Exception to the Rule
Anyone who crosses an Assassin generally doesn't live to see another day. However, there is an exception to every rule...
Exception to the Rule
Ezio sat behind the large desk in the Assassin's headquarters in Constantinople. He was skimming over a few letters, occasionally referring to the map spread out over the desktop as he debated how many and which assassins to send in response to the various requests for aide. Yusuf and a few other assassins sat at the table in the opposite corner, eating lunch and sharing humorous stories.
Everyone instinctively glanced toward the entrance when they heard the door open, relaxing when one of their own descended the long staircase. Conversation petered off when two foreigners, a man and a woman, followed the assassin into the main hall.
"Yerman, what is this?" Yusuf asked, keeping his voice neutral as he stood. After all, outsiders generally weren't allowed inside the Assassin's Dens without a good reason.

Side Effects of Mako (Part 2)
Side Effects of Mako
Pre AC. After falling into a pool of mako, Cloud wakes up in the back of the truck on his way to that fateful mission in Nibelheim. With so little time, can he truly change anything that happened that day? And, why does he keep hearing Tifa's voice when she's not around? Not your typical time-travel story.
Chapter 2
The emergency town meeting went about as Cloud had expected. The people of Nibelheim were a hardy lot by necessity, living in such a remote area without much contact with anyone else. They didn't take the order to evacuate well at all.
The meeting had been going strong for two hours before Cloud slipped away, leaving Zack with the mayor to convince the general populace. He wasn't in a position to contribute to the discussion and the arguments were starting to get repetitive.
Cloud walked down the main street that ran through the town, eyes on the ground as his thoughts wandered. Why do they have to be so obstinate? Can't they see we're

Chapter 1
The sky was overcast, the mountain air heavy with humidity as the dark gray clouds hung overhead. The ground was still muddy from the rainfall the previous night, making the steep trails treacherous to the careless hiker. A blonde swordsman riding a black chocobo steadily climbed the slippery path, the bird's claws digging deeply into the mud with each step. Bright blue eyes scanned the visible landscape, continually searching for some sign of the reason he was here. Cloud Strife sighed, glancing up again at the darkening sky as he thought back to the phone call that had brought him out here.

Ghost Ship Part 2
Ghost Ship (Part 2)
Cloud and company run afoul of the ghost ship rumored to haunt the passage to the underwater reactor.
"Show yourself!" Cloud clenched his fists, trying to quell the urge to rub the goose bumps covering his arms. He refused to show any sign of weakness before this unknown entity. However, despite his best efforts, the blonde took a startled step backwards as two dark eyes appeared inches away from his own.
"It is you!" the voice exclaimed as the rest of his face formed around the eyes. "I never thought I'd see you again! How many years has it been?"
"Do you know this person, Cloud?" Vincent asked, intrigued despite the circumstances.
"Uh..."
"Oh, come on! You can't have forgotten me!" The apparition floated back as the rest of his body appeared as if to help jog the blonde's memory. "First Infantry, Barack C. You bunked underneath me for a year! We even applied for the SOLDIER program at the same time!"

Ghost Ship Part 1
GhostShip Part 1
Cloud and company run afoul of the ghost ship rumored to haunt the passage leading to the underwater reactor.
Two men and a large feline walked swiftly down the dingy gray hallways of the ShinRa military base. The leader was blonde, his hair cut short and falling naturally into messy spikes. The soft glow emitting from his deep blue eyes marked him as one infused with mako. He wore a faded dark blue SOLDIER uniform and carried an enormous sword in his hand. It was between five and six feet long from tip to handle and the blade was at least a foot wide, but Cloud Strife carried it with ease.
His companion was several inches taller, with ebony locks cascading down his back. The dark haired man was dressed in black, a tattered red cloak hanging off his shoulders and swishing softly behind him as he walked. His left hand was encased in a golden, clawed gauntlet, and his right hand never strayed far from the gun on his hip. Crimson eyes stared out of pale face

Of Demons and Dementors
YYH/HP crossover. Sometimes, one is just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The light of the full moon spilled out from behind the clouds, bathing the dark landscape with its silvery luminescence. However, its pale beams could not penetrate the thick, leafy canopy of the forest, leaving the inhabitants therein to wander in the darkness. Three beings picked their way through the undergrowth, two seeming to move with ease between the shadowy trunks while the third rode sidesaddle on an oar, flying silently behind them.
"Remind me why we're here again," the shortest member of the group groused, irritation coloring his words.
"We were offered probation over prison," his taller companion answered. "And we accepted."
"But, why are we here?"
"I told you, Hiei. We got a report of demon activity in the area," came the chipper reply from behind. "And, since Yuusuke is busy with another case, Koenma-sama thought it would be better to send you two to take care of it instead of waiting fo

Meibatsu One Shot
Saiyuki. Post Kamisama arc. Gojyo finds out just how upset everyone was with him when he left.
Gojyo grumbled to himself as he walked down the street, arms laden with groceries. "Why can't the stinking monk do the shopping?" he groused, making sure nothing fell from the over-stuffed bags. "If we're getting stuff for everyone, then everyone should have to take turns buying it!" He carefully maneuvered his way through the crowded streets. "Of course, it would be nice if I had at least a little help," he muttered, his mind wandering back to the conversation that morning.
Hakkai finished tying off the bandages, sitting back to study his work. "There you are, Goku. All of the beads went straight through, which is good. I don't think you want to repeat the experience of having one removed, although I would be a bit more gentle than Kamisama was," he said.
The teen didn't reply, staring moodily at the ground.

Sign
Yu Yu Hakusho. Kurama returns to the human world after the Makai Tournament, wondering if the hectic life he has led for the past three years is really over.
    A gray cat sat in an alley, licking its paws after a meal. When it was finished, it jumped up onto a dumpster, curling up and closing its eyes. The nap didn't last long as something landed on the lid next to it, startling the creature into flight. A young man straightened up from his crouching position, glancing back at the wall above him. The bricks were still rippling from his entry, but it was only a few seconds before they settled, appearing solid once more. The young man was wearing a denim jacket and white pants, with a backpack slung over his shoulder. His long, red hair flowed down his back, swaying slightly as he moved. Vibrant emerald eyes cautiously took in his surroundings, seeming to absorb everything without giving anything away. Satisfied no one had seen him exit the portal, the young man lig

Kataki
Yu Yu Hakusho. How can revenge be truly taken when one cannot kill humans, despite the circumstances? Even when someone else carries out the sentence, the need for retribution still remains.
It was early morning. He could see the sun coming up over the mountains through the talismans attached to the window. He felt it odd that no birds had come to greet him this morning, but dismissed the notion as soon as it had occurred as unimportant. His gaze swept the empty room, idly noting that the chair he was sitting on was the only piece of furniture in it. The only exit was blocked by cold iron bars, also covered in talismans designed to keep him trapped inside. Although he had never actually been in this room before, he knew exactly where he was. The highest room in the tallest tower of Tarukane's mansion.
Fear wrapped it's icy fingers around his heart as he heard footsteps echoing down the long hallway leading to his prison. A pit of dread formed in his stomach as a distant part of his min

Foe From the Past One Shot
Yu Yu Hakusho. A realistic view on how Kurama deals with the reappearance of a certain enemy, one previously thought to be dead. A mistake that will not be duplicated.
The remnants of the stadium were dark and still, the wind howling as it blew through the ruins. A little ways off from the destroyed structure, a mound of carcasses was piled high-- the remains of those that had lost their lives in the Dark Tournament. Scavengers were eating the meat off the cadavers, leaving slightly chewed skeletons in their wake as they moved through the pile.
After picking the bone clean, one vulture hopped over to another corpse, pecking some of the skin on a pale, waxy hand. The bird tried to fly away as the hand moved, grabbing the scavenger and snapping its neck in one fluid motion before tossing it aside. The other vultures and buzzards were startled into flight, circling the mass grave as one body pulled itself free from the pile of death, standing and surveying the area around it. The other an

What is 'Sick'?
Yu Yu Hakusho. Kurama's sick. Hiei's curious. The idea for the story belongs to RainyDayz.
The rain fell, its soft melody filling the night air as it landed on the roofs of the buildings, sliding down only to be caught in the rain gutters and falling to fill the streets below. Small rivers ran alongside the curb, splashing up to drench pedestrians as the cars drove by.
A fire demon sat huddled in a tree, watching the scene below him for lack of anything better to do. Not being able to leave the city due to the terms of his probation, he was forced to find what shelter he could to wait out the storm. He cursed as the leaves above him gave out under the weight of the water, pouring the rain they had collected upon his head. A ningen walked underneath him, the Jagan glowing softly as he put a suggestion in her mind to check the time. 11:27? Kurama's human mother should be asleep by now, he thought, jumping from the tree and quickly making his way to the fox's house.

Trial And Error
Yu Yu Hakusho. During the Dark Tournament, Kurama recieved a potion from Suzuka that could change him into his youko form. Kurama experiments with the potion before the fight and finds it is a little difficult to get the dosage correct...
Kurama stared at the bottle in his hand, pensively. He thought back to what Suzuka had told him upon receiving it.
"The bottle, Kurama, contains the Fruit of the Previous Life, handpicked from the upper realms of the Spirit World. Allow me the pleasure of a few more words and I'll give you a warning. This fight was the first time those items were used. I still can't tell you exactly how they work, or what side effects they could have upon their user."
Well, as they say in the human world: Nothing ventured, nothing gained, Kurama thought, setting off in search of Hiei. The fire demon was in the woods unwrapping the bandages from his right arm when Kurama found him.
Hiei didn't look up at Kurama's approach. "What do you want, fox?"
