This story introduces a new set of characters from a coastal village in a country to the far west of Lauralia. I call it my Louisa May Alcott story, because it's written very much in a 19th century style. Part two is in my Other Works section. (Don't ask me why this one qualifies as fantasy and part two doesn't...)
This was inspired partly by the movie "Gamer", partly by my frustration one night at msn's inefficiency to convey sarcasm. This is a future world where everything is according to logic and reason and numbers, a tainted shadow of 'real' life. I made fun of quite a lot, and had so much fun writing it ! ! !Enjoy :)
This is just a short story I wrote and thought I would upload it. I wrote it for English and my teacher really liked it so I thought I would put it on here and see what other people think.
Yikes! 'Tis a foul wind in the air, by god... What does this mean for our comrades yonder? We must read to find out--after all, without the breeze, how would drama ensue?

I finally decided to write something kind of cryptic - you could take this at face value, but there's a hidden understanding placed underneath this story. It's helpful if you know the story of King Minos (NOT Midas, the guy who turned things to gold. Minos is different). I enjoyed writing this, even though it only took a few minutes. I think it's a unique look into an old story. Roles reversed?The unfortunate...thing...left alone with only his own thoughts to keep him company. A single voice that hearkens to him; the only words to ever fill his ears reveal a bewildering truth. Do you know what he is?
In the third chapter, Raum gets to know the pirates he's gotten himself caught up with, learns of his duties, and starts getting some information on this mysterious treasure that they're seeking. He's not exactly the best team player, but in this situation, he doesn't really have a choice.
This was a story that came to me during exam time for college.okay I was dead tired, feeling really relaxed and soft and kinda dreamy in a coldish arts block on my laptop.thats the mood i was in for this and i hope you can see where its coming from.also i was listening to my immortal by evanescance and hold me by anne while writting so there you go (: enjoy
I wrote this as a class assignment. We'd just read Ray Bradbury's Martian Chronicles, and were supposed to rewrite one of the stories from our own viewpoint, as if we ourselves were in the story. I chose 'Usher II,' a story about a man who resents that society is trying to make fantasy go away, and wants to make a point by recreating some of the old stories in a new and much more solid way. It supposedly takes place on a Mars where it is easy to breathe. Bradbury might have written the story for a similar assignment after reading works by Poe.
After saving the mousy Helen from her perverted captors,Justice resolves to help the 'newly sent away,' as they call those sentenced to that prison which her streets have become, acclimate to her new prison surroundings by taking her to Justice's mentor, Suarez. He had taken her in as a child as he did so many others. Surely he would know what to do with this one. But upon reaching the home she finds the walls freshly sprayed with her orphan siblings' blood. A complete massacre. And the young ones herded away save her dimwitted 9 year old brother, Keito who with his ability to contort into small spaces had hidden himself away while the massacre took place. Leaving them asking, 'Why?' and swearing revenge.
A visit to the Cathedral, stronghold of the Order, and a meeting with its supernatural master, the mysterious First Counsellor Edgar Havelock.
The beginning. Everything must have a beginning. Especially if it is to end. Thus we start with Eyris Gildon and all the dreams, woes, and thoughts that drive him to leave home and join the National Army. Voluntarily? In pending conflict with the country of the East? Yes and yes. And just what's this about the promise of dragons on the shore? Perhaps his new aquaintances can provide some answers...Welcome to New Athens and beyond--it's about to get bumpy from here on out.

After tragedy strikes, everyone attempts to recover and move forward.
In this chapter, the crew arrives at their first island and find some clues about the treasure they're hunting. Raum, however, is only really focused on how he can use this island to sneak away.
