The Citadel, chapter three

Louise Boucher

I'm very pleased with how this one turned out, its very dark and you'll probably want to hug poor Haydain by the end but I'm glad I've written it! Took a while and much deliberating and late nights fussing over the words. Still I never said things were going to be easy in this story. I think this balances the happier beginning a bit better and starts to hint at the problems the Dragonians face, problems they seem to have a knack of making worse for themselves. This is the crescendo of the first two chapters - though not of the whole story and you just wait until Chapter Five if you want to see some of the characters have their minds blown away! There are even a few hints to what may happen in the future and some themes developing to watch out for later. Comments and criticism appreciated and mulled over as always. If you want to discuss this chapter with me or ask a question about it you can post a message in this journal entry.

CH.05 Acquaintances

Lora Sigmon

This chapter is shorter than most of the others, but don't worry, that changes soon. Yippee... Not much happens in this one either. I've got an art account, and I'll upload pictures on it, since that's just simpler. PLEASE COMMENT!!! :)

Chapter 2: Dreams of Shadow and Power

Henrik Lerdahl

Our story continues with this very short and insignificant chapter. I'd read too much Lovecraft when I wrote it. We get glimpses and moods here, but not much substance. S'good anyway.

Chapter 6: The Song of Blood and Names

Henrik Lerdahl

The Grand Finale, the Great Climax: After the terrible disaster has struck, and all his plans have shown their ultimate consequences, Murkha makes a final gambit to save himself, his world and his companion. But will the desperate plans of a single over-proud magician be enough to stop the incarnation of the Nameless? And even worse: What will happen if he should succeed? EDIT: I have been informed that the small line included in a magical formula needs to be translated. It's in Sylvan (self-made lingo), and reads roughly like this: 'We give pattern to they who have no pattern. I dance sorcery on them and upon their life' More or less. For more info on Sylvan, don't hesitate to ask.

Chapter 2: Joseph brings Sorieya home with him to Halifax to a very mixed welcome and discovers something going on that is abhorant to both of them

Priestess Initiation

Elenna M. Kraft

The initiation of young novices into the priestess caste. Note#1: Set in the world Arondi, the original world in which my novel takes place. Note#2: The German original was an experiment with style and mood. As my friend told me that I'd done a rather nice job of capturing the atmosphere, I wanted to try to translate it into English without 'killing the mood'. What do you think?

Nik Rode

Stories from the World Below: Part 01, The Ritual

Karen-Birgitte Borud

This story was, when I started writing, set in the Guild Wars universe, mostly because I didn't bother make my own universe there and then. However, in 'Guild Wars: Eye of the North', an expencion pack that was released shortly after I started writing, the cavesystems I had made for my people were suddenly inhabitated by a race called the Azura. I got so angry I pulled the story right out of GW and changed all GW related names, and now there is no trace of GW left. Which I guess might as well be a good thing, because as a fanfic I couldn't post it here.

Finally Tara wonders how grown-ups (in her eyes) can be so wierd and confusing as she seemt to oversee the whole situation from her little girls point of view...

The Priest

Maxius Rider

 Okay This one I wrote for an English Examthe starting line/sentence was given to us and we had to write a story which contained that line somewhere.My teacher gave me 15/20 and his reason for it was that he thought I had taken it from some other author's work :PAnyways It's an original piece done by me ^_^The Priest's Folly is about this desperate man who is visited by a mysterious figure who gives him a book containing Dark Arts Majick spells. The Priest uses the book in desperation and then has to deal with the consequences. ^_^"The Priest's Folly" has been divided in two PartsThis is the First PartEnjoy
