Meet the Author

Henry Rider Haggard was born at Bradenham, Norfolk, to Sir William Meybohm Rider Haggard, a barrister, and Ella Doveton, an author and poet. He was the eighth of ten children. He was initially sent to Garsington Rectory in Oxfordshire to study under the Reverend H.J. Graham but, unlike his older brothers who graduated from various Public Schools, he ended up attending Ipswich Grammar School. This was because his father, who regarded him as somebody who was not going to amount to much, could no longer afford to maintain his expensive private education. After failing his army entrance exam he was sent to a private ‘crammer’ in London to prepare for the entrance exam for the British Foreign Office, which in the end he never sat

    Boy of fire, girl of ice: the prophecy by summersnow

    Prolouge: A very old, withered man wearing a ragged cloak stepped out of his cottage. His cottage was located in the frigid conditions of the South Pole. The wind blasted and snow fell heavily. An aged, bent-over woman stepped out of her cottage at the North Pole. She was wearing almost the same thing as the man. They began to speak simultaniously. "The boy of fire and the girl of ice/ must unite/ to stop the fight/ and end the strife."...
    Chp.1*Jaq speaking* Hi. My name is Jaquline Froste. But, call me Jaq. Yeah, I know. Jack Frost, Jaq Froste (its pronounced frost). My parents gave my crazy uncle naming rights for some reason. He thought it was funny. Ha, ha, ha. But a couple of days ago, I found out my nickname had a purpose... *Blaise speaking* Hi. I'm Blaise Heerth. Recently, I've met a girl named Jaq Froste, found out I'm supposed to save the world, started a fire with my hands, AND still had to do homework. So, it was a snowy winter day. It was January 5th, 2789. It was Friday so, almost everyone was in a good mood...
    Chp.2 *Jaq speaking* I threw a snowball at my best friend, Anna. It hit, right on target. She shrieked and started making a revenge snowball. She missed, though, and hit a red-haired boy that had been walking behind us with his friends. "Oops! I'm sorry."she exclaimed. "Oh, its fine."the boy responded. While he was speaking, the any part of the snowball that landed on his skin was melting REALLY fast. Also, did I hear the snowball sizziling? Only I seemed to notice and he might have noticed but, I'm not sure...*Blaise speaking* "Huh. That was weird. The snowball melted right away" I thought. Then, "Oh, well." I shrugged it off and hurried to class. Mr. Swoy was going to be so mad if I missed calcus.
    Chp.3 *Jaq speaking* Later in the day, something really weird happend to me. I was walking home from school. There was a puddle of melted snow. I was wearing boots, so I decided to jump in with Anna. We both jumped in and splashed around. When we got out of the puddle, I realized that it had turned to ice! Anna didn't seem to notice so, I didn't say anything about it. I didn't want her to think I was crazy. We had only been best friends for a little while.
    Chp.4*both speaking* That Friday, I had a weird dream.*Jaq speaking* An old lady appeared to me. She was very wrinkly, like she was someone's grandma. She was very kind. Her name: Morgan. Morgan told me about a prophecy, although she didn't give me the exact words. It was about a boy and girl with powers that are supposed to save the world. I'm worried the girl is me. Because I don't think I can save the world and do school at the same time.*Blaise speaking* In my dream, an old man came to me. He said his name was Merlot. I think I've heard that name before but, I can't remember where. Anyway, Merlot also said that a girl and a boy would save the world with special gifts that had been given to them. I asked him, "How do you know?" He replied,"A prophecy." Then, he left before I could ask him if the boy was me. I woke up, wondering if the dream was true........ thx for reading this. I'm sorry if i didnt follow all the rules but, i couldnt find all the rules. I want UR honest feedback and opinion. Should i keep going? If i did would you read that? What would make this story better? Im thinking of trying to publish something like this. Except longer, of course. Plz tell me. You can tell me here or at fire and ice res1. Thank you again.

    Sunsetflower's path by Cora

    The first thing at birth Sunsetkit felt was wetness. And warmth. Strong warmth, and suddenly she felt sturdy things beneath her, and something attached to her body behind. An opening in her face opened, and a shrill sound issued from it. There was a smell wafting toward her, something soft and sweet and comforting. She squealed, and something wet closed around the nape of her tiny throat. "Here," a deep, gentle voice mewed, a voice that was so kind, Sunsetkit wanted to pull it closer about her. "Look at this one! Beautiful stripes. What shall we name her, Nectarblossom?" Sunsetkit scrabbled toward the sound of the voice, and the wet thing clamped her neck and pulled her closer. Fluid gushed into her mouth. Something rough and wet brushed her face, and she was gone.

    She woke up later. The two flaps that had prevented her from seeing loosened, and soon Sunsetkit was no newborn. Her dancing green eyes and orange-brown-white-and-yellow striped fur put a purr in everyone's chest. She loved to run outside the nursery as soon as she was allowed. Goldenclan was extremely unique in kit-bearing, and an average litter was 10-15 kits each. Sunsetkit soon met her brothers and sisters: at least 12. Butterflykit, Olivekit, Graykit, Coalkit, Orchidkit, Mintkit, Herbkit, Bearkit, Swirledkit, Moonlightkit, Popkit, and Wingedkit were all of them. They got up to many adventures, like putting a live mouse in the elders den, so Stormyfire, an elderly shecat, woke the camp up at nighttime with a fur-raising shriek; and stuffing thorns in the fresh-kill, so many a clan cat was found digging furiously in his dinner, trying to dislodge the thorn that had pricked his tongue, and many more. Finally, the time came when Sunsetkit was six moons. Her mother smoothed back her fur and proudly, standing near her parents, Sunsetkit felt happy. Slowly all of her brothers and sisters were given mentors. She was given Birdflight, a lightning thin brown shecat with gentle amber eyes. After years of training, she finally became a warrior, Sunsetflower, renowned among her fellow apprentices for mischief, bravery, and plain spunk. She was as beautiful as her mother and adventurous as her father. That was when her journey started. "Wingedhawk, want to hunt?!" Sunsetflower called to her older brother, running over with a purr. Wingedhawk ran to her excitedly. "Guess what! Spottedface is having kits!" Spottedface was the most beautiful shecat in GoldenClan. Wingedhawk was her mate and he considered himself lucky, as she had had many suitors in the past. "Great!" Sunsetflower called, running past him to the camp entrance. "I'll hunt, and you meet me by the oak tree when you get your paws free of fatherhood!" She purred, but as her paws entered the camp entrance, the purr died in her throat. A black cat stood there, emitting a dark sort of mist. "What d-do you w-want?" Stammered Sunsetflower, quite afraid. And the cat lunged at her and all she felt was darkness. Suddenly an image appeared. She was in StarClan, and she was soaring above it. "StarClan will fall," cackled a voice. Sunsetflower slashed at it, and the voice howled. Then she was in StarClan. "You have killed the leader of the Dark Forest," mewed Silverpelt. Sunsetflower left for her clan and soon later, the word spread of the dark forest leader dead, and Sunsetflower became Sunsetstar after her leader. Even later, she had a mate and kits. She died in peace, being well-known in her clan, and Starclan.

    A Silver Rose... -Jaysoar ((Prolouge))

    Silverpaw raced out of the apprentices' den and jumped up in excitement. Todaty is going to be her warrior ceromony! She raced back in forth through the PetalClan camp. "Silverpaw?" Ivydapple, Silverpaw's mother, padded p to her. Silverpaw turned around, her sharp green eyes shimmering in glee and excitement. "Yes?" Silverpaw asked. "Don't forget you still need to do the warrior assessment first." Ivydapple reminded her. Silverpaw nodded her head quickly. "I know! I kow! I know! I know!" She kept meowing in a high-pitched voice. Ivydapple chuckled. "Just be ready because it is going tostart at sunhigh- whoops! It's sunhigh right now!" Ivydapple corrected herself. Silverpaw jumped up in excitement as Dawnblaze, Silverpaw's mentor, padded up to the two she-cats. "Are you ready?" She whispered in Silverpaw's ear. "Yes!" Silverpaw yelled and stomped the ground. "Follow me." Dawnblaze ordered and raced out inot the forest with Silverpaw close behind. ---------- "Now, Silverpaw, you have to try to catch prey all by youself." Dawnblaze told her as Silverpaw sat down, but her green eyes sparkled in excitement. They are next to PetalClans' hunting grounds and now standing in a sandy ground. "But I will now tell you tips about how you can hunt better..." Dawnblaze continued but Silverpaw didn't hear her. Dawnblaze's voice was blocked out by her thoughts of being the best warrior. She can imagine it now; being deputy, taking over the clan as clan leader, battling out. "...and that is pretty much it." Dawnblaze's voice reached into Silverpaw's mind. "I'm ready! I'm ready!" Silverpaw yelled out before she raced out into the forest. ---------- Silverpaw was doing a good job on her assessment so far. She has caught two mice and vole. Out of the corner of her eye, a small brown figure lays motionless on the hunting ground. Silverpaw immediently gets into hunting position and creeps over to it. The brown figure, which is a mouse, heard Silverpaw and raced away, revealing a silver rose. Silverpaw never seen anything like it. It's petals were a pure silver while the stems and leaves sparkles in their regular color. Suddenly, a large, sharp pain crashed into Silverpaw's mind, then she black out. ----- "is she awake?" A voice rang out. "Is she dead?" Another voice echoed through. "No, she's waking up right now." Another voice meowed. Silverpaw opened her peircing green eyes to see three cats in front of her in a small twoleg nest. Silverpaw screamed and scrambled up to her paws so she could run away, but a massive black figure pinned her down on her belly. "What are you doing?!" She yelled. "Shut up." The first voice snapped. "You saw too much." Silverpaw looked confuse. Is he talking about the mysterious silver rose? "Yeah!" The second voise jumped in. "So we need to kill you!" The third voice, the one cat pinning her down, snarled. "You can't kill me!" Silverpaw cried. "My clan needs me!" The first cat snorted. "Stories. Do you think we believe you?" He snorted. "But It's true!" She meowed and jumped up, knocking the third cat off of her. The two other cats pinned her down again. "Kill her, NOW!" The first cat ordered the second and third cat as they realease Silverpaw. Two jaws struck her muzzle and heaved her away. "But you need to listen to me! I won't tell anyone!" Silverpaw promised but the cats ignored her. They carried her into a metal cage and shut it then bring it in front of a cliff. "Let me go!" Silverpaw cried. The cats push her off the cliff.

He felt a jerk on his fur and was hauled inside the den "Ashkit" a white cat hissed "what where you doing outside?" Ashkit looked at his paws "Im sorry Snowlily, I just wanted to look" Snowlily glared at him "go to sleep" she hissed and went back to her own nest worry melting of of her pelt in waves. He lay down by his littermates and closed his eyes, but like always bad dreams, nightmares haunted his dreams. His mother melting into the black flames screaming his name, and he sobbing and lunging for her, only to be held back by hi leaders strong paws "its to late Ashkit, she's gone". 'Its to late.....' the words echoed in his mind, 'she's gone' but she wasnt, it wasnt to late he could have saved her.....<br>Thats what he was thinking when Nightstar called him to come foreward to get his apprentice name Nightstar the cat who held him back who didnt let him save his mother......<br><br><br><br>DONT KNOW IF I WILL CONTINUE DEPENDS -FALCON

    Smoke prolouge

    A small kit stood on the peak of a small hill. Raindrops caressed her face and thunder boomed in the sky. Her light-gray fur was matted and her flank was covered in scratches. She tried to walk forward but stumbled, landing in a puddle. Her weak mewls of help were unheard. Well actually that is untrue, one cat heard her, and this is her story. --- Daisyrain awoke. Above thunder crashed in the sky. 'Starclan is angry,' the cream she thought, 'but then again why shouldn't they be? Scarstar is a terrible leader, taking over all four clans and making us all work. Too many have died, countless lives are being thrown away. Queens are forbidden to have kits unless he gives his "permission" and even then they become his property.' Daisyrain sighed and pulled her aching limbs out of her nest. Blood trailed from a wound on her back leg, the wound was from being beaten by one of Scarstar's gaurds. She grimaced and forced herself out of the den. Her cream paws soon turned a dirty brown color from the muddy ground. The cold element worked itself between her claws making walking unbearable. 'If I stop to get it out Scarstar will beat me again, and no one will stand up to him," Daisyrain sighed, everyone was afraid of Scarstar. He was muscular and large in size. Even Starclan was terrified. Daisyrain was the only cat who had ever tried standing up to him, and it had not turned out well. A pink gash was all that was left of her right eye, Scarstar had taken it in anger of her defiance, as a warning to all other cats. She was now closly gaurded and was forced to sleep away from all of the others. "Traitor," her guard, Shiningdeath, hissed, "scum." Daisyrain ignored him, knowing that a response would get her punished. "Daisyrain," a sickly sweet voice rang out, "my den please, we need to talk." Daisyrain stopped in her tracks, it was Scarstar.

    Firedawn ------------------ by Bluejay

    Firedawn - by Bluejay
    ((Keep in mind this is only a part one...))


    He smiled to himself, watching from his perch in the oak tree the slowly progress of the soilders. Their silver armor flashed in the sunlight, their swords clinked as they trudged on, and their leader's horse led the way down the forest path. Warrior after warrior marched past his hiding place—there were about thirty in all—not bothering to look for the archer hidden in the huge leaves of an oak.
    He was dressed in strange attire for that time—a pale brown robe, a dark brown cloak, and a pair of leather boots. Over his shoulder was slung a quiver filled with blue-feathered arrows. Strangest yet was the mask of blue feathers that covered his face, and the bracelet of blue feathers on his right arm. His true name, none knew but himself. His "fake" true name was only known by one other, and his real fake name was known throughout the kingdom—snarled in rage by the king, Winygath, muttered by the grumpy soilders, whispered in fear by the peasants, and sung in songs by thd minstrels and storytellers. Yes indeed, he was "popular" among many.
    The hidden bowman drew two arrows from his bow, placing one in his mouth for later use, and nocking the other to the string of his trusty oaken bow. Drawing back the bowstring, the cloaked stranger aimed his arrow at the leader of the soilders—proud on his fiery gray stallion.
    With a sharp and sudden twang, the soilders stared in astonishment as their leader fell from his horse—which was whining shrilly—a blue-feathered arrow protruding from his exposed throat.
    Panic began to race in their hearts, for they knew this ment one thing.
    Bluejay was here.
    Bluejay the archer—his real name unknown, famed robber and archer, his skill unmatchable by any except for his longtime partner—Firefoot—who wouldn't be far behind.
    Bluejay—still hidden in the tree—launched three more arrows, and three more soilders fell. Slinging his bow over his shoulder, the bowman unsheathed his sword from his belt, and leapt from the branches of the oak. Exploding from the bushes on the other side of the road was Firefoot—fiery-haired, fiery-eyed, and fiery-tempered, he lived up to the nickname the peasants had given him. With a battle cry, Firefoot leapt forward, broadsword in hand.
    For this was their work.
    To plunge fear into the hearts of Winygath and his shoilders, to steel money and food for the peasants from the rich soilders, and to restore justice to the plagued kingdom, where justice had become scare.
    And ridiculed.

    Tell me if you'd like more!!!
    And thanks for reading.

    Life or death part five

    Jessica tried to hide her fear. How was that possible though? She found out her dad was a spy she was hated by the biggest criminal in the world lost her partner and now was tied up in a room filling with posinous gas. The only thing she had in her defense was a knife on her belt. She couldn't cut the ropes with it though her hands were tied on a post above her. The gas touched foot and she fell to her knees. Suddenly she had a plan. She grabbed the knife with her teeth then her hand reached it. She loooked arround the gas was near her. Time was running out. She swung the knife and missed but her wrist got cut instead. "F*** you Austin." She muttered. He was the one who took her father seperated her from her partner and ruined her life forever. She swung the knife again and the rope was cut. She was free! Stilll sick from the gas she ran to the door. Of course locked. She had two choices:die a slow and painful death or jump out the window. She'd rather do the latter. By the time she was ready she heard a voice . "What the hell she escaped!" She froze it was Austin's assistant. She looked down it was two storys drop. Too late to back down. She flung hetself of the window and landed with a thud. All her wounds were bleeding again. She broke her leg. But who doesn't when they fling themselves off a two story building? She was sick from the gas. She was dizzy and weak. She stumbled into a hole and it all went black. When she woke up she tried to get up. But her long blonde hair was only filled with oil. Then she figured it out. There was a car on top of her. 'Typical Austin a car on top of me!' She thought. Threee hours later and no escape plan. She was running out of time and oxygen. She started screaming every swear word she knew . Then she calmed down.The car suddenly moved. She quickly pretended to be dead." She's dead!" A voice said. "But she's still breathing!" Some one protested." Not for long let's go." Relived, Jessica got out of the hole. She tried to walk but then she remembered. Her leg was broken. She couldn't walk but could she crawl? She got on all fours yes she could but slowly. Eventually , she ran into some ones legs. Looking up praying it wasn't Austin,she saw her partner Justin. "Oh my God Justin I haven't seen you in forever!" She had met Justin when she first started hiding. He had told her he was her dad's partner's son and they had made a pact about them sticing together if Austin found out they had childern. She wasn't fond of him att first but then, that night when they were making camp they kissed and she decided to make him her partner and her boyfriend. Justin had agreed. Sure, there were othrr cute rich eighteeen year olds out there but she wad convinced he was the one. Then they were seperated by a fire but they found each other, but this time she was kidnapped by Austin and she was convinved they would never see each other again but he found her. "Jess get in the car." He said. "Why?" She asked. "They have your dad and they're torturing him! We have to find him before it's too late!" He said. "And how do we do that?" She asked meanly. "I'm pretty sure we need bait and what would we use?" She quickly added. "Welll," Justin said. "I was thinking maybe you."END OF PART FIVE.

    A passion by scarletheart

    Savannah and her cousin Lily were sitting in the floor of savannah's room. Both of them had great dreams and wanted to have a great career in music. Their cats bullseye and flowerface were on the floor next to them. Savannah was a guitarist and singer and lily was just a singer. Both of them have had devastating lives. That is one of the things that got them both interested in music. Lily was great at writing stories so she wrote the songs. That day they were talking about going to nashville and trying to get signed on a contract. They were trying to figure out travel. Since savannah and lily could both drive they just needed a vehicle. Savannah's friend jordan was going down to nashville that weekend so he gave them a ride. Their first gig was at a cafe in downtown nashville. When they were up their singing they just let go and let their spirits soar. They felt so free and so happy. Afterwords a man came up and said your preformance was wonderful and I want to sign you into my records. Great they both said where do we meet you. Actually the guy said I am in he middle of making mine. Can you wait a few weeks. Savannah wanted to try again and move on but lily had a good feeling about him. Lets just see how it goes she said and they agreed. After a few weeks the man introduced himself as Johnny Graceland. They started out recording with him and they had so much fun. Soon they came out with their first album Stars Beyond Skies. That day they sold 1,000,000 copies. At their first concert lily found out she had a problem with her heart. The doctor said she could never preform. Lily with the help of savannah stayed with singing and went on tours. She completley ignored what people said she couldn't do. Soon they were worldwide stars. Lily and Savannah started getting letters saying how much disabled kids looked up to them. And those kids persued their dreams just like those two girls with a dream. After all that critizism they kept going. They both fellt so good and they kept singing until they were unable to do it anymore. Savannah and lily became a power duo and even though their parents left them to fend for themselves they left the past behind them. The passion both of them shared making them stars and letting their dreams come true. The thing tha they learned was sometimes waiting gives you a better chance of winning. They wrote all about their breakups and terrible lives. When something you do inspires others it makes you feel so good and lily and savannah learned that through their fans and their music. Many people can say you cannot do it but the one thing those two girls lived by was BE UNIQUE. No matter how much people make fun of you always come back and show them they cant hurt you. That is something that half of their songs were about was no one can hurt them by what they say.
