'Bout Scrapper and Amulets
“Oh, you have?” Lady Spruce asked, looking up from the bunch of notes she was holding. She was a very beautiful lady with her black hair pinned-up and wearing an elegant gown whose pattern and colors resembled the wings of a moth.
“We are quite interested in hearing them” Lord Fir added in a cheery voice. Just like Spruce he appeared rather good looking. Long dark hair was falling down his back and his robes had a pattern similar to Spruce's.
“Buuut first l'd like to know who this young lady might be?”
“M...my name is Betty. Betty Jollywaters.” I answered Fir and bowed since Aspen and her brothers did it as well.
“An outsider, I presume?” Spruce muttered curiously. She examined me from head to toe yet didn't appear all too happy about my presence. “Uh, w..what? Actually I get along well with people in my school...” I stammered baffled.
“Oh, nonono, we didn't

"He said he's gonna pass the weird around not to shoot at the big, scary dragon." she reiterated.
"I'd like to think he was being nice." Alavon replied.
"Hm." Lycarillyn hummed noncommittally.
"What?" Alavon asked in exasperation.
"I just don't trust it." the other replied. "I have a bad feeling."
"You just need to relax. How's the search for the water person going?"
"It's not." Lycarillyn said. "I can feel that the aquakinetic is a girl, but aside from that, nothing new."
Alavon rolled onto her side and looked at her.
"Do you wanna do your seeky thing?"
Lycarillyn frowned at her from across the room. "Seeky thing?"
"You know, where you close your eyes and I make sure you don't trip?"
"Oh, that." She scrunched her brow thoughtfully. "Yes, I think I would like to."
She put down the glass paperweight she had been fidge

At the edge of Numeri Town, sat a large Dragonic air-ship,golden exterior the wings were marked by black designs. At the back of the ship, a ramp as extended to now one to exit the ship. From within the bowels of the air-ship stepped the women known as Rosa and Nebula, as well as, the youth named Ventus. They were later followed by the man named Volito. They were all surrounded by their respective element.
Rosa had a radiant fiery aura that took on the shape of a Dragon before dispersing and scorching the ground. As she walked across the dirt and grass, her every foot fall scorched the earth burning it black. She exhaled lightly, orange flames rolling from her maw as she closed her eyes. She focused on using her keen sense of smell, sniffing out at least five scents. She could smell that the newbies, Nash and Vash had already left to track down Zed the Twilight, the Black Airs Baby Bird, and an enigmatic third person.

My eyes fall on the scroll I sat on the counter, contemplating if I should communicate with her now.
Impatiently, I yank the scroll of the counter, immediately pressing the written down combination into my stomach.
“...remind yourself that you aren’t going to die.” The old lady’s words rang through my mind.
Sara pushes outward. Odd, my stomach is still flat.
She pushes out again, reaching farther this time!
“Umm, Sara? What are you doing?” I ask my stomach as Sara starts punching out at random!
I look down to see green mist slowly seep from my belly button!
“Sara?!” I ask as more green mist slowly pours out, slowly taking a life sized human shape!
“For over one-thousand-five-hundred years, I lay silent and blind in your belly, Mariana! Why do you now awaken me?” A deep, feminine voice calls ou

Hecaya - Ivrobet Kingdom
The sounds of battle roared off the snow coated granite that towered over the white marble kingdom, followed by the tell tale clash of metal on metal as weapons met with sinister intent. Origins of the cause of the fight was unknown, at least to common knowledge, but it had roots somewhere in the blood lines, The Meraculas and The Sanctus--the first beings ever to land on Hecaya.
The Meraculas were the purebloods, those devoid of the darkness that plagued their fallen brothers, though they had now fallen to fewer and fewer numbers as generations passed. The Sanctus were the fallen, those that turned from the light and took up the mantle of darkness and twisted arcane magics that few dared to mess with.
The two factions had warred over the eons, shedding blood as they tried to take or hold the throne. Now a new war greeted it, bloody and cold.
Warrior clashed with warrior. Priest against priest. Assassins slipped out of the shadows then faded away on

Ellie was awake in her room and heard the commotion of Wolf falling down. She bolted out into the hallway to confront her. “Wolf what’re you doing??” she asked suddenly. Isaiah could be heard getting up in the background. Since Ellie left he was cold > >
"I'm up..I'm up..." She yawned. "anyone else up yet?"
Ellie glanced back into her room where Isaiah was now putting a shirt on to come stand out in the hallway with her. She pointed to him with a grin on her face. Bouncing over to Wolf, Lerin and Ender’s room she peered inside to see if the others were awake. Lerin still seemed to be out and Ender wasn’t there. “Where’d Lav run off to?” Ell

“Out of the road, Rae.” Garfield came up beside her and kicked down the door. He and raven rushed into the room to see Arella lying on the floor, shaking.
“Arella, what happened?” Raven asked her as she reached towards her.
“No! Don’t touch me!”
Raven drew back her hand, “Alright, I won’t touch you. Just tell us what happened.”
“There was a man in here, talking to me. H-He was red and had four eyes.”
Raven’s eyes widened, “What did he say to you?”
“He said that he was my grandfather and that he was trapped. He said I needed to help free him, but then something inside me knew that it was wrong. Then all of these flashes kept appearing in my mind. Am I going crazy?”
“No, you’re not going crazy. His name is Trigon and-”

Bits of hay splintered out of her cot and poked at her skin, leaving it red and dotted.
She could see Esper from where she was, pickaxe limp in her hand, face against the wall in a corner.
She was eating something, she could tell. But if she had something, she would have shared.
She furrowed her brows and sat forward on her knees, crawling towards the cell door.
She rattled her steel cuff against a bar to a familiar tune to reach Esper’s attention.
Sure enough, Esper turned around, her adam’s apple rising and falling just as she saw Thais.
Thais waved her closer and Esper nodded towards their overseer, currently stuffing his face with a ketchup-covered corn.
Later, she would ask.
And later, she did.
“What were you eating today?” Thais said, eyeing her accusingly.
“What? Nothing,” Esper said, patting down her own cot and pushing the bits of straw back in through the holes they had torn in th

When I was a kid I used to ask my mother, why we weren’t allowed to play in the woods behind our house.
“Because there are dangers there”, she would say.
“What kind of dangers?” I would ask.
She wouldn’t answer, but I’d imagine all kinds of monsters - dragons, two-headed wild dogs, bears as big as houses and little goblin creatures with pointy teeth and razor-sharp claws – lurking in the undergrowth.
I saw my first real monster, when I was six years old. They showed us pictures of them at school. I didn’t think they were particularly scary, those men with pointy teeth and glowing eyes and the oversized dogs. They taught us about them, their names, their weaknesses, how attack and prey on humans. Much later, they taught us about the war, the war that had divided our country and cost the lives of millions.
I grew up fearing the supernaturals, sometimes I think I hated them.
But now I’m one of

“Brenna, you really must start moving.” stated Mila.
“It’s too early.” I complained.
“You’ll be late for your training this morning If you don’t get ready soon.” replied Mila.
I sat up in shock, staring at the time. She was right. I must have forgotten to set my alarm clock last night.
“Is Brandon up?” I asked.
“No. Should I redouble my efforts to get his attention?” she asked.
Nodding, I said, “Yeah. He’s going to need it.”
I hurried around my room. I needed to be ready for training, but I still needed to look cute for James. He was the boss, the very attractive boss. Well, he was more than just a pretty face. James was really talented.

All of the members of the Old Loyalty, as they'd now been dubbed, went into the mansion, trying to console my Dad, to get him to forgive himself. Even though Striker had arrived, I still hadn't gotten to actually meet him. By the time I'd seen him arrive earlier, everyone was already listening to Dad.
I walked over to Striker, but quickly picked up on a feeling of irritation coming from him; he didn't want to be here. "Cousin," he greeted without much enthusiasm.
Jura merely walked over and slapped him in the back of the head. "You haven't seen him for fourteen years, and this is how you greet him?! And where the hell were you all this time?!" I took a step back, guessing she got her temper from her dad.
"Doing what, may I ask?"
"Hanging out at nightclubs." That response earned him a throat chop. Holding his throat, he croaked, "Good *cough* to see you too..."
"You're related to Aura?" I asked, wondering how the hell Striker was even related by blood.

Othello was howling. (Remember how we left Othello howling in chapter three? Of course you do.) Well, he continued to howl all through chapter four as well, as Ouija conversed with the cat.
Ouija went over to Othello and petted him. "Othello, it's alright boy, he's a nice cat." Othello stopped howling and lay down - quite a good ways from the cat, eyeing him warily.
The cat was sitting up now and peering into the darkness.
"And what is that, I wonder?" the cat said.
"It's my dog Othello," answered Ouija. "Haven't you ever seen a dog before?"
"Of course I've seen dogs before!" snapped the cat. "What do you think I am - a dolt?"
"I am referring to that!" the cat pointed. "What do you call that?"
Ouija looked towards where the cat's enormous paw was pointing.
"That?" asked Ouija pointing at the creek.
"NO!" "I know what a creek i
Chapter 2, Full The leaf skittered across the floor, making barely a sound. The gentle breeze that carried it brushed across Blizzard’s scales, but he payed the slight draft no attention. His eyes were trained on the deceitful blacked leaf that had escaped the cooking fires earlier that night.Chapter 2, Full3 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters
Blizzard shifted on his haunches, his gaze locked on the leaf. Suddenly, he shot from his crouched position, sailing through the air and landed claws first on his target. Blizzard rolled, effortlessly, flicking the leaf high into the air above him. His back hit the ground and his wings shot out, creating a slight updraft and sending the leaf spinning into the air. It twirled and danced, slowly making it’s way downwards towards the young dragon.
The soft torch light from the hallway dimmed for a moment, briefly casting the den into shadow. Blizzard’s head snapped to the entrance, scanning for any sign of movement. The

“And what makes you think you can do it?” The commander asked crossing his arms.
“Experience,” the lady answered curtly. She sat down her handbag and popped it open. “I would be more than happy to demonstrate if you don’t mind sending your pet dragon after me…”
With a nod from the commander, Rachel charged at the lady.
And with lightning reflexes, the lady reached into her bag and tossed a collar at Rachel which snapped shut around her neck. Then the lady danced out of Rachel’s charge.
A Light in the Dark chapter 3The next day, everyone was sleeping. It was 8:05 am, and Dylan was in his own bed upstairs, Nolan was hiding in the closet, and Alice was asleep on the couch. Nolan and Alice still remained in the basement. Riley... She was probably still in hiding. Possibly haunting the road where she had died.A Light in the Dark chapter 37 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters
When Riley died, she was nineteen. She had died in a car crash, which also took her friend's life. Where her friend was, she did no know. Maybe he moved on. She hasn't seen him since after they died. Now, it's been three years since the crash. She is now twenty-two. She doesn't remember much before she died. All she knew was that she had a feeling she should stay. After a year of the two teens death, Riley met the three strange teenagers. Because of what they were, they were able to see her. It might have been because she allowed them to see her. They never saw any other ghosts. One would appear once in awhile, but it would never stay.

Jacynth Myers paused as she entered the school. For a small southern town, it really was one of the more liberal schools when it came to the dress-code. Maybe that was why Daddy sent me here? With less than a semester to go until her senior year of high school was finished, her father had decided that it was time to move. Again. So, they picked up like they always did and moved halfway across the country. From uptown New York to the suburbs of…wherever the hell she was now.
A quick glance at the schedule she held in her hand reminded her of the school's name. Raider Valley Warriors, located in Raider Valley, Texas. Raider Valley Warriors? How corny could you get? She adjusted the purple, off-the-shoulder crop-top and proceeded down the hall towards her first class. AP Trigonometry with Mr. Ricks. Mister Ricks? she snickered under her breath. Even his name sounds corny. Other students flooded the narrow hall, seeming to dim the light that shon
The Problem with False (24)The Badgerman had come to call on them as they were congregated in the lounging area at the tail end of that week, preparing to meet Pam at the train station. She had gotten herself a ticket, as she had planned, and supposedly done enough research to have an idea of where to go. It had been a week with no sight of or questioning from the Badgerman and he came as company again, without his pad or pen. As he appeared alongside Importune, False groaned and cursed his bad timing, because he very much wanted to share coffee, but both he and Judith had been bullied into viewing Pam’s departure. And what was there to view, he thought? He shouldn’t be amused, not in the slightest.The Problem with False (24)4 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters
“It’s seems I’ve arrived at a poor time again,” the Badgerman laughed. “I do try, honestly, to come at a good hour. But you seem to be busy often.”

Chapter 4 – The Despair of the Beast
Despite their best efforts, Kaito and Luka were having difficulty finding any way to free Gakupo before the festival. Not being practitioners of magic, they resorted to physical means to break the items entrapping him, but nothing they did harmed the chain or the collar. After that, they searched fruitlessly in the library of the House of Gifts, looking for something that could counteract the spell, but there was nothing about the arcane there, just books about history, chemistry, biology and other natural subjects.
Hiring another mage to break the enchantment was out of the question. Not only they were exorbitantly expensive (Oto’s coffers had truly suffered after Verdirrama received his payment), but it would’ve alerted the elders to what they were doing.
The pair was discussing the matter one afternoon, while practicing archery in the field behind the tower. Technically speaking, Luka was supposed to be helping out Meiko with a
Outline of Magic in Chaosvolt's Setting1. Magic is primarily spiritual in nature, or at least that is the dominant interpretation for the primary source of the energy used. The spirit realm is perceived as a realm of living energy, interpreted as a mirror to the physical realm, dominated by matter.Outline of Magic in Chaosvolt's Setting8 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters
2. The origins of magic rely on techniques developed to exploit the link between body and soul, to mentally manipulate spiritual energy. Simple techniques to manipulate the spirit for meditative purposes led to the development of ways to draw that energy into the physical realm.
3. By shaping and manipulating that energy in complex ways, it results in specific effects on the physical realm, resulting in spells. The exact flow of energy can be described in formulas that allow spells to be taught and recorded in spellbooks.
4. While these patterns can be complex, the actual art of manipulating that energy, and learning how to do so, is seen as more complicated than the character of any individual spell. This is why a given spellboo

I wake up with a burden as I’m reminded today we’re supposed to do the training course. Either we’ll become official students and embark on the path to becoming true warriors, or we’ll get kicked out, and… I don’t know what after that. I really, really hope I have it in me. I guess today I’m going to find out… ugh…

As soon as I get into the training area I am greeted by Draco from yesterday. “Good morning, Shadoblayd.” He welcomes me once he locates me.
