The SojournersAn immediate darkness fell over Riel as throughout the celestial vessel he commanded power systems failed and ship responses died into silence. Moments earlier, he was in a grueling fire fight with a splintered group of a cult of beings known as the Fallen. They appeared out of nowhere with a surprise attack to try and decimate him and his allies during their journey to find a way back to Earth. Making an effort to repel the attack and give his friends time to escape, he found his ship at the mercy of an internal functions flaw in its poisoned quantum engines, and caught in the turbulent wake of a nearby collapsing star, the ship was now tearing itself apart under the stress of tremendous conflicting gravitational forces.
Stuck within the forming event horizon of that same dying celestial body, Riel realized all too late that it was a fatal risk to kill his ships engines and drop the shielding surrounding his quantum core. Now, there was no way to reinitiate either of them, and aside f
The Remnant: When Bridges BurnFear overcame him for a moment and falling back from Aden’s string of high speed attacks, Vanguard raises his arm in a wide sweeping arc. Channeling the energies of the armament he carried, he prepares himself for a charged defensive strike. He takes a moment to breathe, steadying himself, and the moment he needs is there, as Aden makes for another high-speed lunge. Prepared now for the counter, Vanguard shifts his body to the left in a quick jerk, and hay-makers his charged strike in time to line up with Aden’s split second bull rush. And in that moment of the impending impact, time itself slowed down to a grueling crawl.
In that window of time, heightened by adrenalin, Vanguard found himself so close to Aden, that he could now clearly see the intensity of unsettling darkness that had replaced the whites his eyes. It was only a split second… a fraction of a moment… but still it was enough time, as Vanguard’s arm was immediately blocked by Aden’s f
The Remnant: Revelations part 4Running through the streets of Manhattan, Yuri held little back in the way of effort as he drew closer to where he needed to be; sensing that he was drawing closer to her. Ducking down alley ways and dodging through wreckage and debris, he easily sped by unnoticed under aerial scout ships that crisscrossed above the city streets. This was child's play compared to the conditions he was used to training under and given time if these crossovers were not brought to a stop, he knew the rest of the world would find out just what those conditions were for. Manhattan was currently a mess. An anomaly had occurred wreaking havoc on the city, and during the chaos, crossovers began to occur in massive waves. No one was prepared for this... and this was only the beginning.
Coming to the edge of the intersection, Yuri came to an immediate halt. He could hear the propellers of the American war birds patrolling nearby, but their distance did little to reassure him that the surrounding area itself was
The Remnant: Revelations part 3The rain was still coming down when he finally opened his eyes. Sprawled out across the ground the stormy sky laid open before him sparsely obscured by the branches of trees. A swirling mass of moisture and air, though on his mind, the stars were beyond his reach tonight; and the torrent of water that poured from the heavens in their stead, did not appear to be in the mood of stopping anytime soon. It was relentless actually but for all its tenacity he could barely hear it above an annoying drilling bu...
"Get up!" She screamed.
Ann had finally recovered from the impact of her rescue tackle of Riel and she knew that they had to move fast. The helo needed time to adjust itself and allow its turrets to re-acquire them but seconds were flying fast in the heat of the moment. Riel appeared to be suffering from a concussion but unless they moved now they had no hope of dodging a second volley of bullets and she was not gonna go out laying down in all of this madness. Climbing to her feet she
An Inconvenient TruthIn the last couple months I have learned a new lesson about friendships and relationships as a whole. It wasn't big but it was pretty deep and as I thought about it... it continued to be more profound. Relationships come and go but friendships, they are called such because of their lasting and connective properties. The friendly types are just the ones who won't out right hurt you or upset you. They just want you on there side. It is a matter of conveinience. Because when it becomes inconvenient, the friendship ends or becomes distant and hollow. There's no substance to it. Real Friendships though: the kind that makes a best friend and marriages happen; well they come from relationships that require more than a name. They go beyond convenience. They strive to remain connected... through distance and through strife. Those real Friendships; those close Friendships; do what they can to exist because those are the people that come to mind to share a moment with... to share a trip with... s
Sojourn: From an Immediate DarknessSojourn
An immediate darkness fell over Riel as through out the celestial vessel, power systems failed and ship responces went silent. Moments earlier, He found himself caught in the wake of a collapsing star, and his ship was tearing itself apart under the stress of a functions flaw in its poisoned quantum core. Stuck within the forming event horizon of the dying celestial body he realized all to late that it was a fatal risk to drop the shields around his Quantum core and kill his ships engines, but that was the last bit of direction given by his celestial sphere during the chaos. It was a death sentence honestly by all understood science, and as the turbulence tore through his ship, he was in full belief that this was how he was going to end... along with this star. The ship screamed as the hull seemed to warp and bend in the pull of distorted space and time and then in a loud explosion of light and sound, everything... died. But in the moments that ticked away in the silence, with
The Things That Bind Us"And to think this is all their own doing..." She scoffed as she surveyed the destruction around her through the reflection of the window pane she was looking through. Avril, as she was called, was an unfortunate soul who had little to no sympathy for mankind. Having fell victim to their malicious natures in her youth, her heart had long since grown cold towards her fellow man. "No doubt in my mind...; the self righteous bastards are getting what they deserve." A small smile barely cracks through her solemn stare.
The rest of the group, having survived this far together, understood the pain in her words and learned to let her opinions be. They were all survivors in their own rite. Discriminated and abandoned for who or what they were; even if they had no choice about what they were hated for. Their differences were what set them apart from the people that they called family and friends, but it was those same differences that brought them together. They were merely survivors on there ow
The Remnant: Revelations part 1Excerpt from the Remnant: The Remnant, Fall from Grace
Climbing out of the rubble, she froze, in shock, as her gaze took in the aftermath of the 'cross-over' that had just occurred. It wasn't her first encounter with the creatures that had been crossing from a world unknown to our side, but Grace had never seen anything like what broke through the rifts in space this time. It took everything she had to endure the confrontation leading up to the creatures as they engaged with a surprise attack and she did not expect to survive. But here she was. She had survived. The dust had settled; and across the debris field of crushed buildings, mangled bodies strewn across cratered streets, and thrashed vehicles they stood opposed to each other. There, set apart, they stood. Riel and the other had also survived. The tension between the two of them had reached a fever pitch right up until the crossing, and now a sudden stillness, a chill, had fallen over everything. Caught in the silence for a mome
The Remnant: Revelations part 2Its November 12th today. I have a lot on my mind tonight. The way the world ends is a huge topic of discussion among the minds of the world. From the idea shapers and thinkers of the day; to the stiff necked event oriented factualists; and even to the he said she said individuals... everyone has there take on how the world will end. Even for the minds who do not engage in the subject, they have their own ideas about it. Minus my talent for reading minds, I am one of them, so I understand. The ideas of "The End" for me stem from my dreams. I will admit that it's not hard science that I believe I see what is considered "the end" in my dreams. But to level the playing field, science is still not able to actually "show" my dreams to any one else either even to prove that dreaming in itself is real. It is just an accepted reality; because enough people seem to be able to do it, so it becomes easier to accept that dreaming is real. Also those who claim that they do not dream are just explain

“Don’t go, Leo,” Michelangelo whispered as he wrapped his arms around Leonardo’s neck, pulling the larger turtle down closer to him. Mikey hid his face in his mate’s neck. Leo closed his eyes and returned the strong embrace, nuzzling the side of Mikey’s head with his beak.
“I have no choice, Mikey. I can’t dishonor Master Splinter, I must go train as he orders. It’s only for a couple of months, Mikey. I’ll be back soon, I promise,” Leo tried to explain, but he knew it would not stop the young turtle’s tears. Leo kissed the top of Mikey’s head, causing Mikey to whimper and his arms tightened around Leo’s neck. Leo gently patted Mikey’s back, trying to sooth him
Onyx's Choice: Start
Part 1 (Start)
Work has become increasingly hard to come by. Most cities and city-states have enough willing bodies and readily turn away individuals like yourself; but Stonebridge has proven itself to be different, to be ready and able to take on new artisans to fuel its booming economy.
Unfortunately, “artisan” implies some form of skilled labor. Untrained and inexperienced, you have only one career path available to you – one that those of your disposition have inherited generation after generation: mercenary work. It doesn’t take much to lob a sword at someone; and by the same logic, it takes an equally low about of training to lob a sword at something.
Kelly, the Lord of Stonebridge, singled you out personally with an assignment the moment you passed through the gates. The details were unquestionably vague: there was a creature that lived a few miles west of the city that was causing problems for the populace. For all he told you it could be a rabid

Warnings: Light T-cest.
Universe: AU - Angels and Demons.
Characters(Main): Demon Leonardo, Angel Michelangelo, Demon Usagi.
Very little was said between the two turtles. Neither one of them knew what to say or do. They shared small smiles and gestures, letting each other know that they were comfortable but still a little unsure. Leonardo wanted nothing more than to apologize for his actions last night, while Michelangelo thought of every question he wanted to ask Leo.
They hadn’t moved since Mikey woke up. Leo was still sitting on the bed next to Mikey, leaning back against the headboard of the bed, his legs stretched out in front of him in a relaxing manner. Mikey was also leaning up against the headboard, his lower half still hiding under the covers and Leo’s shirt wrapped around him, keeping him nice and warm.
Mikey’s eyes widened as he heard Leo inhale d
Toon link x Reader Would you, maybe, like me?
Would you, maybe, like me?
Link belongs to Nintendo. You belong to you.
"Hoooyyy!! (Your name)-chan! Wait up!" A higher, chirpy sort of voice met your ears. Turning, you looked down to see none other than Toon Link, or Linkie as you internally called him, face plant into your thigh and stumble backwards. "Oof!" He mumbled, falling onto his butt. "H-hey, kid." You mumbled, glancing to the side a little. Standing up, the boy, who was surprisingly your age, grinned. "What're you doing today? I thought we could go watch Kargoraks or something -- Oh wait, never mind, I forgot I got rid of all of them! They can't steal your lunch money anymore!" He chirped once more, blushing a little. Driving a species, no matter it's intent, to extinction wasn't exactly… alluring. "G-Gee, thanks I guess. Sorry, I'm busy today. See ya, kid." You said, turning and walking away
Dark!Russia x Kidnapped!reader"Sunflower….Where have you gone?" You clasp a hand over your mouth trying desperately to silence your ragged breathing, as if even the smallest breath were to escape your lips, your location would be given away.
Your back flattens against the closet wall behind you and you fantasize of disappearing from this room, from this place. You dream that if you just believe in it hard enough you'll wake up in your old bed, and see your family for the first time in months.
"(Name), Come out. I don't like it when you hide from me, da." You felt a tear roll down your cheek and you bit your lip, containing a sob that could’ve possibly revealed your location to the Russian man you've come to know as your captor over the past few weeks.
Over the weeks, you'd been submissive to the man's will for the most part, but you just couldn't bring yourself to do that anymore. Tonight you’d felt something snap, you’d finally had enough of this, and the second he fell asleep you put your
Summary of EncephalonWAYWARD CITY-
sky: the darkest of red with jet black clouds. night and day are no different. the only weather change is when it rains... if it rains, you better stay in your house, especially if you're an Other.
rain: appears to be blood, which isn't uncommon in the city, but the rain is a sign of danger. if it starts to rain, get inside a building and lock AND block all entrances and windows, especially if you're an Other (as mentioned above). the reason is, when it rains, it summons a swarm of very strange and frightening spirits unlike anyone has ever seen. they're called collectors, and are said to come from hell itself. they wear black cloaks, resembling dementors from harry potter, except they can only hover a few inches off the ground. their hoods never come down, and you never see their faces. however, when close to its prey, incredibly long silver hair snakes out from beneath the hood and slowly flows toward the victim. if touched, the victim will be tangled in the hair, and t
The Unending NightmareLife is an interesting thing, unique in the universe. A series of chemical processes conducted in such a way that it serves as a conduit for élan vital, a form of "energy" which exists beyond the physical universe. In tiny quantities and in simple systems, élan vital has virtually no effect, but when a critical density is exposed to a very specific set of electrochemical reactions, it confers upon the living thing the gift of consciousness.
Élan vital is special in that it is not of the material universe. It is native to another universe "adjacent" to physical reality, an alternate dimension called the Etherium. Élan vital can only exist in conjunction with the particular chemical systems that exist in all living things; indeed, life is defined by the presence of élan vital within a chemical process. When these chemical systems fail, élan vital becomes unstable and is punted back into the realm from which it came; this process is more commonly
The RemnantSynopsis of "The Remnant":
As mankind grew in number across the face of the earth, they were visited upon by otherworldly beings. This chance encounter brought many advances to further the progress of man but soon afterwards, the world became darkened by a time of troubles. From this chaos and turmoil that threatened all life rose a people that fought back against the darkness, and came to be known to the world as champions. Inheritors of an alien legacy, these men and women were heralds of power and although they were descendants of an unknown ancestry, they chose to serve as living guardians to aid mankind; joining them to defend the world from the horrors and nightmares born of the chaos. In time, the conflict was brought to an end, the nightmares banished, and an age of peace and prosperity was established. Sacrificing themselves they allowed mankind to enjoy a peace for over two millennia, and without the need of heroes, the times of troubles were soon forgotten; while the memory
