The small town of Seacliff in the year 2400:
Day 9 after the catastrophe:
Rumor goes through the internet that aliens have arrived on earth. Supposedly it all started with a meteorite crashing into a beach on an island.
What's more, people whisper about a shadowy organization having taken camp on said island. An organization pretty similar to Area 51, conducting various top secret experiments, including human experiments.
Apparently, after securing the meteorite, they had locked the discoverer of it into a chamber, together with his discovery.
Bits of information had leaked out over the net: The stone in the chamber had been glowing in a warm green light, which seemed to welcome the man.
But tests had shown that it was far more dangerous than the naked eye could see: It was highly toxic and the green glow was actually a sign of extreme radioactive pollution.
About what exactly happened to the man, nothing is known. The information leaks contradict each other in this point:

Bret ran away from the party after the pool incident.
He ran and ran and ran, not looking back and not resting once, until he reached the city park.
It was only there that he allowed himself to rest on one of the benches.
God damn that cat kid my thumb still hurts he grumbled and sucked on his thumb to stop the blood from flowing out.
He slumped on the bench and sighed.
How did this happen Ive never been so humiliated in all my life
He sighed again and, caught up in his anger, he failed to notice that he was shrinking.
Slowly, but inevitably, he went from 57 to 51.
His hair began to grow and also became slightly red.
Ouch, my eyes! Stupid bugs
It was no bug that flew into his eye. Instead, it was a reflex that caused them to close, so they could change without the danger of blinding him.
When he opened them again, they were slightly bigger than before and their color had t

Fred Barton stood hesitantly before the conspicuously large and white, two-story building in front of him. He was a veteran in the sense that he had participated in many blood drives before, but this one was different in many respects. The organization in charge of this particular drive, the Peppermint Foundation, obviously liked to handle things very differently. Unlike most blood drives, this one was by invitation only. Fred ran his fingers through his short, brown hair as he looked again at the letter he had received.
Dear Fred Barton,
Due to the recommendation of one of our members, Brett Lacington, we are honored to extend our invitation for you to attend our blood drive and donate at our local establishment. It will be run by our most experienced staff and afterwards, you will be able to enjoy the top quality menu items served in our canteen. Our hours of operation will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Saturday. Please

“Hey Sarah, there you are.” Tina called out.
“Where have you been? We’ve searched everywhere for you!” Salina added.
“Sorry girls, mum just called. I had to pick up my cousin from the bus station two streets further.” Sarah said and smiled at her friends.
Nyan-Chan was hiding shyly behind her, one hand clutching her skirt.
Tina saw her and her face brightened.
“I guess she’s a little shy.” She smiled and crouched lower, bringing her face onto Nyan-Chan’s level. “What’s your name?”
“N-nya…” Nyan-Chan stuttered.
“Nya?” Ramona asked? “Sounds like a cat meowing.”
Nyan-Chan blushed and tried to dive deeper into cover behind Sarah.
“Not nya, although it’s pretty close.” Sarah giggled a little. “Her full name is Nyan-Chan. She’s a little tired and shy at the moment though. She just sat 20 hours on a pl

Nicko was walking around. Actually he had no idea what he was doing at the party at all.
‘Oh yeah. Just because mum thinks I need to have a social life, instead of reading books…’ he sighed.
Sarah had invited the entire grade to a pool party at her house. It was a warm Friday night and everybody was enjoying themselves.
Additionally to not really wanting to be here, Nicko was afraid of meeting Sarah. He had had a crush on her since first grade, but he’d never been able to tell her. She was the most popular girl in his grade. He was just the stupid nerd that got bullied all the time. There was no way he could ever tell her what he felt for her, without being the laughing stock of the whole school…
‘Still, I can’t forget her…’ he thought for himself.
When he spotted Sarah on the other side of the pool, talking with a group of people, he slowly retreated backwards, not wanting to meet he

A bright Monday morning greeted Nicko, when he awoke to his alarm. Yawning, he stretched himself, before getting out of bed. Slightly groggy, he turned on the shower, before relieving himself.
About twenty minutes later he walked down the stairs and into the kitchen. “Morning, mum.”
“Morning, sweetie.” She replied with a smile. “Breakfast is already on the table.”
Smiling as well, Nicko sat down and dug into his meal.
His mother put her plate on the table and sat down too. “Busy day ahead?” She asked.
“Not really. I have some tests coming up next week and luckily my teachers most of understand that we’d rather learn, so I don’t get too much to do. Except for Mr. Grumpers of course. That old idiot still insists on us doing shitloads of work every day.”
“Mind your language, Nicko.”

Justice sighed and poured the contents of the vial down the drain. “And yet another time I failed…” He muttered.
Footsteps approached from behind and even without turning, Justice knew that it would be Dan. “Again?” Dan asked.
“Sadly enough… I really thought I got it this time.” Justice grumbled.
With a sigh Dan stepped next to him. “It is as it is. More luck next time.”
“Next time? Dan, I’m starting to think this is all for naught. That it’s useless! I don’t think it’s even theoretically possible, so how is it supposed to work in practice?” He wanted to say more, but Dan cut him off.
“Don’t ever say that again! No, don’t even think that again.” He grabbed his younger colleague by the shoulders and shook him softly. “Justice, you have to believe me. I know this is possible! We can do this! It’s just a matter of time before we find a way! Ju

The Neko Pandemic
It all started on a quiet summer morning in a town in The Middle of Nowhere, Illinois. It was the worst possible place for the pandemic to start, if you could even call it a pandemic. It only affected a select few and only through contact with the pathogen. The government will deny it ever happened, and so will those who came into contact with the pathogen. In fact, few remember the day they were bitten and contracted the virus.
It all began in the house of twenty-two year old Jeff Burns. He'd dedicated the past four years of his life to the pursuit of genetic manipulation, specifically in modifying human beings to nekos, cat people. He intended the test subjects of his various experiments to be the homeless, but his previous test had gone horribly wrong. Instead of a homeless man, Jeff had taken a lawyer, and in the process of the test he had killed the man. It wasn't until afterwards, while watching the news, that he understood the deep shit he was in.

Wake up, Fin! It would be very bad, if you overslept on this important day!
That was my mother. With a yawn I pushed away the blankets and slowly got up from bed.
Hello, my name is Fin. I live in a small mountain village, together with my mother and my little sister, Lia. I have no real memories of my father. He died in an avalanche, when I was about three years old. At that time my mother was pregnant again.
Luckily the other people in the village were kind and helped my mother to take care of me and my Lia. She was a good healer and every so often a person would come to us for treatment, when they werent satisfied with the priests of the air lords or didnt trust them with the case.
Oh, I forgot. You probably have no idea what an air lord is. Altogether there are four air lords. One for each cardinal direction:

Even though she was a little sad. Yesterday her camera had fallen off from its usual place on the wardrobe.
The impact shattered the little camera beyond repair.
Now Jessica was on the way to her friend Manuel. They wanted to go shopping for some summer swimwear and maybe a new camera.
Dammit, it sucks having no camera anymore she thought for herself.
Normally she would talk Manuel into making photos of her, while she tried on new outfits. Sadly today this wouldnt work
As she walked through the park, Jessica suddenly saw a light reflex coming from a tree root.
Hmm? Whats that? She asked herself and walked closer to investigate.
On the ground next to the tree root, she found a tiny black camera.
YAY! Seems Im lucky today! she exclaimed happily.
Then a thought struck her: Could it be that someone lost it?

A 10 year old, homeless boy was playing with a ball on a grassfield. After a while he kicked the ball to hard and it flew into a small and fast moving stream. He cried out in alarm. The ball was his only possession and his most valuable treasure. Immediately he raced after it. When the ball, floating in the stream, reached the edge of a nearby forest and was carried inside of it, the boy stopped. He had heard rumors about this forest. The farmers said a ghost was haunting it. After a few seconds the boy shrugged and entered the forest. He had made the ball by himself, tying rugs together with a short rope and he certainly wouldn't lose it to some fairytale-forest.
He followed the stream through the undergrowth, occasionally catching a glimpse of his ball. Suddenly he stood on a small clearing. He looked around and his face lit up with a delighted smile, when he saw that his ball had reached a small pond and floated near the edge of it. He stooped over in order to retr

It was a bright Thursday afternoon and Alec was walking through the city center, searching for a costume for the upcoming convention. The next day he and his friend Victor had planned to drive to the manga-expo 200 miles away. They were both huge fans of anything that dealt with manga and anime in any way and three days of nothing but that was definitely worth the 200 miles drive.
Originally Alec had planned to make his own costume, but a few weeks before the expo, his boss had unexpectedly promoted him. Not only he earned more money, but he also had to do a lot more work. After four weeks, he still hadn’t found a way to organize things normally and so all his free time had been absorbed by work. Thus his only chance was to buy a costume. Something he normally despised, but sadly there was no other option.
He had been through nearly every shop that sold costumes of any kind and that had reminded him of why he preferred to make his own costumes.

George lived alone in a small cabin next to the graveyard. He lived alone, because the other townspeople thought him creepy or even scary. And only judging by his appearance they were right at least a little.
George was about 60 years old, had a hunchback and he squinted terribly. On top of that came, of course, his job. A gravedigger wasnt really the kind of person youd invite to a dinner party.
Not that George was bothered by this. He loved his job above everything else. He just felt a little lonely sometimes

Shino liked exploring. He loved it so much that he spent every holiday and free day out somewhere, wandering through a forest or a more or less hidden valley.
Today he had driven to a small village, called Riverwood, near a deep forest. He had rented a room in the village inn. Then he had packed a backpack and went out into the fields on his way to the forest.
As always he had taken no map or other orientating item with him. His friends called him mad and crazy, because he did that, but he thought it just made things more exiting.
Over the years he had gathered a lot of experience in the field and he was able to navigate almost any territory, without a map or other help. Because of that, he wasnt worried a bit about finding his way back home into the village. Until now he had always been lucky.
If only he had known that his luck would fail him today
