“I think so. I didn’t exactly come here with much.” Amelyna replied, picking at the loose t-shirt and shorts she had been given as her original clothes were essentially scraps after the car crash and her flight through the forest.
“Good. As soon as Doctor Connor comes to check on you, we can leave.”
Silence fell. They could hear people talking out in the hallway and beeping of medical equipment in nearby rooms. Amelyna felt like she should say something, she just didn’t know what. If only the overly-bleached smell of hospitals combined with that faint undertone of… something else she couldn’t quite place didn’t give her a headache. Funny how they were supposedly underground and this hospital smelled the same as all the others she’d been in. Weren’t magic users supposed t
WonderTech Chapter 11 Business BoomJames lifted, and then smashed down, a large hammer onto a sheet of burning bronze metal. His face concealed behind a black welding mask, he didn’t flinch as countless sparks erupted from the sheet in every direction, showering the basement in light. In his other hand, he held a pair of black pliers with which he had a tight grip on the bronze sheet as he repeatedly smashed into it with his hammer. He lifts the sheet of metal to his protected face, inspecting it closely before dunking it in a nearby vat of water. Steam roared out the vat as the metal rapidly cooled. Once the surging steam stopped, he lifted the dripping wet piece of metal out and, with great care, placed it on a table, where countless different pieces and parts where wildly laid out. Taking the welding mask off with one gloved hand, James stared down at the bent sheet of bronze.WonderTech Chapter 11 Business Boom3 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Nigel and Jason had sadly passed on, so Burgess Branch was still on the lookout for a new Descendant of North to join us, although the others were getting on themselves. If it wasn’t for Billy’s nephew and young daughter, we’d be down to one member at the rate we were going.
Jason had been replaced by a Descendant named Lily Llewelyn, and Samson had also stepped down, being replaced by one of Penelope’s old friends, Harry Roberts.

"I never lied," Alaric said. "None of you asked me, Alaric, are you the faerie king? So I never had to say so."
"Amazing," Wilton said with no tone of amusement.
"I never sensed you..." Viola said, a slight tremble in her voice.
"Course not," Efe stood, no longer under Viola's magic. "His magic is strong enough to hide that."

"Well, Your Majesty?" Count Wallenberg asked, tapping his silver cane on the ground. "What will it be? Are you going to come quietly, or are my men going to have to get quite uncivilised?"
A storm raged in Sara's heart, which didn't even have to do with the revelation that Oleg was the tsar of Baikalia; in hindsight, she could've guessed that. The knowledge that the overly fancy man with his oddly white hair was responsible for her mother's death and the recent attack on Sylene that had almost desecrated Zemyna's temple was what set her ablaze. "You killed my mother, syknaskyle!" she shouted, running towards him. "I will rip-"
"Be quiet, girl," Wallenberg snapped, stepping towards his great, white horse. "If you come any closer, I will simply ride off and give my men the order to attack."
Sara stopped reluctantly, trying to kill the count with her eyes instead.

Sapphire were sitting in the den. Well, to rephrase, I was sitting on a couch in the den but Sapphire was on her knees in front of me, bowing her head in shame. She was upset for keeping the secret of Robert Dolph from me, and she was also upset that I forced her to tell me. It was kind of embarrassing having her always bowing and scraping in front of me like this when she really didn’t need to.
“Sapphire, who is Robert Dolph?” I asked. “I know he’s some kind of big political guy, but what is his relationship with you? Who was he when you met him?” Sapphire didn’t answer at first but merely tugged on her hair in fright, like I’d be angry.
“He was a normal man when I met him.” She whispered. “He bought my lamp at an antique shop and didn’t know I dwelled inside. When he freed me, he became my master. He made his three wishes in the span of two weeks.” Sapphire said.
“Why are you so afraid of him?”

“Why did you start up with him?! Why?!” he yelled out, Bane scrunching his nose.
“He's the one that started it first! Not me!” Bane shouted back, flailing his arms into the air. “I told you, I told you, that I shouldn't have come. But you didn't listen!”
“It wasn't my orders, it was the kings. You know I can't go against the king-”
“Yeah 'cause you're a loyal admiral of the king's army I know.” Bane interrupted, stomping off again and Nix shaking his head and looking back towards Arin and Barnum.
“I guess he really didn't want to come here.” Barnum muttered.

Mortals are pretty self-explanatory. Essentially... they are us. Any life-form capable of experiencing emotions can be considered a Primary Species.

Youkai Academy. Morning.
Tsukune felt his smile grow big as many students swarmed around, each taking a newspaper from the table that he and the others stood next to.
It had been two days since he, the girls, and Takeshi were caught in a struggle between them and a few criminals that took refuge at the academy, attacking students left and right so the boss, a doppelganger, could take their appearances and hide in plain sight. Had it not been for the group, things could've been much worse.
And now, that the Newspaper Club's first issue was out and going like hotcakes, things seemed to be back to normal for the academy, more so with the school year having almost kicked off another month despite the chaos that followed Tsukune since he and the re

So what happened to the Impa Shilup? I looked around, only seeing myself under the dome. Outside, I could see fire trucks and emergency responders peering in.Born in Flame- Ch2., Part 144 minutes ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Miss?” The closest hazmat-suit covered responder stared at me through the dome. "Umm...are you alright?”
"I…I think so." I started checking myself for injuries and stopped, staring at my hands. Long, thin, swirling black tattoos now graced my hands, flowing up my arms and disappearing in my shirt. I pulled at the collar of my blouse, looking down. The tattoos covered my chest and stomach, spiraling down onto my hips and disappeared into my slacks.
"Where did these come from?" I looked at the responder. He looked like an elf, from what I could see of his face.
He looked at me grimly. "I think we need to get you to a hospital miss. Stand back and we'll lower

It was probably the initial tones that got her first. It was long and low. Not the howl of a hunt. But instead the howl of a pack. More specifically a pack on the move, announcing its presence to all of those that could hear it.
But to her, it was more. As others joined in, it quickly became a howl letting those nearby know that not only that they are no threat. And, on top of that, it was a howl of welcoming. A howl to invite others to join them if they wanted. To escort them if they didn't trust these strangers passing through. And to just run with the pack if you wanted to and either didn't care how much of a threat they were, or felt that they posed no threat to you.
Either way... It was pack. A pack. The first one she had heard in months. Not since she and her father had entered the lands protected by the crown and its hunters.

Name: Makoto Shishio
First Appearance: Rurouni Kenshin Chapter #54 (Manga)(1995) Rurouni Kenshin Episode #33 (1996)
Occupation: Leader of the Juppongatana
Abilities: Just like Kenshin; he is very observant over his opponent and is skilled with a sword, but he also has monstrous strength, stamina and resistance to injury.
Weapons: His sword Mugenjin, its self-sharpening serrated edge flaked away in a regular pattern as it was used, and it had become soaked in the flesh and body fat of the victims he had killed over the years. As a result he is able to execute fire-oriented techniques using the oils as fuel.
Bio: Makoto Shishio is the Battosai’s successor, he once worked for the government but afterwards his “comrades” betrayed him and attempted to assassinate him by burning him alive but they failed as Shishio somehow survived. He now leads a dangerous group called the “Juppongatana” a

I got up from by bed, then proceeding to walk towards the door. I stop, What if they are asleep? Chances are, they might be so tired to care. I tried to remove all of my thoughts as I opened the door. I opened it just enough so that I could see outside my room. No one was in sight. I push the door open even more, trying not to make it squeak. The coast looked clear as I went down the stairs. Treading softly so I did

I could feel the wind blowing gently; hear the leaves rustling as though whispering to me. The grass I laid on was soft, like a blanket, and the sun warmed me to the bone. I felt so comfortable, I didn't want to open my eyes and face reality. However, I could feel that thing looming nearby. The creature had been looming nearby for awhile now, moving softly waiting for a moment to strike me. I opened my eyes, and saw great long yellow teeth hovering over me. Drool dripped out of the thing's jaw and dripped onto my face. I stared back into its face, and those horrible blood-shot eyes stared back at me. The grotesquely deformed troll stood straight, looming over me and roared. It lifted a club over its head before swinging it down at me. I quickly rolled out of the way, narrowly avoiding having my head crushed against the ground. I pushed myself up off the floor, and stood to face the monster. Its face looked like it had been crushed at some point, and its right shoulder drooped
Aetheran Chronicles: IntroductionJust because we think we understand something, doesn't mean we know everything about it. There are anomalies in this world, and we act as though we understand them thoroughly; this is just that: an act. We know that if we drop an object, it will fall, but that's not a total truth. If you fall from a great height, it will kill you; again, not a complete truth.Aetheran Chronicles: Introduction6 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
If ever these anomalies should accumulate enough, the world we live in will become something completely foreign. We'd know nearly nothing.
This world is more anomaly than predictability, or it at least used to be. We know many forces, but one emerged, thus far unknown. The effects of this force brought a majority of the population of the planet to the brink of destruction. Death followed death; destruction followed destruction. The world continued to wither away until a safe haven was finally formed.
