The serpent and the rainbowThose verses are yet another threads inwoven into fabric of ether and chaos of trails scratched in the walls of that bottomless abyss, which life is, with the nails of the Holy Grail's pursuers, who has failed, and whose fingers felt it's edges slip away from under it's tips. A thread in a curtain as thick and dense as time, that hides a divine concept away from our sight and that unveils it to the eyes of the brave, which dare to wander where the diseased dwell. Where the sky is red from the blood of the innocents, which rains to supply the river of life and death, to set the grinding wheel into movement. And You fell in that grinding wheel...The serpent and the rainbow5 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
A storm is foretold by silence and followed with it. Silence is gold. I inhale to feed with the wind I breathe. I exhale to seed the sin I stale with. I hold my breath to hark... Accompanied by mechanic accords of thundering, heavy, metal alloys: throughout the silence - WORDS... Throughout the words - NIRVANA.
We have the right to make so

She'd never seen a key so ugly, the gold veneer stripped away by time, letting the dull bronze beneath show. It was larger than most keys she'd seen with a few jagged points on one end and a cross in a large bulbous circle on the other. It was hung on a long leather cord that was so cracked and worn she was amazed it still held together.
She'd been wearing the key for the last few hours after her grandmother had draped it over her neck. She'd been surprised by the weight at first and surprised that the burden hadn't faded yet. As the key rested in the palm of her hand, she could feel heat pulse through the old metal. She shook her head and dropped it, startled by her sudden aversion to it.
She scanned the waiting room again, searching for the famil
Dreams of Cougars It was a harsh winter in Blackwood, then again, all winters are harsh in Blackwood, so this one wasn’t really out of the norm. I was still a young buck, just having lived my 6th spring heading for my 7th and been on my first raid together with my father an my siblings. I hadn’t been anything too exciting really, but we were endlessly proud of ourselves and spent the entire summer boasting about it. In autumn my brother and I had been so filled with ridiculous confidence, we had tried taking part in the rut fights, yet the does had all just laughed at us as we got thrown in the mud again and again. We still had had our share of fun and my sister told us, some of the younger does, who hadn’t yet decided to allow a stag to breed with them, like her, had even found us pretty brave to dare challenging the older stags. That of course made all the many loses a lot better, since in Blackwood the doe chooses when to accept a stag and whom. We do fight, but it’s morDreams of Cougars5 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Dreams of EaglesWhen I was six years old, my father took me and my two siblings for our first raid. My sister had just killed her first wolf and so my father decided it was time for us to start becoming real Blackwoods and head out raiding. My brother, Siegfried, was born the same year as I was and shared my sire, my sister, Brunhild, shared my dam and sire. My father only had two does in his harem, he said it was better to have the trust of two strong, intelligent does such as my mother and aunt, than many silly things that would sell you for a nice rack and the promise of greener grounds to feed on. Glenmore and Silverthorne does were for the fun, but only true Blackwood does were whom you could rely on. I think now, that he was very right about that, but at that time, my brother and I of course had silly bids, who of us would bring back home more Glenmore does and my sister would laugh at us about how neither of us would bring home one.Dreams of Eagles5 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Dagran woke up before the dawn and leaved the Tavern in silence. Only Ross the innkeeper and that fortune teller in front of the Tavern noticed him. He wandered for hours for the island, thinking about the last events, and finally stopped at that cliff. It was an isolated and peaceful place, perfect to be alone for a while; just what he needed. He sat and watched the horizon lost in his thoughts, rough as the waves far under his feet, without a trace of the solace he was looking for.
Tired of his elaborations, Dagran crossed his hands beyond the head and let himself fall backwards on the grass near his two swords, the legs dangling on the cliff. Try to empty his mind was the better choice after all.
In that moment, he noticed that strange dust, like shards of dried petals.
Now it came everywhere.
Dagran watched the floating dust on the lookout. Fortunately the wind took it before it could settle on the grass and it carried the dust over the precipice, to the open sea.

“Nyu really should apologize to Jason-nya,” Beryl suggested with a hug.
“GET OFF ME!” Fregata shrieked while emitting a harsh gale that knocked everyone back in the process. “That does it. Now the real fight starts.” With a sinister smile, Fregata cast off her bloody bone armor and metallic talon claws, both of which proved to be far heavier than they looked. Underneath, the harpy only had a few strips of leather loincloth and some well-placed feathers preserving her modesty. In addition, she also had special anklets and shoulder pads with runic inscriptions.
“Nyo…nyat nyow,” Beryl whispered as she suddenly doubled over and her hair glowed a pale blue.
“Beryl! What’s wrong?” Kiyoko concernedly shouted as she sprinted over.

Demogorgon looked to his right upon hearing Kazu drop a goblin’s freshly severed head onto the floor. The vampire lord betrayed no emotion in his expression as he inquired, “I take it that’s the last of the singers?”
“You shouldn’t need to worry about barbershop or badly sung opera disturbing you ever again, Father-dearu,” Kazu coldly replied. “As for the others, the long hair has been shaved and the twigs have been pruned.”
“And in the end, it was nothing more than a brief annoyance,” Demogorgon apathetically added. “Still,” he wondered, “I don’t recall receiving any intelligence about a Melfar student capable of such mayhem. Now refresh my memory. Who was it that displayed such pointless resistance?”
“They believe that it was…that annoying cat-dearu,” Kazu grumbled.

Her question was simple enough, but her expression said everything as she turned to look at me. She looked almost awed, and I could see a hint of something else in her flashing red eyes. I wasn’t quite sure what though. I moved closer to her to get a better look, and she took a step towards me.
“We go now,” George called to us. “Them might come back, your saw might be out of gas. We no want risk that.”
We drew away from each other, and she averted her eyes. I was slightly confused by this response, as my gaze was still firmly planted on her. But I knew George was right, there might be more vampires nearby, and my chainsaw didn’t have infinite fuel. We had to leave before the survivors returned to exact revenge. This time they wouldn’t be slowed by sleep, and they might even have protection from the saw. If that happened, our trio might well

I immediately shoved the queen off of me and rolled out of bed. "Sirena!", I scolded.
She fidgeted with her nightgown and stuttered, "I...I...I'm sorry! I shouldn't have done that."
I stormed out of the bedroom and into the lounge. "Damn right you shouldn't have! What were you thinking?!"
"I was...erhm...checking up on you. Then I saw you kissing in your sleep...and I....I just had to feel your lips again!"
"Sirena, you're a mess.", I sighed. "Don't you EVER do that again!"
She hung her head in shame. "Oh Michael, I'm so sorry." She fell to her knees and began to sob hysterically. "I don't know who I am anymore!", she bawled.
Having lost my parents, I knew the feelings she was going through. I helped her up and into my arms. "Shhhhhh. Shhhhhh." I rubbed her back as she cried into my shoulder. "I know, your majesty. I know it hurts. But we're gonna get you throu

"I can tell you don't mean me any harm," Luar said, staring down at her knees, "but silently sitting there and ignoring me is a bit rude, even if you did save me somehow. And I swore I heard you speak."
"You did." Daezir looked up from the fire, and for the first time Luar could see his face. There were no eyes, no nose, no mouth. Not even ears. The only markings his face had were three large scars going from the top of his face to under his jaw. "How are your legs?"
"My legs?" Luar rubbed at her leg again as if the question confused her. "They're tender. It's hard to stand though. What did you do?"

After being invited into the house owned by the Valentine family, the two men sat on the couch opposed of the girl who lived here as they waited for the girl’s caregiver who was also Josh‘s ex-girlfriend to return from the kitchen. Seconds later Emily returned to the room carrying three cups of tea and a can of fruit punch flavored Jumpstart. Handing out the drinks to their respective people she sits in the chair next to the other girl, first glaring at Josh then looking to Levi and blushing slightly as she saw his bare chest.
“You always did hate tea but energy drinks sure are new for you.” Josh remarked as his dog jumped on Emily’s lap just as she closed her eyes and took a sip of her drink.
“Shut up will you?” Emily responded opening one eye half way as she sat her drink down.
The room got very tense after that, until one brave soul spoke up bringing the reason for their visit to light.

We rushed down the hall, a door was unlocked, I was hurried into a back room, was told where to deposit my load, and nearly ushered out the door again. I wasn't going to have any of that. When one of the guys, whose name I did not know tried to rush me out again, this time reaching for my arm, I growled, “Back off.” It must have been enough because his partner pulled him away. Having laid my burden down already I wanted to take a moment to reassure Osiris that he wasn't going to be alone this time.
Laying a hand on his cheek, I knew he would he hear me – that Osiris was somewhat semiconscious, “I will be here while you sleep. I promise that you will not become trapped or alone while you have me by your side. You are not alone. I am here.” The last I projected into his mind as I spoke the words aloud. Then whispering, “I will be here, sleeping by your side, but first I must speak to Rose before I do.” Nothing le

“Nothing? You challenged Odin.”
“I only spoke the truth.”
“His leadership should never be questioned, Fenrir.”
They carried on walking in silence, perhaps it wasn't the best decision but you can only say nothing for so long. When you get ambushed it is the last straw.
“You wish to guard the castle yet you left our door open?”
Fenrir looked up at him, “Your more important than the house.”
Stunned Tyr said nothing, they entered. Fenrir curled up in a ball ready to rest it is going to be a long week.
“Don't sleep just yet.”
Fenrir lifted his head up and looked at him.
“You shouldn't challenge Odin. However you did well. We'll train harder during the week, if you win you'll start guarding. Before that I'll make your favourite desert as a celebration.

Fenrir ran, it didn't take long to arrive and once he did everything was perfectly fine. Tyr was clear in view walking while talking to Odin, Geri and Freki were in front of the entrance presumingly guarding it.
Nobody had spotted him yet and Fenrir considered leaving. He was not yet welcomed here if he ever would be. He turned his back and started to walk. At least Tyr was okay.
