Memory by ~talkinggoat972
The introduction of this poem is really
captivating, and the thematics of dawn is really

through the conceit of memories. Beautiful.

FaithEach October I stand here
As fallen leaves damask
yellows and reds
In natural brilliance.
The heads of these stones
Stand above this sea of color.
It was October twenty years ago
When, in your stillness,
You were brought here
With box and grave faces.
The last I saw of you.
I have been faithful.
In the braced air I visit
Though I have no words.
I want to believe you are here
Want to believe
And each October I turn my

'It was nice to hear the inverse of my thoughts, again.' We both placed our drinks back down again on the table.
'How's the latte?' he asked, as he reached for it.
"Doppelganger" by ~Celareon
What would you do if your doppelganger lived
in the same universe as you? ~Celareon presents
a strange piece about this topic, cleverly playing
with ideas of mirroring.

Baronwars PreludeThere was water boiling over the fire and tea leaves floating on the frothy surface. The acrid smell woke me up and I lay there, feeling the dirt beneath me and hearing the hiss and pop of frying pork. The sounds of camp breaking were soothing. There, the jangle of metal, a clattering like rain on the door Wulfwyn was putting on her brigadine vest. And there, a shuffling like a wild boar in the underbrush Eric was stomping back into the campsite, most likely already affecting a foul mood. I smiled to myself and rolled out from under my wool cloak. It was damp with
"Baronwars Prelude" by ~fainting-goat
There is always an impulse in fantasy
flavored stories to open with a great action scene.
"Baronwars Prelude" shows that good action is secondary
to using the first words to build both character and world.
