Tales from The Goblin Pens

Post by Skarkill » Sun Jan 19, 2014 9:38 pm

Well I said I was getting back into wrieting Knightmare fanfiction...

So here is my first completed KM Fanfic in quite some time.


The Taking Of Motley


https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10035736/1 ... -Of-Motley


This tale tells the story of Motley's kidnap by The Opposition in-between seasons 6&7 of The Greater Game and also explains just how Motley knew about a certain Warrior-Thief even though he had apparently never met her before on screen.


Hope you enjoy.

:) :) :)

:) :) :)

Thoroughly enjoyed this, Ricky! You are so good at characterisation - I love it when I can hear every line in the actors' voices as I read them. Seashell! ;D So much attention to detail as well, lovely stuff. Made me laugh that old Count Brinkatore still doesn't get any actual lines! ;D

I have spent a considerable amount of time puzzling over the whole Motley & Stiletta thing in the past. Motley's first scene in Series 8 makes very little sense (contradicting itself several times) and it's even more confusing if you try to include Stiletta's TQ interview as canon! I came up with one theory about them having met in the past, then decided I preferred a different theory where they hadn't. I really like your vision of the kidnap plot and Stiletta's involvement, though - it's all very elegant and I can well imagine it happening that way! This is definitely one of my favourite fanfics. :)

Oh hey, you might be able to answer a query for me while I think of it... was it your own idea to make Grippa & Rhark brothers, or did you get that from an official source? I always thought I'd read it somewhere, but I can't find any mention of it in the show or TQ or the books, so I'm confused as to whether it's canon or something the fans invented.

:-[ :-[ :-[

Thanks for the high praise Annie.


I'm glad you enjoyed it. A second story is well on its way to completion and should be up before the week is out (Barring any unforeseen issues)


As to your query I'm not sure where the whole Grippa & Rhark being brothers thing comes from either. ???

I to seem to remember reading it somewhere but wouldn't like to swear to that fact. I'm tempted to say it might be from the KM Book The Forbidden Gate by David Morris but again not 100%.

He's back! I enjoyed this Aladdin's cave of retcon, including as it did a host of in-jokes that were particularly rewarding for your long-term readers. As someone who once wrote a Motley fanfic in which he barely appeared at all, I was pleased to see him taking centre stage here, so to speak. The Fear/Hands dialogue was marvellously written. Here's hoping there's plenty of goblin ink left in the goblin pens! And feel free to cross-post your fanfics to Knightmare.com (i.e. submit them as articles) too. Will the second story be Fidjit's Ill-Fated Search for Motley by any chance? ;)

Thanks David glad you enjoyed it and picked up on the in-jokes I scattered about the place. ;D

8-o Yeahhh no offence mate but I don't think I'll be using that storyline idea anytime soon LOL ;D


But yes, yes I can assure you there is plenty of Goblin Ink left here in The Goblin Pens (Rhark just got a years supply from Honesty Bartram) and just to prove it here are two more

Tales From The Goblin Pens :D



Silence Strikes Back


https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10052964/1 ... rikes-Back


In our first tale this time round Brother Mace's finds himself meeting an unwelcome face from his past and this person has evil intentions towards the jovial Tavern monk.

(Thanks have to go to David/Drassil for allowing me to use an idea he came up with in regards to two characters used in this story. Thanks again mate.)




So You’ve Returned…


https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10052978/1 ... e-Returned


And our second tale finds Daisy meeting some strange spectral figures in the Quest Hall of Dunselhelm Castle...but Tregaurd knows who these strange visitors are.

(Just a short little scene created to rectify something that bugged me about the Geek Week episode)


Again hope you enjoy these tales, there's more in the works.

Yay, another great piece of writing. :) I don't think Pixel has appeared in many previous stories, so it's nice to see her in this one, and the redeployment of Gretel works surprisingly well! (I had forgotten that little detail from David's fic.) As usual you totally nailed the various characters' personalities.

Ha, this is very similar to a scene in the fic I'm currently working on! The setting is different, but you envisaged and described it in much the same way that I did. :) I like the explanation as to why Daisy hadn't seen them in the Geek Week episode! A nice little sketch, especially the ending.

Do keep up the fabulous work!

Thanks again Annie for the feedback

(and for adding me to your favirot authors on Fanfiction.Net :D )

I'm glad you liked both the use of Gretel & of Pixel in this story. I wasn't sure I had got the character of Pixel quite right so gratifying to know someone thinks I have. :)

Hahahaha Nice! (or LOVELY. Which ever you prefer)

Great minds think alike ;D

Well Mi'lady Canadanne your wish is this Goblin Master's command, I'm spoiling you this week.

(Because I'm going be busy this next week and a bit, possibly even two weeks, so I won't be able to do much writing for a while and want to get these two stories started to keep me motivated during this unplanned hiatus.)

So here are the first chapters of two more


Tales from The Goblin Pens


In which I introduce two new villain characters. Well after all I am an Opposition Minnion hahahahahahaha! >:-] >:-] >:-]


So lets start with Chapter 1 of


Everybody Has A Price


https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10056163/1 ... as-A-Price


In our first tale this go around a Baron obsessed with wealth has a Business Proposition for Tregaurd but when The Dungeon Master turns him down The Baron finds someone else whom he can manipulate and bribe into doing his dirty work for him.



and next we have Chapter 1 of


The Lord Of Tricks


https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10056165/1 ... -of-Tricks


In which the Knightmare realm becomes the playground and its denizens the playthings of a twisted Warlock who just loves to play mean spirited tricks on anyone and everyone only his tricks might just prove to be deadly for some....




As always please enjoy these offerings. There will be more forthcoming once I get this next week and a bit out the way including:


The coninuation/conclusions to these two stories.
A Grimes Fairy Tale given a Knightmare Twist
A Story starring a rather underused Hag from Series 4 of KM


and maybe even, if the Powers That Be spyglass signal His Lordship intercepted is correct, a return to action for a Pair of Dungeon Ranger's who's adventures I used to chronicle in The Eye Shield Fanzine ;)


But for now The Goblin Pen is going into temporary Temporal Disruption.


See you all soon though


GOBLIN FODDER.

This wasn't inspired by the recent Tomb Raider discussion was it? :) The quest object reminded me of that.

Rothberry is another character that hasn't appeared in many fanfics. Loved his reactions in that scene, they were so amusingly *him*!

Nice to see Theodora and Stiletta together in a scene! The choice of guard was an unexpected bonus... I would love to see Fear's impersonation of him. ;D

Looking forward to seeing some book characters in the second story!
