Rise of the Ancients Chapter 1 p. 1Antarctica had once been a continent of ice, and snow; a barren land of blizzards, glaciers and biting cold. Over the centuries, it had been transformed into a tropical wilderness, owing in part to a shift in the Earth's orbit and climate change.Rise of the Ancients Chapter 1 p. 16 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Rivers and streams, bountiful of fish and crustaceans flowed freely under the watchful eyes of lizard-cats, creatures which were capable of an almost perfect camouflage except for their icy blue eyes of which there were six.
Birds of paradise, star spawn and creatures that defy description flew gracefully over the canopy of the forest.
However, all was not as beautiful as it would seem as foul creatures were said to have lived in the boggy regions by the polyps.
The polyps had plagued the great race of Yith for millenia, however due to sudden fertility of Antarctica, many had migrated there an had chosen to disguise themselves as trees. Needless to say, obesity was rife in the polyps and many started to display sadistic behavours, whether inna

ENOCHIA FTWEnoch lumbered like a bear towards his usual sleeping spot, close to the cars but far enough away he coul watch the darkness. He slept without the usual comfort of blankets or the backseat of a car--he didn't need them with the extra 10 pound fluff that covered his body. But more so, he felt better being able to watch the darkness from there. He could see better, hear better, and smell better. However, it was doubtful he could remember that at the moment, all he wanted to do was rest his bones. If it wasn't the emotional toll on him, then it was the physical. All infected animals seemed to have super strength and super speed--luckily they were all early in the change, but damn it still hurt. He plopped down with a loud thud, nevermind any gracious moments or bed-circling. There wasn't going to be any sleep for him, but it felt nice to lay down. For once, Enoch turned away from the darkness. He'd seen enough of it today.ENOCHIA FTW6 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This

Victor was surprised to see Chase actually turn up to school on time the following morning. More than that, even. Chase was early. And Chase was never early. Straight away Victor felt a spark of worry and he speed walked over to his friend.
“Geez Chase, did someone light your bed on fire?” He asked in a light voice, trying to hide his concerns behind humour. “You’re never this early!”
Chase glanced up at him, and he looked so tired and exhausted and pale that it broke Victor’s heart. There wasn’t even the faintest flicker of a smile on his face.
“Victor…” he said, and stepped closer, dropping forward to rest his forehead against the taller boy’s chest. “…Something happened last night”.
Victor became tense. Had Chase attacked someone else? Had he…had he done worse than that?
“What?” He asked, swallowing heavily.
His arms remained limp by his sides, despite knowing that

In preparation for that night’s activities, Mike locked himself in his lab and sat down at his desk. He adjusted the collar of his lab coat and surreptitiously triggered the remote he’d sewn into the collar. It sent out a burst signal that activated devices attached to the cameras in the lab. Anybody watching the cameras would see him at his bench, working on MIMIC.
Mike rubbed his eyes a few times and then ran his hands down his face to scratch his beard. He’d been planning this for much longer than he’d told Julius because he knew Julius would not be able to keep the plan secret for more than a day or two. So he’d had time to come to grips with the fact that he’d most likely be dead before the day was through. But, he consoled himself with the fact that his contributions to the world would live on in MIMIC.
He turned on the camera that sat next to his computer, straightened his hair, and then hit Record.

Desmond tapped his foot for what seemed like the millionth time. He felt like he had been waiting there forever. He was beginning to get impatient, after being kept in the lurch like this for so long. Where the hell was his opponent? How was he supposed to find them? And what in blazing heck was he going to do when he found them? He'd shot countless zombies, ghouls, mummies with his trusted bow and arrow... but another person? That was the one thing that worried him more than anything. Was he simply expected to beat his opponent in a friendly contest? Or was he supposed to kill them... the very thought made him cringe. He had accepted Pay-paer's challenge with great gusto, but now he wasn't so sure.
Suddenly, without warning, the air around Desmond began to shimmer, almost like a heat haze. Desmond looked all around himself, confused, as everything around him got blurry. Then, out of nowhere, everything turned white. "What... what is this shit? Man, I'm

I’ve been trying to warn you for months; to tell you they’re coming. The wolves won’t stop for you. They didn’t stop for me. They’re hungry and they’re angry. They’ve been trapped for generations and now they’re free.
The wolves will come for you so you have to run. I don’t know how long you have; you might have waited too long already. It didn’t take long for them to destroy our town, they ripped people from the streets and tore them limb from limb. They thundered into houses and demolished our lives until how they left was the shell of life.
If the cats start to run, you should follow them. They’re smarter than you and they’ll know when the wolves come. Trust them.
I don’t know where you can go. They’ve destroyed so much already I don’t know what’s left. Maybe you could run to the sea and find a world outside of theirs. Maybe the forests would save you. I don’t know what the

Her mother was waving a stick of burning sage around the kitchen making the whole house smell like marijuana. Rose, her younger sister, was sitting at the table, watching Mom with wide eyed fascination.
“There are demons in this house that must be excised without removing the ghosts,” Mom replied calmly. She placed a white eye patch on today to cover her missing eye. Unlike most of her brown and black patches, this one had a strange symbol embroidery on it.
Daisy stamped her foot. “It’s the 1950s not the 1450s! There’s no such thing as demons!”
Mom set the burning sage on a plate in the middle of the dinner table between two sprigs of mistletoe and a Chinese teacup full of red whine. “Pay attention. This is important. One day, my dear eldest daughter, you will inherit these duties. Now, sage is to cleanse the air. Mistletoe is to drive out the demons and the wine is an offering

Clouds shrouded over the dim moon, leaving an ominous ray of highlighting yellow streaking through the night. The wind sighed and rustled the thin limbs of the dying trees. Somewhere, a crow cawed. A whole flock took off, leaving slick black feathers raining down to the lake shore below. The lake shore was soaked. Not with water, however. It was soaked in blood.
Underneath the trees lay a dead porcupine.
Well, not exactly dead. Dying would be a better word to describe the porcupine’s state. But if someone ever happened to find the unconscious being, they would have, without a doubt, called her dead.
Her violet eyes stared out into the gloom. They were glazed over and unseeing. Her brown quills, hardly visible through the coating of red she wore, spilled over the soaked ground, matted with crimson blood. A hole, plunged straight through her chest. A hole, ripped through her, torn, with a bullet embedded in her heart. A tear in the center of her beating heart, empty,

Dear Dr. Hunt
Patient 8.3B, or if we want to sound like he's a human being, 10 year old Christopher Walkmen, has had another one of his... "bizarre"... incidents. The reports his parents made to the original facilities which held him before they saw fit we needed to take care of him seem to have been proven. 8.3B appears to be in control of his Pineal Gland in a way we have only saw in theory. We do not have direct video evidence to back of this claim but there is some sort of odd energy emitting from the boy's center of his brain, upon tranquilizing him and X-Raying him, his Pineal Gland has an increase in size. The Pineal Gland should be the size of a pea. His is the size of an eyeball. I don't know if we should have psychologists check the boy or if we should get an expert on human biology. You wouldn't believe me if I told you, but, I'm writing to you an
