Starcrossed || Thirty-TwoAfter cleaning the dirt and grime off, Elise felt a little clearer in her head. Her determination remained, but her mad urgency was replaced by patience. Neburn was right; she couldn't just rush into something like this. She sat on her knees on one of the workbenches in the man's secret room. He had opted to set up the ship and take a look at it. Elise could tell that he really wanted to continue work on the thing, though he tactfully didn't act too excited at the prospect.Starcrossed || Thirty-Two13 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The visor turned over and over in her hands as she observed it. There was a faint dial on one side, which she discovered was used to flip through some of the dormant menus on the display. She hoped she wouldn't run down the battery before she figured out how to find Sean with it. He hadn't even told her how.
Elise rubbed her eyes wearily. She was tired, but she had opted to wait until she made some progress before letting herself sleep. She released a frustrated sigh and set the device down. "I keep wondering

At first, he hadn't notice the click of heels coming down the hall, but when he did, it was too late. He looked up and his face went white. This was the one person he did not want to see.
"Miss Winter! I-" Jeremy quickly began, but was cut short.
"Hello, Jeremy.." The woman muttered, pulling out a keycard and swiping it. The panel gave two sharp beeps and glowed red.
She looked stunned, and gawked at it. "They revoked my access..?" She quickly turned to Jeremy, who was frightened and up against the wall. "Let me in. Now."

"I don't give a shit what the Admiral said! You will let me into this room right now or I swear you will no

Castle Acorn: home of the royal family of South Island and the country's rulers, the young King Elias and his wife Megan.
One cool Spring morning, the Sun's rays flooded the royal nursery. A big crib held two babies, roughly fifteen years apart in age. The light made the younger, a little squirrel in purple footie pajamas, wake up. This was Alexis, a commoner by birth. She began patting the side of the much bigger baby she had been sleeping with in order to wake her up.
This bigger baby was Alexis' step-aunt and the king's younger sister, Princess Sally. She yawned.
Sally: "Okay, Alexis, I'm awake."

A few weeks earlier…
Zapping endlessly between channels, Hinata grumbled with each disappointing discovery. ‘A freakin’ 100-year-anniversary and they feel obliged to talk about it endlessly on every channel?’
Every attempt to watch TV the last three days had ended in disappointment. Every channel she visited had some sort of documentary or biopic showing; and when she thought they had ran out, they decided to show them again. June 7th wasn’t for another three weeks. She understood that 100 years was a big deal, but did they need to make such a huge fuss about it? With a sigh, she pressed OFF and the screen went black with a short fzzz!
With a sigh, she fell down into the couch’s soft embrace. The leather felt cool against her touch, as the chills of April and March were still fighting for survival, even though June was just around the corner. Their battle left cool tingles dancing across her skin and she let

I originally couldn't decide on the gender of the main character for the first book. so i flipped a coin to decide the gender and various traits. the traits not given to Nau were instead given to Siti.
Pariah was directly inspired from the anomalies in the Metro 2033 games.
The Apparition of change was the last one i designed.
originally there was going to be a combination of all apparitions simply called "Corruption" but i was never satisfied with it so i cut it out entirely.

"There's someone at the door." David said softly from the opposite side of the room. He'd left her there for almost an hour while he worked. Eve hadn't minded too much, though. It intrigued her that she was standing, free of the cage out in the open. As David had quickly finished up his studies, she busied herself by walking across the wooden surface of the desk, shuffling around stacks of paper and scattered pencils.
It had been too long since her boundaries weren't that of the cage bars. Sure, David was in no position of letting her go, and he was going to give her back to her master as soon as they found Adam, but for once, Eve had been granted a taste a freedom.
"I'm hungry." Eve interrupted the Laquanian as he listened in to the sounds of someone knocking the door. The man grunted and stood up, his LCom shutting off to sleep mode as he left. He checked his watch briefly, before cursing under his breath an

The doors were kicked open by a black boot.
Some of the staff members looked somewhat rattled as to what they were seeing, but chose to stay out of the man's way. His feet took him around the catering area, where he got a closer look of some of the ramblings of a gossiping group. He didn't pay any mind, but overheard "Victor Fernando" and "Championship Challenge." Though this was best accepted in a monthly period, the man made an exception. He smirked, and continued walking.
At the announce table, Yuki and Kiana took the time to welcome the crowd. However, their voices were barely heard by a wildly fanatic Charlotte crowd. The stars got themselves up, and ready for combat., and the fans got ready for the fights to take place. However, someone came out, wearing purple and silver, posturing as if he was a royal man of stature.
He arrived with a group of servants who basically coddled his every whim. Then, he

Owen had ignored this quest for a while. He had forgotten about the bet he had made with Amilia for a while, and after that, well, he was afraid to complete it. Amilia had been acting flighty, and this mission felt like that only tie to he had to her. But tonight, he finally felt ready to return to the archery range. Amilia was already there when he showed up. She shot Daniel quick glance before focusing on her shots.
“I believe we had a bet,” Daniel said. He gave it a moment, watching her arrow fly before she turned to let him speak with a raised brow. “I think I’ve given you more than enough time to practice. How about we finish that bet of ours?”
He couldn’t read Amilia’s expression until a slow smile built up, outweighing whatever else had been going on in her head. "Now works,” Amilia s

My older brother and the human female, Jasmin, had left for a respite the morning I started working. Since they had time off so did I, as I was a student at Elder Thaiden's school and my older brother was a teacher.
The school was new, the first of its kind. Elder Thaiden wanted to bring a more rounded education to the older Yautja that still had yet to be blooded, the goal was to produce more educated and aware adults as a result.
The education and awareness was to breed understanding of a plethora of different things that would help young blooded adults so that there would be less fighting among clans.
How I wished that Thaiden would have decided to open his school a few hundred years ago. My parents, the rulers of the clan Tox and I were from, were trying to avoid a clan war. We shared a planet with another clan, and there used to be three others but they either left or w
The EvernightThe moon peered through the forest canopy as Sarah struggled to pull free of her grave. A thick muddy mixture clinging to her arms as she pulled up out of the ground. Cool November air flooded into her lungs as her head broke through to the surface. A throaty gasp as her bodies inner workings set to their task. A soft thumping pulsed in her chest as her heart regained its steady beat. The world sat in darkness as sinewy muscles worked to remember their purpose.The Evernight1 day ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Sarah waited for the rise and fall of her chest to settle. Cobwebs in her mind clearing bit by bit as thoughts began to race around familiar tracks. Her arms reached up to her face, the feel of the rigid skin still hard, lifeless even to her numbed senses. She was dead, but yet...
She forced open one eye, then the other. A quiet expectation for the cruel nightmares she’d seen for so long to be there before her. There was nothing. No one. Nothing but an empty forest stretching out around her on all sides for as far as she c

Susan could see them in her mind's eye, ugly, blocky things, never meant to fight an atmosphere. She had a pang of nostalgia from her wild days traveling with another clan, the Aberles, flying and racing the custom-built fast runners, what the People called balryma'e, all engine and power plant, nearly as fast as a military raider, if more lightly armed. She could almost feel the rumble of those powerful thrusters shuddering through the hull and into her bones, and contrasted it against the almost undetectable thrust of the Xanadu's underpowered little engines, efficient and slow.
Beyond the balryma'e on her display, she could see the massive, lop-sided outline of the Aiendes Homeship, deformed by the much smaller main driver of the Bonhomme

Knock knock knock.
The sound echoed through the Beacon’s empty command deck. Corra let her knuckles fall from the door as she waited. You better answer, she thought, half in threat and half out of worry that he would not. Sure, it was very late at night (or very early in the morning), but when they’d shared a ship, Finn had always kept odd hours.
Fortunately, the door slid open. A disheveled, yawning man greeting her on the other side. His hair stuck up at all angles, his eyes were squinting into the light of the hallway and his shirt was nowhere to be found. Clearly, she’d woken him.
Before she could even spare a word of half-hearted apology, Finn blinked himself into waking and said, “Well. This is surreal. When was the last time I found you outside my door in the middle of the night?” which made her laugh.
“Been a while, true,” she admitted, brushing past him to enter his room. It hadn’t changed much since she’d been here last, y

-He pensado… Nosotros los seres vivos sin excepción vemos en el cielo la perfección. Subir a lo alto es nuestro objetivo natural. Lo necesitamos, lo deseamos. Desde las termitas que construyen sus altos hormigueros… a nuestra propia evolución. Nos erguimos. Y levantamos nuestras manos. Con ellas empezamos a construir edificios, y en ellos grandes construcciones megalíticas. Primero altos monolitos. Después grandes templos en la olvidada Épsilon, cuna de la cultura. Después… en todo el globo.
Humanos a lo largo de los siglos han convivido con las otras razas. Ellas también, con su inteligencia reprodujeron nuestras obras. Mientras los humanos construíamos catedrales y avanzábamos a ser la civilización predominante, otras construían sus ciudades, buscando esa altura, esa superioridad.

Deviant Rangers' origin WIPI had just come home after a long dig looking for exotic metals to make new robots out of, when I had found 5 animalistic looking machines. It appeared as though they had been in a state of disrepair when I found them, along with an ancient book, most likely their owner's manual. The first animal that was dug up was a bear-like machine. Then, afterwards, was a mechanical fox, then a robotic lion. A wolf later joined them, then last but not least, a hawk. I had them on the trucks under the tarps all ready to go back to my laboratory, when who should show up, but my financial backer, Don.Deviant Rangers' origin WIP1 day ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
