"Thalia Kal." Thalia replied. "Skylord."
A teen near the back of the crowd raised an eyebrow. The Captain's eyes narrowed. "A what?" He demanded.
Kevin and Logan exchanged nervous glances as Thalia nodded, holding her ground. "A Skylord." She comfirmed. She bowed her head respectfully. "Skylord Kal, at your service."
"I couldn't care less what your name is! As long as it starts with Skylord, I won't have you on my ship!" The Captain shouted. "Go fly off somewhere else!"
"My ship crashed nearby." Thalia replied. "I've got to get back to Skyhold somehow, and I've got no other choice."
"I'll not be having your kind aboard my ship!" The Captain barked. "Now get off before I make you get off."

“What?!” I cried in surprise. “Your family is coming here?”
“Yes.” Yumi giggled. “Of course they will.” I shuddered a little at the thought of more of Yumi’s kind coming to this planet. What if they were discovered? Yumi didn’t seem to realize what a huge deal it was for an alien to arrive on earth in this way. A whole family of them showing up could cause a lot of trouble and it would be a lot harder to cover up.
“When are they coming?” I asked.
“Uncertain…they need a means to get here first.” She whispered, depression in her voice. She walked to my bedroom and took a seat on the bed, her tail coiling around her and resting on her knee like a pillow that the could rest her elbows on. I followed her in and crossed my arms.
“Wait, then how did you get here? Did it have something to do with that I heard on my way here?”
“Yes!” Yumi exclaimed. “You saw where the object

"Hey, folks!" a cheerful voice said from the off. "Here's Steve again and it has been nearly eight hours since Amanda and Johnny have turned into earthworms. They've spent most of the time boring through the earth in this crate where I stored them, just like normal earthworms do, and I have barely seen them. Well, that is until an hour ago when they suddenly showed unexpected 'activity'."
Steve snickered and grabbed the crate's lid. "So let's take a look what Johnny and Amanda are up to!" With verve, he removed it and exposed the two earthworms Johnny and Amanda had been transformed into. But instead of digging themselves through the wet soil, both their wriggling shapes were at the surface, tightly pressed against each other.
Again, Steve snickered and brought the camera closer so that one could see that both worms had connected their bodies. "Well, well..." Steve mused. "I'm wondering what the

The events of a few hours ago still had not settled with Vixen. Her life as a Spectre was now in the public view, she knew the Alliance would now try and use her to their own advantage. Everything was falling into the place where she didn't want them to fall, but she knew that now she had no power to stop anything. As she stood looking out across the skyline of the Citadel, Vixen thought of what might now happen. If the Alliance were nice they might give her supplies to help with the mission given to her but it was more likely they'd give her a pat on the back and tell her 'good luck'. Either way, she was alone.
Huffing, she turned away from her window and walked over to her suitcase that she gave up on trying to pack after she found out the limit of shotguns she could carry was only two.
“I suppose I could buy more and have them shipped to me while I'm...away” Vixen spoke

Larpa and Tentarvo had founded the IU conjointly, but Tentarvo was considered the political, economic and cultural centre of the Union. Its population and councils contained families from every Union world. A little known fact was that Tentarvo’s supposed affluence was only a fraction of the real IU government; designed to draw the galaxy’s many eyes away from Eadilon’s other planet. The true running of the Intergalactic Union happened on Larpa.

I rush up to her, causing her to cower in her corner again and I stop and think, 'She's still scared, huh? Okay Sirus...calm down...there's no need to scare the poor girl any more...'
I reach out my hand and say, "Yes, I do understand. How are you feeling? What can I do for you? I'm really sorry all of this happened and..."
I stop as Nym raises her hand straight in my face. I look past the hand into her scared eyes.
She opens her mouth and says, "Slow...not...understand...well...Terran."
I scratch my head and then ask slowly, "What is going on?", trying to explain what I'm saying with motions and facial expressions.
Nym stays silent for multiple seconds. It's apparent that she's thinking hard, probably trying to piece together the next sentence.
After endless silence, she says, "Translator broken.", while pointing to her head.
'Translator? What in the world does she mean by that? Did she get the wrong word?'
I ponder what she said. She's thought this through

History of the Ethereal PlaneIn the beginning, there were seven entities that existed. They are known to us as The Seven Luminous Ones. Their entire existence is to this day beyond true human comprehension. They control unknowable power to create and destroy. How long they have existed is unknown, as is whether they have always existed or at some point spontaneously manifested. But at some point, they decided to create. Their first children were the Arcane. As their name suggests, little is known to humanity about the Arcane as well. But the Arcane controlled nearly the same vast powers as their parents. Satisfied with their children, the Luminous Ones entered a period of rest, willing their children to create on their own.History of the Ethereal Plane6 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Kelly lived in the cave with Anepanor for a couple of days and she was beginning to grow tired of it. “Are you ever planning on letting me go?” Kelly asked Anaepanor as they slept and they were conversing in a dream.
“I don’t think I was ever holding you captive if you wish you can leave, but I don’t think your leg is healed enough yet and the nearest human village isn’t for at least two hundred miles.” Anepanor said.
“I know, but I think I should be headed back, not that anyone would care. But, I do have a job and they are probably already looking for me.” Kelly said.
“Then you’re leaving me?” Anepanor asked in a sad tone.
“Yes, I mean I might come back sometime to visit you, but I need to go back home.” Kelly said.
“And when will you be back? Tomorrow?” Anepanor said.
Kelly smiled “You silly dragon, I won’t be back for at least a few months.”

" Hello", she said. "What happened there in Soho with B10,000?"
" We have 10 dead. The Nemesian is the suspect at large. He is helping us with the investigation.", the Venusian agent replied. " It's a similar case with those 2 previous victims. Endorra was very difficult to stop from her evil schemes. She's using magic to weaken us."
