Circus Feline Fill-in (Tiger TF/MC Quickie)
(Woman to Tiger)
"Care to explain yourself?"
Fiona rubbed the back of her neck. "I was, um... distracted?"
The Circus director shook his head, clearly not buying her excuse. But Fiona truly didn't have anything else to say to him — she forgot to lock the back of the Tiger's transport van and it escaped, what more did he want from her?
"Look, sir, I'd be willing to help with the search oper-"
"Enough!" he snapped. She shrank back into her chair in shame. "You will help us recover from your foolish mistake, but we don't need any more help with locating Kumatora."
Before Fiona could question what he meant, the office door swung open. "Cameron?" a man said upon entering the room. He was dressed up in a traditional magician's get-up and had an almost whimsical lilt to his voice. "You requested my presence?"
"Take a seat next to me, won't you, Harry?" Cameron said as gestured to a seat beside him. "You've no doubt heard about the situation with our Tiger performer by now."

Madness - Night 7
Ares wandered out of the stuffy temple, trying to get his blood flowing a little bit after sitting around for so long. His scrapes and cuts still stung, but not bad enough to ruin the enjoyment of a good,long stretch. The area had grown quiet, with most wyngrew out finding water to boil, food to eat, and searching for other small comforts. Noél had disappeared a while ago, carting along a bottle of sap--Chii'Falla knows where he got it--and had not yet come back. Concerned about the drunken idiot, Ares decided to take it upon himself to drag him back.
He traveled into the forest in the direction he has seen Noél go, keeping a sharp eye out for any crumpled heaps of sappy fur, but couldn't seem to spot anything. "Noél?" he called out, pausing to listen. Silence. "Hey Noél, you better not be passed out somewhere! I swear I'll drag you back by your tail if you don't answer me!" Nothing.
"Where has he gone?" Ares muttered to himself. It seemed unusual to wander so far a

The Moon Mech - Zazz TF TG MC (Request)
Arrienne woke up early in the morning after hearing a loud noise. She looked at her alarm clock and saw the time was 4:00 AM.
"What the heck was that?" asked Arrienne. "I must be hearing things."
Arrienne put her head down and tried to go back to sleep. She started tossing and turning after hearing the noise again.
"I've had it!" said Arrienne. "I must stop whatever is making that noise!"
Arrienne put on an outfit and went outside to investigate the source of the noise. When she went to her backyard, she couldn't believe what she was seeing.
"A Moon Mech?" asked Arrienne. "This is for interrupting my sleep!"
Arrienne picked up a hammer and threw it at the Moon Mech. The hammer bounced off the Moon Mech, causing no damage to be done to it.
"I think just I made it even more angry," said Arrienne.
Arrienne tried to run away, but the Moon Mech stopped her by shooting a star out of its mouth.
"AAAHH!" screamed Arrienne as the star hit her and bursted.

Flight - FFM 18
The Great Drought crippled the world. Perhaps it was mother Earth of punishing us because it took almost two centuries to be able to get back up. The blow we took was heavy. It happened fast too. The oil and the fossil fuel in the ground vanished without a warning. We were left in the dark.
We had to adapt, improvise and survive. Society, as we'd known it for a millennium, collapsed, but we lived on and the planet lived with us, with no fumes and no pollution we flourished. 
Today, two centuries after our history, I sit behind the pilot seat in the newest solar plane model and gaze upon the remnants of the metal beasts that once ruled our skies. They have been disassembled for parts years ago, but their skeletons still stand as a memory of an age long gone. The engine starts in a silent hum as I hit the ignition button. The machine shudders but moves along the runway. There's a silent anticipation from everyone who's watching me gain speed. The end of the runway is

(Leaf Plot) A Daring Plan
Shiningheart watched as Blackstone rallied cats in the center of camp. He had a plan and she had given it her backing. Hopefully, all would go well for the dark tom.  She sighed, the camp still felt different without Hollynose and the two youngsters who had been killed by the wolverine and patrols had to be more careful then they had been in the past. She laid her head down on her paws as the first groups of scouting patrols headed out of the camp. Blackstone was making a concerted effort to pinpoint the wolverine’s location. Gathered around the big tom was an especially large patrol, they filled the space at the center of camp. Alert and ready to head out as soon as one of the scouting patrols hit their mark. Most of the cats on the patrol were larger, older cats, or those capable of making especially large amounts of noise. Nobody wanted a repeat of what happened to Sparklestar’s patrol. . .

Joe sighed as he got up from his desk and turned off the light before he laid in bed. he sighed as he noticed the power light on the computer was still on. he didn't feel like getting back up to turn it off, it should fall asleep anyway.  It had been a rough week, he had been ballooned several times this week and he couldn't understand why or who had done it. Sadah came to mind, but it wasn't really Sadah's MO to stay hidden. His eyes drifted closed and the night took him while he was lost in his recollections.  
  It was a hot night and he found himself tossing and turning all night. However at one point, when he rolled over he stopped for a moment. He saw that his computer monitor was on and there was an image of a sheep girl on the screen. She had a dark brown hair, white wool and a black and white maid outfit.  the eyes moved to cause Joe to jump, the monitor turned off and went dark. That was really unsettling and he had trouble falling back to sleep. he c

Cherry Tree Swamp
All anyone ever said about Cherry Tree Swamp was the was nothing there, and you don't need to go there. Well in a way the parents were right.  No one remembers the old name of the swamp only that several Cherry orchards were set up around the swamp as close as possible, using the rich soil surrounding it.  The swamp itself is still the same as before, but usually around July or August it now dries up, as the farmers used the surrounding streams to irrigate the orchards.  The swamp was, as the expert puts it the last dumping point for all the surrounding leaves and branches before the water moved onto the lake.  The swamps murky ponds are mostly filled with silt, and nothing really lives there.  So they are right, but try telling that to curious kids.
It was the end of August and the week the boys stayed in school on Friday, while the girls left 3 hours early.  Last week it was the girls turn.  Wendy walked in the hot sun thinking how her brother would

However the only thing there was to observe was EXP7 pass every test they threw his way. Week three and little could take him down. He was well adjusted, had many skills prior to coming to the lab. He was on all levels, nearly outclassing them.

Cora's breath hitched at this. His heart dying slightly as he realized his entire team looked upon this tokota as if it were a GOD. How could they... how could he?

The Guardian Part 1 [One-Hour Story]

“The Guardian” by K9 Lupus

PART 1
In a time long ago long before the magic of the world had faded back there lived a boy in a small home with his family. One day the boy was wandering the familiar woods around his home, content to amble and examine every manner of shrub and plant when he spotted a green butterfly with speckled, blue spots. The butterfly cared little for the boy and instead wanted to get its fill of sweet nectar from the flower it had landed upon. The boy crept closer to the butterfly, sneaking forward with careful steps. When the boy had come too close the strange little insect began to fly away, and so the boy gave chase wanting to catch it in his hands to get a closer look. The boy laughed as he ran after the little insect, admiring its dance through the trees as it weaved around their trunks.
The boy followed the butterfly, farther and farther still, never seeming to get any closer to it until with a sudden motion it rose

Eighty-Seven Days Before the End
They look at the pocketknife every morning. Run their fingers over the handle, tracing the letters of the engraved name. Flip it open and gaze into the mirrored blade, wishing they could see through it to find their love on the other side – but all that looks back from the polished steel are their own haunted eyes.
Vivian gave them the knife before she left. It’s all they have left of her: they can’t write or call her, can’t even follow her on tumblr. Viv’s parents know all the passwords, and they’re not the sort to let even a hello go unquestioned.
They had to meet her in secret, before she moved away. She didn’t even dare to tell her parents her new name, or that she had one, or that she needed one.
It’s only for eighteen months. Seventeen. Sixteen. Eight. Five. They count down the days to Vivian’s eighteenth birthday, waiting for her freedom, helpless to help her.

Magical Realism and Phineas and Ferb
Magical realism has a work’s setting take place in a realistic environment, however this realistic setting has fantastical or otherworldly attributes. Instead of being a different world or the ordinary world being introduced to extraordinary elements, magical realist works make the extraordinary ordinary. As a literary movement it was spearheaded by Latin American writers like Jose Martí and Ruben Darío in the 1940s-50s and became popular in the 60s when Latin American literature spread internationally.
An example of magical realism would be Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis. The setting is ordinary for the time but protagonist Gregor Samsa wakes up one morning to find he’s a giant insect. Despite being an insect, Gregor isn’t worrying or panicking. He’s focused on helping his family and whether he can work or not. The framing of the story doesn’t treat this extraordinary event as such; everyone adjusts quickly. Framing the extraordina

Lucy of Panolia: Chapter 4
Once Lucy had finished putting the outfit on some of the guards began to return along with Governor Tull. He thought that she did look beautiful in her new clothes and she reminded him a little of his wife when they first met. That was many, many years ago but he could see that she was slightly adjusting her toga. Just so that it would fit on her body even better, it was a little shorter than she would have liked but it would do its task well.
Tilano was one of the guards who was on duty and he could see Lucy as well. It was his first time he had seen her properly stand up and he couldn't help but marvel over her height. He had seen her sitting down for a while and he had an idea about how tall she was. Seeing her stand up however was a different story.
"I hope that fits you well," said Governor Tull. He was looking up at her and he stood closer than he normally did. He didn't feel any fear toward her, he was just happy that he was helping her in her time of need.

Winnie's Wind Part 2
CONTAINS: Gas, burping, some belly stuff, and what are probably too many leads that I will forget to follow up on
It’s never very pleasant for Winnie to take the taxi. Despite her insistence to herself that she’d never see the driver again, Winnie was always too shy to let her gas loose as she rode. Normally, a bike would be her preferred mode of transport. All her usual destinations were within just a couple of blocks from her apartment, and when she got up to speed she’d be moving too fast for anyone she passed by to realize the belch they might have just heard was her. You’d think biking everyday would keep Winnie in shape, and yet she’d always hover at just about 150 pounds in weight at just under five and a half feet in height. It must be all those vegan pizza leftovers.
That was probably what was on Winnie’s mind on her way home from her first, nearly surreal, session with the cast and crew. As much as she wanted to reflect on it, being the fir

The Fortress on the Hill
    Leslie stepped through the waterfall of willow branches into the glade and waited for her escort. He moved slowly, so she sat down and opened her favorite book to read while she waited for him. There was something important he'd said he needed to show her. It sounded important, from the urgency in his missive.
    He must have been waiting for her, because it was only a moment before she heard the creaking of wood and he entered the glade. There was no smile of welcome this time, and his leaves drooped as if it were a bright midsummer day. Leslie wondered if she'd done something to upset him. There was a sparkle in his eyes, though, one he had every time he laid eyes on her, and he reached out to take her hand. If he was upset, he would not have come in the first place. He had needed to see her. She repeated this to herself as he led her to his home across the way.

[T-E|K-E] Ancient Forests
"Quickly, it's this way!" Koichi called out to the group of tokota following after him. The excitement in his voice was just as easily readable in his movements as he bounced off ahead of them. Tiri and Bastet were close behind him, while the larger Marina and July trailed a bit further back. Ahead lay a forest, seemingly unimpressive, but Koichi knew better. He had seen something in it some time ago from a higher vantage point. There was something in this forest, and he was going to find out exactly what it was. The trailing tokota were a varied miss of excited to mildly curious, but to them it was nothing but a forest. Perhaps his own excitement was contagious, because without knowing what it was they were going to look for they followed behind.
As the group grew nearer to the forest Koichi realized just how massive it truly was. The trees were so tall that he could only think they must have been ancient, growing here unhindered for so long. It stalled his excited movements for a few

Emmi's Beach Party - A WHAT CONTEST?!
Jessie Whitaker, a woman in her mid-40’s had been power walking across the boardwalk when she passed a group of girls who looked like they were half her age. They were crowded around a giant bulletin board, giggling, before walking away.
Curious, Jessie turned around and walked up to the board to see what was so funny. That was when she saw the rather obnoxiously big ad about a “wet t-shirt contest” and first prize was $1000 cash.
“How disgusting, women shouldn’t degrade themselves for money. It’s gross and despicable!” Jessie muttered under her breath as she continued to read the rest of the ad.
The contest was being held on north end of the beach and would be starting soon. Jessie ripped the ad off the bulletin board. She was going to give this contest runner a piece of her mind.

Emmi, Grace, and Cleo had finally finished getting things set up for the party. All that was left was waiting for the DJ and the party could really get started.
