Avengers Mini Adventure: Solid Coffee Mini Adventure #2Avengers Mini Adventure: Solid Coffee26 minutes ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
A lot could be said about Natasha Romanoff, she had many titles... some of them laid buried and she rather keep it that way. Out of all her titles, Morning Person wasn't one of them. Natasha always needed at least two cups of coffee to be tolerant enough to be approached by people... Clint learned that lesson a long time ago.
As Natasha walked into headquarters, she could smell the lovely aroma of coffee coming from the break room which meant that either Phil, Tony or Steve had made it. When Tony was needed at S.H.I.E.L.D. he always came in early (per Peppers instructions) and the man made good coffee. But Natasha didn't care who made it, just as long as it was hot and ready to drink.
The red-head walked into the break room, finding Steve already sitting at the table with his back facing her, but no doubt already knew that she was there. Natasha took off
KeroseneHearts11:Million Dollar Houses/The PainterOver the summer, Vic and I moved in together. Since neither of us was going to college, we were able to combine our funds and buy a small house on the same street as our parents. Neither of us really wanted to be too far away from Mike and Alice. Since we were relying on ourselves now, Vic had given Mike his old Camry and we were now using my old ute to get around. Pierce the Veil continued to practice, but they weren’t going to be able to perform any gigs, record or find a label that would sign them until Mike had graduated. The guys had had to get other jobs in the meantime. Vic was painting houses on the richer side of town. Tony had a job at the local KFC. Jaime was interning at Shock Records. His job was rather strategic. He was hoping that after Mike had graduated, he’d be able to pull a few strings and get PTV signed next summer. Erica and I had jobs, too. She was working as a journalist for the local paper and I was working at the local record store.KeroseneHearts11:Million Dollar Houses/The Painter1 hour ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Zar wiatrem podsycony - part1 - zlota jazdaArkin stanął na wzgórzu. Przed nim rozciągało się przyszłe pole bitwy. Jak na dłoni widział obóz Hrinvali. Ustawiali się w polu, dziesiątki wężyków po setki w każdym z osobna. Kawaleria przesuwała się na wschód. Tylko po co, przecież bagna, które się tam znajdują są nie do przejścia. Spojrzał w dół, szukając jakiegoś wejścia. Strome zbocze wzniesienia uniemożliwiało wdrapanie się na górę. Była to pozycja wręcz doskonała. Tylko teraz trzeba szybko sprowadzić jakimś cudem łuczników, a Hrinvalowie już podnoszą sztandary.Zar wiatrem podsycony - part1 - zlota jazda4 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Humans have recently been borne in the world, and yet, they have made waves. Their intelligence allows them to do so much more than common animals. And so, they do so much more.
They have discovered magic, the raw energy of the world, and learned to begin practicing it. They discovered farming, which allows them to stay in place, though the change was relatively recent. Communities have begun forming, but nothing that would be called a nation. Technologies have begun being practiced, such as crafting of tools and weapons.
However, this is not enough. Humans are still scattered, they have yet to discover their way. The Goddess and God of this world, Vi and Sra, have always been somewhat favorable to the humans. They foresaw something that humans could not. And, deciding to play favorites just this once, they decided to pick a champion to accelerat

Durante el día, le gustaba acercarse al acantilado en el extremo sur de su territorio y echarse, dejando una de sus patas delanteras colgando del precipicio. Si el día era bueno, el cielo estaba pintado de azul y la luz del sol, tibia y benigna, le calentaba el pelaje; la brisa marina que acariciaba su rostro y orejas era gentil y acarreaba con sí un gusto salitre que le recordaba los días de nado y pesca. Si, en cambio, el día estaba oscuro, la lluvia que siempre suceder a las nubes le relajaba los músculos y le limpiaba la sangre embarrada. La precipitación también traía con sí el olor a tierra mojada y rachas de viento que hacían que el animal se sintiera curioso y perezoso.
Durante la noche, cuando la lejana luna y las estrellas sustituían al sol, la criatura terminaba su romance con el acantilado y desperezaba sus músculos. Ya fuera que estuviese empapado o seco, el feli

“There are people who deserve your anger,” she says, “and you need to know who they are.” She turns away, her cloak billowing around her.
“Come,” she beckons to us and we follow into the unknown.
I bat a palm frond away from my eyes and glare at Orion’s back. We’ve only been walking for a few minutes, but already the vegetation has changed to bright greens and exotic blue flowers – completely unlike the coniferous pine forests we left behind. Considering the cloaked girl – Zen, that is – Considering Zen’s animosity toward anything remotely resembling speech, I don’t expect her to speak up anytime soon. So, naturally, I’m more than a little surprised whe

"That's today's activity. You have to decide who to look for- and where to find her."
In the end, Natsumi won the majority vote, much to Garuru's chagrin. He decided to at the very least lead the investigation, coming along with (of course), Giroro and Fuyuki.
"These aren't coordinates, either," Fuyuki said, smiling down at Garuru. "Actually, it's a phone number. See how all the streets make up numbers?"
The rest of the eleven were on an extremely high cliff.
"So! Here's the next challenge. Each of you have to take a hang-glider and jump. All of you have to do this. Each person that jumps, $5,000 will be added. Each person that doesn't, $5,000 will be taken out. Got it?"
Johnny: Are YOU the Mole?
"Ahhh guyss...." Taruru whined. He shook his head. "I can't do this!!"
"I don't blame you!!" Keroro cried out.

"N-no, don't be silly" Alice returned a little too fast. She blushed again "You don't mind, do you?"
"No! Not at all!" Taylor flexed his muscles, his cocky alpha male side coming into play. He cleared his throat before jumping casually into the large green hammock that hung parallel to the branch. He yawned and stretched, displaying the muscles in his midriff in a non-too-subtle way. "It's okay to stare" he chuckled, glancing at Alice who was practically drooling "But wouldn't you like to lie down?"
Alice nodded, feeling the heat between them increase palpably. She clambered into the hammock, lying with her head by Taylor's feet. "We should get some sleep" Taylor mumbled, yawning again. Alice frowned "Yeah. I'm really tired. But I kinda feel too tense to sleep. Today's just been so intense". At the

Hazy memories of the films and the happenings fogged my mind. Concentration was not an option. Instead, I felt compelled to just allow myself to watch all the different thoughts, like projections on my fog, fade in and out. Finally, it struck me I popped my head above the clouds and I knew what we had to do. Well, sort of …
All I really knew is, I had to do something. I had the power to do something. I couldn’t wait for them to tell me what to do because I’m not sure they knew themselves. That was clear. They just kept telling me they knew they needed me but never once for what. Everyone has their own part to play and mine was at very least to figure out what mine was.

The Ember AgeHey, did you know? Life started with fire. When the God Zeus created man out of clay, it was Lord Prometheus who gave us the gift of fire to separate us from the other animals. He liked our little arms and legs. He liked the way we danced. That's why he gave us the gift of flame.The Ember Age18 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Life is like a fire, you know. We start off small and weak- the gentlest of breezes wiping us out. But when we overcome the wind, we get stronger. Tougher. Everything around us gets sucked into our vortex of heat and light. But when the wick gets dangerously low, and the molten wax is about to cool, the flame flickers. Just for a second, it flickers. That's when we know it's almost time.
We flicker again. And again. And again, until we are once again weak and feeble. We, the flames, see a face looming closer, and closer. A giant face. The God Hades, perhaps, come to take our burning souls. Then, with a single puff of air from the giant lips, the flame dies out.

They entered the building and were greeted by a waitress with long brown hair tied back into a braid. She led them to a table and placed their cutlery down promptly.
They took their seats across from each other, placing their coats on the chairs, as the waitress pulled a notepad out from her green apron. "Would you like something to drink?"
"Water is fine, thanks," Alana replied with a smile.
The waitress turned to Dakota. "And for the gentleman?"
"Water," he replied quickly.
"Man of a few words, eh?" the waitress teased lightly with a wink as she quickly placed their menus in front of them and swept away to get their refreshments.
Dakota just shook his head and looked at the menu with a smirk. Alana, however, felt slightly unnerved by the brunette's behaviour. The waitress was paying slightly more attention to Dakota and she didn't like it, though he seemed oblivious.

If you had to lose one of your powers, would it be the fire or ice manipulation? I’m not really sure. Probably the fire manipulation. I don’t like hurting people and I’m afraid I’m going to one of these days.
How did you deal with learning about your mutation? It was a lot to take in at first. It didn’t really occur with the fire and ice manipulation so I had no idea until I was told. I just kept getting hot and cold flashes.
How did people in your life react? My parents were really understanding with it. They brought me to Xavier’s school to help me and they’ll come to visit every now and then. I lost all my friends though since they didn’t want to be friends with a freak.
Did you ever get made fun of for dual color eyes? I did a bit. It was mostly kids being stupid when I was younger.
Favorite song at the moment? “It’s Time” by Imagine Dragons.

He helps me up, his feathery black hair framing and slightly covering his face perfectly. "By the way, my name is Railin Denvii. I'm a fallen angel sent by God to see if he missed anyone, which I can see he missed an angel."
I can feel my face getting warmer, which causes Railin's smile to widen. I can tell something is up though. "You're hiding something. What the hell is it?" His expression instantly changes to hostile.
"Do you not trust me?" He moves towards me, and I back up out of fear, right against a tree. "I cannot lie, so I will only tell the truth. I'm a messenger sent by God." He's very close now, his hands to either side of me to keep me from running.

We went out to the backyard, and she pulled me in and kissed my lips "Master," she said, "I love you. I will serve you forever."
I guess you could say I was scared things were gonna go too far, but I didn't want Emma Watson madly in love with me. "Emma, wake from trance now." I said, hesitantly.
Her head swayed, then she looked hopping mad. "You! I won't forget this! I will get you back for this!" She screamed. She charged into the house and out of the front door. I had a feeling I would be seeing her again, soon.

Mike pulled out a small rock and let out one of his knives, striking them together over and over, making a sharp metallic cracking sound. Sparks flew with each hit, and Mike hoped one would catch fire soon so he could regain control of his hand.

“How do you do that?” She asked.
“Painfully.” Mike responded, grumbling a little bit.
Kerosene Hearts 10: The New National AnthemThe rest of the year passed quickly. My eighteenth birthday had gone. Vic had written a song for me, called “Bulletproof Love” about our last day together during the summer. The guys performed it for me and I got a recording of it. They’d all pitched in and bought a group backstage pass for the Falling In Reverse and Sleeping With Sirens concert in the summer. For our music finals, which I shared with Vic, Jaime, Tony and Erica, we performed a new Pierce the Veil song “The New National Anthem”. Vic sang lead and played rhythm guitar. Tony played lead guitar. Erica filled in for Mike on drums. Jaime and I played bass and did backing vocals. We passed with flying colours, getting an A+. Apparently Mrs Johnson was impressed.Kerosene Hearts 10: The New National Anthem2 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Es war natürlich nicht wahr, dass das Wut-Monster keine Familie hatte. Jeder und alles hat eine Familie – und sei es nur für ein paar Minuten. Sogar Steine, obwohl das eine andere Art von Familie ist, von denen nur Leute namens Geologen Ahnung haben.
Doch es bevorzugte nicht daran zu denken. Für es war die Version des Gartens wahr, weil es beschlossen hatte, dass sie besser war. Doch manchmal kam die andere Wahrheit doch zurück geschlichen. Als Lüge, als Traum. Das war sehr ärgerlich und auch etwas anstrengend.
Also beschloss das Monster sich an eine Person zu wenden, die der ‚Hüter der Alpträume‘ genannt wurde. Sie sammelte ungewollte oder verlorene Träume, die sonst keinen Platz in der Welt hatten. Die meisten waren dem Hüter tatsächlich zugelaufen, streunende Träume, vergessene Geschichten oder kleine Götter, die niemand mehr haben w

Vic and I had two beautiful daughters, Summer Corin Fuentes and Victoria Allison Fuentes. Summer was eight and Victoria was six. Mike and Alice were married now, too.

I knocked on the door, coming face to face with my husband.
