Halloween Flight, a Short Story
It was the 31st of October and Brijeka was in the living room after a tiring day of school, playing with her little sister. The air was been warm and muggy which had made Brijeka sleepy. Between forcing herself to remain awake and listening to the excited chatter of her classmates who were eagerly discussing their plans for roaming the neighbourhood in search of sweets that evening, she took in very little school work. Instead Brijeka had wondered what it would be like to go ‘trick-or-treating’ with her few friends. Dressing up, walking around town and getting sweets, for free? Sounds like fun. Unfortunately, Brijeka’s parents did not approve of Halloween and ‘trick-or-treating’. It is American and therefore it is bad. Thus, while her classmates now prowled the streets with all the other kids from around the neighbourhood, Brijeka was stuck inside with her younger siblings.

Kidnapped! - Chapter 4
---Link to chapter 3---
It took Aikku a little over a week and a half to finally be able to copy out the Herufanian alphabet and each of their ten digits on her first attempt for the day without being slapped by Mingko. This was the first glimmer of happiness she had felt since arriving in Myzhurakun and it got a little bit better when she was finally able to remember the names of all the six kids in her class a week after that. In turn, they had finally stopped asking her pointlessly intrusive questions like when she was planning on having kids and what bra size she was, which was a welcome relief.
Each day Aikku looked for opportunities to escape and head north for the border but no matter where she went she was always under constant surveillance from someone else, be that Mingko, Hanpon, Jhongzun, one of her classmates or any of the other kids or staff living in The Institution for whatever reason. Even when she was alone in her room, Aikku felt t

If you've been following my work you will have seen me posting OC about my own world and may be wondering what different terms I use mean, where different places are, who different characters are and how they all link together. Well in this journal I shall try to give a brief introduction and explanation to various aspects of my world!

As it stands, all my fantasy creations take place on the same planet (known as Imoin by the Tenari though other cultures use different names) but may be in wildly different countries and in time periods from the world's ancient antiquity to points where their technology has advanced beyond our own.


Kyollyt is a region on the western edge of a rather large landmass generally known as Branakoyen and one might say that it is the world's 'Europe' although I disagree with such labeling since it generates preconceptions about the cultures that exist there (for example, I showed the map of Kyollyt to some people at university and they straight away pointed to one location and told me that it was obviously France when, as a matter of fact, the region in question is nothing like France). Kyollyt is largely made up of countries ruled by either humans or dwarves but there are numerous other bestial creatures, orcs, goblins, elves and demons who call the region home too. Humans in Kyollyt typically use 'RY' to denote the year. 'RY' stands for 'Reclamation Year' and counts the number of years since the majority of elves were forced to flee west across the ocean to their archipelago home. For example: 1660 RY denotes 1660 years since the expulsion of the elves.

Tenar is my second main region of focus currently. Although I have drawn preliminary maps of the area, I do not currently have a final one in the works. Regardless, Tenar is a large region that one may reach from Kyollyt by sailing west, past the elven lands and beyond. It is populated predominantly by Tenari humans who are ruled by an emperor who is believed to be immortal (well, he's lived for over a thousand years and has not died yet), however other sentient creatures live here as well. The Tenari are frequently antagonised by Lordrosian humans in south west, Samaarin humans in the north west and dwarves, orcs, undead, dark elves and others from most land borders and within. Elves sometimes make war on the Tenari from their homes in the east across the ocean as well. Capital is located at Khana.
Tenari use 'IY' to denote the year which stands for 'Imperial Year' with 0 IY being the year in which their emperor came to power. This occurred in -579 RY.

Khana by Brijeka Liberation! by Brijeka Tenari Peasant by Brijeka Tenari Legionnaire by Brijeka

A largely frozen land to the north east of Tenar inhabited by many human kingdoms who intermittently war among themselves or unite on occasion to war against their neighbours. Frequently harassed by dwarves and their draconic masters from the mountains of Senmat. A story based around modern Samaar can be found here: Kidnapped! - Chapter 1
A mountainous region in Samaar's east (directly north of Tenar) populated by a wide variety of monsters. Several dwarf kingdoms that have been taken over by dragons and their spawn exist here.
Peninsular to Tenar's north east. Occupied by dark elves, dwarves and a variety of monsters.
A wealthy empire to Tenar's south west. Predominantly a desert, most of the population lives in bountiful floodplains lying around the great river which flows through this region. Many Lordrosians rely on slaves for menial labor so that they may live a more decadent lifestyle.

Tempia is special in that it does not exist in my fantasy world, rather, it is a fictional country in our real world (Earth) located in the South Pacific. Tempian and Tenari culture are essentially interchangeable except for the fact that the Tenari version is fantastical in nature. Tempia has possessions across the Pacific and in South America (predominantly Patagonia).

Characters My 'Family' by Brijeka

Brijeka Brijeka (IN COLOUR) by Brijeka
The character of my namesake. Brijeka Vervix comes from northern Tempia and lives a relatively normal life based roughly off of my own life, particularly in high school. She has to deal with problems like bullying, growing up, parental pressure and doing well in school. She likes reading and mathematics but doesn't like talking to people very much (they make her nervous) and has only a couple of friends. Brijeka is also timeless and can appear at many points, past present and future or even in different worlds such as my fantasy planet (wherein she is a Tenari). Sometimes creates self-insert Harry Potter fanart and plays the recorder.

Lauren  Lauren by Brijeka
Lauren is an Esslian girl from Mercendon. Most of her family died when she was young and so ended up living on the streets until she tried picking the pocket of a travelling wizard named Tregorim. Tregorim decided to look after Lauren instead of punishing her and they traveled around Kyollyt for a while going on a number of adventures. One day, one of Tregorim's enemies had him assassinated so Lauren found herself on her own again. Now she travels Kyollyt and the wider world seeking vengeance on Tregorim's murders and also to bring down the rich and powerful whom she blames for her impoverished beginnings (largely for the lack of care they showed her).

Pjette is Brijeka's friend from TEK, a high school in northern Tempia. She is kind, loving, outgoing and enjoys swimming. Has a crush on Brijeka but Brijeka doesn't realise this. In elementary school, Pjette used to actually be friends with a girl who bullied Brijeka but as that bullying got worse and worse she began to realise it was wrong and so she left her old friend. Properly became friends with Brijeka in high school because they were the only kids from their elementary school in their class.
First seen here:  Brijeka and Pjette by Brijeka

A white haired girl from northern Tenar. Zoi lives in a very rural area and likes to ride her bike around the countryside searching for different plants which she catalogs in her journal, the first of which can be found here:  Zoi's Field Guide to Tenari Flora and Fauna Pt 1 by Brijeka 
Zoi is a staunch environmentalists and opposes anything that would harm the climate so much so that her classmates think she is liable to becoming an eco terrorist.

So there you have it. A basic introduction to my world. I will update this as I create more.


Brijeka's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art

Big fan of fantasy and sci-fi, in particular, creating my own worlds for stories and games.

Also love Harry Potter.

Please respect my OC. Having your creations used without your permission hurts (especially commercially) so if you want to use any names, characters etc... that I have created, please ask and if you're sharing elsewhere, please give credit! :) Having said that, if something I made inspires you to make your own OC, don't hold back! Just please don't use my creations without asking or giving credit. Thank you for understanding.

Feel free to watch if you want.
