The Mirror Sea (Part 2)James refused to look back even though his body yearned to see her face again.
He knew at this point that she, Eleanor was someone special to him like she was his lover. Eleanor. That name brought back flashes of emotions, mostly wonderful warm memorises. That's when he understood the relationship... But he could not yet realise why his mind blocked the visions that came with the feelings. Or why his heart dropped when he thinking about going back to her side.
He blinked and stopped just in time to duck as a unknown figure fell over his head.
James looked back as he stood back up, locking eyes with the fallen injured person.
"Need help?" James held out a hand to the shaken guy.
"No," He frowned at James and then spat on the ground. "I don't need help from you... Or from anyone."
James watched as he got up with one hand covering the massive bleeding wound, it wasn't a pretty sight.
"What happened?" He asked without thinking as he observed the guy's uniform.
The man snorted in disgust. "
Part 9 - The Last breathThe Last Breath
Thalia whined unhappily, wrapping her hands around her soaking body.
"For goodness sake how long does it take to get to your home?"
Gen smiled but looked slightly disappointed.
"This is my home," He whispered. "This is all I have for a home."
Thalia shook her head apologetic. This is your home?
She gazed at the faltering dusting buildings, searching for signs for life. She hadn't noticed how quiet the town was or how it was slowing groaning, hanging on to the last remains of the buildings.
Minutes of silent walking passed and the buildings seemed to grow up much elegantly. But even so, parts of the tall yet proud houses were missing.
"It's getting better," Gen muttered, either to himself or to Thalia. "It's got to."
After a while and after many awkward comments, Thalia peeked slightly at his face and was surprised that he had a massive grin on his face. That made her smile even though she had no idea why they were smiling.
"What's up, Gen?" Her voice softer than usual.
Part 8 - drowning.The familiar heavy clunks echoed through the village and as if the warning bells had been set off, people started retreating back to their house.
The neighbouring families glared and started shutting their windows, trying to force the children from peeping their heads through the curtain gap.
The local vicar shooed his few daily visitors out nervously, closing the door quickly as the last person rushed out.
A minute later, the village was still.
All you could hear was the distant clunks from afar and the so often click of doors locking...
But as the heavy sound reached Keith's bedroom he flung open the window and leaned out, hoping to see person that the noise belonged to.
He imagined a pirate with a two metal legs walking with scars down his face, reeking of alcohol.
He imagined a robot with red eyes scanning the area to catch crime from each village, town and city.
And he did this every time.
And every time did he somehow miss the mystery figure.
Ray was drown
Part 7The bridge (once whole) began to crumble. Even just Ray's heavy metal boots alone made the bridge wail with strain.
And the reason why the bridge came to be like this was mostly Gen's fault... According to Ray.
But Thalia knew that Ray's huge (brown) club couldn't have possibly swung without conflicting any kind of damage. Ray however turned a blind eye.
"You left without a word!" Ray slurred his words as he paused suddenly to talk to Gen.
His cry made Thalia noticed the agony in his speech but she wasn't sure if it was emotional or physical pain. After shortly debating, Thalia dropped the thought and flicked her hair back in irritation. She couldn't care less.
Thats when she had just about reached her limits. She had watched the fight for long enough and was annoyed at Gen for completely ignoring her.
That then made Thalia realise something else other than being cold. She probably looked hideous from rushing through bushes and sleeping on the floor!!
Part 6Click click click
Gen stopped, his arm quickly raised to stop Thalia from stepping forward.
"What is it?"
Thalia peered over his hand, looking for the problem.
"Ray," Gen snarled through his teeth, answering her and calling the figure ahead.
The figure made a sound of amusement and stepped forward into the moonlight, his arms outstretched as if to welcome them.
Click click . Clack.
His metal boots found the start of the bridge and began moving towards them as he spoke warmly or as he thought warmly. Thalia didn't think his entrance was at all that friendly.
"Gen did you think I would forget?"
Thalia gasped as he spoke, his voice sounding like rusty nails grinding together. Plus not only had his voice reminded her of rusting nails, his clothing didn't look at all clean and it also seemed like his favourite colour was brown.
"Forget what?" Gen placed one foot onto the bridge. A warning.
Thalia placed one foot behind. A Getaway.
"Don't act innocent; you know that you betr
Part 5Gen looked down, he knew something was wrong with Thalia but he just didn't know what her problem was.
Ah! Gen jumped in sudden realisation. He must have upset her by leaving her alone sleeping!
Damn, he thought and turned slowly to apologise.
"Are you okay?"
Gen smiled at her and she faced away quickly, scowling.
Gen frowned, what was the reason then?
"What's wrong with you?"
Thalia suddenly stopped.
"You... You weren't aware?"
Gen paused, he was getting more and more confused.
"Oh, never mind..."
Thalia peeked up at his face and gingerly grinned.
"Sorry, I thought- I thought you were errr..."
"Ahh! It doesn't matter! Forget I said anything!!"
Gen raised his eyebrows.
"Can't I ask about-"
Thalia grabbed his hand and gently pulled him forward, trying to distract him.
"Which way now, Gen?"
"Oh... Just ahead."
She just smiled at his puzzlement, she could always kiss him later anyway.
And after joyfully laughing, walking and sk
Part 4It was night when Thalia woke up. The stars were out, blinking at her blurry eyes.
She put her hand down to steady herself from falling, and realised she was sat on dry grass.
That wasn't right. The tree ahead glistened with raindrops and frost. She was awake... Right?
She jumped, lost in sudden thought and then turned around when her heart had restarted it's normal chant.
She smiled warmly when she saw him run towards her, his top three buttons swaying undone in motion. She nodded her head as she sat admiring him; she loved how he was fit and how he was all hers.
"You're awake... Thank goodness, I was worried and-"
Gen sat down next to her and continued talking as she slowly linked his hand, moving closer and closer at every sentence.
Two minutes later she was so close that she could almost kiss him. Thalia paused and waited for him to stop worrying about her. She wanted him but he just wouldn't stop talking about her. Yes yes, Thalia thought.
His sweet angel voice rung though her head trying to awaken her from dreaming.
Only it didn't help. Him calling her name over and over softly made Thalia drift deeper into a place she didn't know without a care in the world.
Just let him keep calling me. She smiled at her selfishness and let the wave go over her.
And the dream began.
"Thalia!" He tapped her forehead.
A thunderstorm began.
"Thalia! Thalia!" He gently shuck her.
The sea crashed about, breaking rocks near by.
Thalia was rowing, the sea bouncing up and down. Each rocking moment water leaked in, soaking her already cold feet. The lightning flashed showing terror on her face.
Yet on the other side of the boat slept a man. His face calm and peaceful. An angel. Her angel. Only he couldn't be. Her angel wouldn't let her suffer while he sat there asleep, dreaming of flying and goodness knows what.
She wanted him to wake up, to see her trembling and take pity. But he just wouldn't wake up. The
Part 2He led her towards what looked like the most hectic part of the forest. After going ahead a while, he beckoned her forwards and together they walked quite literally into a bush. Only seconds later when she had recovered from attacking leaves, saw that they had made it on to what seemed to be a footpath.
She blinked, no more exploring through the unknown?
She gazed at him, hoping she looked even the slightest bit attractive with the wild mess she had as hair.
He returned her hopeful gaze with a laugh.
Sexy, he mouthed.
She winked back and posed with her back against a tree.
"Where to now?"
She spoke softly as she battered her eyelashes at him, almost ruining it with giggling.
"Through there, gorgeous"
She glanced at where he was pointing and frowned.
All she saw was more trees.
From Panels to Pages: Hook, Line and SinkerThere are some days where life throws you something totally unexpected that takes you out of the daily routine. I've noticed these changes can oftentimes be little adventures in and of themselves, wonderful little side stories to our "normal" walks.
Then again, living in a home full of Pokémon means that "normal" is usually anything but. So on a sunny Wednesday morning, another of life's little twists and turns came to trip me up.
Or rather, the twisting, turning tip of my dear Arbok's tail was what tripped me up.
I really should've learned by now that the long corridors of the Manor are the most likely spots for Arbok or my other serpentine Pokémon pals to ambush me! It's in their nature, after all; scouting out places to surprise their marks, which are most of the time all me. Within seconds of the toe of my shoe bumping into the purple appendage sticking out of the side storage room, she'd curled her tail all the way up my leg.
"WHOA! What the--?"
My surprise took away any
The Shadow Game - Mai Valentine TG (Request)
Paul was an avid Yu-Gi-Oh! player. He considered himself pretty good at it. He often won local tournaments and played online quite a bit. He was online playing against some other players like he usually was. He came across a certain player, asking him to play a "shadow game." Paul assumed the guy was just joking, and said "Sure." to him. Nothing was different from any other game. Paul was getting a bit upset, as he kept on getting poor cards and was just generally unlucky. Paul lost the match and was left with a short chat before he disconnected. "Well you lost, and this was a shadow game. Although, the punishment for losing is, let's say, a bit more fun." the opponent said before leaving the lobby. Paul sat at his desk for a moment, taking it in. He assumed it was nothing to worry about, but was still curious why his opponent talked the way he did. Before he could continue, Paul felt a strange feeling surround his body.
Paul's hair grew greatly as it reached down to his back, turning
The End, The Beginning.As she came upon the MoonClan leader, Brightpaw could clearly see his thread--bright blue, thinner than normal, but woven together with an intricate and uneven red one. She unsheathed her claws, Cinderstar and Ebonystar were holding Fallenstar down, with Echostar and Deadsoul nearby for support if needed.
“Don’t touch me!” Fallenstar--or, whoever was in control at the time--hissed, his mouth contorted in a painful way, his eyes bulging as he pleaded for his life. He trembled slightly, his neck nearly snapping with the effort, before he faced Brightpaw again.
“Do it. Make me pay for what I’ve done.”
Brightpaw nodded, this was the true Fallenstar, his true wishes. Raising her claws, the tabby shut his eyes, looking almost peaceful if it weren’t for the stains of blood and torn flesh throughout his body.
“Fallenstar, leader of MoonClan. By the will of yourself, by StarClan and by the leaders of all of the territories, I remove you from your
“Phew…I thought that game was never going to end!” Phil said as he took off his football helmet, wiping the sweat from his brow. What started as a simple match against a rival team had ended up going into overtime due to tough defense and blocking, and eventually it was a touchdown scored by Phil that won it for his team. On top of that, Phil managed to get through the game without spontaneously transforming into his anthropomorphic eagle form. It had become sort of a ‘secret weapon’ for his team, but at the same time, he didn’t want to fork out more money to pay for replacement clothing. However, he didn’t have any clue that by the end of the day, he’d never have to deal with that problem ever again.
“And now that the game’s finished, I should really get to work!” Phil said as he placed his helmet in his locker, deciding to skip showering until later on. Normally he’d shower as soon as a game had finished, but con

dusk light dimly washed over nandryx, soft pink luminance quietly coloring the gentle face of the young female; eyelids barely hung over her saltwater blue eyes, but they managed to somehow stay open, appearing like fragments of pale, breaking ocean waves that were miles away from shore.

she leaned back into his midsection, coal-black fur teasing into her fair crème fur. it was dark enough to remind her of ravens and their long feathers, and she grinned up at him. he was staring off, his icy blue eyes idly set on some part of the sky or mountains.
iii. are you going to age with grace?
sanibel liked these quiet moments when the evening air was cool on her skin and the light was gentle on her eyes and he was quiet like this. everything felt still for once.

Mythia's Melon Gum Research
Mythia and Herb are lab partners who love working together as a team. Herb has a knack to test drink any potions before it can be available for public use.
Today, Mythia and Herb are conducting research on creating a special flavored gum that are different from any other common gum people can buy in stores or gas stations. They gathered up all the required ingredients including a fresh green watermelon to get it's flavor.
"Mix them all together and this watermelon gum should be ready to go," Mythia said checking to make sure all systems can go.
"Right on it, Miss Celtil," Herb said and mixed the ingredients as if she was stirring whipped cream icing on a cake.
The machine began making noises like what would you hear in a factory and processed all the ingredients and then finally after the procedure, two pieces of gum were finally made. They were green colored strips that look sweet like a bubble gum flavored gum.
Herb grabbed the two strips and shared one with Mythia. The duo felt acco
How I claimed Amy Rose pt. 05How I claimed Amy Rose
A narrative through the eyes of Shadow the Hedgehog
I teleported away and into the police station since I had to do some worthless paper work and some other boring and tedious tasks. I walked up to the chief and he pointed me in the direction of where I needed to go and I walked up to an officers desk. It was the same officer that thanked me when I busted the car.
"Hi there.... Again....." I said as I crossed my arms.
She jumped up and saluted me, saying, "Oh it's you! My name is officer Nikita-"
I cut her off by raising my hand,"Let me first say, I hate formalities... Not because I'm not interested in meeting others, it just believe they are a huge waste of time....
She slightly relaxed and responded with, "Yes sir, sorry sir..."
I never got a good look at her the first time, but I see that she's an anthro dark husky, 5' 10", short black hair with white highlights, her
The Mirror Sea (Part 1)It was surprising. I mean I didn't expect to die.
The second later after I found myself as a soul surrounded by others that had reached their end, I realised something had happened to me.
You know when you die it's not at all what you think. It's a whole new world to explore.
But it's weird like that; nothing in this peculiar life seems to have its downside like previously.
At first it was a confusing puzzle winding in my mind. I had too many questions like everyone else had when they were reborn in this place. And this place… was beyond magic.
The huge shimmering golden corridors that I had appeared in looked like it never ended.
Look left – it never ended. Look right – more gold. Look forward – Same as before.
Look back and it's scary. Scary to think that it never ended.
I only say this now because back then I couldn't. It was like all I could do was see, my emotions weren't present at all. I was an empty robot with only one mission.
Left. Right. Forward. Back. Four
