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>

2009-04-07 [Linderel]: *lubs on* <3

2009-04-14 [The Black Cat in Your Path]: Ah! *rubs chin as she pokes around*

2009-04-17 [losthero]: Hmm...what if the story is not completed?

2009-04-17 [Chimes]: From Nominate a Story(read it :P):
5. If you are nominating a short story, we ask that it is complete. We will, however, feature unfinished chaptered works.

But it depends on the story too... and chapter lengths.

2009-04-17 [losthero]:
In the What is This section

"You can see previous featured stories on the featured story archive."

Needs to be changed to

"You can see previous featured stories on the featured story archives."

2009-04-17 [SilverFire]: Nop, there's only one archive so what they have now is right.

2009-04-17 [Chimes]: Why? It's only one archive. :P

2009-04-17 [Chimes]: What Silvie said.

2009-04-17 [losthero]: However if you click on the wiki link it takes you to an empty page.

2009-04-17 [Linderel]: That's because there haven't been any featured stories yet!

2009-04-17 [losthero]: Okay I was getting it confused with the one at the bottom of this wiki page thank you for the clarification.

2009-04-17 [Linderel]: ...hang on. Oh yeah. I see what you mean, now.

2009-04-17 [losthero]: I thought I was making sense :P

2009-04-17 [The Black Cat in Your Path]: BOO! *pops up outta nowhere and waves* 8D

2009-04-17 [Chimes]: I now know what you mean. :P Lin poked me about it.

2009-04-26 [Lady of Lore]: Do we have any kind of disclaimer/warning that says that you can't steal someone else's story? (Just because it would be sad to have someone's great work published by another person)

2009-04-26 [Chimes]: On the rules page it says stuff about plagiarism.

2009-04-27 [Lady of Lore]: Ah, does that extend to copyrighting?

2009-04-27 [Chimes]: What do you mean? O.o

2009-04-27 [The Black Cat in Your Path]: Yes. If it's been copyrighted, then copying it would be considered plagiarism. It's illegal, so I don't think we have anything to worry about here. :)

2009-04-27 [Chimes]: Yeah: My question is... if it means something different to that... what do you mean? :P
