Jake stirred awake, feeling his body still in its dragon form. He yawned and moved slowly, working the kinks out of his back. The mattress wasn't the most comfortable, but it was better than the concrete floor.
It was the next day after the changes had first started. Jakes Grandfather had taken him down to the harbor and led him to a warehouse just inside the waterfront. Inside crates of all sizes had been stacked up to the ceiling, nearly filling the room save for a small office area which Jakes Grandfather had told him he'd be sleeping in.
"G, are you serious?" Jake had said at the time, falling back to his slang out of habit, "There isn't even enough room to swing a skateboard, let alone stand up."
"Do not worry young one," Jakes Grandfather had noted patiently, "By the end of tomorrow, you won't have to worry about sleeping in there. But you must swear to me, that no matter what happens, you will not leave this building until the changes are done."

Its a tiny version of the Fenton Thermos! Jack Fenton said excitedly a pair of vision enhancing glasses over his eyes. It works exactly the same as the Fenton Thermos but its better for surprise attacks on ghosts!
Danny closed one eye and opened the other as wide as he could and could just make out the tiny piece of metal. He rubbed his eyes and said, Dad, how did you

Jack tapped the glasses on his head and said, With the Fenton Magnifiers of course! Its taken over six months to build and its not quite done yet but when it is itll be the next step in ghost fighting evolution!

By William Douglas
It's curious how events occur
I sit and ponder
Chains that link behind us
A pothole on the road through life, to coin a tired metaphor
When looked upon from further down the trail
Seems to have more impact than we knew
We roam around without a navigator
Souls collide and merge and split
From a billion different chances, or reasons
A one-way lane is carved ahead to a destination we cannot see
Borrowing eachothers' shortcuts
We still get everywhere the longest way
We cannot reverse our footsteps
But it's easy to look at where we left them
And once again I ponder
Other routes I may have trodden
And never have seen the things I have
But through thick and thin we get there in the end

Several days after the first demonstration, Athena was at work to master her airbending. At Splinter's instructions, Donny made a section of the new lair into an Avatar-Training Course. But by far, only the Airbending section of the room was finished. The lesson on that particular day was, as Splinter had told her, to follow the path with the least resistance.
For this lesson to be taught, Splinter had told Donny to set up a section of panels called Airbending Gates. The rat had insisted that for Athena to master the art of airbending, the gates had to spin with the use of a large fan that Don had installed in the wall nearby. Once the gates were moving fast enough, Donny would shut off the fan and the real training would begin.
According to Splinter, Athena would have to weave her way across the spinning gates without touching them. She thought it would be easy enough, but on

It had been a year since Splinter and his "sons" have begun to live in the sewers and had undergone the mutation that made them complete outcasts in the human world. Although it was difficult to adjust at first, the rat eventually grew to accept his new life, since his old one had been destroyed by one of great evil. To protect his sons from the fate that took Splinter's master, Hamato Yoshi's, life; Splinter decided when the turtles were old enough, he would teach them Ninjitsu, the way of the shadow ninja.
However, he did not know that there would be five students instead of four.
It was a brisk December day in New York City and Splinter was topside in an alley, gathering food for his four five-year-old sons and himself. Normally, Splinter never left the sewers unless it was an emergency or for food. Fortunately for Splinter, it was the latter. After finding and gathering food from bou

A Chance at Normality
It was a Friday night and Athena was sighing with relief as she and her brothers helped April with the renovations of an antique store that had belonged to April's father. The reason she was relieved was that she was finally able to take a break from her Avatar training, with the help of her brothers. Especially with the mess she made that morning.
When she awoke that day, Athena had heard the sounds of her brothers trying to barter with Splinter for something again. She just sighed as she grabbed some clothes and went into the bathroom for a shower. Not just because she was dirty from the soils of her labor, but because she was tired of just trying to airbend and wanted to try to waterbend. And the bathroom was a good, private place to try it out.

What Happens When You Airbend with Michelangeo
After another week of rest, Athena had completely recovered and was ready to learn how to bend. During her rest, Splinter had told his childrenthat Athena will temporarily cease ninja activities to focus on her bending training. After the boys finished at least five scrolls each, they gave the scrolls they had read to their sister, who began to read the Airbending scrolls. Another of Splinter's instructions was that Athena was to master air first, then water, earth, and finally fire.
But for now, Airbending came first, but not without a few fiascos.
It was the first day of Athena's training and the young Avatar was stepping out of her new room. Since she was taking a break from Ninjitsu, she was dressed in a bright green tank top and jean shorts that went to her knees as well as socks and tennis shoes. The scrolls and her

It had been a couple of days since the night the Hamato family moved into their new lair, and Athena was still out cold. When the family met Casey Jones, they had to tell him that it would be a while before he could meet her. Now, with Athena comatose on the fourth day, the turtles' worries were escalating and expressed in their own way.
Michelangelo would skateboard along the pipes, trying to ease his worries with adrenaline rushes. But even with all of his best tricks, his thoughts were still on his little sister.
Donatello used his spare time to see to Athena's medical needs to the point where he was planning to build a CAT scanner. With Athena out of commission, he immediately took the post as Family Physician. But aside from his sister's health, Donny struggled to figure out what had happened that night.

The brilliant sun had set over Boston two hours ago, cloaking the night sky with a dark purple that reflected the light of the aetherial space beyond the Terran sphere. The royal palace at the center of the city, surrounded by gardens, had lit its lamps and cast a yellow glow on the plaza that had centuries before been home to a great and monstrous resonating chamber of a city hall; down the hill to the east, overlooking the waterfront, the thaumaturgically-calibrated clock of the ancient Custom House Tower struck eight. Across the mouth of the Charles River to the north, the Ainsley family of Charlestown was sitting down for after-dinner tea. Far above, amid the bright stars and the orbiting metropolis of the Terran Light spaceport, a great dark threat sprung from an unknowable distance spread its tendrils wide, its eye fixed on this shining seat of the pan-galactic Empire of Earth.

Drums begin to thunder in the distance, the poundings of hundreds of feet shake the earth.

Steel flashes, shields are splintered, blood is spilled.
Battleaxe clashes against sword, pike against mace.
A warrior grimaces as a dagger enters his ribcage, pulling it out, he fights on.
The drums continue, increasing in tempo.
The sun reaches its zenith and many have fallen, yet hundreds fight on.
Sweat drips from every brow, the smell of death fills the air.

Another falls to the thrust of a spear, his body thuds to the churned earth.

Her words were tangled in filaments. She cupped her hand in front of her mouth when speaking, cradled the sounds like children, keeping them close in case she had to try to pull them back. Maybe she was ashamed when they were stocky and short, and stumbled, not quite ringing out with confidence. In her apartment, instead of slippers, she strapped on high-heels, dreaming of elegance.
But though she clicked on the pastel floor-tiles, chipping the gray roses in the kitchen, and left finger smears on the metal refrigerator door as she grabbed it for balance, she could not glide. And so the red-strapped heels did not step over the threshold, but came only as far as the hallway mirror, where Jenny would shuffle in a circle, critically squinting at freckles and rounded cheeks.
She was uncertain in other areas of her life. When she drove her car, she pressed the brakes and gas pedal simultaneously, sometimes even realizing it, but never quite being able to change. The flashing
