Bio:
I like when it rains so hard I can hear it on the roof. I like the smell of skin. I like music that makes me feel something.

Above all, I respect life. That's all you need to know.

Edowill by Ophelia Rated: R [Reviews - 0]
Summary: In the time of Edowill's greatest peril, a Prophet will emerge to seize control of fate's wheel. This Prophet have the power to either save Edowill or destroy it.

The continent of Edowill is in a time of change, and Fate’s Wheel is now spinning faster than ever before. The Adrevian Empire is expanding like a shadow over Edowill, spreading war and fire. Before long, Adrevia has gained control of all of Edowill but for two countries: the icy and mountainous Travasia in the far North, and the heavily forested Olovia and in the East.

But there is a threat even greater than the Adrevian Empire, and only The Prophet knows of the blood-red sails that push the thousands of warships through the churning Grey Sea towards a war-splintered Edowill. Unity must be achieved, but at what price? This is the story of a world in change, a time when anything could happen, when the smallest actions can change the course of history. These are characters from a new generation morphed by power, torn apart by violence, and choosing between love and duty.

Poetry by Ophelia Rated: G [Reviews - 6]
Summary: This is a collection of unrelated poems that I've written- I plan to keep adding more. There are a few dark ones, but it's not all crappy angsty stuff, I promise. I try to balance it out with some lighter ones. Hope you enjoy, and please leave some reviews!

Summary: 16-year-old elf Elwen was abandoned as a baby and grew up on a remote farm in northern Gondor, raised by humans who treated her cruelly. One night she is cast out into the snow to perish, until a brother she doesn't remember rescues her. Captured by orcs and held in Saruman's tower, she slowly unweaves a web of secrets, discovering why it was critical for her to be abandoned, who her family really was, and what powerful and terrifying talents she has inherited from a mother she never knew. Elwen quickly discovers that she is a mere pawn to dark powers beyond her control- unless she can do anything about it.

Vanity by Ophelia Rated: PG-13 [Reviews - 0]
Summary: What is truly evil? The death of Lorenzo de' Medici has sent Florence of the late 1400's into turmoil. Religious fervor and a population's terror ferment as one girl, imprisoned by her family's vanity, discovers more about herself and her brothers than she should. The result is dangerous.



This is a short story I wrote, set in Florence after the death of Lorenzo de' Medici (late 1400's.) A lot of research and effort went into this piece, so I'd really appreciate some feedback. This was written as part of a project to examine sibling relationships, so be sure to check out "Clara," another short story I've written as part of the same project.
