The Man Who Stood His Ground

Kiril Mokrov

Just a story I created for a drama class monologue. Hope you like it.

Tears of an Gaurdian Angel

Super Giraffe

Babard is an Gaurdian Angel. His human child has been taken away... what can he do?

Crystal Dreams 4

Zack T. Fester (AKA Strider)

Retreat, Regroup, and attack

Come Now and Hear

Chris Stanton

This is another poem that I wrote. It doesn't deal with any main character and there's really no plot to it. But, it is strictly related to fantasy. It is an invitation to everyone to come and listen to stories of fantasy and to get lost in those stories.

Battle of the Brave

Nicolei Arnold

When all hope is lost, who is to claim victory?

Warped; Prologue and Chapter 1

Rachel Hart

Set in the distant past, in Central and South America. In a time of warring empires and tribes, a young woman is kidnapped from her village. She falls in love with her 'rescuer', the king of the empire she was kidnapped by. When the queen dies, the empire needs a new co-ruler. The young woman wants it to be her, not knowing what dangers will lie ahead. In the form of the king, or the conspirators against the king, her life is threatened, and she has to be stronger than ever before if she is to make it through alive...

The Awkward Hero

Robin Graaf

Written as a means to explain some situations I encountered on vacation to myself. Moral of the story? Don't be afraid, because being afraid of everything makes you blind for the beauty of that which is already there. I've learned that lesson. The hard way - by going to France.

The Dreamer's Tale

Shawn Reed

Perhaps some of you wonder how the title has anything to do with the story... Well, this was originally a project I did for a composition class in high school. We needed to write a story in the fashion of a noted artist. I chose the only well-known medieval age writer. I consider myself a dreamer. Thus, this is the story I told.

Azura Sun, Chapter 1

Ethan Baker

Azura Sun is a mainstream, non-furry science fiction novella that I wrote in high school over five years ago. It is my first completed work. I'm currently in the process of updating and revising the whole book.

Battle Standard

Sara Rupp-Moody

I wrote this for school when we were supposed to do an essay on what our first and last name meant. But my teacher didn't like that it was a story, so, I got a C. *grumbles* -_-

Dragon Poem

Laura Santamaria

This poem actually is part of a longer story I'm writing. I'm not going to get into it here, but the main character uses this poem in an ancient magic she invokes.

The Warriors (Part 2)

Jason Reed

The introductio of Nosajs enemy and the purpose of his mission


Allison Starkweather

I did this for my creative writing class last semester. It had to be a narrative story--no dialogue. Not my preferred style, since dialogue is one of my strengths, but I'm happy with how it turned out.

I Stand to Face the Sun

Harmonie Perry

This is sheer determination.... Read it slowly....

Cotter's Stand

Katheryn Heminger

This poem was written all over the place; I wrote the first two verses in my bedroom, the next few stanzas on a computer at the library, a few more verses at home, another half-page on paper at the library, and the last four verses at home! I've always liked last stands, I don't know why - maybe the opportunity for heroism and a tear-jerking death. (Does that sound morbid, anyone?) Anyway, this is a sort of ballad, a tale the teller recites to coax drinks out of his listeners; in this case, however, there is something special about the teller.

The Lone Wild Heart: Chapter 20 - A Lesson in Courage

Christina Stoppa

Let the trials begin! Arcturus will finally begin his lessons under Kuriyami's guidance.

Shadows I-III

James Anderson

My greatest story yet, a young man sucked into a story of divine greed and demonic wrath upon his very soul.

Gylbin's Quest

Jonathan Bahamundi

What if finding love was a lot like a quest?This is a poem about courage, determination, overcoming the odds, and love!
