The Pale Woman

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

The Pale Woman, false prophet and wicked counterpart to one of my absolute favorite literary characters ever, Robin Hobb's character of the Fool. 'She was white, as the Fool was once white, and her hair floated unbound around her shoulders. Her eyes were colorless, as the Fool's had been when he was a boy. Her face was his, softened into a woman's countenance. Her beauty was unearthly, cool as the ice that surrounded her She looked down at us, held on out knees before her, and appeared neither pleased nor surprised.' ~Robin Hobb, 'Fool's Fate'. I took a LOT of artistic liberties with her throne, but I like it anyway.

A Light in the Shadows

Another story I wrote about a character of mine, Shadow. *Music that added to this piece: Smashing Pumpkins' 'The End is the Beginning is the End' and 'The Beginning is the End is the Beginning' from the Batman and Robin Soundtrack*

Secret Angel

This one will be rather long, probably a novel by the time I get done. (I'm not joking either). Which is odd, especially since most of my stories are rather short. This one is based on a dream I had, actually. It's also a rather strange story... Well, enjoy! *Music I listened to while writing this: Depeche Mode's 'Violator' album*

I Want to Live a Fairy Tale

A short poem about the things every little girl dreams of.
