Ben was not happy. Not happy in the least. How had his cousin managed to get caught up in the shady business of speakeasies and get mixed up with the worst possible crowd?
Here I thought you had smarts. The brunette muttered over the steering wheel.
Excuse me? Gwen quirked a brow.
What were you thinking applying for a job on your vacation? And at Charmcasters to boot? As if that wasnt bad enough you let that chump Levin get his paws all over you!
Normally, Gwen would have let Bens little outburst slide. Her cousin was just worried about her and being overly protective as men were expected to be of women. And she understood why Ben would be so worked up about her place of employment. But to accuse her of lacking restraint where Kevin was involved?
That was simply uncalled for!

To Grandmother's HouseOnce upon a time, in a far off land, there lived a young woman named Gwen.To Grandmother's House7 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Her hair shone a brilliant red, as fiery as the passion burning within her slender frame. Her eyes were a bright emerald. They gleamed with naivety whenever her lips widened to a welcoming smile and they flashed with spite whenever she made a cutting remark.
One fine morning Gwen had been tasked to bring her grandmother a basket laden with an assortment of dried meat, preserved jams and freshly baked bread. It was a duty she did not begrudge for the young woman enjoyed exploring the nearby woods where her grandmother lived. Especially ever since she found a four-legged companion nearly five summers ago.
She travelled down the dirt road towards the forest, enjoying the wind that ran its fingers through her sun-kissed hair. The basket swung enticingly from the crook of her bare, slender arm, but young Gwen had no need to worry about the gift for her grandmother. Her delicate form belied an unusual strength that ma

The clocks in the Tennyson house showed a quarter-past five on their faces before Ben arrived. He found Gwen waiting for him in the living room, dressed in what he assumed was as daring as Gwen was capable. The sleeves were still present though shortened to end just a few inches above her elbows and he supposed the calf-length skirt was better than nothing. Her feet were clad in flat step-in shoes, obviously designed for comfort rather than style. It was then he noticed Gwen was absently cutting cards with one hand. She didnt even seem to be concentrating much; the movement of her fingers was fluid, practiced, like she could do this blindfolded.
What are you doing? Ben blinked as he watched in surprise as his cousin suddenly fanned out the cards on the table to flip them all in one smooth sweep of her hand.
Calming myself down. She replied, her voice lacking all signs of anxiety.

She hurt. Everywhere. Every muscle, every fiber, every cell in her body screamed in agony if Gwen so much as breathed too deeply. She was lying on a small cot within a room that smelled of grease and tar. If she could open her eyes without feeling a million white hot needles jabbing at every inch of her skin, she would have seen the strange figure hovering beside her still form.
"The effects of the neural-staff should be wearing off soon." The same metallic voice stated. "You're quite lucky to have survived that match. Though I suppose that's the only thing that has kept your species alive all these eons. Given how delicate you humans are."
As the minutes passed, Gwen's body gradually regained its normal sensitivity.
"To be quite honest I am highly disappointed that I ended up beaming a human, a juvenile one at that, instead of the Petrosapien."
He's talking about Ben! Gwen realized.
"You humans make for very poor gladiators. You barely pass

A smoking wreckage lay where the Megacruisers gladiator arena had been. Half the audience stand had been obliterated, reduced to little more than rubble. The remaining seats were empty, devoid of spectators as those that did not initially perish scrambled to flee into the teleportation room.
Shrapnel was imbedded in nearly every surface, the ceiling, the remaining arena walls and a massive mountain made of solid crystal. Sheltered behind this towering structure were two figures as far apart in appearance and personality as possible. The smaller one of the pair was a young, human girl who had caused a large portion of this once grand source of entertainment to explode. She was standing behind the larger of the two who, despite his current appearance, was a fellow human.
Well? Can you get the ship working again? Gwen asked, trying to peer over the hulking boys shoulder.
Yeah, but a lot of it is toast. He nodded, though the disa
TrapsSeasoned criminals knew how to keep a low profile and refrained from bragging. Loose lips often meant novices, rookies with something to prove to the rest of the underworld. The talented ones would come to learn how to discern between a genuine client and an undercover cop. Those who didnt come up to snuff, well, they were snuffed out quickly or brought to justice. In certain cases, those lacking the necessary skills were offered deals in exchange for freedom or a lighter sentence or protection.Traps7 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Argit was never thought of as one of the best dealers but he was never considered to be at the very bottom of the barrel either. In the polices best assumption he was somewhere in the lower tier but definitely a couple of levels above the lowest rank.
So the information he provided rarely merited genuine concern or attention. His leads and his tips usually resulted in a dead end, or was common knowledge everyone knew about it already or the occasional decoy.
But this time?
Snakes and Ladders - 1"8 years and you're still nothing but a child, Ben." Gwen said, holding up the bag full of food for her grandfather.Snakes and Ladders - 19 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"Here you are Grandpa." she said sweetly.
"Thanks Gwendolen. Ben, stop playing around and put the fire out." Max said as he took the bag.
Gwen turned and stuck her tongue out happily as her cousin slowly shrunk back to his 18 year old height.
"Oh fine Grandpa, but I was only getting ready for the trip." he said with a slight laugh.
"Ben, your 18 for Gods sake! The Omnitrix isn't a toy!" Gwen barked. She glared her cousin down and turned sharp on her heel, heading towards the back of the camper.
"Now you two, don't start fighting." Max said with a groan.
"Fine!" Ben spat, marching into the camper past his grandfather and Gwen, bumping hard into her shoulder as he went, only making her raise her fist.
"Gwendolen don't yo-" Max began, but was cut off. A sharp flash of light went off between the two teenagers and shot them both back a few feet.

The mall was closing. In a matter of minutes, the stores would close and the shoppers would all go home for the night. The mall santa had been there for hours and they were starting to wear on him. The line to se him was being closed at that very moment. The older man looked around towards a little shape off to the side. Sure enough, the boy was still there. The child had been sitting there by himself for the past seven hours without moving from that spot. He wasnt much to look at, a shabby little thing with a ragged coat and a pair of rubber boots that were certainly not meant for the biting temperatures of the winter cold. Two brown eyes turned in the old mans direction and, upon seeing him meeting their gaze, looked quickly away.
The man got up from his seat and walked over to the small child, who couldnt be more than nine or ten.
Snakes and Ladders - 2Gwen had never known true silence unless Ben was asleep, but even then it only lasted for a few fleeting moments before he began to snore. At her own home she never really got silence anyway, whether she was at her mothers house with that blasted broken ceiling fan, or at her fathers house with the hum of the air conditioning always blowing above her head.Snakes and Ladders - 29 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Yet here on this ship, it was quiet, an odd sort of calm unfit for her depressed mood. She dozed off a few times, every now and then waking up to a thunking noise, but then dozed off again out of sheer boredom.
A louder thunk woke her from her dazed sleep this time and she sat up to see Hinu setting up a cot in the corner of the room.
"I see you've finally woken up, Gwendolen." he said as he turned, dropping a greenish blue pillow onto the center of the bed.
She just looked around a while, running her fingers through her hair. "Gorg's coming down the hall, don't keep her to long." Hinu said as he slithered out, shutting the door behi
Part 1: Lost ChancesGwen groaned softly as she slowly opened her eyes. She regretted that decision immediately, as even the soft light filtering in through the thin curtains caused the throbbing pain in her head to worsen. Squinting her eyes against the light she tried to determine what had caused her to wake. It didnt take long. Something moved in the bed beside her and Gwen brought her hand to her mouth in horrified realization that the something was actually a someone.Part 1: Lost Chances8 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Kevin mumbled Gwens name as he rolled over in his sleep and reached for the soft, warm body beside him. Gwen almost leapt from the bed when Kevins hand grazed the bare skin of her torso and settled at her waist, drawing her body closer to his. Almost as quickly, her entire body froze and the breath stuck in her throat as she realized she wasnt wearing anything, and neither was he.
What have I done?
Her brain scrambled to piece together the fragmented events of the previous night, transforming
Ben 10 - Out Of The WoodsOnce upon a time, later, in the same far off land lived the young girl named Gwen. As far as the nearby villagers were concerned, she was an ordinary child of ten summers. After all, there was nothing unusual about her short, fiery hair or her vibrant emerald eyes, even if both physical traits gave people the impression that she would grow up to be a fine beauty.Ben 10 - Out Of The Woods7 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Little did they know that she would also grow up to be a fine sorceress. At least as far as Gwens grandmother, the witch Verdona who lived in the very heart of the forest, was concerned. Bringing her a basket of food was the excuse, learning the ways of wizardry and sorcery was the reality.
Studying magic had been Gwens reason to see her eccentric grandmother, but after her lessons, she had no other cause to linger in the woods. But ever since she made a new friend, the young girl found herself wanting to explore the forest for purposes beyond practicing her incantations.

Gwen's breathing hitched when his fingers slipped between the cloth and her skin, not entirely surprised but certainly not prepared for it. Kevin smirked into the kiss and slid his fingers around her waist maintaining the same slow, idling manner as he reached the zipper and slid it down as if they had all the time in the world. God… if he does everything this slow I think I'm going to die. Her hands rose tentatively, slipping under the hem of his shirt and she was more than a little delighted at the feeling of his stomach muscles twitching as her fingers splayed out against them. She felt him groan and this time she smirked into the kiss but it faltered and her mind went blank when he pushed her skirt to the floor. Kevin's chuckle rumbled in his chest

Seeing Ike dining with one of the breakfast patrons at The Usual was nothing out of the ordinary. The diminutive gentleman was the liaisons officer after all so it only stood to reason he would entertain a guests request especially when it was his presence they demanded.
Thanks for seeing me. A woman, face swathed in a dull-colored scarf, nodded. She had not removed the oversized hat whose brim easily covered the remaining features that her scarf had not concealed. Though she was dressed plainly, it was hard not to notice her given her height which was even more emphasized by Ike who was seated across her.
Think nothing of it. He wisely refrained from mentioning her name.
Nervously, the woman pulled her hat even lower over her face, I heard you were asking about some girls, but sorry I aint got nothing that you dont already know. I do know about where the stolen stuff is being kept.

At the moment, Gwendolyn was sitting on a rocking chair. 'Where?' you might ask, in the room of her future kids. The room was a pretty color, it was an ocean blue color. Two cribs were seperated one to the left side of the room and the other on the right. In the coner of the room was a little shelf with baby books on it like 'Good Night Moon' to 'Where The Wild Things Are'.
Gwendolyn was lounging on the rocking chair wearing a navy shirt and joging pants. You could see a baby bump appearing on her abdomen. She smiled warmly as she lay her hand on the baby bump. Inside of the baby bump was two budles of joys, her joys. Her's and Kevin's little joys.
Gwendolyn got up from the rocking chair and walked downstairs to the family room. When she got there she saw her husband, Kevin Levin, asleep on the couch with the tv still on. She sighed inaudibly. They were going to chose the name for there baby. She walked to the couch and sat down next to him. In his sleep,

LAME summary, I need to work on that.
He stared up at the night sky his hands behind his head in the grass; the stars were as bright as city lights were back in New York. It was really very interesting to him; he was a city boy after all and the city was his best element and almost all he ever knew. Even with all the beauty of the cosmos there to keep him occupied, his mind still wandered to old matters.
Old matters that he'd promised his new comrades were forgotten.
New matters that arose because of those very comrades.
He wasn't sure what compelled him to go with them this time. Maybe because he wanted to see the look on Ben's face, maybe because of how nervous it made Max, or maybe because he was just so surprised that she had asked him.

In the room of Kevin and Gwendolyn Levin, you could see Kevin reach out for his wife. When his arm reached out to grab his wife, he didn't feel her. This caused him to open his eyes. All he saw was the blanket.
"Honey?" He called out. He was getting worried. He looked around the room to see the bathroom light on. He walked over to the bathroom to hear rushing water. He lightly knocks on the door.
"Gwen?" He calls. He heard some movement from the inside then the door opened to see Gwen, she turns off the bathroom lights and faces Kevin.
"Yes, love?" Gwen asks. Kevin then wraps his arms around her in an embrace.
"Don't scare me like that, I thought something was wrong." Kevin mummers. Gwen smiles at him. He was so sweet. Gwen stands on the tip of her toes to kiss Kevin on his forehead.

Energy Dampers hummed in a steady monotone, their pitch spiking from the sporadic attempts of mana dispersal. Arcane runes etched onto the floor and each wall shone dimly, their glow fluctuating with each spell countered and contained. Whatever forces these two preventive measures couldnt manage, the morphine drip picked up the slack.
This had been the methods the Plumbers devised to keep the likes of Hex and Charmcaster under control during incarceration. Other beings, criminal aliens adept at manipulating life force, twisting and bending them to serve their own selfish purposes, had also been restrained in this manner.
Never would the Plumbers have anticipated they would be forced to use this on one of their own.
And it hurt to see her like this.
