The Unlucky Adventurers -03- Castle Ixerys (1/2)The group of adventurers found themselves traveling down a winding forest pathway. The only sound they could hear besides their own footsteps was the chirping of various species of bird. The wind was thankfully calm given the cold winter air, but still, it seemed the path in front of them had no end, even a couple of hours after they'd started their journey. Kat led the group, and she walked holding a scribbled map in front of her face. Lia looked over Kat's shoulder and studied the map with a puzzled expression.The Unlucky Adventurers -03- Castle Ixerys (1/2)10 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Kat," Lia finally said, "did you draw this map yerself?"
"Why yes I did," she replied.
"I see," Lia nodded, "don't give up the day job, eh?"
Kat looked momentarily perturbed by Lia's remark, though she was altogether unphased. The map marked Reinard & Akiyama as the start point, with a crudely drawn path spiraling all over the paper before finally ending at a giant "X" marking Ixerys's castle. Rinko began hovering over Kat's other shoulder.
"Um, Kat..." Rinko began,
A Life Eternal~ Chapter 3As work progressed, Titanic grew more curious about what had been going on in the world above while she was gone. Ballard called into Washington and had a whole series of files downloaded. Titanic had no trouble accessing it just like she had no trouble accessing the rest of the ships electrical outlets. Knowing what she could do, Titanic sometimes thought it fun to play the occasional prank on an unsuspecting crewman. A toilet that would plug up suddenly, the lights flickering on and off, harmless things but Ballard knew she could be capable of a lot more. She could render Knorr powerless if she wanted to and there was nothing Ballard could do to stop her. But Titanic seemed agreeable for the most part. When she learned about the World Wars she wasn't just astonished, she was horrified. "100 million people, dead?!" She whispered in shock. "Around 40 million and 60 million respectively." Ballard replied. "How could anyone be capable of such a crime?" She whispered. "I don't know." BallA Life Eternal~ Chapter 36 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Lunaria: Genesis 22- DepartingSanies Armum walks ahead of us as we push through the crowd of people in the courtyard of the Academy, well on our way to leave for the week and passing other adults and children from other villages. We walked in a straight line; Sanies in front, then Kyo, Kurren, Amy, and lastly me, marching in a proud line of sorts as everyone stepped aside to let us pass. I can hear them talking amongst themselves, congratulating us for passing so highly or talking about each of us during the exams. Despite that, there is one voice that was louder than the rest, a woman making noise to get someone’s attention. A woman did break through the crowd, waving frantically at us and pulling along a man behind her. She is mid-height, light brown skin and dark pink hair, with large bright green eyes and wearing a plain light yellow dress with nice jewelry as she smiled and threw up her arms.

"They'll be the death of you", he said, finally breaking the silence. I abruptly turned to face him. "What did you say?", I asked in confusion. "They will be the death of you.", the stranger said slowly. I thought about what the stranger said for a few seconds. "Why do you think that?", I asked. "Isn't it obvious?", he asked simply. I watched as my friends played on. I turned back to the stranger and said simply, "So be it." "No", he said, "You don't understand. Your greatest ally will betray you. Your friends will be literally the death of you." I contemplated that for a moment and in reply said, "Somethings are worth dying for." "You're a fool", he said bitterly.

At the least, one might label Theodore Roosevelt as an unqualified hawk. That was most certainly true of the young Theodore who had yet to ever see battle. Some have gone so far as to say that he was bloodthirsty but, that seems a bit unfair. Many point to the day that Mexico entered the war and Roosevelt’s reaction to it. There is no denial that he was enthused by the fact that his front was now active but, does that really denote an absolute thirst for blood? Roosevelt was far from the only man who greeted the news with enthusiasm.
One has to qualify the conditions that these men found themselves saddled with in the southwestern United States. Up till their front became active, the most pressing issue faced by officers and non-com’s alike was a string of absence without leaves. Most of the troops that were stationed on this front were posted within fifty miles of their own homes and the idea of going back to see the wife, sleeping in ones own be

The following morning Tails had gone up to the ARK after Shadow had gone down to get him and Tails still had no idea about the things Shadow found out the night before, Shadow was going to tell Tails about the strange virus Sonic had somehow gotten but he wanted the young fox get some rest first.
Shadow still wanted to know how Sonic got the virus to begin with, if it is contagious, if there even is a cure for it and how much time did Tails really have to find a cure if there is any?
Shadow have thought about those things ever since he had seen that strange virus, normally he wouldn’t care about Sonic at all and he still didn’t if he had to be honest but he did care if that virus were contagious and if there really is no cure for it then the virus could possibly kill thousands of people. Again he didn’t care about that but he knew that if G.U.N. found out about the virus if it spreads Shadow will be used to find a cure for it a

Elizabeth took swift steps to follow, keeping her unease in her mind and not in her footing. Although it was probably helpful that the two were going down the flat path rather than anything requiring more thought.
The two headed on quietly through the night, before coming up to a simple door in the side of one of the tall buildings. He quickly opened it up, heading inside and holding it open for Elizabeth. She let a nod to the lad as she headed inside, going down the stairs that awaited her immediately as she walked in.
The stairs creaked softly under the weight of the two teenagers, but never gave way as they went down. But the darkness was quickly shifted into a cozy warm light, the forthcoming of a room settled ahead. Walking in, Elizabeth took in the details of the small room. It was clearly some sort of workshop, a table with tools and metallic parts of all sorts. A board with designs and notes a

The door creaked open, and the five teenagers slowly walked in.
"You're here to report an incident, I presume?"
"I see. And you are?"
"Oh! I-I'm Fukai Yugure. I just started today with my siblings, Atsui Hyoga and Yuki."
"Hmm...interesting. Very well, let's start."

Chapter 3: A Vision
My equipment lay spread out on the small bed contained within my room. A camcorder with built in night vision, EMF detector and IR thermometer, a torch with spare batteries and various other bits and pieces.
I’d given the hall outside a quick go with the EMF detector on my way to the room, with no results. But my gracious host had told me I was free to roam wherever I pleased on the premises, with three exceptions.
The study on this floor was off limits, as was Pariah’s bedroom and the piano room on the ground floor. I hadn’t questioned it. The man was entitled to his privacy after all.
So it was time to plan a course of action.
I decided to set the camcorder up in the entrance hall and leave it recording overnight. Even though both Mr Ashcroft and Mr Pariah seemed convinced there were no ghosts here, I figured I might pick something up on video.
Besides, there was definitely something going on here. I could feel it.

WHY DO THE WOMEN ALWAYS HAVE TO KNOW?
No matter how much I wanted to hide the fact I was ailing to some degree after my fight with Prince of Wales, a lady always had to see beyond my guise, and it wasn't long before Olympic was giving me heck about it, insisting I was 'unwell', and that I needed 'help'. I brushed off every one of her worries, telling her I was just fine, but I couldn't stay in denial forever when I did indeed begin to lose weight. I had refused a meal more often than not because of the pain in my mouth, and it would eventually show. I was so big, it took awhile, but her eagle eyes were so sharp at detecting it, I'd say she had the superb vision of a warship when sighting their guns.

“That’s not hard to figure out, you’re the only one who ever comes in the forest at all anymore.” He said, studying her as well. “And I see you came prepared.” He nodded at her satchel. He then noticed her knife, which she seemed to have forgotten about. “And there’s that.” He said, flicking his fingers, and suddenly she dropped the blade.
“Ah! It’s hot!” she cried, wringing her hand. She looked at him cautiously. “What did you do?”
He grinned, showing his sharp fangs, and she swallowed nervously. This wasn’t such a good idea, now that I’m thinking about it. No one knows where I am, I could just disappear and no one would ever know what happened to me. She thought. She flinched as he held out his hand.

Sam sat on Leo's couch like it was her own, practically laying across 3 pillows while she explained what she saw.
Leo was nowhere to be seen. Sam was alone in her house, so when we asked her where he went, she said she didn't know. According to her, they were hanging out, and some random people came in, but she got knocked out somehow. Apparently they took Leo with them, wherever they went.
Sarah cleared her throat. "Can you be a little more descriptive? Did you see who it was that took him? We're trying to help you here."
Sam shook her head. "All I know was that it was a guy with two goons. Anyway, what do you two want with Leo? Who even are you?"
I sighed. She clearly won't cooperate unless I introduced us. "I'm Cara and she's Sarah. We're... Old friends of Leo's. We heard he was here and we wanted to say hi to him."

“Good,” Wozniak said activating his own lightsaber “Come at me full force.” From there the dual was on. Junior, the aggressor, swung wildly at Wozniak who just defended it all. Once Junior tired out Master Wozniak went on the offensive with a series of calculated strikes. Each one not designed to kill, but to push Junior’s defenses past their limit. Before the last strike Junior noticed a weak spot in Wozniak’s technique and capitalized, knocking his lightsaber away, positioned himself for the kill strike and said,
“I have beaten you,”
“Indeed you have, now put away your blade,” Was Wozniak’s response. Junior deactivated his lightsaber and Wozniak got back on his feet.
“Well then, let me get something from my home for you,” Master Wozniak then walked into his home and a few minutes later came back out with a lightsaber and something that resembled a remote control.

It was 1993 and twenty-four year old Buck Innay was relaxing to the Who’s “Baba O’Riley” in his ‘87 Celebrity. The rising sun was barely visible through the gray clouds on an early spring morning in the Endless Mountain region of Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania. The strong breeze caused ripples to spread across the puddles scattered throughout the dirt lot. Buck was perched on a hill in the back parking lot of a textile factory finishing his McDonald’s coffee. He sang the words; “Out here in the fields/ I fight for my meals/ I get my back into my living” as he watched a large group of workers chain smoke cigarettes in front of the factory. Looking around the parking lot, Buck counted thirty-seven pick-up trucks and nine cars including his Celebrity.
