Title: For Want of Magic
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1,160

Written for a member battle with Kat on Stories!  The challenge was to write an urban fantasy piece concerning thievery and involving a character who is afraid of confrontation.



“No magic?” she asked. Her voice hinted at sweetness and light, but it was flavored sharply with sarcasm. “You can’t begin to fathom what magic can do when properly harnessed.” )

Title: Trickster
Genre: Modern, hint of fantasy
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1,241

I wrote this for a Stories challenge. I wanted to do more with it, but I also didn't want it to get too long, so perhaps I'll expand on it later. It concerns the idea of the trickster god prevalent in so many cultures.

I wrote this for an RCR challenge (one I submitted) to write 13 paragraphs concerning superstition.

Title: Scheherezade
Genre: Fanfiction
Rating: PG
Word Count: ~ 2,000

For the Fifty Sentences challenge at RCR--this time I actually finished. I found a subject that worked. :) So it's the story of Scheherezade, with what may be a slightly different spin.

Scheherezade is a woman--she needs love like any other, especially when surrounded by a constant sense of fear. )

Title: History
Genre: Harry Potter
Rating: PG
Word Count: 2,045

Written for another RCR challenge--a character gets a chance to change a mistake they made in the past. I chose Dumbledore. The story is set just as Voldemort is beginning to gain real power. It is before Harry was born.

Ariana’s crumpled body lies on the floor of his mind, but the Time Turner in his hands could change her fate. )
karriezai: ([lolcat] light reading)
Title: Lydon's Decision
Genre: Fantasy - Eysuria
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 1,300

Written for a challenge at RCR, yet again. Getting some good writing inspired there! The idea was to have a character reflecting on a traumatic event and how it changed them. I interpreted this loosely. He is remembering a traumatic event and it has changed him, but the main point of the memories is to help him make an important decision.

He’d always been the better fighter when we were Whips, but I had practiced since then, and I did well. Still, it ended with my back against a wall and his knife sharp against my neck. )

Title: Through Agony and Ages
Genre: Fantasy - Eysuria
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 1,150

This is the would-be climax of my main Eysuria story arc between Aerlun, Daemien, and all their incarnations. It was written for a challenge for RCR; the challenge was to write about the one marriage in ten that doesn't end in divorce, that lasts forever (figuratively speaking). This is a slash story, first-person present-tense.

It hurts to see the blood on his skin, even now. I ache from my own wounds, from my own exhaustion, but despite the hatred I try to feel for him... I can’t. It hurts to see him so near to broken. I have to stop. )

Title: Fate
Genre: Fantasy
Rating: PG
Word Count: 450

Written for a writing challenge for RCR called "Stranger Than Fiction" in which someone finds out that he is only a character in a book. Mine's kinda depressing. Written in second person.

You can picture the life mapped out for you by your cosmic author. You will know hunger and disease. You will find great happiness for a short time, but then you will die young, killed by a drunk driver. )

I wrote for a challenge in [livejournal.com profile] the_dead_muse. The idea was to take a fairy tale and twist it all up. Mine is below. It feels good to finally have written something that doesn't get backspaced and redone until I just give up for a while. It's a pretty short little piece, but I like it well enough. It may be pretty rough, but I just wrote it between classes and posted it, no editing or anything like that.

Challenge Name: Twisted Tales

Title: For a Soul
Rating/Warnings: R for semi-explicit sexual content
Fairy Tale Used: The Little Mermaid
Word Count: 1,395

Note: I used Hans Christian Anderson's tale for most of the basis, but I did use the names Eric and Ariel because they're recognizable from the Disney film.

“Will you marry me?” he asked her, taking both her hands in his own. She kept nodding, and the light glow to her made him almost believe she might rise off the deck for joy. )
