“Come in,” Persephone says, holding the door to her study open. “Normally I prefer to meet at the clearing, it’s quieter there, but I have some work I need to get done.” She smiles at me. “I hope you don’t mind if I work while we talk.”

I smile at her. “It’s not a problem.”

Trying not to show how nervous I feel I step into the office and can’t stop myself from looking around. Opposite the door is a large desk, with a pile of papers at one end, with two bookcases either side of it. For a moment I study book titles, before stepping further into the room. To my left is a large window and patio door, leading out into the large garden; to my right there are pictures on the wall of Persephone and her family.

“Make yourself at home.” Persephone steps around me, startling me slightly as I’d almost forgotten she was there. “Hades will bring you a hot drink if you need it.”

I still have the end (I hope it’s the end at least) of a cold and it doesn’t surprise me that Persephone noticed. “Thank you.”

Smiling, she shakes her head. “I should be thanking you for listening to us. It’s not everyone we can connect with and having someone willing to write our stories is… well, for some of us it’s more important than others, so I’m glad that you’re around.”

Blushing, I sit in the seat closest to me as Persephone makes her way around the desk. “It’s my pleasure.”

“I know it can’t be easy. We aren’t all patient.”

“Yeah, I got that with Lucifer.”

Persephone nods. “He’s had a hard time of it. Once you’re viewed as one thing it can be very hard to get anyone to see the truth.” She pulls a piece of paper towards her, picks up one of the pens she has laying on the desk, and begins writing. “Now, what was it you wanted to talk about.”

“Your myths.”

Raising an eyebrow she glances up at me, looking a little mischievious, before focusing on her work once more. “Which ones?”

“Shall we start with the pomegranates?”

“Ah, the pomegranate that meant I had to stay in the underworld during the winter.” She laughs. “That didn’t happen. I almost wish it did, it was a beautiful piece of symbolism, but Hades and I met thanks to Hecate. She thought he could help me with dealing with the deaths I often view in the vision pool, because he’s always been a death god, and we got on well. When I fell in love with him I had difficulty convincing him that we should attempt a relationship, because I was a lot younger than him, but eventually he gave in to my arguments and we’ve been together ever since.”

“So, there were no pomegranates?”

“I do like pomegranates, but one was never a part of our courtship.”

“Okay.” I look down at the notes I’ve brought with me. “How about enchanted face cream?”

“Now that is something I used to make and Aphrodite did use it, but Aphrodite never was as jealous as the writers made her out to be in the myths. Psyche was actually one of Aprhodite’s mortal friends, until she was made into a deity by Zeus.”

“Mortals can be made into deities?”

“Yes, but only after they’ve died and only under specific circumstances.” Persephone looks up at me. “It doesn’t happen very often, so it might be worth exploring in a story.”

“Maybe I will.” I smile at her. “So the face cream?”

She turns her attention back to her work. “Yes, the cream. Deities are immortal, but that doesn’t mean that we’re impervious to all problems. The cream was for a skin condition that sometimes flares up. Aphrodite was always said to be the most perfect of us all, because she is the Goddess of love, as though they forgot that love isn’t about being perfect. Love is often more about compromise and understanding. Aphrodite is the first to admit that she’s really nothing like the Goddess so often seen in Greek mythology.”

“Is it hard to have stories told about you that are wrong?”

“Sometimes. Mostly we’re just grateful that people do still remember us and that we have a chance to put some of the stories right.” She shrugs. “Although there are still those who want us to be what they have in their mind, so they don’t listen.”

I nod. “How about painting flowers?”

Persephone stops for a seconds. “Ah, yes, that was a part of one of the myths. I painted flowers as my Spring incarnation Kore. I do actually paint, when I have time, but it’s different now that I’m a full time deity.” She sighs, writing again. “The majority of my time is spent working and any spare time I have is spent with my family.”

A noise from outside the room distracts both of us. I look at Persephone and she looks back at me, smiling. “It’s one of the puppies.”

“What’s it like having three headed puppies around?”

“Come with me.” She stands, putting her pen on the desk. “I’ll take you to meet them.”

Nodding, I also stand. I can’t say no to the offer, because I love dogs, so I let Persephone lead me out of the room and into the hallway where one of the puppies is busy chewing on a plant with all three of its heads.

“That’s Panteleimon.” She makes her way over to him and gently detaches his heads, one at a time, from the plant. “He’s gorgeous, but a total pain.”

Noticing me, the puppy bounds over and I kneel down to pet him. Having the three head makes it almost feel as though there are three dogs there who want me to scratch behind their ears, but it’s only one, and that is the strangest thing. I hear a door close, Persephone going back to her work while I’m distracted by Panteleimon.

Today has been spent transferring almost all of the bonus material I’ve posted, not including the character profiles as they need a lot more work, to the wiki. I still need to categorise things and make links between pages, but that’s something I can do another day.

View it here. There is a forum there too, so I hope that gets some use.

Within the fae there are those with the ability to travel through time, which isn’t used as much as it could be due to worries about how their presence might affect the time they’re visiting. However there have been times when certain groups have used this ability to their advantage.

Time travelling, generally, isn’t dangerous, but it can be if the user doesn’t have a good understanding of the magic they’re working with. This becomes more of a problem on Earth when the fae arrive, because some of the mixed-bloods begin their studies but leave before they are completed which leads to an incomplete understanding of the magic and other never find the school but realise that they have the ability to travel through time. Willow, the Queen at the time of the fae’s arrival, does her best to make sure that as many people as possible are trained, even though the majority of the elders do what they do best – bury their heads in the sand.

The thirteen families also have time travellers within their midst, which has more of an effect on Aerith than it does the whole web. Aerith becomes the home of a large group of time travellers, who do their best to affect the world so it become the way they want it to, even though this is much harder than it seems to be. They have their rules, but people often break them, which also affects Aerith.

Some of natural doors around the web can also send someone travelling through time. The majority don’t even know that’s what happened to them, because it’s not normally the long term doors so they often assume that they’ll never get back home anyway and do their best to make a new life wherever they are.

February is going to be the first month this year where I focus on posting bonus material, because working on the World Walkers collection last year has made me realise exactly how much there is still to work on. I have fourteen different collections (which may go down to thirteen with what I now know about the ‘Astral’ World) and every one of them seems to keep growing. With every story I write, with every piece of bonus material, I learn something new about my collections, something new about the worlds I write about, and it feels like it’s a job that will never end. It’s something that is both wonderful and terrifying at the same time, because I want to write for the rest of my life so knowing how large the job I’ve set myself is makes me happy but at the same time it can feel like I’ll never get eveything done.

Even with all the work I did on the World Walkers there’s still much more to do. I have the worlds, but I have very little else, so I know that the next thing on the list is naming continents, cities, towns, rivers, and who knows what else. This isn’t something I only have to do for the World Walkers collection either. Every single one of the collections needs more fleshing out, because even though I thought of all these things before I started I didn’t do as much work as I probably should have done, but then I made my decision based on the feeling that I either needed to do something with my writing or find something else. At that point I knew I wanted people to read what I was writing, although I never honestly thought I was a good enough writer to have people actually want to read my fiction. So I jumped in at the deep end with some basic ideas and started going. There are things I wrote based on ideas that changed very quickly as I started exploring my worlds.

The Donor House was, when I started writing, going to have been open for decades when Morgan entered, but then things changed when I wrote the ‘Beginning of the House’. Everything I’ve done has ended up being an exploration of worlds I began with maybe one idea that probably came to me in a dream. One of the early ideas I had, because I wanted to be able to combine all the ideas I had at the time, was of someone who got trapped in their dreams and travelled through a number of different places within their dreams. There’s every possibility I might even start that at some point. I still have other stories that I want to start and post, but I know I need to focus on what I’m doing right now.

One of the advantages I’ve found with writing in so many different collections is how easy it can be to work on them. I don’t have a problem with writer’s block now, because I can leave one collection behind to work on another one if I’m having trouble, and then I often find it easy to go back to what I was doing before.

I enjoy writing the bonus material. I enjoy exploring the worlds I’ve created. Something I have been thinking about is writing a travel guide to each of my collections, because I think it would be interesting, but I need to know more about the worlds first. There are some that are simpler than others, like the world of the Donor House, but the entire world was changed when people realised there were vampires and I need to work out exactly how that happened.

I do have some lists of bonus material I want to write and other people want me to write, but I’m open to ideas at all times. Have a question about why or how something happened? Prompt me. Want me to write about a specific world, or setting, or learn more about the races of any world? Let me know. I try to write what people want to see when I can, so ask away.

Welcome!

It’s a pleasure to meet you. I’m K. A. Webb, a crowdfunded writer with a love of creating fantasy worlds, and this is the place to start if you’re new to my work. Here I’ll introduce you to all of my collections, my way of crowdfunding (because all crowdfunders work a little differently), and hopefully make things much easier for you than they would be if I hadn’t written this post.

Currently I write fiction for fourteen different collections. Some I write more for than others, because they’re favourites with certain readers, but it’s easy to get me to write more for your favourite collections. I have regular prompt sessions, as well as a prompt page for prompts outside of sessions; you can sponsor a collection so I’ll post more fiction;  you can rent a setting, adopt a character, or create your own ebook, and have fiction emailed to you. The majority of them are fantasy, because I enjoy world building, but my main focus is always the characters I’m writing. That’s a part of the reason I enjoy writing AUs and crossovers.

Most of my collections have been a work in progress for nearly a decade now. There was a time, before I started crowdfunding, when I thought my work wasn’t good enough. It’s possible I still would now if I didn’t have readers who tell me that they enjoy what they’re reading, but I started crowdfunding without knowing if I would succeed or fail, and that was terrifying. I have no idea now how I convinced myself – I’m just thankful I did. People do read my work, although I have no idea how many, and I’m glad I took the plunge.

The oldest collection I write fiction for is the Donor House collection. I started writing the first story for this collection when I was still at school, in a way that could almost be seen as writing serial fiction, because I used to write a bit each night and then my friends used to read it the next day. That was when I realised how much I enjoyed having an audience. Now my focus is the Donor House, which is set locally to me, although I do also write for the world outside the house too. In time I want to begin writing for the two other houses that are in the UK and I would love to have a couple of houses in other countries. At the moment I’m writing fiction from all over the timeline, including from before the house was created, and my aim for this collection in the next year is to introduce all the main characters in the first Donor House that would be there in 2008.

As with all of my collections the Donor House has changed a lot since I first started writing for it. When I first started writing the stories I had this image of a house that had been in use for centuries, but it turned out that I started writing right at the beginning of the timeline. I would love to write about the House in the future, and the vampires I’ve slowly been introducing, because I started this collection to explore the different ways the vampires deal with being what they are. The House itself was started as somewhere vampires who were having trouble being vampires could hopefully find a home, as well as somewhere vampires could begin integrating with humans. Writing about the characters in the House is something I really enjoy and as it’s also a favourite with others I guess I’m not the only one who enjoys this collection.

If you’re new to this collection I suggest you start here.

My next oldest collection, and the one that has changed dramatically since it was first thought up, is the Thear collection. Originally it started as a story about a number of girls who were sent to the planet Thear because there weren’t enough females there for all the males. There were arranged marriages and it was all very different to the collection it’s become, although I am also posting some AUs that show where I began with Thear. Now it’s about the three races who live on Thear – the Dorma, the Uisdro and the Tein-Igni. One thing I plan on doing relatively soon is going back to the beginning of the story and finding out why these three races ended up living together on the same island. I know at one point they got on well, working together to make a home for themselves, but things changed and that’s something else I want to explore.

Thear is easily my most religious world. Everyone here believes in at least one of the deities of Thear, although there are problems here caused by their religion, which is one of the things I’m exploring. As Thearan deities were also once worshipped on Earth this collection has a very close link with the Deities’ World collection.

Strangely the Deities’ World collection is one of my newer collections. I started working on it because Callidora, the daughter of Hades and Persephone, wanted me to start writing about her. The collection has grown as more deities have started pushing me to tell their stories, including Lucifer. I plan on writing about all of the Thearean deities, continuing to write about Callie, exploring the world a little more, and it seems likely I’ll end up writing about Archimedes (Callie’s older brother).

It’s also possible that the Deities’ World collection may start connecting with the Pagan collection. Paganism has always been something I wanted to write about, because I’m a pagan (although I’ll admit that I’m not a very good one), so I’ve been working on fiction for this collection for a long time. Anna, one of the main characters, has changed a lot during that time, and she’s now a girl with amnesia trying to work out where she fits in now that she can’t remember her family or old friends. She is one of the characters I want to throw into as many situations as possible to see how she reacts.

New to these collections? Start here with Thear; here with the Deities’ World; and here with the Pagan collection.

One of the things I love doing is writing characters with magic and seeing how it affects them. Three collections I’m writing fiction for have different magical systems: the Aurora’s World collection; the Heliopath’s World collection; and the Brotherhood collection. (I’m planning on changing the names of Aurora’s World and Heliopath’s World, because they were working names created using characters I was focusing on in the collections.)

The Brotherhood Collection is another one I’ve been working on for almost a decade. Originally it started out as a werewolf story, then it become about two different groups with magic fighting each other, and now I’m using a mix of both ideas, along with the Millennium Bug. The basic storyline is that children born after the year 2000 can have magical abilities and the Brotherhood want to collect them. Shapeshifting is one of the first abilities to maifest, which often has an adverse affect on the children with that power. Later on there are two distinct groups – the Brotherhood and Unity – who aim to teach the children how to use their abilities, but go about it in entirely different ways.

The Aurora’s World collection is relatively new. I started it because I wanted to write about magic being illegal and it ended up becoming the home of one of my most involved magical systems, where the magic a character has is related to when they were born. Every power they have, how it manifests, and when are all affected by the exact moment of birth. I’ve been working on it slowly, because making it’s not a simple way of doing things, but it is fun. Recently I’ve started exploring the other kingdoms and this has led to the introduction of the magic thieves. They steal power from those who don’t know how to use it, some collect magical powers, and their hideout was created using magic. Learning about them has been really interesting, so they’re definitely something I plan on exploring further.

The Heliopath’s World collection is also relatively new, but has gone through a lot of changes during that time. Originally it was a dream world, where characters lived two separate lives on in two places and the story I wrote was about what happens when those two lives collide. Now it’s become about addictive magic, which is something I’m still working on, but every spell a character uses leaves them with some form of withdrawal symptom and the harshness of that symptom depends on the strength of the magic. The other thing I’m exploring is about what happens when a group of magicians all live in one town and forget about what is happening in the world around them.

New to these collections? Start here with Aurora’s World; here with Heliopath’s World; and here with The Brotherhood.

A group of collections that are connected are the Fae World collection, the ‘Astral’ World collection, and the World Walkers collection. I’m still trying to work out if I should integrate the ‘Astral’ World stories into the Fae World collection, because I’m pretty certain that both the worlds were created when the fae were experimenting.

The Fae World collection is actually set in a number of different worlds, including Earth, due to the destruction of the fae’s home world. An overuse of the world’s magic led to the problem, because the fae had no way of returning the magic they used to the world’s core and didn’t want to stop using magic. Stories follow what happened to the griffins, a natural race whose home was the world the fae destroyed; the Dragons, a race created by the fae; the Shifters, who split between going with the Dragons and the fae; the merpeople, who went with the fae; and the twinned worlds, where Lena lives.

The ‘Astral’ World collection is about two different groups of people: the magicians, who have magic and live on Kalinia; and the thieves, who don’t have magic, want it, and spend the majority of their time trying to get it. but can only travel to Kalinia for short periods of time. I’m not certain I started with the right characters or in the right place in the timeline, but I do plan on exploring the creation of the thieves, how the magicians ended up on Kalinia, and exactly what the magic can do.

The World Walkers collection is about another group of the fae, the Thirteen Families, who buried their heads in the sand before realising they had no choice but to flee their home world. In order to stop the same thing from happening to their new world, Athare, they chose to create a web of worlds in the hope they can collect magic using that web. Currently I’m exploring a number of worlds, getting to know some of the races the fae created, and learning about all the different magics the races were given. No one really knows what’s going to happen in the future, especially not the fae, and the name of this collection comes from one of the most unexpected things to happen – the evolution of the World Walkers. The fae aimed to be in control of everything, but magic often makes decisions for them.

New to these collections? Start here with the World Walkers collection; here with the ‘Astral’ World collection; travel to the twinned worlds; meet the griffins; meet the merpeople; meet the Dragons; or meet the fae.

The Afterlife collection is one of my newer collections and I was originally planning on focusing on Caitlyn’s studies as she learnt to be a spirit guide. Instead Richard, who was originally a minor character, ended up becoming Death and taking over. I started working on this not long after someone close to me died, because it does help to write about the afterlife, and I’m glad I did. Somehow it’s become another reader favourite, so I often get prompts for this collection, and I plan on working on a lot more bonus material, as I’m writing about my view of the afterlife.

If you’re new to this collection start here.

The Magi collection is an older one and another that went through a number of changes. Thomar is the character who’s changed the most, because in his first incarnation he was not a nice person, but slowly he seems to have become one of my favourite characters and one I want to write about more. With this collection I seem to be beginning in the middle of the storyline once again, between when the Magi were kept as slaves by the Carne (Thomar is one of the Carne) and when they slowly begin to rebuild their relationship. The Magi are healers and known around the world for their abilities, but due to their past they refuse to help the Carne, until one Magi girl puts aside her feelings and does what she thinks should be done.

I plan on exploring the history of this world a lot more than I have done, especially the history of the Magi, as well as the other races and the magics of the world. This is one that doesn’t see to have become a favourite, although I love it, so it’s been on the backburner a little while I work on other things.

Start here with this collection.

My final two collections are both set on Earth, but they are alternate universe Earths. One is Kim’s Earth, where a population surge changed the world, and the other is a world where there is still an Inquisition.

Kim’s Earth is one that I want to work on more than I have. The idea is one I’ve had for a while – a man-made apocolypse, where the majority of people remaining are under sixteen. My apocolypse was an injection, created to stop Earth’s population from increasing for five years, that ended up killing everyone that had it. Of course there are conspiracy theories about whether the drug was tested well enough before the injection and some people take them seriously, including Kim’s father. She is one of the few people over the age of sixteen alive and ends up taking on the job of looking after a group of children, because they all look up to her. I plan on exploring this world a lot more, as there are other groups that I want to write about and I want to write about the future that they all have.

The Inquisition collection has a very basic premise – the Inquisition never ended. What would life be like if there was still an Inquisition, although this Inquisition is a little different. As I haven’t worked on this collection as much I’m not certain on some of the details, but it’s one I want to make more time for this year.

Start here with Kim’s Earth and here with the Inquisition.

I also write AUs and crossovers, because I love exploring different decisions my characters could have made, how they might have lived if they’d been born on a different world, what their story might have been if they were a different gender. If you’re interested in seeing more of any of these remember the prompts page, you can use the write more button that I have on the bottom of all my posts (every click equals 500 words), or you can commission me to write the story you’re craving.

If a story has already been written it’s going to be up for sponsorship. Every donation of £3 or more will gain the donor a perk and if you have no idea what you want to sponsor then you can ask for your donation to go into the general fund. If you’re low on money but would love to purchase some extra words then collect credits – every comment you make could get you one step closer to what you want.

Welcome!

It’s a pleasure to meet you. I’m K. A. Webb, a crowdfunded writer with a love of creating fantasy worlds, and this is the place to start if you’re new to my work. Here I’ll introduce you to all of my collections, my way of crowdfunding (because all crowdfunders work a little differently), and hopefully make things much easier for you than they would be if I hadn’t written this post.

Currently I write fiction for fourteen different collections. Some I write more for than others, because they’re favourites with certain readers, but it’s easy to get me to write more for your favourite collections. I have regular prompt sessions, as well as a prompt page for prompts outside of sessions; you can sponsor a collection so I’ll post more fiction;  you can rent a setting, adopt a character, or create your own ebook, and have fiction emailed to you. The majority of them are fantasy, because I enjoy world building, but my main focus is always the characters I’m writing. That’s a part of the reason I enjoy writing AUs and crossovers.

Most of my collections have been a work in progress for nearly a decade now. There was a time, before I started crowdfunding, when I thought my work wasn’t good enough. It’s possible I still would now if I didn’t have readers who tell me that they enjoy what they’re reading, but I started crowdfunding without knowing if I would succeed or fail, and that was terrifying. I have no idea now how I convinced myself – I’m just thankful I did. People do read my work, although I have no idea how many, and I’m glad I took the plunge.

The oldest collection I write fiction for is the Donor House collection. I started writing the first story for this collection when I was still at school, in a way that could almost be seen as writing serial fiction, because I used to write a bit each night and then my friends used to read it the next day. That was when I realised how much I enjoyed having an audience. Now my focus is the Donor House, which is set locally to me, although I do also write for the world outside the house too. In time I want to begin writing for the two other houses that are in the UK and I would love to have a couple of houses in other countries. At the moment I’m writing fiction from all over the timeline, including from before the house was created, and my aim for this collection in the next year is to introduce all the main characters in the first Donor House that would be there in 2008.

As with all of my collections the Donor House has changed a lot since I first started writing for it. When I first started writing the stories I had this image of a house that had been in use for centuries, but it turned out that I started writing right at the beginning of the timeline. I would love to write about the House in the future, and the vampires I’ve slowly been introducing, because I started this collection to explore the different ways the vampires deal with being what they are. The House itself was started as somewhere vampires who were having trouble being vampires could hopefully find a home, as well as somewhere vampires could begin integrating with humans. Writing about the characters in the House is something I really enjoy and as it’s also a favourite with others I guess I’m not the only one who enjoys this collection.

If you’re new to this collection I suggest you start here.

My next oldest collection, and the one that has changed dramatically since it was first thought up, is the Thear collection. Originally it started as a story about a number of girls who were sent to the planet Thear because there weren’t enough females there for all the males. There were arranged marriages and it was all very different to the collection it’s become, although I am also posting some AUs that show where I began with Thear. Now it’s about the three races who live on Thear – the Dorma, the Uisdro and the Tein-Igni. One thing I plan on doing relatively soon is going back to the beginning of the story and finding out why these three races ended up living together on the same island. I know at one point they got on well, working together to make a home for themselves, but things changed and that’s something else I want to explore.

Thear is easily my most religious world. Everyone here believes in at least one of the deities of Thear, although there are problems here caused by their religion, which is one of the things I’m exploring. As Thearan deities were also once worshipped on Earth this collection has a very close link with the Deities’ World collection.

Strangely the Deities’ World collection is one of my newer collections. I started working on it because Callidora, the daughter of Hades and Persephone, wanted me to start writing about her. The collection has grown as more deities have started pushing me to tell their stories, including Lucifer. I plan on writing about all of the Thearean deities, continuing to write about Callie, exploring the world a little more, and it seems likely I’ll end up writing about Archimedes (Callie’s older brother).

It’s also possible that the Deities’ World collection may start connecting with the Pagan collection. Paganism has always been something I wanted to write about, because I’m a pagan (although I’ll admit that I’m not a very good one), so I’ve been working on fiction for this collection for a long time. Anna, one of the main characters, has changed a lot during that time, and she’s now a girl with amnesia trying to work out where she fits in now that she can’t remember her family or old friends. She is one of the characters I want to throw into as many situations as possible to see how she reacts.

New to these collections? Start here with Thear; here with the Deities’ World; and here with the Pagan collection.

One of the things I love doing is writing characters with magic and seeing how it affects them. Three collections I’m writing fiction for have different magical systems: the Aurora’s World collection; the Heliopath’s World collection; and the Brotherhood collection. (I’m planning on changing the names of Aurora’s World and Heliopath’s World, because they were working names created using characters I was focusing on in the collections.)

The Brotherhood Collection is another one I’ve been working on for almost a decade. Originally it started out as a werewolf story, then it become about two different groups with magic fighting each other, and now I’m using a mix of both ideas, along with the Millennium Bug. The basic storyline is that children born after the year 2000 can have magical abilities and the Brotherhood want to collect them. Shapeshifting is one of the first abilities to maifest, which often has an adverse affect on the children with that power. Later on there are two distinct groups – the Brotherhood and Unity – who aim to teach the children how to use their abilities, but go about it in entirely different ways.

The Aurora’s World collection is relatively new. I started it because I wanted to write about magic being illegal and it ended up becoming the home of one of my most involved magical systems, where the magic a character has is related to when they were born. Every power they have, how it manifests, and when are all affected by the exact moment of birth. I’ve been working on it slowly, because making it’s not a simple way of doing things, but it is fun.

They steal power from those who don’t know how to use it, some collect magical powers, and their hideout was created using magic. Learning about them has been really interesting, so they’re definitely something I plan on exploring further.

Now it’s become about addictive magic, which is something I’m still working on, but every spell a character uses leaves them with some form of withdrawal symptom and the harshness of that symptom depends on the strength of the magic.
