This is a poem I wrote awhile ago, that got published in my High School's literary magazine, 'Mindprints'. I'm pretty proud of it, and I hope you enjoy it too!
A firebird, not often seen in the Twilight City, arrives.
And Amaurea returns. Vahie is also delighted to learn something about the Order's library.
I think Vahie needs more good luck - she's going to try and steal a most precious item from Sondaston.
Vahie's induction into the Order - sort of. She gets called and tested, and I had fun with that.
This is a tale based around the mythology of the Russian firebird. It's not really set in Russia, but who's counting? March 2003 6 pgs
Though inspired by Stravinsky's ballet, the story is totally different. And it's present tense. For some odd reason.
Oh, the joys of meeting a contact that knows way more than you do about the intelligence business...
Start of Part Two - also a change of PoV to Vahie. Totally new tangent, so you'll have to wait for Part Three to find out what happens to Driel. Don't hurt me! *g*
Lucky Vahie - she finally gets her coveted first mission.
I was kind of depressed when I wrote this. So it is one of my weirder works. I hope you enjoy it!
I wrote this story long, long ago while still in grade school. I chanced upon it, liked the basic framework, and rewrote it . Anyhow, this is a younger sort of story--so go easy on it! However, please feel free to correct any mistakes--it was late at night when i rewrote the majority of it. (tweaked a bit)
Vahie pretends not to freak out as she prepares for her first mission. Bit of a history lesson, too.
This is an older story I did back in the last year of high school. Despite the change in my writing over the years, I still enjoy this story.
A little fairy tale for you. Not a proper one, more a kind of religious myth that belongs to no religion. I can't remember the name for this kind of story, so I'll stop now. This, again, was written a long time ago, when I was probably 14 but possibly 15, but I think it's alright.
