The lesser races are mere pawns to be discarded and used. From their Kingdoms to their magic, they are allowed to exist for one purpose alone, to serve. But, to serve unwillingly breeds contempt, and with contempt comes war. It has been sixteen years since the last Allanian Revolution led by the Crimson Queen. Although defeated, her shadow continues to loom over the land and sea. Remira, the daughter of the Crimson Queen, has been kept hidden within the snow covered walls of Castle Everstone — until now.

After a plot derived from the Inaresh comes to fruition, Remira has found herself trapped into an arranged marriage with a monster. Desperate, afraid, and alone, Remira attempts an escape to the Ashensong, a land untouched by cruelty of the Inaresh, where she believes she can start her life over. Unwilling to jeopardize her freedom Remira is prepared to use every tool at her disposal to ensure she arrives safely or risks passing through the White Gate.

The Graveyard.

Original Action Fantasy Short Story Contemporary Female Lead Anti-Hero Lead Grimdark Profanity Gore Traumatising content Post Apocalyptic

                                                Here lie the souls of unborn stories. 

  These words are written upon a single, lonely tombstone, standing alone on a darkened hill. Around it lie ghostly pages, tattered and torn, yet untouchable. Their stories strain against the pages, their ink wriggles, waiting for someone to read it. To gaze upon what has been created, but never finished. Unborn. Unknown. 

 You approach, and bend down on the wet grass. By some magick, you are able to grasp the sheets and lift them to be read..

 

Authors note: The Graveyard is a collection of short stories, work i've started but never finished, and likely never will. Still, instead of hoarding them, i intend to show them anway, and maybe let people decide which ones i should continue. These were written over the course of my writing career, and as such, the quality varies. 

You have been warned.

Journal Of Wonders

Journal Of Wonders

Original Fantasy Short Story Magic High Fantasy

In travel, many strange lands are discovered, but even more, are forgotten. This journal was written to preserve their memory, and maybe start new ones.


Author: I disliked how stories will often have some kind of common thing in it, but in every story, it will be different. For example, The kobold. In some stories, it looks like a dog walking on its back legs. In others, it's a type of dragon. Both are completely different and yet they both share the name "Kobold", so with this journal, I'm hoping to separate and define these things clearly. To do this I'll, instead of using common names, I'll come up with new ones.

I'm hoping to get suggestions from comments and polls. I'm new to writing and would appreciate it if you pointed out my mistakes.
