So here we are, just accomplished one of the things we sent off to do, and then we have to stop that and turn it back on. This is messed up, but at least I can ask Blake what's going on.
“So I'm going to ask the biggest question, why did you have us turn the magnetic propulsion back on Blake?” I say over the speakerphone.
"Well, turning it off would have fired us. We found the generator. Open Ion Fusion, and with this design, it doubles as the secondary propulsion." Good explanation, though I had no idea what open-
Alex meanwhile interrupts my train of thought with "I think I turned that secondary propulsion on. Meanwhile a pressing question, this ship has open ion fusion?"
"Yeah, ions being bombarded into each other into it's own personal sun. Hydrogen into Helium into Sodium ex-cetira. And it's a good thing you turned it on slowly. We only got a few flares." Miniature sun? That sent a bad feeling straight down my spine to the tip of my tail.
I ask "A few? And th

Saturday, Febuary 1
I wake to the sound of the A/C turning on with my face buried in my pillow like usual. I push myself up and over to the left side of the bed, I just sit there for a few minutes trying not to fall back to sleep, shaking my head, i reach over and grab my phone turning it on and checking the time " 4:59?" i mumble as I set it back down and stand up. Stretching, I look around my bedroom. In front of me was the walk in closet... nothing interesting there, behind me sat a lovely window that would shine light into my face each morning if i slept in to long, right to the left of it was "the center" a jumbled mass co

"Shane, did you order this?"
I look up to see mom holding a box about two feet wide and half as long held under one arm. I was helping fix up the tv they had gotten... oh which was a 56" wall mounted tv, my mom had never been good with electronics and even in twenty years she hasn't improved, though the claws made it a little harder, considering she was a dragon and all.
"Is it from Alex?" she looks and and replies with "Yes" I slide backwards away from the tv and get up.
"Wonder why it came to you... but yes I ordered it from him." I say as I stretch my wings and arms... yes wings, I'm a dragon, what do you expect? The wide open space allows me to reach my full span before folding them back up, the solid black was in contrast to the white walls and ceiling, which by the way was about 30 feet high, big

...The abyss stares back into you.
The boy crouched on the edge of the cliff overlooking the sea, he couldn't have been over thirteen or 5 foot 3 as he stared down over the edge to the rocks below with green eyes, tan cargo shorts and a navy blue t-shirt made up his attire. A tiny forest bordered the cliff behind him as two people, obviously his friends make their way through this forest to him...
"Max!" the older of the boys called to the boy on the cliff...
I sigh and look back at Kyle, his black hair moving just enough to see him standing a few feet behind him.
"What?" I asked causualy.
"Why'd you leave?" Jake asks, stuffing his hands into his baggy jeans, he was 6 feet tall and had spiky brown hair and a scar that ran just under his left eye, which was blue. He had taken off his shirt, reavealing the sweaty muscles underneath.
"That last hit from that giant just about made me lose my lunch... besides my asthma's acting up." I say as I stand and look

The chill hadn't left my spine since he had said the last sentence and made that creepy departure tactic of blending into the crowd.
I still had time left.... maybe just under three hours, until I could get a look at all those files that I took off their servers. I lean away from the table and keep watch at the crowds in my vision, his words had made me paranoid, just them knowing that I was alive was bad enough, but to know where I was and have someone like that keep watch? Damn nightmare was what it was.
I sigh and stand, no point in being here for now, but... I was going to go buy something before I left for "home" so that if certain issues arise they'll be taken care of. I advance up the levels

"NOOOOO! I'm up! I'm up!"
I hop out of bed at the mention of breakfast wraps...I was starving. Unfortunately when I hopped out of bed my foot gets into a wrong position and slip.

"Five minutes" It's then I notice something...
"She's downstairs staring down Ryan... That dog has to have been trained by someone, or be extremely intelligent because she actually let us know when she wanted to go out, she wiped her paws before going back inside and even turned the tv on."

It was a normal day, well not normal for me, wake up, get dressed and run around the base for morning exercise, but here's the difference, it was my ninteenth birthday, and I had taken off the next few days to do things... mainly just be lazy. But I get a phone call as I'm walking out after breakfast by someone that I didn't expect.
"Incoming call from: Shyren." Shyren? Hadn't heard from him in months. I accept the call and lobby outside.

“Don't make a sound, or we're both dead.” The voice whispers from behind me. The voices get steadily closer until they suddenly start fading, probably taking a turn on the hallway to another part of the floor. The grip around my throat kept tight until they were completely out of earshot, then he lets go, so I do the natural thing and whirl on him after a quick breath, but stop when I notice it's...
“Dominick?” I say, surprise managing to make it's way into my voice.
“What? Expecting it to be your little friend?” He says, voice lowered some as if he's afraid of being overheard.
Come to think of it “Yeah, I did expect it to be him, why the choking and the secrecy BS?” I ask, still tense.
“Because they don't trust me any, and they shouldn't, because of what they are about to do.” He says, taking a look out into the hallway.

Dreams - A Dragon TF by JargonHello there, dear reader! It looks like you're about to start reading this story ^.=.^Dreams - A Dragon TF by Jargon5 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
While I'm honoured that you'd like to read my works, I regrettably have to inform you that this story has been discontinued after eight chapters and a sidestory merge. There won't be any more chapters in this story, sadly.
I am however working on a new project that will hopefully outshine this old gal - it's going to be released some time in the future, and I hope you'll be there to read that was well.
If you can deal with this story ending abruptly with no end in sight, then by all means read on, and dream.
People dream. It's natural. Daydreams you usually control and you can make them whatever you want. Sometimes they get forgotten, sometimes they spring back to life after a long time, or just a heartbeat. Sometimes, they come true.

The thought kept going through my head, soon followed by seeng the original die, and it still sent chills down my spine. We had been flying back for the entire trip, I had looked out the window, we were going to a different base than before, we had passed over the advancing front lines, yet the base I expected to go back to was across the sea, but I could improvise... The team that I was fooling so well were curious to why I was here and one asked what happened...
"You don't want to know, it would give you nightmares for the rest of your life... but to put it simply, the general sold us out." I read reactions of suprise from behind their visors, though about half the team took off their helmets.
"What happened to him?" The same person asks.
"He tried to sell out his own guard too, I caught him trying to relay our position, so I relay a bullet to his head... I have a thing about betrayers." They keep silent after that, or chatting among themselves, I found out that ther

“Patch it in then.” I say to him from the desk, only to get the response “It's a courier Sir.” My head perks up, that's new. Important stuff came only by courier, and it's usually bad news. I get up and walk through the semi-tidy study, books and half-finished projects laying on tables and sometimes stacked on the floor. I pass by the full-length mirror on the way and catch a glimpse of myself. Black hair cut short and green eyes, slightly pale skin and wiry frame. Having black clothes made me almost blend in with the study's low-light conditions, sure, I could have the place bright as the sun... but who really wants that? So the brick fireplace and my computer monitors are the only source of light. I grab the door bolt and slide it back, “Send him in.” I say as I walk back to my desk, spinning the blac

“What's your plan to get past the Advantists?” He seemed to have calmed down some since the carrier, but I could still hear the tension in his voice... something was off.
“Pull some quick words, then hop aboard any transport to the mainland.”
“That's a little vague you know.”
“True, but there's plenty of room for improvisation in that plan. Plus I've used it before, and it worked that time around, so why not now?”
“Because the Advantists have extensive and almost obsessive record keeping, maybe you don't know, but the advantists have the strongest border security of all three sides, they haven't lost a single city they started off with. I think that tells you something, that the

I had trailed 101 from the apartment to halfway across the city... the sun had just started it's decline in the sky. There was something about flying that was strangely calming and yet thrilling... so much that I didn't notice where we were headed until it was just barely in sight.
“The apartments? That isn't the place I was thinking you'd head for one-oh-one.”
He air brakes and ends up grazing up beside me “Not just any apartments, yours... or rather that of the one you were cloned from.” He says nonchalantly.
“I know, but still, why here? The gov obviously knows where this place is and are watching it.”
He smirks, showing some of those large steak-knife teeth “That's the beauty of it, that's if they didn't think you were stupid enough to come back here, they guessed if you were compromised you would run, try to get out of moderate territory or something similar.”

The Dragon in Me Part1I was just walking around in the city. It was a wonderful day in the middle of the summer. The sun had just risen and was shining in my face. I had decided to take an early walk and was now on the way home. I was crossing the road when it happened. A car hit me from the side. When I was flying the whole time seemed to slow down and I felt something rush through my body. Then I blacked out and crashed against the wall. The driver of the car just went on like nothing had happened. For my luck the next passenger that saw me called the emergency ambulance. They came quickly and brought me to the hospital. When they found out who I was they informed my parents, who came as fast as the could. When they reached the hospital they were led to my room. I had to look terrible. Several bones broken, bleeding just like every where and to make it worse the doctor told them, that I had a concussion. He also told them that I had likely no chance to survive and they were even wondering why I was stillThe Dragon in Me Part16 years ago in Scraps More Like This

His clothes shredded within seconds as his size doubled, and his body grew wings and a tail.

Then I think "OH **** he's becoming a full dragon!" I back away more as his tail finishes into a two tip style with a spike out of each end, and his body stops lenghtening and the muzzle finishes.

I bump into a wall, the window long since shattered and melted. I look over the edge and stop.
Skeletons in suits and lab coats were strewn on the floor, all in various states of panicking. I could feel the air literally pulling at my back, was it the ring? Nevertheless It encouraged me to jump over the low wall and end up just barely missing the skull of someone. A deep rumble shakes the building and I stumble, kicking the head of a skeleton.
A jolt runs down my spine.

Hello ladies, gentlemen, dragons and dragonesses allow me to introduce myself. Most of my friends call me "Wattojawa". I live near 3 small towns in York County Pennsylvania.

Four people met in a park in Madrid, one woman and three men. All of them looked rather worried, despite the nice and warm weather. The place they were standing was hidden from direct sight, but open enough to look for possible pursuers. They all had business suits on, except the woman, who was wearing clothing appropriate for the weather conditions. All of them were at least past their sixties, featuring at least a few white straws in their hair. They all nodded to each other as they met.

He pulled a few papers out of his suit and handed them to the others, who distributed them among themselves.

I see the red and blue cadaucius on the underside and knew it was the medical transport they sent out, took them only five minutes to get here.
