The Wheel

Claire Robertson

Five thousand (or so) words. Life, death, fear, love, and all that good stuff, condensed into something that's probably too symbolic, you know? This combined with far too many references to The Inferno. You know you can't resist the hazy, stratified City and the wheel it shelters.

Shadow Dances 2

Tawny Marlowe

As pieces of her past are revealed, Liz Etah struggles with the painful memories. But she knows that to escape, she has to explore everything, every memory...no matter the cost.

Shadow Dances 3

Tawny Marlowe

Damian learns the dark secret that Liz hides from him, and gains confirmation for many of his own unvoiced suspicions. But even as he learns there is a way to save her, he is forced to watch as she is pulled ever farther away from him by her dark Master.

War of Ghost and Bodies pt. 1

Remelisa Cullitan

Intro to a story of sorcery and ancient times.... erm. That doesn't really tell you much, but hopefully the first paragraph catches your attention... just so you know, I know that it isn't normal to switch point of views suddenly, but please deal with it. I tried adding extra space and obvious changes so it can flow for you, my dear, dear, readers.

Hell I

Ashley Sabath

This is the first part of a poem I had to write for school. It's loosely based on ideas created by Dante in his 'Divine Comedy' but I didn't copy anything from it. Enjoy!

Hell Goes Corporate

Alexandre Beland-Bernard

Last year, in my medieval literature class, we read Dante's Inferno. Before writing this story, I was wondering what Dante's Hell would be like today. This story is the answer produced by my fingers and my subconscious. This is one of the stories I put in my Creative Writing portfolio.

The Levels of Yar: Canto 1

Jeannette Owens

This is a canto/tercet form poem about The Levels of yar. The Levels of Yar are a parody of Dante's Inferno, but about the levels of insanity not hell. Thus Yar means any form of mental illness or disorder. This is canto one of 18, and is just an intro. Trust me the surreal factor will kick in canto 2.

The Levels of Yar: Canto 3

Jeannette Owens

This is a canto/tercet form poem about The Levels of yar. The Levels of Yar are a parody of Dante's Inferno, but about the levels of insanity not hell. Thus Yar means any form of mental illness or disorder. This is canto 3 of 18.

Dante and Vincent Prologue

Andrijana Ignjatovic

In which Vincent seeks out a woman who has seen something she shouldn’t have and finds out that she knows more about him then he is comfortable with. Secrets will be revealed and consequences will be paid. 'Janna' is an Arabic word meaning 'heaven'. In my world it means 'kindred soul'.

Children of Ilma #18

Paulien van der Krift

Náriël and the boys of Arrentax on their mission to find the Book of Spells.

Learning after Death

Michael Chui

A story I did for English class, it swims around Greek mythology and Dante's 'The Inferno'. It's about how a person can be given a second chance to right his wrongs, but it leaves what the wrongs were abstract. Make your own thoughts on it. I might make a sequel. See if you can tell what the shadow represents before the end, though not even the end gives it away.

Children of Ilma #17

Paulien van der Krift

Náriël.... on her way to Rindoor to get the Book of Spells.

Dante: Prelude

Alex Peet

This one I like to think is very gothic and disturbing. I wrote the first part for school, and the rest as an individual interest, but hopefully everyone likes it. Ill be updating it later as the story progresses.

The Levels of Yar: Canto 2

Jeannette Owens

This is a canto/tercet form poem about The Levels of yar. The Levels of Yar are a parody of Dante's Inferno, but about the levels of insanity not hell. Thus Yar means any form of mental illness or disorder. This is canto 2 of 18.

Dante and Vincent 1

Andrijana Ignjatovic

In where we meet Dante, a guy who is trying to get back to his old self again after a slight depression. He gets a new friend and an unknown enemy. And who is this Nemesin guy anyway? Djeas is a soul trap Memento te mortalem esse is Latin and means “Remember that you are mortal.” Canis filius is Latin and means SoB.

Shadow Dances

Tawny Marlowe

In a future world, the war is over, but a new battle has only just begun. Caught in this fight, two people must learn to trust each other in order to save themselves, and the only world they know. But first, she has to relive her past, to understand her future.
