Moon and the BridgeThe stars, spread across the night’s sky, were brighter than usual tonight. The grass felt soft and welcoming with its light touch; the longer I walked, the more therapeutic it felt. Even when my foot scraped against a rock, it didn’t take away from the building serenity; I only needed a few more steps in the grass to wash the pain completely away.Moon and the Bridge2 days ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The last few nights had been too cold for these walks; and when my only way to relieve stress was from walking, it was nice to be able to do just that. Most would argue that I could’ve worn a coat on the colder nights, but it wasn’t the same without the night’s breeze touching my skin, or without feeling the soft kiss of the grass on my feet. I took in a deep breath, and I could almost taste the stars and the clouds. I felt so close to the sky on nights like this.
I traveled as far as I could on the grass. There was a dirt road up ahead, and further up that road was a bridge. I allowed my feet to saturate

“Well look who’s back,” a voice called from behind the counter. “How are you Maci?” A short girl in a red and purple uniform stood behind the counter grinning at her friend.
“Same old shit Rosie,” Maci smirked. The tall brunette made the over to the counter. “I see you guys haven’t added to the wall,” she said as she pointed to the far wall of the quiet restaurant.
“Oh yeah that. Well after you won twice in a row people kind of lost interest in trying to beat you,” Rosie replied as she nodded at the wall. Maci strolled over from the counter and stood before the wall. The fabled “Kings an

“Thor went back to talk to your dad. He’s going to convince him that you need your powers back full time.” Tony stopped then sighed heavily. There was, of course, one small detail he’d overlooked: Fury. The man would lose his mind if he heard Loki had his powers back. “We’ll have to keep it quiet though.”
He nodded. "Right." He said.
“Rogers stopped by earlier. He wanted to make sure you were doing okay.”
"He cares?" Loki questioned genuinely surprised.
Tony shrugged. “He cares for everybody. When he found out the truth about you, he stopped caring about the attack. He has this annoying habit of liking everybody but me.”
"Well you are a piece of work." Loki stated.
Tony looked at Loki flabbergasted. “Right, cause you’re such a peach.” Tony huffed.

The first feeling that returned to Amanda was one of cold. The chill seeped in through the open places in her clothing, prodding her with icy tendrils. She groaned and tried to clear the cobwebs from her brain. Stiff muscles complained as she called them into action again. Now I know what roadkill feels like.
I can’t believe that bastard ran me off the road! What did I ever do to him? She looked at the steep incline she had fallen down, and felt queasy. I could have broken my neck. She stood carefully, assessing her injuries. Thankfully they were very minor – aside from the stiff muscles, a sore shoulder, and a few minor abrasions, the only other major side effect seemed to be a substantial headache. She realized her hands were shaking, and with some effort forced them to lie still against her sides. Shake it off, Amanda. You’re okay. Time to get g

Somehow he had fallen asleep in the soft bed but he didn't get to rest for very long. He was woken up by something tugging on his foot and suddenly he jerked awake. The first thing he noticed was that the covers had been pulled of him and he was now naked, the second thing was that Kota was sitting on his leg, doing something to his foot. His purple tail was flicking this way and that and his ears were perked and alert, like he was very focused.
“What the hell are you doing?!” Mika snapped, making Kota jump.
“Yey! You're up!” Kota beamed.
Mika glared at him and pulled the covers over him self, blushing.
“What were you doing?!” He snapped.
“Dressing you!” Kota smiled, like it was the most natural thing in the world.
“What the hell? Don't do that! I can dress myself!” Mika exclaimed
“No, you're sick.” Kota said slowly as if talking to a child and and Mika bristled.
“No, I'm hurt.
I Want To Go Outside! SnkXMale Reader! Beginning Outside... I wonder what it looks like... You sat alone in your room as always, waiting for someone to bring you a small meal so to keep you alive. Not that it matters though You thought wryly. You'd never seen the outside world, parents always speaking of the fact that you're so sick that the sunlight wouldn't be good for you and the night was too cold for you to handle. With a sigh, you walked over to open the door upon hearing the knock. A butler stands before you, a smile on his face as he holds the tray to you wordlessly. You give a small bow before taking it and closing the door, moving back to where you were sitting on the floor with the collection of knives you had received over the years.

Dragon Paws aka Violet was kinda taken back by Mikaela's 'outburst'. "What? Didn't you hear what those Eerie Creatures talking about that when they call you the Summoner of Felidae Dragons?" Violet said as if she thought Mikaela should know that.
Mikaela stood up, glaring at the cat-dragon, "No! And it's because I was too frighten with those smokey...things!"
Violet took a moment to think then responds, "Oh yeah..." She quietly chuckled. "My bad."
Mikaela rolls her eyes at Violet then said, "Now then... You just mention that you have siblings, right?"
Violet just responded by nodding 'yes'.

Hannah knelt in the snow beside the woodland stream, heavy metals test kit open on the ground beside her. With deftness born of practice, she poured the trial solution into a test tube, then capped and shook it. After the solution had turned green, showing the reagents had activated, she uncorked the tube and used a pipette to add a precise amount of the stream’s water to the solution. She recapped the tube and shook it vigorously, then turned it upside down and peered at the contents.
She hummed a few bars of “The Minstrel Boy” as she waited. After a minute had passed, the test result ring inside the tube began to change color, from green to a rusty pink.
“Bingo,” she said to no one in particular, and began scribbling results in her notebook. The concentration of lead in this part of the Cawdor Burn was higher than anywhere else she had tested – yet just a hundred yards upstream, there was hardly any lead in the water a

The young and newly commissioned submarine Nautilus was beginning the first ever voyage of a nuclear submarine. Sailing silently under the polar ice pack, she was looking forward to accomplishing what so many have failed to do. Completing a sucessful passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Her keen eyes relied on her infrared and ultraviolet vision to guide her through the water. Navigation became more and more useless the closer they got to the pole. Her compass was all screwed up but that didn't stop her.
Up ahead she could see a shape appearing, its orange and red heat signature a great contrast to the blues and blacks of the wa

The wind howled in the arcanine's ears as she slugged across the desert. The sandstorm had been relentlessly filling her throat with grit. The weight of her injured master and the intensity of the pelting sand made every step through the dunes a struggle. Squinting to keep the dirt out of her eyes, Miriam could vaguely see a wall of rock ahead of her. She searched along it for something, anything, that could hide her and the injured Ackerman from the cruel winds. After timeless trudging along the sheer rock, she gratefully stumbled into a shallow cave, where the sand was whirling about with much less fervor.
Rasping from dehydration and a raw throat, she growled, “Who does that whelp think he is! NO ONE is allowed to touch Master!” Her expression changed to that of concern as she put down her passenger, “Poor Acky, I'll take good care of you. No one

Winter, 1 TA
All things considered, the day could have gone a lot worse.
Anárië groaned as she finally passed from under the endlessly-falling snow and into one of the large hallways of the Last Homely House. All around her were similar sounds, coming from under hoods and caps.
Earlier that day, just after the morning meal to be exact, one of the sentries up in the high tower had reported that something had been seen, in a sort of a signal, up east. Considering the fact that he couldn’t give them much more than the ‘wink of what looked like flame on metal’, no one really gave it much thought, and it was decided that it couldn’t honestly be any kind of threat, what with the snow falling as it was, and the passes being completely closed.
They had pretty much forgotten all about the warning – for warning it had been, as they would later look back on the situation and reflect

@TotallyStraight69 - Okay, I’ve been thinking about your problem and I have a theory, but first a quick question. Which finger did you draw blood from for the spell?
@AlphaKing87- I used my thumb, like the book said!
@TotallyStraight69 - Actually, the book says to use your index finger. So I feel pretty confident when I say that your demon’s sickness had probably stemmed from two things. First, the improper summoning. This also probably accounts for his red eyes. Second, he’s a sex demon. You haven’t been giving him any sex. Or any kind of romantic interactions at all based on your previous posts.
@AlphaKing87 – What does that have to do with anything?!
@TotallyStraight69 – Well, I know that if I don’t give Gloria any sex for a while she gets a bit funny. Lethargic would probably be the best way to describe it.

It was a lot more comforting to see how the conversation had mellowed out and relaxed as the Doctor had continued to talk, how the mood did ultimately lift at the end of it. When it all finally came to a close, Tyr sat in silence, though he smiled.
"Yea, ya sure did... Tha' was really brave 'f ya, what ya did to' day Atlas went wild." He just had to say that. "I mean, t' jus' jump int' all th' action after jus' showin' up... Jus' amazin'." Heroic, even. He wasn't the only one, he was sure, but still.
The Doctor wasn't sure what sort of reaction he was looking for from the nidoran, but he was pleasantly surprised by what he saw. The boy's eyes shone with respect and admiration as he heard about the Doctor's first adventure in Andalusst. Even as the furret moved on to speak of other things, the light in Tyr's eyes didn't change. The older mon smiled and shrugged.

After a long decent work day with the regular customers and the occasional travelers it was around 9pm. All the patrons and other workers had already left, Moe was just finishing wiping down the bar countertop, with a wash cloth, when he heard the main door open.
"Sir we will be closing soon the Cantina," Moe said aloud not bothering to look at the customer.
"You don't need to worry about that!" Came a chuckle by dark voice as the shadow of a tall horned figured cast over him.
Moe quickly turned around and gasped in shock. The shadow's caster was a very tall black/grey armored robot, holding a deadly looking spear in his hand as he glared down at him with crimson optics that gleamed a black helmet with horns attached to it.
"What do you want here, Romulus?! I demand you leave immediately!" Moe shouted trying to keep the fear out of his voice, as he instantly recognized the criminal from a wanted poster he

Despite the music playing in my ears, I couldn’t help but wince as the bus screeched to a stop at the corner of my subdivision. I stood up quickly, but unfortunately, since I was at the back of the bus, it took me a while to get off. When I climbed down the steps, my friend was waiting for me.
“Sorry I didn’t save you a seat,” she said quickly. “You know I don’t like saying no when someone asks me to sit there.”
I gave her a sideways grin. “It’s fine. I don’t mind having to sit in the back.” Then my grin faded. “Besides, that was nothing compared to the rest of my day.”
“Ya know how I told you about my parents’ d-d-divorce and everything?” I began hesitantly, barely able to say what I usually referred to as “the d-word”.

Gill crawled on his hands and knees on the floor of the office area, his hands grabbing for fallen papers and trying to quickly gather them all to him. He’d have to put them all back in order again later, but first he just needed to stop them from being stepped on. Gill’s expression was one of hatred as an employee purposefully walked over the dropped papers, leaving Gill with another stack of paper so “cleverly” branded with footprints that he would have to explain to Cyril.
The bullying was starting to get out of hand. Cyril knew Gill was upset about what the others thought of him, but Cyril wasn’t aware of the increasing physical threat of the other interns and even the downright maliciousness of the employees themselves. This was the fourth time this week that he’d been intentionally “bumped” into so that he dropped whatever he was carrying.
