Shadows, To be continuedIt has been a time since this has come to the surface. A growl, a snarl. The sounds that fill my mind. What is these things I hear? Are they real or are they the work of the mind. I guess that is a question of mine. How do I do I find the answer to this question of mine? How would one go about finding the source of such sounds? Mind boggling it is. As I quest forth for my answer through the corridors of my mind, many things do have surfaced. One of which a shadow of a long time pass, though that is little issue for one such as I. Though with this shadow many things do come to me. A many things a do find myself ashamed of.

After sneaking into my father’s study one day looking for something that I could read to take my mind of the upcoming tournament I came across a document labeled Classified. I picked it up and thought what the hell might as well give it a look at.

Chemistry, as usual, was interesting. The teacher liked to mix in some of the other disciplines – this time he mixed in biology to teach us how dragons produce their fire. It turns out that dragons can produce liquid flammable substance, similar to gasoline, but with some stabilizing substance that ensures it won't go too early and which evaporates shortly after fire fluid is released. Fire is then ignited by the little tongs in the back of dragon's throat. Dragon has full control whether or not ignite this fluid, which due to other chemicals is purple in color. Of course, this being chemistry, most of the lesson was dedicated to chemical makeup of that substance and its chemical relatives such as gasoline and other benzenes.
When the lesson ended, John regretted it was so soon – he always liked those lessons, no one made chemistry seem so fun to him like this teacher. He even seriously started to consider career in chemistry.

‘The Imperial Palace had first been founded at the foot of Unkastor sixteen years after the settlement of men on the large island of Imril. Then, of course, it was not known as The Imperial Palace, but was simply a haven for the settlers to seek refuge should they come under attack. The wars that had driven the Qaboron people from their homeland left long memories in the lines of our ancestral families.’ Sigismund paused in his oration and Avirkas took the chance to stick his hand up. The elderly tutor ignored it.
‘The people were right to fear. When they took boats north and discovered Sy, the people we now call the Ancient Dukaban mercilessly exterminated those first nameless explorers. The remnant of Qaboron were once again faced with open war. They were forced to unite. Those who did not ended up burned out of this land by the hand of the ancient tyrants. Those forefathers of the Empire we s

"Yeah?" Ichigo said in a barely civil tone.
Whoever was on the other end of the line either didn't notice Ichigo's tone or chose to ignore it as they asked rather cheerfully, "Hello, do I have the pleasure of speaking to Mr. Kurosaki?"
Rubbing his eyes, Ichigo said in a tired tone, "Dr. Kurosaki doesn't live here. You must have misdialed."
There was a surprised gasp at the other end even though Ichigo himself wasn't at all surprised. There was a list a mile long for why Ichigo couldn't stand his dad most of the time. While there far more important reasons higher up on the list, right now he mentally berated his dad for the millionth time for insisting on keeping the
The Weight of a SoulHis entrance into the world was marked by fate. A new star appeared in the night sky, rusty and dim, flickering with all its might as if by a faint breath of wind it might be snuffed out.

Frail and tiny, the newborn’s life seemed as tenuous as the ruddy star. He should be exposed, said most, but the mother clutched her babe to her breast. It was all she had left of her husband. The winds full of ash and preying kagouti had taken him three months before.
And so she named him Sul- Sehtri Sul, after his ancestors before him, all descended from the mighty shield-companion of Nerevar. None could see it now in the bird-like bones of the wide-eyed, whimpering creature. None but his mother.
In the boy’s seventh year, all connections to her husband’s tribe lost with his ashes in the wind, the mother took up her child and left. The Ashkhan of the glorious Erabenimsun, a tribe in t

I was panting heavily. My legs were pushing me as fast as possible, as I tried to run toward the darkness. Most dragons would have fled, but I ran directly toward it. My wings were tucked in close to my body, my crystal point necklace bouncing up and down as I ran toward a field of broken-down cars and loose wires from fences everywhere. I then looked up at the distance, and saw him. My father. He was running. Running for his life. And also shouting out for help. I gasped and ran faster, panting harder. I could only see my father running. And a red light behind him. No…. “No!” I shouted, spreading my wings out and flapping my wings. I flew toward them, reaching out toward him with outstretched talons. “Dad!! Take my claws!” I called out to him, reaching out to him. He reached his metal hand out toward me, but as I tried to grab him, the Machine snatched him up in its own claws. “No no no!” I screamed. I flew toward it

He did so without a word, travelling quickly to ensure being in the presence of the two monsters was as brief an experience as possible. Klaudia watched as Vukan rounded the corner and entered his room. She looked back to Crystal. "You just had to go and scare him didn't you? We're going to be living with him, the least you could do is make him feel welcome" she scolded Crystal. The Lioness simply rolled her eyes and began to head towards Vukan's room.

¿El dominio del mundo? No estaría mal…
Recuerdo muy bien la primera vez que se me cruzó ese pensamiento en la mente. Me encontraba terminando el último de los 5 algoritmos que me habían pedido en la universidad. Era algo de trámite en realidad, más a la mayoría de mis compañeros les agobiaba el hecho de tener que realizar dichos algoritmos y realizar el programa que probara que funcionaba como debía ser. Malditos ilusos, creyendo que yo, Fabrizio Moretti, compartía su dolor por la ‘excesiva cantidad de trabajo que nos habían dejado’.
Solo fingí comprenderlos. Una sonrisa falsa que fungía como cómplice de aquellos crédulos estudiantes, una que otra queja de dientes para afuera y tendría a 5 chicos a mí alrededor creyendo que era su amigo, su compadre y camarada... como si necesitara amigos en el mundo normal y aburrido.

Roy had since discarded her contacts, since Benjamin and Flynn never seemed to mind the red eyes. She was constantly aware of them, though. Whenever she caught herself staring out a window, she would turn and rush to the small room that she used. It was painted red, as if someone knew what she liked. She smiled a little at it when she first saw it, then realized how big of a step down it was from her mansion. She simply stated, “It’ll have to do” and got to work making it perfect.
Now, she repeated her question, and Benjamin smiled ruefully. “This is kinda difficult to explain, but here we go.
“Basically, there are four elements, right? Water, Earth, Air, and Fire. There are five groups of people on Vovnigh; Water Harnessers, Earth Harnessers, Air Harnessers, Fire Harnessers, and humans. Each Harnesser is born with the ability to control the element of their heritage. For example, when

“Ooh, a toughie,” Flynn was sitting upside-down on the plush chair opposite the couch, and she looked at Roy with a grin. “Well, I’m Flynn - Flynn Terryal Kotzaff if you want to get specific, and-“
“You have three names?” Roy interrupted.
“Yeah, yeah, it’s weird. So what! What’s the point of having only one name?” Flynn asked, her eyes wide.
“What’s the point of having three?” Roy quipped, then sighed. “Continue, though.”

“What in the world is going on?!” She demanded, looking around for some way out.
“You don’t know? Stupid girl,” the obvious leader shook his head, smiling. Roy felt his presence was demeaning and dark, as if he was a hungry dog ready to bite at the first thing coming its way.
“I am not stupid!” Roy cried, massaging her hands. The weird feeling in her fingertips, the tingling, felt so strange, but, at the same time, so natural. She didn’t understand it, nor did she know if she ever would.
“What is wrong with your hands?” The man asked, venom tinting his voice. “Realizing that the cursed fire pumps through your veins?”
“Fire? Cursed fire? Heh, you’re the one that stupid!” Roy forced herself to laugh, but the whole situation was beginning

I didn't get a lot of sleep last night. Oddly enough, I wasn't tired at all this morning. Now that I think about it, I don't even know if I need sleep. I just always assumed that, since I could, I needed to. Anyway, I wiped myself down with a towel (I don't shower or bathe, for hopefully obvious reasons), put on my costume, and went out of the guest room I was staying in. I wandered into the kitchen to see Brynmor balancing water cups, toast, and those single-serving boxes of cereal with the covers you tear open on top of some sort of tray. He set meals for all three of us (minus the drink for mine) at the table, though Piezo wasn't there yet. I bid him good morning, and he responded in kind.
"To help us get used to our rations more quickly, I fixed the most tasteless breakfast I could. Also, I didn't want to cook today. Goh hoh hoh hoh!", he explained.
I went and sat in the seat without water, responding to him with "Y'know, it's
