Mikey closed his eyes as he slipped the noise canceling headphones over his ears. Everything was going great. He’d let himself into the studio and had immediately gone to see if anyone had donated any money while he'd been away. Last night he'd thought a head, placing a small jar under the mail slow so any coins that were dropped in would not roll away and miss being collected. his faint smile had become a wide grin when he'd found that the jar was half full; and after pouring out the money and counting it his smile had become even wider when he'd found that he's raised almost $200 since taking over the station 3 days ago.
Taking a deep breath Mikey watched for the equipment in the booth to finish warming up before starting; pressing the green button to start the broadcast. "What's up Lairsy College? Once again it is I, Michelangelo; your lord and master of the airways. Just wanted to give a brief shout out to everyone who dropped off money to the st
Capitol City || Chapter 3Iyla sat on the familiar surface of the prince's bed and wondered how many times she'd gazed up towards that same cieling and watched him charm new things there. She'd added her own touches sometimes as well. The fairy turned over, careful of her wings and laid on her front, burying her face into the surface of the pillow. Her head still rung.Capitol City || Chapter 322 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Gabriel shut the door and approached his father. "Can't find it." He shrugged casually. "So... what was it you needed to talk to me about?"
Jude lowered a hand to the ground. "Come with me."
Gabriel climbed aboard with agility, remaining standing even as Jude stood. He could tell from the look on his face this was not going to be a short chat.
"Gabe, have I told you what my first job was?"
"Yeah. You were Like a low-level diplomat, right?"
Jude paced along the outer edge of the gardens. The fountains were off since it was nearing nightfall, and the chirping of Chicadas filled the silence between them.

In a cave in the northern regions of Sthreldrum, a drakenum, in her human form, slumped to her knees before the blood-drenched nest of clothes where her hatchlings once rested. They were her babies. Her darlings that she brought into the world through a father that had been slain by a dragon-slayer weeks back. She had not expected for a creature to get past her obstacles in the front of the cave to come in and slaughter them. No bodies were there and by the horrid scent, she knew it was a basilisk that had devoured her hatchlings.
Her long, snow-white hair draped in front of her chest and covered most of her reddened eyes. Tears slid down her brown-skinned cheeks from her blue eyes with no pupils within. She couldn’t even make a sound at the moment as her gaze remained on the blood. She could smell her babies. It made her gut clench and eventually her breathing became rapid. Consumed in sorrow, she remained like a statue on the flo
The Costume Shop: Twilight Sparkle(28/30)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.

The Healer and the Destroyer - Ch1Was there anywhere more peaceful and relaxing than this? Sprawled over the soft, lush grass, the gentle, warm breeze weaving it's way through the thick protective trees of the forest.. The faint echoes of the creatures who dwelled here creating a veritable soundtrack of nature, itself as the lake rippled pleasantly in the background. The 'white noise' the very world itself could create, away from the wars and the stresses.

Kenzie and Emily [Part 1]*The scene starts on the boardwalk in Unionville. The year is 2021, although technology really hasn't taken any monumental leaps forward. The boardwalk follows most of the length of the town, about 5 miles. On the 4th mile of the boardwalk is a theatre, built about 25 years ago in regular '90s style. In the front of the building are a few large windows with two large glass doors on it's left side. The large middle section has long thin windows every five feet or so, and then there is a casual door into some kind of back rooms behind the stage. One day while relaxing alone on the beach, the theatre's abandoning is what originally peaks McKenzie's interest. That is until she sees a thin, blue haired girl walk up off the boardwalk and go inside the seemingly unlocked doors.*Kenzie and Emily [Part 1]23 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Kankri Vantas X Troll-Reader: extended 2A fury like no other raged within you as you slammed your hands into the ground and pulled yourself up. Your anger intensified further as you caught sight of your two assailant's. Something about them felt familiar, though your rage refused to let you acknowledge this fact. The first one who happened to be human had shoulder length blond hair, he was wearing a pair of black shades over dark blood red eyes, and was dressed in what appeared to be red pajamas with the symbol of a gear on the front. He glared at you from beneath his shades and gripped the hilt of his sword tighter. The second was a troll with equally red eyes and a look of both disappointment and anger on his face. He wore a black t-shirt with a symbol on the front that reminded you of something though you didn't know what. It wasn't until he stepped to the side that you saw that there was a third being with them.Kankri Vantas X Troll-Reader: extended 217 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Drew took in a deep breath, filling his lungs with as much air as he could and then held it for a moment. He started to count in his head. It was an old trick of his; whenever he felt tense he would just count slowly in his head to see how long he could hold his breath for. It used to give him some quantum of relief and take the edge off of his worry. Not now though. He got to the count of thirty when his lungs started to burn, so he let it out slowly.
But still the feeling of anxiety remained.
He opened his eyes and let the details around him sink in. His bedroom was dark and still, wrapped up snugly in quiet shadow. The bedroom door was close and the curtains were drawn tight, but he could still hear the soft patting of the rain on his window; the monotonous ticking of his bed side clock hung softly in his ears and th
Sword and Darkness: Chapter 3We have arrived in front of a big building standing at the end of the town. It looked like someone has built a big house, and other owners built another building on a side of the first building and so on. Like a massive building made out of smaller buildings. And I liked it. It was very chaotic, yet held some sort of order. The master was telling me some things as we walked around the house.Sword and Darkness: Chapter 317 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This

Unfortunately, most of them wasted skills they had in pointless wars over fortune and sooner or later were killed." He was telling me as we walked through a hallway with many doors. Korren was probably not interested in this, walked into one of many doors and closed them behind him. We finally stopped in front of one room.

No words could describe how much the costume-dressing, the sugar-high kids, and the constant, unnecessary scaring pissed him off.
What was the purpose of this holiday? To answer this unanswerable question, Arthur had looked it up, and a fitting story came up that gave him a fitting answer: to make peace with the spirits of Halloween, lost souls and ghouls, bloody ghosts and demons.
Arthur had told many that's why he hated it, the fact that in his terms it meant he'd have to make peace with the crowds of kids running across his street, his sidewalk, knocking and yelling at his house even though he'd had his front porch light off for the past three days, and yet middle-schoolers still found it funny to throw candy wrappers and trash on his front yard. His father had asked him to even dress up once; the man had walked without some of his hair for quite a while.
It was even worse since he lived in the rich part of town. The part of town which kids would tel

Heaven is endless, it promises freedom and it´s the home of all kind of angels. They live there while watching over the humans, helping them, protecting them. Their white wings show their purity and brave intentions. They live in God´s light, laughing, feeling glad they´re alive.
But there is a place that is never reached by God´s light and warmth. Beyond the heavenly Towns and golden fields of Heaven there is a dark, dead land. There live angels, too. They bring suffer, hate and sorrow to the humans. Their wings are black so they can be identified as different from their peaceful conspecifics.

After the big announcement for Survivor Series, he knew without a shadow of a doubt that he wanted to be on Team Cena. Instead of waiting to be asked, Austin was taking it upon himself to find the CeNation leader himself. Even though he was sore from the night before, the banged up star limped around the backstage area until he literally bumped into Cena. “Just the man I was looking!” He proclaimed.

Gray sat up against the walls of Vivian’s stomach. He’d been in there for almost five hours now. It’s a good thing he was protected otherwise he’d be digested by now. He didn’t know just how irritated everyone was getting on the outside. Kai and Vivian sat on the ground waiting for Gray to do something. Candy sat on Kai’s shoulder, obviously far more impatient then the other two.
“How long is it going to take him to realize what’s going on?” Candy said angrily.
“I don’t know, his dumb mind probably won’t eve figure it out” Kai replied.
“Don’t call him dumb Kai. He’s not, He’s actually very smart. He’s just so… naïve. He lacks the ability to correctly judge things, and that’s what’s gotten him into trouble his whole life”.
Candy looked down at Vivian’s stomach. "He'll learn one day.
