Boy was about nineteen. A young man really, but his face made him look younger. Girl was younger, maybe fifteen, sixteen. Peter Bowen thought as he kept his distance considering the situation, studying the several people involved.
City of wade was under Arenian occupation for over three centuries now, and Arenian trackers seeking out mages to be drafted to their military force was hardly an unusual event. Most people who were learned in spellcasting kept their skills hidden, and their weapons were creatively concealed.
Still give it enough time and any trickery will stand revealed. Trackers were by now very skilled in noticing anything with engraved spellcasting spiral. A ring, a stick, the smallest of things. They knew what they were looking for.
This was what baffled peter as he studied the unfolding situation. Boy was blatantly wearing two short swords with the casting spiral boldly and prominently visible on their handles. Either he was a fool, of a foreigner who decide

Summary: As Aqua wanders alone, pondering her feelings, Terra wonders the same thing his feelings for Aqua, causing them to come out in a way neither of them expected. Terra x Aqua
Disclaimer: I don't own Kingdom Hearts.
I'm very fond of the Terra & Aqua pairing. There's just something about it, something I can't put my finger on, that I like. And I was bored when I came up with this.
Also, at some points I'll refer to the Master Qualification Exam as MQE. It just saves a hassle since completely spelled out, it's long.
Aqua walked along the river. She'd decided to take a walk to clear her head before the big Master Qualification Exam with Terra. Her blue hair rustled with the light breeze. Eyes the color of the water reflected the peaceful flowing of the river. She wondered what Terra and Ven were doing. She knew Ven went to bed, but he usually snuck out sometime later to look at the stars.
Terra? Aqua didn't know what he did at night. Sh
Trunk Full of Rings - PopularDelving in once again, I pick a ring and pull it out. While my last transformation had resulted in some free clothes for my Rule 63 form, it wasn't worth almost losing my mind in the process.Trunk Full of Rings - Popular2 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Walking over to book, I place the golden brown ring on the page and write 'What's this one called?'.
'Popular. You have good tastes my friend' comes book's reply
'But I'm picking these randomly!'
There is a pause, 'You have good random tastes'
Rolling my eyes, I turn to the mirror and slide the ring on, wondering how it could possibly make me more popular. Seems like the only way I'm going to get an answer to that.
My waist slowly thins down while my hips and breasts expand, giving me a decent hourglass figure. However, unlike the rule 63 ring, this time it goes further, stopping only after my waist becoming almost amnesic while my hips and ass stick far out and my breasts are pushing the DD-cup boundary. My arms thin out as my thighs thicken and feet shrink. In fact my whole body is shrinking sli

Written by JanusDaGuardian and DannyStar64
It was the last day of school. Daniel was setting out for home when he heard rumors about a “mysterious voice moaning for help” after nightfall somewhere along the local public beach. They said the beach was haunted by some ghost, “Out to ensnare any who dared to answer it. Although slightly shaken by the tail-end of that rumor, Daniel's curiosity peaked. It was good timing as well since he had yet to plan out his summer vacation, so why not kick things off with a little ghost hunt?
Making a little detour home to grab some essentials, like a flashlight, a tape-recorder, a Catholic cross, etc... sneaking in a small meal, Daniel grabbed his bike and headed out. Night fell shortly after he'd arrived. The moon was covered rather nicely behind the dense, nighttime clouds, perfect enough to conceal Daniel's presence, until he went to use his flashlight, which he let rest in a loop on his cargo shorts

The title would be better, but I couldn't think of anything else.
Aqua sat on the trunk of a bent palm tree on Destiny Islands watching the sunset. She'd sat on this same tree just over a decade before. It had been a long time since she'd seen a sunset as beautiful as this one.
"I almost forgot what the sun looked like," she whispered. "It's been so long."
This was true. For the past twelve years, Aqua had been stuck in the Realm of Darkness. She'd done nothing but wander to search for a way back home. She'd almost given up hope, but it was thanks to her meeting with Ansem the Wise. She'd met the man just recently, but he'd been a comfort of twelve years of loneliness.
Aside from being lonely, Aqua had almost given up hope twice in

David looked at the ground and frowned. It was very idiotic to bring up to Jesus that he did not trust Him...now Jesus was "making" him do a trust fall.
"Jesus, You do know that this is not useful at all...right?" David asked.
"How do you know that?" Jesus asked, smirking.
David sighed and turned around.
"Jesus, that's the thing...I didn't know that you were going to do this...You know that I hate trust falls, the person behind me always drops me. Even after they catch me, they just drop my head after my fall. Remember how I had to go to the hospital because of this stupid stunt?"

Naruto awoke, screaming. Quickly, he made sure that he was whole and intact.
Just a dream... Okay. Ok... No, not okay. He was decidedly smaller than when he last remembered. He looked around, taking in everything. He was not in the Hokage Tower. He was not lying in bed next to the love of his life.
He was in a small, two-room apartment that looked awfully familiar.
In a flash, Naruto was out of bed and in the bathroom, desperate to examine himself, to make sure that this was just a bad dream.
The face that stared back at him from out of the mirror was that of a ten-year-old blond shinobi in-training, one with ambitions that were the source of ridicule amongst others, not just in his age group. The whisker marks that had adorned his face since before he remember, normally shrunk behind an insincere mask of laughter, were now drawn tight in an expression of utter disbelief.

The whole planet trembled the moment it happened, eight years ago. I was just nine when it happened but it was enough to deeply scare me. A meteor struck Africa and there was nothing modern science could do about it, people though it was the end of the line for earth. Yet at the moment of impact only a crater and mild quakes were the end results. For a second the earth sighed as the so called "doomsday" turned out to be a pebble the size of a truck crashing in the middle of the western shorelines of Africa.

It was just a normal sunny day in the Land of Departure. The three Keyblade apprentices of Master Eraqus were training together in the courtyard out front.
Terra, the oldest of the trio, stood tall and strong as he attacked his comrades when they advanced with physical strikes or cast spells. His spiky dark hair rippled with the light breeze. His cobalt eyes alert for any sudden movements from the others.
Ventus, the youngest and normally called Ven, speedily dodged attacks and cast various wind spells that would throw his friends off balance as he went at them. His blonde hair seemed windswept fro

Dragging three stiff and crippled legs behind it, Quadraxis lifted up its one good leg and slammed it down on the ground, setting off a rippling energy wave that spread for several meters and hurled the allied vehicles around it away. At the same time, it charged up another round of its Sonic Boom, locked it onto the last Scarab in good condition and fired. The shot barely missed, as the Scarab had quickly shuffled around to move out of the way as soon as the weapon started charging up, and a crater opened up in the artificial mountainside as the components affected by the blast fell apart. Inside the Scarab, Admiral K-8712 leaned over to the Elite piloting the Covenant walker and growled "Yes, I said closer! Move as close as you can, and then fire on the robot's remaining leg at point blank range!"

"It's true... He died."
Kakashi looked up from Zabuza's corpse, having just confirmed the nukenin's death. There was no pulse, at least none that he could find, and the senbon in his neck had not struck any near-death points that he knew of. He examined the newcomer as casually as he could. They were wearing what appeared to be a thick, dull orange robe worn loosely under some kind of gi. It had multiple places to hide weapons or could be used to obfuscate movement without hindering it. That wasn't what drew Kakashi's greatest concern. It was the smooth, wave-patterned mask bearing the symbol of Kirigakure over the forehead that did that.
The stranger bowed slightly. "You have my utmost thanks. I have been looking for an opportunity to kill him."
"If I recall correctly, that mask identifies you as one of Kirigakure's oi-nin."

Hmm it usually starts with me getting the assignment since I spend my freetime drawing other things mostly (these days at least). As soon as I know what the client wants, I leave it alone for a couple of days and wait for ideas to sprout in my head. The rest is just craftsmanship, you know, drawing the stuff and everything. The real work is done as soon as I put down the thumbnail sketch.

A blurred and painful awakening disrupted Chuck’s dormancy as his eyes slowly focused on his digital alarm clock.
The blinking colon between the hour and the minute counters violently drummed the seconds of his alcohol induced torment. Chuck’s head bellowed upon waves of whiskey infused headache. How had he managed to drink so much?
More importantly, what happened last night? The evening was a muddled conjecture of missed connections and happy accidents. The late hours of a night’s outing at his local pub usually lead to a booze-infused discussion of politics, religion, and sex, soon obliterated by a cleansing alcohol-fueled memory wipe.
Something prolific, a profound moment, had managed to escape the mental gravity well of his binge. A monolith, no... a person had managed to survive in his memories until his awakening.
Suddenly, a tide of recollection swept over his mind.

Taming the tamerIt had been the end of another busy day for Peter. it was sunset, the sky was clear, not too cold considering it was Winter. He was on his way back home from college and making his way towards the bus stop. The buses had been on strike for a few days, and only one or two of them were running every so often, so he'd be waiting a while for one. As he neared it, he had noticed a shop that he had never seen before. It was a comic and collectors shop from the looks of it, with a banner above the door reading "Grand opening weekend - 20% off all items!". It certainly sounded like a good offer to Peter, and he had no idea how long he would be waiting for a bus. Thankfully the shop had the bus stop in full view, so he'd be able to see out to see if it was coming along, so he went inside to have a look around.Taming the tamer5 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

No God - No Atheists"If there were no God, there would be no atheists." G.K. ChestertonNo God - No Atheists4 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
"That's stupid!" you say.
"Not true," says I. This statement, in and of itself, provides proof for the existence of God. I know that, if you are a non-believer, you will instantly dismiss this quote. Your beliefs are quite firm, after all, and what can shake them? You question the existence of God, but you don't really want an answer. An answer will prove you wrong. However, if you are willing to read on, I think you'll find that the question of rather or not God exists isn't one of fact or fiction. It's true, and I shall illustrate how simply using this quote.
Perhaps I should put this quote into a different perspective. Here is one of the same theme by C. S. Lewis: "If the whole universe has no meaning, we should never have found that it has no meaning: just as, if there were no light in the universe and therefore no creatures with eyes, we should never know it was dark."
