Silver Winged Lady

Erin Murphy

I found an image of a little silver haired and winged fairy, sitting on a tree branch in the snow a while back and I fell in love with it. I wrote this story about her.

A Trick of the Tail

Adam B. Ragg, or 'AdZ von Raggamuffin', or 'Adam Wragg, The Well-Known Typing Error'

A prince from a different land arrives in ours and is captured and treated as a monster. Another story inspired by a Genesis song.

Half-Elven

Simon Pettersson

The next chapter in the semi-coherent story of the elf and human lovers. This is their son. The mother decided to kill herself when the father died of old age, leaving the child alone in a hostile world. This is probably my favourite so far. I think of it, not as a poem, but as a monologue. Think of one person standing in the middle of a stage, to his right, the humans and to his left, the elves. I don't know why I think of it like this, but I think this kind of performance would do it more justice. Some lines would be shouted ('I’m one whole creature, not two halves attached!') and some would be said with a sorrowfilled voice ('Then should I hide myself in loathe and shame?'). *Shrugs* Whatever. Make of it what you will. Somewhere, deep down, there might be a message about racism in this piece.

The Mind-Reader: Cassandra's Tale

Nadia Vélez

In Terra, there are a few gifted ones, usually girls with genetic mutations that enable them to have special abilities. Most of them are outcast by society even though thay are ruled by them. This is the story of one of them who played an important part in the battle against the Unknown Evil even though she was not aware of it.

3 : Castle Caran

Milla Lindqvist

Now we find out just how much trouble Sares did cause by saving Windsong's life.

Shadow Tracker ch. 1-3

Michelle Lackey

You remember all those little Hunvarians I drew back in my gallery? Remember how I said they were characters in a story? Here you go! In the world of Hunvaria, to be different is to be hideous - to stand outside of the rules an act of treachery, but what if that was the only way the others could survive, even if it meant killing yourself for those who hate you? Before Kegra went to the North, she would have laughed in your face for such a question, but now she is not so sure...

Prejudiced

Julian 'Llos' Greene

I wrote this the same time I wrote 'Suffering and Pain'. I drew on the fact I was feeling outcast for a while, and though I'm now 'accepted', some of the younger students are bigots and try to make fun of the way I talk... This poem speaks out against the illusions of division that we have as a human race, even though I constantly can't help but be deceived by the illusion almost all the time.

Aerinna of the Elves Ch. 2

Jennifer Holland

Making a decision is always hard, but perhaps the hardest is when you have to decide to stay with the world you know or abandon them to save a race you don't even believe in. This is what Aerinna is faced with...how will she decide?

Making a decision is always hard, but perhaps the hardest is when you have to decide to stay with the world you know or abandon them to save a race you don't even believe in. This is what Aerinna is faced with...how will she decide?

Shattered dreams..

Jen OCarroll

A small piece inspired by cliche anime series and a short story I wrote when I was young... there was a character in it... an outcast android, abandoned because he was too 'human'. um... yeah... so this is really just a back story.. i may expand the idea to a character or something.. *shrugs*

Black Prophices

Stephanie Less

Just the prophice for the story Black. It is also a song sung by bards in Elven.

Derettahs' Plea -- poem

Anna Smith

This is one of what I call minotaur poetry. This just means that all deal with the minotaur -- as a symbol, as a people, and as my own personal reflection. It is minotaur tradition to create a song for the one you would court, or take as lifemate. Derettahs is one of my roleplay characters, a minotaur who through no fault of her own, ended up murdering her clan. The thing is, no-one, not even Derettahs herself, knows that. She, and everyone else, believes she's guilty, and a coward for running from her people, who will kill her on sight. What she'd done eventually drove her mad. Through a fluke of healing, she was made sane for a while. A human she'd befriended, Aulis, and her eventually fell in love, as she slowly began to go crazy again. This is her song, sung in private, since it could not be given to Aulis himself.

Silver's Story: Prologue

Katie Hallahan

This is the prologue of a novel I've been working on in bits and pieces for years now. It's about a shapeshifter named Silver, who is outcast by her family and now searches for a new life and purpose. In this world, shifters are held in many views - some look down upon them, others covet and worship them, others couldn't care less either way. In any case, this is the prologue to her story, of how she became a shifter and how she was cast out.

C.Tale Prt 2: Up to the Mountain

Nadia Vélez

Cassandra leaves her village, running away from a life in which she felt outcast and mistreated. Hoping to find answers to her many questions, she starts a quest following the path of the moon and the advice of a Dream...

Sward of Earth - Prologue

Michelle Earl

Sword of Earth is the first in a series of five books.  The heroine, Aylanna, is forced to flee her homeland when she is discovered to wield magic.  She meets four other women and goes in search of the Golden Horseshoe. This is first draft.

Shadow Tracker ch. 4-6

Michelle Lackey

In the world of Hunvaria, to be different is to be hideous - to stand outside of the rules an act of treachery, but what if that was the only way the others could survive, even if it meant killing yourself for those who hate you? Before Kegra went to the North, she would have laughed in your face for such a question, but now she is not so sure... ** Our story continues nearly a month after Kegra's arrival. Her first missions have been left out, because... well... quite frankly, they were rather boring and Evvan did all the work. ;)

In the Mind of One

Pete Anderson

I have decided to stick in my genre, my Lyrical Poetry, as much as possible from now on (though I still plan on publishing a bit of my attempt at a sequel to my epic in prose form when it is ready, go figure). I wrote this at the beginning of March 2004, finishing it on the 3rd when I typed it and sent it out to a few friends to sound it. The story speaks for itself, that is my philosophy being spoken. It is also in touch with my 'normal people' perspective that I always take. So here is the tale of a wanderer and the man who takes her in...

The Beast

Henriette Hertz

Ketichi

Hannah Taylor

This is a little story that my friend asked me to write. I can't do good endings, just to warn you...

Spirit Wind's Silver Song

Crystal Meth
