Shadow Shifter

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Cly Novak

A changling made of living shadow. When they are "born" ( which happens when two adult shadow shifters meld together for awhile and create a little one), they wander off and find a living physical form. They take that form, and for the rest of their lives they perfect that form. They cannot copy what they cannot see, so they have to learn about the creature by taking them abpart, learning about their innards and stuff. Some the older ones are so perfect that they are just like all the rest and can even breed pure children. They can create DNA and you would never know what they were. They could be anything and anyone. From that first form, they can take other forms, using the same knowledge. Very old ones can assume hundreds of forms. But the catch is they can only be living things like animals. Otherwise, it doesn't matter. They never have to return to their true form. They can also congeal themselves in their true form to attack something, then become a shadow again and nothing but intense light injected into them can kill them. You can only kill them if you can get an intense light source into them somehow, so that they are burned away from the inside out and can't just assume a form and be unaffected by the light. They can live for as long as the Universe itself, and have been around since its own birth. They can survive the vacuum of space, and even impact into another planet, but getting off the planet is another matter. This one is young, pulling itself into perhaps it's first form. When they first assume a new form, their eyes are black. Crazy creatures.

The Story of the Nemesis (4)

This is the fourth entree. This is where she meets her life long friend, Plague Scar, the adopted father of several dozens of cubs later on. He hasn't met with Hellcat yet (she's not even born yet). The end pretty much gives away the next entree. Sire chokes on raisins, but doesn't die, unfortunately. No, he's not dying for a little while longer. I'll eventually get back to writing it, one of these days. (*goes off and daydreams*)

What's Your Lucky Number? Six? You Lose! (6)

This is were Maxx is finally forced to come face-to-face with his changing perception of life. He is forced to run away to avoid hurting his friends. In his little day trip, he meets Sisserly, a little drakon who later bears his only son. Her family are rather corny, only because they don't live past this chapter.

When Soul Met Rally

Ok, this is when Soul meets her lifelong mate, Rally, the halfling of War Cat and human. You can tell the different types of songs I went through writing this. My stuff is influenced by the music I listen to, sadly enough. Anyway, hope you enjoy it... and no, they don't make love at the end, they're just cuddling. I know it seems like it, but that's in the next entree.

The Fall of Man (1)

Yeah, this was a silly little story, but I thought it was just good enough to post.

Soul's Past

Ok, here's what everyone's been waiting for! *drum roll* The reason why Soul kills her brother! This is the time that Nyck tries to kill her and everything. And the person who saves her from drowning is her father... but SHHHHHHHHHHHHH! No one knows that! *glares around*
