I led Will outside, it was pretty tough getting him through the house considering that he was bigger than he had been. When we finally got outside, Will asked "so how do I use my abilities?"
"I don't know, I think that you're supposed to come into contact with your element" I said, I walked over and picked up a hose. I turned on the water by twisting the nozzle nearby and walked back over.
"you ready?" I asked.
"About as ready as I'll ever be" he said with a nervous smile.
"Don't worry, it doesn't hurt, otherwise, I would have figured out how to shift to dragon form on my own a long time ago" I said. I turned the water hose towards him and let go of the tip, the water hit him dead on, but none of it was hitting the ground. "Why is there no water on the ground? you've sprayed more than enough for it to start running off" Corbyn asked.
"Will, any input as to why it's not hitting the ground?" I asked.
"I seem to be absorbing it, I can feel it building up in m

When I woke up, it was still dark. Glancing at my phone, I found that it was still around six in the morning. Still, I found myself unable to return to sleep after lying down for a few minutes. Being a (ex-) student, I supposed that it was hardwired into me to wake up at this time, as I usually left the house ten minutes later to catch the train.
Not sure what to do, I walked out of my 'room' and wandered around the warehouse. I saw several other shapes in the darkness, presumably others who were still asleep. However, the warehouse seemed somewhat empty, as there was much empty space, which showed some signs of habitation, but the inhabitants were nowhere to be found.
I nearly jumped, as someone placed a hand on my shoulder. Reaching for my pistol, which I had finally identified as a walther P22, I whirled around, to come face to face with a human man. As I leveled my P22 at him, he put up his hands and sa

When I regained consciousness, I was in a hospital ward, but it seemed like they hap put me in an 'A' class ward, as the ward consisted of only one bed. This is the most expensive type of ward, and I knew that my parents would not be able to foot the bill.
'Ah, Mr. Tan, you are awake. I am Dr. Lim.' A cool patrician voice cut in. I looked up to see a rather young looking doctor enter my ward. He was wearing a HAZMAT suit. This cant be good, I thought to myself. He looked as if he was about thirty years old. ' You have been out for quite some time,' he continued, holding up a hand, motioning me to hold my questions for later. 'I have good news and bad news. Which would you like to hear first?'
' The good news please,' I responded.
'As you wish. The good news is that although you had a very high fever, we found no brain damage.' I sighed with relief, and motioned for him to continue. He hesitated and

CDC 6:00 AM
I arrived at the CDC to a shocking sight, the whole place looked like a war zone. The parking lot was torn up by gunfire, with my enhanced vision I could see they were high caliber rounds, likely from a sniper rifle. Just how desperate were they, they were using snipers to guard a place like this. The building was surrounded by officers from every level of the city, normal officers, SWAT, you name it.
I shifted to a less noticeable form and flew to the roof, one of the windows was shattered, so I climbed in through it. I immediately wished I had chosen a different entry point as the smell of burnt flesh and gunpowder overpowered my senses and the sight of blood and corpses littered the hallway. I shifted back to my normal form and began to look around, shell cases and bullet holes covered the walls and floors and several doors along the walls were shattered or busted open, as I walked past one door, I saw what looked lik

For the next few nights, I did not sleep. I stayed up and observed the soldier, looking for an opening that I could exploit to make my escape. I found that slightly after midnight, the soldier always nodded off. This was repeated for almost a week, and I could not help but wonder why there was no changing of the guard.

A plan had already taken shape in my mind. I would make my move the next day. Knowing that I would need to be in top shape during my escape, I went to sleep. However, before I could fall into sleep's welcoming embrace, I heard two voices. Interested, I feigned sleep while eavesdropping on the conversation outside. I recognized one of the voices as Dr. Lim's.
' The patient here, has he transformed?' the unidentifiable voice demanded.
'Yes, he has. We shall move him to one of the better fortified rooms tomorrow, to ensure that he does not escape.' Dr. Lim replied.

There had been several news reports on viral outbreaks. The experts had said that it was a new strain of virus, which they called Viscus Morbus. However, the government had acted fast, putting in place travel restrictions and quarantine measures. The populace had been assured that the situation was under control. However, no system is foolproof. Eventually, unknown to the authorities, a few carriers made it through and entered the country, and the rest is history. It was SARS all over again.
It was like any other school day. There may be a virus outbreak, but without word from the Ministry of Education, education must continue.
Cursing and swearing at my phone, whose incessant ringing had woken me up, I dragged myself out of my bed, and looked at the clock. I cursed again. I had overslept, and may be late for school. I hurriedly put on my uniform and rushed to the train station. My head felt

Memorial Hospital, Colorado
2/18/13 11:36 PM.
I decided to fly back to the hospital, I had left my laptop behind and I was afraid they would use it to track down everyone. I had hidden it before they had gotten in the room and I hoped that they hadn't looked around. When I got to the hospital, I saw that they had abandoned the room and left. I flew up to the window that I had shattered and landed. Shifting to Feral form, I followed what parts of the path I could remember. After a few minutes, I managed to find the room, I snuck up to the door and sniffed the air, I couldn't smell anything beyond the remains of the gunpowder that had been used against me. Smiling, I walked through the hallway back to the room, I peeked in and didn't see anyone. I went in and shifted back to normal. Walking up to the bed, I bent down and saw my laptop exactly where I had left it. I reached for it, but stopped. Something didn't seem right, I looked all over the laptop, but

"Sir, can you come down"
I opened my eyes and looked down to see a team of security guards down below. I had apparently flown into Paramout Studios in my fatigue, and they were not happy about it.
"Come down Immediately" the guy repeated.
"I've got a better idea" I said. I backed up a bit and took off running towards the edge. I leaped off, spread my wing (I had shifted to normal a while ago) and took off, much to everyone's surprise. I flew off towards the city. I couldn't resist and on the way there, I flew through one of the O's in the Hollywood sign. I got to the city and landed on the top of a large skyscraper. I looked around for some indicator of a hospital, I found several, unfortunately, none of them were quarantined. I even did a buzz of each of them, none were housing infected. I wondered if the camp I had hit was the place for this area. I flew back to the skyscraper and looked around when

The Warehouse 2:50 AM
I climbed out of bed and walked over to the hole in the floor, the office I was using as a bedroom had long since fallen into disrepair in the days before we had arrived. I jumped down and descended to the first floor where Britanni was waiting. When I got to the bottom, I asked her "what do you mean JB is missing?"
She said "he left sometime during the night, and hasn't returned".
"well then, lets go look for him" I said. We gathered up everything we would need, Britanni was also bringing some combat gear just in case, and headed out. The night was still fairly warm, even if it was almost 3:00 AM, and having fur didn't help matters either. I shifted to feral form and began to sniff around, I had to admit, acting like this was incredibly demeaning, but I knew that Britanni wouldn't be able to pick up the trail as well. I finally got a scent and began to follow it towards the city with her behind me. While we were following

With Storming the Farm over and two weeks before I had to go back to work at the library and back to class, I had a lot of time on my claws. So I did what any guy my age would do, anything that popped into my head. I dont think I made a lot of bad choices, I just may have rushed into a few things. Well enough of that, time to tell you what happened next.
My head felt like crap, a dull ache pounding in my skull. I didnt want to open my eyes. My muscles screamed at me not to move them and my joints popped every time I did move. There was a mild burn in my veins from the adrenaline that was long since gone. Ah, Sams apply named airsoft hangover. Any airsofter get these, the after effects of playing the game.

I'm sitting in my living room, watching TV, but no matter what channel it's on, there doesn't seem to be anything on. "What is this? It's Saturday there's always something," I say to myself. Shutting off the TV, I lay back on the couch wondering what to do next. It's at this moment that I notice that it's deathly quiet. Looking around I yell out "Hello, anyone there?" But there's no answer. I stand up, walk into the kitchen, and look downstairs. I'm beginning to panic at this point, no one ever said that they were leaving. I call out "Hello? Anyone?", There's still no answer. I turn around to step back into the living room when I see that it's gone. Instead, there's the vision of a large field in front of me. Confused, I step through the door and into the field. Looking around, it's the same field that I had seen in other dreams. I turn around to find that the door back is gone and it's just more field.

It was my turn to do guard duty, hence i had decided not to conduct a raid on this day. Guard duty was a very dull job, as it entailed simply standing at the door, and occasionally patrolling the warehouse. Nonetheless, it was an important job, but someone had to do it. The only interesting thing that could happen was that someone would arrive at the warehouse.
Bored out of my head, i dragged a chair to the door, and sat beside the doorframe, in the darkness. I knew that listening to music was definitely out of the question, as it would mean that not my full attention would be placed on my duty. So, i simply sat there and stared at the door, hoping that someone would appear.
Around fifteen minutes later, I hit the jackpot, and I saw a group of virals walk into the warehouse. The lead person, who was a two-tailed blue kitsune strolled in as if he owned the place, and said, "Bonsoir."
I looked up. They ha

Address in D.C
I landed outside of the building that the address led too, it was an office building that was just a few blocks from the Pentagon, which would explain why this place was being used for tracking purposes. I hid around the back of the building and shifted to my new form. I had taken the time that I had rested while getting there to memorize the details of my false alias. I walked into the building and headed to the interview room, I walked in and told him all the details, he said "you're hired" and I walked with him over to my new office. I sat down in the chair and looked around. I was incredibly nervous, I had done this kind of things in Video Games, but had never done it in real life. I was surrounded by people and at any moment I could be given away. But I swallowed the nerve and got to work. I spent the day running errands and doing random jobs. I wound up getting quite a few things about the virus, new names, locations etc.

I had spent the last two day in the train, dodging a few different inspections by using my shape shifting ability to shrink myself down using the rat form and hiding amongst the luggage. I could feel the train beginning to slow down, I had no idea where I was, all I know is that i've been on it long enough to be outside of Colorado by now. I wait till it comes to a complete stop, then walk up to the door. I reach for the handle and open it. I step out only to find that I was in the middle of a major station and there were people everywhere. "oh shit" I said to myself, I turned to climb back into the train when I heard the one thing I didn't want to.
"hey there, what kind of animal are you?" someone behind me asked, I turned around to see a guy about my age staring at me, I could tell he was freaked out.

I woke up the next day in my little bedroom, the guy who looked like a lizard (I didn't know his name yet) wasn't awake but Britanni was. She was wearing a black hooded cloak that reminded me of the one's from the stories, except without the markings. I had to admit, it was impressive she had found them, if she had. I remembered seeing them climb out of a limo the other day, but Britanni wouldn't disclose anything till JB had woken up. I spread my wings an glided down, landing next to Britanni. "hey" I said.
"you sound like you're having a better time" Britanni asked with a chuckle.
"no bad dreams last night, though I still worry for them" I said.
"So, what are we doing?" I asked.
"I won't say until JB wakes up, besides even I don't know where to go from here" she said.

I landed by the roadside, the road was not being used at the moment, so I was lucky, but I had to be quick. The road was a major area, according to Google Earth and anyone could drive by at any moment. I quickly shifted to my human form, and with no time to spare, a red compact went by and I checked to make sure it was safe to go, I ran across the road and went up to the fence. I couldn't use my wings due to the proximity so I decided to climb the fence, when I got to the top, I looked down and cursed my stupidity, I had chosen a fence that led to a drop off into the warehouse lot, so the fall was substantially bigger than the climb. I jumped from the top and slid down the inclne leaning to keep my balance. I hit the dirt below and faceplanted, the landing a bit rougher, and louder than I would have preferred. I had seen the warning against stealth in the email, but I was more worried about attracting attention from people

Luckily, they hadn't seen the news stories about me, but knew about the furry convention. They gave me some food at a discounted price for being brave enough to show up in the store in my "fursuit".A little hateful towards Furries, but I gladly took advantage of the offer and bought what I could afford, hey, gotta do what I can to survive.

In early 2013, a virus known only as Viscus Morbus began to spread. It started out small, just a few people could catch it. It didn't really cause much more than flu like symptoms. However, when a young teen happened to catch it, a gene in his body mutated the virus and caused it to develop many more symptoms. It also allowed the virus to mutate to affect anyone. Worse yet, it created a gene within the virus that affects the Parietal lobe of the brain, causing it to deconstruct the cellular structure of the body and reconstruct it to the desired form of the person infected. Though many are happy that they get the form they've always dreamed of, the ones infected are usually mistreated due to their differences.
Along with mistreatment, many others are usually driven to depression and eventually suicide because of the fact that their no longer human. They believe that it's all over and even then, they are the lucky one's. Though

I put my laptop back in my backpack and stood up to stretch. The view of the city was incredible from the top of the building. I stood there admiring it for a while and felt like exploring a bit, so I hid my stuff in a nook on top of the building and hopped off the top.

I flew around for a bit looking for some stores nearby, I needed to pick up some supplies, I was beginning to run low.

Ben was sitting in the middle of his college classroom
socializing with his friend. Today was the last day of school before winter
break and both of them were excited for the end of the day. They were talking about
who their favorite Pokémon was and why. Ben's favorite was Ninetales, and his
friend Isabelle's was Luxray. Ben's system had been acting weird lately. He
recently had a wild battle with his newly caught Ninetales, whom he had
nicknamed Charm on his Heartgold game. This was weird because Vulpix and Ninetales
didn't actually appear in the game. As the end of the day neared, Ben and
Isabelle decided to have a battle. At the end of the battle, Ben found himself
cornered. His last Pokémon was Charm, but for some reason, he couldn't bring
himself to send her out. It seemed strange but he had fallen in love with the
character in the game even though she was virtual.

He was renowned throughout the Kanto region as one of the best breeders, yet for some reason, he felt that he wanted more from life. He had recently come across a trainer who needed help learning how to care for her Flareon, who had recently evolved, and after that encounter he had become obsessed with obtaining all 7 Eeveelutions. Over the course of 4 months, he bred and raised 4 eevees to eventually become Leafeon, Glaceon, Umbreon, and Espeon. The only ones missing were Flareon, Jolteon and Vaporeon, he currently had the 3 Eevees who would eventually evolve, if they wanted to. James was well liked for the fact that he never forced the evolution, he made sure the Pokemon wanted it before evolving them.
