Title: Schrodinger's Cat

Kekeke. Oh. Um. Beware sex, violence and a singular obscenity. Wootwoot.
Wow. Just wow...

Poetry
'Blood Branches and a Line of Leaves'

WARNING: extremely pathetic in relation to other major works on this thread, and no I am not just saying that.


NB: Epic-endural is separate as I presented it upside down, due to the nature of the poem and the issues it refers to.

The Family Tree was placed at the beginning to explain the format of the MW.

Here is my Major work + reflection, if anybody is still sifting through this thread
but to warn some, the content of my short story can make some feel "alienated", although i have softened it up a little from what i could have done to it, i can't really explain unless you read a bit of it.

its just a story!

and BTW, i really like Ennaybur's style of writting in A Fool's Journey, laid back and not to assertive, thats how i describe it anyway

HinikuTheNinja, love your story 2, as if Evangelion wasn't an influence

I havn't actually read the stories above all the way through, its late at night, will do in morning

anyway, criticism and comments welcome

I'vev only just discovered this section of the website and, well, if everybody else is brave enough to post their own stories up, there is no reason I should not be.

I am not always my own worst critic, but I cut myself down time and again during this whole process, and all the feedback I have SO FAR received has all been (mostly) positive. There is one section that is perhaps what is best defined as "dodgy" but it is only a little piece and I do not think it detracts greatly from the essence of the work.

Also, I'm not one hundred percent confident on my reflection statement, but unforeseen circumstances resulted in a, shall we say, rush to finish it.

Title: Farangs
Medium: Short Story
Synopsis: "Farangs" focuses on the cultural and psychological differences between Westerners (notably Americans and Australians) and those of the Thai culture and nationality. I like to think of it as a story of self-discovery more than anything, but also as a commentary on stereotypes. You may or may not agree with me, but as it is my work, well, that's all there is to it.

I had a bit of criticism that my chapter titles were perhaps a little didactic - but if it appears thus to anybody else, it was intentional. Everyone else that looked at it said they were excellent chapter headings, so, as I agree, that's good enough for me.


If nobody can access these it is also available to read on my MySpace blog:

Much like MisterPresident I have only just discovered this thread too! After reading as many of the posted MW's as possible, I thought it was time to post my own.|

Let me first say that I am incredibly anxious about what I have written. Concerns about whether or not the subject matter is too derivative, the theme cliched or the writing just plain crap - have plagued on my mind since I handed it in. I have had mostly positive feedback from who I have shown it to, but friends and family aren't quite as critical as fellow peers.

If you can find the time to read it, I would appreciate it immensely and feedback would be an added bonus that wouldn't go unnoticed :)

Medium: Short Story (Suite Of 7)
Title: Memento Mori "Remember You Are Mortal"
Synopsis: A critique on the way Western society is affected by individual choices examined by character relationships which echo the notion of the Seven Deadly Sins as represented in literature across time. To steal a quote from my reflection statement "My major work is an exploration of humanity. It is a fusion of my world and the society in which I live. It is a representation of how I see the world through a medium of creative composition."

My 2006 film can be found here

Title: mors omnia vincit
Medium: Film/Video
Synopsis:
mors omnia vincit (Latin for 'death always wins) is a short film dealing with the ways in which people deal with death in different ways. The film is heavily based in renaissance-era philosophy and modern existentialism.

My teacher was happy with the end result, but I think it's a bit too full of metaphors etc. as oppose to my usual, more linear style. Let me know what you think :)

Mine's called 'Que(e)rying the Body' and I would really like to know everyone's opinions on it. Please comment!
Did anyone reply to this?
Anyway I just want to say I enjoyed your essay. You've obviously done a lot of reading. And for our age this is a great effort.
Actually I don't really agree with your essay, or rather I don't know what point it really makes, but I know how hard it is to sift through high level essays and try to make a point of your own.
Anyway, it was a pretty engaging read.

Well done Calvin! You did a great job! I enjoyed it, and the large amounts of research and pure enjoyment of writing comes through clearly. Sometimes your language was slightly overwhelming because it became a bit ornate and verbose, but you still conveyed your research and opinions in a sophisticated way. yay! :)
