The Lost Head of Medusa

The Sword Above the Throne

"Alright," the king said, "You may have my power and my responsibilities for a day, starting right now." "R-Really?!" I said, leaping at the chance. "Yes," the king replied, "for the next 24 hours, you will be the ruler of this kingdom." And with that, I was ruler for a day. So, of course, the first thing that I did with my newfound power was to throw a giant party for me and my friends. *** "Your highness, please..." The voice faded as I drift back to sleep. "... up," the voice called out to me again, "Your highness, please wake up! The court is waiting for you!" I got up and glared at the servant. Feeling groggy from having barely slept, I angrily yelled at him, "Leave me be, or prepare to be punished!" "Y-Yes, your highness!" the scared servant hurriedly left the room. My head fell back onto the pillows again, and I began to drift- "Get up!" the king yelled. That woke me up fully. "Did you think that being the ruler meant that you could just lie in bed all day?!" the

Sita Calls for Mother Bhumi

Sita Calls for Mother Bhumi

For this story, we'll be looking at the tail-end of some versions of the Ramayana - when Sita finally meets Rama again, after spending years in exile with her sons. I watched as my sons finally met Rama, their father, for the first time. Their happy smiles and their happy chatter warmed my heart. I looked at Rama, my love, who I had not seen for many years. Our eyes met. For that brief moment, his face grimaced, before his eyes darted away from mine. And I could see all of the unspoken things on his mind. I would not be going back with him, and he would be taking my sons with him, back to his kingdom. All at once, I started to remember everything that had led up to this moment. I remembered falling in love with Rama, and marrying him. I remembered how Rama was exiled by his father, the previous king of Ayodhya - over some promise the previous king had made with his second wife. And I remembered how I had followed Rama into exile. It was during this exile that we came into

A Single Rose in a Field of Lavender

A Single Rose in a Field of Lavender

I walked through your beautiful field of lavender – as I had done, so many times before. As I walked, my hand reached out, lightly touching the tops of the lavender flowers. Finally, I reached it – your grave, your memorial. Admist the lavender, the glass case displaying your armour and your sword stood. Beneath that, lying on the ground, was a beautifully cut slab of stone memorializing you. And on that stone slab, was the epitaph that I had written for you, so long ago: 'Here rests the Knight of Lavender, for your love and devotion to the kingdom, may you find peace in this field of your flowers'. “Hey,” I said to you, even though I was never sure if you could hear me or not, “here I am again.” I knelt down, and placed my hand on the stone. As the winds swept through the field, and carried the scent of lavender into me, I remembered… us. I remembered the adventures that we've had together, and the battles that we've fought together. And, above all else, I remembered how you

Heracles Bargains For Prometheus

Heracles Bargains For Prometheus

Another scream of agony pierced the air. As I climbed, the screams continued, echoing throughout the mountains. Pausing for a moment, I sighed. It was going to be a long and arduous climb. *** Several days later, as I neared my destination, the screams started again. Soon, I reached the source of the screams - the Titan Prometheus, chained to the mountain, screaming in agony as the eagle pecked into him and ate his liver again. This was Prometheus's daily punishment, as decreed by Zeus, for the crime of bringing fire to us, humans. I drew my bow, and fired an arrow - easily killing the eagle. Breathing heavily, the Titan managed to speak to me, "Thank you, Heracles." "But, what of your father, Zeus?" Prometheus continued, "He will-" Thunder and lightning interrupted Prometheus. Clouds began to form above us, and the almighty Zeus appeared above the clouds, towering over us. "What is the meaning of this?!" Zeus's voice bellowed throughout the mountains. Zeus looked down

Mordred at Camlann

Mordred at Camlann

I looked at my father - the great King Arthur. The father that has never once addressed me as 'son', and only ever as 'Sir Mordred'. The father that has never shown me any love. Was it because of the prophecies that foretold the doom that my mere existence would bring to Camelot? Was it because he was too busy being the perfect king? Or was it simply because I was the product of accidental incest, the result of a tryst between him and my mother, his half-sister? Alas, whatever the reason was, it was too late. I had already betrayed my father, and seized his kingdom. And here, at Camlann, we fought our last battle, surrounded by dead knights. My father's lance pierced through me. "Father..." I looked down at lance. "So," I said, "I wasn't even worthy enough to be slain by Excalibur..." I looked up at my father's face. And I saw them - those uncaring eyes, as if I was just any other knight that he had slain. I screamed, as the rage burned inside of me. "That will be your

"'THE woman'?" I scoffed as I tossed aside Dr. Watson's latest work. "What's wrong, my dear?" my husband asked, as he walked into our sitting room. "Oh, nothing of significance," I replied, "Apparently, after I had defeated him in our little game of wits, Sherlock Holmes has apparently bestowed upon me the title of 'THE woman' - as if I was somehow the best of my sex merely by besting him." Godfrey chuckled as he took a seat beside me on our sofa, "Ah, yes, that drivel." "You've read it?" I asked. "Yes, some colleagues of mine had passed it around today at the office," he replied, "They all had a good laugh at my expense about that unple

The Great Sage, the Equal to Heaven

How dare they? How dare they mock me, Sun Wukong, the Monkey King?! I had clawed my way from nothing to become a god, and, still, they dared to mock me?! *** Born from a magic stone atop of Mount Huaguo, I had no family or friends. Still, I proved my worth to the rest of the monkeys on the mountain by climbing up a waterfall and finding its source. They proclaimed me their king, and I took my throne. *** Needing to protect my followers, I searched high and low for weapons. My search took me to the oceans, where the Dragon King guarded several powerful weapons. As the Dragon King was not using them, I decided that I should put them t
