Combat Carnival | Chapter One Echoing through the night sky, the clash of steel and cheering of crowds intertwined in a heated dance that flowed almost rhythmically to the pounding of ceremonial drums, intense blowing of flutes, and the frenzied plucking of strings.

A bulky fellow with an equally sized top hat took the center of the circular stage and slowly twirled as to face the entirety of the surrounding customers. “Ladies and gentlemen! Knights and knaves! I bid you all the warmest of welcomes to our wondrous world that we've created here. The night grows late and our champions must soon retire- but like always, we'll end this the only way we know how...” The audience met his words with even more cheers, the ground seemingly giving way to the thunderous chanting.

Chapter 1 - Wounded
Who are you? What are you? Why are you here?
All perfectly valid and reasonable questions to ask me. However, none of them can be answered simply, not in a satisfying way, anyway. I could tell you that my name is Ajax Anchor, that I am a great white shark, and that I've been on a continuous, urgent journey for the last 11 years. That would answer each of your inquiries, no?
But of course, those answers only surface more questions; How did you get that name if you're merely some wild animal? Furthermore, how can you be a shark if you have a body like a man's? Why is your trek urgent, and how has it lasted so many years? For the answers to those questions, well...context is needed, and for that context, it's best to start at the beginning, where my family and I all stumbled into a tornado known as 'Life'.
My family lived in a small cavern formed by a few large rocks that leaned against and on top of one another, near an open expanse that we called t

Yogurt, Domino, and Globe followed Hourglass over to a pawnshop located within an alleyway. It was still raining. Hourglass carried a green and white umbrella, which Globe stayed under. Yogurt and Domino decided to bear through the drizzle.
“Who do you own money to?” asked Domino.
“There are a couple of loan sharks that were not very happy with the amount of loans I couldn’t pay back.”
“Why not?” asked Yogurt.
“And what did you use the money for?” asked Globe.
Hourglass giggled and blushed. “I don’t have any more money. The toys I bought were not very cheap.”
“What kind of toys?” asked Globe.
“Adult-only toys.” Hourglass sneered devilishly. “I’ve put them all to good use…multiple times!”
Domino groaned. “You’re so disgusting.”
“Oh, come on!” Hourglass giggled. “You should know more than anyone. I me

He was born. With a yellow marking on his head that started from the bottom left side of his face and to the top of his head, between his ears, he was born. And because of the marking on his head that resembled a Crescent Moon, he was named Crescent.
They were feared of. Only the wild one was feared of, actually.
Crescent and the tame one was only hated on. They were called abominations. They began trying to hunt down the three of them. It was effectively driving fear into the three.
The wild one retreated. The tame one stayed. Crescent was protected by the one that stayed. He, the wild one, ran away in fear. At least, in Crescent’s point of view. The wild one was too much of a coward to protect him. He can’t believe that the tame one was the one who stayed.
She, the tame one, was killed. She was finally killed by the ones hunting them. She was killed merely for being ‘an abomination’. And it was all because of him, Crescent.

Antithesis: Ch 2: Old Rivals Bryan Sojourn dipped his paint brush into an ink filled glass vase. With his right fingers he inspected the saturation of the brush. Satisfied he breathed slowly as he began to inscribe the ink upon his final experimental blade. With deliberate measure in his strokes Bryan slowly filled the blade with the runic wording for lightning ameno infusion. Kneeling down Bryan took great care to accurately inscribe the wording from the cross guard to the pointed edge of the blade. With this done, he put away his brush and took a small break to make sure he had the proper measure of the blade. The act of balancing the energy within the blade had proven a dreadful task with his previous experiments. A slight miscalculation could render this blade near worthless.Antithesis: Ch 2: Old Rivals1 hour ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

The place wasn't too crowded. It never was. This bar wasn't known to the general public. Only those such as herself, those few who did the world's dirty work... hunters of different kinds if you will, knew this place.
A few people seated at tables talked in low voices, and there were a couple of guys shooting pool. The blonde walked past them to the bar, not noticing the hulking figure of the muscular man seated at the end. He watched her however, out of the corner of his eye while absentmindedly turning the glass with his drink on the bartop.
It was the hair, like a long golden waterfall that tumbled to her ass, that had caught his attention. He could only see one side of her face from his vanta

“Yeah, right,” you snort. Shard's eyes darken and his grin falls into a scowl. You are faintly amused at how quickly he has become hostile.
“Are you calling me a liar, weakling?” he hisses. He curls his lip back like a savage dog. “I could kill you in a second. Don't test me.”
A deep rumble emanates from your throat in response to his challenge. “You wanna try it?” you growl, curling your hands into fists. Kane chuckles deeply at your side, interrupting his prodigies' disagreement.
“Now, now, Shard,” he says. “What have I told you about such exaggeration? We both know that you only killed two people – one of which was already weakened by age.” Shard bows his head hesitantly.

James was given permission to join the evacuation, but he refused, and said he'd leave at the last minute. So did Fraser, who had grown way too attached to the Whitehorse RCMP, and insisted in not being evacuated. At the same time, the Prime Minister was heading back on the 'National Steamer' back to a militarized Ottawa, where blackouts were being enforced, tracking systems were being erected, and shelters being established. In other words, the 'SOP Scare' had begun to take hold in Ottawa, and the government were taking a

Having to wear a fancy dress and parade about the city was, in fact, a tender mercy.
Yassima had shown her what the prisons were like in this world of Yuinra and it was far more brutal. Although they did not physically do anything to you- asides from chain you up- they played mental games with your head. There were many agonized cries of “I won’t do it again!” or “Please let me go!” After their brainwashing session, all of them had a blank-stare, complete with glazed over eyes.
Levan didn’t see a single prisoner that was excluded from this treatment.
Yassima further explained that only the Davaar castle prison performed this type of torture method. In the other prisons, they were more physical in their methods- like wrapping you up in this red cocoon that caused boils to erupt from your skin and they would let you drop into a tub of salty lemon juice.
Needless to say, Levan gained a new perspective on the dress situation. Wh
