Rayquaza ReportRayquaza (the Sky High Pokémon) is a legendary Dragon/Flying-type Pokémon known to exist within the upper reaches of the atmosphere far from human sight. Though it may only appear to the world in times of great disaster, Rayquaza is a fearsome beast more than deserving of respect not only for its immense power but for its vital role in keeping human civilization safe from the forces of calamity in the natural world. There may be little known about the origins of its amazing powers and abilities, but with dominion over both the sea and the land, it goes without saying that there are few things capable of standing equally with Rayquaza on the battlefield, especially when the full might of Mega Evolution is on its side!Rayquaza Report in Profiles More Like This
In the beginning, the oceans and the earth are said to have battled constantly for dominance. At this time, the world overflowed with natural energy, and the forces of nature themselves were represented by two monstrous deities. Early humans came to call the beas
Swampert ReportSwampert (the Mud Fish Pokémon) is an exceptionally rare Water/Ground-type Pokémon found among beaches and other landforms close to the ocean within the Hoenn region. With water-tight skin that can bake in the hot sun for hours on end and the physical strength needed to crush almost any opposition, Swampert are dangerous fighters that can bring equally impressive assaults of Water and Ground-type moves in a flash. If you think that a simple Grass-type assault is going to do you much good against them, think again; they might not be able to take the force of nature very well, but with something as strong as they are in battle, the chances of getting flattened by their Hammer Arm attack are too much to handle!Swampert Report in Profiles More Like This
Swampert are unique among their family in that they combine and enhance the best of their previous evolutions together; while they possess the strong footing and strength of Marshtomp, they also possess the great swimming abilities of Mudkip and can thus attack perfectly
Crobat ReportCrobat (the Bat Pokémon) is a rare Poison/Flying-type Pokémon found among dark caverns within the Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh and Kalos regions as well as parts of the Sevii Islands and the Unova region on rare occasions. Silent as the night itself and wickedly fast in the air, Crobat are highly-maneuverable beasts that can easily outwit and outrun lesser opponents in battle without even trying. They might not be able to provide much more than a slightly above-average offensive or defensive game in battle, but when it comes to running circles around the opposition, no Poison-type can ever come close to what these freakish bats are capable of!Crobat Report in Profiles More Like This
The members of the Zubat family share a great deal in common with traditional bats, in particular vampire bats. While they might occasionally feed on small insects and even rodents in the case of Golbat, these creatures derive much of their nutrition from the energy of others and specialize in being able to punch through skin of many typ
Camerupt ReportCamerupt (the Eruption Pokémon) is a relatively rare Fire/Ground-type Pokémon found among volcanic environments within the Hoenn, Sinnoh and Unova regions as well as the Kanto and Johto regions on rare occasions. Extremely temperamental and dangerous to simply be around, Camerupt are somewhat dull-witted creatures that more than make up for their lack of intellect with seething magma that melts nearly anything it touches. You would be well-advised to keep these creatures as happy as possible at all times; they might not be able to solve a calculus equation to save their lives, but these beasts will show no mercy once their anger hits the boiling point!Camerupt Report in Profiles More Like This
Unlike Numel, who merely use their magma-filled humps as a source of heat and metabolic functions, Camerupt are specifically designed to be able to use the massive quantities of magma within them as a weapon of aggression. Upon evolving from Numel, the bone structure of these creatures changes drastically and grows to form two
Aggron ReportAggron (the Iron Armor Pokémon) is a rare Steel/Rock-type Pokémon found among dark caverns within the Hoenn, Unova and Kalos regions as well as the Sinnoh region on rare occasions. Extremely powerful and armored to the extreme, Aggron are devastating juggernauts capable of smashing through the thickest of defenses with their imposing physical strength while still being able to take more than a few blows themselves. If you know what's good for you, you'll stick to special attacks only when facing these beasts in battle; otherwise, you may find yourself getting squashed by a Heavy Slam guaranteed to reduce you to a creamy puddle!Aggron Report in Profiles More Like This
As with Lairon, Aggron are extremely territorial and will not stand for having intruders in their home; this probably wouldn't be so much of an issue if Aggron didn't also have a penchant for claiming entire mountains as their territory. This is not done merely for show, however, as Aggron spend serious amount of time patrolling their territory and wil
Metagross ReportMetagross (the Iron Leg Pokémon) is an exceptionally rare Steel/Psychic-type Pokémon found among mountainous terrain and forested areas within the Hoenn and Unova regions as well as the Sinnoh region on rare occasions. Immensely powerful and utterly devastating on the battlefield, Metagross are physical nightmares capable of reducing most other opponents to dust with their tremendous power and monstrous Meteor Mash attack. If you're unlucky enough to have to fight one of these beasts, make sure that you bring the best special attacks you can muster; if you try to attack with any sort of physical attacks, the only thing you'll get for your efforts is a star-studded punch guaranteed to sending you flying to the stars!Metagross Report in Profiles More Like This
Much as Metang are made from two Beldum, Metagross are made when either a single Metang obtains enough energy to replicate itself and fuse the copies or when two Metang manually fuse together. This grants Metagross a total of four individual brains linked together
Mightyena ReportMightyena (the Bite Pokémon) is an uncommon Dark-type Pokémon found among grassy fields and forests within the Hoenn and Kalos regions as well as the Kanto, Sinnoh and Unova regions on rare occasions. While they might not be among the most powerful of Dark-type Pokémon, Mightyena are vicious beasts that will gladly rip apart opponents in close-quarters just for the chance to fight. They may be rather predictable in battle, but as long as you can mix up their tactics a bit, you shouldn't have much trouble turning these otherwise mediocre canines into dangerous beasts worth fearing!Mightyena Report in Profiles More Like This
Upon evolving from Poochyena, Mightyena acquire a chemical imbalance within their brains that causes them to lose all traces of fear that plagued them as Poochyena, in turn making them savage beasts that only brute force can tame in battle. However, Mightyena are not exceptionally intelligent and their viciousness is their only truly dangerous trait aside from their moderately-high physical str
Mawile ReportMawile (the Deceiver Pokémon) is a relatively rare Steel/Fairy-type Pokémon found among dark caverns within the Hoenn, Unova and Kalos regions as well as the Kanto and Sinnoh regions on rare occasions. Adored and despised alike for their deceptive ways and vicious overbite, Mawile are seemingly defenseless creatures that hold a nasty surprise for anyone foolish enough to get close to them. They might seem innocent enough at first, but getting near them and the horns on their head is a very bad idea in every sense, particularly if you want to continue keeping your limbs in one piece!Mawile Report in Profiles More Like This
In terms of their own physical abilities, Mawile are incredibly weak despite the fact that their bodies are coated in a permanent layer of organically-grown steel, which is designed as their primary means of defense; as a result, their population numbers are less than healthy and have been effectively limited to dark caverns where predators are less common. Even so, Mawile have learned to make up
Goodra ReportGoodra (the Dragon Pokemon) is an exceptionally rare Dragon-type Pokemon found among swamps and marshes within the Kalos region. While they might not exhibit the most traditional of Dragon-type powers, Goodra are surprisingly powerful creatures that can more than make themselves a dangerous force in battle. Granted, they might not be able to hit as hard as some other pseudo-legendary Pokemon, but when it comes to absorbing special damage, few beasts can top what these monster slugs are capable of!Goodra Report in Profiles More Like This
The members of the Goomy family represent a rare case of de-evolution within Dragon-type families and in fact represent the only case of a Dragon-type family losing most of its powers through climate change. Much as with Magikarp, it is believed that these creatures were once fairly powerful and were widely feared by all Pokemon in general; the main problem was that their populations were restricted somewhat because they are actually slugs in terms of anatomy and therefore r
Aurorus ReportAurorus (the Tundra Pokemon) is an exceptionally rare Rock/Ice-type Pokemon found among cold, forested region across the world, though only in exceptionally limited numbers. Peaceful at heart but devastating in power, Aurorus are imposing beasts that can easily put their opponents on ice in a moment’s notice. It might take a little goading for them to take full advantage of their powers, but don’t underestimate them otherwise; they might be big, but they certainly won’t be an equally-big target once they’ve completely surrounded themselves in ice!Aurorus Report in Profiles More Like This
The members of the Amaura family are only alive today thanks to the modern miracle of fossil-restoring technology, but among all those that have been resurrected, none quite demonstrate the calm dispositions and peaceful natures of these beasts. These monsters are believed to be closely related to Amargasaurus sp. and share many of their purposed anatomical features, though in all reality they are far

Chapter 1: Turn The Page
Celestia's sun was shining down on Ponyville, giving a warm afternoon feel for the residents. While most of the ponyfolk were relaxed, there was one light blue pegasus who was racing towards her destination. It was Rainbow Dash, whose multi-colored mane was a blur to anypony who saw her. Finally landing in front of the Ponyville library, she checked the saddlebag on her back, double-checking to make sure it had not fallen off mid-flight, which it had a tendency to do. After her examination, she knocked on the door.
"Just a second!" a muffled voice from inside called out.
"No rush," Rainbow Dash replied to the voice. While she wasn't in a hurry, almost everything in her life was some sort of race or competition. It's how she was.
After what felt like eternity to the blue mare, the door was opened. Expecting to see her purple unicorn friend, Dash saw a small purple and green dragon.

Celestia's sun was just beginning the go down in the east after another day of work at Sweet Apple Acres. Applejack was slightly troubled with her work during the day.

Chapter 5: You
Celestia's sun shined down upon Ponyville. It was a warm and pleasant day for all the ponies that were out and about. One blue pegasus, however, was a bit uneasy as she flew towards the library. Rainbow Dash, who convinced herself the night before to follow her friend's advice about being forward with her feelings, was in a panicky state. She couldn't help but feel nervous. Dash never had to tell anypony how she felt about them, and most of the time she didn't feel a need to. But now, she was given the task to tell Spike how she felt about him.
'Coming on, Rainbow Dash! You can do this. I mean, its just Spike, right? What's the worst that can happen? He's a little shrimp and it's no big deal if he finds it weird, right?' the pegasus repeatedly tried to calm herself, but to no avail.

After completing the applebucking, Applejack and Spike were lying down on the grass. The orange mare and purple dragon were close as they looked up to the partly cloudy sky. A gently breeze was slowly pushing the clouds across the blue atmosphere, causing the two to point out the shapes.
"Hey Applejack, that one looks like a top hat!" Spike pointed up to the sky.
"Yer right, it kinda does. That one there looks like some kinda animal, like a rodent or somethin'," Applejack pointed to a different cloud.
Spike had trouble seeing what the pony saw, "I guess it kinda does. Maybe if it's super fat or something like that!" he then laughed at his own comment.
Applejack couldn't help but smile, "There's a few there that look like a bunch of apples."

The white unicorn froze at Spike's question. Her mind was trying to form an answer as quickly as possible, but nothing was coming to her. Tripping over her words, Rarity mumbled something that was almost impossible to understand.
"What was that?" Spike asked, tilting his head to the side.
"Well," Rarity started, "I .uh .well ." The unicorn looked at the purple dragon, whose eyes gave a hopeful look to her, "I .honestly don't know, dear."
Spike raised an eyebrow, "Huh?"

Opening her tired eyes, Rarity stretched out her limbs and stood on the wooden floors. Her purple mane was not styled as it normally would be, as she had just woke up. Normally, she would be quick to attend to her mane as soon as she got up, yet something was peculiar. Rarity felt melancholic.
Slowly trotting to her bathroom, she looked at herself in the mirror as she drew closer. Looking at her reflection, she sighed loudly as a magically levitating brush to attend to her mane.

Saturday morning arrived and Ponyville was lively and active as Celestia's sun rose over the land. Many ponies were hard at work to prep for the busy day. There were a number of ponies setting up different booths for activities for anypony who wished to try their luck at winning various prizes. There were other ponies that were cooking various tasty treats, which led to the air being filled with the air of the aroma of the food.
At the Carousel Boutique, Rarity was prepping herself for the day. Using her magic, she placed all of the costumes that she and Spike had made into a truck neatly.

Karkat Vantas was definitely 'broken'. He was in some cases- if not all- a lost cause. A soul condemned to wander the earth with no purpose other than to make everyone else around it miserable. It wasn't too hard of a job, really. It didn't get too old if you had a mind ingenious enough to come up with high-quality insults. And boy did he have one.

That was fine, though, because Karkat and Gamzee had an unspoken agreement: Karkat would make sure Gamzee didn't twist an ankle as they walked home from school to their apartment that they shared, and Gamzee would talk enough for the both of them, making the whole conversation himself so that Karkat didn't need to say a word.Karkles, you're my Kitten in Short Stories More Like This

Rain poured mercilessly in the deafening wind while three young foals slept inside the small chicken coop. The storm's might was ferocious, its malice unforgiving as even the rising sun itself seemed to hide out of fear of the great power of nature and shone only scarcely through the dismal blanket of the intimidating clouds. The heavy gales rattled the miniature house violently while the great boom of thunder shook the sleeping children to the bone. Inside their rickety shelter, Orion and Bucky slept side-by-side, huddled together to keep warm, their crusader capes shielding them from the cold. Their minds were blank, deep within the sleep they needed so badly. Time travel seemed to affect the very life force of all three of the Crusaders as they each found themselves too exhausted to even notice the rampage of the storm. None of them slept in peace but all remained unconscious. Out

CHAPTER 1: Andromeda's discovery
Scattered pages and dusty old books filled the study in a cluttered mess as Andromeda Sparkle slept among the debris of her own handiwork. Unconscious after a long night of work, her mind only left dreamland when the amber beams of the rising sun shone on her face. With a groan, she slowly rose to her feet, heavy eyelids still drooping. Various loose documents clung to her face as she stood, unnoticed by her until their delicate forms slipped from her lavender cheeks and fluttered towards the blanket of weathered volumes that lay on the floor around her. Once the blur of sleep had finally faded, she turned to see the silhouette of her mom standing against the wall across the room, following a disarrayed chain of manuscripts as if casually searching for survivors.
Twilight Sparkle hadn’t turned the corner yet, but once she did, the purple mare wouldn’t be able to recognize the room. Andromeda’s expression burned from embarrassm

The forest grew eerily silent as Berry stood before Twilight and her friends, equally as appalled by his blunder as she was. The light forest breeze blew his magenta locks into his eyes, but his sight remained fixated on the sight of his young mother. Though he tried to say something, anything, his mouth felt drier than a desert. Instead, all he could do was stand there. After ten excruciatingly long seconds of nothing, Rarity cleared her throat to speak.
“Who is this stallion?” she asked Pinkie Pie, whose unmoving head was tilted slightly. “Do you know him?”
“No,” Pinkie said in a delayed manner. “I’ve never seen him in my life. I never forget a face.”
“That face,” Applejack said, “looks just like you!”

Andromeda and Radiance sat by Applejack’s bedroom door, waiting for any sign of good news. From the outside, only faint murmurs and the occasional shuffling of hooves could be heard. Even though they desperately wanted to see how their friend Cherry was doing, they dared not enter without permission. Berry and Pinkie Pie were far too distraught to deal with anyone else at the moment. Flora kept busy by assisting Zecora with Cherry while Applejack and Fluttershy kept look after the children in the barn. Rarity had been sent out to buy more ingredients needed for the medicine and now only Andromeda and Radiance remained by the door, occasionally checked on by Bismarck and Tempest.

The branch and leaf-covered ground crackled lightly with each step Radiance took. Even though she was still within Ponyville’s limits, she could feel a chill run down her spine. She never liked walking through the forest at night as a filly and the feeling hadn’t changed now, but she wasn’t doing this to take a moonlit stroll. Something more important drove her and that something could be seen standing at the balcony of the old clubhouse.
“You do realize that I’m not a fan of late-night walks through creepy woods, right?” she said, walking up the ramp to the top.
“Ah know,” Bismarck said, returning inside, “and ah’m sorry fer that. We needed somewhere private to talk and it was either this or Everfree.”

The morning sun blinded Rainbow Dash’s eyes as she wearily approached Twilight Sparkle’s house. Throughout the previous night and most of the morning, she had searched high and low for Tempest’s body, but to no avail. The last moment she saw him, he had fallen from the sky as if stricken by an invisible bolt of lightning. At his speed, the chance of him surviving was slim, leaving her, the instigator and indirect cause of his demise, alone to regret ever challenging him to that foolish race.Her eyes were dark from lack of sleep and her hair was in tangles as she knocked on Twilight’s door.
“Talk to me, Twilight,” she whispered solemnly. “Please. I need advice.”
A minute passed, but there was no answer. Looking up, she could see that all the lights in the house were on. Perhaps Twilight did not hear her. She knocked again. Moments passed, but there was still no response.

The blue pegasus’ walking pattern seemed a bit more wobbly than usual, but he refused help and continued to trek beside her.

While all of Applejack’s guests began to sit down at the dinner table, Andromeda’s attention stayed with Tempest. Ever since Rainbow Dash had arrived, he had not focused on anything or anypony else but her. His jaw was clenched and his eyes seethed with hidden anger. He was not making any effort to hide these expressions. Seeing his emotional crisis, Andromeda took hold of his hoof. After a moment, Tempest’s gaze finally tore away from his mother and towards the warm grip that interrupted him.
“It’s alright, Tempest,” Andromeda said, almost in a whisper.
Tempest glanced back at Rainbow Dash and gave Andi’s hoof a light squeeze. He did not say anything, though words weren’t needed. Andromeda led him to the table and sat him down, taking the seat beside him.

A strange feeling came across Andromeda as she stood among the past versions of her friends’ parents. Though she was present in the large, spread-out family reunion, something felt different than usual. Walking around, she saw each mother meet her children from the future. Seeing Pinkie Pie “reunite” with her twin daughter was the first highlight as the crazy pink mares bounced around excitedly.
“I’m so happy I can’t even take it!” Pinkie giggled with glee. “My kids are amazing!!!”
Others reacted differently. As Radiance approached her own mother, Andromeda could see Rarity laughing. The unicorn fashionista was never a stick in the mud kind of pony, but Andromeda had to admit that it had been a while since she saw her so thrilled. The way she approached her daughter was like seeing an old friend after years away from home. There was a sense of a nostalgic bond to it.

It was strange to think that the now quiet abandoned subway used to be filled with chatter and noise. Now, the chatter had died down over the years and it had become oddly quiet. It hadn't been like that since Splinter's sons were only toddlers who couldn't speak just yet. And when they did grow to talk, quiet often meant trouble.
As Splinter listened to the silence surrounding him, the old rat couldn't help but sigh. It was a reminder that times had changed and that his sons were no longer children.
The ninja master finished sweeping up the dust on the floor of the dojo and sighed. His oldest son, Leonardo, had finally won that Foot Clan girl over. Karai, was it?

It was like that almost every night, where either Donatello or April found themselves wandering into their daughter's room. The other would follow not long after, and they would gaze upon the small creature with a look of awe and wonder.

Raphael walked down the hall and entered a room with a white door. He was met with a room created by pastel yellow walls and a large circular carpet on the floor. His eyes naturally went to the small bed in the farthest corner of the room where a petite figure was sitting up.

"Oh hello!" you heard a voice of a woman.
"Hello... Who are you?" you asked.
"I am a friend of your brother." the woman said.
She was wearing a long red dress. Her hair was put up in a bun while she left her bangs hang down on her forehead.

It didn't take long until Matthieu and Allen left which leaves you and Blackie home alone.
You were scared because of what happened last night so you stayed in the two safest rooms, Allen's and Oliver's room. Allen's room has plenty of weapons exposed to which you had full excess to his guns. As for Oliver's room, it helps you calm down since everything in his room is themed blue and pink. And there was alot of hiding spots, especially the closet.
Fives minutes later, you heard the doorbell ring. You remembered Oliver telling you not to open the door but your curiosity made you walk down and stand infront of the door.
"W-Who's there?" you asked.
"The mailman~" a familiar voice said.
You froze. It was the same voice from last night. You immediately ran upstairs to get one of Allen's pistol and hid in Oliver's

Oliver, Francois and Matthew went out for business so that means you're at home with Allen.
You started recording as you walk closer to his room. When you reached hi room, you opened the door slightly and peeked inside.

"Hello [y/n]. Do you remember me?" the tall man asked.
You didn't answer.

That's scary for me to write. But its the truth. Just this morning, I walked down my hallway, going about in a short shuffle through the dark when the flashing lights of a car passing by lit up part of the kitchen. In the faint glow, I saw him by the door, tucked in the corner and bending slightly from his immense height. I fell back, gasping in my stumble as I slid against the wall. I felt true terror for one moment, before reaching out, as if to touch what my imagination brought to life. But he was not there, at least not anymore.

I know you expect me to be vigilant when playing with you, the games are fun. Though, I do get tired of CoD after a few hours. It's just, I was here, then I felt myself slipping. Like, my feet lost contact with the ground and I just started to fall back into this darkness.
There was no fear, no moment of horror, just this airy relaxing free-fall. Then, I went under. The darkness was water, actual water. I could see the rippling waves of blue above me, a few air bubbles floating up and up to the surface. It was slightly cold, but cooling, as if I had a fever or something. I don't know how long I was there, or why I didn't need to breathe, so I guess it wasn't long before I saw him.

The hazy afternoon sunlight streamed across the blood soaked battle grounds, a few limbs and bodies scattered about in painful and nasty positions. Just from where he watched, it looked rather gruesome to Acelin, staying low in the waters for safety. He didn’t like the smell and decided to stay as far away as he could.
Slipping to the other side shore, he crawled partially out, feeling the warm baked sand and rock beneath his skin. He liked it, since it didn’t burn and felt good. Letting his extra limbs slid up out of the water for a quick sun tanning, he relaxed back, sighing softly before closing his eyes.
“AAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!” Acelin screamed loudly, before slamming his hand over his mouth. Too much noise would attract too much attention. But what the hell bit him!? It hurt like a mother!

It started out by accident of course; this "pillowing arrangement." They'd been on a particularly brutal case for over a week; a string of child murders made to look like suicides. The killers knew what they were doing and were painstakingly thorough in covering their tracks. Even managed to feed them a few false leads. Not thorough enough to trump Sherlock though.
