DotD - Buck n' Lindsay 2Stupid weasel, he wouldnt even say good-bye, she thought. She rolled her eyes when her hand slipped off another gigantic leaf, showing a clear passage through the Jungle of Misery. She stayed in the middle of the path like always, admiring the Venus flytraps at both sides which followed her as she strolled.DotD - Buck n' Lindsay 2 in Fan Fiction More Like This
A few minutes passed, and then she noticed a ripe red fruit hanging from a small branch at the top of a mossy green hill. At first she thought it was a bad idea, but the sunlight was shining through some leaves above onto it which gave it a majestic feeling, so she changed her mind and slowly made her way to it.
She hesitated to pluck it, looking in all directions, but when it was all clear she carefully reached out and grabbed it. Her eyes were at her sides and feet, so when the vines came up to grab her ankles, she jumped. A few more came out of nowhere and snapped at her, but all missed as she dodged, thanking her last few years for making herself more flexible. One
DotD - Buck n' Lindsay 10Lindsay dont move!! He shouted. The moment she looked at him, the dinosaur figure moved, revealing two massive red and yellow eyes which locked onto her when she was looking away from it. A low growl erupted from its throat and a sudden gust of wind hit the small weasel when it huffed, making her freeze in fear. It was right then that she understood why her friend had sounded so frantic and forced herself to see what was behind her once she saw the ghost-white dinosaur staring at her, she lost her breath and her green eyes shrank, losing their color immediately. She couldnt move no matter how badly she wanted to.DotD - Buck n' Lindsay 10 in Fan Fiction More Like This
Oh no...Rudy, she thought barely over her heartbeat. The beast roared at her after spotting its scale flicker around her neck, making her flinch, but suddenly she felt a pair of arms wrap around her waist and pull her off to the right. She was stopped by a tree hitting her back and saw Buck holding her down with his knife in his mou
DotD - Buck n' Lindsay 6The wind was mild as lava crashed below taking rock chunks down with the currents and stared the cliffs down from the other side. Buck stood like a statue, holding his knife in one hand while his narrowed eye kept watch over the falls. He had a long vine wrapped over his shoulder, just like when hed flown before, and continued waiting for another minute. His ear cocked back once he heard someone coming from behind, so he turned his head to see who it was.DotD - Buck n' Lindsay 6 in Fan Fiction More Like This
There you are, he began, smiling at the female, I was beginning to wonder about you! He spun the rest of himself around and tossed the dino tooth into the ground. Lindsay shook her head at him, pushing his shoulder when he was close enough, and returned his smile.
I just got slowed by a giant snapping turtle halfway up here, she replied, cracking her neck, but Im alright. He wasnt too nasty for me to handle. Buck looked over the edge of the cliff, staring down at a laye
DotD - Buck n' Lindsay 9He gently put her on the ground, resting on his knees, and pressed his hands over her chest. He pushed down a few times and then held her head back while he listened for a heartbeat. She had one, but she still wasnt breathing, so he had no choice but to give her oxygen himself.DotD - Buck n' Lindsay 9 in Fan Fiction More Like This
I already lost one girl Ill not lose another! he muttered loudly, narrowing his eyes. Buck closed his eye and leaned forward keeping his lips over the females while he gave up his own air for her. After a few times, he lifted up and felt for a pulse, just to be sure she still had one. Then he continued getting air into her lungs, determined not to let her go. Just as he was about to proceed with it once more, he heard her cough before breathing on her own. He smiled little by little when she opened her eyes and looked at him; theyd both done the same in earlier near-death episodes.
Buck, why do I taste peppermint and strawberries right now? She asked, liftin
DotD - Buck n' Lindsay 12Buck, dont, I wont let you risk your life not even for me! she told him. The one-eyed weasel glanced back and shoved her away just in time when the large white tail swung over his head. He knew the dinosaur was aiming for him, but there wasnt a chance that hed let him get to the female.DotD - Buck n' Lindsay 12 in Fan Fiction More Like This
Linz, trust me on this one! Ge -outta here! he watched her disappear into the underbrush of the jungle before swiveling around so his eye was on Rudy again. Then he maneuvered through the dirt, dodging the dinosaurs feet and tail swinging around until he was able to reach the other side. There he grabbed a vine and pulled it all the way to the other side, still missing every swing at him.
Buck had his fun taking each chance he got to wrap something more around Rudys feet, and then once he was secure there, the small weasel brought another long vine up to the beasts snout, tying it up crocodile-style so he couldnt open his mou

She stirred and then her eyes opened. At first she could only see moving colors, but her vision quickly returned and she could breathe deeply through her nose on instinct. After a few seconds letting everything come back to her, the girl realized that her head was free-falling and so were her feet while two hands tightly held her sides under her arms and knees.
She turned her head to see who was holding her and was almost confused when she saw Buck smiling at her. His mouth curved to the side, letting his bottom canine teeth stick up, but his unpatched eye seemed gentle and lively when she focused on it. In return, her green eyes lit up as he carried her somewhere inside a small hidden place covered by vines and plants as a ceiling. When he put her down, she found herself on a cluster of sharp-cornered oval leaves the common type that was large and a healthy green, making them soft.
Lindsay cracked her back as well as she could, but she had little
DotD - Buck n' Lindsay 5About a week passed before Lindsay caught sight of Buck again, and shed been enjoying herself for the most part the only surprising thing was that she had worried about him for a few days. Not only that, but her only thoughts had been about knowing more about him during those days, and how he was handling himself. But for now, she watched the sky turn darker as dust approached and entered her homeland. She tapped the dinosaur scale around her neck, looking back only once to be sure nothing followed her inside the large carved out tree.DotD - Buck n' Lindsay 5 in Fan Fiction More Like This
Been a while.
Lindsay gasped, jumping back a step when she heard that, and saw Buck hanging upside down in front of her when she turned back to her home. He had a smile like always, simply hanging around while she tried to gather herself. Then he jumped down, landing on his hands and feet as if he was ready to pounce on her, but he merely stood up and held his fists against his sides. Finally Lindsay frowned and crossed her arms
DotD - Buck n' Lindsay 4By the time night hung over the land, Lindsay had returned to her own domain. Shed honestly wanted to get away from the psychotic weasel in hopes that it would be the last time their paths crossed, but just the next day, they met once more. It was early morning with her picking up the largest blueberries on a bush by her territory entrance, liking how it was tall enough to block out the sunlight until noon. She reached out towards the top of it, snagging a very dark berry that seemed to be too heavy for the branch it was on, and smiled as she tossed it into a leaf-sling around her shoulder.DotD - Buck n' Lindsay 4 in Fan Fiction More Like This
It was about half full by now since shed started picking them minutes ago, but her hedge was plentiful, so she could fill it entirely if she chose to. When she picked one particular blueberry in the middle of the hedge, she felt a hand atop her own and stopped to see who was on the other side. To her disliking, it was Buck, just as confused as her picking the same berry. Her expression s
DotD - Buck n' Lindsay 7I feel like I should have something to commemorate my first near-death experience, you know? Lindsay thought aloud. She and Buck were just coming out of the Jungle of Misery when she started thinking about it, so she began looking at her sides for anything serving a good reminder. All she saw were trees holding leaves and Venus flytraps that had eyes following her. Buck leaned down to pick something up when she wasnt looking and held it behind his back, smiling, when she noticed him hiding it.DotD - Buck n' Lindsay 7 in Fan Fiction More Like This
Whatve you got there? She asked, trying to look behind him. No matter how she turned, he managed to keep it from her that was until her face was close enough to his own. At that moment, he held up a lovely blue flower by the two long stems between their noses, making her set her sights on it and back up. One of her ears dropped while the other rose and she took it from him when he nodded.
...A blue flower?

It was just like any other day, really; the little fifth graders we've become accustomed to, know as Fanboy, his best friend (appropriately named might it be stated) Chum Chum, and Kyle their preteen wizard friend were all engaged in an activity according to their morning antics. The three arrived on the school grounds of their quaint town at separate times like always, Kyle was early with his Scrivener Elf taking notes for him.
"Complaints again," he said as he turned away. His elf pulled out a much larger notepad from behind his back and readied his pencil for the kid to start speaking.
"To the staff behind the cafeteria counter; Dear sirs," he began, facing his personal elf once more, "and madams, it has come to my attention that the budget cuts have affected the quality of the school lunches."

The wicked cackle from Katsumi made me reconsider for a moment. A door slid open, and Katsumi quickly covered her mouth. Her tension released when she realized it was just Miki with a container full of colorful items, a towel over her shoulder, and a toothbrush in her mouth.
Her gaze lingered on Katsumi before she walked into the bath area and closed the door behind her. Katsumi let her tension go and looked over at us. “Anyway. I’m glad you all agreed. Now my plan can go forward. As soon as your feminine materials are ready to wear. ‘Till then, I have a few things to prepare. Don’t go anywhere, or I will physically hunt you down and super glue you to every girlish thing I have for all eternity.”
This was becoming like revolving doors. No sooner did Katsumi exit, her weighty footfalls sounding on each step (how, I wondered, could she ever expect to sneak up on anyone when sh

It was a huge hypothetical to consider. What if we made it back home and wed been missing for all those months? At the very least, our rent wouldve gone unpaid. Surely our families would have given us up for dead. I could just imagine it now. Trio of young men last seen going for a walk.
Katsumi leaned over to whisper in Sumis ear. Sumi stood like a marble statue, then curled at Katsumi like a tiger, struck, You wouldnt dare!
Ill do whatever I must. Its your choice as to which. She looked rather solemn. Did having us here really bother her that much? I had to put the question to her.
Jamie edged back as Katsumi targeted me with her eyes in response. Her sour look could kill a flower.

Dee Wright sighed as he finished tidying the desk. Hed finished with dusting, mopping, organizing, and not a single customer had come in for some time. He cracked his neck gently and settled into his chair. The industrial fan in the corner oscillated a few times. He rapped his fingers on the wood of the table. Just three hours left in his shift.
Despite the occasional boredom, he enjoyed working in the back. It was like his own little world. It was much better than being out there somewhere in the rest of store. He liked the owner but he knew she definitely had some quirks. Like the fact she opened a store which sold gender-bending products.
It was a dangerous place if one wished to remain the same gender. Despite those pitfalls, Dee had managed, in sixteen months, never to be affected by a single one of the store products. A record he held alone among the staff. Most employees were turned within a month at most.

To say that Katsumi was a bit upset by the final vote of five to four to let us stay is about the biggest understatement I can imagine. She flew around like a caged feline and hissed to the girls.
“I CANNOT believe this! This should’ve been UNANIMOUS! Fine, you want it that way. But I’ll have no part in moving them in and no part in any of them, period. I’ll only plot the demise of their manhood in one fell swoop. Don’t think I’m just bluffing. If you, all three of you, are staying, then all three of you will be wearing skirts before you know it.

Teresa knew what she wanted since her first waking thought. No books about teachers could move her desire, nor friends talking princesses.
She wanted to be a girl who made girls.
Not from paper or cloth. She wanted to make them from all the boys she saw. She even imagined her great-grandfather as a matronly beauty. The feeling was so very natural to her. Every time, she felt pure joy.
Her parents sighed and nudged her away from her hobby but tolerated it for how happily she spoke of it. Any dolls she was bought were former adventurers put into new roles. She sketched her family with all girls.
When it came to school, she refused to mask her feelings. No matter if it meant teasing and loneliness, she knew her place as she strode across the campus, catching all the new girls with her mental beam of change.

I didn’t wake with the expectation that the previous evening was all a dream. One look at the ceiling swiftly killed any chance of that.
I didn’t wake feeling renewed and refreshed. More like sweaty and stiff, on my head especially. Katsumi’s wig didn’t breathe.
I also didn’t wake up alone. Fortunately, it was just Ms. Ishida with a bundle of clothes in her arms. Some of them looked like mine. I sat up.
She flashed me a grin like a caught thief. “Sorry to wake you. Pleasant morning to you.” I assured her I woke up on my own, hoarsely returned the greeting, and asked her what time it was.
“Six in the morning, or pretty close to it.” Earlier than I was used to. Surprising the sun was even up at this hour.

After shaking off my confusion, I paused at the last step on my way back to the first floor. That delicious chestnut aroma enveloped me. I really was getting hungry. I planned to have something microwaveable after I finished my coding, but the udon which Ms. Ishida was warming up sounded a lot better. Of course, it was probably gonna be microwaved as well.
I peeked at the room I thought of as the living room. Katsumi had finished her job on Nathan’s hair and was blowing curling, white steam off her curry rice. Her mouth made a perfect, pink circle. Nathan was bright red with a sextet of bows in his hair in too-short but still cute braids. They looked utterly ridiculous. I gave Nathan a sympathetic smile.

The wind seemed to push us forth along our way. It was calm, but vibrant. The trees nearby, with their triangles of green, barely moved under its influence. Jamie led, and I was in the middle. Nathan and Nana took up the rear.
My wallet and keys slid around as I walked on the pavement. I stopped a moment to stuff them both in the bag Ms. Ishida had given me. The sun shone bright in the east like the purest white paint. I shielded my eyes.
No one said much along the way. With Nana, that wasn’t much of a surprise, but Nathan and Jamie both looked subdued. I figured that was my fault.
I thought I saw Mami’s bright hair on someone in the distance. They wore the same uniform as the other girls. The girl carried herself like Mami as well. But they were going one way, and we were going the other. I gave them one last look before we turned at the gas station.
