Re: To Stand Once More in the Sun

I poke my head around this forum once every 6 mo. or so to see if anyone is still here. I have some of my Exalted fiction up on FanFiction.net and I did find some people who are still interested there. Just a thought, maybe you would get some comments on your story? Here's the link to my profile htt...

Re: The Ballad of Windswept Rhapsody

After we finished off a good number of crabs and drank our fill of a magnificent, evil, fermented sugar brew that Devil claimed was her own personal invention – I somehow found the words to tell my new friend what had happened to me, the whole of it, starting with how I'd run afoul of Gyoza in the f...

Re: Exalted Fiction Potpourri

I like the one with Auspicious Dawn and the Sidereal (Velena? Sorry, I'm terrible on names). If it doesn't precisely go anywhere, it's still good dialogue. Your Chosen of Venus reminds me of the one in my game. He kept whittling away at our Solar's "personal life" until our Solar got frazz...

Re: The Ballad of Windswept Rhapsody

This story (being Rhapsody's origin story) takes place a long time ago (100 years before the rest of my stories - before the Scarlet Empress disappeared). As far as Clever Devil goes - like Rhapsody, she gets around. She's actually from An Teng originally, but she pissed off a few old and powerful f...

Re: The Ballad of Windswept Rhapsody

Part 2 - About the time I found my feet, I realized that all of the sailors aboard The Blood Shark were staring in my direction as if they'd just witnessed someone rising from the dead. It was fairly obvious that none of them saw the man with the radiant face, which left me with a fairly good guess ...

The Ballad of Windswept Rhapsody

Not sure how long this one will go. But it sure was fun to write. ^_^ --------------- Part 1 - Thk! I hadn't slept in three days, but the sound of a forty inch jade blade cutting into the mainmast right over my head woke me right up. As my big brother One-Eyed Jack often says, there's nothing like a...

Vanguard

GASP! Can it be? A new story?! It is a bit rough and ragged. I had some trouble working on my REALLY BIG STORY and ended up on this one instead. ______________ VANGUARD, Ch. 1: I knew there was something wrong as I rode towards Fort Glory. I'd been gone two weeks not counting the days I'd camped at ...

Re: The Dowager's Well (Read Last)

I can’t remember any of the conversation that Quill and I had that evening, but sometime after midnight I found that I had a sick sort of feeling weighing heavily on my heart. I suspected that Quill had probably convinced both Veritas and myself to do all kinds of things we were going to regret. As ...

Re: The Dowager's Well (Read Last)

Suffice to say, I’d had hardly any sleep when a commotion downstairs woke Amira. Veritas looked surprisingly well-rested considering the circumstances. Roach was obviously nursing a hangover… or rather, Viper had Roach lying on the bar with a cold rag on his forehead and a mug of beer in his hand. H...

Re: The Dowager's Well (Read Last)

Not knowing what else to do, I went to find Amira. She was standing in the middle of a bridge on a deserted street when I finally tracked her down. Roach was nursing something foul-smelling in a small bottle and Veritas was examining the architecture, furiously scribbling notes. “I wish I could tes...

Re: The Dowager's Well

Veritas landed his warbird in a copse of trees not far from the road and the four of us piled out. We spent the next hour arguing about the best way to hide the craft, and then Veritas grudgingly agreed to let Amira cast a spell on it. He watched her preparations critically and I did not doubt that ...

The Dowager's Well (Read Last)

This story will make much more sense if you've already read "Alexander the Great", "Shadowsbane" and "Godchaser". It may also help to read "Heaven Sent" and "Pandora's Box". It begins with Loren (Dawn), Sapphire (Night) and Veritas (Twilight) from wh...

Re: Pandora's Box

Though we were already a fair clip ahead of our pursuers when they stumbled into my Thamaturgy, the first of the Anathema's “bad traps” proved to be worthy of my full attention. At first I let Yurasu lead the way so that he wouldn't slow us down by keeping his distance from our still-glowing compani...

Re: Pandora's Box

I don't know how long I was unconscious for, but it seemed like an eternity. My dreams were muddled and seemed to consist mostly of conflicting images of hunting in the forest, skulking my way through dungeons as I had in my youth and having great, dramatic arguments with a man that I could never se...

Pandora's Box (Read 5th)

Pandora's Box (Part 1) “Good. Now a little more to the left.” I whispered, watching my student attempt to disarm a particularly complicated trap. Yurasu was sticking his tongue out again as he worked, but I decided not to point out his little lapse of dignity. While I held my end of the rope taunt,...

Re: The Thoroughly Authenticated Reminisces of Fennec

I do like the character and I definitely see why you're writing the narrative in his rather disjointed "voice" - but this is a bit hard to follow.

Still interested to see what happens next.

When my vision cleared I couldn't see who'd woken me but there were still fae all around. I guessed they'd...
