Escape From The Far Side, Intro Taster"OW!" Or at least thats what Aerrow presumed Radarr had been trying to get out, seeing as Junko had fallen on him. They had been falling over each other around the cockpit for the last couple of minutes, as Stork swung the Condor up, down, left and right, spinning it and looping it in an attempt to dodge the gint vultures that were intent on breaching the cockpit. The red glow in their eyes showed that they were yet another group that had been unfortunate to be captured and subjucated by Master Cyclonis, who had been tracking down the most dangerous creatures she could find in the three months since she had escaped to the far side. How she had managed it with these creatures was anyones guess, seeing as they were one of the most viscious creatures in the far side, and were also one of the most reclusive.They were strong, fast and utterly merciless when it came to their victims, hence the current situation. Aerrow hit the railing in the centre of the room, and groaned, ralising that he
Robin Hood. The Legend Begins. Chapter 2 Robin grinned as Hunter shot an arrow into a target, spearing the centre. The two had become friends in the last two weeks, as Robin had been teaching the men to shoot. Several had really stood out, and of those, Robin had got to know three, Hunter, Matthew, who they all called Matt, and Christopher, which they all shortened to Chris. He had also got to know two men called Nick and Joseph, though he preferred to be called Joey. He got on well with the others, but they had all become particularly good friends, especially as all of them, aside from Chris, were under twenty, with Chris being twenty six. Robin also assumed that it was because they all treated him normally, and not like some kind of God sent Messiah. He sighed and called that the lesson was over. He strolled over to John, who was grinning at him. "What are you laughing at?" Robin grumbled. "Oh, just the fact that you get annoyed so easily..." He smirked. "Anyway, aren't you going to ask me how it went?" John had

My thoughts were in turmoil... What have I... Something snapped in me... creating order from the chaos... I needed to get him to Gaius... I scoop him up, getting to my feet... recalling the time I did the same thing when he drank that poison... a lifetime ago... But then something else comes to me... I turn to glance at Morgana... she doesnt look as if she is going anywhere but still... But Merlin... a small groan from him makes my mind up for me... I see his eyes open slightly, focusing on me but before he can say anything, they close again... I start running... dodging piles of rocks and the now frozen statues... He must have destroyed it... and the Shadow Stone... how else could he have escaped that land of nightmares... and he thanked Merlin by giving him a wound that could easily be fatal... No... He was going to be fine... he had to be... I finally made it to the steps, juming up them as fast I could... then I had to stop as a group of men blocked my way... they
The Revelaion of Emerys. Chapter 8, Nightmares...Merlin pounded through the corridors, haeded for the courtyard, hoping that he would get there in time, hoping that Morgana would not be able to resist twisting the knife. He grinned ruefully at the appropriateness of the metaphor. He rounded a corner and sped along the corridor towards the entrance chamber.
Athur left Merlin and Gaius, pouring over books, and head over to the only place he could associate with Morgana. Her old room. Along the way, he stopped in to his own chambers, hoping that Gwen was there, safe, and sure enough, he found her asleep on the bed. He went over to her, and leaned over, kissing her gently on the forehead. He didnt wake her, not wanting to risk her waking up and hating him... even if Merlin had said that they might be unaffected by the effects of the stone. He sighed. Damn Morgana. He gently stroked Gwens cheek, tugging his hand away when she stirred, and backing away. He took one last glance at her before leaving the room, gently shutting th
The Revelation of Emerys. Chapter 7, StrongerThe hall was filled with men, either fighing each other or trying to get into fights. Arthur and Merlin stood facing the scene, and turned their heads to look at each other. At the exact same time they said
"The stone..." Arthur ducked a chairleg that had been thrown at him, and jumped out of the way of the pair of soldiers who were grappling on the floor. He turned to Merlin, "Is there anything you could... you know...". Merlin hid a sigh, and scanned the room, noticing a few of the men had started to fall asleep.
"I dont have to," he replied, "they are so tired they are going to fall asleep soon anyway... and in the state they're in, they dont think, just lash out." Sure enough, over the course of a few minuts, most of the remaining men had fallen o the ground and lay snoring. Only a few, including Elyon, Leon, Percival and several of the other knights remained, grappling with each other. Arthur groaned,
"They are trained to go for up to four days without sleep..." he muttered, just
The Revelation of Emerys. Chapter 6, ReunionArthur looked up, and he felt a feeling of euphoria wash through him at the sight of Merlin. He actually came. He risked the consequences and came... He watched, a mixture of emotions tumbling though him, as he witnessed the stone shattering, the men falling unconscious, the reassurance from Merlin that they were fine, and the silent exchange that seemed to travel between the two sorcerors, ending in Morgana fleeing the hall. He met Merlins gaze, and was pleased to find no anger or bitterness there. He was ashamed, however, to see the fleeting look of fear that seemed to pass through him before he managed to hide it, yet also grateful. He was afraid, yet he still came to Arthurs side when he needed it. He saw him turn and vanish, and ran out of the hall, motioning for the others to stay, and ran up the stairs to meet him. They met about halfway down. Arthur held a hand out to stop Merlins speedy descent, so that he didnt fall on top of him, then pushed him back a few steps.
