"I have had enough!" he shouted fiercely, "I'm sick of this suffering!"
He slammed his sword into the ground, causing a second shockwave that caused the remaining Mark III's to be flung to the ground. The impact had a second effect, however. The silver blade, cracked and broken entirely, shattered violently. Thin, crumpled metal littered the ground like ashes, and a bizarre green glow reflected off of the shards. Where the argent edge once was, there was now a truly beautiful sight.
The blade now appeared to be made of a bizarre, emerald-green crystal, which pulsed slightly with an otherworldly glow. An equally bright aura seemed to surround its wielder, Swift, who's blazing yellow eyes threatened to pierce anyone who dared to look into them.
Jay could see the brutish general, Demon Craze, watching curiously, seeming to recognise the situation as vaguely familiar, but also seeming unsure of where the familiarity was coming from. A sudden change in his expression told him that Demon now

The great, iron gates began to shut rapidly, like the maw of a giant beast. Swift spun around immediately, fast enough to see the cause of the door's sudden movement. Ratud grinned arrogantly at him from the other side of the gates as they swallowed the last remaining portion of freedom the young humans had. Slamming his fist sharply into the closed teeth of the doors, he swore loudly. He turned to the others, swinging his arms wildly at the thought of being trapped.
"He planned this all along! That little-!" he begun, before a large figure launched itself from the hole torn in the ceiling, sending dust flying inside the cage of iron when it landed. The voice of Demon Craze echoed through their bodies as he growled threateningly.
"I've been waiting for this chance," He boldly claimed "and so has Lord Darkness."
As he spoke, what must have been almost one thousand GIGAS MkIII units seemed to fade in from every tiny space within the confines. Another loud thump, and a heavy mechanical ve
Darkness Page 19
Derek, Hannah, Ethan, Aria, Ruri and Amy stood before the slowly opening maw of the steel fortress. They walked into a surrounded and ceilinged courtyard, quietly discussing how quickly the door had been opened for them. Looking around, Derek was able to distinguish very little more than two small balconies overlooking their courtyard, and a moderately sized hole in the iron ceiling. Upon one balcony was a brown-robed figure, looking down at them with slight confusion. Swift.
He jumped down from his vantage point, stopping himself halfway down with the silvery blade of his sword, before pulling it from the wall and allowing himself to land safely on the ground with the rest of the group. He approached Derek with long, but unthreatening, strides.
"What are you doing here?" Swift asked, immediately.
"Looking for you, we thought you might appreciate the help." Derek replied, calmly.
"Where's Corona and the kid?" was Swift's emotionless response.
"Up here," called Corona, from the opposite
Darkness Page 18
The sheer vastness of the steel-coloured citadel made Jay shudder. The building was far larger than it had appeared from a distance, and the two stone pillars that stood before the mighty iron gates, stood silently like a pair of vultures awaiting their next meal. Corona looked at them for a moment, before a shiver fell upon her and she recommended searching for another entrance. Jay followed silently, wanting nothing more than to get away from the gigantic stone sentinels that seemed to glare at him as he nervously retreated.
The pair wandered on, hunting for a second entrance that seemed to continue to evade their perception. While they were focused on this, they nonetheless managed to spot Swift's brown cloak for a split second, as it was swallowed by the gigantic steel wall. Corona carefully examined the wall, looking for a way through it. She suddenly pushed her hand straight through the solid-looking wall. An illusion. Turning to each other for a moment, they silently agreed to h
Darkness Page 17Jay looked around after the light had faded, and saw Ratud slumped against a rock nearby. He could hear a strange, thumping sound from nearby. Slowly looking around, he couldnt find anything that could cause such a noise, until he felt a rush of wind come over him. And then another. The gusts were coming from above. He spun around and looked up, seeing a huge, red-skinned dragon-like creature, flapping its wings above him. Jay stared at it for a moment, before the creature squawked and dived at him, proving its hostility.
The winged creature dived at him, and Jay only just managed to dodge it. As it swooped around to dive again, Jay noticed that Ratud had disappeared. For a short moment, he allowed himself to be distracted by the thought of where he had gone, a moment that the winged creature took advantage of. It swooped down again, screaming at Jay all the way down. Jay barely looked in time to see it collide with him, sending him hurtling down the hillside. He slammed into the
Darkness Page 16Hey, listen to this! said an unfamiliar voice. Jay sat up from the couch that he had been lying on and saw, or so he assumed, Ratud. He was grinning at everyone in the room.
I went for a walk around, and I saw this weird building that looked like a fortress! he continued, obviously proud of his discovery.
Dont you think we should check it out? he asked, directing this question at Ethan. Ethan lightly shrugged.
Maybe. It could be something important, so it deserves at least a little attention. He replied. He turned to look at Swift.
Want to check it out for me, Swift? He asked.
Swift looked him for a moment from the desk he was lying on. Then he dropped his head back onto the desk.
No. he said, bluntly.
Ill do it. said Jay. Everyone in the room looked at him.
Ill do it. He repeated.
Ratud grinned at Ethan, and he gave a slow, uncertain nod.
Alright Ethan said, qu
Darkness Page 15Jay slowly opened his eyes, taking in the light that was glaring at him. He slowly started to look around, but he couldnt see anything but white. Slowly, his vision cleared. He was back in the base of operations, in the medical room. Ethan was standing over him, saying something. Jays hearing had still not come back to him yet, so he didnt hear all of the conversation.
wake up completely soon, then well explain everything to him. He was saying to somebody that Jay couldnt see. Jay groaned a little, and then slowly sat up.
Perfect timing, how do you feel Jay? Ethan said to him.
Terrible. What happened? Jay asked.
Ratud appeared, panicked and tripped over the detonator. Not the most climactic thing Ive ever seen, but your exit was pretty awesome. He replied.
What about Swift? Did he get out alright? Jay asked, still not feeling fully awake.
He didnt get out until after the bu
Darkness Page 14Jay reached the surface, and pulled himself out of the hatch. He glanced behind himself, and for a second thought he saw the hideous face he had seen earlier. He walked towards where Corona was standing, and quickly explained everything that had happened since he went underground. Corona took a quick, sharp breath and then looked away for a moment, before turning and walking to the entrance of the main building, where Hannah was now laying.
Han, we have to go. Jay says that Swift is with one of Darkness guys. Corona said to Hannah. Hannah looked up at her, then raised herself from the ground and held the radio to her head.
Everyone, lets go. Drop what youre doing and just come back, were blowing this place and leaving now. She said into the device. Derek started to reply to her before she had managed to finish her sentence.
I was just about to tell you the same thing, looks like weve got mark threes up here. He sai
Darkness Page 13Corona looked at Swift, noticing the look of frustration on his face. She had seen him like this once before, when they were on their last mission together.
Swift? What is it? She asked him.
Stay here, I have something to do now. He replied, walking down the stairs into the underground section.
Make sure everyone stays away from here. He said, looking directly at her. He turned away, and spoke again, this time quieter.
And dont wait around if I dont come back.
The metal doors opened once again, this time for Swift. Swift looked to where Jay was laying on the floor, a small cut on his right arm. He looked at Swift, and then Demon followed his gaze, making eye contact with Swift himself.
Jay, go back up the elevator and tell them to get ready to set off the explosives.
Jay looked at Swift, puzzled.
Just do it rookie. Swift insisted. Jay did as told, and proceeded to ascend the elevator

Poland X Child!Reader - It's Going To Be Okay.
"Hey, are you, like, okay?" A male voice asked.
The girl opened her eyes and looked at a man with soaked straw blonde hair sticking to his cheeks and bright green eyes, full of life, curiosity and worry. He was dressed in a salmon pink collared, button up shirt, black pants and black shoes. The girl looked at the man in confusion. "Are you talking to me?" She asked. The man nodded and said, "Yeah, like, who else would I be talking to?"
The small girl shrugged. "I dunno. Why are you worried about me anyways? No one else has been..." She said. The man felt a tug at his heart and picked the small, cold, wet girl up. She didn't protest. "Because I have a heart, unlike some of these people..." The man said. "Wanna, like, come to my house? It's totally warm there and I could, like, get you some totally cute clothes." He asked the girl. The girl simply nodded. "That'd be

France X Sick! Reader - I'll Be There For You
Alright, let's see what I can do~. Hopefully I'll do good.
France X Sick!Reader - I'll Be There For You
You lay in your bed, stomach pains and a constant nauseated feeling. You've already puked twice today and you feel like you don't want to anymore. You sigh and hear a knock at the door. You got up and your head pounded, causing you to hold a hand to it. You walk to the door and open it to reveal your flirty, best friend Francis or better known as the personification of France.
"'Ello (Y/N)! 'Ow are you doing?" Francis asked with the accent that you found pretty cute. Okay you admit, you have a giant slight crush on the Frenchie. "Terrible." You simply replied. "Oh? What's wrong?" He asked. "I'm sick. That's what. I think I have a stomach virus." You replied, grumpily. Sickness messes with your emotions, makes you kind of grumpy.
"Do you 'ave a fever?" Francis asked as you moved aside to let him in and you closed the door. "I dunno to be honest." You replied. "Zhen you must ta
A Slice of Blapple PieIt was a beautiful day; the magenta sky was free of clouds, Paka, my volpiline, was pouncing on tiger mice and letting out trills of joy, and I was standing on a branch in my blapple tree, a rope tied tightly around my waist (so I wouldn't plummet to my doom), picking blapples and placing them in my basket I had over my arm.
As I was humming "Even Flow" by Pearl Jam, I heard Paka give an angry growl, and looking over, I saw him fly with his little wings up into the tree and through an open window of my house. Perplexed, I looked below me, and standing at the base of the tree was a black blob. (I'm practically blind without my glasses.) However, I knew who it was once I heard her speak.
"Rei!!" shouted Annatier, her voice echoing in an unnatural way. "Rei! HEEEEEY!!! REEEEEEEI!!!"
"What?" I shouted back, feeling a bit miffed.
"Can I come over?" Anna yelled up.
"No!" I said. "I'm busy!"
"But I wanna come over!"
"GO AWAY ANNA!" Without waiting for a response, I carefully walked across the
Tarzan [A Signless x Reader fanfic] Chapter 1How the hell did you get to this place? Heck you didn’t know…it was weird and dark and spooky and you swore you heard creatures somewhere.
All you remember was laying on your bed, enjoying a good book and sipping some lovely tea then BAM! You were falling from the sky and landed hard on the greyish ground, clenching your book as if it was going to save you. And on the floor you still laid, before regaining yourself and standing up, wiping off the dirt– or whatever it was off of your being.
“Bloody hell...” You cursed, a deep frown marring your face and your nose crinkling in slight displeasure. Still clenching your book, you took off towards…was it the south or the east? Whatever! You didn’t care about directions, as long as you could find a way out of this place.
You shivered at the night wind, and wrapped the bathrobe around you, since you had forgotten that you were still in a nightgown, and that was indecent for a lady to wear out in publ

A child no more than five walked around in the downpour outside, dressed in what used to be a light shirt and shorts. Her wet, matted (H/C) hair plastered to her face by the rain. She was deathly pale and her dull (E/C) orbs showed no spark of life. The few strangers on the streets payed her no attention. She was used to it. No one cared for her. She saw a bench so she climbed onto it and sat down and closed her eyes.
Until she heard a voice.
Attack on Titan: Erwin x reader x Levi Pt.1There was a feeling of pity in sitting heavy in your stomach.. and your chest. You sat outside of the closed off door and leaned against the frame. The sight was burned into your memory. Erwin had been so covered in blood, no one could tell if it was from a wound of his own or from the comrades falling around him. It was disturbing when a shaky voice called out his name, and he didn't move, he didn't look like he was breathing. Your mind began to swim in hysteria again before you opened your eyes and took a breath. You were safe in the building, he was safe in the building.. He was alive. You honestly struggled to remember how Levi had found the both of you as quickly as he did, but.. Thank God for that little man. A sharp exhale pushed through your lips as you turned around and opened the door quietly, catching sight of Levi sitting on a stool next to a steel bathtub. Erwin still being unconscious, Levi took it upon himself to take care of the commander.
He wore his uniform, onl
The Peryton (Peritius borgesi) is a species of herbivorus pterosaur indigenous to Ophionia.
The Peryton superficially resembles a deer, and is 5 feet tall with a 25 foot wingspan. It's body is mostly covered with dark green pycnofibres, with white on the underbelly. The wings are mostly white with black tips. The back legs are long, with yellow feet. It's head is mostly black with white on the lower jaw, and around the ear holes. The head's most prominent feature is the branching, antler-like crest.
As there are no deer, or similar mammals in Ophionia, Perytons have evolved to fill their ecological niche as browsers. Perytons live in large flocks, and communicate with a series of roars and cries. They are notoriously agressive and have been known to gore humans to death with their crests. Mated pairs tend to build their nests atop high cliffs, and are fiercely protective, driving off any intruders including other Perytons
Kidnapped-Loki X Reader prt 1
I was busy watching the Avengers I was at the part where the Hulk was slamming Loki; The God of mischief into the Stark Tower floor. I know that its rude to laugh when someone is getting slammed into the floor, but I couldn't help it when the Hulk said and I quote 'Pewy God' I could help, but laugh. It was the second time I had watched this movie since I had gotten it for my 26th birthday, but unlike most Avenger fans I was a fan of the Godly brothers mainly the troublesome one named Loki. I yawned as the movie came to an end, I wanted to watch it for the third time, but I couldn't keep my calico eyes open. 'Damn it all ' I thought. So I left it in the dvd player, and went to read a comic book on Thor I got half way thru reading about some place called Asgard, falling to sleep with the comic book open on my chest after a while of sleeping I heard a light tapping at my window which was strange because I lived on the second floor of a red old brick building. Yawning again I groaned, and

The two of them ran around the corner as fast as they could. The skyscraper they were in shook.
Its getting closer, echoed a voice from the radios they were both carrying, get out of there, fast! A low rumbling could be heard from the floor above.
Keep going down, Derek, well be on the bottom floor said the voice again.
Dont be stupid, get out of here. Me and Hannah can handle ourselves, just go! replied Derek. The two of them kept running. They got to the seventh floor when Hannah tripped. Her leg was bleeding slightly. Derek turned to help her, and saw the shape across the hallway. It was the thing they were running from.
Go! Save yourself! cried Hannah, she was obviously still very scared.
I cant leave without you. Derek replied.
Yes you can, just go. The shape was getting closer. Derek ran to her and picked her up, putting her on his shoulder. He looked up and saw it
