Morning found DM on the bridge, looking over the aft parts of the ship, the passengers lounging poolside, the gaming tables starting early, along with the more sporting individuals catching a first round of tennis or jogging. Just a deck or two below them a major commando raid was setting into motion, planes and helicopters being serviced, dragons and humans checking and organizing weapons. Just a faint smile on his muzzle was the only hint of it all.
As the last of the breakfast patrons moved through the dining area, mixed with them were the planners getting breakfast as well, before returning to satellite photos, images from the air recon and even the results of operatives and agents now on the scene, such as Bryce (Drakko) Brighthorn and Chill’.

Peering through the leaves from the tropic forest, a minicam mounted on Bryce’s visor notes the camp where the group of famil

"Just making my rounds" he said as he looked over my chart on his tablet PC then checked the instruments with a glance, next he felt and prodded my knees, nodding in approval while asking me for the indications of pain as he slowly flexed each, mumbling the word "remarkable" as he moved it to 45 degrees bend before I said "pain".
"In a regular replacement with ceramic and metals types, half that much movement would have you howling the word 'malpractice!' if not passing out altogether, Russ" he said.
Continuing, he next looked at my finger webs, skin patches and asked for a look at my tongue.
"Well, we are both about at the same level of change now, so we will have to see how far th

Symphonia landed on American shores. They were his favorite set of RPGs. Hell, they were his favorite games period.
Five months ago, David had read on the Tales of Wiki that a new Tales of game was just released in Japan and would be set to hit stores August 19th. David would markdown each day that passed on his calender until the big day had come. David walked through the mall with a big grin on his face. The kind of grin you'd expect from a little kid. David, in his own right, was like a kid about to get the coolest toy ever. He walked into Gamestop and walked over to the shelf with Wii games stacked. The games were in alphabetical order so it wouldn't be too hard to find. After a few seconds of looking, David came across a game. He picked up the game, titled Tales of the Dragon.

Jason was dressed like a half-dragon. His parents had always told him that many fans of comics like Iron Man and Batman who went there. As much as he loved superheroes, Jason loved dragons more. He had always enjoyed dragon type movies, no matter how cheesy.
Jason's costume was a pair of homemade wings that barely stuck out of his shirt and a tail his mom sowed for him. Jason looked around, excited. Jason noticed many people dressed up as his favorite fictional characters. He noticed a girl dressed up like Naruto. Another was a storm trooper.
"Mommy, why are these people wearing costumes?" Jason asked.

On to Part 2.
Around me there was nothing but darkness. Endless darkness. I was unable to move. I couldn't move any part of my body. I didn't like this place. It was too cramped. Just then, a crack came through the darkness. Bringing with it a thin ray of light. It felt strange. It was almost like I was...hatching.
I awoke with a startle, jolting my now draconic head up. I wondered why I'd have a dream like that. It wasn't like I was born a dragon. Even if I DID have a dragon's form now.
I extended my front legs out and jumped off the guest room's bed. I walked out of the room and into my brother's computer room. I knew he didn't like me using h

Tommy's story technically began a month ago. After coming home from school, Tommy's parents noticed something odd about their son: Even though he was sick, it was only his arm that had an off color to it. As days passed, Tommy didn't get any better. In fact, his condition was actually getting worse. His parents took him to his doctor, whom confirmed that he had obtained a disease called "The Dragon Virus". As a recently discovered disease, the Dragon Virus had no known cure. In fact, Tommy was one of the first people who had accuired the disease. Since there was no cure, Tommy's parents knew it was only a matter of time before the Tommy they knew was gone.
Tommy sat in the lobby at the doctor's office. He scratched at his right hand, which was covered by a glove, as was his left hand. The reason for t
Dragon TF“Oh, you have got to be kidding!” Drake groaned as his flashlight burned out and lost its shine.Dragon TF in Short Stories More Like This
The cave tunnel he was traveling in now seemed darker than before, with every crevice and wedge of stone casting shadows everywhere. Cool water dripped from the hanging stalagmites on the rounded ceiling, and the thick scent of mildew was strong in the air. Drake squinted at the yellowed paper map that was supposedly written with directions to a special treasure hidden within the cave. As he was about to start rereading it, a crashing sound was heard, along with the noise of nails clicking on the smooth stone ground. Drake panicked, and stuffed the extra batteries into the flashlight. He clicked it back on and shone the path in front of him.
There, peering from a corner, was a small, reptile-like, moss-covered creature with reptilian green and blue scales peeking from the scum it was coated in. It was quadruped, with giant curved claws on each toe on its four feet. A long

"Neptune has judged you, and he has deemed you worthy of the gift..." Nalu said.
"Okay? So what exactly is, the gift?" Kat asked. Nalu swam right up to Kat and closed his eyes... Then, slowly rising up from his fish-like scales were two long tendrils that had been lying so tightly on his neck that Kat didn't even see them before. They had strange fins at the ends of them and Nalu began bringing them close to Kat's snout. She swam back a bit.
"Don't be afraid, the gift does not hurt..." Nalu said. Kat felt something inside her saying not to go closer... She shook off the feeling and moved back in. Nalu brought his tendrils closer and closer to her face until they suddenly latched onto her entire snout! She started to panic and struggle, so Nalu wrapped his long lower body around her. "It's okay, it's okay! This is the only way Neptune can pass the gift to you! Don't panic." Nalu said, trying to calm her. K

As Nikos awoke he was surprised to see that he was lying in a small oasis and that his wounds had been treated. Even his broken rib felt repaired? Who had rescued and healing him...? His question was soon answered as a female voice called from behind him.
"You're awake." It said. The voice was soft and comforting, yet unfamiliar? He had never heard it before. Nikos turned to look and was a bit surprised by whom he saw. The dragoness approaching him was none other than Nokata. Why would Nokata have saved his life? He had made a threat against her to Furoes and that's what set the Pandoran Clans against him in the first place. Nokata approached him and held out some kind of medicinal mixture. She lifted his bandages and applied it very gently to his wounds. He groaned as the medicine came in contact with the wound. But Nokata kept applying it. When she was finished she simply got up and washed her paws off in the small pool of water in the oasis.
