April in Scotland - Weather, Fauna and Flora

You're at Hogwarts. The snow is starting to melt, here and there. It returns sometimes, and there are cold snaps, but the sense in the air is that Spring is actually going to happen. What are the things you look for while you are outside on the grounds of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry? ...

Re: Sleeping Beauty - Creative Task

This is a dream which is repetitive. I don't really remember much of it, when awake, but when it starts, I remember - oh this. Yes ... Mostly it is a huge ensemble of singers and dancers, and they are singing a song. It looks like one of the huge chorus sets of the old movies, with the sweeping stag...

Re: Rapunzel - Creative Task

This isn't a favorite recipe per se -- it is something in a story I was reading. The person, Sunny, was craving pickled beets. What is funny about cravings and pregnancy is that often that which is craved is not part of the person's regular diet nor even a favourite food. Normally Sunny couldn't sta...

Real Life reminders of books

Has it ever been that you have been quietly (or not so quietly) going about your Real Life and suddenly something reminds you of something in a book so strongly that you are, for a moment, thrown into that story? Last week I saw my first dandelion flower here. Immediately, I remembered The Hunger Ga...

The magical fish is highly elusive, and very difficult to find. They have the ability to mimic the colouring of their environment, much like chameleons, with the different parts of their body. While in the water, though, if there is nothing around them like seaweed or sea bottom or anything like tha...

Re: Snow White - Creative Task

When worn it looks like the 'perfect' plain gold ring; no inscriptions, no nothing, just a smooth oval of a rich gold. The ring just looks 'off'. It's attenuated from what it was. At first glance it appears to be a cheap 'gold' ring with maybe some sort of solid dark inlay on the interior of the rin...

A way of making an entrance

Yeee-eep!" shrilled a high, childish voice. It could have been mortal agony, terror, or even hysterical laughter. The captain broke into an apprehensive trot.

Is he a real magician, using magic, or are they tricks and befuddlements cleverly crafted to deceive the crowd? Do you like Elver? Use spoilers when discussing - we'd not like you to turn into a...

The plot thickens. Some people are acting in a manner which seems based in fear -- and others are acting in a manner which indicates they are wanting to escape an unreasonable and/or thoroughly objectionable (to them) destiny. What choices would you make if you were in the shoes of Sulas or Arneth? ...
