"Bent get up dude mom and dad want to get going like right now." A voice said to me through the darkness of the closet that I slept in.
Without even moving or lifting my head I replied groggily "Tell them I will be down later."
The closet door closed and I stood up; stretching from my head all the way to the end of my tail. M claws dug into the carpeted floor as the feeling of refreshment flowed through me. Kyle, the person who woke me, was downstairs talking to his parents.

The Dragon in Me Part1I was just walking around in the city. It was a wonderful day in the middle of the summer. The sun had just risen and was shining in my face. I had decided to take an early walk and was now on the way home. I was crossing the road when it happened. A car hit me from the side. When I was flying the whole time seemed to slow down and I felt something rush through my body. Then I blacked out and crashed against the wall. The driver of the car just went on like nothing had happened. For my luck the next passenger that saw me called the emergency ambulance. They came quickly and brought me to the hospital. When they found out who I was they informed my parents, who came as fast as the could. When they reached the hospital they were led to my room. I had to look terrible. Several bones broken, bleeding just like every where and to make it worse the doctor told them, that I had a concussion. He also told them that I had likely no chance to survive and they were even wondering why I was stillThe Dragon in Me Part14 years ago in Scraps More Like This

Part 1: Turmoil
A ray of sunlight started to creep through my windowsill, slowly raising me from my slumber. The light, every morning, always seemed to shine directly into my eyes Not a good way to start the day. The room was dark, apart from the light seeping under the windowsill, and every so often, the oak wood floor would creak in the warmth of a new arriving day.
Looking around, I saw my computer, sitting on my desk, and my guitars, resting in their holders just to my left. In front of me, my closet sat, concealing clothes, my guitar amp, and other random little things. To my right, just a few feet away from my bed, sat the closed door, sealing my room from the rest of the house.
I groaned a little and slid my feet into a pair of slippers by my bed.
My name is Alan Douglas Stuttgart. A typical seventeen-year-old guy who was in his final years of high school... About six foot two, brown hair, hazel eyes, a thick, well-trimmed beard, littered with scars, and
A New Reason To LiveSkyle was a junior in high school. He was pretty much considered a nobody. He was constantly picked on by peers and abused by his parents. His father was an alcoholic and almost had no money to support Skyle. Skyle's mother died when he was little and five years later, his father remarried and had another kid. A boy who he named Zack. Zack was the only person who was ever truly nice to Skyle. In short, Skyle's entire life was downright miserable and this is where the story begins.A New Reason To Live7 years ago in Scraps More Like This
The class bell rang for eighth hour. The last hour of the day. Skyle had math. He was never fond of math. He actually found it to be boring. He was working on triginometry which seemed to have taken forever.
Fourty minutes passed and Skyle thought to himself " When will this day END?!" Skyle overheard some classmates talking.
"Hey, you going to the Halloween dance?" One of the girls asked.
"Yeah! Of course I am! I'd never miss a chance to hook up with a hot guy!" The other girl exclaimed.

May 13, 1639. Friday the thirteenth.
Heavy dark storm clouds darkened the skies. The city of Paris was quietly nestled beneath the weighted skies, but it was all but quiet.
Footsteps echoed in the narrow alleys near the Seine River. A figure, dressed in a cloak, was running at full steam. Rain started to come down in curtains but that didn't stop the runner. In the distance behind him, an orange glow was visible. Torches, held high in anger, fear and rebellion created the glow. It was a force out to hunt down the man who was running through the alleys.
The hooded figure's name was Jean Meraux. He stopped to catch a breath. He was in his late forties. He bore a full beard and had a scroll in one hand while a knife was nestled in the other. His breath was visible in the cold night air. He, however, knew he couldn't stay there forever as the force that chased him gained ground every second he stood still.
He started to walk forward again before he paused, taking out
Awaken the Dragon InsideCollege had just been the start for 20 year old JC. He had left home a year ago to go study all the way in Georgia, leaving behind his mother, father, and his seven year old brother, Jake(Whom he had given the nickname "Jakie") as well as his other realitives back home in Illinois.Awaken the Dragon Inside6 years ago in Scraps More Like This
JC had his whole dorm room to himself. It was a normal sized room. On his desk were his textbooks as well as a picture of his family. He was the only one who lived in his dorm so he could do whatever he wanted.
JC lay on his bed, looking at posters of some of his favorite rock bands. Most of them were Linkin Park or Story of the Year. He decided to get out of bed and log on to his computer. As soon as the computer was all booted up and running, he logged on to the Internet and typed into the Google search bar "DragonLuver91910". The first result read, "DragonLuver91910- Springfield, IL, 20". It was the link to his Myspace profile. He clicked on it, opening up his profile. The background to the profile was of

I always liked dragons. The prospect of becoming one was always fascinating to me and reading about things like that online on places like dA was definitely something I'd do. When I was alone. You see, for some reason, I really just don't have the guts to tell anyone.
It's just that I feel that my interests were weird, and I don't think people whom I'd known personally would actually react positively to my obsessions, because liking these kind of things were not something people would imagine me to do. Little did I know that was all going to change...
Well, first, I should probably introduce my former self, when I was human. I was 15 when it happened, and I was in Sec 3*.
I wasn't really to most popular of guys, neither was I really the kind of nerdy, geeky people who'd stay after school to study. I tended to somehow just fill in for the role of faceless, average Joe, the kind of guy to get h

The Mental Side and the Doc's Opinion.
I awoke that morning to a rather uncomfortable prodding. I didn't want to even bother with telling off whoever it was, let alone look to see evenwho it was.
The prodding only got more forceful. I was becoming annoyed.
I opened my eyes and turned my head to see Mike standing at the side of the bed with his walking stick.
"Can't a guy get some sleep?" I asked with saggy eyes.
"Not a chance Al." Mike replied with a smirk.
I buried my face into my pillow after that, hoping that the prodding would have ceased it didn't it only became more of an annoyance after that.
"Leave me alone." I said groggily, voice, muffled by the pillow.
Then, I felt Mike pull the covers away and tug on my left wing. I tossed a bit, trying in vain to loosen his grip. He tugged once again.
"Come on man, get up. The doctor's appointment is in an hour." He stated.
"It better be a house call " I said, rolling in my covers, trying to get more comfortable.

I thought I was just a normal kid. Kept out of trouble, kept myself busy with football, and always making sure I had time to study and get good grades. I guess I have my dad to thank for that. He's always on my back about doing well in school. I know in my heart he means well and that he loves me very much, but at times I hate him for that.
But everything I thought I knew, everything I thought was real, turned out to be one great big fat lie. And that monsters are not just legends, but reality.
And I was one of them.
It all began one day after any other normal day of high school. It was a Friday, I remember that one random fact for some strange reason. Probably because it was the day my life took a turn for the worse.
That's the day I met her.
She was standing right next to my car. I had never seen this girl before, but she instantly caught my eye. I'm not going to deny it; she was hot. Long, curly dark brown hair with equally dark eyes, tanned skin, the

"Hey Hey, wake up."
'Where am I? What happened ohh my head ' I thought in a daze.
I tried re-tracing my steps. Last I remember, I was getting my car at the auto repair shop, driving down the freeway, lunch at Mr. Pickles, strange man knocked out by a metal serving tray Man those things deal some damage, my head was throbbing as if Keith had been yelling at me for hours nonstop.
I opened my eyes slowly and looked around. I was in some sort of cell. The floor was cold and made of metal, as were three of the walls and the ceiling. I looked over to the cell door. Across the hall, I saw large prison cells like the one I was in, filled with terrified people.
"Is he okay?" asked another voice.
I looked to where the voice came from and there sat two men, backed away into the corner of the cell.
Two, terrified looking men sat off in the corner of the prison cell. I backed away into a corner opposite of them.
"He lives." Said the one. "I

My phone sounded off its alarm, signaling me to get off my lazy butt and head off to San Francisco.
I smiled warmly, anxiously awaiting my first ever school trip.
My biology teacher, Ms Ferguson, had booked a dozen plane tickets to head off to the swamps in the northern most tip of Australia.
I grabbed my backpack from the kitchen, said goodbye to my mom, and headed out the door.
I grabbed my car keys from the key rack, and hopped into my 1994 Honda Prelude.
I turned the key and the engine fired. This was going to be one heck of a few weeks. Eight thousand miles from San Francisco to Aurukun, Australia, so a long trip Good thing my phone was filled with music.
I merged with the 101 freeway when my phone buzzed me.
"Hello?" I called as I clicked 'answer' on my phone.
"Al? Where are you?"
"Getting on the freeway, why?"
"You are one lucky kid. The plane was scheduled to leave about an hour ago, thankfully for you, it was delayed."

"It's here!" I mentally screamed, jumping off the chair in excitement.
I rushed over to the door, opening it violently to see a rather shocked looking delivery man, standing at the door way with a large, brown parcel in his hands.
Without even asking, I grabbed the clipboard from his hands and signed in the appropriate places, before grabbing the parcel from him and slamming the door in his face.
I eyed him through the peephole as he checked the details of his clipboard carefully, before turning away to his truck to deliver his next set of items.
I quite literally whooped in joy as I turned to open the parcel, for I had been anticipating the arrival of this costume for a week.
A week back, I had been searching the Internet for a place to get a costume for the upcoming Halloween party that my friend, Gerald, was planning to host.
Upon chance, I managed to come across a website selling cheap costumes, with the highest prices being only about
The Dragon in Me part2When I woke up the next morning the sun was shining through my window. My watch showed 8:32 and because my whole family sleeps pretty long on weekends I was the first one up. I got out of my bed and went down the stairs into the kitchen. I opened the fridge took out the milk and warmed it up on the stove. When it was warm enough I poured it into a bowl. Then I got the box with the breakfast cereals and put some of them into the milk. This was my usual breakfast that I eat nearly every day. Although it tasted like it ever had there was something different to the feeling that I head while eating. Just like there was something missing that would make the food really enjoyable. It was the first time when I realized that I had not only changed in the way how I look. When I thought of it I noticed that my brain, or at least the most primitive parts of it, told me to eat meat. It wasn't like I could only be satisfied by eating meat. I could still eat other things like vegetables or fruits andThe Dragon in Me part24 years ago in Scraps More Like This
Origins. -Preview-It’s cold... dark... where am I?Origins. -Preview-10 months ago in Scraps More Like This
I opened my eyes to the world around me. There wasn’t very much to look at in the first place, considering that it was already nothing but pitch black, but it was something. Fumbling around the dark, hard interior of what seemed to be a holding cell I groped the floor and crawled forward, getting a feel of where I was. For one, it was a concrete floor, judging by the texture of the material below me, and with a few more centimetres of blind crawling, I bumped into a wall. I turned the other way and found that wherever I was, it must have been a pretty small area because it didn’t take long for me to hit the opposite wall.
I crawled up to another wall and sat there. Again, where was I? The interior of this dark prison smelled of antiseptic, akin to a hospital, yet without any source of illumination, I could hardly tell if it was a hospital or not. My gut feeling told me that where I currently was currently in anything but a hospital, bu

It had been two weeks since I sent genetic labs an e-mail warning them not to begin those experiments again, I only hope they heeded my warnings, as I had returned to New York state to try and monitor what they were doing and how they planned to pull of this public stunt with making Jurassic park a reality. I had found myself a small cave in a hilly region near Minnewaska State Park. They had rebuilt the research lab on the outskirts of a town called Albany.
So far I hadnt seen anything that showed signs of continuing Dr. Ds research but I remained on guard. In the week I had been staking out the research facility, I had identified two people who seemed to know everything that was happening concerning their dinosaur project. And I was planning a capture of one of them to find out what they were planning....
Dr. Anderson, Progress report I ordered as I entered the lab assigned to the dinosaur project.

Highlands of Scotland
Hi my name is Malcolm and I'm a dragon. But I wasn't born a dragon, no I was a victim of a genetic experiment by an American company called Genetic Laboratories. Richard who authorised the experiment I regret in my anger for revenge he died when I destroyed their labs. Dr. D I hoped was still locked up in a maximum security prison. I left the states and flew back to home to Scotland.
I had found myself a nice cosy cave (by my new standards) to live in, in the highlands of Scotland. I also arranged to let my parents and relatives know the truth, since Richard had my former human body cloned and sent it home saying I had died in a tragic accident. As much as they were relieved to discover I was still alive they were horrified to learn what had actually happened to me. But they still supported me and they helped me keep some kind of contact to the outside world.
So here I am five years later lying down in my cave with my laptop

I dumped her next to a grill I had built (I still preferred my meat cooked) and started a fire.

"What..?" She said lifting herself up and looking around my cave. She noticed my computer equipment I had brought over from my home in Scotland..... "Where am I?" She said more to herself than anyone else.
"Welcome to my little home from home....Ms Robertson I presume?" I said staying in the shadows.

Laurence and Mitchell were both sitting on the floor of Laurences bedroom, both in front of a different television, both playing Super Smash Bros. Laurence was playing the Melee version and Mitchell was playing the Brawl version. They were arguing, as usual, about whose character was the best.
Laurence played the Melee version because it had Mewtwo in it. Mewtwo was his favorite character and he never played the game as anyone else. Mitchell played the Brawl version because it had Lucario in it and, like Laurence for Mewtwo, Lucario was his absolute favorite character and only played the game as him.
Even though theyd already beaten their games countless times over, they still played every day for hours on end and whenever they got the chance to play one of them together, theyd argue about which game to play, so one of them cou
