Thalia's Tale - Ch. 31 - Harvest Fest Harvest Fest, Thalia quickly learned, was very entertaining. Every recruit had the day off to enjoy themselves, and could literally do anything they wanted without getting yelled at by their commanding officers. Thalia had only just stepped out of her quarters, having gotten to sleep in till ten and hang around her quarters until eleven thirty, when she was first met by the insanity of the day.Thalia's Tale - Ch. 31 - Harvest Fest22 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Just beside a suit of armor at the other side of the hall, a couple sat together. Very close together. Thalia felt herself get a bit uncomfortable at the two mackintosh on each other and looked down the hall the other way, only to see a girl standing right beside her, grinning evilly at the couple. She shot a glance at Thalia. "Watch this shit." She said. She raised her her rather large water gun and shot it at the couple, who both shouted out and scramble to their feet, backing away down the hall.
The girl burst out laughing, lowering her gun again, the

C19H30O2 – the chemistry of power
The only way of telling time is when the luminescent rod burns out – that marks about three hours, but I trust my intuition instead. And it has yet to let me down. He should be here any minute now.
A single, hard knock on the door punctuates my thought. Right on the time that stands still. Checking that the key is still safely in my pocket, I go and open the door. He curses as he barges in, tearing off his jacket and throwing it on the floor, and proceeds to claw at his jeans. My smile fades when I see that he’s wet, droplets are falling from his hair and his clothes are damp.
I push him towards the bathroom, grab a knife, the rod and a pair of surgical gloves from out of the box on the counter – I have to deal with all sorts of shit, sometimes literally, it comes with the nature of his trade – and we struggle violently to rid him of every piece of soaked clothing as quickly as

Back in the closet, the doorknob moves a bit. Then the door suddenly as a bunch of stuff fell out. T.K. groans as he tries to recover. The whole experiment was not pleasant for him, especially since he got tangled up in Christmas lights. Suddenly a bowling ball came rolling out and hits him on the head hard making him yelp.
"Ah gee! This is worse than all the times I’ve been captured or tangled up in the Digital World." T.K. groaned as he feels his forehead coming out. After he recovers, he took a look around.
"Aaron, the coast is clear. Aaron, where are you?" T.K. asked looking around.
"There's a demon situation going on out there! Let's go, Warriors!"
T.K. froze a bit. That sounds like it came from Aaron's voice box. And to make things more complicated, Cream's voice is heard. "Really? That is so interesting."
Out of concern, T.K. went down the hallway to the source of the noise. He found an open doorway and peeks in. W

In the world of Heroes and Villains, there are always other people that watch in the background or people involved in the story, but serve in a generally more minor role. This guide serves to help you create your supporting cast of characters and help make the story that the heroes and villains live in more alive for the reader.
1)Name and role:
First off, when starting a story you will want to name your additional characters(this is a preplanning step, it isn't required you can definitely create characters on the go as well) and define your role within the story. This could be for example, a lord/king/queen etc, giving a quest to the heroic knight or even a hero within a tavern talking to the bar tender is there has been going on lately.

Once again he had a presentiment and so he hurried to the front door.
She wanted just to ring. Her fingertip was only a half centimeter in front of the bell-push,
there was opened the heavy, old wooden door with black mountings of metal. It creaked terribly.
Behind the door there was a young bald man with glasses.
He shortly eyeballed her. Then he asked: "So you would like to have a look at my cellar?"
Puzzled the young woman answered: "Uh ... yes. But how do you know this?"
"Mmmmmmh ... it was only an assumption", he answered thoughtfully.
With a hint he asked her in.
"Close the door, please!"
She did this. And while strolling afterwards, she looked around.
"An interesting and beautiful old house. "
"Yes? Do you think so?"
They crossed the labyrinthine corridor of the old villa. On one of the commodes
there was a bowl full of fruits. She took some grapes and ate these pleasurably.

The next day, Edward is up to his evil tricks again as he played one of his twisted games. And, unfortunately, guess who the victim is this time.
"Oh, a survivor! Where's the rebel base? Talk!" yelled Edward who is playing an interrogator as he slaps T.K.
As T.K., who is inanimate right now, landed on the floor hard, a smirking Edward/interrogator goes to a window that is blocked by a shade and said. "I can see your will is strong." He chuckles sinisterly as he opens the shade, allowing sunlight to come in. "Well, we have ways of making you talk."
T.K. was forced to watch as Edward gets a magnifying glass out and concentrates the beam on the Digidestined of Hope's forehead. Suddenly a white hot dorm begins to form and soon it started to smolder.
"Where are your rebel friends now?" Edward laughed sinisterly.

Naila and Anya, who acted as surrogate guns for their tank-like machine, were effectively repelling most of the opposition. They didn't want to harm any of them, because they knew that Bryan was trying to help them, just as much as the fox-men were. The man in white, Foxune was making a brave attempt at climbing his car to reach them. He was only so close to him.
Naila looked down, and frowned. She turned her head to Anya, and said, "We don't want to hurt them, but..."
Anya closed her eyes, and raised her foot. In the next second, Foxune was headed back to the road, back first. The others stopped to collect him. But, Bryan was on his tail, and so was Sikes and Gorgeous. All three were armed with guns, and no bullet was spared. Sikes stopped frequently, though, ensuring that nobody got hurt. Bryan stamped the gas pedal again, angry as to how slow t

At first sight it was hard to see. The sun had set about an hour before we arrived at the Scott Interstellar Corporation's Mars settlement. But the thin atmosphere on the planet made for some unnaturally bright stars, which made it surprisingly easy to see the night scene. The 5 hubs were fairly unsatisfying at first sight. The largest man made structures I had seen in months were small spots within the jagged, unruly martian landscape.
All 5 structures that made up the settlement were (are still?) connected/ insulated by tunnels, so we didn't have to put on our Mar-Suites to go from the farm to the cafeteria to dorms, for example. It was set up very much like a tiny urban university, except on Mars we were completely cut off from the rest of humanity. The larger bubble in the center acted as the center of the colony, aptly called the Center. In it is the cafeteria, a conference room, and the center of communications
Nok'Sanid culturethe Nok'Sanid's are a race of flightless birds from the planet Vaid. while they are very technologically advanced, they have not developed any sort of space orientated technology. this is largely due to the rules of a religion that all Nok'sanid follow. it specifically dictates that space is the realm of their god (the sun) and should not be entered by mortals.Nok'Sanid culture8 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
it also says that the stars are the sun god's many stillborn children and vaid is the only one that survived, and the moon is an egg that had yet to hatch. satellites, space craft, even high powered telescopes are banned by the churches. nok'sanid that refuse to believe in the religion are to be shunned.
it also has strict rules regarding relationships. all Nok'sanid must be "approved" by the church before they can attempt to find another. this is to avoid good nok'sanid from dating criminals and other unfavorable partners. anyone who defies that list can be arrested. it also states that nok'sanid who work for the churches canno

Starscream instantly fired off a missile which made screams fill the room. Megatron flew backward and slammed into the wall.

It was just before crest when Mink arrived. Eleté didn’t recognize him at first. Gone was the drunken slob from the night before with wild hair, a full face of hair, and dirty, foul smelling clothing. Here was a man with a fresh young face, medium-length hair pushed to one side, the hair on his face limited to around his mouth, and clean crisp clothing. The clothing style was odd to the Eleté. He wore a white blouseé with the top undone, a black vesage, long gray panlons with plenty of pockets, and brown Zrits. He had one other thing that the Eleté found curious; some large brown thing on his back that looked to be weighing him down.

When he opened his laboratory door he saw his twenty year old daughter, Zoe. Zoe was clad in a black top cropped a good five inches above her incredibly big and deep innie and yoga pants that hugged her hips. "Father," she said with a slightly curious tone, "what's going on?" The doctor only answered with, "if you love me, you wull do as I wish."
Zoe, being devoted to her father no matter what, complied. He laid her across a slab of metal and fastened the straps down. He put the blood into a syringe and began to lower it above Zoe's navel.
Zoe was terrified of needles. She absolutely hated them. So naturally it was a dark time when her father started to lower one into her navel, her favorite pl

Er musterte sie kurz von oben nach unten, und dann wieder von unten nach oben.
Dann fragte er: "Du möchtest dir also meinen Keller anschauen?"
Die junge Frau antwortete verdutzt: "Ähm... ja. Aber woher weißt du das?"

The Adventures of Harvey AshesSmall creatures charged at the downed escape pod. As they arrived they tore away at the ship's exterior. Violently removing the metal out side, and tearing out wiring. One jumped on the escape pod door. Suddenly the door flew off, taking with it the creature that had jumped on it. From the escape pod, emerged a miner, whose armor had taken quite a few hits, wielding two electronic blades, one with two blades. The creatures on and surrounding the escape pod shrieked and started to jump and attack the miner. With blades in hand, he fought the relentless waves of the small creatures. Cutting them in half, in fourths, or just slashing their tiny bodies as they drew closer. They forced him back into the escape pod, and their victory seemed imminent.The Adventures of Harvey Ashes14 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Ce soir là le ciel était presque dégagé, laissant filtrer un dégradé de lumière bleu quasi parfait au dessus des innombrables lumières de Séoul.

C’était dans l’une de ces tours que Dust avait rendez-vous. Et c’était là-bas qu’allait s’amorcer un nouveau tournant dans la vie d’un petit groupe d’individu.
