Mabari Age, Short 4His Girl was leaning against him, arms around his neck as she sobbed quietly. He felt her distress, her sorrow, and knew what it meant to experience loss. He was a Good Dog, so he let her cry on him and licked her face to clean it of tears. The man, the one she called Alistair, smelled of similar sadness. Alistair had tried to comfort his Girl several times, but she had just hugged him tighter and Dane had snarled him away.Mabari Age, Short 44 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
The Witch did nothing to comfort his Girl. If anything, she made his Girl feel worse. Dane took great pains to keep his Girl away from the Witch when he could, bristling and snarling when the Witch got too close. He would tolerate her Bad Words towards himself, but he would not allow her to belittle his Girl.
His Girl began scratching his ears and Dane huffed. He appreciated her love, but she was the one who needed comfort, not him. The man, Alistair, Dane recognized the looks he gave his Girl. His Girl returned them when the man wasn't looking and Dane cocked his h

He bounded after the New Thing and found a miniature person, barely as tall as he. The Small One laughed and Dane decided he liked the sound of it and allowed the Small One to pet him. Dane bounded around the Small One and then heard the whistle of his Girl. He turned immediately and padded back to her, aware that the Small One was following him.
His Girl looked surprised, and then amused. "Find yourself a friend, boy?"
Dane whuffed and the Small One giggled behind him.
"Puppy!" the Small One clapped and hugged Dane's neck. Dane decided he also liked the feel of the Small One's touch. It made him want to protect the Small One, almost like he did with his Girl, and he grinned.
"You know, if he comes with us he'll have to fight darkspawn," his Girl pointed out.
Mabari Age, Short 3He did not stop running until he could smell her. He had run for days, desperation pushing him to limits he was not certain he could meet, but he could smell her now. She was alive, she was safe. Sorrow clung to her like a blanket, but he had found her.Mabari Age, Short 34 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
The road beneath his paws churned under his speed, and he skidded to a stop before her, barking a warning at her and her Traveling Ones. He smelled Bad Ones following him, had been for days, and he hated himself for bringing them straight to his Girl. He turned and let his anger surge into his growl as he planted himself between them and his Girl.
Her surprise was thick in the air, but she recognized him, and was glad for him. He would prove he was a Good Dog, one Bad One at a time. He threw himself at them as they approached, and felt her Traveling Ones fight beside him. The Bad Ones were demolished in moments, and he stood proudly among them, ready to accept her love or her spite, whichever she felt fit to give him.

Mabari Age, Short 2He smelled her before he woke. His vision was blurry, but he deserved it. Bad Dogs did not deserve to see well. But he could still smell her, and felt the kennel-master giving him some kind of elixir.

He looked up and saw the woman from before, the one who spoke to him like his Man, and she was smiling at him. Something in him strained for her, that empty piece of him began to fill, and he needed her. He needed to please her, to protect her, but the weakness in him dragged him back to the earth even as he whined at her.
He could hear them talking even as his vision started to clear.
"What will happen to him now?" the female sounded worried. She was afraid for him? He did not des no. He did. He did deserve her. He wanted to prove himself to her. He would prove that he was worthy of her, that he was a Good Dog.

Mabari Age, Short 7Dane was curious.Mabari Age, Short 74 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
His Girl had gone into her tent and, oddly, Alistair had followed her in. He was hearing odd sounds from in the tent and his Girl kept crying out. The Crow seemed amused, and Dane had chased him away when he tried to creep closer to the tent. Zevran had pouted but not tried again. He was Not Stupid, after all.
Dane whuffed and trotted towards the tent, hackles raised. It sounded suspiciously like Alistair was hurting his Girl. That would not be tolerated.
He poked his head through the tent flap and Alistair looked up at him, mortified. His Girl was on the tent floor, looking up at him upside-down and she burst out laughing. Dane narrowed one eye at Alistair and huffed knowingly, grinning when the man turned red.
"Kalliaaaaaan " Alistair whined, "Your dog is leering at me."
His Girl laughed again and shooed Dane out with her hands. Dane whuffed and backed out of the tent obediently, wagging his tail.
He was a Good Dog, and he had done a Good Thing. He sat b
Mabari Age, Short 5Dane was furious! This Bad Man had tried to kill his Girl. He burned with the urge to bring the Bad Man down by the throat and rip him apart. Alistair smelled of similar hate; Dane could hear the anger surging through the man's blood, eager to strike down the Bad Man before them. Dane approved of Alistair then. He approved the urge to defend his Girl, and Alistair rose in his estimations.Mabari Age, Short 54 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
But his Girl wanted to let him live. Only her touch on his head kept Dane from flying through the air, but he was a Good Dog, and he waited obediently. He didn't have to like it, though. Leliana was the only one who was not wanting to rip the Bad Man to pieces. Dane did not understand. She had seemed so intelligent, speaking with him in camp, addressing him as an equal. Why was she being unreasonable now? She should want to kill the Bad Man! The Bad Man had almost killed his Girl.
This was not to be tolerated.
Dane did not understand. His Girl was helping the Bad Man to his feet. His name was Zevran.
Mabari Age, Short 1He had failed his Man. Even as he lay in agony with the Bad Ones' taint burning in his blood, he knew only that he had failed his Man. His Man had trusted him with his life, trusted him to protect him, and he had failed. He was a Bad Dog for failing his Man.Mabari Age, Short 14 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
The ache was phenomenal. Part of him had severed at the death of his Man, the Bond breaking him as surely as any sword, and he knew he deserved the pain. He deserved worse. He should have taken the blade for his Man, he should have been closer, should have done something to help him.
But he had been too far away, too surrounded by the Bad Ones, to help his Man. When the ones who smelled like Bad Ones but were not, the 'Grey Wardens,' had come he had let himself be dragged away.
Now he lay in a cell, an open cage, dreading the loss in his heart that is the empty space of his Man. He remembered when he had first met his Man. He was smaller then, a pup, and the first time he laid eyes on his Man it had felt like a piece of him
Mabari Age, Short 10Dane watched as Alistair set his Girl on the pyre, helpless and hating himself for failing her. He was a Bad Dog, after all. Alistair stood beside Dane as his Pack lit the pyre, away from the others, not wanting their comforts or sympathies.Mabari Age, Short 104 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"It's just you and me now, boy," Alistair whispered, still crying the loss of their Girl.
His fingers buried in Dane's fur and Dane leaned into the touch, feeling that piece of him stir. Perhaps he wasn't so alone after all.
Mabari Age, Short 9His Girl wasn't moving. She had taken him with her up to the top of the Bad Place and there he had seen the Evil One which his Girl called the Archdemon. It smelled of death and corruption and tainted things, and he had thrown himself into the battle with abandon.Mabari Age, Short 94 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Now the Evil One lay dead, slain by his Girl, but she lay motionless beside it. He licked her face, whining, not understanding. His Girl was invincible. She had killed many things more impressive than this Evil One. This was not the time for her to be sleeping! His Girl must be very tired to have fallen asleep here, amidst all this smell of death.
Alistair was nearby, his Sword on the ground in front of him as he knelt at his Girl's side, and he smelled of grief and sadness. Dane whined and lay down beside his Girl, resting his head on her chest. She was just tired. She just needed to rest, and then she would wake up and rub his ears and call him a Good Boy and everything would be Right again.
Only it wouldn't.

Just seconds before, Radditz had smashed his elbow into his brothers, Kakarott's face, after Kakarot or Son Goku as the people of Earth called him, had released his tail in a shining moment of stupidity. The only chance for Goku and his new-found ally Piccolo to defeat their much more powerful enemy, the Saiyan Radditz, was gone in the blink of an eye. Piccolo couldn't believe that his former arch-enemy would be so easily tricked into such a predicament by a devious Saiyan's lies.

Living with both the Ginyu-Force and the saiyans made her life hard. She had been divided from her younger brother, she was completely helpless.
Living in a world of men, she helped herself through the dark ways of destiny. A servant girl. A halfblood. Half Saiyan, half Felidae race. Bass. Stupid name, Prince Vegeta always thought. She had told him the meaning of her name once. It was the name of a goddess from planet Felis, were her mother came from.
To Vegeta, it sounded less than common. Boring. Stupid.
But it was not her name that bothered him. It bothered him that she was late. Once again.
Vegeta growled. When he said Dance!, she had to dance. When he said Bow!, she had to take a bow.

Vegeta was regretting promising to look after Trunks for the day, and he mentally berated himself for not asking his mother-in-law to take over.
Realizing that he couldn't train all day as Bulma would kill him for not taking proper care of his son, Vegeta decided to ask Trunks what he wanted to do, and the demi-saiyan had replied cheerfully that he wanted to go to the cinema.
So Vegeta disappeared to get changed leaving Trunks to bounce around the living room in excitement, yelling out different movies they could watch at the local cinema.
After deliberately taking his time just to wind up Trunks, he emerged from his and Bulma's bedroom, picked up his wallet, grabbed Trunks by the scruff of his neck and left the house.
Trunks calmed down a little when Vegeta let go of him, chuckling when Trunks landed flat on his face and whined about it.
After threatening to take him back, Trunks behaved himself.
The pair walked alongside each other quite happily.

She collapsed backwards onto the bed with a sigh and grabbed another pillow, wrapping it around her ears to block out the sound of pots and pans banging around below. It wasn't as loud anymore, but she was no longer comfortable. After

I could still remember her screams and pleas.
"You're a sick, horrible child. Get out of my sight." I clung tightly onto my rabbit plush doll and continued to stare at her. My perfect mother.
She coughed, smoking her cigarette and drinking down another bottle of alcohol. Her face was shrouded in foundation and messed-up black make-up but everything was symmetrical nonetheless. She loved symmetry; she was obsessed with it. It was somewhat of a psychological disorder. And she hated me because of that.
"You're so ugly," she would always point out and either tug my hair or lean and stare at me menacingly. I was born with three white stripes on my jet black hair and no matter how many times my mother tried to dye my hair or cut it off, it would always show.
