Goblin Girls

Laura Peregrin

This is a goblin love story. It is written for my fiance, because it's his fault really - he dared me, said that there couldn't be a goblin love story. Well here it is...

Old Wounds of War

Dante Massey

This is a restart to the story I published earlier here. Its a tad bit darker in theme, but you will see some of the characters I introduced in the 'Untold Tale' make a return. I hope u like it. I think it needs some refining so criticism is definitely welcome. Enjoy!

Tears of the Holly

cryptarch

this is the result of a celtic calendar challenge from the illustrious Jenna Morgan . Enjoy a legend of the Holly. 'Come, traveller, step softly on the road. The green hills rise around you, grey in the gathering twilight. Can you hear the music in the mist, the fiddles and the flute? Tarry not on the highway. Turn your eyes away from those pale dancers by the water's edge, with their green silk ribbons. For if they catch you in their coils, 'twill be a year and day before you come home again. And only then if you pay their price... ...for your freedom, a tale....' Sit back, and hear the legend of the Holly Tree and the father of Vampires. p.s. This is officialy my first Mod's Choice. I was amazed, but am happy to finally have a golden feather of my very own!

The Bullet

Julian 'Llos' Greene

This one was nagging to be written for a while. Besides, I had been interested in writing a poem that was obviously suicidal, mayhaps to reflect that part of myself (Yes, I am prone to bouts of severe depression, with the oft though of suicide. I found reasons not to each time, though, as I'm still here).

The captive, Part 2

Tomas Lindahl

This is the second part of my short-story featuring the mysterious character Cort. (NOTE: edited to exclude wierd formatting issues)

Silver Inches

Lauren King

A woman seeks vengeance on her family, yet there may be someone out there looking for revenge on her...

Shin No Ippo

Brandon Christ

A lone warrior loses his family and many friends to a Power hungry tyrant. He has sworn vengeance and with his blessed sword, the 'Dragon Blade' he sets of to kill him...and anyone who stands in his way. PS: Von Dagga can be interpereted as 'Jeez,' or 'Holy Crap,' depending no the usage. You can usually put it into context anyway. I made up the word, so don't bother looking it up.

L'Histoire du Chevalier (ch 6)

Lynn Hodges

Chapter six - almost there. Here it is, the ever important confrontation chapter...

L'Histoire du Chevalier (ch 3)

Lynn Hodges

Chapter three. I want to add that this was my first attempt at a 'short story.' It was also the first piece I ever finished, which is actually quite a big deal. The title, L'Histoire du Chevalier is French for 'The Knight's Tale' which was the original title. However, given the French ancestry of both the knight in the story and my own husband, the translation seemed appropriate. This is for you, mon chevalier. It is chapter three of seven.

An Empath's Pain

Meagan Sears

This story isn't done yet, I wanted to get some feedback on it before I continued. Anyway, as to what this story is about... a village is attacked in the night and only one person survives the attack, a young boy who manages to exact his vengeance.

In the Candle's Spark

J. Schroeder

A poem comprised of two voices, each of which belongs to one half of a villainous couple.  The left-aligned sections belong to Cai, a magical being who gains power by taking the lives of others.  The indented sections belong to the sorceress Firaga (fans of the Final Fantasy series will notice the tribute and guess what her element of choice is ^_~), who has partnered with Cai in many evil deeds.  Note that they aren't actually meant to be speaking to one another--this is more what they are feeling as they are together in this moment.  Hopefully this works.  They are one of my favorite evil couples in my lore, and it was interesting putting part of their story down in this form.All comments and critiques are welcome, especially if you notice any slips in the meter.  Both my brain and my fingertips are numb from counting out the beats during revisions, and new eyes are always appreciated :)Note to Moderators: I reworked the piece a bit to show the magical nature of the two more within the body of the poem.  It's difficult as the piece is a dialogue of sorts, of course, but I think I've managed to give enough clues in this version.

Folly Prologue

Dwight Neilson
