The Deep End Ch.2
Just as the rangers put on their sunscreen, James, Emily, and Rico jump into the shallow end of the pool, as the water goes up to James' chest, Emily's chest, and Rico's neck. "The water is pretty refreshing," Emily states as she slicks back her wet and shiny black hair as she sneers. "I have no idea what Sasha's talking about" James remarks. He later turns to Sasha, who's sitting in a deck chair depressingly staring in the water along with Tabitha, who is laying on her sunbed reading a novel. Susan is with her daughter Allison in the kiddy pool, watching her play with her teddy bear wearing arm floaties and a duck tube for extra safety.
Sasha sits in the deck chair being very lonely and feeling doubt, so she goes to visit Susan for advise about how to approach the water. "M-Mrs. Bristol?" Sasha asks politely, but nervously. "Do you want help with water, Sasha?" Susan asks back with delight. "H-how'd you know?". Susan laughs as she rubs herself with sunscreen. "Silly Sasha, in the car
The Red ReaperIt is October 23rd, so the weather is forty-five degrees Fahrenheit. Due to the weather, Harris is forced to wear a leather jacket over a white collared shirt, along with brown slacks. He is walking to the public library, which is where the murder took place. Police Officer Matthew Norris waits for him. He is somewhat overweight, yet hunched for a police officer. However, he is slightly taller than Harris, who’s 5’9”, but doesn’t quite have the bravery.
“Why, hello there, Officer Norris” Harris remarks positively. “This place looks normal, isn’t it?”. “This isn’t a laughing matter. One of our best scientists, named Dr. John Harway...has vanished. Right after he vanished, some civilian called 911, and that’s where we came in,” Norris whispers nervously as he pushes up his large glasses. “This is unlike anything we’ve encountered, so-”. “Norris, please,” Harris interrupts rud
Folly of Man“We knew the world would not be the same, a few people laughed, few people cried, a few people went silent. I remember reading the Hindu scripture, the behavaghad-gita, that Vishnu persuaded the prince to do his duty. To impress him, he takes on his multi-armed form, and says ‘Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.”-Robert J. Oppenheimer
In case you guys forgot, I am Staff Sergeant Franklin Paddock of the 251st division, at least how I remember it. I’m in what used to be San Francisco, California. Not anymore. It has become a wasteland, like we’ve been hit by two H-bombs; thousands mangled, many buildings crushed into oblivion, and the smell of flesh being burnt on concrete. Along the roads, there are also footprints the size of a soccer field, creating large sinkholes that is filled with contaminated water. There is also no vegetation, as the soil is contaminated with radiation. It has been a long time since I’ve looked at my reflecti
Bullet Rangers, Chapter 16, Revenge is Sweet
Monday, October 6th, 11:12 AM, Peranel County, Alostet, Empire City, Emrovia
It is officially the first day of Natroska’s regime, where she turned the theocracy of Emrovia into a communist/fascist nation. Many of the reptiles, aka Saraxians were forced into work camps, where all they do is chip away a chunk of rock until it is in the wolf’s image. If they screw up one little detail, they get capped in the head in a quick and painless death. However, if they refuse to work, they get hanged in public. The blue and black flag has vanished, and replaced with a more sinister black banner that is tainted with a red spider-like emblem.
Right now, James is walking alone in Paranel County, a small suburban part of Alostet that is flooded with fast-food restaurants and department stores. Thirty minutes ago, James bought a couple of groceries to support his family, as Susan is in a meeting with the supreme court. What he bought at the store were painkillers for Tif

~Epiphany~ Levi x Reader Chapter 1
"It hurts, doesn't it?"
"A little," Eren responded.
You alone entered what looked to be a sitting room, with three people wearing jackets emblazoned with the wings of freedom on their jackets. Erwin had led you to the room, then claimed that he had some business to take care of, leaving you to bravely enter the room alone. Off to the side sat Eren, on a couch and having his wounds tended to by a woman with glasses and a brunette ponytail. Not like he really needed it. Most of his injuries were already healed, and the ones that weren't were halfway there.
Eren jumped up when he saw you. "_____!" he blurted out, rushing over to you and grabbing you in a tight hug. "It feels like I haven't seen you in years," he whispered in your ear.
"Ow, ow, watch the head," you said, cringing when he accidentally nudged your head.
Pulling away, he looked at you questioningly, taking in your thinner appearance and the shadows beneath your eyes. "What happened to you?"
"Hit my head at Trost," you said, w
~Epiphany~ Levi x Reader Chapter 2
Something warm took hold of your hands, comforting you in your troubled sleep. Grasping whatever it was touching you, you pulled yourself closer to the warmth. Funny, it felt sort of like someone's hands...
Your eyes suddenly opening wide, you found yourself cuddling the hands of whoever it was sitting next to your bed. Eyes tracing up the arms you had stolen, you found yourself staring into stormy eyes, gracing you with a faint trace of concern.
"Corporal Levi!" you exclaimed, jerking away. What a wonderful reason to have to explain to your superior that you cuddled things in your sleep.
Disoriented, you gazed about the small hospital room you were in. How did I get here? you thought vaguely. Then the memories of the trial and the conversation afterwards came rushing back to you. With a groan, you laid back on the flat pillow and covered your face with your hands.
"How long was I out this time?" you asked, almost afraid to know.
"About half a day," he responded curtly, crossing his ar

"_____? Can you hear me, _____?"
"I don't think she's awake."
"But-but she needs to get up!" This voice belonged to a high pitched male. "She has to come to Eren's trial. She has vital information that they'll need to hear!"
"Trial?" you murmured, slowly waking up. "What's Eren having a trial for? The only thing I remembered him killing was titans." Then you jerked up out of bed. "Holy shit! Eren is a titan, too!" You looked at the two people standing by you, who were Mikasa and Armin. "We need to go!" A momentary spasm of pain burst through your head, but it was nowhere near as bad as it had once been. Still, it was enough to make you cringe.
"Slow down," Mikasa said, placing a hand on your shoulder, steadying you as well as holding you in a sitting position on your bed. "You've been asleep for a week with a concussion. Moving around suddenly isn't a good idea."
"I've been out that long?" you asked, confused. You had been awake last night, tossing and turning in your bed, but you'd on
~Epiphany~ Levi x Reader PREMISE!
That damned room was so fucking claustrophobic. Sighing as you twisted around in the hospital bed, you winced when a bolt of pain shot through your head.
"Oh, hell," you whispered, wincing in pain. You wondered if this is what your mother had felt that night, so many years ago. Or was it worse? The thought echoed in your mind as the memory flashed through your mind, incapable of forgetting it.
"Momma? Why are you sending me to bed so early?" five-year-old you had asked, wrapping your small hands in your mother's skirt.
She smiled at you fretfully. "I've got something I need to do before I go back to work tomorrow, dear," she had said, her smile looking strained.
"Aw, you have to go back to work?" you sighed, your small, childish face twisting into an adorable pout. "The survey corps never lets you have long breaks, do they mother?"
"Well, if I succeed at what I plan on doing, I'll be on a permanent break, honey," she said, picking you up and setting you on you bed, tucking you in betwe
A Naga's Daughter (Chapter one)It wasn't fair, why did she have to be this way, why did it have to be her? The naga slithered about her and her mate's bedroom chamber, a worried look in her face. She was in a position that put her into a deep despair, she was unable to bear children and it broke her heart, the situation being very discouraging for both her and her mate.
The naga who's name was Josephine had fallen into a deep depression because of it. Her mate Vladimir was saddened to see her like this, he knew she had always wanted to be a mother, and it crushed him to see her hopes and dreams shattered so easily. It wasn't long ago that they learned that Josephine was barren and unable to have any children on her own. After receiving the bad news for a solid week she was inconsolable as she sobbed in their bedroom.
Vlad peeked into the room to see her pacing, he pushed the door open and entered. His golden-amber eyes sweeping over Josephine's voluptuous form, he approached his black scaled mate.
"How are you feeli
The Close CallConnor sat on the dirty floor of the abandoned shopping complex. Hard to believe this place was once a bustling center of merchandise. He glanced again at the darkened floors of the human side. Jane had told him she'd just be a few minutes to explore. He agreed there was a thrill about being out here, where only bums or daredevils had the guts to come on a no-trespassing property. But he was selfish, and wanted his girlfriend to pay more attention to him than these crusty old floor boards. He ran a hand through his close-cropped dirty blonde hair and let out a puff of impatient air.
"Jay, would you hurry up? I'm falling asleep out here."
Conner's crazy deep voice echoed through the bare brick walls. The building itself was older than its last retail occupants, and she was severely in love with its old world, industrial charm. Jane grinned a huge smile and shook her head. Glee and a deeply loving feeling washed through her.
"Good Lord babe!" She yelled back. Walking to an opening
Existence 2. The Gryphon (tf)
The girl barked with laughter and fell over thrashing, and clutching her sides. Red mist streamed around her, small and olive skinned with narrow black eyes and long twisting dark hair, dressed in her usual little orange dress.
Ollie harrumphed and looked away, his hand feeling his scalp in disbelief. There was no hair except light fuzz, the colour he couldn’t be sure of, but it certainly wasn’t his usual black locks. The rest of his body felt wrong too, his build was broader and shorter than usual, than how he was meant to be, just like had happened to Karen when she took the veil potion and changed human. Jess found the entire thing hilarious, she hadn’t laughed all day, but now she was rolling on the floor in a fit of giggles at his sour expression.
“Can’t you make a potion that doesn’t make us baldy? You’re a wizard, you’re meant to be good at magic!” He complained, looking at the mage-boy who was sitting on a rock in the
The Tribute - Prologue
The sun reflected with near-blinding intensity off of shifting sands amidst a strong and merciless wind. Prince Voran, standing motionless atop the hovercraft’s canopied surface desk, wore no protective eyewear; part of him, fueled by his inner fury carried with it the hope that the sun’s dazzling rays, or the eternally blowing sand actually would blind him, so that he would never have to look upon the face of his arranged bride. But meet her he would. His fate was as certain as the caravan’s eventual arrival at the well of Sessalgnus.
This journey felt like an end to his kingdom, a final reminder of his lost world since his father had passed the sentence: his last taste of the sumptuous nectars of the rose palms and the succulent flesh of lamb and cattle spiced with seasonings reserved only for royalty, his last satisfying roll among silken sheets with perfumed brothel girls
Sonic Fanfic CastHello everyone, I have both good news and bad news. The bad news is that I'm cancelling my reimagining of the Sonic series. The good news is that I'm writing a fanfic series that has almost all of the Sonic characters. A lot of the characters are going to be reimagined when it comes to backstory and design. Some of them might be more powerful than others.
Basically, the story takes place in an alternate universe where there was a civil war between the Freedom Fighters and the Supression Squad, where it has started because of the fear and paranoia of a future apocalypse by the mysterious alien race known simply as "M". Robotnik, the leader of the Squad gives his political ally Natroska Ivanova a nuke Mobotropolis to rebuild it in his image. During a foiled detonation; most of the heroes and villains accidentally disappear to an alternate dimension where Sonic and the fighters have taken control of Mobius and rule it with an iron fist, with a mentally troubled yet vengeful Sonic taking t
HomesickI am the river's son,
my arteries flowing turquoise
and turning to rapids
rushing around my frame,
filling me with this sense
of buoyancy, minnows
tickling my sternum.
I am the river's son.
My palms caress each
silty shoreline, every
battered bank and bend,
and these places I know
so well become me
as my fingerprint,
even the bridge above me
inflamed by the afternoon
sun-glow, burning rusty and
the steel blue sky.
I am the river's son;
I bring my home along
like hermit crab,
where I step
I pull water from the earth.
