I came up with this story and I hope you like it. I am a huge fan of mythology, especially Greek mythology. I am also a fan of the Percy Jackson and the Olympian books. I thought I would try to write something along the lines of the books. So I hope you like it, please post comments and give suggestions!


I have never felt the same, the same as anyone else in this world. My life, somehow, has been different... I live in Maine, in a small town on the coast, with just my mother to keep me company. Our house, I guess you could say is small, it has one floor with one bathroom, a small living room...

I take out
what I always keep in my pocket:
my picture of
Mother,
Father,
and Violet.
It’s been folded
so many times that
white creases have formed

and

the middle.
Not to mention it’s faded.

I’m not surprised.
It is almost
100 years old.

But the people in the picture

are always the same.
Father is on the
left side
with his arm around Mother’s shoulders.
Mother is on the    right side     
and has her hands on
each of Violet’s shoulders.
Mother’s hair is    
m e s s y
and Father looks like
he needs a shave.
Violet doesn’t look
at
all
good as well.
You’re probably wondering
why I’m not in this photo
considering it is
my family.
Here’s the thing:

I wrote this about ten years ago. It's the first poem of a four part series.

Spring Maiden

A new dawn rises
clear skies all around
the birds chirp and sing
for the birth of the first day of spring

The sun shines brightly
upon fresh green leaves
wild flowers bloom in the woods
as different kinds of blossom awaken
upon the new branches of the trees

In the south is a river
the breeze is warm and at it's best
silver waterfalls shimmer in the sunlight
pixies, dwarfs and nymphs come out to cause mischief
before their beloved spring ends

Deep in the woods
within the flower beds
lies a beautiful faery
with golden hair...

Once upon the ocean blue
came a story just for you
'bout the bloody buccaneers
who sailed the Main in yesteryears.

There was peg-leg Cap'n Flatt,
swashed his buckle -- tipped his hat,
hair and beard were all in curls,
he was loved by all the girls.
Then we have dear Bos'n Brown,
known as "Killer" in the town,
Brown was bald and small and lean,
and he was known for being mean.
The Cap'n's crew was boisterous,
"A pirate's life is fine with us!"
They took to fighting happily,
pillaging upon the sea.
"Yo ho ho and a bloody sword,
we're going to steal the good King's horde,
we'll sack his crews -- sink his ships,...

I wrote this about ten years ago. This was written last and I struggled with inspiration. I originally based it on the negative effects caused by the sun resulting in hospitalised sunstroke. That took a horrific direction. Since then I have edited it a little. It's not perfect but it's better than it was. I don't have the energy to rewrite the whole thing. So I'm sorry if it's bad compared to others, which I enjoyed writing. I tried.


Summer Maiden

Dawn awakens

fresh air breezes are blown away

a bright sun emerges

creating a fine summer's day


The divine siren

of the hottest sun

laughs down at everyone...

Hi there everyone!

I'm a writer and I'd love some international support for my fantasy story that I already gave to my favorite actor Colin Morgan personally as a gift. He inspired me for a certain character and it was given more as a sign of gratitude for the inspiration rather than for him to read it. No idea if he ever would, but I just hope the effort I put into translating it just for him made him happy that day. What a brilliant actor ^^ Anyways - I've created a club and this account itself for communicating with future readers. I don't want to bother anyone with it, but how else could...

Chapter 1 : Ochre Mausoleum
"Aku sudah memperkuat perlindungan terhadap Aura Medals,tetapi aku tidak tahu apakah masih ada kehidupan manusia untuk 3000 tahun yang akan datang",kata Glaze Ice Grandeur-dewi es dan lapisan kaca-,suaranya sedikit lirih dengan wajah yang dingin.
"Jangan sampai para Blasphemy Magician merebutnya",ujar Glorious Blitz-dewa guntur- menimpali.
Di sudut timur ruang White Glisten Cavern-Gua putih tempat mereka tinggal,jauh,jauh di atas langit- Goddess of Virtue tersenyum mendengar perkataan dewa guntur,
Winter Maiden

She walks in the night
while the crows are flying high
each one looks at her
staring into her eyes

She came from the north
where icy wind never sets
her lips are blue
her eyes sparkle
like the moon in the west

She walks in the winter
in the mountains at night
she cries frozen tears
that haven't been blessed yet.

She could kill you instantly
with her frozen breath
she is the Winter maiden
the daughter of death.

She has hair as white as snow
with silver eyes
staring at the ocean
as winter dies.

She's never seen in spring
because she can't see in the light
in the spring her hair melts
and her eyes shatter in fright.
Autumn Maiden

One day in Summer
a girl walks by
she is a princess by day
she is a maiden by night.

Her hair is red
red as the fire of Autumn leaves
gold in the sunbeams.

She is a beautiful maiden
her heart is as good as gold
she is a fair witch
whose magic never gets old.

She is an enchanted season
her soul is golden red
just like the autumn leaves
that fall onto the flower beds.

She dances in fire
For her fiery nature cannot be burned
she maybe a good person but does have a short temper.

She is a serious person
who will not be teased
if you put pressure on her
the fiery inferno temper will be unleashed.

She wears...

I was inspired by teddybear64's list of magical creaures, so I decided to make one of my own.

I love magic and magical creatures because everything is always so different. Magic is amazing because it shows how differently the world thinks. Some believe in faries, others believe in dragons. I believe in all of it, I want it to be real.

I made this list to show my favorite creatures. I like writing about fantasy, so these are mostly creatures I use.

Magic is love! I love using my imagination to create new worlds. The feeling is amazing!

Feel free to use any of the pictures:)
I found them on Google!

There is a tradition in the Nabéshima family (of the Hizen daimyo) that, many years ago, the Prince of Hizen was bewitched and cursed by a cat that had been kept by one of his retainers. This prince had in his house a lady of rare beauty, called O Toyo: amongst all his ladies she was the favourite, and there was none who could rival her charms and accomplishments. One day the Prince went out into the garden with O Toyo, and remained enjoying the fragrance of the flowers until sunset, when they returned to the palace, never noticing that they were being followed by a large cat. Having parted...

Miguel stood before the mirror and tried to see why he did not look okay to himself today. He tried more hair gel for his spikes. Still not right. His braces shined in the sunlight just rising above the horizon almost blinding him. "Stupid sunlight..." he whispered. It rose, but it was still very cold outside. Freezing even. A chill ran down his back and he whispered to the person that he felt was watching him, "I can feel you, your warmth. I know your there." He smiled...
