Storm Hawks, Defenders of the Far Side, Chapter 12Aerrow prepared to jump to his feet, but before he could move, Piper shoved herself through the crowd.
"Lower your weapons. He's with us."
As they lowered their spears, Aerrow got to his feet and offered a hand to the young man he had run into. The man accepted and Aerrow pulled him to his feet, nearly knocking him over again when Piper squeezed him into a hug.
"Don't ever run off like that again." Aerrow smiled,
"Why? Were you worried?"
"Yes. Anything could have happened… Aerrow? What's wrong?"
Aerrows smile had faded and his eyes had a detached kind of look in them. He didn't answer her, however, instead turning and grinning at Junko as he barged his way through, muttering apologies all the way.
"Junko!" Aerrow felt himself pulled into a bear hug and felt a real grin spread across his face. It didn't last long, and he pulled away, Junko's place immediately being replaced by Radarr, who curled around his shoulders. Aerrow patted him on the wrist and turned back to the crowd. He smiled
Out of Control, Chapter 5
Leon managed to get a hold on Arthur before he hit the floor, and gently lowered him down.
"Merlin!" he called, jumping when the blue version of him manifested right beside him.
"On it." Holding one of his hands above Arthurs wound, he muttered a few word under his breath that Leon could barely make out.
"Gestepe hole! Þurhhæle…" A few seconds past and Merlin cursed, holding his hand out again and trying another spell,
"Þurhhæle dolgbenn…" This got a reaction out of Arthur, who opened his eyes, and groaned. Merlin sighed as he noticed that the wound didn't seem to be healing as it should, and he realised that the blade may have been enchanted. Sifting through all of the healing spells he knew, he prepared to cast another.
"Sorry Arthur," he muttered, "This is gonna hurt…" motioning for Leon to hold him down, Merlin placed one hand on Arthurs forehead, and one on his wound.
"Þurhhæle licsar min…" he immediately followed this with another, ignoring the pained exclamations that were comin
Out of Control, Chapter 4
Arthur opened his eyes. The side of his face was pressed into some leaves, making him uncomfortable but he didn't move. What had woken him up? Listening closely, he heard a twig snap and a soft curse from the ring of trees to his left. His mind jumped into overdrive. He didn't want to lose the element of surprise, but if he didn't wake everyone up… Shifting his head slightly to look at the others, he realised he needn't have worried. Leon was staring at him, eyes open, as were Percival and Bedivere. He couldn't see Gwaine or Arvin, but he was sure they were both asleep. Arvin wasn't a hunter and Gwaine... Well. He was Gwaine. He moved his hand slightly and saw the others eyes flicker to it. Holding out three fingers, he put one down, watching the small, subtle movements made by the others as they prepared to jump to their feet. Then he pulled in another finger, tensing his muscles to jump up. With the last drop of his finger, he rolled over, and pulled his sword from his sheath a
Storm Hawk, Defenders of the Far Side, Chapter 11Piper and Finn followed the tracker for several minutes, finally arriving at a junction in the tunnels. Taking a sharp left, they nearly ran into a group of Talons. A quick scuffle and they had them all trussed up. Finn grabbed the keys from one of their belts,
"Ya know… This seems far too easy…" Piper shrugged.
"Let's not get our hopes up just yet." She pressed the pressure switch to open the door and froze, dismayed. "See… Don't ever get your hopes up…"
Finn stepped up beside her and whistled at the sight of the intricate web of lasers and crystal traps.
"Wow. Tight security… Radarr?" Radarr ran over to them. "Think you can get to the other side of the corridor? I doubt anyone could get through that…" Radarr nodded and gave him a salute before jumping into the corridor. A few moments worth of jumping, clambering and acrobatics and Radarr had reached the other side of the corridor. Pulling down a lever, he turned off the lasers, leaving Piper and Finns way clear. They ran through the
Out of Control, Chapter 3
Arthur cried out as he was thrown into the wall. Rolling over, he ducked behind a mound of books, watching, dismayed, as Merlin sent wave after wave of red, pulsating energy through the room. What was it he had said…? 'Too much power'. Could it be that he had no choice but to let the energy go? Arthur looked at Gaius, who was crouched behind a table, but only got a shrug and a helpless expression from him. He was distracted when Merlin spoke again.
"Someone get… the window… open… Now!"
Not stopping to wonder just what Merlin was up to, Arthur wove his way around the room and shoved open the window. Turning back to Merlin, he had to duck as a streak of light shot over his head and out into the open air. After a couple of minutes, the light ebbed away, and Arthur got to his feet. Merlin stood, leaning against the table, a pained expression on his face.
"Had to let it out…" he gasped, "It burned…" He tried to push himself upright, but fell back onto the bench.
"Goddamn… curses…" he groane
Out of Control, Chapter 2
Merlin felt himself shaken awake and looked up to see Arthur looking down at him.
"Arthur? What are you…" Merlin realised that it was dark outside, and stifled a yawn. "I told Gaius to wake me up if I fell asleep…"
"Merlin, you have been up for nearly two days straight. I told Gaius to let you sleep. You needed it." He grinned, "And anyway, Gaius found an old spell in one of his books that might be useful…"
Merlin jumped to his feet, and Arthur had to grab him to stop him from tripping over.
"Steady… Honestly Merlin, you really should…" he realised he was speaking to thin air and sighed, running after Merlin. He caught up to him in Gaius' rooms, and he had to control the urge to snap out a remark as he saw Merlin's expression, as he stared at Archie. No matter what anybody said, Merlin seemed to think that it was his fault, though how he could have come to that conclusion, Arthur had no idea. He made his way over to were Gaius was explaining to Merlin about the spell he had found.
Out of Control, Chapter 1
Arthur grinned as Gwaine got knocked down by Percival. He had been acting even more irritating than usual lately, and it felt good to see some humility knocked into him. Percival helped Gwaine to his feet and Arthur could see the pouting expression from across the sparring field. Gwaine stalked off and Bedivere, grinning, stepped into the square opposite Percival. The knights ad been spending most of their spare time competing with each other, and, so far, Percival and Bedivere were on the same level. They had just raised their swords when a blast of blue light flew between them.
It continued in a straight line and collided with a tree, causing it to bend backwards as it absorbed the magic. As one, the entire field turned and stared as Merlin backed into the field, dodging bolts of light. Arthur stared, incredulous, at the suits of armour, firing off rounds of blue light.
"Merlin!" he called, earning a quick look from the young man.
"What?" he called back. Gwaine butted in.
ReflectionsVal's pursuit led him to the foul beast's domain. The hollowed-out cavern reeked of blood and rancid meat. The dim light he had seen as he charged through the tunnel after the monster could now be identified: torches. Rows of mysteriously lit torches lined the walls of the huge cave. At its center was a substantially large labyrinth of mirrors.
He spotted the beast entering.
He spun his silver broadsword in his hand and hurried in behind it.
His garb was a simple blue and white crusader's leather with thick armored pads and reinforcing steel studs. Lightweight and flexible, but quite effective defense against blunt blows and – in a pinch – the slashing claws of the unholy spawn of the earth. All monster-hunters wore a similar variety in Val's experience. It would serve him well in these close quarters of the mirrored maze.
Right, left, forward, left, right he turned, always catching a glimpse of the beast's tail as he wove his way through the corridors. Every so often he sp
