Thanks so much. You just made my day. I'm glad you like it.
I writ some storys too,but only fantasy storys.
I love writing! I work with my friend in a sort of pass-around format where one of us writes a part and then the other one of us writes another. We have one unfinished one that started out as a Star Wars story, then it got out of control and wasn't really Star Wars anymore, so we changed all the names and traits, so it's not recognizable as a Star Wars story. It's more like an interplanetary fantasy. It's not really sci-fi. We just realized suddenly that we couldn't work in the Star Wars universe--we needed one of our own! We kinda put that one down when we suddenly discovered Lord of the Rings, and we're now writing a LOTR story that looks as though it will have to stay in Middle-Earth.
Our "Interplanetry Fantasy" as I call it still needs a ton of work, but we both think it has a lot of potiental. I'm fairly certain we'll go back to it sometime, and I'd really love to see it published sometime, but that's going to be a LONG way off.
OOOOH... Freaky, Frodorocks! I like it too!!!!
I would also love to read your story Gandalf_White! May I?
Most people here know about my Elanor story. I already posted most of it and I'm almost finished. It's on the thread 'I must know someone elses oppinion!'
(Yes I know about the misspellings.)
Bravo Frodoroacks, bravo. Good job.
Up until this last year I didn't write very good stories, but since sometime early last year I have been struck with a lot of ideas for stories and my writing has gotten better.
I've written most of my stuff for my freshman english class this last year. I've written a conclusion to an unfinished story for english. Maybe one of you had to do this to, it was called THE LADY OR THE TIGER? I'll sum it up for those of you who have not had to read this, the basic plot is that a princess and a peasant fall in love, which not only is against the law, but against her father's (the king's) wishes. So in a coloseum (sp??) they judge him like all the criminals. There are two doors in the arena portion, and the felon must open one door and there will either be a lady who will be immediately wed to him or a tiger to devour him. It ends as the guy opens the door. And that's where we picked up writing the story.
As I wrote the rough draft of my conclusion that we needed, I was watching a movie. The movie's title was GLADIATOR. Needless to say it turned into a gore fest. But not a the tiger lept at the man adn killed him gore fest. A play by hideous and disgusting play. Though I knew my mistake as I wrote it not that it mattered, tiger would go for you neck not you gut. Then as we had one of our peers go through and correct the grammatical errors, mine was the longest one. And while he was trying to finish reading it other people looked at it and caught just a few sentences of it. Every one was shocked. But you should have heard the dead silence when they got the teacher to read it out loud.
We also had to write an one act play, a myth ( I did an end of the world myth for the Greeks, which was probably one of my best), and various other short stories. Most of my stories aren't as violent as the first one.
I have been working on a story of my own that has been changing since I started. It starts off at a high school were our main characters are first introduced. Then out of nowhere something hits the earth and very few people survive, less than a hundred through out the entire globe. Then we have the coping, learning, and mistakes of the small group we follow. Then one is out cast and then we find a stockpile of technology and the ones who destroyed the majority of the earth. But chances are the ending will change by the time I get done with the first part though.
I'm putting together a series of stories that are interconnected years after the war of the ring
The characters are:
Baldur a Knight of Gondor
Jarek a Knight in the Rohirrim
Kili II a dwarf who helped Gimli rebuild and protect the glittering caves of Aglarond
Koraga one of the last orcs
Arvel & Elrohim an elven couple who remained in middle Earth
Theoden Brandybuck & Faramir Took (Faramir is an actual character from the LOTR trilogy family tree as Pippin's son) two hobbits who are the main characters.
Interesting characters. What is the story outline and setting?
I have written severalstories over the years, and have co-written a few with my wife, and have adapted some RPs that I have been a part of into stories. Some were on Henneth Annun, but now reside on Archive Of Our Own. Also have a couple on Open Scrolls and Many Paths To Tread.
I'm still working on that. I've decided to change Baldur to Boromir II who is Faramir's son.
I'm also going to do a story based on either Elboron (Faramir's son) or Barahir (Faramir's grandson).
I used to write a lot; but being busy has prevented me from doing so. I consider myself a decent writer; not the worst, but not the best either. I also like to create my own worlds. Many that I have no idea what to do with! Like a modern fantasy setting that I have no characters for. (At the world building stage.) , but I am also working on a LOTRs abridged story. Full of Tolkeiner in jokes, Cracks at Shagrat's name, and other amusing acts. (Be warned, I have a Very dark sense of humor!)
About a year ago I wrote some short stories, I don't quite remember what it exactly was about.
All I can remember is that it was about elves and a great war. I should look through my notes to find back the story,
I'm getting curious about what I wrote
