Jim Kirk turned his head confused; asking himself what his friend was up to.
"Jim," he repeated once more when he reached the captain's chair, "how far are we from New Vulcan?" he completed as soon as he caught his breath.
Jim delayed to answer, staring at Bones doubtfully, so Spock took advantage and answered,
"Assuming we travel a warp speed factor 1, we would arrive after a period of three days. Why do you ask, doctor?" he asked barely lifting his eyes from his scanner.
"Then make it factor 5," and looking to Kirk, he added, "You need to get there as soon as possible."
"Jim " he said in a broken whisper as soon as he saw the young captain arrive. "I'm glad you made it in time."
Jim watched with tender the old face. He had got to love that person, even when at the beginning he didn't trust him. Maybe it had been the mind meld at the beginning, or probably it had been the way in which he had learnt to love his younger counterpa

Emotions buried deep inside,
no one would know I'd ever cried.
In situations wild or crazy
Nothing new could ever phase me.
I would never be afraid,
angry, tearful, or dismayed.
All emotions locked away
to never see the light of day.
On my face is logic only-
all I'd ever feel is lonely.

"Well, it's nice to be back in Canterlot; so much has changed!" Twilight said as she continued walking, excitement in her voice. Sure, she'd been here a few times since she'd moved to Ponyville, but this was really the first time she'd been there just to relax and reconnect with her roots, as opposed to a party or being called to save the world from an ancient evil that escaped its prison. She remembered Rarity's friendship report after Twilight's birthday; don't be ashamed of your roots. That's what had compelled her to come do a little reconnecting with where she'd come from. "Isn't that right, Spike Spike?" she asked, looking back at her assistant to see him falling quite far behind.
Spike panted, struggling to keep up. "Yeah, Twilight," he panted, stopping to catch his breath. "Can I... Can I please ride on your back?" he asked, unable to keep up with the excited Unicorn mare. "I know you're excited, but I can onl

The firewood gathered by Lionel Hix for that night's campsite was moist from the snow, of course. But with a little coaxing from Faye's fire magic, it burned well enough for the team to warm their bones. Iorveth gladly allowed the flames' heat to saturate his cold, wet gloves while he reflected on the events of the night.
The climb to the summit had been treacherous, and not without drawbacks. Lark now sat with her head hung low, having barely spoken since the remains of her mare were offered to sate the appetites of trolls. Even her bickering with the Count had reached a standstill. Regardless, the climb had not been a fruitless effort. So long as Lark bore the jawbone trinket, they needn't fear aggression from other local mountain trolls. Also, if they had traversed the cave, Iorveth wouldn't have learned that the one called "Lily" was still somewhere ahead of them.

In the middle of the Southern Serano Ocean, there was an island. The island was enormous and it was divided into several locations. One is an underground area where the submarines are stationed to drop off supplies and other necessary resources. Near the location is the train station that carries passengers and takes them to various locations all over Azura. On the island is a hotel where the top scientists and Gear veterans are housed during the last war; next was the maelstrom generator and the control center. And finally there was the Pinnacle Tower. The island itself suffered considerable damage during the final assault on the island bay what was left of the Coalition of Order Government and the regiments of the UIR in order to wipeout the Locust Horde and the Lambent once and for all.

Today, my friend mafalda-chan and I were joking about what appears to be my most populair M-rated fic at this point, "Prowling and Courting". Though I'm still baffled as to why it got so many favorites and good reviews (seriously people, I wrote it while being bored, uninspired and, at that point, wasn't even a real Il Lupo/Fiora fan yet), I kindly want to thank everyone who gave me such positive feedback and encouraged my love for this amazing couple.
Anyway, Maffy and I were discussing the dialogue of this fic (whatever little there is, especially from Il Lupo's side since I see him as not much of a conversationalist), or rather, what's going on behind it. As a joke, I decided to translate the true "meaning" of their dialogue before the sex scene for her. Maf thought it was hilarious and suggested I should put this on DA. So here it is, the "actual conversation" between Il Lupo and Fiora. E

Stars glimmered overhead outshone by the fat end of month moon that provided plenty of light reflecting off the white powder under his feet. All was silent, preternaturally quiet. A silent night.

He was hunting.
The prey just did not know it yet.
His breath was a cloud of vapour surrounding his hooded head. Gently he set his foot down on top of a snow blanketed rock. It would not do to let the Redcoats hear his approach. He crouched eyes peeled towards the orange glow among the tall trees ahead. Pine, spruce and oak mixed together. Plenty of handholds a path for him over their heads. His lips stretched in a feral smile. If the men in red coats of the British army could have seen him at that moment, they would have thought of a wolf a wild savage animal without an

I was just getting settled into my new room when I heard the door open behind me. Looking back, I saw the browned face of a Redguard boy, maybe a year or two older than me. He wore the good-quality Imperial-style tunic and trousers that were common in the city of Solitude, and he was carrying a lute under one arm. We stared at each other in surprise for a moment, the corner of a bedsheet in my hand, until he finally stepped inside and closed the door behind him.
“You’ll have to forgive my surprise,” he said with a slight smile, putting his lute down on the desk next to his bed. “I didn’t realize that I was getting a roommate.”
“Yeah,” I responded, “sorry about that. I just got here this morning, and things have been a little crazy.”
“I imagine that it must have been. Crazy, I mean. Everyone else has been moved in for days, and classes start tomorrow.”

I broke my kiss with Dagny so suddenly that she gasped. She looked up at me, worried.
“Aventus,” she said in a hurt voice. “What’s wrong? Did I…”
“It’s Nelkir,” I said, looking past the top of her head. I looked down at her, seeing the confusion on her face. “He’s watching us,” I explained. Pavot growled low in his throat, but I put a light hand on the ice wolf’s muzzle to make him be quiet. Chastised, my companion backed away a few paces and laid down on the stone, but he never took his intense blue eyes off the Nord boy.
“That little creep,” she huffed, her pale face turning bright red in frustration. Dagny turned on her heel and began to stomp her way toward the edge of the veranda. When I looked back up to where Nelkir stood, his face was more relaxed—almost amused. I blinked rapidly, trying hard to retain the image of his furious expression.

The sound of birds chirping filled the air as the sun shone down on the grassy plains surrounding Whiterun. All around, deer roamed and drank from a small pond. However, they ran in fear as the sound of footsteps pressing down on the muddy ground filled their ears. No sooner had they ran, a team of three made their way over the grassy knoll, completely oblivious to the creatures that had previously inhabited that area. The leader of the group was a female Imperial with long, messy, black hair and war paint covering one of her eyes. She wore a set of ebony armor, minus the helmet and had an ebony sword sheathed at her side. Behind her was a male Breton wearing a different set of armor. Like the Imperial, he wore ebony armor. However, he wore a pair of steel plate boots with a Stormcloak Officer Hood and braces. On his back was his enchanted glass bow which he'd named 'Fear Fire'. And finally, trailing behind them, was a female Dark Elf with a blonde mohawk. Her

"I have no fear, no weakness, no pain, and no mercy."
Blood Drain is a Dremora from the plain of Oblivion. Though he used to be mortal once but he does not remember those times and does not care. He lives in Mehrunes Dagon's plain of Oblivion for it was he that put him there in the first place. If you ask this God of Destrution how he came to Oblivion he would say "He was once a mortal of kindness...I disliked him for he disliked me....so I had him killed...and send to my realm to be my eternal servent." Blood Drain is not his real name it is a name he gave to the mortals cause his real name could not be pronounced in mortal tougne. He has been in ever Elder Scrolls series but shown himself more in Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim. Blood Drain is centuries old but for a demon...he looks kinda good for his age.
His involvement in Morrowind was mostly Dagon's curiosity about Kammus- Azura's Champion- and there he helped him escape a cave that held Kammus there....though his intentions wer

The trip from Phelarion back to Triple Zero was one of the easiest runs I’d done in what felt like a long time. A dataspike into the slot in Galaar’s pilot console and we were just another commercial freighter, heading back to the depot from some supply drop or other. There was nothing in the fake signals that tied us to this mission, the dead troopers, or home.
Talk of what was next was rife among my team mates as I sat there in the pilot’s chair, scanning the ship to ensure that nothing was in need of repair, but more importantly to make sure that there hadn’t been any additions made, be they of the explosive or tracking variety. Once I was satisfied that the ship was clean, I set the link between my gauntlet datapad and the ship so that I would be alerted when we were sixty seconds from realspace reversion.

The Clone Wars: Battlefield Christophsis
The Clone Wars have begun, not two months have passed since the opening battle of the war on Geonosis and the planets of the Galactic Republic are under grave threat from the Confederacy of Independent Systems and their Droid Army. The Separatists control many of the hyperspace lanes that link the Republic together, effectively isolating member planets across the Republic and leaving them all but defenseless.
One such planet is the rich world of Christophsis. This planet is not only a major economic hub for the Republic, but it is one of the few planets which has allowed refugee camps upon its surface. Senator Bail Organa of Alderaan has been a major sponsor of these camps and was touring the planet when the Confederacy struck.
With only limited defensive forces, Christophsis was no match for the might of the Droid Army which quickly swept across the planet and conquered it save for a few scattered hold outs. Desperate both to secure t

I slouched down as far as I could without hurting myself, in the darkest of the dark booths in the back of the bar, quietly nursing a large glass of booze. The darkness reflected my mood rather well. Sure, I looked calm enough outwardly, but anyone fool enough to meet my eyes would see the cold fury burning there. Plenty of male spacers in the bar, but they showed a surprising display of good sense and utterly failed to hit on me. Which was good because in this position, my boot was in ideal striking range for certain sensitive areas of the male anatomy, and at that moment I was more than willing to kick any male who pissed me off where it hurt the most.

He saw light in a spectrum of intensity and colour, and it made him flinch. The sun's vibrant rays were filtered by the evergreen leaves of the forest, reflected by the blinding white snow that coated the mountains like icing on a sweetroll. It illuminated the pale, drawn expressions of other people - prisoners by their bound wrists – and in that moment, he realised he was among them. He whipped his head to one side and then the other, the end of his tail flicking against his ankles, but the rope was tough and chafed against his scales. No escape for him, or for anyone on the cart. He inhaled the earthen smell of the forest and its creatures, his own harsh scent lurking amongst that of the musky undergrowth.
