Practicing Spells: Heads and Bodies - Part 1"Where's the rest of me?" Annabeth asked when she opened her eyes. Alex was standing above her, holding her wand, cringing.
"Sorry..." Alex said as she nervously opened her left eye. She let her wand drop. She knew that Annabeth knew what had happened to her, hence the question at hand. Annabeth had been sitting on Alex's sofa only ten seconds before, practicing spells as usual. And now...Annabeth was only a head-and a neck. Well-about 80% of her neck was there. Or more. Either way, Annabeth was lying on her cheek, her long, brownish-blond hair hanging off the edge of the pillow.
"How hard is it to change my hair color?" Annabeth asked impatiently. "I WANTED to be full-blond!"
This is where Alex began to laugh. She pulled her phone out and took a picture.
"I swear if you post that anywhere-I'm telling Logan you like him!"
"Don't blackmail me! You're just a head! You can't move!"
"The least you could do is set me on the table." Annabeth requested.
He might hear you.
I am pressed against the wall. My fingers are spread as wide as they will go as my palms press heavily on the drywall. I take a deep breath. Hold it tight. I feel the air escaping my lungs, my circulation; my blood thinning of oxygen as I hold, one, two, three .
I hear Him slither down the hallway. His movements are languid, snake like, as He comes after me. I can imagine it all in my head: the long, thin arms, coiling around every turn and corner, searching for me. Have you ever noticed His face? His eyesor lack thereof? I have a theory. He doesn't have eyes because He doesn't need them. He hears things. Feels things. Smells things.
I exhale, slowly, hoping not to catch His attention. It's a fruitless thought. He knows where I am. He's only playing with me. A game of cat-and-mouse, where He is the cat, and I am nothing more than a rubber mouse hiding underneath old and rusty furniture. He will
BTTXNeko!Reader PrussiaXReader EndingHe was ignoring you, and that just ticked you off. Alright. It was your fault, but he was to blame too, right?! With his adorable face and gorgeous red eyes and exoti- sorry! You hadn't meant to let your mind lead you on like that.
The reason that he was ignoring you was that you hadn't turned into a human or talked to him at all lately, and it was starting to worry your three housemates. This was attributed to the fact that you were undeniably attracted to the Prussia man and had grown to love him over the course of your stay. You just didn't trust yourself to keep your mouth shut or your lips to yourself in that form.
Unbeknownst to yourself, the three guys had devised a little scheme to get you back to normal. They would ignore you. Being a cat, there was nothing that you hated worse.
They all pretended not to see you. That is, they were, until you whipped out your super cuteness attack, and Toni and Francis were back to petting you and giving you attention. The only person tha
List of Major Ongoing ConflictsThe existence of the Grand Chessboard and the proliferation of planet and system-destroying weapons has led to a major reduction of large military conflicts. In this context, large conflicts are fought on an interstellar scale, often between two combatants each with faster-than-light power projection capabilities.
Grand Chessboard - Technically not a war, but a long-simmering ongoing conflict between the Third Galactic Empire and the United Galactic Federation, the galaxy's two superpowers. The Grand Chessboard, also known as the Tournament of Shadows and the Cold War, is generally considered to have begun after the Federal Revolution, and continued up until the modern day. The two superpowers have fought five direct wars against one another, and countless proxy conflicts. The creation of hyperlight weapons has, so far, prevented another Federation-Imperial War, as now both sides have the capability of decapitating the other with a first strike.
Yrrakis War - A major prox
Culture Profile: Solarian Community
The Solarian Community is a medium-sized interstellar polity, with a few hundred thousand member star systems. The star systems and worlds that make up the Solarian Community are located on the Federation side of the Neutral Zone, serving as a buffer between the minor states of the Neutral Zone and the Federation proper. On the rimward side, the Solarian Community borders the Duzhonev Imperium, one of the most highly militarized borders in the entire galaxy.
Natural Physical Appearance
The Solarian Community is made up of a variety of species, but it nonetheless is dominated by baseline humans. However, most Solarian humans are not of the Galactic ethnicity, but are of the Kzmik ethnicity. The Kzmik are fair-skinned and tall compared to Galactics. What makes the Kzmik unique is that they have a variety of natural hair colors, such as red, brown and blonde, and a variety of eye colors, such as blue, green and brown. Almost all other baseline human populations i
Planetary Case Study: Barbarian WorldsThe galaxy is littered with forsaken worlds. In the long history of man's expansion through the stars, many colonies have failed for one reason or another. Some colonies fail at the outset, and the colonists are abandoned to their fate. Some become devastated in war, either domestic in origin or coming from the greater galaxy. Others are devastated by natural or manmade phenomena, that make their environments hostile to human civilization. Yet others are simply forgotten by the rest of the galaxy, and they in turn forget about the rest of mankind and regress technologically. Whatever the circumstance, these worlds lose most semblances of civilization, becoming dominated by bloodthirsty warlords, gibbering savages, and other forms of violent, hostile peoples. These are the barbarian worlds.
Barbarian worlds are common throughout the Milky Way, many of them having come about during the fall of the First and Second empires of Man. They are particularly common in the Crazed Core, where the
Homestuck X Reader - Late Night VisitAuthor's Note: Alrighty my various bros and brosettes, if you hadn't guessed it already, this is an AU where the trolls had already played Sgrub but hadn't run into Jack and their planet wasn't destroyed. That way, a majority of their hives are still intact and no one (or at least most of them) haven't died yet. I hope you find this setting to your liking as you read, and be sure to READ THE DESCRIPTION~
It was Saturday, 12:10 to be exact. You were out taking a walk through one of your favorite spots on the trolls' planet: a large, dense woodland full of the whispering of leaves, the calls of many hidden birds, and the quiet steady crunching of your shoes on the brown gravel path you were following. The large leafy bushes that flanked your path were filled with the scufflings of tiny creatures darting about looking for food while trying to avoid detection. A cool breeze lifted your (h/l) (h/c) hair behind you as you kept on, the strange brigh
Seven Mintues in Heavan- SilverXReader
It was your turn to pick from the hat. You reached in and pulled out a
braclet with a pearl in the middle of it. "Put it on ___." The white
hedgehog walked toward you. "Oh heh, hi Silver." He smiled and took
your hand his and walked in the closet. "AWWW! They will be so cute

You felt arms wrap around your body and a head on your head "Silver?"
You asked blushing. You have been friends for years and you both would
do anything to make each other happy. "You're warm ___." He smiled as
he put one of his hands on your head, pulling you closer to him. "And
you're soft and fluffy!"
He laughed and nuzzled your forehead. Your face was pretty red now but
you liked the attention from him and you nuzzled back. "Hey___?" "Yes
Silver?" He looked down for a second and lookedd in your (e/c) eyes.
"Y-you're not one of thoses... "what happens in the closet, stays in
the closet people are you?"
You shook your head. "No why?" "B-Because I don't wan
Spain x Reader - Spain?
The smell of meat and spices wafted through the streets as you walked. The nights were always filled with laughter and parties, in Spain, there weren't a moment when you weren't having fun. Tonight however you were taking a break from it all; you decided to go for a walk to the lake. The moon was reflected perfectly in the water.
"Hello chika~" a voice said behind you. You turned to see a tall brunette man dressed in red and yellow.
"Hello" you said nervously
"I am Spain~" The man smiled taking your hand and kissing it, you smiled at his gentle movements and his overwhelming accent.
"How are you Spain? We're in Spain?"
"My real name is Antonio, but my boss would kill me if he knew I told you" he smiled "What's your name chika?"
"I am _____" you stuttered
"Such a beautiful name~ but you are not from around here?"
"No, I am from (home country)"
"How about I show you around? There are so many places I could take you~" He took your hand and began walking.
