    “I beg your pardon?” Mrs. Brausch asked the air, pushing down hard on her outstretched leg. The resistance was unexpected and completely unacceptable to her. “No,” the tiny voice called out. “You will most certainly NOT be...

  • An Awkward Meeting

    Opal Brausch sat quietly at her kitchen table. A kitchen which Mrs. Brausch never expected to step foot in ever again. It was dimly lit. Mrs. Brausch, not a woman to leave loose ends untied, had taken the precaution of having the services cut off in pr...

  • Challenge

    He appeared in the mist. Nothing was to be seen, only gray liquid-like mist. A first real challenge, huh? He felt a spirit about fifty meters behind him, but he did not feel good enough in this new realm yet. He was not used to hovering in the real wor...

  • The Stiff Wind

    It is so real. This constant awareness of my gut and all my innards bumping around, spinning, whirling, cartwheeling…dropping fast. It was flying. A dream of romance. A dream close enough to touch, close enough to believe. Close enough to breathe...

  • Hasty Preparations

  • The Flying Prince

    He soared through the air, weaving in and out of the white, cottonball clouds. He craved the wind in his hair, yearned for his stomach to jump just so when he leaned into a dive. He reveled in his acrobatic stylings as he floated over the ocean, streak...

  • What I Wish Would Happen (Part I)

    As I sit at the computer, typing away on the smooth black buttons on the keyboard, I hear a slight tapping on the door. It creaks open a little. I stop typing. “…Yes?” I have no idea who it is. “Rose?” My sister sometimes ...

  • Ben Makes The World Go Round

    Ben pushed the wheel, just as he always does, every day. Just like he has always done, every day, since the first day. Ben was there, when the world was born. First there was nothing, just darkness. Even he didn’t exist, there was just the darkness,...

  • What I Wish Would Happen (Part II: Jane Explains)

    Is this a dream? Did I fall asleep? I can’t help but wonder as she hangs up her jacket on the back of my door. “So,” I say, breaking the silence. “Why are you here? How are you?” I silently kick myself for sounding so awkw...

  • Woodland Fence

    Somehow it wasn’t quite right, this sagging fence. I hacked and hacked away at these posts and yet they sink into the ground in quite tasteful symmetry. This metal wiring is stretched taunt and stable all across the acre of land, surely it must k...

  • Cannelliare

    She sat quietly before the device. It seemed such a simple, unremarkable thing. A small copper-colored orb no larger than one of her hands balled into a fist. It hummed softly, almost contentedly, as the majeria began her work. She placed her hands gen...

  • Brotherly Love

    A light breeze drifted up the hill and danced lazily amongst the tall prairie grasses. It swept around the strong tree-like legs of Dao Haising as he stood in a defensive stance. It swirled around the spindly legs of his brother, Kae Haising, as he gri...

  • No-belong girl

    The girl sat down in the grass and licked some of the juice from her sticky fingers. Hunger had quickly won over caution and she had already sampled many of the variously colored berries that grew in the bushes around the clearing. She was just about t...

  • A Sweet Confection Investigation

    “Dear Mr Cavendish,” Niall said, his words coated in the same sort of sugary sweet veneer as the confections for which he was so well renowned. “How nice of you to —” “Do not speak, you pernicious freak,” Caven...

  • The Sihde Princess

    It is still raining when the Ash-Shayton clerics come for me. The light from my crown glows steady amber, casting shades of checkered light along the castle floor. They are puzzled by my appearance and they whisper among themselves for some time before...

  • The Light of Sihde

    He strikes me again and I fall to my knees. I rise when I remember my father’s words. “Even the darkest shadows cannot escape the light of Sihde!” The light from my crown penetrates the darkness and they fall back into the shadows. Th...

  • Zalfaqar (Mature)

    The priest stares at me with a vexing look, his tattooed face trembling with fury. As he motions for his minions to take me, a cloud of smoke pours from the temple gates and the temperature drops. He places his dagger against the woman’s neck and...

  • To Kill the Princess

    Zalfaqar raises his head and stares into the crowd and then he moves toward me in long, measured steps. The Sihde captives are hypnotized, moved beyond the fear of death. And then, over the loud whispers from the crowd, he raises a jeweled dagger and w...

  • Sihde Dragon

    I feel my entire body transform, and I grow taller and taller, until I’m looking down at the castle grounds from a towering height. I am transformed into a Sihde dragon. I gaze down in delight at my muscular body, knowing only a few Sihde have ev...

  • In the twilight between.

    The fields are dead and brown, the forests reduced the to blackened sculptures of ash, the ruins of the city worn down to nothing but the foundations. The world here is dying, my dreams are dying. She didn’t come for me tonight. She’s not h...

  • Tradion the Brave's Trusty Aide

    God help me. Not that god exists in this setting because the writer has some sort of non-denominational generic pantheon going on… you know what I mean. I just want more lines to speak. Is that so much? Most likely I’ll fall in the mud again- the l...
