    Summary

    On the first day of Sal's quest, she was optimistic, or as optimistic as anyone in search of an honorable death could be.

    It was a nice fall day, the air crisp and the sky clear. Her cloak was warm, and her boots were sturdy. Her pack was fairly light on her back, even weighed down as it was with rations. Her great-axe—may her smith mother never know—made a decent walking stick. The clan's soothsayer predicted the weather would hold for the next week, at least.

    All in all, it looked to be shaping up to be a decent adventure.

    Halfway down the mountain, she fell and broke her neck.

    Summary

    He turns onto his side, trying to get comfortable in the old bed, and finally fades into sleep with the comforting weight of his dog curling up into a tight little knot at the back of his knees.

    It's breakfast before Joe remembers that Turkey died twenty-four years ago.

    I just like the fun in this. And its setting too: just a hint of modern Worst Witch, Britain peeking through.

    We had a lot of good cherry tree 'fics this exchange, but I do like the development of this one, and the sense of ... quietness in it. It feels right for a tree.

    Imaginative, and written with both care and affection.
