Sara and the Lost Swann - ConclusionAfter hours of fruitless struggles I think I must have dozed off, because when I next opened my eyes the sun was beginning to set, and its dying light was filtering in through the half drawn curtains. During my earlier wriggles I’d thought of perhaps trying to reach them and call for help, but then I realised that the window faced out the back of the house. Beside, with me tied up against Rachel like this, how would I even reach it?Sara and the Lost Swann - Conclusion12 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
I looked at my friend, her face held mere centimetres away from mine. She was asleep too. Amazing how being fighting against ropes and duct tape can absolutely tire you out. We’d spent so long fighting against our bonds with no success. The chafing around my wrists, arms and feet were testament to how hard we’d been struggling. As indeed was my body temperature. Being held this close to my best friend, in conjunction with the warm summer heat, meant I was roasting hot and dripping with sweat.

The golden and red rays of the sunset flooded into your room, and you could hear the guests beginning to arrive, excited to be a part of one of the Earl Phantomhive's parties. Of course, the idea had first been introduced by his fiance, Lady Elizabeth, and he practically had no choice but to agree with it.
You were (F/N) (L/N), a servant of the Phantomhive estate. Having been employed for a year and a half now, you had seen some exceptionally odd things in your service but had grown quite close to the other servants as well, aggravating as they were sometimes.
However, tonight you were very excited, as your master had said that he would allow all of the servants to attend the party, as a reward for exceptionally hard, or trying to at least.
You had picked out a beautiful white dress that cascaded to the floor in waves. It truly looked amazing and you couldn't wait to put it on.
Slipping it on, you put your hair in (favorite style) and opened the door to the room. Walking down the stair

"Just USB wires for my technology granddad." Darci, who had brunet short hair wearing a red blouse with black shorts with matching black tights said as she was engrossed into her brand new phone.

"Whatever granddad." Darci said as she shifted her focus to her Nintendo handheld device to play Pocket Monsters.
"Bahhh, no respect." He grumbled as he left the room. As he hobbled into his main study, he looked the room over and a smile came to his aged lips. Plastered on the wall was thousands of paper cutouts, about how Evil Dick once a

Will smiled as he slid his fingers over the soft, light brown leather. Finally, his new saddle had arrived - and he had to contain himself not to fling his arms around his sponsor's neck. The latter, though, had only smiled and waved a hand at his exuberant thanks and ensured him 'the pleasure was all his and he was sure the gift was by no means for nothing'. And yet, he had looked like a true hero to Will, like a... lifesaver.
Patiently, he had explained its usage to the paralysed boy; told him how the aids worked, what was to keep in mind, what he was able to do in the future and what not, and how Windmill was supposed to be trained now.
Will soaked the information in like a sponge. With every word, it became more real and believable that he really would be able to ride again. He had been close to giving up on it, close to throwing all hope away, but now he was relieved that he hadn't let himself go like that. God still was a constant in his

Jarvis explained what happened to tony.

Alex glared up at Ryan in challenge. "Why I am here is irrelevant. What are you doing this far from home."
Ryan maintained his smug sneer. "You are not in the position to ask questions, supposedly dead-man, but I will humor you: My uncle owns this joint and on weekends he sometimes calls for me to help him out. But really, you're supposed to be dead, so why do I see you standing before me."
Alex growled under his breath through gritted teeth. "What does it matter whether I'm alive or not? I'm no longer attending the academy so you and I have no business with each other."
Ryan lifted a finger. "Oh, but quite the contrary. See, you have already influenced the mind of your cousin into believing lies of how I'm a scumbag and I know I can't have her as long as you continue to spew such venom into her ears."

ah yes. My mother works at the school. "I just ran home. It's not that far."
But mom wasn't paying attention. She had already zoned out.
Well, according to my awed neighbor, she was jogging and when she got to her house, it felt like something was missing. She backed up to the other side of the street and squinted, and realized what was missing was our house. She couldn't remember whether or not was it still there when she started jogging.
Some the houses around said that they had not noticed anything unusual, nor had they heard any loud noises. But most of the surrounding neighbors had been at work, so most of them had nothing to say.
All of my worldly posessions were gone.
At least I had a wide variety of food I could survive on. I think.

Gill managed to scrub away the smudged and faded copy of Cyril’s writings on his palm, but, when he’d gone to remove the letters Cyril had personally written on him, he’d stopped himself. He wanted to know what they meant, right? He’d need to take pictures of them before trying to get rid of them, so he’d have something to analyze. He cursed under his breath—he’d left his phone in Cyril’s office.
Gill moved to unroll his sleeve and maybe cover the writing on his arm—it was embarrassing! He glared at the symbols—he would never have a tattoo, he liked his skin free of any sort of blemish and it just seemed completely unnatural to have black ink on his skin like this. His distress over the symbols was distracting him, and he didn’t even see Andrea before running straight into her.

Alvalek Empire (Sadaza)
Red, green, and gold
Blue, purple, and silver
Sadaza let the alvalek decide their own colors. They chose from the pallet of their surrounding environment to please Sadaza by honoring the Atruna's greatest creation, Eldora. Heavily inspired by Celtic druids, Native American mythology, and Chinese mythology.
Currently, the empire is divided into three regions: Arikaree in the towering trees, Ustanali in the deepest of caves (crystal caves), and the sacred grove of Echota (Son Doong). Echota is a shallow(ish) cave with an open ceiling. Trees and plants grow alongside the free-flowing river that provides the alvalek with pearls.
Consequently, the empire's also composed of three different races: the svalni, svart'ai, and stanvir. The current empress is stanvir. She chose to marry eniyan (non-alvalek).
