Pleasant dreams kept Makota company as he slept in the hospital. He dreamt that he was back at the South Pole, with Kupo as a puppy, and him as a young man. It was before anything in his life had gone wrong; he didn't know Konoka yet, he wasn't hurt, his father didn't drink... His eyes opened and he sighed. Staring at the white walls of the hospital. He felt much better than he had the day before on the operating table, but he was still very sore from both his surgery and wounds from the fight. He looked next to him and found a glass of water, then smiled. He bended it around, making it into snakes, dogs, hearts, amusing himself before he drank it. He frowned when he did. His mouth tasted like blood. "Gross..." he muttered. He yawned, then looked around the room to see if Gui or Jingfei was there to keep an eye on him.
He had at least one thing right. Jingfei was there, sitting next to his bed, Kupo's head resting in her lap. When she saw Makota stir, she sat up straight with a smile.

Caleb wasn't sure what to make of the expression on Gabriel's face as he sat there in the chair. Was he confused? Was he annoyed? Was he just thinking about something that he might have forgotten to do? What was with his little brother?
"Gabriel?" the redhead finally remarked questioningly, "Something you'd like to share?"
"Hn." the Angel of World's Ending grunted softly, the odd expression never leaving his face as he continued staring at the television screen. Wren walked in from an adjacent room, a plate of sandwiches in one hand. He paused to look between Gabriel and Caleb a few times before raising an eyebrow.
"Do I want to know?" the chef asked dryly. Caleb just gazed back at him helplessly.
"Right now, I don't know and I want to know!" he replied, throwing his hands up in exasperation.

You were my sober police. You had one job and you failed miserably.
I'm a corrupt cop.
Wren paced back and forth, alternating between yelling in Italian, Ancient Runic, and Modern American English. Gabriel ignored him mostly, sitting in his chair and watching a show about brides picking out wedding dresses.
"One job!! You were supposed to be monitoring us! You were the sober police!" the Wonder Chef finally screamed at him. Gabriel just clicked the volume up a couple times.
"I'm a corrupt cop." the Angel of World's Ending replied bluntly, "I'm not sorry."
"Corrupt?! How the hell were you of all people corrupted?!" Wren exclaimed in incredulous outrage. Gabriel rolled his eyes heavenward thoughtfully and hummed a little.
"Are they drinking again?" Cat asked as she watched Caleb and Wren talk animatedly about the bottles of wine on the table in front of them. Gabriel glanced up from his tablet, scanned them over briefly, then went back to flicking litt

The helicopter couldn't land fast enough. Caleb had just shrieked in mixed grief and fury, diving down to reach the burning rubble that had once been MasaTech Tower and the Divine Beast. Timmy leaned out the helicopter and snapped his fingers, producing a downpour of rain to put out the flames and a shield to protect the helicopter as it descended.
Hovering over the massive piles of debris and rubble, Caleb searched for the other android, calling his name and trying to find the link he'd established with the blonde. Neither gained him any responses. Grief and loneliness began weighing on him, dragging him from the air. It wasn't fair! Sure Caleb had any of a dozen androids that could break through to self-awareness, but he'd never had one achieve enough awareness, reach that miracle tipping point that allowed them to be primed and accept a soul. None of them came close to becoming a living android.
And then Gabriel showed up. Gabriel, who'd stolen his soul and not only held it

I just got attacked by a swarm of butterflies. Nothing is okay anymore.
Caleb lifted an eyebrow from where he sat on his usual bench on the aerie, watching as Gabriel stomped around in circles nearby, fuming and cursing under his breath. The blonde was covered in some odd yellow-white liquid that clung to his duster and arms no matter how much he shook himself off and wiped with his palms.
"What happened to you?" the redhead called out in mild interest. Gabriel had been doing that ever since swooping onto the rooftop of the Archives at near full speed. "You all right?"
"I was just attacked by a swarm of butterflies! What do you think?!" Gabriel snapped back in frustration, shaking his hands to try flinging the liquid coating his gloves off.
"Butterflies? Seriously?" Caleb questioned dryly, then blinked as a massive butterfly in shades of green and gold swooped in from out of nowhere, very obviously alien in appearance, wrapped its arms and legs around the Angel of

The parking lot was badly torn up, asphalt and pavement gouged and vehicles overturned and burning, crumpled and damaged beyond recognition.
On one end, Caleb's Little Heroes stood in varying states of exhaustion, breathing hard and looking fairly battered. Not far from them, Gabriel stood on unsteady legs, arms held up defensively as he glared at the four of them. His clothes were torn and dirty, smudged with mud, oil and grease.
In the distance, the faint pop-pop-pop of gunshots provided background noise to the battle that had come to a mutual cease in oder for both parties to rest for a bit.

Wren clutched Caleb's hand in his own, the two of them dressed in black as they listened to Colette give her sermon. Their gazes were on the black coffin with its faintly emerald sheen that was held suspended over a deep grave. Nearby, Danny and Timmy put their attention on the massive tree near the funeral, its huge branches and sky-blocking canopy stretching over them, shielding the group and the coffin from the rains pouring down. Mike stood at the end, managing an expression that was half somber and half bored without a trace of irony or offensiveness to it.
"...and so we ask the Goddess Martel to forgive all the sins that dwelt within this body and offer it to the earth from which it came. May this beautiful world accept one who so dearly sought to protect it, guide it, nurture it and guard it for the sake of the ones he loved." Colette finished and lifted her hands in supplication to the heavens, "Until we journey on."

Mike sat in the background of things with a cup of punch in his hooves, content with watching how things were going to play out in the land of Equestria today.
Mechalicorn was introducing the little colt Caleb to the six mares and one dragon that had become something of a family to him, though he had a little trouble explaining how someone who was supposed to be grown could become a little pony.

In the evening hours, as the stars began emerging over the light pollution of New York City, Caleb sat at the kitchen table with his friends, gazing down at his hands in his lap as they waited. Wren and Danny sat closest to him, with Timmy and Mike taking up the remaining chairs. There had been a platter of snacks in the center of the table, but it was mostly ignored in favor of hearing what the redhead was going to say.
"I had forgotten about Gabriel, until I saw that news report." Caleb began softly, sadly, "And it all came rushing back. It scared me, so I hid. But that also gave me time to look over my own memories." He lifted his gaze to each of his friends, helpless expression on his face. "You see, I honestly thought Gabriel had been destroyed when I escaped MasaTech." he explained.
"This happened years ago, before the Disaster-oid." Caleb went on and winced at Danny's sharp gasp, "Yeah, back before the events that broke my heart and fractured my soul. I was called out

He opened the oven door at the same time Caleb did and two entirely different results appeared. Gabriel scowled -equal parts annoyed by his brother and disappointed in himself- and glared at the tray Caleb pulled out to set on the table, hands covered with oven mitts.
Perfect muffins, hot and delicious-smelling and golden-brown in color.
Gabriel focused on his own gloves, forming them into similar mitts, and promptly pulled his own tray out to dump carelessly on the table.
Bricks. Might as well be bricks with their shriveled, blackened, rock-hard forms, smelling bitter and burnt like a forest fire. (Gabriel normally liked the smell of fire and flames consuming organic and inorganic materials. Just not when he was trying to not cause fire.)
Caleb's expression looked a bit strained, like he was doing his best to smile encouragingly but had long run out of positive things to say.

By the amount of dust that had accumulated on every visible surface, it was easy to see that the attic had not been touched in years. The thick grey layer flew into whirlwinds as she gingerly stepped across the floor, heading towards the window while trying to disturb as little as possible. After a few minutes of fumbling with the old hinges, she finally threw the squealing shutters open. The late summer sunlight poured in through the old fashioned glass window, making the flying eddies of dust sparkle like pure gold as they drifted in minute air currents. As if placed there for that particular reason, a solid maple rocking chair sat near the far side of the room, exactly where the light hit the floor. With a reminiscent smile, she shook out a worn quilt and draped it over the back o the chair. She glanced out the window for a moment, as if gauging the time, and then she hurried over to a solid red chest. With only a moment's hesitation, s

Spears thumped uncomfortably near my feet, deeply embedded in the ground.

In fact he was so horrible at it that even the teachers were astounded by it. Normally if a person could not use the energy within it meant that they simple did not have enough, but Dailon seemed to be the opposite. His ability to sense the energy in all its forms though was one of the highest, so it was not his control or senses that prohibited him using energy outside his body. Not even the teachers and experts at the Institute could figure out why he was completely unable to use it.Chapter 2: PAGE 7 in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Dailon himself could not figure it out either, despite having studied it for a long time, as he would have loved to be a battle mage, considered to be the highest battle rank.

Truth be told if this had been told to him directly he would probably have never believed it, but like this it was almost impossible not to believe. They could not know that he was eavesdropping on their conversation, so there was no reason to lie.

To Dailon´s surprise it was a teacher he had never seen before in his entire time at the academy. While this should not have been strange as there are over fifty thousand teachers, masters and other staff in the Institute, he and Gaikor had made an intensive study towards the staff. Off course it was possible that they missed a few or simply did not remember them, but there was no way they would have missed this person. From the corners of his eyes he noticed Gaikor sat up a few inches straighter then usual and the tips of his fingers seemed to be a bit tighter pressed together, confirming he felt the same way.Chapter 1: PAGE 8 in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

The reason nobody knows whether it was a coincidence or not, might be even harder to believe than a massive building floating above them. Dailon himself could hardly believe when he was first told by a senior student after he had inquired about it. He introduced himself as Gaikor after helping Dailon back upon his feet, after he knocking him over to demonstrate his prowess with a pole to impress some random girl. Being the son of a Legandar, he had been trained to never accept defeat. So instead Dailon knocked the hand that was being reached towards him away with the back of his hand and jumped forward, planting his shoulder the center of the boys stomach. The older boy was surprised to say the least and he dropped his pole, slowly stumbling a bit backwards trying to catch his breath.Chapter 1: PAGE 2 in Short Stories More Like This

Chapter 2: PAGE 11What happened was actually an astonishingly simple fact and it is hard to believe that nobody thought about that before.

He had never slept on anything better then thin leather blanket spread on top of a stone bed. Even that was already a luxury only bestowed upon those who reached the elite year of the Institute. It almost felt comfortable, though Dailon wondered what kind of filling they used that he would sink in that far. Now was not the time to check it though, so he kept massaging his head as the wooden panel slid upwards.Chapter 2: PAGE 6 in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
`Ah so it was a door after all.` Dailon thought to himself, watching the door entrance closely through a tiny slit in his eyelids, that was too small to notice in the dark room.

Startled by the sudden turn of events Dailon let out a muffled groan as the body of his friends slammed into him and he tried to maintain his balance. It was an impossible task though and together they fell down into the tables behind them. Gaikor still wondered what the hell just happened, though he knew better than to ask Dailon

Humanity needed nearly six decades to recover from the brink of total annihilation. During the wave of destruction almost all technology was lost and nobody knew how to use what was left of it. Without any technology to light a room or heat an oven, the remaining humans were forced to focus all their hopes into this energy within. They used

[Tarot vs. Kenny] Preventative Lesson"Oh KEN~NY!"[Tarot vs. Kenny] Preventative Lesson in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Oh this was going to be good. Tarot was a lot of things, but tolerant of threats he was not. Of course, Kenny MIGHT have been simply teasing when he said 'Hmm, well, lemme tell you a little secret....I live by a very strict code to never, ever eat humans, under any circumstances. However....I do like the occasional monkey every now and then.' Of course, the look had implied that Kenny wasn't talking about any of Tarot's underlings but rather Tarot himself. And naturally, threatening the self-proclaimed Monkey King with being made into a meal didn't sit well with Tarot. In fact, he'd lost some sleep over it. His paranoia was one thing when it came to day to day interactions with folks but Kenny was different. Kenny was one of the few people Tarot was sure could follow through on that threat--and while the roguish Monkey King couldn't deny that Kenny's tummy was more than pleasant to look at on the outside he wasn't sure he wanted to see it from the inside

If it hadn't been made abundantly clear to most everyone in the jungle up to this point, Tarot was not fond of cuddling or hugging of any kind. He also wasn't fond of being hypnotized . Thereofore, the odd combination of the two that made up one of Kenny's favorite pastimes would make most anyone wonder why Tarot stuck around like he did. Even Tarot didn't know why sometimes, though that may have been less to do with him being a glutton for Kenny's cuddles on his own, and more because Kenny had left the desire to be cuddled in Tarot's subconscious like a Seven-Year Itch. Being the Monkey King didn't help since obviously it made his subjects all kinds of suspicious of their ruler; mostly that they were worried he was being slowly led into being made a meal of despite himself. Tarot had assured them multiple times, though, that this was not

Sometimes, he really needed to learn to just keep his yap shut.
"Would it help if I apologized?"
"Come on! I was only teasing! It's not like you don't tease people!" Tarot sighed, twisting his torso back and forth a moment, looking incredibly uncomfortable. Though, of course he was uncomfortable--he was bound from the waist down to his feet in thick, serpent coils that held him fast. It's not like he was in any danger; the coils were tight enough to hold him but not nearly enough to threaten his life. But dammit he hated it all the same.

"Lookit how FAST we're going! You should see this, Gannet!"
The witch's hair, now short again and hidden beneath his bowler hat shifted in equal irritation, the shortly cropped threads fighting to respond to the rest of the body's negative feelings. Gannet took a deep breath and forced himself (and his hair) to relax, trying to listen to the sound of the train instead.

"Can't imagine how. Boa's have heads that are different than pythons--but since you've got a human head I'm pretty sure that you couldn't expect anyone to know that." Tarot seemed largely indifferent that his little joke had fallen flat but still didn't seem to lose any of his steam.

And while it was more or less lost to the anals of history, Tarot had found it.[Transformation] The Djinn Forge in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
The Djinn Forge.
According to the legends, by placing in a series of required offerings to the ancient gods and saying the proper chants at the proper times, one could stand before the alter and the machine would forge together whatever the user asked for, just like a djinn of old. Granted the required offerings was unknown, the time was a mystery and, well--most chalked it up to legends and fairy tales. But it was on such tales that Tarot thrived and so he went about seeking it out all the same.
And he struck the proverbial gold, finally. After some digging and exploring in various temples, he finally found the thing, hidden deep within the deserts just beyond Little Ala-Mhigo
[Growth+Crossover] Payback, Big Time"If you're trying to hide, whoever you are, you're not very good at it."[Growth+Crossover] Payback, Big Time in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Tarot had had the feeling he'd been followed for a while now. It was definitely not something he wasn't used to; you didn't meet as many people (or more importantly piss off) as many people as Tarot did and NOT expect someone to be out for blood. This time didn't feel threatening. If it had been, he would have been attacked by now for sure. He was alone in the jungle, looking for that damn crown that Kenny decided would be HI-LARIOUS to hide somewhere. Of course, being alone like that made it very easy to pick out when he was being followed. He turned around fully and pointed to the tree his would-be stalker was hiding behind. "Come on out, whoever you are. You're not fooling me anyway."
Tarot watched and waited, dissimilar eyes focused on the trunk of the tree for a few seconds before he saw movement. After another moment or two, the figured peeked its head out, revealing a rather...well, interesting person. The

"Mine can too!"
There was a brief pause before Apollo sneered meanly, folding his arms as he looked at his rival. The two boys had been at this for nearly ten minutes now.
"Well, at least my father has both his eyes."
The golden-furred godling received a swift punch in the lip for that and then was tackled to the ground where the other straddled him, eyes burning. Even as a child, Thor was strong and he would not let anyone demean his father's scars, be they ever so glorious. Another swing from his fist to the other boy's face. "You take that back, you--you grape eater!" It had not been a graceful time in the boys' lives. The gods (and subsequently their mortals) had begun to war with one another. While most of the gods, those of the tribes of the North, were content to not physically rain down thei
Coffee, Ginko, Leaves and ScalesIt was a great thing, the Roost being open 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. Honestly, Tarot was probably more proud of having this place built than anything else in the whole of his township. It had been a whirlwind of nonsense from start to finish, beginning with the train ride here--and then being declared Mayor completely out of the blue--but he'd adjusted as he always had.Coffee, Ginko, Leaves and Scales in Drama More Like This
Of course the whole reason he'd come out here in the first place to this little backwater town was because of Redd, who had been telling him how badly his presence was needed out here and how much everyone would benefit and that 'You really would like it out here, cousin. Believe ol' Redd. Have I ever steered you wrong?'
Of course he hadn't, because Tarot knew better than to let 'Crazy' Redd steer him any which way. That didn't keep him from coming out to the village and getting himself caught up in the political power struggle (or lack thereof) for the position of Mayor.
But back to the Roost, the coffee place tha
