  1. Heyo Humans! Whalecome to Telrao's Adventures! This is (hopefully) going to be a miniseries about your favourite fluffy feline - Telrao! Adventures, mystery, fights, (romance maybe) this'll be great! (If I actually write it aha) If you would like some information on Therapy Cats (which is what Telrao is) look in the Spoiler below! Ahem, just to note, the first bit is going to be set in Elantris. So if you haven't read Elantris READ IT!!! Now, without further ado, the Prologue: PS: I will add more stuffs onto this later, so keep an eye out!

  3. Alright. So I'm just going to create a thread where I can throw either short stories or the beginnings to stories. I write a lot of beginnings to stories (you might have noticed) and never the ends. One day that will change. Constructive commentary 145% welcome. Book #1 Chapter 1 Chapter 2
  4. HAPPY SIXTEEN THOUSAND POSTS --uhh... me. Hrm. Anyhoo... welcome to my brand-new mini-story writing corner. Basically, this place is for anything on the shorter side that I happen to write. I have a number of short stories / novellas stuffed deep into my google drive that I'd honestly love to share with y'all, so I decided to make an entire scudding thread for them. I'm gonna kick things off with the story that got me into the TABC anthology: The Forest Guardian. It's a soft fantasy based on various cool spiritual thingses like Princess Mononoke. It clocks in at just under six thousand words, so it shouldn't take too long to read through.
  5. The concept for this is short story roleplay. I'll make a very short single quest idea, for instance, the first one is transporting a payload of silver across part of threnody. You come up with your player idea, something simple but dynamic without a large arc. I set up the plot and we start playing. When we're done with the first story, we go on to the next, each being very short. You could have a reoccurring character, or do a new one every time. Here's the basic summary of the plot, then a more in depth explanation: You have been hired! A small large shipment of silver is being transported from this very town to Boschester. It is expected to leave at the next Shaiday. Good fortune to you, and may the Shades never catch you, sincerely, Adonalsiumwillrememberourplighteventually If you want to join, just put a character roughly following this sheet, or a brief concept and name. Character Sheets for Story 1:
  6. All right, for my 2000th post, I'm going to finally publish my little project I've been working on for a while. Null's Reflections is a collection of stories that takes place in... the entire multiverse. Actually more than that. It's a multiverses of multiverses. Every possible world is fair game for these stories. I won't give too much away, obviously, but keep a look out for references, but also know that there's things from places there's no story equivalent of on Earth. There will be five arcs, with multiple short stories in them, and there might will definitely be other stories that aren't directly part of any of the arcs. I'd love any and all feedback. I've worked a long time on these characters and worlds. Won't you sit down and reflect a moment with me? Arc 1: Deadly Sins Enjoy, and make sure to let me know if it sucks or not It I don't post a new chapter for a couple weeks, please bug me to get started on the next one. I want to finish this, I just suck at motivating myself sometimes.

  8. I am currently writing a short story called "My Small Reality" and I need some help. the premise of the story is the character is the only thing really exists. he is the Alpha so to speak. But parts of his sub-conscious have become sentient as a result of a massive shift in his ideals. these broken of bits are slowly gaining more and more control over his reality. so I need ways to mess with his head and make him doubt reality. But I have no ideas about how to do this and really need some help.
  9. Hey All! Since these boards have come to be my favorite place to ask questions and get real responses from people who seem to care. I chose to come here to ask yet another overall question. Lately, I have been tearing through Novels at a searing rate. However, I find myself getting burnt out. To the point that Warbreaker took me three weeks to get through. And I fully expected to be through The Rithmatist by I think I need a respite. Something to re-energize my novel reading desire. So I was thinking that some short stories and Novelettes could satisfy me. I found Asimovs Science Fiction. Now I ask an age tired question "Is this magazine worth my time?" My two biggest things are 1. Quality. I want to be reading something good. Something that I will finish and think "that was worth my staring at paper for the last few hours". 2. Sex. I dont like sexuality in my books Warbreaker was about as much as I can stand in a book, Is Asimovs magazine presses that line often. I dont want it. So sound of as the 17th sharders so wonderfully do!
