“Alright, give us every coin you’ve got! And no funny business, you hear!?”
The couple had no choice; they didn’t have any weapons on them to defend themselves against the bandits, especially the large one in their group: a bear standing at an impressive seven foot height. The axe he wielded was none less terrifying either.
“P-Please don’t hurt us,” said the woman, who was sitting next to her husband at the driver’s seat. “We were just passing through!”
“Yeah, yeah…” the smaller bandit waved off. “Alright, big guy. Grab everything from the back.”
The bear nodded firmly to the wolf and made his way around the carriage. With the animals held down by their reigns by two other bandits, the old couple wasn’t going anywhere.
Suddenly, the woman gasped: “Oh no! George, the boy…!”
She turned her head to look towards the muscular bear man, who was a

Why does my heart hurt so badly? Is it because it's lonely too?
Why do we feel this type of emotion? It doesn't seem to get us very far.
Even if I were to change these emotions, what good will it do?
It will still feel the same, just give it a different name.
What does it matter how hurt and pain feels? They both feel the same to me.
They both hurt me and depress me so. So, when I walk towards the end of that shadow.
Pain is right at the door.

seem to be the safe haven i have left...
With the water pouring from the heavens...
Down into the sewers...
Is where all my problems went...
Its gently tap on my face...
so embracing and serene....
Now i hope u come....
So i can cry and no one can see a trace....
When I'm alone the thoughts occur...
Returning and questioning...
If what im doing in life...
Is 100% sure...
If i can see my self safe in someones arms......
Huddled and cradled..
But in that pond....
Behind all my words and charm....
A reflection is there...
Of something that is not me...
Rather someone 'Me' as there labeled...
Will you judge...
Tell me please...
Whether or not ur okay.....
If I went in the rain...
To cry today...

I strike with my Master in the darkness of the night.
But, something in my programming tells me it's not right.
There are times when I don't wish to obey
But I must do what Master says each day.
I am programmed to listen and follow every word.
Not able to let my own voice to be heard.
Though I can indeed speak for myself, decisions are not my own.
As long as Master has control over me, I can never decide who I am.
However, I do not mind this at all.
It brings me joy to serve my Master's call.
Emotion isn't so foreign to me
Even though I may be a robot.
Everything in the world is easy to see
It is easy to manipulate
Easy to touch and to destroy
I wish that all of it could stay the way it is, in it's beauty for all to enjoy.

In the coldest of the northern streets of Tokyo-To, Japan, lives many families who happen to be friends as well.

The hedgehog didn't have time to react as Dawn grabbed him and both fell off the tree. Dawn landed ontop of him and restrained his wrists against the ground. The hedgehog panicked and struggled from her grip, but it seemed that her inhuman strength kept him down. Dawn couldn't take it anymore. The smell was too overwhelming. It made her feel so alive. She grabbed both of his wrists in her left hand and pinned them over his head. She used her right to tilt his head to the left and her heart jumped.

The black and white wolf with the scar, sat in the dark room, silently watching the screens, waiting. He impatiently tapped his front paw on the cement flooring to an unsteady rhythm and he glanced at the numbers in the corner of the screen. Three minutes past four… the visitor was late… Just as the scarred wolf turned his head from the camera recordings, the door in the back of the room creaked open, and the visitor stepped through.
“I’m very sorry for being late, Salin,” The visitor whispered, his quiet voice shaking.
Salin made no noise but he made a slight nodding motion and the visitor went on.
“I really am sorry. My last dream reading job ran late. I-”
This time Salin did cut him off, “I understand, but I called you here to interpret the future. Not to listen to you ramble on about your problems.” Salin paused, sliding the remote that sat on the floor beside him so that it was in front of his body,
Legendary Pokemon Gijinkas! Ch 2 Victini gasped in surprise. A figure in black had landed on the ground from the ceiling. The figure was a guy with jet black hair. He was wearing a long black coat with some sort of armor like pad on his chest. He wore black pants and black boots. Across his coat were electric blue lines that seemed to contour some of his muscles. He was wearing sunglasses with yellow lenses that were see through. He lifted the glasses from his eyes, revealing bright red eyes. The boy stuck out his hand, and in a split second a huge, electric blue axe materialized into his black-gloved hands. The axe was blazing with blue electricity.Legendary Pokemon Gijinkas! Ch 29 months ago in Profiles More Like This

After running behind a corner, the man stopped running to catch his breath, hand clutching tightly into his chest. Sweat was dripping down, sticking to the fur on his body. There was no sound of chase anymore but he had to make sure, mustering whatever courage he had that time, he peeked around the corner. There was no one – not even the patrolling guards – and that in itself was both reassuring and worrying.
Finally, he sighed in relief and turned away… only to bump into something.
… or someone.
The bump made the man take a few steps back, but it was what he saw that froze him in place. Standing at around six feet tall before him was an intimidating figure, possessing broad shoulders that only enhanced its already menacing appearance. Its eyes glowed in the dark like a nocturnal predator as it raised its hands, soon spawning what looked like three sharp claws from each one! The snapping sounds they made frightened the

The announcer's words were heard all across the Arena, including the waiting room. For most that attended, many were excited and anxious; for those who actually knew the two participants: they were surprised. Needless to say, both said participants did not expect it as well and quickly turned their attentions towards each other.
"No way!" Gem said, "We're the opening match!"
"Yeah, I didn't expect to fight you so soon " Iron Tail admitted before putting on a grin, "But let's give it our best!"
"Good luck!" both of them said in unison.
The two nodded to each other, but there was a look of doubt between the older individuals next to them. Iron Tail was the first to step out into the light, soon finding himself surrounded by what looked like hundreds of eyes and cheers. Gem followed through, and found herself in the same situation. It was intimidating at best, and pressure started to build it. The referee of their match had to usher on

The Beginning - Chapter 19 The city was suddenly under attack by monsters of darkness, but none of the guards that were patrolled at the gate sent out an alarm; it was found out later, however, that they had been knocked out prior to the attack but no one had the time to figure out who could have done such a thing as the gate was already flooded with those beasts. As several guards gathered at that point, they fought them off as much as they possibly could, but they considered themselves lucky that the monsters were not too big, but their numbers of around fifteen to even thirty were troubling. The whole place was in a state of panic and some even blamed out loud that it was the work of the Dark Lord and even the 'wizards and witches' of the Academy. The other guards were left in charge to gather the city folk and those who got injured during the panic into the city hall - all the while still defending them against the flock of monsters.The Beginning - Chapter 193 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

His heart started to beat much faster; his legs started to feel much weaker. He was not sure what was going on, but somewhere deep inside he felt that it was the wizard who was truly suffering at the moment. To Eliza and the boy's horror, they watched as the dark magic took over Vaalga, and his body started to mutate. He started to share the dark flesh of the monsters attacking the city below, but he was also turning much larger. His muscles grew, and on top of all that, horns started to spawn from his head as well, along with his tail, which became large and stubby. The clothes around his body were torn up from not being able to withstand his sudden growth, leaving the former headmaster of the Academy as bare as any wild beast.

The Beginning - Epilogue A few days had passed but the whole experience had left a great blow to the once calm city of Libreria. Not everyone saw what had transpired at the Academy that night, and no one actually knew exactly who their 'savior' was that defeated the Dark Lord, and saved them from the attacking monsters. To others, it had all been just like a nightmare. The Academy received much of the backlash, with some people now blaming the Academy for what had happened to their wonderful city and there was a slight rise of their numbers at the same time, some others felt that it was someone from the Academy that had saved them despite how cruel they had treated them in the past few months. For once since a very long time, the students and teachers of the Academy were allowed to leave the premise, and return to their homes and families.

For once in the village since a long time, the lives of the villagers were notably different. All of them were affected by what happened days ago, and there did not seem to be any end to stories and assumptions. Most of these all focused on one boy though, who had experienced different comments about him leaving the journey alone. Most of the children were happy for him, while some actually showed signs of worry. The adults were not that much different though about the whole situation. The people had prepared him sacks to fill water in; fruits and berries in case he would get hungry; new pairs of leather boots and gloves, and even daggers each made out of wood and rock despite the boy never exactly properly trained to handle weapons.The Beginning - Chapter 73 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

The Beginning - Chapter 9 Back at the abandoned castle from the town, there was a secret passageway. Down a flight of endless stairs down into the abyss, an unused dungeon could be found though those who had been left there still had their skeletons preserved. At the bottom of these already deep chambers, however, was one particular room, and that room contained a very special object; the room held a giant crystal, floating in midair above a magical seal. The crystal emitted an eerie purple glow along with the symbols and writings of the seal below. The one who stood in front of it to witness such a sight was none other than the Dark Lord who once only went by the name of Vaalga. He locked his eyes with the giant crystal before he spread his arms, and a powerful cry was released through his gaping mouth.The Beginning - Chapter 93 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

He waved to Wade, who drove away with his stagecoach to possibly get some new customers, or simply return back to town. The boy could not help wonder why the man got so quiet near the end of their journey, but his simple mind quickly dismissed it as he looked around him and found himself surrounded by buildings even bigger than the ones he came across previously. A lot of people were moving around going about with their daily lives, and for Iron Tail, once again the burden of being their Hero was forgotten as he set off to explore this vast place called a 'city'. He had heard about such places from his grandfather, but seeing and hearing about them were two different things.
