    Summary

    The Scottish fairy tale Katie Crackernuts, as it happened in the 500 Kingdoms. In which: - Two stepsisters get along just fine, thank you; - A prince succeeds in writing good poetry, Godmother Elena has concerns about a coworker, A lot of people on a long trip speak in (I hope) not-too-impenetrable accents, A unicorn shows up quite late in the game and fails to advance the plot at ALL, the Tradition manifests itself more physically than usually, and the matter is concluded to most people's satisfaction. With a brief guest appearance by a creation of Christina Rosetti's.

    I'm told my stories get moving slowly - if you like plot more than character you may want to start at Chapter 4 and see if that works.

    Summary

    Hadn’t the forest bandits learned better than to attack the castle on a dark and stormy night? A sunny day would work much better, not nearly as much Tradition behind it.
