Chapter 3: Unable to Live, Unable to die
IY14 opened his eyes as his brain made its way back to consciousness, and immediately he wanted to fall back asleep again. He felt nauseated and weak, which was the norm now as the sedative drugs made their run through his system. The drugs themselves had become the norms in his daily routine…
They had not been the norm originally. After he had attacked the homoyoukai Naraku, they had punched a needle into his shoulder releasing its contents into his blood, which and robbing him of all energy and stamina. However, they allowed the drugs to wear off and his energy to return before coming to collect him again for more tests.
He had separated the homoyoukai into two groups the guards and the experimenters. The guards came for him, and escorted him to the lab where the experimenters would take over, but always there would be a guard nearby.
The food one had not been so bad. For some reason that was beyond his understanding they

Inuyasha was surprised his ribs were not breaking under the impact of his heart pounding inside his chest. A million questions raced through Inuyasha's head as he stood there frozen in shock. The most prominent questions being "What", "How," And "Why?" then his mind seemed to lock on to one important fact.
There it was. A full blood youkai. A creature of the legends and fairy tales his mother had told him, the person who's broken image he had seen only hours ago on the computer screen.
"Hey," Inuyasha said while he took a step toward the youkai.
The youkai's eyes snapped open, and upon seeing Inuyasha he automatically jumped to his feet. Unfortunately, in his moment of alarm he forgot about the rack of boxes just above him. Inuyasha winced as the youkai's head smacked against the boxes, sending him to the floor again.
The youkai shook his head trying frantically to clear his vision, most likely suffering a headache the size of the Vega star system. Since Inuyasha was blocking the only
UNWANTED :: Excerpt from NaNo13[Note: It was hard to pick an excerpt that both A) can be comprehended without TOO much explanation, and B) I like well enough to share. I didn't really want to post the first chapter without first editing it (this being from NaNoWriMo, a lot of the writing is fairly sloppy). However, I do think the scene(s) I chose turned out all right, and it happens fairly early in the story (plus, it introduces one of my favorite recurring characters ). At this point in Ray’s journey to the Southwest (seeking an explanation for his peculiar inability to die), he has just met Ma’ii, the son of Coyote, and promptly managed to get him shot in the leg.

Once again, Loki was in the floating fortress so the Avengers could go off to fight Doctor Doom’s inventions. He was considering if he should change Director Fury’s eye patch with a pink one in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month (as Darcy Lewis had informed him at the beginning of October). Then again, he had changed it to a Jolly Rodgers eye patch in honor of Talk Like A Pirate Day, so it might have been repetitive. Maybe if I change the soldier’s uniform to pink and purple…

1. One does not simply toss a dwarf. It has to be done majestically!
2. And if you have been tossed or tossed one, never tell anyone about it. It´s a majestic secret.
3. If you kill an Orc or Ouarg make sure to take care of it quickly. These things tend to pile up.
4. Never let more than four dwarves climb on a pine tree. It´ll break.
5. Forget Red Bull. Dwarf Ale gives you wings!
6. If your host passes out just party on. He won´t mind.
7. If your host doesn´t want you to use a piece of his furniture be so kind to humour him. You can always sit on it later.
8. Or sit on your host, if he refuses to lend you a chair.
9. Don´t steal your host´s table silver.
10. Some life lessons for you to remember: A doily is not a towel, and crochet is not a game, even if you have the balls for it.
11. If you don´t find your way and are searching a specific house, consider looking at the door. There may be a sign

1. Be gruff.
2. Be proud of your size. Never wear high heels unless you need to peak over a wall out of strategic (or voyeuristic) reasons.
3. Eat. A lot. Never refuse an invitation to dinner.
4. Spill as much of your ale as possible while drinking.
5. Avoid silly songs.
6. Look into the distance, if convenient. If inconvenient look anyways.
7. Unless it would kill you. Obviously.
8. Wear dead animals´ skins and furs. Eat the rest. A dwarf does not join PETA. Nor does he become vegetarian. Or even vegan (for he´s not an elf).
9. Avoid elves. They´re sparkly and hug trees. And ride moose.
10. Imitate your pony´s latest hairstyle.
11. If you have the chance to let your hair flow in the wind, do so.
12. Never cut your beard unless you´re in mourning.
13. When you´re in battle, keep your weapons in the best possible shape.
14. Beards extensions are a big no-go. A proudly worn growing beard is more honourable than a cowardly di

Red eyes gazed down at him, angry, sad and lustful…
"You…are…mine…" a silken voice whispered softly, filling IY14 with terror…
IY14's eyes snapped open, his heart racing at a million miles per hour. He lay there, shaking and sweating, until his eyes fell on something small and furry sitting on his chest. He yelped and sat up, causing the furry thing to fall into his lap. The furry thing uncurled itself, revealing that it was a living thing. IY14 further backed away, until his back hit a wall. The furry creature stood up on its feet, shook its two fluffy tails and looked up at him, with big curious eyes and. Then after making a high pitched meow, it hopped off the bed and slipped out a parting in the door.

Amanda woke up as the bus plunged down the steep cliff.
Around her small things flew, floating in the falling vehicle.
Time began to slow down. With it, everything around her blurred; all
ambient sounds became a slow stream of incoherent waves.
Today, of all days? Why did it have to be today? she thought.
Some moments later, time came to a full stop. Silence and blurriness reigned.
The bus driver was nowhere to be seen, and so were the other passengers.
Except one: a teenager seated in the very back row. He wore a hood so
she couldn't see his face. In his hand he held a small metallic thing
that shone like a small sun.
"It works!" she heard him say. His voice sounded very familiar.

Galkgrokst FirearmsGalkgrokst FirearmsGalkgrokst Firearms1 year ago in Settings More Like This
The first galkgrokst firearms were developed a little over 900 years ago by the engineer-philosopher Krashee Palkst Dzal. His patron, the Empress of the Unalloyed Will, commissioned him to create a more powerful version of the hurled bombs in use at the time. In his typical fashion, Krashee Palkst Dzal instead delivered an entirely new weapon system. He adapted existing grenades into conical projectiles filled with explosives. The projectiles were fired from rifled tubes, propelled by pre-measured explosive charges. These early weapons, though large and primitive by today's standards, led to tremendous changes in the nature of warfare.
At their core, the basic design of firearms has changed little since Krashee Palkst Dzal's day. Most galkgrokst weapons consist of a long, rifled barrel, with a magazine and firing mechanism located at the rear and a trigger mechanism located near the front. This forward placement allows the narrower end of a user's tentacle to depres

"I need everyone to do their job, Thran," he said, a bit calmer. "Including you, my son."

He didn’t speak of this often. He still felt responsible that Thranduil got hit by dragon fire and became blind. The sad thing was that Thranduil was still one of the lucky ones of that great war.

"Hey, Miyako! Take a look at this!" Daisuke called from the recently unearthed temple in the side of Mt. Fuji.
"What is it?" Miyako quickly jogged over to where Daisuke was carefully lifting out a sheathed sword. The rest of the excavators on the project all gathered around to look.
"I found it in the flooring under the statue. It's in marvelous condition." Daisuke delicately looked over the sheath. "If this site hadn't been buried under fifty feet of tephra and hadn't been carbon dated to more than a thousand years ago, I would have wagered this sword was only fifty at the most."
"It could have been put there long after the temple was built," Misaki, one of the other excavators, pointed out.
"Grow a brain, Misaki, the eruption that buried this temple was in 1701, so at the absolute minimum the sword is 743 years old," Miyako snapped her ears flattening against the sides of her head.
