In the not-distant past
Toq huffed and puffed along the long humid trek into the jungle. It was always humid and miserable to her thickly furred hide, but today it was even worse. Today she was laden down with just about every pack, bag, net, rope and pouch she owned. Despite their impressive number, she'd never stopped to consider the possible combined weight of them.
They were made of a myriad of leathers, woven hemp, dried vines and other durable fibers. Many had been bought or traded over the years but the oldest and most delicate of them were hand-sewn by Bobo, a chimpanzee owned by one of Toq's most highly regarded relatives. The poor beast had died some time ago of either old age or boredom (it was impossible to tell; primates were so difficult to read). She couldn't hold a conversation, but given a bone needle she could do amazing things with a length of yarn. Why had such dull base animals been blessed with the gift of dexterous fingers, while the Seccans (pinn
Beauty and the Beast pt 10Back at the Castle, Beast and Lionel showed Becky up to her room on the second floor. As she was being brought up to the second floor, she couldn’t help but notice the carved vines on the wooden poles that held up the railing. The railing also looked like a beautiful carved stream with wavy and curves on it as well. Most of the carpets on the floor had a different flower as the center part and along the edges were vines and leaves still attached. When they finally reached her room, fortunately there was a carpet that had a daisy on it.Beauty and the Beast pt 1012 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The beast didn’t know what to say to her along the way only that within his mind it was a battle with his good self and bad self. The negative voice would say, “YOU WEAKLING, you’ve given in to this stranger girl. She has seen too much and she needs to be locked up.” Yet the positive would say, “But she could be the one. If we treat her nice, then she could possibly fall in love with us. Stop being so mean, this is wha

"You..." was basically the general mood of the room. I didn't even know that could be a mood, but it definitely felt like it.
"You think we'll just trust you?" Rosie said.
"I'd hope so. If Patricius were standing here now, he'd trust me. He knows the truth. Magnus also knows the truth, because he fought this foe long before any of your ancestors were an ache in their father's crotch."
"Objection your honor," M said as he raised his hand, "I have no ancestors."
"Must've been a b**** of a headache then," Gwenladon commented.
"Pour cool water onto burned area," Alex said with a chuckle.
"Shh," I hissed. Alex gave me a face in reply.
"Do I have everyone's attention?" Darkrai asked. "Good. This will be a long story."

So it came to this. In a month and a half, this world would come to an end. It would be ended by the hand I could not control since time immemorial. I'd been trapped in my own mind, watching as Evil Incarnate did

“What,” she gasped. Her orb like eyes became large as memories flickered like an old film reeling in my head. “But. How?”
“I was called the miracle child.” I muttered quietly.
“That’s. But shouldn’t you have burned, or get suffocated by the smog that was left afterwards?” she asked me, almost frightened. “I don’t mean to say that you should be dead, but you know, you should be dead.”
“I didn’t make it out with all my body parts.” I admitted.
“What do you,” she started to say when suddenly she said,” Oh of course.”
“Yeah, fake body parts.” I said, feeling my ribs stretch in and out.
Out of the corner of my eye, I could see her searching me, trying to see if I was telling the truth.
“I’ve never told anyone, what it was like.” I said pausing. Should I really tell her? “Not even to master.”
Sister's Heart Chapter 17 : Chaf The three companions continued to wind steadily upward. As they walked on, they saw a torch lit with a pale fire. It was strange because even though they could see by it, it had no glow nor did it crackle like a proper fire. It steadily streamed from the iron on which it was perched not actually burning and almost not actually existing.Sister's Heart Chapter 17 : Chaf15 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Continuing onwards, they saw more and more of these odd lights. Yet as they increased in number, the less bright it seemed. It was as if the fires were fighting amongst themselves to show which one could shine the most, but in doing so they were nearly snuffing out each other’s light. Not wanting to continue past such mischievous flames, the three rested in a room. One that was filled with rusty beds made of iron poles and old worn leather. They sat on one, but kept to the edge fearing it may collapse.
“We seem to be ascending more steeply,” observed Christine.

"Alright, so we realize that you've finally managed to get over your anger," Damien started," but we also realize that you want to see this whole thing through to the end. So, if you want to stay at this base for the time being, you can. We already talked to Zulu about it. He wasn't happy about the little stunt we pulled with taking off, but he agreed anyways."
"Well, I guess we start getting used to life around here?"
"Yes. Also, you'll still have to take the classes here, so don't think you're off the hook with that."
"Just be ready for people to look at you guys sideways. Also, be ready for Pokextinctionist activity around this area. I doubt Ackerman is going to let this go easily."
"I didn't think he would," I replied as I remembered the beat down I'd attempted to give him. At the same time, I remembered the fear that I saw in Laura's eyes, the monster she'd seen in me. It would probably take some time before she looked at me normally.

“A more beautiful evening has never been seen!”
“Evening? My watch says morning at 8:15.”
“The clock must be stuck. It’s actually getting late.”
“Hey, I’m the one working! Carry your own weight!”
With the broken city of Sun not too far in the distance, the massive mechanical monstrosity moved slowly forwards, emitting a large burst of fire into the forest with each step. The machine was structured similarly to a drone, with three huge feet and two arms, but this thing was over two stories tall, and it had no apparent head. Inside its center, Akilli was piloting the entire contraption, while Illika strolled aside the thing’s legs outside on the ground. The two maintained their insane dialogue through radio headsets each had equipped over their heads.

A Musical Battle - First Hours - |Ch.1| Kazumi is in her favorite attire. The 17 year-old gal was in her golden leather blazer, silver neck tie, plain white shirt under her blazer, knee socks, silver sneakers, and her gold and silver plaid skirt. A perfect match for her golden blonde hair with light yellow highlights and wearing her favorite blue-violet moon necklace. Crossing her legs and rocking the tunes in her silver wireless headphones with built-in Mp3 player. Sitting in the school bus, beside her is her best friend, Cynthia. She and Kazumi are in the same age. Cynthia was wearing her black leather blazer, with plain red shirt behind it, black denim pants, and red boots with tangerine pearl earrings. Surfing the net in her sea green laptop with a golden sun icon behind the screen which serves as design. Her shoulder-level flawless brown hair with stylish bangs at the side gleamed in the sunlight.

history has there been recorded a true moment of peace, and all hope of one ever arriving grow slimmer with each passing moment. War is never far away.
Many races have gone extinct, such as the noble and hearty Dwarves, driven out of their homes by Goblin; The Elves, trying to avenge their ancient allies, only to be betrayed by their thralls, the Feloras. Humans were almost on this list too, but they persevered, though weakened and their numbers dwindling. Countless battles still rage, but none as great as The Purge.
Many believed it was sent to wash away all conflict, to unify the planet; but they were wrong. The Purge was here to hasten the extinction of the living, only to return them into Undeath. It did not care if someone was innocent of crimes against a different race, It needed to feed.
Where It came from, nobody knew; but as quick as It came into excistense, as quick It vanis

Lying on his back, eyes unfocused slightly gazing off to the right with the lolling of his head, Tik-Tok quietly pondered the choices he had made to get to this point in his life. The searing pain that cut through him with each ragged breath could be traced back to the bloody pattern which had bloomed just under his ribs slightly to the left. That in its self could be followed back to a round fired at mid range from a panicked scrounger who in turn had become panicked due to his bad swing and weak grip causing him to only clip Tik-Tok’s left eye and loose his mêlée weapon in the process.
Blood leaked down Tik-Tok’s face from his wounded eye socket intercepting his train of thought for a moment, creating a warm sticky puddle underneath his left ear. Although the change in temperature wasn’t registered to Tik-Tok, as his entire body was a mixture of burning and discomfort from the combination of the heavy uncomfortable gear he was wearing and the obv

Things I can only assume are birds but are far more likely to be something that is unknown to me hum, sing, and tweet a far too jubilant song along the chorus of the wind itself. I sigh and sit up, standing up slowly, so as to not shake the cage and wake the attentions of my captor, The fairy Aideen who has been tormenting me in a uniquely gentle, and yet oh so cruel way. I tip toe over to the bars and look out at the room that has made up all of my seen world for a week or so, A large bed with sheets that look as thin as the hair of a spider and are the color of leaves covered in sunlight, A dresser that seems to be carved into the side of the tree that makes up this home with images of monstrous looking beasts that I have no names for carved into it. A small bookshelf near a rather crude desk and chair that face towards a window in the tree, and of course below me I can see a

I jerked my head up to see who was there but it was just Erebus like I thought. He was giving this other guy a look of pure confusion. I was confused too and got up, leaning on Erebus’ shoulder for support.
“Clesla, are you alright?” he asked, turning to me.
I nodded. “Just fine… Lightheaded…”
Erebus smiled and we turned to the other guy with the striped hair I didn’t even know.

I'm of two minds about this, as it neatly answers the question "Why did Chloe begin calling Tanita a Kentauride?" and gives us a bit of insight into Chloe's personality, yet at the same time, it shows Tanita in a way that I'd like to think she's evolved beyond. The thought here is not romantic, but simply about friendship. What do you think? Should I keep trying to fix this, or just cut it out altogether? And if the former, wouldn't Chloe have assembled her IKEA dresser on her own? Any other comments are always greatly appreciated.
Tanita deposited the cardboard box on the bed and Chloe ripped off the tape. She began removing personal objects, a pair of boo

I awoke to sunlight beaming in on my face, and I flicked my fox ears as I looked up at the sun, then blocked it out from my eyes with my forearm. I looked around the hollow tree and saw alot of bark remains. I sneezed and wiped my nose lightly with sleeved hands. I yawned and got up, stretching and walking out of the tree, and admired the sunlight dancing off the leaves. The wind rustled the grass under my feet so that it swayed like hair in a gentle breeze. I smiled and breathed in deeply through my nose, catching the far off scent of bacon, eggs, and pancakes. I smiled.
I walked slowly towards the smell, the scent growing more and more until I thought it to be right under my nose. I smacked my lips to refresh my mouth, and I flicked my fox ears as I heard yelling. I inched closer, macking sure that nobody saw me from a window or something. I edged up to the house and listened through the wall to Adam and Alex. It was muffled.

Dragon Flower: Part 2By morning the herd was well rested and ready to be on the move again. As beautiful as this place was, Enterprise simply couldn't risk them remaining here too long, lest the Hunters showed up. Before they did, she'd resolved to stake a scouting flight with Night to see the path ahead. So far this morning, her head had felt foggy and she hoped that a quick flight would help to clear it. She approached night now in the clearing beside the river bank. "You ready?" He asked her. "I always am." She answered. He smiled. "Then let's go." He said. The pair broke into stride, gaining speed as they went. As soon as they reached 85 knots, their wings extended and they began to "bob", which is when they start to lift up and off the ground in a bobbing like motion. A second later, they flew straight up. Enterprise twirled in delight, it'd been too long since she'd flown the wind. A joyful laugh escaped her and a glance to her right told her Night was grinning at her. "Enjoying yourself?" He asked.Dragon Flower: Part 217 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Sőt, amikor végre sikerült elérnem őt, felajánlotta, hogy felvesz órák után, ezzel maximalizálva az időnket. Ez engem egyáltalán nem zavart, hisz így a Mustangban utazhattam.

I slept on the couch again, much to M's displeasure. I basically told him to suck it up. I'm not hurting anything.
I was kept awake by thoughts of possibilities. Possibilities of bringing my father back. But what did Darkrai mean? 'He'll tell you otherwise...' What's that supposed to mean? From the sound of things, he wasn't supposed to die. Evil must've changed something.
And how can I change the past? What can I possibly do? I doubt even the Kinuvi have that capability.
I was distracted from my thoughts when I saw Sarah walk into the hall. What's she doing at this time of night?
Why? I stopped for a second to make sure I wasn't actually speaking. Seriously, if she wants to go off by herself, I won't stop her.

Maybe I do. Big deal.

"Gosh, that kid should have warned me or something because that shit is-" I began talking to myself, examining all the soot on my legs and arms and hands.
I looked up quick and saw two people sitting on one large throne. They were a man and a woman. The woman wore a long dress and the man wore a large black cloak (which looked like a kings coat) and a tuxedo.
The woman oddly enough looked familiar and it came to me as I started thinking more and more about the woman.

Christine stayed alone beside her sister who lay on a table with a white sheet draped over her body. She had returned to Deckel with the surviving men who carried her sister’s body back with them. They placed Nora in the very room where the sisters had been accused of being a threat to Deckel, almost as if her body was now a testament against the accusation they had faced. Many came and tried to offer their condolences, but Christine rejected all company offered. Even Mieze was turned away.
Night fell as the stars twinkled, but no peace could be found in them for Christine. She could only sit beside Nora and stare.
