"Listen and feel for it," whispered Kryst, the older dragon. He had his test passed long ago, recieving his name proudly.
The young dragon has known for the moment to come. All dragons did. He was ready to receive his dragon name. Or at least, he thought that he was ready. Memories flashed in his head of the many times of when he hid among the rocks from the chilling air. Recently, he went out a little bit more, edging away through the cave-home he had spent most of his life in. His eyes briefly flashed with his father.
"Go," said Kryst.
The young dragon crept forward until he could see what all of the cliff edge had hidden beneath him. The wind was blowing harder now. He felt like a tiny star in the skies when it's dark. He slowly opened his delicate wings open, almost flinching when the air c

All of a sudden, his game show was preempted by a special news bulletin.Tales of A Trickster PokeMage: The Challenge Day 27 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Hello, I'm Cathy from News Channel 5 live in Lumiose City, where we've received reports of multiple, unexplained transformations going on throughout the city," the newscaster said. Colton bolted up in his chair as he watched the video taped transformations occur. What's going on? Am I next? he thought.
"Wait, I'm seeing something. Something's coming out of the alleyway." the reporter said. As the camera turned to look at the object in question, Colton braced himself for some hideous monster. However, all he saw was a young female trainer with a wounded Eevee in her arms.
"Miss, are you OK?"

Layla sat on the bowsprit of her ship, one leg hanging over the wood. The wind played with her hair and the fur on her tail as it swayed from side to side. 'I wonder what we'll find there,' she thought, staring at the lights of Johnstown in the distance. Behind her, she heard the others chatting, but she tuned them out until she felt a presence behind her.

At the castle’s entrance was where he stopped the horse. He knew that she would wait for him; he had known her his entire life, and they’d had something of an instant connection. She would wait for him for as long as it took.
Without his horse to carry him far, he knew he would have to run. The guard in and around the castle had been lazy as of late; that was what happened when the kingdom became low on money to pay their guards with.
He had to stop running about halfway to the throne room. He needed to preserve his stamina, otherwise he would show to be a weak fight, and he would never get what he needed. Even with his slowed pace, he didn’t stop to admire the scenery. People usually said that the castle was something of an odd beauty with its old stone walls and p

What appeared to be a dirty envelope was working its way underneath the door and into his apartment. He stood slowly, smoking ash and empty bottles scattering as he did. It had been a miserable few days; the riots had carried on for hours until the Councils Guard had finally shown up and dispersed people with force. Since then the occasional small group had trotted past, torches held high as they used the excuse to commit atrocities in the name of the people. Malick had decided to stay inside with a bottle or two and wait it out.

Seagulls cried balefully overhead as the massive, blood red ship entered the harbor. High over the crow’s nest flew a British flag, declaring the vessel one of the Queen’s own. Down below on the hard wood deck, men rushed to and fro. Each had a job to do and they all knew precisely to handle it. The bosun moved among them, but his voice was rarely heard. His hard hands found places to assist the men before moving on to the next team or single crew member. It was a well-oiled machine, this crew. One that their captain was proud of.
