THE ADVENTURES OF PETER GRAY Chapter 2 (Preview)
Below is the second chapter excerpt of "The Adventures of Peter Gray". For those unaware, it follows a wolf urchin living on the streets of Manhattan in the year 1899, and the friendship he forms with a human family while getting involved in shenanigans and historical figures from New York City's historic past. It is a historical coming-of-age fantasy with comedy, human/furry rivalry and drama mixed with (you guessed it) adventure for general audiences.

“Whoa!” I froze in my tracks.
So did Lance. “Do ya’ see that?” he asked.
Beside the carriage stood two creatures I thought I’d never see. Both had the skin color of a pig, yet walked on two straight legs. Their muzzles were squished flat, and they had small, stubby ears covered by wool hats. They wore coats and gloves, probably made out of wool from feral sheep. One looked older and the other was me and Lance’s age. They both carried bulky luggage cases while a large puma in a thick co

I hate having olives in my soup.
There, I said it. Nurse Whitley, if you’re reading this while going through my possessions again, do me a favor and stop serving that dreadful vegetable. I don’t care that the home wants me to stay healthy; at least keep olives away from any of my served meals. Especially my afternoon soups, alright?
Thank you.

Interviewing Peter: The Adventures of Peter Gray
*With "The Adventures of Peter Gray" coming out this April, I've decided to conduct an interview with its titular protagonist. In an empty area of 19th Century Central Park, Peter and I are seated across from each other with the young wolf eagerly fidgeting in his seat*
Me: So, I hope you're as excited for this as I am, Peter?
Peter: Ohoho, ya' bet I am, Nathan! Ask away. I'm an open book!
Me: Literally?
Peter: *laughs* Good one.
Me: Tell me about yourself then.
Peter: *gives a wide grin* My name's Peter Gray, and I'm a street urchin living in New York City--specifically Manhattan, beautiful city, it is.
Me: Were you born in New York City, or did you make your way there?
Peter: *looks left and right before leaning forward* Will what I say count as spoilers for your upcoming book?
Me: *shakes head* Go ahead and tell our dear audience.
Peter: Okay! *sits back up and smiles* When I was born, my parents left me at an orphanage in New Jersey. Can't remember much about where it was o

The sad truth is no one dreams anymore, not like we used to. Once upon a time, we fought to create the impossible, but no longer. It’s pitiful the more one thinks about it. One millennium, we colonized continents and discovered how to harness electric currents. Go forward to the next thousand years, and here we are.
“Mikaela,” a voice emanated from my earpiece, “finish up on that current one and head back down. The next shift’ll be here soon to do the rest of your sector.”
Here I am, running diagnostics on one of the many PODs I’m assigned to before being allowed to clock out for the night. Was it still daylight? Nobody could tell in such a window-less, claustrophobic structure.
“Mikaela?”
My eyes widened, and I shook my hair away to touch my earpiece. “Yes sir! Sorry, sir!” I nodded hastily, finishing the final touches on the POD’s full analysis. “There we are. Now sleep tight.” I chuckled at my

Invisible in the Twilight - A Villanelle (updated)
"Invisible in the Twilight"
By: Domus Vocis
The cities we build that shine too bright
Cause the stars to become so shy.
Will diamonds be visible in the night?
Stars remain invisible in the twilight,
And beyond the forests now lie
The cities we build that shine too bright.
From the mountainous forests out of sight,
To the skies unclean by man’s goodbye,
Will diamonds be visible in the night?
Why is the countryside untouched by this blight?
As we stare at other shiny things and vie
For the cities we build that shine too bright.
Venture out beyond the moonlight,
And marvel at the wonders in the sky.
Will diamonds be visible in the night?
Leave your dwellings now and depart tonight
To empty cities or desolate fields of rye,
In the cities we build that shine too bright,
Will diamonds be visible in the night?

Ode to the Future
Ode to the Future
Oh future, how amazing you always seem to be!
A distant phantom we can never seize
Made of shining gadgets and a floating city,
That bring our imagination to its knees!
Across warring nations and battlefields away.
You’ll never be beyond our hopeful view.
From yesteryear’s tomorrow to yesterday’s today,
You are as infinite as the oceans’ blue.
Oh future, you help us achieve impossible deeds
Through hardship and darkening horizons.
Carrying remarkable visions and creeds,
We march onward as the past wizens!
Oh future, we are conductors of your choirs!
No matter the numerous chains limiting you
Today, you will always arrive by our desires
For a better world that shines anew.

"You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you." -Ray Bradbury

Hello~! <3 I'm Domus Vocis, and I am a proud furry writer. Ever since middle and high school, writing fiction has been my calling like a wolf's howl. As I wrote more and took inspiration from fellow authors in and out of the fandom, my love for writing and this fandom has grown over the years. And during those years, I came up with three rules for becoming a more skilled writer.

1) Never wait to write; just write.
2) Don't copy or steal, but be original.
3) Don't let others define what you should and shouldn't write.

Outside of this, I mostly write science fiction, young adult, and contemporary fiction, dabbling on occasion with different genres. I love to binge anime I like, read books and spend my time surviving college exams.

If you enjoy my work, please consider pre-ordering my upcoming debut novel, "The Adventures of Peter Gray" a historical coming-of-age fantasy that'll make you laugh and melt your furry heart! :) If you're interested in pre-orders, follow the link here: writtendreams.com/store/#!/PRE…

On a small side note, I should mention all my stories and OC's are © to me alone. If you wish to borrow any of them, just ask. If not, follow the Three Rules and make your own =) Trust me; a true writer and artist creates his/her own ideas from scratch.
