Yes they do Tiki.
Well now I know where the holes in my dwarf lilly plant came from
*glares at rabbit snail*

And the adult trapdoors knocked over my decor and somehow uprooted my plants

Who's your fav Mythbuster?
I know what you mean. I have this idea for a book brewing about in my head. Its essentially a coming of age, fantasy, drama about a shy reclusive girl, who finds a beaten up, abused old nag of a horse, and rescues it from its abysmal life as part of a traveling carnival pony ride.

Its when she is riding it, that it suddenly turns into a magnificent golden palomino, sprouts snow white wings, and becomes airborne. The girl then is taken on a whirlwind adventure and finds out that the horse is actually the princess of a kingdom in another realm, full of magical creatures and such, that is currently under the rule of a tyrannical and evil sorceress, bent on taking every last ounce of magical essence from the realm and hoarding it for herself. To add to things, the girl is joined by a handsome elven warrior from the realm, who is in search of a mysterious, and somewhat mythical, power that not even the evil sorceress can harness and that could in fact, be the key to releasing the kingdom from her dark suppression.

I won't give away the ending, as I don't really know what it is myself yet, and I don't know if I should make it one long book, or more than one. If I do make it a series, I don't know how many books to make it.

Heck, I don't even have a title for it.

Another story I have in my head is about a war torn, almost post apoctolyptic world, where the main character is a girl living at an orphanage, with the only key to her past being a silver necklace bearing a odd pendant of a horn. She then begins to have strange dreams of flying and when she awakes, she finds snow white feathers around her bed and the nearby window open. She then realizes that she wasn't just dreaming, but actually flying, with a pair of gleaming white wings keeping her aloft.

She then decides to run away from the orphanage, taking the mysterious pendant with her, and decides to seek out the truth to her mysterious past. Soon she finds a mysterious boy, who also has wings and learns that she might be a nephilim, or a hybrid offspring of a an angelic being and a mortal woman. They go off together and eventually she also learns that her otherworldly parent is none other than the arch angel, Gabriel, and that he left with her, his magical horn in the form of the pendant, which, when awakened, calls all the other angels and ushers in peace throughout the land. Apparently, its up to the girl and the other nephilim to find out how to unlock the horn and blow it, to save the entire world from the evil Lucifer and his many demonic minions.

Either sound like a best seller?

EDIT: My fave mythbuster? I can't just pick one.

Crabby, I'd read your stories.

I can't pick one either. They're all so crazy in so many good ways.

That reminds me of my all time favorite Mythbusters one liner.

"Come, Silent Walrus! Let us storm the castle!!" as said by Adam Savage during the "Ninja" special.

Crabby you deffinatly have your own style, I see a lot of hope type stories in those. They would probably be best sellers among teens and young adults.

Mine have a darker nature to them, at their core they're still fantasy but darker. My inspiration was of course Tolkien, like many others, and thus my stories always have the happy endings you would expect albeit often bittersweet. Such is the case with the prequal to my book "The Eye of Sorba" which concerns the hero Krin who sought vengence for the death of his brother Siege, where at the end he defeats his foe but is so beaten and exausted that after he declairs victory to his men he falls dead.

Of course I'm going to have to rename the series to something other than "The Chronicles of Twilight" thank you hollywood. >.<*

Anyways I like your premise and expanded would make nice book! :)

Half my biochem project is talking about zombies. Good thing I know what I'm talking about... Yikes. Teacher said she's excited to read about it at least.

I used to write when I was little, but I gave up on that. If I could do anything I'd go to India and help people and elephants. Lol. So cheesy.
