Jetroids EpilogueEpilogue: Return to Velbus
Our heroes suddenly appeared inside of a darkened laboratory after teleporting from the asteroid. The lab was old and rustic though a lot of equipment inside still worked.
"What is this place?" Yuesbi asked.
"This is..." Aero started.
"...my lab. At least mine and Vaxtus's." Archibald finished.
"How did that Vaxtus dude come with us?" Yuesbi asked.
"I don't know. But the important thing is that he's gone." Sakura said.
"And if we're lucky, he'll never return." Aero said.
Archibald pressed the button on the lab door and went outside into the surrounding forest. Our heroes followed.
"I don't know how glad it is to see this place again after so many years..."
Turning to the others he said,
"Aero, Astro, Sakura, and you too, Yuesbi, you helped foil the plans of an evil tyrant who was bent on taking over this planet. I want to give you my thanks."
"Aww... Thank you." Yuesbi said.
"You are most welcome." Sakura said.

Part 1: Escape from Oscorp
"Somebody better have a good explanation for what just happened here!" said Mr. Denzen furiously. A vein in his forehead was known to bulge when he got especially angry, and it was doing exactly that right now.
A short, slinder boy with thick glasses who couldn't have been more than 30 jogged over to Denzen after looking at a computer monitor.
"Umm, sir, if you come this way, I can explain everything."
Denzen walked towards the computer monitor, and as he did, the boy, whose name was Jake, explained the situation.
"Well, sir, as you know, Oscorp has been developing a super suit based on the symbiotes."
Denzen nodded. By this time they were near the computer monitor. Jake sat down and typed something in quickly, and a graphic popped up on the computer. It displayed a featureless man rotating 360 degrees to show every angle.
"We took samples from every symbiote currently still with us, and well as a few samples we had in storage of oth

Part 2: Boot Information Acquired
The symbiote flew through the air duct, latching on its metal surrounding as fast as it could, with only one thought on its mind: freedom. The problem was it couldn't tell which exit was the right one. It traveled further and further down the vent, but couldn't see a way out. However, it did eventually come upon a deserted office in the Oscorp building. And best of all, it was facing a window.
The symbiote dropped down, and moved slowly towards the window. It pressed itself against the slightest crack in the window, and after some time, it was completely outside the Oscorp building, sticking to the window, and 80 stories up.
Slowly but surely, in the dead of night in Manhattan, it made it's way down the building. When it reached the bottom, it positioned itself in a alleyway next to the Oscorp building. It hid behind a trash dumpster, and began to contemplate its next move.
Several hours later...
The rain had started early tha

Mia came awake suddenly when she heard someone scream. She jumped up ready to pounce on the intruder but looking around she couldn't see anyone other than her Big Sis. He was standing a little ways away shaking slightly, an accusing finger pointed her way. She cocked her head to the side, not knowing what she had done.
Slowly, his shaking stopped and he was able to speak again. “What are you doing curled up to me again.”
He was so silly sometimes, “Because nyou are Mia's Big Sis and it is Mia's job to make sure nyou are warm and comfy.” She tried her best not to laugh at his expression but it was very hard.
He stared at her for a minute with the cutest face before his expression change to the grouchy one that Mia had seen quite a lot lately. He started grumbling again, saying he wasn't her Big Sis. He was just being silly again. Of course he was her Big Sis and no matter how many time he denied it, Mia knew he would always be her Big Sis.

Although I knew it would be hard to convince Mia to stay behind, I was surprised just how hard it was for me to actually leave her there. As I walked over the hill towards the town, I found myself looking back. I could clearly see her as she peeked over the hill, with a nervous glance to the gate to make sure she could not be seen by the guards on the wall, I waved here back into hiding. Why was I so concerned about someone who should be my enemy? Steeling myself I walked on to the gates, this time forcing myself not to look back, in case the guards got suspicious.
I was let through after a short questioning of my intentions in town and an inspection of my bag. Walking through the gates I could see that it was quite a bit larger than the last town I had been to. It actually had a proper market street with food stalls and other shops set up in the buildings that had been properly maintained. The food smelled so good after having spent so much time surviving on road fare but I

At first, Mia was excited. Her Big Sis' hat had been knocked off revealing Neko ears just like hers. She looked at them and knew now why he had not smelled like other humans. Now she would be able to have all kinds of fun with him, running, playing and the best pets ever.
The sound of hissing brought Mia out of her day dream as Big Sis' tail was released from its hiding place. For some reason it was the movement made Mia think that Big Sis was angry. Was it because the other humans had tried to take Mia away from Big Sis. Yes she was scared of being taken away but the humans had just not known any better. She was sure it would be ok if they could explain everything to the humans.
Then the guard next to Mia brought his hollow stick up, pointing it at Big Sis. Before Mia could react, Big Sis had pounced on him, knocking him to the ground. Other human ran towards him but Big Sis was too quick for them. Kicking and punching, Big Sis knocked them down one by one. Mia was so scared

All I can remember was it worried Mom and Dad a lot. They would have arguments that shook the house. I think Mom wanted to move farther West, while Dad wanted to stay put. They argued about it constantly. At that age, all I cared about was the fact that they canceled school. As more reports came in, people started locking themselves in their houses, only coming out when it was absolutely necessary.
It was at this point that I made the biggest mistake of my life. After a week straight of being on lock down I was going stir crazy. I went on a tirade against my parents. The argument that f

I woke laying on a mattress, covered with a bright pink bedspread. Looking around, I found that the room I was in was small and sparsely furnished. Aside from the bed, the only furnishings were a desk with a hard-backed chair bolted to the floor in front of it and a large mirror on the wall above it. The only openings into the room were a door to the bathroom, another door opposite the bed that stayed locked, and a slot in the wall beside the locked door that would only open for meals and whenever there was a new puzzle for me to solve.
That was my world as I knew it. The only way I could tell time was by the three meals a day and the puzzles in between. The food was decent and always came with a pill I was required to take. The puzzle differed regularly. Form jigsaws to word searches. Sometimes they were metal pieces that I would have to pull apart then put back together. Other times it was a code I would have to break. Whenever the puzzles got too easy, the next batch would
Mahou Galaxy: Chapter 11"Kiki done fight. Ship change back now." She urged her BioWarp station, to no avail. For at least ten minutes now, she had been trying everything she could think of to convince the ship to change her and itself back to their previous forms. As nice as it had been to be able to deal with the pirate, the size was starting to feel uncomfortable, especially given how cramped the tiny room felt. Frustrated but not wanting to deal with reporting her failure to the rest of the crew, she decided that the corner would be the appropriate place to sulk. It was then that the velvet pouch caught her attention. Fumbling with fingers that were nearly twice the size she was used to, even before she'd become female, the crystal plopped into her hand, and with what was the least mental strain she'd put herself through over the last couple hours, the gem began to glow. It was very pretty, a shifting rainbow of colors much like the mahoucite wires that she'dMahou Galaxy: Chapter 119 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Keith read over the old Golden Alliance BioWarp Mage cadence again for the fifth time in as many days. As the introductory passage to the BioWarp Mage article, it clearly had relevance to others who performed the same duty, both in the past and present, but she wondered how many of them had managed to learn how to channel energy in the same sort of situation as her. The rest of the article was interesting, of course, and she pored over it, absorbing the most interesting facts. The first BioWarp mages were Mytharian High Elves who had descended from great wizards but were unable to grasp the intricacies of casting spells. Galactic ANarchist BioWarp Mages can use their teleportation ability to temporarily utilize their abilities with remote-piloted drones. Dryads are ofte

While Surveillance got the updated feed from the cameras in Kore's depot, Cetz went over the most current aerial photos of the area. They showed that a small force of people and equipment had moved, on the hunt for something. If Will and Louis were right and Watch One was looking for Doctor Palmer, not the virus, than Watch Two had lost all possible leads during the lockdown. Cetz groaned at the world and leaned back in his desk chair.
"Damn Watch politics," he said.
Watch Two was instructed to retrieve the virus, and they did. Mission complete, back to business as usual. They didn't have to go after Palmer and they didn't have to stick their nose in Watch One's business. But after being nearly screwed over by Martin Za

Watch One sent for Martin Zachs, Agent Ian, and Palmer late Sunday evening. Their departure was quiet, but it was a relief for all those that involved. The memory of Zachs was like an infection, leaving them to wonder if anyone else in the Watch could be turned as easily as he had. What bribes could turn them to such a man.
Early Monday morning Reese came into work with his own bribe, a four-pack of Monster, and set it on Beni's desk.
"That's one weak-ass apology," said Louis, standing behind him.

"You know we don't really need to clean this stuff," said Louis, tossing the wood cleaner to Will on the ladder. The ballroom with all the wood paneling and gilded marble columns was massive; one bottle of Murphy's Oil wasn't going to take care of it all.
To get the Luvor properly wired up with Surveillance, Cetz had a team consisting of Beni, Reese, Will, Louis, and Franklin go in as part of the maintenance crew. Fake IDs proclaiming them help hired especially for the fundraiser were made and the polo uniforms handed out.

The ceiling wasn't really all that impressive, yet Keith still couldn't stop looking at it. It wasn't because it was displaying anything anymore--for the past four hours Heinrich had been showing him old holo-videos in an effort to teach him the basics of galactic history--but rather because the human still couldn't find any way to convince himself to go to sleep. Now he had quite a bit more to reflect on. He hadn't gleaned very much from the videos, as they were hosted by a pair of ghostly commentators who allegedly were doomed to watch terrible old holo-videos from the theater they haunted, and he had a hard time hearing any actual facts over Hein's loud, growling laughter at the jokes they made. With a little more context, Keith probably would have understood them, but for now he had to make do with what he managed to pick up from the archival footage.

“God I miss my backpack.” I muttered. It had been three days since I had had a decent meal. You would think that in a forest this size, there would be more to eat, but there had been bad weather threatening for the last week so all the game was staying on alert for any intruders to their territory. I was no master hunter, what with sticking mainly to scavenging the cities, so without a gun or at least a bow, my options were extremely limited. I had managed to catch a squirrel in a makeshift trap, but the other animals had been a bit more cautious. The few berries and edible plants I had been able to find along the path had provided for the rest of my meals, but my stomach was still growling. I knew the next town was about a day's walk away, but without anything to trade I couldn't even get a glass of water, damn scalpers. I would have to scrounge for food or something I could trade before I went in.
With only a few hours of daylight left, I began to look fo

In a command deck larger than the the entire area of the Cassie's Machination, a red-skinned woman sat in the captain's chair, so lavish as to practically be a throne, with her legs crossed in a manner that implied refinement. Absentmindedly, she swirled a long-stemmed glass of translucent liquid while mentally she counted down until the moment that it would be best for her image to answer.
"You may proceed, Javier. Let's hear it."
The three-eyed man sat at the communications station replied coolly. "Of course, Mistress. She says that she's completed her objective path around the planet and is returning to the hangar bay. She's fairly certain that she wasn't picked up by any of the cities' instruments as she was never asked to transmit her reason for arrival."

Mahou Galaxy: Chapter 8The BioWarp station wasn't exactly cramped, measuring six feet wide and a bit more than double that from the doorway to the back wall, but it still seemed like it would be a little claustrophobic, and certainly too plain to want to spend any more time in there than was absolutely needed. In the back corner, Keith had set all of her possessions, totaling a pile of clothes that seemed likely to never fit anymore, a crushed tape player, still cradling a mostly-intact tape stuffed to the brim with low-fidelity Haydn, and the Fairy's wedding gift, tucked neatly away into its velvet pouch. She'd meant to get back to practicing with it, but it would have to wait until they'd successfully entered BioWarp. The real thing was better, after all. As for the cassette player, smashed out of operation at some point during the initial meeting with Heinrich, she figured Sergio would have the ability to repair it, or at least find a way to transfer the music from it.

When she saw the flurry of doctors, all of them different races, rushing to get the crates off the abnormally large freight elevator, she quelled her thoughts on the subject of magic and set to the task with complete diligence. Besides, whether it was the higher oxygen content or something different about her body, she had a bit more energy than usual, so she figured she might as well put it to good use.Mahou Galaxy: Chapter 69 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

"I seriously doubt that whatever happened here was planned, Hein. I mean, look at him!"
Slowly, the voices of the ship's crew members faded into Keith's ears. The events that had just transpired still fresh in her mind, she didn't bother taking the time to doubt what had just happened, though a part of her wished she could. Opening her eyes, she saw that she had become rather acquainted with the utility room's floor. Groaning audibly, she pushed one arm against the floor and spun her upper torso around to face the other three, who all went silent the moment they noticed her.
For a beat, there was nothing from any of them. The other three had noticed the long hair, but the crumpled clothing that covered her had done a good job of hiding her new slight, girlish figure, and only now that gravity was pulling her now sizes-too-large shirt over the c

She had just been wandering, going from one place to another without a clear idea for where it was she was going. So she was lost in a matter of speaking. She just knew that she was searching for Big Sis. Mia didn't know where Big Sis was, she just knew that Big Sis was in the direction she was going. She didn't know why but she had a feeling in her gut that constantly pulled her in the right direction. Mia didn't have anything else, no memories before waking in the middle of nowhere and no one to look over her, so she trusted the feeling. It had to be right. Otherwise she really would have nothing.

"Whoa, what the hell?" Keith sputtered as he stumbled through the door, propelled by the ridiculous strength of the wolf-man behind him. Inside the ship, he saw a dinged but relatively clean metallic hallway leading to a four-way intersection. For a moment he struggled to get back out, but the door sliding shut behind the wolf-man was Keith's first indication that this might not be the best idea. His protestations fell on deaf ears, and as he began to form another plea for rationality, he looked up at the alien's face. There was something there that hadn't been before, a determination signified by a furrowed brow and locked gaze. Rather than risk angering him by blocking his path, Keith scurried forward to the intersection, looking in all directions to see hallways down each of them. His captor's pace increased along with his own, and before Keith could ask which way to go, the wolf-man had burst into a full run, hooking a left where the hallways met and r

The day after their excursion into Dapplewood, Dr. Penny Stacy was led into the bowels of the Glenbrook Mental Asylum by one of their lead psychologists, Dr. Jenkins, following one of the only leads she was able to dig up when it came to who might know something about the intelligent animals in Dapplewood.
"We hope from what we've shown you so far that we've successfully demonstrated that our facility provides the best care it can to its patients," said Dr. Jenkins, somewhat nervous after having someone from the National Institute of Mental Health drop by for a surprise inspection, "However, the ones you're about to see were certified as criminally insane. We've done all we can to help them, but, well…"

After twenty minutes of cautious waiting, Zipper snuck through the doors to Thorn Valley, unguarded at the moment. Behind the door was a huge underground chamber, with stairs circling either side, filled with more dazzling crystals. Rats wandered around below, going about their daily business, dressed in capes and robes. He couldn’t see where the others had been taken, so he decided to fly on and investigate. The walls seemed to have little apartments carved into them, where each rat lived. He watched as a rat drew water from a fountain at the center of the chamber, upon which a statue of an elderly rat with a long flowing mustache and a scepter was situated. A stand with food was situated at the other end of the chamber. The food seemed to be given out free of charge. And the chamber was illuminated by great electric light bulbs near the ceiling.

Penny breathed a heavy sigh as she parked her car at the staff parking spot at NIMH, taking the key out of the transmission and gripping the steering wheel. She wore her lab coat and her usual uniform but her hair was unkempt, and she’d neglected to wear her makeup. She felt as if those things didn’t matter much anymore.
Somehow, she worked up the willpower to open the door and step out of the vehicle, closing the door behind her. She couldn’t name a time in her life where she’d been filled with more dread. But she knew just what she was going to do when she got in. Penny walked up to the entrance of the building, and swiped a key card through a slot at the door to enter.
