But it was a little bit boring because of that. The tokotas minded less than the people.
Glady and Mal were leading the line through the tall pine forests. A breeze swayed the tips of the evergreens but didn’t touch a hair on rider nor tokota’s head. The grey and piebald would yawn on occasion. When he began to let his eyes drop too much Mal corrected him with a pop on his shoulder. The tokota would pick up the pace for a bit before falling back into the same pattern.
Sky was tailing close behind him. Since she had no rider she had been given the majority of the supplies to carry. She was as diligent as ever. Even with her boring task she kept alert. Cricket was riding behind her and caught on to her pattern after hours of observation. Every ten strides

Alex couldn’t believe how Carolyne had changed. No longer was she the same girl who Alex had given herself to. At some point, she became a bloodied monster with a soul as black as hell.
Using the rail as a brace, Alex pulled herself up. Her head rang, and her breaths came in wheezy pants. Her vision blurred from time-to-time, though she wasn’t sure the cause of that. Moving made her entire body ache in. She coughed, hard, and saw blood in her hands.
She glared at Carolyne, who returned with a hungry gaze that made her look like a rabid lioness. She stalked around Alex, waving her blade and preparing to strike.
“He was listening,” Alex said. She held to the railing for a moment longer, tried to stand on her own, and regretted it. Immediately, she fell back onto her support.
Carolyne shrugged. “I don’t care. I wanted to kill him, so I did.”

The sounds of voices were once again rising in the den site of Vale; and just in time for the Summer Celebration as well. A set of paws speckled with white and cream padded through the den-site as a single amber eye regarded the gathered wolves as they socialized. His ochre-colored pelt twitched nervously, but the grey-faced wolf held his head high and tail flagged in a show of his rank. There was no use in him being the frightened, reclusive wolf he once was when he'd first joined Vale. Now, as Astir Faust's trusted Beta, Notah found himself needing to project the strength and leadership that Faust had expected of him as Beta. The aging wolf knew how to complement and train Huntsman,

Crimson was sleeping lazily when suddenly a spark of voice fell into his dreams. He programmed himself to wake. He was in his half-human-half-cat form, though he was much more powerful as a cat. “They’re coming!” cried Kōsetsu, scared. Everyone was already awake. They were all in cat form too. Angel started floating. “They’re heading south. We need to flee; they have Dāku-en’s army with them.” Angel descended quickly back to the grass.” “Don’t leave your tracks, but let’s go!” exclaimed Kōsetsu, activating her snowfall power to walk on the snow, which would later melt on the hot day, Crimson summoned blood from already fallen sources, walking on blood leaves no footprints.

Just a Little Crush l Objective l AcotasThe mares were clustered together as they grazed away from their little oasis that was shrouded in the center of the trees. The heat had broken from the stifling oven it had been when Acotas’ had discovered his herd members to more of annoyance in the time he had been with them. They still hid for a good part of the day, sleeping in the shade while Acka kept watch over them. They would venture out and graze in times when they wouldn’t get heat stroke, saving the sweet grass that grew by the pool for times where it was absolutely needed it. They never complained about the yellowed grass but Acotas could see the disgust growing in the mare’s eyes them ore they ate it. He assured them that in time the summer storms would come and the land would flourish before winter set in and they would need to move south to find food. Stella had been skeptical of his words but Wendy and Clare worked quick to convince the roan mare that it was a good idea.Just a Little Crush l Objective l Acotas2 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This

I held the sash out to Laotjë. “Here.”
“What… what do you mean by this?” She frowned and didn’t take it.
“I–” Ah, I didn’t know the right words! “I’m leaving. Leaving the guild.”
It was early enough that no one else was quite up yet. It was just me and Laotjë in the entrance hall to their building.
“Why?” She folded her arms, and I had never seen her look so formidable as in that moment.
“Because – it isn’t my place.” I rubbed my eyes with one hand. Still very tired. I needed to get sleep at some point. “Big guilds performing like this – it’s not really what I do.”

He couldn't wish for death, that's against the rules. If he wished his grandfather wasn't born, then he couldn't exist to find the genie, and a time travel paradox would be created. No, he couldn't fix the past, but he also couldn't pretend it never happened. He approached the genie, wiping tears away from his eyes.
"I wish the people of North Korea had the strength and knowledge to rebel against the government."
The genie waved his hand, and the countryside began to rumble with the calls of revolution. Kim peaked outside the cave, as the countryside was rampant with fires and makeshift weaponry.

She raised her shield as the dragon blew out a stream of fire. It connected squarely with the shield (which turned red-hot causing her to be very, very happy for two things, one being that she grabbed the shield, the other being that it had a leather handle that didn’t heat up as the rest of the shield did, being iron) and deflected it nicely over her head, though the fur on her ears got a bit singed. Her fur bristled and she stood up, yelling at the dragon. “What the hell?! Back the hell out of here before I cut you down!” She yelled, not knowing where the last bit came from and surmising another two hits would melt her shield.
The dragon’s voice boomed in the small square (or it appeared that way with a large dragon in it) “I am Goliathon, Destroyer of cities, towns, and kingdoms, and famous knight slayer. If you believe you can cut me down, have at me. I have been dying for a good fight, and I

Kasra AU Setting The glow of Sanguina's moon could barely be seen as a red stain in the sullen clouds over the town of Pericula. The skies began to shed their first tears of rain on the straw roofs of its residences. A light breeze flickered the smoke flowing from the chimneys. The pattering raindrops drowned out the stealthy footsteps of a young velta in a black cloak. She crept along the walls of a house like a shadow, and squeezed the edge of her blade underneath the crack in a window so that her limber form could slip inside like a cold wind along the floor. She let the warmth of the unknown room seep into her skin before raising her head above the countertops to find herself in a kitchen. Bowls of fruit perhaps a few days old yet ripe for her consumption were on an island in the center of the chamber.Kasra AU Setting1 day ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Her whole body was numb with anger and shock. Blood dripped from her right hand, but she couldn’t even feel the throbbing anymore. The air was cold and her bare feet were frozen, but she didn’t care. She had to keep going… She could never go back to that house…
Suddenly a pair of bright headlights lit up the street behind her and shined right in her eyes. Amy shielded her eyes and prepared herself for a fight. If they had come for her… Then they’d get a fight before they got her…

Fear me. There once was a Dragon, great in size and strength, his being was a living legend amongst all mortals before him.
