A new pair of glasses gives a young boy a look at the young girl within.
Leighton Johnson had it rough. He was a small boy, somewhat awkwardly shaped.
One would call him skinny, except for his bubble butt. It wasn't huge, but it was noticeable enough for the boys at school to single him out as a target. At only five foot two inches tall, he was much shorter the average ninth grader. His mother, being what one would call a holdover hippy, never took him to get a haircut. It was too dark and beautiful she'd say. His face could best be described as androgynous, with only bushy to steer people towards the assumption that he was male. He spent all his time in comic books, and video games, and understood very little about the current trends and fads of his peers. To top it all off his eyesight was about as terrible as it co

"Yeah sure."Ryan responded. Joseph's mom walked out the door

Pollux, also known to some locals as “the man-in-black”, “black-robed angel”, “creepy mugger”, etc... looked out the window of the small principals office of the rowdy Manhattan high school, counting the number of ticks coming from the nearby clock. Several months had passed since he'd begun to rectify the disturbances in the realms he was entrusted to protect. The snow was gone, and the frequency of rain in the small corner of the world he now stood in was beginning to lessen. Summer was right around the corner, the sun teasing his bare hands as he gazed onto the streets of the aging metropolis that was New York City.
The door to the office clicked open. Pollux knew who it was, so he didn't turn around.
“You're late, Mr. Washington. Have a seat.”
Jayden Alan Washington was a black teenager of about seventeen late-winters.

Jessica was walking through the park, enjoying the beautiful weather.
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.

Jaden sat in Duel Academy's large classroom, trying not to nod off; as Dr. Crowler had threatened to suspend him from Duel Academy if he was caught sleeping in class again. "Jaden Yuki!" Crowler shrill voice called him from across the room. "Please come to the front of the class!" Jaden sighed and stood up. He walked down to the front of the classroom and looked at Crowler. "Yes?" Crowler sighed and pointed to the door. "Chancellor Sheppard has asked for you." Jaden shrugged and walked out of the room. Alexis watched him go from her seat. "Lucky for him," she sighed, pulling out a notebook as Crowler went into full lecture mode. She paused as an envelope fell out of her notebook and onto the floor. "What's this?" she thought as she went to pick up the letter.

Shop Till You DropJames Sanders was dropped off by his mom, at Fair Oaks mall on the last Saturday before school. Their conversation the previous morning had led him here, to the place he most hated. He wasn't a social butterfly. He was kind of a dweeb. His long stringy black hair hung in his face, and he always wore his favorite shapeless hoodie everywhere he went. He looked like the poster child for the slacker generation. Earlier his mother noticed all his clothes were tattered and faded, and she thought he needed some new things before school went back in session. They argued for several hours until finally they came to a compromise that he could go shopping for his own things. She was okay with him having his own style. She just wanted him to be clean.Shop Till You Drop2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

When I went to go and have a shower I gave gran my clothes to be washed, half way through having the shower it suddenly dawned on me that I had forgotten to bring the bag of clothes that I'd packed.

Gran paused for a moment and left to go and get some clothes. After a minute or two she came back, and to my surprise she came back with a frilly girls nightie.

“Harpies have had many iterations within mythology,” Mr. Evans explained while bringing up pictures on his PowerPoint presentation. “In early mythology, they were seen as beautiful, winged maidens. They were like the Greek angels. However, later writings describe them as having faces like ugly old women and the claws of a hawk.” He brought up a slide of what looked like an eagle with the head of a vampire woman. An ugly vampire woman, to be exact.
“Sir,” Alex said while raising his hand, “how could their image change that much?”
“It’s actually quite simple,” the teacher grinned at his student’s interest. “These kinds of things happen all the time. This is just like how we call the Greek legend Heracles ‘Hercules’ because of different iterations and translations and such. Some believe their characterization changed at some point within the Middle Ages and Dante’s Inferno, but no one can

"WOW. Gamefreak is really running out of ideas!" Jake said as he scrolled down the official Pokemon X & Y website. "Mega Evolution, what is this Digimon?" he chuckled to himself. You see, Jake is what the Pokemon community would call a "Gen Wunner". Anything past the original 151 was obsolete to him. He especially hated all games for the DS systems. He hated the way Gamefreak made the game 3D. The designs of the newly introduced Pokemon repulsed him. "Jumping ledges!? The game is officially broken!" The list of loathing for X & Y he had was immense. From cotton-candy themed pokemon to a professor named Sycamore.
Out of all the new features, there was one he absolutely despised. Fairy types. 'They're ruining the game' he thought. He hated that they were retyping perfectly good Pokemon as part fairy. He failed to see how 'Mawile' resembles a fairy in any way.
Being a Gen wunner, he of course hated all the 'eeveelutions'. "Sylveon? Seriously? What

Michael awoke around noon, to the smell of bacon wafting through the house. At first he was startled by the weight of his head, until he remembered his previous days adventures. Rolling out of bed, he noticed a little silk blue robe that matched his nightgown. "When in Rome " he thought, as he slipped on the skimpy cover.
In the kitchen Millie was slaving away, preparing breakfast. She turned towards him, grinning ear to ear, as she heard him enter the room. "Good morning sleepy head. How are you feeling this morning?"
Michael took a seat at the kitchen table, yawning, and rubbing the sleep from his eyes. "I'm fine. My head is a little sore, from all the tugging on my hair."
"Don't worry. We'll take care of that shortly enough. First you need a good meal. We've got a big day ahead of us."

A Dark Stalkers Halloween TG/TF Story
by Gremlin01 and JanusDaGuardian
(Based on the TG comic 'Kitty Cosplay' by Kyo-D.F.)
Mecca was on her way back home from college. It was a cool day outside, the leaves changing color and/or falling off the trees, signifying the presence of the fall season and the fast approach of winter.
That night was Halloween, and although she often didn't give it a second glance, she'd just received a new roommate that semester; a cute roommate, whom she sorta liked, as he did her. This small attraction was probably what drew her to the little Halloween shop, which she strangely didn't recall being there yesterday...
Due to her not being a huge fan of the yearly festivities, on the account of the noise and the cost of goods past “egg-er” and “T.P.-er” protection candy, Mecca didn't have a costume, and, due to their near-equally-busy college/work schedules, John didn't have one either. This ye

“Didn’t meet the criteria? Which ones are you referring, too?”
“Well, let’s see...” Michael’s boss sucked in his breath as he looked over a list placed on the desk in front of him. “There was the claim from a Mr. John Stevins, Ms. Ellen Roberts, and a Mr. Shawn Edwin, and the list goes on from there.

Tommy and his friend were playing Yugioh at the time of the event. Jason, Tommy's best friend and dueling partner, had gotten the better draw in the second duel, having nearly lost the first one to Tommy's Six Samurais, “Six Sams” for short. If he won this duel though, Jason would win the entire match, and, based on the situation on the battlefield, that was a very-real possibility.
So much for Tommy tweaking his deck to gain more fluidity... Jason had utilized his good first-turn hand in just the right way to keep Tommy in a tight spot; Through the clever application of some of his favorite magic cards, and the shrewd use and coverage of their deadly trap counterparts, including “Mirror Force” and “Gozen Match”, Jason and his spellcaster monsters had taken the field, with the exception of Tommy's “Kageki”, a monster with 2000 defense points, and the lucky draw of
Pokemon Report: Elemental TypePokemon Report: Elemental Type4 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
The "Fire" type is unique in its members' ability to create or control fire. Apparently, their cells are protected with a flame-retardant cocktail, while sulfur, phosphorus, and carbon are stored in special organs to produce the flame. These Pokemon tend to be colored with "warm" tones, and since they are virtually fire-proof, can live in incredibly hot conditions (e.g. the inside of a volcano). Fire Pokemon tend to devour metals and minerals straight from the rock, since their cells are unable to properly digest normal food.
"Water"-type Pokemon are generally aquatic or partially so. There is not much of a cellular difference between Water types and Normal types, but they do possess the ability to absorb and release vast quantities of water. Some such Pokemon have the ability to change the weather, generate a wall of concentrated water, and even blast a never-seen plasma form of water.
The "Grass" type is similar in ways to the Bug type, but instead of a primitive mite livi
Humanity GoneWaking up has always been a chore for me. Especially since I have been dreaming a lot. I can remember the times when I enjoyed thinking about my dreams, but the memories are too painful. I already knew what this one meant; it meant I would have to face another rotten day. There was no point in lying in bed when I had work to do, so I stood up, got a towel, and made my way to the bathroom. Despite what had happened eleven years ago, every step I took felt so, alien, and the tiles on the bathroom floor felt even weirder. I stepped in to the shower and closed the door. I let out a sudden gasp of surprise when the cold water hit me. But I shouldn't have been so surprised; after all, the hot water system had just recently been put in so there will still be bugs in the system. The hot water came on a few minutes later, but by that time my fur was already wet and plastered to my body.Humanity Gone2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Ichigo laid in his bed, staring out the window and up into the night sky, thinking, thinking hard. His orange brows were creased with concentration, and a scowl was set upon his face as he thought.
There was a woman, a fair looking woman, with dark purple hair that fell just past her shoulders. Her eyes were amber, a deep, beautiful amber that held such warmth that it could sooth even the coldest of hearts.
Ichigo's eyes narrowed as he tried to recall the rest, reaching into his subconscious and grasping whatever else he could of what happened.
We were in a meadow, and she was in the distance, laughing, twirling in the wind as it whistled past her and enveloped her in its cool arms. When she saw me she stopped. She stopped moving, going into complete stillness. She hardly even breathed, as if her own breath had caught in her throat.
