Dragonized, chapters 0,1, and 2.Chapter 0- through the fire and flames.
Fire and smoke... that's all that I could remember...
...Everything was hurting.... where was I? The smoke had started to clear some, but my eyes couldn't seem to focus on anything, it was all blurry... something green, I could see something green everywhere, and brown, below all the green was brown.
Red danced around me, coming from parts of gray stuck in the brown... why were my ears ringing so bad?
“Holy... are you seeing this Tanner?” Comes from off to my right, it was tinny, must have been the ringing, I try to look that way and everything flashes red, and I let out a roar of pain, but something was wrong, it was wispy, no strength to it, and my chest burned.
“It's alive too, damn!” Says another voice, something had started up out in the distance... what was it? Barking?
“Agh, we don't have time for this, they're still hunting for miracle man here. Getting close too.” says one I haven't heard before...
Dragonclaw: IntroIt was a bright sunny Saturday morning, the weather was ideal for the middle of august and there was a weak but pleasant wind.Dragonclaw: Intro3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
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.
"I'm glad you made it, considering how the others are searching for us at the moment" The oldest man started, who had his left arm missing. He pulled a few papers out of his suit and handed them to the others, who distributed them among themselves. They contained various information, including a sheet about a flight that left an hour ago and was listened as PDG-894.

I pull up aurora and set the next of Shane's journals going, I carefully adjust the screen so the others on this bird couldn't see what I was reading.EVOlution chapter 132 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
[So... next journal, what to put down? Well first off, the war is still the same, Attack, fall back, attack, and so on. These three sides show no sign of slowing down either. By now all three sides have their weaknesses out in the open. And they are being exploited viciously by the other sides, and the effects are devistating. But there's no short supply of people willing to fight now.
And yet this is a war of attrition now, not one of straight conquest, whoever wins, we all suffer.
As for my soldierly deeds, I recently got in on a lab raid in a remote Adventist base, and found myself a little bonus. After the usual brutal gunfight and prisoner execution, I took my rights and plundered the R&D dept. and found myself a

“What?” I was caught suddenly off guard, what plan? Me and pretty much everyone else gave him a blank stare.
He notes this and says with a slight frown “What? Isn't it obvious?”
I shake my head at him “Not everyone of us is thinking on your terms of tech Blake.”
He returns with "I know that, but think about it. The nanny bots, the infected. It all makes sense." I just give him another blank look.
He mutters "Depths of the void." And points to Alex. "Now I'm not impressed. The point is, the nanny bots said were disinfected." Wait
And then it clicks for me "Disinfected? But how did that even get accomplished?"
Blake goes on to explain "The light. From what Roxanne sent me, the virus can be removed from the host cell, but you need to be very precise. One advantage of a quantum wave teleport is it's precision."

I could hear the helicopter-like sound long before it came into view, going maybe three hundred feet in the air I stop from my position on the side of the road and keep looking, it followed the highway, once it got close enough I could make out the four rotors on the trapezoid shape. two in the back and one on each side. 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. I shift the duffel bag to a more comfortable position and keep walking. I had seen nothing but grass, and some small hills along with cars going by at about 80 MPH, soon enough the transport zooms overhead again, it was going slower and the rear rotors had spaced themselves out to make a more stable flight, as quick as it came, it was gone.
I keep walking along the road, an occasional car passing by and breaking the sound of crickets. I keep getting flashbacks over what happened in the last few hou
The DarkI idly strolled down the well-worn pathways through the trees yellowstone national park, basking in the tranquility of a pleasant saturday morning out in the wild. Despite how thick this forest was, gently blew past me a cool breeze as I walked, earning me a sigh of relief as I felt the sweat trickle down the sides of my face and down past my neck. I heard the cacophony of the birds up in the trees making their cries and calls. Every now and then I heard a flutter of wings as one took flight. A warm, summer day. Perfect for hiking.The Dark3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
This was relaxing, after so much stress in school, I was finally at peace. Such was the beauty of Yellowstone Park, where no matter what happens, it never seems to fail in creating such a strong sense of tranquility. It was comparable to being on another world. With the hustle and bustle of daily life in the city, as well as the demanding schedule of a full time job, it was hard to imagine that this place was actually on Earth, let alone so close to my home.
The Dragon Crew: Part 1Ever wondered if dragons existed or still exist in the world. If the stories youheard while growing up were real instead of fantasy, myth, and legend, wouldn't you want to meet and befriend a dragon or even become one. Well here's what happened when three kids found a wounded dragon while on vacation and befriended it. As soon as they did this, their lives changed forever along with their seven friends when they were given eight different colored sones with the souls of dragons in them. The eight stones even carried some of the most powerful dragons that ever lived. The name of the three kids that found the dragon is Rachael, Jeff, and Tommy. Jeff and Tommy are cousins and Rachael is one of their closest friends. Jeff and Rachael practically did everything together, whether it was with their other friends or by themselves. The reason they did so much together was because they were neighbors. Tommy lived a few blocks away from them and tried to get together with them whenever he could.The Dragon Crew: Part 16 years ago in Fantasy More Like This

I hate that sixth sense, the one that warns of danger or somebody watching you. I don't usually hate it but because of my sixth sense, I was walking towards the back door of my house, holding my gun, at 5:00 in the morning. I had a general idea of what to expect. It probably wasn't a human, there were hardly any burglars around these days, which left only one other option. A dragon.
It was a year and a half ago when dragons started popping up in society. It turned out that most of them where once humans that became transformed into dragons and they just wanted to return home. Almost a full month after the first dragons started appearing a war broke out. They called themselves "The Clan", and launched a full scale war across the globe. The military

This resulted in me having to rush to school. However, I was lucky, and managed to stumble into the assembly plaza just as the first bell rang.here be dragons: TF --REDONE--4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Sadly, I was not as lucky with regard to my wallet, as I discovered that it contained a grand total of two dollars. Still, I had to eat, as my stomach had grumbled during the first lecture of the day. Thankfully, I was able to afford a cup of fruit punch and a plate of chicken rice.
Having not much time left before the next lesson, I wolfed down the food, together with the punch, which tasted strange. Something told me that my stomach would give me trouble over it later.
I was right, and throughout the entire day, my stomach was churning, and my organs felt as it they were going on a tour of my entire body. This led to my loss of concentration during the subsequent lessons, and I w

“Yeah. We may have to.” I said noticing a large door open by Ryan’s perch, big enough for him to fit though but it was still a tight squeeze. The corridor it lead down was slightly bigger, and two humanoid robots, easily ten foot each came towards us. They weren’t the same model as the nannybots, but they were a more resent model, despite the fact they had accumulated a bit of rust. I’d say it was about twenty years since they saw the factory line. That’s old for a robot.
I ran under Ryan for a better look. They’re chassis where orignalinly a bright green colour, but that gave way to a mismatched orange before someone tried it with blue. They had led lights for eyes and their hands consisted of two fingers and a thumb. They didn’t look happy.

"It was OK," she replied, "How was uni?"

"Yeah, OK then."
I left her room and walked to mine, unzipping my laptop bag and pulling out my Acer as I did. I went to my desk plugged in the AC and connected the laptop to the 22 inch LCD monitor and the 5.1 speaker system. My setup complete, I started up the laptop and went to the internet. Visited facebook to see if any of my mates had done anything lately, and went to 4chan to look for some funny pics, but there was nothing happening there. I was just going to go to a different site, when there was a loud knock on the door.
"What the hell?" I wondered as I got up,
I approached the front door and opened it, and there were two men in black suits and sunglasses standing rigidly

I jerk awake at the sound, which was bad because my hind-spikes ended up tearing into the armrest. I pull them out, noting someone had put a blanket over me. I make a mental note to thank who did it later... as for now I tried to figure out what caused that sound.
There it is again! I pinpoint it as the back door. My parent's always lock both front and back doors before going to bed... so it had to be someone breaking in! Well, they had a nasty suprise coming, I slip carefully out from under the blanket and off the couch, barely making a sound. It was dark... I figure my vision had improved otherwise It would have been pitch black to me, (That's why I have a mental map of the house) right now i could just make out the outlines of everything which left me to use my mental map to guide me over to the front door and the light switch.

A Connection - Dragon TFI saw a silver blur, weaving through a forest, its metallic hue only magnified by the weak light that filtered through the thick treecover. He - it's only apparent that he was a living thing when he'd started to tire - slowed. Deep blue, previously masked by the trees and sky, adorned the top of his body. Even in his tired state, he was still capable of movement at an astonishing pace, dodging trees at a seemingly impossible pace. I still couldn't tell what he was, but I had vague suspicions. It soon became obvious that he didn't slow from fatigue. He was looking for something. I watched him, trying to make out his form between the numerous trees. He began to approach a clearing, and I would finally see what he really was. His form began to emerge out into the clearing.

Huh, well that was kinda weird... I thought.
"Aww!" I suddenly heard behind me, making me roar with surprise and fall out of the bed altogether, to land with a crash on the carpet. I looked up through the tangle of my quilt, to see Zilla hefting a salmon the size of my head off the bed. "You weren't supposed to move."
I got up, pulling the covers off and un-skewering the pillow from my left horn "Zilla! I got an alarm clock you know!"
"But I was boooored" he moaned, the fish wriggling from side to side like.. well like a floppy fish. "Can we go to the airport now?"

Vashriel is carrying an enormous leather saddle over his shoulder that looks like it weight a hundred pounds, and outside I see his dragon Chaff already harnessed up. He throws the bulky thing onto the ground in front of me.
I ask, in a good mood from a good night's rest.
"Nope," says Vash with a smile. "Can't afford to feed ya, you're gonna have to catch your own breakfast later. Twilight can grab something quick from the kitchen after she saddles you."
"What's going on?" asks Twilight, standing up and rubbing the sleep from her eyes.
"Flying lessons," answers Vash with a wild look in his eye.
Vash refuses to actually help us put the saddle on, but he offers all kinds of advice and instruction, most of which I think was purposefull

“Oof” I push myself back, that's what I get for not wearing a seatbelt. I look around, we were in the middle of a parking lot near a mall. 101 and Torrent had switched places at one point and 101 was back in his human form, cursing some guy who had pulled suddenly in front of him which had quickly backed out and sped away. 101 pulls into the now empty space and shuts off the SUV.
“Where are we?”I ask to Torrent, who looks up and over to me“Not where we need to be. We need to get another vehicle, one less noticeable. I shake off some sleep and think for a second “We're gong to steal one aren't we?”

“I’ve gotten his name so far, but not much else. He seems to have some trouble understanding and speaking – frankly, I think just remembering his name was an effort.” I said, looking at Benjamin in the sofa. He was scanning the room with a haggard look on his face, as if he couldn’t really make heads or tails of what was happening. I can’t blame him, I suppose. Judging by his difficulty with speech, he had had either little to none contact with people, or been out of touch for a very long time. Most of the time I had spoken to him, all I’d gotten as a reply was a confused look and a faint hum every now and then.
“He seems wary and afraid – I’m a bit afraid myself to be honest.” Dad said and shook his head. He nodded slightly in the gen

These questions ran through 16 year old Josh's mind. His friends had always said he was like a dragon, even earning him the nickname "Dragon Boy" among his group of friends. Regardless of his nickname, Josh himself loved dragons. Even at 16, he had always wished he could meet one. Oddly enough, Josh could actually sympathsize more with dragons than with most humans.
Some of Josh's "dragon-like" traits were the fact that he was a loner. He didn't have many friends. The reason for his having so little friends was because he was very skeptical about new people, even more so than most others. He also hated being around a lot of people. Whenever he was in a large group, even if it wasn't that many people, he always felt too cramped. His parents and teachers thought he may possibly have had some form of autism.

The lights glare blinds me for a full minute, maybe I should have just kept it a minimum. I watch the room come into focus, nothing new... until I turn and look at the bed.
There were massive gouge marks in the steel wall, the bed was spared most of it, but one of the pillows was completely shredded... if I turned... I check and yep, tail hole ripped through the pants... great. Standing up the damage looked a little less bad, considering the gouges were angled, could just pass it off as a decoration... at least there wasn't any wires or anything that I could see through the steel. I look around and see the disposal chute holding right by the counter, it would probably fall to the bottom, be compressed and shoved up on a
AerieYet again it was time for plowing. I dreaded this time of year since it meant that I would have to work next to the horses for long periods. Once, I had asked my father why he did not plow while I cleared away the rocks. He had replied that I was too young to be doing such heavy work. I wasn’t sure about that, but I was not one to argue with him.Aerie3 years ago in Settings More Like This
So this year, like every one previously, he hitched up the horses, lined the plow up for the first furrow, turned to me as I stood off to the side and said, "Alright, all yours."
I stepped forward, took the reigns, and like every year that I could remember, the horses instantly began blowing and stomping nervously. "Go ahead,” my father encouraged. So I started. Reins hooked around my neck so that my hands were free to guide the plough, grip on the handles just tight enough to keep it under control. With a click of my tongue, I ordered the horses forward. Except the horses didn’t wait for any kind of order.

As usual, I made my way to the library, toting a large bag full of work to boot. I was counting down to the big national examinations, which were but a week away. Left before my first paper, and I was nowhere as prepared as I would have liked to be…
I strolled into the library, the blast of cool air from the escaping air conditioning providing a refreshing respite from the hot muggy air of the outside. I made my way to the second floor where the study tables were. However, I was somewhat disappointed to find most of the tables already taken. I spent some time walking around, looking for a seat.
Eventually, I settled for a seat in a reasonably lit corner, and took out my materials and began to study. I was presently focusing on math, because mildly put, I had done horrendously in that subject in the preliminary examinations and was hoping to salvage the situation. But then again, that was more or less the case for all my subjects… I was t

I liked how they wrote, but I decided I would write a new original TF story that happened to me while my friend was away. I was depressed on how other artists on dA that wrote TF’s got so many more views on their work than mine. Of cour
