A Spoonful of YarrowBird song rang over the treetops as light danced through the leafless branches of the forest. Fall was a beautiful time of year, despite not knowing what it looked like, a blind she-wolf walked along familiar terrain. The area was right outside of Chandor territory, and was familiar for Jaci, despite being blind of course, she traveled here many times. Her herb grew around this area, but things were starting to die off the closer winter came, Jaci was very protective of what was left of her stash.A Spoonful of Yarrow3 days ago in Short Stories More Like This
Her dead eyes, blank like a cloudy day, stared motionless into the distance. Many shivered when looking into the Shaman's eyes; as though she could see right through you.
The pale she-wolf sniffed loudly, catching the scent of what she was sure was basil, a remedy for inflammations. As she neared the area of her basil stash, Jaci suddenly realized that the sun was falling near the mountains, she could tell by the temperature drop in the air and the lack of warmth on her back.

Halloween in SeattleJoan Reese awoke one morning, getting ready for work as per the norm. She stuck her gun and nightstick in their holsters and headed to the patrol car, opening the door to see Stephanie covered in white makeup and a red and black tank top with matching shorts, black eyeliner and dyed red and black hair with ruby red lips. “It’s Halloween, isn’t it?” sighed Joan with disgust.Halloween in Seattle3 days ago in Short Stories More Like This
“Come on, Joan, the chief says it’s okay to dress up.” Smiled Stephanie.
“You’re that villainess from Batman, it just feels silly!” said Joan.
“She’s funny.” Said Stephanie. “And her name’s Harley Quinn, puddin’.” She handed Joan a large light blue T-shirt with a bottle of brown hair dye. “Come on, you can dress up, too!” she smiled. Joan looked at the T-shirt.
“Camp Rolling Hills?” she asked.
“You’d be my favorite slasher movie villain.”
A Little Bit of Trust Cpt. 39Days passed like that, quiet and full of healing for all parties involved. Adrian worked mostly from the house, which meant that despite spending a lot of time on his computer he was always around if either of the viri needed anything. He tended to stick around the living room for just that reason, though he had a desk of his own in the bedroom. Colfax was around quite a lot as well, though less often because of his studies and the necessity of actually going into the lab once in a while. Still, he did most of his homework at the house, and it was a rare evening where he wasn’t present. Sawyer finished The Three Musketeers, and true to form it made him want to be a fencer. He even convinced Adrian to look up some tutorials on YouTube for him, and Charlie was heard berating him more than once for swishing the sewing needle around places that he shouldn’t. Charlie perhaps showed the greatest improvement out of all of them in the two weeks that followed, in part becauseA Little Bit of Trust Cpt. 391 day ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Ribbons Part 2.
Young Tim was always a pokemon lover and eager to catch or inspect any pokemon he found, so when he saw the Sylveon tail he could barely believe his eyes. He hoped that he could catch it or perhaps take a picture of it so he tried to follow it through the bushes. He ran for a while, chasing after the Sylveon as quickly as he could until he lost it from his sights. “Damn it! I was really hoping I might fully see that!” He grumbled, sitting on a dead tree stump. That’s when he realised he was lost. In a forest alone with barely any memory of how to get back. “Aw nuts! How am I going to get home?” He whined, kicking at a small rock.
He decided after a while he should at least find some kind of path or perhaps a river because most of the time rivers lead to civilizations, so he started walking normally for some time. It wasn’t unil an hour later that he came across a clearing in the forest where there appeared to be an old ho
[TTL] Arulus Halloween AUArthur hated Halloween.[TTL] Arulus Halloween AU2 days ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
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

1. Must have at least a brooch and a senshi collar!! (A tiara is not required but it is encouraged.) Other than that, there is not a set fuku. Every dream/nightmare is different (even the re-occurring ones).
2. Must be based off of an image (either actual or artist created) of outer space. (Example: My Sailor Pillar Rabbit is based off of a picture of the Pillars of Creation I saw in a magazine.) Same images can be used, but different senshi/knight/critter designs are a MUST!
3. They can be female or male.
4. They can be aliens, fantasy creature hybrids, partial (not complete) furries, etc. they just need to have some sort of human characteristic to them.
5. They should either have a beautiful dream or a terrifying/powerful nightmare that they want to follow through with either overcoming it or making it come true.
** Just because they may be classed as a nightmare senshi does not mean they HAVE to be evil. Some nightmares are just darker h

I awoke screaming. It was still dark, and in my fear and distress I fell out of my tree. My wings are sorely bruised, and my arms and face are all scratched up. Desperate, I lurched to my feet and began staggering about. A strong pulling sensation guided me out of the forest, and into a small valley. As soon as I stepped into it, I was violently ill. Dark magic reeked from the very essence of the land.
Owen's words from yesterday prodded me further into that vile place. Coward. That's what he called me. Personally though, I believe knowing when to retreat is a good thing. All my instincts screamed at me to leave, turn back, run away. But I couldn't. I... I dreamed I was Owen. I dreamed that he/we were being sacrificed to bring forth a being of such terrifying vileness, and our/his blood was the key.
I... am... a...monster.... I will never be allowed to live past my birthday. So much death. So much blood. And to think I'd thought Owen was scary. HA! That...That THING. So terri

I awoke my heart racing and my body covered in sweat. The voice echoing around me forced me back into reality. I never slept so heavily.
"Sandra wake up, Its far to late in the day for you to be simply lounging around in bed." I blinked hearing the door rattle. I had placed a chair under the handle just in case Vazel had tried to waltz in on me like he normally did. It looked though like my aunt had a similair plan that morning.
"I am awake" I half yelled half groaned. My legs wobbled as I stood. I felt like I had run for miles. I still wore my garments from the night before. She snatched the door open the moment I removed the chair, grabbing onto my arm she drug me down the hall. My bare feet padded down the stone hal
Heart of Steel, part 3 Anelle studied the man next to her. He was a year or two her elder, with pale skin and ebony hair cut short and spiky and slicked back. His eyes were light gray, and stared blankly ahead, very pointedly not looking at her. His features were elegant, but held a kind of arrogant stiffness. A bright red scarf stood out against the black of his jacket. A jointed metal brace was fitted around his right leg, and a pair of crutches leaned on the table next to him. She knew she'd seen him before.Heart of Steel, part 33 days ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

I walked down the road with my hands in my pockets. I let out a low sigh as I heard my stomach growl again. Slowly I looked around to see if there was anyone near. Not a single trace of life around me. Actually not even me. I kept walking in hope to find someone. Above me I heard crows fly away and a weak breeze made the leaves shiver. The night was chilly and I felt the dew form on my bare skin. Without caring I just kept walking. Another breeze carried a sweet smell towards me. I smelled it and smiled. Fresh blood. Following the scent I started running. Surprisingly quiet I ran over the fallen leaves and stopped by a small bridge. A low gasp left my lips as I saw the person lying on the ground. A young girl with her chest ripped open and her heart was gone. I took a step closer being careful if the thing that did this was still here. The girl´s arm has been ripped away and thrown several meters away. I frowned. A big puddle of blood sur

The Costume Shop: Daiyousei(Touhou)(30/30)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: Daiyousei(Touhou)(30/30)20 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
