Due to the fact that one of my stories was stolen, altered without my permission and used for a commercial venture I'm no longer updating my Wyverns Library. I had another story taken and placed on someone elses website with them taking credit for my work. It feels strange to say that after the length of time I've been here, but ahh well. I'm not leaving Elfwood though just none of my new writing will be here. I suppose it's just as well, anyway since a lot of my material is unsuitable for Elfwood nowadays. If you want to see the new stories, well you can always hold your breath and wait until I've finally got my own webpage up and running. Or failing that send me an email. I've two more Fen stories that I've finished (which are just the same silly nonsense as usual) and another longer story about a demon and an angel with a dash of humour and a splash of twisted romance. I love comments, as long as you're not just plugging your own page here. I love emails too though with 200+ spam messages every single day chances are your email might get eaten. I'm over on ICQ as well and I prefer it as a form of communication lately even though no one tends to talk to me there. :) Thank you Keri for sending me some of the stories I deleted. I'm still looking for my Fen stories, Piece of Paper and Faerie Nuff though. I'd greatly appreciate anyone who could forward me a copy of them. I love comments, however if you're gonna use my comments board to plug your own work could you please at least leave a comment on one of my stories first.

What is Magic?

What is magic? Well set in a modern day setting in a world that's exactly our own (almost). Well I snipped the real ending off of this since I wasn't sure if it fitted Wyverns, besides it just continues the story a bit more and I'm not sure if that's needed. Domi (short for Domino incidentally) will be back, he's one of those recurring characters of mine that pop up every where and he has a story of his own to tell.


A vampire story written on the spur of the moment. It seems all too vogue nowadays for vampires to be the good guys so well I wrote this.

Sleeping Beauty (Part 2)

This continues from Part 1 of Sleeping Beauty if you haven't read it then go back and do so. It's not meant to be funny like the first part but it follows on any way. This finishes where the fairytale finishes (my new update has just been stuck on the bottom) however I have a bad feeling that it's not the end.

First Day of Life

A ghost story if you must call it that, and well I just wanted to try and be a little different. The after life done Ground Hog Day style.

What is Love?

A ghost who wants to live, a young man who wants to die and an angelic being. A story of modern fantasy, and the second tale of Domi from Magic. Written after reading a couple of Wraith: The Oblivion source books. It needs a better title, this one was chosen because I couldn't think of anything better.

Werewolfs Tale

This is what I'd say is my first ever story I've written. Which of course it isn't but it's the first ever short story I wrote merely for pleasure and wasn't written in school. It's a background for a character of mine in Werewolf: The Apocalypse the role-playing game. I wanted a character who had depth and wasn't there to beat everything up. I wrote it three or four years ago, have attempted to remove the World of Darkness terminology but I can't say I've done it completely. Well read, and judge for yourself. The other side of the story, from Leith's point of view, is still being written, but may one day also see the light of day (if you pardon the pun).

Different Worlds (EDITED)

Worlds is the longest piece of fiction I've ever typed, and finally here it is edited. I took advice, reduced the amount of perspectives, fixed to the best of my abilities the shifting tenses and altered an awful lot. The plot remains the same as it was though. Any input would be greatly appreciated, especially about the shifting viewpoints and peoples opinions on if this is an improvement over the last version or not (don't worry if you haven't read the original please still look this over and comment) The world is one ruled by women with psychic powers, where it is the turn of males to be persecuted. A world where the prophecies foretell of a chosen one who will throw off the shackles of opression, a man with the powers of a woman who will bring about great changes. Here begins the tale... (which incidentally is continued in Other Worlds)

Fire and Ice

This was written for a play by email game that I created with Kim Nohr. Unfortunately things crashed and burned but I'm still fond of the characters The World's one ruled by Elves, with the rogues guild being one of the few groups not directly under their control. Lexi and Xandra (or Firefox and IceVixen as the code names they're under at the moment) are thieves in the guild. The past few months the elves have been using magical crystals to protect their property, finally they discover a way around it. This just one of their many adventures. Hopefully it will make sense, however in the way of posts to PBEM's it might not. Firefox is mine, Icevixen Kims, everything else is written between us.

Bone White, Blood Red

Well this is a gift to my friend Kim (go check out her work). She wanted a rewrite of Snow White, Rose Red so this is my attempt to do so. As you can guess from the title it's not a very 'happy' story.

All Worlds

This is Part 3 of Worlds. Read, comment, enjoy. (Please). Hopefully I'll get it edited by the end of this year. Part four is in the process of being written. Comment and it may happen faster.

Other Worlds

This is the companion story to Different Worlds, it stands on it's own quite happily, though is probably best read after you've read DW (which contains more in depth background information than this). For those who don't know, Other Worlds is a sci-fi story, based in a world where women rule, men are their pawns and the internet is sentient. Thanks very much to A for her constructive comments, and for proof-reading this. There are a few embarassing spelling mistakes (especially near the end) which I'll do my best to remove in my next upload (which should be next week) Hope you all enjoy.

A Game Fit For Gods

A silly bit of nonsense I wrote in a dull half-hour and for some peculiar reason people keep reading. I mixed religions and all but well, it's just my litle comment on roleplayers.

Twelve Dancing Princesses

Another fairytale remake. My favourite fairy story which until now I've cringed at the idea of rewriting since 12 princesses is a very daunting prospect to add to a short story. Well it was until I hit on the name idea (which hopefully should make them a little easier to remember) and the fact I didn't need to tell things from the Princesses point of view. So enter Prince Gary, long suffering brother, Twelve Dancing Princesses, one King, and one Soldier. Fourteen characters in such a short space? All I can say is never again. Well hope you enjoy anyway. Finally got round to doing an edit (11 January 2001).

Sleeping Beauty

A retelling of Sleeping Beauty, with a few twists. This part's meant to be humorous, the second part (which is finally up) is a little more serious. This stands quite happily on it's own, don't need to read on. Oh yeah and Aubrey; the fae from a few of my other stories rears his ugly (I mean gorgeous) head here.

Happy Ever Afters

This used to be A Modern Day Cinderella but finally I managed to upload the other two parts. The first part does still stand on it's own (in fact sometimes I prefer it that way) so feel free to miss out parts two and three. Part 1 is Cinderella brought to the present day. Part 2 is Goldilocks (same characters as Part 1 of course) brought forward two. Part 3 is Sleeping Beauty.
