Before ‘’The Hammer To Fall’
His breathing tensed. He could feel his anger take control of his body and being as shivers ran down his bones and goosebumps made its appearance. It was all he could do not to flatten this tiny, idiotic, small-minded stag right here and now!
He was just like the rest of them! But flinching in his steps, he spoke.
‘’No. You are right, I did not think! But not because of myself. Not because of my status and my reputation!’’
He had to pause to take a breath.
OW: (The Beginning of) LastrekaStren Ignatius Renalds had just arrived at the academy and already, he was in a fight. He had only come to this academy because of his sister Emily and when he saw her, he approached her, only to find her in the middle of an argument. The person she was talking to was a masked person in a grey robe, carrying a staff.OW: (The Beginning of) Lastreka1 hour ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Is there a problem?", Stren asked, but was ignored.
"... that was just too fast, Lace!", Emily just exclaimed.
"You told me to use the king", the weaver answered.
"But I didn't mean like this!"
"Why should... the king not go... where the lady is?", the monotone voice asked.
Stren stared at his sister and at the person named Lace and back to his sister. He had no idea what they were talking about, but he was sure he didn't like what he heard.
"It was humiliating", Emily answered.
Stren decided that he had heard enough and drew his sword. Lace didn't show a reaction.
"Is he harming you?", he asked his sister. In exactly that moment Sitka arrived.
"What is going on here?", h
Once Upon A TimeJe suis comme Alice au Pays des Merveilles. Je suis tombée dans un trou très sombre et très profond un soir en m'endormant. Le lendemain, je me suis réveillée au fond de ce trou. Quand le Lapin Blanc est venu me chercher dans ma prison grisée, il avait une patte en bois et un œil de verre. Son pelage pourtant si éclatant de blancheur avait été terni par les cendres qui recouvrent le sol de ce Pays Imaginaire. Il me montre la sortie et repart comme il est arrivé, discrètement, rapidement. Je suis comme les Enfants Perdus, larguée sur l'île de Peter Pan. J'aperçois Clochette et ses amies, mais leurs ailes sont à jamais brisées. J'apprends de la bouche des Sept Nains que Blanche Neige et Aurore ont sombré dans la folie. Elles sont enfermées dans leurs cages en or depuis bien trop longtemps maintenant.

Have you ever asked yourself
if an angel falls to earth?
I never cared …
Until I met this boy …
In my dreams …
I have visited this place many times … this world, where the light is at home … Your world … And I will visit this place again until I find you …
“I came to this wonderful place again … That is strange …”
Puzzled, Eliya looked around and breathed the fresh, pure air into her lungs.
The plain in front of her lasted as far as the eye could see and melted in the distance into the powder-blue mountains.
Under her naked feet she could feel the soft green grass that stroked the soles of her feet with her every movement.
Eliya sat down and lay back on the grass with her eyes closed.
The gentle fragrance of flowers got into her nose and made her smile.
“Even though this is just a dream, everything seems so real. I wish I could stay forever at this place. This is

Ignoring the beckoning voice behind, the woman continued along the rock precipice, the fortress looming before her. A strong wind was blowing in from the north, and that only meant more snow, which was already swirling in thick blooms around her. But the heat of her rage melted the flakes as they came within range, evaporating as pure, unadulterated magic burned around her.
“I said stop!” Leaping from Lyeos' saddle and stumbling up the steps toward his captain, Cartien struggled to gain her attention.
Spinning on the ball of one foot, she ground the flecks of stone beneath her boot as she turned to face him. Patch gone, her mismatched eyes both stared at him widely, a look of chaos fervent within them. Around her, her hair seemed to float in an ethereal aura within her sphere of influence.
Cartien knew she wasn't stable – how could she be? – but he couldn't let

Taker's MuseThe storm brews outside with a fierce tenacity. Thunder rattling the rafters, lightening streaking the panes of glass, and the wind stirring up a tempest roar. He sits upon his throne, watching upon the screen as his foe rambles in misconstrued analogies. Chuckling to himself, his enemy slowly twists the lid of the golden urn. Pandora will be smiling upon him again, he muses, as the first pelts of rain patter across the eaves. The phone rings, disturbing his train of thought. “Yes.”, he bites into the receiver.Taker's Muse4 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
“The crypt is empty, he has her” his minion sputters reluctantly.
The storm erupts, matching the rage blowing through his veins. “FIND HER!” He slams the handset down with a clang. The torrent beyond the walls no longer soothes his spirit, but echoes his madness. Evil unleashed, he recalls the legend of the box. He’d accepted the challenge, what would be the point o
NQ Hellsing Chapter 5 Shoteka pulls out all her best clothes and lays them out on her bed to choose. Shoteka decides on a deep blue dress and a midnight blue cardigan. She looks into the vanity across from her bed, but once Shoteka got there, she became unsure with her general appearance.NQ Hellsing Chapter 55 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Then, there is a knock at the door. Shoteka turns around in her pedestal before the vanity with hairbrush in hand. "Yes? Come in." She calls and in response, the door handle turns and releases from its frame where a woman of Shoteka's height come in, her long, messy, graying curls in a loose ponytail. Her silver eyes are tired after her years as a mercenary medic, and then her education and training as a nurse several years later. Marina is only in her fifties, but she appears much older than that.
"Hey!" Shoteka smiles and Marina smiles back.
"Hello, dear. I haven’t seen you at dinner. I wanted to check on you.” She greets warmly and her daughter looks back and shakes her head no. "Oh, I’m sorry I
ItW- Little SongbirdShe was small - barely filled the corner of the raised throne on which she sat. Cradled between her pudgy arms, resting in her lap was a honey-gold lute, with a sound unlike anything Enrique had ever heard.ItW- Little Songbird5 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Not, as you might think, because he'd never heard a lute played before.
He'd never heard something so sweet and warm, especially not from a plucked instrument. A harp didn't even compare.
Perhaps it had been his own humming that had drawn her out. He was fairly sure the crumbling hall had been empty during his first pass. But here, with moonlight forming a spotlight between them, she sat. She seemed lonely somehow.
It almost moved him to tears. He wanted to comfort her, keep her safe, tell her everything would be okay...
Despite apprehension, he found himself wandering closer. As he picked his way over the rubble, he lost his footing. Just barely, he caught himself against a pillar - one of the few left upright in this place. Before he knew it, two knives arced
[TGB] | Homebound.The totems were odd. Approaching them, Firo was hesitant, staring at this strange new addition to his home. He knew the Spirits had returned, and that tattoos had been bestowed upon those who met them at the Breathing Caldera-- Mar and Neytiri had gone for that purpose alone. But what else had happened to the tribes since his injury, Firo had no clue.[TGB] | Homebound.6 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
This is his home, though. Where he belongs. So he steps up to the entrance of camp, and between the totems, slipping through the entrance. Walking through camp, he feels naked as the only cat without a tattoo, and goes straight for Alcina’s den. “Silver-Earth?”
She was . . . worried. She knew that things were to change soon, so perhaps there was no reason to go rushing into appointing the heads of their ranks, but to keep her cats waiting might arouse suspicion, or even ill will. Yet . . . those three were still missing. And she knew she shouldn't but she needed them to be here. Firo . . . she didn't k

I had no idea where I was going or what I should do- other than I needed to get away and hide. As I ran I glanced back to see if the creature was behind me, waiting to gobble me up in one fell swoop. I should’ve been looking where I was going because when I looked back, there was a steep slope in front of me. I couldn’t stop my momentum and fell down the slope, rolling in the grass that hid sticks and stones that cut into me until my body came to a rest at the bottom in some thorny bushes. It hurt, I tried to get away from it when I heard something sinister hiss at me. I couldn’t see where it was and suddenly my leg was bitten! I looked up just in time to see a snake-like creature slither off. Its pale scale gleamed in the sunlight as it disappeared into other bushes.
I tried to move but my body stopped responding. In fact, there were tremors that came up

Sommerslain had been there before.
The rain pelted his black, hooded cape as he trudged down an ancient street. Through the fog he could see a small town, undoubtedly the one he needed to pass through. He was still too far away to see any people, but the scent of many fireplaces was testament to the fact that the town was inhabited. North, he had been told. How far north was a question that he had no answer to, but Sommerslain knew that he would be able to tell once he got close enough to his destination.
The clear clicks and solemn clacks of Sommerslain’s boots announced his arrival. At first the townspeople stuck their heads out of their windows to get a glance of the newcomer, oblivious to the rain. Then, as if someone had sounded a siren, doors were slammed, windows were shut, and curtains were closed. Sommerslain guessed that the townspeople were used to his type. He won

Cassandra turned her gaze in his direction, smiling expectantly at his formal tone. “Cassandra. . . we’ve known each other for a long time now.”Marcus's Proposal (Spoilers)6 hours ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
“Yes.” Cassandra’s voice was half-excited, half dazed. It was just a little different from how she usually spoke, but that little difference seemed to make Marcus bolder.
“We’ve known each other for a long time, and we’ve gotten very close.”
“And, if you would let me, I would like to become a lot closer to you, for the rest of my life. Our lives.”
Cassandra hesitated this time. “ . . . Yes.”
Marcus smiled. Gwendolyn could tell he was almost giddy, but he put aside his nerves and got to his

The news traveled so fast across the city. Even JEN was heard of the news. She was in the computer room of the U.S Bank tower crunching some numbers when Council One came to her and told her the news.
"Roller skating?" JEN asked, "What's that?"
"Oh it's like Ice Skating only you skate on wheels." Council One said.
"Do you want to try it?"
"Me? I don't know. I'm kind of afraid of skating because I might trip and break my crown."
"Aw come on try it. Try a little something new for a change."
"Oh okay for my friend at least."
Moments later JEN found herself in a giant roller skating rink in
