teamrandom21 added a topic in Writer's BlockTeam random 21's poemsI know this is out of the blue, but I want to start sharing some of my other works with you guys on here, original one's of course...
It took me a while, but I finally was able to get out of my comfort zone and make my own stories without already made characters in video game or TV shows.
Due to their content, I can't exactly post them here, but I can post the links.

teamrandom21 added a topic in Writer's BlockBabylons: Book 1Authors note: Allen is not my character, she is a character made by Gloria (Rondineviola). I have gotten her permission to use her character in this story.
The south Pacific holds something that not many people know about. Something that’s not on any map made at the time and something that very few know about. It’s not a sea creature, or a giant underwater portal, but an island. Kokko island finds itself being nothing more than a speak in the large South Pacific Ocean.
The island had a main land, and then some off shore places. The main land held things like mountains and caves, even a river while the off shore area held little to nothing exciting. As stated before, not many people knew about this island, and the few that did keep it a secret. The island to them was like the ultimate resort, nobody knew about it, and for the most part it was free to go there.
Of the few people who knew about this island was a side kick of a blue hedgehog, Tails the fox. As fun as it was to tag along with Sonic, Tails thought it would be best to take a break. Sonic did seem somewhat annoyed that the four year old tagged along with him, and kept following him everywhere he went. With his plan Tails flew back to the island he was very fond of…
Up on Polly Mountain, there was a group of birds that lived there. Polly mountain was a popular place for these birds, as they felt it was a nice area where they could land and relax before taking off to wherever else they wanted to go, or simply stay. After all, the island was in the perfect spot, it was always warm and barely any storm clouds came near the area.
While most came in groups, one came alone…this one being a bird named Allen. Dispute the name, Allen was a female, at the same age of Tails Allen really didn’t know much about her past, let alone how she got on the island.
All that was known about Allen to the other birds was that she didn’t exactly have a clean slate. Things would go missing in the birds pockets, food would be there one second, and then gone the next. Any kid that messed with her would also get a rude awakening as well. Her days may have been full of goofing off and stealing things, but little did she know she was going to be a part of an adventure in the future…
Tails didn’t really travel far on Kokko Island. Besides the bullies and people who would call him a freak over his two tails, he had everything he needed in the house he made for himself. It wasn’t big and it wasn’t much, but it would be wear Tails would build inventions and work on things. It was a hobby of his.
Tails pulled up a chair and began working on his robot dog he nicknamed t-pup.
“Who needs friends when I can make one?” he said to himself.
Meanwhile up Polly mountain, Allen’s days of stealing things were about to finally catch up to her. While lying against a tree, she heard footsteps approaching her. In front of her stood 3 very unhappy birds. Allen only opened one eye to look at them, before closing them again.
“How may I help you boys?” she said in a snarky tone.
“Yeah, we’d like our stuff back…” one of the birds, an eagle, said while stepping closer to Allen. Allen responded back with a short “ha”.
“What makes you goons think that I would give you guys you’re stuff back…let alone the fact that I have it?”
The eagle picked up Allen by the collar and pulled her close to his face.
“Whoa, whoa, whoa now buddy, you wouldn’t hit a girl would you?”
“Funny, seeing as you have a boy’s name…” said one of the other birds, a blue hawk.
“Now, now, we can settle things peacefully…” Allen said, before poking the eagle in the eye and running off.
“Yo ed! You ok?” the pigeon bird said.
“What the hell do you think? GET HER!”
Allen ran as fast as her little legs could carry her as she heard the footsteps of the birds behind her. It didn’t help that these boys were older than her. Allen found herself rolling down the hill before landing near a house. Not wasting any time, Allen quickly got into the house.
Dispute Tails being in the house at the moment, he was asleep, curled up on a ball on the couch, exhausted from all the work he did working on inventions. It did drain a lot out of him.
“Where’d she go?” Ed asked.
“I don’t know, you think she might have gone into that house?” the pigeon responded.
“Probably…I don’t even know who the hell would live down here…”
“What if it’s some creepy old dude?”
“Shut it Pete.”
The two looked around the house, before hearing something off in the distance.
“That must be her…”
The trio left, going off into the direction that the sound came from, completely ignoring and not even looking further into the open window that Allen got into. Allen whipped the sweat from her forehead and decided to take a look around the house.
“I mind as well call this place home…no way are those 3 goanna let me back up to Polly Mountain in piece…”
While exploring the house however, Allen found out that she wasn’t the only one here. Allen almost jumped and let out a scream as she saw Tails on the couch, curled up sleeping. Looking longer caused her panic to turn into awe as she approached the sleeping fox.
She couldn’t help but find it cute how Tails was curled up in a ball sleeping. He looked so peaceful. Allen carefully started petting the fox, almost as if he was a dog or cat. Tails seemed to not mind at all, smiling in his sleep as he was getting pet.
“This fox kid is cute…really cute…” she thought to herself. After petting Tails for a while, Allen looked outside of the house. The area around it wasn’t that bad, a bit better than the rocky hills of Polly Mountain.
“Sorry Polly Mountain, but I think I’ll be sticking to this place from now on…” Allen said to herself.
Tails awoke from his slumber before the sun rose. He looked around to find that it was a sort of dark blue outside.
“Mmmmh, man…working really drains me…” he said to himself. He got up and stretched before going outside to catch some fresh air, and splash some water on his face. On his way out, he spotted Allen, who was up against a tree asleep.
Tails went over to tap Allen on the shoulder.
Allen opened her eyes and almost jumped as she saw who stood before her.
“OH…oh…uh…hi…” she said awkwardly.
“Ummm…hey, what’s your name?” Tails asked.
“Allen? Isn’t that a boy’s name?”
“So? You have a problem with that!” Allen said, jumping to her feet and getting in Tails face.
“Oh…no, no, I like it.” Tails said. Allen blushed a bit at the statement.
“Um…well, thanks…” she said.
“Uh…by the way, do you mind if I stay here? I’m sort of in some hot water at my home.”
“Where is your home?”
“Just up the mountain. I live around Polly Mountain. How I got there I don’t know, I just know that I’ve been there since and have…well, sort of gotten myself into some trouble.”
“What kind of trouble?” Tails said, cocking his head to the side a bit.
“Nothing really bad…just…stole some stuff…”
Tails gave a bit of a disapproving look at Allen. Before things could get awkward, Allen quickly changed the topic.
“Have you been here your whole life?”
“Well yeah, sort of…this is sort of a vacation spot for me. I arrived here after helping my pal Sonic defeat this evil guy named Doctor Robotnik.”
“Lucky fox, he’s gone on an awesome adventure beating up some guy with his friend and I was stuck here doing nothing but steal from the other idiots on this island.” Allen thought to herself.
“Anyway…I was goanna go near the stream and wash my face off, you want to come with me?”
And with that, the two new friends made their way to the lake, both feeling a bit more positive after meeting one another.
On board a giant ship, sat the Grand battle Kukku. The bird sat at his chair thinking to himself. He was deep in thought, with himself.
“What seems to be the problem?” one of the battle Kukku birds asked.
“The problem is trying to find the chaos emeralds!” the grand said, slamming his fist down. “These things are something I desire greatly! Imagine how much more powerful we would be if we were able to get all of them!”
“I think I know where there’s at least one of them…”
The grand turned around to face Dr. Fukurokov. Grand wasn’t exactly pleased to see the mad scientist. He was just that, mad, and the Grand didn’t have time for the scientist crazy idea’s.
“What now…” Grand battle kukku said in an annoyed voice.
“I believe I found one of the 7 chaos emeralds. It’s on an island, a small little island known as Cocoa Island. I’ve done my research of locations of the emerald, and this place is where it should be. I’m almost certain!”
“Alright…we’ll go there…but I’m warning you right now if we don’t find anything…you’re done for.” The grand said, pulling the doctor closer as he did.
The grand battle kukku ordered the ship to fly towards the island.
Dispute her attitude at times, Tails and Allen seemed to get along really well. Tails and her would explore the other parts of the island, while trying to avoid the bullies. Allen would head up to Polly Mountain only with Tails as his sort of protective person, although most of the time it doesn’t work out for her.
Things were going smoothly until Tails saw a giant ship coming towards the island. This caught him and Allen off guard.
“What the heck?” Allen said.
“That’s one big ship…”
The two watched as the ship landed near the island, just off the coast of it.
“I got a bad feeling about that ship…” Tails said.
Tails feeling was right. As soon as the ship landed, the Kukku army got out and started charging towards the island.
“I want that island searched inside and out! I don’t care what you have to do or what you have to destroy! Find me the chaos emerald that’s allegedly on this island!”
Grand battle Kukku gave a cold glance back at the scientist as he said allegedly. Dr. Fukurokov gave a nervous smile as he saw the Grand Battle Kukku look at him.
The Kukku army birds swam towards the island, and once on it, started throwing bombs everywhere.
“What the heck was that?” Allen said, looking around panicking.
“I don’t know, sounded like an explosion!”
The army continued to throw bombs, looking all around at the holes they made to see if there were any chaos emeralds underneath.
“You guys find anything?” one of the birds said.
Tails started flying up to the sky before Allen stopped him.
“Tails what are you doing?”
“I’m going to check out whatever that noise is!”
“What? Are you crazy?”
“I’m sorry Allen, but I need to protect this island. It’s like a second home to me.”
With that, Tails flew off, leaving Allen looking up at him worried.
“That fool!” she said to herself, before chasing after him.
Tails saw from above the birds that were throwing bombs all around the island, followed up by them searching the ground.
“What the heck are they doing?” Tails said to himself. He continued to follow the birds around until they reached near the lake.
“You think one of the chaos emeralds would be in the lake?” one of the birds asked.
“Well, there’s only one way to find out…”
“Oh no…” Tails thought to himself.
Before one of the birds could drop the bomb, Tails quickly swooped down and grabbed it, before dropping it down on the army birds, sending them flying.
“What the hell!” said one of the battle kukku birds.
“Who the heck do you think you are throwing that bomb at us!”
“My name is Miles Tails Prowler, and I’m not going to let you destroy my island…”
“We’ll just see about that!”
One of the birds grabbed a bomb and tried throwing it at Tails, only for Tails to catch it and throw it back at him, causing him to jump out of the way, almost being hit by the bomb. Allen watched on threw some bushes, impressed that the two tailed fox (about her age), was standing up to the army of birds.
“Wow…” was all she could say.
Tails flew away causing the birds to chase after him.
“Get back here you little brat! Nobody bombs us and gets away with it!”
One of the army birds slowly got up in a cave, holding his head.
“Erm…damn that stupid fox. The Grand Kukku is going to kill us if we continue to get are butts kicked by that little twat!”
The bird looked around, trying to figure out where he was when he saw something shinning nearby. Grabbing his attention, the bird quickly ran towards it.
“Please be what I think you are…please be what I think you are…” the bird said running over to it quickly.
He quickly grabbed it and indeed, it was what he thought it was: a chaos emerald.
“Yes…Yes!” he shouted, echoing in the cave.
The bird quickly stumbled out of the cave and looked around.
“Finally…a chance for me to gain some recognition and fame from the other bird brains!”
Just as he was about to take off, Speedy flew down and grabbed the emerald.
“Hey!” the bird shouted up. “I found it first!”
Speedy just stuck his tongue out and flew off back to the ship.
Allen ran around the island looking for Tails. She looked up in the sky and around her.
“Tails! Tails where are you!” She shouted, looking around quiet franticly. She finally saw him up on a tree.
“Come on you freak! Come down and face us!”
“Make me!” Tails said, crossing his arms, sitting on top of the tree.
Just as one of the birds was going to throw a bomb up, the sound of a plan from up above could be heard. Tails looked up and saw the giant Battle Kukku ship.
“It’s the ship, looks like we gotta get back!” said one of the birds. Before flying up the bird threw the bomb at Tails, just in time as it caused him to fall down from the tree.
Allen ran towards where Tails was, but before she could get there, the gust of wind knocked her back into the ocean.
“Help!” she shouted as she tried to stay above the water. Every time she popped up she would see the ship take off and the island get further and further away. The tide was too strong…
“Leave it to my son to find the chaos emerald while all you idiots goof around!” the battle kukku shouted at his army.
“But-“ spoke up the army bird who originally found it.
“NO BUTS! As disappointed in you guys as I am, I am glad to have this emerald…” he said, putting it in his hand and looking at it with a wide smile.
“I can feel the power from the emerald in my hand…”

teamrandom21 added a topic in Writer's BlockFurball AdventuresEpisode 1:
So, here we are...a random house in the suburbs! Alright, I bet you’re wondering what we're doing here? Well, you may not know it, but there’s a certain famous blue haired person here…
No...not you 2d. A certain blue haired animal.
“C is for-”
No! Oh for pete sakes. The answer is furball. Who you ask? Well, you know...the blue haired cat in the show that always had bad luck for some reason. Yes, he’s here...he’s...where the heck is he?
Excuse me...as I, the narrator of this story describe to what’s going on as I search for our blue haired main character. I will give his new owner credit though, he does have quite a nice home. Purple curtains, a big tv, some couches. Though no cat…
Strange...I could have sworn this was the right address. So now I’m taking out my address book here to see if I am at the right place.
“Hey buddy…” said a red bird with a bowtie on, in a bird cage of course.
“You looking for Furball?”
Why yes I am, I said to...uh…
Uh...right, Gizmo the bird told me.
“He right over by the fireplace sleeping in his bed.”
Thanks. And now as I walk over I see indeed that is where our main character is. There he was, snuggled up in his bed. If my notes are correct this was the little guy’s new home, after living years and years on the streets of Acme acres.
His days on the streets weren’t anything special, just walking around looking for food, avoiding dogs, and Elmaria (who’s getting into this story over my dead body…), and well, doing what even cartoon cats know what to do best...sleep!
Just then his owner came in, carrying a bunch of fishing equipment. His owner wore a fishing hat and khaki shorts, getting ready to head out to the ocean to catch some fish.
“Furball, I’m going out fishing, I should be back by the end of the night. I expect Gizmo here to be safe and sound when I come back!” the owner said sternly, waking up Furball in the process, still sleepy from his nap.
“Furball nodded his head.
“Good...also...WHO THE HECK ARE YOU!” his owner said to me.
Well sir, you see I am the narr-
And so the owner picked me up by the collar and tossed me out-
The narrator dusting himself off a bit
Fine, be that way, I’ll just narrate form out here. And so jerky mcjerk pants got in his car with his boat right behind it and drove off. Not gonna lie, I hope he gets a ticket…
Back at the house, Furball had fallen back to sleep peacefully. While he was, the bird took a long look at the cat.
“Should I...or should I go to sleep?”
The bird looked once more to see that Furball was asleep, rolling over on his side , facing the other way from him.
“Alright, here goes nothing…”
So Gizmo closed his eyes and fell asleep. Little did he know as soon as he did, Furball woke up and looked over his shoulder. Once he saw the bird was asleep, he slowly walked over to the cage.
The bird was still asleep, even with Furball jumping on the cage and using his claw to open it up. Just as he opened his mouth, the bird opened it’s eyes.
“Oh...we’re gonna do this now are we?”
The bird grabbed a stick of dynamite from his pocket and put it down furballs throat. The cat fell down the cage, licking it’s lips and rubbing his stomach.
“Hey buddy…” Gizmo said from up in the cage.
“That wasn’t me you ate…”
Furball cocked his head in confusion before he exploded right there and then, leaving a nasty mark on the carpet.
“Eh...any owner who trust their cat at home alone with a bird deserves it.” Gizmo said, shrugging the incident off.
Gizmo was once again asleep. Furball looked up at the bird cage, with the bird once again asleep. He quickly climbed up once more and opened the door to reach his hand in. Once in, he felt around for the bird, only to get a pain in his hand.
Letting out a cry of pain the cat once again fell down from the cage. Looking at his hand he found a mouse trap on it.
“Who said mouse traps were just good for mouses.” Gizmo laughed. Furball got the mouse trap off of his hand and quickly leaped up into the air. Gizmo moved right out of the way however, leaving Furball going right into the cage.
Once in Gizmo closed the door, trapping him inside.
“Not so fun being trapped in a cage now is it?”
The bird flew away towards a window, leaving a crammed furball trapped inside his cage.
“Now this is the life…” the bird said flying around the room.
“All this space and you stupid humans wonder why we complain about being trapped in the tiny cages you put us in!” he said, soaring through the living room and kitchen. As he landed on the kitchen window, he saw a big grey dog walking outside.
“Oh look, a big grey dog walking outside…sure would suck if someone decided to lie to the dog about something…”
With an evil grin, the bird called over the grey dog.
“Hey pal.” Gizmo said, getting the dog’s attention.
“There’s a blue cat in here who’s talking badly about dogs.”
“Oh he is, is he?” the dog said, climbing thru the window. Furball was about to go after the bird before he ran right into the dog, going coming face to face with him.
“So you like talking badly about dogs do you?”
Furball shook his head no, but the dog wasn’t having it. The dog started barking loudly and chasing after Furball, who ran away from him as fast as he could. As the dog chased Furball around, things in the living room got knocked down and broken.
Gizmo sat back and watched, chowing down on bird seeds as he watched Furball and the dog knock everything down.
“This is so better than anything on Cartoon Network right now.” Gizmo said.
As the two continued to run around the room, the owner of the house pulled up. He got out of his car looking a bit battered and bruised.
“Stupid fish and lake creatures…I just wanted to fish!” The owner said grumpily. “Oh well, at least I can come home to a house that’s all in-“
As the owner opened the door, he saw the mess that lay in front of him. Furniture turned upside down, fine plates being broken, and carpet torn up.
“WHO’S RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS!!!” The owner shouted at the top of his lungs, catching attention of Furball and the dog. Both the dog and Gizmo pointed at Furball. Furball smiled nervously, but before he knew it, he was booted out of the house.
“AND STAY OUT!” the owner said.
The owner looked to see that there was a group of angry animal right protesters on his lawn.
“Did you just kick that cat?”
“What? Who me? I would never-“ the owner took off running down the street.
“YOU’LL NEVER TELL MY BOSSES ABOUT THIS TO GET ME FIRED ALIVE!” he said before getting hit by a bus.
“I’m ok!” he said, as the bus drove off into the distance. And so, now with no home, Furball continued to walk back to his old stomping ground, his card board box…
