Prodigal: A Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Fanfic

     Where has he gone? The son that was once my own, raised alone without a mother’s tenderness? Has he vanished into a world where reality has been turned on its head? Did I turn the little boy, with his love of sweets, into a man with love of…nothing? For pleasure, in the end, ebbs out to nothing…unless something deeper is found. Perhaps the same … Continue reading Prodigal: A Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Fanfic

The West Wind Comes Walking: A Lord of the Rings Fanfic

          The little ones…the little ones were in danger…      Boromir, still on his knees, clutches at the dead leaves around him, his thoughts turning from his desperation to claim the Ring for his father’s kingdom to his desperation to save his smallest friends from death. He doubts that the hobbits have ever seen death by hand-to-hand combat before. Their eyes have not yet been … Continue reading The West Wind Comes Walking: A Lord of the Rings Fanfic

Eat of the Heart: A Harry Potter Fanfic

      Darkness reigns. It penetrates. It permeates. It sings. And the man who would plug his ears to that siren’s song, that suffering scream, finds himself taking solace in the drink. He must drink it down in a single swallow, let it slither down his throat like a snake…       Drop by drop, the drink dulls, dulls the memories of the blood shed yesterday, today, … Continue reading Eat of the Heart: A Harry Potter Fanfic

Broken Things: A Game of Thrones Fanfic

     “What have you done? By the all the gods, what have you done to the poor girl?”      “Dearest Uncle, I’ve made her a present for you! I’ve made her worthy of you! I’ve conquered her, as we will conquer her brother!”      She lies as still as she can in the bed, naked, broken, shaking. There is no blanket, no coverlet, and everyone … Continue reading Broken Things: A Game of Thrones Fanfic

A Kiss Goodnight: A Game of Thrones Fanfic

     Tyrion entered Sansa’s chamber gingerly, not wanting to make her uneasy by his presence. He simply wanted to see if she was getting along alright. Their conversation earlier that day about her murdered family had ended with her running away to find seclusion. Perhaps, he thought, his efforts to console her had done more harm than good.      But now he just wanted to … Continue reading A Kiss Goodnight: A Game of Thrones Fanfic

Muffins and Moonflowers: A Harry Potter Fanfic

     From the first year Severus Snape taught Luna Lovegood in Potions Class, she was always getting on his nerves by being unfailingly cloudy in the head.

A Prayer to the Stranger: A Game of Thrones Fanfic

     Tossing, turning, and the night falling heavily, like a think mantle of northern cloth. There was no moonlight, not even starlight, just the blackness of raven wings, and the weight of stone hearts. There rose a string of words, chanted by monotonous voices without meaning, swirling up and around like pungent incense. It was thick and breathless. And it was hot. So hot…burning up … Continue reading A Prayer to the Stranger: A Game of Thrones Fanfic

Gloria: A Hunger Games Fanfic

Christmas. It’s an old word from an old world. Oh sure, some people still celebrate smatterings of it in Panem, but it’s not as if they remember much of the story that started it all, not really. It’s just old-fashioned nostalgia, some antique card or decorative glass ball, maybe a stocking hung up by the fireplace, God knows why. For over seventy years, the Capital … Continue reading Gloria: A Hunger Games Fanfic
