Lightning leaps over the Behemoth as it lashes out at her, spinning in mid air to fire a few shots down onto its back, making it roar as Snow unleashes Blizzaga on it, large ice crystals exploding on the point of contact. Vanille and Hope stand back and deliver healing spells as Fang and Sazh rush it, Fang spinning and twirling her spear to deliver fast slashes as Sazh fires at its face. It gives one last roar as Lightning slams back down, driving her sword into its head, a bit of blood spurting from the wound as it slams down to the ground, giving out one last pain filled cry as its body disappears in a flash of light

The trembling white shafts lanced the faded drapes and tumbled to the floor in dancing little pools. The light skirted over every thing, the walls, the floor, the dusty old furniture. Specks and motes floated up in to the shafts and glittered giving the whole room a gauzy, earthy, feel. The air smelled of mildew and grit and dirt and flowers. The windows were broken, little glass shards littering the floor under the sills and sparkling like diamonds.
They weren't supposed to be here like this, hiding away in some wretched abandoned house on the edge of a lifeless town, but they were. The night had
My NightmareI was laying in my bed at about three AM, unable to sleep when I heard a strange noise from the end of my bed, I was scared for a second but dismissed any doubt of it being my dog, she always comes into my room at night and barks at my window, as if something's there. Suddenly all four of my dogs run outside barking as the noise carried on, I froze. Fear running through me as the rustling and shifting continued, it coursed through my vains like someone had turned a tap on in my brain and left it on. After possibly five minutes i had decided to confront whatever was there, i counted to three softly in my head and quickly sat up, I forced my faMy Nightmare1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This

But he wasnt in water he was in the white place. Yet the white place wasnt all that unlike being in a pool of water; stagnant and cold and lost. The white place was a place to forget, to put the doll so it was out of sight. The doll didnt know. White swishes came and went, moving the doll about and repositioning it.
The doll remembered when others had been there, and tried to play with him. They tried, but he was broken. So he was taken to the white place whe

I travel this world in pain like a martyr
And still they will make me go farther and farther
I cannot escape, I wish I could hide

A way to control these thoughts in my mind
These thoughts, these mirages I can't help but see
I fear that the demons are consuming me
When they are all gone, I will then be free

Cps RolfCps Rolf was a man defined by one single characteristic, and had been since birth: his utterly ridiculous name. There wasn't much more to Cps besides that. Of course, he had all the necessary features a face should have, such as two eyes and two ears, one nose and one mouth; he was gifted with a neck, shoulders, arms, hands and all the other regular accoutrements of the human body; he often wore clothes except when he was naked, had three meals a day, was perfectly fine when playing cards--but none of that mattered when his name got loose into the conversation.Cps Rolf7 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

There was a spider in the bathtub.
It was a sign of some sort, the scuttling spiny thing. Mr Cross frowned at it for a moment, long enough to wash his hands and dry them, and then left the washroom to meet the boy, whose name was Tom Fox.
Mr Cross could see him from the balcony, before he descended the stairs. He was blond and small and was dressed quite commonly. The only thing at all remarkable about him was that he wore gloves. It was summer and a hot one at that, and it was a curious little detail about the otherwise unexceptional urchin, which admittedly distressed Mr Cross somewhat.
No matter. "Well then," Mr Cross
My Father's FoolI was fifteen when I inherited my father's fool.My Father's Fool7 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
This wasn't something I thought much about at the time. I'd inherited a great deal more from my father upon his death, and I had no idea he'd kept a fool at all. It was an old practice, and anyway, there were other things to think about. To begin with, my father's unexpected death meant that I was no longer a prince but a king. That and my natural grief at losing him, the rituals for mourning and preparing for my coronation, kept me preoccupied for weeks. It was only much later, long after I'd actually inherited him, that I first met my father's fool.

Why I Caught the SandmanHe's not here anymore, but I definitely had a twin once. We were born together and that's what counts. I know it's true, that he's real, because there's a pale scar like the crook of a finger on my hip. That's where the attachment was--it's from the months we spent in the womb together.Why I Caught the Sandman8 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
The only time I was ever foolish enough to speak about my twin brother to my parents I used that worm-like scar as evidence. "You had an accident when you were very young," my mother said. But I could see her eyes trace nervous angles to a point far over my shoulder. I never spoke about him again. My parents, it became clear, were hiding something from me.

My little brother is nine years old the first time I decide to kill him.
During the night, snow fell over the jagged wreckage of our land. In the morning I realize he will follow me outside if I call to him. Like an awkward-limbed colt he'll stumble through the snowdrifts, and I can leave him to the ice and wind in the shadow of a three-walled building. No one will see me. Our father will think he has gotten lost on his own. I too will cry when they find his body. When the mourning is done, however, I will be my father's true and only son. 'Cam,' he will call to me, and I'll kneel down before him.

The old Clans
There have been 25 Clans in the very beginning of the history of the Bloodhounds.
Each had an own typical symbol on the forehead and each had significant characteristic features and skills.
Today most Hounds have mixed up so that the old definitions won't always fit today, but some of them will still work.
Headstrong dominant individuals
Mostly leaders of packs
Calm and thoughtful
Counsellors, offering their advice and impartial point of view
Warriors with great strengths and high endurance, but not the cleverest

• Bloodhounds are no cats!
• Bloodhounds have got only three toes ( plus a thumb)
• A Bloodhound's eyes are always white and empty (except if he's sexually aroused or together with some he lo
