Seawater glistened against the sun-kissed chest of a well-toned man. It slid past his rib cage and ran across a mile-wide scar, etched into the banded print of a golden fish tail. His dorsal fin, adorn with tears and glittering fisher hooks, hung against his face, half-bent due to the enclosing nature of the net he currently found himself tangled in.
Even so, Penny had a perfect view of the dawn breaking over the ocean line. The sun had just begun clambering upward, coloring the sky a rosy tint while bathing the ocean below in a wave of twinkling lights. A salty sea breeze whistled along the molding, tied up ropes, chorusing beside off-key gulls and sloshing waves pushing against the stern of the fishing vessel.
And surrounding him, a whole school of silvery tuna wetly, and obnoxiously, slapped about.
"Ey ey ey, quit yah floppin, yah wicked frylins! Dis tail's sensitive, yeah?" Penny’s pupils slitted further as

So the first race of the season has finally arrived and what a shock we have already had so far this weekend. During Free Practice 1 (FP1) and Free Practice 2 (FP2) it looked like Mercedes were to be the pace setters this weekend but that changed during FP3 when the Neon cars went faster by 0.5 seconds over Hamilton in 3rd and 2.16 seconds ahead of Rosberg in 4th. Drama occurred during FP1 when Daniel Riccardo put his RB10 into the wall when he lost the rear end of the car coming out of turn 5 while James locked up both of his front brakes on his Pirelli and crashed into the back of Alonso’s Ferrari taking both cars out for the remainder of the session. In FP2 Button had a brake issue that wasn’t resolved until after the session while both James and Alonso’s cars were repaired and managed to get out for one lap which put James 16th and Alonso 7th. FP3 was when the shock came around when Milen went fastest ahead of Hamilton and then his teammate Matthias when fas

it pains me to see you in your current state. You once stood so tall, everyone feared and respected you. All you did was fight to live and you lived. You fought until your rage was no longer enough to keep you going, until you fell, exhausted by the long war. You reached your goal but they beat you, they beat and tortured you. They put you to shame, made you swallow your pride and kept you away from ever feeling proud of your name, of your whole self. It hurts to see that they have broken you. That even after seventy years you're willing to have your hands tied behind your back by others who have done things much worse than you've ever done in your life. It brings tears to my eyes that you think they are right. They are not. You've done what anyone else would have done. You're so pathetic. You let them humiliate and blackmail you even today without a word of protest. I'm truly disappointed in you. Please come to your senses and pull yourself together. Europe needs you.

It was a bright Monday morning and (full name) was going into his first year of highscool in Ouran. He jogged down the hallways trying to find his first class which was math. As he was jogging by he kept continually asking people what classroom math was in. Finally a pair of orange-haired,hazel-eyed twin boys stopped to help him.
"I'm Hikaru,"said the one on the left.
"And I'm Kaoru," said the one on the right who had a slightly higher voice.

“This is nice.” He whispered as she leaned against his shoulder. “Just taking a break, not worrying about anything for once. I could get used to it.”
She laughed. “Better not. Eventually, we have to go back to our lives. We have way too much responsibility to just disappear like this all the time.”
“I know.” He sighed. They continued to simply sit, watching the colors change as the sun came up.
“Listen. I know that I said some pretty bad things…” He began.
She sat silently, trying not to remember. Those weren’t the best days of her life, to say the least.

In this Universe, the Dark Primal Wolf was not Eren's father instead he was a tyrant that began pillaging the Kingdom's of Mobius and in the end ruled Mobius with an iron grip. Eren's parents were killed in an war to try and end the Dark Primal Wolf's rule of Mobius and he swore to free Mobius from the Dark Primal Wolf's reign of Terror, so he trained to be both a skillful warrior and archer.

Between the Gajun River and the MoonPool, Oakfern
Dancing across the stones of the surface of the river, the roan stag’s eyes scanned the darkness. Every drop of water seemed to be alive as he felt the currents beneath his hooves churning, rolling and sending sprays of foam and mist up against his chest and face. The vibrant blue glow of his own paint reminded him of his mission. One day there would be retribution- oh yes. There would. The soft clip clop of his hooves ascending to the safety of the rocky surface along the river echoed through the blackness. Racing forward, ears perked in keen attention. Reaching out with his magic, the stag felt the familiar delightful power rolling in the river, that ever steady hum of energy, but there were no others nearby. Slowing himself, Ek

Things Get BetterExhaustion hit me like a freight train after the party that never happened. I’d invited a handful of people to my Taco Tuesday… and no one showed. So the huge amount of left overs was tucked away in containers and into the fridge and the dishes used whilst cooking… I couldn’t be bothered by them. I left them exactly where they had been left – here, there, all around the counters and in the sink – and I carefully treaded to my room. It was barely past seven-thirty p.m, but I couldn’t take it any longer. I was upset with myself for hoping too much for a nice get together with people I wanted to talk to, who’d become part of my life, if ever so slight. My heart was heavy, my head hurt with the pulsing negativity, and everything just seemed like too much for me to bear at the moment. This wasn’t the first time it happened.Things Get Better5 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This

Mihi, Keira, Chester and Zmaj, respectively, turned their gazes onto the eggs that Mihi and Chester were told to watch.

Unfortunately, he had been found. Miss Nelson, a government official, had threatened to shoot him on the spot unless he would promise to never say a word. She made it clear that she would not have mercy for a young boy.
Will had agreed, screaming and pleading for life. Miss Nelson had let him go, warning him that if he ever told anyone, he would be hunted down.
Of course, Will told his friends about it. He could not keep that terrifying experience a secret. His friends did not really believe him, but he felt comfort in telling them. He felt like he would not be alone.
Will was walking home a few hours later. Suddenly, a soggy rag came over his face, and an arm wrapped around his arms. He quickly fell unconscious.
He woke up to see a blinding light in his eyes. He was sitting in a chair, strapped tightly to it by several belts. A woman's voice made its way clearly thro
Into TwilightAs disappointing as the year’s meagre attempt at summer had been, Jamie was determined not to let the dull clouds hanging above the town dissuade him from enjoying at least something. The looming prospect of rain served only to speed his steps as he half walked half ran through the cobbled streets towards his destination. Turning a final corner, he spied the shop he sought, and made a dash for the entrance even as tiny spots of rain began descending, making it just inside the threshold before a downpour began behind him.Into Twilight2 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This

Humming happily to himself, Jamie flitted between the rows and racks of cosmetics on display. Creamy facemasks, luxurious lotions, and pungent perfumes battled for dominance of his nostrils,

"Don't you think you've had enough, son?" The grizzled man asked even as he took the empty mug from the counter and moved to fill it again with ale. A few moments later and it was set down none too gently in front of the clearly drunk man. A satisfied grunt was the only response as the man simply took the mug and gulped the amber liquor. Red stained azure eyes, shoulders slumped in a downtrodden manner and a steady slurred muttering of self-pitying words were more than enough clues to tell the bartender what woe had brought the man here.
"Broke your heart, did she?" He asked, wiping down the counter with a worn cloth before leaning against it. The sympathetic expression and soft tone, making the other look up from his sulking.
"She never even -hic- cared 'bout me." He hiccuped softly, the alcohol loosening his tongue. "All she cares 'bout is marryin' that rich bastard."

I am about 6 foot 10 in height with long dark blond hair and blue-green eyes. Even with my armour on I’m thin and because of that I’m agile. I’m often kept out of battles because of Halsey not wanting her only ‘defective’ Spartan to be useful. This means I have a lot of time to make these diary entries. It is annoying to constantly hear my fellow Spartans talking about what they have seen in battle and I can only sit there and listen. Because of this many of my fellow Spartans think I’m in Spec Ops and that is why I never talk about missions. This unique situation of mine has allowed me to become the most trust Spartan among the marines as I often sit down with them and talk about everyday life.

I climbed into my Black and Red number 23 Marussia, a team who had gone through leaps and bounds since I joined the team and had made a brilliant car that had won me six races so far this season. I had qualified in 3rd place while Lewis was starting 4th in his silver Mercedes.
