She was gone. The asari had completely vanished. Osirus had attempted to get her to respond, but she was nowhere in sight. Even Anders and Jhun couldn’t spot her over their access to the security panels.
“She’s slipped off-cam,” Anders said. “She’s good at being sneaky, it seems.”
“Dammit!” Terrenus growled. “Find her.”
“There are too many asari, Commander,” the human responded. “I can’t differentiate between them.”
The rust-colored turian shook his head and glanced around, his blue gaze searching the asari as well as picking out Osirus slipping inconspicuously through the market.
“She is a Spectre,” the gray-plated turian pointed out.
“I know, but she’s still on the team. If she gets into trouble…” Again, Terrenus shook his head. “No… No, Vutali’s the priority. If we find her, we find her.”

Chapter 1 Observations and Flashbacks
It was dark on the bridge. Only a few passive sensors and essential systems were still online and emitted an eerie glow on the faces of their operators. The captain sat in the middle of the oval room, facing the slanted window in the front part. He sat there, leaned forward, elbows on his knees, hands folded and his chin on his thumbs. Only 2 other people were on the bridge with the captain, both of them totally quiet. The sensor operator was completely concentrated on his task, but the helmsman was fast asleep, breathing silently. I can't blame him, it IS boring to just watch... the captain thought.
They were on a reconnaissance mission for over 10 cycles now and they still had another 20 to go. The whole ship was powered down to a minimum to give their ta

The city was buzzing with talk of what had become known as 'the slums incident.' Twilight and Archangel were walking through the market, dressed in black hooded jumpers. The white hood and cloak that was used to be their disguise was now the only thing giving away their identity. Since they were taking some time off to recover, and owing to the fact that the spring festival had started and the city was in a state of peace, there wasn't much need for them to intervene in anything. Archangel was still walking with a limp, the injury he sustained to his hind leg healing slower than normal because he couldn't find the time to rest it. Since he and David were the least injured members of the team, they had taken it upon themselves to not only take care of the others, but to also train the four new recruits that had joined them, three ponies and one griffin. The one that Twilight was most surprised to see was a white Earth pony with green eyes and a silvery mane and tail. Not long before the
Griffin Rider: First FlightThe morning broke as it always did in this part of the world, slowly at first as the sun fought to rise above the low rolling hills and then poured down upon the sheltered depressions between them. Caleb's eyes opened slowly as he yawned mightily, stretching out his stiff joints. He lifted himself from Bracken who crooned softly as he lifted his head out from under his wing, clicking his beak and warbling a good morning.Griffin Rider: First Flight1 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Good morinng to ye as well." Caleb said gruffly as he turned to stroke Bracken's mane.
The griffin clicked his beak and began to preen himself, cleaning away the morning dew clinging to his feathers as Caleb brought out his feed. Bracken set about eating eagerly as Caleb checked over their gear. He didn't expect any of their companions to have taken anything but old habits died hard.

After all, a fully armed and armored rider and griffin were intimidating to say the least. Granted given that by nature of the fact that Bracken had to be able to fly with all the gear the armor was relatively light. Only the griffin's breastplate and skullcap were iron. The rest was hardened leather reinforced with bronze barding. His own armor was equally light. Consisting of hardened studded leather. Over the years of constant fighting he'd acquired a shirt of chain mail to wear beneath the leather and a scale mail vest to wear on the exterior. The triple layered armor wasn't the strongest thing he could've worn but it protected Caleb well enough. He wore leather chaps with inlaid chain mail and iron plates covering his thighs and shins. He wore a simple iron skullcap to protect his balding pate.Griffin Rider: A Meeting2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

At more than seven inches tall, Smidge is big for a Pixie. In every other physical respect though, she is a typical specimine of her kind - small, slender and delicate-looking, with shimmering dragonfly-like wings, long, sharply-pointed ears, and large dark eyes. Her short-cropped pink hair conceals a pair of feathery, retractable antennae, which detect the presence of magical energy in much the same way that an insect's antennae detect smells. Although most of her kind are perfectly comfortable flitting about buck-naked, Smidge wears a suite of Pixie-sized plade-armor, specially fashioned for her by a kindly Dwarven smith. The straps and clasps of this armor are equipped with quick-release catches that allow the individual plates to pop-off harmlessly, should Smidge accidentally expand too large for her suite to contain.

Joint Base Andrews lay in a cloak of darkness, a steady rain fell, slowly picking up, from a soft drizzle to a raging torrent. The black canvas of sky was split in a blue fissure of lightning, an early morning silence was shattered, thrown out of place by a rolling roar of the thunder, a remnant of the short lived bolt. An orange haze hung over the base, caused by the lights that pierced the jet black air. VC-35, a Boeing 787 Dreamliner converted to an air-lifter, famous for transporting the President of the United States, the airframe lay tucked away in the hangar, the walls of the structure taking the direct force of the early dawn thunderstorm.

I take my sword. I take my bow.

Look upon my tragedy of scars,
It tells us more, than these stars.
There is no more time to hate,
Because failing is my fate.

The angels they will here my call.

While some travel underground on the subway
And others commute by automobile to return home
All impatiently enduring the slow traffic jams of rush hour
Exhausted from their jobs in this iridescent, busy city
The streets are like the veins, the blood flow of the city
Congested with the constant overflow of cars
