TGU Chapter ThirteenThe Ghost UnitChapter ThirteenWrong Landing. Fortune had entered a special pod made for launching "Drop Pods" in-atmosphere, and he was awaiting the launch. The sound of machinery beneath the Drop Pod whirred to life, an incredible ring of light before he could feel heat through the thermal walls in the pod."Jeez, It's getting hot in here!" Fortune growled through the radio."Well, Sorry. It`s not being launched from Atmosphere, so it doesn't have the Vacuum that cools it instantly!""I`m not complaining, just saying!"The whirl of a turbine in the Drop Pod signalled it`s coming to life."Entering Coordinates for drop." Opea spoke through the helmets in-built speakers."HURRY UP AND LAUNCH THE DAMNED THING!""One moment!" The technician spoke as he entered the Coords himself.The sound of something being detonated underneath the pod was heard, then pressure started building around and beneath the pod."Readying pressure launch..."Fortune gave a quiet, but audible, growl.

Little Scales Part V!Little ScalesPart VThe Moonlit Glade. Scales was still unconscious, as the night settled over the glade. Operia had faded, but as she did, a small "band" of crystal had formed around the ankle of Scales' right fore-paw. The Glade was bathed in a subtle moonlight, the sounds of the late-night forest filled the air, whilst Scales lay curled up in the dirt."Wake up little one..."A silent whimper left Scales as he slowly rose, a chill was in the air, a light fog limited Scales currently short vision."Good boy, Scales. Now go deeper into the forest. You'll be much, much safer there..."The forest floor was cold and damp, and as Scales got to his feet, he moved his paws slightly. He didn't like the cold. "You`ll be safer there, in the deeper Glades." Scales started taking little, clumsy steps, heading in the direction he thought was the "Deeper Glades". "Turn around. It's the other direction." He slowly turned, trying not to slip and fall. Scales
OverFlowOverFlowBy Ace...Emotions are like an unending current which we all struggle against.But sometimes, we dam them up, and hide them behind a fake smile.A small defence, that never seems to fail.But, On occasion.Everything floods through, the rising torrent bashing against our control.We lose to this, for it is inevitable.No matter how long it may take.Even if we throw up walls, and steel ourselves.We all succumb to the OverFlow.
Little Scales PT4 Of ???Little ScalesPart Four. Scales had passed out, whilst in the presence of Lyle, his old, forgotten, human friend. Lyle panicked, and tried to awake the unconscious hatchling. "Little Dragon! Wake up! Wake up!! What happened?! It wasn't me, was it?!"A small glow appeared around Scales, in the shape of another dragon's paws. Operia was showing herself; as a full adult in form."Scales... It's okay. This human won`t harm you...""What the...?! Who are you.... WHAT are you?! I can...""I am Operia. A dragon's spirit. And the one who turned this little one into a Hatchling with no recollection of his past, as did I take away his ability to talk until he ages enough.""Operia? That's a stupid name....""Do you disrespect the very ancient in-front of you? You deserve a punishment, you insolent piece of pale-skinned refuse.""What are you? A thousand?"A low growl could be heard coming from Operia, as she stood and raised her front fore-paw. It suddenly became a solid entity as she s
Little Scales Pt3 Of ??Little ScalesPart Three. Lyle had headed into the woods in search of Traes, unaware of the change he had taken. He found Traes without actually knowing that the crimson-violet Dragon was actually his close friend. Scales was asleep at this moment, and didn't know his old friend was standing a mere foot away. Scales lay on the dirt and common debris scattered about, unaware of his old human friend reaching towards him.He woke up as he suddenly felt his sensitive wings get touched by something--or someone--unknown; he shot up and immediately glared upwards at the human.Scales made no attempt to remember whether he knew this human, or to communicate. Instead, he stepped back, letting shyness go over himself as a way of being cautious."Well, you woke up quickly, little lizard... Come on, I'm taking you to my friend Traes!..." Lyle spoke as quickly as he could think, while he attempted to grab Scales.But Scales, instead, bit him so hard that blood began to drip as Lyle recoile
Little Scale PT2 of ???Little Scales.Part Two.Scales stepped forward and willingly took on this change. He felt his memories clear; he felt his pain lift as it was replaced by the sensation of his body changing.Scales stood, as the spirit-egg Operia watched over his slow change, from his transformation from Human to Dragon Hatchling."Little One. You seem at ease, even accepting of your new form even though I am forcing it upon you.""That's because I've been feeling so much pain as a human... But it`s lifted.""I see, Little one. So that pain is gone... Your transformation won`t cause you pain, I hope...""Even if it does...""You understand."Scales began to feel an itch, something felt like it was crawling up his arms and legs. A Feeling of weakness spread over him, which caused him to fall to his hands and knee's."It has begun."Scales clenched his fists as he noticed his skin turn a pink-like hue and harden into small plates."S-Scales.... Actual..." He trie
Little Scales PT1 of ???Little Scales.Two people were out in a forest.Traes and Lyle.They were camping there on a trip, and the younger of the two, Traes, who referred to himself as "Scales", was in his tent, asleep.This is where the story begins.They were camping there on a road trip, and the son, Traes, who referred to himself as "Scales", was in his tent, asleep.This is where the story begins.Scales was asleep soundly in his tent, over the past few days he had been feeling pain throughout his entire body.He didn't alert anybody, not even his friend, Lyle.A sound like a beautiful, yet drawn out wind chime could be heard throughout the camp through the night. It made everyone but Scales drift into a deep sleep, where as it woke Scales up.Scales didn't make a sound or say anything as he sat up and grabbed a torch, stood up and exited his tent. But when he looked in the direction of the sound, he saw a bright, entrancing light. He wanted to go towards it as if attracted to the light.He strode through
