I have unicorns in my story. Here is a description of them:

"It's a delicate little thing," Gerwen had said, "with pink hooves and a flowing white mane. Unlike the deer, it has only one twisted horn in the center of its forehead, and it has a long tail like the horse. It makes only soft whooshing sounds; except when it is in pain, it screams like a woman."
"But here's the best part," he had continued, "there is only one way to catch a unicorn. A pure young maiden must go deep into the forest, and then sit absolutely still. It may take minutes, it may take hours, it may take days, but if she is perfectly quiet, the unicorn will come to her. Then if she is gentle to him, he will let her do whatever she wants with him, and he will only leave her if she tells him to."


When my MC girl is young, she goes out into the woods and tries to catch one. She thinks she sees something white approaching her in the distance, but a squirrel makes a noise suddenly, causing her to jump. When she looks back, the white is gone. The unicorn comes back into the story near the end, serving as a powerful symbol of the girl's purity.
In this world, unicorns are so rare that the younger generation is not sure they exist. Only the old people, like Gerwen, know they are real.
Are any of you using unicorns in your stories? Please tell me about them, or ask questions about mine.

I have unicorns! They come from a setting I started developing when I was ten and didn't realize that unicorns are supposed to be all white. So mine have different colors.

I like the pink hooves of yours and the woman's scream when they're in pain. They're cool little details.

Thanks! I don't see anything wrong with different colors of unicorns. It's your world, after all. But you probably knew that.
I suppose my unicorn is very traditional. I don't think his horn has any powers, though.

I'm leaving for a while, I'll be back in the morning. :wave:

Haha, yeah, when I discovered that unicorns are traditionally pure white, I thought about changing mine and then realized I liked them better colored and I could do whatever I wanted.

Unicorns are mostly just animals in my world. They are symbols of purity and righteous power. I do have them in my head as white but I may use other colors. Their horns are clear, white or blue.

I've always liked unicorns.
Do your unicorns have "beards"?
Also, -just fuel for your imagination- in some pictures, unicorns actually have split hooves like a goat or deer instead of regular horse hooves.

No, they don't have beards. I know that in some early illustrations of unicorns, they look more like goats, but I decided that a horse-like unicorn suits this story better.

Have you read my story, yet? It's in The Fireside.

I have unicorns, but they are brown and hairy and ug. My dwarfs ride them when they play their messed up version of polo.

So, are your dwarfs evil, then? I don't have any dwarfs in my story.

Nope, no unicorns here. Do the unicorns have any special powers?

Their only power is the ability to sense a girl's virginity. Do you think they should do this by smell, or by some sixth sense?

Well technically-... never mind, let's just go with that... *slaps scientist half of my brain*

Could you possibly finish your sentence, Riniel? This is a made-up world, remember; my unicorns could have amazing noses if they needed to.

Yeah, but I think the sixth sense thing works better. You could make the smell work, but it would be harder.

No, believe me, I don't think you want to know. The sixth sense is a much better idea. :)
