Chapter 2 – New arrivals
<<It was then, that we saw our old home for the last time. It was already dark outside, normally I wouldn’t go outside when it’s dark. I’m quite scared of it, luckily a crescent moon lit upon us, scaring the darkness away. The three of us were already inside of the car. It was pretty cold, both Yui and Rin hugged tight against me in order to keep warm. Their warmth made me feel relaxed. Earlier they gave the suitcase to Mother, I wonder what was inside… But it doesn't matter anymore, does it? When I looked out of the window, the orphanage was already gone, we drove out the street, out of sight, away from home…
I guess a new life is about to start…>>

Theodore 2: TV is the Sheperd! (Part 9)In the chaos of the convention and with so many pictures being taken, you might miss one more camera. But what made this one different is that it was being manned by the cameraman for Jack Smiley, a local television news reporter. Jack was a smiling, happy fellow who was great with an interview. But that was how the public knew him. A select few knew him from the fetish/BDSM scene. There, Jack Smiley became 'Master Dark', a dominant who had picked up a bad reputation.Theodore 2: TV is the Sheperd! (Part 9)4 days ago in Introductions & Chapters
The few who had played with him had discovered that Master Dark had no respect for limits, forcing people to do things they explicitly didn't want to do. He was so selfish, the only thing Jack cared about was what he found thrilling and thus he would not properly respect safe words, a huge betrayal and completely unacceptable. For example, after gaining his trust, a young submissive had confided in Master Dark that he was terrified of drowning and being underwater. Jack had talked

Stalin: The Rapier, and fashion. I really don't know what else to say here. These two fair haired, caucasian anime characters are both known for their swordsmanship with the rapier, along with their impeccable sense of fashion.
Marx: Like Esdeath, the Ice Queen.
Stalin: And Polnareff, the comic relief of Stardust Crusaders.
Marx: We will be looking at these two opponents to see who will win in a Death Battle.
Update: Due to some personal shit, I really could not bring myself to do commentary. I was just a bit discouraged, and I'd rather not elaborate. Just know that I'm fine, but I have no urge to want to do commentary this fight. Just know that Polnareff joined Stardust Crusaders to avenge his sisters death, and killed Vanilla Ice and his sister's murderer, while Esdeath is a brutal general who survived an assault on her people, and became a general in the Imperial Army.

“How did you get in here?” Falcon demanded, and to everyone’s surprise was echoed by Eshka.
“I have my ways traitor,” the new dridder smirked.
“It has not been long enough Nashta,” Eshka snarled. “Our god is returning, and you and your false queen will soon be the past.”
“Not if I have anything to say about it!” Nashta leapt into the air towards her fellow dridder. Eshka pulled a sword from her back, and blade and polearm met with a clang. The two began trading blows almost faster than the eyes of the shocked Miratans and naga could follow. Both spun strands of webbing and launched themselves up into the stalactites dotting the ceiling.
“I did NOT see this coming,” Rin said before shooting an ice blast at Kiki, catching the surprised fairy in the side. “But I’ll take what I can get.”
“She doesn’t remember you going for cheap shots little snake,

The sight of seeing Nathalie akumatised overwhelmed Chat; he stood there in plain shock with his jaw dropped. Ladybug raised an eyebrow, confused as to why Chat was behaving like this all of a sudden. Her curiosity was beginning to get the best of her, so she managed to fend off Nathalie long enough for her to ask what was going on in an alleyway.
"Chat, what's going on? Why didn't you do or say anything?" She asked in a caring tone, worried for her partner.
Chat breathed heavily as he looked down in the distance, seeing Nathalie in an akumatised form that almost made her unrecognisable, yet the strong bond he shared between his mother made the differences seem invisible in his eyes. "If I tell you...you might figure out who I am..." He warned, his eyes filled with worry and seriousness.
She gasped silently, realising that her curiosity had reached far beyond her limits, she couldn't ask why. But at the same time Ladybug wanted to know why so she could hel

It was such a familiar scent, yet not one to ever stand so strongly in the Circus.
The Gate Keeper's throat tightened, even while the air was still clear. It was as if his mind was preparing for something to come, but he couldn't figure what it is.
He looked around and soon enough spotted a towering pillar of smoke over the tips of the tents in the horizon.
The Gate Keeper doubted something of that scale could've happen by sheer chance. Whoever did that, they were clearly smart enough to not start a fire around Clown Fish's territory, or it'll be doused out in an instant.
That, or they were very lucky...
As he stood and gazed in awe at the thick cloud of ashes, he was suddenly overcome by a strong, debilitating flash of heat that was weighing on him, making breathing nearly impossible, almost like he was burning from the inside or being sucked into a furnace.
Battling the flashing heatwave threatening to consume him, the Gate Keeper heard a voice right ne
Training DrillSebastian stood in the middle of the training field, watching his sparring partner size him up. Ezria, if he remembered correctly. She seemed capable. He was really starting to wonder why he signed up for the military in the first place. He really did not look forward to the next- however long this was going to take. He had a feeling it wouldn’t be too long though.Training Drill3 days ago in Introductions & Chapters
“You just going to stand there?” Ezria asked, interrupting his thoughts.
“If that means I won’t get punched in the face… Yeah.” He sighed. Nevertheless, he got into the fighting stance that he sort of had copied from other people. She didn’t seem really pleased with his response though.
"This is training. But you and I need to be ready either way. You might face an Alchemist and I might and will be going against soldiers."
Yes, he knew that. She didn’t have to lecture him on that. He actually had to face an alchemist right now. A freaking alchemist. He vaguely regis

“Grace! Over here!”
Grace smiled as she saw Maggie waving from a table in a back corner, and walked through the bar to join her there.
“Now this is the sort of place I know you’re at home in,” she said as she kissed Maggie on both cheeks before sitting down. “How are you?”
“Exhausted if truth be told. I’ve been in Central Office all morning, and I needed a break. What will it be?”
“A large – very large – white wine.”
“Bring us a bottle of chardonnay and two glasses,” Maggie said to the barmaid, who nodded as she turned to look at Grace. “So, how’s it going?”
“So far so good – just tonight to get through now, and then a local event tomorrow night I said I’d help out with when i arrived.”
“Want to swap places?”

Dusk’s ears perked up and he knew that I wanted him to stay quiet when I removed my paws from his ears and did not speak a word and so he too remained silent in response. I was glad for his cooperation as I laid there with my ears keen upon any sound or movement
“Pappa, I’m, I’m scared. Mamma told me to...” ‘MOTHER?! WHAT MOTHER!?’ My thoughts screamed and I hissed a quiet growl at my brother and he quivered in response. I did not want to be sharp with him, especially now that he could speak but, now was not the time for words. I slowly lifted myself, thoughts of the female downstairs filling my thoughts. That’s all I could think of ever since Rodon’s loud footsteps trampled up the stairs and into his room, but I couldn’t go and see her, not immediately. So I laid still till I heard relaxed breathing outside the door and felt that the other wolves outside were asleep. I looked to my little brother.

Hell Creek, Page 1The little raptor took the scents in from inside her eggshell.Hell Creek, Page 13 days ago in Introductions & Chapters
Up to then, the pores in her shell had been the only connection to the outside world. She could breathe, and smell many things, but now, having outgrown the egg, it was time to leave. Pushing outward with her head, the embryo forced her egg tooth through the shell, managing to crack it. The crack expanded and multiplied slowly, until it split the top of the egg into several parts, which fell off. Now free to move the neck and head, the embryo twisted them a little to get rid of the remnants of yolk that stuck to her down.
Once she was freed, a smell she recognized from before immediately became stronger. A wild, fierce one, yet somehow calming. An unknown creature nudged her snout, and she startled at the feeling of something much bigger and more powerful than her. But the big creature was gentle, and it was from it which the fierce-calming scent came. In fact, it smelled like the little one herself. It encouraged her out o

Kindred Hospital, New Orleans;
Sighing, Dante sat in the comfortable chair besides his grandmother’s bed, watching all the machines monitor the older woman’s vital signs. From what the doctors have said, there was no real sign of improvement, yet…but at least she’s not any worse. That was a good sign. The fact that she was not deteriorating gave them hope that she would get better.
That was the best news the young man had heard in a long time. He sighed again and sat back, thinking about how close they were to being defeated by Samedi and Shapona. Was it just luck that they made it? What if another battle came? Would they have the strength, the will to fight again? Dante certainly hoped so. When the gods assured them that it would be unlikely Samedi or Shapona would return, he was relieved beyond anything.
But then there was a nagging feeling in the back of his head. What if all of this wasn’t over? What if the

where everything could go wrong?”
If Viv had to categorize and explain her educational life, it would be broken into three groups: fun days, transitional days, and the unknown.
Primary school was a place that occupied pretty much most of one’s growing years. You forge fast friendships only to know that they’ll rust and break away once you and your “friend” are in different classes. You stay with the same group of people for an entire year before mixing yourself into a new group the next. You see the world with an innocent lens until hurtful words and puberty sets in later down the road.
Middle school had its ups and downs. Sometimes, you would have really good days while most of the time, you’re counting the days away until summer comes. A

"I still can't believe I have to tell you all so soon," Jack presses against the open space in between his, Pearl's and Amethyst's stones. He turns the stones till the three black stones face up and glows. A sun-shaped hole shows up at the center and Sunstone presses her mace inside the hole. Jack press his finger against the mace then makes a black bolt appear with his power. The bolt flashes black and white as a white diamond outline appears on the door as it opens.
Garnet places a hand on Jack's shoulder, "You know you don't have to."
"Garnet, you always gave wise words to the one who helped you find balance and harmony within yourself," Jack places a hand on her's, "But you and I both know that this is unavoidable and that everyone has the right to know."
"And I can't wait to watch as everyone hates you," Nightshade pushes Jack inside. Everyone follows behind as they all enter a courtyard

You accepted the beegirl's offer to become a part of her kingdom. It was the author, who answered to your decision.
“Great. Have fun with that. But then to you, your majesty. Since you are a queen, you should have the control over your new citizen. And so I give this control to you. You are now able to control the citizen's body with your will, the emotions with your pheromones and the size of the citizen also with your will. However, your new citizen can't be bigger than his current size. And last but not least, you and your citizen can now talk via telepathy. So, that is all. Until next time!”
The author's voice disappeared. The beegirl was now looking at you.
“So, I welcome you into my kingdom. I am your queen, my word is law. My name is Regina, Queen Regina for you. As for you, of course you need a new name for your new life. From now on your name is Rone. And of course you will have to work for me. However, normal work for normal bees is not really fitt

“Sometimes I wonder why I keep a personal journal, or blog. It seems childish to me, to keep such a thing when most of my life is spent behind a camera. I already document so much of myself, why do I need to keep a written log too? Even now, in this run down hell hole of an asylum, I’m still writing. It was pretty touch and go those first few days. I was afraid I’d lost myself, and that I wouldn’t be able to find me again. But I think I did. Behind the blood and gore and new instincts and annoying brain roommate, I found Miles Upshur. Turns out, the guy never left, just got a bit pointy. Maybe I write so that I know I’m still me, that I’m still here. After everything, I’m still the same guy. If I didn’t write I don’t know if I could still be me. I’ve been doing this since I could hold a pencil. First it was just wavy lines on paper, imitations of w
Sumo Ranger BlackSumo Ranger Black1 day ago in Introductions & Chapters
Contrary to what modern mortals may have thought on the matter, it was indeed possible for a goddess (or a great spirit if one wanted to argue semantics) to want more out of existence than whatever domain they happened to control.
For instance, Yokozuna had often wished over the past decades that she had some control over the dominion of time. With power over time itself, she could simply go back and prevent her younger sister’s fall to darkness and wickedness.
At least, that had been her daydreams for decades now. Instead she was the Kami of a sport that was, to borrow a mortal phrase, growing long in the tooth with the past century’s worth of corruption and scandals rocking its foundation and reputation.
Oh, she had power to be sure. But with each new addition to her stable of sumo solders, her power would diminish with each one. And when the fifth and last Ranger was chosen she would be a shell of her former self, power wise at least.

I looked at Lewis in shock. "Are you serious?" I exclaimed aloud.
Lewis put a finger up to his mouth to give me the "shush" gesture. "Yeah, and be quiet. There are some PRT members just down that hall. That's where I heard the info." He said while pointing down the hall next to us.
I looked down the hall and saw a Blastoise and a Charizard talking to each other.
"That's gotta be my dad..." I thought to myself while looking at the Charizard. As I was looking, he turned his head towards me.
"Keaton? What are you doing out of you're room?" He called down the hall. I recognized the voice. Sure enough, it was my dad's voice.
I gave him a blank look before trying to answer. "I...uh...I don't know..." I began to approach him.
"Typical answer." He muttered. "Follow me, you probably have a lot of questions."
I followed him down the hall into a large room filled with other PRT members talking to one another.

We are treated with a white background showing two logos, one for *insert publisher here* and the other for *insert developer here* for 7 seconds. The logos fade out and then fades in the Unreal Engine logo that is displayed until 7 seconds later and then vanishes.
We cut to the panoramic view of Earth rotating for ten seconds before it zooms out to a certain part of the world. The narrator (voiced by Richard Epcar) says "Decades ago, a fighting ceremony where the music and the martial arts combine, is celebrated worldwide." Then we cut to a desert where we see Don Z and Ken Lee, the latter is a middle aged chinese-american bald man with a long beard wearing an archetypal martial arts master attire. They fought each other in a coreographed fight as the narrator continues "For twelve tournaments, Ken Lee was the supreme Rhythmic Martial Arts Champion in history, that is until his friend and rival Don Z, defeated him out of rage and he's no longer heard of altogether." and Don Z punches

"What brings you here today, Danny?" A young man who would only give the name Danny to identify himself, sat before me with a very pensive look upon his face. His outfit is rumpled, hair shaggy, and his class ring announced he had graduated high school just a few short years before. I placed him at college age, probably in his third year or so. Dark bags filled under his eyes, and a nervous tic made his left eyelid twitch as if by some unknown source tugging at it. I figure due to the time of year, exams are just around the corner. Its not unusual for frat boys and sorority girls with more money than brains to seek an alternative way to survive the grading curve and make it another semester.
"I need to be smarter. So smart, that no test will stump me. I want all the knowledge there is to have. Can you grant me that wis

Stanley grimaced and sighed. “Everyone and their brother,” he said with a resigned tone. “You do understand your chances of success, right?”
“Well, yeah,” Reese replied, patting Gideon’s mane. “But I have zero chances of taming one of them if I don’t try. I’ll only be gone four a couple of days at a time, and I’ll take Gideon with me. We’ll be fine, Dad.”
“That’s not what I’m worried about. Tokotas, you can handle. People, on the other hand… people get competetive.”
