Dagora Khelian - Chapter 5

Andrea Smith

Okay, I had to fight several nasty dragons to get thischapter put up with the illustration...I'd appreciate some comments on that, too! Don't mind it's crappiness, please, I'm a better writer than I am an artist.

Gods and Beasts

Michael Ullom

This is my first attempt at a mystery, involving the character I mentioned on the home page. I can honestly say that this is the only story I've ever had to research both alchemy and street gang culture. The conclusion will be online by the end of September. Feel free to comment-It’s one of the few ways I’ll actually learn. One comment-this story has been edited from the original to fit with elfwood guidelines. Anybody interested in my limited knowledge of verbal obscenities can email me at to request the unedited version with the understanding that this transaction is strictly between the author and the individual and not part of the elfwood community.

Dagora Khelian - Chapter 2

Andrea Smith

If you're coming here from someplace other than the previous chapter, I suggest you go and read chapter one. Otherwise, it'll be quite confusing indeed. The plot thickens here, and beware the end! Hope you enjoy.


John Rivenworth' Yoakum

This is a little pilot story, I decided to write it because it sounded cool... I'm gonna work on it more later.

Two Words and a Smile

Amanda Williams

Written for grade ten english class (done about two hours before it was due) this is SUPPOSED to show both 'beast' and 'beauty' or good and evil in equal proportions. The drakes name is from norse mythology although the story is not. I ended up getting 10 out of 10 on this but only 6 out of 10 on the poem I submitted with it. (when the night leaves again.)

Dragon Ahead (Part 1)

Dagora Khelian - Chapter 3

Andrea Smith

Here it is, the third chapter of my yet untitled story. If you have any suggestions for the title, it would be appreciated enormously, as well as any other constructive criticism. What I'm aiming for is for my writing to paint a picture. If you're not getting any pictures from my words, then either you're imagination is busted or I screwed up somewhere. Much obliged if you'd point it out!

Dagora Khelian - Chapter 1

Andrea Smith

This is chapter one in a story I'm slowly crafting in my spare time. I started writing this story on the way to Alabama, going to visit some relatives with my best friend Jenna. It had been rolling around in my head for the longest time, and I decided to put it to paper. Finally, I thought up a title for it! It means 'Battle of the Followers' in Elvish, and is pronounced (dah-GOAR-uh KAY-lee-in) Any constructive criticism is greatly appreciated!

Greyraven Tales: Mystique - Chapter One, Part One

Chris 'Araloki'

This is the first part of my newest story about my fav character; Drake Greyraven. I don't know where the heck I got the inspiration from for this one, except that I remember having a dream the night before about Drake being chased through a dense wood, pursued by silouettes of four-legged men. When I woke up the next day the words just flowed onto the page. I blame the medication ^^
