I first wrote this poem ages ago, back when my knowledge of English was a bit, well, absent. Since then I periodically experienced fits of editing and this poem was not spared. So, this is the version 'so far.' Eventually my plan is to write a tiny-teeny book illustrating this poem. Eventually.
A metaphorical story about our enemy - writer's block! Alternative title: 'The Butterfly Effect'. Mermaid-less story (everyone rejoice!) and actually finished. (Cheers and kisses!) The story idea developed a few days ago when I actually got a new idea for my ongoing comatose other story, Chasing Shadows, and I made a post in my livejournal stating how inspiration is like a butterfly that can't be caught. Other inspirations for this were: footage from the upcoming animated movie 'Corpse Bride' (which I'm SO seeing) the song 'Road to Mandalay' by Robbie Williams - it may not have been a direct inspiration, but it helped me get into the mood I wanted to get across - and of course my own undying writer's block.
A short, SHORT anecdote; Mezamine questions the logic of a butterfly, and displays quite a bit of her broken personality in a small number of words.
This is short but sweet, really it should be the prologue, but as I already have an introduction it's Chapter 1 and part 2. The next part is significantly longer, which is why it's taking longer to get ready.
This is the poem about an ogre who sees a butterfly fluttering in the sky and falls in love with it and the life it has that he will never have. He becomes jelous and kills the butterfly but the pieces of the butterfly fly like the butterfly had once done and he flees.
With Onca facing death, Tyrax takes her to be healed by those who want her life.
Happy birthday, Bitsy, my love! *waves at her little Jibitsy* Because I decided Bitsy is special and deserves a second story. I was trying to capture the art of writing as a friend of mine once phrased it: 'And if there were no ink, I'd write my lines in blood.'
A tragic love story.... of an Elf and is Pixie lover actually...
Here is a poem that I considered making longer, but at the point I stopped it seemed complete and any further addition would have detracted from it. Written November 9, 1999.
Written under a word limit of 1300 words. Had too much in it but meant to be a intro to a much bigger story so yea. Some parts need to be clarified further.
Who ever said the power of good was supposed to win? :P Erm.. this was sort of inspired by the first movie clip of Fantasia 2000 (paper butterflies), except the black ones oppress the coloured ones. :}
A little poem thing a put with a drawing... I haven't scanned that yet though! Oh! and also a little strange thing i though of... Please comment! (I know I'm crazy!)
fate is watching out for us all... another poem from my 'no rhyming' stage. This is for Maricruz, i love ya girl, and your butterfly tat!
Having embraced Death, the Dark Butterfly now finds herself faced with her final battle. The one that will decide her fate for eternity.
Once upon a time, in a far away land, a young girl was visited by a magical being. Half man, half butterfly, this beautiful immortal boy enchanted her and slowly she fell in love with him. However, a buttefly is not a pet and everyone knows that a butterfly has to fly... (This is only a first draft. Constructive criticism more than welcome!)
Inspired by a guy I once had a crush on. I made him into a shadowcorn because he was all dark and mysterious. I named him storm and he was black, with blue eyes and silver mane, tail, horn and hooves with a silver moon on his forehead. Anyway, this was kind of how I felt about him. It's called butterfly because 'if you love something, let it go' and Mariah Carey said that...I think she has a song called Butterfly that talks about that
