"Hao Jie, I'm the Logistics committee chief, I work behind the scenes, and I'm no actor! Get someone else!" I exclaimed, trying to hammer into the event organiser's thick skull that I had no intension to go on stage. He had spent the past week pestering me to take up a role in the play, as he believed the rumours that said that I was a good actor. The only reason why I let him continue was because both of us were good friends, and I didn't want to damage our friendship over such a petty matter.

I laid curled up on my bed reading a book Father had given me from his ventures out of the cave. The book I was reading was "Lord of the Rings". It was written by a human called JRR Tolkien. I love reading human literature and I would love to one day venture into the towns and cities and see what other literature I could find from the remains of the humans that used to live here.
My name is Ash, I'm a sixteen year old bipedal dragon. I'm about six foot tall, my scales are sky blue as are my wings. I also look like every other dragon, with me having two white horns protruding from the back of my head.

It was a late spring night. All other activity in the house had ceased, but John had kept going. The bright, piercing light outlined his form against the wall behind him. In the dark light, he looked rather plain. He had brown hair that he never attempted to clean up, and wore a standard t-shirt and jeans. Never getting out much, he was quite thin. John was a Junior at college home for spring break. Now it might occur to the reader, why would any college student be home during spring break. Because John is serious about his work.
John was about to finish up his latest computer program. It was a three dimensional dragon he was making as part of a computer degree. This project, was not just any project though. It was the mother of all projects. He was creating the perfect dragon avatar. It would express emotion in all ways, realistically. The scales would look real, muscles woul
Involuntary testingI stared at the computer screen in front of me. All I wanted to do was to close the dratted window, but I knew that was unwise. As part of the school's e-learning day, I was required to sit through a series of pre-recorded lectures, followed by a heap of online quizzes. According to the teacher in charge, attendance would be taken, and those who didn't access the lectures or quizzes would be subject to CWO (Corrective work order). Therefore, playing games was out of the question.Involuntary testing4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
However, I did eventually get bored of organic chemistry, and ended up minimising the lecture that was still playing, and surfing the net instead. I did the usual things: checking: facebook, my e-mail and deviantart. I replied to a few comments and read a few stories. Eventually, an interesting advertisement caught my eye.
It went: "Describing your dragon character is one thing, but seeing him/her is quite another!" It then rattled on about how one would be able to see one's character by using their

These questions ran through 16 year old Josh's mind. His friends had always said he was like a dragon, even earning him the nickname "Dragon Boy" among his group of friends. Regardless of his nickname, Josh himself loved dragons. Even at 16, he had always wished he could meet one. Oddly enough, Josh could actually sympathsize more with dragons than with most humans.
Some of Josh's "dragon-like" traits were the fact that he was a loner. He didn't have many friends. The reason for his having so little friends was because he was very skeptical about new people, even more so than most others. He also hated being around a lot of people. Whenever he was in a large group, even if it wasn't that many people, he always felt too cramped. His parents and teachers thought he may possibly have had some form of autism.

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.

Drethan gave me this costume several months ago but he neglected to tell me that this thing was alive! The first time it took me over, it wasnt pleasant and I lost all self-control until by bull-headedness fought it off. I had been in and out of it a lot and I now have control over it but it still seemed sinister having its voice in my head. Even though it was a large one, I had been able to keep this secret from everyone but my parents. When I told them, they went to confront Drethan (and possibly get costumes of their own) but he was nowhere to be found. Hront
Dragon otherkinThere is a huge difference between physical body and spirits. They are two separate things, and they are not necessarily the same. Take otherkin for example, they are human in body but something else in spirit. You may or may not believe on otherkin but I want you to believe that the soul exists. And if you want a proof well you have to look at yourself.

It all started a month ago. I was browsing Deviantart...you know, the art website were I usually put my artworks on. That day, I got commissioned by someone who calls himself Dragonkin696. He asked me to draw his online persona: a black crystal dragon. Nothing to complex I thought, so I accepted.

While I'm honoured that you'd like to read my works, I regrettably have to inform you that this story has been discontinued after eight chapters and a sidestory merge. There won't be any more chapters in this story, sadly.
I am however working on a new project that will hopefully outshine this old gal - it's going to be released some time in the future, and I hope you'll be there to read that was well.
If you can deal with this story ending abruptly with no end in sight, then by all means read on, and dream.
People dream. It's natural. Daydreams you usually control and you can make them whatever you want. Sometimes they get forgotten, sometimes they spring back to life after a long time, or just a heartbeat. Sometimes, they come true.

As we ran along the track, several of us began to complain about the programme. Obviously, no one had worked out during the holidays. To add to our misery, the track was wet, and the water was constantly splashing onto our legs and shoes, making the running experience worse.
After three rounds around of the track, ninety pushups, dips and crunches later, we dragged ourselves back to class, retrieved our bags and left school, as PE was our last lesson of the day. I knew for sure that my body would be aching for the rest of the week.

Honestly, he was decently mannered, and just desired to keep to himself.
