The Curse of Cat's GraceEarly one morning, Jasmine was looking out her window high above the city. She had nothing important to do until later that afternoon and, knowing she was alone, decided she wanted to escape the castle for a short time to explore the markets of the city below. After putting on a thick robe to disguise herself from begin recognized, the princess used a rope she kept in hidden to repel down the back of the castle, safely entering the busy city.The Curse of Cat's Grace1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
Jasmine explored the various stalls and small shops setup in the market, eagerly perusing their wares. After awhile, she noticed a short alleyway with a candlelit shop at the end of it. She ducked out of the crowd to see what this shop had to offer. The owner inside was similarly robed, and was wearing a veil over her face. Though the shop was moderately dark, Jasmine could make out a variety of pottery and artifacts lining the walls of the shop. One of the artifacts caught her eye though--a choker with a small gold bell on it. She picked it up an

You are as strong

You are as well put-together
as superior and inferior articulating processes
which fit you together

You are as complex

But this complexity
Allows you to breathe
And all this beauty

waiting to burst forth
waiting for the right bones
to clash with yours
and cause your still heart to twitch
You are waiting for the bone of your bone
and the flesh of your flesh
wait for them
Wait until you are as loved
as the lungs are by the ribs
trapped in an eternal embrace
until death do they part

There is no noticeable difference in size between human and werewolf forms. They can be of any height due to the nature of these werewolves.
Like all werewolf species they can be found worldwide. There is no known origin of Lycans as their populations are often unpredictable, usually they rapidly increase in high human density areas and their either take over the area or are wiped out by hunters.
Lycans do not have an extended lifespan; if anything they have a very short one. Given their nature they become prime targets of hunters after they have become active after their first full moon after infection.
Like all werewolves they have enlarged canines though they don't have a distinct characteristic in human form.
In werewolf form, Lycans do not develop any body fur in their werewolf form. They look remarkably like humans when shifted with the exception of wolf-like c

The two boys decided to walk to where Jef said earlier. The young guardian looked around and saw kids playing with his white snow. He grinned delightfully and rested his staff on his right shoulder. Jef suddenly took a right turn and the winter spirit followed.
"Where are we?" Jack asked curiously while staring at the boy beside him.
"I'm the one who supposed to ask you that later." Replied the boy without glimpsing at his young dad.
The young guardian scratched his silver hair and sighed. He didn't say anything afterwards and when Jef stopped, Jack looked at the simple house in front of him.
"Here we are!" said his son cheerfully. "Do you know where this is?"
"Uhh…No…" stammered Jack while tliting his head on both sides.
Groaning, the winter spirit's son walked to the window carefully, trying not to be visible by the people inside. Jef looked through it and saw a girl, about same age as him, playing wit

The sun was bright overhead, the sky a clear blue with a few clouds floating merrily in the soft breeze. They day echoed springtime with bunnies and ducklings and pretty flowers. Not that anyone ever took notice of these things anymore. Charlie hardly glanced at the day’s serenity as she raced across the downtown streets; her feet slamming against the asphalt in time with the pounding of her heart. Her lungs ached as she gulped in each breath and then clamped her mouth shut in attempts not to scream out through pain and fear.
Charlie had to stop. Her side was splitting, her lungs were raw, and she was too close to tears to keep up the pace. She quickly rounded a corner and side-stepped into the closest building. The glass crackled under her feet as she tiptoed through a smashed front window. The building must have been a gym at some point: there were old treadmills, cycling machines, and weights set up in almo

Their meeting wasn't planned, nor had Troy meant to wander into Flash's territory. Boundaries weren't marked, but he should've seen the change; the yellowing grass, the lack of the trees gentle whisper. Instead something else had driven him onwards, perhaps his self-conscience had known where he had been headed but anger had blinded him, propelling him to a spot his father had always forbade him to visit.
His mothers words rang in his ears, he hadn't meant to overhear her conversation to Darko, but each syllable rang with the pain and anguish she had endured during her time within Flash's heard, and for days he'd paced, twisted with the thoughts and images that had been conjured within his mind.

Every time you would come to stay with Jamie he would leave them a little open so the light would do exactly what it did today.

Jack lifted an eyebrow and sniffed under his arm, "Why, does it smell bad?"

Jack shrugged, "I haven't exactly thought of it." He floated over to her and sat down on top of the statue. "Jack, get down from there!" [Name] called up.

All the Guardians belong to Dreamworks and respectful owners...period...not to me
ok...I just made myself sad...
The moment you went into the street the first thought that came into your mind was: 'Damn, I should have brought another coat.'
Not only was it freezing but the wind wasn't helping, either. Hugging yourself, you walked as fast as you could to the park. Your boots sank into the snow, leaving your foot prints. In other circumstances you would have taken a moment or two to appreciate them but not now. You knew that if you took more than ten minutes to meet with your best friend, (he/she) was going to boil you alive.
As if on cue, you felt your phone vibrating in your pocket. You took it out and with no surprise you read your best friend's message:
-Are u near?
You glared at the phone while answering.
-Give me a break! Did u saw how much snow there is? I'll be there soon.
Almost immediately (he/she) send her reply

I might not have mentioned this, but this does in fact take place in the beginning of summer. So Mabel and Dipper had not seen their great uncle for 4 years. And due to the warm weather Dipper of course wore shorts, a red t-shirt, a black vest, and can't forget his beloved hat that never seemed to get smaller. Mabel wore a new sweater that had flaming question mark on it, her ballet flats, and black leggings.
"How've you two trolls been?" He smothered his knuckles in Dipper's head for a noogie.
"We've been great! Look how big Waddles got!" Mabel held up her pig that was now the size of a beagle.

Stiles didn’t know how he had wound up sharing an apartment just outside of Beacon Hills with Erica Reyes, or, even more astonishingly, how they’d actually become friends. In fact, if Scott wasn’t in the picture, she might have even gained the title “best friend”. As it was, she had the almost as awesome title of “best friend who is also a girl” and Stiles was adamant that this would be true even if he had more than one friend of the female variety.
The friendship had come before they moved into an apartment together, of course. It was a good thing it did, too, because Stiles did not like the idea of having to live under the same roof as Scott and Isaac. There were worse than Scott and Allison had been, which was definitely saying something.
