InaniMates“Hey, Donny—you okay?” Beth hugged my arm tightly, smiling up at me kindly. Whatever apprehension I’d felt a minute ago was quickly washed away with love, and I tilted my head down to kiss her on her forehead. She was a gorgeous girl, a little bit short, cure freckles going nicely with her deep auburn hair. She always had an air of innocence about her, even in this fetish convention.InaniMates20 hours ago in Short Stories More Like This

“Y-you..HOW COULD YOU!?”
In an instant, Yuna found herself with her back against the nearby wall, being held by her lab coat collar. Chizuko's facial expression had changed. She was clearly not very happy with what she had just heard.
“C-Chizuko, let me explain!”
“NO! Of all the things you could do, you go and create something that is pure evil!”
Sora, who had been standing at the doorway quietly, tried to intervene.
“Chizuko, I think you should calm down and let Yuna explain-”
“Stay out of this!!”
Backing up, Sora kept herself quiet. It was clear she was not helping the situation at all. Chizuko decided to let go of Yuna, who sunk to ground, shaking.
“I-I can explain. Just give a minute, please.”

Kiryu: Alright, we've analyzed these two mammals, and you know what that means...
Gwangi: It's time for a Death Battle!
Maud Pie sat atop a large boulder, the gray pony resting at her rock farm, her pet rock Boulder at her hooves.
Her moment of rest was disturbed, though, by a large object landing ahead of the Earth pony. Tiny Tiger growled as he set his sights on Maud. Doctor Neo Cortex had sent the Thylacine to get rid off all the natives in this land so Neo could set up his new base, and so Tiny would start with this pony.
“Tiny smash little pony!” Tiny roared as he punched his fists together, a sight which would certainly cause other ponies to run away or faint in fear...
...But Maud merely blinked slowly as she watched, much to Tiny's confusion. Maud Pie stood up as she put Boulder in her pocket. Tiny just growled as he stood in a fighting pose. Well, if this little pony wasn't going to run away, Tiny would just crush her.
Tiny was naturally the on

When it’s down to the wire, when it’s only a few of you left and you’re running for your lives, you feel pretty damn good about the person watching your back. Good enough to maybe give them a sip of the water you spent God knows how long boiling. Good enough to share the peanut butter you've been hoarding and happy as hell that they've been hoarding bread.
I raise the sandwich in a half salute at Tom as he walks by on patrol. “Hungry?” I ask through a mouthful made way too thick by a lack of anything to drink.
“Fuck off.” Tom grins as he says it. “You know I can’t eat right now.”
“Oh come on, who’s gonna know?” I wave the stale bread and wriggle my eyebrows suggestively.

Suddenly, the bottle filled with purple, gaseous substance flew up into the window and hit Seto. He gasped and fumbled with it, just barely managing to catch it. He turned around as Tyler grabbed onto the window edge, an exhausted expression on his face. He stared straight ahead with wide eyes. "That... Was close..." He panted.

I haven't decided if I can trust them yet. Aw what the hell, might as well see if I can earn their trust at least.
Red Robin: You're an anti-hero?
Me: Nope. I just run around shooting bad guys for fun.
I wonder if he picked up on my sarcasm... Of course I'm an anti-hero. I think the whole "killing is bad" moral code that heroes have is a big load of nothing but shit and that putting the bad guys in prison just so they can break out again is stupid as hell. Wait, is Red Robin talking? Yep. I probably should be listening. Oh well.

“So that’s the tallest mountain on the Ring?” he asked Lhamo.
His llama morph, dressed similarly as he was, in tough adaptive hiking boots and vented clothing that could adapt to a variety of weather conditions, nodded. “Yes, sir. Exactly 6,103 meters tall at the highest peak.”
“Huh. Shorter than Mt. McKinley,” Levar said, trying to hide his disappointment.
“Yes, sir. The Groupmind’s reasoning was that it would be safer if the peak didn’t require supplemental oxygen to reach.”
“Figures.” Though given the death toll taller mountains like K2 and Everest had racked up, he could understand the Groupmind’s caution on that score. “Does it have a name yet?

He felt a small sense of freedom when he jumped happily down the steps and into the walkway of the front yard. As soon as he looked up to feel the sun on his face, five jets flew overhead in formation, leaving trails in the sky. He let out a laugh and ran around the front yard with his arms out making plane noises.

Dr. Lyle Pillar was an early riser. Each day, he would wake up hours before the morning’s first light and go straight to his morning routine; slowly moving through the dark halls of the Pillar Enterprises building until he reached his goal. With the flip of a switch in the master control room, just a stone’s throw from the ground-floor entrance, every light in the building would flicker to life, and every machine that kept it at maintenance would begin to emanate its steady whirr. Then, with his task completed, Pillar would retreat downstairs to his well-furnished lounge, where, as was his custom, he would sit for a good long bit and relax in the gloom of the wee hours.
Dr. Pillar did not drink coffee, for he needed no such thing to stay awake in the morning, and aside fr

So who, or what, am I? Well, first off, I will get this out of the way: ask not what I am. You will only be confused, for even I do not know the answer to that question. Am I human? Only partly.

In better days this had been the city of Milwaukee, specifically the Summerfest grounds. Lately though this place had seen more than a few bad days. They weren’t much more than an accident, simply collateral damage from Chicago. The world war and EMP damage around the major cities like Chicago. Meant bad days for everyone. So did the meteor strikes that followed a few years later. While the world may have been able to recover from war it couldn’t do the same for a natural disaster on that scale.

You know my guess about Batman being angry? It was one hundred percent correct. But, luck for me, his wrath isn't pointed at me. Unluckily for Jason, or the Red Hood which ever you prefer, the the storm that was the Dark Knight's wrath was directed at him. Probably because he told me his secret ID.
Batman: Jason, we need to talk.
He didn't sound angry. Which is probably what scares me the most. He's icy calm and on top of that I CAN'T read his emotions from his face. Jason didn't seem the least bit fazed by the Dark Knight's icy command. So, I did the only logical thing that I could
