    Summary

    What would the song 'Michael row the Boat ashore' mean, to someone who knows nothing of the myths behind it? And how would we explain it, in this day and age? This piece answers the second question, as posed by the budding hero Nathan Ransom to his mentors…

    Summary

    I have always wanted to translate this German folk tale about the beautiful Lau, a water-woman, who lives in the most beautiful well I have ever seen. You should definitely go and see it for yourself in reality if you have the chance. Or maybe go*gle it :-) Her watery home, the Blautopf, is truly beautiful.

    Summary

    I am a reaming hornyman, I ream from town to town,
    And when I get a bit of skirt I'm willing to sit down.
    With her legs up on me shoulder, and me dick all in me hand,
    It’s round the country I will go, a reaming hornyman.

    Summary

    “Have you tried magic?” asked the three-eyed raven.
    Shunsui’s guts churned. He turned his face to the side and let out a half-hearted groan, part pain, and part exasperation. “No such thing,” he said.
    “No?”
    “No.”
    “You’re talking to a bird, and you want to tell me there’s no such thing as magic?”
    “Damn straight.”
    “You,” said the raven, “are holding onto a lot of contradictions, my guy.”

     

    Or, a retelling of Archie Fisher's folk song "The Witch of the West-Mer-Lands," featuring Kyōraku Shunsui, Knight of the Order of the Spring and His Majesty’s Keeper of Shadows, and the white-haired Witch who heals a few wounds that even Shunsui didn't know he bore.
