Fishes and Flies, 1

Carmel Shachar

An evil witch is nothing to sneeze at, unless you're ten and curious.

Through the Woods

Carrie Miller

This poem was inspired by a course I took in fairy tales and folklore. I was particularly intrigued by the idea present in our cultural mythology that states that forests/woods are bad places. Hence this poem.

The Enchantresses' Powers

Amarantha Dyuaaxchs

At the end of a war of the world, two sisters try to resolve differences to their own benefit.

The Kallian Swallow

Tina Andersen

Okay, backstory goes that, basically, Leman conquered Yanimara's homeland, and for rather political reasons forced her into marriage by slaughtering a village for each day she said no. Worked like a charm, no? ;) Incidentally, Leman and Yanimara are the ancestors of Aghamay and Aghanim from my story 'Origins of the Kingdom'.

Thirteen Cookies (poem)

Emma-Jane Smith

This is a funny little poem about cookies and some monsters who come to visit! Enjoy!

Tea Puddles and Falling Elves

Rochelle Watts

Not really sure where I'm going with this piece. I just got this image of coming upon an elf and the elf going gracefully off the side of the roof. After I wrote it, I realized it sounds like an intro to something. But I haven't decided what the elf was doing on top of the roof and what is so special about the knife, so I'm at a loss for continuing the plot.

Prophecy Story: The Fifth Bit

Erin Luce

In the latest bit, the travelers keep on traveling. Borris has a nasty surprise while snacking on some tarts, Io learns some history, Umber raises his voice (gasp), and we gain a little insight as to what happened at Elkwolf.

To Rob a Dragon - 2 The Dragon

Valerie Lamb

Next chapter in my little saga. George has tea with the dragon and a new character is introduced who some of you may find eerily familiar... Interesting little fact: This story has become an end-of-year project. I have the best teacher. I haven't gotten my grade yet, but I'll be sure to tell you guys what it is when I do!

Randomness For The Sake Of Randomnity... ?

Bridgette Chaffey

Personally, I have absolutely no clue if randomity is indeed a word. In fact, I'm quite curious... But moving on, this is a story I wrote with one of my best friends, Zoe (remember the evil lunchbox-stealing fiend from P.O.T.L. 1?), and I decided I'd spread that randomnity around! Let me explain this deep and random randomeness, (as you can see, I like saying random), you see, Zoe and I did this in class and you had to write a sentance with the beginning chosen by the teacher. So, the writing in bold is my handwork, and the italic is hers. See what happens when you give me an excuse to write crazyness?!?

The Debate

Alexandre Beland-Bernard

This is a story of a knight and a dragon. The foolhardy, glory-blinded knight seeks to put an end to the dragon's long life, while the dragon seeks to make the knight wake up and see truth (that he is stupid). In the end, they both fail. The end needs a bit of work still, and the dialog needs to be longer. I have worked on it and the result is the story named 'The Second Debate' which is also on Elfwood.

Frangipani Tea

Chester Copperpot

Hmm this one came from some more of that strange lost imagery, the sight of and abandoned frangipani, things tend to grow out of the tiniest of fragmentry images left like little votive gifts to the passing writer

Rise of the New South

Deborah Cullins Smith

A new era in society is rising in the Southern States -- with the help of technology and a new breed of servants. But can the South truly rise again? And who will lead them to prominence? It's The Stepford Wives --- with a twist! This story was part of the Projects with James Bowers. And enormously fun to write!

A Tea Story

Erin McLaughlin

Shade debates over telling her close-minded boyfriend some painful information about her personal life. I wrote this at a writing workshop. the Assignment was “someone decides something while preparing of drinking a cup of tea.” Shade and Tek are part of another story I am working on. I will post it when it's done, but that might be a while
