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

Papa!2P!Italy x Child!Reader Chap 3
Slowly you woke up as your father walked. He was singing something softly in Italian to you. You nuzzled into him and yawned. Luciano smiled to himself. He absolutely adored you, as a father should their daughter. He quietly began to hum as he neared your intended destination.
He knocked on the door, cradling you and cuddling. The only time any one would ever see Luciano like this was when you were around. I guess you could say your presence soothed the devil that lived inside him.
Lutz opened the door a minute after your father knocked. Lutz was the personification of Germany, and to be honest, he sort of scared you. You buried yourself against your father as he greeted his comrade. Lutz stepped aside and Luciano waltzed in with you in his arms.
Kuro was already there. He was the personification of Japan, and remember how Lutz scared you? Well Kuro absolutely terrified you. Your father greeted Kuro and sat on the couch, cuddling you. Kuro rolled his eyes. He’d g
Mal's Return Part 1 It had been a year since Mike's personalities had disappeared from his mind. Though he was sad and shocked at first, he learned to overcome it and control his new, learned emotions. There were times however when he would wait for them to come back, like ripping his shirt in vain hoping to see Vito, or donning his fedora to be Manitoba. Mike had also started dating Zoey, and today was their one-year anniversary.
Mike and Zoey were sitting on a bench in the park, the night air still. "Zoey." Mike said, turning to her. "Did you ever think about my old personalities? I mean, it's lonely in my head without them." Zoey only giggled back. Mike nodded, aware. Yeah. It's silly to miss them, I mean, I still have their abilities. "Well, at least I have you, Zoey." he leaned over to her and kissed her. They smiled at each other silently for a second before standing up. As Mike stood, her put his hands to his temples. "Woo, feeling a bit woozy there." he laughed h
FireClan Assignment - The Return HomeAfter months of shamefully living in MoonClan territory, Kindlestar had finally been able to lead her clan back to their original territory... but the price to pay was high, and much work needed to be done before their camp was once more the sanctuary in the middle of the gorge that they could call home. Apprentices heading out with their mentors for training and assessments, kits bewildered by the strange, harsh environment they were now living in, and elders once more complaining about the heat... although a hint of a smile could be seen in their eyes... it was obvious that the clan was trying to re-adapt as much as they could. There were some cats, however, that had been unable to do much since they had arrived. The ones who had been left behind, wounded by the snake's poison and at the brink of death. Wanting to see how these cats were fairing, Kindlestar had left Twopelt in charge of the patrols while she headed towards Emberstripe's den.
"How are they doin
Neko!Sweden x Reader Chpt 3 It had been a long month of work and enjoying your time with the cat. Elizaveta had come over to your house bringing another cat along that was going to be adopted soon. She was taking care of it personally since it had an injury. So while Berwald played with the little kitten, more like the kitten messed with him while he napped, you and Elizaveta got some things for Berwald's birthday. You figured he deserved some kind of little kitty party or something. He'd put up with your shenanigans for a long time and it was time to give back. So you and Elizaveta were out picking up a nice salmon for him to eat and birthday decorations. You two even bought him gifts as well, as if he was a little kid more then just a house pet.
"I'm sure he'll be so surprised by this! This will be the first time anyone has celebrated his birthday." Elizaveta cooed as she pushed the bags over her shoulder. You smiled at her as the two of you walked back home.
"Do you think he'll hide
Neko!ItalyxReader Wish Upon a StarOkay I’m doing this request to show I’m not totally dead, just a bit out there. Finals are next week so I’ve been studying my little American ass off. Okay my big American ass off. So that’s why it’s been pretty quiet story wise. I am in the works of thinking up chapter ten of the War series, I might be working on something else, *mystery sparkles*and I’m working on my cosplays and getting my bf to do some cosplay. So I’m not dead I swear, just really busy as hell! So this is a nice request for one of my fans who is obsessed with cats and Italy more than I was when I first started watching Hetalia.

No way out Creepypasta X Reader Chapter 4“come on (F/N)! you can help us decide how big a threat they are!” Vince said, his voice dripping with a sadistic enthusiasm
“uh…ok I guess. It is my job after all. right?” you replied, trying to come off as being as on his side as possible ‘don’t want him getting suspicious after all’ you thought
“right! Let’s go”
Vince led you out of the restricted section, past most of the cells you’ve already visited, and to a door you don’t recall seeing on your way in. a struggle could be heard from inside, urging you to hurry. You didn’t even wait for Vince to open the door, you were already in.
What you were met with, both shocked and appalled you. five nurses were desperately trying to calm down two people who you assumed to be new patients. One was very tall, somewhere between 6-7 feet tall in fact, brown shaggy hair, and a stubbly beard. He was wearing a teal T-shirt and baggy blue jeans, but what you notice
Introducing: The Jackalopes pt. 3
Although their ancestors seem to have been fairly ordinary looking generalist ornithopods, Laurasiornithopoda of today consist of three highly derived clades, each adapted to a very different lifestyle. The jackalopes (Struthiodactylidae) have remained most true to their ancestors' lifestyle, being small fleet-footed grazers or low-browsers although they've taken the running lifestyle to its extremes, while the vanguards (Vanguardidae) have become huge plodding armoured tanks that echo the nodosaurs of old. Even stranger still are the duckongs (Laticanatidae) which have taken to a new element, paddling in rivers and oceans like weird duck-manatee-hybrids, while being clumsy and near helpless when they venture on land out of the necessity to lay their eggs.
The Earliest fossils of animals with recognizably struthiodactylid characters appear in the fossil record in the Early Eocene, but these ani
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
