Drake the Dragonheart:
I don't have an answer but would still like to pose one of my own.

I quest of love ends with me, yet I am made endlessly. If I drop I say my name. If I touch rock, freedom gain.

A ring? I'm not sure if love really ends with it, but it's kind of like the final objective before marriage. It's endless because it's a circle and it makes a ringing noise if you drop it. The last part is throwing me off though so I don't know if I'm right.

Yes. a ring is the answer. In the game the riddle comes from, the person who tells you the riddle is stuck inside a boulder, and touching a ring to the boulder releases him. Hence the "If I touch rock, freedom gain."

You only see me at night, and I am white or yellow coming towards, and red if going away or in the same direction as you. What am I.

Is this related to a car? A think it must be the light of a car. At night, drivers turn the lights on. If you're in front of a car and the car is approaching you, then you see the yellow or white lights (Headlights?). And when a car is getting away from you, you will see the red lights (Taillights?). Am I correct? And sorry for my english.

Either the cars on the road, or the flashers on the posts on the side of the road.

Ring riddle off Pool of Radiance.

As for:

F.Dubois:
The bird without feather sits on the tree without leafs.
The maid with no mouth came and ate the featherless bird.
Bird and Maid, who might you be?

Edit: It's the reflection of a duck on the water.

I got one.

I fight for what's right, and I fight for what's wrong.
Brighter than the sun am I, yet at the same time darker than the darkest cave.
I am the weakest of all things, yet within me lies the ultimate power.

What am I?

Not what I had in mind, but a good one. Take another guess.

The human heart

Wary Wolf:
The human heart

Ding ding ding ding! You got it. I thought that one was kind of obvious.

True enough. I like to think laterally though. Could have just as easily been something along the lines of human nature, the soul, the mind or human love, frailty or condition. The metaphors surrounding the answer make it a little more broad. Still, it's a good one.

I am both above and below you at any one time
I am obvious before you, as you're reading this rhyme
To know what I am, heed these words:
I have something in common with the darkest of birds.

Well, seeing as it's a little slow, the darkest of birds is a Raven

Wary Wolf:
Well, seeing as it's a little slow, the darkest of birds is a Raven

That's one thing that tripped me up, I couldn't decide if the darkest of birds was a Raven or a Crow.

Is the answer Death?

Fits really well actually, but no.

Sorry, I also realize it should read:

I can be both above and below you at any one time.

Wary Wolf:

Well, this is just a shot in the dark, but is the answer Darkness/blackness?

Nope

Note that I have specified a raven and raven specifically. So what is something that is (un)commonly associated with ravens?

Also I make an assumption that the object in question is obvious before you. It really depends, but I think nearly everyone on this forum would have this in front of them.

I'll give you another guess, then I'll let you in on my weird logic. Unless you want to keep trying...

Eh, it's probably something I'll be like "ooh! I SHOULD have known that!" but I'll give. What is it?

A desk.

Sorry if you were typing on your laptop on a bearskin rug there ;)

Because I'm a meanie I added the Raven line as homage to Alice in Wonderland's riddle:

"Why is a raven like a writing desk?" Which insinuates there is something in common with both a raven and a desk, even if it is an unanswerable riddle :P

Was hoping someone would make the connection there though. But that's what I get for trying to come up with my own riddles...

I say have another go. Give me more time to think up a more logical riddle o_0

I actually am using a dresser to put my computer on, and I haven't seen anything Alice in Wonderland related except for Kingdom Hearts (which I'm actually playing right now, hence by previous riddle) since I was, I don't know, 5 or 6.

Okay, here's one.

It is filled with everything, and yet at the same time filled with nothing.
We know a lot about it, yet we know so little at the same time.
So much of it seems so chaotic, yet there is an order to it.

What is it?

Eh, I was looking for "the universe" but that's pretty much the same thing.

Okay... Got any more riddles?

hope this one is a little more logical

my work is subtle, but not hard to see
and to everyone, i am key.
to be professional, prioritize,
my regular use. i capitalise.
to those with rage i am abused,
but here and now i am not used.

The shift key/caps lock key?

Too easy! I need to get out so I'm not making riddles about things I'm seeing right in front of me ;)

Wary Wolf:

You know, you nearly stumped me. I didn't even notice you weren't capitalizing words until I thought about it for a while.

I'll go with one I think should be easy:

It is the realm of sadists, altruists, geniuses, and fools.
Anarchy reigns there, but sometimes there are rules enforced with an iron fist.
Much joy may be found there, but also endless hatred.
Beings like Gods reign there, but they are no better than the ones over which they rule.

What is it?

I'd go with the mind, or perhaps the imagination.

Other fits would be something like morality or faith.

Nope, guess again.

A riddle forum?

Wary Wolf:
A riddle forum?

Actually, just "forums" in general is what I was going for, but good job. I figured that would be easy enough considering we are there.

I thought I'd be more specific. I knew what you meant ;)

This one at least is not something that's not in front of me for once.

I am what I am, when I'm in my prime.
I'm not what I am, at an earlier time.
Hated by poets, loved by seamen.
Produced by nature, picked by yeomen.

I doubt this is it, but the only thing that comes to mind is oranges for some reason.

And orange is absolutely right. Your subconscious is telling you things...

Typical. If I'm not making riddles about things right in front of me. It's about food.

Wow, I was just going with a complete shot in the dark. BTW, when you respond to me can you please quote me so I know you've done it without having to check this thread regularly?

Let's see...

White picket fences and apple pie,
but without this the picture doth lie.
We constantly get rid of it, but seek to keep it around,
it fills the neighborhood with an unbearable sound.

What is it?

I suck at rhyming.

Very sorry. Will do.

You know, I don't do this very often, but LOL. We constantly get rid of children?

Heh, I swear I read it wrong. My reading was that you do eventually want to get rid of your children by allowing them to leave the nest as it were.

Next guess would be serenity
