    Summary

    A modern, Hobbit variation on the Scottish ballad "Tam Lin", and an AU of the Ettelëaverse, though you don't need to read any of the other stories for this to make sense.

    Lorna, newly come to her sister's little town, hears far too many stories of (and warnings about) the forest at the edge of her granny's land. Naturally, she has to investigate, but gets more than she bargained for in what -- and who -- she finds there.

    Summary

    From the blazing heat of Jerusalem to the wind of the Scottish Cheviot Hills, Rey has followed Master Luke over an ocean. He has promised her the gift of reading, but occupied with border skirmishes, she has largely been left to sew and brood.

    Restless one morning, she ignores Master Luke's instructions and leaves the castle to explore. Once in Carterhaugh woods, she incurs a debt to a figure trapped between two worlds; although she doesn't know it yet, he is running out of time, and she may be the only one able to bring him back.

    Summary

    When strange lights are spotted over Carterhaugh, Jan and her friend Andrea pack their gear and go UFO hunting. What they find is alien, but not in the sense either expected, and Jan’s life soon becomes far more complicated that she ever would have thought (or wanted).

    Being stalked by a hot Elf isn’t nearly as much fun when you’re asexual.

    Features: UFO hunters, conspiracy theorists, a Volkswagen Thing, and an eighteen-pound cat who wants to eat Tam's face.

    Yeah, he doesn't know what he's in for, either.

    Summary

    Do not go to Carterhaugh.

    That is the warning Wanda has heard all her life, and she does not, still, know why. She has heard the stories, of the ghost of the old warrior that wanders there, made winter’s soldier by the whim of the Cailleach Bheur. She knows that even the hunt skirts the forest’s edges and never follows the deer that dive through the brush into it. Even Pietro, her own dear daring brother, will not dare enter it's woods.

    But she must go to Carterhaugh.

    Summary

    The Queen of Faerie wants to get rid of a guest who has outstayed his welcome.

    *

    Advisory: It's not actually as alarming as some of the tags make it sound! Non-sexual bondage, implications of the painful effects that the canonical metamorphosis might have on the human body, references to sexual harassment, dehumanising language.

    *

    For Rune, who suggested that Queen of Faerie/Tam Lin would be scary. This is as close as I managed to get.

    Summary

    'Roxbrugh he was my grandfather...' Janet discovers which Roxbrughe, and legal issues arise which have the potential to put Jarndyce v Jarndyce in the halfpenny place.

    *

    to havisham's prompt.

    Advisory: one reference to the canonical abortifacient herb.
