“Meroveus!” Councilman Cornelius Caecilius greeted informally stepping forward out of the shadow of his expensive Roman villa. “We are honored to host you once more! Welcome back to Castellum Menaporium!” Merovech stared down at the man, holding tightly to the reins of his horse. The Councilman was beginning to show his age. Care lines creased his brow and his hair was sprinkled with silver and white. It would seem that to him Rome was not being kind. The party behind Merovech shifted un...

Hello Artrift! If you're reading this, I wanted to test out the creative aspect (and I don't mean this insultingly ), by asking various users to try visualizing a character using some basic facts and back story given by myself. This would be a much appreciated endeavor , as I get to study various styles and technique with the finished results. Any medium would do, just as long as it's a sketched to your satisfaction, even colored. If anyone wants to take up the challenge, here's the character...

Semi-fantasy/Romance Disclaimer: Story takes place in an alternate reality. I mean no offense, this is written for fun. Here, France is once again ruled by a royal family-and is doing very well for it (of the Merovingian line). Sébastien was not worried about the small box waiting for him in his bed stand. He wasn't worried about how Caroline might feel about the ring. She had picked it out months ago, leaving not-so-subtle hints anytime she saw Sébastien. His lady had made it perfectly clear ...

Sébastien made his way down the familiar hallway. Here, all of the siblings had their rooms. He reached the desired door and knocked on the fine wood before letting himself into his younger brother's apartments. It wasn't long before Aidan, the second oldest sibling, popped his head into the presence chamber. "Hey Sebs, you know you can just come in," the young man said in an accent that wasn't quite French and wasn't quite Irish. He didn't wait for Sébastien, disappearing back into his s...

The men camped on the hill were loud. The drums echoed through the streets, their voices rang out in cheerful song hours after all of the shops had closed and taverns had closed their doors. Caecilia only wished she had a window to gaze out with the hopes of catching sight of the flames or hearing the music clearer. Instead, she was trapped in her bedroom, as she had been all night in the hopes of keeping her away from the guests. Nerva had never liked the men of the tribes, but he especially de...

Frank was short, but his personality's enormity more than made up for it. He was prim, proper, and old fashioned depending on who you asked. His style hearkened back to the golden era of punk: torn up clothing that exposed the ink painted across his skin. His eyes always shined as if the sun was trapped beneath the hazel haze of his eyes. His hair brushed his shoulders and perfectly framed his pale round face that was free of any signs of aging. Maybe some aspects of him would signal red flags f...
