Genre: Contemporary fantasy
Summary: At full moon, a were-moths biggest problem may be realising how much humans suck.
Notes: Based on a title the Pulp Titles Generator spat out. :D
Warnings: Killing of insects and implication of violence against humans.
Words: 248

In someone’s garden, a moth sat on the bark of a tree, and waited for the moon to clear the next roof.

It was nervous, which was unusual for a moth, and angry, which was even moreso. Something was wrong. More complicated than it should be.

When the moon illuminated the tree and the moth, turning brown wings grey, the moth grew. It shifted some feet to a crack in the bark to take its growing weight.

The emotions became clearer, and thoughts joined them. It’s a trap. It looks like a moon and its a trap.

The moth let go, and fell on just one pair of knees. Its middle limbs were almost gone, its wings small in relation to its body and useless. It stretched, and grew, straightening up, using the tree to prop itself up.

It peered at the house, cautiously, not wanting to be seen until it had grown to its full shape.

A blueish lamp hung on the porch, its light attracting night-flying insects, killing them when they touched it. Humans. They were not even there, they just hung it there to kill, kill, kill.

The moth’s hand, covered in fine, grey-brown fuzz, but big and square and strong, flexed slightly on the bark. I can tear the thing down.

The moth grinned, a feral expression that just seemed to come with the teeth. It ran its short tongue over them. They might tear flesh, if the lamp-setters came out.

Setting: ?
Genre: Fantasy, Fairy Tale, depending on your definittion Romance
Summary: A woman wakes up after 100 years with patchy memory, and still hopes to find her bethroted
Words: 987

I remember passing through a town that swore they’d had a “sleeping beauty”, who had been on display in a glass coffin in the city hall for a century. They had at least half a dozen stories how she got there - her parents insulted a fairy, her father cursed having a daughter rather than a son, you know the kind.

All the stories agreed that she did wake up after a hundred years, and was, like you are when you sleep too long, not entirely clear in the head.

And here’s a story of what happened afterwards.

Wiki in general
pros:
  • MADE FOR interlinking
  • features like automatic TOCs for a page, categories...
Online Wiki
pros:
  • I already have a start
  • Reachable from multiple computers
  • I can show it to other people, or make it private
cons:
  • needs internet access
  • the "this is public"/"this may be public again in future" WILL get in the way of taking spontaneous notes.
  • Needs to be updated for security, and if the add-ons I used to get the structure like I wanted it grow incompatible with the later versions, I'm shit out of luck.

Offline Wiki
pros:
  • Doesn't need internet access to work on
  • Not public, so no reason to feel self-conscious about what I put in
  • optional: I could keep a complete wiki offline, and copy "clean" enough stuff to an online wiki, without having to change formatting (beyond removing links to not-yet-existing pages)
cons:
  • Without additional work, only available on one computer
  • Needs a webserver to run
  • I'm not sure I can build the setup I want again, because of aforementioned "add-on-not-compatible-with-recent-version" problem

Scrivener File(s)
pros:
  • Doesn't need internet access to work on
  • Not public, so no reason to feel self-conscious about what I put in
  • Relatively easy to get the whole thing into a printable format, should fancy strike me that way
  • Without additional work, only available on one computer (but I've already set up dropbox synching for the fiction Scrivener files, so I'd say it's easier than for the wiki)
cons:
  • I haven't really figured out links yet
  • No "compatible" online version
Evernote
pros:
  • Editable from multiple devices, including my phone
cons:
  • Need to either keep it on a separate account from my normal one, which is a bit of a pain to switch between, or keep stuff on the account I have already, mixed with cooking recipes and such
  • I don't even know if I can link between notes.
....

Any comments, thoughts or suggestions?
