Okay. I need help naming the races in my story. As you'll see, they're all some type of fey...but it's hard to classify one as a fairy and one an elf, really, when there are multiple types that could fit each description. So help me, if you like fantastical races, please!

Here we go... )

These are the names I'm considering: Fae, Fairy, Pixie, Sorcerer/Sorceress, Wizard/Witch, Elf, Troll, Dwarf, Gnome, Sprite, Succubus/Incubus, Mermaid/Merman, Sídhe, Kobold, Dryad, Nymph, Drow, Duergar, Dwarf, Goblin, Gremlin, Demon, Devil, Hobgoblin, Huldra, Imp, Leprechaun, Nix, Ondine/Undine, Psotnik, Radande, Sylph, Troll, Elemental, Genie/Jinn/Djinn, and, last but not least, Changeling.

Any other names that fit? Which names do you think go with which creatures? Any creatures that aren't here that you'd like to see? Any creatures you'd like to see blended?
So...just my thoughts/ramblings on a certain muse. Also a fairly good example of my essay style, for those curious.

He's fucked up. )
In a steampunkish setting, except...not. In the dream there was futuristic technology, but also magic and medieval, coexisting. But, there was also a technologically advanced society that wanted to take over, and take the magic for their own research. We (my society/kingdom - small, but fairly powerful because of our importance) held the last of the recorded magic, and the last of the old wizards, who were dying hastily. Up in the top of the castle, squires raced to record the spells that they knew, while down below, there was a battle.

We had the most powerful spellbook in the history of the planet, the most powerful wand, and the most powerful spellcasters. All other magic had been wiped out by greed and technology. People gave up magic and gods for heavy, electronic armor that messed with any magic they tried to cast, and eventually robots. Our prophecies all stopped at this moment in time. No one could see past it. The fate of the world and magic rested on the shoulders of I, and a young boy, who fought with magic while trying to keep the book and wand safe, and our army, who fought with swords and shields against heavy duty electronic lizards, mounted by half cyborg men.

I cast my first spell, severing a man in half, and as I watched the sparks die down...I woke up. I never got to know if we won.

Needless to say...I want to write the rest of/beginning of this story. But. I want to know if this has been done before/something close, so I know how to change it. Help/Don't write a book off your dream you'll turn into S. Meyer?

So, warming up for [livejournal.com profile] thebrenljidol I wrote a poem. Hehe!

The Song Of Silence )

I'm going to make this short so I don't spam you too bad. This place is awesome. It's got people of all skill levels, and it's tons of fun. They're in their second season, and last season was great. Even if you can't commit to a competition (you get a week to write something to a prompt, no limits or minimums, every week, and you do get two skips) you can be a "Random Writer" and respond to prompts whenever you want. It's fair, easy, and made especially out of frustrations with other competition communities.

Have I ever recommended something before? Hmm? No. So I must really like this place right? Right. Go check it out. You only have one week to get in for this season, so be quick too. I know I have some writers on my friend's list.

I see you
Sittin’ right there
At a desk pretty close to me

And I think that
You see me
But you’re hidin’ behind your hair

You don't need to be afraid/I see you too.. )

Rain )

Always Raining )

Dreams )

And yes, I like rain, why do you ask? :D


Okay, anyone who knows Weiss Kreuz will probably get this to a painful degree. Anyone who doesn't will think it's just a bitter-sweet song. Hehe. It's actually a bit darker than that, but we'll just go with that for the faint of heart. Anyway, yes, inspired by Weiss Kreuz and is very much Aya/Ran. Let's go with PG-13 for dark imaging and suggested incest. Oops, did I really say that? Oh well. Also, if you can catch the slashy line in there, you get kudos.  If you can guess just WHO the slashy line is about, you get EXTRA kudos. And yes, it is 1:30 in the morning here. It was stuck in my mind, give me a break

The Memory of the Rose )
It’s been a while since I've posted any writing, but I had these two short pieces that needed some fame. The first, "Bottle of Dreams" was done under the prompt "Write about an invented thing, 500 words." The second, "Mariana" is under the prompt "Write about an invented person, 500 words.“ Well, it started out as a person, and it really is about a person, just not the one you think. With this one I was really trying to "paint a picture", no pun intended. I hope you like them!

Ta-ta for now!

I look at you, moon, once more
I won't see you again for a day
I'll miss you as I dream and snore
I wish there was another way
