The city of Kuala Lumpur: the capital of the South East Asia nation of Malaysia. Its distinctive twin towers shine in the morning sunlight as the sky fills with a multitude of blues, oranges and pinks. Floating clouds above look as if they could be made into large fluffy feathery pillows. The scenery makes one feel at peace with the world. However breaking the peaceful view, the sounds of honking cars and trucks bring the morning rush hour. Highways are packed and lanes are backed up as far as the eye can see with vehicles trying to get into the city.
On one of the backed up highways, an airport taxi is caught in the traffic. Inside sits 18 year old David Harris. The sunlight reflects off of his sunglasses as he leans his head towards the window. He rubs his dark brown hair back over his head and sighs.
Sorry sir. says the taxi driver as he turns around to face the boy.
David lifts his sunglasses revealing his brown eyes, for what?

I stared out from our high perch at Central with the determination of a promise, Fafnir's jaw snapping repeatedly in agitation as she thought about Bradley, her mind set on getting even with him But going into Central needed a plan; what were we to do, and when to do it? This was one battle me and Fafnir both could sense would take more than we had, we had no real idea what we were up against; we didn't know the entire situation and what to expect We needed a leader.
Just as I was contemplating this, Fafnir's head snapped around suddenly and she began sniffing the air carefully, "What's wrong Fafnir?" I asked, the smells of the forest developing a near clear picture of the surrounding area as my DNA snapped. One smell stood out it smelled human, and it was moving fast past us.
Fafnir carefully savored the smell and turned slowly in the direction it was going, *I I know that smell!* Fafnir said steering around and locking onto

The day it began
The sun had set only an hour ago, the stars twinkled in the darkened desert sky; I was driving down the interstate, heading towards a town called Los Alamos, occasionally glancing into my rear view mirror at a distant SUV and then at the silver case that sat next to me in the passenger seat. What was in the case was anyone's guess, but obviously it was important, judging from the fact that the case adorned three different key locks.
I glanced into my rear view for the sometheenth time, and forced back the icy grip of paranoia that was slowly climbing up my spine, making me shudder. I had a job as a delivery girl for "Mr. Eskew's Roadrunner Delivery: Fast, no questions asked," and had been asked to deliver the mystery case to a Mr. Gernero, in Los Alamos.
I hated driving, really, it made me nervous to begin with; but now I was slowly beginning to worry that I might have taken a job that would endanger my physical health I sighed as I recalled earlier that m

Vampires. The most dangerous of beasts. Werewolves were pretty nasty too but only in a full moon. Vampires could do much more during the night and only holy objects had power to weaken them, even to death.
Well that's what she thought...
Anna ran for her life, undead life that should be. She was being chased by a creature, it knew all her moves. Its deep snarl alerted her and made her run but flight was always much better, less energy was wasted. The new vampire hid inside an old factory, there had to be one room the thing couldn't get in.
Her shoes hardly made a noise as she ran, careful not to trip over on the old boards of wood that lay around. The wind blew through the cracks in the windows, making Anna spin around and glance up into the darkness. Nothing. A sigh left her lips as she turned back, only to meet face to face with the creature following her. The girl stepped back, staring wide eyed at the thing that was hunting her.

In 2005 paleontologists found a small scrap of preserved tissue on a fossilized tyrannosaurus skeleton. Several tests and studies found that the flesh contained the almost complete genetic code of what was once a deadly predator. The US government bought the tissue and put together a team combining the world's best paleontologists, biologists, and every other ologist one could think of to attempt to clone the animal. Several other skeletons were discovered to contain tissues as well and soon a large project was made to attempt to bring back the dinosaurs. It was named Operation Titan.

Thorn stretched one of his wings to its full length before shifting slightly in an attempt to get comfortable; by the sound of the birds outside it was morning, but he had no intention of getting up anytime soon, and stretching out a leg he finally found a position of comfort. Smiling to himself, he began to drift back off to sleep.
"THORNACIOUS!" a thunderous voice called, quickly followed by a painful whack to the back of his head. "Get your scaly arse up this second." the voice continued, and Thorn opened an eye to see his mate Xena standing over him.
In his eyes, his mate was more beautiful than any other creature in all the lands. A deep bronze colour were her scales and her horns and chest plates a dark grey that just avoided being black; her scales were littered with deep scars from previous battles which, if anything, made her even more attractive to him. She was larger than him by two clear feet and her wing span could easily cover his entire body, and at times he found himsel

Herodotus on DragonsThe following are the peculiarities of the crocodile:- During the four winter months they eat nothing; they are four-footed, and live indifferently on land or in the water. The female lays and hatches her eggs ashore, passing the greater portion of the day on dry land, but at night retiring to the river, the water of which is warmer than the night-air and the dew. Of all known animals this is the one which from the smallest size grows to be the greatest: for the egg of the crocodile is but little bigger than that of the goose, and the young crocodile is in proportion to the egg; yet when it is full grown, the animal measures frequently seventeen cubits and even more. It has the eyes of a pig, teeth large and tusk-like, of a size proportioned to its frame; unlike any other animal, it is without a tongue; it cannot move its under-jaw, and in this respect too it is singular, being the only animal in the world which moves the upper-jaw but not the under.

The locals grow more restless, ever since the Massacre of the Main Temple in May they've grown more and more aggressive, and Moctezuma is having difficulty controlling them.

Cortez had him in custody for days, and the people rioted all the more for it. Moctezuma couldn't calm them, and now- on his deathbed, having been stoned -he begs Cortez to release his brother. Cortez has obliged, and now we're under siege in the palace. Cortez is furious, blaming Alvarado for causing everything to fall apart. Alvarado claims the Aztecs were calling their gods down upon us.

"On the Evolution of Dragons"
The Diplopterna were among the most specialized, powerful, and successful of all the draconic families. They were the first dragons to exceed a length of two meters in length, and exceed a wingspan of four meters. Other than that, they are often seen as rather generic dragons. However, unlike the other Draconidae the Diplopterna didn't lose all their ankle bones when they lost two of their toes- instead, they had dual ankle bones, which gave them the unique advantage of being able to run long distances- the dual bones acting like shock absorbers, meaning that they were the only dragons able to literally fall out of the sky onto their prey. While early Serpentipoda and Aquilapoda were still evolving in Oligocene Europe and Africa, the Diplopterna were already taking the world by storm- becoming the first truly massive aerial predators since the pterosaurs, and wouldn't be matched until humans developed flight.

"On the Evolution of Dragons"
It was at the dawn of the Eocene, when the global forests were at their peak, but thinning into arid landscape around the edges, that dragons began to evolve into the open position of masters of the sky. The dragon who first developed true bipedalism isn't known, but it made the first step forward. As soon as dragons lost their fifth toe, diversity exploded. The divide between the Diplopterna and the rest of the Draconidae is difficult to define at this time, and there were several important species which were around the world at this time. One was the German Dracovaranus, a rather small arboreal species which is often considered to be the original member of the Aquillapoda- while it has lost the fourth toe, it hasn't developed very far with respects to flight, or to size. Dracovaranus was quite a clumsy flyer, whose narrow wingspan was barely suitable to keep it airborne in the thick rainforest which covered most of Eo
