HG Predator and Prey Pt 8I stumble a couple seconds before I realize I’m sliding down what seems like a dark tube, the interior slippery enough that I my attempts to stop or slow down are useless. The ride lasts about fifteen seconds before I roll into an empty space. I leap to my feet and raise my arrow, only to realize wherever I am it’s pitch black. I then notice it’s a little cold, and my panting breath makes light echoes around me.
I quickly realize I must be underground but what frightens me more is this must be a trap, set by the Gamemakers. If it is, I think this just might be where I die. I’m too afraid to touch anything, the walls or even the floor, in case I trigger a booby-trap. But the choice is taken from me when almost at once, lights flick on, and for a second I’m blinded.
I then look around and realize I’m in a large round room and but what grabs my attention is I’m not alone. Standing at least fifteen feet
A thousand years ago, a demon known as Astaroth gathered a cult of witches and convinced them to turn their backs on the power of Nature and embrace the power of Darkness. This cult underwent a ritual called the Warlocking to infuse themselves with Dark Magic to become more powerful, severing their connection and allegiance to Mother Nature.
These individuals were thereafter known as the Warlocks.
They’re the reason why witches received great prejudice and suffered witch-hunts/trials. They use their powers for personal gain and ill-intent, and many of them implicated witches, framing them for crimes they did not commit. In modern times, they have developed a supernatural criminal syndicate, using crime to build up fortunes and establish their own companies. Warlocks are often arrogant, and employ half-demons, fays, and other supernaturals as a way of strengthening themselves.
Warlocks do however have a glaring weakness: To truly become a warlock is to undergo a ritual of
Originally called Knights, Hunters are the descendants of the original Knights of the Round Table, who, along with their leader and king, Arthur Pendragon, were blessed with a divine power to make them the greatest warriors to ever live.
This was done by Angels and Mother Nature at the behest of the wizard Merlin.
There were a total of a hundred Knights infused with this power, including King Arthur himself, but Arthur was the most powerful because he wielded Excalibur (the first earthly Angel Blade).
Excalibur itself is the source of the Knights’ power, as well as their Hunter descendants. It was created by Merlin with the help of Draigoch, the Red Dragon, and Nimue, the Lady of the Lake. At Merlin’s request, the Angels blessed the Sword with Divine Protection while Mother Nature infused the Sword with the power of the Elements. Made from raw ore of a fallen star, Draigoch provided the fires from which the sword was forged and Nimue provided some of the purest wate

Last Winter [JackFrostxReader] Pt.30
There was no way you would consider the current body reaction, the extreme shaking, the dryness of your lips, and the moistness that came to your eyes, was due to Jack being so very close to you. Extremely close. Those large bright blue eyes bore into yours with exquisite curiosity and illusionary worry, because your thoughts believed that was the only thing it could be; an illusion.
Your body trembled even more as you gazed back at the reflection of yourself that should never have existed in those eyes. It couldn’t exist. The person in those eyes looked lost and scared, which you had always tried your very best to avoid in any kind of situation. But the worst part in that reflecting image was the love-struck look you had fathom about for years and never had the accuracy to define it correctly.
Jack moved forward and you stepped back, lifting your hands to rub your eyes and blinked several times. Maybe there was something caught in your eyes, a speck of dust, maybe? Perhap
Facing Your Fears :: 6Rehabilitation Process: Day 6...
The days were passing by. Though Persephone seemed keen to keep interacting with Terrence while her sight was impaired, Flora continued pestering her older sister about removing her makeshift blindfold or at least accustoming herself to touching Terrence. She refused to believe that her sister wasn't ready for this next step, as Persephone had been talking to Terrence recently without so much as stuttering even once. Obviously she had been growing more comfortable with the giant spider over the course of the week yet each time Flora suggested their next course of action, Persephone would a way to dodge it.
Unfortunately, Terrence also proved little to no help coercing Persephone; he wanted her to progress at her own pace and didn't in the slightest want to force her into some situation she was uncomfortable with. He sought her trust, after all, and forcing her to touch him might risk that trust. He constantly told Flora th
Neither A Light, Nor A Heat - Part 1Cold wind whistled through the gorge that cut through the Ascarlin Mountains, sending a shiver through Lyne that rattled all the way down to the bone. Below, autumn colors were settling into the woods that surrounded the city of Negav. People were tending warm hearths, cooking dinner as the heat radiated out into the room and melted off the chill starting to settle in. Snow was rare in Felarya's only permanent human settlement, but that knowledge did little to make the winter rains less frigid.
Lyne pulled his cloak around him and hunched forward, trying to keep his hands from the iron barrel of his rifle, which refused to hold any heat. His shirt and pants were at least warm enough to keep the chill off of his wire-thin body, and the mop of loose, curly hair was thick enough to hold in what heat he managed to acquire.
"Liven up, son," said the driver next to him. He dug his elbow into Lyne's side, and about knocked the young man over. "You look like you're keeping a graveyard watch."

Fifty years of a mortal's life
Would be but a fleeting moment
Contrast with the life of Geten
It is nothing but a very dream and illusion
But once they are given life from God
There is no such thing that do not perish
Unless we consider this very seed of awakening
It is a grievous truth indeed
That was the only way Jack was able to summarize his situation upon his arrival at Toketsu Castle.
The Tenshu (main castle tower) was three-stories high, and though small, demonstrates the design required of a castle during periods of war. Standing tall with the height of 164 shaku (164 ft), Jack realized it looked even magnificent up close. The stone walls with large moats and four layers turrets encircles the inner tower of plaster, especially built in order to prevent enemies' siege to scale the walls. But that wasn't what discouraged him the most—It was the size of the annexes and the gard
Myth City Role-Play: Part One
(I most likely made this look more epic than I ought. But I wanted to do a crime noir style with this one. >w> )
This was done between :iconShadowdancer172: and :iconJessica-Rae-3:. She plays the part of Adair and was the one t start the prompt. I slightly rephrased her first part to fit in a story mode. Enjoy.
Hugh, a werewolf, is a police officer in a city that mixes humans and mythical creatures; which, of course, makes his job much more difficult. While most of these mythical creatures choose to stay in their natural forms, a few - more specifically, the larger ones - appear as humans, so that they can live more comfortably in a human-sized city.
One day, Hugh had to go a few miles outside of the city, into a deep forest, to check up on one person who hasn't paid their taxes or even really visited the city, as far as he knew, in quite a while.
When he reached their home, he grimaced. It's clear this p

You, Petra and Levi had moved your little group project upstairs in the family loft. The storm had gotten even worse as time flew by. Working by nothing but the light of the candles and flashlights you were just about finished with your group project. All you had to do was print out the statistics and pie chart and you all were done but of course, the power is out and there's no telling when it's going to come back on again. Your laptop was the only source of entertainment but no one could agree on what movie to watch. And no one meaning You and Levi. So here the three of you were. Sprawled out on the floor in the loft staring into the sky light watching as the rain tapped violently against it and the lightning flashed. Normally, thunderstorms would put you to sleep but this is totally different. Your teeth began to ache due to the munchies you had gotten and your stomach cursed you out loudly for neglecting to fill it up. Levi and Petra both heard this and exchanged looks at ea
Myth City Role-Play: Part Two
(I love the pic still! )
It wasn't until about a week later when Judy was sitting in her office that she got the phone call. She was chewing on some gum while filing down her nails since this was her break, but of course someone would call at that moment. She shouted at the other cubicles, "Phone call!"
No one responded.
She sucked her teeth and then answered the phone with a grumble, "Mythos Taxing Relief. This is Judy Sanders. How may I help you?"
Adair paused, sighed, and replied, in a slightly strained voice (it took a huge amount of effort to degrade himself this way), "I'm having a little trouble, paying bills." He took another breath. He supposed he'd have to tell her the reason, then... "My family has acquired a debt, and I don't have the money." He said shortly, irritation in his tone. He knew he was supposed to be 'polite' or something like that...but it was so difficult, when all he felt like doing was picking a good
Sonadow: Phantom of the Opera Ch11Chapter 11: Coming Clean
I’ll be honest. I didn’t know what to think at this point. The Phantom is so desperate for love, and I’d feel like shit if I turned him down. The thought of what he’d do IF I chose Ms. Rose scared me to death. However, I do love Ms. Rose as well.
This is confusing. I should… maybe ask Ms. Rose about this, but then… how would SHE react? Sheesh. It’s getting harder and harder to hide this. Mr. Wilson is getting suspicious around me, so I need to do a better job of faking smiles.
Problem is that… it’s hard. Hard faking smiles about love, about what I think is right, and what I think needs to be done. Should I do anything? That’s a stupid question. Of course I should. I don’t want to worry Ms. Rose, but I can’t think of anyone else to turn to. I’ve come so far in this Opera House in such a short period of time. We’ve become great friends, and she keeps insisting that I can t
C'ialiak: HappinessUninjured. It was surprising, somehow. After witnessing so much death and destruction, after losing a life to these overgrown lizards… To walk away from the final battle uninjured felt exceptionally satisfying. They could all rot in those walls for all he cared. He’d seen what the poisons had done to them. To their leader. It was both awe inspiring and absolutely horrifying. They hadn’t just killed it, they had liquefied its flesh until the scales dripped down upon the ground and eyes rolled back in blackened sockets. The putrid smell had washed upon the land and he was certain that those Light-Tribe cats nearest the carnage would reek of it for moons. He sat down for a moment, no one near him spoke, and took a breath to gather his thoughts and clear his mind of what he had seen. It wasn’t what he wanted to see anymore. What he wanted was- Her. She had been with him in his time of greatest need and how he did not know whether she was even still alive. He
Dwarves resemble short and stocky humanoids, male dwarves often having large beards, which is a symbol of their pride. They are stubborn, proud, and are among the greediest of Beings, more so than Humans though their greed is balanced by their stout belief in honor, though they are less trusting of other Races.
Dwarves are miners by nature, digging into the earth to uncover riches, and they are also legendary smiths and proud warriors. Dwarves hold an intense rivalry with Goblins and racially segregate them. And there are very few, if any, dwarves or goblins who have put their kinds' beef with each other behind them. Dwarves also had a rivalry with Dragons as both races collect and hoard treasure, some accounts in history where dragons stole from dwarves to increase their own hoards.
Although Dwarves' most legendary weapons are warhammers and battleaxes, Dwarves also make use of Mystic Firearms, Spell Guns and Rifles, fascinated by the possibilities of these weapons. Dwa
