umei no miko- part 2I patted him on the head and slightly sighed. Who knew that I would be bonded with Derek the crazy pervert? But it was not a huge problem. I knew the reasons behind how he acted and he knew mine. I pulled out of the hug a moment later to see my grandma in front of us all.
"Milady," She stated with a strong voice. "Your mother requests your presence."
I shot her a strange look. "Sandra?"
She only half bowed and grabbed my arm not in the slightest caring for me. Derek noticed my worry and took off beside me. I saw my grandma shoot him a look before ignoring the fact that he was following us. She pushed me into the carriage just outside the sacred gates and we took off.
What is going on? I thought. Sandra wants to see me? But then why would
Derek squeezed my hand and offered me a look of sympathy. Don't worry about it. Nothing is going to happen his eyes seemed to say. After suffering in silence we arrived at our destination. I was yanked out of the carriage and pulled into a build
Scepter Priestesses- Part 1Water spilled down my bare back sending rippling shivers up my spine. The water was ice cold and from the mountains. I took in a deep breath to calm myself down ignoring the cold that racked my body. I was in the middle of a ritual to purify myself and it was common to undergo cold water. I stood up and flung my long hair behind me. It was dark but I could see the lines of girls standing near me with cloth.
"Milady," Their voices echoed in the area I was standing.
I nodded in response as they bowed and dressed me in a typical cotton Kimono this time it was green in color. I pulled my dark green hair up into a ponytail making sure to add all of my hair into it to complete the look for the night.
"It's tonight Milady," One girl motioned. "Choose wisely."
I nodded while placing my feet out of the shallow river and onto the wooden walkway. I sighed and straightened my walk as I headed for the large building with sliding paper doors. I glanced at everyone I so happened to meet as they all b
A Song across Time-Part14She took in a breath and raised her arms as she let her chakra flow to the crown of her head. I want to get rid of my pointed ears and physic. After a moment of self-chanting, a tingling sensation ran through her fingertips. Her magic was working. Her ears pinched and shortened along with her body size. She was too tall to be considered a human along with her pointed ears. Once her body stopped moving she released her hold on her chakra and collapsed to the ground. Altering her appearance was like child's play, well it was child's play, when she was little.
Kylea stayed on the ground only for a second more. She knew with the time it took to board the Airships she had no time to waste catching her breath. She readjusted her cloak and left the hood down, now having no reason to hide anymore. Then she walked out of the store like nothing had happened and took off towards the ports.
"I cannot believe that you made me go through this!" Cephe bellowed. Both had made it to the ports on th
A Song across Time-Part13"Cephe do you know someone that can use magic?"
Cephe spun around from his position. He was watching the wall and cracks in attempt to calm himself down. "Magic?"
"Chakra works! Magic Cephe, magic!" Luke restated in new terns.
"I know what magic is. Why do you need to know that?!" Cephe snapped. "It's not like he can help us anyways."
"Who is he?" Luke questioned.
"Markis Rule, the court magician. He was in charge of teaching me all about chakra if I ever gained my magic.Which never happened."
"Did you ever thing that he could help us out?"
"Just take me to him and I'll explain when we get there."
Cephe hesitated but then he pulled his sand cloak on. "I cannot believe I am doing this. C'mon follow me. It's going to be a bit before we find him."
After hearing the story, Kylea paid the shop and pulled herself into the crowded streets. Her mind was racing over the fact that Cephe was on the run. The poor girl who rated Cephe out must have felt very bad. Kylea shook her h
A Song across Time-Part12"So if we are going to The Forbidden City, Stratos, the earliest airship will leave in two hours after lunch." Luke stated. He spread out the map he had left on the ground and flipped it over. It held the list of all the airship track times and arrivals to each so called city. Why they were called cities was beyond him. Each city was part of the great world. Each had their own rules and regulations along with different types of leaders to govern their people. Elves, Humans, Spell casters, and dwarfs lived in peace. So why weren't they called countries? But no matter. Then it hit Lukis. The Forbidden City regulations forbid elves from entering their city walls.
"Cephe do you know why The Forbidden City is the way it is?"
"Yeah. That's easy. It's because of the recent civil war that a decree was initiated. Decree number 47, I believe. It was branded no elvish land." Cephe stated his words like he was being questioned by his old mentor. Words that he should have memorized but,
A Song across Time-Part11Kylea was already out of the castle and into the streets in less than an hour. She too was wearing her normal green dress but it was hidden underneath a sand colored cloak. She knew most people would freak over the fact that an earth elf was in Acravalys. Most earth elves lived in the main islands not on a sky city. Not that she was scared but she did not want to add to the attention that she would have already had.
It was pushing lunch so she knew that she had about a few hours before she would have to catch a ride out to the Forbidden City, Stratos. The queen just before leaving gave her that piece of information. She told her that she gave Cephe a note of information before he left. It said that the girl was last known to be there so that is where Cephe would go.
The Forbidden City was a city that no Elvin person could enter at least not legally. Kylea would have to lie her way in to enter the city. She did not like the idea of going against her morals of ho
A Song across Time-Part10Within the paper a small message was written.
The girl was last known to be in the forgotten city. May your Journey be safe- Stay safe Dear Cephe
Cephe snatched the piece of paper out of his hands. He knew it was the message his mom wrote. He scanned the note as fast as he could, trying to take in the words. His mom was on his side or it seemed.
"Mom," Cephe mumbled. A slight tear fell from his eye. After a moment his straightened himself and stood upright.
"I know where we shall go."
"The forbidden city?"
A Song across Time-Part9"Wait. No, no, no, no, no! Your job, your family, you cannot leave that to help a foolish banished prince."
"I can do what I want."
Cephe pursed his lips in frustration. Lukis was being unreasonable. His whole life was turned around because of this situation. He didn't want to have him go through it as well.
"Lukis Ma Hizrad I will not allow you to accompany me. It's unreasonable and stupid."
"Why is that? I am in control of my life I can do what I want."
"You do not want to do this." Cephe said. He was running out of ideas in order to convince Lukis not to do this. He was sure that after he addressed him Luke would give up; all people did until now that is.
Lukis leaned against the crates they were just sitting on. He sighed as if contemplating whether or not he should speak. "Here I don't have mother or father. I just work. That's all I have known. I want to leave. I want to have my own life."
Cephe looked up in surprise. It would seem as though Lukis was filled with many mysteries t
A Song across Time-Part8They moved along the two buildings through one of the broken windows. Cephe was taken aback by surprise by the young man. He knew exactly what to do and what was to be said at certain places. As they moved along Cephe knew that Luke was a trust worthy man. Just then they entered a room though a broken doorway. Luke pulled him in and let go.
"Your majesty," Lukis bowed playfully at Cephe. Then he straightened up and his voice turned serious. "Why, might I ask, is Cephe R. Faelan running through the streets being an exiled prince of Acravalys?"
"I didn't have time to I couldn't just I don't know." It seemed as though Cephe himself didn't know why he was still in his home city. He was only trying to find where to start off with all of this. He didn't like the fact that everything was happening so fast that he couldn't control his own thoughtless actions.
"I really do not know," Cephe said again. "I guess I just want somewhere to start and why not here?"
"You know that's pretty
Coffee and rolls...? part 2
Walking down the crowded streets to your apartment, you felt beat tired. Trudging up the steps you ran into your neighbor, Arthur, a British ‘gentleman’ as he puts it. “Hey Arthur, is Al any better?” he shook his head no “He’s still in the cast, and he says it hurts like hell…” he waved goodbye and continued on his way.
Your apartment complex was one of those tight nit ones, were all the residents knew each other and acted like friends, it was a really nice place. When you finally reached your door you started to rummage through your bag looking for your key.
Finally finding the darn thing you unlocked your door and stepped inside. Setting your things down you flung yourself onto your couch, phone and note in hand. Quickly dialling the number you put the phone up to your ear and waited. One ring. Two ring. Three ring. Was he not going to pick up? then there was a click. “H’llo?” your heart melted. “H-hey, is this B
TurnaboutInked Puppetry: Turnabout.
A week after the victory on Moebius, the Freedom Fighters had met up for breakfast at Chuck's diner, sitting around a table large enough for all but two of them. Nicole, not needing to eat, was working, and Emerl was with her, mostly out of his usual need to be by her side, but also, he felt, out of necessity- Nicole was currently highly unpopular with people, especially the specific group that made up Mina's fandom, and Emerl felt the need to be with her at all times.
Fiona's seat had been newly squeezed in, between Tails and Bunnie, and she was currently leaning on the shoulder of the former, while chatting with the latter between mouthfuls.
“How're you two this mornin', then?” Bunnie asked. She had less food than the others- the conversion of material fit for Mobian consumption into energy that her bionics could use was a slow process, meaning that, during downtime, she could survive on much smaller meals.
“We're good.” Fiona smiled
OCT Round 1 - P3Tobias spun to see Phasma’s fist remaining where Silver Wolf’s head had once be. Certainly not anywhere near being Alex now, but in the full hero-zone, Silver Wolf rubbed her chin and tried not to wince. Why had she not even seen that coming?!
“Phasma, what are you-?” Tobias was cut off by Luna issuing a rumbling growl deep from the recesses of her throat and making a leap at Phasma’s arm, teeth opening to meet his wrist. Wanting to prevent any conflict, Tobias wrapped his arms in a vice-like grip around the wolf’s legs and dug his heels into the sand. Heaving the wolf back was not easy. Luckily for the boy, Luna had not suspected her usual comrade’s interference and hesitated, giving him the chance to gain purchase,
“Luna, come on, we can’t-“
Both of them looked up sharply when a crack cut through the air from behind them, paused in their awkward half-wrestle to crane their necks behind them, Luna’s ears darting upright

My Little Pony Friendship is Magic
Crusade of Friendship
Max narrates: “In Ponyville, there’s a group of fillies who call themselves “The Cutie Mark Crusaders”. They’re ponies who want to earn their cutie marks anyway possible and will do it together. I thought it was going to stay so far as just 3… but I should have expected more.”
*Location – Ponyville School yard*
It was another sunny and calm day in Ponyville, though 3 fillies were planning on making it fun.
Apple Bloom pops her head up: “Alright gals, are we ready?”
Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle put on some tin armor: “Ready!”
Crusaders: “CUTIE MARK CRUSADERS MONSTER HUNTERS, YAY!!”
The Crusaders were wearing tin foil folded up like armor and had rubber swords. No doubt they were planning something big.
Scootaloo: “We fight any monster that appears in Equestria!”
Apple Bloom: “And protect anypony in dan
Intro to a new lifeIt was a sunny, beautiful, Monday morning, the worst kind of day. I was walking to school with my best friend, my only friend really, Hope. She was being very gleeful as always, ranting about her parents and siblings or whatever, "So the night before, I had... are you even listening to me, Sammy?" she asked, "huh? oh, yeah, I-I'm listening", I said that I was, but I really wasn't, I was thinking about how, tonight, I was going to run away into the woods, ditching this hell hole called civilization. I was thinking about how my grandfather would act, probably with no emotion, how he acted with everything I did, heartless bastard. I was thinking about about how sad Hope might be. Hope is the only thing that has kept me from going into the woods for years now. Now enough about my sob story, lets talk more about Samuel McCalister Sparks the third, or you can just call me Sammy if you want, though it's not like you would be talking to anytime soon, I'm a damn character in a story.
OCT Round 1 - P2“You know, if we were awake right now, I’d have to arrest you.”
Phasma looked at the boy with some incredulity. After spotting Tobias he had removed one of his fabric arm-bands before unravelling it to make some kind of half-assed mask, biting and tearing crude eye holes in the soft cotton. Horrible, shabby, but still gave him the right to use “Phasma” when his name was asked for.
“Though,” the boy went on, “despite being unconscious, maybe we’re not dreaming. Maybe. It’s all pretty vivid if you ask me. I’ve dreamt a lot, I know these things.”
Phasma gave a long, slow look at the kid who swaggered a few steps ahead of him to the right, raising his brows,
“This,” the thief stated blatantly, “is all insane.” He emphasised just how insane it was by waving his hands in the air exasperatedly.
Tobias pressed his lips together, pausing as he thought he spotted movement ahead, squinting,
THU: OCT Round 1 - P1The feeling that he was floating was both a comforting sensation and a worrying one.
The source of the comfort was easy to pinpoint. Tobias could feel the warm water lapping at the edges of his body, pleasant and soft like velvet, his back filled with a heat that seemed to radiate to his very extremities and out through his fingertips like sunbeams. The air above the water, the side that greeted his gently smiling face, was heady but not clawing or humid. Rather, it held that perfect level of ambiance. The boy’s limbs felt like jelly and he was positive that he could happily lie there for the rest of eternity.
The worry was a lot harder to place. He wanted to stay, but he couldn't. He couldn't because that worried feeling continued to insistently poke around at the back of his mind until his head almost throbbed. He trailed his fingers in the water, registering the reddish hue of the inside of his eyelids. Why should he be worried? He was going to stay here forever where it was w
Project RHODES - Part 6
We brawled against SHAME while Knuckles and Luke fended themselves against Ivan, the fighting raging within the Institute. Ivan's punches were strong against Knuckles' own, not to mention the scientist had an arsenal of potion-bombs to throw at them. SHAME wasn't making it any easier for us, assuming a variety of different forms based on our group, yet oddly enough never bothering to impersonate me for some reason, although I guess he was using the fight to learn my new moveset.
In any case, it suddenly came to a half when Ivan suddenly retreated his punch as a figure landed in front of him.
It was Lucia.
"What! Are you scared of hitting a girl?" she taunted.
"I can't hit a lady even with flowers!" Ivan said.
"That's what I thought." she grinned.
She suddenly summoned a staff-like weapon, but both of its ends had hammers in them. I recognized the weapon, but Ivan had no time to react at all as Lucia hit him with it full force, sending him crashing

Chapter 3: Air People Stuff
A young woman was sprinting and leaping from tree to tree. Her long blonde hair flew behind her as she ran; her sapphire blue eyes sparkling with excitement and wonder. She wore a plain blue shirt with a brown leather strap and belt with silver buckles wrapped around her body. Her pants were simple and grey, there were brown fingerless gloves on her hands, and on her feet were brown leather boots.
She continued to speedily maneuver her way through the trees and vines, never slowing down once. She didn't stop moving until she reached an old, long tree trunk laying on the Jungle floor. She crept behind the trunk and crouched down, taking a peek at what was on the other side.
Before the woman could do anything, loud panting noises could be heard behind her. She turned her head to see a black cat running towards her, completely out of breath.
He trudged next to her, then plopped down on the ground. "You really couldn't have waited for

The singer of time
The Legend of the singer of time goes like this.
A long time ago in a beautiful palace a young man stood alone. He had no people and he had no family it was just him in the lonesome place. Fearing that he would go insane he asked the mighty gods for help to relive his loneliness but they stated to him that it was not allowed.
"You are fine as you are," They said. "You don't need a companion."
Turning his back on the loyal gods he turned to the devil himself.
"I shall make your wish come true." The devil stated.
His wish was granted and he was given the power to create, destroy life, and time with a song from his lips. He created his family and his people that he governed. He was happy for once in his life. Soon though, the devil grew weary for the young man had not paid his price yet for the gift. The devil returned to the man to get what payment he needed.
"I will take your sanity and that will be your eternal curse,"
And the devil left like that. The young
