The Tale of an Argonian ch.1Gazing towards the distant mountains, Makeo let out a sigh. "Another long day," he said to himself, scratching the back of his scaly neck. The sun was beginning to disappear behind the horizon. It would be dark soon; he had to start making his way home. He stood, picking up the sack he had filled with mushrooms that day, and began walking away from his sitting place.The Tale of an Argonian ch.14 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
This sitting place was located on the northeastern edge of a hill about an hour's walk from Makeo's home. Specifically, it was against a large oak tree on the edge of the hill. He would walk to this tree with his breakfast every morning, then sit and eat while contemplating ways to escape his mundane life. After his morning meal, he would go home and do the day's work, later spending the afternoon hours collecting mushroom caps, firewood, or whatever his uncle needed. Every evening, he returned to sit underneath the tree until sunset. It was the only place where he really felt alone and free to think and dream as he please

Death of Jorge
I stood motionless.
The barrel of my MA37 smoked, leaving tendrils of fading wisps in the air.
And I stood, barely making a sound.
Ever since the last of the Covenant forces in the hangar bay of the Covenant Corvette, The Ardent Prayer, everything's gone too quiet.
I barely made any sound, barely made any movement...
Nor I barely breathed...
I both watched my motion-tracker and the shadows of each and every corner that filled this hangar bay.
And I could feel the sweat crawling down my brow, and each and every part of my body has gone intense.
Because there is this one thing that always clicked in my mind:
I have a bad feeling about this.
But to my relief and surprise, I can hear my COM emitting some static before Jorge's voice ringed out, "Six, meet me back at the Pelican."
It was my only response.
I made one last sweep across the area and checking the motion-tracker before I can confirm myself that its all clear.
With that out of the way, I made my w

Myths of SheogorathSheogorath Invents MusicMyths of Sheogorath6 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
In the earliest of days, in a time when the world was still raw, Sheogorath decided to walk amongst the mortals. He donned his guise of Gentleman With a Cane, and moved from place to place without being recognized. After eleven days and eleven nights, Sheogorath decided that life among mortals was even more boring than his otherworldly existence.
"What can I do to make their lives more interesting?" he said to himself. At that same moment, a young woman nearby commented wistfully to herself, "The sounds of the birds are so beautiful."
Sheogorath silently agreed with her. Mortals could not make the beautiful and inspired calls of birds. Their voices were wretched and mundane. He could not change the nature of mortals, for that was the purview of other Daedric Princes. However, he could give them tools to make beautiful sounds.
Sheogorath took hold of the petulant woman and ripped her asunder. From her tendons he made lutes. From her skull and arm bones he made a

Saejima offered for Seiji and his crewmembers to stay at the BP headquarter dormitories, at least until other arrangements could be made. The Brave Police dormitories were comparable to a small apartment complex, each BP with their own private rooms. The BPs kindly offered to double up in order to accommodate their guests for the indefinite period they would be here.
If Seiji was less than thrilled over this agreement, Deckerd was greatly ill-at-ease over it. He wasn't sure why, but Seiji filled him with much disdain. The black and gold roadster was impulsive, crass, offensive, and vulgar. He never seemed regretful of any of his words or actions. In short, Seiji was everything Deckerd wasn't
A Re-Imagining of the UchihaPhysical CharacteristicsA Re-Imagining of the Uchiha2 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Like their canon counterparts, a majority of the Uchiha are black-haired and eyed in their human forms, something that remains consistent in their Demon and Berserker forms. Being ravens, their Demon forms maintain the scruffy all-black plumage, complete with throat feathers.
Like most shinobi, the Uchiha are fluent in Japanese and English. But when they use the Sharingan, they can instantly learn, understand, and speak other languages from reading a foreigner's lips or handwriting, even something as foreign as Arabic or obscure as Latin. Also, they communicate with each other with sounds they mimic from their surroundingsclicks, beeps, rattling, chiming, etc.
Unlike most clans, there is no rhyme or reason to the names of Uchiha members. They're not named after body parts (like the Inuzuka), anything pertaining to the sun (like the Hyūga firstborn), gemstones (like the Anokudatsu), nor do their names have a set prefix (like the

The weather isn't just sunny, cloudy, rainy, and stormy. There's beautiful vanilla twilights, snows that contain peppermints, alligator skies, and on some nights, meteor showers, kamikazes, a helicopter moon, blue lights that are surprisingly fuzzy, and shooting stars that shine the night. You can even see galaxies in the sky clearly that other places couldn't show even with a telescope.
Now Owl City is an ocean town, isn't it? So it must have a beach. And indeed you are right, Owl City does have a beach, Umbrella Beach is it's name. Why is it named Umbrella Beach? Because everyday, there are many umbrellas on the beach, even if the day before had no umbrellas. If you look out the horizon, you may se

Come swim with the Birds and the Bees
And Gods flying in their threes
And logical Minded monkeys in the trees
Thank you but no Please!
You try to Halt and put it all on freeze
Here is the Daedric Prince, on your Knees
But youve been touched by the Madness
Just Embrace it with total Gladness
For Madness creates Art
A stage for actors to play the Part
Let it find a place in the Heart
Or, face the Retribution and Wrath
Of our rightful Lord Sheogorath
So come dance to the very merry jig
Offer up the yarn, gem and lettuce fig
The cats out of the bag, that dull hag
Laugh at boring old Jyggalag.

Shaking. Everything is shaking. You clench your teeth to keep them from rattling. It's hot. Not too hot, but it is quite noticeable. The rattling of everything around you, coupled with the sound of roaring wind batter your body and make you feel as if you've turned into jelly as you sit in silence, waiting. You close your eyes, hoping that it will help pass the time, but it does not and you open your eyes and look over to a picture of your family tucked away in a panel. Falling, you feel like you've been falling forever.
Everything stops and smooths out, except for the sound of roaring wind and the feeling of falling. A very coarse and gruff voice belonging to an older man interrupts the cacophony of external noise.

It is midday, but the tunnels of the sewer system are dark and humid. Summer rains had filled the subterranean canals, and torrents of runoff rush beneath the outskirts of a city. At one of the system's points of convergence, where the canals combine into a single river, the passageways cease their dark journey and open into a large room, reverberating with the sounds of thundering water. Sunlight filters in through gratings in the ceiling like illuminated daggers. The labyrinth of channels roared with a ferocity that would easily sweep any unfortunate human to their doom; however, humans were not the sentient beings present.
Inaudible over the din, six metallic feet clank along the damp concrete and step into the light of the room. Three Transformers move forward in a horizontal line, shoulder to shoulder. On one side, a hulkin

I awoke to the sound of my alarm clock. A pulsating high pitched tone that made me wish I had some blunt instrument to pummel the object into oblivion. Sadly the only thing within reach was the alarm clock itself, so I slammed my hand down on the snooze button and stared blankly at the ceiling for a moment. I had gotten used to this sort of morning, the dream had become more frequent .....how odd.
I sat up slowly, like undead mummified remains rising from they're sarcophagus. As I stretched my aching limbs I stole a quick glance at the clock. It was still mid-morning.
My old slippers waited by my bed, they were just as dull as the floor they rested on, which incidently was just as dull as my whole room. I threw on a dull robe and strode down the dull hall to the dull bathroom. Did I mention that my house is rather dull?
The bathroom wasn't spectacular. Shower, toilet, sink and many other hygiene related items were arranged neatly around the small room. I

The Second Tale: What's in will someday be out.
Taij had been gone for approximately two hours when Tajina went out searching for him. It was only the second week that he'd been with her, but he'd begun venturing out on his own most times. Sometimes she would come home and see a small note posted on the fridge. Sometimes Taij left a witty comment, other times it was a simple "Check you later". Of course, the contents of the note depended on his mood. His mood in turn, was affected by his music. Yes, his music.

Yet, when he'd come to life, they'd been placed right over his earsstrange thing was, it looked like they belonged there. What was even stranger than the earphones was his personality.

There were some commissars who frowned at the use of beastmen in the Imperial Guard. While Ratlings and Ogryn were generally accepted as useful, if abhuman, beastmen were prone to serve the powers of Chaos and often unrealiable. Yet it seemed to Phokas that they should at least be given the chance to prove themselves. He had also noticed that while the Beastmen lacked the brute strength of Ogryns, they made up for it with their savagery and at times, an animalistic cunning. Other commissars were entitled to their opinion, but Phokas was happy to have beastmen serve under him.
The beastmen had been kitted out in ill-fitting flak armour. They were armed with an assortment of spears, wicked-lookin
