The Legend of Dragon LakeThe Legend of Dragon LakeOnce upon a time, not far from here there was a village. This village was like any other, it had its good folk and its bad folk, though far more of the good. But what made this village special was it's friendship with the creatures that lived in the big cave just to the north. You see, the cave and the lake at its entrance were inhabited by dragons.Wise, friendly, and very, very old, these dragons had a long standing treaty with the people of the village and that treaty was as much based on trust and respect as it was on need. While the dragons were possessors of magic and were very strong indeed they counted on the villagers to keep their lair secret and safe from the outside world. They knew that if others found out of their existence that they would become a hunted species.

My Life With Josh Part OneSo I've always been an ordinary kind of girl. Average or, thereabouts. At twenty-one I haven't acquired any unusual anecdotes about myself, and my neurosis are no more or less complicated and strange than anyone else my age.

There's only so much phony smiling that I can do before my face falls off.College is a struggle for me, not because I'm stupid, though air-headed I really am intelligent I swear, no I'm just a procrastinator. A big, indecisive procrastinator. My two years at the local junior college may just take me until I'm ninety. I'm in that rather cliché "trying to find myself" stage. I wish it were over. I don't mind being "normal" but I hate being cliché! I need to find me already damnit! Moving on.It was the mid
The Legend of Sandalwood HighThe Legend of Sandalwood High SchoolAs retold by Alanna Gunrack During a time long, long ago when Nosetape and Highlighters still walked the earth, there came to be a great evil. It was called Sandalwood High School. Everything with evil origin seemed to spew from this place. When its name was mentioned women screamed, men fled, and teenagers cursed their alarm clocks. Its main weapons were things with strange names that tormented all adolescence: FCAT, MLST, HSCT, PSAT, and SAT. There came a time when the most feared Generals of Sandalwood threatened the very existence of the teen world. These terrifying individuals were: Mr. Waters, Mr. Gobble, Coach Hicks, and the most terrible General of all the Arch Communist-Nazi Dr. Walker! They flooded Sandalwood teens with uniforms and stale chips. No one was safe, until a band of heroes so brave and so crazy took the task t
