"There wasn't much of a warning. We haven't been able to track down the direction from where the attack came from." Captain Lasky pointed out on the 3D holographic map, showing the explosion of the lone Pelican ship that had been gliding over the tree tops of the incredibly vast jungle.
"From the crash footage we managed to salvage, I believe she...managed to jump out before it crashed, it was a fatal explosion and there were no survivors. But...I can't track her down. Her helmet may have either been broken or she's dead." his voice was thick, his brows furrowed together in a grim fashion. He looked to his companion who was watching the repeat of the crash.
"Asylum is a planet unknown to us. We were hoping that this trip would give us a better understanding of the planet and its natives. We followed the distress signal of an old satellite but as far as I understand. We virtually know nothing about this planet. But knowing her...she'll be smart enough to

I woke up at 8:30 this morning. Now, why is that weird? Because I’m 16 and it’s summer break. That shouldn’t be happening. I shouldn’t be up before 12 on any given day during summer vacation, especially not on a Saturday. And I’m fully aware of this, and not happy about it at all. But the reason I had to wake up was because I had to go work. For no pay...at a crummy old building at the top of the hill. Yeah, you can tell how my day is shaping up to be.
To help my dad out with his job, I agreed to be a part of a Parks and Recreation program that involved me working up at this old windmill. Now it was only for a week, but I immediately knew how long a week it was going to be. He told me to set my alarm early, so I did. Early on a summer day is 11, which I thought was what he meant. But when I was awoken by his hand on my shoulder, shaking me, paired with him saying “Wake up, Jule, she’s here. The driver’s here to take you up to the Grind Mi

This is a world of impossibilities.
A place of mystery.
This is a playground for the unbelievable.
A haven for the unforeseen.
This is the city you’ll call home.
A city called Star-View.
Three parts separate it: A, B, and C-Sector.
A-Sector is the biggest of the three, a large population and a huge landscape to go along with it. Towering buildings can be seen from miles away and from the other two sectors easily.
C-Sector is the smallest but most advance of the three, housing the more "well endowed" citizens. A lot of really fancy technology, popular shopping spots and snobby people with sticks shoved up their gluts can be found there without so much as a map or some guy telling you "go this way for the McDonalds". It is also the home of our city's leader and his personal residence, Star-Tower.
And of course, we have the last of

“Lord Frost!” The soldier shouted, saluting. Frost sat in his throne, looking out the window of the large ship at the planet below.
“What is it?”
“We’re ready to land the ship on your command. We detected some intelligent life on the planet with moderate power levels…but there are very few in number. A hundred at best.” The soldier explained.
“Good…are you certain that my older brother knows nothing of this ‘Treasure of Namek?’”
“Sir…I apologize, but I’m afraid that Frieza has indeed heard rumors of the Namekian treasure, but he doesn’t see it as a high priority right now.”
“That’s fine. Let’s keep it that way.” Frost snapped. “You are not to report a thing to him…or to my father for that matter. The last thing I want is them getting involved in this.”

With Lady Penelope secured in the chair, Lazlo Karloff and Amanda Delacroix began their peculiar experiment in Inter-Dimensional Transport. The content of the tubes hissed, lights flashed and flickered alternately, and Lady Penelope struggled with her restraints; but she failed to escape. Meanwhile, despite his outward villainy, Batroc watched, puzzled.
“What are you two planning to do with me?” Lady Penelope demanded, rather typically.
“You are our newest dimensional tourist,” Amanda Delacroix explained, casually. “Sit still and wait. Fasten your safety belt for the journey,“ she added, sneering, as she secured the leather straps across Lady Penelope’s chest and waist.
“Let me GO!” Lady Penelope demanded.
“Oh, yes, you will go. Very far.”

A Chuisle Mo Chroí - part 3
After I pulled into my driveway and shut my truck off I sat there for a moment to see if she would wake up; she didn’t. She was leaning more to the side than she was before and her mouth hung open just a little bit.
“Raquel,” I rested my hand on her shoulder, “You with me?”
She sighed and tilted her head but I got no coherent response from her.
Outside the temperature had dropped and the wind picked up so much it was rocking my truck a little bit. I grabbed my coat from the back seat and got out so I could unlock the front the door then went back out to my truck to get Raquel. Rather than wake her up, I carefully opened her door, opened her seatbelt and lifted her out of her seat. Her head felt limp into my shoulder as I carried her up my driveway and into my house. She’s very light for me so I was able to support most of her weight with one arm while I shut and locked the front door behind me.

"Thalia wait, don't!"
The assassin's eyes widened as he realized he hit Thalia's father instead of Thalia. Her eyes were wide with shock, but Logan held her arm to keep her from running forward. The assassin appeared to be visibly shaken by this turn of events for some reason, and he took a slow step back, shakily putting his gun back in its holster.
Thalia stared at him. "Who are you?!" She shouted. "J-Just leave us alone!"
The assassin stared back at her, his green eyes wide. "I-I'm sorry..." Then he turned and leapt up onto the railing and to the other ship and disappeared into the crowds.
O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up—for you the flag is flung—for you the bugle trills
Thalia yanked herself from Logan's grip and fell to her knees beside her father. "Dad?" She called, shaking him. But he didn't make any response.

I know my parents wouldn’t like to get another note after my sister’s suicide letter, but I had to tell them why I left. I know they won’t be happy that I’m leaving now of all times, and for reasons that might seem farfetched, but they deserve some kind of explanation.

A couple of hours later, I stepped onto the Crockett’s bridge. Like many smaller ships, hers was an ‘open’ bridge. A fifteen meter diameter semi-circle of glassteel panels is all that separated us from space. It was a magnificent view, but one that would be often useless in actual combat, which is why each panel also doubled as a viewing screen.
Front and center was the helm and engineering stations. Behind and to port was the weapons station. Front and starboard was the captain’s chair and behind that the holoscreens for the navigation charts. The captain’s seat was nondescript, plain wood. It didn’t look very comfortable, none that I have ever seen did.
“Captain on the bridge!” Vennick saluted, the rest looked at me expectantly. Ransome sat at her post, hands on her lap, making no attempt to suppress a smile. At the helm stood the stee

Vilsid’s imprint form, a creature called a Cetzix, was adapted to this new terrain. In structure, he was similar to Karec’s Tevar, but had a shorter muzzle and a thick mane of fur around his head. He also had claws on his fingers and toes, using them to dig into the dirt to extract mineral samples. Vilsid was enjoying doing field work, getting into the ground like his Imprint was want to do, much like Karec and hunting.
Tira however, had been helping with taking air samples. Her Imprint was a Pholec, a fire generating winged animal. Most Walerians didn’t get this ability, but Tira did. She could set her entire body aflame without hurting herself while in Imprint. Mu

"I know, I know, but you don't have to be a stick in the mud all the time! It's not like one is going to burst into the school and go on a ramage." Right after Masuyo said this, a large buffalo like creature burst through the school doors and spoke.

The sounds of the plane Vega’s group was flying could barely be heard, and Cybertel quickly darted inside with a throng of people, blending in with the crowd by pulling a hood over her head, hiding her eyes and ears. Her clothes hid most of the other features, although her neck and fingertips were visible. She tried not to draw attention to them by acting like the others entering the religious building.
Inside the temple was vast and intricate, and only when she crossed the threshold could Cybertel feel the familiar shiver of power which meant a crystal was nearby. The location… yes, as she suspected. It was one of the featured pieces of the temple, held up by a marble statue reverently. As breathtaking as the sight around her was, her attention was drawn to the crystal, and aiming how to get it with as little commotion as possible.
Sounds of the plane landing, now. Vega would be here soon, along with his friends. By now, Violette probabl
