It would take eight hours for the Normandy to reach their destination. That meant eight hours of rest, the time to think some things over, and maybe have some fun, but for Shepard it meant eight hours of forced rest by her doctor. Shepard felt good, even though she had wrenched her neck on their last mission a little. They had been asked by Wrex to pursue some missing scouts in the Nimah cluster. They had found the scouts, led by their tank-baby Grunt and a lot of rachni. Suddenly behind her Admiral Tali'Zorah shrieked like a five year old girl, panicked and ran in circles.
Shepard's head was jerked around to follow her with her gaze. Subsequently, she was stunned for a short moment, dealing with pa
Bandits RP IntroductionHooves thumped against the dirt road on the path between the captial, Narbith, and the southern monastery. The heavy thumps were accompanied by the creaking of wooden wheels under strain. Six horses plotted along at a casual pace; four of them ridden by individuals and two pulling a large wagon at a steadily. The large wagon was made entirely of thick wood and was completely sealed from the front and the sides. A large wooden door was ajar at the back, swinging slightly as the carriage passed over the bumpy road. At the front, a small carriage was attached. The lone driver sat at the reigns; a thinly man, sporting a simple green cloth shirt and brown pants. A wide-brimmed, straw, floppy hat sat upon his head as half-closed, blue-grey eyes stared apathetically at the road in front of them, which seemed to stretch on forever, dividing the thick forest around it.Bandits RP Introduction6 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

The Doctor could see his thoughts clearly, and Sherlock questioned what abilities that he may exhibit as a time lord; could he read his mind? Images of John suddenly flashed through his own, of Lestrad grasping him and screaming- they would all be in panic now; there could be search groups out looking for him; what a waste of tax payers money. John would have left Sarah mid dinner, rushing out in the cold and rain to find him; he would search for days- weeks if he had to, and Sherlock knew he would never give up. His heart began to pain thinking of John, could he leave him so easily?

"Fine, snake people. However, according to your Wizard friend here, you originally did not know they were snake people."
"..They wouldn't let us pass," the Demon Hunter replied, more question than statement.
"And at no point did you think to yourself, 'oh, you know what I should do? Call my superiors, maybe explore some diplomatic channels.' You guys jumped straight to ethnic cleansing," the bulbous constable replied, scowling. "This is on top of assisting a rogue Horadrim, letting Deckard Cain's niece get kidnapped, and, cherry on top, breaking every single piece of pottery from Arcanus to Caldeum."

The sun gleams in the dusk sky lined the heavens in a fantastic manner, as if the lord had made it happen himself. On the road below the glorious sky walks a Pokemon trainer along with her fellow Pokemon Gallade, in the middle of the long trip back home. Both of them had just returned from one of the biggest events of their lives. The Elite Four.
Two years ago Sally had set off on her Pokemon journey from her home town. At that time, she managed to capture a Ralts shortly after leaving town. That Ralts eventually came to evolve into Gallade. Sally and Gallade never left one sides from one another. Everything they did was together. Shopping, eating, even sleeping. Although Gallade couldn't speak the human language, he fully knew how to understand it. It was very romantic, for one of them at least.
Gallade was madly in love with Sally. There was just something about her that made him trapped in love. She had always been a good trainer to Gallade and Gallade had alwa

Back at the center chamber of the mines, Peter does his best to make an escape plan, but none of them succeeded. Soon, Peter started losing hope of ever seeing the light of day again.
But then, Peter felt someone put him in a loving embrace. He looked up to see it was his Nidoqueen comforting him. He suddenly felt calmer as a strange feeling spread throughout his body.
"I'm thankful for the hug, but I don't think now is the best time." He said, gently stroking her muzzle as the feeling grew more intense. He felt his body starting to tremble a little now as his clothes began to grow tighter against him. He let out a soft moan as he felt his stomach growing larger and broader, his pectorals growing larger and more developed. After a few moments his shirt tore apart down the middle, revealing his expanding frame, covered in thick, plated white scales.

Crossover:Mind of a TimeLord- 1It was stormy, there would be many lightning strikes tonight; Sherlock ran. The wide open meadow would be directly hit by the lighting, and shelter was miles away. The unanticipated had occurred and suddenly his stomach began to churn; a fleeting image passed through his mind and the smell of chlorine ran past his nose. The emotion of rushing and shock; shock was not a feeling he'd become accustomed to, the knowledge that he had not known and a great fear of the unknown. Watson walking out and looking at him, his eyes filled with something he could not interpret and within that moment he lost of sense of reality; his reality was his deduction, knowing and understanding the grounded and anticipated truth- he'd lost that within a moment when Watson walked out. He'd soon regained it, understanding that he'd been tricked momentarily, but the feeling lingered, insecurity and slight defeat; not knowing the truth.Crossover:Mind of a TimeLord- 14 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Noah lived alone on an island. One day, a plane he was on crashed here and he was one of the few survivors, and the only one who didn't go insane. He longed for a way back to civilization.
"...and if I don't get help in a few days, I'm going to swim back, I swear. There. All done in the journal for today. Lights out." He pulled some covers over himself and drifted to sleep.
The following day, Noah didn't really do much. Just fish and ward off the lunatics. When the sun started to set, he lit a bonfire outside his hut. Hopefully a passing ship or helicopter would see it. In the distance there were several whirlpools, and the waves seemed bigger.
"Hope that's not a hurricane."
The next morning, Noah found a flock of Wingull huddled just outside his door. When he opened it, the flew right in.

Espeon's Plan - vaporeon tfIt was a typical summer day for Rusty. His family was cooking barbeque in the backyard, and his older sisters were busy being chatty teens, like most girls.Espeon's Plan - vaporeon tf4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Rusty was sitting at his desk in his room, finishing up his homework. He hated doing it, but he was always being closely monitored by his parents with his schoolwork. It was never easy to procrastinate or put off on studying. He sighed and looked over at his bag, four pokeballs strapped on a belt was inside the bag.
Rusty loved his pokemon. He had asspirations to become the Champion of Unova, but his dreams were always tarnished by having to stay in school. He was only 14, so he had at least four more years before he could go out on a journey by himself. His parents still let him keep pokemon as pets, though. But as a result, he rarely battled with other trainers.
"I need a break." he said frustratingly, throwing his pencil off to the side. He closed his math book and got out his chair, walking over to his bag. "Who wants to have a

Another sandstorm today. It seemed like Route 111 was always impassible these days. Corbyn pulled on his hiking boots and started getting ready for a hike through the Fiery Path.
Corbyn was 19 years old. He had black hair, brown eyes, and an Eevee that he carried around everywhere. He'd promised his friend that he would meet him in Fallarbor Town to catch his entry in the super contest there, but the weather seemed to be trying to prevent that from happening. It shouldn't be a big deal though, there was a tunnel through Mt. Chimney called the Fiery Path that would get him there, if he could get past all the pokémon inside.
Which, he was confident, Eevee could. He pulled on some hot weather clothes and let Eevee out of her ball. "You ready to go, Eevee?"
The little chestnut-brown pokémon looked up at Corbyn with bright eyes. "Veevee!" she exclaimed agreeably, smiling up at him. Corbyn smiled back and headed for the door.

Halo: More than FictionThere are Halo fans, and then there are Halo fans. There are gamers who preorder the game as soon as such an opportunity is available, spend months patiently awaiting its release, attend the midnight distribution to acquire their copy, and rush home to spend hours blitzing through campaign missions. That's devotion, right? Not even close.Halo: More than Fiction4 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
The Halo franchise has made a hefty impact on culture worldwide, most significantly Western culture, and millions across the globe have experienced the wonder of turning on the Xbox and hearing that timeless, haunting Gregorian melody which precludes the coming joyride. It's only natural that within the fan base there would be people who take the concept of being a "fan" to another level entirely. While many are "Normal mode" fans, these individuals would be best classified as "Legendary," or dare I say "Mythic mode" fans-- those who go above and beyond the call of duty (no pun intended) to express their love for Halo

"Oh cool! A Ralts!" Keel said as he walked down the route. He was only ten years old at the time, old enough for a trainer's license, but lacking in one. Not that Keel didn't like Pokemon, quite the opposite, he just didn't want to train any of them. He had always wanted a pet though, one that would be a great friend to him, and would always stick by his side.
Needless to say that the Ralts in question had known about the human for some time. She had not run, since she could detect his happy emotions and feelings. Most of the humans that came down this route were trainers, and, though they were nice, they usually had a hint of aggression required to be a trainer. This human seemed friendly enough to approach though. She walked over to him and, so that only a few feet separated the two.
"Wow, I've never been this close to a Ralts before." Keel was in sheer delight over this. He reached out slowly and patted the little pokemon on the head. It just smiled and the at

"Good kid, you better be right. And if you aren't, then you'd wish you were."
After a few more minutes of walking, they came across an old temple on a cliff face.
"He he, you were right kid. The temple is here."
"So you'll let me go?"

Two big kidnappers grabbed Ryan by the arms.

The two goons took him to the edge of the cliff, and threw him off.

"Who's there?" Kyle pushed away the vegetation to find a sleeping nine-tailed fox Pokemon. He quickly scanned her with his Pokedex.
"Ninetales: the Fox Pokemon, and the evolved form of Vulpix. Ninetales can live up to 1000 years and are said to curse anyone who touches one of it's golden tails. They also have mind control abilities."

Unfortunately for Kyle, his voice and the Pokedex woke up the creature. She sprayed Kyle with a bit of fire and ran off.

Eventually, he lost her. He pulled a Luxury Ball off his belt. "Go, Poochyena!"

Quickly turning around, Sam found that his Feraligatr had sprayed him with water, completely soaking his legs and his lower back. However, he didn't feel threatened by it at all. He knew that his Feraligatr was just playing around. A smile formed on his face.

Ben was sitting in the middle of his college classroom
socializing with his friend. Today was the last day of school before winter
break and both of them were excited for the end of the day. They were talking about
who their favorite Pokémon was and why. Ben's favorite was Ninetales, and his
friend Isabelle's was Luxray. Ben's system had been acting weird lately. He
recently had a wild battle with his newly caught Ninetales, whom he had
nicknamed Charm on his Heartgold game. This was weird because Vulpix and Ninetales
didn't actually appear in the game. As the end of the day neared, Ben and
Isabelle decided to have a battle. At the end of the battle, Ben found himself
cornered. His last Pokémon was Charm, but for some reason, he couldn't bring
himself to send her out. It seemed strange but he had fallen in love with the
