Elven Wanderer

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Rondel Linder

This wandering elven maiden is the result of my recent venture into oekaki. She's the second oekaki I'd done, before I figured out what all of the controls did, and she took me about 10 hours (minus some time for Family Reading Time), and I can still see many imperfections in the piece, but there are also a number of details about it that I like a lot. In particular, the 'gold embroidery' around the edge of her skirt and top (both of which are intended to be sheer silk, making it clear that apparently in this world elves are built like barbie dolls... ...oops...), the background hills, and some of the details of the staff with what are supposed to be translucent silk ribbons blowing in the wind. I'd love your opinions, but please be kind about the fuzzy edges - as I said, I was still learning the basic operations of the tool.

Lady of Ice and Lord of Fire

This piece was originally written for another purpose, but I keep being tempted to turn it into a story about a romance involving a wolf-lord, possibly a shapechanger, possibly from a magically-bonded tribe, and an elven ice maiden who becomes his queen.

Gonna Leave

This is a science fiction ballad (music available, but I can't include it here without a link, which would compromise the Elfwood way of doing things, which I don't wish to do) that is sort of a mixture of The High Crusade with the Dorsai, and a lot of classical revenge legends.

In the Eye of the Beholder

A short story of true love and the lengths people will go to prove it. Severe pun advisory.

The Hot Tub War

Do you ever get tired of stories about wars that are happening for no apparent reason, or at least not one that makes sense to you? Remember, in the end, all wars are about resources - who has them, and who doesn't, as you'll soon see...
