Tales of Altomia: The Box - Chapter One

Skyler Crouse

Lauren Wiseblade was just trying to make his way in the world; namely, kicking butt, and avoiding having his butt kicked. Yes, he knows it's a girl's name. And yes, he would NOT like you to point that out. Follow Lauren's hilarious adventures with the enchanter Jared Starfist and the Takma Hurdill Mimsy, and how a certain Box caused the creation of a mountain. This chapter shows Jared's unusual entrance into the bar of the Gambling Gnome, Lauren's decision to take up the job and the resulting humiliation of trying to look tough. Note: You might want to read A Brief History of Altomia first before you read any of the Tales of Altomia. You don't have to, and it's usually more fun to find out about this strange world I have devised through the actual stories that the history, but, well, MEH. Also, constructive criticism would be just smashing, guys. Once again, a cookie for Shanra for her very helpful advice.

Ashley Bruce

This is the very first chapter in a story which I have been trying to write for ages. I still not completely happy with it but I think this is the best version. I havn't quite decided on the story's name, I was think along the lines of 'A darkened heart' but I don't know! Any suggestions whould be gladly appreciated = o)

The Chronicles of Ultima: The End

Kaitlin Hatman

This is based on a dream I had awhile ago. In a series of Chronicles it would actually be the last book, but I liked how the prologue turned out so I thought I'd put it up here. Critique is always welcome! C:

Just somethin I did a while back. Maybe I'll do a story about it.

Time Walks on Slowly

Samantha Peterson

This is a poem based on my evil mage/lich character, Dalamar uth Allegharti, also known as the Dark One. It is a bit of a biography for her, but only if you're perceptive.

Forever Shadow: Chapter I: Beginnings

Siegfried Baumann

This is the first chapter in my epic book Forever Shadow. The map in the beginning (if it even shows up) will be really small since I had to rescale it and will be hard to read. I recommend that you see my full map at my Elfwood art gallery to be found here.

This is a story I made up on the spot and I probably wpn't finish it cause I hardly ever finish long stories. But we'll see.

The Story of the Queen

Amber 'Vaya' Hill

This is actually based on a dream that I had, I didn't get to live through the entire story though, my parents woke me up. So I'm going to write it and live it that way.

The River Passing By

The river runs so cool and swift, yet swifter and sweeter still flows the song of the unicorn......

Santa Claus: Medieval Secret Undercover Agent---Episode Four, Slimetrail Skulks SantaVille

Paul Doyle

---This story is for Elfwood writer Che Franz Joseph Monro, who has been an excellent reader/critic, and is a fantastic writer in his own right--- I admit, I like Episode Three even though it's strange and not for the easily offended. However, there seems to be a lot in it saying 'this story sequence is doomed to imminent lameness after this installment.' It took me a long time to get back to this story, because a great number of things happening in my real life, like moving, getting eye muscle surgery for my son, getting into a couple minor auto accidents, and the holidays---and, of course, getting my Elfwood art gallery up. I'm glad I took a while coming back to this story, because this turned out way better (and way longer) than originally planned.Quick recap: Part One introduces the insanity and wins Mod's Choice despite a flawed story. Part Two focuses on adventure and some cheesy music. Part Three points out the strangeness of a certain religion, and winds up being bizarre (and gets the fewest 'hits') because I was willing to take risks. Part Four also takes risks. It doesn't take place on the border of Orcaporka on the planet Terradum, but at Santa's Village at the North Pole of our very own Earth. If you ever wondered what labor relations were like at the North Pole, here ya go. I believe this is the best one yet. I have scaled back the insane wackiness and taken a more mild, relaxed approach. Slimetrail the Imp has his moment of glory in this story. Brian Claus (the real brains behind Santa's Village) is unveiled in all his zitty, nerdy yet strangely cool glory. When you're done reading, please let me know if I should continue this story or not. I'd sooner discontinue it, rather than let it get staler and triter than your average made-for-TV 'Heartwarming Emotional Family Christmas Reunion Mushiness.' Or, as Neil Young sang so many years ago, 'It's better to burn out than it is to rust.'
