B-But...I liked your stories. They reminded me of dreams. ;9

And you almost wrote 3 short stories. ;_; I think you've still earned yourself a Pokemon for the effort, if you want one! B)

Its fine ^-^ I don't need anything.

Well, if you do change your mind, write away!
I loved your stories even if they are usually below the 1k word mark.
You make such WONDERFUL use of those words! ^^

Just letting you know in case you still had doubts. ;]

Sorry for double posting!

I finally made another entry for a Fantasy theme.
Hopefully it turned out ok.

Sorry for being a bit inactive here lately, folks! I promise I'll read the new 3 soon enough! B) Probably after I find something to eat for dinner. :p

I've edited the main post to include the following stories:

Grapple, an adventure tale by Bluntsword!
The Man in the Metal Room, Requim's first submitted story! So far, we need to pick a theme for this. I *think* it's part of the challenge. B)

If there's anything else I've forgotten in my absence of this thread, please let me know!

I might even try to write something myself soon.
...Sure. I keep SAYING that. ;_;

And I'm thinking hard on what to write next.
Particularly which theme.

I'm not sure. ;_; I miss M00s...

I've written several things that I haven't considered good enough to be posted here, but I might revise some and give them life. B) My writing has all but ended, but I'm certainly more nitpicky about it now. o.o

I am getting more nitpicky myself when it comes to the short stories.
Now I'm actively asking myself more if I CAN consider it a short story.
Some are not still...
But I'm getting better.
I hope. ^^'

My old public school teachers used to give us short story assignments, and I'd blow everyone out of the water with about a 5k entry. I got good grades, but if the limit was 2k like here then... Yeah. XD
But so many struggle with even reaching 2k.
So I just have to think short... Shorter...
Because oddly enough once everything is said and described with a few simple thoughts, it's already 2k for me. X_X

To be honest, I often have a problem with writing too much, too. ;9 I don't know why it's suddenly so easy for me to write very little. o.o

(Except when I'm writing school papers. Then I GLADLY write less. :V)

Aaaaaaaand, I've finally got back to posting one! After writing about 3 or 4 that never saw the light of day, I finally found a kid that may (or may not) be worthy of the pageant! The gritty pageant, that is. ;9

For fanciness, I made this title image into the link:



*edit* And with that, I've written 6 Short Stories and now get to pick a nonshiny rare! Woo hoo! Just letting you guys know for the record~ Gonna pick Mismagius :)

I'd be worried for the person that would think your work is trash.
I would pummel them as your backup. ;]

I think we all are improving.
This challenge has been the best thing for us, I think.  ;8

Yes, ... I think we should have a great deal of material for a compilation come the fall, assuming we keep up with the creativity at this level.

I have a wish list. I'd like to see yuyu, flame and Jules put out a little more product, because I genuinely enjoy that stuff. I'd like to see Bluntie allow us to use his entry for the elves of talgel- the one about the trolls, because that was just the mutts nuts. I'd like to see lord stark do more with his stories that did not include male strip bars, because his dialogue is intense stuff. And of course, Sophist MUST make more, if for no other reason because his writing is some of my favorite.

Oh yeah... And it would be really cool if Gracie the bitey came out of retirement.

As for me... I have some ideas in playing with.

I posted one more, but I've been on a bit of a break so far. ;_; Still, we have a lot of stuff out here and that's pretty impressive! o.o The Library has seen a peak! B)

Well, I'm quite happy to hear that, M00s. :3
And I'm glad to see you back!

I'll put on my thinking cap and come up with something! XD


Out of the entire forum, the Library is the best place in my opinion.
I'm glad it has gotten some very much needed attention. ^^

You certainly can use my troll story.

I'm nearly finished with the first draft of elves, so maybe a short story or two coming your way soon.

I'm actually working on part 3 of the continuing saga of Ed and Polly. I posted it quickly, hated it, took it down, and am now in the process of completely rewriting it.  The biggest reason it takes me so long to get anything out is that I won't post till I'm happy with it and that takes a while.  (Unless I am sleep deprived and post it too quick :mad:)   It's about half-way finished now. And may turn into four parts before it is done. And then I will post xD   After that I have an idea I've been kicking around for greed.


Also life... it gets in the way sometimes :mad:

But I am totally honored that you like my stories

I've still been thinking of what I want to write next that is a new idea entirely, but part of me wants to write another section related to The Blood Contract. It was just a fun time for me. XD

But I'm still thinking of what next to write.
I'm sure the others are, too, between busy lives. :3
