On Vampires
Ah, yes. Vampires.  Like therianthropes... except nothing at all like them. Whereas therianthropes are more dictated by their current form than by anything else, vampires are controlled by nothing but themselves. Vampires are an odd bunch, really. Much like therianthropes, they are not necessarily evil.  However, they are, in general, highly solitary creatures, as opposed to the varying mentalities of therianthropes such as Lycanthropes and werebears.  This is not to say they are loners. Merely isolated by choice.  Many who meet them would call them genial. The usual feeling you get from a vampire depends on how they acted in life.  A good

Rest in Peace, You True Hero
Tragedy has struck, A hero has passed. A man whose deeds, Remain without a rival. Inspiration, He shall forever act as. Dedication, He immortally exemplified. Humility, Call him a paragon of it, But he would have denied it. Determination, In the face of danger, Not once, not twice, Not even thrice, But more than can be counted. A hero has passed, One of strong will, And yet of a gentle spirit, An arm always extended to help. An Eagle's majesty, A lion's courage, A fox's cunning, All with a hound's loyalty, His passing, It is a tragedy. But, let us not mourn him. Let us not feel sad. Let us celebrate him. Celebrate

Swashbuckling Gentleman Part Two
 Two weeks have passed, and Zelsri's clothes finally arrive, much to my disappointment.  A large quantity of them(explaining the great delay).  I had rather begun to enjoy this free show, but, alas, not all great things are to last. Save for her penchant for nudism, which I highly appreciate(and enjoy).  At least it is more comfortable for me to be wearing pants, now. I show her the sights around town.  While walking, we meet a friend of mine. "Osalnosor, how goes your life," Actrofin, a bemustached half-Bencorian-half-Belgos, says. "Hello, Actrofin.  I have been quite well," I say. "Well

Swashbuckling Gentleman Part One
I am walking through the forest, singing a powerful tune in my incredibly deep bass voice, carrying my inctricate, priceless cane, dressed in a suit, and wearing a monocle. A female grizzly bear ambushes me.  I must have, accidentaly, come too close to her cubs. "Oh, Sorry, Madame Bear," I do declare. She, however, does not relent. We stare at each other for thirty minutes.  We battle for twenty hours, honorably, with no clear victor.  She, out of respect, bows down and joins forces with me.  We walk to my house, and I sleep.   The next morning, I pull out a moose leg from my refrigerator

My actions may be outdated, and my ideals a bit old-fashioned, but you will be impressed and love me nonetheless. This is the credo of the gentleman adventurer. There are certain requirements; 1: Impressive Facial Hair 2: Bare-Knuckle boxing 3: Predilection with either big-game hunting or bull-fighting(or, better yet, both). 4: Eccentricity 5: Exuding manliness 6: Body hair that symbolizes said manliness 7: Capability to beat large animals with either melee weapons, or, better, your bare fists. 8: Your foes either respect you or cannot help but love you. 9: You must be cultured.  Well-read, well-educated, well-dr

I love her, Yet I think she hates me. All I want Is for her to be happy. Do her friends think, I am Dangerous? They say I scare her. Do my feelings form to fast? Or do they think I would hurt her? Why would I want to do that? I've been manipulated, torn, broken. Why would I do that, To the person I love most.

Levren's Quest Part 7
Two years have passed after that moment.  We have mastered shape-shifting and are ready to set off.  Genzi and Felnioz had two more kids.  Gelfor is now dating Lensi of the Delnos. "So, we have finished." "There is a tower fifty miles from town.  It is filled with evil beings." "You want us to take it over?" "Bingo!" "Can be done." "You guys will rendezvous with a raiding party. And Delgonquin the Werewolf will join you." "Can do." And, so, they set off on their journey. "Is that a band of an orcess, an ogre, a troll, a half-ogre, a half-orc, and goblin with a tool belt?" "Yes, it is." Delgonquin yells out, "You guys must be the ra

"So, my cousin.  You seem to have met Anzi, a duchess of your race. She is also know as the nymph among Argow.  Being raised by the nymphs, she has been bestowed upon the godly, magical, and natural beauties of the nymphs.  Of course, that is in addition to the fact that she is Argow Royalty." "Why are you here?" "I lost my father to the Exarchy.  I came here young.  Five years older than you." Three children run in.  Two of them are girls, and one is a boy. "Uncle Levren!" "Genzi and I fell in love.  We married five years ago in secret.  We plan to have a public ceremony soon.   Once we find my cousins, Felnos, King of the Elves, and Sp

"So, you were raised by nymphs.  I can tell." "How?" "You are the prettiest girl I have ever met or seen." "That's so sweet." "It's the truth." "Thanks."  She blushes.  Though, for an Argow, this turns you a dark purple. "Fen gos, Fel gel nefor."  (In this, I don't lie). "Bez nev nekov te?" (You really mean it?) "Os, cas gett bez nezzo." (Yes, more than you know.) She puts her head on his shoulder.  Now, they are both blushing. When they reach Lycawe, they are welcomed.  Argow are always welcomed in the city.  In fact, that is even what the greeter said.

Levren rode off on his horse. "Come on girl.  We need to..." Suddenly, an arrow whizzed past his head, barely missing. "Kos! Fel nes gi calne Argow Fenzz!"(Translation: Stop! I am the rightful Argow King!) "Is that you Levren?  My, have you grown in these thirteen years!" "To whom am I speaking?" A nymph walks out and says, "An old friend.  Come.  I have someone for you to meet." She leads him past a small pond, behind a waterfall, and into a grotto. "Hello, Levren. I am Anzi, a Duchess of the Argow.  I was sent here years ago." "We must catch up." "First, find..." "On the ledge above me.  Behind the third large rock from the left.

The Exarchy.  Just before it, the royal children of Ithalia were taken to safe havens, in prediction of what would happen, two years after Levren was born.  The kings were less fortunate. Our mothers and other female relatives were enslaved and raped.  Our fathers killed. Dalior, the King of Demons, was responsible.  His accomplice is known as the Exarchist. All the royalty was either imprisoned or executed. All, except for the Dark Elves. Traitorous bastards.  Same as always. Years passed.  Levren grew.  The children were sent to different places.  Thirteen years after the Exarchy, Levren was ready. "I must go.  I shall find the rest.

Levren's Quest: Prologue
The Argow are the result of experiments upon elves and hawks.  A prince happened to be there at the time to be affected.  With it, the bond between the Argow and birds of prey was born. The Argow were unusual in the fact that the prettiest women in the kingdom of the Argow race were allowed to, and usually did, marry into the royal family.  The royal family married nieces, aunts, cousins, double-cousins, or half-siblings.  They saw no wrong in doing so.

Vigilante's Trek to Costenla
We travel carefully.  Dofesc and his dogs watch guard.  The brothers are carving wood.  Destal is creating a bow.  Thescolf is carving a statue, for whatever reason.  Besral carves a ball, for whatever reason.  Celtas, however, is, by his very presence, keeping us from being attacked.  Rather unusually, in fact, we are joined by a family of poor farmers, looking for a new home.  They, however, are proud to announce they remain loyal to the king and the royal family, whom they know I am a member of. The family is eleven members strong.  Costor is the Father, and like me, is an illegitimate son of a king, but, of King Gosurn, my grandfather, i

Vigilante's Companions
Leaving my wife never is easy for either of us.  She holds my heart, my soul, my affection, my attention, my child. Still, I have friends to travel with, whom I've known for years. Besral, a blacksmith, and a very fine craftsman, as well as carpenter, gem-cutter, and platinum-smith, forged my blades.  He learned from the finest Dwarven, Elven, Human, Gnomish, and Argow blacksmiths, and it is obvious that he was a fine pupil. "Gesure, congrats on the child," he tells me.  Besral is in his early twenties. Destal, Besral's brother. is a top-notch craftsman in his own right.  Whereas his twin specializes in melee weapons and armour, Destal sp

Vigilante's Departure
"I ses tos casu no el kos nevos tokul," my wife, Inseli, says.  She is of a quiet beauty.  She is my muse, my love, my inspiration, my motivation.  She keeps me going when most would resign, quit, give up.  For that, I owe her infinitely more than I could ever repay.  Her words are: "You are always such a busy man, my darling."  She is always such a sweet woman.  That is why she is my spouse. "Es nakos bes nos nokul et mofure," I return, saying, "It's because I need to prepare for our new child."  She is with child, and that is an exciting experience, being a new father.  Never a dull moment.

For the record
A lot of my stories I wrote on here were written while I was in my teens. Not only was I full of angst, anxiety, and such, but I was still finding my place in the world. As such, they should not really be taken as representing my views at any particular point in time. I am very liberal. I do not judge, but I also don't advocate any sort of reprehensible sexual behavior. I will not take down my old works, but I do have parts of them I just feel don't work or just don't like about them. Please keep this in mind.

Where I've Been... And a new story...
Sorry, guys.  Been a bit distracted lately.  Got caught up in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (yes, I am a Brony). Anyway, my newest story is an MLP fic.  In fact, it is on my FiMFiction account at http://www.fimfiction.net/user/ICCUWAUSIMTOI.  Take a look, if you get the chance.  Also, viewer discretion is advised, as it is with all of my stories. Strangely, I have put more work into this story than I have with any other story that I have written.  If you like my sense of humor, be aware that it is in full force here, but utilized in a different way.  This story focuses much more on the romance and other such things.  But, I am going o

To any fellow TV Tropers... and to all others.
If anyone is willing to make a TV Tropes page for Swashbuckling Gentleman, I would very much appreciate it.  I have been very busy lately. In addition, if you guys find any interesting steampunk works or fantasy works, link me to them.  In addition, anything dealing with manliness and gentleman and high society is also appreciated.  Or science, military, and political intrigue. Or guns... you know what: Just link anything awesome you find to me.  If you see something cool on TV, especially on shows like Pawn Stars, Sons of Guns, American Pickers, etc, tell me about them in detail.  I want to hear it, and might just use it.  Anything interes

Hello,
I just wanted to ask you as Founder of the group Fantasy-Masters if you could handle the situation and help group? Folders in galleries are full - at least Featured and "Other style" - and it seems like Co-founders can't open new folder to member submissions even he can make a new one.
Thanks.
