No había ido allí para despedirse, ni para llorar por nadie. Su visita era para comunicarle algo muy importante a alguien que ya no le escucharía… pero nunca lo había hecho así que no había tanta diferencia.
Marisol Gavilán, su madre, llevaba ocho meses enterrada allí, junto al hijo que nunca tuvo la oportunidad de ver el mundo; ocho meses que habían bastado para transformar a su padre en un animal y destrozar el alma de Victoria. Pero no importaba la cantidad de pedazos en la que se hubiera roto su alma, el mundo no iba a esperar a que la recompusiera.
Las lápidas, blancas como el marfil, parecían hechas de ese mismo material a la luz del sol de la mañana. Antonio Abril se había gastado u

"Wedding Ship Attack"
As the Royal family of Denmark sat down for dinner that evening, the memories of Queen Athena were still fresh on everyone's mind. Although neither Melody nor Eric never knew nor met Ariel's mother, they knew how tough it was for her. Ariel was feeling a lot more quiet than usual at the dinner table and it took notice of her husband and daughter.
"Ariel, you're a lot more quiet than usual," remarked Eric. "I know its tough to remember your mother, but you can't let it get you down."
"Indeed," added Eric's manservant, Grimsby. "You are a ruler of this great country and your subjects cannot see you in this kind of grief. What example will that send?"
Ariel said nothing and instead ate her plate of food that sat before her. Melody was very worried about her mother and wanted to try and help her in any way, but she didn't know how.
In fact, the young princess of Denmark was just about to say something when the doors of the dining hall burst wide open. A youn

He was floating, deep in a pool of cool turquoise water. Peaceful, so very quiet, soothing. He could feel the water flowing over his bare skin, caressing him, protecting him, and from way down deep, he heard their voices.
It was muffled, as if he had cotton in his ears, and he wanted to sleep but their voices were waking him up, gently, his mind swimming into consciousness.
His...memories, were trying to piece themselves together but it was like looking at a slideshow where someone had scrambled all the pictures. Young men, young women; sometimes smiling at him, sometimes angry, sometimes so afraid. He wanted to help them but... he didn't know who they were, as if he was looking at snapshots of someone else's life. Something had happened, something horrible, but he didn't...know what it was or what part he had played in it.
Nothing felt familiar and it frightened him a little, enough that he wanted to awaken, wante

<CybeastFalzar2280> Colombo was standing against the mast of the ship, as per usual. It was a nice, quiet day; the sun was shining, and a few clouds dotted the sky. The Ursaring was getting used to life on Revolution without Daisy, but he still missed her. He just hoped that Roger would take good care of her for him. Colombo took out his clarinet and began to play it. It was his way of letting off steam, and he always played it either by himself or out on the deck for the crew to hear. They never seemed to mind it, so he kept playing.

Five years spent drifting between islands and then another year as a 'guest' to a bunch of tribal people... yeah not a life he'd enjoyed but it taught him well enough.

Kai looked up into the sapphire blue sky where Kelsa was flying. Kelsa was Kai's and Claw' older sister who had fledged moments ago. Kai then saw his mum returning from hunting. She carried a finch in her talons.
Claw pushed Kai over, and as their mum landed on the edge of the nest he grabbed it off her.
"Hey, Claw, that's for you and your younger brother!" Breeze told the little American Kestrel chick.
Claw then looked up from eating. He moaned, "Why?"
She sighed, "Because Kai needs to eat too."
He then said, "Fine." The chick ripped the finch in half and gave the smallest half to his brother.
They ate the tender meat quickly, and after they had finished, Kai had a question on his min

From the desk of Project Ho-oh, Agent Emerald. aka, Chrisstiger.
As you may know, I had recently completed the Randomiser Nuzlocke Challenge for Pokemon Emerald.
Resulting in several pictures and a long winded journey through Hoenn with random coloured Pokemon.
The higher ups were impressed with the work I did and asked if I was willing to try out the Ho-oh Project.
I can't give out too much info about it, but Project Ho-oh is similar to the Challenge I did before, however, the Pokemon who I capture will have their name and appearance chosen for me.
The data provided will be based on my memories of people I know, making the journey more personal.
The name of the project is loosely based on the Legendary Dog Trio theory.
The theory goes like this, there used to be two towers in Johto, these were the homes of Lugia and Ho-oh, but many years ago, one of the towers burned down.
It is believed that a trio of Pokemon perished in that tower, Flareon, Jolteon, and Vaporeon.

As Deeth put his feet on the floor, his accidentally stepped on something. He winced and pulled his foot back up. Looking down, he saw that he had stepped on the black egg from the package.
"Huh, I guess it rolled off." He picked up the egg to place it on a bookshelf. As he approached, he stepped on a crumpled piece of paper. It was the wadded up scroll. Deeth rolled his eyes. "Stupid junk mail."
Deeth took another shower and changed into a blue shirt, black trousers and leather boots. He put his usual effects in his pockets and walked towards the door. He stopped at the knob, glancing back at the brown package and black egg. "That thing's pretty big. Almost looks like a dragon egg..." Deeth rolled his eyes. "Nah. Ther

Undisclosed research facility, United States.
“She’s coming out of cryostasis now, sir.” Agent Clayton stood close by as the blonde teen lay on the table, thawing out. “She should be ready for the experiment soon.”
Clayton was a massive, towering brute of a man, weighing roughly 300 pounds and stood at a frightening height of six feet six inches. He wore a jet black suit and white shirt with an equally dark tie to match. His hands were folded behind his back and a slight menacing smile crept up along his mouth.
“Excellent” a voice from the darkness called. “Prep the tubes now, Clayton.”
The blonde girl was a complete contrast to Clayton; she was short, thin, and weak. A bump on her head was present, caused by the brutality of Clayton’s strike with his fist a day prior.
Two scientists in green robes carefully carted the table into a chamber across the room, lifted the girl off it and belte

The Crystal Gems went near the crash site with the kids following behind. Everyone ducked near some rocks before something would happen.
"What could it be?" Steven asked.
"It could be another Homeworld Gem," Pearl said, "Peridot must have called for reinforcements."
"If she did, there would've been more of those crashes," Garnet replied.
"So, what should we do with it? Bust it up? Crush it into space dust? Or should we just throw it into the ocean and see if it hits Lapis and Jasper?" Amethyst kept asking.
"Um, guys? I know I'm new to this whole Gem thing, but should it be moving?" Connie looked at the crystal.
"Moving?" Garnet saw the crystal shaking.
Pearl got in front of Steven and Connie, "Steven, Connie, stay here."

When I finally got up Axel was waiting for me. "About time!"

Jumping out the window, Aiel struggled at first with the weight of his brother on his arms, then the heat from the house created an updraft and he found it easier to hold his brother. The two glided in circles while Jules joined them.
"Jules.” Aiel said, getting his younger brother's attention, "Go to the woods behind the house, Dee and I'll be there in a bit."
"W-what? No!" The youngest brother exclaimed, gliding in sync with his eldest sibling.
"Go. We'll join ya in a bit!"
The two brothers looked at each other in the eyes, then Jules broke contact and flew off towards the woods behind the house, carrying Faye in his arms.
Aiel used the last of the air under his wings to glide into the center of the crowd where their parents had been not two minutes previously.
"Monster!" A voice shouted, and Aiel let go of his brother and looked the man in the eye.

After leaving the apartment and heading back to my own, (Well I share one with Honor) I set my skateboard down by the door and sat on my bed, looking out the window and over the town. I could see people walking down the streets, entering stores and other buildings.
There was one girl that caught my eye. Her visage wasn’t visible, but her long, wispy curls the color of a raven’s wing floated in the wind hazily. My eyes sort of latched onto her unconsciously, but as quickly as she appeared, the girl was gone. Shaking my head in bewilderment, I ripped my gaze from the window to the door.

Sitting in the small family room, Lin and I look at all the rules we have to follow on the white board. The room had a small television set but it was hardly ever used. A few white colored bookcases against the beige wall that always had the image that they were full, but they never were. A new story always filled the empty slots of non-existent hardcover book spines. Two leather couches were separated by a mocha brown coffee table.
Lin and I sat beside each other while Gina sat across from us.
I had a small notebook out and mine was already filled with notes.
“Do you get all the traditions you have to follow in order to make the family proud?” Gina asked.
“I guess so…”
I wasn’t sure about all the rules but, I just wanted this to be over. This speech seemed to be last for a whole eternity and, I was bored ten minutes into the speech.

Chapter 2I stretch again, clearing my mind, as I walk out the French doors on to the attached private balcony. The cloud like carpet changes to warm stone as my feet cross the threshold. The clean harsh Florida sun baths my skin. Heaven! My eyes are drawn skywards where they follow a solitary seagull as it soars traversing the luminous blue sky. It path takes it out over the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The Gull shrinks into the horizon until I lose track of him. My gaze drifts down to the choppy rolling wave of the gulf. I follow a wave as it’s grows shifting to smooth glass. It peaks then turns to turbulent rolling white foam and flattens and fades into the shore. The sloped shore turns to smooth rolling sand dunes of compiled fine, radiantly white, clean, fine sand. I smile as I think about how it squeaks as it presses against my bare feet as I walk across it.Chapter 218 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Her arms are filled with packages of Cup o’ Noodles. I pull the microwave down from the cupboard above the refrigerator.
I move to sit at the dining room table as she microwaves her food. As she comes to sit next to me I notice that she is holding all six freshly microwaved cups against her bare skin.
“Doesn’t that hurt?” I ask, carefully taking them away from her and setting them on the table.
“Other things hurt more.” There is a silence, then she jumps up, “Hey, do you have chopsticks?”
I go and grab her some. She eats without restraint or control and when she finishes she lays her head down on the table.

Stepping out of the shower, I wrapped a white towel around myself and stared in the mirror. My hair was now a brown burgundy, the color I had died it before the red. Most of my mascara had made its way off of my face, however I still used a small face towel to get the rest of it off.
It wasn’t often that I saw myself without makeup on. I lifted a hand to my face. Without the mask of foundation to cover my freckles, I looked like I was much younger than I was. Quickly I looked away, hands shaking. I hated mirrors. They were fickle and honest at the same time.
I picked up my clothes and walked out of the bathroom, putting my hair up in a clip as I went. Honor and Alexis were sitting on the couch, snickering at some funny thing that happened on 'The Big Bang Theory', the show they were watching.
Honor gasped as her eyes traveled over to me. Alexis couldn’t have been less attentive to me

He breathed a sigh of relief and pushed the door open the whole way... only for something to CLANK against the other side. Deeth ran outside and slammed the door closed. Sure enough, the black egg was rolling around on the other side.
He picked it up and shook it around. "How. Does. This. Keep. HAPPENING?!"

Deeth happily put on his work uniform and went to the kitchen for breakfast. "I think this calls for a bowl of chocolate-covered sugar chunks!"
As Deeth ate his bowl of cereal, he kept leaning over the table to peer into the living room at the bookshelf. Dardarax's words repeated in his mind over and over.
