Many moons ago, back in 2006 ish, me and Erin started writing a fanfic with own original characters, based on The Chronicles of the Cheysuli series by Jennifer Roberson. Title is a direct quote of a saying in the books, meaning "The fate of a man rests always within the hands of the gods". Section with (one asterisk) * before it = written by Erin, section with (two asterisks) ** before it = written by Mira.
For a quick recap of what the Cheysuli are about, if you haven't read the books: the Cheysuli have been blessed by the Old Gods, and usually only males are able to have a Lir, meaning they can bond with an animal/soul companion that they can communicate with. They can also transform into the shape of that animal. So a small tribe of nomadic shapechangers struggling to survive, living in a medieval setting, ish. Without giving away too much of the plot in the book series I can say the not so magically inclined people are hunting down the Cheysuli, because of reasons.. ;)
Lir-speak marked in italics.

But in the end, he had bitten off the words and sent her away, cursing himself for a coward, knowing that the longer he continued the ruse, the harder the truth would become.
