Licorice Shadow

Emily Grist

Updated. A world of white, burning light. A single black shadow. I wonder what lies within its dark creases of chocolate...? Dedicated to Alex McAlvay.

Sunbound (poem)

Chris Martens

Understand, this isn't any work of art really, it's just something I sorta randomly typed up in about a minute without knowing what I was gonna write, and it turns out it had a theme I expanded on. I wrote some prose to accompany it: You see the bright side? Of course you do. You ARE the bright side; you're on fire, burning, cremating yourself away into nothing; but look, you are so bright, so lovely in your colorful, sanguine flames! You say, look at the bright side? Thank you, that's too bright for me; I'll let you stare into the sun and waste your eyes away. You see the bright side? Yes, of course you do; it's right in front of you; you've been staring at it all your life! what do you mean, no? You say you can see nothing??? Ah. I know what has happened now. You have stared at the sun so long that you have made yourself blind.

Waiting

Al DiBianco

Promise of the forest nymph to the mortal man

Lazy Days

E. Hanna

I don't know what to tell you. I guess this is a sort of alternate reality. The story is to immense for me to see it all, so I've only been able to write a tiny chunk. Hope you enjoy it.

Memories Of The In-Between (prologue)

Gemz Holt

well While I was writing the poem 'Hero' it inspired me to write this. In my opinion you should read this first then the poem, later, but if you have already read the poem, it still doesn't ruin the ending. Well let me know what you think!!!

Dependable as the sun

Brian Petrehn

Not the best piece of lit ya ever saw, but its a start. The end of the world is inevitable, the sun will die someday, hopefully we wont see it when it does.

Calesta-Chapter 2

Amanda Wells

This is a story that I'm writing with my friend Christina Brescia. You can see her website hereand she has given me permission to put the story here on Elfwood. This story has not been edited in too much detail yet, so it's still kind of rough. Any comments/criticisms are very welcome though!

The Sun Sprite and the Moonbeam Fairy

Anniina Jokinen

Untitled

Joshua Young

It's just the beginning... and normally I wouldn't but something this unfinished up here (At least the Guardians Prologue is a whole section.) but I'm looking for some feedback to see if this is in anyway understandable. This story takes place in the same world as a manga I'm working on with a friend- a solar system in which the sun has shrunk and the Earth is dead, and the remanents of humanity hide away inside 'ARKS', which are part of the orbital ring mentioned here.... Anyway..... Yes, The main character is female, and yes, she is 1500 years old.

Beauty and the Beast

Stephanie Walls

Short Story ~ COMPLETED: There is some danger to beauty, as this poor bloke is about to find out. It was one of those little stories that somehow jumps into my head.

She's Always Watching

Jacquelyn Dunlap

Just a little poem. You decide what it means to you.

Hall of Lorin

Jillian Kielo

This is a dumb story I wrote. It is a story (one of many) that tells tales of Kings in the lineages of these lands.

Dragon Mind

Josephine Rosén

Even if you don't believe, I do write poetry too. This is a fantasy inspired poem about my favourite subject; dragons.

White Trinity Ch. 1

Raymond Conrad

This is a story about the White Trinity, it is all described in the story.

How the season's came about.

Sarah Schaeffer

Here's a little story that ended up quite accident with a moral. Feel free to print it out and paste it on any one's door or computer it applies to. Moral of the story: if you dont do your job, yes the Earth will come to a crashing halt, and you will really make the other guys mad. :p

The Sunrider Saga Book One: Chapter Two

These Meadows of God

Robyn Petrik

I wrote this poem in grade 8 as a school assignment. I'm pretty happy with it, but there are a couple of lines that don't really fit.

Celestial Bodies

Nathyun Schnebbe

Random haikus came to mind while driving at night.
