The Long Night Between Stars
Part 1: "Humility"
Chaunn took a deep, calming breath, rather exaggerating the effect after her brief show of enthusiasm. No enforced vacation. No missed details in her most important case. A partner who, while not a warrior, might still prove himself invaluable in her quest to rid the universe of the vile Ka'arlo'tii clan. She gestured to Bak'udrin-de to follow her up the corridor toward The Night Runner's living quarters.
"Let me introduce you to Runner and get you and your gear situated."
The younger yautja picked up his duffle bag and his sandals and followed quickly. He glanced over his shoulder once, as he heard muffled clicks and thumps coming from behind the closed airlock door.
Chaunn heard the faint sounds as well and asked him, "Something not strapped down in the shuttle?" To this Baku only shrugged, but his scent had changed again to what Chaunn had begun

A city where freedom was guaranteed with nothing more than a signature. A city far from the shores of the democracy that I had grown up in, a place where utopia would reign and the thoughts of responsibilities and fear would be nothing more than distant memories.
That was years ago.
Today, Rapture is nothing more than a festering, rotting corpse underneath the ocean, where the citizens run rampant and addicted to ADAM to the point they'd kill for it.
Whatever happened to my vision ?
My vision was to create a world where one would happy; instead, I unintentionally created a mad world the likes of which are unrivaled.
This is not how I wanted my life to end, miserable and alone, but fate deals a harsh hand in life, and I found myself betting it all for nothing.
Sofia Lamb is now the leader of my city, her religious banter to the countless Splicers have brainwashed them into literally look up to her as a god of some kind. Fools.

Princess Matilda could not think of how long she had been stuck in the cell. It started rather innocently. The mongoose princess was informed that the Raiju D.E.L. chapter has been preparing a new offensive against her father’s kingdom, Chun-Nan, so she and her good friend Li Moon, whom was visiting her at that time, have decided to sneak into the Raiju’s Iron Fortress to look for clues. Unfortunately, the girls grossly underestimated the fortresses security and leader of the Raiju. They were both captured and imprisoned. The Bride of the Conquering Storm, grandmaster of the Raiju DEL chapter certainly took advantage of having the princess of an enemy kingdom in her clutches. The lynx woman regularly visited Matilda in her cell and tried to milk the princess for any information regarding Chun-Nan or the Freedom Fighters.

A loud scream resonated around the cell as the partially legionized Conquering Storm struck

It was another bright and sunny day down over in Twinleaf town. The Starlies were chirping a happy tune, trying to attract their destined mating partners. Wild trees were finally showing some kind of blending colors as their green leaves slowly turned to fifty different shades of brown. Such a scene left Hikari speechless no matter how many times she saw it.
"If you keep your mouth open like that flies will fly in." Jun commented, breaking Hikari out of her trance as he jumped out from behind her. He grabbed the gaping bluenette around the shoulders and held her lovingly against his chest. "Jeez, you sure are a handful!"
"I'm a handful?" She snapped. Hikari turned her body as much as Jun would allow her to yank on a handful of his blonde hair. "This is coming from the boy who can't sit still for more than three seconds."

"It is looking like a beautiful, sunny weekend for all of you fine folks heading out to the mountains this weekend!" the voice from the radio buzzed loudly throughout the small town home. "A wonderful chance to strap on those skis and explore the beautiful mountain sides."
A pearly smile spread across the listeners thin face, as she rummaged through her carefully packed bag; a set of delicate fingers checking off the final items from the list. The room filled with music as the radio began playing the newest hit tunes, and Rainbow Dash bobbed her head to the heavy beat. A quick glance to the left revealed that it was almost time to go.
"Awe, yeah!" Rainbow Dash zipped up the backpack sized parcel and tossed it to the front door. "This weekend is going to be perfect! I can't believe I'm spending the whole weekend with the gang in the mountains, and it was so nice of Applejack's family to let us use their cabin."

"No matter how much you insult it, it won't care." A man sighed behind her. The ponytailed brunette spun around, staring wide-eyed as she came face to face with her childhood friend. "An oven is an inanimate object, it doesn't have feelings."
"I knew that Mr. I-Know-Everything-Black." White snapped at the brown haired teen. "Thanks for eavesdropping on my failure."
Black waved a hand in the air, chuckling as White puffed out her cheeks annoyed. He grinned, opening the oven and to his amazement, he could see burnt chocolate in the pan.
"You were making brownies?" Black blinked.
"I-Well-I tried anyway." White stuttered, blushing madly.
"That's sweet, who they for?" Black tried not to smile as White's face turned a deeper shade of red.
"It's valentine's day, so I thought you'd like brownies." White explained quietly. "You always loved the stuf
Mad Rav"Mad Mod, Great..." Raven sighed sarcastically looking around the playhouse herself and the Titans were fooled in being trapped in. The Titans fought many dangerous and deadly villains that always put their lives at risk. Mod was on the other spectrum, a villain who was more obnoxious and a simple pain to them. An old geezer trying to reclaim the US to the Britain while trying to hypnotise them into joining them that only ever affects the dim witted Beast Boy.Mad Rav5 months ago in General Fiction More Like This
After he tried taking city hall, Raven and the Titans fought him back where he lead them here, where Mod was quick to separate them in his automotive funhouse. They've been through all this before, he'll try hypnotising them all, they will all break free (bar the drooling Beast Boy) then tear this place down till they find Mod and smash his cane.
"Ello my deary, always a pleasure to make your acquaintance. I hope you are well ducky" Mod's annoying voice echoed in the hall making Raven cringe.

In the late hours of the night, a mighty thunderstorm raged outside the Carousel Boutique. Rarity, the store's sole proprietor, lied awake in her bed gazing at a picture of herself with a specific purple earth pony stallion with a green mane. Casually, she looked at the heart shaped frame next to it on her nightstand. A photograph of a small young green and purple dragon was held within it. 'Oh Spike, why do you always seem to be out of town when I need you the most.' She thought to herself.
The blue eyed unicorn mare quickly sat up in her bed when she heard the door to her bedroom slowly creek open. A white unicorn filly with green eyes and a curly purple and pink mane and tail, poked her head into the room.

The Trust Fall(read description first! =3) It was raining outside that day, thunder cracking, shells thundering right outside the little house. We were in the middle of a war between our species. We being Ty and I of course, an odd pair of friends but a pair nonetheless. We huddled tensely in the abandoned modern home while outside in the muck, biological giants of 15 feet were locked in combat with mechanical giants, mechs inhabited by 6 foot humans. The rumbling around Ty and I indicated the close proximity of this war but we? We were two at peace, huddling right behind his enemy's lines. Though they were my people's lines as well. Ty the human, I the giant. While the two of us, misfits of our own societies, hid away in the rattled little human abode, bombs exploded abruptly around the war torn area.The Trust Fall3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

"White!," A male's voice called. The brunette spun around to see her childhood friend, Black. He sighed, shrugging off his blue jacket quickly and wrapped the warm fabric around her shoulders.
"Stop standing here alone and let's go home."
White looked up at the brown haired teen as he grinned at her.
"You're never alone," He murmured, taking her hand and leading her out of the clearing.
Because I'll always be here for you.

True to his word, Black didn't let White set a foot on the ground until they entered Nimbasa City. Even though his aching legs protested under the extra weight of his partner, he had trekked on.
Black carefully set his friend down on the pavement, stretching his arms above his head as if it was nothing. But, in reality, he was sore all over. Carrying White all the way down the route had appeared to be a brave, strong, and basically badass move at the time. Now, though, he was paying for it.
White sighed, removing her cap from her head and brushing the sand off of it. "You didn't have to pick me up, you know. I could've beaten that wuss in a second." She claimed, tilting her chin up in defiance.
Black gave his signature nonchalant shrug in return. "That's what you said about the rich boy. And the trainer before that. And the trainer before that. And-"
"Okay, okay! I get it!" she cut him off. White reached up and pulled Black's cap over his eyes, scowling at him. "You don't have to rub i

Akasha's jaws continued to work their way over what was left of her dinner. With most of my body already deep inside her, the throat muscles were doing most of the work now – peristalsis massaging me deeper into the depths of the hungry snake. With every swallow she made a rippling wave surged through her throat muscles and I would be forced a few inches further. It was a slow, tedious trip through the incredibly tight passage.
Akasha was known as the 'Dragon-Eater' around these parts, and she was certainly living up to her name in this situation. I had only stopped for a quick drink and before I knew it she was upon me, and already had my head in her maw. She obviously didn't think me much of a threat, as she never even bothered to constrict me first!
I grumbled to myself as I thought of how humiliating this was. I couldn't really do much besides think actually. My wings were pressed almost uncomfortably against my sides by her esophagus, and my legs were dangling help
UaW: Mobius Assault PrologueSonic woke up again from another bad dream. Lately he'd been having bad dreams, so he couldn't sleep much. It was the same dream he had every time. He dreamt that all of his friends would be gone, and that one day, he would be, too. Sweat pouring from his face, he decided to get up instead of bothering to try and get some rest. Taking a look at his alarm clock, he could see it was still four in the morning, still dark out. He got up out of his bed, and left to go take a shower, and have his favourite breakfast: chilli dogs.

He set out his path like he always did, this time planning a new course which would be about two minutes longer than usual. First, he would head over to Sally Acorn's place, then to Tails' place, than back and forth between Shadz's place and the Freedom Fighter's headquarters one hundred times, then to the G.U.N. headquarters, and finally end up on the beach to relax and hopefully watch the sunrise.

It was Dr. Light again, honestly, did that guy not know when to give up? At first it seemed like it would be the usual routine, Raven would scare the pee out of him and he'd beg to go to jail... but not this time... this time, somehow, some way, he wised up, as soon as the Titans arrived on scene he aimed some sort of paralyzing blast at Raven and shot her to the ground, "Raven!" the others screamed, "Titans!

Cileria’s eyes dart around anxiously as she slowly slithers into a clearing, the jungle has become silent as if anticipating some grim future event. The young Naga is all too familiar with this kind of silence, it’s the same kind of eerie quiet she hears when she is ready to strike at her prey. She can usually overpower most creatures in the part of the forest she is from, but there are much bigger predators this deep in the jungle.
She has just stumbled out into the open in her day and a half pursuit of food. With no good cover she agonizes over each movement, laying low, preferring to stay hidden amongst the overgrowth. Her mind is racked, questioning her foolish decision to follow that Neko hunting party for this long, and exposing herself to the prying eyes of much larger predators. Cileria’s mind refocuses as the cracking of dead lumber echoes through the large silent clearing. The Neko’s suddenly start spea

such a man of science
a man a weather and
a man of caution
who felt such pain
for those that were hit
by all of the bad storms
that blew their lives apart
from Alabama to Kansas
and every place that tornados walk
where ever good people's lives
were ripped to shreds and taken
Tim always strove to help
to try to save so many
he was always out there
on the plains of America
searching for a way to save
everyone from the dangers
that Mother Nature threw at us all

this poem is for you
I honor your memory, always

You'll Be Fine (NewRedShipping Drabble)Heavy wheezes, a face flushed in blotches of a sickly kind of red, spreading down the boy’s neck and arms-- that was all in which could be seen to heard if one was to look at the black-haired boy at this point in time. Laid down on one of the cheap couches in the room, eyes wide with fear as his nerves spiralled out of control and his usual cool fled from him quicker than he could retain, it was obvious that Brendan was panicking...and he had every right to do so. Beside him sat-- knelt-- the girl in which he loved; the girl in which cared for him so deeply, yet made such a foolish mistake that had accidentally, and much to her complete and utter shock, caused for the Hoenn champion to break out into a near full-blown anaphylactic reaction.You'll Be Fine (NewRedShipping Drabble)9 months ago in Romance More Like This

The male made his way silently up the stairs of the banquet hall and into the grey room, shutting the door behind him.
Brendan almost regretted being named Hoenn's New Champion, there were far too many parties, and much too many people he could not trust with even a shred of truthful information about himself. Even among the crowd downstairs, who seemed to always chatter about the same mindless things, he felt so isolated and alone.
He hated the press and the gossip and the interviews and yes, every single stupid girl that threw themselves at him without a second thought. It was almost as if he were lost in a dream; no longer was a single thing real. No longer could he trust. No longer could he talk. He hated it. The boy could almost bring himself to hate all of those people.
But the second he heard, very faintly, the sound of emotional notes carrying from the bowels of the Pokemon League Banquet Hall, it

"Then you should have stayed home." Black snapped at the brunette, become irritated by her constant whining. "I told you I was going to walk all the way to Driftveil City. I told you to stay home. I told you it was going to be a long walk but you just had to come."
White shut her mouth, and adverted her eyes away from the brunette. "You don't have to be mean about it. You should have just said 'don't come',"
"You know I can't," Black grumbled, stopping to look at her.
Her heart began to race as she heard those words come out of his mouth. White blushed and scratched her cheek nervously, pursing her lips at the same time. Even though she already knew what he was going to say before she asked, she wanted to hear it from his own lips. "Why?"

Black was only a couple years older than White. They have been friends since they were in diapers. They used to do everything together. The two used to have sleepovers when they were too little to know about hormones. When they outgrew childish games of house and dollies, they would go and wonder into the tall grass, dreaming of their first adventure. The day Black turned 16, was the day both of them and their other friends, Cheren and Bianca, got their first pokemon.
White smiled as she recalled good memories. It had been only 4 years since Black defeated Team Plasma and obtained Zekrom, one of the legendary dragons. Only a year after that, he had become the youngest champion of Unova. To this very day, i
