Tragedy of the Lemon Drops
Taak Hade was a light sleeper, as any species that evolved alongside dragons tends to be. Instincts that would have alerted his ancestors to a predator snooping around the den snapped him to full alertness. He threw the bedcovers off and propped himself up, eyes on the window cracked open to offer a cool night breeze.
The body poking halfway through the window shared nothing in common with ancestral threats aside from the yellow glow of large eyes. The male ghoul smelled of garbage, dirt, and that muskiness which clung to Taak’s body no matter how often he bathed. The intruder stretched out his neck to sniff at Taak’s writing desk, and then hopped inside.
Taak wrinkled his nose in indignation. He recognized the intruder’s scent- a young troublemaker named Meep. Based on the fresh scratches crossing his face, not much had changed since Taak saw him harass people at the Ghoul’s Meeting. Taak made a snap decision to take care of this without waking Mother and Fathe

Bad Jokes
Cop cars crawl the neighborhood, howling hounds with no sense of smell. Coyote’s nose knows where he needs to go. There is Medicine in that muzzle. The boy locked in the lonely man’s house tells a story with his fear. The Trickster’s stomach twists, but there is hope in that scent song. The prison has been occupied for mere minutes before the warden rushed off on some remembered errand.
Coyote changes into his blond-and-red-dress apparel. The effect was not meant to be motherly, but it will do in a pinch. A dusting of Medicine Powder opens the cell.
Coyote’s famished friend waits outside on watch. His complicated composition would only cause confusion.
The prisoner huddles on a bed with arms clasped around his knees. Tear-stained eyes widen.
Coyote plops on the foot of the bed, all smiles and sweetness. “My, you look like a smart young fellow. Maybe you can figure this one out. What is a Velociraptor’s favorite time for a snack?”
No response, b

CoSR: Bloody
Hello there.
It's me again, your all favourite four-eyed eyeless crow demon. My dear master gave me a permission to help him ih his mission to write down the chronicles of his vast family, the Schlegmori rats, and that's why I'm talking in here right now.
I personally think it's best to start by listing up persons rather than jumping to big events straight away, and I have just the right person to start from. Or, well, maybe not the best one to be first, but this person has really built himself a big reputation both among the Schlegmoris and other demons in average, and he sure is a memorable person. Not probably in the nice way.
I came around to get to know this person personally one day, when I received a mission from my master. It was a normal day for me, I had spent few days outside spending time and cathering information as I usually do, and I was soaring through the red skies towards the cave of my master to give my report to him.
Did you know that the sky around here is always r

Manabozho And The Maples
THE SPIDER WRIGGLED, trapped in a gooey web that slid down the side of the tree.  Slid actually was not the best word, considering it was barely moving at all.  The tiny creature flailed its sticky legs at the air and the moonlight glinted off the amber-colored beads adhering to its body.  Manabozho leaned down and peered at it curiously, tilting his head this way and that as it struggled futilely to free itself.  It could not have been trapped long, as its movements were still quick and energetic.  He doubted it would last much longer in the chill air, though.
He tried poking a finger at it, and its little legs clung onto him.  He pulled but it stayed stuck to the tree and just wriggled some more.  He made a face at the stickiness on his fingertip and wiped it off on his clothing, then poked at the spider a second time.  He feared he might have hurt it this time, so could think of no better course o

Ambassador Salspalda
Penny twirled 'round the corner, smacking face-first into a man's chest.
"Omigosh! Sorry, sir!" she said, yanking back. She looked up into the man's face, and froze.
There was no face. There was no head. There was a half-neck protruding from a collar, ruddy and swollen, terminating in a livid cross-section of tubes, muscle, and bone. Penny took three quick stumbles backward, mouth agape, where her brother Cornelius collided with her from behind.  
"Penny, what..." he began, before catching sight of the headless body and joining her in a moment of shocked silence.  "The devil...?"
Then a man's head came around the corner, in the most literal sense. Dark eyes stared down from a bronzed (and scowling) Arroyan face with handsome features, his black hair swept back in a long tail. Startlingly, the man ended halfway down his neck in the jagged mate to the headless, severed throat. The living head was joined to a ghostly body and a long cloak cinched at his throat hung aro

The Business
     Wolf stopped gnawing on his third plate of Lapin Bleu d'Auvergne and pointed at Deer with his fork. "The problem," he said, "is that you've got a bum deal going on with your agent. You're paying him far too much if all he was able to get you was public affection. I mean, there's what-- thirteen million white-tailed deer in the United States alone, right?"
     Deer looked down at his glass, which was half-full of some white wine. He was a little unsure whether or not he liked it, as he didn't really know what made wine good or bad or even what type of wine it happened to be. He'd looked at the menu, become flummoxed by the French, and had simply asked the waiter (in English) for something vegetarian with a suitable wine. This was his second glass or maybe his third; he'd already forgotten.  He swished it around a little.
     "Thirty million, actually," said Deer. "Not thirteen."

A Win for the Trickster

Journal Entry: Mon May 15, 2017, 8:39 PM

Recommendation time!

If you enjoy my stories inspired by Native American characters you might like the recent animated film Moana. The Polynesian trickster Maui legacy.shadowandact.com/wp-con… bears some broad similarities with Nanabozho, and to a lesser extent Coyote. He stole the show for me. Now, if I want to explain the concept of the trickster to people who aren’t familiar with mythology, I have something to point to. I’ve always felt a little left out in the fandom for the Avengers movies, because their version of Loki doesn’t feel like the trickster I grew up reading about. He’s interesting, but a bit too broody to be really fun. Maui is bouncy and naughty, compassionate and selfish. He helped shape the world in a way that was more comfortable for humans, and then kind of wrecked it. All those interesting contradictions that make the trickster such a compelling character.

Could this be a sign that non-European story cycles are becoming more marketable? I hope so. I’d love to see a movie starring Nanabozho. My favorite version of his tale is action packed, hilarious, and filled with emotional drama. Coyote would make a fun lead too. Or how about Anansi?

Do you have a favorite traditional character or story you’d like to see appear in film?

OK, now that I have some time I’ll let you know what I thought with a proper critique. =) The spacing in the intro dream sequence seems ...


This is a very intriguing concept. The Spider takes from a single person to help many, but doesn’t even need to kill that person to do ...

I will try to offer critiques on a wide variety of things when I have time, but my main focus is likely to be prose.

TheFantasyKings Featured By Owner May 2, 2017  New Deviant

We are TheFantasyKings and we are spreading Words of a Creativist’s Strength. Because we believe that a creative heart is the most vulnerable thing, and why most wither before what life throws at them is because they are weak. Whether you are old or new, recite these words:

   

· A creativist must be strong.

 

· A creativist must have the power of faith.

   

· A creativist must keep only the root inspiration alive.

   

· A creativist must always grow.

 

You become strong in many ways. You gain strength through practice, being emotionally strong, have disciplines, learning from the past or future headstrong self, through God. A creativist must be lucky. That comes from believing that everything will turn out great in the end and go on, then things will eventually become better. (But do use your reason.) The third point clears things from getting complicated. It’s very easy and very dangerous to be stuck in hoarding memory, in a creativist’s case, what things have inspired them. With time this list grows and the worry to lose those little things ‘that made you’ increases. Instead, you should keep the root inspiration – the book, the movie, the game, the experience, the feeling or the want – that maybe be one or three. Because that is the one that paved the path for you, what actually made you, all the others just come to teach something. And you can always regrow your list if you need. You must keep growing and expand your ground. (And stick to your one ground.) Don’t be stopped by the limited knowledge, skills or critic at the moment. You always learn throughout your journey. Let the words let you focus.

 

We hope you rise quicker from every slump you fall. And if you have any suggestion to make in these words, do reply.
