Here you will find the writings of twenty-year-old Laura Skylie Engler, a strange little creature with her head in the clouds and Pointe shoes on her feet. Yes, that is her to the right, beside her obsession, Elftown, of which she is proudly the Master of Statistics. If you have not checked out Elftown yet, and you are a clever and interesting person with a lot of things to say, get your butt in there.
While there are some pieces here that I'm particularly proud of (Weekly Evauation is still a favourite, and this new one, Swing, is somehing else), everything else is pretty simple, rudimentary, or still in the sketchy stages, but you're quite free to enjoy/hate them all. I would greatly appriciate comments, especially if they focus mainly on content, plot, and character, and not so much my pathetic attempts to spell.
Update Message: I might have finally broken the spell that bound me from working on Serpent in a Cage, and the first possible prologue in years is available for the reading. I desperately need feedback, so please check it out. I also have editted The Truth and Lies of a Body in the Snow, taking in all the suggestions of the excellent readers who graced me with comments.
Just a note, The Truth and Lies of a Body in the Snow recieved Moderator's Choice one lovely, blissful day, but has since been editted. The file replacement got rid of my star, but I just wanted to let you know that there's a good change of you liking that one because of that and that I'm proud to have recieved special recognition for it although it might not note so anymore.

I've now read all of your stories and I really enjoyed them! I like your writing style a lot and your poems are wonderful. Have you read any Mercedes Lacky? I think you have a similar style and since she's my favorite author that is supposed to be a compliment! Keep it up and I hope you update these stories soon or I may go nuts from trying to guess what's going to happen next!

*shakes head in amazement* i can't believe this! Your people seem to make your scenes more real... My scenes always seem like cardboard backdrops to me. I think you may have answered my plea for an idea for a sequil, too! Thanks!

Skylie, my friend (you will always be Skylie to me), I have read a few of your works, and I admittedly am jealous of your two pronged attack. Able to use the hands of an artist, and the voice of a poet. What the he** are you doing to me? I am humbled by your skillful use of words to transport the reader to another realm and make them feel as though they are there. Unable to leave because you have locked the door and thrown away the key. They are subject to your beck and call until you have chosen the time for their release. Freedom of speech is hindered by the ability to convey the thoughts and feelings of the subject's mind into words. You have no such shackles. If you are ever published you would be my favorite author. Cheers, and I will be back to further comment.
By the way, first comment dance for myself. Never been to Wyvern till now.

Hi! I found you via Erik's suggestion about swapping comments in the Elftown writing forum. I must say, I have enjoyed very much the three pieces I've read from your library (The Audience and the two Merciless pieces). I tried to leave comments that were as well-rounded as possible! *grin* I have to go actually do my job now (I'm at work) but I will be back for more!

Ah, your writing is magnificient, sweetheart. I love it, I really do. I only wish I could comment better on stories and poetry!
|5 Mar 2004|| Sarah Hudson|
And hopefully I will find time soon to read your new stuff! I always enjoyed reading your stories.

Thanxs for getting promision to use my name.. Laura Skylie Engler
replies: "No problem. Thanks for being aware of a phenomenom called "coinincidence." But no time for that right now; I've got to go be stupid about people using the name "Laura" in any of their stories now."
