He-Man stirred as the cell door opened. Some dozen or more of the green-skinned creatures entered, half-filling the place, and stood, watching – then all turned to bow low as Evil-Lyn made her entrance, staff in hand. She stood, erect and slender, and scanned her captive’s wary face.
“Come,” she said. “I have something to show you – as promised.”
“Er – I’m a bit tied-up at the moment – Some other time, perhaps?”
“But now is a good time, as it happens. So shall we?”
“Well, I suppose that I was only hanging
Poignant MemoriesAnother failure. Another chance lost at the coveted Power of the Elders. The disfigured form of the man once known as Keldor brooded stormily on his barren and dark throne for what seemed like an infinity of time. His physical wounds were of no consequence to him, but his wounded ego and pride were a different type of injury.Poignant Memories by Snowland316
Just what was it that kept him from grasping the ultimate, omnipotent power? He had often blamed his blithering idiots for warriors for his failures. Their incompetence knew no bounds and it seemed as if they were attempting to outdo themselves as to how to further disappoint their irascible lord.

However, he was actually a predator raised in the society of man and unfamiliar with his current surroundings.The Descent (Part One) by her0e
A low growl emanated, the only sign of his discomfiture.
The land was overgrown with tangled vegetation, its floor dark and uninviting due to the shelter provided by a multitude of towering trees. Sparse beams infiltrated the thick foliage, far too few to offer even a semblance of comfort. Thus, the tiger and his partner – a hulking, blond warrior – were both on guard, watchful of hidden traps and imminent attacks.
"Easy, Battle Cat," consoled He-Man.
"I'll be at ease when we're out of this underbrush," Battle Cat snarled.
The route they had chosen to travel was precarious at best, but there had been no alternative in the pursuit of Beast Man. Finding him was imperative, no matter the p
