Emilie Finn

Welcome to my library! I am 28, I've been writing stories since I was old enough to hold a pencil, and I've been making up fantasy stories for as long as I can remember. (Although when I was a kid they were called pretend games. *grin*) I am just beginning a new job teaching music and art and directing chapel at a small mission school on the Hopi Reservation in Arizona, so my writing/reading time online is limited. Expect sporadic updates to Mother Kat at least, though, and  I always  respond to comments. 

Mother Kat: Chapter 6

Sunday. Mother Kat preaches, and Gary throws a fit.

Appendix B: The Provinces

A brief sketch of the founding of Lauralia and the history of the different provinces thereof.

Lady Marin's Story

This story introduces a new set of characters from a coastal village in a country to the far west of Lauralia. I call it my Louisa May Alcott story, because it's written very much in a 19th century style. Part two is in my Other Works section. (Don't ask me why this one qualifies as fantasy and part two doesn't...)

Mother Kat: Chapter 4

Wyvern's Project 5, chapter four. More of Rob, Sarah and Gary.

The Academy: 2

The conclusion of Karen, Veronica, Lori, and Harry's eventful final year at the Academy.

Journal of Queen Laural

This fragment was found by King Hawkins of Lauralia, whose passion for finding and preserving history became widely known, both during and after his reign. He created the position of Royal Chronicler, which he awarded first to his scribe, Young Lord Elron of the Eastern Woods, only two years after his coronation as king.

Lilith

This story is my submission to James Bowers' The Project Six. Thanks and credit to Lindsey Butler, Lilith's co-creator!

Mother Kat: Chapter 1

Wyvern's Project 5, first chapter. Introducing Mother Kat and her world.

Mother Kat: Chapter 3

Wyvern's Project 5, chapter three. Introducing Gary, and one of Mother Kat's parishioners.

Mother Kat: Chapter 2

Wyvern's Project 5, chapter two. Rob, Sarah, and Paula.

The Academy: 1

The tale of four students in their last year at the Lauralian Teaching Academy. This story takes place about ten years before The Eve of Meladrin. Continued in installment two.

Mother Kat: Prologue

My contribution to Wyvern's Project 5. A rather ambitious story set in Eugene, OR some decades in the future. Let's hope my writing skills are up to this!

Parable

A parable. Credit to my sister for the idea. Also stands alone.

The Faithful

I meant to write a nice little short story for Christmas. Instead the Brats sprang into my head, and the entire town of Traderston took the story and ran with it! The result is a fairly complex look at the Lauralian resistance movement under Arcanian rule. Set before events in The Restoration. For my Godsibs.

The Eve of Meladrin: 1

An eventful evening for Princess Elizabeth of Lauralia

The Restoration: 1

This story scared me when I wrote it. What to do when your favorite heroine becomes the villan? The events take place twelve years after The Eve of Meladrin. Continued in installment 2.

The Faithful II

Continues the story of Zara, Johan and Glory and the Brats.

Snippet: Colin & Ellena

A snippet about Colin and Queen Ellena. This takes place some time after Wyvern's Project One.

Paradise

A fable. This story stands alone.

Snippet: Karen

A snippet containing bits of Karen's life before the events described in Wyvern's Project Two.

Snippet: Kryssa

A very brief look at one of the less savory sides of Lauralian society, from the point of view of one of the Lesser Servants of the Godde

Appendix A: Social Structure

For those interested, here is a brief sketch of the Lauralian social structure and system of education.

The Fall of the Elder

An ancient legend of Lauralia. It was an oral tradition for over 1000 years before it was finally written down for King Hawkins in 1113.

Appendix C: The Arcanian War

A brief description of the events leading to the death of Queen Ellena and exile of Princess Elizabeth.

The First Servant

Being one of the primary scriptures of the Servants of the Godde. Believed to have originated in the Woodland Provinces before they were part of the kingdom of Lauralia.

The Faithful III

The conclusion.

Snippet: Eya

This describes the beginning of the end of the exile of Queen Elizabeth II of Lauralia, some years before the events of Wyvern's Project Three.
