The Priest of Shadows Chapter 4Solstice felt a cool breeze against her exposed skin. Except there was more skin exposed than should have been. Solstice could feel that large pieces of her costume had been torn away, revealing her breasts and leaving her uncovered. She painfully opened a wary eye and examined her surroundings. She found herself in a large, hexagonally shaped room tied to a large pole. Looking up, she saw the pole glowed with a faint blue; a sure sign of Curium.The Priest of Shadows Chapter 47 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Where am I?" she asked herself.
From hidden speakers in the wall the answer resonated..."Doomed. You're on Arret, in MY world now. And when you leave, you'll no longer be Solstice, the heroine but Solstice the destroyer, Solstice my SLAVE!"
"No, NEVER!" the brunette heroine yelled in defiance. "If you were going to do that, you'd have done it already!"
"Oh my dear," laughed the Priest of Shadows. "Do you not see you're but one piece of my plan? Look around, what do you see?"

Sajiko yelped, seeing Allen trip ahead of him into some bushes. “Are you okay?” He asked, wondering just how Allen's form had been covered up in the plants so quickly.
“I'm fine.” Allen groaned, shifting up and brushed his bare legs off. Standing in a sparsely populated forest- with mostly ground cover about- in just a dress-shirt and boxers... Well he didn't look 'fine'. Sajiko was in a similar predictament though, dressed in a heavy sweater and his boxers, but he at least was used to walking on the fresh earth.
Allen trudged ahead, aiming for a clearing in the brush. Sajiko followed without a word. They had slipped and fallen into a river- well Sajiko had- off of a bridge as they were trying to get away from a very large angry wild boar the could hunch uprig
AwN: VeggiesIts lunch time at the guild and Lucy is about ready to pull her hair out in frustration. Natsu is off on a job with Happy and she is on her own to get Nashi to eat his vegetables. Sitting in front of his plate with his arms crossed stubbornly in front of him, the little Dragneel had eaten everything that wasn’t green.AwN: Veggies13 minutes ago in Short Stories More Like This
“Nashi Ignis Dragneel, eat your veggies.”
Brown eyes narrowed defiantly at her. “No, mama!”
“They are not that bad. How come you won’t eat them?” She asked exasperated, wishing she had gotten another cup of coffee.
“Daddy eats meat. Veggies no meat!”
Pouting, Lucy plucked a lonely broccoli floret that had been steamed and sprinkled with a little salt from his plate. She chewed and quickly swallowed, smiling at her son. “Daddy eats them, you just don’t see him do it.”
“Na uh! No meat!” Puffing his cheeks out in annoyance, Nashi turned away from his mother.

NTN prompt- bartenderFeeling lonely, Will sat himself down on the grand staircase. Although there were servants going around busily tending to their duties, none of them paid the young man any mind. Very few would even glance at him.NTN prompt- bartender2 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
Moments passed sluggishly. Will stood up, rubbing his thighs as he did so, and then headed toward the front door. One of the butlers standing at the door gave a brief smile to Will, nodding his head enough so his peppered hair shook. A bit surprised by the sudden acknowledgment of his being, Will nodded to the man. As he walked past the foyer's mirror, he noticed that his blue eyes had lost their luster, appearing sunken and the rich honey color had drained from his face. That was to be expected after not sleeping two nights, and spending one day in shock.
“I'll be back,” Will told the butler. The sound of his own voice alarmed him- coming out softer than normal with a harsh rasp bitten in.
The butler nodded at him once more, opening the door for him. Without anoth
Irken Emotion? Ch. 6 The Meaning of Life and SugarZim popped into the room after wiggling out of the kitchen's toilet, wrestling with his annoying green hair. Why he didn't annihilate it was beyond him. Well it might have something to do with it grew back immediately but that's not important. He fussed with his disguise,simply slipping in black bits of extensions into his green hair that he could hide his antennae in. it annoyed him but at least there wasn't an itchy wig anymore. He grumpily put in his contacts and pulled on a red and black striped hoodie, and some jeans. Simple but just boring enough for Earthinoids to ignore.Irken Emotion?

Zim glanced up and grimaced at Dib's appearance. the slightly greasy hair from his lack of shower having spent the better part of Saturday at Zim's house and thus not bathing since Friday or Thursday. not that Zim knew his schedule. His eyes were a little dark with grogginess and lack of sleep(as usual Zim noticed) and his glasses were askew with his wrinkled clothes.

Srong ArmsIt was one of the of the most gorgeous days of the fall season. The sun was shining, there was a slight breeze in the air, and the leaves were turning a bold palette of reds and yellows and every color in between. Everyone in the city was buzzing with excitement. It was one of those days where it seemed nothing would get anybody down. Yet, there was Lucy, hunched over in the parking lot behind a local coffee shop.Srong Arms6 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
Her heart racing and pounding. Her ability to breathe evenly vanished. The only thing left in her is the overwhelming feeling of memories that she doesn’t want to remember, and heartbreak that had made itself apparent again after months of being out of her life.
The memories of the past few months catch up to her. Her mind drifts to images of the two of them on dates. Dancing, dinners, and him meeting her parents. In those months, everything seemed so perfect. She thought that this might finally be her happy ever after. That she might for once have something to make her

“That's good dear, but why are you bringing this up?” She asked.
“Because I've been thinking, I think we are ready to start a family.” I replied She was silent for a couple of minutes. I guess she was thinking about my response.
“I've also been thinking about that too... but I didn't know when to tell you.”
“So do you want to try?” I asked.
She hesitated. “Yes.” She answered.
We went through the rest of the day as if it was normal, but really it was not.
Later that night we tried to start a family if you know what I mean.
For the next two weeks as we were waiting for the results I grew very anxious.
I was back at work and kept thinking to my self.“We can either start a family now or we would have to wait... It's okay if we don’t start one now but I would lik

"Oui?" Lucienne questioned. Remy's eyes flickered over his cards then he placed two down before drawing two more from the deck.
"When are ya gonna admit it?" Remy questioned.
Lucienne hummed, her eyes roving over her cards before she discarded three of them which Remy dealt back to her from the deck. She picked up the cards and was internally pleased with the cards she got.
"Admit what, Rem?" Lucienne questioned, finally acknowledging her brother's question. Remy didn't answer her at first, but lay his cards on the tabletop face up.
"Grand Jury." Remy said, tapping the two pairs of fours with a the five of spades card next to them. Lucienne hummed then smirked at her brother before laying her cards down face up, tapping the four kings with the ace of hearts next to them.
"Four horsemen." Lucienne grinned.
Remy let out a groan and Lucienne cackled at her brother's misfortune, br

<Orion-Starshine> Sai: Sai thinks for a moment. "I think I am." The sugary snacks had done her some good and she felt a bit better. She sits up again and stretches.
<starglimmer> Janobi: He nods, getting back to his feet. "If we're done we should head back." He heads back to Bibu. Reluctantly, he picks up his shirt; as uncomfortable as the cloth will be, far worse would be the chill of riding without it. He turns his back to the dragon as he shrugs back into it, that the incidental movement of his tail brushes against Bibu's [tail]. It was best not to startle him awake even from a midday nap. The dragon's instincts ran deep... including the
Adventures with Nashi: TunesLucy was laughing at Natsu’s new spin on the plue dance when she noticed her son waddling over from the Raijinshuu corner of the guild…wearing Laxus’ headphones. At first she wanted to rip them off her son’s head and return them to their grumpy owner, but her Nashi’s happy face was too adorable to ruin.Adventures with Nashi: Tunes17 minutes ago in Short Stories More Like This
As he waddled to her side with the giant headphones engulfing half his pink head, Lucy leaned down to tap his nose to get his attention. He clumsily pulled a earphone away from his head, looking up at her with wide happy eyes. She noticed a song was playing but is not familiar with its tune.
“Whatcha got there, Nashi?”
He giggled and returned the phone to his ear, then proceeded to dance as fast as his little legs could manage.
“Wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle yeah!”
Lucy blanched with horror. Not that song! Knowing she hated the song, her husband proceeded to switch from the plue dance to ‘Sexy and I know It’ then ove
(PKMN-A RP log) A Second Day (Part 2/3)<starglimmer> Janobi: Janobi makes one detour before joining her in the sky; after putting his axe through the loop on his saddle, he directs Bibu to take them back to the trees, where he uses the edge of his axe to take the narrowest of leafed branches off one of the treetops. Between the two of them, they have mostly close-range attacks; with Leaf Tornado, at least each of them would have a mid-range attack. He keeps them in his left hand, using his right to hang onto Bibu's antennae.(PKMN-A RP log) A Second Day (Part 2/3)8 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
Then they rise to the same level Sai chose. "Let's have a little revenge, Bibu," Janobi says with a smile. Bibu makes a querying sound, then a pleased trill. Of course one of the human words Bibu knew was 'revenge'. Like breaking a left limb, it was one of the things they shared in common. It was also the best hope that Bibu wouldn't get carried away. Sai's mock attack on him yesterday (was it only yesterday?) hadn't caused any lasting damage, after all.

(PKMN-A RP log) A Second Day (Part 1/3)<starglimmer> Janobi: As a child, the days Janobi could look forward to were the ones when his eldest brother had exhausted himself, and would go back to his room to rest instead of helping their middle brother torment him. The eldest, who he remembered only as "Aki", had the dark mage talent his parents wanted in their children, but very little power or potential. He struggled against this handicap by studying and practicing every night he could stay awake through.(PKMN-A RP log) A Second Day (Part 1/3)8 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
Working beyond exhaustion was a short-sighted, self-destructive method, and the same one Janobi had resorted to when he found himself in the same straights, though he had needed to build physical, rather than sorcerous, strength. His uncle would have used him as bait for dragons, instead of a rider to break them, if he hadn't. Then, the journey to Ylisse, when sleeping would leave both he and Bibu open to attack from any side...
Even though he had been with the Shepherds for a few months, now, he rarely slept m
