wait a minute, if Kiba is age-regressed then hows he able to have had children?

I believe that's only the Metamor Keep Kiba, where as the Overgrown Lands Kiba isn't.

Overgrown Lands? wha?

It's a setting Donnie made and has written it, but he's never posted a story from it. I think this Kiba comes from RPs in the setting, but I could be wrong (and likely am).

C'est fini!

As a bonus, I finally have a name for the world that contains Lonely Howling and most of my other stories; it is now called the Alibi verse.

Hm.....very surreal. Very Surreal. I don't really know if any other word works here. A lot of talk of the "between" world and such and such an idea, which is very nice. But I don't seem to be connecting with the characters all that much. In fact, this concept of the "between" seems to be the main character in both these stories, rather than the characters you pretend to follow. I see this a little bit in the first story, and a lot more in the second. So, I might recommend either giving us more about the characters we can relate to, or simply making the concept of "between" the main character. (I know its a bit abstract, but you can handle it right? How's that for a recommendation of a story? Make a CONCEPT the main character of a story. ]:)I think you can handle it.)

A young boy adventures through a mostly unexplored part of the woods behind his house. To his surprise, the woods aren't exactly uninhabitied, as the boy runs into one of the more smart residents of the woods.

Someone seeks wisdom and knowledge, and so makes the discovery of a lifetime, but perhaps some things are best left unknown.

Take this where you will, the reason this thing perhaps shouldn't have been discovered has many possibilities. Maybe there is a guardian of some sort, maybe the truth is horrific in some way, or perhaps the knowledge is just too tempting a path to percieved power.

Wow. I'm really speechless. I was going to bring in a quote from that story to show a point or something, but I would just use the entire story as a quote. Happy Arctic Fox

This story is powerful because it connects with a common problem in modern society. Rather than being about fanciful worlds, it's about a very REAL kid with a very REAL problem. He's frustrated by his parents, and by how apart they are, (they might be divorced soon, due to their differences,) so he goes up on the roof to draw as an escape from their conflicts.

Quote
He has drawn the mountains, not as they are, but as he wishes they were

Nice.

Um, back to my point.

Quote
He turns back east, to the lights of downtown.  He has never drawn this view before; has felt it would be somehow wrong to mix his motherís art with his fatherís.

ďDonít you think they need to mix a little more?Ē

The cat on the roof represents the character's unconscious mind, ( obviously, Happy Arctic Fox) and what he's been avoiding for all this time. He has this idea in his head that the world would be better if his parents were just SEPARATE, rather than fighting all the time.

But, he comes to realize that his parents' fighting is actually.....(wait, you're going a different direction with this.)

Er....ending, conclusion, what? You end with him drawing his "mother's and father's styles" together, and the cat (his unconscious!) departing. But what does this tell him to do? Stop trying to separate his parents? He seems to still dislike his parents' arguments.

Hm.....

Great story. The emotional content didn't feel at all weighed down by the imagery and scenery. Happy Arctic Fox

((As for your next story, my recommendation: He's a normal kid, but without warning he starts doing UNSPEAKABLE behaviors, such as doing his chores, finishing his homework, and SHARING WITH HIS SIBLINGS. How will these acts of ANARCHY stand in his household?  Surprised Arctic Fox))
