The path to Phyllir (Prologue)Day 187, Year 1234, 5th Century of The Crass'haa'r.The path to Phyllir (Prologue)1 day ago in Introductions & Chapters
We are in the vicinity of the strange city of Lartha. I've never heard of this place, strangely enough given my previous mapping experience. The wind smells of metal. It's a mining town apparently. Argltath brought us here or so he likes to think. I reckon it's Chaos' tracking that lead us out of those dreadful plains the mighty "warlock" managed to get us into. Quite honestly I'll take anything at this point. The annoying Genasi thinks he's the leader of this weird pack. In fact he thinks he's royalty simply because he can glide. I let him think so. I have no time to bother with the likes of people like him. He's proven himself in battle a couple of times but his vanity is next to unbearable. However, it's more convenient this way. None of the others have the will to lead. Even if our abilities exceed his.
The disputes between Tejevina and Eygar seem to have calmed down a bit, although I still catch one g
Prologue - A Hoenn Necessity - Part 1Prologue - A Hoenn Necessity - Part 13 days ago in Introductions & Chapters
Before the time of Hoenn, their were many beautiful Regions. Hoenn was just a few of the smaller ones that were discovered. In that time, Hoenn would be known as Island of Islands as it was surrounded by the crisp seas and meadows of the wild. Many Pokemon were found their too. Most Pokemon unfamiliar to most trainers. As every region, Hoenn was to start a Pokemon League, to which many would partake and see who is the best. They were usually given the starters of Kanto, since as anyone knows is right next to Hoenn.
Charmander; the fiery and hothead of the three. Many trainers chose this Pokemon for it's outstanding performance when it evolves. Charizard's maximum power and flying techniques made trainer yearn for it.
Bulbasuar; the Pokemon in which people can't agree on if it's a plant of an animal. Many believe it's appearance as an animal give it that attention, but many believe it's plant-like attributes are what it really is. When evolved to it's final form, Venusuar literally soar
Heroes- Stormy and SpottyHeroes- Stormy and Spotty3 days ago in Short Stories
On a cliff-side ledge, over looking the place where Alina and Brit's Cp 'groups' lived, two felines sat with the wind blowing their hair/fur forward ever so slightly and ever so gently. With a nod they both shift their form, changing to a half-feline form.
One a Snow Leopard, only reversed on the color and Gold-Silver eyes, The other a Clouded Leopard with kind, gentle and soft Silver-Blue eyes. Their names-Stormy and Spotty.
Stormy looks at Spotty, "Feel like singing today? It's a night night after all." Spotty gave a soft smiles and nodded, "Sure." was her reply. So Stormy pulled out her Phone and turned on their favorite song- Heroes [(we could be) ft. Tove Lo], by Alesso-and began.
"We could hide away in daylight
We go undercover, wait out the sun
Got a secret side in plain sight
Where the streets are empty, that’s where we run.
Everyday people do everyday things but I
Can't be one of them
I know you hear me now, we are a different kind
We can do anything"
It Was Just A GameThe following “prologue” started as just a quickly typed narrative to go along with one of my latest drawings. But after a number of requests for some sort of ending, I came up with a little something.It Was Just A Game1 day ago in Short Stories
Like my art, I have trouble keeping things simple and following the prologue below, is the end of the story.
It was just a game. Played by she and her sister countless times over many human lifetimes. It was just a game, to pass the time, a challenge by each in turn. A human was chosen by one, and the other would craft a mask that would allow her to take the human form most appealing to the chosen. Then she would have a “chance” meeting with him to start. He of course would want to get to know her better but she would resist at first and string him along. She would tease him, build his hopes and desires, then dash them, only to repeat the process.
Conversation with an AngelThe woman gazed down at her ruined homeworld from inside the ship that orbited the planet Terragon. She was the only human left, rescued by a benevolent Watcher.Conversation with an Angel3 days ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes
"Why me?" she asked the Watcher, who was standing behind her, his eyes trained as intently on her as hers were on her destroyed planet.
"You were the only one who believed in me," he said.
"Does it end with me?"
"I will create more of you."
"By using your DNA."
"And what of Gareth and Roland?" she asked.
"They will reincarnate."
"Why did you create us in the first place?"
"Why do you have children?" he countered.
The woman didn't answer.
"The Federation I am allied with has given me permission to reseed you on a new planet," the Watcher said.
"Yes, and you will be the first seed. But there is one stipulation."
She turned around to face him.
He continued: "We are not allowed to interfere."
"There is one last thing," the Watcher said. "Your body is not adapted to this new planet's atmosphere."
Denise and the #ChloroChallengeFriday afternoon – the time that all high school students and teachers looked forward to – was finally here. Denise was no exception; the pretty, busty, young history teacher had finished all of her grading and was ready to get away from the school for the weekend.Denise and the #ChloroChallenge2 days ago in Short Stories
Before she left, she took out her mirror and checked her look, running a hand through her short brown hair, admiring the thick blonde highlights throughout. Her outfit – a navy blue pinstriped skirt suit with a white button-down blouse, navy stockings, and high heels, was fashionable and still professional. She thought to herself that she could take up her friends’ offer of going to a club tonight, without having to do much more than remove her jacket.
She picked up her purse, leaving the rest of her school stuff there; she was looking forward to a weekend without any schoolwork. Her heels tapped on the tiled floors of the hallway as she strode towards the back exit; she figure
The Magicians Hat"Now for this trick, I need a volunteer from the audience. Ah, yes, you sir. Come on up." The magician said cheerily. Up came the man on to the stage, smiling and looking a little awkward.The Magicians Hat2 days ago in Short Stories
"What's your name sir?" The magician asked.
"Michael." he replied a little sheepishly.
"Michael, good. Give Michael a round of applause." He said addressing the audience again, and they did.
"Now, I just want you to stand here..." He said pointing down to a marked spot on the stage, "And face the audience for me Michael, now, good."
The magician rubbed his hands together and grinned. "Good, now if I take my hat here and begin to shake it a little, something magic happens." He said as he took the black top hat from a nearby table and held it aloft for the audience. He began to shake it gently. Slowly the hat began to get a little bigger. It was hard to see when it actually grew when he shook it, but it did. He stopped for a moment to look at Michael and then the audience again, smiling. "And the

Una de las características primordiales del Milegu, aparte de su continua autocontradicción (es-noexiste) y autocontención (Interior de lo único) —esto es, la pervivencia de realidades totalmente contradictorias en el mismo espacio y en el mismo tiempo, la capacidad para que cada objeto o conjunto de objetos esté dentro de sí mismo...— se trata del concepto del "siempre hay más" (Alpkatchen).
Este concepto no es un concepto "fundamental" en el sentido de que se deduce fácilmente de otros supuestos del Milegu, como el es-noexiste o el Interior de lo Único o de cualquier otro ladrillo fundamental del Milegu (

Oh god. What had he done?
He backed away from the broken window, clenching his fist over his bloodied palm.
“Oh, hell,” Elfar muttered, eyes wide as he flicked desperate glances to the sides. “What is that?”
The alarm split the night, shrill and harsh as the spirit-guard found its pathway broken.
“It–” Husk backed up beside Elfar.
“We have to leave.”
“Go.” Husk brushed his unhurt hand against Elfar’s shoulder.
“I can cover for you,” he argued.
“Please, don’t – don’t damage your name. Not for me.”
“It was an accident. They have to believe that.” They’d never believe that. Not of him, not of his family.
Elfar stared at him, then nodded.

Gabbi gave a whine, as she attempted to fan herself with a paw. She had managed to find a cart to get in on the way to Geoda with a bunch of other guild members from Andalusst. She was happy that she was able to finally go with everyone else now, but that didn’t stop the fact that it was extremely hot and humid out here in the desert. And frankly, that didn’t do well with Gabbi who not only had a lot of warm fur on her body, but also was an Ice-type.
Her nose dripping was rather small, seeing as she was too hot and sweaty to even try to stay cool. Before, she’d been breathing out some cold air from her Icy Wind attack, but she knew better than to waste it all. Plus, if she overdid it with the ice that could pose to be a problem for the Camerupt driver in front of her that had been so nice to carry her aboard alongside some other unfortunate guild Pokemon in the cart. Mostly everyone seemed to be heating up and me

“Esper… Esper, wake up.”
She mumbled something and then sat up, smacking her lips a little. She then moaned, rubbing the back of her neck.
“Aw man, now I’m going to have a crick in my neck all day…”
“Uh, is there a reason why your male next door neighbor is in your floor?”
“Huh?” Esper looked behind her at Jude as he snored loudly on the ground. “Oh…”
“What’s he doing here?”
“He was… well… uh… Well, he had been drunk last night and was on our lawn. I brought him in since he was laying on the grass like a weirdo.”
Travis looked at the boy and frowned. “Drunk?”

Real specific ones, though! Firstly, your supreme god of everything overlord requires mayhaps a 'mon or to waiting on tables for good ol' Scheat? So I'll need one or two waiters popping by.

This is Fateli writing right now! Mr. Alex just got dragged away by a couple of guards to meet his fate. He left his shiny diary behind, even though Sierra explicitly said-- Well, nevermind. Right now I see why I'm here. Mr. Alex's premature fate is about to be met head-on. Death-spirits like myself show up when stories are about to end before they are supposed end. Bad End you could say. All because that dummy left behind the one thing that could save him. Mr. Alex is a nice guy, I did my research on him before setting out, but he isn't the sharpest scythe.
Oh well, we have some time to kill beforehand. How 'bout some exposition? That's always fun. Except when it isn't, which is most of the time. Because you don't have someone cute like me doing it for you. Aren't you lucky? Because, seriously, his dumb gross drug analogies told you pretty much nothing. I'll treat you right!

Morning came quietly as Wizwuz traveled the barren landscape. No mixel tribes here. Wizwuz thought as he slid down a rocky slope. Clouds were beginning to form and the air soon felt damp with the coming rainstorm. No shelter or shade was to be found and Wizwuz was growing hungry. He had only eaten some ras-blues that he found on a bush and some water that he found in the woods. “I’m so hungry.” Wizwuz mumbled as he dragged himself up onto a rock. The wand that he held was the only thing keeping him going. “It’s just me and you wand”. Wizwuz spoke hugging the wand as it glowed. He started to feel drowsy and looked at his wand, “And it’s all I got”.
Magnifo and Mesmo raced through the woods until they reached a river. “WIZWUZ WHERE ARE YOU?!” Magnifo shouted out. Mesmo started shouting too. “Mixels do you mind? I’m t
The double-prankWell, this had been a bad idea. No, scratch that, this was the mother of all bad ideas. How Chris believed she could prank a giant and get away without a scratch was beyond her…. The fact that she had been so stupid as to drag her friend into it was really just icing on the cake. The young brunette glanced to the hybrid huddled next to her, who glared at her in response.The double-prank2 days ago in Short Stories
“Why do I let you drag me into these things?!” True hissed, brown eyes like Chris’ darting upwards as another giant footstep shook the ground around the two.
Chris bit her lip, her heart rate increasing ten-fold as a shadow came over their hiding spot under Jack’s bed. A triumphant chuckle in the background announced the girls’ doom, and Chris could only imagine the massive smirk their pursuer, Ethan would be wearing. No doubt the green-eyed blonde had a heinous form of payback in mind for them….

Ryan joined him 5 minutes later, carrying two plates of cheese and onion pasties.The Fairy Tale of Jacob McCoy: Lunch Time Spuds2 days ago in Introductions & Chapters
“Fresh from the vegetarian section, enjoy,” Ryan said as he put one of the plates in front of Jacob. Jacob was a vegetarian. “Appreciated,” he said grinning as he tucked into the pasty. They talked about the past two lessons; English and Biology. Ryan mentioned about how suspicious their Biology teacher Ms Houston and Chemistry teacher Mr Pedora were. Ms Houston didn’t pay so much attention to the lesson but spent most of the hour at the back with Mr Pedora. There were no exams to mark or books to mark, it was nearly the summer holidays. They heard words coming from them saying, “Right student”, “money” and “DNA”.

Ailanthus TreeFew trees in New York City grow with more vigor and tencaity than the Ailanthus Tree. Commonly called the “tree of heaven”, it has gained the nickname “tree of hell” for its foul odor and tendency to re-sprout after being cut down.Ailanthus Tree2 days ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes
Magicians of the city prize the Ailanthus for these very reasons. Wizards find that the sap of the Ailanthus, collected properly, will double the potency of many potions; sorcerers are able to draw on the tree to gain strength. Shamans cling to the Ailanthus when they wish to contact spirits that would be otherwise too powerful to withstand. The Ailanthus is a testament to the tenacity and resilience of living beings. Modern people living outside the city may expect an urban landscape to be completely concrete and asphalt. But there is the Ailanthus tree, its roots sunk deep into whatever purchase it can get, its presence known long before it is seen. Seriously. It smells like the Devil's wet dog farted.

TCoM, Kapitel 6 - Wechsel und EinmischungNach Tagelanger Schufterei, spürte ich langsam wie die Arbeit an meinen Kräften zerrte. Ich konnte mich nicht richtig konzentrieren. Ich wurde immer so schnell müde, beim Lesen wurde ich langsamer.TCoM, Kapitel 6 - Wechsel und Einmischung1 day ago in Short Stories
Ich konnte spüren, dass es Zeit für eine Pause war.
Ich gab mir selbst zwei Tage um wieder Energie aufzutanken und zu Kräften zu kommen.
Zwei Tage in denen ich schlief, Bücher zum Spaß las, mir Filme und Serien ansah, tanzte und einfach faul war. Und ich kein einziges Mal in mein Arbeitszimmer ging und meine Recherchen angriff.
Es hieß Zeit für mich allein. Und ich genoss sie unheimlich.

Daily Deity #132 PenatesSo, with Thanksgiving tomorrow I figured that today I should do something relating to family and food and such other things that surround the holiday. Then I saw the name Penates come up and I had flashbacks to translating the Aeneid.Daily Deity #132 Penates2 days ago in Short Stories
The Penates are pretty much the culmination of all the values that this holiday holds. They are the literal protectors of food stores in one's house. For a modern comparison, think about worshiping the gods that protect your refrigerator... that actually sounds pretty good, doesn't it?
Well, the food guarding part of these gods kind of comes under specific circumstances. The main criteria is that you actually have a place to call home, because then these guys can settle down and worry about just concerning themselves with your crackers.
If you don't have a home, or are more specifically between homes, then the Penates have a different responsibility. In this case, the Penates are protectors of the family.These gods had a rather nice relationship t

The three of them froze at the sound of the door knock and the voice on the other side. The speed of the event was alarming, considering the permutations of their conversation with the faceless man just then. Tracer leaned over to look through the peephole into the hallway, blinking and turning back towards the others with a profoundly confused look in his eyes. There was, in fact, a maid standing there in the uniform of the hotel. She was plain and normal looking, patiently waiting outside of the door with a set of towels in her hands.
“Well, who is it?” Dusk said, her eyebrow raised.
“It's actually one of the hotel staff. I don't get it,” Tracer said, watching as Samantha stormed up and wrenched the door open to look directly at the woman, eyes scanning the hall. Nothing. There was no sign, and they hadn't heard the doors open once. The impossibility of it was too strong, but regardless it
Hazelstar's Nine LivesHazeldusk's twitching tail-tip was the only indicator of her current anxieties. The medicine cat, Mosswhisker, seemed to catch onto it however, and smiled gently at her. "You'll make a good leader," she purred, laying her tail-tip gently on Hazeldusk's shoulder. "Your parents would be very proud of you. Now, come. It's time." The gray tabby lifted herself off of the pebbly shores around the Gathering Pool where they'd been waiting for the moon to reach its peak, taking quick strides towards the stepping-stones that led to the rock island in the middle of the pond. Hazeldusk followed, frowning just slightly. Mosswhisker's assurance helped, but it didn't completely erase her fears. She had only been deputy for a short time, after all.Hazelstar's Nine Lives1 hour ago in Introductions & Chapters
