Secret of the ShadowAdrenaline drowned my muscles, forcing them to press on despite the searing pain that seemed to be tearing my legs in half. My lungs heaved as they took in the precious air, trying to encourage my limbs to make it to the Temple in time. It had been some time since I had been forced to run like this, since the jaws of Death were encroaching upon my person. The Shadows had protected me, keeping me within Their secret graces, hiding me within Their blessings, but alas a time must always come when the Shadows must be cast aside, revealing oneself to the Daylight, he who continually casts his rays upon this cursed land, showing me the memory of the destruction that had happened so long ago.Secret of the Shadow9 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

Chapter Two- Surprises
Hulk had just arrived back to the mansion after his encounter with Shego. The confrontation he had with the beautiful villainess had left him feeling uneasy, for reasons he couldn't understand. In fact he was having extreme difficulty in getting her image out of his head! Hulk remembered her long raven hair, her athletic tall build, her pale green skin & emerald hued eyes, and most of all her beautiful face.
While a part of him made him feel amorous just thinking about Shego, another part was in constant rage for allowing himself to affected by her in that way. Why did I have to meet her? Why am I acting this way? Hulk asked himself as he continued to walk through the halls of the mansion. Much to his surprise, Hulk didn't run into any of his fellow Avenger teammates.
It was a good thing too, because in his state of mind, Hulk wasn't going to tolerate getting chewed at by any of them. Hulk stopped by the library, peeking in and se

Tommy poked at the eggs. He completely ignored the look of shock, and slight horror, on Tonys face. Man, I hate eggs. He muttered.

Steve was in the kitchen, munching and crunching away on a big, red juicy apple, leaning forward with his elbows on the granite countertop. He looked up at the newly installed digital TV that Tony had set up on a bracket attached to the far wall. There was a soccer game playing at the moment, not that soccer had been on the scheduling for today. No, Peter had just illegally downloaded the game, copied it onto a USB drive, and stuck it into the TV. Steve didn't mind. He had no opinion on the Internet or downloading in general.

By the time Steve got through the crowd to find the exit, the hallway was empty. How could he trace Tony when he didn't even know the name of the man that Tony had walked out with? Maybe he was over-exaggerating and worrying over nothing. Tony had looked very self-assured when he'd left... No matter how hard he tried to convince himself, Steve could not quiet the black panic that smothered his reasoning.
While Tony could be considered a formidable ally or a deadly foe in his Iron Man guise, without it, physically, he was in no way superior to anyone in his size range. Add to that the unpredictability of the arc reactor that glowed ominously in the center of Tony's chest... Steve dread

Aiza ran the toothbrush roughly through his mouth for the tenth time that night. He knew that it was exceptionally childish, that even if it had been a guy that he didn't have to be so obsessive about cleaning his mouth out, but he didn't care. He had enjoyed it, and he wanted to wash all traces of that enjoyment from his mind and body. Aiza's cheeks blushed scarlet whenever any thought relating to Rio happened to wander into his thoughts, a fact that made him angrier than it rightfully should have. Glaring, he set the toothbrush down and rinsed out his mouth, turned the light off in the bathroom and stepped into his living room. Aiza had to resist the insanely strong desire to look out his door's peephole, to see if just maybe Rio was out there. But there was no reason that he would be, it was 2:55 in the morning, after all, and there was absolutely no reason for Aiza to want

"A Halloween party, baby!" Tony shouted excited, cupping his face.
"What? Halloween?" Steve's mouth twitched in a sarcastic smile. "Aren't you too old for Halloween?" Tony rolled his eyes.

It was dark outside and a cold wind and slow drizzle set the stage as they waited for their target to arrive. Everyone was alert, finger-on-the-trigger and ready to obey the first order given to them. Until then, lines were ordered into radio-silence.
"So, what's your favorite color, Sir?"
Phil Coulson resisted the urge to roll his eyes. He knew radio-silence meant nothing to Clint Barton unless the situation deemed it absolutely necessary. Absolutely necessary in Clint's opinion, that is, and since that always differed from his own, this was not a new situation of any kind. "Radio-silence, Agent Barton."
Clint's huff was loud and clear over the comm. "That's not exactly a color, Sir."

Thor enters the chamber, noticing the glowing oval shaped artifact that was contained within a barrier that only Odin himself could gain access to whenever he desired.
