I always said while I was writing Catania’s Forest that it would turn out to be the best thing I’d ever written, or the greatest fail in the history of my pen-and-inking. I believe it has turned out to be neither. I like to think it’s rather a nice story, but it’s definitely not my favorite thing I’ve written–and most of the characters did something that made me broiling mad at them, sometime during the process. But here I am, with a fully written and somewhat edited story. 😉
Picking favorites of my writings aside, I’m quite happy. And I’m quite excited to have a new story to post!
This story is more intense than most things I usually write, so younger readers should probably discuss it with their parents before reading it. If parents would like to read about the content, they can click on the link below. It does include some spoilers, but not very big ones.
Why do I always end up rambling on and on like this, when I start posting a story? Well, without further ado, here it is. I’ll be including two maps I drew at the end of all the posts, if you get confused. Click on them to see them bigger.
Catania’s Forest: The Little Drummer-boy in Narnia ~ Part One
Catania hardly dared to breathe as her brown eyes unblinkingly tracked every move of the unknowing stag. She slowly drew her arrow back to her pointed ear. The stag remained unmoved, listlessly grazing. He was almost invisible in the dim, leaf-choked light of the forest at what must be nearly twenty-five yards. The young elf had never shot a deer at such a distance, but she was afraid to move closer.
