Spookymoon was wakened by tweeting birds. Purry’s back legs were on his head. Carefully, he slid out of the den and went looking for food. He loved running for the forest. Before long he saw a rabbit nibbling grass. He stalked it and at the right time pounced on it, killing it instantly. He brought it back to the clearing and went looking for more. When he returned with two birds, Purry and Aqua were up. “Oh goody, breakfast”, she said, licking her paw. The smell of fresh meat woke Ricky up and he soon joined them. “You guys probably don’t enjoy eating this”, Spookymoon said. “But that’s all there is in here.”
“Nah, it’s alright”, Ricky reassured him. Soon the rabbit and birds were gone.
“Wow, that was delicious!”, Purry shouted once they were done. Aqua gave her a funny look. Spookymoon stood up and faced everyone. “Hey, let’s do some exploring!”, he suggested. They all agreed and fol
All Hallows Eve - Part 1There weren´t many places where Halloween was celebrated like in Lost Soul City. To normal humans, souls were just distant memory of deceased ones. They weren´t part of this world anymore. Only they were. Glowing in darkness, souls surrounded the living ones waiting for Souls Guardians to take care about them. Mission of both Soul Collectors and Soul Acceptors was usually deadly serious but not tonight. Tonight they celebrated like anyone else, or even more like anyone else.All Hallows Eve - Part 17 minutes ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
“Come on, we´ll be late!” Digit whined. He was impatiently shuffling at the door of Reaper´s room. His rabbit ears, sign of Soul Collector, were nervously flinching. Digit loved festivals and Halloween fest was the best party of whole year. Everyone who knew a bit about souls went to Forbidden District and celebrated. Digit planned to hang around with other teenage Collectors but he also wanted to drag Reaper along.

The agitated middle-aged man, with gray shortly trimmed hair, shoved all the books and research papers off his desk. They scattered haphazardly upon the stone floor, some finding their way across the rest of the study. As his anger quickly subsided, his breathing calmed, leaving only the sound of the hearth’s crackling fire in the corner.
It had been months and still no positive results came from experiment after experiment. Aether is a source of one’s soul. Simply creating it out of nothing was utterly impossible.
His staff all knew that the child was alive within the Queen’s womb. However, the Healers, nor Alchemists, could decipher why there was no Aether present in the ever growing bulge of her majesty. Usually, within the first months, the mother would have acquired twice as muc
Gurren's regret (TC origin)I'd just left my culture behind; I was shunned by my people... I have done things that cannot be undone. My fiance is now dead and it is my fault... My sensei Raylin told me that Drakonians like myself are a rare sight to the east, If the gods have any mercy left for me then I may find an escape from this guilt, this pain within my heart, and this rejection from all the others.

I have been heading toward the Central hollow ever since leaving Aqua's labyrinth, I am lucky I survived by myself. My raft was destroyed by that... creature... I only wish that Raylin had warned me about this place... Mirrorrim Lake.
The lake was surrounded by what seemed like a giant stone bowl, an opening in the ridges on either side of the water. This place was affected by some form of enchantment, the water could be tread upon and the lake would show you things that werent there... things you want to see. Weather it be a desire, a dream, or a loved one.

You and I were in the closet, wishing to each other half-secretly among the motes that the duels could be rare as dragons, at least. Instead they were only rare as quarter-moons.
Ground liquifies, sometimes, during a duel. The stars brighten and fall faster, leaving holes in the ground and setting forests alight. The sun hides in a bird’s nest, they say.
We did not see when the damage was done. We were accustomed to avoiding to know even the names of those who fought. Our eyes were far from windows.
But duels always ended the day after they began, and we stepped out as if we were free.
Your eyes caught the light first, and when I followed them my air caught in my throat. Like going underwater without the protection of a mermaid.
That day our world was on fire. The glass of the town hall had melted to colorful puddles on the ground. Some houses were gone - some people too, I realized. Surviva
Gabriel Special: FreedomI slightly tilted my head up and took a deep breath. All the scents of the Painted Winds Valley tickled my nose; the fresh, crisp air, the sweet wildflowers, the mouthwatering prey, and the wild wolf packs. I smiled and began to run through the forest; as I ran I could feel my heart beating to the sound of my feet hitting the ground. It felt good to run; to feel the cool wind in my hair, the warmth of the sun on my skin, and the soft grass under my feet. When I was a sex slave I couldn't run. All I could do was curl up in the corner of my master's basement and cry, all I could smell was cigarette smoke, firewater, and unmentionable things, and all I could feel was unloving, cold loneliness. I went through that for thirteen years now...I'm free. I stopped running and looked up to the sky where I saw a proud bald eagle soaring high. I smiled and gently wagged my tail because it reminded me of what The Great Spirit's Word said, "He shall mount us up with wings like eagles, we shall run anGabriel Special: Freedom36 minutes ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Nero may be a wicked and terrifying villain, but he didn't begin that way. His story goes much deeper, deeper than that of a simple dragon prince who turned to the dark.
Many years ago an egg was laid; an egg so unique, so marvelous, that many saw it as a sign of hope. But others a sign of evil. As the years went by, the young dragon improved; and showed to be quite powerful. First he mastered his birth element, fire. Then blue dark fire, shadow, electricity, earth, dark magic, and many others including wind. But a secret he kept from the others, even his own siblings, was his hidden element. An element that was unheard of for a Deimos to inherit. Ice.
Only time will tell now, what will become of him…what will happen once his path is chosen. Or will he forever be claimed and drawn to the darkness. Will he rise up and fight for the good, or destroy them?

The Spider on the Scroll
Ashren stood with his hand outstretched, hovering over the brass doorknob. A sudden and powerful burst of self-doubt and fear had erupted in his heart and caused him to stop dead where he was, just before opening the door to the Arch-mages study. His hand began to tremble, testimony to the fierce internal battle that raged within him; go in or go back. This had never happened to him before. He had never hesitated to accept a personal request from the Arch-mage. But then again, no jobs had ever come so close to killing him than those ones. Finally, his powerful sense of duty commanded him to at least her the old wizard out, and his hand seized the doorknob. He entered into the Arch-mages study, a stone rectangular room lined with many bookshelves and a single desk in the middle.
“Are you familiar with the prophecy of the swarm?” The Arch-mage asked as soon as he entered. He was certainly straight to the point as usual. No

Mikey watched as in front of him Donnie coughed for a moment before letting out a gentle wheeze. “sorry……can't play……today.”
Mikey shook his head, “Downy be better.”
As he spoke he leaned over making sure the small blanket that was draped over his older brother covered as much of him as it could. Under the blankets Donnie smiled weakly. “I’ll…..be ok…… need rest.”
Behind him Mikey felt Leo and Raph shift, “we leave you now Donnie. Get better.”
Donnie nodded and closed his eyes, doing his best to draw in deep breaths but only succeeding in making himself cough more.
Mike felt his brother’s touch his shoulder, trying to get him to follow them out of the room. But he ignored them, shrugging off their touches as he moved in closer to Donnie. “help?”
Donnie opened an eye and looked at him. “m…Mikey?”
Mikey nodded, “how help?”

Spring, Year 749 of the New Age
The Cape, Windborne
Alshain had woken early this morning, eager to start the day. He frolicked about like a small fawn again, though he was becoming a robust 5 year old stag, his forehead itchy with his brand new antlers that would soon come in the following autumn. They hadn’t peaked yet, but he knew they would come! He had worked hard the past year, training with his father and a few of the other bucks his own age. Many other young fawnlings were pacing about in the pre-dawn mist, all anxious about todays ceremony.
A small tang of bitterness creeped in his mouth. Most, if not all the others who were to be initiated today were younger than him. His father had held him back from this journey, training him to compensate for no magic. He knew it would make him stronger, but he was envious of the others who were younger than him, they would be the same level as him, three year olds learning at the same rate as him!

The song birds darted about singing their happy tones and critters of all shapes and sizes came out of their dry hiding spots to find something to eat. Faline's papa, Crow, was also out and about looking for food, leaving her alone once more in the den. She sat at the entrance and stared out to the forest before her, her tail wagging with excitement, she wanted to go explore- what harm would come from it?

I open my eyes slowly… I lean up slowly. I was lying on black-and-white checker board tiles. I look left and right. There was nobody except me.
I hear someone footstep. I turn toward right; there I see a white mare. Her mane was pink. I notice her cheeks were red, calling my name “Enigmatic-Medic… Please don’t run!” I start running away from the white mare. I know that strong pleasant smell that she releasing out her body. I refuse to let her do anything to my body. I know it terrible to those who we
Lullaby BoxAuburn dust hazed the air, diluting the already weak light of the setting sun and hiding uneven lumps of stone and shattered beams from sight. Hilde tugged her scarf over her nose and mouth and slid carefully down the slope of what might once have been a carved column, using the tip of her sword as both a crutch and a blind man’s staff. The terrain was treacherous; twice she had nearly been buried by a shifting piece of stone.Lullaby Box2 hours ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Still she persisted. The Red Queen had returned from the grave once before; this time, they must be certain and see her body destroyed.
When Hilde finally came upon the Queen’s fallen form, she almost didn’t recognize her. The cold beauty of her expression had melted away in death, and her crumpled body showed none of her usual regal bearing. If not for the unmistakable fire-hued robes and the enchanted rings visible on her fingers, Hilde might almost have thought that an innocent was somehow caught in the final blast.
It seemed almost wrong tha

Artistic Talent and Depressed Elsa
The next morning I woke up and I was the last in the dorm; so I got dress, gathered my charcoal drawings and Teddy (I sat them in my bag), and headed down stairs for breakfast.
“Morning Ro” Elsa said as I sat down between her and Alice
“Good morning Rosie” Alice said
“Good morning El, good morning Alice” I said before chowing down on breakfast (bacon and eggs, yum!)
“So what are you going to do today?” Alice asked
“I dunno” I said between bites “Probably hang out with you, Clove, and Elsa or spend time with Scorpius”
“So your usual as always?” Elsa stated
“Pretty much” I said
“I still am having a hard time getting the fact through my head that, after all these years, you and Scorpius are dating” Alice said wiping crumbs off her mouth
“Yeah Al and I feel the same way” Elsa said shoving a sausage patty in her mouth

Sobs of confusion and pain rung through the stormy air, as a small winged tom with brilliant, crystal blue eyes, sat in a dark alley, his pelt soaked, and his small wings failing to shelter him from the rain. "Where are you... Mama, Brother..? Sis?!" He called out, knowing it was useless.
The small spotted cat stood up, looking at his wing, which was covered in blood from that dragon kid who had made him get lost. He padded through the rain, tears streaking his face. He ran, thunder booming above him.
"Anybody..?" He mewed, shaking. He came out of the alley and saw a cat with wings, who was a little bigger than him, walking down the sidewalk. "Brother!" He exclaimed, slamming right into the figure. Wren bounced back, landing in a puddle, and saw the cat had a duffle and beanie over his fur and ears. The cat chuckled, smiling a little, bu

Keeping close to the treeline I make my way unhindered past this encampment. In the predawn silence, the guards bitch and whinge like old wives. There was a time I would have cracked their skulls for their incompetence. That time has passed.

No matter. I have other tasks at hand.

Me and my 4 friends were heading to the mines and only a few of us brought torches. We head to a mineshaft and dig for what seemed like hours. The end result was 64 coal, 18 iron, a few stacks of redstone, 10 gold 3 emeralds and 5 diamonds. We got turned around on the way back and ended up in the middle of the caves, still hopelessly lost.
We wandered around another hour or so I hear footsteps from behind. I turn around and hear a thud then soon hear someone crying. “Hello? Is someone there? Please come out, we won’t hurt you.” I say. The crying gets louder and I head over leaving my friends behind. Maybe they are lost like us. Maybe I can help a little. I think as I get closer to the crying.
I look to see a little girl. She was in blue clothes and looked a little dirty. Her pigtails were all messy and see looked young, maybe 10 or 11. “Hey are you lost too?” I ask, kneeling down to her. Suddenly she grabs my head and covers my mou
