Skysplitter Season 2 Chapter 5: Courtyard Training
Alex ran out of the school, clambering down the orichalum stairs down to the cobblestone path that led to the gate of the school's courtyard.
Standing in the middle of the path, with his back to Alex, was Kyros Drakul, the Grandmaster.
"Congratulations Alex, I'm very impressed. You've really been proving yourself as a true Titan but, you're lacking in some very crucial areas."
His back was still to Alex.
"What do you mean sir?"
"I mean that, and please do not address me as sir, you are lacking in some vital abilities that every Titan, especially one about to go on a mission such as yours, will need. By the way, have you gathered any troops yet?"
"One sir. Virginia Cooke, maybe."
Skysplitter Season 2 Chapter 4: Round One
"It's time to Rumble!!" Announced Garren Sykes as the combatants made their way into the arena.
Alex wore his Titan uniform, also known as a Catalyst, into battle that day. It was a black jumpsuit with blue and gray boots, chest plate, shoulder pads, and gauntlets. Over his eyes he wore a blue-hued eye mask.
His foe, Vincent LaFolle, wore a blue button-down and black pair of jeans. In his hand was a thin silver plated hand gun.
Sykes leapt from the stands into the arena with them. When they all met in the middle of the arena, he handed each of the warriors a small device, telling them to attach it to their Catalysts.
"Welcome on and all to Rumble!! Tonight, in Round One of this year's tournament we have second year Alex Black---" He was interrupted by the crowd of North Tower students viciously cheering on their teammate. " an
Skysplitter Season 2 Chapter 3: The Life
The next morning started early for Alex. He leapt from his soft blue-sheeted bed, showing in the dorm bathroom and throwing on a school uniform (white button-down, black slacks, and a North Tower blue tie) all within a matter of fifteen minutes. Making his way down to the cafeteria, Alex found his own thoughts muffled by the blaring voice of Darkside, the suffocating evil drowned out anything good.
Alex punched at the thick white wall of the stairwell, leaving his knuckles slightly red. Ignoring the pain the best he could, Alex kept pushing his way into the cafeteria, finding Virginia at a table alone.
The minute he reached her, she looked up, almost as if she was expecting him to show up right then.
"Morning!" She said, kissing him on the cheek, "How are you?"
"I'm fine," he replied, not clueing her in on how he was really feeling.
Skysplitter Season 2 Chapter 2: Back to School
Alex, Noah, and Rane reached the Underbranch station fifteen minutes before departure, dragging along bags and suitcases full of luggage. The station was only a couple blocks away from the Davies' house, but, with the rain, it was impossible to walk to that day. The entrance was hidden in the back of a dilapidated old bar.
Underneath the bar lay the station, a large chamber with fluorescent lights keeping it bright. The floors, walls, and ceilings were all made of some form of white material that seemed to quiet anything that touched it.
Alex set down his bags, looking around for anyone he knew.
Turning around, he found himself face-to-face with Brennan Ellision.
"Alex!!" He called out happily. "How's it been man?"
Brennan was a North Tower student like Alex, except that he was now entering his fourth year at Gaia Academy. He was a Slasher Titan, a superhuman who could wield any bladed weapon masterfully without any training.
"Hey Brennan! I'm doing, uh, great!" He paused,
Skysplitter Season 2 Chapter 1: The Voice
The summer night air was cool and brisk, the perfect weather for spending the weekend out in the woods.
Alex awoke late that night, his mind kept him from sleep. Something tore at his brain, an inkling of an idea, a dangerous concept that poisoned his mind with every thought.
He tried to shove it away, but it kept coming back. Frustrated, Alex unzipped his tent, stepping out onto the cool ground in his bare feet. He trudged through the campsite past his friends who slept out on the cold ground underneath the stars. He made his way through the forest to an open area, a lush field of well-groomed grass.
Standing in the field, unmoving, Alex lifted one arm out in front of him, his hand clenched in a fist.
Instantly, his hand ignited into a blazing ball of red energy. He whipped his arm back, then forward again, launching the blast across the field, exploding a tree nearly sixty feet away.
He did the same thing over and over again, scorching three more trees, his face now dripp
Skysplitter Season 1 Chapter 11: Finale.
Alex opened his eyes to find himself in the medical wing of Gaia Academy, his body bandaged up. Lying in the bed next to him was Virginia, who was sleeping peacefully, her left leg bandaged up tight.
He closed his eyes again, recollecting everything that had happened the night before.
Mordred and the rings
Darkside and the ritual
The truth about Alex's father
The battle with Mordred
His memories concluded with the meeting with his mother, an event Alex would never forget.
"Alex?" He opened his eyes again to the sound of his name, "Alex!! You're okay!!" Noah and Rane stood next to his bed.
Rane rushed to him, hugging him tightly until he groaned.
"I'm sorry!!" She said, backing away, "What happened to you two??" She gestured to Virginia.
Alex explained the events in the Restricted Department: How Mordred took Alex's ring, how he summoned Darkside to take over Alex, and how Alex's mother intrerfered. Alex explained the ritual, and how his mother saved
Skysplitter Season 1 Chapter 10: Prelude
Alex and Mordred threw the energy blasts at each other, the beams collided midair, fighting violently for control over the results of their clash. The green and red energies blistered the ground around them, scorching the earth and underbrush nearby.
The cool night air exploded to life with the heat of their energy beams. Mordred's blast seemed to dominate the clash, forcing Alex's energy back towards him.
"Do you even understand why I'm doing this Alex?! Your father destroyed my family's good name!! He sullied our legacy! The world needs to see the truth about us and how YOUR father was the Savant!! Not mine!!"
"Shut up!!" Alex bellowed, "My father made a mistake saving someone who was precious to him!!"
Alex's energy blast exploded with ferocity, overpowering Mordred's beam.
"My father tried to help yours find another way!! But he ignored him and chose a darker path!!"
Suddenly, the energy blasts exploded, throwing them in opposite directions. They balanced themselv
Skysplitter Season 1 Chapter 9: Awakening
"Alright! Everyone line up! The tour starts in ten minutes and we need to go over some ground rules!" Phoria Waters announced, "first off! Stay in the lines designated please!! We have a lot of people here and we need to keep track of you all!!"
The other North Tower staff members walked up and down the line making sure everyone was in place.
"Two! No wandering from the designated pathways! Three and probably the most important: Do NOT touch anything! There are things in the Restricted Department much worse than you've ever experienced before! Now that you've all been warned, let's get started!!"
The tour began and the Restricted Department doors were opened. The first hallway was pitch-black, the only things lighting it were neon blue fluorescent bars on either side of the tour group. The North Tower students were led through that first room and into the next one.
In the second room, they met up with a teacher who was waiting for them.
He was a gangly, thirty-something yea
Skysplitter Season 1 Chapter 8: Launch
As the days got shorter and the time between then and Christmas became shorter, the school days seemed to speed up. Finals for Alex's academic classes came up quickly, and he seemed to spend more and more time buried in a book.
The Special Ed. Class moved from the Stealth-Step into their final technique.
"So, now that you've all completed both the Heart Bomb and the Stealth-Step, it's time to move on to our most dangerous technique: Jaunting!" Tania Cyclos addressed the class one cool November day, "Jaunting is a technique used to move oneself from one spot to another. There are two different forms of Jaunting: long range, and short range. This year, I'll be teaching you the short range technique!"
She snapped her fingers and all of the chairs in the room disappeared into thin air.
"To Jaunt, you have to concentrate on a destination with all your mind power..."
Tania disappeared, and then reappeared behind the entire student body.
"You then picture yourself moving fr
Parenting for Sex AddictsThe half-day.
We are not those folks that need an occasion to try. And that’s what they call it, too. Trying. As if the very idea of it is taxing. It’s not taxing and we are not those people.
No. We do not go by some magical calendar. Schedules aren’t really our thing in general. That’d be too organized. Too stuffy. Too… I don’t know… too planned. And we’re not the type of people whom plan.
If we could—plan—our lives would be much different. I think. It’s hard to say because this is how we’ve always been.
Our very togetherness is a result of impulse. I’m almost certain that the amount of time it took us to decide to move in together was significantly shorter than the amount of time it took us to remember each other’s names. We might have had our first conversation moments after that first… what I mean to say is we didn’t plan. Because planning would have been much t
