Skye Posted April 14, 2004 Share Posted April 14, 2004 [FONT=Franklin Gothic Medium][SIZE=2][COLOR=Orange]Okay. I wrote a story, and I'm going to put it up a bit at a time. Criticism would be helpful, and praise is good, too. Here we go![/COLOR] [COLOR=Red]It was dark. And cold. And the whole room smelled of chemicals and plastic. Large blue orbs blinked as they adjusted to the light. From the center of the room came an eerie pulsing glow. It came from a large tube - a large clear tube. The tube was filled with a green liquid, and curled in the middle was a ball of feathers. The tube was about three feet wide, five feet high, and made of glass and metal. The blue eyes moved slowly towards the tube, moving around tables, cabinets, and other empty tubes. The eyes made it to the tube, and a small, webbed, four fingered hand reached out to touch the tube. The light from the liquid bathed the frail-looking hand, wrist, and arm. Its skin was a white-green, pale, and see through. The creature moved closer, and soon its whole body was touched by the light. The creature had pale skin onits whole body, but it became less see through as it went along its body. It had an oval head, huge eyes, and no mouth. Its ears were elf-like, pointed, but became spiked, and webbed. It had four limbs, and sat like a dog. The hands and feet were webbed, and four fingered and toed. The fish-like body ended in a long, powerful tail that ended in a fin that was a light blue. The glow became brighter, and the creature stood, a full 6 feet tall. It pressed close to the tube, its huge blue eyes glowing and blinking. The bundle of feathers uncurled, and a body like the creatures emerged. It was smaller, about two feet long, hand a feathered tail, a beak, and no ears. It was more bird-like than fish-like. The large eyes of the creature - a Taa'nni - blinked, and it whirled around, silent. Its tail touched nothing. Another click, and the door swung open. A young red-headed woman stepped through the door.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
