Dragon Bond: Chap 8 - Payment
It was raining again. But then, on this side of the mountains, it always seemed to be raining. The King stood in his dimly lit throne room, having insisted upon shutting the lights off for a time. He found it easier to think while wrapped in darkness. The distractions of the lightened world could not be seen in shadow. He looked out of the window behind his throne, gazing out at the crumbling city beyond. The King couldn’t remember a time when the place didn’t look like a slum, nor did he particularly care to think about such a time, anyway. What mattered was what it looked like now, and Narcen’s capitol of Kresh was nowhere near as perfect as the King desired it to be.
The whooshing sound of someone landing just outside the throne room caught his attention, and though he distinctly heard the sound of someone running down the marble hallway toward him, he did not bother to turn around. After a moment, the person reached the base of his throne, and knelt before speakin

Dragon Bond: Chap 5 - Mission Start
Dear Ms. Cleo Sirus and Pepper,
We are writing to inform you of the mission that you are being sent on for your summer assignment. As you know, the normal Freshman summer mission sends different groups of students to specified areas of our country, where they are tasked to seek out an assigned governmental representative and obtain a seal from them. The sophomore mission is relatively similar, though it differs in one large way: you will be sent instead to Tiniri to retrieve a seal from one of the officials there. You and a few others have been tasked with the retrieval of a seal from the Queen herself, who graciously offered to receive you when one of her council members regretfully turned down our request for aid in this assignment.
During your mission, you will be required to follow certain parameters, which are placed in effect in order to prepare you for the worst possible circumstances. Because Dragon Masters make up all but a tiny percent of our country’s army, you may,

Dragon Bond: Chap 3 - The Tournament
Cleo arrived at school half-way through her second exam, and was allowed to stay after hours to complete the one she had missed. The tests were stressful and hard, but she managed to pass each of them with flying colors, thanks in part to her renewed self confidence from Pepper’s Choosing. He was not allowed to sit with her while she completed the exams, but her bond to the Mini helped a great deal. Then she and Pepper spent the evening at Loki and Windigo’s house, where they celebrated the end of the semester with Loki’s family. There was only one more day left of school.
And Cleo was looking forward to it, for once.
The next morning found Cleo in her last-period classroom, surrounded by her peers. Everyone was dressed in their military uniforms – including Cleo, though she had almost forgotten in her rush to get out of the house that morning – and those who did not already have short hair had pulled their locks into buns and short ponytails. The silver s

Dragon Bond: Chap 2 - Affinity
Pepper woke up from a restless sleep as the sun began to stream through the windows of Cleo’s bedroom. He was warm and comfortable, and when he opened his eyes, he saw that he was still curled up in a nest of blankets on his new partner’s bed. The dragon yawned and rolled over, wishing that he could go back to sleep. He and Cleo had stayed up extremely late the night before.
Part of their insomnia was due to the sheer excitement of finally being paired – it was something they had both been anxiously waiting for. They had spent hours getting to know each other, and after a while, Cleo took it upon herself to refresh Pepper’s knowledge of English. They found a spare set of flash cards in the attic, and the dragon’s partner quizzed and corrected him patiently for hours. By the time 4am rolled around, Pepper could speak in full sentences, though his words were still rather choppy.
When the dragon rolled over, he noticed that Cleo – who had been sleeping

SI 27-The Remake
Time passed slowly in those cells. Hours, days, weeks…it all had no meaning in there. Every day was the same: the prisoners awoke, in their dreary, dismal cells, at an ungodly hour, usually to the sound of someone screaming. They may have been screaming from the guards’ torture, or they may have only been screaming from nightmares…no one ever really knew.
The day would be spent in isolation. None of the prisoners ever really got to interact with each other, out of the guards’ paranoia that they might plot to rebel and escape. They were kept in separate cells, only interacting with their brothers or sisters. Reikon guards constantly patrolled the halls, occasionally entering a cell and beating the living daylights out of a prisoner if they felt so inclined. No one would protest to the cruel treatment…after all, they were only Soixs.
In their cell, Leon, Ross, and Iris had dozed back off. Iris had her head resting on Leon’s shoulder, who was currently domina

Man, I haven't written a journal in a hot minute. It has literally almost been 6 months.

I won't keep you for long, just a few quick announcements!

Dragon Bond

I posted Chapter 2 today, after four months of waiting. First of all, I want to apologize for how long it took me to get this chapter to you. My editors were all very busy, and didn't really have time to copy-edit it for me before I posted it, something which I cannot blame any of them for.

In the future, I've decided to go ahead and post my chapters when they're done, regardless of if they've been peer-edited first or not. However, when/if my editors do get around to giving me pointers, I'll update the already-posted version of the chapter to reflect the edits I've made. So if you go back and read some chapters a second time, you might find that they have changed slightly. Just a heads up!

As I mentioned in the comments section of Dragon Bond: Chapter 2 - Affinity, I'm going to go ahead and post Chapter 3 tonight as well, in order to augment my apology for how long it took for me to get these chapters out. I promised you two chapters a month, and I failed. That's not going to happen again.

(Well. Not for a while at least. You know me, I always tend to get distracted or something.)

TheSilverNexis

So there are a lot of gaming channels on YouTube right now. I personally love them. So does my best friend, Silver. One day in October, we were putzing around, and decided to go ahead and make our own gaming channel. Cause why not?

We're trying to differentiate ourselves from the rest of the gaming community by making Let's Plays of games which have not been overplayed by the more popular gaming channels. For instance, I'm currently playing EarthBound for the SNES, and Silver is playing the original Harry Potter for the PC. We do still play some games that are more well known (Skyrim and Don't Starve, for instance), but we're trying to slowly bring in a bunch of different, more obscure games, shall we say.

If you're into that sort of thing, please come check us out! If not, no hard feelings! Gaming channels aren't for everyone c: That being said, I would really appreciate your guys' support! Feel like helping us gain a little popularity?

TheSilverNexisChannel

Here's our current posting schedule:

Monday - EarthBound
Tuesday - Harry Potter
Wednesday - Skyrim & EarthBound
Thursday - The Walking Dead
Friday - Don't Starve & Skyrim
Saturday - Left 4 Dead 2 & The Walking Dead
Sunday - Potporri

... That's pretty much it. Have a good evening, everyone!

I'm kind of a socially awkward penguin, and naturally nerdy in almost all possible aspects. I watch practically every science-fiction show based in space, I regularly quote Lord of the Rings, I've been sucked into the gaping mouth of Reddit, and I play so many video games that I set up a gaming channel on YouTube.

I fancy myself more as a writer than as a visual artist. The only art I ever really create revolves around the characters in the stories I write, for my own personal visualization.

I hope to eventually become a published author, and am currently studying to become a High School English/Creative Writing teacher.
