Chief Thrag slammed into his chiefly hut, his nostrils flaring furiously. He had just returned from the wallop school where a youth was being picked on. That wasn't unusual: young wallops always picked on each other. But they didn't see it as a bad thing. It was a chance for them to hone their combat skills from a young age. So it wasn't supposed to be a matter for the wallop chief to get involved in, right?
Wrong. As it turned out, instead of fighting back the bullies, the little wallop ran to the wallop school's principal, asking them to stop the aggressors! Such weakness! Such dishonour! And since no one at the school could figure out what to do, since this was an unprecedented event, the principal called the chief. After a discussion with the principal and summoning the child's parents, and after a long discussion with them, the family was banished out of the city...and out of the clan. The whole thing had put Thrag in a very bad mood, because it

Miles away from Terra Sparrow, another pregnant woman stared out at the night. She had dark chocolate skin, her eyes were a deep brown, her shoulder-length hair dark blue, and she was dressed in a long yellow gown that covered her rounded belly. This woman's name was Laila.
Laila ran a hand over her womb and sighed. She hadn't always lived like a prisoner in this ivory tower. She hadn't always been queen of Klockstoppia. In fact, she used to be a crystal mage.
Laila came from a terra almost entirely populated by crystal mages, known as Terra Lapis. It was known for its people's mastery and knowledge of crystals and harnessing their energy. Even the most mediocre of their people could summon blasts from a single energy stone. And Laila was one of the best crystal mages on Lapis. But she also had a passion for exploring. She would spend hours riding her skimmer to different terras, finding new crystals there and marking the spots she visited on one of her countless

When Anna first met Everett, she’d been working a part-time job as a waitress; a waitress in a restaurant that happened to be the favourite of Everett, the man of her dreams. He was quite a ladies’ man, with his charming looks and french accent. He was also the perfect subject of an aspiring writer. The two met and became fast friends, helped by the fact that Everett ate very often at the restaurant where Anna worked. They became so close, that whenever they weren’t chatting together at Anna’s job, they were writing letters to one another.
During two years, they’d stayed pen pals, starting to date after about a year of correspondence. Then, Anna moved to Gale and they settled down together. A month after their wedding, Anna became pregnant. For 2 years, 9 months and 10 days, everything had seemed perfect in Anna’s life.
Perfect until the cyclonians came to Gale, of course. They wanted to use the land to set up factories and mines.

“Lightning, where are taking me?”
“Shh! It’s a surprise!” the sky knight said.
His hands over her eyes, he gently steered the woman toward what he wanted to show her. He couldn’t wait to see her face once she saw it! Just a few more steps…and…
“All right! We’re here!”
“What?” she asked as he removed his hands from her face, but then she gasped at the sight that met her eyes.
“Oh, Lightning!” she breathed, her hands over her heart.
She gently touched the tree’s trunk and Lightning beamed with pride. Etched into the bark were the words “Lightning + Ella” surrounded by a heart. He had carved out those words himself.
Ella turned to him, her bright green eyes filled with tears. She clasped his hands and Lightning felt his face melt into an even bigger smile.
“This is the most romantic thing a woman could ever wish for.” she said, wrapping h
Different Kind of VictoryThe Condor is the awesomest airship ever built, hands down. Period.by OKami-hu
Being its helmsman, navigator and maintainer is a privilege. It's a duty, a responsibility that demands a whole man and a capable one at that.
Stork considers becoming that man one of his greatest personal victories ever.
But the story doesn't end there. The Condor is a wonderful ship, but it's the last of its kind; parts aren't made for her anymore. That means, other, suitable parts need to be tracked down and more often than not, modified. So while Aerrow and his Knights fight their battles on the sky, defeating Cyclonians, Stork stalks the markets and workshops, twitching from worry and sometimes, sheer terror when it's the seedier parts of the terra towns. He deals hard, the perfectionist he is, and then he runs back to his own workshop to do the nicer part of the job.
And at the end of the day, when the team returns, the Condor continues her way, swiftly soaring on the sky, without a hitch; an
The Dark Ace's Victoryby Sunagirl
The citizens of Terra Atmosia gazed skyward to the crash of metal on metal. Almost a daily sight now, they watched the battle with fearful eyes. Storm Hawks versus Cyclonia, the only squadron in the Atmos free from Cyclonis's control. The young heroes valiantly fought a losing battle against the Cyclonian army. Outnumbered and outgunned, they refused to surrender.
The Dark Ace rammed his skimmer into Aerrow's, eliciting another ear-shattering crunch as the Storm Hawk's ride caved beneath the pressure. The fearless sky night ignored his failing ride and somersaulted toward his rival. He knew the Dark Ace was winning.
Lightning cracked across the blood-red sky of Cyclonia, followed by a brief darkness.
