How could he forget about the time elevator? “You’re a massive idiot,” Cocky’s voice said in his mind. Admittedly, not a lot of people had called him an idiot and lived to tell the tale, but why was his voice the one Max heard now? It took him back to that night, where all he could ever pray for was time. Just a few more days. Just a few more hours. Just a couple of seconds. And bam, Sam was gone.Sam Dies at the End - 65.

Seam StressThe heaviness settled in like an anvil being dropped on me. I couldn't take the fog inside my head and the lead inside my heart anymore, so I sat in the sun to melt it away. I wanted to sear every surface until I couldn't feel anymore. What kind of life is that, though, to never feel anything? To never feel the joy of love; the way it wraps its arms around your heart and traces its fingertips along your veins? Even the pain of looking back at love's scattered memories is necessary to understand how beautiful the feeling once was; how lucky you were to have ever felt its lips press to your cheek, its breath collect in the hollow of your neck. Love does these things, sews itself right up inside you to close the holes within.Seam Stress2 years ago in Emotional More Like This

Every time he looked back Max kept getting closer and closer. He was shouting things at the top of his lungs, and Cocky had a flashback to when he was hanging upside down and screaming every vile threat he knew. Cocky felt tempted to shout back something, but he saved his breath. It was like being chased by a tiny lethal animal that would just shred him to tears if he managed to catch him.
He reached the vine they have climbed and without thinking he jumped on it and started sliding down it. Cocky was just barely breathing above the surface of panic, but he knew he couldn’t afford to try and climb down in a safer way. Not only Max was breathing down his neck now; Sam was also moving around, making everything more difficult. I

Four streaks of red appeared in Cocky’s midsection and he landed on his back, mercifully away from the flames.
“Aargh! Stupid. Stupid stupid STUPID!” Cocky thought bitterly, doubled over in pain. There was no time to dwell on it, however. He rolled over and managed to stand up, shakily. The wizard was trying to do the same. But before he could muster the energy to attack Green Robe again, Cocky looked past

Coukyo Bands and Roles
★Common Band Information★
Interaction between different bands is very common. Almost inevitable in populated regions.
Bands without builders or those knowledgeable on construction usually live in nests. However coukyo are capable of building shacks, huts, and simple housing. Nothing too extravagant like a wood tiled house complete with heating and plumbing.
Bands can be created at any time. However a good foundation is needed, therefore it may be hard. Most commonly, new bands are formed by branching off of larger ones.
All coukyo are expected to stay loyal to the band they were born in. Those who leave for their own reaso

Bright stars twinkled coldly in the night sky. It was chilly, a cold wind blowing over the Veldin wasteland. The Veldinite sitting huddled on a rock ignored it.
Ada was grieving.
After her husband had died, she had been alone, apart from her baby son. He had been all she had, her only company. Until a moments inattention...
She began to sob, burying her face in her hands as she remembered. A seconds distraction, that had been all, and her son had been taken, dragged off by horny toads, shrieking for his mother.
That had been this morning. Now, she waited in the desert to die. The elements, or horny toads, she didn't care which. There was nothing left for her...
And a roar split the silence. Despite her grief, she looked up, as a bright meteor streaked across the sky.
Or was it a meteor?
It was too large, too loud. The roar was the roar of an engine. Ada watched, stunned, as it grew closer to the ground. She hit the deck as it landed, the shock wave rippling her b

It was more than her smile that drew Stoick towards Valhallarama, even as battle blistered around him. He felt compelled to check in on her with every break between conflicts. He needed proof that he still had her. An irrational tenancy to indulge in battle, but one she tolerated.

Max climbed a smoking pile of rubble that was blocking the way. He felt so tired he was actually becoming sluggish. But he couldn’t afford that. He had no idea what he was doing, but he felt a desperate need to do something. At the top of the pile he saw Sam’s back. The muscles were rippling with strange movement, and a purple glow was coming out of the parts of his body that were translucent. Max lost his footing and tumbled down the pile, narrowly avoiding being impaled by a rusty rod. He rolled down and stopped his fall with his sprained hand. He cried out and cursed Cocky once again. But there would be time for that later. Or maybe not.
Max got up and turned around to see Sam face the giant batteries. Why are those things even there, Max thought, and started running as fast as he could. Not fast enough, however. Sam lifted his arms and t
The HeartSpoilers for Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time!The Heart5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
The average male Lombaxian heart weighs approximately 230 to 260 grams. It beats an average of sixty-five times per minute in a state of rest and contains four chambers for pumping the average 4.9 liters of blood contained in the Lombaxian circulatory system. It sits beneath the costal cartilage, approximately six centimeters left from center and averaging eight centimeters below the surface of the skin.
Clank stopped briefly in his calculations to ponder their validity. The Lombax in question, while technically adult, was not entirely average. His body weight of 43.9 kilograms was 28.6% less than the average, and 31.2% less in terms of height at only 149.8 centimeters.
A "runt" as Captain Qwark would have said; though a confusing term, as Lombaxes do not reproduce in litters.
While he was aware that judgements of height were different for one who stood only 67 centimeters, Clank never saw Ratchet as a "runt." It was a dispar

Unbeknownst and unawares,
Of what they do ingest,

On her husband she soon will dine.

Youre secret you must give!
But divulgatory he is not,
For the barber wants to live.
