Time Travel is Not a Toy

Ryan Brent Van Cleve

This is just an example of why i took the batteries out of my time machine and put them to better use in my Game Boy.

To Return

Peter Blair

My contribution to Herscher Project 19 (a very last minute affair for me, I joined tHP about a week before the project deadline). This one proved to be a challenge. The pictures I were given by our fearless leader, Jim Bowers, were much darker than I cared to write about. I gave my character an interesting sense of humour in order to lighten the mood. Special thanks to Malin M. Larsson of tHP for a wonderful title (my original really stank)!

Charles Trowbridge

This is one of the stories i wrote in 'advanced' short story last year at school. It isent my best, but with the prompt i was given, i did what i could. The prompt, by the way, was the first sentence. Hope you like this one. This is acculy the second ending, when i wrote it before i dident like the end, so i changed it.....but i am not totally happy with it either. I'd like feedback on the structure and ending espically.

Who Am I?

Daniel Lix

Tach is a youth with a tortured past. He was orphaned as a child and taken in by a human family, and raised a such. The only thing different about him is the crystal embedded in his forehead -- though his parents sought to cover that up by disguising it as a headband. Nevertheless, he's always been different, his body host to four other beings beside himself, each one representing a specific element.

The Talented (Part II)

Eleanor Wilkins

(This is continuing on from The Talented) This bit is one of those moving-ever-onwards parts of a story, which is why nothing really happens. I'll edit this part when I've written more.

The War Machine -- Section 1

Brittany Zayas

This is Section 1 of a 3-Section story that was originally meant to be a short story. It was inspired by a line in Stephen Crane's 'The Red Badge of Courage', where he describes the War as a machine that spits out dead men. That got my sick mind thinking, and this is the product of the thought. It's mostly a 'dark future' sort of story that takes place in a Factory, and focuses on a Worker named Mi'an who is fascinated/sickened by the War Machine, an actual Machine that men enter in hopes of being a hero, then fall out dead ten seconds later. It's not technically an anti-war story, but someone could take it that way I guess. It really isn't any sort of political thing...There is a point I'm trying to get across however, and if one reads the entire story, one will probably see it. (I hope it isn't too violent for Elfwood.)
