Be Prepared for the Death of the Queen pt 3 EndTalentha: "Be proud of me mother. Don't be upset. Nothing was your fault. Good feelings, not bad ones." His gaze swung around to stare at the two lions fighting that his mother was watching. He stood, nodding to his mother. "Alright, tired me to break up battles then?" He half joked before returning to his emotionless demeanor.Be Prepared for the Death of the Queen pt 3 End16 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The darker lion squirmed out from under his uncle, running after Suma. Murdoc seemed ready to give chase, but it was all over.
"Mom!" The yell echoed across the mountains, and Kudan's head whipped around to watch the dark form fall, doomed.
His ears were perked, the pale lion watching the scene unfold around him. The two teens angry, the one that was in the West to begin with attacked his younger brother. The dark lion heading home after seeing his fallen queen, and slowly the rest of the Westland lions started to follow home.
He watched his uncle scramble down the mountainside, one wrong pawstep and he too would fall to his death. But
SadaptationPent up in a world in slow motion, I cannot adapt to changes, but I must adapt to the world, constantly changing ahead of me. This world I see is different than the one I once lived in. I, to the world, am changing as well, and I am not who I am in my memories. My memories are shattered. What I once knew has slipped from my grasp. The suffocation I feel is agonizing, as the world in which I seek is just beyond my reach, as I drift ever so gracefully to the bottom of the sea. It's a cold, dark place, and the pressure I'm under is overwhelming. I yearn for resuscitation, to have life breathed back into me. I've been pulled from icy waters, but the surface world is still a new place, and to my saviors, they know not of me. To bask in the warmth of the horizon, is to feel the cold of your past behind you, and see the glowing of the sun invite you to a new day, to create new memories, and cherish the world you live in, before it dies away.Sadaptation12 hours ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

A few opened their carts for customers upon arrival, just as the sun reaches the horizon, those who brought wares from the north, from Al-Amara and Thuer and further, unimaginably far away, beyond the date trees and the sand and the white buildings growing out of it like teeth and scales.
You throw a passing glance at the ironwares on one cart, and slip through. The maurid don't mind you, they had a long day pulling the carts and the people and now just want to drink, eat, and sleep.

" Angel! Angel!"
" Ozzie, go to sleep."
" I can't! The sky's awake, so i'm awake, so we have to play!"
" Go play by yourself!"
" Do you wanna go out flying?"
Ozzie bounded up to Angel's closed door. The angel sat inside, running his fingers along his remaining wing; the other long gone in the accident that gave his brother a permanent limp in his left leg.
Ozzie knocked in a rhythm,
" Do you wanna go out flying? C'mon! Let's go and play! I never see you anymore, come out the door, it's like you've gone away! We used to be best buddies, and now we're not...i wish you would tell me why! Do you wanna go out flying? We don't have to go very high-"
" Go away, Ozzie!"

Angel stepped towards the balcony that overlooked the kingdom.
His cloak securely tucked in his wing, disguising the painful reminder entirely.
Otherworlde Tournament: Cressida vs. ChronoThe sun hung in the sky over the arena, the summer heat having melted the snow typically around the academy long ago. Cressida Hawthorn stood at one end of the arena, ready, almost excited, for her next battle of the tournament. She had been unsure in her first match, the battle with Quinlan Rasplamsati. She had hesitated several times when she should have attacked, trying to judge her opponent. Trying to see what he could do. And the results had almost been devastating, between the Hexing student’s nasty curses and the spirits he had summoned. Cressida still had the burn scars from the spirit of fire that had almost won Quinlan the match.Otherworlde Tournament: Cressida vs. Chrono9 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This

"But really? The beach?"
"Whats so bad about the beach?"
"I'll get sand in my eyes." I told him with a small pout, watching for his reaction through the palms of my hands where my only working eyes are.
For some reason Stitches found this statement hilarious because he burst out laughing, causing everyone in the car to look over at us in surprise. We were generally a quieter couple.
"Don't laugh!" I could feel my face lighting up in embarrassment. I hated attention. Especially the attention of other Jinni.
"You're to cute, Nivel." I heard stitches tell me before he picked me up and set me on his lap.

Foolishness and survival
“Stupid little boy…” Jessie grumbled, lighting the last firestone in the cave. She had left Jason alone to wonder about what he said to her, expecting him to only last an hour or two before he came out crying for her. But it didn’t work the way she expected. It had been over four hours now and not even a whimper came from her room. She had laid down only a few meters down the main corridor to her room waiting for him to come out. She didn’t mean what she said about letting him do everything on his own, but if he wanted to try to survive without her help then she would let him, however she would not let him get himself killed. He might be a spoiled, stubborn, and prideful hatchling, but he’s her hatchling and would do as she commanded even if it meant him hating her in the end. Even if it did come to that she would still love the little tongue bitter with all her heart.

When I woke up I was in a white room. The Television announcer continued the boring, meaningless conversation; Books sat on a nearby oak table, the heart rate machine screamed "BEEP!" every 20 seconds. The pale white walls matched the boring bedspread; the window let me look back at the outside world. I turned my gaze over to my right and saw a sliding glass door that lead out to the crowded hallways. “Ah you’re awake.” A husky voice came from the corner in the room. I turned my attention to the voice and saw the man was standing in the corner with his foot propped up on the wall. I went to let out a scream but the man zipped across the room with lighting speed and covered my mouth. He stared at me for a few minutes and then let out a sigh and started speaking. “Okay, I’m going move my hand away from your mouth slowly. After that we are going speak in a low whisper, you try and signal the nurses or doctors I’ll knock you out

A little bit more time until the inevitable.
I was sat in the back of the Deputy’s car as I stare at my hands. Watching them begin to shake as I try to resist the urge. It would be so easy to transform right there and then. Almost too easy. But there was only one thing stopping me.
Werewolves aren't naturally claustrophobic but put one who’s about to transform in a tight space and you’re just asking for trouble… and a lot of pain.
I had to resist it. If I did transform in here the car wouldn't stand a chance. Having something bigger than it expanding on the inside? One thing would surely break. Either me or the car.

"Mmpphh," I sighed, stretching to wake myself up. Eyes still closed, I frowned. There was something on top of me, something big. It felt heavy, but whatever it was, it was resting on me lightly. I pulled one of my arms out from under the blanket and traced my fingers along the thing. It felt... familiar. Slowly, I opened my eyes. I couldn't see anything at first because of the bright morning light, but as my eyes adjusted, I saw exactly what was lying on top of me. A giant hand.
I sighed deeply as the events of last night came back to me all at once. The nightmare... singing... talking about nightmares... sleeping with... Eli. I wriggled around and craned my neck to look up at his face, expecting to see his sparking blue eyes, but he was still asleep. A small smile formed on my lips when I saw Eli's sleeping face. He looked so peaceful asleep, sweet even. And maybe even... cute? Not the kind of cute Bud was, either...

“I am a hybrid, part wolf and part dragon, though most of the dragon is not with me anymore. Least I still get to keep the wings.” The boy then let out a small chuckle, most likely trying to ease the situation.
“I know what a hybrid is, but you look nothing like one I have seen before.”
“That’s because I’m a second generation hybrid. Well, maybe second generation isn’t the best way to put it. I’m more of a former vessel for a sealed hybrid, which in turn allowed me to have his abilities mix with my own.”
Allison gave the boy a confused look. A vessel for a sealed hybrid, how was that possible? She had never heard of such a thing before. What the boy had said seemed to be nothing but a lie, but here he was, standing in front of her. Seeing that she was still confused the boy continued talking.

Featuring Sila and Falakee
Sila sighed. She looked at the black stag who stole her away. She hasn't been strong enough to run away from him. It's not that she didn't try trough. Often even! The Black stag had his hooves full in trying to keep his golden prize. She looked at a stag daring him over another doe in his harem. As the fight started, Sila couldn't pass up this opportunity! She carefully walked away - trying to sneak away!
Falakee slowly, almost begrudgingly, walked on towards where his brother kept his harem. He was never close with Elraad- their mother, Ocera, had left her sons with no sense of family- but of all his brothers, Elraad was the one who occasionally felt as though he should impart some wisdom on his younger sibling. Falakee sometimes wondered if if was due to the simple fact that he looked so much like him; both of the large stags were almost completely black.
