Mass Effect - Origins of the ReapersThe Citadel, constructed by the Keepers with the help of their Machines. Their civilization had reached its peak , though the Keepers themselves were not the toughest and strongest species alive. More species began developing spaceflight abilities, and soon they would discover the Mass Relays. The Mass Relays that they had developed to reach the edges of the galaxy. The Mass Relays built by the Machines that they had so perfectly engineered.
The threat of the native creatures, mainly the Thresher Maws , was gone now the Machines had nearly wiped them out. The Destroyers proved very effective in combat against ground-based targets. While they weren't as large or tough as the capital ships, they had enough firepower and size to fight a large capital ship, or in this case, a Thresher Maw. The Machines that were destroyed could be replaced with new ones, made from the genetic material of their dead. Their ancestors lived on as one, in the body of the Machine, helping the Keeper society eve
Nightmares on Gehenna - PrologueGehenna was, as always, it's usual calm self. The trees slowly moved in the wind and the animals were resting under the somewhat cooler trees. The waterfalls roared and the fish splashed. Nothing disturbed the natural peace on the planet.
But that was fifteen years ago.
Now the trees were chopped down, the wind carried the smell of blood with him, and the animals fled long ago for the endless fires and explosions destroyed their homes. The waterfalls were blocked by dams to produce energy for the factories and military encampments that were build on the once-beautiful plains. The fish were killed by the toxics that were dumped in the water, for humans did not care for the wellbeing of nature.
Humans care for numbers and money. Gehenna has a vast resource of uranium, hidden under the tropical forests. The UN had invested heavily in the exploration of earth-like worlds and has funded colonists. Gehenna was encountered and scans showed there was an incredible amount of uranium under the s
Something'Oké, ik ga nu je zwaartekrachtsveld testen, kapitein-luitenant.' Zei de technicus. Hij pakte het speciale testpistool van de tafel af. Deze schoot kleine en onschadelijke kogeltjes af, die het veld als echt beschouwde. De technicus schoot twee keer en was voldaan met het resultaat.
'Het veld werkt. Nu ga ik kijken of ze ook opladen zonder problemen.'
Hij pakte nog een apparaat van de tafel af, die leek op een pen. Hij drukte op een knopje en tikte de veldgenerator aan met het apparaatje. Het veld werd gedeactiveerd en het blauwe lichtje floepte uit. Na een paar seconden begon het lichtje weer te schijnen en werden de schilden weer geactiveerd.
'Goed. Je generators werken prima. Nu de wapentraining.' De technicus liep naar een kast en stond op het punt die te openen, toen de deur van het lab openging. Het was Admiraal Clark, een van hoogste militairen van de Aarde.
'Wapentraining is niet nodig, sergeant. Iemand die Gehenna heeft overleeft weet hoe je met wapens moet omgaan.' Hij k
STAR WARS: Knights of Coruscant - Chapter 1''Congratulations on retrieving the briefcase, Marcel.'' Said Vass to the informant. ''Did the Trandoshan bring trouble?''
''Nothing we couldn't handle.'' Said the Jedi. He was completely bald, his head gleaming in the bright sunlight. His lightsaber was safely dangling at his belt, where it belonged.
''Our experts have studied the briefcase, and the information was very valuable. It seems Czerka is more ambitious than I thought.'' Vass continued. He still looked remarkably young, though he already passed his sixties. He had a cybernetic hand, made out of beskar, a nearly-indestructible metal, mined from the Mandalorian moon Concordia. It had replaced the organic hand that was lost on Dxun during the Mandalorian Wars.
''What kind of information?'' Asked Marcel, the organization's hacker and informant. ''I've already broken in their main systems and I've only found stock and exchange numbers.''
''The numbers formed a code. It is an old one, it was used during the Mandal
STAR WARS: Knights of Coruscant - Prologue''Right.'' The man said, his face hidden under a dark cowl. He was dressed with simple clothing and a long robe, so that a part of it slid over the dirty ground. Here, in the underbelly of Coruscant, the streets were never clean. Rubbish was everywhere, from corpses to fridges. The man moved his hand near his belt, where he felt the metal reassurance that was his lightsaber. He and his informant entered a narrow alley, where a Kajain'sa'Nikto was actively searched a trash can for something eatable. He scowled when he saw the pair coming into his alley and growled to the two men, like a beast defending its territory. The robed man moved his hand.
''You will take these credits and find yourself a life.''
''I will take the credits and find myself a life.'' The man said, looking very confused and he left the alley.
The pair continued, until they reached a very dark corner, just left of the alley. A Trandoshan and a Rodian were already waiting for them. The Trandoshan hissed something in hi
Same face, different person - IIt was cold in the hearth of Russia. Snow continued to come and everything was frozen. No single person ventured himself outside with this type of weather. Well, at least a smart person didn't. Jake was cold, and his fingers were frozen, yet he didn't complain. He had been trained for this, he was possible this. For him the large obstacle parcours stood. Made to make a man of him. And he was only sixteen.
Jake wasn't just a normal boy. Not even a real human. Jake was a clone. One of the many children of the cloning facilities in Moscow. Made to fulfilling stipulated destiny, made by people. He wasn't allowed to believe in any type of religion or god. ''That will only distract you from the real world, and your goal.'' The instructors of the facility's school said.
Jake looked at the obstacle course, when he heard the sharp noise of the signal. He ran full ahead and jumped on the trampoline. '''One. Two. Three!'' The instructor shouted. ''Jump!'' J
Ides of March - Chapter 30
Something tickled at his nose and Dib startled awake, blinking up into the dusky autumn sky with confusion. He couldn't remember falling asleep, but judging by the falling darkness around them, he must have been napping for at least an hour.
Strangely enough, he still felt the lithe weight of his alien companion next to him, right where he had been before he, apparently, had nodded off. Turning his head, Dib did a kind of double-take at the sight that greeted him.
Zim was lying next to him, his head resting heavily on his shoulder and large eyes closed.
Zim was slee- no. No. Irkens didn't sleep, Dib knew. But he was resting. The human barely dared to breathe, not wanting to disturb this rare moment of peace and trust.
Because it was.
It was a blatant display of how much the alien could relax in his presence. Even out in the open, even without his disguise on... Zim felt safe enough to let down his guard and take a nap with him.
Dib smiled, holding perfectly still to not rouse him
An Original Transformation TG - Part 3An Original Transformation - Part 3
Talking with Fleur highlighted the difference in our voices, despite how feminine they both sounded to me. While Fleur’s voice had that original squeak in the background, only striking when her emotions spiked, mine sounded more mature. Fleur didn’t mind. As a tease, she played up a child-like parody of her voice which I couldn’t copy.
Threading the puff-ball trees which surrounded the wrought-iron outdoor benches, we made it to one of the last arcades left in the entire county. All that kept it going seemed to be the quirky transformation games in their lineup. At the front, Fleur pointed out the dancing game marked as partially-transformative. It was easily the best bang for our buck as two dollars would change my height for the rest of the evening until I fell asleep and it would also adjust my clothes.
I stood on the dance pad with my first genuine butterflies since the salon. I shifted my weight as Fleur pu
The Change of Sides - Ch. 3 - Meet the Cast “You don’t have to go.”
“I’m not wanted here. There’s no reason for me to stay.”
“He’s right Ty, let him go.”
“But it’s getting dark out. Seto, wait till morning!”
“I don’t care anymore.”
The man sat bolt upright, gasping for breath. He groaned and placed a hand on his chest as a pain shot through it. How’d he gotten it again? Of right, he’d been shot…
As the man remembered the previous night, he sat sidew
SKY ARMY CHRONICLES - Episode Four - Chapter Two “Well, the games start tomorrow.” Jason said. The American team had met up in Jason’s hotel room the night of the Opening Olympics. The first competition would begin the next day – figure skating.
Ty nodded nervously. “We should do okay, I mean… We practice a lot.”
“We’ll be fine.” Marissa replied.
“I know, Mars, I’m just nervous.” Ty said.
“Clearly.” Adam smirked.
Jerome shifted in his chair uncomfortably. Ryan, another Hockey player on his team, raised an eyebrow. “What’s up?” He asked.
Thalia's Tale - Chapter Fourteen - A New Mission Logan blocked the strike, but only barely. He clumsily resituated himself, the length of his blade making it difficult. He only had just enough time to duck under the next blow. He tripped over himself in the process and landed on his backside. Before he could move, he felt the sharp steel up against his neck and knew he was lost.
His opponent sighed and resheathed his sword as Logan stood up. “Keyes, you’ve been training with a sword since you were eleven! You should have caught on by now!”
“I know, I know…” Logan sighed and sat down heavily on the bench in the training hall. “I’m sorry, Gabe. I’m telling you, I’m just not cut out for the sword.”
Gabe nodded. “I know…”
LoE-The Blackest Night-Ill Tidings
Canterlot Castle, The Private Apartments of the Lunar Court, 8:30 A.M. the day after the reading of the Book of Oa and the appearance of the Blue Ring.
[=Nightmare Moon of Equestria, RISE=]
“No! Be gone! I am no longer Nightmare Moon!”
[=Nightmare Moon of Equestria, RISE=]
A black ring then flew at Luna attempting to place itself on her horn, which now glowed. The Night princess reared up as a wall of magical force appeared. The black ring pushed through the spell barrier and landed itself on her horn. Tendrils of unlight appeared from the ring and drove themselves into Luna’s skull.
[=Nightmare Moon of Equestria, RISE=]
As blackness more empty than anything else she had known overwhelmed her. She could feel all the thoughts and feelings that she was melt away, the darkness consuming her very soul.
[=Nightmare Moon of Equestria, RISE=]
Her last thought was to scream.
Luna’s eyes snapped open as she looked up from a large cherry wood desk a
Sky Army Returns - Book Two - Chapter Ten Husky stared up at the ship in front of him for a moment. Then he smiled and looked back at Jordan and Tyler. “Thanks for bringing me here. I mean, I know you were heading here anyway… but thanks.”
Tyler smiled back at him. “It’s no problem, mudkip.” He said. “But Quentin… Are you really sure you wanna do this? I mean… once that boat leaves dock, there’s no coming back.”
Husky nodded. “I have to do this. It’s really for the best. Trust me.” Maybe it was Husky’s tone, maybe the look in his eyes. However way he could tell, Jordan just knew that the water type had something up his sleeve. He smiled. “I’ll see you soon.” Husky winked, then turned on his heel and headed up the walk into the ship. Tyler sighed and turned around, then started through the town. Jordan ran after him to keep up.
They often get confused with their Draco cousins because they both look similiar and breath fire, the only differance that Draco Wyverns have two legs while Dracos have four legs.
The largest species of Wyverns, they are rarely seen but they usually are around thunderstorms.
The largest species of Tarrasques, their habitat is usually around mountains and volcanos, Behemoths size is around 100 to 200 feet tall, that they were even mistaken as mountains.
Legless Serpents that are truly snake-like, very few species are venomous
Winged Serpents that spend their lives in the clouds.
The most unusual species of Serpents, they have two legs but don't really slither they walk, which means their the ancestor of all Serpents.
The smallest species of Serpents, having only two front legs and a cat-like face, it was sighted attacking livestock that includes pigs and cows.
