TPOCT Round 2.1It was too late to regret splitting up with Rosy and Lisa, but that didn’t stop Lee from doing just that. There had to be a kitchen—the affronted judge from their explosive baking contest had said as much—but whoever designed the place lacked the courtesy to include a directory. All she wanted was a hearty lunch, or a sandwich, or even a freaking packet of saltines. For all the baking that had happened in the last hour, they hadn’t even produced anything edible. Now Lee was reduced to dragging her flour-coated self through one identical hallway after another in search of the elusive cafeteria.TPOCT Round 2.16 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

"DNA, what are you doing?"
I advanced towards the kitchen a little cautiously, for the banging and scraping didn't sound so good... Well, as long as nothing was on fire, I could handle it.
"Hello-oh! Sorry for startling you."
DNA blinked back at me and put the knife he was holding back into the stick of butter on the counter.
"Um...what are you making?"
I walked over to where DNA was, but I couldn't make out much. All of the silverware was taken out and there was bread all over the floor.
"If you needed help, you could have asked."
DNA dropped a fork in the sink and dropped to the floor. He started to pick up the bread, all the while not looking at me.
"Ah...you aren't in trouble or anything! I just get worried...since you're new and all."
DNA remained still for a while, then, suddenly, he turned and headed towards a cupboard.
I followed him and tried my best to see what he was doing, but his back was to me. A grating sound made me flinch, then DNA pulled back.

Dreamer: Pt. 2I got back home after a couple of hours spent with Lupa; I stepped into the door just as the sun touched the trees on the horizon, hardly noticing my mother tell me ‘hello’ as I walked in. I mostly just noticed her smiling at me when I glanced up, and I had to smile back. “Hi, Ma,” I said, going over to stand by her as she worked on making dinner. She was cutting up different vegetables for soup. “How was your day?”Dreamer: Pt. 27 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

I nodded. “Got taken in, I know.” I leaned my arms on the counter, sighing. “It scares me, Ma. After all, I could easily be the next person they

Zaphora story first page draft“The tea is ready my lady”, the creature spoke with a deep and gentle voice. His white coat made him just visible in the dark musty room; his face with its troubled expression was lit by the unnatural light from the large open door. The room had many trinkets and tools scattered across every surface, but only one other occupant. She sat very still in her large red velvet chair; the only sign of life from her ancient form was sound of mumbling, just loud enough to hear from a distance but too confused and slurred to make sense of. The creature made his way across the room to her side, his long rabbit ears swayed gently as he walked and the tea set clinked gently with every step. The old woman looked up at her butler with her bright red eyes and smiled. Her coat was also mostly white with black gloves, socks and ears; her tail was rather long and bushy and resembled a white horsehair paintbrush dipped in black ink.

“C’mon Alex we don’t have all Christmas to just get dressed!!!” Jason knocked on the door as he stood outside. As Danny looked himself over in the mirror, he pulled his Christmas hat down lower and straightened up the red trench coat. The green pants went down to be tucked into the black boots. The other guys were dressed similarly.
“OK, NOW I’m ready!” Alex opened the door as the others looked over. She wore a red dress, white trim lined the bottom as the leggings went down and tucked into the black boots. Sleeves also lined with trim went all the way to the palms of her hands where they were tucked into the black gloves. She straightened the hat on her head.
“Does it look decent?” She asked as Jason blushed.
“It looks…Festive.” He answered, his nose glowing. She smiled as she closed the door behind her.

The sounds of elves cheering and music playing echoed throughout the entire town as the homes had lit up once again. They surrounded Jason as he dismounted Commit, and walked over to Alex and the others. Mrs. Claus joined in and gave her husband a kiss on the cheek.
“Aww!” Sira and Faye said. As Jason headed to his friends, they all smiled, clapping with the elves, all but Alex, who stood still, only looking at him with a straight expression. Faye nudged her with an elbow as she and even Santa nodded to him. Alex sighed as she narrowed her eyes at the floor as she walked over to him. She looked up at him and gave what seemed to turn into a small smile. He was just about to smile as well, until-

XandY a Kalos Tale ch1. MawileQuentin couldn't stand the GTS. The people in it were all the same: breeders trying to dump off "Imperfects" like there was something wrong with them, or even other trainers trying to find stronger pokemon instead of taking the time to strengthen the ones they already captured. It was sickening. And yet, here he was among all of the greed and callousness about to trade off his Talonflame that had been with him since day one for the same exact reasons. Lately he had been neglecting it, not giving it the time or attention it deserved, and Talonflame seemed to have lost her taste for battling. He had talked it over with her last night, told her that she was going to go stay with a trainer who could give her the care that he couldn't, and though both of them seemed okay with it that night, here. now, it was a very different story. A few people spoke to him as he nervously weaved through the crowds, asking about her ability, nature, stats, and all of the other questions he hated answering,XandY a Kalos Tale ch1.

The rest of the afternoon was spent moving me into Clark. The dean had given me an odd look for a brief moment before shrugging and pointing me in the direction of the stairs. There was a single-person room on the third floor, normally occupied by one of the RAs, but a lower-than-average attendance that semester had left it unused. I did not complain, having spent a disastrous semester back in California with a randomly selected roommate. I was in no rush to try my luck at the selection process again. The room itself was a plain one; pale brown walls with a blue carpet, a twin sized bed, and a dresser making up the entirety of the furnishings. It was perfect for me, though, as I didn’t have much stuff to begin with and didn’t need or necessarily want a lot of furniture. The room was small enough that anything else in it would make it feel cramped anyhow. Even with what little I had with me the room started to quickly look full.

Breaking the stillness of the room, Red stood and punched the wall, this time not leaving a mark. Our hand was already bandaged and broken from before, so it wasn’t very pleasant, but I think it helped him. Vince pulled us back to sit again, remaining silent, and shut out eyes to try to calm him down. Red was breathing heavily, clutching the broken hand as our limbs shook. I lowered my head trying to block out the pain. I heard Red muttering to himself various threats to Rayne, and as he did, I felt a tear run down my cheek, even though I wasn’t crying…

The moon was high in the sky by the time William finally pulled to a stop. The group stood at the gate to a small but well-built town, bordered to the south by an immense forest. The structure was rustic and humble, to say the least, with a nice cobblestone pathway system running through it. A fountain was situated in the very middle, and off in the distance, Melanie could see the lit-up windows of the Pokemon Center.
“We’re here,” said Ted, proudly. “Santalune City, and off in the distance is Santalune Forest.”
“Very apt name,” said Winston, dryly.
“If we’re heading back toward Lumiose after I take on the Gym,” said Melanie, “I don’t think we need to go in there.”
“You’re not scared, are you?” Sprig asked, teasingly.
“Of course not!” said Melanie, abruptly. “I...just don’t like bugs, that’s all.”

It struck him, as he took a sip, that he’d never once tried to open them.Prologue6 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Tonight, though, he thought he might like to leave.
There was a knock upon the door, which opened before he could rise from the table. He felt a familiar discomfort when the creature drifted in. It looked more human than he last remembered. During the first months of his imprisonment, it had been an almost formless, wraithlike thing, silver and ethereal. It still appeared to glow faintly silver, but it had adopted a nearly-human musculature. Its eyes were perhaps too large, and its face was all angles and cheekbones, but its body appeared otherwise normal.
