The Conquerors

David Daumit

Based on a real life incident, this story will hopefully offer you some chuckles at my expense (better at mine than at yours, huh?).

Slithering Sin

Robyn Petrik

Just a few words describing the work of the devil.

One end

R.E. Kankaanpää

I'm not quite sure... It's improvised, did it at school. First I thought I was gonna save him, but then I guess.. I just didn't bother. I suppose it's clear enough. I think it's a sort of parody. But that's up to you to decide. And nitpick.

Serpent

Nathaniel Weaver

This is a story I wrote in 8th grade. My teacher liked it and so did I. I'd like some advice because writing isn't my strongpoint.

Mercy

Danielle Colman

This is my first (and only) really successful attempt at horror. I don't want you to be scared. I just want you to be thoroughly, thoroughly, freaked out. Enjoy, and please comment.

Fiery Dream World

Amy Murrpau' Chonko

This is my world and despite what you all may think it does exist...on the astral plane however

Through the Windows of His Eyes

Stephanie Maynard

Well,yet another Morta Drakon instalment. For those wondering, this takes place shortly after 'Serpent's Lethel Kiss' and a few weeks before 'Demoness' Song' It's actully thanks to two lines in this poem that this poem series ever got started. Those to lines added with my character Morta, and presto! Morta had become my muse. The entire Morta collection was me trying to put those two lines into a completed poem. Funny old world ;) Hmmm, I just realized I need to give this beautiful angel of Morta's a name. Ideas anyone?

The silver brooch - Chapter Five

Maria Elmindreda L

In this chapter we meet Roland Astar again and find out that the young man is more than what he seems to be...

The Legend of Ael: Celtic

Jermaine Joseph

Chapter 3 of The Legend of Ael: Celtic.

A godly love

Marcel Nyström

13/04/2001-After reading a story of Psyche and Cupid, I thought it was far from complete. But I didn't want to rewrite that one but create a new one.

Evensong

Simi *Muffin Queen*

You may already know her story; it is an old, old story. It is the story of a garden, and the loss of perfection. You may already know Lilith's story, but this is not hers. This story is not so old as that, for Lilith is older than all things. This story is about Eve. This is Eve's story of the garden and the snake's secret smile. I was a little hesitant to write this at all, and even more hesitant to put it on Elfwood. It does have a heavy religious tone to it, but I'm not trying to preach anything. I've been obsessed with telling Lilith's side of the story, and when someone suggested I tell Eve's, I couldn't resist. I apologize if this offends anyone in any way. Glossary of Hebrew terms (italics) at the end of the story. Comments and critiques welcomed. Enjoy!

Reflections*

Stephanie Rennolds

All right, so I was inspired by my friend Naomi's story about a race of vampires modeled after snakes. So this is my first installment of my own story. It may not seem like much now, but this is just in relation to In Shades Of Amber. It's supposed to show you how Irri's head works... ^_~ It has more ... purpose. I really just liked writing the imagery in this one, though, so enjoy. (This is also one of her many comment prizes!)

Ghosts of Sulir

A.S. Pritchard

Written in January of 2005. In a convoluted crazy way, this was inspired by looking at gem stones online.

Essence of the Moon

Mai Zhang

In which there a rather nice ending.

The Lightbringer - Part 1

Christina Brönnestam

I do not only like stories with a lot of psychological tension, I am also a fan of old-fashioned adventure stories. This not-very-ambitious novelette (which WILL published in its entirety here in Wyvern) is the first one I try to write directly in English. The theme has been used a lot of times, by for example the great author Selma Lagerlöf, but this is my own personal version... More parts will come later!

Fargthh's Curse

Erick Emert

This is a firesong sung when visitors stop in the village of Thelra before travelling through nearby Kyrrell Swamp. It depicts a tale of valor yet foolishness and serves as a warning to those who would enter Kyrrell with no thought to the dangers found there. Ahllie's Papa sang this song many times at local gatherings. As the singer, he used dramatic facial expressions and hand movements along with a clear, bold voice. {This poem was published by Freelance Writers Net)

Standard of the Greater Lords

Jillian Kielo

This is a fantacy story, one of a collection of stories, that tie in with my 'Standard'world. The exact story name is 'Deorgin's Vision and the Circle of Relife'.

The Basilisk Riders

Rosie a.k.a female fred

I'm not entirely sure about this one.. it's in the same, journal-esque styel of A walk in the Woods, but then again, it's actually set in a fantasy landscape. Enjoy.

Night Crawler

Liz Riza

I got my inspiration for this story from a gallery on Dorian Cleavenger's website. Visit it here: www.dorianart.com.

Naga Adventures: Snakes and Stones(2004)

Vidya Enantia´ Gopalakrishna

Everyone hates snakes. Snakes represent all that is deceitful and evil. They are poisonous creatures that bite and kill any living creature that comes across their path. Or are they? This is the story of a boy who must fight his village's prejudices against the serpentine species. This was actually meant to be the first story in a series of stories involving the relationships between snakes and humans and mainly focusing on Sarras(where, hopefully, he won't sound like such an idiot. oh well, he's got excuses for this story). Unfortunately, this is the only one that actually got into a planning stage, let alone getting written out. And I still don't have any other ideas for more Naga stories. So.....if anyone want to throw an idea my way along with their comments, I'd be happy to hear it! Anyway, enjoy! p.s. i wrote this after reading all five harry potter books. any similarities are purely coincidental. i just have a thing for black hair and green eyes ^_^UPDATE: some corrections made. working on the rest. don't let that stop you from pointing things out to me though!
