A friend once asked me why life couldn't be nice and simple and straightforward.
I didn't have an answer at the time, but I've been thinking about it.

If life was simple, would we ask "What if...?"
If life was uncomplicated, would we imagine?
If life was easy, could we dare to dream?
Adversity creates heroes.
Will you listen to their tales?
Do you dare to dream?
For without dreams,
The belief that the impossible can be probable,
We have nothing but cold, relentless reality.
Welcome to a place where the two meet, and blend:
Norcumi's Library
Welcome to the dreams of gargoyles, shadowrunners, pure fantasy and sci-fi,
As well as the reality of a mildly antisocial female surviving life after college.
The line separating them is sometimes hard to find.

An actual update is here! First off, the 2004 Gathering of the Gargoyles has come, been great, and gone. So there is now a Con Report in the rants area. 82 pictures included/linked!

Also, there is a new piece of writing in the Other Fic area, called Almost Home. I'm not directly linking to it because the description warrents a look-see. It's down at the bottom of the page, so hopefully you'll enjoy.

Gargoyles Fan fiction for the Disney cartoon.
The Sentinel Jim, Blair, and the rest of Major Crimes takes on angst and adventure with a thoroughly natural edge - a Sentinel.
Shadowrun Tales from 2058, when magic and machine combine in the shadows of a world ruled by corporations.
Fantasy Stories from my strange version of magically medieval worlds.
Other Stuff Anything that doesn't fit the other categories.
Hall of Shame
My bloopers! Partial fics, unfinished pieces, and general rejects.
The Gallery
Pictures Art! Some people were kind enough to send me pics of my characters, as well as some of my own art (heavens help us all).
Places you might enjoy escaping to.
My Shelf
A general page for rantings, info on the site, the author/webmistress, and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. Also some character profiles.
Tayda- a new pet project eternally in progress. Mix fantasy, an obsession with 3s, a wanna be comic, and no artistic skills together, and this is what you get.

Questions? Comments? Anything but pleas for money? Talk to me! Please! Just send it to Norcumi@backtick.net. I will keep writing, and the only way to make it better is to tell me what I'm doing wrong.
