Chinese New FormsChinese New Forms by Pheagle-Adler
I had never seen so many lights in my entire life; this was truly amazing! My monkey friend Sirge had asked me to come and hang out with him on Chinese New Years. I had never seen Chinatown so alive before, with so many lights and so many colors. Various lanterns were spread out across the vistas, and many performers were on the street doing their best to entertain the gathering crowds. It was truly a sight to behold! Sirge and I made our way to the middle of the fairgrounds. As we made our way down there, I noticed many people stopping to shake Sirge's hand or take pictures.
I scratched at my head out of confusion, as I had no clue to how Sirge had become so popular. "Hey, why are you so popular around here, monkey?" The monkey chuckled as he looked at me. "It's because I greatly resemble the Monkey King from a famous Chinese novel named "Journey to the West". Everyone thinks that I'm wearing a really convincing costume or that I'm his heavenly avatar reborn. It gets me free f

Screaming drifted up from the forest floor, threatening to shatter the century old glass of the arched window that stared out over the scene.
“No Susan, I’m sorry,” Amadahy Love found herself reluctantly saying into the cordless clamped between ear and shoulder as she cast a casual eye over the chaos below her. “It’s not the danger. I have been there before you know. I just have too much on my plate at the moment. You know I would love to go with you. Oh, Drake is doing fine. But he’s at that complicated age, and with my promotion and the Super expanding the department.”
The afternoon sun slanted through the conifer canopy and lit the large second story kitchen with a warm glow. The woman shifted the phone as she stood over the sink and smiled out the window, latex-gloved hands letting the bait satchel slide back into the pot of carrion. The youth in question was just finishing running

Dying Embers Prologue
The pain-bringer would come again.
The pain came in waves one upon the next.
Something in her called out to the points of light she could feel through the suffering; points that she could never see or touch.
There was awareness, a deep understanding that there was more than this never ending cycle of pain and fear. That something should be filling the deep aching emptiness inside of her. There was awareness, but little more.
Harold and Lanna (Ch. 1.5)Harold awoke with a start. The burn on his leg was acting up again, and upon investigation he saw why- He had rolled over in his sleep so that a rather sharp-looking stone was pressing squarely on the tender centre of his outer left ankle. He quickly turned over onto his right side so that the wound would no longer be supporting weight. He looked proudly at the dressing he'd fashioned from a broad leaf. While his body attempted to heal the burn, that would at least keep things from rubbing against it. Without the pain in his ankle clouding his mind, Harold began examine his surroundings.Harold and Lanna (Ch. 1.5) by TheUniversalUnion
Crickets were chirping all around, so loudly that Harold wondered how he hadn't been woken up sooner. He was lying on the forest floor with his blanket on top of him. He was wearing his undershirt and his mess trousers, while his coat was draped over the bulge in the tail of the Naga sleeping a few feet away from him.
Lanna was still fast asleep, her tail in a gentle coil round the large bulge that had

The snare drums beat out an unrelenting rhythm that matched the footfalls of the deep blue-coated soldiers as they stepped along the path. The troop column contained about 200 men, and as such was 5 men wide and 40 men long. They stepped in unison to the beat of the drum as they marched through the Great Central Forest to meet the rest of the Army and engage the Eastern Kingdom at Blutigenberg.
Harold Talmann was in the third rank, second from the right. His feet ached- They had set out from Ostfestung two days ago, and aside from the time spent sleeping, had been marching ever since. His firelock grew heavier in his arms with each passing hour, his pack straining his shoulders.
The war with the Eastern Kingdom had begun four months ago, and hadn't made any real progress yet. Harold wasn't sure why the war had started- Something about sorcery, or some such nonsense. Humans couldn't do it. Supposedly the

- MISSION TO MARS -
To say that they were not all feeling some manner of trepidation would have been disingenuous: all were quite aware of the myriad things that could go wrong before they even left the ground, but it was tempered by a firm optimism. Indeed, being surrounded by Americans, it was the kind of relentless hopefulness that made one slightly bitter. Why couldn't all people be as miserable as her rainy backwater island, Emma thought. Though she was not ungrateful to be here – far from it. Ahead of her was the greatest journey carrying the greatest responsibility in the history of humanity. It was a bright, clear day in Florida in the year 2023. Much as she hesitated to admit it, Emma Arianna Thompson was entering the third decade of her life. It seemed she had been half that age half as long ago, like the years hadn't passed her by as she ran on autopilot in ferocious pursuit of her dream career. But now she had attained
love at first sssight 10She woke up to the gentle breeze that blew into her window, wait she thought as she looked around, she couldn’t believe it, she was in her room, in her bed no less, she got out of her bed and looked out of her window, everything looked right .love at first sssight 10 by Celestiafad
“Nana” she said as she left her room, she hurried down the hallway as she peeped into her room, the elderly woman was fast asleep in her bed.
With a smile, she walked back to her room and leaned out of her window as she thought, where he, was where did he go, why did he leave her alone.
“roman, where did you go” she said, but as she looked up into the forest, she could swore that she saw two glowing lights that died out when she looked at them. Without thinking, she ran down the stairs, out of the house and straight back into the forest.
“Roman, where are you” she called out as she ran into a clearing, as she stood there the sun began to rise over the horizon, she rubbed her cheek only to realise that she
Who knew? Part 14*This is all Lock's point of view*Who knew? Part 14 by DevilChicky210
It had been nearly two months since the day at the lake, (trying to explain how my species works), and it was only a few hours until I hit final maturity. If I were to look at a clock or a watch, at about 10pm tonight It will happen. I've told Cassie this as well and...
She's agreed to be mine. She's 21, nearly 22 in a few more months. Some may think she's still does not have a university degree but she does, she's a licensed physiotherapist and a brilliant woman. I need to plan this, we've both agreed to tell her family, and that's where we are now. I'm watching her talk with her family outside her family home, Arthur trying to put his arm around her waist. He's even wearing a suit? Wait.... Roses, suit and her whole family is smiling. The air flowing in my direction was heavy, anger, hate, tension. Gods I do not like where this is going. I moved closer, I can hear them now, I could be seen if they only look in my direction. This is what I
Two Souls One Heart Chapter 1 Meeting DasThe night was silent except for a few night birds and crickets. The moon was high in the night sky and full as its beams shimmered on the lake in the forested valley. Walking alongside that lake was a beautiful dragoness. She had light blue scales with purple stripes down her legs and back. She had darker blue horns with the tips of her wings being purple. She also had a spear at the end of her tail the same dark blue as her horns. Her name was Sassy. Walking along the lake at night was one of the things she loved to do enjoying the beauty of the moon and stars as they were reflected on the water. This night as she was walking along, she suddenly heard something. Turning her head she saw something moving on the other side of the lake. It appeared to be a young dragon about her size and age. Listening she thought she heard grunts of pain coming from this young male dragon. She hurried toward him to help. WhenTwo Souls One Heart Chapter 1 Meeting Das by SassyDragon18
Paid Vacation off, huh?Laurane hated train rides because they had almost no room for her books. She was obsessive over myths, especially Mayan, Incan and Aztec ones. Lucky for her, the train ride was short, and she and her boyfriend, Chase, were dropped off atop a mountain.Paid Vacation off, huh? by Zayata
"So Laurane?" Chase said, "All that work was worth it, wasn't it? You finally managed to save up for this trip. With my help, of course."
"Shut your hole. You gave me 12 cents."
"Uh-huh. Move the decimal over "
Laurane gave chase a soft shoulder-punch, "Just, don't ruin our PAID vacation off, okay?" Chase grinned, "I won't, so where this tourist group we're supposed to find?" Good question; neither Laurane nor Chase knew where to go. Off to the left was a valley, to the right was a mountain. A group of what seemed to be native walked over to the couple and said, "Are you two here for the tour?" Chase and Laurane looked at each other, and then back at the group and nodded. "Great!" the mysterious group said in unison, "Foll
The day I became a Naga (willow) ContestThe day I became a Naga (Willow)The day I became a Naga (willow) Contest by ADFTlove
I was sleeping. And it was dark. I felt a deep cool air down my neck, it was cold and also...comforting. I lived on a mountain and it was cold during the night, especially during the winter. I opened my eyes I looked out the window sitting on my bed. I pushed my hair away from my face and walked towards the window slowly. I thought I saw something move but I still kept walking towards the window. I opened the window slowly then, I poked my head out and looked around...nothing I sighed. I was about to close the window but then WHAM! I was tackled I gasped but not scream. I looked at right in front of me was. I sighed again.
"Really?" I said but I smiled
he chuckled then kissed my forehead "I can't help myself sweet heart," he hissed softly to me.
He slithered off of me. I looked at him still lying there on the ground. His eye's glowed yellow that could hypnotize you under his charming spell. His primary fangs were nice and white that he could pierce your
The Queen... Have you ever had one of those days where everything didn't go the way you had intended? Yeah well that's what happened to me. My name is Alex. Alex Jackson. I was a normal 18 year old kid. I was 5' 5" yeah I know short for an 18 year old. I had short red hair since I had to keep it cut due to Marine Corps regulations. I was a veteran in Iraq as well as an archeologist and musician. I was climbing in my home town of Mountain Valley. Yeah lame name I know. But it was named after being founded in the middle of a mountain valley. I was on a trip up one of the mountains. I didn't much care for the whole hi tech ways of getting up the mountain. So I decided to dust of my rock climbing gear and start climbing.The Queen... by sonicexcel
I was wearing my red polo with khaki pants. I had my main bag with my tools on my back while I hung my carrying bag for any artifacts I found on my right shoulder. As the day started to heat up I was already half way up the mountain. I rea
Nathan's TFNathan's TransformationNathan's TF by KatzeFalke-Sergal
Nathan was out front of his house. He was a shorter blond kid. He had some friends, as was to be expected from a twelve year old who always stayed at the same school. But he never did much with them, however today was different. He was waiting for a friend to come pick him up.
A few minutes later, his friend's mom pulled up in their car. Nathan opened the door to the house and yelled. "Mom! They're here, I'm going now!" He closed the door and ran off the porch, excided to go to his friend's. He walked to his friend's car, he got in and buckled up as the car drove away.
Nathan got out of the car after his friend. The car was parked in the garage, so they had a clear shot to their bikes. Glad they didn't have to run through the house first, they got on their respectable bike, putting their helmets on.
Nathan was first to ride out, his friend catching up. They rode down the street, making the next turn, going further into the neighborhood. This new road went straig
Comparison: Naga/LamiaA comparison between the most numerous of each species- Naga vulgaris and Lamia vulgaris, respectively.Comparison: Naga/Lamia by TheUniversalUnion
Both the Naga and the Lamia are believed to be descended from a common ancestor, the Serpent-people of the Great Central Forest. The origin of the Serpent-people is unknown, but capacity for interbreeding suggests a common origin with the humanoid races.
The Naga species was born by interbreeding with humans. They have far more humanoid characteristics than the Lamia do, and grow to larger sizes. Due to their human heritage, they have very little capacity for sorcery. Unlike the Lamia, who left the Great Central Forest in large numbers with the elves when they migrated to the Outer Mountains, the Nagas still reside in their ancestral homeland.
The Lamia species was born by interbreeding with elves, but retaining far more snakelike characteristics than the Nagas did. Many Lamia are now found residing in the Outer Mountains, gone to live in proximity to the
Top 10 Mythical/Legendary/Fantasy CreaturesAs you all know, Halloween is the time of the year where we like to dress up as the creatures that go bump in the night. It’s also the time of year where that we tell our favourite scary stories or watch a few horror movies. For me, I tend to look back on the creatures of mythology, legend and from fantasy.Top 10 Mythical/Legendary/Fantasy Creatures by dollysistersmassacre
As it’s the season to be scared witless, I’ve compiled at list of the creatures of legend and mythical monsters that left the biggest impression on me.
So, dress up in your best Halloween costume and prepare to eat some sweeties, this is dollysistersmassacre’s Top 10 Mythical/Legendary/Fantasy Creatures!
10: Dridders/Arachne. Now, the reason why they’re somewhat low on the list because I’ve only discovered them recently.

The Furry DragonThe Furry Dragon by Lady-Scorpion
The Furry Dragon is know for being one of the rarest species in the world, this kind of dragon have fur instead of scales, they also have the size of a full grown horse, but the males can grow more than that, their claws can be extended, it’s also strong enough to cut metal. This kind of dragons can also stretch their wings until the double of their own size, giving them an incredible speed; these dragons are also known for being extremely aggressive to strangers, despise their very passive nature.
How to train a Furry Dragon:
One of the aspects of this kind of creature is that they don’t trust people very easily; you needed to prove that you don’t mean any harm to them, if there’s something that they appreciate more is loyalty.
You also need to be patient to this kind of dragon; they’re not very easy to domain.

ariela chap 1 Chapter 1ariela chap 1 by love4peace2001
I was born in a great forest were dragons lurked everywhere. I grew up by myself though, because my parents were killed by humans who though my kind was evil but really we where kind hearted creatures. As I grew up, more and more dragons where killed till there were only three dragons left me ariela, Carly, and chiro we were the last dragons left or so I thought.
To start out I’ll tell you from the beginning. I ran as fast as I could trying to lift of and fly away to a place were I wouldn’t be hunted and killed (but like I said I didn’t have any parents to teach me growing up) I tried for the third time to take off (which ended with my face in the ground) when I heard a wise voice say “straiten your wings and wait for a breeze, then take off” at first I didn’t know if
