Small Blessings

Anna Mortensen

Another short piece that ties into The Phoenix Cycle. This centers around several minor characters. Who, for all intensive purposes, will likely transform into minor-major characters. I may expand this eventually, but for now it shall remain as it is: short and weakly plotted... and slightly revised.

Do You See What I See?

Pamela Lehmann

Alitzia has been 'gifted' with foresight. But not just any foresight; she can only see pain, suffering, death. But she tries to help people. But by the time they believe her, they are already dead. And then the witchhunter comes. Witchcraft is against the law. And Alitzia sees visions. She must be a witch. And witches are burned. Warning: This story is not recomended for younger readers.


Laura Lange

Fairies ... yeas I know this is an obvious style, but this is my first real story which I started last year and then picked up again now. It is about a fairy growing up and her life.

Arthallin Majeste - Part 5

Jason Romein

The tale continues as the adventurers meet up with the bandits. I wrote this in one sitting, so it should be fairly coherent. I noticed that in the last one, I referred to Arthallin's stone as a garnet, and it's really a ruby. Just a note.


Brian Bergstrom

A tribute to fire....hehehe...

Unholy Smoke

Robin Hersom

Very dark, this one. If you want to read into it, it contains mystical things like allegories, and it has been accused of having a 'Lord of the Flies' feel to it, but you will have to see for yourself. UPDATE: I've responded to your helpful comments, and tweaked it where it needed tweaking. Thanks!


Mark Kramarzewski

This is inspired by, well, my main inspiration, personally, I like it, and I hope you do to, the meaning is probably lost in my writing, but we'll see. Once again I dislike the title, but I don't like to put 'untitled' Any suggestions?


Segun Williams

This story is about fire (at least it may be eventually). It's a new style for me. No names are mentioned at all. It's a bit odd, but I hope it's not too boring...

Raider 03: Arrest

Richard Lorenz

Our hero is found, bound, and startled. Then he gets hit in the head.

Flame I Surely Am

Peter a.k.a Dauphin

for Remi and her bountiful nightmares Updated 26/05/04


Erin Washburn

Another poem of mine, something pulled from the tangles of my mind and something I tried to make sense of.

The Fallen Moon Part 7

Jake Diebolt

Just outside Sorrowdale, a short patrol of Rebellion soldiers have found something strange and disturbing, and send for Captain Gregg and the Seer. The discovery will be the harbinger of yet another force in the war for the North...

Prologue: Escape from the Black Serpent

Laura Engler

One of my biggest faults is that I'm easily dejected. About two years ago (perhaps even more), I had an entirely different prologue for the first book in my big fantasy epic, Serpent in a Cage. I showed it to a friend of mine who's opinion, at the time, meant quite a lot. He didn't like it, and ever since then, I haven't been able to touch the thing. Until now. His biggest complaint was that there wasn't enough action in it, so I tried to approach the story with a more active beginning, although such things have always been hard for me. It was quite a challenge, a long time running, but I've finally completely something I'm satisfied with. Naturally, though, my satisfaction means little, as I'm sometimes too hard on myself, others not hard enough. This is where you come in. I'm desperate for guidance and construction critism on this one. Is it a good prologue? Does it capture your attention, do you find it interesting? Does it spark questions and make you want to read more? Or should I take this back to the figurative drawing board once more? Please. I desperately implore your imput.

War of the Lake

Jenny Olivera

The challenge was to write a battle scene. I went about it in a slightly different way than I think was intended, but hey, what else is new ;). This is long-ago history for my novel.

The Troubles of a Scribe

Chris Poole

I guess these are just poems I wrote yesterday when I had writers block.

People of the Ash: Prologue

Katie Hallahan

The Prologue to 'People of the Ash.' This portion is an exerpt from a text written about them, introducing the Ashion race to the reader.


Jenny Bell

About a little girl sent by the gods to stop evil-but is in herself pure evil and steals peoples spirits. I know this may not seem like fantasy I had to split the story up so this is just he introduction. it really is fantasy. I promise.

TECHNOLOGY #1: Chapter 3

Siegfried Baumann

More action herre... After the battle for the Pegasus, our hero is left tumbling to Earth in a damaged fighter. Can he somehow survive and escape the enemy fighter right on his tail?

Summer Spirit Cycle

Brittany Sparks

This is more like it! Subtly a pyro maniac and a bit of an ego freak, Summer is one of the best seasons.

Unting Lepporian chapter 2: Plans in Blossa

Tom Shine

Here you meet Destria, one of my favourite characters. Jaygen, another prominent character, also features, and you get a glimpse of their relationship. This is sort of across the tracks, as Blossam is the mortal enemy of Keckerel. The tale ficks in between Destria and Jaygen's adventures and Keera and Orkit's adventures, but they all tie in eventually. But enough from me! Read on...
