Magic's Shadows Chapters 1-2

Queen Carpenter

Yay! I'm going to rewrite this someday, but I had to take a break from it. It was all tangles and knots, and not a thing I could do with it. Plus, I'm one of the crazy obsessive ones who goes sleepless nights writing stories, and I had to get away from it for awhile. But i still love this thing. So here's the rough draft. Needs a lot of grammatical, etc. work, but i'd like to get comments/suggestions on plot/characters and stuff. The plot is copywrited, btw. Did it first thing, since I dreamt it all. :)

This is the next chapter in my slightly disturbing saga about a man's adventures in the afterlife.

The Dream - Part II (Tim's Journey)

The second part to the Dream. This wasn't actually IN my friend Tom's dream that he told me about. But I decided that I liked it a bit, so I continued it. Although you wouldn't know that these stories were related at all, unless I told you. It's the other plot.

Naked Train Station

Emily Grist

I love the reactions I have to thise story, so keep them coming. Usually every one of them is, 'This is the type of story that keep you up at night, wondering.'

Well... he can't. Or, if he did... he lost her...

Flight - In Arabic Verse

Cathryn Faerwald

This is in a traditional Arabic poetry format called Quasida. It follows a three-part structure. The first section is Rememberance and an invocation of the lost love, the second Journey which often digresses into tangents about the meaning of the journey itself, and Boasting about the narriators wonderful qualities. The boast often end with a meditation on loss. In the Quasida, every verse has four lines, and as in ancient Greek poetry, many epithets are used for items and animals.
