THE BOOKSHELF




WELL BRAVE WANDERERS, IT SEEMS YOU HAVE FOUND THE LIBRARY, TOTALLY BEREFT OF ANYTHING OF VALUE BUT FOR A FEW DUSTLADEN BOOKS SCATTERED ATOP A SPLINTERED, COBWEB-DRAPED BOOKSHELF ACROSS THE ROOM. CURIOUS, YOU ENTER.




FIRST, YOU PICK UP A LARGE MUSTY BROWN BOOK AND BLOW AWAY THE COBWEBS WITH A QUICK BREATH. A FIREBREATHING DRAGON APPEARS FROM THE EMBOSSED LEATHER COVER. THE LETTERS STILL DIFFICULT TO SEE, YOU RUB YOUR THUMB ACROSS THE TITLE, REVEALING THE PARTIALLY OBSCURED WORD, "FANTASY".

THE FANFICTION DUNGEON




SETTING THAT BOOK ASIDE, YOU SPOT AN INTERESTING LITTLE RED BOOK, NEARLY LOST AMONG THE OTHERS, A FADED GOLD RIBBON DANGLING FROM THE SPINE. LIFTING THE BOOK IN YOUR HAND, YOU WIPE THE DUST FROM THE GILT LETTERING WITH YOUR FINGERTIPS, REVEALING THE TITLE, "BOOK OF VERSE"

THE POETRY GARDEN




LETTING YOUR EYES SLIDE OVER THE REMAINING DUSTLADEN BOOKS SCATTERED ACROSS THE OLD BOOKSHELF, YOUR GAZE FREEZES ON A SHINY BLACK BOOK STANDING UPRIGHT, INCONGRUOUSLY PRISTINE IN THE COBWEBBED CORNER OF THE SHELF. YOU PULL THE BOOK FROM ITS PLACE, TURNING IT OVER TO VIEW THE COVER. STARTLED TO SEE AN EYE STARING AT YOU FROM THE CENTER OF THE COVER, YOU DROP THE BOOK TO THE FLOOR. HEART POUNDING YOU LOOK DOWN AND SEE THAT WHAT YOU THOUGHT WAS AN EYE WAS ACTUALLY A GOLDEN ORB ORNAMENTING THE LEATHER COVER. OR WAS IT...? PLAIN AS DAY, THE TITLE GLARES AT YOU IN BOLD RED LETTERS, "TALES OF THE UNEXPLAINED".
