The Troublemaker
Darkness.  The darkness didn’t end like it did when she linked with a normal Book.  Instead, it continued to swirl about her, enveloping her in its velvet misery.  The only change she saw after a few minutes was a bright light way in the distance, like a window.  But she couldn’t move.  
She could barely breathe either.  And she blamed herself.  If she hadn’t been so curious, she could have been with Cyan right now, having adventures, not swimming in this pit of blackness all alone.  
After what seemed an eternity, a face appeared at the window.  It was familiar, but Tahnah’s befuddled mind couldn’t think exactly who it was.  She was growing sleepy and stupid.  The face moved away and another’s came into view.  A hand enveloped the window’s view...
Cyan linked back to Riven in a huff.  The Moiety had promised to look for Tahnah, but in the meantime, they had advised him to go ahea

Senseless Cities (What It Is)
Beyond my talent to create, that's what. T_T
The short version: The Phantom Tollbooth, given the psychological treatment of American McGee's Alice. :D Scroll to the bottom for a complete list of pictures, which I will update as I upload them.
The Lands Beyond were Milo's wonderland growing up - the happy place representing his loves and fears in life, where he retreats when life seems pointless to remind himself of his goals and interests - the fantasy reflecting his reality.
Milo grew up. So did the Lands Beyond.
Life has slowly driven it into him that there are things that ought to be more important to him, that a dreamer and a visionary is not well-enough adjusted to the world around him to live. And so he has slowly cut ties with the Lands for the sake of his own well-being - sacrificing his sense of wonder for socialisation, his sense of adventure for f

Naming Your Novel
*This is also helpful for other types of fiction and possibly even non-fiction.*
Note: How careful you have to be naming your novel depends heavily on if you are planning to sell it, and how you are planning to sell it. If you are an unknown who is self-publishing and you want a lot of people to read and buy your novel, you need to do extensive research on the market. This article only covers a few tips, and I am in no way a publishing expert. But, even if you don't plan on going mass-commercial, that doesn't mean you shouldn't spend some time deciding on a name for your labor of love and I hope this article provides some useful ideas.
Organized Brainstorming
Consider important items--does your story revolve around a magical staff, sword or pendant? For example: "The Staff of Alema," "The Sapphire Sword," or "The Destiny Pendant." (I know these are cheesy but you get the idea).
Consider who your protagonist IS--is it an assassin, a magician, an apprentice

Le Riven Fanfiction
The sun was rising over the island, its rays bright as they entered a small window in one of the round Rivenese huts by the lake.  They fell over the sleeping forms of two young people; one, a girl around fifteen with olive skin and a long, tangled mop of black hair and the other, a young boy around seventeen with ruffled blonde hair and pale skin.  The teens had rolled to different ends of the room, the boy drooling in his sleep and the girl cuddling a stuffed whark (a fish-like creature with large tusks).  
    As soon as the warmth of the sun touched the girl’s face, she sat up and yawned, blinking large, dark brown eyes in the sudden light.  After a moment of sitting there and attempting to fully wake up, she stood and walked to the other side of the room to wake the boy.  
    “Cyan!  Cyan!  Wake up!”
    All she got in response to this was a few incoherent murmurs and a moan.  Shaking her head

KaidokJ Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2018   Digital Artist

Thanks for the llama :happybounce:

I knew a llama once. At least I thought I knew him. I mean, how well can anyone really know anyone, much less a llama. With their air of mystery and thinly veiled contempt. It’s hard. But I digress.

His name was Kevin. But for reasons I will never understand, he would only ever answer to Albert. Identity issues aside, things started out okay. The usual introductory sniffing and sneezing went well, despite his allergies, but then things started going downhill during the ritual licking phase of the pleasantries. We pushed through. And had it not been for the spitting, we might have even been able to make it work, but alas, after just 3 seconds of bittersweet brotherhood, we finally decided to part ways. It’s kind of sad, when you think about it. Spitting seems like such an innocent thing to fight over, but he was pretty adamant that I should stop and that was just never going to happen. We might have overcome that issue, but Kevin, like all llamas, was very competitive. First came the stench competitions. Then it was belching contests. And lastly, a painstaking count to see which one was hairier. You can clearly see why our relationship was doomed. The poor fellow was a bit of a sore loser.

So he snuck out, taking with him a failed friendship, an obliviously optimistic dread of the future, and my sixth favorite toothbrush. Now that he is gone, I can honestly say, it's for the best. He was too much of a chick magnet anyway and who needs that drama? :shakefist:


Full disclaimer, as Kevin’s official biographer, a position of which he blackmailed me into (don’t ask), I’ve been instructed to inform you about his ongoing series. The journey starts here with The Kevin Chronicles - Chapter 1, and this gallery contains the rest. You should check it out. 

*End of cue card*


And don't worry, they're pretty short.
No pressure though, only if you want.

I think it was a thumbshare forum or I was just browsing. Your work really caught my eye :D (Big Grin)

Ah, I see! Someone must have shared my thumbnail then, cause I'm not on the forum. Cool! Thanks for letting me know.:aww:

A sad little update concerning my current situation on…

But don't worry, I'm still on Archive of Our Own. I've moved your amusing comment regarding Fickelgruber's yucky candy bars to AO3. It was too funny and I just had to keep it. 

I've changed my username, by the way - which means that I'll also switch DA accounts very soon. Just so that you know.

I just wish those online bullies would stop bothering me and let me write in peace.

Artoveli Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm really sorry to hear that you're having these troubles.:no:
Maybe as a preventative measure on AO3 you could cut back on reader interaction? I know it's hard, but I've seen it be an effective way to stop drama from spreading.

I wrote a funny comment about Fickelgruber's yucky candy bars? I don't remember!:XD: But I'm glad you liked it enough to move it over. ;P
