Her fellow kind were doing their normal routines, it being either fighting one another or pacing about in a haze. The only ones she had come to trust were different from the rest, just like she was.

Smoker limped over towards her, coughing and hacking into his fist. He helped her to her feet and escorted her over to the others. Hunter looked over at her from his dark corner while Boomer waddled over. Tank sat in the middle of the room, breathing heavily and fingers twitching with semi-contained rage. These three were the only ones she could have any kind of contact with.
Hunter stood and growled out "Witch, the survivors have come back with more weapons. We need you to do what you do best. If one of those bastards shoot you, attack them with all your might." She lowered her gaze to th

Adrenaline Rushes, weight that crushes,

Dodge to the right, never lose sight,

Thunder crashes, raining ashes,

Crush their ranks, guard your flanks,

Heave an exhausted sigh,
take a last look at the sky,
and pray to god,
that you don't die.

It was dark, so dark that the Hunter's hoodie could barely be seen. Only movement would show he was present, if not the loud screech he sounded as he pounced on his victim. Or even the eerie orange glow of his eyes. But he wasn't out tonight to feed on a Survivor's flesh. No, he was out to see her. All he had to do was listen to the sound of crying, only then would her presence be confirmed. He leapt rooftops, pausing every now and then to see if maybe he had missed something.

Ever since the visit at that gallery there seemed to be something different in her. For one, there had been a lemon candy in her pocket. Considering she hated those, it was very unlikely that she should find one in her pocket. She didn't always hate them; but they now appeared to install a sense of despair in her. Then came the fact that she couldn't look at a rose without watering it and cried if she saw a wilted one; red roses too but especially blue ones. And when she had suddenly had a craving for macaroons, to say that her parents looked at her strangely was the understatement of the year. Among these, were other bizarre happenings: she rapidly grew a fond passion for the outdoors and the sun, which she seemed to think, may disappear; she absolutely hated all crayons and she had a particular disliking for palette knifes. Not that there was much occasion to use one. The Guertena gallery had certainly established a mountain of questions in her mind that

"Caaareful," the eccentric man protested as his prized possession trembled for the umpteenth time. He held out his hands as if hoping to catch it, but in reality it could probably crush him. The skinny stranger moved as if he hadn't quite grown into his limbs, waltzing about in a tweed jacket, navy trousers and a bright bow-tie. And to hinder his physical talents even further, his unruly brown hair dangled completely in front of his eyes in one fell swoop.
"No need to beat yourself up over a couple scratches, stranger," Mal called to him while he and Jayne worked. He particularly eyed the nicks and scuffs in the bright cobalt paint. "This thing looks like it'

A horrible question, I know, but isn't that what aging is?
Rising more paper thin after every scraped knee and memory scabbed over,
Yet taller and taller after each step?
We measure our lives in units of misery nowadays.
Showering ourselves with sparkling pieces of armor, calling them crystallized teardrops
When we all know that they're just rhinestones glued to the body like a mask.
Shouting through a bullhorn how quiet and meek we are--
It's one thing to wear the paint on our face, but to swallow it and swish it over your throat so it colors your words is a whole other.
We wear our remorse and regret on our sleeves, bracelets of slits and pocketknives,
Flashing every drop of sweat like a tiara for our adoring crowds, varying in numbers, to swoon over us in a massive wave of pity.
We stretch ourselves to the point that pity feels good and safe, until we are a flat line, buried in a flurry of mistakes like ill-advised tattoos.

Being so, the man trudging through the wood wasn’t at all wet. He heard the storm rage all around him, but the rain didn’t hit him through the treetops.
When he’d seen the storm approach earlier, he’d thought he’d have to use his magic to stay dry, but as it turned out, the trees in the forest provided more than enough coverage. He walked through the wood with his head, his steps, and his heart heavy.

Garry hastily read the paint scribble on the door—the locked door—and quickly whirled around seeing the many doll faces staring back at him. He didn't like dolls. Garry wasn't sure where this fear had emerged, but something about the blue-faced messy-haired rag dolls made him uneasy.
The fact that a very violent, unpleasant looking one was crawling through the painting didn't help, either.
Franticly, he dashed forward, noticing some of the dolls looked a little overstuffed.
'Something special,' he thought to himself. 'Maybe its inside the belly of this doll!'
Garry tossed his fear away, and grabbed the doll with both hands, tugging at its stomach with his slender fingers. When he couldn't get the fabric to budge, he tore at it with his teeth. With a rip, the seam became undone, and the contents inside...
Some paper crumbled up.

black-haired, she wore it long, tied back.
She looked foreign, she should have been a gypsy--
silver and red, smoky and asleep;
should have smelled like cardamom or cloves
but she smelled like onions and carrots, potatoes and oregano.
She leaned at the sink in the tiny kitchen
peeling potatoes, head bent, sallow-skinned, heavy-hipped
her dark hair traced with the first lazy spider webs of gray.
We slunk past the gray-mouthed man on the sofa

men weren't soft then, but the new kind was coming along.
The suburbs were a garden

and it wasn't the dads who had the dirty fingernails.
But he worked every day, by god he did,

I already knew I wasn't going to make it like every time we do these Games.
I ran toward the chests along with everybody else. Xephos was barely in front of me if I could get in front of him I might actually get something good. As I came up from behind him his elbow connected with my nose, causing my vision to cloud with white spots. I kept running even though I couldn't see where I was going. I only saw stone brick before I blacked out.
I opened my eyes to find Rythian’s cold ender eyes staring me in the face. I sat up and backed up, hitting my head on a tree. I looked around and realized it was a hologram in the sky. I stood up and walked over towards the chests to see if there was anything I could salvage.

The Battle for Blackwater II(Part 31)The Battle for Blackwater II4 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Far above the city streets of Blackwater a great shadow moved to block out the sun. Dark clouds, the mountains of the sky, raced across the clear blue sky as the wind picked up far below, tossing the trees like rag dolls in the hands of a child. From within the approaching storm the clouds began to condense, causing small white flakes to steadily begin to make their way to the earth far below.
The first of the falling snowflakes came to rest but a brief moment on one of hundreds of black scales that adorned the body of Embyr, the Black Terror, before melting into an unidentifiable puddle. The water dripped to the ground under the feet of the black dragon as she battled against an ancient foe, the incarnation of the Sorceress Queen of Blackwater, Eclipse.
The fight had only lasted a few minutes, but already Embyr and her companion, Crystal, were growing tired. The ancient dragon had become a draco lich, a powerful undead foe whose body was imbued with unholy strength and immun
