The Fourteenth Scroll:
As most of the hard core fans of this series know, I abandoned the Hitteki Scrolls about 3 years ago in my pursuit of an original series. My goal was to gain popularity and be known for an original cast and an original setting. In the process of that quest I placed all the fanart and fanfiction of the scrolls in storage on DeviantART to help the attention focus more on my original works. I did hear a lot of outcry over the matter, got a lot of criticism for it, even at one time being accused of insulting my fans over it. I lost 300 followers overnight over the cause. I still say to this very day that the sole purpose of storaging all of this material was so I could gain a fan base for my original works and bring the attention off of Toshi for a change. This worked, which is one reason why I
Maxwell the ChuChu Maxwell was a strange thing. You see, there are a lot of strange, unusual little creatures in the world of the Great Sea, but among them many consider ChuChus to be the strangest. Maxwell was a ChuChu, and thus he was a strange creature. That is to say, he was a strange creature to others, but not to him and his fellow ChuChus. Oh, but that isn't exactly true either... See, among ChuChus, he was quite outstanding.Maxwell the ChuChu4 years ago in Humor More Like This
Maxwell was one of the best looking Chus on all of Windfall Island. Some would say he was nothing more than a blob of jelly, but that is exactly the POINT. The Chu ladies all ached for a chance to go out with Maxwell, but he was always far too busy. He always wore the most professional looking hat a Chu could buy. Some would say that this hat was just more jelly, but that is simply ignorance. It, like the rest of his ensemble, was remarkably dapper.
This well-to-do ChuChu was always busy with a number of projects and other affairs, rarely h

" Hey, NE! Look!", UR said and he was so excited for his amazing discovery in the Archives room.
" UR, What are you holding?", his partner asked.
" Don't be silly!", he laughed. " It's a box! I wonder what's inside it?"
" Oh, come on!", NE replied. " It's P's files. Don't you know it's too confidential?"
" What do you mean confidential?", the Uranian asked with disbelief. " I'm so freaking curious. I wanna open it!"
" NO-NO! STOP THE PRANKS!", NE exclaimed as he warned his companion. " P's going to be mad at us. He's gonna blow his gasket again. UR, Can't you see why he has an evaluation meeting with the others? If he finds out that we're too insane in MIB, then he's gonna neuralyze us for good and deport us back into our homes."

Beth sat before the fireplace in her bedroom, her feet tucked beneath her and a blanket wrapped around her shoulders. She was still trembling after all that had happened, and though she tried to breath evenly, her heartbeat wouldn’t slow even a little.
Garrett had disappeared several hours before with an unconscious Fiona in his arms and a shaken, bleary eyed Mr. Gibbs close at his side.
Beth had asked to help, wanting to be close by when Fiona woke, but both men had insisted that she too needed to rest after her ordeal, and so she had been left with no other choice but to wait anxiously in her bedroom for word of Fiona’s condition.
In an effort to keep her mind off of her worry over Fiona, she busied herself by removing the bandages from her arm and leg.
“Strange,” she murmured when the bandages fell away. Not a scratch marred her pale skin, and there were no scars. To anyone else, it would appear

Being Other, immortal, magic, Fae, arcane. Jareth wearied of those descriptors. He was, in fact, Other from Other. True, he was a magical being, in contrast to those creatures without any magic. He was immortal, with little likelihood of dying. Arcane, certainly not mundane. Fae well that's a more difficult distinction. Not Elven, nor dwarven, nor faerie, fiery, goblin, or anything else.
Even among a category of beings, he was unique, and thus, alone.
Lonely because he ruled the Goblin Kingdom, and few of his equals relished the constant tumult inherent within a population of those having the wisdom of over-tired three-year-olds who were coming down off of a sugar rush.
There were Fae, Elven, and other beings of comparable intellectual, magical, or other abilities within his Realm. Some could match him in games of skill or amusement, and one or two could best him in a limerick challenge. He relished the occasional debate or even flat-out argument among these

"Okay...so maybe not like Tinkerbell, then..." Sarah knew when to retreat. Usually. However, she couldn't resist adding, "Granted, if you've ever seen the Disney version, you do share a few simil-"
He cut her off with one word, "Mother!"
Looking around quickly, Sarah demanded, "Where?!"
"You sound just like her..."
"You did not just tell me that I remind you of your mother! There is no way I am anything like that evil ice queen! Take it back or so help me I'll find a way to put some of the Bog in your now sparkly bathtub!" Her voice had gotten so brittle it could have cracked if you dropped it.
"See see see?!" Jareth had raised his hand and was now pointing at her.
"Don't 'See see see' me!" Sarah stalked towards him and he backed up until he hit
Only a Dream 12The first sneeze didn't overly bother Jareth. Or the second. However, by the sixth, he began to get just a little suspicious. By that point, he was glad Erik was at a meeting for the college's music faculty. If he had been present, the large amount of glitter each sneeze brought with it would have sent him into fits.

However, James Norrington, who was working on something a few feet away, did his best to take Erik's place. "What in the world?" He exclaimed after the eight attack sent glitter into his face.
Jareth's only response was another resounding "Achoo!"
"For the love of Someone's having a great time talking about you, aren't they?" The Englishman picked up the stack of papers and shook them, watching copious amounts of glitter fall out.
If James had been paying attention, he would have seen Jareth's mismatched eyes fly wide, right before another sneeze grabbed him. This time, he nearly shot off the couch, it w

Prosper never really had a penchant for planning ahead. This quality had only gotten stronger after he had begun dating Blaire, seeing as she rarely did anything without planning for it first. However, once in a while he would make exceptions on special nights when he wanted to surprise her- their anniversary last year, for example. As it turned out, their evenings always went a lot better when he didn't plan ahead, ironic as that sounded.
Tonight was certainly one he wanted to get perfect, so he had determinedly planned for it throughout the previous weeks. Before now, the night had gone perfectly, not a flaw in sight. They had gone to dinner at the fancy restaurant he had emptied his paycheck for, at the reserved table outside on the deck, and he had sneakily managed to convince her to walk down to a nearby park with him before calling a taxi. Unfortunately, his nature was to be a little spontaneous, so when they passed a fair, of all things, on the way to the small pavilion h

Era una noche tormentosa, Elyon y sus padres estaban en la sala de estar. Ella se había quedado dormida en el hombro de su madre cuando un escalofrío recorrió su espalda y su pequeño colgante en forma de lágrima comenzó a brillar con un color rojizo. Su padre, Tim, se asomó a la ventana. Un rayo iluminó el jardín y el hombre palideció.
-¡Ani! ¡Llévate a la niña, rápido! ¡Nos ha encontrado! gritó asustado.
La mujer cogió a Elyon del brazo y corrió hacia las escaleras. Su padre se acercó a la puerta cuando esta se abrió de par en par y una sombra apareció por la puerta, levantó una varita y apuntó a su padre con una rapidez asombrosa.
-¡Avada Kedavra! gritó el extraño.
Un rayo verde alcanzó a su padre en el pecho antes de que este pudiera reaccionar, y cayó inerte al suelo.

Two weeks after the fight against Endorra, the Nemesian, The MIB agents returned to their routine by doing their assignments and tasks. Of course, they were looking forward for another adventure in capturing any terrorizing scumbags in New York City and other countries. This time, they were having their personal work in the locker room to fix themselves.
Agent P opened his locker door when he took his personal hygiene materials. He looked at the picture of him and his late wife, Agent Alpha. Now, he made the deceased villain pay from her wrongdoings . He thought, " You're in better hands, Alpha. I fought for your justice and the rest of the Solar system. Thanks to my colleagues. I hope you'll be proud, if you're still living and seeing me in MIB."

A Hidden Mischevious StreakThe incessant meowing was going to be the death of that cat, Prosper mused. He wasn't going to be responsible if he snapped and threw it out a window- that meow would bring it out in anyone. He groaned and covered his head with a pillow, wishing Blaire was there to shut Marshmallow up. She had left earlier to go to a class, and, since Prosper had thought she'd been telling the truth when she had said it would be quick, he had foolishly decided to wait for her in her apartment while taking a nap. But here he was, a hour later, and the little demon would not be quiet!A Hidden Mischevious Streak5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"Oh, what do you want, beast?" Prosper snapped, glaring at the deceptively cute kitten staring up at him from the floor. The cat merely glared (Prosper wondered idly if it was even possible for cats to glare, and then decided very quickly that they, in fact, could) at him, eying him with the distaste only a cat could manage. Prosper knew for a fact that he was laying in the one spot that the insufferable cat usua

In his owl aspect, Jareth watched through Sarah's bedroom window as her group of ridiculously loyal friends cavorted; the gnashing of his beak unnoticed by the shortsighted fools...every last one.
From the precise moment her footsteps paced upon his kingdom's grounds, Jareth perceived a shuddering in the foundation's fabrics. Her immediate and profound effect on his world fascinated and alarmed him.

CHAPTER ONE: If Wishes were Fishes
Things like this didn't happen to people, not real people. Things like this only happened to actors in the movies or to other people you didn't know, but heard about on late night news. Then you shook your head in sympathy, sighed and commented 'how awful' or 'how sad', but it never really touched you. Not really. Not like this.
Sarah Williams focused all of her will on washing the dishes by hand, slowly. The dishwasher stood at the ready, but the physical chore kept her mindless, made it easier to live in the now rather than remember or worry. Or think about them.
"Sarah, I'm ready for bed."
"Huh...oh, okay Toby," Sarah looked over her shoulder at her younger half-brother standing at the foot of the stairs wearing his brand new Star Wars pj's that he insisted he needed to help him sleep.
"Will you come read me a story?"
"Sure...in a minute," she said and Toby heard her voice grow distant. Already she pulled away from him, eve
6: Beauty and the BeastWhen Beth woke she was afraid to move, uncertain of where she was or who might be with her.

She had the distinct feeling that she was not alone, and when she shifted her head slightly to have a better view of the large wingback chair that was near the window, her heartbeat quickening when she realized that a figure sat there--and she knew with certainty that it was Mr. Thorne.
Beth squeezed her eyes closed, trying to keep her breathing steady and even, willing Mr. Thorne to leave her alone so that she could assess her situation in peace and come up with a better means for escaping the castle and the mad creature that Mr. Thorne had transformed into.
"I know you're awake," he muttered. "So you may as well open your eyes and face me."
Her breath caught at the sound of his voice, which no longer sounded gravelly

Chapter Two: Breakfast of Champions
Sarah awoke to the pleasant sensation one gains from a full night's rest, the type when one can't quite remember the moment of slipping from consciousness to unconsciousness. Stretching and popping several joints, she realized she still wore her clothes from yesterday. Odd...
'I must've been really tired. I don't even remember going to bed.'
Shrugging off the strangeness of her morning, Sarah got up, used the restroom, and changed into her bathrobe and slippers. About to shower she noticed the time, just after 8 a.m.
"Toby!" She forgot to set her alarm and his classes started at eight. "Oh my gosh, he's late again!" Sarah dashed from the bathroom, down the hall and into her brother's bedroom, her slippers flopping on the carpet.
"Toby, Toby, get up, time for school!" she said pulling back his covers exposing an empty bed. "Toby?" Spinning in place, Sarah scanned his cluttered room finding only toys and unwashed clothes. T

CHAPTER 7: It Means: "No Worries"
Sarah's hope for a free night of good sleep degenerated into a rampaging fest of tears and nebulous, half-formed nightmares. After turning her sheet and comforter into tossed, goose down salad, she admitted defeat and crept downstairs at approximately 2 a.m. to check on His Royal Buttinski and Toby. The utter lack of sound should've been her first clue as usually the grandfather clock's tick-tock echoed upstairs at night.
It really was an excessively loud clock, and weren't there clockmaker standards for such things and if so didn't it violate them or the public noise pollution laws. Regardless, she overlooked that obviousness, and blithely strolled down the stairs wrapped in her pink fleece robe, secure in her revenge against the Goblin King. What she discovered defied all expectations. Well...what she failed to discovery really. Or expect, but then can one really have predictable expectations with anything involving g
PaybackBlaire woke with a start, very alert and, for some reason, very cold. Blaire rubbed her eyes wearily and looked around the dark room, realizing after a moment that she must have forgotten to leave Prosper's apartment after he had made her come over to '"admire" his new futon. Honestly, in her opinion, it was more a ragged piece of junk than a futon, but she had to admit that it had been surprisingly comfy. Hence, the reason she had fallen asleep at Prosper's apartment.Payback5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Although, she reasoned, it would be difficult not to fall asleep while enduring a every-movie-in-my-apartment marathon that Prosper had suggested- so that they could fully appreciate the futon, apparently. Glancing around her once more, she noticed why she was so cold, and, eyes narrowing dangerously, focused on the sleepily sprawled out man by her side.
Normally she didn't mind falling asleep with Prosper- despite being leaner than most, he was surprisingly easy to use as a pillow- but there was one thing about him that
