  • “As fascinating as conversations regarding modern lands during the Middle Ages may be, we do have more important subjects in desperate need of discussing, do we not?” Rupert said.

    “Right, sorry,” Hermione said, blushing. “We really do need to focus at a time like this.”

    Rupert nodded and turned to Mercedes, Gabi, and Lia.

    Got it!

    _________________________________________________________________________________________

    Hermione’s brow knitted. “You said you were from Italy? Medieval Italy? What do you mean by that?”

    Lia and Gabi exchanged glances, unsure how to answer.

    When still no one spoke, Rupert cocked an eyebrow, trying his best not to grow…[Read more]

    This is sort of what I pictured Vee looking like, but she’s a slightly lighter shade of silver.

    OSIRIS

    Osiris stepped off of his spaceship’s boarding ramp and onto the Resilience, a gigantic star ship and the host of the Cullings.

    Here I am.

  • Hi, y’all! Sorry for disappearing, I was distracted by actually writing. XD Crazy, I know!

    Umm, I kinda forgot, can the characters actually kill each other, or is everyone immortal? Because Chantara definitely has some villainous schemes up her sleeves. Literally XD

    Ellie took the suggestion and fell right back to sleep. It was not comfortable sleeping on a pile of rocks, but anything would work after not getting sleep the night before from worrying about how she was going to work alongside her enemy.

  • “Hm.” Alessio glanced at Nithel, who backed a couple steps away from the werewolf. Was that something new for him like the mirror, the books and…his fire? He quickly dropped his gaze back to the gold wolf, wondering a little over it. A part of him was somewhat sad, he loved that Nithel wasn’t afraid to ask questions, but now probably wasn’t…[Read more]

    “Not long.” He replied, “Might as well go back to sleep. It doesn’t look like this storm will let up anytime soon, and we don’t know when we will be able to rest again.”

    Ok, so door. Right the door. The creepy door that’s creepy with a creepy idk on the other side that creepily sounds like my mom. Yeah. Creepy door.

    I totally (don’t) have a plan.

    Ok…ok…do I bar the door and trap myself in or play cool like everything totally fine and go in there to find a way to escape?

    She/it probably has a way in, every n…[Read more]

  • Meira huffed at him. Bad throwing. He was just infuriatingly snobbish! For several seconds she contemplated konking him on the head with the butt of her spear, not hard enough to really hurt just kinda knock his brains back in place. But instead she checked her grip again, flushing invisible with fury.
    Then the lights went out.
    She blinked, a very…[Read more]

    A crash of thunder woke her up. She jumped up in an instant. “Sorry, didn’t mean to fall asleep. How long was I out?”

  • Oooooo, that would make thins easier, wouldn’t it? It would take me  a while to get use to it too. I have a limited amount of screen time, and digital art isn’t at the top of my list, so I haven’t really tried a lot.

    I’m pretty sure that every book character has their moments where they need someone else to stop them and point out, “hey, ma…[Read more]

  • Farley heard a sound. She heard running water and something else moving around. the air was cool, it whispered through her fur and brushed her whiskers. Where was she? Her den was small and earthy, not open and breezy.

    She started awake, her eyes snapping open. Yesterday’s memories came to her in a rush and she shivered, though not from the…[Read more]

  • (Sorry for disappearing!!)

    —————————————

    There was a pause as Master Klein seemed to consider Riure’s question. “Yeah,” he finally said. “Its cool. Just whisper. Don’t be afraid to question each other’s plans. If everyone is thinking the same, no one is thinking.”

    Riure slumped in her chair as relief crackled through…[Read more]

  • Third person also is fine with me!

    I can write in the next week, but I will be out of town the week of the 13th (I always seem to go out of town when we’re writing, lol! I think it’s happened both summers).

    After that I can write as much as I am able. I have a super busy summer ahead of me, but that’s normal, 😀

    MELODY

  • Nithel had barely taken his eyes off Alessio as he was carried and as he laid in the bed. Nithel’s heart ached. Wanting to show him how much he was loved. We all make mistakes. 

    Alessio bolted upright, eyes wide, sparks flying out of his hands. Nithel looked that way and saw a young woman standing in the library in their line of sight. Her eyes…[Read more]

    Is quiet. Tick-a tick-a of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star in the background, in my head. Clit-clatter footsteps, soft wind, my heels are clit-clattering like glass. How I wonder what you are…Like a gauze of unreal I’m returning from class, is it? Papa will want to teach me guns, Mami will insist ‘lady’s work’ on me, try to convince me I like knit…[Read more]
