  1. "Is that plagiarism" Short answer: No Long answer: No I don't think so (though I don't know the specific work nor what would be specifically "copied")
  2. "Aeon Storm..." Sabrina repeated under her breath. Slowly recovering from her earlier lapse. It sounded so cool! And this place was their temple? The temple of the Aeon Storm... They must be incredibly powerful if they had a name that amazing. Sabrina nodded along to what River was saying their task was. For the girl the latter half didn't concern her nearly as much as the first. With a look of dread in her face she muttered, "oh no, a puzzle." There was a reason most of her favorite games involved either no puzzles or simple ones. She would have to do what she could and hope that at very least she could avoid having to do one of those sliding puzzle things. She was surprised at Gene's question. Something must have shaken him up but she had no idea where it might have come from. He continued to be a strange and unknowable being. Whatever the case River was quick to....give some sort of answer. With her head full of worry over the puzzle she wasn't sure what it was she was telling him except that they just had to beat the bad guys to win. As they walked down the hall Sabrina's eye kept flicking over towards River. Finally she felt confident enough to ask what was on her mind. "So...why exactly do we need to unlock the door like this? Can't we, uh, skip to the thing trying to kill us part?" River thought about it for a moment before saying, “I cannot speak for my Lady here and was not given such an explanation myself. However if I were to offer conjecture on it I would believe it is because the Accursed and the areas they are imprisoned in are not so straightforward and this is to help familiarize yourself more with your powers and how to utilize them beyond combat.” River pointed to the door on the opposite side of the room, “or become accustomed to taking the path of most resistance.” "Oh. I see." Sabrina said, not understanding what River said. "Does that mean there will be more puzzles in the future?" Suddenly this hero thing had gotten much scarier. “Forgive me for my use of conjecture once again, but I believe so.” The girl nodded. "You're forgiven." Sabrina said, then looked away awkwardly as she thought that was a weird thing to say to someone. The girl took a deep breath. She had to try. She had to figure out some way to help solve this. Because if she didn't then it might give them more reason to not keep her around. The worst outcome for her that she could think of was someone deciding that perhaps Sabrina was not meant to come here after all and trying to send her back. So she examined the room as best she could. The gears in her brain turning as she attempted to take everything in and come to a solution. Finally, she spoke out loud the one thought that came to her mind. "I can make the jump..."
  3. As the van went down the road, flanked by trees, that led to the high school there was a sense of unease. No matter the number of times they did this there was always a disquiet when heading to the scene. Perhaps it was their own expectations, or perhaps there truly was something unnatural that only those who have encountered entities can detect, but this feeling didn't go away as they passed the treeline and could see the school itself. The atmosphere certainly wasn't helped by the cemetery located across the street on the left. The building itself didn't seem threatening, except of course for students arriving late. It was long, with two stories, and shaped vaguely like a stretched out U. As they turned, passing by the electronic sign which had an advertisement for a bank under it, a constant reminder to students about the responsibility that awaited them as soon as they graduated, down the curved road that took them to the front of the school, they felt as though someone, or something, was watching them. In front of the main building was attached a smaller structure, still wide but shorter than even the bottom of the U, which at two ends had openings supported by three pillars at one side that led to a series of glass doors. While the night was dark the area under one such openings was even darker. They would need flashlights to even see on their way towards the doors. As one of the lights flashed across a door they saw a face pressed up against it. A thin old woman with chalk white skin and greying hair. Suddenly the door opened and the woman stuck her head out. They could see that across the back of her neck hung at least half a dozen rosaries which jingled lightly as she moved. As the woman slowly stepped a bit farther out they could see she was covered in religious imagery and religious paraphernalia. "Y-you aren't Shiki. Are y-you here for the...." Her eyes, small and beady, darted around nervously. "d-demon?" She gasped as she said this then made the sign of the cross across her chest.
  4. So I feel the only way this works is if you lower the requirement (and maybe advertise it?) I feel 32 or even 16 would work fine, because while Robin Williams is great you'd be hard pressed to find someone who saw more than a dozen of the movies
  5. The results are in! Can't say expected the top two but goes to show never can predict Pokemon preferences. In 4th place, my favorite Grass types! In 3rd place, spooky Ghost types! In 2nd place, mysterious Psychic types! Which means the grand winner and top type of NCM, shockingly, Electric types!
  6. Lana's charge, despite the awkward footing, was quick enough that she was able to cleave the zombie's head before it could attack her. Having to put so much force into the swing kept her from being able to move before three of the zombies closed in on her. Two of them close enough to lunge forward. The eye watched her as she approached and, right at the moment that she attacked the zombie, it acted. While Estelle got into position to cast a spell the monster managed to get off a spell of its own. At first none would be able to tell exactly what it had done. Just that there was a slight distorted field in a cone shape coming from the eye that covered the area Lana and the zombies were. However Lana would notice a change as her vision suddenly went completely dark just as the zombies attacked. The three furthest zombies turned at the sudden cacophony that sounded behind them. They couldn't see anything to attack so they slowly shambled in the direction of the noise. The eye would have reigned them in immediately if not for Estelle's blast of light which disoriented the monster and making it unable to focus on its minions. And so the three zombies, for the time being, wandered in the area where the noise could be heard. It wouldn't be long before they decided to go after the fleshy meat that was in the opposite direction.

  13. Thessa didn't know what it was she wanted to eat. Just that it felt like time to get some food. Her first thought, due to her encounter with the Fates, was to get ice cream but ultimately the only thing she really had in mind was "something unhealthy". Thus it was she found herself at the mall. Surely something would catch her eye, or her nose, and she'd know what it was she wanted. “How’s tricks? Told you Caesar’s shorter in person than all those descriptions about him, right? You wanna hang out? Of course you do, come on.” "Figured he'd be even shorter honestly, but yeah he's a real life Napoleon ain't he?" Thessa wasn't thrown off by the sudden shift in plans. She just followed along behind Lachesis, though she kept her eyes on the girl they were heading for. She looked familiar, and not just because she stood out by towering over Thessa, and Lachesis's introduction brought the spark of recognition in her mind. "Oh yeah, graffiti's pretty nifty ya know? Shame people don't like to keep it up it's pretty fun seeing how different things look whenever I pass em by. Keep up the good work!" A wide smile crossed Sibyls face as she said, “damn a hero who gets it! Well I enjoy my art as much as I enjoy my other hobbies so be on the look out.” Thessa grinned back then looked over at Lachesis. She pointed at Sibyl and said, "she's adorable, I like this one." "She's a keeper, all right," Lachesis agreed. "Creation and destruction in one package, but also, you know, a cool person besides that. We saw her art and just had to talk to her." "Good way of choosing, lot less dull than other people I could mention." She looked to Sibyl. "Creation and destruction huh. Makes me wonder what'll be next for ya."
  14. Fiona had been silently watching Melissa ever since the conversation prior. Whenever Melissa looked her way she'd pretend to be engrossed in some spot on the wall. It wasn't until Melissa asked a question that she broke her silence. She lifted her own ice cream, which was chocolate, with chunks of fudge, and chocolate drizzle, and muttered "It's called Choco Choco Fudge." After this she became very engrossed in her ice cream, looking like she didn't want to be there. That is until Fen said something that startled her. "I've had bugs before but, well, I've never had with them with cream of any kind." "You've eaten bugs?" She said, her tone disturbed and disbelieving. Then, when Fen looked at her, she quickly looked away, "I mean, what a unique palette you have." Kelsey laughed at this. "Well don't think we got any places to eat bugs around here. Least I've never seen any." She looked down at her ice cream and gave an oddly wistful smile at it, as if remembering something, "got mint chocolate chip." "Hey...sorry about that...and for bringing up the rear. Seems like my plan of trying to get the old man to train me and teach me was for naught. Perhaps it's for the best." Fiona snorted, which she tried to cover with a clearing of her throat. Kelsey only laughed even louder than before. "You serious? You WANTED that old goat to train you? He's a real demon you know, even compared to the teachers back home. At least they actually wanted to be there." She pointed at Trevor with her ice cream and grinned, "oh hey maybe he'll teach you if he's on your squad, wanna trade leaders?"
  15. Am curious what prompted you to return?
  16. chad fight like a tiger 9/10 it's just too hype
  17. "Alright, I'm a tough girl, so try to stay behind me," Sabrina felt herself relax at the words. She wasn't looking forward to going into the unknown underground that awaited them. At first she set out to silently followed along behind but then suddenly, as if only just remembering something, she blurted out "Don't have to worry! We're all tough...right? I'm sure whatever is in there is no match for my special powers anyway!" As they entered Sabrina was about to quicken her pace to pass Abigail up to "prove" that she wasn't nervous at all. Then the door closed and it was dark and she stuttered to a halt. The glow didn't help her to regain the shaky confidence so she kept her mouth shut and just continued along the path. Sabrina soon became distracted however by the scenery they found themselves in. There was something about it that made her feel like they were about to enter a boss room of sorts and, despite the worrisome implications of that, she found herself growing excited to see what might be beyond the door. Before that, though, they had another encounter with their mysterious guide. Sabrina hadn't really considered the fact that River had just appeared here until Marshal made a statement. “...That is, if you haven’t been observing us already.” River's interest was piqued as Marshall mentioned a report, but then nodded at her statement. "I have indeed been watching closely all that the Exalted have been doing since last we spoke, yes." "O-oh you have? So..." Multiple scenes flashed in Sabrina's mind, trudging through the mud, hesitating against the drengr, and essentially every potential embarrassing moment. "Did anything....stand out?" She asked, failing to sound cool and composed about asking it. Putting a finger to her chin, thinking back on the past day's events, the girl smiled and nodded. "Oh, yes in fact! If there was one thing that stood out to me most it would be a term that I am quite unfamiliar with. What is a Pokemon?" Of all the things she could say that may have been the one that Sabrina expected the least. "Ah! It's a video game and anim...well, a video game is, uh." Sabrina found herself at an impasse where she was uncertain just how much she'd need to explain. "Pokemon are...imaginary monsters from a uh...game. That you catch and...have fight other monsters. U-um...." Sabrina was caught between panic and excitement at suddenly having to explain something she liked to not only a girl from another world but, perhaps more frightening, a cute girl from another world. "Oooh," genuine curiosity and interest on River's face as she continued, "what a fascinating game." The girl then looked at the others, and then over to herself, her tail briefly swinging in front of her before asking, "would I be considered a Pokemon?" "C-Cute!" Sabrina could no longer handle the situation. River's response overloaded the teenager's senses and she found herself unable to respond. The cute girl was interested in what Sabrina was saying! And her question just made her even cuter! Overwhelmed by all this Sabrina was suddenly kneeling down as her legs gave out. "I....not...quite?" she managed to stammer out.
