Mareike Hansen

The story made it's own way in my head when I drew a mermaid. she's nearly finished, so I'll might update her as an illustration.

Caveat Emptor

Amy Schley

This is the first in a series of scifi/fantasy law related stories I'm working on. This story is inspired by a real case in 1991 in which a buyer sued the seller for not disclosing that the house had a national reputation for being haunted. Up until this point, the state of New York had a strict caveat emptor rule for property, and Justice Rubin wrote, “Applying the strict rule of caveat emptor to a contract involving a house possessed by poltergeists conjures up visions of a psychic or medium routinely accompanying the structural engineer and Terminix man on an inspection of every home subject to a contract of sale.” Justice Rubin decided to vacate the caveat emptor rule, but the dissent disagreed strongly. This story is set in a world where the dissent won. Ah, the things lawyers think about at Halloween.

It's cold

Marianne Cassidy

I went to CTYI this summer and did a course called Writing for Life. It helped me produce some of my best work to date. Credit to my teacher, Yvonne, for bringing us to a graveyard for inspirational purposes. Never would have written this story otherwise. Anyway, this piece has been affectionately nicknamed 'The Dead Baby Story' by my classmates. It's somewhat abstract. Leave me comments! This story got Mod's Choice, August 19th, 2004. Go raibh mile maith agat! Someone high-five me! NOW!

Musings

Penelope Weaver

Odysseus' thoughts during the fall of Troy

Child

Iris Joyner

A short story about a little half-elven girl named Janet and a blond haired, blue eyed elf named Blue. It's mainly based on how Janet was found by Blue and adopted, and it revolves around Blue a bit, but it's mostly supposed to be about Janet in her REALLY early years. Read and enjoy!

Very short thing about some physcopath that kills 'Satan's Child' The person imagins the baby coming to attack him/her so kills the baby. Kinda scary when you think about it.

Hush Little Baby

Sandra Stebenne

I just couldn't get that song out of my head...you know, 'Hush little baby, don't say a word. Mommy's gonna buy you a mockingbird...' So, I thought to myself, why not write a poem with those words in it to get them out of my system?

Salamor's Blade

Matthew Tucker

An experimental tale based on a school project, telling of a fantasy Solomon, and the strange proclaimation that would draw two compainions into a quest for their destinies...

The Bamboo People

12 Swords Prologue

Aubrey Walters

This is, oviously, the prolougue of a much longer story. It just really opens up the story, in which much more interesting things, like dragons, gaint spiders, vampires, and other awsome creatures make an appearance. But somethings would not make sense without this little intro making a show. Also my secound favorite character who rarley shows in the first book, is in it!

Distorted Melody Chapter 1 - Broken Flower

Sophie Hansen

This is a story about a vampire named Melody, told from the point of view of another vampire named Ambrose, as he tries to unravel her past. PLEASE BE AWARE, THIS STORY HAS SOME VERY DISTURBING ELEMENTS. I won't be graphic describing gory events, but some disturbing visuals are unavoidable. You've been warned.

Journey of True Love

A story about the loss of true love and how it was found again in a world of upheveal. Thanks to Benben for the inspiration!

Where's the baby?

Suzan Bongers

This story tells about a what happened after a woman curses herself, because people wrongly accused her of murdering several children. Lately I’ve noticed the large amount of people who die horrible in my stories, so I’m trying to write a story without anybody dying in it. So far I’m unsuccessful, but I think I’m getting better at it. This story is actually meant to put some meat on the skeleton of a RPG campaign I’m making and I must say I really love the Mary character since I made her up for the story “Someone preys upon you” (also a story in my gallery).

At Midnight

Gabby Marcolin

A short love story/intro about a girl who has to leave her home.
