Alistair's Problem
    Alistair wasn’t always a vampire, that doesn’t mean he was a good person though. He once murdered a man in cold blood. Alistair did regret it afterward but thought it had to be done in that moment. He lived by the code of doing what is right even if it requires him to break rules. He was defending himself and killed the man so that it wouldn’t happen again. Killing a man is against all rules and laws but it was right in the moment, at least in Alistair’s eyes.
    Alistair strongly believes in the tenets of the Old Faith which surprised many people he meets because he was so young. He was the tallest of his siblings, only being shorter than his father. Alistair wasn’t anything special to look at but he certainly wasn’t ugly. In fact, he was rather average in appearance. He was a person who had many friends from all different walks of life who were all very kind to him.

Gladiator
    It was my time, I had a long career behind me. I think to myself as I am grabbed at my shoulder by my opponent. He is coming in for the finishing blow, he raises his sword arm and lowers the sword down toward my neck point first. I feel the blade slip through my flesh and then a warm liquid, my blood, runs down my chest. I can feel myself growing weaker by the second, then everything goes black. I want to scream out but if I do, I will be forever remembered as weak.
    It all began about twenty years ago when I was fifteen. My family sold me because they needed money for something, I don’t remember now. I was taken from my family and put into training to become a gladiator by my now owner. This wasn’t the life I wanted for myself. I wanted to live a full life and get a good education at some point to help my family out, that all came crashing down when I was sold. The training lasted a few months and then I was told that I would be fighting. I was v

Commission Advertisement!
I have hidden the commissions for maps and lightning edited pictures because I don't have Photoshop anymore and I have decided to focus on improving my writing. My short story commissions are now 100 points, down from 110. If you think it would be better to lower the price more, let me know. I do put a lot of work into my stories if I can get into them. Just in case the commission thing is confusing: What I need from you for the short story is the characters and the setting. If you wish to have the setting be in the world of The Beginning, I would be glad to do that and you would just have to pick the location for the story to start from the map. I would prefer if the location is in one of the named places on the map. That includes anywhere that has a name except Aqqos because that is the name of the world itself.
My stories can work as birthday gifts as well. I'm currently writing a short story for a friend who just had a birthday. This story takes place in Aqqos (The Beginning) and i

Chapter Nine of The Beginning
                      Aloeus
    “Elianor!” Aloeus yells, “Come here! I need to ask you something.”
    Elianor barges into the room, “What did you need?”
    “Before I tell you, I’ll give you some information. The king’s Justiciar, Kismi Lancker, died and the king is looking for a replacement.”
    “And you want to be the replacement?”
    “Spot on! Of course I want to be the replacement. I hope the position is still available though.”
    “Why do you say that?”
    “Look at when this scroll was written. It says it was written about eleven days ago. This means the other lords could already be in Dalry after the position. If we want to live in the capital, we must leave as soon as possible.”
    “I’ll go get what I need and pack it up.

   "Honey!" Lycidas' wife, Ambra shouts.
    Lycidas comes running down the stairs of Rockmane castle to the common room, "What is it?" He asks excitedly.
    "It's not exciting, the king's Justiciar died and he's looking for a replacement."
    "Oh, well I really don't think the Justiciar position is for me. I'm not a leader type person."
    "So you don't want to go to Dalry for the position?"
    "Look at when that scroll was sent. It was sent last week. There's no doubt all the other lords are on their way to Dalry for the position already."
    "So you don't even want to try for the position? You could be the one to get it."
    "I'm sure I don't want to try, it's not my type of work."

Chapter Seven of The Beginning
                            Tebaeus
    “The King’s Justiciar has died,” Cecelya Melandri tells her husband Tebaeus carefully, “he died of natural causes and the King is looking for a replacement. You most likely want to be the replacement, don’t you?”
    “Actually,” Tebaeus starts, “now that ye mention it, I do wish to be the replacement Justiciar. After all, it is a position of great political power.”
    “So shall we set off for Dalry?”
    “Yes, we shall, we should take the shortest route there. We will cross the Baphs river near Feldhahn Castle and then the Pruwem river to get to Dalry. We must get there ‘fore the other candidates.”

Prologue of The Beginning
                      Prologue
    “Aeldit,” Kismi Lancker summoned gravelly, “come here.”
    “I’m coming!” He heard her shout.
    Aeldit arrived at Kismi’s bedside and sat in a chair next to the bed. She appeared to be very sullen. Kismi had a sickly gray complexion, he was dying of Tuberculosis. Not even the doctors in Dalry could figure out what was happening to him or why he was dying. Aeldit noticed when she arrived that Kismi had some spots of blood in his white beard.
    “Aeldit, I think I’m dying.”
    “Don’t you say that Kismi!”
    “Tell the children I love them and will see them again someday. I will see them again in Auldang, make sure they know that.”
    “No! You can’t die now; you have so much more to live for.”

Chapter Six of The Beginning

    “Why have the gods done this to me?” Aeldit cries out, “Why did they have to take Kismi from me so soon?”
    Kismi is lying on a table being shown before his burial as tradition holds. His wife, Aeldit is crying with her head on his cold, lifeless chest. He has a Biquiso pair covering his eyes. The belief is that placing a Biquiso pair on the deceased’s eyes provided them with wealth in the gods’ realm. The Biquiso is the currency of Aqqos, it is provided and made by the bank in Dalry. The Biquiso is a coin made of bronze with the seal of the Dalry Bank on one side and the Noble Seal on the other.

Commissions

Short Stories!

I have been writing a lot more and I am offering short story commissions that are worth 100 points. All I need from you is characters and setting. I will attempt to work my "magic" and write you a story to the best of my ability. It will be influenced by the music I listen to while writing. Writing is something that I love doing. Currently, I am writing a short story for a friend whose birthday was last Friday. If you want the short story to be about you and a friend or anything like that, I will gladly do it for you. Stories will be completed in 2-3 days since school is out soon and I have a PC now. Above are two examples of my short stories but if you want some longer examples, I'd recommend taking a look at Appocalypse or The Beginning. These short stories will not be to the level of The Beginning or Appocalypse but they could end up somewhere around 10 pages. If you want a story to take place in the world of The Beginning, I can do that as well. For that, I will need the location of where you want the story to start. The map for The Beginning is also included in this widget if you want to take a look at that for reference.


Some things I can't or won't write are romance and things of the like. Mostly because I can't even read it, it makes me uncomfortable.

I'm back for my second year at college and I've been hella busy (I'll never use "hella" again). I was looking at things I've submitted here and realized that the last chapter of The Beginning I posted was chapter 9. I'm on chapter 23 or something like that now. Most of it is on Wattpad but even then, not all of it is on there. Most of the book so far is just on my PC and in Dropbox. I also recently made the pages 6x9 and double spaced so there's over 160 pages to The Beginning. It's getting closer to novel-length!
