“Good Morning, Crystal Beach! Today, it looks like it will be smokin’ hot at 92°, so don’t forget to put on some sunscreen, hit the beach, and enjoy yourselves! With that being said, continue to enjoy the rest of this fine morning by listening to these summer classics on 93.8 Platinum.”
I groan as I get out of bed. Besides not having a good night’s sleep, I’ll also have to endure an entire day of heat. Shrugging, I turn off my radio and head off to my kitchen.
As I make myself some breakfast, I decide on what I want to do. I could always stick it out inside by watching TV or browsing the internet, but then again, I’ve been quite the shut-in lately. I haven’t seen or talked to my friends lately, nor have I gone out just to have fun.
I look out of my window, and I sigh. Though I don’t live right on the beach, it’s only about

It was a cloud of smoke and Sasuke appeared in front of the metal door, hiding his face from the last bit of glowing light. It soon night. When the dawn breaks, he would be able to move everywhere. We got to capture him before that happens. I ran after my blonde companion, towards the black-haired ex of mine. Sasuke looked frankly around as we came closer, his teeth sparkling. His uncovered hands began to turn red and smoke came from them.
"Now you're trapped," Naruto teased him as we stood right across him on the bridge. I watched as Sasuke turned around, grab the metal and distorted the gate! He ran for full speed into the dark castle, leaving Naruto and I stunned.
"He bent the gate!" I cried terrified. Naruto grabbed my arm and dragged me along into the dark corridor.
"His strength wouldn't save him this time," Naruto stated. Naruto's claws sunk into my skin, but I didn't complain. I had still chosen him over that monster.

In a world as colorful, diverse, unique and beautiful as it is today, I’ve learned through my 10 months on this website that many people enjoy expressing themselves in many different ways when it comes to art.
Whether it be through romance, nature, darkness, light or everything else there is to express with, it becomes even more interesting when I see the people express themselves with so many different mediums.
Myself? I enjoy expressing my artistic abilities through many mediums: Digital art, poetry, but most avidly, the xReader fandoms. Avengers, Sherlock, Free!, Shingeki no Kyojin and many, many others.
99% of my stories are romantic. I love to write romance, though I usually don’t take it much further than a little something like a sweet little kiss, the beginning of a new relationship, a baby being born, or occasionally, the odd sexual innuendo. Once, I tried writing a lemon. However it didn’t work out very well, and I decided to remove it for personal reasons.

The Genetic Park 8 part 3
I sighed as I sipped my drink, barely paying attention to my surroundings as nothing that was going on around me caught my attention. It was all background really, and nothing worth looking away from my drink for.. My tail slithered and coiled around the stool as I minded my own business, the weights felt barely palpable, as if there was nothing there at all. Maybe this wasn't gonna be a problem after all. I kept minding my business until I heard a voice, a girl asking me "Are you a TG too?" My whiskers twitched as I glanced right, only to see a tigress with a beer in her hand, she seemed somewhat depressed as her ears laid hidden on her orange hair.
Ever since I've gotten this body I managed to learn how to detect emotions through subtle actions such ears falling down or standing up top, the swishing or limpness of the tail. It all managed to tell the mood of a person. Fur bristling when one was angry on cats, vapory snorts on equines and bovines when they we

Only a few moments ago, she was a young, grouchy sort of guy in a foul mood. After a quick spray of the Costume in a Can, he had turned into a peppy and cheerful looking Loly Aivirrine (A far cry in personality from the original version to be sure).
It was 11:17 AM and things were certainly underway in at the neighborhood wide garage sale. After a big burst of people right away, things had settled down in the area, now at a nice and more manageable rate.

The two locked in a close embrace and began to kiss with a fiery passion that was not new to Temari but would be new to Tenten if not for recent events. After the kiss, Temari placed a smaller kiss, almost like a signature, on Tenten's lips. Temari then began to kiss the other woman's neck, causing a small moan from Tenten

Not far outside a small town in Southwestern Ontario was the farm of the Martin Family.

The couple sat together on the chesterfield while Mindy and the Changeling sat on chairs facing them and Quebec Star floated around the room. “Please tell us everything you can remember,” Mindy asked. “We need to know as much as possible about your ordeal.”
“Of course,” David replied. “A few months ago, the man who employed Gordon came here. I can’t remember what he looked like; his features are blurred in my mind. He spent about a week here, doing whatever it was that he did to our minds, to get us to say those horrible things about Gordon.

As an upbeat song started booming through the school's sound system and the local students began cheering, a seemingly distant figure emerged from the horizon (all the way over to where the schools old gymnasium laid) and waltzed into the field. The visiting team (and their supporters) looked at the figure in shock, as it got bigger and bigger and bigger, it was like no mascot they had ever seen.
A gigantic figure no shorter than 15ft pranced towards the middle of the field wearing a skimpy white and blue cheerleader outfit and totting blue pompoms; the imposing mascot was built like a titan, sporting huge muscular arm

The recruits were assembled on a clear day in mid-February 2016 on a lonesome ranch property in the middle of the Nevada desert. They numbered over a hundred strong and were considered the finest candidates from the initial screening process. Most had flown into Vegas the night before and stayed in economy lodgings provided by X-com.
During initial screening they had undergone days of testing, everything from strength and endurance to how easily they would succumb to conbat fatigue and how quickly they could react to sudden unfavorable situations. They were each a series of numbers now, quantified scores of how well they could be expected to perform in the line of duty. Each was granted a $40,000 stipend upon placement in a base which they were encouraged to spend freely, as their salaries would afford them every luxury if they survived the first month of combat.

Fain had just finished cleaning up dinner, a dinner that Ba Haid had refused to eat, a dinner that was normally his favorite. His inability to sit comfortably was undoubtedly part of his refusal. Fain was sure his young Master didn't want to further humiliate himself by showing pain. Thus far all of his attempts to cheer up Ba Haid had ended in utter failure. Alas not much was left to do till bed time, Fain walked into the lounge and picked up his novel. He flipped through the pages and then began to sit down on the couch when the call panel chimed.

Magnum jumped out of the plane and parachuted towards his destination, keeping his eyes open for anything suspicious.
And the plane that he just jumped from exploded above him.

The whole affair was insane, horrifying as he looked to the young woman, maybe fourteen or fifteen years of age and rather pale but not from the sour weather, nor was she the age she appeared. She was perhaps several weeks old, grown in a vat for purposes he found most foul.
It was immoral on a level he couldn't accept even if it was to counter what he felt was a growing metahuman menace, making living beings who were to serve as weapons, nothing more, just breathing, thinking machines of flesh and bone.

The third, however, was in different packaging. Between the cheap paper and thin plastic was a crudely muscled figure. Its face was twisted in an expression of hatred below poorly painted blond hair. The logo on the package read "Villains of Angel Falls: Raging Bull".
