Of Birds and Dragons

Emily Day

This tiny poem was written at a school Coffeehouse put on by the Creative Writing Enrichment. Fun!

The Elf and the Magic Garden

Diane Reed

A short story in verse about a magical garden and an elf!

The Mole Who Could Fly

Elizabeth Hartwick

This story I wrote for Chemistry of all classes! The story is about a talking mole who experiences something extraordinary

The Bird

Maria Elmindreda L

This story was inspired by one song I heard, called 'The Cry of the Bird'. A story of love, betrayal and inability to forgive...

The Howling of the Wolf

Laura Lange

A young woman is struggling to accept the truth... she is a werewolf. This story is dedicated to my friend Taryn and her love for the weird and wacky


Latisha'Idiot' Butler

I'm not quite sure if I'm going to keep the ending of this one like this or not... Suggestions welcome.

Holding a Bird

Kristin Molle

It's a bit narration, and a bit poetry. Inspired by two things: a picture of a king's court out hunting with falcons by a castle, and rescuing a little nuthatch which had been stunned by a stray paintball and was in the middle of the field. It had been too out of it to resist being picked up, but as it came-to it started flipping it's wings around and trying to escape before we'd reached safety.

What's Your Lucky Number? Six? You Lose! (5)

Cly Novak

This is the 5 chapter. I think Maxx talks the most in this one than in any other chapter so far. And please remember... this is a little cat doing all this damage. Never thought a cat could do anything more than scratch when faced with a bath...

Adale's Night

Angela Rawlinson

If you've seen the picture, this'll make some more sense, if not, it still makes sense.

The Jabberfloky

Mark Sherry

Woodchat can be dangerous for your mental health. It all started so innocently. Gayle Bird moved her jelly launcher into a defensive position to fend of those who were jealous of all her art programs and her 9x12' Intuos Wacom tablet. Other people started arming themselves as well. Then Phil drew his Vorpal Peashooter, and I just had to write this poem. For the uninitiated, Flok is a all purpose word invented by Marie Bird on IRC and spread through Woodchat (elfwood's official mailing list) by myself and others. You have been warned.


Dasha Mouraveyko

This is another narrative poem... HeeHee

First Flight

Dasha Mouraveyko

A free poem. I wrote it after I finished reading 'The Giver'.

Kroak's Tale

Adam Prentis

This was an experimental story which didn't turn out that bad. If you like it, then have a shot at Roak's Tale, which is 'even' better. Enjoy!

The Manipulator, Ch. 1: The Apprentice

Max Wolf

Wolf Fate: The hope of the Other World, who alone has the power to stop his own father and putting right a world that went completely wrong. He never expected he was speciel, but then the Manipulator Jack Blade shows up at cozy home and tells him differently. He says he can manipulate anything, and that he was to be trained to destroy evil in the Other World. Wolf has a big decision to make: Does he go and be trained as a Manipulator, or does he stay with his brother and grandmother?

The Manipulator, Ch. 2: Connected

Max Wolf

"Only blood can kill blood." Wolf and Blade travel to the Other World to meet with Griff Harold, who confirms Wolf as the most powerful Manipulator he has ever seen. Blade names Wolf "Apprentice Manipulator", and a connection is formed between Wolf and his gryphon.

You Can't Fly (Formly known as Kristen) part 01

Samantha Fortier

Yet again, I couldn't resist using my Kristen story for a writing class, but I think this is strong and starts out a little different than the original draft. I like how it turned out so much that, I am putting it up. There is for the first time (shock) some interaction between Amolas and his mother, and I feel it is an interesting scene though it might need some strengthening and such. Any way sit back and enjoy. Let me know what you guys think.

The Soul

Dianna Arnold

This was done a number of years ago, and is a tribute to my dog Kira, who died of a grand mal siezure.  She was an Alaskan Malamute and loved children.  If you don't know what an Alaskan Malamute is, look 'em up.  They're absolutly great dogs, if sometimes stubborn, and are great with kids and generally love people more than any lab could hope to.  Not that I have anything against labs, but malamutes have a "dog-anality" all their own.  This story is also a tribute to all the other pets I've had and loved through the years.
