Becoming the Eagle [TF]The Avian Way
Jason was uneasy.
This was somewhat of an understatement. Having been left on his own by his allies on an alien planet, and with no idea how to operate the ship to get home again, in a mission that seemed increasingly suspicious the more he thought about it, it seems increasingly likely that uneasy was the baby cousin of the word needed to describe how he felt.
Nah, terrified wasn't really accurate, it wasn't like he was sobbing in fear. Jason had never really been terrified of anything. Perhaps... lost. Lost and alone, with all that that entailed.
Six months ago, Jason had been chosen to go on an expeditio
Each to Each"Shall I part my hair behind? Do I dare to eat a peach?
I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.
I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.
I do not think that they will sing to me.
I have seen them riding seaward on the waves
Combing the white hairs of the waves blown back
When the wind blows the water white and black
We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown."
-excerpt from "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" by T. S. Eliot
It was Maria’s turn to feed Sessyne.
She was nervous as she made her way down the metal, spiral stairway leading to the lower levels of the floating research facility and colony where she lived. She knew well enough that this day would eventually come, and her name would be selected to visit the home of the Ichthyian who lived in the bottom le
Something's got to Give
Gordon Martin lay on the bed that had been the center of his world for the last few months. At least he thought it had been months. There were no windows and no clocks in his room, so he wasn’t sure the exact amount of time that had passed. To the left of the bed was the desk that he ate his meals at. To the right was the commode and sink. And at the end of the bed was the bell cord. He couldn’t go further than that due to the collar attached to a chain around his neck. The room wasn’t uncomfortable. It was kept clean and he was fed well, but that didn’t change the fact it was a prison.
He sat up and looked at the cor
Peace for Lonely Monsters: Mercy
The sounds of laughing children filled his ears. They were playing and laughing as children should. It always softened his hearts to hear children being children, enjoying their childhood before they learnt the cold harsh reality of the universe.
He lowered his head, averting his green-grey eyes, so often filled with sadness and loneliness at times. He couldn’t help but let the negative thoughts seep in. After more than, [a thousand was it? He’d lost count by now] centuries of seeing so many people die, both good and bad, he couldn’t help it. No matter how much he wanted to. Death was never to far from his mind, nor was it
It Only has to Happen OnceA large, green creature zipped through the sky. It had four wings, which flapped independently, calmly making its way through the iron jungle, past all the tall buildings. She wore an old shirt with two holes cut in the back for her upper wings which fluttered in the wind, and her hair fluttered as she calmly drifted through the cloudless morning.
With a flap, she closed her wings and latched on to the side of an old building, holding herself up using her hands and her frontal legs’ talons, with three front-pointing fingers and one large thumb pointing back, all with small claws on them. Her rear leg’s feet were more similar to t
Legend of Earth: Chapter 5: Destiny Discovered
Tom carried on walking further into the woods now that the danger had passed for him. Andrew was gone, as well as the ash bear. Tom could think of only one thing, the ash bear must be chasing Andrew still. Tom immediately started running, determined to find his endangered friend. The jungle seemed to go on forever, and the further he ran the further the ground became damper. He could see rain clouds ahead of him, passing away. If Andrew was running this way, then there was chance he would slip and get caught! Tom ran as fast as his new legs would carry him. He bombed through the jungle like an athlete, his mechanical legs effortlessly boundin
BP SQ Book 1 Chapter 10"Blah" Normal Talk
-Blah- Comm. Link
Blah Thinking to Oneself or Emphasis…you should be able to figure it out~
Blah Foreign Language. Don't know if I'll be using this one alot but its bears mentioning.
Blah Vocal binary....you'll understand once you get there.
Everyone in the Decker Room, maybe even in the entire police station, jumped at the loud and lengthy cry.
“What was that!?” Toudou barked.
“That was Deckerd!” Yuuta gasped. “I’ve never heard him scream like that before.”
“Something’s up, co
Flitting Through the CosmosReaka had a mantra: 'Always call their bluff.' It didn't matter what the stakes were or whether they beat you anyway. All that mattered was that they had misjudged you.
And that was exactly how she ended up in this situation, hurtling through the cosmos in the cumulative efforts of the best and brightest of Earth's rocket scientists and engineers. They'll never go through with it, she had thought, It's far too risky to waste the equipment.
Well she had been wrong about that.
She swiped at a few dials and tried to ignore all the warning lights that were flashing at her. It was probably worth it. A guy that pretty needs to be enjoyed more th
CAMERON MEETS STAR (Dragon Vore)(Warning: Vore and near digestion)
Ally, a purple dragoness with a white underbelly, had left Dragon City every day for a week to see her human friend, Cameron. Star, a white dragoness and Ally's step-sister, had noticed her absense and decided to follow her. Ally flew to a forest were her and Cameron usually met and landed. Star landed nearby and hid behind some trees. 'What is Ally doing?' Star thought. The she saw Cameron walk through some bushes and over to Ally. "Hey, Ally," Cameron said, "Want to have lunch?" "You mean you?" Ally joked and started licking him. "No. I meant, would like some fish," he said, "Then me." Ally smiled and sai
Happy birthday Merrit!"What could be worse in the morning after the holiday?" Thought Lorraine Shepard, slowly regaining consciousness. She slowly and cautiously opened her eyes, squinting in the sunlight that dazzled even through the louvers, and barely made herself sit in the bed.
The room was in complete chaos, things were scattered all around: the clothes lying crumpled piles on the floor, bed sheet pricked from crumbs… and the air was so resistant fume that even wide open window could not help it.
The snoring pile of rags at her left gave up still living partner, Shepard didn`t deny herself a pleasure to lift the blanket and watch Kaidan, the sight w
Your Royal GooglenessLet’s travel into the sky. Funny, really, even when man has lived on Earth for about 2 millenia and 70 years, they never thought to look up into the clouds. Among the mist and water, an elegant boarding school appears, about twice the size of a normal castle. BUSINESS BILLIONAIRES FOR THE BRILLIANT, an iron pegged sign states, swinging lonely near the guttering lanterns. Inside the massive school are hundreds of thousands of students, each one representing a company, such as Pottery Barn or even The New York Times.
But only the highest, top achievers of the elite ever dream to have a worldwide successful branch that the humans use often, the class named ‘Outstanding Achievers’, where we now must go. There are a handful of students in the classroom, dead silent excepting for the scritch scratch of frosted glass pencils meeting levitation paper. But our story starts with the girl in the far corner of the room. No, not the one with silver robes and brown hair, we
I want to be a Wolf, Rufus. “…June 4th, 5456, Atlanta, Alabama.”
That’s right. You heard me. I lived in Atlanta, Alabama. Atlanta used to just be in Georgia. But in the last few centuries, it had expanded into other states, like Alabama. That’s where I lived.
“Desire of Transformation,” my dog, Rufus, said. Rufus 101 is a robot that looks, moves, sounds, and even smells like a real dog. But he’s not. He’s a robot assistant.
“Wolf.” I said instantly. All my life, I had wanted to be a wolf. Now, at age 18, I was allowed to do so. The president of the TransAnimal Company promises you&rsq

Tarzan/Cthulhu Mythos fan fiction
The giant creature stared towards the village for about one hour. Then it lumbered towards it and the bungalow. Tarzan and Jane felt the tremors and they realized that the monster was en route towards the village. Jane was noticeably nervous.
"Tarzan, that thing is coming now."
"Tarzan will fight it."
"It seems huge. Can you stop it?"
"Tarzan must try."
The quaking continued towards them. Tarzan primed for action. Jane remIned skeptical that he would win. Tarzan had fought lions and elephants, but they were smaller than this monster. She dreaded that Tarzan would lose the fight and die. Yet she had much less strength and could hardly help him.
Moments later, the quaking began to thunder. They realized that the monster was nearer to he village. Silence had fallen all around. All of the local fauna had fled to safty and dared not o make a sound. The lobg trunk of the creature had broken all foliage in its path and fragments had strew
Post-dinos: TitanosaurOn a Jovian moon with one fifth of Earth’s gravity the Titanosaurs, one of the largest lineages of Dinosaurs, indeed one of largest lineages of Terran life, were taken to fantastical new extremes.
These surreal goliaths wandered in herds through wondrously tall forests, communicating with each other using brightly coloured dewlaps running down the underside of their length. Loud vocalisations and whip-like cracks made by their tails were used when individuals weren’t visible to each other. The term herd if used loosely here and refers individuals walking within sight or hearing of each other. Contrary to their unbelievable height
Femme FataleThe uproar had climaxed to a chaotic murmur of violence;
her voice did nothing but antagonize the beasts,
cursing and chanting, biting and shoving.
Her voice cooed,
seducing the simple minded into an ape-like rage;
they'd sign their own death-warrants.
The laws were in place to keep control,
not to display compassion from the State;
did they not know?
The crowd threw themselves at the front-lines,
disregarding law and order,
passing crude judgement as they swayed against it.
Mist and smoke met plastic slugs,
and steel embraced beast.
The mob charged its captors,
like a horde of intoxicated animals;
a chill voice overhead bark
JoyceHaving kicked the man in the balls and relieved him of his belongings, Joyce wasn't quite sure what to do next. She could run, but he might come after her the next minute. If she tied him up here, in the middle of nowhere, he might be eaten by wolves; or starve to death. Besides, she didn't have any rope. She could kill him... perhaps. The thought left a bitter taste in her mouth.
'What am I to do with you?' she sighed.
'Well,' he groaned while giving her a look that sent shivers down her spine, 'You can run, but that won't help you, cause I will find you! So you just wait another few minutes until I get back up again - and I mean úp- and t
