Write A Plot From The Title (Writing Game):

 26 Ars Thaumaturgis, Thu, 14th Feb '13 6:26:31 PM Relationship Status: I've been dreaming of True Love's Kiss
Another Music In A Different Kitchen

The story of a man coming to terms with changes in his life — shifts in his marriage, deaths in the family, the slow changes in his body as he grows older — and most saliently the recent death of one of his children; his path is aided and mirror by events from his childhood, threaded to the present by the music that his mother used to play as she worked in the kitchen.

An inventor discovers the technology to record and replay dreams, and markets it under the brand name "Dreamhold". However, this innovation's sale is soon banned after hackers reverse engineer it's programming to allow it to read others dreams from great distances, creating a major security issue that could potentially let out classified secrets via the dreams of government officials.

Hannah Moider is a lucid dreamer who is hired by the CIA to plant false positives into the readings of terrorist organisations "Dreamholders", but as she explores the world of this technology further she discovers something. By chanting the a pell she found in an ancient book at the back of the library ("Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right B A") before she falls asleep, Hannah discovers she can allow her lucid consciousness to enter the workings of the "Dreamhold" machine itself, and from there, the internet and the technological world as a whole.

PLEASE! I SUFFERED THROUGH A BIG MUSICAL NUMBER JUST FIVE SECONDS AGO!"

Ever Decreasing Circles

 43 Ars Thaumaturgis, Mon, 18th Feb '13 5:11:20 AM Relationship Status: I've been dreaming of True Love's Kiss
A scientist creates a device that allows him to travel to other worlds. His first few trips are awe-inspiring, showing him places that seem impossible, incredible. He might stay longer in each, but the device has a... quirk: it cannot be turned off, indeed, attempting to do so would catastrophically collapse whatever world the user were inhabiting at the time. Further, the device automatically activates once it charges sufficiently, and is keyed to the scientist's biometrics, forcing our scientist into each new world.

At first this doesn't seem too bad: our scientist's work predicts an infinite number of worlds, so he could presumably keep going for the rest of his life. What will happen once he dies is something that he dares not think further on.

But another problem rears its head.

With each new world, he seems to see in the night sky fewer stars. Of course, the inhabitants of each world don't see anything out of the ordinary: things are as they have always been for those that live there. Eventually he finds himself near enough to a researcher in astronomy to get a meeting before his next departure, and learns that, in this world, the estimated size of the universe is far, far smaller than in ours. Our scientist makes a leap of logic, and realises the reason for the diminishing stars: each world is smaller than the last. Over the next few worlds, he gathers more data, performs the relevant calculations, and finds a terrible truth: in only five more jumps the world will be only the size of the solar system. On the sixth, there will be no space for both Sun and Earth...

Where The Heart Is

 46 Ars Thaumaturgis, Mon, 18th Feb '13 5:32:52 PM Relationship Status: I've been dreaming of True Love's Kiss
A dark short story in the manner of Poe, dealing with a man beset by supernatural terrors inflicted upon him by the spirit of a distant ancestor. Consultation with a psychic reveals that all of that ancestor's remains were burned to prevent his return, but that one part was missed: his heart. All that the psychic can say on the location of the heart, however, is that it lies in the family home.

Our protagonist, harried by increasingly powerful and frightening apparitions and menaces, now searches his ancestral home — a sprawling mansion — for the hidden place of the heart, guided only by the faint whispering moan that emanates from it...

The Harbinger of Strange
An ancient coven of vampires faces a schism. On one side is the older generation of vampires, ones who were turned up to several thousand years ago and have a powerful attachment to tradition and their notions of "pure"-blooded vampirism; on the other is the younger generation, being only a few decades or a century old, which sees the elders' reluctance to move forward as spelling doom for vampire-kind. The young vampires want to turn people and bring more vampires into the clan, but the elders see this is a corruption of their purity. The story opens with a young vampire being tried in a vampire court for the murder of one of the elders.

Meanwhile, across the seas, a new threat to vampire-kind emerges... An ancient dynasty of werewolves with world domination in mind...

The Forests of Silence
You need an adult.
A comic about a dryad who takes interest in a person traversing the woods where she lives in, considering that her home was considered a very dangerous place. As one would expect, there are few words, as the dryad cannot speak and we are not privy to her thoughts, while the traveler is silent save for the occasional pant and grunt.
