The Road Not TakenHe'll move onto a more advanced school (he has no friends; there's no reason to stay) and make Franz's mistake ("An AI seemed like a good idea at the time!")
She'll move back to Japan (new jobs, new locations) and study martial arts.
He'll lose his laughter (this breakup hit him hard)
He'll befriend a raven-haired delinquent (they'll be in jail before the end of high school)
She'll sit (neither awake nor asleep), dormant, like the supercomputer (it was never turned on) she resides in.
It'll stand for a year before being torn down.
(It's just an old factory)
Four Chains PrologueRun.
It was the single, frantic thought in the elf's head that blotted out all the others. It was one simple, yet important and maybe even lifesaving command that she was following. She was running, running as fast as she could. Her mind was on autopilot.
Run, jump, and duck.
The thick foliage slowed her pace considerably. She had to follow the commands that her brain produced so she wouldn't end up sprawled on the forest floor or getting slapped by low-hanging branches. She was afraid she wouldn't be able to get up if she tripped and fell.
Run, jump, duck, and pant.
Lightheaded from scrambling through the forest, the elf had to add it to her list of automatic commands—not that it hadn't been there already. Chest heaving, heart pounding, and legs burning from the actions, she tried unsuccessfully to organize her jumbled thoughts. She searched for the reason she was running and found it almost im
Not good enough...
Hate. Destroying the mind.
Self-loathing. Eating away your insides.
Circumlocution (Jerlita week 4)"And the code was scrambled, so I had to "
Aelita tuned out again, staring at Jeremy's brown sweater. She liked the blue better.
"Aelita? Are you getting this?"
She snapped back. "Yeah, sure."
"Are you sure?"
She had to fight back a sigh and nodded. Jeremy continued to talk, and soon Aelita found herself wishing that he would stop. Of course, she didn't mind talking to him or hearing him talk normally, but did they always have to talk about codes and Lyoko? Why not something else for a change?
Then she began to lean forward, thinking of a way to shut him up and get him talking about something else at the same time.
"the algorithm, Iuh, Aelita, what are you doing? Aelita?"
Jeremy tried to lean backwards, but Aelita darted forward and caught him in a kiss. She felt him go rigid as her hands slipped down to his shoulders, half out of instinct and half to make him stay, but something told her that he wouldn't be moving for a long time.
Celadon (Jerlita week 4)Green.
Jeremy swallowed his anger and smiled at Theo, who was talking with Aelita.
That was the color of envy.
He wasn't blind. Did they think he couldn't see their flirtatious looks or winks?
But it wasn't quite accurate, Jeremy thought.
Jeremy clenched his fist, shoving it into his pocket so Aelita couldn't see it. He knew she wasn't hers, but He let out a quick breath through his nose. Aelita had been getting more popular, and it wasn't too surprising for himafter all, why wouldn't she? She was funny, smart, kind, pretty beautiful.
Envy was green like her eyes, but not quite. That green was too pretty. Too good for Theo, at least.
Boys surrounded her more and more. Jeremy would meet her in the library or near the vending machine, only to find another guy or two already hanging around her. Then he convinced himself to outdo the guy in some sort of imaginary competition in his head, but he always ended up shrinking back, making an excuse to leave.
Blushing"What is that?"
"What is what, Aelita?"
"That." The pink haired girl pointed to one of the pink spots on Jeremy's cheeks. "What are those?"
"Oh." Jeremy continued typing, very aware of Aelita brushing against his shoulder. The close contact brought another rush of heat to his face.
"That!" the girl exclaimed as Jeremy became redder. "Why are you doing that? What is it?"
Still Jeremy continued to type, careful to keep his eyes on the screen. "It's called a blush, Aelita."
The girl tilted her head curiously. Now her cheek was pressed against Jeremy's. "I've seen you do that before. Sometimes when I was in Lyoko, you started acting funny and your face changed color. Also, it feels warm now."
Jeremy didn't answer.
"Why did you do it?" Aelita prodded, one arm now slung over Jeremy's shoulder. He tried not to squirm.
"Well," Jeremy began carefully, aware he was in dangerous territory, "people usually blush when they're embarrassed, but someone could also blush if they're near someone they li
Story scraps: Pumpkin Juice
"What is that?" Lizzie asked, poking the orange surface and wiping her finger on her shorts. "It looks yucky." She wrinkled her nose, pushing away the glass.
Her mother, who had been wiping down the counter, walked over. "Lizzie, Don't put your finger in there!" she scolded gently, dumping the glass and pouring a new one. Then she added, "This is pumpkin juice, dear."
"Pumpkin juice?" Lizzie asked in amazement, peering at the glass with wide eyes. "Pumpkins get their own juice?"
Her mother laughed, ruffling the five year-old's hair. "Yes, honey, they do. Why don't you try some?"
Lizzie narrowed her eyes in suspicion, glancing at her mother. "It It won't turn me into a... pumpkin, will it?"
Unable to help herself, the mother laughed again. "No, Liz, it won't turn you into a pumpkin."
Lizzie grabbed the glass and squinted at the orange with one eye.
"Are you sure?"
"I'm positive, honey," her mother said with amusement as she watched her daughter inspect the juice.
Then Lizzie put h
Story scraps: Insanity
Fat drops of rain thudded against the window, sliding down like tears against the glass. He worked feverishly in the near darkness, nimble and talented hands tightening bolts, screws, putting on parts, and more. A flash of lightening filled the window, illuminating his hunched figure and horribly bloodshot eyes.
"I'll show them," he muttered. "I'll show them all. I'll show them that I'm not insane " He let out a laugh that sounded more like a cough and finished tightened a screw.
Thunder boomed and a flash of lightening followed shortly thereafter.
"Bret Thompson, you'd better not be messing around with my lab equipment!"
"Leave me alone, mom!" the man known as Bret yelled back, face twisted into irritation.
"I don't like you spending all that time in the basement!" his mother yelled back. "You've been in there for days, hardly even coming up for nourishment!"
Hissing, the man continued to work.
"This will be my greatest invention yet. And I'm almost done, yes, I'm almost
Lucubrate: Jerlita week"Not again!"
Jeremy slammed his fist down on the desk for the fourth time that evening as the symbol he had come to know and hate flashed on the screen: the dreaded red exclamation mark.
The day had started so well, but had only dwindled down to gloomy: He had actually gone to breakfast this time, and had worked straight through gym. He had an enjoyable conversation with Aelita, in which he explained the concept and points of food. The materialization program had been launched, and launched, and had failed. Jeremy's hope disappeared slowly, along with the sunlight as night fell. It was 11:36pm; lights out had been hours ago. Right now, the only sound in Jeremy's room was the click-click of keys, the soft humming of the computer, and his light breathing. The computer screen illuminated his face, bits of code reflected in his glasses.
"I'll never get her materialization right," the young genius muttered bitterly under his breath. Pushing the keyboard up slightly, he buried his head in hi
Essence of Hyde - Addendum 1Samples of Hyde
'Bomber' Hyde - Mindset: Predator - Though she appears as a young teen, this spunky troublemaker was once a military explosive specialist with an uncomfortable fascination with fire. Unburdened by restraints, she gladly use her talents to help insurance scams and property seizure through a massive helping of explosions. She uses the money to fuel her other indulgences and is prone to play with lighters to alleviate her desire to burn and explode stuff.'Driver' Hyde - Mindset: Predator - A Hyde that is an adrenaline junkie, he finds the greatest satisfaction when he feels the thrill of intense speed in vehicles. Participating in illegal street races have been a welcome outlet to fulfill this desire and taste other sweet indulgences.

Volcanion ReportVolcanion (the Steam Pokemon) is a legendary Fire/Water-type Pokemon found in the high mountains of the Kalos region. Defying the laws of nature itself in both life and abilities, Volcanion are powerful beasts that can more than bring the powers of fire and water to a crashing crescendo in any fight. They might not be the fastest beasts on four legs, but you would be better off leaving them alone, lest you end up with a scalding stream of water being blasted full force into your face!
Volcanion are walking biological contradictions and are duly noted as the only Pokemon that can possess the natural attributes of both the Fire and Water-types as a result of their extremely bizarre and complex anatomy. From what can be told from the few encounters that have been made with these animals, it seems that they are most likely mammals with a thick armored hide that protects well against physical attacks, which is a good thing because the inside of them could almost be conside
CreepyPasta: Ms. MidnightI was the type of person, who would ALWAYS take advice, no matter what it was. I always wanted to be the best that I could, make the right decisions, make as less mistakes as I could. Just because I didn't want to upset anyone.. When I was a young teenager, my mother always had conversations about me with boys.. And I strangely remember them all, I never actually thought about it at the time, but my mother would always nag and nag at me about it. 'Dont ever let a man control you Liza!! You are your own person, and no one else can make decisions for you!!' She always brought them up so randomly.. I honestly didn't ever pay any attention to her when she blabbered on, and on. But.. I remember. And when I think back to it, I really wish I would have...
I was about 18 years old, just started collage not too long ago. I was always extremely focused on getting good grades, so friends, and relationships came last. I was never really good at making friends anyway. There was a boy, wasn't anythi
Creepypasta the Fighters: Pirate Percy

He is the pirate courier and scout for the Laughingstock. He has the head of a porcelain baby doll with a cracked left eye, red hair, and many ragged and lost parts of old dolls. He is the most cowardly of the crew. Despite that, he's careful and analytical as well as holding a big contempt with the crew.

Powers/Weapons: Pirate Percy has a knife which he might stab his crewmates with in constant usual fear. He also has a little wooden flute which he's talented at unlike the piano, which somehow saved his crewmates of the Laughingstock in the episode "Percy Plays Piano". He even happens to have a dark si

First impression - StVillians Academy
First Time of Home, I wasn't aloud to go outside my House because you see I'm not like the other kids.
My name is Rosa, I'm 10 years old and I'm a Haunted Doll, at lest that's what my parents said I was. I live with them and my sister Julie. I don't remenber what happend for me to be this "thing" the only things I know is that my parents found my like this.

Hoopa ReportHoopa (the Mischief Pokemon) is a legendary Psychic/Ghost-type Pokemon occasionally spotted within the Kalos region, though the location of its true home is unknown. Mischievous to the extreme and tricky beyond their sheer appearances, Hoopa are powerful little beasts that can more than make life difficult for those unable to outsmart them and their incredible teleportation abilities. These little fiends might not look that dangerous, but don’t let your eyes deceive you; they may be small, but when it comes to getting the drop on the opposition, there are few other monsters that can play the disappearing game quite as well as these monsters, if you can even catch them to begin with!
To say the least, Hoopa are mysterious creatures whose true physical makeup is still the subject of some debate, as it does appear to even exist. X-ray analyses of these creatures have revealed literally absolutely nothing; when an image is taken, not even an outline shows up, as if
Jerlita week: Nerdy- Admit itJeremy stared with his mouth hanging slightly open, astonishment and surprise written all over his face.
"I did it!" Aelita exclaimed triumphantly, grinning widely.
"But you How?" Jeremy spluttered. His look of surprise was so comical, Aelita had to laugh.
Jeremy kept staring. No, this this wasn't right. It was luck. Or, was it a fluke, maybe, in his strategy? But he had checked, and there were no flukes. No
"You you didn't!"
"Yes, I did, Jeremy. Admit it."
"But " He stared once more. All the evidence was there. She had done it.
"Admit it," Aelita repeated tauntingly, obviously enjoying it too much.
"You know," Odd said as he sauntered over with that annoying grin, "princess is right."
Jeremy sighed for the second time in less than that many minutes
"Admit it," Aelita said once again, smile not dampening.
"Okay, okay, I admit it. Aelita, you've beaten me at chess."
