"What's that, then, on your arm? You got a tattoo of a dragon?"
One of the girls reached out to touch the silvery scar-tattoo on her right forearm, and she flinched away. A tattoo surrounded by scar tissue.
"It won't come off! I'm not sure what it is ..."
"Give her anethstetic, then, and burn it off! Such things are not allowed here and with something of that nature, she'll never be adopted. No family wants a ..."
When they tried to burn away the dragon, its roars echoed in her mind as her soul screamed in agony.
Their hope was to replace, at least, the offensive and barbaric tattoo with a more sympathy-inducing burn scar. It would make her more appealing, the poor girl. Instead, the dragon was only emphasized, with its open mouth ready to devour; wings raised as it faced its enemies, long tail wound around

"Hey, Drexyll?" I whispered, nudging my sleeping brother. He opened his brown eyes, and looked up at me.
"What is it, Charity?" He muttered.
"I thought I saw something..."
"Yeah. It looked shiny. I saw it fall to the ground..."
Drexyll laughed silently. He told me I was just imagining things, and we would go check it out in the morning if I wanted to.
"Sure." I replied, and then snuggled up next to him.
What the shiny thing was, I didn't know at the moment. But it would change the way I viewed the world forever.
Magic-part 2The sun was getting lower in the sky, sending rays of fading sunlight throughout the town. Carter shuffled through it's Main Street, the only disturbance of a car zooming by happening every five or ten minutes. Stores windows had homey glows flying through the windows and onto the empty streets. Carter would always walk around Main Street after football practice, admiring the calm beauty of the serene town. Just as he was eyeing the pastries in the bakery, a dark figure emerged from an alleyway.Magic-part 23 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Hey, boy." A raspy voice called out from deep within the figure. Carter turned sharply, his eyes widening at the sight of the man.
"What do you want?" Carter wasn't the least bit frightened, for he believed he could take this man to the ground with no trouble. Carter stuffed his hands in his pockets impatiently, this man probably just wanted him to buy something.
"Do you believe in magic?" The voice asked, the man stepping closer. Carter lifted his brow at the question.

We continue to follow Aries and she finally brings us to the cafe. She opens the door for us to go inside. “Thanks.” I go in with Pagan and Brucey. The inside of the cafe is absolutely filthy, run down, and utterly baron. There's nothing but dust and garbage. Aries opens a compartment in her arm, revealing many different crystals. She grabs one which is greenish and shaped like a rain drop. “Why isn’t anyone here?” I ask.
“Because we are not in the Lay-Line yet.” She then points the crystal around the place. It suddenly glows bright green when pointed at the dusty old counter. She walks over behind the counter and points the gem towards the floor. It glows even brighter, so much so that it's becoming blinding. I shield my eyes, and Aries puts the crystal away shortly after and kneels down on the ground, running her fingers on the floor.
“Do you think we'll be safe at The Lay-Line?” Pagan asks.

Red Mondays, Pink ThursdaysI never realised something was wrong till I was seven. To me the colours have always been there, dancing through the air and threading through the very earth itself.

She stared at me as did the class and that's when the hurtful words were thrown my way. I was called a freak, crazy, insane and so many more. I was confused, wondering why they didn't see a buts of green when they heard or saw the word Friday.
My my problems grew when the colours also stuck to people and gave me different feelings even if someone completely different had the same colour. For example my eldest brother is a fiery red and fills me with a warm and safe feeling but a boy at my school is the same colour and the colour fills me with dread and disgust. The colours help me judge people and understand them but at the same time separates me from them.
I remember when
Draconic Revelations - Chapter 5 - Flight PracticeI slowly woke up as sunlight shone on me through the window. I opened one eye lazily as I checked if I was still a dragon. Yup, I was. I still had everything - scales and scutes, claws and wings, everything. I slowly stood up on all fours and looked around the room, spreading my wings that were folded all the time when I was asleep. I heard some satisfying cracks. It felt good unfolding them as having them unfolded for a long time wasn't too satisfying, although I was asleep and couldn't really feel anything. I walked through the corridor, which was large enough for me. Seeing as Mr. Field made this all a proportionate size for dragons, I was pretty sure he was preparing this for us. It was a nice gesture, to say the least.Draconic Revelations - Chapter 5 - Flight Practice8 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Oyuki Tsukino 2 It had been about a month since her last mission for Kazuhiku's group. Yuki, or her given name of Tsukino Oyuki, used her own three-layer encryptment code to write down every detail of her past mission. Even her own parents, whom could break most codes, couldn't break it. She was in her gym class, or supposed to be. She was on top of the school's roof, resting. As she was resting, a songbird flew to her and landed on her chest. Despite being very small and light, Yuki jumped and shifted into her Kitsune form. When she saw the bird, she shifted back to normal.Oyuki Tsukino 22 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

What are Kinetics?Everything ElementalWhat are Kinetics?30 minutes ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
In Elemental, there exists a race of beings known as “kinetics.” Kinetics are human-like creatures with access to immense power. Moreover, kinetics have animalistic traits that offer them greater facility as well as unnaturally-long lifespans. Here we’ll explore some of the differences and similarities of the human race and their counterparts.
Where do they come from?
Kinetics hail from all human races, creeds, and nations, and no specific human race (as in, Gallean, Britannian, Sengoku, usw.) has a higher chance of producing more kinetics. Kinetics can come into the world in a few different ways:
Also known as a “birthright,” one may be born as a kinetic either from one or two kinetic parents, or, in rare cases, a human couple may have a kinetic child. In the general case, a kinetic or half-kinetic couple have no guarantee that their elemental abilities will be passed on to their child. For instance, a pyrokin

I wanted to learn more about this beautiful girl, but I didn't want to seem like I was a stalker, or obsessed, for I did not know her quite yet. How does one go about learning about someone in a non-creepy, stalker-like way. Well now that I think about it, it's probably not possible at all. So, I began following this girl, and learning more about her.
She seems like a nice person, and all. I think she's single, but I don't want to come out of nowhere, and try to whisk her away, only probably to become hated by her. I sometimes sneak into her house, and I know that's a crime, and I investigate into things.
The one day when I did this, I discovered papers telling me she was stricken with a disease that would kill her in just a few weeks. I felt an immense pain, like none I'd ever felt before. It was like I had known this person all my life, and was suddenly told they would die, and I was in denial. I had never met this person, yet...I felt connected to them.

Über einem verschlafenen Nest in Himmelsrand erklomm gerade die Sonne den Horizont und brachte den Morgentau auf den Gräsern zum Glitzern. Trotz des nahenden Sommers war es morgens immer noch kalt und teilweise trat den Auerochsen beim Atmen der Dampf aus den Nüstern, was von den immer noch niedrigen Temperaturen sprach.
Himmelsrand war eines der kühlsten Länder Tamriels. Es war die Heimat der Nord, die Eis und Schnee trotzten und Lobeshymnen auf die raue Schönheit ihres Landes sangen. Es war ein herbes, zerklüftetes Fleckchen Erde, dem tatsächlich ein Charme wilder Schönheit und unberührter Landschaft anhaftete. Schroffe Felsen, klare Flüsse, dichte Wälder und selbst heiße Quellen und dampfende Moore fand man in diesem Land, das wie seine Bewohner reich an Legenden und arm an üppigem Kapital war.

Two years. It has been two years since I first came to the magic school known as Vane that is housed on the planet called Zerron. Zerron, which is located within the same galaxy as Earth, or so I've been told, is mostly filled with sand. This is also something that was told to me. I haven't been outside of the school since I've arrived here. The year, at least back home, is 1997, but I guess that doesn't matter now. Time means squat on Zerron and most people here have their own measurement of time that I'm not accustomed to.
I was born on Earth, under the name of Jennibelle. A name given to me by my mother. I never liked that name to begin with. Most people knew me as JB anyway. One day I met a boy and my world and identity changed forever. Don't think this is a girl meets boy sort of story either, because it isn't.

The silver bay stood in a clearing, nose down amongst the flowers at his feet. The little glen was a distance off from the main herd, very quiet but in an easy run’s reach if needed. He’d wanted some quiet time away from the gossip, and also to practice his magic. And so...he’d found this little place.
The snow had recently all melted away, but the trees had not yet really begun to leaf out, nor had flowers bloomed. They were still little sprouts, peeking above the damp earth...all except the ones in a circle about Rilien’s hooves. They were tall, with blooms spreading a colorful joy about him, and the true scent of spring. His nose was down among a bunch of purple flowers, inhaling slowly and enjoying himself.
With that patch greened, he took several steps to the side, lone mane near

My heart pounded in my chest until the sleepiness wore off and I realized I was safe and warm in my own bed. Lying my head back down on my pillow, I took a deep breath and tried to remember how it had all happened. Like a flood it all came back to me, every detail from the moment Kirin's surprised and frightened eyes had flung open to the moment Levi had scooped me up onto his shoulders and drug me home. Closing my eyes tighter, I tried to block it out, to focus on the fact that they had come for me and that I was safe now. When I did that I was able to manage a little smile. Unconvincing, I concluded as a frown replaced it.Ribbons Red Chapter 12 Judgement day4 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

“Aye, but you Nal'sarkoth are led by soft-bellied merchants who can't see any further than next month's balance sheet. No one was willing to spend the coin for laborers and materials that wasn't going to the fur trapping business or the orchards,” replied Die'tra with a disdainful snort.

The only explanation for it had to be his dream but he still didn’t believe that what had happened in the dream really happened. Perhaps he had slept wrong and now had a pinched nerve or other odd problem. He made excuses that his science reared mind could
