Species: some type of mammal with some amphibious traits
Backstory: Chives was the odd one out among his people. Being physically weak and argumentative, he would get into arguments with others, especially his extremely conservative (by on the species' typical beliefs' standards) mother. His father generally took pity on his son, but was too much of a coward to intervene in his arguments with his mother. He did attempt, however, to discreetly and passively help his son fit into society better. Chives eventually ended up leaving, with his father's support and good wishes, in order to get an education. After making it through school, however, he never managed to obtain a job. Instead, he grew lazier and lost his good work ethic.
Personality: Chives is rather contemplative, although is easily irritated and often depressed. He enjoys relaxing a little too much, and doesn't appear to know too much about good housekeeping. However, when he finds something that he wants to work on, he devises
Story of a Fox - Part 1The Fox yawned and stretched. She pushed off the covers of her bed and stood up, stretching again. Her tail fluffed out and she sleepily walked into the bathroom, tripping over a small stool along the way.Story of a Fox - Part 17 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
She grabbed her brush and tried combing her hair. Every single time - one lock of hair wouldn't go into place.
"I swear I'll cut that friggin hair if it's the last thing I --"
The phone started ringing.
She threw the hairbrush backwards, it landed in the toilet. The fox ran into the other room, tripping again on the stool and landing on her face.
She somersaulted and flipped upright. Only a few more feet. The fox grabbed the phone.

"YOU'VE GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!!"
Guardians +Chapter 5+"That was incorrect, Sparkie. Try again." Chira's massive claws rapped the ground. "If you cannot access your powers fluidly you will never be able to command anything more than short bursts of excruciating power. Focus on where you want to channel the energy. Force the flow of the power where you want it. You'll have to start out doing small motions to get your body to react correctly, but with enough practice you'll be able to do it without even thinking." Chira demonstrated what she meant as she flicked her tail and created a ball of fire and then dissipated it without even moving.Guardians +Chapter 5+5 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Sparkie sighed gustily. Her hair was a frizzy mess. She was only here because she called her mom and told her she was going to stay at Ella's for the night and therefore had an excuse not to be home. But that was beside the point. Even if it was only the first day of training and they had fought with an evil force earlier, Chira was showing no mercy. It was always 'try again try again try again

"It's not like I asked for this!" Sparkie clenched her fists and looked at the man in front of her. "I'm a teenage girl, and not an especially heroic one! I mean, let's face it: I'll never be anything more than 'cute', I'm never going to make an A plus in my advanced classes without divine intervention, and I'm definitely not going to be able to save the world." She put her hands on her hips.
The man replied, "Well, I didn't ask for the powers when I got them."
She sighed, exasperated, "But why me?"
"I can't really explain at the moment. But let's just say it's not what you think, not a 'wrong place, wrong time.' There's a reason " The tanned man smiled.

Her companion, a lithe blonde with chocolate brown eyes laughed and ran after her. "Wait up El!" She slid to a stop. "Woaaaah. Hey, El, when did this get here?"
'El' stopped and ran back to where her friend had stopped. "I don't care, let's get in!" They walked onto the steps of what appeared to be a temple. It was magnificent, with brilliant columns and elaborate architecture. Gold, silver, and bronze seemed to make up most of the building.
Sparkie struggled to push open the door, "Hey, a little help, Ella?"
Ella was fixing her make-up with the help of a compact mirror, "Oh, I think you're doing great."
Blowing a strand of hair away from her face with a gusty sigh, Sparkie strained against the door, and heard a loud, echoing creak as the metal door opene

The Ancient Ones needed something that would be brave when all others fled, something that would hold hope dear to them even when all was lost. They needed mortals. Yet mere humans wouldn't do the job--their chosen heroes needed the elemental strength of the Ancient Ones.
Five humans were chosen and gifted with elemental strength. They weren't what anyone would call heroes. They lacked the stature, the composure. They fought and disagreed and split apart several times. They cursed their fate and they almost gave in to the darkness.
But when it came down to it all, they were loyal, compassionate, brave, and all too willing to risk themselves for the w

He threw a suspicious glance at the bus driver he was not supposed to see for another three months.
The bus driver stared back at him.

The driver grunted and closed the doors.
Calvin walked up the steps and into the narrow bus.
He cut his eyes from side to side.
Calvin appeared to be one of the first people to have been picked up.
The only other people he saw were Moe, Moes gang, Alex and some other kid with buck teeth.
Calvin sat down with Hobbes, A good five or six seats away from Moe.
As the bus engine revved up and began moving again, Calvin unzipped his duffel bag and began riffling through it.

The rain dampened the strong smell of smoke, but still didn't hide the utter destruction of the town in front of her. It had happened too soon.
"LIGHT ME!" Chaz roared as he swung his fist into the air. His powers responded immediately, sending a burning arc of fire up his arm and into his rock hard fist. The punching 'dummy' that the teens had rigged up for training with Chira flew backwards from the drawn-and-quartered style tie-up they had him in.
Ella watched Sparkie continue the dummy's abuse. "HYYAAAAAAH!" Her right leg brought the stratosphere-bound dummy to earth, Icarus-like, with a powerful strike of lightning.

When he heard heavy footsteps pounding up the stairs, he quickly closed the comic book and hid it under the pillow.
Hobbes cleared his throat, sat up and watched the door.
He expected to see Calvin all beat up. Ya know, black eye, tattered clothes, small limp in right leg, continuous insults that threaten to bring the bully back, stuff like that.
He was, however, shocked to see Calvin enter the room in perfect condition.
He stared at him.
Why, hello, Calvin. he said. Did I miss something?
Calvin glared at him.
YES YOUVE MISSED SOMETHING!!!! He screamed. HOW ON EARTH DO YOU MANAGE TO SNEAK AWAY LIKE THAT EVERY TIME... Never mind! I dont even want to know!

Except for one particular detail.
It was the beginning of summer.
A school bus rolled down the small street, until it came to a yellow house on the edge of the block.
Slowly, the bus came to a stop at the front of the sidewalk.
The very second the bus came to a standstill, there was a large explosion from the doors.

Nearly ripping to doors off their hinges, Calvin flew down the sidewalk and came to a direct stop at the front of the door.
He spun around and faced the bus.

Chira calmly turned her head to face the teenager, "What is it?" She had been trying to coax Ella's powers out, to no avail. The centaurion woman was incredibly frustrated with the young woman at the moment, and she decided a short break away from her would do some good. "Ella, you may rest."
"I can't believe this. This has to be a dream, it can't be real! None of this is logical!" Baylee growled softly. "It doesn't make any sense for me to be drawn into a fairy tale! You can't make me believe!!" He paced around, holding his head in his hands.
Yellow eyes playing some trick in the light, Chira slowly replied, "No, I can't. But doesn't the fact that you were attacked make you believe? The history of your town? Or have the humans forgotten their own saviors, shunned it as myth and bed-time tales? My own existence should prove the truth--I am something you would see in legends and fables!" The temple seemed

Calvin picked up a flashlight, which he had just gotten from a small pebble on the ground with the Transmogrifier Gun, and switched it on, filling the darkened room with light.
He and Hobbes looked around.

It is... Hobbes said, shocked.
Calvin and Hobbes were standing in the doorway... of a kitchen.
It was a very advanced kitchen. There were several electrical items that Calvin and Hobbes couldnt identify preparing food that they also couldnt identify.
Mechanical hands were sticking out of the wall, working with a kind of blood red dough at a counter. Another machine had hammer like devices on them, and were currently pounding down onto something that looked like a dark green pizza without any toppings. There was also a conveyer belt moving across the room. Lined up on it were hundreds of empty bottles. The bottles were moving underneath another machine, which was dropping elect

He just left, sir. Alex said. We were all asleep, and he just suddenly screamed, grabbed his bag, and ran off.
Moe and the other kids nodded.
John pushed his sunglasses into place. Yes, oddly enough, the man was still wearing his sunglasses in the pitch darkness. Earl, and the other counselors were too.
How were these people able even able to see the outlines of what they were standing in front of? I have no clue.

Pop in a disc,
lean on back.
My mouth drops open,
my arms go slack.
The only part of me that shows life is my hands,
which feverishly labor to defend mythical lands,
Or to destroy an alien race,
or to put an item back in its place.
People try to reach me from their mortal plane,
but I neither hear them, nor feel their pain.
Even still, I consider this experience priceless,
I'll keep playing video games 'till I fall lifeless.

Species: Shadowfire Wolf (Winged)
Weight: 195 lbs
Wingspan: 3 1/2 yards from back joint to wing tip
Personality: Brave, serious, adventurous, caring, and quite humorous at times.
Anything Special: He, like the rest of his clan, has the ability to control flames and darkness and is completely immune to fire. Also, he has no claws, since he was born without them. He also rather dislikes having to fight or kill anyone, so he normally just vanishes and escapes to avoid doing so. However, when he has no other choice, his extreme cunning and resourcefulness is what helps him bring down his enemies, dead or alive. He does like to be called anything that makes it seem like he's above anyone else (i.e. "Master").

This little tale I’m telling you could get drab really fast. The following days I didn’t have a whole lot to report. This ‘work’ that Cedric partook in made him have a similar schedule each day. He would make some kind of breakfast for us in the morning and then head off to work, remaining there much of the day. Speaking purely from an observational military standpoint, it wasn’t the best of choices he could have made. With so much time away from his base it could have easily been taken over by another Human, or an alien kitty.
After some time I had gotten him trained to remember to make me some food for lunch and dinner before he left instead of just breakfast. I suppose I could’ve figured it out myself but that wasn’t particularly interesting.
Every day had been nearly the same as the one before. Sit, eat, look around, observe the occasional life form outside of the household and bat at the toys Cedric had picked up at the l
