Superhero meets SorceressSubject name: Lorraine Jett
Ten years since last mission.
It has been a long time since any missions were taken and completed by this elastic woman. So long, in fact, that just after her last mission, Ms. Jett dropped her career as a superhero entirely. She only used her elastic abilities for rudimentary tasks from there on.
Lora simply went back to her old job that previously wasn't always fulfilled 8 hours a day.
She wasn't the only one to change, either.
Her boss, Mr. Richard Hearst had stopped pointing out crimes for her to take care of, and his son, Aaron, had become a teenager and lost interest in Plastic Man comics that usually helped Lora in a few missions. Even her own sidekick, Meredith, had stopped thinking about fighting crime, and had grown to be more like an adopted sister to Lora than a sidekick.
Lora herself thought that crime could take care of itself, like the illegal drug issue. The police would do a better job than she ever did, because after all, C
History of SpireFrom what we know in Myst IV: Revelation, Atrus had believed his Prison Age of Spire to be completely uninhabited from the beginning. I, for one, disagree with that belief. The broken stone palaces look much too intricate to have been there without people to have constructed them in the past. Sirrus believed that there was a violent, xenophoboic civilization as well. Perhaps they were, but also highly intelligent. Whatever the case may be, these points were supported by my constant interest in what those rock palaces would have looked like intact, and possibly inhabited. So, I have written a short story detailing the Age of Spire before Atrus linked to it.History of Spire3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Too long ago to recount, a group of humanoid beings appeared on the world of Spire by unknown means. By then, Spire was no more than floating gargantuan masses of rock and crystal sitting in two thick layers of thunderclouds. Thankfully, these humanoids were endowed with enough intellect to construct a series of palaces from th
The story of Lora Jett AKA LovergumLora Jett, Age 31, was initially a blond-haired cashier at a local candy store, selling pounds of candy to every group of children that arrived. She felt happy pleasing kids, as well as of course earning profits. Her income was quite well, at $750 a month, surprisingly. And yet, Lora did feel a bit jealous during her sales: Candy was one of her best after-school snacks, especially bubble gum, but she was never allowed at least one sample for so much as tasting.The story of Lora Jett AKA Lovergum4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
One day, she was more baffled than ever: A large package had arrived at Lora's apartment porch, addressed to her, from a place called "Draemona" that she had never heard of. Forgetting that anomaly, Lora brought the oddly light box into her living room, sliced the tape open, and was surprised as to what was inside. Two things were there: A letter with odd English handwriting on it, and a bright red rubber cat-suit that reached from neck to toe.
Spreading the latter out on the coffee table, Lora studied the costume,

· Kadish: Of course, what can I do for you?
· K’nehtis: I noticed that you have a talent for art and sculpture building. I could see it in that gallery in Ae’gura, your name was on every piece there.

Author's note: For the confused, this story takes place before Finn discovers Flame Princess, and after Princess Bubblegum returns to 18 years old.
The sun was rising over the ever-sweet country of Candy Land, and the residents were preparing themselves for another great day. Plumpy set about tending his gingerbread plum trees, picking off which plums were ripe and pruning unnecessary branches; Jolly and his miners chiseled away in the Gumdrop Mountains, searching for gumdrops of the highest quality, and Grandma Nutt worked her best to maintain her peanut brittle cottage.
But, a few of the royal members of this country somehow felt that this day in particular would be different, in a way they could not describe. In fact, some of the usually cheery inhabitants felt saddened. One such, Queen Frostine, could not help but stare beyond her usually magnificent Ice Cream Sea,

Also known as "Agent G".
I remember the days when Atrus was alive. He, his friend, codenamed "The Stranger", and later Yeesha, showed me wonderful things. But none caught my attention than the Ages of Ahnonay and Kadish Tolesa.
Yeesha, so I was told, once met the man who wrote both of those Ages: Guildmaster Kadish. He was a member of the D'ni Guild of Writers, but dismissed for unknown reasons. Kadish tried to commit suicide by locking himself in his own treasure vault at the time of D'ni's fall, but then Yeesha altered time, and saved him.
I was now preparing to visit those ages, as I was not satisfied with the Age of Ahnonay. Giving the illusion of time travel, he had a Ferris-wheel-style machine of 4 spheres, but only 3 were in working order. The 4th was still under construction, and was never finished.
Well, I decided it was time to get that fixed. I was a millionaire after all, so helping the D'ni fix something would be a snap.
Airtankgirl: SqueakyI thought I could pass my lunch hour quietly on a bench on the downtown outdoor mall. I watched a female clown street performer making balloon animals and handing them out to children and adults. Watching the balloons swell up and round out from the gas tanks and then being twisted into animals under her deft hands. I smiled in sympathy, I knew very well what it was like to be inflated. I was in a good shape right now, my figure only a little enhanced by my powers. I'd been developing the habit of staying a little inflated, partially to maintain a certain degree of invulnerability and super strength, but mostly out of vanity.Airtankgirl: Squeaky9 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
Still smiling, now more at myself, I checked my watch for my remaining time left on lunch, and frowned when I saw the hands still in the same place they were when I left the office. No, I didn't have more lunchtime available, my watch battery had died. Lucky

Sally was having a dream, a nice little dream. She saw herself floating on a river, looking up to the sun and sky. A beautiful forest surrounded the river. Tall trees, rabbits, squirrels, and deers. She walked up to pet the beautiful deer, it started smiling at her. She smiled back. All the little animals then surrounded her, everyone smiling at her. She walked up to a little white rabbit and started reaching for him, hoping to pet the cute thing....BEEP BEEP BEEP.
"WHAT THE CRAP!" she screamed as she woke up from her beautiful dream and back in to reality. She looked over to the right, looking at her alarm clock. She smack down the snooze button hard. She fell back to bed, feeling tired and exhausted. She felt hot, her nose was c
