Seriously, this guy is frickin' AWESOME!!!! [link]

"I'm sure you are."
"But I tried my best....."
"And you still lost! Do you want to go the rest of your life as a weakling?!"
"Well it doesn't look that way, does it? Obviously my message isn't sinking in. Now get over here."
"Don't start. This is for your own good."
"Now hold still."
Michelle bolted upright in her bed. She frantically looked around, looking for the Pokémon from the dream. But he was not there. Instead, all she saw w

Everett held his arms in front him, but his efforts proved futile. Within seconds, he was forced onto his back by a mob of infant Pokémon, all clamoring to get on top of him.
"Wow! So this is what a Gallade looks like!" "His chest is blue! Does that mean he's a special Gallade?" "I didn't think he'd be so skinny!"
Everett suddenly felt very uncomfortable. He could understand baby Pokémon being curious, but this was a bit too much for him. As he struggled to get them off of him, he inadvertently flexed his arm. One of the infants noticed this immediately. "Ooh! Look at that!"
Everett turned his head in the

Everett headed down the path to Larissa's cottage, absorbed in his thoughts. He was particularly worried about his performance against Michelle. He figured he had scored somewhere in the middle. He certainly hadn't started out well, but he was fairly certain he had at least made up for some of that near the end of the fight. Of course, part of that was due to Michelle's breakdown.
That was what bothered him. He knew she was a tough fighter, and couldn't put his finger on why she would suddenly lose it like that.
Suddenly, something slammed into his chest and sent him onto his back. Everett groaned as he slowly sat up, and

Michelle wasted no time in beginning her assault. She charged toward Everett, who barely noticed her in time to duck and roll away from the whip-like fur on her arms. The Gallade gave her an angry look, miffed that she had taken a cheap shot at him. "You just couldn't wait, could you?"
The Mienshao didn't answer. She simply stood there, waiting for him to make his move. Everett got to his feet and rushed her. She sidestepped him and struck him across the face. The impact sent him reeling sideways, and left him open to a flurry of blows. Unable to escape the onslaught, Everett did his best to defend h
Chained: ch 12Rohan and I departed from Lefa in a secretive manner, casually walking through the streets to avoid catching any eyes but hurrying as soon as we were out of sight. We'd both filled our ratty old satchels, now the only physical reminisce of our slavery besides the scars on our backs and the numerals on our palms. The innkeeper had so kindly set us up with a day's worth of provisions and our newly acquired garments. It felt wrong, packing the fine apparel into the dirty bag, even though the clothing was only adequate compared to everyone else's. I also included the seashell comb Mrs. Hastrin had used to unknot my hair and a pair of elegant laveChained: ch 12 by ~Carana0
Chained: ch 11Restlessly I woke up in the soft, warm bed the innkeeper had provided with the room. The bed some would call mediocre threatened to swallow my ground-hardened body as I lay still and tried to relax. When sleep refused to welcome me back after the third moon's spell I gave up, threw my legs over the side and stood up. The night gown I found among the graciously offered clothes floated around my knees, the delicate blue fabric so light I felt vulnerable. I gently lifted it off over my head and yanked on a pair of much more practical tan pants with a simple leather belt and a fitting white shirt that covered the silver chain still hanging aroundChained: ch 11 by ~Carana0
Chained: ch 10We didn't enter the town immediately. According to the boy, whose name turned out to be Wren, the chief wished to speak with us outside of town. I watched Wren run back to Lefa, his blazing mop of hair bouncing down the hill and disappearing amongst all the other heads in the little town's streets. They lived so close to one another, but they lived peacefully with each other. I'd forgotten how possible that was, since the only place I really remembered was the slave's cabin in the dragon farm.Chained: ch 10 by ~Carana0
"What do you think the chief person wants to talk about?" Rohan asked absentmindedly as he slid off Clect's back and planted his feet firmly on the gr
Chained: ch 9Neither Rohan nor I knew what to make of it. Regalith had mentioned that there were other astral travelers besides myself and that they've been around since at least the Precian tribe. Surely others would have known about the feral dragons and trainers would have been stopped from making more dragons like Elegu.Chained: ch 9 by ~Carana0
My mind mediated partly on this and partly with Spiral as she glided easily through the mountains formerly blanketed in dense forest. Now the late morning sun cast dreary shadows behind skeletal remains and over the blanket of soot and ash. The desolation in Spiral's eyes reflected in my downcast face.
Apparently Rohan was seeing th
