Doctor Who - ''One Day'' - Chapter 11Chapter 11
The cold artificial brightness of fluorescent lights shone down upon Susan, disorienting her as she lay upon a metal medical examination table, bound to it by her wrists and ankles. The room she was in seemed to be bleached white, a stark contrast to the otherwise gloomy corridors of the underground complex. One wall was lined with computer monitors that displayed complicated readouts and information. On the opposite side was a table laid out with several sterilized medical tools. Next to the tools was Susan's bag of peculiar metallic parts as well as her shoes and jacket. Behind Susan, a screen displayed several X-ray images, the one of her ribcage revealing her double hearts. In front of her a large glass window separated the examination room from the outside corridor.
With Susan in the room was a Dalek which Susan recognized ad being from the Invasion and was doing her best not to show fear towards. In addition, there was a young
Doctor Who - ''One Day'' - Chapter 10Chapter 10
The Doctor, Clara, and Susan stepped out of the TARDIS to be met with a horrifying sight. Three Daleks, each with their gun sticks locked onto three and ready to fire, their eyepieces glowing brightly. Two of them were plated in bronze-colored dalekanium, which the Doctor recognized as being from the era of the Time War. But the third struck the Doctor as oddly familiar. This one had a light grey and silver design with the characteristic half-spheres on the skirt being a light blue color.
"Well now," the Doctor said to the third Dalek. "Hello again."
One of the bronze Daleks extended its manipulator arm towards Susan as she clenched her grandfather's arm in fear.
"Facial recognition and DNA signature are a match," the Dalek reported. "Gallifreyan female, identification: Susan Foreman. Target acquired! Target acquired!"
"Grandfather, what do they mean?" Susan trembled.
But before he could answer, the Doctor heard the sound of many marching

Two more long months at sea passed before the travel-weary adventurers were startled by Odahviing's roar. He stretched his great wings and leapt off of the Icerunner's bow, the ship rocking from the force.
"Morokei sul! Hofkiin daal! Brit himdah!"
Aravis and Jenassa quickly came up to the main deck to see what was happening. They saw Odahviing circling above while roaring and letting out jets of flame.
"What in Azura's name is the meaning of this?" Jenassa asked Aravis irritatedly.
"We...must be close," Aravis' eyes widened in excitement. She and Jenassa dashed towards the helm. "Kharjo! What's our bearings?"
"By the twin moons, there it is!" Kharjo answered. "We've reached Akavir!"
"All hands!" Jenassa shouted. "Prepare to disembark at Ionith!"
The Icerunner pulled in hard to starboard, steering course past threatening rocks and towards a safe harbor, the whole crew on board and ready for what may come. As the shi

~ 21st of First Seed, 4E 202
~ Most people dislike having their birthday fall on a holiday. As for myself, I feel most fortunate to have been born on Lady Azura's summoning day of Hogithum. Jenassa and I have both prayed to Azura for guidance on the long remainder on the journey that awaits us.
~ We've sailed along the eastern coast of Morrowind for the majority of the day. Seeing the familiar mountain line brings back very old memories of when I was just a girl. Before I even knew I was of the dragon blood, before I left Windhelm, and before the Red Mountain disaster.
~ The rest of the crew seems to be holding up well. Farkas and Vilkas have been boasting of their many adventures while Cicero keeps everyone entertained with his songs and jokes. Odahviing's presence alone even helped us avoid an attack from Argonian pirates simply by frightening them off! Lydia, however, has been unusually quiet. I fear the expedition is taking

The sun was beginning to dip below the horizon. Kharjo had proven the Icerunner's worth by being able to successfully navigate the vessel through the fields of ice of Skyrim's Sea of Ghosts. The crew was now beginning to foresee the destination of their expedition with more hope, now that they could trust the ship that they travelled on.
As the sun sank lower and lower, more and more stars appeared to the travelers and the sky was filled with a beautiful display of the infinity of Mundus above. Odahviing, still situated at the ship's bow, had just about finished dining on the carcass of a shark which he had earlier plucked from the frigid water. After one last bite, the great dragon gazed at the splendor above him before settling himself down to sleep.
While Aravis and Lydia were busy pouring over a map with Jenassa at the navigator's table, Vilkas was busy talking with his brother.
"You should take more time to enjoy such wonders like what's over your
The Elder Scrolls: AKAVIR - Chapter IVCHAPTER IV
The carriage finally reached its destination at Solitude and parked near the city gates. Aravis, Lydia, Farkas, and Vilkas climbed out and thank the driver. They strolled down the path to the docks, all the way admiring the amazing sight of the city situated on the great arch above them. As they came upon the sight of the awaiting Icerunner, they finally were met by Aravis friend and small-time companion, the Khajiit warrior named Kharjo.
"Ah, good friend Sedrayne," he welcomed. "The twin moons shine brightly on you. Kharjo is quite glad you are here to lead him on the voyage. This will be quite far to travel. Quite far from the warm sands of Elsweyr, indeed."
"Well, it's very good to see you again, Kharjo," smiled Aravis. "And I'm glad for your company. You'll make a fine helmsman."
"Khajiit will follow," came the promised reply.
The group walked across the wooden planks until they came to the retired Dunmer assassin Jen
