SM Novel 11 Chapter 4

Chapter 4 Bad Kitty Luna and Rhett Butler kept running along the paved river bank, the sound of the rat army still close behind them. The slope was basically divided into two parts, as halfway down the slop had a level area where workers could walk, before sloping down again and to the river. Luna was gasping for breath and Rhett was losing his second wind, but they couldn't afford to slow down. “Keep running, Rhett! Faster!” Luna pleaded, but a second later it didn't matter, as the rats caught up to them. The wave of rats shot past the cats, making Luna and Rhett stumble sideways to avoid them. Much to Luna's surprise and relief, the rats didn't touch them at all. That relief was very short lived as part of the wave of rats directly in front of her and Rhett suddenly broke away, and Zoicite manged to get free of the mass of animals. She grinned viciously at her cornered prey. “Well, it seems this 'disaster' worked out in my favor after all!” Zoicite said.

It was a two-story house with off-white walls and green trim.  The lawn was still lush and green despite the colder weather, and potted plants stood in the corners of the second floor balcony.  A short flight of stairs led up to the front door. “Nice place,” Serena said as they stopped in front of the house.  “So, what are we going to do?  We can't just go up to the front door, knock, and say, 'Hey, we're superheroes, and there's a monster hiding in one of you,' can we?” she said with a frown. “Good point,” Lita crossed her arms over her chest and furrowed her bro

Sailor Moon Novel 11: The Mysterious Sailor V!

Chapter 1 Luna's Bad Day Serena was snuggled down into her blankets, happily snoozing the morning away.  She loved Saturdays; no alarms, no Miss H, no getting up at way-too-early-o'clock.  She could just sleep until she was ready to get up, like nature intended.  She floated in happy dreams of Tuxedo Mask and ice cream sundaes, until a soft beeping started to infiltrate her mind.  She opened her eyes groggily, wondering what the noise was – it wasn't her alarm, it was no where near loud or annoying enough.  After a moment, she finally realized it was her Sailor communicator. “Mm, leave a message,” Serena mumbled and rolle

The Ways of the Saiyans by NansJns Chapter 1: The Last Night of Kukatoh The Saiyan cities were quiet beneath the burning sun as it sank slowly toward the horizon, painting the sky brilliant colors of red, gold, and blue as it went.  The streets beneath the hot sun were empty and scorching, and all of the doors and windows on all of the buildings were shut.  To an outsider, it would almost look as though every city and village on the planet had been abandoned.  Even the great Royal Palace looked deserted from the outside.  From within the buildings, however, soft voices could be heard whispering prayers and chants.  Once the sun had final

Filk Friday #4: Firefly

Filk Friday #4: Firefly

Why, this is coming late in the day; sorry about that, I had another busy, distracting day. So, it occurred to me that while I said in the FAQ that filk is the music of science fiction and fantasy fandom (I accidentally left out the fantasy part, I admit), I've only posted songs about fantasy. Where my space ships at?? So, to start correcting that, here are some filks inspired by Joss Whedon's Firefly! Mal's Song, by Vixy and Tony: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wof_mvcB0YA Leaf on the Wind by the Bedlam Bards (Warning! You may want tissues on hand for this one!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3NM0gDYy-s Enjoy and see you next week!

Okay, these late journals are starting to get out of hand. Starting next month, I swear I will get back to posting the new journal during the first week of the month. Well, at least I'm still posting monthly journals. that's better than nothing. ANYWAY - as the journal title says, I have some big news! I have, at long last, created The Filk Club - a filk-group here on DA! :thefilkclub: It doesn't have a proper stamp yet, admittedly, but the thing exists! I only have one member, and the only songs currently posted are mine, but hopefully that will change in the near-ish future. Heck, I'm reaching out to more people right now, right? Wish me luck! Actually, I need to do a journal for that club, so I should go do that. Until later! *~*NansJns*~* Need a Proofreader? I'm a semi-professional proofreader (I've been proofreading for over fifteen years, I just haven't been paid for it) looking for business: I find and fix spelling and grammar errors, typos, poor phrasing, and
