** Images For Use By Upgraded+ Only **

*Heart*  We all have our favorites.  Maybe it was something uplifting, or something that moved us to tears.  Maybe the characters stuck with us and still linger in our memory.  Or, perhaps it sent a chill up our spine.  Each of us are different, and we all have our own reasons.  Though this list is sure to grow, these are some of my favorites across WDC.  I hope that you will stop by and let these talented authors know what you think!  *Heart*

The Classic  [E]

I found this piece nestled within Stardust's port and fell in love with it.  It speaks of love and loss, and how sometimes, we wish we could go back and rewrite the story of our lives.

The Trinity Falls Series   [E]
The Trinity Falls Series

It's no secret that I am a huge fan of Mara's work.  With her usual, unique flair, Mara explores one cop's decision to break free from the force and extract justice of his own.  Packed full of gripping suspense and laugh-out-loud humor, this is a story with something for everyone.

The Interview  [E]

A very poignant piece about history and what can happen if it is forgotten.  Fyn's story about the interview will leave many shocked and left to wonder how this could be...how this could happen.  An excellent item!

The tone and style of this piece blew me away.  The words here can be interpreted many ways, but this is one piece that felt as if it were written about me.  Every once in a while, we stumble across something that speaks to our soul and revels those dark secrets.  Check it out!

This is an adorable story told through a poem about a mouse.  We see the world through his eyes as the house's occupants decide he is no longer welcome to share their abode.  This humorous piece shows what can happen when one takes the little things in life too seriously!

Fate on a Monday Morning  [13+]
Monday, June 25, 2001.
by The StoryMistress

We all know StoryMaster and StoryMistress have a heart of gold.  As a fellow animal and cat lover, I found the story of how Stevie came into their lives to be an emotional and moving tail...err...tale.  One moment of our time can make all the difference in the world, and sometimes that choice is a matter of life and death.

Frozen Angel  [GC]
A missing child turns up dead... fictional account on a true crime that happened Nov 2006
by Olivia

Oliva tends to focus on the dark, painful aspects of life that many of us like to pretend don't exist.  This is a powerful and gripping tale of a child lost in the system, a harrowing story of abuse and the silent victims many tend to overlook.

My 1st place pick.  James had me on the edge of my seat with this hair-raising story of one man's experience in the woods.  It brought to mind the legends about the infamous Jersey Devil and left me with chills.  With his flavorful style and stunning imagery, this will grip a reader until the end.

This story took 2nd place in my horror contest and several bold leaps.  Jerry stunned, enthralled, and repulsed me with this engaging read.  He's a brave author with a vast amount of talent.  The tale centers around a strange loner with an unsettling penchance for the dead.  This story is not for those weak of stomach, but worth every second of squirming!

Penance  [18+]

3rd place winner in my horror contest.  SoCal wrote a gripping tale that both disturbs and yanks at the reader's heartstrings.  One woman's desperate attempt to cure her husband's cancer leads to devestating consequences for them both.  Her nightmare is unending.  An impressive story written by a great author.

Nomar is one of my favorite horror writers.  Here, he threw unimaginable terror my way as I read about the escapades of two homeless teens.  A story not for the faint of heart or easily frightened, this talented author shows why sometimes it is better to deal with the lot we are given in life than to yearn for something more.

After reading Lee's story, you will never look at this nursery rhyme again.  This talented author wrote a nail-biting tale that takes the reader from an an 1800's serial killer's POV, to a gripping account of how his crimes are unearthed two centuries later.  Both emotional and terrifying, this story holds a little something for everyone.

Jennifer's tale of a vengeful man's mindset is both haunting and disturbing.  He's fed up with the world and knows right where to hit people to hurt them the most.  This is one story that will stick with a reader and make us hug our children a bit tighter as we scramble to think who we might have wronged in the past.
