"You seem to know a lot about magic."
"I really don't. I know a little."
Lewis sighed. "So... He could have teleported like a hundred meters. Wouldn't be so bad if we actually knew which direction that was."
"North is easiest... South is hardest. He probably went North."
"Sounds like that's our best option."
"Although, he could be. Better Mage than we thought... And he could be tricking us into thinking we should go north, when he really went south."
Lewis groaned. "Simon, don't overcomplicate things."
"Just saying!" Honeydew ran to catch up with the taller teen, and they both headed northwards. The didn't talk for a minute. "...What if they kil

“Wake up,” were the words that kept repeating. They sounded sharp, short, and mildly panicked. Then she heard her name, “come on Danni, wake up girl. Time to go.”
Everything snapped in to place all at once and Danni could make no sense of anything. She felt like she was being squeezed, choked, and entangled. Something very irritating was working it’s way in to her lungs and even after her eyes snapped open she could see very little. Whatever she was breathing was also getting into her eyes and she had to squint so hard that it hurt. She wanted to rub her eyes clear but couldn’t. One hand seemed to be pinned right to her side. The other had very limited range. Something was blocking her elbow and she could not lift her arm as a result.
The only good news, as Danni could figure, was that despite all of the cold and damp surroundings, she was pressed up against something very warm and hot, “Tony? Oh my god. I thought you we

Weeks went by before I found myself in my Elder's meeting room. "Sit comrade," Thaiden said motioning to a chair at the large table. I did as I was told and sat down, taking on a relaxed position. He had called me up for an informal meeting for his short stay at home before leaving again. He had arrived only recently but planned to go out again to look for a few more students.
"You are looking much better," he said with a smile and I nodded.
"I am feeling much better, Elder," I replied and it was true. Ever since Jasmin started to take care of herself I slept better, ate better and finally got some much needed exercise. She had taken it upon herself to begin a strict schedule to aid in her recovery, she went to bed at a certain time, woke up at a certain time and had a very unusual routine in between.
I was just happy that she was finally feeling better and was able to func

Seppuku had raided the Federation's nuclear facility, and now the big secret was out—at least to Earl. As for Chiya, she would remain unaware of Seppuku's background for an unknown amount of time. Undoubtedly, there would be future issues because of Seppuku's discovery. He desired to kill Black Shadow at whatever the cost. He could kill himself by detonating the nuclear warhead, or he could kill Black Shadow without it and return to Earth—where he'd most likely spend a lifetime in prison. Earl didn't like to envision either scenario, but of the two, he chose to support the imprisonment of his friend.
Chiya and Earl were both sleeping once again. Earl had gotten a late start, however, since he had been hiding himself in Seppuku's office for much of the night, anticipating that the Man of Darkness would have returned late at night—which he did. Chiya had decided to sleep in her regular attire for once, including her hat. Oddly enough, Earl did quite the same,

"Perhaps a heat wave?"
The sun was shining down mercilessly on Skyhold, and regardless of its position high in the mountains, it was a hot, hot day.
Hit after hit, Cremisius Aclassi just did not seem to be going to grasp the basics of the shield bash any time soon. The Iron Bull was starting to get frustrated. “Come on Krem! I know you prefer handling your huge hammer, but it’s always useful to master a different fighting style. Work with me here!”
The young Lieutenant of the Chargers got back to his feet and crouched again to a defensive position, waiting for the next attack. “Ha. You wish you could handle -your- hammer like I do, Bull.”

“Base, this is Saber. In position now, moving in.” Gabriel kept it terse, partly to be professional and partly to keep the team’s second in command from finding fault with his statement. The dark-skinned man sent the Frenchwoman a quick glance to check if she’d had fault.
Lueur wasn’t that bad of a magician, but she’d only been a stage magician beforehand. Unfortunately, that directly led to the next largest strain to this working relationship. The other two members of the team, Becca and Dani, were her assistants. Neither of them had a problem with being led by Gabriel, but it drove their master positively mad.
“What’s the assignment?” Becca asked, ignoring the withering scowl Leuer

“Oh man, oh man, oh man!” Amidst a steam filled locker room a young Saurian paced furiously, wearing a white robe and gripping her head with both hands. “Why the heck did I let you talk me into this?! The crowd already hates me, I saw the signs out there! I’ll probably get disqualified for some bull crap reason or maybe get stuff thrown at me!”
She turned towards the only other occupant of the room, a tall and slender figure with black skin, clad in a suit that matched his skin colour to the point where it was hard to tell if the suit was part of him. This being was a foil to her panicked state, reflecting no emotion in the blank gaze on his near featureless face as he watched the Saurian throw a fit. To anybody else they would not hear the being’s response, nor would they even see him open his mouth...truth be told, the Saurian didn’t even know if he even could open his mouth.

Native American Male Voice: A wise Medicine Man once told me, destiny is patient like the pebbles in a raging water...
A man can be seen walking alone in the dark woods, holding a torch in his right hand and clutching a circular object close to his chest with his left arm. He comes across a cave, cautiously looking around before entering.
Native American Male Voice: It took me a... long time to figure out what he meant.
The man spent a few hours in the cave with what sounded like metal chipping away at thick rock. The man slowly came out of the cave, hos dusty and sweat stained clothes with the occasional blood stain, clung to his body. Just the style of the clothes suggested that it was some time in either the 15 or 16 hundreds.

The man can be seen dropping the torch he was carrying and started running into the darkness of the woods, however he did not

A younger racer, still in his driving uniform, came in and poured himself a mug of coffee. He closed his eyes and drew a slow, long sip before setting the mug down and taking a few deep breaths.
Kids, thought Russell, with some amusement. "Hey, you're Dylan Coulter, right?"
The young man looked up, startled. "Yeah. I am."
"I heard you did pretty well today."
Dylan's hand moved to the pin on his jacket, a large star with a steering wheel imposed on top - the mark of a driver in the Pro series. "I guess so. They gave me this." He topped off his mug again and raised it, his hand shaking slig

After searching for many hours he came across a small wooden shack, well built and quite structurally sound. After examining the shack from a distance, he noticed a small dim light emitting from a lone window. After thinking through his options he decided to use a silent spell that allowed him to control an orb, the orb was small and dark with no specific powers but it could be used to peek through the window without being noticed. So he slowly approached the window using the small orb and peered through, inside, he was surprised to see a seemingly beautiful girl of his own age sitting in a rocking chair examining her nails. Jaydan decided to test

Screens that were once dedicated to every ESPN channel were now filled with snipers, boots scraping against prized digital ground, and other sounds of war. First person shooters may have lost their crown, but still held strong. Their clans mirrored the NFL’s football teams and their seasons filmed with fans just as loyal.
Only two members of team AK-AOS were left defending their base. One was camping at the heart of it and virtually safe as long as they didn’t move. The second was crawling around from vantage point to vantage point in hopes that he could pick off the full team one by one. It was a slow process as the other team went around picking up all the weapons and vehicles they could. But then, faster than a blink of an eye, the sneaking player got a rocket launcher to the face.

“Gee, you think?” Prinzy snapped an ear back, its eyes burning with demonic fire. “I’m gonna change every single one of those TransSec stooges.”

“See? Mira was right; you do need to be kept here. If our opponent had a bone, you’d be helpless.” She winked, brushing some of her golden hair past her ear.

Rezz pressed a button on a control pad set in the tunnel wall, and the section of wall in front of her peeled away to reveal the entrance to Rinzler’s cell. She stared in, looking at Rinzler who appeared to be sitting cross-legged on the back wall, glaring at her. Rezz smiled grimly; this cell was of her own design, with a controllable gravity field. From Rinzler’s point of view, she was standing horizontally, looking down at him from the “ceiling”. If Rezz stepped in now, she would find herself suddenly falling at a rapid rate towards the “floor” where Rinzler waited. A single push of a button would shift the gravity so that one of the walls would become the floor, and another the ceiling, and she could walk in properly.
Taking a deep, nervous breath and then letting it out slowly, Rezz keyed in the command for gravity shift on the control panel, and waited until she saw Rinzler slide off the far wall and onto the “floo

A knock came at the door to the portacabin and he turned to see a Server standing there. She had implants in the front and side of her head leaving hair only down the middle of her head and hanging down her back. Brett didn't understand implants, but if he had he would have been able to see that she'd had her frontal and temporal lobes enhanced.
“Brett Samson?” She asked, but he felt that she was probably doing this more out of politeness than necessity, the Server-bot had probably already scanned him and informed her of his identity. He nodded and she nodded back once. “I have been assigned to liaise with your team.”
