About The Featured Story:

What is this?

The Featured Story is exactly that, a place to feature stories. It was designed with the same principle as the Featured Art, Featured Wiki and the Daily Poem: to show off the creative genius of Elftown's members. There are so many great stories out there that don't get the praise that they deserve; the Featured Story will hopefully be a remedy for that.

Feel free to nominate a story; if it follows the rules and we like it, we will feature it. A story will be featured twice a month and the writer will get some well-deserved attention as well as a shiny new badge. You can see current and previous stories on <URL:featured_story.html>.

How do I nominate a story?

To nominate a story you can go to nominate a story. There you will find the rules and ways of submitting a story.

If you have any questions or concerns you can message [Nioniel] or [Stephen].


Current Feature:


The featured story for 15th September 2014 is brought to you by [Kestrelfeather].
"This planet…we are not alone on it…in the shadows of night, we see forms, apparitions. When I try to look closely, they fade away. This planet…It is my belief that it is not meant for us. I think we should leave. There is a darkness rising on Arjuna.

It takes an unusually high mental capacity to ignore the rambling thoughts of the Collective and focus only on the voice you want to hear. For me, a biologist currently trying to find salvation for the human race, that one voice I search for is often the root of all life: the Earth spirit. There are billions upon billions of thoughts in the Collective. Of reproduction, of love, of war…every life on Earth sends energy into it. Until recent decades, human kind, Homo sapiens, didn’t have the ability to tap into it. Being bipedal and with advanced abilities, the last step in human evolution was of the mind. It took thousands of years, but eventually select humans developed the ability that for so long, man had been lacking.
I am part of the Collective, one of the Listeners, the first human ever to hear the voice of the Earth itself. Although my grades in ‘Silent’ school weren’t spectacular, at a young age my Listening abilities surpassed any other humans’ in the world. At age twelve, I was pulled from school, isolated from the other children. I was the only one in my class with Listening ability, answering middle-school level biology exam questions with complex diagrams and exact genetic codes. "

We hope you enjoy reading this captivating story! <img:stuff/aj/61513/1267019305.png><img:stuff/aj/61513/1267019305.png>

2009-08-23 [Duke Devlin]: Oh right. XD Sorry. :P

2009-08-23 [losthero]: No problem! :P

2009-09-14 [*OGD*]: So, how often will the feature story be changed?

2009-09-14 [Chimes]: I'm updating it tomorrow.

We kept forgetting XD But we're changing it 2 times per month now, the more nominations we get the more often we will update it.

2009-09-15 [*OGD*]: Awesome!

2010-10-09 [SilverFire]: *prod*

2010-10-09 [Chimes]: It'll be updated on the 15th. :]

2010-10-09 [SilverFire]: You missed the 30th! *wags finger* Or have you gone to once per month now?

2010-10-09 [Chimes]: Lin forgot :P (we take it in turns) It's my turn next.

2010-10-16 [SilverFire]: *cough*

2010-10-16 [Chimes]: Yeah. Totally my fault. :/ My short term memory is shot right now - I wrote in my diary so I would remember and still I forgot. I fail at life. :/ I'll update it now.

2011-07-05 [SilverFire]: *prod*

2011-07-07 [Tekkon KinKreet]: not that i mind the pr my story is getting... but shouldn't there be a new one now? just curious.... should i go story hunting naow?

2011-07-07 [Linderel]: You should always be story hunting. As for the lack of update - sorry, I think we're all having a case of real life again. <_< Maybe we'll just wait to update on the 15th and get the schedule straightened for a while.

2012-03-31 [Alexi Ice]: Oh yay ^^ I'm being featured!

2013-11-29 [perfumed ignition]: How do I go about nominating a story? I went to nominate a story and it suggested messaging "[Linderel], [Chimes] or [Nioniel]" or posting in a dead forum. I messaged [Chimes], only to be told that she no longer had anything to do with featured story. I messaged [Nioniel] next and was informed that she too no longer had anything to do with this wiki. So I messaged [Linderel], but she never responded. That was several weeks ago. And from the looks of things, she hasn't done anything with featured story in over two years, so she probably doesn't consider herself a part of this either. I posted in the dead forum, but I honestly doubt anyone saw it or ever will see it, considering it's a ghost town there.

So now what do I do if I have nominations? :(

2013-11-29 [iippo]: Oh junk, you're right. Sorry. I think this whole thing needs some sorting...
Thank you. I'll get on this.

2014-07-17 [Linderel]: Belated apologies! I really dropped the ball on, well, everything. But it seems that this feature is waking up now. :)

2014-07-17 [Stephen]: Life is too good at disrupting non-life related things, in cases like this. <img:44166_1164145230.gif>

2014-07-17 [Linderel]: Aye. :(

2015-07-07 [freeflyingpress]: nice! Love the selections!
