An exhaustive informational brochure on the subject of headcrabs and their hosts.
Everyone knows what headcrabs are. Most people have seen them crawling along, seemingly harmless with their tiptoe-like gait... but this is a facade. The true intent of the headcrab is far from harmless. You see, as long as there are headcrabs, there wil be zombies. Sewers, and in some cases entire towns are infested with them. Because of their abundancy, they are a constant threat- but the vital information within this brochure shall see you through any infestation. As many a great warrior once said, KNOW THINE ENEMY. That is the purpouse of this guide. There is an untold wealth of information here that can allow you to cripple your enemy from the inside, out.

Light Vs. Darkness
We are in a never ending battle.
We try to kill the other.
But the truth is we cannot live without the other.
If there is no darkness light will burn itself out.
Without light there can be no darkness.
But it is still a never ending battle between us.
and it's a battle we do forever.

I am the shade that hides from the sun.
I am the one who lets the star shine
No one can see through me.
I am dense.
But I can never leave the ground
I am everywhere with in site.
Without me there can be no light.
I am ever lasting.

the crows have taken their pound of flesh and eaten it raw,
dragging their voices down the chalkboard sky.
medicated, i watch them feed with empty Auschwitz eyes,
every day is the same claustrophobic affair over again.
i miss the taste of axenic fear in my throat,
but my new world is monochrome and i am forced to swallow their synthetic ambrosia.
twisted into my fetal pose, i mark the walls misted from my metric breath,
they say those in glass houses.. but i have no stones to throw
or i would waste this crystal mausoleum from the inside.
they nailed my wings to the floor,
they keep me tranquilized and tell me this is home.
the shower drains are clotted with famous last words,
this is where savages and wandering savants come to die.
i am the leaden albatross around my own neck,
my metamorphosis brought me here.

It didnt take long for Kiba, Naruto, and Akamaru to reach Shukaku. His attention was so focused on attacking the Village that he didnt have time to waste watching for bugs at his feet. This was to the defending ninjas advantage. Tsunade had dispatched a ANBU squad to subdue Shukaku but when they saw Kiba, Naruto, and Akamaru approaching the beast they stayed back. They did this mostly because they were curious about the enhanced ninjas powers. If anything went wrong theyd be able to jump in and assist them. Naruto and Kiba stopped a few feet from the sand beast while Akamaru hung back waiting for an order from Kiba. Naruto put his hands together and called out, Shadow Clone Jutsu!
Instantly fifty muscle Narutos appeared around Shukaku, ready for action. Naruto turned to Kiba and said, Gaaras going to be somewhere on this monsters head. If we can do enough damage to his real

The sun broke over the chilly roof tops of the New York skyline. It would be another couple hours though before it worked its way down the streets and canyons of the tall buildings.
In the residential area, in a simple building is where our story begins.
A loud alarm blared as a red clawed hand smashed it. Jake Long yawned and sat up in bed, scratching his black hair and trying to wake up. It'd been almost ten years since he'd become the American Dragon and protector of all the hidden magical creatures of New York. And even though he nearly had a decade of experience under his belt, he still had a few surprises in store.
The first big surprise of the day was his hand. He couldn't recall commanding it to change to dragon claws.
"Jake," Came his father's voice, "It's time to get up."
Sh*t, Jake grimaced and hid his hands under the covers as his dad opened the door.
"Come on son. Don't wanna' be late for you classes now." Jakes dad seemed to bounce with joy.
Digital SnowAsh, Misty, Max, Brock and May were worn out from a long day of training and adventuring. Max, being the youngest, had mostly gone to watch and study (being 8 years old). He desperately wanted Pokemon of his own to train, but he wasn't allowed to, until he was ten. Until then, he had his playful Poochyena companion who he kept as a pet. Also, being 8, Max was the first to be ready to leave in the morning, and usually the first to wear out. Everyone in the group was fairly tired, and they were walking towards nearby Faytown.Digital Snow8 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

"That's not fair. Fish is icky and gross." It was no secret to everyone in the tribe that Takoda didn't like fish, but Wematin and a few others have been trying to get him to at least try it. Of course, with the little cub being as stubborn in this one single regard, all attempts have failed.
"I'm sorry you feel that way, but if you don't eat any of it tonight then you're just gonna have to go to bed hungry with an empty stomach." Wematin didn't like being this stern, but he didn't see any alternative this time.

The next second was as if a bomb had gone off in the building. Jake felt as if his whole body had exploded with the surge of energy that rush through it. But just as fast it was over.
When Jake opened his eyes, his dragon vision saw through the clouds of dust all around him. It took him a minute to understand what he was seeing though. It was the edge of the hole in the roof.
He was a giant.
Standing at 40 feet tall, the top of his head stuck out of the roof. His arms brushed the walls as he shifted and he could feel his tree-trunk thick tail sweep whole crates away, turning them into splinters just by touching them.
He had to act fast, the criminals were blinded from the dust thrown up by his growth, but they'd be able to see again soon.

Sonic sighed as he glanced behind him on the way to the bathroom. It wasnt bad enough that Amy was dragging him to some stupid party she had forced him to dress up! He was wearing a light blue button down short and a pair of dark blue pants complimenting his normal color scheme. Amy never seemed to mind him running around in nothing but shoes and gloves but whenever they went out she forced him to become decent. Amy herself was dressed in her normal red dress and bow. She was slightly dressier than Sonic (though she had tried to force him to dress up more than just a nice shirt and pants) and had an expression that clearly said she thought he was being wholly unreasonable. She crossed her arms and tapped her foot waiting for him to get his rear in gear. He opened the bathroom door and said, Before we go Im going to make myself smell nicer at least.

Jake awoke the next morning feeling quite groggy. Not to mention stiff from lying on the concrete floor. His mind worked slowly, developing the observation that he was indeed lying on the concrete into the question Why was he lying there? and from there it took a little longer to reach the answer to that one.
But when it happened it was like a bolt of electricity jumpstarted his mind. The memories of the other day came flooding back. And this time the next question how could he be lying there when he was so big? came much faster.
Jake rose onto his clawed hands and looked around. The warehouse was near empty now, save for the pile of broken wood he assumed was the remains of all the crates yesterday, pressed up against the far right wall. The guard hut to the left was in ok condition still, but the windows in it had been shattered and the front was bowed inwards somewhat. All in all, signs that sho

(A Digimon muscle growth story)

It was just another average day in your average high school
"Outa' the way, shrimp!"
The next thing he knew, Takato was laying on his backpack, in the hall outside his classroom.
Guilmon bent down next to his partner and silently offered Takato his clawed hand as they both glared at his assailant.
Rich was one of the worst kind of bullies. Large, thickly built, and with a brain the size of a chickpea. Rich sneered down at Takato, struggling to get up with a backpack full of heavy books.
"You better stay outa my way from now on, shrimp." Rich glared.
"Yah," chimed in Riches Digimon, a gray, rabbit looking Gazimon. "And that goes for your dumb lizard pet, too."
The two bullies guffawed loudly and headed into the back of the classroom while Takato and Guilmon sat near the windows in the front.
It had only been two years ago that Takato had helped defeat the D-Reaper, and only a few months after that the boundaries

He took a deep breath in and then let it out slowly.
He'd had a good day today, spending his entire time out on the beach, enjoying the sun, listen to the waves. He was pretty sure he'd even dozed off a few times.
Work had been pressing him harder and harder lately, and he was glad for some time to himself. The day had passed too quickly as far as he was concerned and the sun was already below the horizon.
He took another deep breath, letting it out quickly this time, and then stretching his arms out.
He didn't want to leave and he certainly didn't want to have to go back to work tomorrow.
Leaning back on his arms, he stared out into the water, enjoying his last few minutes of freedom, before he had to go back home.
A small breeze blew in his face, and although it felt nice, he could feel a chill on the edges of it, and seeing as he was only wearing a T-shirt and shorts, he knew it was going to get cold pretty fast now the sun was gone.

The sound of the letter box in his front door flapping woke him up, even if he didn't know what the sound was. He had fallen asleep in the armchair in his lounge again, and he was instantly sore from it. Moaning, he shook his head a little to try and wake himself up, before trying to focus his eye on the clock on his DVD player.
It read 10:34.
Shit. I gotta start going to my actual bed instead of falling asleep in front of the telly. At least then my alarm would wake my up.
Standing up, groaning while he did it, he stretched and nearly ended up back in the chair as his vision faded; the suddenness of his standing making the blood rush to his head.
Damn it. I hate it when that happens.
He walked over to the TV, for a second studying the blank screen of 'No Signal' for one of the many Satellite channels, and turned it off. Walking into the hallway, he realised two things. One was that he hadn't changed his clothes since yesterday
