  2. Fan-Fiction Without Knowing It?

    Iíve known for a long time what fan-fic is and what itís not. I know what channeling is too. And we know what plagiarism is all about. Fan-fiction is an honored tradition of carrying on a single book, series or saga with well-known and loved characters in a similar setting to the original. 50 Shades of Grey actually started out as Twilight fan-fiction, and then developed a life of its own. Channeling happens when youíve written something very similar to a book or story that has already been ...
  3. Portal v.s. Urban Fantasy--It's WAR!

    There really is no conflict between these two sub-genres. There is a difference, even if we're splitting hairs. Charles De Lint first described urban fantasy with his story Dreams Underfoot in the early 90s, making it a relatively new genre, in retrospect to the times. In short, urban fantasy brings the fantastical into the mundane world or into the contemporary setting. It's another dimension, another time and place, a different universe with it's own rules. The magical invades our world, ...

    New Friends


    The lava filled up faster than I expected, but it was also working in my favor. Once again, the plane floated on the lava like a ship and rose up the tunnel while grinding against the ceiling. Up, up and away it went, until we came to the opening. The ceiling began to crack as the plane was pushed harder and harder up against the ceiling from the rising lava. The ceiling refused ...

    Cyborg Benefits


    I take back everything I said about not hating being alive. Now, more than ever, I wished to die, after all, whats the point in living, what's the point of anything anymore. So what if I got to eat new foods, so I got to explore, it all meant nothing now. I couldn't go an hour outside the purple room without almost dying. Than there's the fact that everyone I knew was dead, ...

    The Mad Storm

    My body was being shredded by the harsh wind, I couldn't see a single thing in front of me and I wasn't alone.

    In the storm, I could hear things screeching past me and than something very light landed on my shoulder like a fly. I went to hit it off, but it felt like it was latched onto me, so I tried to pull it off. Quickly, I noticed this creature was not just latched onto me, ...
  7. So I wrote this story

    So I wrote this story based on a dream. I cannot post it here because it is too graphic, bordering on the forbidden pornographic writing. Not that it is a sex story really, but it does involve that, or the facts leading up to it, including the "sheet talk" if you know what that means. Is that even a phrase? Well, it is now. I'm not even sure if I can morally justify it. I mean it's Epicurean in nature. I'm a half ass Christian and it's Lent! Really, can this thing be justified. I like ...
