The Birchwood Cub is a bit of an experiment, and is an attempt to write a 'folk-tale' from another culture, in this case the Elfen, the non-human race to which Caeci Wolfsong belongs (see 'Of Mist and Marshlight'). The elfen were created over the course of several years in the 1970s, both as another race of characters in the Dungeons and Dragons games that I played a lot at the time, and later, in my writing, as a useful way of exploring humanity through the eyes of a non-human character. Over the years I created a huge 'back-history' of the elfen culture and mythology, of which this story is a fragment. It is the kind of story that story-tellers have been handing down through the generations in every time and culture. I was very influenced by the tone of old Russian folk-tales when I wrote this short piece, particularly by a small volume of Russian tales for children, told by Alexei Tolstoy and published in the U.K. in the 1940s by George Routledge & Sons.
Part five of ten for the prequel to the comic I'm currently working on (or, rather, have been working on for years and am actually making progress on now). In which Kri plays with Symihr's head a little, Shinkir gets quite a surprise, and the pair arrive at their destination. I do have another entire scene between Symihr and Iren, but that reveals some information that isn't supposed to be known until the second section/part of Shifting Times, which means it'll be a long time before I can reveal it. Curses. I might insert it after I make it to that part in the graphic novel, and we shall see. Notes on pronounciation: 'I' at the end of a word or consonant is a long 'EE' sound. 'EI' is a long 'I' sound (eye). 'IE' is a long 'EE' sound. Y is pronounced 'yih/yuh' unless it is at the end of a word or syllable. Singularly it is a long 'I' sound, and with 'a' before it it claims a long 'A' (aa or AA) sound. Any other questions on pronounciation just ask. Iren=ih-REN Kisday= kis-DAY Kona= KO-na Kri=krEE Tasa=TAH-sa Tasa'tei=TAH-sa-TII ('tei denotes plural of a creature or thing) Shabenay=SHAW-ben-aa Shamien=Shaw-mee-en Shinkir=SHIN-kir Symihr= Syihm-IHR Tynomai= TII-no-MII Any comments, suggestions, etc. are greatly appreciated.
Part four of ten for the prequel to the comic I'm currently working on (or, rather, have been working on for years and am actually making progress on now). Hello Shinkir. Notes on pronounciation: 'I' at the end of a word or consonant is a long 'EE' sound. 'EI' is a long 'I' sound (eye). 'IE' is a long 'EE' sound.

These are two poems of mine. The first is a little too melodramatic, but I like the second.
This is the first story that i am putting up here. Only the first bit. The rest is on the way.
This is another from the For Gettington project. (See Briar Ruotze.) I can't for the life of me remember what fairy tale I based this on or if I even did. I think I might have attempted one of those ancient European legends here, but I really can't remember. If I do, I'll share it. Anyway, it's the fantastic element (i.e. werewolf) in a modern setting a la Charles de Lint.
Oddly enough this is completely based on a dream I had, can you tell I have a vivid imagination? I didn't change or add anything that wasn't in my dream either...-shivers- one certain part still scares me...
This is just a short story that provides a prequel to others I will eventually write. Tried to do it in a more oral tradition style as opposed to dialog and such.
The prophecy of the Warrior, the savior of the people. A long time ago, a powerful mage proposed the coming of a hero who will save all from evil. As years passed, this prophesy became a legend, and then evolved into a simple song. It is one of the favorite ballads of the people.

In Changeling: the Dreaming and in several other stories, there is a tie when a person beckmes aware of a world outside that which they have always thought was the only one. Even in Matrix, this concept exists. In Changeling, that time is called a Chrysalis, when a changeling realises that they are one of the Fae. Sometimes they think they're going crazy at first, but soon realise that the fae soul that had lay dormant within then was now active. I wrote this back at Viterbo a few years ago, and I still like it. Then, I used it for an audition peice, (I didn't get the part) but I like it better as a story. This is about that time...a changeling's crysalis. (It was interesting...I saw the Cowboy Bebop movie, ans there were golden butterflies in that, too. I wonder...)
Ok, this is something I did when I was bored on a rainy day and its been an ongoing thing for a few months now. I hope u like it! ^_^
