STC: Gentlemen Prefer Orions: Chapter 66NereusJuly 11, 2269Nessa was at the door to greet Garadun when he entered Cera’s quarters, and the Orion gave him a tight hug to express her gratitude. She was clad in a morning robe made from Triaxian silk: midnight purple with black trim. It was the most casual thing he’d ever seen her wear, and she looked utterly amazing in it. He rubbed her back. “Morning,” he said quietly in Orion. “Good morning.” “She still angry with me?” “No, not anymore,” Nessa told him. “She knows we were right and she was wrong. I made sure of that. Thank you for what you did.” “Hey, no problem. I love her, too,” he said, smiling. Nessa kissed him on the cheek and motioned towards the study. Garadun took a breath, then strolled over to find Cera sitting in a chair and watching the fish in her huge aquariu
Stardust - Ch. 3 "See? Look at it." Jason said. "Normal dust doesn't form like that." "Well yeah, but..." Ty blinked, shifting his headphones so the fell off his ears and instead around his shoulders, connected by a wire to the iPod in his jeans pocket. "What, d'you think it means something?" "That's just it." Jason crouched down beside the perfect lines of dust on his bedroom floor. "I looked it up while you were daydreaming. It's binary code; coordinates." "Coordinates?" Ty asked. "To where?" "I don't know, but I intend to find out." Jason said. "I'm leaving to go in an hour." "What?" Ty exclaimed. "Jason, you can't just go, you have to bring some army man with you or..." Suddenly, Ty remembered the words from that weird guy... Who ironically sounded not like Martin Freeman now, but more like David Tennant. "What you gotta do is just let him go. Be smart about it, even though you're gonn
A World Apart - Ch. 10 - Latin Absurdities*Mitch* By the time I made it to school, I was a few minutes late and out of breath. I had taken my bow and arrows with me like Dreven had instructed and tossed them in my back yard before I booked it to Latin class. I shouldered my way through the door hurriedly. "Sorry I'm late Mr. Finley!" The class looked up. There were seven kids it looked like; less than a fourth of the Spanish class. Three that looked my age - potentially sophomores like me - sat at the front of the class at two long tables. Four more that looked older sat behind them at a collection of desks which were mostly empty. A boy in the back row, a taller one with platinum blonde hair, looked at Mr. Finley. "Mr. Finley, do we have a new student?!" "New student?" "Why on earth would he transfer to Latin..." "Yes. Yes, um..." The teacher stood. "This is Mitch. And thanks to him you all get a study hall while I catch him up."
Death Battle: Lord Tirek vs AlduinKiryu: Alright, the combatants are set. Let's end this debate once and for all.Gwangi: It's time for a Death Battle!!!***The ground shook and cracked as cloven hooves walked across it. These hooves were connected to a black pony-like body, which in turn was connected to a torso with arms and a head with curved horns.Lord Tirek traversed the land of Skyrim, the centaur having fed upon the magic of whatever being was foolish to face him overtime. Now, with the magic of Discord and the alicorns, all of this world would now bow to his will.A shadow appeared above Tirek, though, as the centaur looked up to see a black dragon flying overhead. The dragon turned in a wide circle as he landed atop a rocky outcropping, before he glared at Tirek with red eyes full of menace.“Hin sil fen nahkip bahloki,” Alduin stated in his native tongue, the World Eater unafraid of Tirek's presence.“Your language speaks nothing to me,” Tirek responded. “I, Lord
A World Apart - Ch. 9 - Science and Magic*Mitch* "So you use a bow?" I shrugged. "Eh... I try to." "That's cool. You should shoot something." "I was planning on it." I said. "When we actually found something." I sighed. "Maybe we should head back." "No way! We've only been out for thirty minutes!" "Well how long does the dawn patrol go till?" "Depends on the patrol." Bashur smirked a little. "Most go thirty minutes. Slackers, I call 'em. Never stay out long enough to get the load! We stay out until noon!" "Noon?!" "Totally!" Bashur cackled. He suddenly perked up. "Shh!" "I didn't say-" "SHHHHHHHHHHHHHH." As Bashur hissed, he clapped a hand over my mouth, glaring at me. "SHH." I stared at him in confusion as he suddenly let go and ran off through the woods. Instead of following, I stood still for a moment, then took off away from the trail, fleeing the psychotic
Thalia's Tale - Ch. 37 - A Low Point "What are we gonna do?" Thalia asked. "They must've fallen off the roof, that's the only way they could be missing!" "They could've fallen off the front and sucked under the wheels." Vern pointed out. Thalia stared at him. "Thank you for that charming image." She said sarcastically. "But how are we gonna finish the mission with half our team gone?!" "We go on without them." Vern said. He shoved the ignition lever forwards and the train lurched forward, slowly picking up speed. Thalia stared at him. "Is that it then?" She said. "Do you care about Clancy that little?" "He's not dead, Vaerin, he doesn't just die." Vern sighed. "He has a way of bouncing back. Besides. Our duty is to this mission. We can't stay here, and we can't go back. We have to keep going without them." "I don't think you get it." Thalia said. "Have you ever been on a mission where one of your comrades die?" "No but
