Annabelle the DiverIt wasn't normal for Annabelle Gwendolyn Griffon to be wearing a scuba suit as opposed to her usual maid's uniform, but considering what she was about to do, it was definitely to be expected.Annabelle the Diver by sonicinterface
After making sure all her equipment was properly on and her oxygen tank had plenty of air in it, the griffon plunged into the water. It was like entering another world; the water diluted the light to create an almost otherworldly atmosphere, and aquatic wildlife of all shapes and sizes-- jellyfish, eels, even a whale-- darted around her.
Focus, Annabelle. Remember what you're here to find.
A hand tapped Annabelle's wing, and she turned around. A brown female bat dressed in black, wearing some sort of ankle bracelet, and carrying a portable GPS screen was drifting in the water beside her. Oddly, she wasn't wearing any goggles or breathing equipment, but seemed to be doing just fine without them.
"Have you seen a scuba-diving otter anywhere around here?"
TCT Personal: Crying WolfThe residential area was quieter than a library. There wasn't a car on the street, nor a person in the yards. Wolf glanced at house after house as he paced down the sidewalk.TCT Personal: Crying Wolf by sonicinterface
Most of these houses are made of brick... that one's made of wood, but it's nailed together really well and I think it's got a concrete foundation... I'd have a hard time blowing it down. Ugh! Is this really something I should be thinking about every time I walk past a house?
"HELP! ANYONE! HELP!"
Wolf blinked. That voice had come from nearby. Deciding that it would be wrong of him to ignore it, whatever it was, he took off running. It didn't take him long to trace the call to a tall ash tree in between two houses. Squinting, the brown wolf could make out a speck of orange near the top of the tree.
"ARE YOU THE ONE CALLING FOR HELP?" Wolf shouted to the tree's top.
"YES!" came the response. "I C-CAN'T CLIMB DOWN! I'M T-TOO SC-SCARED!"
The Prize Machine: Prequel -Toon-Animafrica (pronounced "anim[ation] africa" and commonly abbreviated as "A.A.") was best described as an African jungle version of Toon Town. This was reflected in its architecture, its general culture, and of course its citizens.The Prize Machine: Prequel -Toon- by sonicinterface
Some of A.A.'s better-known citizens included Tinker (a proud inventor monkey whose creations always worked perfectly... except when they didn't), Polly (a chatty and excitable female parrot who was always spreading rumors about every subject to anyone who would listen), Dale (a crocodile who was always looking for something to eat), Sydney (an anaconda who seemed to be a magnet for bad luck), and last but not least, Jay and Kay (a brother-and-sister pair of elephants who were always looking for ways to one-up one another, but could put aside their differences when necessary).
There was never a boring day in Animafrica. Just the week before, Tinker had put together an automatic taffy-making machine, but things had gone horribly awry when Dale deci
The Sun Kitsune (Redux)Once upon a time, there was a kitsune who lived on the Sun. He had been banished there long ago for crimes against the gods.The Sun Kitsune (Redux) by sonicinterface
As centuries passed, the kitsune grew bored of staring into space all the time. He found himself longing to revisit the Earth, which had surely evolved massively during his exile.
One day (or whatever one can substitute for "day" when one lives on the Sun), he decided it was time. He chose a sunbeam he liked, clung to it, and rode it down to Earth.
...At least, that was the plan.
It goes without saying to anyone who knows anything about astronomy that the Sun is incredibly large compared to the Earth; as such, very little of its light ever actually gets there. In addition to being such a small target, the Earth is also moving, and even light doesn't make the trip instantaneously.
However, the kitsune knew all this.
As the human race itself can testify, one does not spend hundreds of years watching the cosmos without noticing a pattern or t
Treed Cat Tales: TmaneeaPrompt from Deviant Universe: You've Gotta be KittenTreed Cat Tales: Tmaneea by sonicinterface
A signal of unknown origin is affecting the instincts of cats around the world, driving them to the tops of trees and leaving them afraid to come down! Is your hero above rescuing cats from trees? It's time to find out!
"Benny? BENNY? Where are you, Benny?"
It's only natural for a mother to worry when her son goes missing. It's even more so when said son happens to be a superpowered hero. That explained the look on Catherine Brewster's face as she turned the house upside down, looking for her son.
I've looked everywhere in the house and he's not around. But there's nothing on the news, so he can't be out getting into trouble. Hm... maybe I'll give him a ring on the comm, just in case.
Catherine took her position at the computer and refreshed the social media feeds one more time, noting several mentions of cats spontaneously running up trees and not wanting to come down. Zero SaberCat mentions, though. So she

Treed Cat Tales: KathaliaAs the new girl at the fire department, Kelly got all the easy jobs.Treed Cat Tales: Kathalia by sonicinterface
Like anyone else, Kelly had become a firefighter to save lives. She dreamed of being the hero when lives were at stake. But instead, she was stuck working the water pump and rescuing cats from trees while her colleagues were out being the heroes she wanted to be. Not a day of work passed by when she wasn't jealous-- nor was she ever in need of a reason to be so.
Today was no different. The fire station had received a call about a cat stranded in a tree just outside of town, and the job had naturally been delegated to Kelly. She wasn't any happier about it than usual, but a cat's life was more valuable than no life at all.
Kelly quickly suited up in front of the mirror. Her firefighter's outfit was run-of-the-mill, a thick jacket with yellow stripes and a matching helmet, going well with her red hair and green eyes. Of course this was overkill for a cat rescue, but it was good
Treed Cat Tales: lizardman22The forest was beautiful today. Hisspan Down admired the trees and plants as she wandered between them, picking out herbs and adding them to her basket. The sun created dazzling patterns as it filtered through the leaves, and the gentle rustling sound played by the wind added to the effect, complemented perfectly by the vague ambient noises of animals around her.Treed Cat Tales: lizardman22 by sonicinterface
I've got to find an excuse to bring Rebar out here. I'm sure she'd love it.
"Help... SOMEBODY HELP..."
Where had that come from? Hisspan glanced around.
"HELP! UP HERE! THE OAK TREE!"
The cobra looked up. The oak tree in front of her was several stories tall, and near the top she could make out a speck of something off-colored. Switching to infrared, she confirmed that there was a person's heat signature up there.
"HELLO UP THERE!" she called out.
After a moment, a response came back.
"H-HELLO DOWN THERE! CAN YOU G-GET ME D-DOWN? THE GROUND'S SO T-TERRIFYINGLY

Of Pegs and HolesLet's say you have two pegs, one round and one square. You also have two holes, one round and one square.Of Pegs and Holes by sonicinterface
Do you try to put the round peg in the square hole, and the square peg in the round hole?
No, you don't. The pegs aren't made for that, and if you try you'll just make yourself look like an idiot, or break something, or do both.
Do you try to put them both in the same hole? No, for the same reasons.
What you do is put the square peg in the square hole, and the round peg in the round hole.
Round pegs are made for round holes, and vice-versa. Ditto square pegs and square holes. If you try to mix and match, you'll accomplish nothing.
Now, suppose you're also given a triangular peg, but no matching hole. You don't put it in the square hole or the round hole. You go looking for a triangular hole to put it in.
Likewise, if you've got a star-shaped hole, you don't try to jam the square or round peg into it. You find a star-shaped peg, and us

The Good Luck Charm -Trade-Had it been anyone but Brian, it would have been an uncharacteristically bad day. But for him it was just the status quo.The Good Luck Charm -Trade- by sonicinterface
His boss had yelled at him again, twice, for mistakes that (mostly) hadn't even been his fault. A pair of troublemakers had flattened him and used him as a Frisbee, and at some point he'd dropped his wallet and had no idea where it was.
Now the silver panther was sitting and moping on a park bench, all alone and incredibly depressed. A raincloud above him kept him completely drenched.
Could this day get any WORSE?
As Brian hung his head in grief, he caught a glimpse at something hidden underneath the bench. Curious, he got down on his hands and knees and investigated.
It was a smooth metal box, labeled "PLOT DEVICE" on the side. On its top was a large red button labeled "PRESS FOR PLOT". Aside from that, it was completely featureless.
Without a second thought, Brian slammed his paw down on the button.

The Forgotten Concept CharactersConcept art.The Forgotten Concept Characters by AstaAura
Art that progresses designs for creating characters. However.. the first character design, isn't always the last final design. Nay. Us characters go through stages of different designs until our final form is complete. But.. what about our first form? Our second form? These are our forms that get left behind, never used in the final story and basically just for display purposes to show what we originally were.. that or we're hidden away, maybe even.. forgotten.
No-one knows what goes on behind closed doors. Perhaps we still do get drawn? But, how can we be certain? I mostly speak for characters in video game's, those you control the lives of. Their destiny in your own hands, their adventure. And what of us? We get no adventure, no. We sit back and watch as our final last design lives out what we should've lived out.. that should've of been us, not them. We were the first, why are we put on the shelf?
I'm not here to tell you my story however, nay. Not now, I'm here to tell
Breaking the Seal Kitsune Transformation StoryBreaking the Seal Kitsune Transformation Story by LightningTheFox7
The sun shone down through the many branches as Ryan made his way through the forest pathway. A twentysomething male, Ryan was always looking for new things to do, and new places to explore, and as he had moved to a new town recently, he wanted to see just what the town and the surrounding areas had in store.
"This place sure is nice." He smiled to himself as he walked through the forest, stopping every few moments to check out the wildlife. This forest seemed to have an abundance of foxes and owls, as well as the occasional squirrel. "I just wonder if the rumors I heard are true.. if there is an old shrine around here."
Not too long after he moved to the town, he heard some rumors from online friends that said that the old forest outside of town used to hold a shrine dedicated to kitsunes. He thought it sounded a little bit off given that kitsunes stemmed from Japanese mythology, and why there'd be a kitsune shrine in the middle of the forest in the USA was anyone's guess. Still, he t

The Cat Burglar -Trade-The stronghold was set in the middle of a mountain range. It was guarded around the clock, and many high-tech security measures guarded the treasure within. It almost seemed like a challenge for thieves to come and try their luck.
Of course, someone took the challenge.
A black figure coasted across the night sky, directly towards the stronghold. It was none other than the elastic black cat known as Blinkie. She'd molded her arms and hands into a hang glider for the trip, and was enjoying the sensation of the air rushing over, under, and around her.
As she passed over the stronghold, Blinkie retracted her arms back to their normal shape, dropping down onto the roof. The impact briefly squashed her down to a fraction of her normal height, but she popped back without difficulty.
Alright, here I am. I just have to sneak in, steal the diamond, and get out.
Blinkie scanned the roof for potential entrances. A circular hatch ca
Land of Giants -Toon- -Req.-Sophie beamed as she reexamined the leaflet the supervisor had given her. She was sure she'd fit right in where she was going.
Out of boredom, she'd wandered over to the Universal Teleport Station and decided to pop into another world for a spell. According to the leaflet, the world she was headed for followed similar laws of physics to her own, but every single one of its residents was a giant multiple stories tall. As a wingless dragon who herself was as big of a house at full size, she didn't hesitate to sign up for transit.
"Okay, miss, the portal's active. You can go ahead and step through any..."
Sophie had already dived into the purple light.
The multicolored world on the other side of the portal was an impressive contrast from the plain white teleport chamber. Sophie had landed in the middle of a humongous town, with buildings and mostly deserted sidewalks as far as she could see. She felt very small, which for her was an incredibl
Table for Three -Req.-"Look, Lizzie, it doesn't matter how you count them. Two chairs can't sit three people."
The wolf twins Lizzie and Abbe sat on opposite ends of a table out on their back porch. A week ago, Lizzie had insisted on picking out this particular table-and-chairs set because it matched her green fur; the problem was that today they were expecting a third party, and didn't have a chair to spare.
"C'mon, Abbe! There's gotta be a way to make it work. We didn't invite Tom over just to turn him away because he doesn't have a place to sit."
Lizzie got to her feet and studied the bright green chair she'd been sitting on. Confused, Abbe stood up and made her way around the table to stand beside her sister.
"What are you thinking, Lizzie?"
"Well... maybe if we take this chair apart, we can put the pieces back together in such a way that we make TWO chairs. You know, like in that mathematics textbook."
"Lizzie, I don't think that's the way it--"
"I'm gonna try it.
A Beast in the Valley -Trade-The temple was well hidden in the woods, nearly impossible to find except by accident. Wolfen Down had stumbled upon it quite by chance in an attempt to take a shortcut. He seemed to have a knack for discovering ancient temples.
Two rather aged wolf statues guarded the temple entrance. Inside, a third statue firmly clutched a crystal ball; there seemed to be no way to remove the ball from the statue's hands.
Weird. That ball HAS to be important. I can sense some sort of energy inside it.
Wolfen cautiously reached out and touched the ball with one finger. Immediately he pulled his hand away as he felt his canine instincts act up.
What the...? Okay, whatever this thing is, it's dangerous. Maybe I can...
Taking a deep breath, Wolfen placed his right hand-- the one he always wore the Infinity Gauntlet on-- palm-first against the ball's surface. Then he focused.
Energy crackled across his fingertips. For a moment, his hand was glued in place as energy flowed between
The Wicked Wild -Trade-"Oof!"
Kaitlin and Leon Down landed in a heap on an unfamiliar patch of ground. Only minutes ago (from their perspective), they'd been locked up together in a cage. Kaitlin had tried to shoot the lock off with an energy blast, only for Leon to slow down time, cut deliberately in front of her, and take the shot instead. The resulting overload had pinged both of them into another time and place altogether, as was rather typical for their adventures.
"Leon, you did that on purpose!"
"Well, yeah, I did... look at it this way: we're not stuck in a cage anymore, right?"
"The phrase 'out of the frying pan and into the fire' comes to mind..."
Kaitlin let out a frustrated sigh as she and her twin brother stood up and looked around. The warp had dumped the two of them in a clearing in a large jungle. Trees and bushes of many different sorts dotted the landscape.
"It's beautiful," the cobra remarked. "We should start bringing a camera with us when we travel."
Pool Party -Trade-The pool party was that afternoon, and Lizzie and Abbe still hadn't been able to secure a good pool toy for the occasion. Every toy was too expensive, or too ugly, or too... well, Abbe seemed to be a bit picky when it came to pool toys.
"Stop stalling, Abbe!" Lizzie moped as the two of them scanned the shelves of one last sporting goods store. "Let's just pick one and get it over with!"
"It's the middle of summer, Lizzie," the blue wolf reminded her twin sister. "If it were good someone would've bought it by now. You were the one who thought it could wait until the last minute."
"Well, if all else fails..."
"We've been over this already. Big, round balloons don't make good pool toys. Besides, the last time we tried it I kept tipping upside-down and getting water up my nose."
Abbe turned around to scour the shelves again... and caught sight of something behind all the inflatables she'd deemed too ugly. Rushing in, she dug through and uncovered i
Valley of Rotting Flesh -Trade-"Look... Leon... I know I divided the candy equally. You're just hiding some so you can get more than your fair share!"
Halloween night was upon the Valley of Venom, and the Down twins had just finished trick-or-treating. Kaitlin (dressed as a sorceress) had taken the liberty of sorting the candy, but her brother Leon (who'd gone as a vampire) was insistent that his share was smaller than it was supposed to be.
"Nuh-uh! You just want to keep more for yourself!"
"I counted them and gave you half! You're the cheater here!"
The argument quickly turned into a shouting match. Finally, the cobra blew her top, and shot off an energy blast at the wolf.
It wasn't until both their visions went purple that Kaitlin remembered why aiming her energy blasts at her brother was generally a bad idea.
When the light faded, the room had been replaced with the street just outside. Kaitlin groaned as she and Leon got to their feet (a few pieces of can
What Lurks Within -Trade-The gray wolf stood at the entrance to the maze. His appearance was one of a hero, with blue eyes and brown hair. Thirteen other Mobians of varying species, six male and seven female, had already entered the maze, but the wolf didn't have faith that they would return.
As the wolf stepped towards the entrance, a hand on his shoulder stopped him. He turned, and found himself making eye contact with a female red echidna. She was dressed in black robes and wore a patch over her left eye, and a few of her quills in her forehead were purple.
"Prince Theseus of Athens," the echidna greeted the wolf coldly.
"Lady Kia of Crete," the wolf responded in turn. "Caretaker of the maze and the Minotaur."
"Don't think I didn't recognize you, Prince Theseus, even if the guards didn't. I don't need my 'eye of scrying' to know your face when I see it."
To emphasize that last bit, Lady Kia flipped up her eyepatch, revealing a small crystal ball she used as a glass eye, b
Taffy Black -Trade-"Okay, everyone," the director called out, "we begin filming the next scene in one minute! Take your places and get into character!"
The filming of Taffy Black's pilot episode was well under way at the television studio (the same studio, incidentally, responsible for the game show Nothing Flat). Cameramen and sound technicians were stationed at every appropriate location, ready to catch everything, while the actors rehearsed their lines.
The actress playing the titular super-heroine, a black cat by the name of Blinkie, stood ready in an appropriate spot. She was dressed in a bright orange latex bodysuit that hugged her fur so tightly it might as well have been part of her body, although her head and tail remained bare; a circular emblem depicting the letters "TB" adorned her chest. She also wore a mask of the same color, framing her green eyes perfectly. Glancing at the director, she yawned and stretched-- and I do mean stretched, as h

Type of character: Cartoon verse (~Lolocator's version)
Name: Caroline Redd
Age: Late 20's
Allegiance: Red team
Family: Has an older brother named Nathan. No other known relatives.
Caroline's body colors are the classic skunk black and white. She is flat-chested, and has green eyes. There's nothing remarkable about the way she's built.
She wears a red bandanna tied around her left arm, an indication of her team allegiance. She also wears a hot pink tank top, featureless. Other than that, she goes unclothed.
Caroline is a little introverted. She doesn't try to avoid conversation with other people, but doesn't actively pursue it, either. She's a realist who can't take compliments easily, and a known snark. She's also fairly good with numbers and statistics, and
Char. Profile: Officer ZacharyType of character: Calamity City
Name: Officer Zachary (the "Officer" is not actually part of his name)
Age: Early 20's
Occupation: Police officer
Zachary is about half a head taller than average, but otherwise fairly normally proportioned. The majority of his body is white with black stripes, but his chest is plain white. He has a straight mane that sort of resembles a mohawk, starting at the top of his head and going down his back, ending about where his tail begins. Its stripes are identical to his own. His eyes are blue, and his mouth area is gray.
His hands and feet are black hooves. He actually has functional hands, but each hand has hard fingertips that can sort of lock together to form a hoof. He usually keeps his hands locked as hooves when not otherwise using them for anything. He's missing one black stripe on his left leg, the fourth one from t

Name: Tashako (tuh-SHAH-koh) Ana
Age: About 20
Species: Anaconda (Mobian)
Occupation: Writer and storyteller
Tashako is a slight bit taller than most Mobians. His primary body color is a dark yellow, sort of golden, about BFBF00 in RGB hexadecimal. His chest and mouth area, as well as the underside of his tail, are a slightly lighter yellow, around CCCC00. He has no eye color; his eyes are black. He has arms and legs, but lacks toes.
His entire body, except for his head, is covered in a pattern of black spots. The spots on his torso are each about an inch in diameter, whereas the ones on his arms, legs, and tail are smaller. His tail is about as long as he is tall, and has an oval-shaped cross section with the thinnest portion vertical; he lets it fall slack and tra
