Operation: Flying Fox (A L.O.K. Fanfic)

This started as a story request by my friend, Zeal, for our friend’s birthday (Yarred) and was originally intended to be ~8,000 words long; that was the maximum word count I felt comfortable working with for these types of stories. I was really excited to write this, since it took place in the ATLA/LOK universe and we were all very familiar with the source material. So after brushing up on the source material and planning out the story, I started to write. And write. And write. And write….And write…

Next thing I knew, I had my first story that would be brought to completion that’s over 10K words long! The grand total came out to 11,390 words! After all’s said and done, I’m so happy to have reached that milestone in my writing abilities. I’ll be honest, though, I kinda wanted to keep going with the story, adding more plot lines, characters, locations, etc. But most of the time, the best ending isn’t one that’s wrapped up nice and neat in a little package; things can be left open-ended, whether intentional or not.

Again, to Zeal and Yarred, I apologize that this ended up being a month overdue; I hope you guys still like it, as well as anyone else who decides to read this.

Bear in a Box

This was originally supposed to be for the Iron Pen competition for FM 2016, but I was a tad late on finishing this before the deadline. Still, I decided to finish it up and quickly go over it so I can share it with you guys.

Yes, this was a challenge. It had to be 1,000 words or less (this clocks in at 928), feature a character that’s a native species to Minnesota or feature the theme of migration, and include the “secret ingredient” in a prominent way. The “secret ingredient” was called: My secret origin. Even though the contest is long over by now, I still tried to keep to the guidelines for my own benefit.

Hope you enjoy! Continue reading
