Kirstin Bell

This is a moral fairytale about vanity, and the dangers of being vain or trying to become beautiful through the wrong means. It is very child orientated, but can be enjoyed by all. Storyline- princess jealous of sisters beauty, steals something from mermaid to make her more beaiutiful.

Into the Sea Act 1

Amy Schley

This story began with a dream of being a mermaid swimming into the sea. I played around with making it the classic fairy tale of the orphan and the evil witch, but that just seems too cliche. I wanted characters who felt like people I knew. I wanted the Mermaids to actually be adapted to the ocean enviroment, instead of the creation of VERY lonely sailors. I also love the idea of what happens next in fairy tales (Into the Woods, anyone?), and I honestly hate the message of Disney's 'The Little Mermaid.' A sixteen year old girl who abandons her family for a man she has seen once (once!) gets daddy's blessing and eternal happiness? Not in any world I know. So I emphasized the mermaid's self-centeredness, made the witch someone who just does what she has to do to get by, made daddy mermaid bitter, introduced a granddaughter, and let the whole thing run.

Christopher Brackin

This is a poem I wrote for my writings groups anthology. I had a a really strange recurring dream for about a week and I based the poem entirely on that. I can't say what the dream was, as it'll give too much away! :P This poem has two meanings: 1 is easily found when reading it, the other is hidden beneath the words. ^^ One's happy, the other sad. (This wasn't entirely the structure I originally had, but i struggled with the html format, as I'd never done it before.. sorry!!!) Hope you like it!... :)

A Love Tail

Jacqueline Tanner

First off yes, i did use Tail instead of Tale for a reason, it isn't a spelling mistake. The ending may seem strange perhaps, but i think that sometimes you have to believe you were in love before you know you are in love.

Deep beneath the waves at the Heart of the Waters lies the Place of Echoes. There the Leviathan waits.

This was inspired by a song, some finnish folklore and my latest crush ;) I have a thing for tragic lovestories but I guess this one has a happy ending. Sort of.

Deep Seas
