But dire events are already in motion and the fate of this worlds peoples now lie in the hands of a bewildered stranger.

Pages 51 through 65 of a novella, and the conclusion to the tale. NEWS - The sequel to Rarest of the Wild, Rarest's Child, by Miguel Ettema, can no longer be found on Elfwood, but for those of you who followed the story, I have good news. Though Miguel has removed himself from Elfwood due to the demands of his schooling, the last section and conclusion of Rarest's Child, as I am the co-author, will be appearing here once we've finished writing and editing it. The bulk of the story, which was written by Miguel and won two Mod's Choice awards, I will have permission to post on my homepage once the entire tale is finished.
A spy plane pilot is captured by the enemy...will this be his last interrogation?
I thought some people might think it fun to see the same moment in time from two different viewpoints (and two different rooms). See the first scene of, An Apple... for Your Happiness.
A short story I wrote for english. It looks really REALLY short to me, when it's on the computer, but apparently I was lucky the english teacher read it, because it was over the 1 and 1/2 page limit. 'Cause I forgot to double-space. *blush* But I got an awsome score for it, and the english teacher even put it up on his wall. So that was really cool. I'm actually really quite pleased with this one.

Among the minotaur-like Tauri, females usually keep to the harems and homes, guiding the warrior bulls through their lives and letting them think they have the power. However, there is nothing in the rules that says a female CAN'T fight . . .
A piece written for a short story exchange. 'The Transformation' is a unique little piece wherein I was asked to write a story about someone becoming 'furry' and the rest of the world NOT NOTICING. I liked it so much I felt like sharing it with you guys! Feel free to reply!
This was apparently written by a slightly more reasonable and non-hyperbolic minstrel than the Legends for the other two. It's got a Call/Response format, and each stanza actually addresses a subject. However, some of the English and rhyme is a little stretched, because I was thinking in Catian concepts, and this one I drafted to translate. Now the translation is up, and you can check it here. .... .
