Jazz's Night Out - Prize 2/6Jazz the Hedgehog walked down the sidewalk, hands in her shorts pockets. It was night in the city and the streets were empty, except for the occasional passer-by. The full moon shone faintly while the stars twinkled, but it was a shame nobody could watch their brilliance, for the city lights were bright and masqueraded as stars themselves.Jazz's Night Out - Prize 2/62 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Jazz continued down the sidewalk slowly, lost in her surroundings. Bored, she looked at her phone to check the time.
"Aw Crap! "She muttered, realizing that it was already 10:00 and shoving her phone back into her pocket, "I'm gonna be late!"
Breaking into a sprint, Jazz flew down the city sidewalk. After minutes of dodging other passing mobians, she finally arrived at her destination.
She stood before a enormous, neon club called "The Streetlight". The music from inside was so loud that it caused it and the surrounding street to seem like it was vibrating. A line of mobians stood at the entrance behind a red velvet rope. A muscular bulld

I wasn't sure of my own existence. Maybe I was floating within the air, or perhaps I was sinking down to the deepest trenches of the sea. I had no body, and for some reason this simple fact did not bother me at all. That meant I had no need to breath, to feel, to even think. Did time even matter anymore? Did space? Neither did, and I was happy. Happiness was the only atmosphere that surrounded me.
The only detail that bothered me was the very absent heartbeat that was supposed to be in my very absent chest. Where was it? Did I need it? Did I want to accept it back into my existence?
Suddenly the power to think hit me again like a missile. Complete understanding flooded the nothingness that had been there before and rushed to fill my mind with shape. Thin edges of unborn memories began to thicken from the blur. The pages of billions and billions of books that had been utterly destroyed and created again fluttered into the capacity of my mind, then dissolved as they touched

"Look, Daroach." Ordered Doc, pointing his metal grabber from his UFO to a piece of strawberry shortcake, with a pink 'rock' next to it. There seemed to be a fork and knife next to it, and a napkin. "Someone must've forgot it." Spinni snickered, adjusting her huge glasses. They were sitting on a cliff's edge, but the cliff was not so far from ground. "That's not a rock, idiots." Daroach chuckled. "I... It's a... er." Daroach stumbled. "Whatever it is, it's not a rock." Daroach confirmed, nodding. "Whatever. You should get that shortcake Darchy!" Spinni said exitedly, smirking. Daroach blushed at what her companion had called him. ".... Very well." Daroach lunged forward as far as he could, grabbing the shortcake and then teleporting back to where his team was. "Too easy!" He chuckled, immediately stopping and returning to his natural emotionless look. "Hmm, it didn't seem to know we stole it." Spinni said, "It's heading for some castle, shall we follow?"

Soul x Maka part 7Maka stood outside the academy, she'd been given new uniform to wear. She didn't really understand why Death was sending her and Soul to another school but she thought it must have something to do with the people that attacked her. She looked down at the new uniform. It was a black skirt, white shirt, black blazor and red tie. She had her hair up in the usual ponytails. Her arm was still stiff and she had a few stitches but nothing she couldn't handle. She was waiting for Soul. Ever since the attack, she hadn't seen much of him. Was she an annoyance, had the attack fueled the annoyance? When she did see him, he didn't say much and bowed his head so she couldn't look him straight in the eyes. It upset her but she didn't let it show.Soul x Maka part 72 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Autumn Makes Me CryThe crisp air of dawn lingered when I stepped outside to greet the morning. Dew was sprinkled evenly amongst the grass, seemingly bending the early light. I walked down the cold stone steps and took my usual place at the bottom, sitting with the rail against my back, the cold from the stone seeping into the back pockets of my jeans. The street lights were still on, illuminating a yellow light which seemed to melt with the colors of the coming sun. I pulled my pack from my coat pocket; I let out a quiet sigh as I pulled the last cigarette and a lighter from the pack. It's hard to tell whether I'm blowing smoke or if it's my warm breath against the cool air.Autumn Makes Me Cry3 years ago in Emotional More Like This

The waves crashed on the beach as Haru and I walked away from Devonshire's Law Firm. Devonshire was ranting on and on about his stolen stamp today. I just turned away in disgust: we didn't need to steal money because I knew Pay Day. We walked to our black and white house on the beach. On it was a design of Reshiram and Zekrom flying in a circle: Reshiram was on the black side and, Zekrom was on the white side.
The fast flapping of wings told me someone was coming fast. I took the opportunity to make some quick money. Leaping into the air, I placed my paws on the Pokemon that was behind me and used Pay Day on it.
I heard Haru sigh. "We're gonna run outta Pidoves at this rate, Esperanza."

"Don't be afraid..." said a wispy voice. It wasn't even loud, and yet it sounded as majestic as a lion's roar. Nox, now mesmerized by the tiny ball of light that hung in the air, followed it up the floating staircase. Below her laid an endless, pitch black void.
When the ball of light halted at the top of the staircase, It seemed to flicker for a moment. Then, it moved silently across a clearing. No... not a clearing... a stained glass column. Nox's trance was broken momentarily. She looked around her, at the stained glass column. She gasped. Depicted on the stained glass was Nexus.
"Fight for your friends." Was inscribed in the glass.
"Look hard and long. And you will find your light." Said the Light. Nox looked back at the light, and her eyes glazed over. "The closer you get to the light... The stronger your shadow becomes." The words seemed... familiar, somehow. As Nox looked onwards, the light grew brighter. Her shadow expanded across the glass. Then, melting off

Rule #2: Do not have any OOC fights in the chatroom. And do not attempt to be sneaky and use your character to get into a fight with someone else, because such fights must be perfectly in character. (AKA, if your character starts yelling at another character for a problem of theirs, that problem should be an actual problem, consulted with the other character's owner, that the other character has). Those who attempt an IC fight for OOC problems/reasons will be banned (likely permanent). Furthermore, it's the person who STARTS the fight that will be most harshly penalized.
