Ailsa Joy

I've been writing for way too long in an unknown hobbit-hole of England. I love writing and reading anything you throw at me and not only that, but I like acting too. There, my list of talents ends. I guess all you really need to know is that I'm a 15 year old obsessive who adores writing. ^^ September: I think I lost a couple of stories since the last downtime in Elfwood but will hopefully be uploading some more in the near future! Lidia Klara Kuhivchak For beautiful, original artwork by a very kind, talented artist. Trust me, happiness is soon to follow. Brittany Jane Valentina Dulaj A master of language incorporated into beautiful stories. You will not want to miss these on any account! Nicki C. Markides A fantastic friend and awe-inspiring artist. Really wonderful person so please check out her beautiful work. Logan M. Giannini A brilliant writer and great friend; his work is just astounding, you can't fail to love it.

Lieutenant Arc Ch. 5

Helen tries to find her place in the world, well, as near as the world ever got when Wallowing was built.

Lieutenant Arc Ch.4

At the Guild of Decency, where Helen dips into the world of those who have gained a certain reputation in Wallowing. Thus completes another installment of chapters.

Shaded Beliefs

Legends evolve over time. There is always an element of truth.

Author's Confession 5

White-out. Effacers Corps. Stillness. And the last chapter of Lord of the Flies.

All the Stars

A song I wrote when it seemed I was lost in darkness.

Author's Confession 4

Ten minutes later. Decisions. The real world. *Click*...

Lieutenant Arc Ch.3

Helen makes an important decision in her quest to return to normal existance, if perhaps not the right one. And she also makes an interesting discovery.

Author's Confession 3

Roast dinner. Emotions. A terrible fax. A lonely stage.

Lieutenant Arc, Ch.1

(supposed blurb) The soldiers are starting to finally come home from the War. And whereas most are going home to live out the rest of their days in peace with family and friends, Lieutenant Helen Arc finds herself in Wallowing— and no one really wants to wake up in Wallowing in any circumstances. She wants to try and lead the normal life and forget that anything else ever was. But in her attempts to fit in, she finds herself gravitating towards GOD, a useless musketeer on a search for human decency, a bookshop owner and his dreamy apprentice and a band of thieves whose technology seems to be far and beyond anything she has ever met before. And suddenly, life in Wallowing is about to turn into anything but the comfortable life. Take a seat in The Forgetful Ostrich; pull your hat down, don’t you dare lose your coat, put down the menu, ignore the fellow singing in the corner and read on. The Lieutenant is not a patient woman.

Lieutenant Arc, Ch.2

The introduction of the well-meaning Narked and his master, Oxford and perhaps the return of a familiar face. I may leave these two chapters up for now to see the response before posting anything else, but if you've got this far, then I'm hugely grateful to you and thank you for taking the time to read 'Lieutenant Arc'.

King's Watching

I've always been fascinated with Arthurian legend and this short story is merely one of my 'excavations', if you like, into the time that proceeded the King's death.

The Sable Fields

Strange lands are often cursed to remain unseen so not to taint our eyes...

Hero's Enemy

What goes through the mind of a 'bad guy' at the very beginning?

The Knights

A game of knighthood- just gratuitous fluff fantasy.

Lieutenant Arc Ch. 6

GOD's first real mission and it's absolutely Heavenly...

Lieutenant Arc, Ch. 7

The meeting of two remarkable minds for the sake of half a dozen mediocre.

The Creator's Hobby

Based on the African myths about creation. They use a lot of repetition, humour and simple language, which I love :D This was hugely enjoyable to write.

Not Really

People like to believe in better places with better things, but so many others do not feel the same

Come out of the Cold

Lost in the wilderness, unsure of what is real, who is with you and who is not.

There is Just So Far

Another story on the observation of authors and this peculiar work they do. I have to confess, I'm a sucker for combining both writing and acting- I wonder if many others find that the two end up merging into one another? This is merely an interpretation. I would love to hear what other people's ideas concerning both acting and writing- you may see them as intrinsically opposite!

Ekplêktos and Dei

An interpretation of Theseus and the Minotaur in honour of my friend Logan's birthday. The title means 'Terror-stricken and Fated'. Why did Theseus make the choices he did?

Hero

What goes through the hero's mind at the beginning?

Dancing in the Words

A book is more than simply words and binding. It is so much more.

Lieutenant Arc, Ch. 8

An accepted invitation and a polite refusal; one which reveals the real pirates in Wallowing.

Cold Hands and Sunrise

She has not seen the battle's end before. Now she witnesses in all it's colourless desolation. Inspired by Wilfred Owen's poem 'Dulce et Decorum est' and the lines... '...My friend, you would not tell with such high zest 'To children ardent for some desperate glory, The old lie: Dulce et decorum est Pro patria mori'

Author's Confession 1

This is a short story in five parts that I am quite fond of. But if you don't fancy slogging through all this, there is a teaser about it here- http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/17402726/ A muffed line. Rain. The start of things to come. Silence. A fax.

Author's Despair

Oh the fearful thing that is writer's block. Thank goodness for muses and Chris. (I am so honoured at this Mod's Choice, thank you so much everyone ^^ !)

Ordinary Thoughts

Appearances can be deceiving.

Lieutenant Arc Ch. 5

Helen tries to find her place in the world, well, as near as the world ever got when Wallowing was built.

Sleeping

My 'evil' take on Sleeping Beauty.

Author's Confession 2

This is a short story in five parts that I am quite fond of. But if you don't fancy slogging through all this, there is a teaser about it here- http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/17402726/ Extras. King Cole's advice. Lying. Daughter.

Lieutenant Arc Ch. 6

GOD's first real mission and it's absolutely Heavenly...
