Justin smiled as he looked over his masterpiece. The concentrically patterned and connected circles of magic he had been carefully scrawling out overnight had come out perfectly. Each "point" connected to where it needed to, making a circle that even an alchemist would praise.
Taking a step back, Justin quickly collected the final pieces he needed for his spell. He began to place and light incense candles at equidistant points on the outer circle. He laid the proper tributes of food and sand around the edges. When he was finished, Justin opened his book of summoning and began to chant.
As he chanted the lines from the book for the spell, he absent-mindedly thought about what got him to here. Ever since he was a kid, he wanted to learn magic. Not just any magic; but real magic, like the things of fairy tales. Of course, such magic, he was told, was make believe. But that didn't stop him from trying to learn that ways of

I'm running on a street light.
Tuned to a calm night.
Calm waters in front of me.
In the eyes of good company.
This is home, home away from home.
I left the bustle back at base.
Retired from the race.
Got to have my dose of thrills
but I like the waters still.
This is home, home away from home.
I bet it's relaxing
to canoe by torchlight.
One day I might, one day I might.
Will I ever get
to replay this sight?
One day I might, one day I might.
This is home, home away from home.

with a minuscule height
amount of mettle
just to emerge
from the fragile earth
so I can
burst to new heights
and become something
Or am I
that has risen from
with a slow
and decaying pace
the inevitable day
when the flames
of my underworld
will come roaring
so as to drag me
my earthen form
so I can fade
With each passing year
I ask these futile questions.
With each passing year
I get closer
to the answer.

the human body
is such a strange thing
a bundle of fragile
threads of vitality
wrapped in a coating
that was made for corpses.
Often my scythe has explored
many a living body
that I can't help but notice
so many joys I can have
while reaping the souls
from these mounds of flesh.
just look at the outermost layer
the covering of hide
and miniscule hairs
that humans call skin.
Oh, how delightful it is!
Its delicate softness
is such an amusement
when I cleave it from its bones
the way one would take
a knife to the peels of oranges.
Why, the only difference
is that oranges have not
lungs to scream with.
And bones! oh, bones!
Pale branches and marrow twigs
placed within human beings
so they may stand erect.
How utterly useless, bones.
They always snap
no matter what degree of force
I put on them!
fragments of skeletal structures
is a pleasure to see and feel
and make fancier knives
than my scraps of metal
and shards of broken glass.
Pieces of bone

A little Faerie Dust...Goes a long wayA little Faerie Dust2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
It was a beautiful day at "William's Wonder Drinks", and Kenku the shopkeeper hummed a happy tune as he wiped his desk. Business had been good, as both old customers and new customers journeyed in and out of the store, some looking the same as they did, others looking "different".
All in all, a good day, although a busy one, leaving the grey fox no time to take care of smaller tasks, as one look at his cluttered shop floor showed. A shipment of imported goods had just come in, and while he had been able to get them most of the goods on the shelves, much of the shipping materials still sat on the floor.
Looking at the stuff with a sigh, Kenku got up and started to pick up some of the materials off the floor. As he did, the swinging of the door and the ringing of the bell signaled a new customer. Looking up he saw a small Island Fox looking back at him, with a smile on his face.
"Hey Draykin" Kenku said as he looked back at him. "What brings you to my place?"
Loose Ferrets: Seeking the GleThe untapped territories of an artist's imagination are vast and empty. White space goes for miles in all directions, nothing changing, nothing stirring. In many ways it is a blank canvas waiting for someone to apply the brush, and send the critters scurrying away to create new ideas.Loose Ferrets: Seeking the Gle3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
It is among this sea of white that Geo, the Artist's Muse, thought to himself about what to do. A big project had come up for the Artist, and of course, a big project needs a lot of ideas. Unfortunately, the idea rodents had been few and far between, and while the wacky inspiration ferrets had been running around in their usual crazy fair, they had not popped up more than a few small fragmented mice. Thus, Geo sat there, wondering what he could do to spur the creation of the creatures.
As the Raccoon sat there pondering, a familiar grey and white bear-dog like creature came up over the horizon. Seeing Geo he greeted him "Hey Geo, How's your day been going?"
"Oh hey Ronts," Geo said as he sat on his thinki

He groaned as he blinked and half regretted it. Most days being tired wouldn't be a problem, but today was different. Today was one of the most important days in the local D&D campaigns, and he knew he couldn't be half-awake as cast the wrong spell as his Vale Wizard was facing the great evil.

The sound of ray guns powering down filled the air, as Virmir smiled. Around him, several people groaned and looked displeased as the words "Invalid Change" hung above the grey fox's head.
"Come on people, haven't you learned?" He asked with a laugh. "Trying to transform me into another species never works. Surely you can be more imaginative than that?" He said, laughing a little more.
"Imaginative you say? How's this for Imaginative!" A voice suddenly said out of the blue. With a swift leap, and a sudden THUD, Virmir found himself on the ground, with a tall grey wolf on his back. Holding a staff of sandwich in his paw, the Wolf smiled and with a quick motion flipped up Virmir's cape. Before the fox could even react, Fen grabbed two wing like limbs from a pack on his back, and stuck them tightly onto Virmir's shoulder blades, before leaping off of him.
"Very funny Fen" Virmir grumbled as he got up, placing a hand on one of the wing roots. "But that's not going to work ei---Huh?" The fo

He could have had the food, when in his stomach, he did ache.
Wandering through the wild and Gods word he did take.
Turning the stone into bread, the devil did eagerly tempt.
Wanting to get the victory and anything he would attempt.
The earthly desires didn't at all bother him, not at all.
He knew what was right and heeded his Father's call.
He didn’t need the food, this did not at all satisfy.
He pushed Satan away and didn't ever cry.
He could have had the kingdom’s, all of tall and great.
That offer so much ruling, ones that he could take.
That voice in his ear, “bow down and it is yours.”
Jesus knew better than to turn to earthly flaws.
The power that was promised, he could have had this too.
But he knew from the start, this would never get him through.
His Father he wanted to please, nothing of the earth.
He had the spirit of a child, one of the new birth.
He could have had the world, all pleasures it gave.
Worldly things that crumple and cannot at all save.
Jason and the growlithe It was quite the rumor this time as news was buzzing about someone being found in the forest in need of rescuing.

When he heard that he was free to search, he didn't hesitate.Jason and the growlithe8 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
Jason ran through the forest searching high and low for anyone who needed help when suddenly, he heard something on the other side of some bushes. He quietly snuck his way up to the foliage and hid inside to see what he was hearing. He peered through the leaves and he didn't lift a finger as he froze where he was. What he saw was no refugee or damsel in distress for that matter. What he saw was a large pokemon (to him) that looked like a tiger. It was a growlithe!
It passed by Jason and suddenly stopped. It sniffed in the air and Jason knew his scent was being picked up by the beast. It looked in his direction and Jason wasn't sure if it saw him or not thr
Training Session (Jason) Jason was a member of the fighter class and he hadn't even met his leader yet! That is, until the first mission came. Buck was twice Jason's size, but he didn't feel intimidated. In fact, it drove him to become stronger. "All right, you want to prove yourself? Run these five courses and bring me back the practice refugees at the end of each. We'll see how you do peewee." Now, Jason was not easily angered, but being called anything along the lines of 'short' really agitated him. Enough, in fact, that Jason was determined to finish the excercise.Training Session (Jason)1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This

It was on a particularily cold Tuesday morning that an idea had struck the Eevee. It was a lovely idea, or so the boy though as he mapped out the plan in his head. Oki started the day writing down supplies on a scrap piece of paper: a tag, food, and a home. So far he had gotten the food and the tag, but he waited before crossing off the last item. The only thing left now was to get the actual present itself! He hastily made his way down the stairs from the Selva dorms and bolted down the corridors, being wary not to be caught by any professors roaming about. With two right turns and a click, the boy opened the door to an expansive room of pets!
The store was fairly new yet the stock was enough to have anyone thinking it had been in business for years. Oki stepped in, greeted the attendant and browsed though the rows of small Pokemon. One cage held a Wingull, a sea bird. With a hopeful smile he asked the clerk how much was the cost o
