Mike was cleaning the camera lens for the fourth time that evening when Mr. Prez walked in red faced.
“Still no answer?” Mike asked.
Mr. Prez clenched his phone with rage. “Still no answer.” He said pinching his nose. He looked around the room. All the equipment was set up; the lights, the camera, the props. Everything was in place for the photo shoot except the thing they were shooting.
“I can't believe she did this again. How does she expect to make to make it in this industry if she is always late or a no show?” Mr. Prez said with his head pointed toward the ceiling.
“Maybe she just got caught up? Mike said putting the camera down.
“Oh please I'm tired of her excuses, it's always something.” Mr. Prez looked down at his watch. “Oh we're running out of time and I need these pictures for the spread next week. I can't have another late entry, the outlet will never forgive me.”
Mr. Prez started pacing back and forth.

Donnie watched Mikey silently pulled on his rain boots and coat; while Donnie did the same. Everyone else had long since fallen asleep but not him and Mikey. They’d both lain awake in their bed, occasionally poking the other to make sure they were still awake. Only when the gentle sounds of their father’s snores reached their ears did they know they were safe to move. Slowly they’d gotten out of bed before silently pulling on their boots and coats while doing their best not to wake their brother’s or father. In front of him Donnie watched as Mikey struggled to do up the buttons in his coat. Giggling slightly Donnie pushed his little brother’s fingers out of the way and did the buttons for him; snapping them into place before buttoning up his own jackets before grinning at Mikey.
Mikey grinned back at him and nodded “yeah!”
A second later the 6 year old turtle clasped his hands over his mouth, his eyes going wide in fear tha
Roana Hood: An alerntive Robin Hood Chapter 1It started with a stormy night. The rain lashed relentlessly against the windows while lightning shock the ground and thunder filled the air. In a little house on the outskirts of the village, close to the forest, were 2 young children huddled in the corner near the fireplace to hide from the frightening monsters that haunted the air and threatened to steal them from their kind old grandmother, who was sitting in her rocking chair, smiling at her grandchildren's fear of the natural weather.Roana Hood: An alerntive Robin Hood Chapter 14 days ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Come on children, the thunder and lightning will not harm you. It is merely God moving his furniture around." the grandmother told her children, trying to take their minds off of the frequent storms that had hit their homeland for the past few weeks.

Splinter smiled to himself as he looked over his sons. Raphael and Leonardo were lying on their stomachs while they colored, occasionally shifting to pick up a different crayon from the small pile they had. Donatello use using a chair as a make-shift table while at his feet Michelangelo was using a small box as a table. Splinter sighed and closed his eyes, returning to his meditations. He’d learned long ago that if he wanted peace and quiet he had to distract his sons. And nothing did this better then coloring, not only did it distract his sons but it also provided him with the oddly soothing ‘whoosh’ sounds the crayons made as they passed over the paper. A small noise made splinter’s ears flick towards his sons. “Mikey?”
He opened his eyes, watching as his youngest son pointed to his new headband before pointing to Raph, all the while gently tugging on Donatello’s hand. Donatello looked at him for a moment trying to understand what his little

Breakfast was an odd affair. All around them patrons of the diner eat and chatting; seemingly without a care in the world. In front of him Mikey watched as Leo stirred his oatmeal absentmindedly. He’d been doing that for several minutes now, pushing the slushy grains around without actually eating any of them. Mikey himself had practically inhaled the waffle, eggs, and hashbrowns that he had ordered. Now he sat watching as Leo continued to stir his food, a look of reserved fear flickering across his face. “Leo…..” Mikey kept his voice soft so as not to startle Leo; but also so as not to let anyone else here him. Leo looked up at him, his eyes that of someone who was scared and confused. “I’m……..I’m not hungry.” Leo pushed the bowl away
Medved' Beis II- Chapter 9Ruyak glanced around at the panicking villagers, himself torn between amusement and pity. He raised an eyebrow at a man with a small cartload of jarred fruits as a few of his stock bounced out and began rolling away in different directions over the mud. At first the merchant scrambled to recapture the runaways, then he seemed to rethink his priorities and ended up abandoning the whole cart.Medved' Beis II- Chapter 96 days ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
“Standing around like this seems… counter-productive,” Ruyak said, his face twisted between a concerned frown and an entertained smirk as the man ran away.
“That depends on what we’re trying to accomplish.”
“Well, I was rather hoping to make a point," Kaelin replied slowly from her perch on top of Ruyak's shoulders, “but I wasn’t expecting this much hysteria. I thought most people would still be in their houses.”
Suddenly a small child ran out into the middle of the chaos, looking frightened and confused. She stopped

The savory smell still carried into the office/studio space in the room adjacent, where boxes were currently stacking up slowly but surely. The windows were always open at least an inch or two these days. More, if the weather was permitable. Angel statuettes were gathered up in careful hands and wrapped up in layer upon layer of tissue paper. Despite their falling out, Natasha had come through with those clients who wanted his work. It was a huge blessing that one of them happened to fall in love with his angel series and rush order nearly half of the entire stock. He was in a good mood. Today was a Thursday night.

*Night, on a dark sky obscured by clouds. The woodlands shared those similar to Mareheim’s, yet every turn was dark and foreboding. It’s tree branches unseasonably bare, an ominous breeze scatted the fallen foliage. The moon hung high in the sky, shining brightly, as a lone figure walked through the dark woods. The figure was Mezmo who, for reasons unknown, wandered the forest alone*
Mezmo: *nervously calls out* H-H-Hello? W-Where am I?
*The wind blowing through the empty woods was the only sound. In the distance, the shining towers of Mareheim castle could be seen. Mezmo made his way to the towers, but it seems he couldn’t make progress no matter how far he traveled. Suddenly, a faint light echoed throughout the forest*
Mezmo: *gasps, whirls around* Who’s there?!
*But answer there came none, as a thick fog gathered around his ankles. The fog gathered into a pile, forming an amorphous shape with protrusions resembling wings. A crack of lightning within the cloud

Silently, the door to his room opened as the silhouette of Princess Luna made her way into the room. The shadow itself descended over the sleeping wizard, as her horn illuminated with her magic at work*
Princess Luna: *to the Mane Six* Now, while my subconscious merges with Mezmo's, it will be up to me to find the source of his fears and be rid of it before it gets stronger. But this will also leave my physical body vulnerable.
Rainbow Dash: So what are we supposed to do?
Princess Luna: Watch my body, of course. If it gets out of control, you are to wake us up as soon as possible. Otherwise, both Mezmo and I will be trapped in the dream world forever.

It was Dave’s first day at work, so of course he was running late. He thought he’d left plenty early, but San Francisco Traffic had a way of defying expectations. Not the best way to make a first impression, thought Dave. Late on the first day, not very professional at all. It would be one thing as an entry-level employee, but as a manager…
The building didn’t look like much, but a small, dingy sign said it was the right place. “Rutherford.” It was an older brick building, tucked away in an odd backstreet near Chinatown. The place was in bad shape, and looked almost abandoned. But at least it had free parking. Dave parked his car and hurried to the building’s entrance. Two men wer

She stared at the palette, not moving toward it. She wondered if the proximity Austin held it to himself was a thoughtless action or an attempt to bring her closer. He seemed so distracted by his work, she couldn't tell. It didn't matter much to her; she wasn't keen on getting that close, whether it was intentional or not.
"C-Could you . . ." Evangeline trailed off. Suddenly, she was more worried about being embarrassed by her timidity than anything.
Before she could change her mind, she flew right up to the palette and dabbed the bristles of her brush into the light gold paint. Just as when she had taken the brush, she flitted away immediately before sh

It was going to be different.
The thought repeated in her mind day after day and night after night. Her current location: a bus, cold and damp and old, traveling down a deserted path during the dead hours of the night. Where was she going? She didn’t know and didn’t care to find out. She was free from that place and free to choose where she would live and how, and that is why she had been in buses the past week. The farther away she was from that place the better, and the less she knew of her location, the safer the haven she would soon arrive in would be.
She was balled up in her seat, her legs brought up to her knees and her arms wrapped around them. Her chin rested on her knees as her eyes looked at the back of the front seat. Torn and missing pieces of fabric formed an endless black hole in the old seat, and the feel of emptiness crawled into her insides the more she stared at it.
Her gaze was blank; a dead look that many confused for blindness, a

The sun rose over the land and illuminated the nearby village. In one of the wooden cottages, two human children sat, awaiting the breakfast their parents were preparing. Their mother happily placed bowls of warm porridge on the table when they heard a commotion outside. The father peeked through the window, seeing that the soldiers had come early. The black-uniformed men were pulling people out of their homes and taking their valuables. The father turned and sharply whispered, "They've come early. Sabrina, get the children and go to the bedroom. Lock the door!"
Suddenly, a soldier kicked open the door as his partners stormed in, each holding a blaster rifle. They either wore black caps or helmets, and all had bandanas covering their mouths. "Take whatever you can find.", ordered their colonel. The mother hid her children as a soldier grabbed her. She struggled in his grip as he yanked off her necklace and laughed.

My name is Callum Wood. Your regular lad who lives alone in his small house in Redbank, a cozy little town far out in the countryside of North America. I was nothing special. Just a photographer for the local newsagent who took pride in his work and the people around him. Everyone in Redbank knew each other of course. A small town like that is bound to be cramped with people… and secrets. I was 21 at the time of this story. I had my whole future ahead of me. A life of ease away from the bustling urban cities and highways. “An easy life” I said. Yeah right. It would have been. That was until ‘it’ happened…
I was abruptly woken up by the small sliver of sunlight that crept its way into my bedroom, taunting me out of bed to close the curtains in frustration.
“Just one more hour.” I say under my breath, still half asleep as I make my way back to bed.
Rain and Robots Don't Mix - RPYears ago, a new, somehow sentient being was invented. Small, humanoid robots, no larger than three inches and built to be companions. Soon, it was clear, people began to realize that they were intelligent, feeling creatures, and the production of them was stopped. Despite the protests of a few human citizens, all governments issued laws that these beings posed a risk to humanity - physically, they weren't threats at all, too small and too weak, but the reasoning was that they could interfere with technology.Rain and Robots Don't Mix - RP4 days ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

The young clutch of kitletts crowded around their mother. The day had been long and the night was vastly approaching. The youth were scruffy with their baby fluff- quite the contrast to their mother. She was a beauty in their tribe, and a gentle parent with a great amount of patience under her wing. It wasn’t often that an Owline had more than two eggs in a clutch- but she had been blessed with three happy and healthy children. With a soft wing, she corralled the rowdy bunch closer to her downy fur and into their nest. Nudging them slightly with her beak, the Owline made sure her children were close as she began to settle. The twilight sun was setting, and soon the red moon of Hybris would rise. The children’s small beaks clicked. Night was a dangerous time on their planet- especially in the thick dense woods. Canowls stalked the brush, and the much smaller owlines took shelter high above.

Humans. These frail and fragile creatures. They’re afraid of anything different. Of anything that isn't 'normal'.
Normal isn't staying away from everyone and everything in the world. Normal isn't locking yourself in chains once every month. Normal isn't ripping someone apart with your bare hands and feasting on their corpse. That isn't normal.
That isn't me…
For I'm something else. Something different. Something hideous.
I'm a human. I'm a wolf. I don’t know who I am any more… no, 'what' I am.
I am one of the very few left of my kind. A werewolf. A lycanthrope. Call me what you like… it doesn't change the monster that I am.

Seraph swung his arms forward Flesh changed to feather, and the air accepted his newly formed wings. The rest of his body transformed as well, while hundreds of pounds of water and ice crashed down on his last location. The ground buckled. Ice, stone and dirt erupted from the impact. Dust permeated the air. Nearby buildings collapsed and tumbled forward as a dark black chasm opened where the road used to be. The flaming bird dodged and weaved through the commotion, thinking itself fortunate that he wasn't at the epicenter. Until now Seraph hadn't found a use for his phoenix form, outside of getting around easier. Now however, barely escaping death, and dodging the angry spears of ice that were now forming, he realized just how dexterous this smaller, faster, form could be. He might have to incorporate this as a permanent part of his fighting style.
