Lady Marin's Story

Emilie Finn

This story introduces a new set of characters from a coastal village in a country to the far west of Lauralia. I call it my Louisa May Alcott story, because it's written very much in a 19th century style. Part two is in my Other Works section. (Don't ask me why this one qualifies as fantasy and part two doesn't...)

The Academy: 2

Emilie Finn

The conclusion of Karen, Veronica, Lori, and Harry's eventful final year at the Academy.

* Scratching Amber (for Brandi)


If anyone was wondering why, exactly, Millace is such a sarcastic jerk when he meets Securen, (no, believe it or not, it's not genetic), this is the beginning of the answer. If anyone has no idea who Millace is, I suppose it doesn't matter much. This, is for my friend Brandi, and excelent writer in her own right who has a fondness for Millace that matches even my own.Post Scriptum: Clan of the Owl, the tale in which Securen and Millace appear, is currently down for repairs. I am leaving this up because I consider it interesting in its own right, if depressing.

Great Uncle Nick

Paula Lenon

 Honestly, I didn't know what this poem was about 'til I read it to my dad. He explained it to me. Thanks, dad. :DApparently, the speaker of this poem is a girl who enjoyed the magic of Christmas. But something happened when she turned nine. The magic seemed to die. Maybe someone told her Santa wasn't real, I don't know. But Christmas wasn't the same. Until she had her own family, and with her young children the magic was reborn. 


Skyler Vonsia

A poem about the innocence of children.


Helena Nilsson

Normal 0 21 Right, I had this submitted once before, but the first thing I did when it was accepted was removing a code in the beginning that I though I had messed up. Proved that removing the code, removed the whole thing. -- This piece was written as a prompt that went out of hand. I was supposed to write about bubbles. And I came to think of the multicoloured smoke that came from a building in one of my old stories. And I thought of playful demon brats. And so, my little prankster Sansy was born ^_^ In this piece you also meet a mysterious woman. Hopefully I'll get around to piece her into more stories later since she is quite important. The brother: keep him or kick him? Right now he only fills dead space, but he tickles my mind...

Psychotic: Chapter 1

Caitlin Lander

This is the first chapter or so of the story that spawned "Epic Tale".  I know it needs work, of course, but I was curious to see what other people thought of it, so here it is ^-^ I hadn't read it in a very long time, so I was pleansantly surprised when I read it a little bit ago.  Maybe I can put my two stories back together and have a nice little book...The girl, Psyche, lives in a futuristic world where everything has been industrialized and the sky is obscured by a red haze.  After her 16th birthday, however, she finds that an interesting new abitliy is starting to change everything she has ever known...
