The ability to write is a gift; some of you have that gift. It’s all yours, but no matter how long you have it, or how you use it, it is still a gift and it has a little piece of the giver in it. If talents could be bought, you could save up the money for a long time and buy the same thing...yet, it will never be the same. It will never be like a gift. A gift is between two people. A gift cannot be wasted without wasting the Giver.

Hullo! We are Rose and Psyche. We are sisters: Rose is the eldest, but Psyche is the wisest. Rose is really Orual, but would rather go by her nickname.

If you've read C. S. Lewis' Till We Have Faces, then you will understand the reference. If you haven't, do read it. Till We Have Faces may not be Lewis' most well known work, but it is certainly one of his very best and in our opinion, his masterpiece.

Most of these stories are a joint effort, Psyche does the writing and Rose does all the odd managing this account and being a technical and historical advisor. We both specialize in wild imaginations.

PM doesn't mean post mortem. Please, if you should have any questions, comments or thoughts to share with us, send them along! (Unicorn Postal Service is preferred, but if you can only hire a griffon, we'll settle for that.)

The Band of Virtuous Men and Valorous Women

‘Virtue’ came from the word ‘Vir’, meaning ‘man’ in Latin. In our late great age of post moderness, very few men and women show true virtue; the qualities of wisdom, honor, courage and resolution. We have great respect for the men and women of old fashioned days, men who were courageous and strong and women who were gentle, yet as breakable as steel. Herein, you may find those few stories on this site of manly men and womanly women. You may think this strange, or even a little silly, but we assure you, it is deadly serious.

In War: Resolution. In Defeat: Defiance. In Victory: Magnanimity. In Peace: Goodwill. - Winston Churchill

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed, for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. - Joshua 1:9

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. - Proverbs 31:10

Arm yourselves, and be ye men of valour, and be in readiness for the conflict; for it is better for us to perish in battle than to look upon the outrage of our nation and our altar. As the Will of God is in Heaven, even so let it be. - 1 Maccabees 3:58–60

A Company of Brothers

By Amazing-Thalia-Grace

This Hobbit-based community shall be a safe haven for all those who want to read a family story about the members of the company, without any of them being romantically involved with each other.

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. - 1 Corinthians 13:12 (KJV)

- o*o -

For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. - 2 Timothy 4:6-8 (KJV)

'...we're too young to realize that certian things are impossible.' - William Pitt, Amazing Grace

She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. Some days, she's the reason you wish you were an only child. - Barbara Alpert on sisters


Some People have had the kindness to ask us for tips on writing and while writing is something that comes from inside and once out, has a life of its own, there are a few things that we've found helpful:

Don't take yourself seriously: we're serious, here; learn to laugh at yourself. There's nothing more important than remembering that you might not be the most wonderful writer in the world... because, you're not. As King Peter pointed out in Prince Caspian (and he ought to know), "The best swordsman in the world may be disarmed by a trick that's new to him."

Avoid self inserts: Not self inserts, per se, if they really are you, there isn't anything wrong with that; we mean you should avoid inserting what you think you're like. If you can laugh at yourself, your characters will have a better chance of coming alive (see above). As Shakespeare so eloquently put it, "God has given you one face, and you make yourself another." Because, no matter how hard you try, your characters will always have a dash of you in them.

Be careful with word usage: Take a little time to check your spelling and find out word meanings. Let's get this straight once and for all: 'hanged' is a form of capital punishment, 'hung' is what you do with the laundry.

Don't initially 'write' chapters: This works for some, but not others. We've found that we think better if we write the story through, adding asterisks at a change of scene. After the story is complete and we make all the changes we want we take a day to put chapters in. That leads into the next thing we like to do.

Complete your story before you try posting it: A story grows all the way through and when it's done you might want to go back and overhaul it in places. Sometimes finishing it and leaving for a few months is helpful too, because when you've gone and forgotten what you were thinking when you were writing it, you realize that you are your own best critic. Writing one chapter at a time and posting it (for me at least) would be like handing over the ingredients of a cake and never getting around to baking it.

Be yourself: There are literally tons of writers in the world and the best became the best because they weren't trying to copy anyone else's style or ideas. Give us yourself; tell us a story and be sincere about it and there's a good chance that you'll become one of the best, also. We don't want to hear what everyone else has to say, we want to hear you.

On that note, take some advice from Doctor Suess, "You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the guy who'll decide where to go."

What is a Mary-Sue (or male counterpart: Gary-Stu)?

We’ve seen many definitions of ‘Mary-Sue’ over the years and we think, in general, most people miss the point. Mary-Sues aren’t just supernatural warrior women with unbelievable good looks, skills and the ability to Save the Story…in fact, we think some perfectly decent characters, if written correctly, could have all those qualities.

No, more specifically (in our humble opinions) the quality of ‘Mary-Sue’ has absolutely nothing to do with the character herself, but has everything to do with how other characters react to her. You can tell a Mary-Sue exists in your story if other characters react in an idiotic, insulting, obsessive, irrational, primal, or otherwise out-of-character manner in her presence. A common cliché is the love/hate relationship between the Hero of the Story and Mary-Sue; the Hero behaves in a rational and gentlemanly manner with other members of his company, but is constantly antagonizing Mary-Sue (until they suddenly fall in love, of course).

There is more than one kind of Mary-Sue. We all know about Tough, Swashbuckling, Skilled Sues who know how to use two swords and shoot people full of arrows, but there are Sues at the other end of the spectrum, as well. Some people, when attempting to write a non-Mary Sue manage to create the Gentle, Perfect, Sweet and Innocent Sue. I've even run into Ugly Sues, Blind Sues and Flat-footed Sues (that last one I just made up). Keep in mind, It really doesn't matter how your character looks, it only matters how other characters react to her.

There are a lot of people out there who like to bash Mary-Sue (us included); in some ways, it is unkind of us to vent our frustration at the expense of authors whose characters (in our opinions) fall into this fateful category, but we also (since we are not emotionally involved) have a more objective view of your story. Take a step back, look at your Original Character critically. If you met her (or him) suddenly while you were out walking, how well do you think you’d get along? Would you be able to stand her superhuman beauty, special set of skills and sparkling intellect? Would you fall head-over heels in love at first sight? Or would you wave and say, “Have a nice morning!” and continue on your way?

"No [woman] can be really esteemed accomplished who does not greatly surpass what is usually met with. A woman must have a thorough knowledge of music, singing, drawing, dancing, and the modern languages, to deserve the word; and besides all this, she must possess a certain something in her air and manner of walking, the tone of her voice, her address and expressions, or the word will be but half-deserved." - Caroline Bingly, Pride and Prejudice

The Reality of Fantasy:

‘Good’ and ‘Bad’ have become cliché. In fact, if somebody were to coin new words that describe the concepts of Good and Bad we might find that life has a whole new meaning.

One thing I like so much about Fantasy is that Good and Bad can be illustrated without naming them and People never doubt what they really are. I don’t think there’s much debate over whether Aslan is Good or the White Witch is Bad and most People don’t come at the Lord of the Rings from the angle that Sauron is being maltreated by a pack of Evil Hobbits who stole his ring.

This is what is so elegant about Fantasy; there is a fine line between reality and allegory.

Yet when we come to real life and real history, People are often at a loss as to who is Good and who is Bad and there is even some question as to what is real and what isn't. History has been rewritten in scores of ways with scores of different viewpoints. Was Hitler an Evil villain who murdered up to 17 million People in cold blood, or was that a lie spread to cover the fact that he was a great hero who tried to save his country’s honor? Some People are still not sure.

Goods and Bads can almost never be explored without treading on other People’s feelings. Those few who dare to question the ever changing narrative suddenly find themselves facing an overpowering flood like a stick caught in the surge of a river. So, People have gotten in the habit of believing the latest thing they hear (the comfortable thing, that is) and trying to reconcile everything, no matter how incongruous.

Yet, lurking in that same compliant mind there is no doubt that the Ring in The Lord of the Rings had to be dropped in the Mountain and that Frodo was a great hero for going off to do it. If someone tried to argue that it was the other way around, this same man would call what the second said, nonsense. And he’d be right to do so. In Middle Earth, Good and Bad cannot be melded, yet for some strange reason in our world they can… or can they?

In reality Good and Bad are in our world as surely as they are in Middle Earth, we just can’t always recognize them when we see them. We, through long training, have learned to see in shades of grey instead of in black and white. Fantasy tricks this out of us and we don’t even realize it.

The Touch of the Master's Hand

Twas battered and scarred, and the auctioneer
thought it scarcely worth his while to waste much time on the old violin,
but held it up with a smile; "What am I bidden, good folks," he cried,
"Who'll start the bidding for me?" "A dollar, a dollar"; then two!" "Only
two? Two dollars, and who'll make it three? Three dollars, once; three
dollars twice; going for three.." But no, from the room, far back, a
gray-haired man came forward and picked up the bow; Then, wiping the dust
from the old violin, and tightening the loose strings, he played a melody
pure and sweet as caroling angel sings.

The music ceased, and the auctioneer, with a voice that was quiet and low,
said; "What am I bid for the old violin?" And he held it up with the bow.
A thousand dollars, and who'll make it two? Two thousand! And who'll make
it three? Three thousand, once, three thousand, twice, and going and
gone," said he. The people cheered, but some of them cried, "We do not
quite understand what changed its worth." Swift came the reply: "The touch
of a master's hand."

And many a man with life out of tune, and battered and scarred with sin,
Is auctioned cheap to the thoughtless crowd, much like the old violin, A
"mess of pottage," a glass of wine; a game - and he travels on. "He is
going" once, and "going twice, He's going and almost gone." But the Master
comes, and the foolish crowd never can quite understand the worth of a soul
and the change that's wrought by the touch of the Master's hand.

-Myra 'Brooks' Welch


IF you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
' Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,
if neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!

- Rudyard Kipling

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. - Philippians 4:8

Our Policy on Reviews:

We have to admit to some puzzlement as to the way reviews are handed about on this site...we sometimes write long, time-consuming reviews after reading stories and...get nothing in reply. We would think you could at least say thank-you.

There is another odd idea hanging around that in order for one person to review another person, the other person has to review back. We think this is silly. We will continue to review your stories if we like them; you don't have to review us. On the flip side, if you review us, we will reply to let you know that we got it and appreciate it, however, we will not bounce immediately over to your profile and review your story. We don't 'sell' reviews, because we believe reviews are supposed to be objective and critical.

Disclaimer: This is

For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this? - Esther 1:14
