clare_dragonfly: This is ridiculous. What am I doing here? I'm in the wrong story. (Into the Woods: wrong story)
It is the day of Beltane, and I ride at the head—almost—of the Hunt.

Our real leader is my childhood best friend, Tanis, she of the red-gold hair and bone-fair face.

On the eve of this day I pledged to be her helpmeet, to ride at her back and aid her in her goal. I do not think she needs my help, for her steed is lithe and strong, and it is all I can do simply to stay close to her. But, though we have grown apart in recent years--she with her trolls and kelpies, me with my selkies and human children—she is still my best and oldest friend, and I would do anything for her.

Ayda was seventeen when the idea first came to her. She and her sisters—all but the youngest—had gone up to the surface, only the five of them with no guards, as was their prerogative now that they were old enough. They could see the surface roiling, the wind and the rain whipping it up, and when they came close enough, the bright flashes of light striking the water. This was their favorite time: the storms on the sea.Read more... )

Title: A Rose But Only Two
Word count: 3969
Rating: soft R for heavily-implied het sex
Prompt: [personal profile] smw requested “something folklore-ish.”
Notes: I have been wanting to do this mash-up for ever and ever. And I finally figured out how. :D


Lanie waited until everyone else had fallen asleep before she got up again. She knew her father and sisters were all asleep because she had heard all of their doors open and shut, and her father always fell asleep as soon as he went to bed; she remembered trying to get a drink of water or another story as a child, and she would always have had to wake him up.

Then it had frustrated her, but she had only been a child, without a mother, and she had wanted her father’s attention to always be on her. She still loved him, but now she was glad for his prompt sleeping. As she quietly dressed and pinned her hair up, she listened carefully for other sounds, in case one of her sisters had awakened, but the house remained silent.

She crept downstairs and took the satchel that Cook had made up for her. The family had once had many servants, but now that they had lost so much Cook was the only one left, so she was sure of him sleeping, as well. She’d told him she was leaving in the morning, quite early, to look for a job, so he’d put together some food for her to take with. It wasn’t much, but hopefully it would be enough to get her to Ranhight Manor.Read more... )

Hi and welcome to my Dreamwidth journal! The main thing I post here is original fiction.

My work is posted with varying degrees of privacy. If nothing is listed after the summary, it is a public piece. If it says "locked," then you must be on my access list to read it (usually this is because I want to keep rights of first publication intact). If it says "sponsor this," then the beginning of the story is public, with the rest of it waiting to be unlocked for a donation!
