Puppet on a StringI've just received the news.
My eyes scan the lines on that piece of parchment I hold in my hands. I read them again. And again. And yet again. I understand the words but their sense eludes me.
How can you be alive?
I saw your body, burned and broken but it was you. I know it was you. The evidence was all there. Your staff. Your earring. The charm I gave you that had always been around your neck.
So how can you be alive?
My hands begin to tremble.
I buried you. I laid your ashes to rest. I cried over your grave.
How can you be alive?
I still stare at the words that threaten to shatter my world into a thousand pieces. They blur before my eyes as my head starts to spin with the absurdity of their meaning.
I don't want to believe it. I can't believe it.
If I believed any of those words to be true I would have to admit that everything else has been a lie and I just can't do that.
But the seed is already planted as the words slowly sink into my conscience.
There already is the
The Lovers of LothlorienThough the sun had long since set, and all was quiet, to him, there was no rest. Celeborn, Lord of the elven kingdom of Lothlorien, had finished his day and was passing the time among the woods of his land. For many long years he had dwelt in this forest, seen the trees come and go. Yet, as an elf, he had remained as he always has. Unchanging and ageless, like all of his kind. To his ears, the forest was not silent, but abuzz with the many far-away sounds. The winds blowing through the leaves. The animals scurrying about the forest floor. Even the footsteps of his own kin. All was heard by him.
He had lived through many ages, like many elves, and had seen much of the darker horrors this world had to offer, in war, or in the simple squabbles of those who lived beyond their borders. But here, near the edges of their protected realm, he found some peace. There was a tiny lake here, hidden among the many trees, known only to him and a select few others. Though he had come here often, it ne

RemembranceThe first time I saw her it felt like a dream, like something I had dreamt long ago and had forgotten but had abruptly and suddenly come to life.
Gold everywhere - in the decorations around me, in the dresses worn by the noble ladies who flood the room, in the walls of the pure rococo ballroom, but most of all, in her hair. Beautiful and golden, each strand filled with the astonishing colour, as if that of a golden witch. Golden colours all around me, and her, of course, as we are strangely pulled into a moment that feels as if it has taken too long to arrive. Even the light emitted by the chandelier and the multiple candelabrums seems to dress the whole room in this beautiful colour, which nonetheless fails to manage to rival any beauty from her. The serene blue of her eyes is the only thing that I can see and notice. Depths of blue that stare right into my very soul, with a spark of what seems to be the very same remembrance which for some reason I am feeling.
“Lord Battler, me
Being CarelessThe twisting skies of the Netherstorm shifted and surged with magic and chaos. Ley-lines coursed across the atmosphere in vivid display. Flashes of ether-lightning rent the air. The nether-winds drifted over the broken, wasted landscape. Chunks of what had once been a whole and healthy world floated, sailed, and crashed into one another and around each other.
And one mere mortal fancied making this her playground.
A running leap off the edge of a floating "island" sent arcanist Aranya Ver'Sarn freefalling through space, whooping and screaming like an excited girl. Air rushed past her face, whistling by her long, pointed ears. Her spine tingled fiercely, her every nerve was on edge, every muscle tense with anticipation. She wasn't aware of her breath - was she holding it, or had she lost it? Her eyes never left her target. The distance flew by as she dropped, and in the last instant, before the last second that would have seen her falling forever into nothingness, she
Tough, Tough, And Tougher Aim. Breathe. Fire. Merida Dunbroch was training hard in the Workshop, the headquarters for all the Guardians. She was shooting her arrows at a target in the Training Center, smiling in satisfaction as she saw that every single one was hitting dead center. She had to alternate from one target to another to prevent completely destroying the center of one single target by hitting it over and over again for hours.
"You're so boring," Astrid was leaning against the door frame of the Center, expressing her boredom dramatically in her tone and slouched posture. "All you're doing is flinging a pointy stick at a stationary target."
"So Ah 'spose Ah should swing an axe around then?" Merida bit back with a haughty glare over her shoulder.
"It would make you more interesting." Astrid grumbled, "But of course you wouldn't be able to handle an axe." The red head was only good with her bow, and that made the Vikin
February Literature NewsletterThere were a lot of exciting events going on here at CRLiterature last month, which definitely kept all of us on our toes, and hopefully the members of the literature community active and informed. Our Prose Basics Week with projecteducate was a lot of fun and a big success and we thank all who helped out with it. We also sadly had to say good-bye to the always wonderful and inspirational Beccalicious, who left the CV team after many terms of helping out with being a voice in the literature community. A busy start to 2014, but it hopefully is only the tip of the iceberg of things to come.

Fellas World - ContestWe all know Fella and dA wouldn't be the same without him anymore.
But did you ever wonder who he really is? Where does he come from? Why is he alone?
He is always at our side, lurking here and there, making your dA experience a little brighter and introducing you to new things all the time.
Your mission is to show us the world of Fella.
How does he live? Does he have pets? Is he the only one or are there other 'creatures' like him? Does he come from a distant planet? Is he the result of an experiment?
What does he eat? Or maybe he doesn't need to eat at all?
What is he doing in his freetime? Does he like to cook or read a good book? Or is he more of an adventurer, exploring the world outside?
Below you can see a few artworks, that already show Fella working for dA or in random situations. Maybe these inspire you to come up with other details of his life.
4th Annual Illustration Contest (First Entry!)We got our first entry! Scroll down to check it out!
And, yes, the Beast Wars Collab project is still underway.
And here we go again! The challenge, should you chose to accept it, is to transform my short stories from the verbal to the visual!
Pick your favorite story from the list below and draw a scene or characters from it! I try to be diverse in my writing; Action, drama, science fiction, romance, humans, robots... There should be something in there for everybody. Unfortunately, last year's chaos didn't allow me to be as proliferate as I would have liked, so there's more old favorites than new this time around. Some characters already have references, but some don't. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Some stories contain characters that belong to my friends, but feel free to draw them as well!
Last month, I asked, "What aspect of writing do you find the most difficult (planning, grammar, research, word choice, or whatever)?" Here are your replies:
