Christmas Aisle Inspiration

By:

Inspiration comes from strange places

Where do you get your ideas?
This is a question I am frequently asked. I imagine that some of you reading this have also been asked this same question. Most of the time, the only answer I care to give is a shrug of the shoulders and the common ‘I dunno, just happens.’

Now it just so happens, there is a specific location that seldom fails to get my creative motor running. I will take pictures of the things that I find in this location with my cell phone. Sometimes I refer back to it as I am writing, sometimes not. I felt I would like to share this inspiration with you, as well as putting the submissions inspired by it together in this codex.

Thank you, as always, for reading.

Cristata By: Scrasamax ( Lifeforms ) Third Kingdom - Any

In the bleak midwinter frosty wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron, Water like a stone; Snow had fallen, snow on snow, Snow on snow, In the bleak midwinter, Long ago.

Frosty the Snowman. Is a fairytale they say. He was made of snow. But the children know. How he came to life one day…

I added a bit of my Christmas inspiration from the WINTER quest. I hope you don't mind the intrusion but I think it fits.

An interesting thought.

       By: ephemeralstability

The city of Nausopol is built on stilts. Lots of very sturdy stilts and butresses, of course, because it rises about five hundred feet from the ocean. Even the most terrific of storms is only heard in the city as a distant cacophony of blasts as waves strike the solid stonework fathoms below. It has never been attacked because of its isolation and impregnability.

It's not a place for the faint-hearted: vertigo and sea-sickness are not desirable traits. But when you are standing in the middle of the city there is no way you could tell that you were standing above an ocean, separated only by a gulf of air and a few stones.

A thousand steps lead down from Nausopol to the floating docks. These docks are pitch-coated wooden and can be raised by winches during squalls. Trade with other cities and countries is good: Nausopol is built over a sunken atoll whose minerals are still mined by divers, and it was from this that it originally derived its wealth.

But the principal method of getting to and from the city is by riding the giant sea-eagles which have been captured and bred for that very reason.
