Chapter 1 - A Friend's Advent
One warm summer evening, at sunset, while all alone at home, I was quietly sitting on the front step. I wore my black jeans and runners, and my plain dark blue t-shirt. I looked up at the blue sky, and choked back a sob. I knew that I was alone, and my family was gone!! I had still been living in this house for 9 years, and about a week ago, I had come home from a camping trip in Golden, B.C., to find the house empty of dad, Barb, and Brandon!! I couldn't find any specific reason why they had left, and found the bags still packed away, nothing missing from the house, and no signs of any violence, which were all both disturbing and more than a little bit frightening. I sat quietly, just thinking about my family.
I had mixed feelings of anger and fear

I am still only 21, my hair is short, my teeth are straight, and my acne, CP, shunt, tube, and scars are all still long-gone, and Mike and I are still very good friends, and everyone is good friends with my friend Merrick. Marc, Judas, Moloch, Curtis, and Dallas are all still normal humans!!)
One warm summer afternoon, while all alone at home, I was quietly sitting on the front step. I wore my old, weathered black steel-toed boots, my old gray camo pants, and a plain black t-shirt. I wore my black leather belt with Cinthorc, the Sword of Justice, at my right side, in it's scabbard. I went inside, up to my room, and grabbed my sharpening stone, then headed back outside to sharpen my sword. After about four minutes, I stored the stone in my belt pouch, sheathed my sword in it's scabbard, and headed down to the school. My friends and Mike hung out by the doors.
We all exchanged greetings, then I looked up to see Katherine walking toward me. I smiled, as we

I looked at the hole in the quarry cliff again, then cast another quick glance around to make sure I was alone. By now, the sun had just finished setting, leaving the sky a pale orange-pink colour. Suddenly I heard a strange, low humming noise. Moving closer to the hole, I crouched, and stayed still, listening intently.
Then, without warning, the sound rapidly spiked, startling me as a loud, deep whirring hum burst from within. Curious now, I shuffled my feet to get right up to the edge, and looked in, surprised to find that I could see the dim outline of the tunnel, due to an unknown light source from somewhere within.
Taking a few deep breaths, I readied myself. 'Here goes nothing!'
Jumping, I thrust my arms overhead as I slid into the hole, feeli

(this is when I lived in Stony. I am still only 21, my hair is short, my teeth are straight, and my acne is gone, but in this story, I still have my CP, shunt, tube, and scars. However, Marc also has somehow used his powers to drain my own healing powers, alongside my empathic mimicry, meaning that while I still have all of my other abilities, I have completely lost all access to them, thus rendering me mortal, which I have been for almost five and a half years now)
Inspired by the story, 'The Crystal Chalice', from 'Ben300', on Deviant Art.
Chapter I - Gabriel's Request
I lay in my bed, wide awake. Countless nights of being cast into the Nightmare's dark, cold netherworld, were slowly starting to take a toll on me.
I didn't know just how much longer my sanity could resist against Marc's diabolical torture. I tossed and turned, trying to get some peaceful rest.
But each time I drifted off, the inevitable darkness would yield the unmistakeable glow of the Nightmare's blood-red sk

(this story follows 'Dragonheart'. In this story, ten years have passed, and my family and friends have all passed away, although I am soon reunited with them)
I lay curled up on the soft green grass beneath a large apple tree in Avalon, snoozing deeply and dreaming of my family. My brother was soaring lazily in the clear blue sky, while a few other dragons, some he and I had earlier befriended, played in the wide open hills and fields. Soon he flew down, landing close by to where I dozed. Smiling, he walked quietly up, and laid a hand on my side, as I opened my eyes a little, and yawned deeply, before turning to look at him, smiling. 'Want to go for a flight, Drake?' he asked, as I smiled. 'Sure, Merrick!' I then rose to all fours, and spread my wings in one graceful motion, before pushing off lightly from the hillside, letting the wind catch and lift my huge dragon wings, sending me soaring ever so gracefully into the blue sky! I stretched and yawned; my wings instinctively flapping

One warm summer evening, at sunset, while all alone at home, I was quietly sitting on the front step. I wore my black runners, black jeans, my plain dark blue t-shirt, and my Oakley 'X-Metal' ice-iridium shades. I decided to go boarding, so I grabbed my OSB Mako skate board, and headed down to the Paradise Valley skate park just outside Stony.
After about 2 hours, I decided to head home. I watched 'Left Behind: Tribulation Force' on DVD, then went out to sit on the front step, lowering my head, and crossing my hands in my lap, then I just sat there for a long time, thinking. I manifested my postcognition, which was the same as Peter's precognitive dreaming, but mine focused on the past, and I could use it while still awake. I had a flashback of the time Drethan had
The Halloween giftPROLOGUE: A good costumeThe Halloween gift6 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
That day there was a lot of people in the shop, since Halloween was very close, everyone wanted to buy a great costume to impress their friends. A normal shopkeeper should be happy about this kind of situation right? But no, Drethan wasn't happy, because there were almost 30 people in the shop, but no one had a desire strong enough to make his special costumes work. He was making a lot of money, but he didn't care about money, he wanted knowledge, knowledge that these people couldn't offer. Just when he thought that the whole day was a waste of his precious time, someone walked in the shop...a very unexpected person.
I walked in the shop, and immediately all the people in there turned and looked at my arm. I didn't care anymore if people looked at me in that way. You know, my arm is made of wood....yes, I lost my arm after a little accident with a chainsaw, and the doctors putted this fake arm on me, just to make me look normal...how ironic.

The class bell rang for eighth hour. The last hour of the day. Skyle had math. He was never fond of math. He actually found it to be boring. He was working on triginometry which seemed to have taken forever.
Fourty minutes passed and Skyle thought to himself " When will this day END?!" Skyle overheard some classmates talking.
"Hey, you going to the Halloween dance?" One of the girls asked.
"Yeah! Of course I am! I'd never miss a chance to hook up with a hot guy!" The other girl exclaimed.
Daydreams - A Dragon Transformation Story Fall had come in full force, a brutal onslaught of wet and cold weather. Derek had been enjoying it, as the cold weather had given him an excuse to stay indoors and play with his new computer. Today was different though. It was one of those late fall days that made him long for summer again, where the sun shone its warmth upon the world and lit it up with brilliant color. The little things added up fast: the bus to school came on time and he got to see the sun rise over the farm fields near his home. There was no wait for the train and he managed to get a seat, and actually get some rest there.Daydreams - A Dragon Transformation Story6 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
And he actually got to school with enough time to have breakfast with his friends.

Nathan was out front of his house. He was a shorter blond kid. He had some friends, as was to be expected from a twelve year old who always stayed at the same school. But he never did much with them, however today was different. He was waiting for a friend to come pick him up.
A few minutes later, his friend's mom pulled up in their car. Nathan opened the door to the house and yelled. "Mom! They're here, I'm going now!" He closed the door and ran off the porch, excided to go to his friend's. He walked to his friend's car, he got in and buckled up as the car drove away.
Nathan got out of the car after his friend. The car was parked in the garage, so they had a clear shot to their bikes. Glad they didn't have to run through the house first, they got on their respectable bike, putting their helmets on.
Nathan was first to ride out, his friend catching up. They rode down the street, making the next turn, going further into the neighborhood. This new road went straig
