This is the first chapter of a story I've been working on for awhile. Enjoy.
One day this elf grabbed my head and demanded I write his story. A humourous tale of his trials and abandonment. UPDATE: new ending. I like it much better, got rid of my middle school cuteness to finish the story as it deserves.
This story is about a whole civilization of unicorns risking their lives to save one and how with a little courage you can do anything...
I am actually really proud of how this poem turned out. This is my second attempt at a poem in three days, after a two year hiatus! I tried to write a story of the exact same nature as this poem, but failing a completion, turned to poetry instead. This happened after I was inspired by Laura Hewett's poem, The Legend of the Fae. LOL, I hope you enjoy!!! Posted: October 9th, 2003 Updated: October 18th (Thanks everyone!) Moderator's Choice: October 15th, 03
Never was quite too happy with the way the first stanza came out. I'm working on changing it. Any suggestions?
This is a poem that I wrote for my sister. It's also on one of my favorite subjects.
This is a basic legend of Lusture, the world of the unicorns. It tells the story of the First Warriors, the atumanan, and Ciradanorin.
The second part of Blackberry & Snowflake's story - I think this was one of the best early stories I've written at the time - somewhat tense and a rather sad, but touching (at least I hope) ending
A poem about what unicorns and pegasus do all day long untill night returns...
My second Elfwood poem! Another one about Unicorns! (I was on a roll that day :P lol!) Enjoy!
This is (obviously) about unicorns. I know there are a lot of forced rhymes in here, but it was my first every fantasy poem and it has sentimental value. Thanks to Jamie A. Hughes to whom all credit is owed for this revised version of 'Ballad'.
This story is the first chapter in a tale of a shapeshifting unicorn sorceress born and raised as a modern day human.
I was talking to a friend on instant messenger while she was bored at work and she asked me to tell her a story to entertain her. So I started with a standard "Once upon a time..." fairy tale line and somehow managed to keep going until I manufactured an entire story. Finally, I decided to compile the result and post it.The story was written in the span of an hour within the IM conversation. I made some very minor word changes to make it flow a bit better in prose, but otherwise, the story has not been edited, mainly to preserve the "spur of the moment" mentality associated with its creation.
This poems tells a story about a man who gets taken to a land where the unicorns live.
I'm worried that an explanation ruins a haiku, so read the poem before you read this. Go on.---Okay? Have you read the poem first? Now you're allowed to read my winded shpiel.While studying Unicorns in the Man, Myth, and Magic encyclopedia, I came across the idea that alchemists would look for Hermes in the form of a unicorn to herald their success. The article linked Hermes to the unicorn's androgynity (having a female body but a male horn). After all, the appearance of Hermes during a successful experiment would mean being transformed into a being of spiritual "gold" without any bodily or social limits. This is my try at what an alchemist might say before being whisked off to perfection. It's from early 2009, by the way.
