"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. This is why you were selected in aiding the rebuilding of this city. Any expectations of salary and supplies will be met within reason, of course. We trust we may rely on you."LXGames Mario by Shadymissionary
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
|My most popular story. Part 4: Tournament of Vengeance in progress|
Dark Mirror: Tournament of Vengeance chapter 25“Charizard, Dragon Breath!” Ash called up to his Pokémon. Charizard complied and sent another powerful beam at Electivire, this one tinted a rich purple. Electivire leaped back at the last moment and was only clipped by the attack.Dark Mirror: Tournament of Vengeance chapter 25 by Shadymissionary
“Electivire, use Thunder!” Paul commanded.
The two antennae on Electivire’s head vibrated with static as the ends became surrounded by electricity. They charged the attack for only a moment before an incredibly powerful yellow beam shot forth and hit Charizard with enough force for the muscles in its wings to seize, and it was sent careening towards the arena floor. Its body began to twitch uncontrollably and despite Ash’s pleads for it to get up and strike back at its foe, Charizard couldn’t move.
“Finish it off, Electivire! Thunder Punch!” Paul shouted at his strongest Pokémon, who nodded and charged with considerable speed towards its downed foe. It reached back as its fist was surrounded in
Dark Mirror: Tournament of Vengeance chapter 24“Thunderbolt!” Ash called out to his friend. He knew he’d have to play it safe and try to keep his as far away from Aggron for as long as possible. Of course, he realized as a bolt of electricity hit Aggron dead on, Paul knew that too.Dark Mirror: Tournament of Vengeance chapter 24 by Shadymissionary
“Flash Cannon!” Right after the yellowish bolt of energy made its way across the arena, another brighter one, silver in colour, was shot from Aggron’s mouth. It managed a hit and Pikachu was sent tumbling back towards Ash. It quickly got up and cried in defiance, its red cheeks sparking readily.
Yellow and silver beams shot back and forth, lighting up the arena as the attacks were repeated again and again. It quickly became clear that both Pokémon were tiring. The last Flash Cannon had missed Pikachu entirely. This did not go unnoticed, especially by Paul.
“Metal Sound!” He snapped in irritation at his Pokémon. The air was once more filled with the ear-splittingly high pitched sound of metal on me
Dark Mirror: Tournament of Vengeance chapter 23This was it. The final round. This would be the round that determined this years Champion of the Lily of the Valley. The stadium was packed with excited patrons, including two gym leaders who got back just in time, and another girl who was not going to miss this battle.Dark Mirror: Tournament of Vengeance chapter 23 by Shadymissionary
The crowd’s cheers reached a crescendo as the two trainers walked into the arena and turned to face each other. While Ash’s expression was as determined as it always was, it was ultimately the same attitude he would have towards another other opponent. Paul, on the other hand, was glaring daggers at the younger trainer, the presumptous little brat who didn’t give him the respect he deserved. The only thing they had in common was their conviction about winning the tournament.
“Drapion, standby for battle!”
“Staraptor, let’s do this!”
The purple scorpion-like Pokémon emerged from its ball first, thrashing its poison-tipped tail and snapping its arm pincers menacingly. S
Dark Mirror: Tournament of Vengeance chapter 22Ash didn’t sleep at all that night. He knew that once he closed his eyes, there would be nightmares. Nightmares of what Alessa would do – not just to him and his Pokemon, but to everyone else.Dark Mirror: Tournament of Vengeance chapter 22 by Shadymissionary
He was such an idiot. If he hadn’t gone to Alessa, she wouldn’t have learned that the Order was still alive. She wouldn’t have any reason to keep killing…she would’ve done whatever it was she was intending to do to make sure ‘she wouldn’t be any trouble’. They would’ve fought – or maybe not – and that would be the end of it.
She could’ve found out about it another way…Pyramid Head was still loose, and he no doubt knew about the Order. He’d have to…it’d make sense. He’d know about the Butcher…hell, he probably tutored him or something. He’d let Alessa know if Ash hadn’t. He was just…incidental.
But that didn’t make him feel any better. Why would it?
