This is where I'm going to post my novellas and short stories pertaining to the Riftweavers. If you're wondering who/what the Riftweavers are, you should click here.
Important to note:
  • I did not create the Weavers; Mage did.
  • What's in that aforelinked board is mostly AltCan (alternate canon), upon which I was an overwhelming influence, but was still under Mage's jurisdiction and at her discretion.
  • Mage writes ComCan (common canon). The two have diverged and are, for all intents and purposes, independent.
Anyway, because they are legit novellas, it's silly for me to post the stories as content in posts, because they're in excess of 40 pages long in word with default settings (1" margins, 12 pt Times font, et cetera). That being said, I'll post them as attachments in .doc format (because it's the most universal with the most format retention) on dedicated posts. I'll keep a running list here in this first post as I release them, arranging them in order that they are meant to be read, and linking to each one. Kinda like a Table of Contents, if you would. I won't actually begin this list until after the second novella is posted.

Anyway, between each novella posting, this is still just another thread; feel free to talk about the pieces. I like feedback. I defend my reasons for writing how I do, but I LIKE feedback. And just knowing if anyone likes them is nice too.

This is Chasing Shadows (CS).



You may find the original Chasing Shadows Roleplay here.
My novella is a redux of this Original RP. A pretty heavy one, given that the ORP was what we Weavers referred to as "Prevamp", i.e. before Mage had settled down on how everything was going to work and we rebooted the entire project. It was the very first Riftweaver story.

So glad you've finally posted this (and apologies for the late comment). As you already know, I love what you've done with the story. :)

Now, where's Klarth/Albert? He was pestering to be able to read it; now he needs to comment. :P

He should, ja?
Anyway, here's the next story. Or the previous. A previous, that is. Another story. Yeah.

This is A Wolfless Winter Night (AWWN).



A Wolfless Winter Night is an original piece, and therefore is not based on an RP. It goes a great way in exploring the operation and limits of the canon setting (i.e. reality), and so in a way could be called a romp. It occurs toward the end of the first story megarc. I will add it to the table of contents in the first post.

I love this story, and I enjoyed it even more this time through because the familiarity enabled me to focus on the significant details more. When you posted the original draft in Midgard Below I was completely in the dark about where it was going and so found myself musing about things that turned out to be irrelevant, or not picking up on things that were.

The only thing I'll say that might possibly sound slightly negative is that I do think you need to be familiar with the characters to fully appreciate this story, so a reader with no knowledge of Weaver canon might not find it so satisfying.

Oh no arguing that at all.

I could easily see these stories collected together into groups of 4 or 5 stories to a book that would be read together. AWWN wouldn't certainly fall in the middle or at the end somewhere.

EDIT:
I appear to have made an error in continuity betwixt these two stories. Not all of you will be able to figure out what it is, based on your knowledge of unpublished Weaver canon, but may be able to if you dig enough in the conversations in the old forum. I plan on correcting it in one of the stories and replacing it with the revised version when I'm ready to put up my next novella. If anyone can figure out what it is, they will win a special prize.

Alas, they do not.
But look—now you've stumbled across ANOTHER treasure hunt of sorts.

And I was so sure I had it with the File Attachments being rather marginish in the way they show up on the Forum. Oh, well, back to searching.

So, so, so the above post, although intended to be followed up immediately with a story that it applied to, is still relevant to the next story I will put up and am working on at this moment.

In general, however, here are some teaser links to things I've had for some time and are relevant to things that will eventually come about sooner or later. I was looking through them and thought it was sorta pointless to have them just sitting around.

Stories, plural. They're from across the first arc. Except the Ute desktop, which is from...something else.
