You can call me what you want. Scum, monster, beast, whatever. I've heard it all. I know what I am and I know what I do. I don't care how it affects others; it's not them I do this for. I do it for me. You may think it selfish, but it's what I'm good at and it's a great way to live, as long as you follow orders that is. If you don't you end up just like everyone else there, something I'd never want for myself. Lucky me, the way I live makes me the boss till I get back. Out in the field, I can do whatever I please and get away with it with ease.
I guess I can thank my looks for that. After all, who could resist a beautiful silver dragoness? Especially when she has the most stunning curves and hips you'd ever see. My tail was long, my wings large and good for flying. My long slender legs made me a great runner too and I was strong to boot. Everyone wanted me and that just made my job so easy. Just a few bats of my pretty dark blue eyes and a flick of m

Three hours of training, the distribution of thirty Burn Heals to wayward trainers, and stopping three stupid teenagers from getting too close to the mouth of the volcano later, they were all beat. But such was the senior man's job on Cinnabar; he was much more than a gym leader. He took care of the island and its people even the idiotic tourists who liked volcanoes despite knowing nothing about them. At least, though, he could always take comfort in the fact that his loyal team of Pokémon would always be smarter than the brass teenagers who strive for his Volcanobadge.
It was mid-afternoon now, warmer in the sun but cool in the shade of the trees. The gym leader and his team lounged in a grassy clearing, a surprisingly flat space near the base of the mountain. Blaine rested his back against his Rapidash and looked over at his companions. Not far away, his Arcanine, young and arrogant but loyal to the end, snored loudly. A G

That's what her sister had said before turning and walking away, leaving her to be alone in her room, with her cats and her birds all around her.
She could not hear her sister's thoughts anymore, but there was that tone in her voice that was strong enough to show that she believed what she said.
It was rare for Koishi to show strength in her words or expressions, and it hurt to hear that elusive force behind words like those.
But there was something so horrifying about being unable to tell what was going on in the minds of others.
Satori had always some sort of peace with her natural mind-reading because of this -- she didn't always want to have the thoughts of others echoing in her head, but at the very least, she could always out-predict them and, thus, keep herself safe.
Yet, around Koishi, her own sister -- there was this feeling of fear that came with not being able to tell what she was thinking.
She was a gentle, caring person who

A wave of pure blackness crashed down upon the sand, catching a lone Treecko and dragging her into the ocean with its powerful tide. Its victim splashed around desperately, gasping for breath as the sea pulled her below the surface and then let go a few moments after, as if it were only a cruel joke; as if it was just toying with the creature.
Suddenly the vast ocean vanished and the Treecko was sitting in soft, welcoming grass, although she still felt drenched. Water dripped down from her nose and arms, creating a low pool beneath her legs. Taking in a deep breath, she rose and panted. She cautiously took a few steps, weak from fighting the current of the sea.

Pholly nuzzled Desimona's head a bit as she set some breakfast down for her sister. It had been a little over six weeks since Desimona broke her back and Riku and Pholly had been doing all they could to make her comfortable and happy while she healed. Still, she'd been rather restless, well as restless as a paralytic can be. She still hadn't been able to move even a toe since the accident. This had Riku really worried, since they said she should have regained some motion by now, and he'd set up an appointment for a doctor to come by to check her out.
Pholly was terrified that Desimona was paralyzed for life and that it was all her fault and that it was all her fault for taking Riku with her to the salon. If her sister could never walk again because of it she'd never forgive herself. At the moment, all she wanted to do was run away so she wouldn't be a problem for them anymore, but knew that it would only upset them more right now and couldn't do that
Magical LandIt was the first day of spring that felt like it. Itd been a cold year so far, and even though spring (and school) had already started a month ago, it hadnt warmed up at all. Haruko slowly made her way up the winding path, enjoying what little sun came through the trees. It was an old road cutting through the forest, a couple hundred years old at least. The stones were cracked and overgrown with moss, making the steps slippery in places. And it wasnt so much a path as it was a collection of small clearings and a set of stairs leading up to a long abandoned shrine, from where the schoolyard was just visible downhill beyond the trees. Definitely not the safest route.Magical Land6 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

Pholly flicked her ears nervously as she watched Riku, her adoptive father, pace around the living room. He was waiting for Desimona, Pholly's adoptive sister, to come home. She'd gone out alone that morning to train a while. Riku would have one with her but he'd promised Pholly the day before they'd go to the salon in the morning. It was now late afternoon and neither of them had seen any sign of her since they left for the salon. She'd never been gone so long before and it was really starting to scare the pair of them.
"Where is she?" Riku whimpered, lashing his tail back and forth. "She should have been back hours ago."
Pholly whimpered and her ears went back against her head. "What if she ran away?"
"She'd never do that." Riku flicked his tail dismissively at the thought. "Besides, she has no reason to."
Pholly flicked her tail uncertainly. She could have been mad because Riku chose to spend time with Pho

1. How does Your OC get into Gensokyo?
They could be born in Gensokyo, and nothing would be wrong about it. That's a proper thing to do, or having them be born in an alt Gensokyo would be fine. But what I've seen more than half of the Touhou OCs do is be gapped to Gensokyo by Yukari. How exactly did Yukari choose them specifically to be put in Gensokyo? Yukari doesn't just go around making human beings go in Gensokyo, she's trying to save Gensokyo from exposing the youkai to human beings, so why would she gap somebody in? Were they chosen ones? Were they born youkai? Are they some sort of magical creature? Gapping into Gensokyo is an absolute no-no, because if you research Gensokyo deep into the complex stuff, it implies that Yukari is protecting Gensokyo, not causing nauticaul nonsense to annoy people. And, if they did get gapped to Gensokyo for a specific reason.

First Arc Prologue:- Dear Diary
No one knows why it happened but everyone knows how it happened. On the 21st of December 2012, people and locations, seemingly from other dimensions, immediately appeared all over the planet. Within two hours the entire world was aware of the phenomenon that had just taken place. With the intensive media coverage, Earth's natural residents realised that these newcomers were not unknown. In fact, many of them were already famous worldwide. For example, Harry Potter from the same named book series appeared in Hong Kong and Mister Fantastic from the Fantastic Four comic series was found in Sydney. And then there were the locations as well. A tidal wave that hit Iceland was discovered to have been caused by the sudden appearance of an underwater city known as Rapture from the Bioshock video game series.
Needless to say, there was a lot of celebration around the world. Somehow, the barrier between imagination and reality had

A vibrant pink petal, soft and silky as a pup's fur, drifted to the ground, illuminating the stone beneath it. Its glow begun to fade, the edges turning brittle sienna, and it cracked and shattered like a shard of glass, though it was silent as a feather dropping to the ground.
In the distance, light pawsteps grew steadily louder as a young female wolf emerged from the darkness surrounding the wide spread cherry blossom tree. She stared up at its beautiful glowing petals with her multicolored green eyes, rimmed with black fur on the bottom that matched the tips of her small ears and her waving tail. The rest of her fur was a dim white that seemed to be smoothed to perfection; no tuft of fur was out of place.
Her precise paws led her around the smooth, clean surface around the tree, her paws soothed by the cool rock rather than the warmed dirt. She seemed to be enjoying the chilly night; her tail fluffed out to drive out some cold, though she seemed oblivious to it apart fro

The human female was locking up the house and setting up coffee for the morning. A normal night for her; watching TV, snuggling the cat, preparing coffee and locking up the house. Of course, this cat was following her to the kitchen as she was setting up her coffee, meowing for cream.
Opening up the fridge, the human reached out for the cream carton and pulled out a bowl on the cabinet. They poured some of the delicious cream that the cat loved into the bowl and set it down for it to drink. He mewed in satifaction as he finished up his midnight snack.
As the human was locking up, the cat meowed loudly to go outside. She unlocked the door and opened it, the cat walking out and the door shut. The sound of the lock was heard.

I turned from my two friends, Cason and Ashton, only to be attacked by my boyfriend, Damien. He kissed me and I gladly kissed him back, hugging him tightly.
"Hey, Damien! What's up?"Ashton greeted, his lazy mohawk now blue and hanging over the left side of his face.
"Morning, Ashton, Cason."Damien flashed a smile at our friends, and I grinned at his happy green eyes that still made me giddy inside even after going out with him for four months.
"'Sup."Cason said groggily, he never was much of a morning person. His shaved hair had grown out a little since New Year's, and his light black hair was soft and short. He had gotten another piercing on his left eyebrow a month ago, and he gingerly touched it now, obviously considering what kind of new spike he wanted there.
Around us, there were only a few people going into the school, and the rest were going around it to side doors

The smoke then slowly fades away, and they see the two Pokémon both lying on the ground.

They both gave each other one final smirk, and then, in unison, the two fell back on the ground.
This time, neither got up.

The late fall sky was a clear bluish-gray; patches of snow blanketed the lawns and trees I passed.
