Two bookkeepers find themselves on an adventure that takes them closer than they expected.
This is my entry in the Elfwood Valentine's Day contest. First, about the story. If you couldn't gather, a mermaid and a dragon have fallen in love with each other, but obviously this relationship is impossible (not only because of their different breeds but because the mermaid is fatally poisoned by her contaminated water). Red tide, a large scale infection of the water by a special breed of plankton, has caused her sickness (heh, science class...). So, as she is dying, her dragon love lifts her to his back and takes flight, carrying her alongside the seagulls that she has watched from beneath the water every day. With him (riding on his back) where she finds the most comfort, she dies. And yes, "yester" is a word (the Middle English form of "yesterday").On the form - holy cow, sonnets are sooo hard to write! Ahem, all this info I'm about to give is for the poetry geeks who want to make sure that I really did write this in sonnet form correctly. This is a Shakespearean (English) sonnet. I didn't want to write a common AABBCCDD rhyme scheme poem, so I managed to get a sonnet out. Now, after doing much research to make sure that I knew the form of a sonnet, this sonnet has been written in the traditional English sonnet rhyme scheme, ABABCDCDEFEFGG, the last two (GG) being a heroic couplet. While most sonnets are written in iambic pentameter, they are not required to be (citing Dr. Axelridge). Therefore, my sonnet is written in iambic tetrameter, with an occasional trochee in there, bringing the syllable count of every line to ten. Heh, sorry to get all technical. :D Your future English major (I hope...) :)If you can't pick out the rhyme scheme, here it is - waited-fated, tore-core, frail-trail, smut-but, slowed-road, her-were, ride-died.Hope you enjoy!
This was written following a particularly nasty flamewar over at the livejournal community 'Elfwoodrants.' I don't even recall what the topic of the disagreement was, but it spawned a rare fit of poetry. Pure silliness, really.
This chapter is probably the least important for moving the story forward, but the most interesting to Elfwooders *grin* Welcome to a tour of the Humanwood Fantasy Art Gallery.
This story is being written particularly for Elfwood...I don't think the 'Humanwood Fantasy Art Gallery' would make near as much sense to any other readers ;o) I won't say it's my best writing, but I think it's my best story so far :o) Don't worry, it'll get better from here (if I ever finish writing it!)
A kid's story about a Clown and Elfwood town. enjoy and critique please!
This is a story i wrote about my dear friends from Elfwood. Only I added a cute fantasy punch. Links to the said people are below. Please visit them. They are very dear to me. All other people in the story other than Holly (me) are made up! the Wiverin Lybrary belongs to ELFWOOD, And Barbie belongs to Matel. I DO NOT OWN IT OR CLAIM TO this basically explaines the Wiverin Defenders series
Just a little poem to celebrate the opening of my library at Elfwood.
When Elfwood went down again, I had an image of how this happened, and just had to write it down *g*. BTW, the first illustration was made by V.E.Lehkonen (the picture links to the original, which is much larger), the second one was made by the God of Elfwood, Thomas Abrahamsson, himself, who gave permission to use it.
Based on a true story. All names have been changed to protect those involved. (Me, for instance)
The title explains it. Sorry it took so long to get up here.

Had to do a poem in class the other day and I've kind of developed a strange style. Wanted to try some more, see how it turned out. I've also been wanting to kind of make a 'thank you' to Elfwood for just being there. ^=^ Here it is!
This story is inspired by elfwood itself! This is how I feel when I move from story to story, from world to world by pressing the random button.
This is my entry to the elfwood writing contest inspired by this piece- http://www.elfwood.com/~natalia007/The-demise-of-a-god.3515348.htmlif its not clear in the text, the artist mentioned drawing the scene is Natalia P. Gutierrez (who created the picture I was inspired by, and the writer/storyteller mentioned is myself. (I guess the poet would be me as well as I included a small bit of poetry at the end, if you can call it that)I was very last minute in writing this... there was less than an hour until the deadline when I finally got it done. I hope it dosen't seem too rushed and sloppy so please feel free to point out any typos or other mistakes I may have missed ^_^
This is a simple little ditty about my exploration here.
The introduction to the starting characters of this tale. A high school student having trouble in accepting reality, a maiden yearning to discover her own true feelings, a young man who strays from the path which most people choose, and a half-elven who is yet to accept the ancient clan's heritage. When an aged artist conveys the message about the end of the world, a great journey lies in the future of the children. But before that, they first strive to find out the distinct differance between truth and imagination they thought they once know.
