Yuuka, a new member of Lune, together with her partner, Byakomon, a white fox digimon. Despite just joining, she, along with other members of Lune, as well as the other organisations, were asked to combat whatever was threatening the Astra dorm located in the Digital World.
Yuuka: "Is this your home Byakomon?"
Byakomon: "I can't remember anything, and I hatched in your world as well."
They were informed of what the black mass of fog were capable of; shapeshifting into the worst fears of anyone. However Yuuka was determined to face it, if she performs well on her first mission in Lune, it might give her higher recognition, probably enough to get more information of where her "other" friend might be.
At first Yuuka tried to follow some of the other members, but eventually she herself got lost inside the damaged Astra structure.
Byakomon: "Yuu-chan, its coming."
Yuuka: "Yeah, I think I see it..."
In front of them, a black mass of fog was slowly approaching them.
The Rogue SuccubusIt was Friday and Alice was not listening again. Her teacher, Mrs. Brown seemed to drag a subject out for ages. This time she was telling them about the anatomy of mortal men again. They seemed to hear these facts almost every day. It was simple: Penis enters vagina. He cums, you suck out his soul from his mouth, which always happens when men cum, even though they dont see or know it. The bell rang signalling the end of school for the week. Alice sighed in relief and packed her bag up. The teacher called out the homework for the weekend. A groan left the mouth of every student in the class. Alice left school and trekked back to her boarding room which she shared with another succubus and a lamia. She entered the room and it was empty as always, her roommates classes ended half an hour later because they were older than her.The Rogue Succubus5 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

"Happy is he among men upon earth who has seen these mysteries!
It is generally accepted among historical scholars that the cult of Demeter and Persephone, or Kore, existed in Greece and the surrounding Mediterranean islands long before the traditional Olympian gods became entrenched. Her origins are Cretan . Like Aphrodite, the mother and daughter goddess represent a matriarchal form of fertility worship in the forms of crops and nature, and through this the cycle of birth, growth and death. This myth, however, has taken hold of imaginations from its evolutions into the Eleusinian mysteries of Ancient Greece, to the paintings of Victorian Europe, to today, each with their own distinctive takes and emphases on the story. Perhaps it is the fact that we know so little about the original tale of Persephone the daughter of Demeter, goddess of fertility, snatched

EDIT: As of 8/11/2012, this first chapter has an extended intro. This story has very rare scenes of mild violence, but does contain a fair amount of harsh language. However, it has no blatant sexual scenes and no excessive gore. The only thing that would make this story "m-rated" is language. It is about college students, and I feel it is appropriate for mature teenagers and up.
A/N: Saint Roku University is heavily inspired by my own alma mater, Houghton College, and I will be blatantly ripping ideas from the college here for the sake of homage and to contribute to genuineness - as will I be expressing personal experiences of mine through the narrative. Since a LOT of people seem to overreact to the initial 'shipping' (and in general freak out and care more about ships than the story) I am going to place a shipping spoiler in the A/N at the end of the chapter for those that obsess over that kind of thing.

Hannah le echó un último vistazo a su vieja habitación, ahora vacía. Había vivido durante dieciséis años en aquella casa y ahora se tenía que marchar de ella.
Iba a echar tanto de menos Nueva York. Toda su vida estaba allí, sus amigos, su instituto, la panadería donde iba todas las mañanas a buscar el pan, el parque donde su padre le enseñó a ir en bicicleta

Twilight sat up and stretched. She had just spent the best part of
three hours studying.
Around her were piles upon piles of dusty old tomes, ranging from local
history in the past one hundred years, to the origin of their species.
So far she had only managed to get through the one book, but she had a
free day, so she was certain she could blast through another seven or
so. She continued her stretching,listening to her joints crack into place.
Finally she stood up properly, giving her tail a playful flick as she

The next morning, Fluttershy and Trixie shared a breakfast of oatmeal again. Trixie found it easier to get around and ate almost an entire bowlful. She realized most of her original wounds were healing nicely, and while her side was tender it wasn't painful to move, usually.
"The others will want to know you're up." Fluttershy said. Trixie glanced down at the floor.
"Will they really care?"
"They're my friends too." Fluttershy responded. Trixie nodded, understanding what she meant.
"Shall we... go out?" Trixie asked. Fluttershy paused.
"Are you...are you sure? They could come..."
"Trixie has healed excellently under such adept care." she smiled at Fluttershy, who blushed slightly in response. "Besides," Trixie said softly, "she promises not to exert herself. She doesn't want to spend a single day more bedridden."
"Okay. A day out would be...nice." Fluttershy smiled. Trixie nodded and waited as Fluttershy cleaned up breakfast. They made their way to the door. That same rabbit

(Author's Notes: I don't know what I was thinking. Anyways, I'd like to say offhand that I don't want you all to get the wrong impression – I LOVE Soul Calibur's characters. (Except maybe Voldo.. but you couldn't have Soul Calibur without Voldo. ..And Necrid, but he's not really a Soul Calibur character so much as a 'hey, let's get Todd McFarlane's fans' attention' ..And Inferno, but I don't count him as a 'character' anyway.. (Ooo.. Slam…….)) Also, Kilik's haiku may not make sense to many of you. The double meaning of 'Bo' found in the third line refers to the 'Divers' in Parasite Eve II who say 'Bo.' I love those little things and like the idea of Kilik being completely lost in the modern Parasite Eve world so I decided to keep it ; Another note is that Necrid's quote in his haiku is from Richter Belmont in 'Castlevania: Symphony of the Night' - Oh yeah! And I (obviously) have the GameCube version so Haihachi and Spawn are not Haiku-

Trixie found the days passed by quickly and peacefully from there. She began to develop a routine. By the time she awoke Fluttershy was making breakfast, typically oatmeal, a warm and filing meal that started the day right. Trixie would take her mornings easy, still recuperating. She had gotten her books back from Twilight, and would review them, often in the garden if the weather held. She would then usually accompany Fluttershy into town in the afternoon, having lunch with her or just taking the chance to stretch her legs. She began to fill out little by little, her coat gleamed once more, and she regained her former energy. Only one thing stood between her and true health. That was why, nearly a week since her first visit, Trixie found herself in the Ponyville library again, Twilight Sparkle staring at her.
"Absolutely no magic?"
"None at all." Trixie shook her head. Twilight frowned.

Durante las cinco horas de viaje Hannah había tratado de poner sus ideas en orden, pero acabó mirando el paisaje sin poner mucha atención.
Ashley no había separado la vista de la carretera en todo ese rato y Judy se había quedado dormida a los diez minutos de viaje. Los únicos sonidos que se podían escuchar eran el ronco sonidos del motor y el aburrido maullido del viejo y gordo gato de la familia, Happy. Hannah estaba segura de que aquel amarillento gato le observaba allí a donde fuera.
Hannah ya no recordaba el verdadero nombre de Happy, simplemente cuando era pequeña lo empezó a llamar Happy y toda la familia le siguió.

The alley opened out into a tiny square with a number of little shops opening off of it. There was a tack-repair shop, with newly-worked bridles hanging near the door to dry; an apothecary, with its tell-tale sign of a winged-staff and the thick scent of medicines and ointments which Twilight could smell from where they were standing; and a charming little...

It was a glorious day in Ponyville, where all the ponies were at play and work. The work ponies were finishing lunch in a lovely afternoon, and the small school ponies were at recess, enjoying the sunny day. It was a daily routine in Ponyville, and nothing seemed out of place. The local Ponyville Library, however, looked like a darker place than before. The colors weren't as bright as they used to be, but instead with a darker hue. Ponies say it's because the library tree is growing old, but some school ponies started a rumor saying it got that way ever since a particular day.

"I promised I'd try my best, Luna. It simply isn't going to happen; it's out of my hooves."
"Bah, I should've known." The princess of the moon sulked, staring at her teacup. Across the table from her, her older sister sighed and sipped her tea before continuing. These mornings didn't give them a lot of time to bond, and she felt all the worse when they spent that time fighting. At least alone as they were in Celestia's study Luna could be convinced to speak candidly.
"It's not that I don't want to spend more time with you, you know that." Celestia said gently. Her little sister was having none of it, and she looked up from her tea with a glare.

Trixie made her way down the stairs unsteadily the next morning, feeling rested but hungry. She realized as she walked down that she was being watched. Looking around, she found a white rabbit standing on a small end table, glaring at her. It made her feel unwelcome, but Trixie just glared back at it.
"Do not mess with Trixie, rabbit, or she may make you part of her next routine."
The rabbit did not look amused. A noise distracted her, and Trixie looked up to realize the birdhouses hanging from the ceiling were occupied, small sparrows talking to one another from their houses.
"What kind of house is this?" Trixie just stared on. Another bird emerged from a larger house. It was a robin that began to whistle a tune. To Trixie's surprise, a silky voice sang back, wordlessly, in perfect key.
"Good morning- oh, Trixie!" Fluttershy entered the room from the kitchen. Trixie realized she had a light blush on her face and immediately scolded herself. Why was she blushing?

Trixie awoke slowly, feeling an odd peace about her that she hadn't felt in a long, long time. Her entire body tingled pleasantly, her muscles were entirely relaxed, and she found a smile on her face. She stretched a little and opened her eyes.
Almost immediately her mood fouled. There was less light than last time, but she could still make out the same yellow ceiling as before. She quickly remembered where she was and why. That pegasus, she had... tricked Trixie. Tricked her into accepting food and aid, Trixie realized. She wasn't sure what exactly the pegasus had done wrong. But the indignity of it infuriated her.
Trixie looked herself over and gasped slightly. Her body was more bandages than not, her legs entirely covered and several pads held to her sides with medical tape. She realized her muscles were relaxed thank to several damp clothes placed around her shoulders and hips. She shook them off and immediately regretted it, yelping as her bandages rubbed and made her aw

And what a beautiful sunrise it was. The luminescent rays of light and warmth beamed down upon Ponyville. The sky ablaze with a fiery morning aura that is near impossible to describe. Hues of red, orange, and a bit of violet smear across the sky, much to the enjoyment of Applejack, who was up before sunrise to start her work for the day at Sweet Apple Acres.
Applebloom attempted to sleep in this morning, having gotten permission from Applejack the previous night to do so, yet failed. She was a morning pony, just like her big sister. It WAS a Sunday, and since most of the apple deliveries for the week had gone out last night, there wasn't that much work to do around the farm today. Mainly cleaning up and making sure all of the trees were being properly taken care of; a task Big Mac and Applejack could handle easily on their own.
