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!

Daughters of Clio is a weekly prompt group I started with Lyn, Tara, and 'Trix. Technically this week is my prompt, so I don't have to write for it, but I felt like it anyway. The prompt is "the cave in the hill by the water."

Daro grabbed her hand. "Come on! I found it last year, it's really cool!"

Gerda allowed herself to be dragged along--Daro's hand was warm and strong, and she liked the way it nearly enveloped hers--but she wouldn't go without protest. "We're supposed to be watching the carts! We can't just leave!"Read more... )

Yeah, this was totally going to go somewhere, but... I got bored. Let me know if you're interested in more!

The story the Sefadare tell their children:
In the beginning of time, the Goddess lived with her two sons. They wished to provide all things for her comfort, so one autumn at harvest time, each brought her the fruits of his labor. Sefa, who was a farmer, brought her corn and vegetables; Kuni, who was a herder, brought her goat meat and milk.

The Goddess was pleased with both gifts, but greatly delighted with Sefa's, and she chose to take him as her lover. Kuni grew furious with jealousy and killed his brother. Grief-stricken, the Goddess cursed Kuni to always wander the world, never settling in one place.

But in the spring, Sefa lived again, growing up with his corn in the field. And the Goddess, and his people, rejoiced.

The story the Kunidare tell their children:

Kuni, who was a herder, brought her goat meat and milk; Sefa, who was a farmer, brought her corn and vegetables.

The Goddess was pleased with both gifts, but greatly delighted with Kuni's, and she chose to take him as her lover. Sefa grew furious with jealousy and killed his brother. Grief-stricken, the Goddess cursed Sefa to grow roots, never to see new sights or learn new tales.

But in the spring, Kuni lived again, born with his goats in the field. And the Goddess, and his people, rejoiced.
