The Serpent's Coil - Prologue

Mike Theodorsson

This is the lament of the black sorcerer, and also the prologue to my story 'The Serpent's Coil'.

Mithandrale, 1st installment

Emily MacKenzie

This is the first chapter of a novel which I have been writing for a long time, and have got quite a lot further with than I usually do. i can really see this one going somewhere, but i'd love to know what you think of it and whether or not you'd like me to post some more up.

Evil Designs

Delyth Williams

A dark mage watches over his next victims in the dark tower of his keep, planning their untimely demise with his snivelling underhand.

The Betrayal of Amaranthe: Chapter 10

Mercedes Boggs

Ana tries to come to grips with her fear while preparing to confront the very thing that caused it. Arathyn must face the aftermath of his decisions.

The Betrayal of Amaranthe: Chapter 7

Mercedes Boggs

Falin has rescued Ana from Kalor's grasp, but is he only walking into a trap.

Predators

Catrine Sandal

Thirain is an old character of mine, central in my novel series. He is one of the villain's generals, although he frequently travels around the world without anyone knowing who he is. He is thousands of years old, one of the most powerful magicians in the world, and tend to be underrated. As you will see. This is just a small story I put together one day, it's not my best, but not my worst. Written quite a while ago, but I've never uploaded it before now. I hope it's correctly categorized - the novel series is high fantasy, so I tend to think of everything concerning it as that...

Prologue

Dawn Jansen

This is a possible prologue to my book. I am still not completely satisfied with it and I am open to suggestions. I'm one little insecure writer. Thanks for your feedback

The Journal of Rinya Pyris Part 2

E. Nadeau

As you can see, she's not quite dead yet.

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.

Will Jacob, Sebastian, Sehora and Hiller survive the Battle of Benthic Hall! I can't take it! Read on, quick!

Magick the Third, a Tale Around Montilin

Nicolas Godbout

The third installment of Magick is finished. I literally wrote this in the span of about 3 hours. Inspiration hit me (from more than one angle) and this just came pouring out. Hope you enjoy it. There's a fair amount more meaningful dialogue and plot-formation in this one, as well as more references to the main Montilin storyline.

Give Me Wings, That I Might Soar (Part One)

Cullen Groves

I was thinking about World War One aces--imitating Snoopy, one might say--and suddenly I was struck by this idea. A German sorcerer was recruited by the Central Powers in an attempt to break the stalemate in the trenches, and only a wizard can oppose him, enlisting the aid of a British pilot to seek the sorcerer.

Whirlworm

Eluna Ardito

Strange things seemed to happen in town. Beautiful young boys disappearing and winds having their own minds. Devious minds. And how about that long forgotten memory, that suddenly appeared again? Was it real or a trick of the mind?

Conflict Sorcere

Bart Meijer

The second story. It may seem a bit 'stereotype', but remember I was only 17 at the time.

Traveling Partners

Kat McGrath

Okay, so this was a story I had up before, but somehow got deleted... So, here it is again.

To Honor the Oath part 1

Joshua Davids

Well this is a start of a small sub plot in the book I am working on with this title. I went though and did an edit of it and this is what I have gotten so far. Hopefully I got out all the run on sentences and other mistakes. Anyways this story arc features a mage and a knight character and the hard choices they have to make amid the chaos of the battlefield in a split second and live with the choices they made during those rash moments when emotions ran high. It also tries to answer the question of how far would one go to keep an oath they gave, would they even kill the one they love to keep their word?

Door of the Ancients - Chapter Three

Andrew Rice

Chapter Three of the novel. It's short. It's meant to set up the next chapter for a load of information and a sweet battle scene ;)

Hellbent 1

Aubra Penner

This is a strange snippet of story that I wrote late one night when my muse woke screaming from a long nap. There's more to come, but I only have a vague idea of it.

Celtic Myth

Ashley Brodie

The first draft of my 'celtic myth' that I did for my AS Level English preperation coursework. A tragic love story, as in my research they seemed to really like such things. It was supposed to be a short story and this version is 1453 words over the limit, so it is the longer version before it was ripped to pieces. There are actually three versions of this story. This one, a short one, and a longer one.
