“Twice upon a time”

published 11/08/2005

ProTwo fairy tales for the price of one

ContraOne fairy tale for the length of two

In his room under the eaves of the old farmhouse, Jack sat listening to the drips as the rain trickled through the leaking thatch. The roof was overdue for repair. Everything in the old farmhouse was overdue for repair. He shrugged. The leaks wouldn't really matter so long as the damp didn't seep...

“Changes”

published 12/08/2005

Pro.

Contra.

The view from Grace's flat window was nothing special; in fact it was downright depressing. All she could see were more of the same featureless high rise blocks of flats as she lived in herself, obscured by the rain running slowly down the glass. The grey heavy clouds and pouring rain only added...

Not for me

ProIt was fun

ContraIt's very long and It might be a bit rubbish

Thank you to Elffriend for starting this one off, it was fun. And thank you to Torr for inspiring me so much with his entry. And apologies for the length! Tiny bubbles of sweat, like little glass beads, formed on Cindy's forehead as she leaned closer to the flame. The beads coalesced and slid...

Pro:o)

Contra:o(

Once upon a time, Rose rose early … habitually, every single weekday morning. Indeed it wasn't uncommon for her to be seen leaving the house before dawn ... particularly if Dawn had been out partying the night before, and had returned home the worse for drink. Rose struggled into her burgundy...

“The Sleeping Beauty.”

published 27/07/2005

ProA chance for writers to adapt thier skills.

ContraOnly limited by imagination.

A few weeks back I asked Ciao to introduce this category for several reasons. My first idea was to take a fairy tale and adapt it to modern-day stories thinking this would be a challenging experience for many of the excellent writers on Ciao. My second reason was to allow people from different...

“Behind the eyes of the devil”

published 18/03/2006

Prolets you know what a beautiful world we live in

Contradistance makes the heart ache

Unbeknown to them, life was about to change. Life between a man who had lost his soul, and a lady who was about to capture it, She would take the soul from the devil, and caress it from afar. His angel will capture his heart, it would be lost to her alone, whilst he's left in a bewilderment and...

“Dr. Freudine Gets Misty”

published 28/08/2005

Prodepends on your perspective

Contradepends on your perspective

My door is locked. He must've really 'loved' me for not being here when he came back. Letting myself in, I sense something, a note probably, waiting for me and turn the light on since it was darkening outside. Then I spy my notebook, opened, on the kitchen table and I did not leave it there...
