A flotilla of swan ships bob in the water. Each ship has twenty oars to a side, and by dipping into the water like wings they propel the fleet forward. The decks are crowded with Goldenburg's citizens. They are seated at the rowing benches in teams of four, with others standing ready to replace them. Priests in white move among the rowers, touching a drooping shoulder or head. Children run from side to side, pointing at the water below.
The lead swan boat sways from side to side. The Count stands at the foremost point, his hand on the swan's neck, his golden cape billowing behind him. Sudo waits at his shoulder. This ship is crewed by Goldenburg's city guards. The brawny men and women grunt and sweat at their oars, no priests in white to give them aid and comfort.
A blanket is spread on the deck in the back of the lead boat. The two orphans are asleep on the blanket, with Tress sitting near their shoulders, her hands placed on their heads. Bell in her gray cloak stands on one side, and

It was a cool Febuary night, a slight breeze running through the streets, no longer covered in snow. Two lone shadows marked the streets making short turns and going into small alleys, not making a noise. They had a clear objective: They did not want to attract attention.
The two shadows were Emma and Alex, better known as members of the Dark Angels. The others had stayed in the headquarters, since Emma had decided that it would be best if few people showed up. Their strategy was based on silence after all.
As they climbed up to the roof of a building near their target they heard over their radios a public emergency announcement. "Attention, the city will be on a 9 pm curfew until the Dark Angels vigilante group is brought to justice. If anyone has information on them bring it to your local police station. And if you see the vigilanties call the police immediately and do not approach them, they are to be considered armed and extremely

Chapter 2: Judgement
Noir awoke to find himself in a white well lit room with tiled floors, walls and ceiling. his first thought was that he was back in the institute but considering the C4 he had just been holding he shot this thought down as wishful thinking
'Oh god I'm not in bloody heaven am I?'
he said aloud because Noir was the sort of man who says things aloud even when they know no-one is there
'Oh goodness no'
a officious and bureaucratic voice replied
'far from it, this is purgatory my dear Noir. We must do some test to see where you are assigned but i will say this'
the voice choked slightly and resumed
'you have to be the most extraordinary client i have ever seen'
'why thank you'
said Noir in an obviously sarcastic tone, he also rather curiously took off his slippers/
'Oh no i am afraid that will not bode well for you'
the tone was not sarcastic enough apparently. Noir rose from the fetal position he had been in and wiped the dribble from the mout
Iron and Fire (Or until I find a better name)With both hands chained up against the wall and being permanently stuck to the wall, Ceto Gawain was not going anywhere. The chains had been rubbing his wrists raw and holding his upper arms above his head. His thighs were chained to a couple of places in the floor. He should have been strong enough to break the chains, but the iron kept him from doing anything. With his head hung, he was trying to recall how he had gotten in such a sticky situation.Iron and Fire (Or until I find a better name)12 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Should have never believed her. How could i have been so stupid? Head hung in shame, Ceto let out a breath, a literal breath of fire. The chains were fireproof, no surprise there. His hair covered his white eyes as the chains burned him a bit more as he tried to shift position. Iron chains on a dragon was weakening, even with his strength and youth. He tried not to move too much as a door opened.
"Well dragon, didn't think you would get soft. Not after so many centuries of your kind getting killed." Ceto said nothing. He listened as

In Lamis's dream world Dirk runs around from blasts of electricity from dark clouds as Lamis stands around on top of a large teddy bear staring at him as he rushes along.
"You can't avoid it, you can't run, and you can't hide, this is my world you know!" Lamis yells out seriously as Dirk hides behind a large teddy bear. "It's almost suicidal to believe you can win against me here."
As Dirk stands around a dark cloud forms above him before shooting out a blast of electricity with Dirk barely dodging out of the way of the attack as he breathes heavily to catch his breath.
"Well compared to dodging Rana's lightning this is child's play." Dirk says as he looks on Lamis seriously. "But this isn't easy either, I have to do something to get over there. But wait,
KrisI’M NOT AS pessimistic as you might think. Getting kicked out of school for the next few days gave me more time to spend with Kris. The minute I walked out the front door of my wretched high school, I made my way to her house. Truth be told, I was a little nervous going to see Kris. I love her, and I love being around her, but she would know. Kris always somehow manages to know things--especially if they aren’t any of her business.Kris3 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
I didn’t like seeing her disappointed in me––I saw that enough in my mother––but I couldn’t stop being the way I was. I remember that night after Kris’ house when I finally went home. I didn’t sleep very well. I never did. I still have nightmares sometimes. It’s better now though with Kris’ help, but I’ll get to that.
I even remember that nightmare––mostly because it was so odd. I was back in that horrible private school with Justin. He was beating on me like he did eve
The Last Peace - PROLOGUEOnly that he was gone. That he was gone forever. He might be back. She couldn’t say anymore than that. A tear trickled down her cheek, as she drove the old Honda Civic back to the house. No one would know. Most likely that he would be killed by the SWAT team or something, once they knew of the group’s intentions. Elizabeth already knew about what happened. The two knew that they had to be ready. Diana had told no one. But if she did, the group was going to be after her. Maybe she even would be hunted for before she even told anyone. To silence her.

There she was, little Allie, with her brother, Jedediah. He wasn’t sad. He was mad. Jedidiah clutched Allie securely to his chest, with one hand on his fist, as he watched the news.

Snowblind: Chapter 1 - Into the Light "Gramma, why did you get dis shtuff?" said the curly-haired girl, looking to a gift bag given to her. "Because, I didn't want you to feel left out on your brother's birthday!", her blonde-haired grandmother replied. The woman looked like your typical grandmother - sweet, hugable, round glasses, poofy hair; only difference was that she dyed it blonde. Looking into the bag, the young girl found herself a picture book and a plushie of the main character - Kipper the Dog. Aaron was ecstatic, as Kipper was one of her favorite cartoons. Rare in both its book and show forms, but endearing, the English-accented puppy and his friends always charmed the four-year-old. "Thank you, Gramma!", the spunky redhead exclaimed as she jumped into a hug with her grandmother.Snowblind: Chapter 1 - Into the Light22 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

TIDESONG: Follow the wind, Chapter 6 Gracy leaned on the stern watching the water ripple behind them. They had cast off three weeks ago and had not seen an island or other ship. Ace had yet to decide on a destination, sending them in ‘that general direction we’ll figure it out in time’. Boredom had set in, and aside from listening to Tosspint’s drunken tails of his past adventures there was nothing to do. She sighed and leaned a little further over the side, trying to see the rudder. A cool wind pulled at her hair as it whipped around her. There was not a cloud in the sky, the clear blue extending endlessly in every direction, broken only by the occasional white tips of the waves. Ace seemed certain that if they kept going along this course, they would find some great treasure. ‘Trust his gut’ he had said ‘It has not failed me once’. Though she suspected he was just hungry when she had asked the plan.TIDESONG: Follow the wind, Chapter 68 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

"It's Tiana. Open up."
"Did ya find him?"
I waved. "You mean me?"
The eyes grew wide. "Holy hell. It really is you!"
The hatch slid shut, and the door opened. A young man beckoned to us. "Come in! Come in."
We entered a small room lit by the yellow glow of a lantern hung from the ceiling. A makeshift bed sat by the wall, and a short corridor led to another door. For the first time in ages, I got a good look at Tiana. She was wearing faded blue pants, a dark gray jacket, and sand-colored shoes, and her brown hair gathered in short curls around her head. Her skin was lighter than I remembered, but not pale enough to indicate sickness.

I pressed my cheeks gently across my forearm, my eyes dancing across the shadows that shimmed to and from beneath the crevice of my bedroom door. I turned round and tried to keep my sobs to myself, my nose sniffling, my body shaking, and shimmering under the pale moonlight. I pulled the thin piece of paper closer to me, my mind racing, I hadn’t anything to say to these poor children, nothing to keep them from weeping in the night, they were growing weary now, the months that passed were growing longer and longer.

I could hear the impulse in his voice.
“Who are you?” I turned about quickly, looking for the creature I’d seen before; of course he was no longer in plan sight. I tensed slightly once I’d felt my arms pulled back tenderly, the creature now behind me, Nikolai’s voice ringing I my head. “What are you doing here?” I was spun around, I looked upwards to meet with an alarmingly gentle face; his form was also a good few inches taller than Nikolai, who was this? We stared at each other for a few moments before he spoke up, his voice soft and somewhat interested, unlike the stale proper being I’d come to enjoy. “A female human? What are you doing so far away from home?” His form
