    Awesome! I love how you make those words, but don't make them totally strange. They are at least a little close to the real thing.

    Fire and Ice 3, Violet

    That morning, when l woke up, Alanna was still as dead as prok*. I laughed and watched her sleep. It was calm in the forest doma*, which was strange. Usually, chrikites* could be heard chirrruping* in the forest doma, but it was silent. I just couldn't shake the feeling that l was being watched. I jumped once Alanna yawned and stretched, startling me. She looked at me like l was a glancia* and then asked, "How long have you been in the waking state?" "Only a couple of minities*," l replied. She nodded. "I can't shake the feeling we're being watched." Alanna shrugged her shoulders, and we continued our journey. <br><br> We did not see any more faerie rings, and had an easy journey through the doma until midday. I still felt like we were being watched but ignored the feeling. I trudged through some dried laves and poingas* and sighed. I moved through another pile, and a net sprang up around me, pulling me up to the top of the tree where a cage formed around me. Alanna tried to climb up the tree to get me out, but as soon as she hit a strong enough branch, a cage sprang up around her too. Ah the irronicality*. <br><br> [[l use many references in this chapter. Here are the words: (they are *) prok- (sounds like rok with a p before it) a rock ~~~ doma- (dome/uh) a domain ~~~ chrikites- (cri/kites) crickets ~~~ chirruping- (onomonopea) the sound chrikites make ~~~ glacia- (glay/she/uh) an alienic creature from the North Fey damico* ~~~ minities- (min/i/tees) minutes ~~~ poingas- (poin/gos) pine needles ~~~ ironicality- (i/ron/i/cal/i/tee) what Violet and Alanna use for irony ~~~ damico- (dom/i/coe) region of the Fey world]] <br><br> ((l will not continue until l have three comments on each chapter))
