  • Oof -we got some gnarly chapters up today! Particularly the second one, Chapter 36, I uh...may have gotten overexcited about the gore aspect, heh heh. They ran a bit longer than normal, which I apologize for, but they were hard to condense. Things get emotional, tense, and deliciously gruesome ~

    The Forsaken Race - The Hidden Truth: Chapter 36

  • My random nonsense of the day is an ode to underrated and underappreciated Disney classics that actually have great stories despite rambunctious kids never wanting to sit through them:

    "The Black Cauldron"
    "Treasure Planet"
    "The Sword In The Stone"

    If you have one, by all means, keep the list going ~

    Spoiler! :
    But so help me, if one of you puts "Frozen" in here... >.>
    LOL


    JazzElectrobass I love "The Sword In The Stone"!!

  • I have a general question for more experienced YWSers. I'm not planning anything (at least not anything that would manifest anytime soon lol), though I'm curious about something.

    Do you have to be a mod to host clubs or roleplays? I haven't explored much of either *yet* but whenever I do, it's a mod hosting, so I wasn't sure.


    Snoink Nope! :) Do it! :)
    Apr 14, 2024


    WeepingWisteria As Snoink said, you absolutely don’t have to be either to host a club or a RP ^^ But if you need help with either, us mods are here to answer any questions :] And probably join XDD

  • The hint I left in my latest post got me thinking...

    Spoiler! :
    Originally I was thinking of just a short story, then I thought about a collab if anyone's interested, but imagine a storybook roleplay (if it ever comes to fruition, it's far off, and I wouldn't host it alone -if at all lol) and each participant creates their own character based on a dark fantasy/gothic/steampunk/dystopian twist on a traditional fairytale character. The goal of the storybook...

    I have no idea, haven't gotten that far yet XD Bear in mind I'm also relatively new here…

    I think…about 5 months by now, is that still new?? Idk lol

    Anyway if something like this already exists, I have no idea and sorry if that's not original lol. If not though, what are your thoughts?


    Spearmint :eyes: i'm sure some people here can attest to my willingness to join any storybook... xD and that idea looks super cool!! :D
    Apr 11, 2024


    Ley As a storybook connoisseur, I’d definitely join this! This idea kind of reminds me of “Once Upon a Time” the TV show. Love the idea <3

  • Guys, I've been watching my brother play this gothic-steampunk game based on the Pinocchio story...Even if you're not a gamer, I highly recommend watching a stream of it, because the story is SOOO good, and so is the gameplay, and the soundtrack...

    Heck, the art and designs are the best part! Like, check out the cover art! it makes me want to remake a fairytale in a dark way as well XD

    OrabellaAvenue Oh actually I have seen a stream of it what the heck I never know video games
    Apr 12, 2024


    RavenAkuma Cool!! I thought it was such a good game ^^

    Spoiler! :
    I don't know if you saw the follow-up post, but it also gave me the idea that a "dark fantasy/gothic/steampunk/dystopian twist on classic fairytales" theme might be cool for storybook roleplay someday. Like each participant picks a fairytale character and makes them into a mercenary or a bandit, etcetera? But I'm also new to roleplays so I wasn't sure LOL What do you think?

  • Can I get your guys' opinions?

    Which Edgar Allan Poe quote do you like the best, in the spoiler box? Because he has so many good ones, I can't pick just one. The winner gets put in my signature ~

    (I would give you a reason why a Poe quote specifically, but I'll probably wind up writing a miniature essay of reasons I love Poe stories, Gothic literature, their inspirations on me, among other things lol)

    Spoiler! :
    1: "Is all that we see or seem but a dream within a dream?"

    2: "Quoth the Raven, Nevermore"

    3: “I am a writer. Therefore, I am not sane.”

    4: “Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality.”


    SkyVibes Imma be honest, I've heard of the guy but don't remember much abt him. However I love the 3rd one. The most real quote one can say lol.

  • They're up, they're up! Yay!!

    I was so excited to post these chapters! However, with much of this (Chapter 34 more than 33) being brand-new content, I am 99.9% sure that there are going to be fixes to make, so if you find yourself reading them, don't hesitate to criticize!

    The Forsaken Race - The Hidden Truth: Chapter 34


    ThekingsAdvisor Hey, I was reading your prologue for the Hidden Truth series, and I had a question. How did you get that cover, did you draw it yourself or did you pay someone to draw it? (Or is it AI which I don't think it is). The reason I am asking this is because I really want to have myself a cover for my book. By the way that prologue was pretty hype you are really good at worldbuilding.
    Apr 9, 2024


    RavenAkuma I'm glad you enjoyed the Prologue, thanks for reading it! ^^

    As for the cover, it was paid for. I think the guy who did mine is still working too, "moonwolf259" on Fiverr. If not, there are plenty of other great artists on there that could help you out ~

  • I'm so excited for this Monday ~

    TFR will be getting two updates, and the reason for this bonus chapter is special! This is a completely revamped point in the story. Lots more drama, lots more action, and a NEW YWS-EXCLUSIVE FIGHT! I'm nervous because this is almost completely different from the original point in the story, but at the same time, I'm so excited to share it!! And of course, don't be afraid to critique, especially on the fight scene. Others have had years to work themselves out, but this one is new, so I could use your help ~

    Now this teaser is a little bit spoiler-ey if you've read the last chapter, but if you don't mind and want a taste, here you are...

    Spoiler! :
    She was cut off by Timbur's menacing laugh, a sound laced with pure venom.

    "Go back, she said? Did I hear that right? Maggot, you're not crossing that stream again. As a matter of fact..." He unsheathed his machete, growling, "I'll make you regret ever crossing it to begin with."


    Kaia Sounds cool, Raven! Wishing you all the best on this project. I can see that you have put an incredible amount of time and effort into this. The result will be amazing, guaranteed.

    RavenAkuma I hope so! Thank you so much! :D
