Labyrinth with a barrier: 21 December 1863

by Daniel Dyson

“Gustave! Gustave! Please listen to me!”
Gustave Daaé looked up from his paper. Antoinette Giry was standing in front of him, with a bewildered look in her eyes, panting heavily. Clearly something was wrong. “What’s wrong, Annie? Why don’t you have a seat?” He motioned her to sit in the chair across from his desk.
Antoinette stopped breathing for a moment and sat down. She was beginning to doubt whether or not Gustave would feel any sympathy to what she had to tell him. Surely, he will help, can he not, she thought to herself. After all, I did save him from the life he was living years ago, and the only reason he’s in the Sûreté now is because of my insistenceâ?¦ and his wife is another indirect plus.

life. Through his travels, he encounters fanatics, laborers,
bureaucrats, and vagrants struggling against death in a vast

he wants to see?

Strange hunter: Beginning

by Set Thompson

For as long as she could remember, she had been cared for by a family of little means but kinds hearts that lived in a tiny enclave, some miles from the edge of the mighty forest. Though they were not her real parents, they were Ma and Da to her. And to her great heartbreak, Da had died of a fever this last spring. He had long been training both Miriel and Braedon in his craft as a woodworker, at which occupation Braedon already showed remarkable skill. Da had been able to support his family with adequate food, clothing and shelter, though none of the family’s possessions spoke of any luxury. Ordinarily they traded his wares for their necessities in Dale. On very rare occasion, they might manage to sell a luxury piece to the elves who purchased for the Elvenking, which would mean extra food on the table for many a long month.
Her father had specialized in small pieces of furniture of great beauty and craftsmanship; some said his best pieces rivaled those the Elves themselves made. Miriel’s most cherished possessions were her bow, and the carven pendant her Da had made her in the shape of a stag’s antlers, of a special hardwood that was a true purple color when sanded and polished. He had given it to her in honor of her skill at hunting; everyone unquestioningly knew she was the best archer in the village. At the earliest age she had shown interest, and he had learned to make fine bows when he was not busy with furniture. Always she wore her pendant proudly on her collarbones, but the day she lost her da, in a fit of grief she tied the cord that held it around her neck into knots that would never come out. Her da had chosen it because there was yet another way his daughter was special; her eyes were a stunning violet color, and the wooden pendant matched their hue. They stood out in vivid contrast to her golden hair. He was proud of his fiercely wild daughter, who loved to stalk game far more than she loved to sand lumber or prepare varnishes. And while he might have preferred she was inclined to more domestic pursuits, he could not deny that the food she brought in on a regular basis was a blessing to their family.

Bilateral: THE BEGINNING

by William Finch

Robb stood leaned over a table, talking lightheartedly with Winterfell’s ward, Theon Greyjoy. “Robb!” Bran cried. The two young men turned their heads, Theon wearing his usual smirk, Robb, a more concerned look about him – he knew when his little brother was serious and not.
“Brotherâ?¦ What’s the matter?” he asked his shocked brother.
“Iâ?¦” Bran gulped “I sawâ?¦ You know, marriage stuff” Theon rolled his eyes, his smirk growing into an all-knowing smile. The Heir’s expression lightened.
“Bran, we’ve already talked about this. There is nothing wroâ?¦ Wait” Before he could even cut himself off, Bran did it before him.
“No no, you don’t understand. I know what it was. I’m not scared like a little boy.” Bran lied. He was scared. Not of sex, but of who had been having it. Robb studied him, his face once more growing serious. “I-I was climbing the tower, I know I’m not supposed to, but I couldn’t help it.” The two older boys waited patiently. “I sawâ?¦” Bran’s voice grew into one close to a whisper, breathing heavily before continuing. “The Kingslayer, a-andâ?¦” His feeble voice was shaking, his voice growing thick and lips trembling. The unreadable cold yet concerned expression Robb gave him did for once not help. Bran sighed “And the Queen”.

Waking Fae: Prequel

by Sophia Harris

PREQUEL to WAKING FAE

Fae are the last species alive in the human world.
Fighting for survival. Only one race can live.

Each millennium, the passing occurs, a quick and painless crossing of three worlds. The human world, Earth, the Fae world, Lux, and the demonic world, Umbrae.

The passing has always been a smooth transition. A means to collect souls, light and dark. The year 2000 was when it all changed, when the worlds collided.

Present Year: 2065; very little human life is left. Earth is overrun with darkness and all existing light is being killed off. There are those who serve as protectors, but protecting an entire species might be more than anticipated.
