Eyes - Day 14619 hours ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

The guard had a short lance in his hands; he lowered it and rushed at Wercur, who stood closer to him. Urcut threw herself forward, intercepting his attack and bodily knocking the guard away. Growling, she slashed her claws across the guard’s face, and blood splattered from the blow. The guard was an experienced soldier, though, for he paid his wound no mind. He punched Urcut in the throat, his elbow landing a heavy strike at her ribs. The Izaran female staggered back, and the guard used that moment to grab the lance he dropped in the fight. The guard stabbed with the lance, and Urcut barely managed to catch it by the haft. She was a strong Azara, but the guard w

Zaphod should be able to go home tomorrow. Today has been long to say the least. It had rained all day, much to Zaphod's delight and my displeasure. Although his wound is mostly healed, it didn't stop me from worrying about him getting mud under the linen and it getting infected. It didn't, but Zaphod tracked mud wherever he went, including inside the tents. At least it stayed on the ground. The last thing we need is for something made of wood to start growing mold due to water damage. I can't stand the smell of mildew...though that might create some interesting specimens.

Normally, Moshi was fairly tired, but being so close to getting the third shard, he made his way home as fast as he could.

A Little More Trust Cpt. 37The calmer human still could hardly believe how casually Sawyer and Colfax interacted with each other. Charlie had always known that Sawyer had no sense of personal space, but it was something else at this scale. Colfax didn’t seem to mind enough to really do anything about it though. That, perhaps, was what confused Charlie the most. Even Sawyer grabbing the viri suddenly and pulling him across the table hadn’t seemed to faze Colfax. He just snapped back retorts like usual. Charlie didn’t know whether to stay concerned or give way to amusement at the continual farce the two of them made.A Little More Trust Cpt. 373 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

She had to be there. The Master Emerald had given him the vision of the girl because it was keeping her alive. All this time, he'd been playing with the island's power source, never considering that life support needed power, too.
He crashed through the door into the Emerald chamber. No robots yet--only tranquil green light and polished, mirror-smooth floor. The Master Emerald sat atop the altar, and for a moment Knuckles stared at it. What would Eggman do with it?
Then he shook himself. They'd come back. Sticks said they would. Right now he had to find the girl.
He circled the altar, tapping it with his claws. The schematics showed it opened up. But where were the doors? In the back?
Doubt gnawed at him as he stared at the altar's stone back. What if he opened it and found only old machinery? What if his guess

Until the Teo and researchers could get those reinforcements out to the treehouse, they were on their own.

"But why not?! This is a marvellous example."
"Let me rephrase it. I'm not signing any paper that includes the word Hogwarts with my name."
This discussion had been going on and on ever since they had returned from their last Chronomancy class. It had been a class like any other - listening to the professor; doodling swords in his notebook; observing the confusion rise inside Lace again... And trying to not choke on the amusement because Valyris, apparently, had been focused on Audrey drawing tiny clocks on his papers rather than the subject. It was beyond Sitka, when this energetic five year old had been allowed in the Chronomancy tower, no one really minded though, and so didn't he.

But she was so curious about this one particular planet, that she ran-zoomed-shot past planets and other stars and clouds... until she crashed on a patch of grass. Fairies and dwarfs and other magical creatures gathered around this fallen star. They were mesmerized by her large sparkling eyes, and the tiny stars adorning her long hair. They asked if she wanted to join them at a talent show, and Stargirl clapped and hands and agreed.

He looked at me, slightly spooked by my outburst and concerned. I looked to his sides in search of Natch, which he must have noticed. Sighing, he relaxed and prodded at the burning timbers with a stick. "Natch went off to find more food. He's been gone for about an hour now, but he's been hunting all morning.

I can't even decipher, I want to cry, but my eyes are so dry. Oh, I remember it had been a long time I had drank water, no wonder why I felt my lips crumble.
