The pain was unbearable.
An agonizing wait filled the space between each new drop falling - my face became a burning sea, each new drop a wave of fire. Held in eternity, I waited for the next wave, dreading that fire, but it never came. Instead, scared and angry screams replaced the laughter to which I had become far too accustomed.
The soft familiar sound of leather boots became too slowly distant and the clamor of steel followed. A metal arm grabbed at me. I made myself small; I tried to move away. But the arm grabbed me anyway. Then I heard the voice and stopped struggling. "By the Vault's Perfect Key, what did those animals do to you?"
The hard soil was gone; instead arms of icy steel cradled me.
The pain was unbearable, but that was good... it meant I would live.

Chapter One: Can't Catch a Break
It wasn't easy. But then again, love never was. Love is especially hard when one in the relationship was a demon Digimon and the other a holy Digimon.
It's especially so when said demon Digimon is one of the Seven Demon Lords.
It's even harder when the holy Digimon works for the Great Angels.
It's nearly impossible when the Demon Lord is a double agent who says he's a Demon Lord, but also works for the Great Angels, and thus has to constantly keep an eye out behind him.
But they'd been making it work. Beelzemon, Demon Lord of Gluttony and Kuzuhamon, servant to Lady Ophanimon of the human type Digimon had been making their relationship work for the past few months. While they couldn't be together every day, that didn't matter. The important thing was that their relationship was working and they hadn't been caught by the other Demon Lords. Or the other Royal Knights. Surprisingly, no one had bothered to tell the warriors (Al

In the Dark Area, Beelzemon had just returned and flopped into his room when a certain other Demon Lord sauntered in to see him.
"Hello, Beelzemon," Lillithmon said in a seductive voice. "How was the outside?"
"Get lost, Lillithmon," he snapped. "I really don't like you, and I never have."
"Don't be like that " she said, walking over to him.
Beelzemon's eyes flashed in anger as he lifted his Berenjena shotgun at her. "If you don't leave, we're gonna have to have a membership drive."
"Why's that?" she asked 'innocently'.
"You'll be dead."
Lillithmon gulped out of fear and backed away.
"Go play with Daemon or Barbamon, Lillithmon. Just leave me alone!"
"Fine," she said stiffly. Lillithmon walked out of his room, and Beelzemon locked the door after her. "Man, she's a real jerk. Not kind and not nearly as beautiful as Kuzuhamon," he said quietly. Kuzuha's funny and smart though a little naïve she's beautiful and elegan

Marguerite Butler burst into the Hotel's Saloon. She ignored the angry comments of a man she accidentally pushed to the side and looked around desperately for a hiding place. There was none, at least none that she could reach before they caught up with her. Marguerite turned around, watching the swinging doors she had just crossed, half in fear half in defiance, and took from underneath her dress's bodice a heavy wad of bills.
-"I need to reach Boston in less than a week! There will be five thousand dollars for those who help me get there within that time... two thousand now, the rest when we reach Boston!" she said in a high-pitched and desperate voice.
A group of men began to stand, greed in their eyes, but as one they sat back down, their faces pale with fear as the doors opened and let in a handsome man. He was dressed in a white and expensive leather suit with silver ornaments; his light blond hair was covered by an immaculate white hat. He was soon followed by a group of unsavory

("Don't worry... We'll find a way out of here.") The Female Monferno stated, holding onto the arm of a scared and frightened newly born Riolu.
They had both found themselves in a dark cavern after the new born decided to 'play a game' with the Monferno beforehand and were now stuck, trying to find an exit. The Monferno decided to use her tail as a torch to navigate through the dark corridors.
A rumbling came from behind them as the Monferno felt the small blue 'puppy' Pokémon cling to her in fear. ("What now?") she dared to ask, turning her head in the direction of the rumbling.
A sudden crack from the ground elevated a large stone snake figure, growling towards the duo, ("I had to ask... Run!") Were the only words she could mutter, grabbing the now terrified newborn by his paw tight, and dragging him away... but they were to late...
("Hurry!") She shouted, the large snake too fast for them as he pummelled his body down,

The name hit a nerve.
How could Norn Hannah Kappel not recognize one of her children, one of the girls she helped bring into the world? Now she could see it clearly. Jordan's features: her emerald eyes and pale skin. They were those of her mother, just finer due to her elven blood. Whereas her mother had been possessed of long, red hair, Jordan had shorter black hair. Nevertheless, she was her mother's daughter; she had the same soft smile. Her ears were pointed and her eyes deep and full of purpose just like her father. She was the same height as her mother, just a bit taller than Hannah herself, but she was athletic and fit for combat.
The Norn lowered her face and took the girl's hands on her own. "Child, forgive them! I am sorry my dear child, I didn't know."
Jordan looked a bit embarrassed. "It's fine Norn. I understand the people in the region have suffered. I can't really blame them."
"And yet you do, don't you?" Hannah's voice was but a whisper, her eyes still dow

Hares, Guns, and HappinessNever in a million years did Naomi think she'd be as happy as she was right now. I mean, it's not every day you tackle a purse snatcher into a strange pit, wind up in a bizarre parallel world that looks like Wonderland, and then meet its March Hare and subsequently fall in love him and have him fall in love with you.Hares, Guns, and Happiness6 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
But to her, it actually happened.
Elliot became such an integral part of Naomi's life so fast, it was almost dizzying but then, it was Wonderland, so what makes sense there?
But for the girl who didn't have a friend in the world, befriending the March Hare, Elliot, was the best day of her life. So she wasn't really surprised when she fell in love with him. Or when decided to join the Hatter mafia so she could fight by his side (having a prior knowledge of marksmanship helped secure her place, too).
Each minute Naomi spent with him was worth having to fight and kill her new opponents in Heartland's little game. She shot her enemies without hesitation or fear. Everyth

It most certainly wasn't an attractive little thing, the doll eight year old Naomi Kaname was staring at determinedly. But then, it did have a sweet little charm to it. Its burgundy eyes seemed to gaze back into Naomi's earthy ones and its European style clothes looked a little worn and dirty. But still, the child's eyes were rapt on the doll in front of her, keeping her attention full upon it.
"Miss?" the store owner said as Naomi stared at the doll in a small souvenir shop she passed every day on her way home from school. "Miss May I help you?"
Naomi jumped when she finally registered the voice of the shop owner. "Oh I was just looking at the doll it's really strange "
The shop owner smiled. "Legend says he was a famous king long ago."
"Really?" Naomi asked, eyes lighting up at the notion. Things like this were always amazing to her.
The shop owner laughed. "Nah, it's just a doll. But I had you going for a minute, did

Though she saw, through the light mist, that the badlands and dark forest were behind her, she did not feel at ease as she approached the pastoral fields and homely farms that bordered her destination. There was no traffic on the road.

The town of Canterwall and its attached lands were some of the most bountiful in the country. The land's fertility was both a blessing and a curse. Its bounty brought riches and a good life in exchange for hard, honest work. The curse was the land's location, being the westernmost province of Ustalav. To the west, the badlands of the Belkzen spewed forth bandits and orcs who pillaged and looted. It was for this reason that every citizen was also a local militiamen and held weapons at home. To the south lay the cursed lands of Vyrlich, where the evil taint of the Whispering Tyrant co

Adam had taken Sparkz and the others to the room with himself, whereas Jenna had left Vincent, Veruka and Rupert behind as her Raichu Ross had been clinging onto her head, petrified since the battle between Sparkz and Lucas's Luxray.

It had been a trap since the beginning. She had felt it, but being among strangers she had not been sure they would have listened to her advice. Besides which, time being of the essence, they could spare no delay due to doubt.
Now standing in the midst of mountains of grain they were surrounded by creatures out of some nightmarish Ustalavian folktale, gaunt, skeletal men; their eyes burning with blue fire and their bodies shrouded in black cloth; armed with wicked scythes of clear keleshite design. A dark fog clouded the air and stole the sound from around them. The creatures' numbers doubled their own.
Jordan found it ironic that she had to travel so far from Canterwell, alla the way to Absalom in order to confront her first undead, but as she drew her longsword she decided that she wouldn't allow them to be her last.

Jenna was first to start the show, throwing a Pokeball high into the air it itself bursting open. A beautiful, elegant Infernape appeared from it, standing on her two feet, staring straight towards Lucas battle ready.
Veruka hadn't noticed Flames standing in the crowd, watching on from afar. He hoped that the spar the night beforehand hadn't weakened her for the battle ahead.
"I won't lose to another Infernape!" Lucas stated, throwing his Pokeball "Go BLAZIKEN!"
The Pokeball burst open quickly, from it appearing a Blaziken, mostly red in coloration, with accentuations of beige, yellow, and gray. It appeared to have long, beige-colored, hair like feathers extending behind its head, continuing downward to envelop some of its chest and abdomen. It's small, red-colored face is almost completely covered in feathers. It has a crest on its head with two points, which resembles the letter "V" though because of its shorter "hair" and The V-shape
