"Boss, I know how you feel about rock music and that former call girl, Lynch. But the stadium needs the money, and the bands always bring it in. We've had dozens of suggestions to boost our profits, and the concerts are the only things that are respectable enough. So I'm gonna forget the lyrics they sing and hire'em tonight. We'll discuss 'ethics' and 'taste' while we're counting the cash."
The Las Venturas stadium wasn't usually this packed. The soccer games and public speeches by the mayor were always attended by diehard sports fans and people eager to boo the politicians. It was always only half-full each time, as people and therianths in the city found more engaging things to entertain them. But now it was filled with men, women, therianths and countless others, all eager for the music to start.
Casey Lynch was in the spotlight, with every creature in the stadium having their eyes and ears on her. Most would

That is why we are minimizing the amount of workforce brought from the surface. We have been assured that 'Mario Bros Inc' is the most reliable handyman firm available.

Mario drummed his fingers patiently as he sat in the bathysphere. He was looking forward to his destination. By blocking off the water at strategic points, he was able to drain the pumping station near Dionysus Park, emptying out enough water for actual work to be done. This would probably be his biggest challenge yet, but he was up for it.
A voice came on the handyman's commlink. "Mario, can you hear me?"
"Of course." was the cheery reply.
Sofia continued. "I was hop

Pokemon Dark Mirror prologue The definition of a monster is subjective.Pokemon Dark Mirror prologue by Shadymissionary
The dictionary understanding of a monster is something inhuman. However, the variety of monsters, fictional and real, is so complex and deep that the simple dictionary definition becomes obsolete almost immediately. There is only one known way to organize 'monsters' as a whole, dividing them into three categories.
There are what are called 'Pocket Monsters'. Pokemon, for short. Creatures wielding the very elements and using them for powerful combat, and yet can be tamed. Befriended. Commanded. By children, no less.
Children such as Ash Ketchum. He is young. Brave. Inexperienced, by the standards of many. In truth, however, he has seen far more than any of his rivals could dream. He has ridden on the back of legends, fought with the gods themselves, and triumphed over impossible adversity. And he is still but a child.
The second class of monster is 'human monsters'. Those draped in the skin of men, but with blackest hearts, eager to pervert

DHvV: Cruella's Retreat part 2Agrabah was a land of exotic animals. There were, of course, camels and horses used for transport, eagles and vultures seen in the skies. Being built near an oasis, it wasn’t infrequent for residents to see Oryxs and leopards, or even visitors from the Savannah…Mufasa and the Sultan had been on fairly good terms.DHvV: Cruella's Retreat part 2 by Shadymissionary
But there was more than that. The Arabians who lived in Agrabah believed that the best way to demonstrate international diplomacy was to import/export local wildlife – living proof that strangers from a strange land could still be welcome and thrive. Of course, it helped that the royal family had more than enough wealth to create a veritable zoo on the palace grounds. Elephants, llamas, peacocks, monkeys, dogs, exotic birds, cats…Jasmine’s pet tiger Rajah had originally been a gift from the Indian jungle. It had become quite the tourist attraction in it’s own right. And there was room for more – a persistent rumor was that the Sultan w
DHvV: Cruella's Retreat part 1Ratcliffe’s base was an old war fortress on the other end of Nottingham forest, closer to the sea and Grimhilde’s castle than Prince John’s palace. From where the fort stood, the residents could clearly see the burning residue of the Firebird’s return, a huge section of scorched earth where once a mighty forest stood. Several scattered trees were still ablaze with the Firebird’s flames, stuck in perpetual destruction.DHvV: Cruella's Retreat part 1 by Shadymissionary
It had been a harrowing experience for everyone present. Most of the hunters had fled to the Savannah, where they’d figured that the flames wouldn’t be able to follow them. Their quarry had also scattered themselves to the winds. Ratcliffe had the sense to have his sorcerous allies magically fireproof the fort when he’d heard that Hades intended to resurrect the monstrous phoenix, but the soldiers inside were still terrified that the blaze would come up to consume them, or that the black smoke would suffocate them, or the fi
