You know that moment when you realize you’re in over your head?
“I am steeped in blood so far, that returning would be as tedious as going ahead.”

Stories

  1. Becoming Sophia (12)

    “You have two arms don’t you? Do your own damned hair!” I shouted angrily at them. Cristyne gaped at me, her brows furrowed in affront. Margarete stood before me, she was taller than I was and her furious eyes burned down into my skul...

  2. Becoming Sophia (11)

    After many days of brushing her hair, I did it without being asked anymore. When Cristyne noticed this, she whined that I never brushed her hair, so I conceded to also do hers. After weeks of this, it just became another part of my day, another one of ...

  3. Becoming Sophia (10)

    Margarete eventually did end up marrying one of the lesser French socialites, Jaques Henri Maudit IV, who ended up gambling away a good portion of his family’s money. When they lost their house, both of them came back to live in the Lennon estate...

  4. Becoming Sophia (9)

    For many months after my father’s death, Adelind was very cold to me. Her daughters, save Elsebeth, had never been quite so friendly, but they took their mother’s new distaste as freedom to make my life miserable. Margarete’s seventee...

  5. Becoming Sophia (8)

    I will never forget that Dark Day. The day when the skies that rolled over my head became polluted with looming thunderclouds. Adelind stood next to him while I knelt by the edge of the bed. Margarete, Cristyne and Elsebeth stood awkwardly behind us. &...

  6. Becoming Sophia (7)

    In November of 1632, my father became bedridden. Newly wedded to Adelind, I couldn’t help but feel pity for both of them. I could see the love in the kind carresses they shared when they believed no one was looking, but I could also see the pain....

  7. Becoming Sophia (6)

    As time passed, I watched Adelind and my father fall in love. It was slightly disconcerting as I was not really sure how to deal with such a scandalous development, but I was happy because my father was happy. Adelind and her daughters joined our Sunda...

  8. Becoming Sophia (5)

    I gave them rooms on the second floor. In houses of wealth, it is well known that servants’ quarters are on the first floor, temporary guests stay on the second and the owners of the house live above. The turrets are reserved for storage, of cour...

  9. Becoming Sophia (4)

    Adelind was a beautiful woman, even I couldn’t deny that. Her German features were unmistakable and strikingly radiant. She had long blonde hair that she had passed onto the two older daughters, I noted, the youngest was unfortunate enough to hav...

  10. Becoming Sophia (3)

    When my father first fell ill, I took it upon myself to hire a stay in nurse. Help was hard to find however, even for a family as well off as mine, and I eventually settled for a nurse with three daughters who would have to come along. I didn’t l...

  11. Becoming Sophia (2)

    It was rather discomforting to understand that I killed my mother coming out of her, but since I never really knew the woman and I still had my dad, I can’t say I felt such a large loss. My father filled any void my mother could have left and I t...

  12. Becoming Sophia (1)

    This tale begins three hundred seventy-seven years ago, but it does not start with Sophia D’Soleil, oh no. Back then, I was not Sophia D’Soleil. Back then, all those years ago, my name was Marina, Marina Lennon, but thanks to my three wonde...

  13. Becoming Sophia D'Soleil (legend challenge)

    There was a time in my life when the sky seemed blue and the clouds seemed whiter. There was a time when buildings were made of brick and mortar and human sweat and people bought milk from the farmer because he was the one with the cow. There was a tim...

  14. I Know You're Listening [invisible challenge]

    Insa Nihtee sat in his room and picked at his toenails. “I know you’re listening,” he said out loud even though anyone passing by could have told him there was no one there. “Too bad no one would believe you.” “SHUT ...

  15. Ecstatic [ficly challenge] (Mature)

  16. Hero(in) *poison challenge

    After years of bobbing on restless seas of chemo untherapy, They finally pulled me back to shore. Smiling, they shot me up filled my arms with long needles and put me up on the white horse. After years of bobbing on restless seas heaving up all my insi...

  17. Morals

    I couldn’t sleep that night. Every time I closed my eyes I saw the faerie’s wings, I heard his screams and I could smell the awful stench of the burning flesh of those once beautiful wings…his wings. “Why did they do that?”...

  18. Punishment

    “Sarrihe optistelos!” Mamu whispered to me and I squeezed my eyes shut. I heard the sounds of a ritual for summoning fire and smelled burning oak. I wrinkled my nose at the smell. I didn’t like fire, I couldn’t control it yet. N...

  19. Lo Gaikan

    A big man with a funny looking nose got up and talked. He spoke in the tongue of ancient fey instead of the progressive fey so I couldn’t really understand. He said gaikan a lot though and another word too that I learned from one of my friends. D...

  20. Caositia

    I sat properly to try and keep Mamu pleased. She was talking to the other grown ladies of the Court in a hushed voice and she looked real worried and it made me nervous. Why should she be upset? I tugged on her sleeve for attention. “Why are you ...

  21. The Court of Winged Fey (children's story)

    “San telanik du—Do not fidget,” Mamu told me as we walked into the courtroom. “It is unbecoming of a winged faerie.” “But my wings aren’t fully growed yet!” I said. Mamu slapped me and told me not to use ...

  22. Celeb-reality (profile an author)

    “Oh my god, it’s them!” a girl screamed as she saw them approaching. Might Joe Young and Eloquent Mess worked the carpet in front of them, reaching out to the people to give autographs and such. One fan burst into tears when Joe winke...

  23. The Magic Pocket (ficlychallenge)

    “Did you check your pocket?” “Oh, don’t insult me! Don’t you think I would know if my keys were in my own pocket!” “Not that pocket, the Magic Pocket.” “What?” “The Magic Pocket. It̵...

  24. Who Knows?

    Kat drove us back to her car, told me “Chin up, someday you’ll live again,” and left. Now I sit in our kitchen while Moose eats his dinner and I stare at the only picture of her I never locked away. I don’t know if Heaven exists...

  25. The Cliffs

    “Come on,” the Kat sitting across from me said finally. She seemed to realize I wasn’t going to say anything more. “I have something I want to show you before I take you home. We gotta go now though or we’ll miss it.”...

  26. One Wish

    My coffee had long since been finished and the sun was setting outside, but I was still sitting at the same table in the coffee shop with the other Kat. She had made me start about my Kat and now I couldn’t stop. It was like a floodgate that had ...

  27. And Then She Was Gone

    I talked on and on about Kat and our life together and the Kat in front of me just sat and listened. As I talked my tears subsided and my eyes dried up. I sipped my coffee and kept going on about Kat; her beauty, her laugh, her smile, the way she liked...

  28. But Then She Got Sick

    “Yeah.” “What was she sick with?” “Cancer. Leukemia.” “Oh.” “Yeah. She was such a strong person. I thought for sure she would make it. She had this spirit that made you believe things like that. It ...

  29. Remembering

    “What happened to her?” I don’t answer her at first. I don’t want to say it, but she just keeps staring at me, waiting for me to answer. “She…she’s…” I stammer like an idiotic little kid. “She...

  30. Coffee with Kat

    She goes and puts that red bar thingy across her steering wheel so no one will steal it while I climb into the passenger seat. I wanna kick myself because I’m still crying, but I don’t think my legs would bend that way. She gets into the ca...
