I was a sent a .pub file and I can't find a way to convert it that doesn't involve some border-line sketchy website. I have a Mac. tried converting it on Google Drive, tried opening it in different Microsoft Office applications and no dice. Any tips?
I know this is a little odd thing to sell here but here it is.
I make coin rings out of circulated coins retaining their individual characteristics both inside and out. It's a hobby I've with doing for a while and thought I would share with you all. Below is a link to my Shop and my facebook page if you're interested.
(ok then but first want to have my character Marcos arriving)
He was now in Hatsumi's apartment... and looked around. When Hatsumi said she had her own place he had assumed she lived with a family member or friend but at her age she had her own apartment. He wanted to ask where's her family as he saw photo's of her with a man which he assumed to be her father, the funny this was the man actually resembled his half brother.
Izuma looked at the photo which she had, and turns to her.... and didn't see much of a family resemblance but he didn't want to pry into her past, and he was nervous just being here with her anyway. "Thats a nice picture with your father, you look very happy there" he says to break the silence and he can barely make eye contact with her.
Izuma puts the photo down and just sits on the couch twiddling his thumbs thinking of what to say that won't embarrass him.
The plane had landed and off came a boy with a long jacket and dark hair with goggles on his forehead. The jacket was blue and under it he had a black t-shirt which showed his muscular frame and black jeans with boots on. He had a chain belt on showing off his radical personality... as he walked out the airport, he saw a woman waiting for him and she ran up and hugged the boy with his backpack flung over one shoulder Mother:"Marcos...oh its so good to see you... I just got back from work abroad as well son." Marcos:"Great to see you to mom.., hmmm i don't see King in the car but where's my little brother with split personality haven't seen Izuma and Kaito in a long time?" Mother:"He's at school and King has work... so i thought i'd come meet you here, so come one lets put your stuff in the car and head home." Marcos:"Well I kind of wanted to go... ummm see my dads daughter......" he siad
His mother dropped his suitcase that she had attempted to carry.... she actually teared up as she remembered Marcos's father and was young when she had him and there was a lot of issues between the couple. He was a good man loving and kind but she was a different person back then and wanted more, she had left him and took Marcos with her and moved away. Mother:"Wow... such a kind boy I have... (She began to cry) I am sorry for keeping you from him Marcos I was selfish I thought since he was working and our relationship was falling apart the courts would grant him sole custody, as i was going though some things im not proud of. That man never stopped loving you... and i heard he took in a child, which helped fill the void"
Marcos stopped his mother right there.... Marcos:"Oh stop crying mom its not like i never met him, he did come visit me at the boarding school you sent me to, and told me about my sister...Hatsumi.. now that I graduated I'm going to be the best big brother ever. Also i made peace with dad death mom, and i'll find a way to make him proud..but i'll go after I settle in at home lets go" he says hugging his mom and walking to the car.
Ryne sat down on the bench outside of school as the other kids got picked up. he was the son of a farmer, so his family lived miles away from the school, which meant he usually had to wait a while to be picked up.
"really? That's him? but...he's a kid." the girl who had said this was 18, had golden blond hair, and was sitting on top of a building near the school. most people would barley make out Ryne from that distance, but with her dragon vision, Alexandria could see perfectly fine.
"yes, that is the boy you will teach." the little girl who was sitting next to Alexandria said.
"look, I get that you are the dragon of Guidance, and I even get your obsession with little kids, since you are also the dragon of purity, but you told me that only I was powerful enough to train this legendary dragon, and now you are telling me it's some small fry who can barely sing his A,B,Cs? Sorry, but I don't have time for babysitting." Alexandria said to the little girl. who had an angry face on.
"I AM NOT OBSESSED WITH CHILDREN!" she screamed "I am in this form because as a dragon aspect I take the form of my Aspect, which is Purity, and children are the purist beings alive." the little girl said, matter-of-factly "besides, you owe me a favor, If you have forgotten, it was I who saved you from execution."
"Alright, I will consider the boy, but if he does not past my trial I am done." ALexandria said, turning her attention back to the boy on the bench.

Sayuri steps out of the bathroom, set and ready for bed. She makes her way to her room, fuzzy bunny slippers gliding across the carpet. She opens her door and freezes. Eyes wide, Sayuri staggers back and screams, slamming her door shut. Her brother Yuuta comes racing towards her, and is quick to ask what is wrong.
Sayuri can’t speak as she just gestures a trembling finger towards the door.
Slowly, Yuuta opens the door, and then produces a heavy sigh. He then looks at Sayuri and shakes his head. “That’s Todoroki. Go and make a better first impression.” With that, Yuuta walks back to his own room.
Sayuri heavily blinks, her mouth in the form of an ‘o’. She opens her door once more, and cautiously makes her way inside. Closing her door behind her, Sayuri looks at the creature.
“So you’re the famous Todoroki,” Sayuri tilts her head, “I imagined you a bit. . . bigger. And more scary looking?”
The feline spirit laughs, “If I were to go into my true form, this house would be no longer, foolish human.”
Her eyebrow twitches. She then jumps as he is suddenly in front of her, “So this is who I must deal with now?” His tail flicks, the bells jingle. “Ha. They seem to be getting worse as the generations go on.”
“Rude!” Sayuri gasps. She knits her brows together and folds her arms over her chest. “Well for your information I never asked to get stuck with you, either!”
Todoraki produces a powerful laugh. He then begins to fade away, an orange aura surrounding him as well as the twin blades on the floor. Then, Todoraki is gone, and the blades stop glowing. Sayuri just stands silently for a minute and then tosses herself onto the bed. She shoves her face into a pillow, and screams into it.
With that match over Kori went to the back....
Echo walked up to him
Echo-"Hey Kid good match that means your my next opponent hope you heal up and we have a good fight."
Kori smiled and responded "Of course i saw your fight to and your pretty strong i can't wait till our match."
Echo grinned..."Great seems like you have the same hunger for battle as I do...you remind me of me anyway the next match is coming up
and i get a bad feeling from that Chris Sponder person."
Kori got a serious face "Yea i can recognize the strength in others but i this guy give me the creeps."
"NOW FOLKS THE NEXT MATCH IS CHRIS SPONDER WHO BEAT HIS PRELIMS IN A FLASH VS THE VERY AGILE ALPHA NORMAN CAN THE BLUE HAIRED FLASH PUT THIS AGILE FIGHTER DOWN...LETS SEE FIGHTERS BEGIN
The fighters are in the middle of the ring....
[Sponder]"You should give up now maybe you might live." he says
Alpha smirks and in a stunning display of power the match was over and everyone was speechless
Even Echo is stunned as well as Kori
[center]"What was that power... did he cause that damage with pure energy... is that even possible." kori says
Echo looks on..."I only know one person.. who had a similar ability... my father Cyrus... maybe this Chris Sponder knows him...but
its much different from Master Cyrus... i can't figure it out."
Kori- "Well the winner of our fight might have to face him... do you know how to beat that technique?"
Echo - [i]"No... as you see the destructive power it has... Alpha may have dodged it but this Chris Sponder has immense power to beat him with that
The fighters left the ring but Alpha had to be helped out of the ring by paramedics...
From Thread: Dinotopia? Mon Jun 16, 2014 12:10:35 AM
has anyone heard of Dinotopia? it was a fantastic book series I used to read as a child, it had a straight to tv film that was actually vary well made, as it was one of scifis first double feature-type stories. I highly recomend it. also I was wondering if anyone wanted to do a roleplay based around it? the basic idea is that Dinotopia is this hidden island where dinosaurs still exist and some of them are even intelligent enough to talk and interact with humans, as well as write in the dinotopian language. the idea for the roleplay would be a shipwreck that lands all our characters onto the island and we must cope with finding this strange new world.
