Flames Never DieFlames never die, for embers always live,
The spirit of a fighter, only so much can give,
Through adversity, sorrow, fear and pain,
The flame of a hero, dims in that relentless rain,
But even in the great monsoon, the flames do not die,
For one faint ember lives on,
Rescued in love before it was gone,
Nurtured with kindling of friendship and care,
Sheltered with love from fear's evil lair,
The light is small, quivering cold,
But day by day the flame blooms,
And cheerful laughter emerges from the glooms,
Still it's not quite there, not what it once was,
For once it was the flame of a spirited leader,
A fighter who could not be defeated,
In time the flames will recover,
History will say there is no other,
No leader so great, no fighter so brave,
No will so steadfast, so determined to save,
May his flames never die, and his embers always live.

Ch.8: Behind the Scenes
NOTE: if you are just reading the story for the first time now STOP. Skip to the BOTTOM of the page, click the link (FIRST) and start from the beginning please. I write with assumption that everyone knows what's going on already from reading everything before this.
"Things aren't always what they seem
You're only seeing part of me
There's more than you could ever know
Behind the scenes
I'm incomplete and I'm undone
But I suppose like everyone
There's so much more that's going on
Behind the scenes"

Finding out that the Pokémart in Phenac city didn't have any Poké balls had not been a very welcome surprise. Then again, Ray supposed it hadn't been much of a surprise, there weren't many wild Pokémon in Orre so there wasn't any demand for Poké balls. He had to admit, if it hadn't been for Sam insisting on asking around they wouldn't have learned that the Outskirt Stand may have s

In a world far from your own there is a paradise, or at least what used to be a paradise. Aourus, a paradise lost. Lost because humans fear what they do not fully understand. In your world this same war was waged, but only in myth and legend.
This story which you are about to see unfold is a story of triumph over evil, and triumph over fear. The events that would set the stage for this story were predicted thousands of years ago, but only began just over one-hundred years ago; when the human king Cillian murdered a young, yet eminent dragon. When he was confronted about the murder, by the enraged and confused Dragon Lord Deynric, who had been hurt deeply by Cillian's betrayal, he declared that the Dragons of Aourus were conspiring to wipe out the humans, and that all dragons must be killed. Unfortunately despite the prophecy that had warned them of the danger, the Dragons were not prepared. Humans and dragons had been

The aging leader of SmolderClan lifted her head from her paws at the sound of her medicine cat’s voice.
“PebbleStream, come in my friend.” She replied.
A beautiful gray and brown mackerel tabby she-cat walked into PatchLight’s den, a grave look clouding her face.
“The time has come again.” PebbleStream told her cryptically.
“What do you mean?” PatchLight asked her ears pinned back in the fear of what she thought PebbleStream was talking about.
Many, many moons before a great danger had come that had threatened the existence of all five clans, but one cat had come from outside the clans, destined to save them; IceStorm, and she had. Near the time of her death a prophecy was given that such a cat would come for more times, once for each clan.
“The time for a destined cat from the outside to save us all has come once again.” PebbleStream replied, confirming PatchLight’s fears.

ch.4 On My Own
"Just keep my mind burning strong,
Into the gapping emptiness I'll go
On my own,
On my own,
On my own,
On my own,"
~Broken Iris "On My Own"
The farther that Ray drove from the hideout, the more he allowed himself to think about what he was going to do next. He usually didn't allow himself to think too much, about anything, for very long; his thoughts would always wander back to memories that he would much rather forget, forever; no matter how hard her tried to keep them on the future, but he knew that he had to make some sort of plan. There was one thing that he already knew would be a nonnegotiable part of his plan, he would be, forevermore, on his own; he would never give his heart, what was still left of it, to another human being ever again. Other than that he really had no idea. He supposed that he would just do what he had done before Team Snagem had lured him in. But where would he go? That was his biggest question.
Up ahead, Ray could see w

Soft golden light streamed through an uncovered window onto the still sleeping form of a golden haired boy. He wasn't really a boy, he was 16 years old, but in sleep he looked so innocent and vulnerable that it was hard to think of him as anything else. He had clearly fallen asleep in the middle of reading; the hard corner of his book digging harshly into his cheek.
A harsh noise, somewhere between a beeping and a buzzin
