    Summary

    “You shouldn’t be in the woods of Edmund,” said the woman again.

    “Hey, I own these woods,” said Hilda, rolling her eyes. “Or, well, my family does—House Goneril, you know—but that’s basically the same thing, right?”

    “The Beast of Edmund owns these woods.”

    Hilda laughed. “I don’t see any beast.”

    Hilda goes into the woods one day to find a rare flower—and winds up meeting the mysterious yet intriguing Marianne. Or: Tam Lin, but if Tam Lin was an awkward horse girl and Janet was an ignoble noble craftswoman.

    Summary

    At the joining of the two worlds, there is a wood through which two rivers run. They cross only once, and only on the shared banks of both waters can the leaves of lethe grow fertile. 

    The plant itself is for forgetting, but the seeds hold the memory, affix it in the mind. They are sought after by the old and forgetful, those who have been injured, and those who fear for a time when all that they know will disappear. 

    There, at the rivers' cross, a hero is at a very different crossing-- near the end of one quest, and the start of another. 

    For he is of one world, and the seeds he is after are guarded by a creature of the other, and they, like the rivers, were destined one day to meet.

    Summary

    A GabeNath retelling of Tam Lin, because I listened to like 12 different versions of it the other day and it stuck in my head. So if you’re familiar with the story beats, you know what to expect, though it starts in a rather grim place with Gabe going off the rails after Emilie’s death, and probably won’t get better until chapter 3 or so.

    I’m writing this for NaNo and posting chapters whenever it feels like I’ve written a reasonable chunk of what happens next. Hopefully I will finish this because I know where it’s going, unlike those other two GabeNath things I’m writing.

    Summary

    Crowley rounded the desk once Aziraphale had planted himself in the swivel-chair, sitting down on the edge of it so that Aziraphale’s access would be hindered. No, this couldn’t continue.

    Aziraphale finished tapping a stack of loose invoice-copies against his thigh, eyes questioning.

    “You don’t have a cat to sit on your work,” Crowley explained, regretting how pathetic that sounded, but the endearing furrow of Aziraphale’s brow was encouraging. “How’s a snake?”

    “I’d rather you in my lap,” Aziraphale said, cupping Crowley’s face in both hands, “but this will do.”

    Summary

    The gates of St. James’s Park were locked by the time they arrived, but such a barrier posed no obstacle. They cleared the bars with a thought, passing through like ghosts.

    “Let there be light,” Aziraphale murmured. The walkway ahead was cast in a bluish glow.

    Crowley hissed, recoiling slightly from what lay a short distance ahead. “They’re here already.”

    Aziraphale took several steps forward, squinting. The bridge wasn’t quite visible, but the reddish aura emanating from the vicinity of the water was unmistakable.

    “Stay behind me,” he insisted, continuing to walk. “Under no circumstances take the lead.”

    With a touch of weary sarcasm, Crowley chuckled. “Get thee behind me, Satan, is that it?”

    [Now complete! Be advised that the rating's between M and E. Thanks to all who wanted to see us work together again; our first collab is here.]

    O I forbid you maidens all

    Summary

    Legends speak of the white gems of Lasgalen, formed of pure starlight. They lie at the bottom of a pool in a hazel grove in the far wood. But the grove is guarded by the Thranduilion, Legolas Greenleaf. They say he has skin of paperbark birch, the hair of willow leaves, and limbs of vine and sapling. He is wild and timeless, and from all who pass through the glen without the Elvenking's permission he will take their ring, their green mantle, or their life.

    Summary

    Two miles was further than it seemed from the vantage point of Titus’ back; by the time he arrived at Carterhaugh’s outer reaches, Proko was practically out of breath.
