Wishes From The Soul -Chapter Two- The small black cab veered around on the stone roads, swaying back and forth slightly as it went. Dakota and Ainsley were most certainly still there, holding on for their lives. Ainsley was dangerously close to falling off, with her back paws scrabbling to get a hold on the smooth roof. Dakota was crouched down at the front, and was slowly sliding backwards..Wishes From The Soul -Chapter Two-2 days ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"HOW DO YOU STOP THIS THING?!" He yelled, turning his head towards his sister.
Ainsley peered ahead; she had heard her brother speak but hadn't understood him, for the wind in her ears was way too loud.
"WHAT?!" She said, and tried to stand up, but failed and almost fell yet again.
"I SAID--OOF!" Dakota was halfway into answering, when the taxi stopped with a jolt, and sent him flying forwards, and he smashed straight into the little pop-up sign in the front that said 'TAXI' on it.
Ainsley gasped, and struggled some more to get up on to the roof to help her brother, and finally did it after about three mor
Downfall, part 5Even with the ringing in her ears, which seemed to grow louder by the second, Timidbreeze heard Cinderstar's demand about protecting the MoonClan leader. She forced her eyes open, and began to pull herself to her feet...but for some reason, her legs didn't seem to want to work. The ringing turned to the sound of her own heartbeat, racing in sudden panic that she couldn't stand. What was wrong with her? Why couldn't she move!? She felt weak, and her whole body began to shake violently.Downfall, part 511 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This
Black spots danced in her vision; but even so, she could see Cinderstar, the orange Dawnclan leader who was standing over her a moment ago, bolt off towards Fallenstar and Ebonystar. Timidbreeze fumbled to her paws, shaky as they were, and managed to call out after her, "No- please! Leave him alone!" With every word, she could taste blood on her tongue. Even as she pleaded, she knew her words were falling on deaf ears. She tried to take a step towards them, to defend her mate, and fell forwards into a pud

This is what I need, and I'm telling myself this, despite the horrors still following me.
The poignancy and the sins.
The living and the dormant.
They haunt my life in every moment both awake and asleep. The caring hand was comforting, and was commonly the one to wake me from my nightmares. She would not question it, and would just give me a drink, and let me be alone to think.
They called her a rogue.
I called her a savior.

Disclaimer is fairly identical to the one for Ismene's previous story: I don't consider this one of my best works, still feel a little unsure about how to write about human characters, would prefer that this was taken as a rough (and in this case, unfinished) sketch, etc.
For those of you who are actually bothering to read this, I hope you enjoy the shortfic anyway.
"And to think that I’d… I’d thought it was all a dream..."
"I'm sorry that it wasn't. Er, gimme your wrist?"
"Might've gone ahead and believed myself, too, if it weren't for this," the man said in referral to his broken arm, which was now being splinted and wrapped by Ismene's practiced hands. There was a small grunt of pain from the injured merchant, but he was otherwise (very thankfully) complacent with her jostling.

They are the ones who killed my master. They are going to regret it... Suddenly, Stephen's face popped up in mh head. No... What I'm thinking is wrong. We need defeat PSG, but not because of hatred or revenge. Those are not good reasons and would bring only more sorrow and hatred. No... They must be defeated so they won't cause anything like this again... Yeah, that's what would Stephen said...The Loremaster's Shadow: Part 82 days ago in Short Stories More Like This

"Check!" Said Samantha.

"A large crate of MD?"
"Chuck! Had it cool in the fridge!" Said Adam.
"Alright! Everything is ready for the night. Let's head out!" Ordered Simon, his friends saluting him before leaving his room. The group were three boys and one girl, all dressed in their PJ's and around the ages of 7 and 9. It was around 10:45PM, all of Simon's Family having gone to bed other then himself. For mouths now the band of friends had stayed up late to eat snacks, drink soda, and read comics in their clubhouse until passing out. Pretty much your cliche kind of youngsters, only the clubhouse isn't what you would expect.
Creeping through the hallways did the group slowly creek open the door to Simon's older sisters room. Snoring away in her bed was Kate, a young adult and kind sister that the Simon enjoy playing pranks on whenever possible. Though the thing that shocked her most was waking up pregn

That would not be the case.
“Bllaggghhrr!” echoed unpleasantly through the narrow corridors, the typically sloppy voice of Magister Drayrien filled with wine was becoming commonplace for Eveltrisé, followed by a shudder worthy attempt at piano. An impending sense of weariness washed over Eveltrisé as she navigated her way to the source of this heinous crime against music.
Drayrien Ashfallow sat alone facing Eveltrisé's piano in what she considered to be her personal chambers, her only place of true respite. He was draped in a number of wine stained cloaks, his wild black hair sprawled uncere

When I looked at it, green flames devoured the rock, until was left from it. And there stood a man with blonde hair in dark robe who held some kind of goblet. That goblet was made from gold and two green eyes floated over it.The Loremaster's Shadow: Part 63 days ago in Short Stories More Like This
Stephen instantly drew his longsword. "Who are you and what are your plans?" he asked that blonde man and got in front of us.

"And Ben!" said the man and gently put the goblet on floor.
~SHUSH. NOW, YOU MUST PREPARE TO DIE.~ we heard the strange voice again as the blonde man raised his hand. Yellow light appeared and when it was gone, the man held a staff with strange purpe gem on top of it in his hand. Stephen raised his longsword, as did I and Maria created an water orb in her hands.

Moist warmth, soft green filtered light and the sound of tropical birdsong from all directions… even if it was of birds totally unknown to her… it was enough to bring the exhausted, broken elven queen to tears.
After the evacuation of the Ruborian Sanctuary the small portion of the elven people that’d escaped chains so far had fled even further south, on the glowing blue wings of Fay’s magic, jumping through the Deep Sea of Sand, across wadis, gorges and eventually a great savannah. Now they had arrived in a land deceptively resembling their lost Everlight, and many had literally or figuratively clung to the tropical forest giants. Dwellings had been sung from the gleaming hardwood of the trees, and even a few elegant works of art and depictions of the Mother Goddess, out of pure gratitude; a homage to this southern rainforest, this Saipern.
Queen Fay hadn’t sung yet. She clung to her arbor, purely not to collaps

The music fills my ears, consuming me with rhythm. I concentrate on the path ahead, clad with the headphones that became my life all those years ago. A soft hum escapes my lips as the heavy metal beats drill into my head.
I blink, tugging my right earphone out to come face to face with the beautiful Ava, her forehead creased in… pain? I purse my lips for a moment, drowning out the word. No thinking about the p word, Cole. It’ll screw up everything.
“Your Monitor’s buzzing again.” Ava says softly, peering at me sadly with ruby red eyes. She’s wearing sunnies to hide their oddity, but I see right through the darkened glass either way. She’s so close that it’s hard for me not to notice their radiance. I shake my head swiftly at her comment, proceeding to tug out my other earphone. My eyes skim over the Monitor strapped to my wrist.
“Crap.” I mutter, trying not to come off as sour. I can
The institute remake chapter 1A short balding man walked into the center of a dark stage. A small click sounded through the air and a single spotlight lit the center of the floor. The man stepped into the light. His face a pale circle, only split by a slash of red across his mouth, circles of pink on his cheeks and a light shade of blue over his eyes. “The institute is honored to have such esteemed gentlemen in our concert hall tonight. We ask you to let us know if anything can be changed to suit your liking. We are here only to serve and entertain.” After a short pause and a low bow to the silent crowd he grinned.

Beneath My Exterior - Chapter ElevenThe alarm goes off beside me, filling my ears with piercing white noise. I smile to myself, reaching out to slap the regular sized appliance off the bedside table to silence its wailing. My hand swipes cleanly through air, whacking the alarm clock hallucination of the equally fake table. I groan, rolling around on my regular sized bed and tug the flimsy sheet over me to muffle the still ever-present alarm. Strange, how a single sound could have taken me that far back into my past, to a time where everything was okay. A time where I was five foot six instead of four inches tall.Beneath My Exterior - Chapter Eleven20 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The alarm continues to blare in my ears, although this time, it’s accompanied by a voice. Deep and rumbling, as everything has sounded since becoming a Nazaree, but still clearly female. And familiar. Yes, that too.

Mare glanced at the two heavily-garbed Amaiza, one in front and the other behind. They were walking at a brisk pace, though neither of them explained anything beyond a simple order to follow. He sighed irritably.
“…Are you going to tell me where you’re taking me anytime soon?” he asked raggedly. Four days within the library, and barely a single bit of information that proved to be useful in any way whatsoever. He did, however, find a small amount of articles pertaining to lichdom… meaning the trail wasn’t completely stone cold.
The guards remained silent, for to them it would be a wasted breath as he would know when they got there. The door needed no explanation with its carved face and grand size. It swung open on silent hinges, and the gloom inside seemed deeper than that in which he currently stood. The gua

Okay, I think some explanations are in order. My name is Kevin, and I'm a pirate. Well, ex-pirate, actually... Okay, so I was never actually a part of their crew. I was taken prisoner when they raided my ship. Apparently, I was to hilariously pathetic for them to kill like my fellow crew members, so they put me to work, just like I used to. Let me tell you, working for my old crew wasn't exactly glamorous, but the pirates were even worse! On the old ship, I was at least largely ignored. On the pirate's ship, it was like I was their personal chew toy! I would always get pushed around or beaten for the slightest things. Sometimes, I wouldn't have to do anything at all! They could just be in a bad mood, or I would just be in the way.
Well, I finally had enough. I sneaked into the captain's cabin during the night, and stole his treasure map. Th

"...Ohhh, I'm glad I'm wearing brown pants..." Herrick muttered. On the other side of the fallen wall was another arena that was flooded with countless shadow creatures. The group instinctively tried to move to the sides of the arena to avoid being seen.
"Dang, they aren't going away... We might have to fight..." Hale didn't sound so keen on fighting this time.
The group's fears were soon extinguished by large beams of light raining in from the sky, destroying over half the shadows in mere moments.
Herrick stumbled forward, saying "What... happened?!". John's hand stilled him.

Quinn jogged up the yard towards the door as the little hand on his watch edged past noon. He rapped at the door, looking in through the glass.
“Come in!” came the muffled cry from inside the house.
He felt over the doorframe for the loose tile that hid Morgan's spare key and let himself in once he'd found it, slipping inside. “Morgan?”
Rather than her familiar freckled face peeking around to greet him, Blue came looking around the corner at the end of the hall.
“Shit,” he hissed, fumbling with the doorknob behind him as the cat shot down the hall towards him, growling.
“No!” A rush of green and red shot out of the living room near his right and intercepted the animal. Morgan attacked the tiger, working her hands frantically at his neck and chest, bringing him up short.

Otherworlde PTS 304: Gold and WineArtifacts can be used in potions, then? Very interesting… Cressida watched with an intense stare as her professor removed the golden fragment from its cloth. To her, it looked like any other piece of gold, but she knew that this piece of the hand of Midas really was as powerful as Helmy had said. Why else would he be so careful around it? While turning objects into gold wasn’t particularly interesting to the witch, the idea of powerful artifacts like this existing around the world was fascinating. What else is out there? she wondered, as Professor Helmy finished his lecture. And how does it become imbued with magic in the first place? This could be very useful for her research indeed.Otherworlde PTS 304: Gold and Wine1 hour ago in Short Stories More Like This
