Thorn's Published Stories:




*~Vira's Dagger~*
Extract

This was originally inspired by the Neopets' trading card of the same name, which my brother used to own. I was kind of expecting the picture from the card to be used as the image for this story, so I was pleasantly surprised when I got this pretty custom!

I still like this story, although there are many things about it that I know could have been done better. I actually got fan mail for it, which made me very happy and proud. Plus, the image was on the "New Features" page for the week part one was released. =D
That was awesome, too.


*~Drawings~*
Extract

I wrote this story in just a few hours, if I remember correctly. I was experimenting with a different style to my usual one, which I don't think went so well. However, I think this story is important because I tried so hard to make the characters seem believable, which helped my future writing a lot.

The Korbat character deliberately went unnamed. He's very much a servant, and probably a doorstep baby or something like that. So I'm never writing his back story. It'd be full of cliches. xD The image for "Drawings", while not a custom, is, in my opinion, beautiful. I love the Nightsteed. =)


*~Desolate~*
Extract

I read over this again recently. Although the ending seems a bit rushed, I still love this story! I reckon it's one of my better ones.

I first got the idea of writing this when looking at an image of the "Book of Sadness" trading card (why are all my stories inspired by trading cards? xD). Not surprisingly, that's also the image that the story was given when it was finally published, in the "Grey Day" issue of the Neopian Times.


*~Installation~*
Extract

This is probably my best published piece so far. Like everything, it's not perfect, but I still think I did pretty well. And it got me a fanfiction recommendation on a certain troping site! =D
(Thank you, Gauntkun, whoever you are!)

Anyway, I stuck a pretty lame "Red Versus Blue" reference in here, which was done in a very boring and not-clever-at-all way. See if you can find it! xD


*~A Thorn Amongst Roses~*
Extract

This took me even less time than "Drawings". I enjoyed writing it, but I don't actually like the story itself very much. To date, it is my only article. It's also the only published story in which I've mentioned myself or my pets.

The image is of Z-Far, the zafara from "Twisted Roses". This story was published in the "Grey Day" issue of the Neopian Times, the year after "Desolate". I got a grey meepit, which was cool, and who I have yet to name. I might call him "Dorian Gray", being the incredibly punny person that I am. xP


*~Willow~*
Extract

This story is one of my favourites. The inspiration came when I was walking home one day, by myself. Last year, in film club, we made a short film, and the line I wanted to be used wasn't. Thus, I came up with the beginning of this story.

I would have loved a custom of the protagonist, just to see what people imagine her to look like. However, this image is pretty good! It matches the feel of the story and, I suppose, allows the protagonist's appearance to be left to the imagination. =)


*~The Locker Room~*
Extract

I'm not a huge fan of this story, which was basically just written because I adore the Darigan Yooyuball team, and Kep especially. So, of course, I was super excited to see that the image I got for this story was of her! =D

Yeah. I'm part of the, what, 1% minority who don't support Darigan because of Shaye. xD


*~Transmogrifiers~*
Extract will come later. ^^
The title should probably give you some clue as to the nature of this story. It's a parody of my childhood love "Transformers" (and, the recent films. xP). It probably has the lightest tone of any of my stories. I mean, seriously. Read "Willow", and then this, and look at the difference. xD


*~Storm of Fortunes~*
Extract will come later. ^^
This is my second series, and it was so much fun to write! All of my characters have grown on me so much. This is, hopefully, the start of a collection of interlinked series. Next will probably be either "Lupi" or "Chasing Angels".
The title of this piece was stolen from a Shakespeare play. Bonus points if you know which one. xP

*~OTHER STUFFS~*


Lookadat, it's the protagonist from "Willow"! =D
My friend Kristy (Kristykimmy) made this for a birthday present.


Kristy, your awesomeness knows no bounds! This is Vira, as I portrayed her in "Vira's Dagger".
I'M SO HAPPIFUL, GUYS!!! =D
