I feel bad about not posting any stories for the past couple prompts, so ta-da! A special story for Halloween! (Hope you enjoy it, despite the fact that I literally just typed this up, haha.)

Genre: Horror
Creature(s): Unknown
Summary: Can Becky escape before he comes?

The approaching footsteps sounded like thunder in my ears.

Please go, I pleaded silently, my back to the wall, my knees to my chest. Tonight was not supposed to turn out this way. But now, with a girl already dead, her blood pooling toward my sneakers, I could only hope that he’d bypass the door, at least for the moment. It would be the only chance I had to get away from him. The lights were off; my breaths were stilled. No, there was no way he’d be coming back in here. He couldn’t, or else--

The doorknob turned.

Genre: Post-apocalyptic Fantasy
Creatures: Dragons
Summary: The once and future king has returned, but with it a terrible cost. A young woman on the edge of civilization finds herself a choice between saving herself from a life of drudgery, or losing her life entirely.
A/N: Probably part one of a series. I like playing "fit the puzzle" with the prompts.

Genre: Historical (ha!) Fantasy
Creatures: No actual cute fuzzies. Just grumpy immortals.
Summary: A gentleman, pained with a toothache in Regency era England, goes to seek the help of the nearest dentist. He gets much more than a tooth pulled.

Note: Pretend gold teeth exist in Regency England. It will add a bit of glitter to this drab, wordy,  under-characterized story.
P.S: I apologize if there are multiple grammar problems. And I apologize if this doesn't make sense. This story wouldn't just END already. (I know this universe has a novel in it.)

(This story is a little late--sorry, guys! I'm choosing to blame the road trip. :P)

Genre:
 Fantasy
Creature(s): Greek gods
Summary: A retelling of a lesser-known Persephone myth.


I was a fool not to realize my husband wasn’t my husband the moment he approached me at the Styx. He may have had Hades’ alabaster skin, thick mane of hair, and fathomless black eyes, but the smile he’d flashed me on that fateful day was wide and brazen. Hades doesn’t smile like that--or at all, according to most others who have seen, or simply heard about, my husband’s grim demeanor.

  I tried to revise this last night but I know there are still probably tense mistakes and switcharoos. For that I apologize. This story should probably be twice as long to give it the full treatment as I discovered last night, but exhaustion took over and I had to call it done. If you have any ideas of how to improve the voice and the characterization, please share them! Edited to say: Comments provided by Twilighter1 have been put to good use. A thousand thanks Twilighter1! The improved version is below.

Ash and Honey

I rushed to write this, so it's sucky and long and...ugh. Sorry!

Anyway...

Creature(s): a freaky-deaky love tree
Genre: fantasy
Summary: Della has a crush on Brandon and ends up carving their names into a tree that's said to bind couples together forever.


DELLA
GIBSON
+
BRANDON
SEABURG
4EVER

Della’s fingers were bleeding by the time she finished carving their names into the tree. That still didn’t stop her from carving a heart around them next--then, on impulse, tracing that heart with her blood. She stepped back to admire her efforts, but admiration was quickly scared off by a much stronger emotion: stupidity.

Why did I do this? she scolded herself, before lifting her pocketknife yet again to scratch out the very words she just carved.

I wrote this reaallly fast today, so read at your own risk!

Creature(s): 
Firebird
Genre: Fantasy
Blurb: Helina, a firebird, faces the boy who had the gall to steal one of her feathers.



Helina

My feathers are not a gift, but a privilege. Of all the fools unlucky enough to cross my path, only a few are able to leave it, and fewer still with a feather. Streaming off me like flames, glimmering of garnet and gold, I give feathers only to those I find worthy--to those who have found me worthy. Perhaps they save me from the wiles of another; perhaps they fall to their knees in supplication, cherishing the beauty far too many choose to fear. It doesn’t quite matter to me--any human who manages to assuage my hatred for their kind is more than deserving of a feather, of my help.

The human beckoning me now is far from deserving.
