Reality Check

L. Price

A poem I wrote circa 3 a.m. on Tuesday or Wednsday. You tell me what it's about.

Unicorn

Erik Hunger

Kind of describes in a metaphorical way where I was in life a few months ago. The thing that got me started writing it was a work one of my friends did for me. She's on elfwood, so to see it, go here.

A Fairy Tale of New York - Part 4

Sean Daily

My first story from my new roleplaying system! I call it Witchgun, and it's set in New York City in 1936, in an alternate timeline where vampire bats (called chiroptim) and humans have evolved side by side. It's partly a reaction to modern depictions of vampires, which are ultra-hip, ultra-stylish, ultra-powerful and ultra-amoral. Characters like that just stick in my craw. I wanted vampires that had real problems - family, jobs, paying the bills, raising the kids, enduring prejudice - and who weren't immortal and who weren't all powerful. This is the fight in the Benthic Hall. Ack! I can't stand the suspense!

Sebastian and Jacob are joined by two allies. One makes a big impression - in the Benthic Hall. The other leaves our heroes nonplussed.

Welcome to my mind...

Erin Ford

Another Vallen story...

Dragon's Wings (Poem)

Matthew Tucker

A girl rides above the world on her Dragon, just as well all ride above in our fantasies. When reality strikes her dragon down, can anything save her?...

Dragon Riding (poem)

Tansy H. Pye

I wrote this when I was 14 but I still like. In fact I wrote most of these poems around then.

Roll Call: Chapter One

Roehl Sybing

The first, real, full-blown story of Infinite Earths, the story universe I have been trying for so long to get started on. The story exists out of the same concept of parallel worlds as 'Sliders' but draws from many other disciplines, such as politics, current events and other fun stuff that gives a story realism.

A Vampire's Tragedy: Two

Roehl Sybing

Chapter two (YES! Chapter TWO!) of a little story involving the Reality Jumpers and their mission to...well, I'm assuming you have read Chapter One, correct? No? Well, go on, go back, and don't come back without Chapter One! :)

The Cursed Wallet

Jennifer Watkins

During summer school, I had some really dumb english assignments. Since I'm actually very smart in english, and only failed the stupid class in the first place because of attendance, I was a genius in the class. Heh..We had to write a story starting with 'On my way to 7-11 I found a wallet on the ground.' Well, most people wrote whether or not they kept it. I, kinda took a different route...

Living the Dream

Erin Smith

It's a science fiction story set in the future about gaming and people...I'm just going to post what you write in the search words box because that best describes it: virtiual reality dream feel brain chips wire womb love romanace loss humanity program divorce insanity, and anything but sterotypical...initially called Sci-Fi Candy

Reality . . . ?

Yet another excerpt. This one is NOT background information, so feel free to critique my writing style. In this one, which would be close to the end of the novel actually, the evil aliens have captured Ian and Xan and are holding them prisoner. (Nope, I won't tell you why. That would give away too much. Suffice it to say, Ian and Xan don't know either, so it's not really that important.) And while they are being held captive, the aliens do some experiments on Xanthippe! (No probing, though.) So see what happens. I don't want to insult anyone, but parts of this excerpt will not make sense unless you know something about space-time and its geometrical representations. Now if you've read 'A Wrinkle In Time' and other books in that series, this will probably just confuse you further, but it involves the concept of a tesserect. If you're interested or maybe just irritated at my long-winded, confusing explanations, e-mail me, and I'll try to explain it in a way that's actually understandable. (I get the feeling it would ruin the effect of the story if I did all that right here.) One more thing, just to make it clearer to readers; I use italic text to represent thoughts (or emphasis on a spoken word, but that would be between quotes). Also, after rereading, I notice that the word 'it' is used a whole lot. To clarify things, a capitalized 'It' means they are talking about the alien, and a lower case 'it' means they are talking about something else. I suppose I'll have to fix that once I come up with a name for the evil alien race.

The Grave Ride of New York

Ivy Callier

This was another English assignment ofor Mr. Kearney. I guess this is a pretty humorous story, seeing as the last line is 'Won't this make a perfect anecdote to tell the girls?' I never quite understood what anecdote meant, but Mr. K. said it was a humorous telling of a bunch of events and my dictionary, my God, said they are a short account of an incident (especially a biographical one), so, I'm confused. Maybe you won't be?

The Dreamer (chapter 1 and 2)

Rebecca Munford

Seth is just a normal boy with an overactive imagination, or so everybody keeps telling him. But his dreams are becoming to vivid, to real, real enough to kill him. Get ready to join Seth as he plunges into alternate realities during his sleep, not realising he holds the key to the survival of the omniverse.

Breaking Reality ch 3+4

Vegard Lindtner

A man waits idly in his apartment. As the evening unfolds, he is made to question the nature of the reality around him. Has he somehow wound up in another reality? Or is there another reason entirely?

Twisted

Bethany Holthof

There is a moment, in everyone's life, when they know without a doubt.... that reality is twisted...
