    Summary

    The stories are all the same, anyway, he thinks: tales about the old gods, tales about when the People lived forever, tales about Lavellan’s flight from the Dales, tales about when elves lived in cities.

    ***

    An exploration of Dalish folklore and how Lavellan's relationship with the People's stories has changed through his life, with a particular emphasis on fixing some VERY ANNOYING plot elements tied to those stories. SPOILERS FOR THE ENDGAME OF DRAGON AGE: INQUISITION, especially in later chapters (when they are posted).

    Summary

    Aoife Olette is an orphan, raised in the belly of the city's cathedral and ever in the shadow of the Maker. With her head lost in fairy tales and stories of the past, she knows little about the world, but all that changes when the young orphan is framed for the murder of the inhabitants of the cathedral. Forced to abandon the only home she has ever known, she is joined by one of the only friends she's ever known, as the two of them seek to prove her innocence. Joined by a man on the run with a past he won't speak of, and the spoiled son of the Lord of the Sands, the four of them will be tied together in more ways than they realise, as they endeavour to discover the truth behind the plot they find themselves embroiled in.

    Summary

    I love folklore a lot. And I really, really adore dirty folk tales. It was INEVITABLE, when I started writing "Gift of the People" that I would write a naughty Dalish folktale.

    I don't think this really fits into that work ... but I certainly couldn't deprive you of it.

    Summary

    The path is gone. No trace of it between the gnarled roots of oak trees casting lacy shadows on the forest floor. Darcy steps carefully over a tumble of rocks, that might have once been a wall and now stand as the marker where the veil is thin. Parkland becomes the wild woods of the stories held in memory, and tattered books rotting with age.

    ---

    Summary

    There was a legend between the gods. That when the red moon has risen, and everything is enshrouded in darkness and chaos, the Fifth Horseman would arrive. It was tale long before the earth was formed. Everyone thought of this as a myth, a tale to spread fear in the gods. The gods laughed it off thinking it was nothing but a fairy tale.

    It was not so. Not for one Seraphina Pitchiner, Goddess of the earth, and Mother to all Nature. Not when visions began to come to her in her sleep. She would bare the child whom all would be subjected to cower under. This child would bring death to those that walked in its path.

    So when Seraphina found herself pregnant with the child of a unknown stranger. She hid herself from the world and every god out there, thinking no one could nor would ever find her. She was wrong. Terribly wrong.

    Summary

    One dark autumn night in the Shire, a rejected suitor leaves a harvest festival with a heavy heart - and a head swimming with eerie stories. Particularly of a new terror never seen in the Shire before: the ghastly spectre the locals call the Faceless Horseman.

     

    Those familiar with The Red Book of Westmarch will recognise this as a rustic, romanticised, and garbled hobbit-centric account of certain alarming events that occurred in the Shire in the autumn of TA 3018, on the eve of the War of the Ring.

    Those familiar with more recent literature will note that this story bears such a strong resemblance to the plot of Washington Irving's story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," one realises Mr Irving must have had some passing acquaintance with Middle-earth folklore.

    Summary

    Jean is a brat stranded at the seaside in what he's completely sure is going to be the worst summer of his life.
    Marco has eyes like deer and freckles like stars, and smells like salt and the sea.
    Both are boys far from home for very different reasons; but home doesn't always have to be somewhere so much as someone. Especially when the sea hides secrets and strange things that are sometimes forced to come ashore.

    Or; in which one Jean Kirschtein's ruined summer is vastly improved by a certain Marco Bodt.
