Only: Evil comes in many forms. Men....monsters....snowmen....
Raygan: Yay, Snowmen! Snowmen are so happy!
Only: Jack was nimble, Jack was quick, Jack gouged eyes with candlesticks. Infamous serial killer Jack Frost had racked up quite the body count, and was one of the most successful killers in existence. He chopped his victims up and hid them in pies distributed across the world. Hell, he was even capable of killing armed police officers with his bare hands while handcuffed. However, all streaks come to an end eventually, and Jack was arrested.
Raygan: Happy ending?
Only: Pffffffft, hahahaha! Hahahaha! In your dreams, kiddo! The truck carrying him to prison got into a horrible accident with a genetic research truck and Jack's DNA became intertwined with water molecules, granting him ice-based powers and making him nearly-indestructible.
Only: Jack was back and deadlier then ever, hell-bent on revenge an
2039 - Trickster (Part 2)Pete woke up with darkness still outside. How long had he been in Talespace, anyway? He was making progress toward being different, but he still had obligations.

A ghostly blue griffin materialized, hovering near a bookshelf. "You're supposed to contact Earth through scrying pools around here."
"Could we skip that? I thought I was buying backstage access, since you haven't held me to normal rules."
"Backstage." The griffin's eyes narrowed. "Sure, why not skip all the pesky storytelling."
Pete crashed onto a pile of mops and cardboard. He was in a white concrete hall lined with steel doors labeled "MIDGARD", "IVORY TOWER", "PROJECT_TROLLING_FAE" and so on. He stood and shook himself. Hands! He was a humanoid coyote again.
He tried a few doors, got a fedora from one labeled "HATS", then found an alcove with a video screen and a button labeled "call that guy you worked for" next to the
KRU:RO-Chapter Two: Page SeventeenKyra waited impatiently during roll call when she saw Dante standing to the side of the room, if she stared any harder at him, she would have drilled a hole into his head but she wasn't letting him out of her sight, not until she could pull him to the side and talk to him since he was still ignoring her calls and texts.KRU:RO-Chapter Two: Page Seventeen1 day ago in Introductions & Chapters
When it was safe to move, she darted for Dante and grabbed him by the arm to drag him to her office.
"What are you doing, woman?!" Dante snapped, trying to pull his arm away from her but she had him in a death grip and she was determined to have the much needed conversation they should have had a long time ago.
She practically threw him into her office before slamming the door behind her.
"Where have you BEEN?!" Kyra raged. "I've been trying to call you NON-STOP last night for hours!"
"My phone must have been off." Dante replied with a mean tone. "What was so important that you had to nearly rip my arm off
The Ravages, Part 5A thin trail of smoke curled up from the ever present incense stick on Alle's desk, filling the dark room with too many scents to identify. I held back the sneeze building in my nose. She listened intently, not interrupting once, while Jenar and I took turns telling the story, from the Airsärsus to the Rebel's base. It really was a long day.The Ravages, Part 51 day ago in Short Stories
When Nitzan came into the picture, Alle stopped us in our tracks. Of all the things for her to disbelieve, I didn't think that would be one of them. I had to describe Nitzan's appearance, perhaps a bit too well, for her to accept the truth. Everyone knew the stories about Nitzan, but Alle's apparent familiarity with the mysterious woman left me wondering about her past. They did have oddly similar personalities.
"Okay," said Alle, startling me out of my thoughts. "I want you two back in the field tomorrow. If you see any more Airsärsus, your job is to stick with them. No distractions this time. Understood?" Jenar and I nodded. "You're dis

A few hours later...
We are on a bridge that is over the ocean. I was staring out the window when I noticed a big white truck behind us. It kept getting closer to our car.
"Dad? That car behind us is not driving right."
He looks in his rear view mirror.
"What car? I don't see-" He begins and we are hit on the side.
Alena and mom scream. I'm jostled around and my seat belt come off. I break through the window and grab onto the bridge railing as I'm showered in broken glass. The car falls over the railing.
"NO! NO! NO! MOM! DAD! ALENA!" I scream as the car hits the water.
I pull my self up a bit and I see the white car quickly driving away. My hand slips and I fall to a lower bar. I hear a car skip to a stop and I scream.

He held true to the rules and didn’t speak while they were in the tunnels, only striking up conversation once they’d left for the next Entrance. It was less crowded on this side of the Lower Ring, as most people tended to congregate near the coast on holidays. Even though it was less crowded, however, he still latched right back onto her hand, swinging them lightly between them.
“So, are we there yet?”
Kira’s eye twitched and she glared up at him. “Really?”
Smiling pleasantly, he shrugged. “What?”
With a sigh, Kira said, “We still have another tunnel to go through, remember? I live in the Pilot’s District, so the fastest way there is through the tunnels—are you listening to me?”
He wasn’t, if the wa
How Yoshiro got his keybladeNormally, I'd keep this information confidential due to this information being related to one of my missions, but since my master the Purple Karjam requested me to tell you how I got my keyblade, I may as well share the story. I won't divulge much into the details, but I will share the most important information.How Yoshiro got his keyblade20 hours ago in Short Stories
My mission was an important one: recognition. My master heard tales of a being who's been going around causing havoc within worlds just so that more Heartless was formed, complicated by the fact that other worlds were starting to fall under darkness due to the involvement of the Heartless. We've heard of Organization XIII and well as their goals, but they wouldn't be active at this point within the timeline. And yes, I did play the Kingdom Hearts video games before going on this mission. After all, information is everything within my line of work.
The world my master sent me is, at this point in time, yet to be revealed within a video game. I will not be saying what the world

200 Writing Challenge Day 81- BreakfastLooking up from his plate, Isaac looked back at the other members that were joining him for this meal. While they had refused at first, seeing that he was just a scientist that just joined and they were high level executives, he had ways to get what he wanted. However, this time they agreed after he explained the situation, though he was slightly disappointed that he was not going to have to use his hostage scenario once again.200 Writing Challenge Day 81- Breakfast22 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters

I have a feeling, no, I know that this will not be his last attack, and he will probably only become more of a threat as time goes on.”

The police officer blew on his coffee as he idly watched the rather shabbily dressed man approaching him from across the road.
"Can I help you sir?" he asked as he took a sip of his coffee.
"Yes a couple of things," the man said as he stopped in front of him, "Actually three to be completely accurate. One can you tell me which way it is to Evil Scientist's castle, secondly" he suddenly stepped forward and pulled the officer's gun from his holster and quickly stepped out of his reach before pointing it at himself. "Step aside from your motorcycle or I'll shoot myself, bit of a waste seeing as I've only just got this body but still I'd rather shoot me than you."
"Just stay calm sir and give me.."

“Last bit of ice in all the world that didn’t come out of a machine,” he said softly so as to enjoy the sound of the rocky chunk of ice rattling around the glass. It tinkled merrily, the sound the last vestigial echo of a hundred thousand year journey. Extinction events, the rise and fall of species, and finally here to the shadow of the mountain in Iceland.
He put the glass down on the simple folding camp table and wandered back into the tent. The fuel cell hooked up under the cot kept the mylar bubble warm, if not exactly toasty, but it was enough to make him sweat under his parker. Rummaging through what little personal effect’s he’d been able to trek out into the wilderness, he soon found the bottle and brought it back outside. Putting the bottle down next to the glass and its off white shard of ice, he pondered which of the

Each one of them had come to talk to him at some point.
Lori came at dinner time with Allan and DJ.
"You better be on you're best behavior," Lori said.
He sat up, "What?"
"We decided to give you something you've said you wanted. You want to be part of this family fine, but you better follow the rules of this family."
He thought about this. He finally nodded. "I do want that."
"Great, we still don't trust you, so tonight's a test. Tonight's movie night. We're letting you out for a few hours."
He wasn't one to look a gift horse in the mouth. "I'll follow your rules," He got up.

Each and every one of us expected to see that tank come steamrolling down the corridor in front of us, but it didn't make it any less terrifying. The behemoth tumbled toward us ten minutes after our antitank munitions arrived. Something told me they wouldn't make any difference.
Calling the beast a "Tank" was a complete understatement. The corridor it inhabited stood at thirty feet high and about forty feet wide. Based on that, the tank was roughly twenty or so feet wide and about fifteen feet tall. The front consisted of angled armor plating colored black with safety yellow stripes on the edges. Mounted on the top (and comprising a good third or so of the tank's total height) was a massive cannon. Nothing anywhere on the station could hold up against that main gun. Hell, it could probably punch a hole in the outer skin of the station.
On either side about forty troops marched in unison, only these troops didn't wear the hefty combat armor that their counterparts in the por

La colonne progresse dans un silence relatif noyé dans la flore de la jungle épaisse. Alyster Cordero et son binôme, un autre costaud de son calibre, ouvrent la voie. Le sergent a troqué son habituelle mitrailleuse lourde à bandes pour un lance-flamme, plus efficace contre les Dévoreurs. Sous les frondaisons, il fait aussi noir qu'en pleine nuit. Les branches serrées dans un tissage étroit et les couches successives de végétation toujours plus denses masquent le soleil. Les arbres gigantesques dressent leur troncs vers un ciel invisible sous des treilles de feuillages et de verdure impénétrables. Les lianes roulent et s'entortillent le long de ceux-ci comme des serpents. On dit que les grand séquoias de Terra Prima sont quatre à cinq fois plus petits que ceux de Tenerakes et que ceux d'Hettan sont encore plus gros. Il parait que certains troncs peuvent faire la taille d'un

"What do you call this substance?"

"Yes. Pumpkin. Fruit. Genus: Cucurbita. Native to North America. It has a thick, fleshy shell which contains the inner fruit, fibrous strands and seeds. It is commonly used-"

I leaned against the wall next to the window, looking out at the world. The colors were almost more than my eyes could take, and so I turned to look at my home.
I hadn't known it was little then. Of course, it didn't matter at the time. It was gray, mostly, aside from the huge clear tube I had lived in before.
Every day I was brought out of it and allowed to explore the small fenced off area that had been made for me.
At first, when I didn't know how to walk, it had been a source of rage. But after my body learned to move, and my scattered thoughts settled a bit, I learned that I loved being awake.

Anomaly - A new day The sun rose on the cold city made of metal and glass that housed to many people to accurately count, children rose from bed and sleepily went to school while their parents went to work. The streets thrummed with life, most people passed the holographic images without a second thought while others stared at the figure till she smiled at them and waved; the work places were full and thrumming, the schools were quiet as teachers lectured but the streets never completely emptied, not during the day.
