Dragon Offering
Lustra – who wouldn’t die to leave it? To fly – even in the gullet of a silver beast – up and up, out and away, higher than the southwind, into the expanse of the innumerable stars?
The idea of summoning a dragon would never have occurred to my mother, when she lived, or to hers. But theirs was a different age: our queen was young then, and the fishing was better, too. Much better. Now we race home at twilight with every haul, dogged by slick-winged drakes.
The ancient Queen still clings to life, despite all our prayers. She offered up our only Princess to a Dragon for more youth, three years ago, and got other treasures as well, if you believe the stories. But none of them have ever left her Islot Grise, and now we’ve lost even the hope of one day seeing another head beneath the crown. And it’s occurred to me, and to others before me – if she can trade with Dragons as it pleases her, with the blessing of her kept priests, then why not us as we

Our Nightingale sings from the highest point in the city no more. Last year, Rumen Tsor replaced her with a doll of gold-dressed porcelain: a doll who, according to the first precepts of the Mundites, has no mind and no soul. The Tsor's new pet sang to him for nine months, and resides with him now on the top of his tower, built as a gleaming, jagged finger of warning to the Supari he rules in the city below.
The Nightingale has returned to the Supari streets she came from, where schools of irridescent fish dart between grim iron effigies of trees (a state-imposed gift of Rumen Tsor's father) and tender-footed porcupines clamber from window to window, across hacked-up telephone lines used for hanging washing, with messages in lace pinned to their mottled gray spines. The resentful whimsy of her people knows no bounds: witches, magicians, and mountebanks all, Rumen Tsor used to called them before he bought her, to the great amusement of his court.
In the jagged canyons north of our city,

Innovation for Writers
There have always been a lot of writers on deviantART begging for more recognition. It's understandable that literature is given a lower priority: as I'm writing this, there are 3,280 "Writers" online, which compared to the 10,671 "Artists" is a relatively small community. So all of us writers whine about how we never get "the attention that we deserve." There are plenty of stamps declaring, "Writers are artists too!" and all that sort of thing. But we never really get anywhere.
Well let's get serious, people.
deviantART easily has the most impressive coding I've ever seen. And the latest updates of the message centre, notes and v7 were stunning. So much is possible; it's time to give writers the edge.
When deviantART's Portfolio feature was released, it stated:
"Some people ask if Portfolio supports Literature, Film or Flash Animations. Unfortunately these formats are not yet supported, but we are working hard to make sure to support these media in the future with presentation formats
